1/26/2020: had a dream that i was trapped in a school building bc i was at an awards ceremony and someone brought a gun and was like. tracking me down to kill me and i managed to disarm them but when that ended i wanted to go home but each exit to the school led into another school dnd in one case jotaro was staring meanacingly out of the only door and on the other side was dio. i only managed to escape by checking for a homestuck 2 update where everything unfucked itself and the homestuck 2 site redirected to super homestuck 23, that my wife jackie, and someone i didnt recognize, were writing and the moment i saw jackie in the dream i ran to hug her but she didnt recognize me :pensive: she still hugged me back tho
1/25/2020: i had a dream jackie and i were on a competitive team for bad video game brawlhalla and we were in the most 80s-ass basement ever with like. wood panelling that smelled like smoke for this competition and when we won the other teams had trapdoors fall out from beneath them and they were fed to the big w8r monster in half life that i dont remember the name of (its an icthyasaur)
1/25/2020, again: i dreamt i was alone in this big circular field that was. kind of like a baseball field but not for baseball, it was surrounded by suburban houses, and the sun was going out. not down, out. and when it finally extinguished the minecraft ui popped up and from the houses a fucking ton of minecraft villagers spilled out, and astronauts landed, like. people in space suits. and the music playing is like this. drone of a high b, on a piano except every so often itd drop like. B / B / B... B / B C Bb and it was REALLY fucking eerie. and its dark and hazy and its like. cold in the fiction of the dream and extremely hot in real life and the villagers and astronauts started attacking me until i found the Muscle Sacrifice villager who i had to like. kite and poke at with what was like a baseball bat, but not until i knocked off one of the skulls impaled wholly through its arms and when i tried to circlestrafe around it it just cut me off, lifted me up and flipped me over its shoulder and i assume i died because i woke up.
1/15/2020: had a dream i went fishing with rikka takarada from ssss.gridman and she kept fishing up like. puzzles. at one point she fished up a rubiks cube and we had to figure out how she did it but i got a bite at the same time she started talking so i had to look away from her in-universe subtitling
1/4/2020: had a dream i went back to high school but while under extreme duress and i was packing my own lunches and my lunch consisted entirely of a tub of jalapenos soaked in brine i wound up trading to some teen. when we went back to class i played a minecraft mod that made it more like left 4 dead but the nether was changed to be this decaying forest, and there were these squids that would fly close to you, and youd have to back off from them or get killed but most importantly they had these really complex tendril anim8ions that like. warped the original model. anyway after that i went home and played minecraft again except the mod i played in school was like. half-installed. you could see the 8r8kpoints for everything and all the mobs like the squid or the tank zombie were replaced with in-game assets so there were just spiders divebombing towards me and warping incomprehensibly and the brick roads through the forest would show up? but they were tough to follow and then teamm8 roxy punched a hole in a tank a nd then i woke up
12/30/2019: had a dream i wanted to go out and get some food from iconic 8r8king 8ad loc8ion the dog house, but couldnt drive so i asked for a ride there and said it was alright, bc i had my phone, and if necessary, i would just say "paypal can teleport me home", because they could, and did before. (note: they have never done this. not even in dreams. but i was so convinced of their ability to that i woke up and checked to see if they could)

10/31/2019: had a dream i went to hunt down mike from 8r8kybad bc he was up to something in my dreams and when i finally got him my brain fucking unspooled itself and he became a mr game and watch or perhaps a living shadow not unlike peter pans and i chased his shadow through my house as it rapidly changed from my house to some kind of cave that i had to fish him out of. the bottom was like. maybe 350 feet down and glowing and my method here was to make as many ham sandwiches as possible, just throwing them into this pit with my friend austins help and we did it but on the way back austins phone died and he lost all his progress on his ham sandwich variety counter and he was sad about it

8/27/2019: had a dream i was trying to invite eris from billy and mandy to a holiday party and had to like, call her in from what i fucking GUESS is a spirit phone!!!!!!!! i GUESS and the way you had to do it was light a candle under a christmas ornament and the glass would crack and form her phone number that you had to write down before it broke. the spirit phone had an instant replay button so i scrubbed over the frames of it a lot to try and get it down and then gave up and pulled out the spirit phonebook and flipped to the "gods and movie monsters" area code and called each number sequentially until one of them was godzilla and smashed the phone and i woke up

8/1/2019: had a dream we had to evacu8 the earth-C solar system (see: earth and its many, many moons, since we brought all the sburb planets with us) because of a hostile alien invasion and our ambassadors for peace were turned into zombies by the aliens that were invading. jade and jane set up a huge cool cyclone that people would travel through to get to the safehouse and i was tasked with going to the ambassador ship and being a sci-fi horror video game protagonist. the only other person on the ship who was left alive was waypoint's austin walker and he would drop these mixtapes for me that like. vaguely explained the plot and one of them was just the entirety of clipping's album splendor and misery. to do moves i had a health bar and a green Fluids bar and there were little zombie guys like. barely ankle-high, scurrying around in hazmat suits and carrying around these huge needles that i had to walk into, to get fluids back. i was then woken up
7/31/2019: had a dream my special boy miles morales was a hall monitor at a high school. this high school's been in my dreams a few times. it's always the same. the top floor has both the principal's offices and a huge amphitheater. the principal's office has got a U shape to it, the U shape from a gigantic bookshelf, with a tiny receptionist's desk between the tips of either side of the U. the stairs down to the floor beneath it has no railing on one side. in one dream, these stairs were centered with no rails, in this dream, they've been aligned to the wall but still lack handrails. the first floor has an overhang over a social worker's office that's lined with lockers and theres an alcove that leads into a daycare and theres more lockers there. its a like. pretty common place i could probably map it out by hand at this point. anyways miles helped me get my locker open since it was like. a future locker and the wiring was fucked, and he was clearly trying to hide his powers while using them to open it and doing just an awful job at doing so and when my locker finally opened thirty fucking mad max cars spilled out one after another and we had to race to get my shit in my locker back
7/26/2019: had a dream that criticism changed the media underneath it and that in star wars episode 9 kylo ren was defeated by changing the story to such an extent he walked out of his castle wearing fingerless gloves as shoes because it was warped so much that it was the best ending for his arc

7/18/2019: lots of dreams lately. back when i was like, 8 my grandmas neighbors kids were like. friend-adjacent. i didnt go up to my grandparents that much since they lived like an hour and a half away and suburban country clubs dont have much in the way of appeal for 8 year olds, esp during times when gas was like $7/gal but when i did id hang out with them. like the dinklebergs but with kids. ditklebergs. so in this dream i had to steal a laptop from their house, while people were in it, except now it was an extremely heavily armored house with like, laser traps and alarm systems and shit. and i had to get a laptop out of there. my crew for this was the cast of the first homestuck anim8d movie. which was. a heist movie? like it was jane and roxy doing a fucking heist movie. and they kept recasting roxy between appearances because everyone had the fame and power of playing roxy lalonde go to their head. eventually i found a lull in their like. schedules but then got distracted by a cute girl and spent 5 hours just hanging out with her without ever catching her name and only leaving when she wanted me to don8 to joe biden. eventually i left to drive away into the sunset with this laptop in jane and roxys cool car and the last minute sequel hook was that the car was humungous entertainment's iconic putt putt.
7/16/2019: had a dream we were at war with giant elephants. it was deeply post apocalpyse, with the land being desertified, and we were "at war" in the same way that like, anthills go to war with people that step on them i guess. and the only thing we really had in this war was big gushers-like pods that you put people in pointy hats in that elephants would step on like legos and people would be able to wriggle around inside, conceptually, but in practice they mostly just got squished to death and like. concussed when the pod around them popped. this war was known as the GREAT MISCHMASCHISCHE (pronounced "mish mash") and it had taken out most of humanity. my brother filled up his gushers pod with vape cotton so that when he got stepped on it would all come out at once.
7/15/2019: had a dream that kaycee vanillavial asked me to compare me, vriska, in homestuck to me, vriska in a new trigger property made up entirely for the dream, called "let's be great!!!", which was a flcl-like miniseries set parallel to the homestuck epilogues and taking place entirely within a "coil" which i guess is the gurren lagann term for an altern8 timeline? i think the lore was like. "every turn of the drill in a giga drill breaker expends enough energy to power an entire universe, heres what those universes were", i read on the box that there were many coils like this and the interest of being "fun" was more important than being "right" and in this coil, i, vriska, was a ginger girl who clung to walls and shit except sometimes id turn people into clay and eat their heads. at some point it started raining and never stopped, for years and years and years, and the world flooded. after my mom tried to get me to narc on my brother for smoking weed in the basement, i travelled 300 miles from my home to the library to try and find a book on how to build the ultim8 treasure from legos and playdoh and then once i did a like, game started, and i had to keep people from killing kana from flcl: alternative who was reading the book out loud and charging some kind of spell. at one point dirk strider rode up out of a sewer grate and his parachute pants smelled like shit water, and jafar from aladdin hit me with his snake staff thing so i turned him into clay and stole his arms and then i woke up

7/10/2019: had a dream i was in a community college but instead of doing like, ged classes or whatever, i was competing with the other students to be the new avatar and one of the final exams to see if you could be the new avatar was building a machine out of redstone in minecraft and i was doing so well at it that other students started putting together assassination attempts on me
7/5/2019: had a dream that i got super mario maker 2 and the first level was me driving through a sonic level at max speed as ryuko matoi to help her brother who is uh. still luigi. hes still there. i was helping him fight off a big shark. then i woke up and fell back asleep and the dream, still framed like a mario maker level, was about trying to navigate a social situation in which my racist and violent grandmother owed me a lot of money in such a way where i got the money and did not upset her to the point of violence. most emotionally draining mario maker level ever
6/25/2019: had a dream i partook in the scratch but for this universe, and i survived and remembered but nobody else did so i got to go around my old high school telling my uhhhhhhhh. friends is too nice but acquaintances is too distant? pals. i got to tell my pals how i'd remember them in a dystopic 2019, and that i'm from another universe and the biggest difference in the reset universe is that janelle monae never got into music which was a big enough change in culture to make people less good and more prepared for a game of sburb
6/12/2019: had three separ8 dreams because i slept like horse shit
6/4/2019: had a dream everyones friend twitter user jack 0 lanterns guest starred on the new monster factory. the game was a morrowind remake, where it was like, good? and not bethesda at all? like you were rewarded for building characters that lived in the culture, and the character that he made was an extremely fancy lad who wanted to be the worlds best chef, and this desire manifested as inventing cheezits, specifically, cheezits that were just one really long, floppy cheezit you unrolled and took bites out of. the series was cut short when the character was murdered in cold blood by an aristocrat for getting slop on the floor of their castle, and then the series was cut double short when it was found out that todd howard was leaving game dev to work at the field museum specifically so that he could satisfy his horniness for sue the dinosaur
6/1/2019: had a dream that was like. framed like 2007-era runescape. so imagine 2007scape while i talk about what happened next. i had an encounter with folks from another world who challenged me to fight them in a big castle. i died and respawned in lumbridge like 3 different times, and i went through the training courses and in these training courses they just gave you like. what is end-game material to a free player? so i would go fight these people and lose every time until i gave up and had to start climbing over my own gravestones to get to the fight itself and became a bartender at a boarding school? and one of the drinks that definitely was not something you drink on your own was straight honey + vanilla and it was themed after winnie the pooh and i was like "oh this sounds decent" but then i spilled it and spent 4 and a half dream hours cleaning it up
5/30/2019: had a dream that gwen and a mutual friend of ours from middle school were recording a flarp podcast. one arc had me meeting a dog and it biting me and i took real physical damage and then the next arc was a time travel arc where my character motivation was "okay so we're clearly doing this all again for some reason, what if we did something different" and it was cool as hell even if our mutual friend is kind of the reason i went to use 4chan in the first place and kinda fucked me up for the rest of my life

5/13/2019: had a dream that suddenly became lucid halfway through and instead of like. doing cool things with that lucidity i looked really closely and intently at the trees in my dreams and forced my brain to render trees up close in the dream space and now i feel like. pretty sick. my brain was not particularly good at it, it did not look right at all and i started feeling sick like immediately
