I have kept a dream diary since the middle of 2016 or so, at the behest of one of my best friends. Why do I want to keep a dream diary and why, even so, would I want to make it public? This is for several reasons:

01. The entire “theme” of this blog is a diary. It would be remiss of me to not include some glimpses of private and potentially embarrassing stuff too.

02. Archive, archive, archive. For future historians and such to read. Also, I do believe in reincarnations and past lives, and in a way it’s intriguing to see the dreams and wonder where some of the ideas and events came from. Are there glimpses of a past life trying to reach out through the void?

03. I am fascinated in general by dreams and would like to try to achieve lucid dreaming or even a tulpa (local) someday. I can’t say I’m putting my full effort into this, as I’m not, but this dream diary helps with improving dream memory and seems to be a vague step in that direction.

04. This doesn’t necessarily tie in to the public part, but a dream diary is fascinating because I can see how my dreams shift in accordance with my interests in games or shows and certain life events too. And, somewhat arrogantly, I think it might someday be good research material for future scholars.

So anyway, a lot of people and names are mentioned in the diary entries. I have installed (and populated) an addon that has allowed me to give context and information in the form of hover text for many proper nouns, but I’ve almost certainly missed some. The hover-able words have also automatically been coloured teal though. Like this: Mom. Some entries have also been edited a bit, but they’ve mostly been left fairly raw, so (very) occasionally taboo things like sex and murder get involved, or I or friends do things that they’d never do in real life.

I write down the dreams when I wake up in the morning, and date my entry with that morning’s date. So the date of a listed dream corresponds to the dream/s that I had in the time period between, say, 9pm of the previous day until 9pm of the listed day. Some of the entries will likely not make total sense without first looking through my entire blog to figure out who is who, but that’s kind of the way dream journals work.

Also, some entries contain editor’s notes, which generally look like this. Sometimes I have no idea what the heck I was writing about at the time, especially earlier on (before mid-2020) when my diary entries weren’t as verbose. Some entries have Snippets, which are basically dream bits or scenes that I remember that didn’t fit in with an overall story, but sometimes I don’t differentiate them, especially when there isn’t much of an overall story to begin with from that night. I also give a Highlight award to nights which I think had particularly good dreams, anything I rate an 8/10 or above. There’s a section devoted to them below too.

Finally, please note that I will be adding new entries to this but they will be at the very bottom of this page each time. And yes, the entire diary is on this one HUGE (once I am done) page — this is because I value the ability to press Ctrl-F and search for all occurrences of something in my entire diary. Like typoes.

If necessary, contact me at jesskitten at gmail. Also there’s been several proofreading runs made at it but the document is just so long. Pointing out typos that I missed are always appreciated. That being said, the writing evolves and becomes more verbose as the diary goes on, some of the early diary entries have huge logic jumps and make little to no sense to me anymore.

Common Themes

I wanted to devote a section of this to common themes that I know appear in my dreams from time to time. Or don’t appear.


A fair number of dreams involve trips to a bathroom for me. Mostly as a girl these days, though it was as a guy early on too. Sometimes it still varies. Sometimes I go into the wrong one. The bathrooms vary in size and purpose — sometimes it is a cramped thing with a couple cubicles, and I feel some trepidation and mild danger but also a thrill at entering the dimly lit one on the far end. Sometimes it’s a large bathroom with many cubicles, many of which are occupied or leaking/broken. Sometimes it’s a changing room + bathroom, and for these, even if not mentioned, it tends to come with a hope that I can find discarded female clothing there that I can take and wear. Sometimes it’s just a musky locker room. Sometimes the male and female bathrooms are linked. It’s interesting, and I’m certain it reflects my real life transition to a certain extent too, since being able to switch which one I use was a major symbol and milestone for me.

Buses and Trains

These feature a fair amount, especially trains. The general feeling I get when I encounter trains in a dream is that they’re similar to the Singapore train system, and they’re quick and convenient but due to transfers, it can still take 45 minutes to an hour and a half to get to my desired location. The train stations in my dream are often Singapore ones as well, but there are overseas stations too, in Japan, London, Russia, and more, as well as fictional stations.

I have many fond memories around train stations from when I was younger in real life, and you’ll see a lot of varied events that happen around train stations in my diary. I also just like trains quite a lot in general. Buses tend to be more generic, but I’ve spent a lot of time on buses and trains in my life so it sort of makes sense that both heavily feature in my dreams too, I suppose!

I also want to note here that I occasionally get a dream where I specifically drive a car or motorcycle, and I always feel nervous in that but it usually goes quite well. It’s weird though, because I have never driven a vehicle in real life, and so shouldn’t have these experiences and feelings to draw from.


I don’t know why this one is such a big symbol for me, but it is, or used to be, especially in the context of either HDB flats or hotels. There’s often a sense of danger emanating from them in my dreams too, even though I usually come to no harm in the end. See my very first Aug 2016 dream for an example of said danger. Sometimes these travel in impossible angles too, like elevators that travel vertical, then horizontal along a tube, then vertical again. I crushed my little toes in a closing elevator door when I was really young, and the nails are still broken to this day, but I don’t think that’s where the sense of danger comes from. Just a general sense of unease and worry that the elevator is taking me to high places, or that it will break down. But it seldom actually breaks down in the end.


I’m a huge PC gamer, and even during the time periods in my life where I haven’t been playing much, games of various stripes, both real as well as imagined, constantly and endlessly infuse my dreams.


I think a lot of people have these anxiety-fueled dreams about overdue homework and tests, and I occasionally do too, which I guess reflects how wretched school systems can be. But actually, bad school scenes thankfully do not appear super often for me, I tend to get many good (or odd) school scenes instead. For me, one of my life’s biggest regrets is that I went through school as a male instead of a female, and did not have the opportunity to do so as the latter while growing up. One of the main reasons that I am going back to school now is to try to do what I can to fight back against this regret, actually. And for that reason, I think, schools play a fairly prominent role in my dreams too.

I also meet a lot of people from my Grade 7-8 class in my dreams, eternally enshrined as how they looked 20 years ago, because I had to leave my good friends there and get torn away to move to a new school in a new country, which I didn’t care for and still partially resent my parents for. My dreams definitely still reflect my yearning for a return to those days sometimes. Astute readers will also note that I dream about my secondary school a fair amount, and primary school now and then, but I nearly never dream about my high school or University life and the people from it. I also like the people at my University workplace, and dream about them a whole lot, especially my boss, Ronnie.


When I was younger, I used to look for the Fabled Lands series of gamebooks in bookshops, and the Legend of the Five Rings collectible card game in hobby shops that I visited. They were somewhat rare, especially the former, but I would still find them now and then. I also would spend extra pocket change on booster packs for L5R in a mall shop after school sometimes. This is reflected in some dreams, where I will sometimes try to seek out bookshops or card/hobby shops or libraries and look for these two items, even though I have long since stopped doing this in real life.

It became a sort of holy grail that I would always look for because I had thought for the longest time that books 5-6 did not actually exist too, especially in a pre-/early Internet age, and my dreams sometimes reflect this.

Another notable shop that features a lot in my dreams is Hoho’s, a Chinese food stall at HUB Mall that I passed by often and sometimes ate at for something like 15-20 years. I no longer patronize it.


Apparently people tend to have dreams where they are running away from things but are moving really slowly and getting nowhere and the thing they’re running away from eventually catches up to them and eats them or something. I actually nearly never get these sorts of dreams, nor dreams where I die, except occasionally within the context of a game. I suppose that’s a good thing! I sometimes do get hurt, but not often either.

There are some dreams involving sex or slavery or lurid stuff like that that I will probably include, but there are also several that involve murders, sometimes committed by me or sometimes by others. Those depend on my mood, there have been a very small number of dreams where I either murdered a number of people or watched a number of them die, and thus refused to write them down in detail when I woke up. Sometimes I leave those in though. It often depends on how awful I feel that morning. But by and large, especially after 2020 or so, these are very, very rare.

Other themes

There are definitely several other smaller motifs that play into my dreams, sometimes minor ones that appear for a couple weeks and then no more, or maybe once or twice a year, sometimes they’re linked to real life events (or games, shows, etc) happening at that time on the other side of the dream veil, and sometimes they’re just randomly reoccurring connections. These are left as an exercise for the reader to find!


This is a section to highlight dream entries that are particularly noteworthy to me, either because I felt they were memorable, vivid, long, or otherwise interesting. This section acts as a catalogue of the entries that I wish to highlight.

May 18 1999
  • Dream. Fire. Magical god fire. Fire is burning all around house but cannot enter. Fire symbolizes something else. Pain. Anger. Injustice. Goddess ‘helping’ Baron of house and caused the fire to start in the first place. But goddess (adult) treats this as a game or test of some sort. Someone is pleading with me, telling me about burning the house away slowly instead of straight down, and how it is like torturing instead of killing straight off. But I disagree, I think it’s like giving people a chance to rescue you.
  • So I go in. I DDoor in. Also, the fire is dull red, the goddess isn’t evil, she’s neutral & helping us too. But the baron & woman outside don’t know that, I find out (“realise”) later. Also, fire is only at one side of the house, other side is cool and has 2 large doors leading onto a field of some sort. Also, sky is dark — night. Also, Baron came to window. We could see through from where we were & drew the curtains, but he didn’t know we were there. I DDoored there and Baron was gone already.
  • I’m not sure what exactly happened here then, but I remember running a lot, sluggishly, left side of body not working very well while running, but guards — well dressed soldiers/captains — couldn’t catch me. Library I ran into had many guards inside, sleeping or whatever, but I just ran out through another nearby door. I was running down a corridor, when I saw *her* going in the opposite direction. We went into a stairway & she either gave me or told me something, and we left in opposite directions.
  • I ran and ran and guards were getting closer and I ran into (well, not into) a glass door leading out. The Baron was shocked when I escaped through it because he expected it to be locked, but I had used a Lockpick spell on it from a few feet away. And once I stepped out, I LB’d back to my citadel.
  • Somewhere in there I had fulfilled my objective, I did something so *she* & her friends? could escape and they did somewhere else.
  • Editor: This was a more or less verbatim copy of what I wrote down on a sheet of paper on or shortly after May 17 1999. DDoor is Dimension Door, a spell that allows you to teleport to a location that you can see, and LB is Lloyd’s Beacon, a spell that allows you to teleport to a “saved” location that you had previously bound to. Both are spells from the Might and Magic franchise of games, and I use both as verbs here.
Undated dream snippets and recurring worlds

There are some recurring dream worlds/cities that I vividly remember returning to more than once, though there isn’t one that I constantly visit or anything like that. It’s really interesting that even within a dream I can sometimes recognize that I’ve been to this place before though, even if details are different now and then.

  • I was flying a plane between an airport located on the northwest side of the city, to another airport to the north of it. One of the two airports was Vancouver Airport, but I’m not sure which one. It was a 6 hour flight or so and I was in the cockpit of the military-style jet the entire time, a bit afraid but also exhiliarated. I saw the sun rise while in the cockpit.
  • I remember being in Vancouver Airport with some girl friends and there being extremely long escalators that crisscrossed each other (some going top left to bottom right, top right to bottom left, etc, and some going to different levels even if moving in the same direction). Different escalators led to different lobbies in the airport which in turn led to planes departing for different cities.
  • I took a flight as a passenger into Russia, possibly with my Dad, and then a series of train trips from a southerly “safe” train station with friendly Russians into northern tunnels and train stations which were more dangerous as they were somehow controlled by evil Russian forces. But I had to reach and do something at one of the stations in there, something to do with finding a lost toddler, perhaps.
  • One of my earlier recurring dream worlds involved a large, smouldering volcano in the middle of the city, and a public washroom with a row of cubicles located on the edge of some void space on the very eastern end of the city. Using the very end toilet cubicles in that washroom was a little bit “dangerous” but I liked that particular sense of danger. I also remember taking a bus around the city and seeing the volcano from the southern side.
  • Another recurring dream location is an outdoor large hall that usually has some sort of movie awards ceremony going on within it, with lots of glitzy, well-dressed people. This location is surrounded by high walls, and a winding road to the south, and in this scene, I am usually trying to either break in or break out over the walls like some sort of cat thief. (See: Sep 17 2016)
  • Another city had lots of square grid streets and a mall and airport on the northwest side. I’ve taken a bus to the mall a couple times, and most of the dreams that involve a “Vancouver Airport” (including the snippets above) take place in this city with that airport. There’s often a bus terminal in the southern middle part of the city that curves south and west from a nearby traffic junction. (See: the first and second undated snippets above, and Sep 20 2017)
  • Another city has an entrance on the south and two parallel streets across bridges that lead north to a downtown area, with Chinese food shops among other things.
  • Yet another city has a large, forested hill in the middle of it that I sometimes have to travel across, around, or through (using tunnels). There are often either waypoints on the hill that I can teleport or navigate to, and a school or University on the southern or western side.
  • Another dream area that has featured in a couple dreams involved a desert zone with several quick travel points and a railway that went around the outside of one quarter or so of the desert. The area near the railway was a lower levelled area. I had to venture into this area to retrieve something, either from an enemy truck or squad. Other areas in this game world involved a Venice-like canal area with two-storey buildings, including an interior building area that I could enter from the corner of the subzone, as well as another part that had two different flights of stairs from different adjacent zones that led down into a shared underground cavern area, which itself led down further into a dungeon with several levels.
  • Yet another area has one very tall hotel, or perhaps two very tall hotels next to each other, usually with me in a room somewhere around the 50th floor or so, and a couple elevators that served the entire building. There were usually stairs as well, and the dream normally involves traversing between several levels of the hotel, or occasionally venturing outside altogether. Because it was so high, being in the hotel or the elevator usually gave me a butterflies in the tummy sort of sensation. Sometimes I also have a dream hotel where the elevator goes vertically down some ways and then travels horizontally, and I’m not sure if these two hotels are melded or separate hotels.
  • I also have experienced many dreams around an “Yishun” area, which was my first childhood home in Singapore that I really remember. These dreams sometimes have my Edmonton 4012 house transplanted there as a starting point, or sometimes it’s my Yishun 799 HDB block and involves travelling around in the void deck below the apartment or from Yishun 799 to the Yishun 723 one on foot through market areas. There’s sometimes a prominent traffic light between the market area and the area I need to get to, and a bus that loops the area every 15 minutes or so that I’ve taken a couple times. Other times, I somehow have a motorcycle or car license and need to drive from Yishun, south through the dream Singapore, toward some unknown destination.

  • I took a tilted elevator (because one elevator cable was broken) with Mom and someone else, up a HDB flat. When we reached the top, we tried calling down to Dad and Jon not to follow and to use the stairs instead. There were loud noises, so the cellphone didn’t work and Mom had to yell louder.
  • They heard though, and they came up the stairs instead. Then Dad jumped back down a ladder next to the elevator to the floor below ours anyway to go do some gardening.
  • I went back toward my apartment just before waking up. There were racist neighbours, and the apartments were very similar to HDB flats that I remembered. Mine was in the corner of the middle open walkway.
Aug 26 2016
  • There was some sort of a draft (like a sports team draft) going on, that was being used to divide people (mostly students) between two long dinner banquet tables. Jon and me were on one side, and Mom was drafted to sit between us. She helped Jon by cutting the meatballs on his plate.
  • I updated my resume from a two-paragraph thing. into a full-length document.
  • I was job shadowing some auditors prior to this, we were auditing bathroom quotas, and a road or area or something that the city said would take 10 or 100 million to build, but had only spent 5 million on it, and that was excellent. Bathroom quotas here refers to a requirement as to how many bathrooms there needed to be in a certain area/building.
  • Snippet: Other random scattered fragments: A one on one Marvel Puzzle Quest-style battle, bookstores that restock weekly, tables with books spread out on it, and a scene where I knocked someone out and stole 4 items in a very Deus Ex-y way — one was a space poster partially folded or rolled up like a Chinese calligraphy scroll, and three books/board games.
Aug 27 2016
  • I was playing a low-level DnD game. I was a wizard-type character. Steffy or Seaturtl was there too. Matt Mercer was our DM! We had recently wrapped up a previous game, something involving a long, concrete path extending across the air high up in the sky, as well as a house of some kind.
  • As Matt Mercer was preparing for the next dungeon, which was tied to the “next semester” of school somehow, several people levelled via learning languages.
  • There was a rat character that was scurrying around the kitchen of the house. One of our moms was better equipped to deal with handling the rat because she had learnt a couple words to speak with it, and similarly, there was a golem that had a better relationship with someone else in the same house because they had learnt a few words and so were able to communicate with each other.
  • Matt Mercer showed us a poster with three bosses on it, and the current (2nd) boss that we were on briefly flashed 2xp (double xp) before the flash faded. He also encouraged us to keep our own journals/recording books as he wouldn’t be using one of ours to help us take notes this time.
  • On the second quest, we had the golem come along, and we were trying to decide whether it was neutral or good. The rat had also turned into a kobold character and had come along with us, and there were also two others in our party. The golem was left over from the previous party and probably belonged to someone else, but the two of them couldn’t make it. (I’m not sure who “the two of them” in my notes are, but I think it had to do with the owner of the golem and/or the person who could communicate with it.)
  • We disembarked from a boat into shallow water inside a room. The kobold outright failed his disembark roll, and tripped over the edge of the boat, falling flat and managing to miss the entire first battle.
  • This first battle consisted of balls of rats lurking nearby. They moved in. I threw lots of Finger of Fire spells at them, and even trapped two rat-balls in a corner and toyed with them a bit. We were soon all out of spells and cooldowns but the rats were dead… but what about the rest of the dungeon?
  • Later on, in a separate segment of the dream, I was in a half-city, half-school/company with several other people, that may have been part of the same world that the earlier DnD games were featured in. Bunny was near me, but she got struck by Medievia lightning and died. Upon respawning, she teleported to me and went looking for her corpse in order to retrieve her gear. I summoned a Medievia dragon and flew around the area to help her find her corpse/gear, but she was a bit aloof and wasn’t really answering questions I was trying to ask her to help with the search.
  • We eventually found her corpse and she retrieved her gear. We saw several adventurers nearby but they themselves didn’t have much gear either. We suspected they were doing a nearby dungeon and had just come out of it though, since the first two tiers of that dungeon didn’t need much in the way of gear to do anyway.
  • We were also “working” for the school/company at that time, where Bunny was a trainee and her desk was near the middle of a room; I was some sort of IT support and my desk was nearer the back. But my desk wasn’t actually there at the moment, it was appropriated by a basketball team needing the table for a demonstration of something or other to the rest of the room. I had a clipboard to write on instead of the table.
  • There were two basketball teams present, one of them was from Pittsburgh and was staying at a hotel belonging to Michael Handzus.
  • There was a hotel behind us to the left and one up front to the left somewhere near the waterfront in the weird city that we were located in.
  • To the right of the tables in the room, behind a glass wall, were huge jars with red caps containing Chinese snacks and other things — there was a jar of tissue, a jar of large prawn crackers, one of some sort of dumplings, and others still.
  • There were also some sort of races being held every 8 hours. I wanted to join, which could be done through a TV console of some sort, but missed the signup for the current race, as I didn’t know the text command to join it. The command to join it was something similar to “prep ” or “pref “, followed by another word or number, but that was all I could remember.
  • There were 6 TV channels with different contests/sporting events, but only Channel 2 featured whatever race I was trying to join. That race had 8-9 spots in total. Channel 3 had a team sled race, with two teams of two signed up. Channels 4-6 were for different languages (German, etc) and had 2-3 people registered in each one. They were sparring or fighting each other in those contests. Channel 1 was an English version of that, but was empty.
Aug 28 2016
  • I was playing a (possibly Steam) game with a friend, or possibly by myself, using a deck of 52 cards. One of the games was Unverse (Universe?). “Ingame”, we were sort of inside someone else’s unfurnished keep and/or house and were attacking up the stairs as well as defending down the stairs, Valve was sponsoring an event using those cards “at work/school” soon and I was going to put together or watch out for an extra copy of the prize package for someone (Eileen?) I suspected wouldn’t be able to afford them.
  • At the same time as the attacking up/down the stairs, which seemed to be totally different but related games (or parts of the game), we were also sitting at a table out of game and playing cards, the TV was on and something similar to Whose Line Is It Anyway was playing on it. Turned it off at 8pm but something/possibly Dad turned it back on without me realising it at first (even without watching it), so I had to turn it off again at 9pm after Drew, the host, did some weird catchphrase to end the show.
Aug 29 2016
  • Potted plants, growing seeds, and I battled a demon that was inspired from Ifrit but looked like the Joker from Batman, in a room with some others. Led by a teacher or authority figure, possibly Ronnie. Had a work ticket where a VIP wanted their account restored because they ordered some amazon.ca things to the email address before realising it did not exist anymore. It felt like the first day of school, with deciding between pros and cons of Chinese classes on Tuesdays (2h block per week) or Tues/Thurs (1h blocks twice per week).
Aug 30 2016
  • There were two “game settings” screens or sets of knobs with a lot of crazy settings like the amount of sand or different directions of blown sand used in the game. I was hanging out with Melody a lot but would often let her enter the elevator with Fae and the rest of the guild, then let it close so only Melody got to go along with them, because it was tight on room and they never really made room for me, but I wanted to make sure Melody got in. The guild got reprimanded by Melody for not watching out/making room for me. Thus she got to run instances/raids with them while I dithered about back on the ground level of the desert place.
  • The second time this happened, I got resentful because it was slowly turning from nightfall back to day (4/5am), and Melody didn’t drop group to reinvite me to run something, even though we had some sort of plans laid out beforehand. I tersely inquired in guild, then got an invite from Melody who was grouped with just Fae. They both seemed super cheery but there was no indication if they’d been talking over voice or text chat or just idling. I then became really perky and started chatting Fae up in group text chat.
Aug 31 2016
  • A guy was mourning the loss of someone named Amy, but had to leave because a girl who had the same name was hitting on him. Neither were people that I know in real life. She ends up either holding people hostage or creating a military conflict situation and there’s a rescue team sent to rescue/defeat them. But in the end when they meet again by a bench or picnic table near a convenience store, the guy relents, saying “we are the best two people in the world”, leaves her there for a moment, climbs up to the roof of the store and tosses three bags of flour at her as a prank to get her slightly annoyed, then goes back down and hugs her from behind as they laugh.
  • This was a multi-day stalking, I or someone was off from the rescue/military team or something a day ago. Also there was a pilot in the second to last mission before the love story blossomed, where we had to “attack” a point where she was at, and he was berating the leaders of the squad with a “I’d like to remind everyone that it’s easy to forget sometimes that this is a real situation and not a training session. We already lost one pilot today (in an earlier mission), let’s not lose more.” A character that I was watching but apparently was actually me was almost shot there as she had just learnt a 4 digit password (something similar to but not 7789) and I had to hide behind a jutting out wall next to a door I had already crossed because she was going to shoot me with the password somehow.
  • Before this there was a scene where I controlled a chaotic army blob on an overland sort of map, with really low visibility, and ran the army blob into low-resolution enemy armies/battalions on the map to knock their pieces over and crush them. There were two “generals” I had to find, and I guess that attack point was the second one. The first one and all the misc armies were just crushed by my military blob.
  • At the start of the day in the military unit, which also had shades of school or work, I or someone was looking at things left behind by another character (Jonathan from Dunman?) on a different day, including a slim coloured glass drink bottle that I think we saved, and a pen that was drained of all liquid that I threw into a really narrow bin. The day before also had Kimberly a little annoyed at an authority figure for having had/been tricked to do some sort of (Google-related?) work in the past when it could have been left for that day.

  • I was being semi-bullied by two friendly people, one a fat guy and the other a thin one, people I know from work or gaming, but forget who. I think Rainbaw was one of them, or involved with them. They took my pink bolster and tossed it right out the window to the ground below, while we were all in a room watching or doing something. That only happened once, the rest of the time I closely guarded my bolster and papers. We were still friends though and were doing things for points of some sort together with many other people in the room. Part of the dream involved climbing onto the roof of that building to find orbs that had been dropped from above. The fat guy got dinged points or downvoted or something for a pun involving the singer Pink and my ArcheAge guild PiNK while on the roof. While we were out at some point a cleaning company came by and replaced all the pillows and bolsters too. Their name was something close to IBM.
  • There was an overarching plot where we were drawing up a set of rules or paperwork together with another group regarding some issue or other, in response to an event that had happened. At some point someone suspicious on the other side asked us if we had only just created part of the documentation, but we managed to prove (with Athera‘s help, showing a quote from a few weeks ago where she was trying to get Rainbaw to find time to play/do something but he could not because he was helping with the document) that we were working on it from a long time ago. There was also a scene that happened a couple times where we had to take a package of papers with a number and queue up with many others to get into a restricted area (possibly the class area).

  • I became 2nd in charge of the work team and traded spaces with Ronnie to get a quiet office where the wall behind the chair and desk was entirely made of glass with some sort of nice view. The office was very quiet, and people filtered by now and then to congratulate me and ask if I was the 2nd in command now, but all in all I was really glad of the privacy. Simon featured in my dream, he had just returned to work but was too caught up in something and missed his team meeting (twice) and was panicking because he thought he was in deep trouble. I encouraged him to just pretend to be sick and go home since it was still the start of the day. His supervisors then contacted me/us and left a friendly message/picture/video inviting him to the meeting.
  • The dream also involved a strange subway system that has featured in other dreams before. The first time I took it with someone we ended up on the wrong train and had to disembark after a stop, but I had to leave my bag of belongings on the train to do so. I was a bit annoyed by that but not too much so as I knew that those were bags of returning (or something) and would find their way or be mailed back to my house in a day or two. I think there was then a 2nd subway trip that worked out better.
  • After arriving just outside the subway, but before reaching the office, there were lots of police either hunting for me or someone else. I would manage to sneak by them successfully, but not before doing some science, which basically amounted to saving the game, and then aggroing the blob of police that moved slower than I did, kiting them around and watching them slowly drop like flies to some sort of ranged attacks that I had.
  • I also visited a bookstore in this one dream maze area, and found some gamebooks there on the shelf after some searching – some sort of anime gamebook, books 3, 4, and 9 of Lone Wolf, a Tunnels and Trolls one with the cover gone and the last few pages missing, etc. I had to conceal the books, run back to my house/office, look up my pink notebook to see if I owned them, then run back to the store to get them. This was done via a narrow tunnel outside the store, and then up a flight of stairs, and someone else that was nearby was complaining what a long run it was. The alternative route was down below though, and was twice as long and led through a really long and tiny tunnel you may have had to crouch to go through.
Sep 03 2016
  • Someone from Discord named Bunny or Doll sent me messages asking me not to believe what someone else (with a 6-letter name, Varcus or something) was going to say to me, and began explaining what happened. She had just finished a roleplay session with someone else (who muttered a thank you to her) by flying them around in the form of a giant bird of some sort, making them bumpily ride around while straddled/sitting on a studded diamond, before going over to general chat. There the conversation shifted over to me and whether I liked certain things or not, and it turned a big argument when they were trying to decide if I like Big Daddies/Small Chains as it wasn’t specifically stated in my info and blog. Some people thought it was okay to talk about someone else like that, whereas others disagreed, and someone named <something>Soze in particular argued that it was disrespectful to me. Things finally calmed down when someone named Drifter came into the room and said that things like that would result in a future ban.
  • Before this, details are vague but I remember being involved in some sort of a fantasy war scene. It was partly ideological, the other side were a bunch of terrorists of some sort with a slightly oppressive ideology and who wanted to take over. I remember travelling between two play locations, from the mines (located in a little mountain pass) to another place nearby, with a little FFXIV-style minion who featured no further in my dreams, and there was a huge explosion in the mines. The aftershock/fallout carried all the way out to me and scalded my shoes. A horde invaded from the south past the mines soon after, heading north toward the leader, and were met around where I was with a fight as I was communicating remotely with some friends elsewhere telling them incredulously about the explosion and what happened.
  • The leader was at a table in an inn owned by Barliman Butterbur, between the two locations. Wasn’t specifically mentioned to be the Prancing Pony though. He was at a table with an aide on the 2nd floor, and when we eventually reached there, the aide was grinning and we knew somehow he was the betrayer of the rather oblivious leader. They could see the mines out of the window next to their table. We pulled him away to the floor and murderized him (and the leader still wasn’t very perturbed). One of my friends then complained bitterly to Barliman about how the inn was so traditional and how he refused to upgrade to magical versions of games or sports so people could safely play them. Even before the explosion, there was a bunch of other fighting, and a lot of intrigue, trying to find out who was a spy/traitor and who wasn’t, but I don’t remember much detail about that.
Sep 05 2016
  • From some carnival scene, the story turned into a slavery ring that I was investigating. I met one of the victims-to-be in the washroom, then ended up as one myself as a volunteer, and was in a cell where I had to bang on the metal door with a latch to get attention from someone named Mistress. She had a harem of sorts. I was allowed to leave on a bicycle to attend a wedding, but contacted someone with tools of some sort to try to get them to remove some collar device. The streets were gridded, and I started on a north-south street, trying to find him. First I went north before he said that he was at the center of the neighbourhood (south) of me, and I went back that way. I could not stop cycling because somehow I knew that would make Mistress suspicious. It turned out that he was at the wedding area too, an open-air area with a lot of people, but I arrived early and the current wedding was different from the one I was going to attend.
  • I don’t remember anything about my first dream but I seem to recall some sort of ear/hearing test was part of it.
Sep 06 2016
  • There was some sort of war – two armies, mine and other side, representing Allies vs Axis more or less I guess. Deaths did not leave corpses. Our side also had catapults, the enemy had some sort of small metallic machines. In the final fight scene, we were fighting over control of a building akin to a shopping center, they were attacking us, I had stayed behind with some others to defend/guard it while most of the army was deployed to the next location. It was a small force but they had managed to get into a pharmacy area or something, with an open counter front facing the rest of the mall and a small door on the right with a striped line across the floor demarcating the threshold of the place. The commander in charge sent some troops back, including four catapults, along with a bunch of enemy troops.
  • They attacked just before nightfall, and three or four of them seemed intent on holding that pharmacy area, so I didn’t really attack them at first. They turned a big life-sized teddy bear to face me, and I waved at it, before grabbing two or three of my teddy bears from my guard post and making them wave back at them, much to the amusement of those inside the area. Nightfall hit once we eliminated the rest of the troops, we made sure the rest of the mall area was secure, while there became a truce between us and the 3-4 remaining enemies. All our catapults were destroyed but same for their machines.
  • One of them was sitting on a chair right by the striped line, holding a smoke bomb from Deus Ex: Mankind Divided in her hands. Besides that, none of the others were even holding weapons. I walked up to the area to make friends, telling my army not to shoot. Another of the three enemies in the pharmacy area then pulled out a laptop and began furiously typing away on it. She said to me and a nameless friend NPC of mine, something like, “Now to find out the real reason for the war. We’ve all been lied to for ages, by the British, even in classrooms (and when we take tests). But why? Have you never thought about it?” I never found out the conclusion but I had a premonition that it had to do with the creation and distribution of dollar bills.
Sep 07 2016
  • I was in some sort of charity hospital, and I was there to see a doctor. My boss was a random NPC in a random queue that I passed on the way in. I left my doctor waiting outside a large square room (on the floor plan it was totally surrounded by corridors) and went in to use the washroom there. The room turned out to be split into 3 parts, the NW side had the male/female toilets (I used the female one), with one cubicle for each, and on the map were marked with the blue male/pink female toilet signs across from one another. There was a little hole in the wall you could see out of, while using the toilet stalls, but there was something that was blocking people outside from seeing in at you. However, it was a convenient escape point after using it.
  • On the southwest side of the room was a doctor/nurse who was also sort of a toilet administrator, but who mostly dealt with patients and monitoring their ulcers. She was complimenting someone nearby that his ulcer was nearly gone, and also telling someone else who asked that a doctor (I think the same one that was waiting for me outside) needed to be ganged up on for hugs at the end of the day because he was hiding some sort of exhausting ulcer. On the right side of the room there was another doctor or lab area, not much detail as the dream did not really go there.
Sep 08 2016
  • I was in some sort of world with a lot of minigames/quests, and a real world/ethereal world. The ethereal world was similar to the paths in The Secret World, and one of the “games” (level 1 had six different games, each of which unlocked a level 2 version) was to traverse the ethereal path using a map that was only made out of gridded lines and breaks in the lines that represented breaks in the path that you shouldnt take. Another was going through 6 portals one after another, each portal dumping you out somewhere far away, Grog from Critical Role was trying that one out and was annoyed by it. One of the portals he needed help with was in an inn in the Misty Mountains. Another minigame was farming points off of killing some sort of enemy in a corner of the map using only Lightning spells like weak and strong Lightning Bolt. I did that for a little bit, then gave up and boarded a bus which ran a few them over and the lady on the bus gave us a physical stack of points. I don’t think it was enough points though. Really low spawn rate.
  • There was a guild that I was not in, who had completed some of the quests but missing tier 2 or 3 of one of the six tracks. I was trying to help them with that. There was a central gathering room where to gain admittance, you had to take off your top/shirt and give it to an inspector to search. If you were mouthy she made you take off your belt, too. I was behind a pretty girl and her middle-aged father, one of the two/three times that I went through it. The inspector also had a pile of laundry on the table she was going through. I borrowed a jar of tuna from one of the other tables in the hall with a promise to return it soon, but never did because I had to go on a quest soon after. There was also a jelly on a table in a lecture hall that we joked had been there for 3 years. And a cryptic crossword puzzle style clue where the answer seemed to be something to do with a United Nations bomb treaty, but wouldn’t fit in the provided squares.
  • There was some sort of overarching plot about being a bunch of survivors stuck in a corner of the world and forbidden for some reason to leave it. The sun was dim there because it was consistently blocked by some mountains or mist or something. When the current king abdicated the throne to his heir though, the heir and a couple of us finally stepped out of the zone (to the amusement of the king) and stood at the end of the path that led to our corner of the world, where the sun shone down brightly upon us and the colours were very vivid and crisp. Everyone was very happy about that.

  • Acid trap.
  • Editor: Yes, that’s all this dream entry says.
Sep 10 2016

Dream 1

  • There was some sort of quest that the party I was in was doing, and the reward was that we got to roll up some loot from a magical book. We were not the only other guild, there was at least another who was very showoffish around the same reward procedure, where they would broadcast it to the TV cameras and try to be glamourous about it at all. In the meantime I may have had the server’s only First Age weapon but didn’t publicize that.
  • In the ending scene of my dream, we were waiting for the book to be flown in because this was particularly special for some reason or other. Not entirely sure what the quests were, but while we were waiting, someone in my party attacked some a named monster that was located within a bunch of other nearby monsters and I ran in to help even though it was a lower level monster, because he was rare and I needed it to complete the quest (I had credit for 5/6 monsters killed for the quest from previously, possibly from a long ago dream).
  • We had a Hildibrand-style buffoon in our party and for some reason the book arrived with him, he was really excited as he brought the book to us as he had already rolled up his treasure. We were curious why he had such a wide grin on his face, as he covered a part of the book passage with one hand to obscure what he got. We thought it was something along the lines of a new powerful legendary weapon, or some treasure, but when we gathered around and he unobscured the book, it just said “Stash Smell”. That was his gift and he loved it. We were super annoyed with him and one of the other members told him that he should try to find employment with a sultan or something and get to a high rank before he deployed that as part of his get rich scheme or he’d just end up in jail.
  • Either part of the main quest or the rewards themselves involved boxes being unloaded from an airplane, another group (possibly the showoff-ish one) had already been to the airport earlier on in the day to get their boxes. I had to poke our group to do so as we were being rather nonchalant about it, but it may have been because we were trying to avoid the crowd too. Some of the Critical Role players were involved, but I forget who and if they were in my party or the other one.

Dream 2

  • While waiting for laundry to be delivered in a room with other people, I was looking at a document from work, a proficiency spreadsheet, and Gregeor had overwritten my column entirely at some point in the past. I only discovered this by looking back at the document revision history, but Greg was in the toilet so I couldn’t yell at him. I restored my column as well as another column that got deleted, then had to add info in for six more rows that had been added after I had made my column. One of the rows was IrfanView, a real image software, and the other five were non-real tech concepts that I don’t remember the name of. I had permission to leave early somehow, but couldn’t use it because I had to wait for the laundry.
Sep 11 2016
  • I was waiting for some sort of grades. Also it was Max Caulfield‘s birthday.
Sep 13 2016
  • I was in a shop district that was half abandoned. There was a group of of 9-10 people near/outside the bookshop that were hanging out in the open that I couldn’t approach, but forgot why. Next to a food court out in the open. It felt like there was some kind of time limit going on, and I had to spend $20 for some reason or other, so I went to a general goods store and bought something for $9 or so, then crossed to the nearby bookshop. Found 4 gamebooks in a series there (I think it was Steve Jackson‘s Sorcery! series) for $4-5 each, as well as a thin $1 book that I wanted (similar to Forgotten Realms‘ Double Diamond Triangle series), so I told the shop owner to wait while I went back to the first store and returned the item I bought. They were agreeable to that.
  • There was a “tent building” nearby and inside that building I found a credit card that someone had left behind. The scene melded to become my work office once I picked it up, and I showed it to some of the other people there – Ronnie and Johannes. Looking the number up in some database, it belonged to someone with 5 first names (something like Jose Maria ??? ??? ???) and 7 last names. We laughed over the name for a bit. Sandy stopped by (without knowing about it) and mentioned that he lost his credit card, but we knew it wasn’t his.
Sep 14 2016
  • There was some kind of progress bar at the bottom of my view “screen” that I had to fill to go places.
  • I was in a workplace meeting, and there was a blackboard with some writing on it that reflected a Google document. Someone (Michael?) was making a presentation, and referred to Gordie who came up and talked about/edited some stuff, including how we needed to laugh more at his jokes so he could make jokes like “you are getting one of these printers, HP, Lexmark, Epson, etc.. and you get to choose which one!” and not have everyone be super confused. Everyone was super confused anyway. I told my boss that Gordie needed to work on his approachability and this was a prime example of it. He then sat down again, the original presenter came up again and joked that if anyone respected him enough they’d help him revert the Google doc to restore the last two pages that Gordie had overridden, as he had already closed the doc. I tried to do it but it ended up all in Chinese characters, and turning the language back gave lots of sentences with broken English.
  • Birds were trapped on a 13 square high ledge, some girls formed a stack, climbed up and rescued them, then rearranged them into nice figurines spread out on the shelves before coming down again. We commented to each other on how pretty it was and how nice that they were older female figurines for once. There was also a desk at the bottom and I arranged two horse figurines on them.
  • I then had to get ready for school, and snubbed Dad‘s offer of a ride to take the bus instead. On the second day, I was busy retrieving four figurines and was tying them to my school handbag and was on the verge of being late due to that. Tigey and I may have rescued those figurines from a garden on the other side of the balcony door next to where Gordie had been making his presentation on the blackboard. There was a layer of snow outside. One of the figurines turned into a large folded irregular-human-shaped mat thing that could be put down on the road in traffic, and it would unfold and open out into a large, flat thing 20 units in either direction, across traffic and the pavements. There was some sort of war that had happened before or would shortly happen again and I was wondering if the enemy soldiers would ever even pass by this street and pick it up.
  • Earlier, there was a shop with a sign just outside the shop pointing to it. For some reason we had to appropriate the space in front of the shop for something, so we ended up using the counter in front of the shop and also had to rearrange the signs so that the sign pointing to the shop behind us was hidden unless you were coming from a specific direction. I felt bad about that and tried to fix it. Across from us was also another temporary shop space, you would move into there and set up shop if you had been stolen from, and the security guard (some college kid that also was probably named Michae‎l or something) would come to you and get the details of the robbery for you. Some middle-aged lady moved into there with her shop while we were there, and when the guard came by for his first shift in two days we pointed her out to him.
Sep 15 2016
  • This involved the reenactment of a drug deal by my work colleagues as part of a play, and it felt like it was not the first time this play had happened recently. We were police/superheroes patrolling the streets. I had x-ray vision and some sort of invincibility, and noted someone going by with a gun, heading toward a bus stop where a couple other people were or would show up soon after. We ogled at one of them, he had 6 phones tucked away on pockets around his body, and had two bodyguards. He was obviously the leader.
  • The scene melded slightly, we were now in a room and still watching them, but as an audience, as someone else walked up and negotiated the drug deal. They know we’re here as an audience, three of us heroes seated in chairs pulled up against a table. One of the two bodyguards puts a gun shaped like a thin pair of silver tweezers on the table in front of me as he glares over our heads and around the rest of the room. They agree on some price, and the new guy slips the leader a briefcase full of wadded bills. Bodyguard asks how many $20 bills are in there, and we expect an answer of 500 but instead he says 700 with a grin.
  • At that point I lunge for the gun on the table and grab it, and cock it under the desk – somehow, none of the bodyguards or dealers notice. Nonetheless, the other bodyguard walks up near the front of the deal as well, and I start shooting. Surprise! It’s a water pistol, but a really powerful one somehow, the work colleagues laugh as they’re taken down. Apparently this is more effective than my weapon the previous time we went through this reenactment, though I tried not to spray them too hard so they would hopefully dry up before we had to go back to work.
  • Snippet: This involved being invited to some sort of raid in Gridania (Bindings?) to unlock another raid. I got ninja-invited without my consent because I had been to the last few weekly runs in other raids, and I told Melody to sign up, she got the last spot (but was only a name in my dream — we never met). I had a linkshell (FFXIV chat channel) invite to mod a channel called “annoyingnewbies”. I was booting or downvoting people on one smaller linkshell for being “yellow/red” and another even smaller one for being “red”, whatever criteria that was (annoyance level or beauty level or something).
Sep 16 2016
  • I was taking some kind of exam/test, and looking for a coworkers’ office on the 2nd/3rd floor of a building but it wasn’t there. There was a superpower or game objective of some sort that had me climbing ledges, posts, and things in the “city” outside the building to get from place to place. Someone gave me a hint that if I was too high up to swing to a location from a post, I should just drop straight down to the floor and sometimes it would bug out and deposit me at the location anyway.
  • I was hunting people/targets that had a certain quality, and hurling green-shirted and white-shirted soldiers (greens were worth more point) into a wall for points at one point. At another point, I was with some kids playing the same game, and they were divining targets on the floor, standing at a particular spot and facing a certain direction and an arrow would appear on the ground either in front of them or behind them, pointing them toward the nearest target.
Sep 17 2016

Dream 1

  • This was a turn-based game. Melody and I were a team, and explored the world together. We approached an archway which had been advertised on the map, Melody told me to stand on the default side of the arch to take care of it while she tried to do the arch. The arch was also an unmarked location where other students/competitors would spawn and interact with the arch/puzzle, and we were annoyed at that.
  • The arch “resolved” every turn, pulsing once and giving out points based on the current positions to anyone near her, then pushing them all back a step or two. There was a cliff on Mel’s side of the arch. She had to constantly readjust position after every turn to make sure she did not get knocked off. Whereas I would move forward a bit after each turn to stay within range of the arch, since I was getting knocked away from it. We did this for a few turns to get rid of anyone else nearby before moving on.

Dream 2

  • This involved an adult movie shoot, which featured a character that initially started as me, but was more of a 3rd person camera, and once she reached the apartment door became a Fade to Black scene and ended up being credited to someone with a screen actor name of Uru. I started in a white spaghetti strap top tightly pulled over my breasts, a dark red front-buttoned cotton blouse that was unbuttoned and hanging down from the shoulders, and some sort of skirt, trapped by pouring rain under a building’s shelter but needing to reach another building that was about a 12-second dash away. I/she ran, fell halfway there, got up and kept running, and my clothes were soaked by the time I reached the other building.
  • I took off the blouse to carry in my hands so it would dry quicker, acutely aware that the dark areola of my nipples were prominently showing from under the spaghetti top. Climbing the narrow flight of stairs, I passed an open apartment door and was accosted by one of the men living in there, who chatted me up in a friendly manner. I flirted back in a friendly manner. Apparently there were 5 men living there and as I slowly dried off, he poked his head back in and called out one of the guys from an adjoining room. There was a big burly guy, he took my blouse from me and told me I had two choices, come in and serve them all or walk away dressed as I am and have to explain my half-naked state to everyone else.
  • I whimpered and pleaded but eventually went in, at which point control ceded and “she” was brought inside and then into a side room past some dingy-looking door with a male bathroom sign on it. She was their reluctant prisoner for a week, used multiple times by each of them, after which the scene shifted to her disheveled form outside the door wearing the same thing as before. She had not been allowed to clean up on the final day, so her panties were stained from still having a deposit of seed slowly dribbling out from inside her sex as a parting gift, her hair was still matted and damp, and her spaghetti top was still wet as though no drying had taken place in that one week period. They then returned the blouse and sent her on her way.
  • The week had passed/faded to black within a few seconds, however of note was that the main room had two computers/laptops on tables and a lot of paraphenalia around, as though they were some sort of home office, and both computers were occupied almost all the time by the men. Also each of the men owned a teddy bear, and one of the men asked another why his (and someone else’s) teddy bear was so darned ~normal~. The bear in question had a little top hat and a moustache, though.
  • Then the scene shifted again to a gala reception scene, with a large crowd in formal wear seated in a hall, in front of a stage. this location has been a reoccurring part of other dreams in the past – but usually in those dreams I’m a burglar outside the event hall trying to escape via climbing the roofs and such. This time, I was watching the hosts mention that porn video and how critics loved the look of fear on “Uru’s” face and the realistic way she acted, and how an analyst was describing that since this was her first time, the fear of the unknown and how everything was new added up to a really stimulating first-timer scene, which would never be able to be captured again. There was mention of some sort of bonfire as well, but the scene on the screen was of Uru tied up in a bathtub, water coming up to her ample boobs, and about two dozen candles floating around in the water on little metal platters, casting flickering round shadows against her and the sides of the tub as she whimpered and tried not to struggle too much. Cue audience applause.
Sep 20 2016
  • There was some sort of game world where the object was to gather/find some chests or target items. I had a nameless, faceless partner and we could summon a turret or companion of some kind. The first/main target was in a sort of cove area and guarded by some robot dogs or similar enemies, which proved too difficult for us to easily obtain (though we did do it the first time) and impossible for most other groups. A back way then “opened” up, it was a water path that involved jumping on barely-submerged stones (shaped like lily pads) set in the water and a shortcut that you could jump off the path and swim for, but your stamina would rapidly drain while doing so. There was a small segment of rock that was barely jutting out of the surface water though, and resting there restored my stamina.
  • At some point I realised that there was a secretly accessible mountain ledge next to the start of the water path, that contained another chest and target item. I leaped up while my partner went to find a third person before getting ready to teleport to me. To get from the ledge to the chest involved hopping on more of those round “lily pad” stones, but instead of being in water, these were floating in mid air not far from each other, and formed the shape of a gently rising circle with one or two loops that led to another ledge just above me.
Sep 21 2016
  • Snippet: This took place in a school/university/airport? setting. There was an overarching minigame to get a team and find artifacts in a maze of some sort, mixed in with meetings with different people in rooms. There were zones, the higher level ones were tougher or out of bounds which was why a team was needed.
  • Snippet: In the last scene before I woke up, the rooms were portraying my workspace. I was in one room, Shelley was in another. Johannes passed by and yelled to ask if anyone had had tickets dealing with Black ??? Company/Consortium in the past? I had, with Brad, but it wasn’t a ticket, it involved a Linux script file that we (mostly he) ran for them that I didn’t understand. I yelled out that I had but was ignored, Johannes went into Shelley‘s room instead and shut the door. I frowned, went over, and knocked. I first knocked on a wrong door somehow in between our offices, some chubby lady answered and smiled. Then I knocked on his, got admitted in, explained myself, then got admonished for disturbing them when the door was shut. I got both upset and annoyed by that, but took the ticket anyway, then left them be and gathered my stuff to go home early, leaving a complaint to Ronnie that they were being unprofessional. He was sympathetic and said he would look into it.
  • Snippet: Also, I don’t remember the context, but I do remember meeting Satinel and having her talking about her “former” children.
Sep 23 2016
  • Snippet: Just before I woke up, I had a top-down game view of a square room or square-shaped item, about 4 or 5 tiles wide and long, surrounded by about 12-15 tiny rectangular rooms/cells that were each 1×2 tiles wide. I was trying to unlock and open all of them to get to or free the middle item/room, and had opened about 2 or 3 cells when I woke up. Most of the rooms contained some generic creature or other, but one of them contained a friendly blink dog, who proceeded to vanish and appear a few tiles away.
  • Snippet: The only other dream detail I remember is that “realising” that the captain of the Firefly ship died to protect one of his colleagues in the final episode and that is why there are no more seasons of the show. And that it was super sad and none of my friends wanted to watch it due to that. I have no idea if he actually dies or not in the real life show.
Sep 25 2016
  • I and some nameless companion were in an MMO world that could not decide between two different levelling schemes, or was going to debut a new one tomorrow. It was a school block setting with many different rooms, and an open grassy quad in the middle that was entirely surrounded by the block. One of the levelling schemes somehow was the “ArcheAge” levelling scheme, and I knew it was very Pay-2-Win, but not the details or how/why.
  • Scene shift to a little outdoor coffee shop that was likely part of that building. There were a couple locked doors nearby that we could not access but needed to go through for our current objective, and the only way to do so was to find someone to unlock the door. Upon talking to a couple nearby people, they indicated that we had to find “Momma” to do so as only she could unlock it.
  • The scene shifted again to a building next to this coffee shop, it was a palace of sorts that “Momma” lived within. A lot of the doors were locked, and the entire place was under a silence spell unless Momma acknowledged you and allowed you to speak. Scanlan was there with me this time. We were in a corridor and trying to gesture to her through the glass panel in the door as she was in the room next to us but she didn’t see us for some time. Finally she did, and came to let us in, and was going to give us a short tour of the place.
  • Leading us down a corridor from the place, Scanlan found an artifact or treasured memento of some kind in that corridor that Momma and crew had no idea existed. She warmed up to us a bit from there and we tried to use that opportunity to chat her up and befriend her (and asked for permission to unlock the door), though she did chide me a bit at some point. When asked why the palace was like this, she shrugged and said that’s the way they were on her planet/realm/something similar. It was as natural as us wearing clothes. Everyone there also had both male and female reproductive organs there (and this was their palace) and that was how their society lived and functioned. I woke up at that point.

  • I was travelling by night around an area with several canyon paths. Night travel was “dangerous”, with enemy encounters here and there. A couple good/dubious NPCs were wandering too and could generally beat up the encounters. We (whoever was with me) did go into an NPC house and found a bunch of mattresses on the floor for rent, for between 100-140 gold each.
  • We ran into an encounter against something that looked like Krang from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, who beckoned up someone that resembled Batman, as though wanting to talk to him, then pulled out a shotgun and blasted him, sending him flying backwards and injured. When he regained consciousness, “Krang” was mimicking pulling out a gun from his side and shooting him with his fingers over and over again, cackling to himself and poking fun at “Batman“. Batman was annoyed but had to approach him again for some reason or other and got shotgunned and flew away from the force of the impact again.
  • We also visited my usual Chinese food store, Hoho’s, and I was lifetime visitor 6665. They had no other customers though so I couldn’t wait around for someone else to go first.

Dream 1

  • I had a dream where I had a bunch of friends and also led a “second life” where I was something similar to a sex worker. I and someone else were hired by 4 or 5 men, they took turns reducing the health points of something from 30k toward 0 in front of a camera, and they had us prance around and make pouty lips and poses toward the camera at various points. I thought it was a sex-related gig and that we would be obliged to please the men at some point but the other girl reassured me (after it was over) saying that all they wanted were a couple showgirls for the tv show, to bare some flesh and attract some eyes.

Dream 2

  • People were searching a room (that we had recently found/captured) for technological secrets of some sort. There was a director someone was in communication with, and the searchers reported that they couldn’t find anything of note, though they were eyeing a strange machine that was set into a groove in the ground against a wall. They were convinced it was broken though, as it was falling apart each time they touched it.
  • But then somehow, either one of them or an anthromorphic cat did find something in that machine, and took off toward the door hurriedly with the research. But men suddenly burst in, grabbing that person/cat (and possibly other people too). But not before he managed to secretly drop the item/evidence.
  • The camera shifted down to a famous mouse, I’m not sure which, but I think it was Jerry from Tom and Jerry, who was underfoot and watching from a hole in the wall at floor level. He saw the item drop, scurried out and grab it, then found himself against a wall by some lockers. There was a USB key shaped technological bauble on the floor, he picked it up, one side glowed, and pointing it up at the locker caused a click and the locker to unlock and swing open. Jerry jumped in and shut the door.
  • Fade to 12 hours later and a sweat-streaked and tired Jerry opening the locker door. There was silence, all the men were gone. He came out and saw a gathering of 15-20+ animals, mice and kittens. Some of the mice were really angry with him for hiding (they did not know he had found/secured the evidence), and others, mostly the kittens, were unconcerned and playing cards with each other. Jerry was very smelly from his time in the locker, so in reply/as revenge, he stretched his arms over his head and yawned, walking slowly back toward the locker/room exit. The animals around him started collapsing from the stench of his underarms/sweat after the 12 hours he had spent in the locker.

Dream 3

  • I was on my way to the bookstore, possibly with someone else, to buy thread-erasers. Passed by an open window where Amy and Jeremy were inside. She leaned out the first floor window, and chatted in a friendly manner with me. Jeremy appeared too, stuff happened and he ended up outside the window, she flirted with him, asking him to come back and see something, showing us her cleavage as she did so. I eventually left them alone and reached the store to browse the thread-erasers. I decided that a spool of white thread made the best erasers, though there were many other colours there.
Sep 30 2016
  • We hired someone to our work team from another unit in our department. Then we found out that the unit he came from was disbanding, but that decision had been reversed. At that point, he snubbed us back with a “Well, I’m not really interested in working for you. I just did it because I had no choice. I’m going back to my old team.”

Oct 02 2016
  • The great theft. There was an evil corporation owned by an evil mastermind, who among other powers had the ability to skinchange and look like one of us, and infiltrate the bus that we occupied sometimes. We tried to steal or rescue things from them, but had gotten foiled the first time around. He also had employees that worked for him but were good people. The dream involved a road that used to have terrible traffic jams, and a room off to the left side of the bus that we had incorrectly assumed was empty. The second time around we managed to figure out a way to “liberate” a lot of goods from him, it involved a lot of cooperation, skill and timing around defeating three things or doing three actions at once. The escape plan involved a bus as well as an LRT train just past where a traffic jam used to occur (many years ago). The original theft itself involved an MMO overhead map as well as possibly digging for and finding treasure.
  • There were a lot of strange conversations on the bus, and people with random names that I don’t actually know in real life. The last one I remember was a girl dressed in a yellow dress and some kind of shawl over top, talking about how once when she and her parents were going out for some night trip on the town, she and her mother both picked a yellow dress that looked nearly identical to each other. It was embarrassing but both were too lazy to change it. Her father went behind her and undid the knot of the dress and tied it one notch higher, and she had exclaimed how tight it felt at first but quickly realised she liked it, and that was the story of why she wore the dress the way she had that day now.
  • There was also someone on the bus during the escape attempt who started saying “we shouldn’t do this”, and we were accusing them of being a corporate shill for the evil mastermind. But it turned out she was talking about visiting a bad website and possibly risking a dangerous script running on someone else’s laptop.
  • At some point Johannes was on the bus too and had departed to start to transfer his things over to the train. But he had left behind a credstick, a stick-shaped object about the size of a USB with digital money on it, which was worth about half the value of his own personal haul. He had been seated next to me, so I held on to it for safekeeping and waved it at him through the door of the bus once he turned around (he hadn’t gone far at all when he realized he had left it behind). The bus driver wouldn’t let him back on at first because she didn’t know if he was evil in disguise, but I told her it was okay so she finally let him on and I returned it to him.
Oct 05 2016
  • I had a dream there was a “rival group of friends” who was watching one of the movies we already watched for movie night a few weeks ago and I was scoffing at them, but I dont remember any other details.
Oct 09 2016
  • There was a co-op/team match-3 game which we played. The game involved 3v3 matches, and we swapped partners at one point. Thor was the highest dps character ingame on the tracker, and there were some other Marvel and non-Marvel characters involved too). Later on, there was a scene with lava, and trying to get past a patrolling dullahan and two dogs that could only detect intruders in their frontal arc of vision. There was also a flea market.
Oct 11 2016
  • I was going through old boxes of memories and papers and sorting them with Kel and Jon. Were we moving house?
Oct 12 2016
  • I was selling a solar-powered engine that was powering my bicycle, but could also power houses. I had to rush home on my bicycle to get a dress that would fit me, and Dad said that was free advertising of sorts even though the journey felt slow and long.
Oct 13 2016
  • I don’t remember much, but we did load up Matt‘s large truck with furniture and stuff at some point, which we were rescuing from a friend’s building that was in some sort of danger. He had to go pick up his kids in a smaller car instead. Also Ronnie had a blue car that we met a couple times, once when I had boarded the passenger cockpit seat of a large and quiet airplane that was going to runway travel along regular roads before taking off. I waved to him out of the side window of the cockpit.
Oct 17 2016
  • I had an argument with Ronnie about the seating arrangements in a Business Process Mapping class, except this was translated into the context of the team being together in another class now. Somehow Ronnie and I settled it by going on a quest of our own to do some things as/before the class was starting.
  • Editor: I took this class on October 12 2016. It was a full-day event.
Oct 20 2016
  • I was in a group of 4 rpg characters (with Johannes playing the tank, and Jahandar playing an archer) trying to kill a boss ogre magi, except we were having some trouble because Archer was a basic class, and I was the highest level and kept pulling dps aggro as the healer. I accidentally reset the boss by lifting him two inches off the ground to hold him in place, and triggering some sort of anti-exploit no-pathing mode. This “dungeon”/cave was nearby a little cul-de-sac on the world map that was also featured in last night’s dream (not written down), where a deadly world boss spawns every now and then and the pros would lament in the “General Chat” zone-wide chat channel about how tough he was.
  • Prior to this, I had bought a new horse to level my Riding skill with as I had some extra gold and was travelling across the continent, and already had the Riding skill at level 9. However I found that the horse had +48 will (more power to cast skills) instead of +48 health (more survivability), and I was annoyed at that but couldn’t undo the purchase.
Oct 23 2016
  • I was digging something up (or solving something?) with Kim. There was an underground settlement with 3 levels and a front and back area. It was obviously some sort of a mining place, as there were open veins of coal.
  • A guy was in a submarine “tour” when the submarine malfunctioned and didn’t stop until it reached Australia. He had two of several animals (giraffes, etc) on board too so he had to get help from a local zoo to store them.
  • I was in a hall watching them announce the teams for the League of Legends worlds semi final, including one team that was all female. The final “tomorrow” also featured some 1v1 contests, with two male guests vs Allen and Eileen, one after the other.
  • There was also a game/puzzle where someone was trapped and we had to solve a puzzle to try to free them. This involved poring through her dialogue script (which had some hilarious monologues), and figuring out coordinates for a key. She had “realistic” monologues involving being bored instead of being horrified.
Oct 26 2016
  • There was a classroom scene. Ronnie bought and forgot his lunch, I quietly brought it in. The classmates included both people from work and people from Dunman High. Someone was trying to convince us to volunteer for some event as IT techs. Another person was talking to me about someone else being late for college classes by 3 hours. There was a mysterious world on the other side of a crack in the wall where there were obstacles and buffs and I/someone was being chased by giant rats while trying to grab something and get out.
Oct 27 2016
  • I was about to take an exam with classmates from Dunman as well as other people (Discord, elsewhere, can’t remember). We had some Indian lady as a substitute teacher. I was a leader-type and helped the teacher print out the pages for the exam, sort the pages for each exam, and paperclip them together.
  • There was also some sort of game involved in (or just before) retrieving the pages. Don’t remember much detail but one of them involved having some animal characters that could cut leather pieces into squares, and do something else, but those skills only unlocked on weekends. They otherwise had no appropriate skill. However the human members of my team/colony could only use round pieces of leather.
  • After the game resolved, we went back to the classroom setting. Half of us were in our homeroom classroom waiting for the test to start, on the 3rd floor of the class building, the other half were two or three classrooms down the hall in the substitute teacher’s homeroom.
  • There was some chatter, and someone commented that I had managed to keep secret the fact that I was helping put together the exam pages and how impressive that was. I deflected it by saying I had mentioned it once and patted the stack of papers a minute or two ago.
  • I remembered we were supposed to use the other classrooms and herded everyone in our homeroom over. We were still on time. I entered the substitute teacher’s classroom to find out that despite asking me to print and put together the exams for her, she had done so herself as well and had stapled her copies together. I concluded that she had trust issues.
  • I gave her the paperclip copies, and then took one of her copies anyway. The first couple columns of desks were already occupied by some girls and I had to step over a bag and settle down at the front of the third column.
  • Zixiang was stunned that he had only gotten 10.5 or 11.5 or something on the verbal/acting part of the course, as he needed 11 or 12 or something to pass. As I settled down and started into the paper, he started doing a loud verbal presentation at the front of the class.
  • I complained, and the teacher frowned and said that that there was nothing wrong with that, and implied that she had offered him to do that. She said that my protests and complains were inappropriate but his presentation was fine. She then laughed and incremented a tally counter on the board with chalk — she apparently had an inappropriateness quota she needed to meet by penalizing us.
  • I stood up, stormed out, and headed over toward Student Services to complain, taking the stairs down from the 3rd floor to the 1st. On the way there, I ran into an African-American guy who asked if I was busy. I said maybe. He said he was in charge of his younger brother and had let him use his computer. But he was computer illiterate and it had broken down. It didn’t seem to be anyone’s fault. I said I could try to help him if he described the issue, though I probably couldn’t fix it for him. He ended up leaving anyway.
  • I went over to the Student Services building next door. I was pushing some trolley-like thing at this point (some sort of luggage cart) and stopped briefly to let a young girl grab hold of it and get on, both for balance and for speed in getting where she was going, as I pushed her along.
  • Reaching the Student Services building, there were three separate queues, the middle one for Ancillary Services, the right one containing 4 or 5 students, and one on the left, but none of them seem to fit the bill exactly, though someone suggested the middle one was the closest to what I was looking for. There was also a vague concept of another queue in another building that might have been the right one too, but I didn’t explore that option, as I then woke up.
Oct 29 2016
  • There was a girl no one in a group liked, and she was eventually left in a cage on the moon. She was also handcuffed at some point. I went to free her, at which point I was then shown her biography. She was tall and thin (though within human proportions) and may have joined my team afterwards.
  • Later, I forgave and freed a man, who then crashed a wedding that took place on “conveyor belt” ropes and married a girl that was going to marry someone else. He then fled when I chased him.
  • Lastly, there was a big search for a marble, and we were competing with another group of people to find it first. But I realised some time into the search that there was also one in my backpack, and we could just use that even though it was not the specific one we were looking for.
Oct 30 2016
  • I went to St. Stephen’s College to do some work/use their Internet. I met Eva there. We talked about how much the place had changed. Many people were in offices, besides those at the front desk. We went down to the basement of St. Stephen’s College to try to wait for Shelley – there was an underground LRT station exit there and Eva said that Shelle‎y often took that route on her way to for lunch break. The name of the LRT station was “Fox <something>”
  • Editor: St. Stephen’s College (SSC) is a specific department at the University of Alberta that I used to help do Deskside Support for. Eva and Shelle‎y in this context are actual people that work there.
Oct 31 2016
  • I had a unicycle for travelling between places. But it could not be ridden on roads. I sort of cycled around and then back to the house once my parents had left.
  • Depressed, I didn’t go to work. I played chapter 4 of some weird episodic game, with Mell watching. I cried at the ending. I also unlocked a cosmetic for Just Cause 3 or Payday at the end of it all.
  • I got some info on some names I had to do something with, from a St. Stephens College employee, who stored the info on a thumb drive/external drive that I noticed was misleadingly named “H: (Porno)”.

Nov 2016

Nov 01 2016
  • Ronnie took an emergency week off, so our work team was relegated to “work tickets only” instead of project work, and also had the option to work from home if desired.
  • We “hired” a new guy, and we described and then took him around the tall building where the dream took place, detailing to him the different parties and stuff that happened on different floors (some of which I visited in past dreams).
  • I “found” a Nexus 7 tablet with an identical cover to mine lying on the table in a room, but I knew it wasn’t mine. It turns out it was Eileen‘s, she was one of those in the room along with other work people, I realized after we had finished some sort of test/paper there.
Nov 03 2016
  • We were leading a group of new guildmates on a circuit across several zones for hunting marks, aka specific named monsters that we had to kill for quests. I was the scout, using an application called Guildwork that helped with organizing parties, and I was announcing my finds in some linkshells (global chat channels) as well. Satinel was the leader of the actual group, making sure the newbies came along safely. We did a few without incident, sometimes alone, sometimes with others.
  • Eventually there was an area with a long east-west path, and spawn points on both ends. We reached the western end first and either killed the hunt mark there or set up to wait for it to respawn, but as many of our group was still lagging behind, I decided I would run to the east end of the path to look as well.
  • It was night, and the path was long but quite well lit. I got to the end, then realised it was a silly move because it was night and the hill on the eastern end was steeped in darkness, so I could not see the gargoyle that could spawn there anyway. I turned around to go back.
  • I sent a couple tells to Satinel, one to the effect of “Hey, I’m ready to return, can you please summon me to your side? Oh wait.. we haven’t done the (FFXIV marriage) event that allows us to do that, haha.” The second was asking for some sort of summon anyway, there was a teleport point in the middle of the path and possibly that was what I needed help with as I couldn’t/didn’t teleport to it alone, or perhaps it was to ask her to wait for me as I ran back.
  • I started to run back along the path, as the stragglers in Satinel‘s group all finally reached the clearing and formed a circle on the minimap with her at the head of the circle. At this point I was carrying a large one person rectangular bed too, but folded up like a telescope/tripod and shaped like a staff weapon.
  • There were lots of people on the brightly lit path now, mostly random Chinese guys, and shops and stalls along the side. I had to dodge people and their curious looks as I ran west, as well as listen to tales of people being mugged of items by others, and those others blatantly trying to sell the mugged items to other people while the owner’s original tag was still on the items.
  • No one tried to mug me though. I was annoyed I didn’t get a response/summon because I was missing out on stuff, and cried out a “Hey, check your tells!” once I finally reached back to the circle where she was telling them something or other. She then embarrassed me by reading the two tells out loud to the group.
  • Either way I shrugged, joined the circle and asked for a recap/restart of whatever they were doing now that I was back.
Nov 05 2016
  • I remember the song Slip Slidin’ Away playing in the dream. Slip-sliding away, slip-sliding awaaay..
  • There was a version of ESO where players could pull carriages (rickshaws) to transport other players from A to B.
  • There also was a wave-based MMO survival with some friends. We got some loot and tokens after each round.
  • Healers were reliant on 4 crafting classes – alchemists to make potions, stone-makers/pebblers(?) for buff/healing stones, and two others. The game had crafting specializations that players could take, so I was pondering which one to take as a healer.
  • Somewhere in the dream there was also a price drop for Overwatch.
  • Editor: The song listed above is Slip Slidin’ Away, from Paul Simon.
Nov 06 2016
  • A mother amiably kicked an elder son out of the house to live by himself, she locked the door and sealed the blinds to the house. His younger brother and a baby/dog playing outside later knocked on the window during the evening to try to get in, but there was no reply from mother. He didn’t think much of it, so the two of them crawled in through a window and went to sleep. Next morning he found his mother unconscious on the floor due to not eating pills in time or running out of pills, something that the elder brother would have normally taken care of. Once she regained consciousness she smiled and said not to worry.
  • There was a folded game board that showed the start of a vertical-scrolling endless dungeon, with a mini settlement right at the entrance. A bunch of balls were dropped down into the dungeon, falling below the borders of the game board and bouncing down into uncharted territory, but they got stuck at some point.
  • We needed to close the board borders up and move it somewhere else to try to rescue the fallen balls, so we did so and then recruited a settler/builder game piece to assist us so we could build a settlement down in the endless dungeon. When we unfolded the game board however, we only had the top level visible still, everything below the pit drops was gone. We hoped the layout was the same anyway and wouldn’t morph, and set off down on the journey.
  • At some point there were flashbacks to Utopia, I had soldiers/troops I could assign to attack someone else’s land, as well as things I could invest them into — food, exploration, two types of science, etc that would give bonuses to my kingdom. Since everyone else was well-established, however, I sent most of them just to attack someone else.
Nov 09 2016
  • There was a computer game that I watched a bit of before joining. It involved killing monsters to level up, and had a list of about 10-15 skills.
  • There was a “Gathering” style skill that started with the letter T or something, started at 0, max skill 8. I wanted this to harvest berries. There was also a “Fighting” style skill that started with an early letter of the alphabet, started at 0, max skill 12 or so.
  • I didn’t really want to do the fighting bit, only the gathering bit, so Jah levelled the character from level 1 to 5 or so for me via Jah Stream Night.
  • The Palantiri as a guild were present, as a “rival” group in a class that I was also in (outside of this computer game). They were collectively much more advanced in the game than our guild was. Pinkfae came to hang out with us a bit.
Nov 12 2016
  • I was the “Warrior of Light” – A mother right at the end thanked me and said she would tell her child all about me.
  • There were two cases of documents, the left one had a glass cover, I had to carve it open using my finger, to match an object moving on rails inside the case, and retrieve some things from it.
  • A prior “warrior of light” story that I heard about involved parents somehow, timing (I think), loneliness, as well as quests/objectives.
  • Dad at one point went to the library to find Mom, Jon, and Kel, but failed to see them cause he was shortsighted. They saw him though as he was leaving and told him that later at home.
Nov 15 2016
  • Together with a team of others, I was retrieving brooches, signets, and other jewellery pieces that phased in and out of existence on the ground. Brooches and pinned nametags were worth a particularly high number of points.
Nov 18 2016
  • I was helping someone who identified to be from central HR with a work ticket. Her name was similar to Ellen Madsen. She was very impatient, even though she was reopening a one year old ticket (which I remembered about somehow).
  • That ticket was when I was pre-transition, and now I was post-surgery, so I knew her but she didn’t recognise me. She kept misunderstanding and twisting the meaning of small things in what we said.
  • I was also helping a new person (child like, but not a child) with some stealth missions. There were a bunch of kids in a level we had to sneak up on and knock unconscious.
  • I was also on a flying plane at some point and someone else in a fur coat boarded mid-flight. We were annoyed and also wondered how they managed that — not the flying bit, but that the price of the flight was $2000, and he had only paid $1000 to the airport. He paid the flight attendants the rest by giving them five previous plane stubs which each counted toward part of the fare as well, and indicated that he had done this at least 5 other times before somehow.
  • Later, I hung out with Matt at his place for a little while. I drew on his chalkboard, tried to fix his phone, and puzzled over a word for a type of lingerie that we couldn’t remember from a past dream. Kim and someone else complimented my hair, said it was really nice and I was too modest about it. Wanted to go play soccer with her but we didn’t have time.
  • I did an emote quest in the Gold Saucer, the casino zone in FFXIV, except the very last objective was to summon a blue carbuncle triated defence. I had to port out to one of the Thanalan zones to equip a trait to get that emote, but because I had a security key on my account, this triggered a cutscene when I got back into the casino zone, and I was unable to claim that reward (which was the very last one).
  • The second last objective or quest did grant a hairstyle unlock item. Nothing to do with the above Kim thing though, as I never used the item before meeting her afterwards.
Nov 23 2016
  • I had to rescue people/items from junkyards that were casually “guarded” by enemies. This involved sneaking through ruins and abandoned toilets and such to reach the marked points on the minimap.
  • Also there was a trip on a tourist train of some sort that I first took by myself, then later on with Mom.
Nov 25 2016
  • Each armed with a weapon we didn’t use, me and a female friend (Satinel? Steffy?) had to visit 12 different libraries, infiltrating and finding a banned book in each one to find out about some monsters. We snuck around or used library tours etc to access those books.
Nov 26 2016
  • A friend and I joined a gangsterish club on campus, headed by someone we sort of disliked, I forget who, possibly from Lotro. Our first target was HSC, whatever that was, because they had publicly rejected us when we were looking for partners. Jah was there too, as were some others.
  • I detailed a previous dream event that I had a long time ago where 3 of us snuck around in the dark campus all night, but the policemen could not find us. Jah chipped in with some detail about us calling him afterwards.
  • We went to some sort of shop where there were a bunch of policemen, and proceeded to hang out there and pick them off (knock them unconscious, tie, and gag them up) one by one.
  • The scene also shifted at some point to an old dream where 4 of us were tenants in a house and we had to find some sort of utility tool and then knock out the landlord and a couple other people, but the details are fuzzy.
Nov 27 2016
  • In a competitive game of Overwatch, I had to play the character named Roadhog. The aim was to drag a chest of herbs up a building using the stairs. On the 8th floor was a dilapidated door leading to a narrow platform across midair and over to a neighbouring building. That platform was only 1 storey above the road below (it wasn’t stretching out the same direction as the original entrance to the building, so the height difference was due to the terrain elevation of a hill). However, the platform was not complete and involved a couple jumps over gaps in the floor, so I couldn’t make it over while lugging the chest.
  • Defence and Tank skills were listed under a category called J – Jumping or something like that. That platform explained why!
  • A young woman who was a new mother was playing Russian Roulette, when she shot herself in the neck. It was in the news, and very graphic, the video highlight kept looping. She was buzzed and drunk and had a didn’t care attitude on her face until the 2nd shot left the bullet hole, then she staggered. She was brown-skinned and her first name was something like Ghoa, her last name had 8 letters.
  • The news said that she was known for crazy things, for example she had driven and steered a Dodge car by sitting on a stick that was also attached to a horse and rotating slowly.
  • Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton were also featured in another news story, arguing about the sanity and intent of someone who had brought an army of guns to a police station.

  • Kimberly, while on the Deskside Support team at work, had to go to a client’s house and was kept there overnight troubleshooting something and talking to the talkative blonde woman there. It was sometime between 2am and 6am and she was dead tired by the time it ended, so she didn’t return to the communal employee house that night. I offered to drive her back the next morning. She was super tired while driving a truck and said coffee had no effect on her whatsoever. I had a motorcycle I could make invisible.
Dec 05 2016
  • There was a public party going on somewhere, and we walked to/from it through Singapore-style HDB void decks. The party bus driving people to that drove over a cliff in Los Angeles, killing 60 and injuring lots, but the party itself continued despite the protests of a couple people at the event. I wasn’t allowed in to get to the food until late into the party.
  • There was a TV documentary regarding recycling of some kind. Dad was poo-pooing it a bit on the way home so Kel and I walked separately from him, not wanting to associate with his bad opinions.
  • The Edmonton Oilers made a trade, but everyone was unsure what we traded as the defender that everyone guessed would be traded was still playing for us immediately after the trade. There were 3 people not playing so everyone was speculating which one got traded.
Dec 06 2016
  • I played an MMO called RAG, formerly known as Lemonfall, and which also had one other former name. The game recently got a new project lead. It was a sort of survival/exploration game where one of the selling points was that you could get kidnapped and level something that way.
  • In reality, in the “game”, I was basically on a visit to a foreign bed and breakfast motel place. I visited with Dad, who dumped me when I had to answer the motel phone to help a local external retail store get in touch with one of the motel guests.
  • There was a busy bus stop nearby with multiple buses that led off into the city proper. There was also a food stall place in the premises of the bed and breakfast and motel that sold many items, one of which was fried ant for $8. I wanted to get that because one of my goals was to eat something exotic every trip.
  • It was raining and I got lost at the bus stop and had to look up the name of the game on my phone to try to find my way back.
Dec 08 2016
  • I was taking part in the defence of a GW2-style castle with an inner and outer castle area. We were projected to lose badly, as the attacking guild/server had a lot of people and we had scant few defenders.
  • We set up at the choke point of the inner layer. “Last time” we apparently tried defending the outer one, but the walls didn’t upgrade quick enough, and they took the castle quickly.
  • The doors had health points and we could see the health percentage of the doors dropping as they were attacked. The outer walls had a north, east, and west castle door.
  • There were 3 castles being attacked by the invading server, ours was the bottom/southern one, the middle one was owned by a defunct guild so that one was taken first with little resistance.
  • They didn’t really attack our castle in the end, somehow. They did break through the outer wall but ended up sitting down and chatting and socializing with us instead of attacking.
  • I had to eat dinner half way through the “defence” and got yelled at briefly by the guild leader.
Dec 11 2016
  • This dream involved zombies, as well as Kel and her friend. There was a northern path stretching east from our house to a village with an inn, a ruined watchtower where the innkeeper used to live, and a few other buildings.
  • Mom put masking tape over the front door to prevent Kel and her friend from leaving by themselves, but they wanted to go to the village so they used the back door instead. Before they left, I X’ed all over a map telling them where the zombies were going to spawn. I had walked the same path and back a day earlier.
  • But they got tangled up with zombies, and had to invoke and learn some magicks from some magical stone in the ground that they should not have learnt yet. One of them was a black pokeball. The magic in the dream was colour-themed. There were stolen vehicles that followed a theme as well, but details are fuzzy.
  • There were school scenes too, and I had to deliver something to some female groundskeeper at an earlier point of the dream.
Dec 14 2016
  • I had a meta dream of sorts, a dream that I was having a dream about being in the exact same location. Something jolted me out of the “inner” dream but not the outer one.
  • There were a couple break ins/robberies, though I am unsure of the context. There was one really gory scene where a robber that broke in to our family house after we left in a car for a trip, was seen by a policeman who followed him in. The robber captured him at gunpoint, forced him to his knees in a corner, tied his hands in front of him, and started to torture him with high bursts of electricity. The policeman threw up a lot of vomit. He managed to eventually use his tied hands to grapple with the robber though, and force his head down into the vomit and drown him that way. Ugh.
Dec 20 2016
  • I dont remember my dream except that it had to do with two competing hotels or something side by side. They weren’t exclusively hotels, nor malls, but were some sort of a mix of the two. And there was a tinge of evil surrounding one if not both.
Dec 26 2016
  • I do remember chasing my younger siblings off the basement computer at Edmonton 4012 when they were watching something on it, so that I could do stuff on it, forgetting that there was an upstairs computer and it was a much better computer.
Dec 27 2016
  • After a long epic quest chain in FFXIV, I needed to fight Leviathan and went out to a large patch of water flanked on three sides by land to find him. There were quite a few other people there too, a group that was farming elite boss monsters (including Leviathan) among others.
  • I was with one other person (Satinel?) and we managed to summon him first once we arrived by destroying two square pillars. He then spawned from behind a wall, he looked like the Roadhog character from Overwatch in his initial stage.
  • The scene transitioned to the open ocean with us on a large cruise liner style ship, and a proper Leviathan monster with tentacles and such, as we defeated it. Satinel had frozen a strip of ice that he died beneath, but as I jumped and then knelt down to break through the ice, I had a Blue Screen of Death and my computer crashed, and I had to reboot before I could come back and loot his body for the quest.
  • Mom came by and started to nag us to go to bed as the computer was rebooting. That was when I woke up.
  • Snippet: Someone mentioned that Athera had stopped by his house to give him her dirty clothing to wash. She was homeless or something but it was cheaper to travel to other people’s countries to do laundry than to get a house.
  • Snippet: There was a general theme of homelessness and very expensive housing and us poor folks trying to rub shoulders with the city’s elite. But the authorities/government hated us and we were technically outlaws, and once they started to clamp down on us we moved to the neighbouring city and set up (or joined?) our guild there instead.
Dec 29 2016

Dream 1

  • I was with Kimberly at ECHA, after taking the train there to meet her there after school. She was going to help me look for an email address of a particular lady doctor that I could then use to track some part of my treatment in. The email address as far as we know had been decommissioned, Kimberly had access to a similar email address but it was for someone else or some other service.
  • An executive at some point wanted me to remove a graph on page 6 or 7 (7 or 8, counting the cover page) of a document that I had made for him. I couldn’t do it on the spot because I could only Remote Desktop in to my main home computer, but I had recently gotten a new home computer and the file was on an unconnected old one at home.
  • There was also discussion about some stairs in a stairwell that went through a lecture theatre, and whether we could reconstruct the stairs to make it more convenient for people, however we found that that would block the people in the seats from seeing the projector screen.
  • When I called her after reaching ECHA, Kim warned that it would rain because that’s what happens in January when she goes places. She still arrived, though.
  • We went up to the 2nd floor where it was out of bounds. There was a male toilet there and a male-female toilet there. The latter, when we went in, was full of dirty bathroom urinals and girl-urinals, and a couple stalls, and a narrator or someone ranting about the girl-urinals and talking about how useless they were and how a 56 year old motorcycle male would lose all his credibility by using them.
  • Outside, we got attacked and had to try to escape down the stairs to the safe area. We were both injured and downed, and Kimberly was worse off than me. But we made it halfway down the stairs and Good Samaritans came to help us, asking us where we were from (we said the University) and how old we were (Kimberly said 17).
  • Then the doorbell rang and I woke up.

Dream 2 (Post-doorbell)

  • Some visiting South Korean girls had theirs bras stolen/misplaced because their laundry somehow got mixed up with a normal pile of clothes. We “adopted” one and took her to Goodwill, as it had lots of books as well as grocery and clothing sections and other misc stuff.
  • There while she shopped around I looked at some books, there were books on cryptography and stuff. Before long it was time to go again.
  • The girl had recruited a couple other people into her party from Goodwill, and we showed her how to bring up the menu and look at their weekly cost. It wasn’t much at all, something like 6000 Neopoints, and we told her to ask if she ever needed any, as we had tons, but that she’d find a ton of misc stuff and selling those would help.
  • Jah also noted that people could probably just stick to Neopets games and pages related to their jobs, plus one or two others.
  • We also saw an ad for some game, possibly Overwatch, that stole a community meme from Heroes of the Storm that was making fun of League of Legends (I think). It wasn’t a real-life meme.
Dec 30 2016
  • I was a submissive, along with two other people, to another woman, but I had to go to class so I got a bit jealous as the other two got to stay, help out with pushing garbage carts, follow some rules on what they had to wear outdoors, and generally get bossed around.
  • Classes had just reopened, most of the people in my class were wearing a white shirt and navy tie. I remember being proud of being in the class or thinking that the class was full of smart people.
  • The class was divided into 4 or 6 groups, I sat in the front left one with 4 people with Japanese-seeming names. Or perhaps English pseudonyms that were made out of two short words.
  • The class was then held up by a woman behind me who stood up and complained about how difficult the first assignment was to the teacher for a good few minutes. I said something derisive about the way she was complaining and how she just meant to say that -she- couldn’t do it.
  • The class was then held up a second time by someone from the Deskside Support team who came to class to help out a student who was also a fellow teammate with him, with something work-related. He drew out some instructions and complex engineering-style diagrams really quickly for his teammate to do while in class. The teacher got annoyed after a bit and gave him two minutes to finish up.
  • The class was then held up a third time by a friendly woman in a hijab who came down the aisles and asked if anyone could teach her English (or Singaporean?). She asked the teacher outright if he was Singaporean, he said yes, and she then offered him a wad of bills for him to teach her English. But her English was already pretty decent.
  • Before class, there was a lunch hall gathering where Tawheed or someone else in a team leader position at work complained about a professor that thought all their students’ grades were gone because it got output in an .mif file, and because the professor’s staff were all on holiday too, he or she couldn’t figure out how to open the file.

Jan 2017

Jan 04 2017
  • I did poorly on an exam because I did most of the short answer questions but was too tired to do the essay bit, so I went for a walk instead. The essay topic was something like “Dance of the Planes” and we were allowed open interpretation on what that meant.
Jan 05 2017
  • This dream involved a Critical Role game, where apparently the character Vax and a sibling of his died at the end of the previous episode (episode 8) which I didn’t watch, so Vex, Vax’s twin sister, had to attend this session to plead for their lives back from some deity in the game.
  • Matt from work was watching this Critical Role episode, as was I, and a few other people I knew. We had previously watched episodes 4 and 5 together, but had either watched or not watched 6-8 separately, so some of us were caught up with current happenings and some of us were not. Episodes 4 and 5 involved one of the characters learning to pilot a helicopter and being worryingly bad at it at first, but quickly picking up the skill.
  • Snippet: Our family had another half-English, half-French family come visit us, as well as a person who we had hired to go through Kel‘s laptop to find and retrieve old files and executables that had been installed on it when we were much younger. After going through the laptop, and pulling out and listing all the installed programs, she offered to do the same for all our other computers in the house for 50% off. Mom and I thought it was dumb so we declined.
Jan 06 2017
  • I was 10 minutes late for Chinese class at school, but the teacher and half the class was even later than me. Dad got me there in his car in record time.
  • Our classroom was usually divided into groups of 4 tables, with one person seated at each corner of the square that the tables created, but this time the classroom was divided groups of 2 tables each, side by side, and one person from each half of the room shared a table with someone from the other half. I took a seat at the front of the class, at the table in the middle column.
  • There was to be some sort of scoring between the two teams depending on class performance that day. Wela was the leader of the right side of the room, and I was the leader of the left side. She had a mug that said “Xiang Xiang” on it, and I mistook the first Chinese character of her name to be that Xiang at first too until she corrected me.
  • There were 11 people on her side and 14 on mine, including 2 indian boys and 1 Indian girl who were sitting right at the back of the class on the left side.
  • The previous class featured the Infrastructure Apps team at work, and some of the people were talking about how well they had done scoring-wise in the previous class at first, but that they usually cooled off after a hot start anyway.
Jan 15 2017
  • In another scene, we were hiding a corpse in a car trunk along with a couple other body bags. The death had happened before the scene started, so I don’t know the context behind it. Our car had also accidentally broke down, and four of us were trying to fix the busted wheel somehow. A cop came by and helped us with the car, although the first step of his help, much to our horror, was to unload the body bags to lighten the car’s weight. He didn’t notice the rotting corpse in the bag, though.
  • Once we got going again, Dad was driving the car and I was with him and told him to make sure not to change his pants after dumping the corpse, as that would give away that we were guilty — we’d seen on TV shows and such before that they’d use camera footage where the suspect had different pants later in the day, as proof of their guilt.
  • We needed to get some dinner, but the McDonalds that we drove to was closed with an Out of Ingredients sign outside. He didn’t want to stop by a nearby Chinese food place because he had already eaten from that store in the afternoon. We ended up driving around the block to a school campus building where there was another McD’s and some other food stalls, mostly Chinese, inside.
  • Snippet: There was a scene involving picking up skill/spell cards. Satinel was there and picked up 4 of a possible 5 cards.
  • Snippet: There was also some sort of a survival/army game scene, our army got attacked by another and I lost everything but my main hero and a basket of food, which I was trying to save from a horde of crows that descended on the area, and escape with before more cops showed up.
Jan 21 2017
  • I was floating up the river on a raft or boat, past swamplands and similar terrain. Jah was there, as were some of the X-Men, and some people from my earlier schools.
  • There were wild horses, mosquito mobs, and other beasts in the swamp. We did stop at some city and defeated Doctor Octopus driving a big Juggernaut machine. While we distracted him, a new recruit who could go invisible did so, then snuck behind the machine and took out his power source, and one of the X-Men guys jumped onto the machine, drove it into a wall and smashed it up, at which point it turned into an unconscious Juggernaut. As we left one of the X-Men predicted that he would be back.
  • The entire country was controlled by a tight-fisted government, I was in a bookstore owned by a good friend and there was a device there that would scan for books with certain 8-digit codes and automatically destroy the books if found.
  • By the dockside, a woman was announcing a new operative to destroy some animals, with the government-sponsored assurance that they didn’t have any souls, so it was ok to do. To prove it to the crowd, she took out several pieces of paper, wrote down on one that rubberbands had souls, and a second that rubberbands didn’t have souls. She asked God which was true, closed her eyes, and pointed to one. She opened her eyes and opened the piece of paper — No Soul.
  • Then she did the same for the animals. One piece of paper that said No Soul, and another that did. She closed her eyes and asked God, then pointed to one. This time, it landed on Soul. Ashen, she muttered some excuse, closed her eyes and did it again. Again, she landed on the Soul paper.
  • She got really upset about this, and she retired on the spot, saying that it wasn’t worth it and she should be able to earn some extra cash through retirement selling comic books from Earth or another old planet that she’d get a henchman to deliver now and then.
  • Some sort of day/night cycles where we possibly had to stay indoors at night. Wela was there, and we were chatting and noted that we had not met another high school friend, Jessica, in ages. She used some sort of text-based loudspeaker or ticker broadcast system to try to find her, typing out some a message in all caps.
Jan 23 2017
  • Snippet: I was discussing a previous scene with Satinel, something about being chained to a wall and tickled. I apparently lasted/endured all of 1 second.
  • Snippet: There was a plane crash, involving people from Singapore that I didn’t know. The plane was hijacked, left the airport overnight, continued along its normal route, and crashed at the final destination. No one survived.
  • Later on, I was turning the radio dial and listening to music from mini-live concerts on the various radio stations. One of the stations I was listening to paid tribute to the crash.
Jan 24 2017
  • Snippet: In real life, I was angry with Ronnie during the day, and even in my dreams last night I was still angry with Ronnie. Ronnie and Enrileta were both sick too and communicating with each other using some sort of hologram or image thing. She was showing him a cork board that she owned, with a bunch of things pinned on it.
  • Snippet: I was playing some MMO where my main character was living in a small guild, and my three lower-level alt characters were in a guild led by a talkative girl who was also in the main guild.
  • I eventually told her to shut up while on my main character, and she got mad and kicked my three alt characters from her guild and blocked me. I confirmed this by checking some sort of log that indicated that they were no longer in a guild library that I had left them in. Oh well, I preferred my current guild anyway.
Jan 27 2017
  • I visited a hotel early on, then again with my workmates and others about 3 to 4 days later. I had left my passport with the hotel staff in the meantime, but it was missing when we arrived there as a group.
  • They feigned ignorance, however my tablet, whose battery was dying, had some sort of camera app which had a description and timestamp of what happened as well. Using that, I was able to track it down. At 10:58 pm on the evening that I had left it there, the hotel was held up by men at gunpoint and the front desk guy on duty had surrendered the passports among other things.
  • The passport was in Eastern Europe by now though, and I knew that two men were working on counterfeiting it or something, and there was not much I could do about it.
  • Tyler P from work wanted to know what a particular Rihanna song sounded like. The title was something like “Come to the Party, Stay for the ???”. I have no idea what the last word was. I was the only one with a computer so I typed it into Spotify to see if I could play the song, but had to retype it 7 times or so before I could type it in accurately. It didn’t help that the first few times, I was trying to use a keyboard that was tucked away below my knees and very awkward to reach.
  • When we finally found the song, it was just a rehash (same tune, different lyrics) of another rather famous song, I forget which.

Feb 2017

Feb 15 2017
  • There was a Google presenter at the front of our class, playing a video for the class at a low volume while people were talking away at the back of the class. I raised my hand to get her to raise the volume on the video, but it was still mostly unintelligible.
  • Ronnie and Daniel were cleaning the whiteboard while the movie/show ran, Daniel erased all the tasks that were written on it, then wrote all over it with green marker, and then tried to erase that as well to make sure that everything was gone.
Feb 17 2017
  • A depressed girl tried to upload and share her feelings to a little depressed helper robot so that she could talk to him. Instead, she fried the robot’s memory while uploading her feelings.
  • That robot went down to the USA, possibly Seattle, looking for something in a store to restore his memory. He also visited a hardware store to look at Nintendo 3DS sales, and was going to look for a Walmart but never found one.
  • The little robot ran into a progression of people and robots who seemed to know who he was and wanted to help him. The first was a man and his robot. The third was a grandma of sorts who hugged him and then detached and gave him one of her nipples and led him through a waist-high tar swamp toward her home.
Feb 27 2017
  • There was a home invasion by two different gangs, fighting each other just outside an unlocked home in the desert. We were nearby and swept in afterwards to clean out the remaining gang members.
  • I assigned Jon and someone else to guard the door while I went room-to-room through the house to sweep it clean of danger after. Some of the electrical switches were wonky and had to be turned on more than once to work.
  • Elcor from Mass Effect were present, I think. One of them was sick.
Feb 28 2017
  • There was a “Cyberpunk” MMO based in the Tolkien world.
  • Reporters got different bonuses by acquiring things from normal citizens. This was colour-based, with red giving something different from blue.
  • The MMO also had housing based on 4×4 squares on the ground that you could turn into a house, like ArcheAge.
  • There was a dragon or spider cave that was used for initiation to unlock zones, but was also a grinding place for higher level characters.
  • Finally, there was something about an Administrator and a library-office that he resided in.

Mar 04 2017
  • There were people from Singapore, and I was meeting them at the local school food canteen. They were students at the school.
  • I bought noodles but the vendor only gave me half the dish.
  • Eileen was giving out bottles to collect liquids from professors/instructors.
Mar 05 2017
  • I was held prisoner by a bus driver inside a bus depot or building of sorts. I had to sit on a chair by a table while he went around and did stuff.
  • There was a computer in a neighbouring booth or room. I needed to pass 3 access checks and perform 3 tasks on the computer to alert the police and escape but kept bungling it up, and kept causing the computer to lock up or something, which made the program shut down.
  • I had the ability to use save games and load games but wanted to do it all in one go. The three tasks were to open the program, log in to the program, and upload coordinates.
  • The game also had bad endings that I saw and/or experienced, and some of the bad endings included him pushing a needle up through my neck, making me drink a cup of liquid that was labelled as a stat boosting liquid but would actually knock me out for days, and making me sign an obviosuly forged promotion letter for him.
Mar 08 2017
  • Amy took me to a Chinese grocery shopping/food neighbourhood in a narrow van after work, after picking up her kid, spending some time playing with him, and then leaving him at home.
  • Dad pretended to be a top 5 nationwide tax auditor/supervisor even though he had no qualifications, and managed to wow a tax company during the interview to get a job with them.
Mar 13 2017
  • Fames picked a 15-hour movie for Discord to watch that took 3 evenings to finish. Its name was Soykav or something very similar.
  • The plot involved the slow Americanization of a middle eastern country, possibly UAE. One part of the story involved a quote similar to “if one of their planes illegally flew over Saudi airspace on the way to another part of the country, it was still considered a local flight”, and the brutalization of the local government trying to stop people from taking that action.
  • There were about 15 acts or so in the story. There was a girl who got an American car and was friends with the female protagonist, but she was executed by the government via hanging in act 4 or so.
  • There was a guy hunted by a small group of police or soldiers, who ended up in a bunker and shot himself with a submachine gun as they approached. It initially looked like he died, but the movie displayed a replay showing that he feigned death and recovered using some medicine from his backpack once the soldiers had left.
  • Jah stayed up to watched the final night of the movie with Fames – I went to bed and was surprised it was still going on the next morning.
  • Later on, I had to take a plane home and I was in row 13 of the plane, next to the wings. They caught on fire, so I and the guy across the aisle from me both had to vent and flap the wings by each pulling a lever up and down so that the plane wouldn’t crash. Once it landed, we kept venting it until everyone else had left before we grabbed our stuff and left.
  • One of the things I grabbed was my lunch on a plate, and I dropped it upside down on the floor on the way out. But it had a cover of some sort on top of it, so I reached down and scooped most of it up without incident.
Mar 16 2017
  • It was Day 2 of 2 of “sex camp” – which was some kind of submissive training thing held at a convenience store. I was one of four registered submissives, other characters in the dream included the owners of the store, a bunch of dominants casually hanging-out, random former graduates, and even a little toddler that belonged to someone.
  • Today was the graduation and Dad drove me there for the event, then was going to go to a nearby dollar store while the event went on, though I did notice him in the crowd near the end before the final graduation bit. The four of us were probably naked, but it wasn’t emphasized, and the entire dream was very PG in nature, like it was a perfectly normal everyday event.
  • We were led to a cell and shown what happened in previous graduations — largely some rituals around the store that differed each year, a question and answer session and general chat with former dom/mes, and then a mass presentation thing in the middle of the store.
  • Our ritual this time was to take dough in our mouths and lick it onto a small, pre-existing wad of dough impaled on a stick stuck into the ground, thus forming a bigger wad of dough. It was suspended about as high as our mouths. This would later be destined to be coated with chocolate and sold.
  • The dream never finished, but we did get to the start of the graduation bit. The other submissives sat on a bench placed out in front of the crowd, but the toddler and two others took up the fourth and extra spots on the front bench and no one had specifically told me I was supposed to sit up there with the others so I ended up having to sit somewhere behind, at the right end on the third or fourth bench, together with the main crowd.
  • I was disappointed at this as it seemed I was ignored and forgotten, even though I had the best “score” of the four submissives, coming in to the graduation. Our relationship was friendly though, both with each other and some of the former girls.
  • There were other rituals going on, for example some sort of decursing ritual in the back behind some shelves where they were supposed to find some girl, and decurse some people and transfer the curses (in theory) to the willing girl, who would then accept it and bless the person who performed the ritual. Her blessing to the person was something strange like “You may now sneeze!” but not quite exactly that.
  • At some point a fire engine flew by at high speed in the sky, but got lost in the clouds once I pointed it out to the person whom was facing me and had his back to the balcony door. The vehicle was vertically aligned with the nose of the vehicle pointed down toward the ground.
Mar 31 2017
  • My dream had Fames win a Korean musical faceoff against some strangers by playing and singing a guitar rock song.

Apr 2017

Apr 04 2017
  • I was at an ice event in an outdoors arena — there were lots of people, sort of an adult family event. Many people had little catcher or scraper things with 3 prongs, each prong at a 120 angle from the other two, attached to the end of a pole. The aim of the event was to catch and destroy little specks of dirt or material that were released to the arena over time, by running it over with the catchers.
  • After the event, they had people bring out huge ice cubes and drop it on the ice, which caused the cubes to radiate ice streaks in every direction from the arena. They then slid the ice cubes toward people to force them to either get out of the way or catch the cubes to avoid getting it. It was a sort of really lighthearted trolling, and it was entirely expected by the audience and was by itself a part of the celebration.
Apr 15 2017
  • I and a few others were aurin lawyers from the future, there were three or four of us who were friends or siblings, plus a sentient television set. We now lived separately on our own and had a group of friends that hung out with us too. We all had different two-named titles. I had a third sister who was estranged from us two and wanted nothing to do with us, however the first sister wanted everyone else to not arrest her and to give her some time, because she had had a good heart-to-heart talk with the third sister and was confident she would come around to them eventually, it would just take a hundred years or so. I was the second sister.
  • However, we had also come here to prevent future doom in the form of the sentient television jumping up and down petulently and breaking a small vinyl record that belonged to the first sister, and which acted as a holoprojection of some kind so we could view its contents without having to play it in a machine. We failed to do so and watched in horror as it shattered.
  • We were also racing different people in their houses or in maps of some sort. This involved some sort of minigame with a three-stage process, including the sorting out of different but similar items from a pile. The first sister was very good at that game because she would park between the first two waypoints and sort out stuff for both of them at once, or something like that.
  • Editor: Aurin are a bunny-like player character race from Wildstar.
Apr 17 2017
  • There was some sort of a game or competition judging thing based on houses or property owned. Ownership was based on the ArcheAge style of plots, with little clusters of them through the land, and we were at a plot in a neighbourhood at the top of a hill where the community was dying due to a lack of population but the current owners were trying to revitalize it.
  • There were sporting events, including Concurrent Soccer, which was a community league where the big-named teams from the EPL were managed by regular people and played each other, as well as ice hockey, and one other sport.
  • Finally, I had a meeting with Ronnie where we discussed all that had happened in the long weekend, but it turned out that Nuno was involved in a driving incident three years ago and I had a “flashback” where I was a lady driving a car behind Nuno and his brother, and they were fighting for control of the car, as it swerved from lane to lane and dinged the central road fence once or twice as they “drove” toward one of their houses.
Apr 23 2017
  • There were 3 of us together in our ‘house’. Objects around us caused lightning to strike from the heavens onto the land nearby when we touched, struck, or did something to them, and there were ways to create perpetual lightning strikes down on the same spot over and over.
Apr 24 2017
  • Many males in the world were subjugated, and enslaved or killed, especially if they were a visible minority or still lived with their grandmother, the latter because it made them look feminine.
  • I am unsure if females were subjugated in general as well, or if they were the oppressors, but there was an oppressor “group” and we were freedom fighters fighting against these oppressors.
  • I was female in this dream, and I was running away with another girl to a hideout that we had, which was accessible from the second level of a building by a bunch of platforms stretching across mid-air.
  • Enslaved male minions were sent to try to stop us as we ascended through the building, there were too many respawns for us to keep killing but my partner stunned them all with some sort of concussion bomb that she had and we ran onwards.
  • Past a certain point, the escape turned into a stealth mission and we could see the patrols below us as we crossed ledges and planks toward our goal and climbed into a hole in the wall.

  • This dream was a “murder mystery” – but I apparently had had this dream before so I knew who did it long before the plot concluded. The culprit was a bank robber who needed to make a phone call from a particular phone at a particular restaurant seat in order to collect his spoils, but he was also my ex, who I had dated in the ingame world in the past and thus knew all his sordid secrets, so I alerted a passing policeman and convinced them to wait for him.
  • There were lots of other random unconnected plot points around too, like a diplomat/spy for medusas had an agent trying to kill a diplomat head of state visiting a small distant palace controlled by the medusas. I convinced him that he had the wrong target and the medusas were the actual villains, he then contacted the agent who was in the middle of eating a pile of food for dinner alone in a hall of some kind. The agent listened to the call from the diplomat, hung up, grimly took a few more bites of the food, and turned into stone.

  • I was playing a co-op card game with two guys who seemed really awkward around me. In the card game, Earth had been taken over by aliens and we were trying to reach the planet – there were five layers of alien ship cards surrounding Earth and several other buffer layers of space in between, and everyone also had a hand of playable cards and a deck to draw from. Our aim was to draw enough weapons, resources etc to bust through the five layers of alien cards to get back to Earth. Obsidian was a big resource and both the cards in our hands and the ones on the table would reward you with them. In the end we destroyed every single card to farm the aliens for experience points (some columns were destroyed with lasers and such) before winning the game.
  • I was playing this while on a couch in some sort of open rest area. At some point after the game I had to go up to the front stage area together with a hockey coach as two people brought out a wooden log funeral pyre hanging on a stick, and the hockey coach gave a eulogy to whoever the fallen player was. I was just up there as the token girl to look good for the cameras, I had no idea who the person was or what had happened. But it seemed like I had volunteered for the role as the coach went up.
  • There were also lots of the “usual” common side themes in my dreams, like bus and train rides, grocery shopping at the faraway mall, hoping I’d see my overseas primary school friends again, etc. I had to take a train ride and walked through the train hoping to see some of those friends but didn’t see them.

  • I was farming mobs or looking for keys in enemy territory in an ArcheAge-like game outside a dungeon on enemy land, and two nearby enemy players were hunting me. But I had a stealth skill that gave me invisibility on a short cooldown, and I kept on popping in and out of stealth behind a pillar or obstacle just behind them to refresh my cooldown on the stealth skill, and avoiding them while they searched ineffectively for me.
  • Later on, I was with either Kel or an unnamed friend of mine, and the both of us had magical powers (or maybe MMO skills). We drove a car with strange folding seats to go visit Jon in a hostel-like building for his birthday. We passed several MMO zones on the way in our car and had other people come from all over the map, some of whom we recognised, some of whom we did not. Tigey and several other plushies were there. I had forgotten his birthday so I borrowed a laptop to buy him some Steam games before I went up to his room.
  • On the way back, we passed by several mob spawns which one of the other visitors claimed had a broken loot table and was dropping pets and stuff from another zone.
  • We then went on our way to visit either my sister’s friend or my friend’s sister, who lived in a high-rise building. This then became a looping dream, that somehow always ended up with me stalling for time and then running into the elevator first, going up myself and stranding my sister or friend below, and then charming the sister or friend like a dashing rogue and asking futilely for her help, and trying to hide in her room before the sister or friend arrived with magical authorities to hunt me down and punish me.
  • One time the hiding spot I tried involved dangling off a ledge outside the bedroom window with only my fingers visible, and another time I tried to hide underneath the mattress of the upper bunk on the double decker bed. Neither attempt worked particularly well.
Apr 30 2017
  • We were trying to locate an object or location in the back passages of a building of some kind. It was an orange dot near us on the game minimap that we could see, however we circled around the location of where the dot should have been and could not find a way to it, it was as though it was stuck in the wall. We even checked the washrooms to make sure the item was not in there. Both the male and female washrooms had wet floors with a faint scent of disinfectant from when the last time the cleaners came through, and there were rats in the far corners.

  • Near the end of the dream, I was trying to help someone find a government building that had recurred in other dreams in the past, to get some sort of permit or something that he needed. We had a map, but the building was unmarked on it. The building was in the northeast quadrant of the city, next to a building shaped like and named after a soft drink, as well as a bus stop that went right to the Edmonton International Airport. East and north of the cluster of buildings was a long north-south covered pedestrian road/path, with market stalls selling all sorts of goods on either side of the road.
May 03 2017
  • I tried to help Jon find his missing spare key in his room, to no avail. We then went to the bathroom to look, and we found that Dad had left little, grape-sized grenades all over the floor. I talked to him but he refused to pick them up and store them somewhere else. I then secured permission from Mom to throw them and all his other military junk out when he wasn’t looking.
May 04 2017
  • This dream involved a narrated detective mystery plotline. It was chapter-based, though the specific details are lost.
  • Below the narrator’s building was an underground computer forensics lab where a team of people were doing research, and where I could see old cutscenes that I had unlocked.
  • At one point, three of us swam across a small ocean to try to deliver a trade pack into a depot in enemy territory, but were captured by the soldiers at our destination. We had two more allies come in late to try to rescue us but they didn’t manage to.
    – There was also a scene with a hockey game going on where the opposing team had one person suspended, so they played with no goalie and we scored a goal from our own end into the empty net.
May 05 2017
  • Our workplace had a money shortage, and Ronnie showed us an empty wallet as proof. To make up for it, we were told we had to work on short jobs and commissions from a given list, in addition to our usual work, to make money to pay for ourselves.
  • I had set up a dentist appointment but missed it due to work, and due to sitting down to chat to Ronnie about my grievances with the above issue.
May 07 2017
  • My partner and I were detectives, trying to solve weird crimes. in the last unsolved case, we were investigating a fire at some sort of factory, where vehicles were set on fire using bananas doused in some flammable liquid. I hypothesized it was linked to a serial killer that we had talked about earlier in our last case, who used fruits to poison people, but we decided it probably wasn’t him.
  • My partner thought it had to do with people who collected gruesome murder weapons, so she put out a query to her assistant to ask around online from the people who collected grisly murder weapons. One of the people replied back and said no, it wasn’t them, but thank you for the idea. Oops.
  • In a previous case, we were flying about another factory building or complex trying to avoid the owners and guards of the complex, looking for something illegal or perhaps rescuing someone. We were peeking through keyholes and around corners and such. The complex had a train station attached to it and that was how we eventually escaped.
May 08 2017
  • There was a gathering and a celebration at a castle of some kind, everyone was in a festive mood. The game world had also just launched a new zone with some new land ArcheAge-style plots of land to claim, and I put a few farms down in 16×16 squares. The TV show at a bar reviewed a the banning of a cheater from many years ago in a League of Legends type game, and one of the game devs admitted he shouldn’t have been banned because he was never caught cheating. This was a scandalous thing to say.
May 11 2017
  • I had an ArcheAge-related dream, involving my current guild, people from the guild, and ArcheAge-specific activities. There was an overarching plot lasting multiple in-game days that left me feeling sad, but I don’t remember the details.
May 12 2017
  • There was a survival game involving loot in toilets, bosses to fight, music bands playing at the bottom of stairs I needed to get up, and a village frozen in time where we had to clear away blocks and restore buildings and find people that were frozen in time. The blacksmith’s son from 80 years ago now was the blacksmith of the village, his dad had inadvertantly doomed the previous village. There was a psycho woman at a table who tried to steal my D&D sourcebooks, which I was going to donate to a bookstore in the village for their collection.
May 15 2017
  • I remember wandering around the corridors of a locked building at night.
  • Later, I was trying to get a trade pack to Sanddeep, a zone in ArcheAge, through a Venice-like area, and there were two water routes into the area. There was a woman who just wanted to test the combat in the game at the entrance to one of them, and a crazed-looking man guarding the other one. I hung out by a cafe of some sort until a friend came and drove me there on his boat.
May 16 2017
  • I found, in a video, an ARG that when solved would let me become a moderator of a Discord channel. The current mod had posted a “boring” video of him testing out some audio and tv stuff, and right at the front of the video he held up a number of papers that told me a pin number to enter to access the next puzzle. Something like 576 or 675.
  • The 2nd puzzle was a “Tournament of the Towns” math quiz from many years ago, but the quiz booklet was already filled in with terrible handwriting, and even marked and scored already. It looked confusing at first, but upon closer inspection there were two sets of handwriting, the original quiz participant, and then the marker who annotated comments on top of that. There were weird out of place words, and several serial numbers, and some annotated comments that said to take note of this or that, but there was no immediate obvious clue as to what the answer were.
  • The current moderator had posted, without context, the math puzzle on a games sub-channel of the Discord server, but was surprised that people found the prompt to put in answers for the 2nd part. However he hinted that no one else but me had found the first part anyway so the rubbish answers they were putting in (like “aaaaaaaa”) were of no use.
May 17 2017
  • I dreamt I was taking a holiday to fly to the Philippines to watch a hockey series. Canada in particular had blown out some team 7-0 or 7-1 in the first game and I wanted to visit and watch the later games. I had to bring Dad along on the trip and it was poorly organised, I wasn’t sure which city I was flying to and he only knew about the trip a day in advance thanks to Mom telling him. She also asked me to give her scans of my ID cards for emergency. Dad also wanted to visit Indonesia, which I said we would probably be able to fit in, but we decided there was no reason to visit Malaysia.
  • Even though Canada won, Sidney Crosby was being called out by the commentators even in the 7-1 game for weak play, especially when someone passed him the puck from behind the net, he shot it over and past the net, and raised his arms for a second in celebration because he thought it had gone in. Apparently he should have “played deeper”.
  • When we arrived in the Philippines, the scene shifted to the reason why I had to bring Dad along – for protection and because he spoke a bit of Malay. The camera pulled back to show him, as an older male figure, accompanying me, as a female in her prime, and another young girl somewhere between 5 to 10 years old in age, who wasn’t otherwise defined or seen in the dream, sort of as a chaperone. We travelled to some run-down building or hut in a small village and Dad tentatively approached two men standing at the entrance to try to engage them in friendly conversation, but I “knew” that they were bad, Dad just didn’t realise that because his Malay wasn’t up to snuff or something.
  • We must have been kidnapped, for the scene then shifted and I was kneeling naked in the middle of a small road, alongside a larger main road. Each of my wrists was tied to a knee and my legs were spread, I was unable to close my knees or sit down and I was in pain from kneeling down on the rocky road for a long time in the sun. I was begging passersby to help me, but no one stopped, and an older woman even pointed a phone at me to take a picture, then hesitated as though she was thinking about making a call, but scurried off instead.
  • Another older woman eventually did stop to try to help after more hesitation, and as she started to make the call, I noticed that sitting down behind her and watching my plight was a man in sunglasses holding an umbrella, my kidnapper. The umbrella was a concealed gun, which he raised slowly to point at the woman’s back, and when I saw that I yelled at her to put the phone down and not worry about me. She looked confused but did so.
  • The kidnapper then lowered the gun but walked over anyway and forced the older woman to kneel down, though she was still clothed. He then glared over angrily at me as he thought I had took the opportunity to sit down and relieve some of the pain, but I hadn’t. He then started railing against women in general, then circled me and told me he had enjoyed having sex with me, but because his really long cock had a “knob 21” condition, when he pushed in all the way into me he could not quite fill me due to the shape and how one of his ribs would bump up against my opening or something. He did say he enjoyed the sex and that even though he couldn’t fill me completely, because there was a gap between the bulging tip of his manhood and my cervical walls, it felt like the cool chill of a subway tunnel. A couple passersby oohed with comments like “So that’s what sex feels like” as I blushed in embarrassment.
May 18 2017
  • There was a competition to stay underwater for as long as I can and try to find and assemble flippers, head gear, and so on that would help me breathe underwater at the same time. There were other things like food that could be found too. Unfortunately, during my turn, some sort of water drainage valve or pipe broke and the game just detected me as managing to “stay underwater” indefinitely because all the water below a certain level had drained away. The organizer was pissed when he finally realised it, but the entire system was so complex that I had no idea that the water draining was not meant to be part of the competition. He gave me one of the two prizes for placing in the top two spots anyway.
May 19 2017
  • I had ArcheAge-related dreams again. I helped summon and charm a large, round, troll-like creature that could throw rocks at enemies. Someone bought a pair of black wings that cost $40 from the item shop for my character as a gift.
May 21 2017
  • I was playing an MMO that was a mix between DDO, LotRO, Warhammer Online, ArcheAge, and possibly others. I was a healer grinding a subzone within a PvP zone, with a tank friend, and I was reminiscing about how the subzone used to be full of elites but now had been nerfed to signature mobs only, which ranked between normal mobs and elite mobs in difficulty. I had apparently levelled at least two healer characters through there in the past, and had to labour to find groups that would take them along, and then even take time off work and postpone other things to be able to take advantage of those group.
  • There was something about trading shouted messages with players from the other faction in the PvP zone, and suggesting that our two sides swapped home bases as our base was closer to their spawn and vice versa.
  • The zones in the game were from Warhammer Online, I remember noting that I hadn’t gone to the Tier 2 human zone yet and wanted to do so for exploration.
  • Editor: In Warhammer Online, these zones were Ostland and Troll Country, but they had different names in my dream.
  • In “real life” I was playing this MMO at a table across from a South American person who had tons of graphical issues, and while he didn’t outright ask, he was obviously hinting and hoping that I’d help him fix his machine so he could play. From the symptoms I knew it was a hardware issue that I couldn’t help with though, so I didn’t offer.
  • There were also one or two kids or young people struck by a certain malady so they either couldn’t say something or recall something, but like them I don’t recall exactly what. I was trying to help them in some capacity or other.
May 26 2017
  • There was a fire spreading slowly over a bed and around a house, in really small chunks at a time as previous chunks that were on fire extinguished itself. But we still couldn’t put the fire out entirely.
  • I was driving a vehicle and there were some sort of illegal undertones with the activity that I was doing, but I don’t recall what. I did eventually take part in a vehicle race along some city roads but lost very badly because I didn’t figure out how to upgrade my car with parts found around the city.
May 28 2017
  • I stole a boat from enemy players in ArcheAge and went fishing overnight on it with a friend. It never did despawn, which we realised afterwards, which implies that the owner of the boat had to have swam to us and stealthed nearby, watching us, for the entire night, because otherwise the mechanics dictate that a boat that was too far away from its owner despawns in 10 minutes.
  • The Toronto Blue Jays had won their division with 3 games and the All-Star game left to go, but one of the players burst into tears in the middle of the current game after someone whispered into his ear that some previous owner or player had died. Still he grimly went back out to bat. It was 0-0 in the top of the 12th.
  • I tried to adjust the music volume of my Google Play app from my phone as it was too loud, but none of the controls I tried were working.

June 2017

  • This dream involved a huge dance party for all the school grades at my school. It was being held at someone’s house. It was raining outside, off and on, as I arrived.
  • You needed an invitation that was basically a written essay to enter, but not everyone who arrived had one. I was afraid mine would get wet so I wrote out my invitation by hand. So did Ronnie. One of our friends didn’t get an invitation, so we chatted with him from inside the party while he remained outside.
  • At the end of the day, we learnt that they didn’t actually take the invitation/essay from the attendees, just checked it over. The hosts, one adult female and one adult male, even talked about this flaw in the system. So I offered mine to the friend to copy.
  • While there, I did some prep work for our D&D workplace game. Other people were doing things like taking family reunion photos.
  • Later on, there was an overhead-view car race to escape town in time after the party had ended. There were cars trying to stop us, and later on there was one car that we had to try to obstruct, as we had to get out of town before it left town. Instead of doing that via the obstruction method though, which was the “normal” ending, we took a semi-hidden road detour that got us out of town via another exit.
  • Editor: The D&D workplace game refers to a game that Johannes was running in real life that involved some of my teammates as players.
Jun 02 2017
  • There were two of us living in an apartment, plus a lady and someone else (or a pet?) who were our neighbours. Our front doors were next to each other and there was a glass wall separating our two apartments. Despite that, there was not much of a view, we could see her entryway and some stairs up but that was about it. There was an adjoining door in the glass wall to access each other’s apartment, but both sides needed to press a button at the same time to open it.
  • For some reason or other, we may have just moved in or were hiding as fugitives of some sort, and there were people prank-calling 911 with our intercoms or house buttons, which did nothing but created some sort of buzzing on our intercoms. We used the glass door to communicate with the lady neighbour.
  • We had some sort of insight power that helped us determine this, and our neighbour somehow determined that they were also responsible for some sort of mixup to do with Margaret Lackey and a website owned in our neighbour’s name. She also said that due to that, every parcel she sent out was a risk now because she had to start by sending it with the wrong address and inform the central post office to change it, but they would only sometimes correct it.
  • Editor: Margaret Lackey would be a portmanteau of two fantasy author names, Mercedes Lackey for sure, and probably Margaret Weis.
Jun 04 2017
  • There were two opposing “advertising” teams trying to achieve certain points/objectives. There were different rounds, and the teams included regular humans, titans/giants, as well as some female leader-type friends, one of whom one tried to cheat and was caught and exposed by our sister team at work, as it said they had done all their courses or something on the very last evening to end up with more points than their legit friend, which they were not allowed to do.
  • A titan then chased this friend down through the area/house and she had to lean against a bulging door to stop it from catching her.
  • Later on, there was a flood and electrical discharges in the water in our house, along with a connected doctor’s office and other rooms in buildings. An entire family was unconscious, and I dragged them out to safety and then asked the doctors if they were fine. They were. A patient at the doctor’s lost their pet cat though. I inquired where our pet cat was but we had given away the chocolate cat to another clinic (apparently they had originally given it to us) a dream or two ago.
  • Snippet: There was also something about a talk show, unsure what exactly.
  • Snippet: Also, Dad was leaving for a multi day business trip right after he recovered, Mom was enraged at me when I put air quotes around business trip and came over to hit me.
Jun 07 2017
  • There was some sort of weird adult “fountain quest” game where we had to perform some points for tasks while or between visiting a set of fountains, or pay a penalty of some kind (like dousing various parts of your body/clothes in the fountain and then moving to the next one) if you ran out of time for each task. To eventually “win” the game you had to mail the creator a large fish in a box.
  • There was also a sort of good society vs evil society thing going on, the evil ones may have been vampires or something similar. This involved themes of mind control and we had to physically restrain some friends sometimes to save them. Conversely, there were also ways to pretend to be affected and tricking the evil vampires.
  • I had a quest on a piece of paper that involved doing something with others to earn $40, which apparently was a lot of money in the world, but I had no one to do it with.
  • I also met the nurse for my surgery and was given the date for my final surgery – Jul 30. I asked if we could push it back to something more reasonable, like in November. I saw her calendar that she scribbled dates in.
  • Editor: At this time, I was arranging for a date for my vaginoplasty surgery in real life. It did end up being in November 2017 in the end.
Jun 08 2017
  • I was in an MMO world where public emotes were locked behind levelling or gathering materials to unlock something, so people created custom channels to roleplay in. Roleplay matchups were done using a ‘wheel’ ui screen of like 20 cards (more optional) where you could list pictures of things you liked or disliked.
  • I visited some guy in his cave/house but thought he was an NPC until I left and he sent a tell to me saying how nice it was to hang out, how he had been gone so long that his family channel had gone from green (active) to white (no recent chat) without ever reaching level 3 (or 3 players in it or something), and to stop by again sometime.
  • Snippet: I remember playing Chinese Chess with two adjoining boards glued together. Then I had a power outage ‘in real life’ in the dream but outside of the MMO, and was in a room with all my family being annoyed at the power outage.
Jun 09 2017
  • Someone at work had her new phone stolen along with one other item. We could wipe it remotely but could not locate it using any of the built-in tools. Some states had an auto-wipe policy for lost phones when it crossed state borders, so we were trying to discover if it had been wiped or not and hope to narrow down where it could be by that.
  • Eventually, I found that because she had sent me one message with it before it was filched, I was eventually able to trace it down. I found out the item was in possession of some solo male hiker not far from Portland, Oregon.
  • I told everyone and convinced two or three other people (from a mix of my workplace teammates and Discord) to try to retrieve it. He had an accomplice woman who used to work for the company, but she blew up and died on some mines that he had set. Belatedly she remembered that he hated the executives of the company and she was related to them.
  • We took an evening flight down to Portland, Oregon. I forgot to pack anything in my backpack, no change of clothes, no torch, etc, but oh well. We found out from the minimap that Portland was a perfect square, and there were little rectangular strips of nature in the four cardinal directions away from the city. We played a small minigame and found out the thief was hiking/camping overnight down in the strip south of the city.
  • Portland was also under a two week vacation period, and nearly every shop was closed and many people were gone from the city altogether because of some holiday or other that was taking place. We visited the Canadian embassy and met Lejjy and his wife there. He looked very different from how I remembered him. There was also some person in a business suit just outside the embassy who was selling cake.
  • Lejjy had a box full of unused Air Canada scratch-and-win lottery scratchcards that he bemoaned were useless. He scratched one and showed us – he had won $39 and change. I jokingly told him that was enough to check in a bag with Air Canada. Congrats!
  • We plotted different scenarios of how we were going to retrieve the watch. Most involved sneaking up to where he was camping, waiting for him to fall asleep, then stealing his backpack, trying to quietly detach the watch from his hand, punching him unconscious and taking it, or pinning him down with all of us.
  • But I woke up soon after, before we could resolve the heroic attempt to retrieve the watch.
Jun 10 2017
  • Grandpa owned an old building of some sort that he turned into a ship museum. The outside of the museum was decorated like the best sailing ship there was, but he refused to let the people doing the renovations redecorate the indoors. Because of that, an old exit had to be removed and sealed over from the outside, and inside decorations or displays were put up, including over where that door used to be. But it collapsed because there was no wall backing for it.
  • I do remember looking out my “house” window and seeing a car dealership just downstairs and outside. There was a nice night-sky cityscape visible from my window.
  • There was a 3 versus 3 or 4 versus 4 deathmatch game in a supermarket where we tried to murder/stab each other but it eventually broke down into chatting with each other.
  • One of my “classmates” was a giant guy without hands that I had helped rescue from his house in some long-ago disaster much earlier in the dream.
  • There was some kind of science experiment held in class where kids and classmates were doing different exercises, like jumping on a mat with many circles on it or jumping from one side of a pyramid exercise mat to the other side. Vastly different times were recorded for the exercises, some were much better at one exercise versus the other, and that was supposed to prove something.
Jun 11 2017
  • We found a cheat url in a game suspiciously similar to ArcheAge, by browsing a webpage that had suspicious info on it and looking at the URL they used to get the data. That let us see how many trade packs were in each of the three main trading posts and what they still needed to tier up. The north one required larder packs, while the mid and south ones required fertilizer packs.
  • The url popped up a nice panel that among other things, also let us read people’s emails, see what packs people were turning in in real time, etc. There was also a custom page for collected pictures of people’s pet cats, and we looked at that too.
  • We “taught” the page to a class of four or five people who were guildmates, who cringed at how much info was available. We predicted that this exploit would be fixed soon.
  • Editor: Larder packs and fertilizer packs were two types of trade packs that could be transported from a trading post in one location to another in ArcheAge.
Jun 13 2017
  • I was homeless or got kicked out of my old home for some reason or other. I did some chores for a lady and got to stay at her place for a night. My dream got really jumbled from here, as some bad people visited her at night, and it spawned an epic tale involving:
  • A kraken, and how I avoided impending death in its jaws by gathering people up and escaping from a room.
  • Zombies digging up soil in front of a prison/dungeon (the zombies were normally kept in the basement as prisoners) to help us unearth some treasure.
  • Planes that we controlled being shot down by people I know in some sort of minigame. I and someone else had to fly past them to continue our quest.
  • A collapsing office complex, caused by the owner, who eventually ended up in jail for embezzlement/fraud.
  • Going out for lunch with the family.
  • Matt asking me in front of the zombie prison if I had seen his blue pants while we were tangled with the kraken. He had been on a ship that got chewed up by it in the past.
Jun 14 2017
  • There was a scene at school, where during lunch Kim and a few others went down to the courtyard to a stone bench to have lunch, while Johannes and I and a few others stayed upstairs. We ended up playing some sort of card game.
  • After lunch was a sort of VR security class, where they were demoing security of VR using my account and showed how no one else logged in would be able to see/use anything. The VR device looked like one of those oversized mice where my hands had to hold the mouse with my hand sideways (four fingers on top of each other and cupping the mouse as though it were a cup) to use.
  • There were also other presentations going on, and Tyler was there complaining about some sort of Matrix tracking software but he was really embarrassed at something and mumbled his whole way through after being told to speak louder 3 times. No one could hear anything but apparently out of all 8 or 10 people he spoke to I was the only one that tried to give him some help on it.
  • His supervising professors all used the Matrix software and were administrators for the program because they were advisory board members, but they didn’t really know how to use it well, and he never actually got to talk/study with them much as all their time was tied up in the board and program.
  • I had to show Angie how to use a zip program, someone named Lisa (not the one from our shared high school) had given her a 700 mb file with zipped videos of recorded chess matches between their girls club. I saw her chess moves in her current game, being played in a locked dorm room with 4 people playing 2 separate games, and it involved marching all her tiles up 1 square so her last row was blank.
  • After that I ran into our group and some others leaving the building for lunch (again). I was miffed they didn’t tell me but apparently they did send me a Hangouts chat, I just forgot to bring my phone to Angie‘s room.
  • I ran up to grab my cat purse and ran into a group of old ladies about to use our classroom for lunch. They were pointing at and commenting at things we had left written on the board.
  • I ran to the canteen where my group was already ordering lunch at. I went to the Indian store and bought some nasi briyani. They cooked it on the spot. Ther were other dishes that I could see, especially curry ones. The store next to us was some sort of Malay cuisine store.
  • After ordering, I ran into an old acquaintance from my time in the Scouts. He knowingly complimented me for my transition, something that definitely happened quite a long time after we had last met each other. He then mentioned he was in a job that gave him a lot of info but required a lot of confidentiality. He wouldn’t tell me what it was. I think I noticed that ‘he’ was also perhaps in an early stage of transition.
  • I went to the canteen table and sat beside Ronnie while waiting for them to cook. I told Ronnie about it and then wondered about looking him up once we got back to class after lunch. Ronnie said he liked to eat enough to set himself at around 10% past full, though anything 1% or higher was great, but if he ate over 26% past full he would gain weight immediately. I said I had no such issues and could eat 50% past full just fine.
  • When they called me to get my food they butchered my name to something starting with “Ein” or something. I had no idea if it was me but no one else claimed the food and it was the dish I had ordered so I went to grab it anyway. There was a bowl of rice and chicken, and a second half-empty bowl of some sort of soup thing. Condiments included a pile of sliced onions which I added to the rice, and some cabbage soup which I added to the half-empty bowl.

  • I went on a vacation with family and friends to California. We went to/passed a town named Construction. We had a spacious personal tour guide van with 3 other friends + the tour guide and driver in it. While in the van, we had some discussion about art between the tour guide and the other three people in the van, and some discussion about animals/wildlife and how they had migrated away from California even though it was summer there.
  • We passed by a town with some sort of a magic shop owned by some fantasy folk hero. The magic shop was set up where three magical ley lines met and also by waterfalls/springs of bright blue liquid oxygen which could be processed into actual oxygen, which was going into short supply all over the world. Because of the location he could acquire and sell lots of interesting and unique items. We didn’t go in but the tour guide told us he could have been and was asked to be mayor or president or something, but declined, and everyone could see why when they realised that he would have to give up the shop and location to do that.
  • The tour company skimped on giving us free meals by making sure they got back right at 8pm when we were supposed to get scheduled meals from the company. I met mother at an “east meets west” fancy cuisine restaurant, although the menu only had drinks available and everything else greyed out while we were still in the van. They had several sugar cane dishes that I supposedly recognized from the past — it was a version of a Singapore drink, turned into a fancy dish in my dream.
  • Also, I was making plans to visit Mount Rushmore.
  • We were moving crates or ArcheAge-like trade packs at some point, on a push trolley, and stopped in a toilet to divvy them up. They were marked by D&D classes – rogue, ranger, etc. We discussed adding some things to our workplace D&D character sheets.
Jun 16 2017
  • I was playing some sort of game that was the prequel to 4 different gaming series – Mount & Blade, Borderlands, and two others. This was being played at a desolate train station in the past and broadcast up on the train station screen. There were 4 or 5 people at the station, including a judge/mayor type person, and a passenger whom would eventually become the protagonist.
  • The story showed him being bored and first discovering how to get over to the “high side of the map” – the AI’s side, and the east side of the map using an overhead view, to be able to journey on past the train station. He did this by hopping onto a trolley that just had a plant on it, which was coming down the tracks to the station, west to east. Once the plant/trolley reached the station, he used the momentum and height to jump the eastern gate.
  • We went to a coin (possibly called glim) and item giveaway from an announcer on a hall stage to 30 audience members. They lined up in rows and he tossed coins and boxes out. Someone (who may have been named Vincent, but was not anyone I knew) got a really nice item from a box, and then the first ever air regeneration ring that dropped from the game a few boxes later.
  • I was asked to keep score on the board on who acquired what, coin and item wise.
  • Editor: Glim would have been the currency in an MMO called Trove.
Jun 17 2017
  • I was part of a group of five friends going out together, and we had five different colours, one tied to each of us, which also tied in to some sort of game and also weird things like coloured locks in the world.
  • The night before, we had tried going into a mall after hours, and the front door of the mall needed 3 colours to open. 3 of us were already in the mall, in the basement where we had some sort of den, and the other two eventually found their way in when someone passing by let them in or something. We told them they could have just called down to us. The next night we went together as a group from the start so no one would be stuck outside again.
  • All this was tied in somehow to trying to schedule a time when we were all free to play a game, much like my Discord group’s scheduling woes IRL.
  • Separately, there was some sort of interrogation scene where a female protagonist and her partner were trying to interrogate a prisoner. The guy was chained to the wall and the protagonist was using electric shocks on him to try and find out something, but as some sort of safety protocol against overdoing it, she had also spiritually linked in to him (his manhood, in particular) so she could feel the shocks too whenever she triggered them. She secretly enjoyed it a little too much though.
  • I learnt that the fireworks last night (IRL) were due to a nearby music concert of some kind. Then it started snowing and someone that was trying to show off how smart he was wondered if that meant that the Oilers were back in the playoffs.
Jun 18 2017
  • I randomly saw Huihan while in Thailand of all places. I asked for permission to hug her (she said yes), then asked if anyone else we knew had moved here with her. She said no and commented that everyone had scattered to the seven winds after finishing school.
  • Before and after meeting her, I and some friends were doing some sort of minigame which involved stealthing around packs of mobs, in a multi-levelled arena that included a ruined camp full of gnolls and goblins, a river, a couple of elevators, crafting quests that involved planting seeds, and other things. The “owners” of the game had just shut down part of a level of the minigame and I wasn’t too happy about it.
  • At some point the leader of the gnolls/goblins wasn’t too happy about his punching bag role and was demonstrating what sort of traps he could lay to try to ward off two invaders, but they were pretty terrible, they were basically temporary crowd control traps that could not stop the players from beating him up once the crowd control ended.
Jun 19 2017
  • I had a dream that involved needing to unlock and enter a house to progress in a quest. The house had a northern and southern entrance on the west wall that had to be opened initially, then a northern and southern entrance on the east wall that could then be unlocked.
  • This was a stealth-based puzzle-solving game, but I also had a sense of being a small fish in a much bigger pond. There may also have been some sort of point system where I had to get a certain amount of points to defeat monsters. Among other powers, I had infravision, and whilst outside the balcony windows, I could toggle it on and see huge monsters fighting in the distance to the south — terrible Tyrannosaurus rex-type monsters and Beast-type hulks.
  • The group I was with had to do the house quest after I had already figured out the locks, so the second time around I knew how to unlock and bypass them quickly. There was an elevator guarded by snakes after the part of the quest with the house. We chopped up the largest one and defeated each segment one by one, then I used a broom to swat the rest away. The rest had been melded together along with some nettle plants so they couldn’t move. Then I found out you could disable the snakes just by visiting some website.
  • Later on, I was level 19 in an MMO, and had just returned from work on Friday night so I was going to grind out a few levels. Jeremy had declared war on another guild with ours because a halfling village near them, Halfmoon, gave 9000 xp per halfling defeated or captured. The war was to be decided by how much NPC/PC killing and territory capture we could do to the other guild and vice versa. I was a rogue and cleric multiclass character and he suggested I concentrate on getting level 20, and then went over to the halfling village himself and slaughtered everything.
  • Later on, we had partially liberated Saruman‘s tower, and I had an amulet which when worn, gave me the option to run two commands, one to check the status of a hatch in his tower and one to open and close the hatch. To fully liberate the tower, we needed to have someone go into the hatch area and stay inside for 3 minutes with it open, however the hatch couldn’t be opened from the inside and led to some sort of molten place with really hot steam, with precious resources growing within. But if the hatch was closed, anyone inside would die quite quickly.
  • The danger was that the defeated Saruman had a caretaker who would check on the hatch “every now and then”, and the hatch itself was locked for part of the day as well and only unlocked in the late evening to early morning. So sending someone in for 3 minutes was very dangerous, even if the hatch could remain open.
  • But we won because I put on the amulet after returning on Friday evening, and immediately ran the text command to close the hatch instead of checking it first. The caretaker happened to be inside harvesting some material, and burnt to death. If I had ran the command to check first, he would probably have been alerted and been able to leave. It was a lucky move but was very effective.
  • Also, while levelling, I could have a party of 4, so I recruited 3 other npcs to go with me. One was a halfling who was upset that we called him by his name (Mame?) while trying to recruit him and he hated it, but I convinced him to stay because the recruitment attempt had been done under duress while in a battle with others and we were definitely usually nicer people than that.
Jun 20 2017
  • Matt was pregnant, which I found strange, but apparently it was because “his ingame character was different from his real life one” even though both of them were inside a dream and I’m not sure how that logic made any sense.
  • Four of us were being trained by someone similar to a character named Angel in his gym in Saints Row 3 to fight against enemies, except our lessons to start were to learn how to control telekinesis powers. The trainer wasn’t too impressed with us because we were tardy the first time and didn’t really understand some of his instructions. We ended up outside Southgate, playing a game of throwball with workmates and random non-magical people passing by, using trash cans as the goalposts, and with us using our powers to try to intercept and throw balls.
  • Later on, there was also a dream where we could all only roll or play existing elves in a game today, so we all rolled up elf characters. James was a trainer for the elves too and had left his training room keys behind downstairs. While everyone else rushed off to wait outside the door and not be late, I just followed him downstairs because the lesson wasn’t starting without him anyway.
  • We tried to troll the people waiting outside the door by saying some things about how we were going to detour and do other things, through a water pipe downstairs that led upstairs to the door area and that they would have been able to hear us through if they were paying attention, but they either didn’t hear or weren’t biting on our prank.
Jun 21 2017
  • Someone on my team was pregnant again (not sure who, not Matt this time, it was another girl but I’m the only girl on the team and it wasn’t me, so it wasn’t a real person). She wanted to skip playing DnD and instead play battleship during work hours.
  • The people on my team were secretly mad at other people and had issued ultimatums to each other, I was unaware of who or why though.
Jun 22 2017
  • I was on a trip with my family to South Korea, then to North Korea, then back to South Korea. There was some sort of ruin straddling the border that we stopped off while on the South Korean side of the island, on the way up to North Korea. Half of it was in South Korea, half in North Korea, so it was split up in two and also helped split up the two countries.
  • We took a coach of some kind up to North Korea, past broken, ruined streets. We scouted for and hunted some ArcheAge-style world mobs on the way. Our stuff was stored on the top of the coach, and I had to reach my hand out the window and up onto the roof to get things. I also found some sex toys up there – a dildo and some jingly nipple clamps at least.
  • Around it were rural farms and mountains. On the North Korean side of the ruins, there was a quaint little square farm with growing crops in the ruins. We stopped off at a bookstore in the airport, and the North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un was there.
  • I wanted to buy some books but was unsure if we were allowed. Dad was going to buy one anyway so I persuaded him to also add a couple books related to the ruins that I wanted. I didn’t have “Asian money” with me but told Dad I would pay him back later.
  • I decided to go talk to Kim Jong Un and ask him for permission to buy the books. He ended up being quite nice, especially once I told him I was Canadian, not American. I told him I wanted to read about both sides of the story when it came to the ruins – because otherwise usually victors wrote history and you only got one side of the tale.
  • I took the books back to the cashier, Dad paid for them using two credit cards, one wasn’t working but the other did. The cashier gave him 13 receipts.
  • We were flagged by a security guard while walking out the store after paying and had to show him what we had. The chubby security guy was apologetic, apparently a shipment of something had disappeared and he had to locate it or would be in trouble. He didn’t find anything wrong in the 13 receipts, though he did find some tiny weird text on one of the receipts that shouldn’t be there.
  • I wanted to leave and go eat something, so we left. Just outside the bookstore, in the airport, we saw an annoyed Caucasian lady dressed only in a shirt and panties, and her annoyed boyfriend. Apparently they had been in the lounge for a couple weeks as their plane had been delayed due to the North Korean authorities. We were worried we were going to end up like that.
  • They called the cashier up to talk to her. She apparently lived in a basement below a grate behind the counter. She also seemed innocent. One of the other female staff members talked about how the cashier girl was a new hire and was given a cup of exotic milk every day since being hired – every day so far it had been a different type of milk.
  • We had to stand through a long monologue by the Caucasians, then finally they let us go. On the coach back to South Korea, I realised I had forgotten to trade in Canadian money into Korean money back home to use as trip funds. Argh.
Jun 23 2017
  • There was a huge squad broken up into many different groups of 8 to 9 people, playing some sort of turn-based game. There was an eastern and western part of the map, and the aim was to do things and eventually assassinate some people and then commit suicide. The assassinations and suicides were done by mixing together vials of things like blood and various other things, which eventually made some kind of acid.
  • The party members who would be doing the suicide portion, ominously, had no portrait in the group summary.
  • Earlier there was some sort of stealth-based team shooter thing where I was hidden under a table while opponents roamed about, then one of the girls spotted me and jumped onto me, straddling me so I couldn’t escape. I gave up and conceded.
Jun 24 2017
  • Snippet: I went house shopping with Dad while trying to avoid enemies of some kind. There was a grid map and the houses for sale were all located next to each other like a showroom, mixed in together with cupboards and doors and things.
Jun 25 2017
  • My jumbled memories include grocery store shopping, where I went to order slices of pork from the butcher counter, then asked them if they had pork belly as well and they did not. I then was looking for a pound cake or something but could not find the cake section or aisle.
  • There was also a roguelike game where everyone else died right at the start and I had to progress slowly, but past the first wave there were no other monsters that spawned.
  • For the roguelike game, I swiped the road on my gaming device forward and backwards to move. I could see the entire map in 3D, and the roguelike road portion had very obvious left and right turns when for example we hit a zebra crossing or traffic light where we could turn off onto the pavement.
  • Near the end our entire block was doing home renovations, and the renovators were using the interconnected balconies to get from house to house instead of the front doors. There were 3 or 4 of them, and they were friendly with everyone and knew things about them, for example they knew that the neighbours had just gotten a new computer and were chatting with them about it. For me, they knew that I needed nice music to feel good about myself, so they played music even when they were working on my neighbour’s house next door before they got to us. I was leaving to go to work or something by the time they reached my house, though.
Jun 26 2017
  • There was a survival game involving a large group of people. Nak bought it thinking it was an action game but wryly commented about how it turned into a survival game partway through.
  • It involved a prison and both group and solitary confinement, and involved another team and trying to defeat them somehow. There was a points aspect where we had to both kill things and use objects (like a dancing pad) to earn said points. There were also elevators that not all of us could fit on at once. I went in the first group.
  • We also stopped off at a restaurant where you had to be locals belonging to some place in China or Malaysia to visit. It had a short name, which was also a prefix for some sort of food dish, something like Peking.
  • Then there was a scene near the finish line of a race where we swooped in and assassinated a number of the racers by shooting them Saints Row-style while we were driving by in some vehicles. Our group was confronted by another group after and we talked about it, saying that this was good practice in case we ever wanted to transfer from Landroval to Brandywine for real PvP, we needed to know how to do this type of thing.
  • I mentioned that as dead as Landroval seemed in terms of there not being many enemies, in ArcheAge we only really saw a red enemy player once every month or so.
Jun 27 2017
  • The dream involved some kind of day 1/day 2 team-based shooting game. I bought the game’s DLC between day 1 and 2 for our team to help defend something, even though there were very few players of the game in general.
  • Jeremy bought some noodles from Thai Express at some point and was disappointed at the amount of food they gave him. Matt was there too and may have helped himself to some of the food.
Jun 28 2017
  • Ronnie lived on the 5th floor of an apartment building, and his apartment was accessed by going up the right stairs. I lived on the 2nd floor (room 205), on the left side of the building.
  • We had a D&D game that Johannes was hosting in that 5th floor room around a table. I went down to the first floor using the right side stairs to get chips and other stuff (two near-empty bags and a third full bag) to bring up. Everyone from work was there.
  • The D&D game was a blur but basically we had fallen asleep and Johannes was narrating the dream for us to write down, I remember thinking as though it were a meta dream diary and I had forgotten the details but he was telling me what had happened and refreshing my memory.
  • We all had the same dream within my dream — an artifact, a mask of some sort, was lying against the wall that we were guarding. An evil priest who could teleport stole it, he had a short range teleport that left orange movement trails that he used to get in and then get away from us, a quick channeled medium range teleport that he used to bring him to a warp machine on the other end of the courtyard, and he then used that warp machine to perform a long range warp.
  • We all then awoke, separately, not long after. When I ‘woke up’ after the dream, I found myself alone but in the same room, in the 5th floor apartment, on the right side of the room. I started off downstairs. On the way down, on the 4th floor, a door was ajar, and a young woman was inside an apartment there, seated lengthwise on a couch reading a book with her back to the door.
  • Immediately after I entered, someone else tried to break in, and I tried pushing the door shut while he tried pushing the door open. The woman was concerned but continued reading without even looking up, she had to finish her book above all else for some reason.
  • We were at a deadlock for some time at the door, but then he started drawing or tapping on the door and three lines appeared in front of my eyes in what seemed like black marker ink but that appeared and disappeared as he tapped. A number was at the end of each of those lines, and if they incremented to a certain number (one was 300, another 100, etc) the door would be forced open.
  • After the numbers had increased more than halfway, I figured out I could tap on them with my elbow or finger to reduce the number as well. I did so. Once the numbers were back down to near 0, the intruder gave up and stopped pressing on the door. We exchanged niceties like polite rivals, and he then left. I closed the door.
  • Eventually the girl finished reading, got up and thanked me, then we exchanged details on which apartment I lived in and she gave me a cup of tea in a small styrofoam cup, prepared at the sink in her bathroom, which was right next to the couch and the front door.
  • Either everyone, or all the women in the building, had to collect $75 worth of loot. She tied together some napkins into a sturdy cloth rope so she could try to climb up and loot that room, but I told her that the room above hers was one that I had access to and there wasn’t anything left there.
  • I left and went downstairs to get to class. Outside it was the middle of winter, and there were random students walking around. A girl in a skirt hurried by because her legs were cold. I was still sipping the tea in the styrofoam cup.
  • Once the tea was done I realised I was still holding the cup and needed to dispose of it back in the woman’s room. I ran back into the building, whose entrance looked just like the entrance to my workplace building, and met the 4th floor girl in the lobby there. We again exchanged room information (this time she told me her room number, even though I had been in there already) and I gave her back the cup.
  • A recurring theme in the series of dreams, even right from the start, was a door in one of our communal rooms that led to outer space. Even though we all lived in different rooms, I and someone else (Satinel?) wanted to eventually have a hidey hole somewhere else in a similar sort of space where we could have a tent in a 2×2 unit of space and have doors to other rooms connected from it, and no one could access any of the other rooms without finding the main entrance first, so it would be super secure.
  • To that end, we saved our game at various points and tossed items, kids, and other NPCs out the doors leading to space at some point just to see what would happen with them. We then loaded the game and pretended nothing happened.
  • Johannes was away for a few days later on in the dream and left his stuff with HRHR was doing things with the stored items and that also involved the outer space area somehow.
  • Dad at some point was going to drive me somewhere and insisted on stopping at some mechanical shop along the way to “check on something”, which would delay me getting to my final destination by 15 minutes, although I would still be early. I knew someone, possibly Johannes on his holiday, was there too, and the way Dad phrased it made me suspicious that there was a surprise or something being built there, but I never found out what it was.
  • Shelley had a lab desk across from mine in a school room near a door that also led to space. She showed me some salad that she was making – she had sealable bags with different types of veggies that she would combine into a bowl, before putting briyani sauce all over it, and it was awesome even though I usually disliked salad. I told her that I would also like to try the recipe but would start by buying actual small bags of salad rather than separate veggies.
  • She mixed it all up in a blender, and I noticed that she had two blenders but only one power socket. She wasn’t allowed to use the one for the table left of hers even though the owner of that table was gone. My desk was sitting across from hers and facing her, and I plugged the end of her other blender into my power socket so that she could use it for now.
Jun 29 2017
  • There was some kind of large gathering hall with students and such in it. There were also multiple open bathroom/toilet stalls at the back of the hall, as well as a doorway leading to a separate bathroom area at the front. There was also a flower planter at the front of the hall, and I had brought a bouquet of red plastic tulips, so I stuck the tulips in it.
  • A music machine was being installed at the front of the hall, it was terrible but the audit person approved it anyway and posed for a picture in front of it listening to the music — but his headphones were connected to his own music player because the machine wasn’t working well. I asked for his email so I could write him a message asking him not to approve it.
  • People from my workplace featured prominently, although I do not remember how. Shows were also being performed up on stage.
  • A Donald Trump crew was up on stage at one point, playing catch against a cartoon cat and dog. The dog AFKed by his team bench, which also acted as a discard pile, while the cat danced around in the arena – none of the crew could catch the slippery cat who just ducked in and out of their arms. Only one or two of the crew could be on stage at any given time, and every 25 minutes they would just slump to the ground and the cat would win, and another set of one or two would replace the ones that left. Those that left would end up in a pyramidal pile of bodies by the dog, thus forming the discard pile.
  • The only one who had a bit of success catching the cat was the only girl on their crew, because the cat couldn’t resist her charms – she then tossed the cat at a pink wall after catching it but that wasn’t enough to defeat the cat. Some of the guys tried to build a water spraying machine to try to defeat the cat, but that was ineffective.
  • I was feeling ignored during the stage show, as people I were with, like Tyler, were being recognized and teased by the people on stage for various things but I never was. There were food stalls on stage at some point as well and I ordered Country-style Fried Noodles, a dish from Hoho’s.

July 2017

Jul 01 2017
  • There was a 2-storey square building with two sets of stairs outside on opposite sides of the house, allowing 2nd-level access from the ground floor on the outside. Each half of the building was a set of bathrooms, both upstairs and downstairs, one gender per side.
  • The entire bathroom building was under siege by a hidden tentacle monster, and we had to kill monsters both from the inside attacking outwards, and from the outside attacking inwards. The attacks were timed, every couple minutes, and everyone’s characters were class based and had HP pools and such.
  • Someone asked me to look up pictures they had found of people who transitioned on Google Images to see if that’s actually what transitioned people (or transgendered people with a certain condition?) looked like. Turns out the pictures they were looking at had people with a penis as a nose and were bare-chested with no breasts but with some kind of dark line carved below each nipple. I told them no, those were not transitioned people and that was due to something else.
Jul 05 2017
  • Snippet: There was something about getting my hair done or washed by someone I knew along with a couple other people, but also being on a turn-based timer for something. I don’t remember any other context.
Jul 06 2017
  • Someone I idolized was leading a small group of fighters in my dream world. He was still mostly a kid, but was the leader of the resistance against the rulers of the country.
  • This group had 4 or 5 people, also basically kids, that helped lead the resistance army. Two others had recently died. One of them was shot 19 times by snipers and attackers while hidden in foliage of a tree, though with his/her sacrifice they were able to retaliate and take out some other baddies.
  • They only learnt of the two deaths when the leader invoked a teleporter to get them to a central location and two of the teleporters (which could not be turned off and so contined to work regardless) were empty and unfilled.
  • The leader was soon taking interviews for people to replace some of the members of his group. Lots of people idolized him, to the point that some of the people (especially the girls) who applied were incapable of focusing in his presence or had some sort of ulterior motive for applying.
  • We went for lunch as a group of 3 at a hawker center, and I had control of two identical characters there somehow, for some reason involving a mix between split personalities and time travel. The leader wanted me to use a separate table but I ignored him and brought my food over to the same table as his anyway, sat down, and opened the newspaper to read while eating. My split personality also had its own ideas and also had bought a meal to eat at a separate table, so “I” ended up having two meals instead of one.
  • The scenes overall kept on shifting between the present and the past, with some events taking place in the “here and now”, and others with the same group of people some time ago in the same war.
  • I learned or figured out at some point that this was the V?ietnam War, I believe with an extra character between the V and the I, and an informant in the past timeline was killed by the enemy via bombing or shooting when he had vital info on who the leader of the evil group was and was on the way to tell our leader.
Jul 14 2017
  • There was an IAM project review with James and the team – I apparently put in a lot of stupid ideas into one sheet because I was reviewing it off of a book of some sort, it ended up with things like needing to accommodate sports stars and such.
  • In a later portion of the dream, there was a big housing/LRT/mall building area connected by an elevator. The bottom couple levels were an underground train station. One of the other levels was an open area with daily collectibles, one of which you had to hop down onto a rock dangerously to get. Another was by a snake in the grass or something.
  • The first day I got the dangerous item fine, the next day while jumping down the rocks I fell to the bottom and broke one of my characters so that his/her movement speed was damaged, s/he limped around, and s/he had a circular red wound. I tried to hide it from others by using my main avatar while s/he healed, as I could apparently swap my active character to a different one.
  • I used the elevator multiple times on different days. Overall multiple people were involved in this part of the dream, including people from my team at work, random kids, people from another train that had just arrived, and a girl who was getting off on the mall/shop level and went to fawn over some small keychain toys on sale because they were an integral part of her childhood.
  • There was a huge steampunkish city on the top of a cliff, and below was a barren broken red wasteland valley. A mechanical whale had thrown itself over the mountains and landed in the valley to die, very close to the city, and it had decayed and been reduced to a skeleton framework by the time I saw it. I was told it was the 5th time that week that a whale had gone there to die, and I posited that they were sacrificing themselves to try to figure out how to get to or destroy the city.
Jul 16 2017
  • The next GDQ had arrived, and I was speedrunning a fictional game in it called Nocturnal Sky, a game that people kept mixing up with Assault Android Cactus, even though it was a first person action/shooter instead of a top-down bullet hell.
  • The game had four acts, and I did not know the optimal route very well. Mostly the game involved moving through stages and completing objectives, but I knew that there were a few rare potions and some occasional glitchy spots, so I practiced act 3 and 4 to try to get a good time on those.
  • The game was also mirrored in the “real life” world somehow, and when I was practising it there were two girls on a bus or coach that was part of the level and I pretended not to be speedrunning it but took note of where a potion was hidden from their conversation. This was 1-2 days before the event.
  • On the day of the event itself, it was late at night and I had five friends with me, the only one I remember for sure being Jah, though possibly Tyler P from work was there as well. They were going to be my “couch”, commentators and helpers, but were there mostly for moral support, although I knew that if they had computers and laptops with them, then that would help me somehow too. The gaming hall was moderately packed, and there were people mingling around outside/downstairs too.
  • We were given a long table at the very back of a hall to set up at, and the camera pointed at us wasn’t wide enough to catch everyone sitting at the table. There were two people on one side of me and two on the other, and the possibly-Tyler person did not bring his laptop so he sat further off to the left, off-screen entirely.
  • There was some sort of issue with the setting up of the game itself. 2 hours were allocated for my run, and the first two acts were “straightforward”, thus why I didn’t practice it much, but I had to wait for a good 15-20 minutes due to setup issues and some other technical issue halfway through one of the acts before I could finish it.
  • An hour was gone after the first two acts, but I was still somewhat on time for the other two. However the hosts called a stop to my run due to the technical issues, and I was surprised at first, then mad, that they decided to abort my run when it wasn’t my fault. I went out to finish the other two chapters in the real world, in order to show that they could easily have been done in the remaining hour.
  • I remember some passersby during the mission, or on the way back, commenting that the games and overall event were too long and that the organizers should shorten everything.
  • On the way back to the hall after finishing the 3rd chapter’s objectives, I was given some optional objectives at the bottom of the elevators up where I could stop on the 5th floor and 7th floor (the gaming hall was on the 10th floor) to collect some money that other people owed the questgiver.
  • I started to do them but the first elevator bugged out, had no buttons on the inside, and went to a random destination in a neighbouring but connected building with me trapped inside. When the doors opened, there was a small area and narrow stairwell leading down and back to the elevator lobby which I used, dodging past apologetic movers.
  • I took one of the other elevators and it went up to the right floor this time. I decided not to do the sidequests as they were not necessary and would only waste more time, and I dumped my purse and a bunch of folded papers on the ground looking for some sort of warranty that would help me. I did not find what I was looking for by the time the elevator reached the 10th floor, so I picked up the papers, exited the elevators, and dumped them in the elevator lobby to look for the item again. This time I finally found it.
  • I then took the hallway to the conference hall. By that time, even with the little mishaps along the way, only 40 minutes of the remaining 1 hour had past, and I felt vindicated because the last chapter would easily take less than 20 minutes.
  • Back at the table at the back of the hall, they were filming a still shot of two of my friends sitting one behind the other and looking at the main screen up front, while the other two friends were moving off to the side, though it wasn’t clear what was happening at first as the photographers were sitting on a front bench at a similar table in front of ours, and then turned around to face us and the back of the hall.
  • I had to grab my stuff and then move it off to the side too in order to continue my speedrun, causing them to have to note that one shot needed to be edited after the shoot. I was slightly annoyed with them and they were slightly annoyed with me too.
Jul 17 2017
  • I was working from home and fielded a call from Daniel saying that someone in the executive leadership from the Students’ Union, but not of high enough rank to be a dean, director, or chair, and thus could not get authority to override access to the building, had driven a wagon to the 2nd floor of the building they worked in and needed help checking it in by today. The executive was asking us if we could just process him nonetheless.
Jul 18 2017
  • I went on some sort of trip to a South-East Asian country with friends and family. This somehow involved a speedrunning event, and different halls and mini-events that we visited. We travelled through a couple countries all the way south to the border of Australia and New Zealand.
  • There was a big semi-shaded open-air waterfall there at the border, and the sloping ground tapered off on either side of the waterfall like a sort of hourglass, with the center of the ground being the thinnest.
  • I told Mom the next day about that sight that I had seen, and even came back a few days later with a friend. This friend needed to hurry due to something to do with speedrun schedules, but there was an argument between two couples right at the border involving several 100-dollar bills, so she tried to intervene and play mediator to get the queue moving again.
  • Another day there was an event at a large hall, and there was a runner playing The Binding of Isaac. He was planning to do two runs, firstly a broken 2 minute run where he carefully shot at cards through walls to activate areas and boss rooms way in advance of when he was supposed to, and then fought them. However, due to the only room involving a lot of randomness treating him poorly, he ended up taking about 2m 30s for his run instead. His second run was supposed was to be a “proper” 30 minute run without glitches, but he never got to do it.
  • This was a popular speedrun, and the gaming hall was packed for the runs, with the room filled up from the back to the front, and there were people outside the hall on chairs watching a large projector screen too.
Jul 19 2017
  • We were in a hotel, and even though it was several hours before school started, we were showering and getting ready to go. I was there with siblings, some people from work, other strangers from school, and even some people who had been dropouts from school. We had booked off several rooms on the floor, and it had a vibe of a symposium or trip that we had travelled to.
  • Kel had laid out her toiletries in the shared bathroom outside, she said something about leaving her stuff there and then vanished. No one else could really use the shower until she returned.
  • The hotel staff then knocked on my door twice saying that there were complaints about a loud knocking noise coming from my room, but I hadn’t heard a thing. At this point I got worried about Kel disappearing and thought that maybe she had locked herself accidentally in some cupboard, and was banging to try to get out. I searched all the cupboards in my room and the room to my left twice, but to no avail.
  • I couldn’t get into her room to search but our balconies were adjoining and I went there to peek into her room and saw two strange women lying down on the bed on top of each other, reading a book. I ducked back before they saw me, as they turned to look toward where I was. Then I began to doubt if she was actually in that room or two rooms over.
  • After a while we had to head downstairs to get ready for school assembly. There were going to be people in robes there, they were startups that had been chosen to present their business to us like we were at a business fair. I guessed maybe Kel had disappeared because she was planning for this, but I never did find out one way or the other.
  • No one else seemed concerned that she was missing. However, some people were concerned that someone else with a strange name (Gwen the Monday? Basically G??? the ???????, with the first word 4 letters long and starting with a G, and the last word 6 or 7 characters long, but it was a guy) was missing and had not been invited to this. He had been a dropout so he was not an official member of the class, but someone else said that he had been invited as part of the startup group. I also never found out anything else about him one way or the other.
  • In the courtyard, people were mingling, and there was food laid out. Occasionally someone would yell “PB!” and put their fist in the air, and everyone else would yell out “PB!” in reply as sort of a chant. I thought this was silly, after all, PB stood for personal best and made no context here. This was more speedrun stuff bleeding over into my dreams.
  • The dream ended as the group of people that had been selected to present their startups came out in a group, all wearing dark robes, and started making their way over to us.
Jul 21 2017
  • This dream involved war games, and I think was a repeat of or inspired from a long ago dream.
  • It started off with a group of us at a museum or field trip of some kind. It involved motel rooms and guns. Tigey was with me too.
  • In my room, I was watching the Italian soccer league at one point, a cat team managed to join the top division and was in 3rd place overall in a very tight league. All the top 6 or 7 teams had changed their team logo to the cat as well in support of them.
  • The front desk staff for the motel handled our mail, and not long before we were going to leave they gave some of us a package from a surprise benefactor. It had 3 Arma, 3 Maybelline, and 1 Playboy magazine stuffed into an envelope.
  • The peaceful part of the dream stretched really long, with no indication that it would eventually turn into war. But I “knew” that the dream would turn dark at some point, and an invading army eventually steered in via a river and started killing the local population of forcing them to join up with the army.
  • The ensuing chaos broke out into guerilla warfare, there was lots of saving/loading the game to savescum for a better result, and basically we picked up whoever and whatever we could, ending up with a group of 5 people, while scavenging food and going camping in the jungle to try to avoid the enemy and survive.
  • The group consisted of two girls, including me, and three guys. Gillian was the other girl in the group, I don’t remember the 3 guys, but one of them was a doctor. We turned away another doctor too, who ended up joining another small group.
  • We jumped off a very high cliff into some water, and a couple of the members’ knees popped on the way down so they needed to be lifted out to shore.
  • At some point later on, both in the previous dream and as a preview in this one before I woke up, I was forced to spend the rest of the dream naked while the rest of my group was clothed, I had tattoos of some kind, and a fully grown wolf came up to me and nuzzled my breasts.
Jul 22 2017
  • I was a young girl and living with my parents and siblings in Edmonton 4012, along with a group of 4-5 young boys that were a fledgling musical band – Mom and society both disliked them.
  • We were accused of a crime we didn’t commit. I was 15 or younger so I was in yellow status according to the law, and so wasn’t in too much trouble, but some of the boys were in red status due to being older offenders. To avoid this trouble, they had the brilliant idea to steal the car in our garage and flee the place, and go live a life on the road. Jon and I helped them pack.
  • While packing, there was a weird minigame where we were jumping around regularly and using jump pads, to collect coins, while avoiding enemies. I could double-jump, which helped a lot.
  • Once they were all packed, they wanted Jon and I to come along too, but even though I wanted to, I knew we would get caught with me around, when they stopped at motels and suspicious staff looked at us, since I was younger than them. Plus if they were caught again then they would get in more trouble if I were there with them, than if it was just boys. Jon may or may not have gone with them in the end though, I forget.
  • I knew that Mom was gathering garbage to bring to the garage and would catch them if they lingered around too much. So I pushed the entire minivan out of the garage with my hands and shut the garage before running into the house as Mom was calling for me. She gave me a huge garbage bag to bring outside. The bag included one single slice of bread and some food in there that had made me sick and throw up the previous day.
  • It was also my birthday and I had collected 86 birthday letters and cards from people that I knew – real life friends, Discord friends, old friends from the past, etc. I had starred them all in a list so I could start to say Thank You when I had time.
Jul 26 2017
  • This seemed to be a repeat dream very similar to something else in the past. It was set in the “world of mii”, I found out at some point.
  • There was a lion dance scene in a big assembly hall with lines of chairs and tables laid out as though for an examination. There was some sort of a contest that involved teams of 3 people chewing bubble gum and depositing them into a team bowl. Some sort of sports stadium was involved as well.
  • There was a Chinese teacher that made us stand and bow to her. The hall in general was very crowded. Our team of 3 lost a member and recruited the leftover girl that didn’t have a group, to make a team of 3 girls. I was in the middle of the three and so was anchoring the group.
  • Snippet: Ronnie set a team meeting scheduled at the same time as the first game of the season for our local team so both he and we couldn’t watch it.
Jul 27 2017 (8/10)
  • I was taking part in a camp with people from my immediate work team (Ronnie, Matt, Kim) as well as Internet friends (including several old LotRO people I know only by character names like Luc, and at least one person from SGDQGreenZSaber). Lots of people there were seeing each other for the first time since they had only previously met over the Internet.
  • This camp was being concurrently hosted at plenty of other venues somewhat near each other, including some place that was “my house”, though it wasn’t any of my actual real life houses. That was where the people that knew me came to, though.
  • There were chartered buses to pick people up to bring them to each camp. The bus numbers were in the 70s and 80s, I remember bus 87 was one of them and was only used to bring 3 people to the camp.
  • There were lots of designated “leaders” at the camp, though I wasn’t one of them. At some point 3 or 4 of us were taking the bus to “my house” and the leaders present wanted to do a meeting and photo op thing that they had wanted to do since most of them were also on the bus and it was near the end of the camp.
  • They asked us non-leaders to get off the bus so that they could do the photo op. I was ambivalent at first but pointed out that those of us non-leaders were transporting huge golden statues with a large circular stone base and that even if I had help getting the statue off the bus, I would not be able to get it back onto the bus by myself since I was a girl.
  • I then jokingly said maybe it’s best we don’t get off at all and they do the photo shoot later. Kim, who was one of the leaders, immediately piped up and agreed and that made most of the leaders chime in in support too.
  • Later on at “my house”, there was a scene where there were lots of people on the bottom and middle floor of the house and I was wandering back and forth, looking for people I know and feeling a bit left out but also trying to avoid someone on the bottom floor and pretending I didn’t see them.
  • I went to the top floor which was mostly deserted, and someone who was either my ex, or another friend I didn’t really want to meet, was there.
  • We got into an argument and he attacked me or did something to me, with me ending up sitting on the floor and backing away from him. A leader stepped in, expelling him, and leaving him with tattered clothing. He calmed down and smiled woefully at me and said he had only come to this event because I had asked him to and now he had wasted all the money (since he had been expelled) and had nothing to show for it (even his clothing had been tattered) and that it and I was very disappointing and he was going home. There was a sort of threat behind the words that made me fearful.
  • Another scene I remember involved Ronnie pulling me aside and telling me that a cereal box contest that I had entered in the past (maybe from another dream, maybe not), where I had to write an essay, had been chosen as the winner. This meant I won a trip to Scotland to present it, and as my supervisor he was told by the company to tell me.
  • However he objected because I hadn’t cleared it with him as my supervisor first, even though it was just a cereal box contest that I had not expected to win. He felt that I had just had a vacation too recently and thus should not go to this one. I was disappointed and argued with him a bit.
  • In order to even hold this conversation, he had to chase a few people from the room that he was talking with, for some private time. Most of the people left at first but a tall organizer person tried to stay behind and not move, and Ronnie had to ask him specifically again to leave before he left.
  • The last scene I remember was that we had a group of 4 at “my house”, including Matt and a leader-type, seated around a table and white board. I was explaining the scene with my disruptive friend and what had happened to the other three, as the leader of the group had heard rumours and wanted to know if we had heard about it. I told him I was involved in it and had first-hand experience.
  • He started writing down a twisted version of the story as I narrated it, things like how I was weak and how it took my brain longer than normal to process information. I nodded to his points as he wrote them one by one.
  • Funnily enough when he wrote down the slowness bit, he put down that my brain processing speed was 1.5 times the normal, and I had to correct him to 0.5. He tried to cover it by somehow saying that one was multiplicative and one was additive, and 1.5 was the total and not the increased amount only, even though that made no sense.
  • Anyway, halfway through that interview, a girl tried to break in to the house and we had to refuse her and then make sure the doors were shut because she was behaving erratically or something. We had an overhead camera feed of the area too so we could see her leave and reenter the vicinity outside. It was very scary.
  • We called, of all people, my ex/friend who got expelled to come help deal with the girl. He hopped in his car and drove over and we never saw what happened to him afterwards. A little bit later, there were other people who tried to break in too, including a huge man with weird eyes that almost got the door open and I needed help to keep out, and others who were trying to force the balcony open.
  • After a while we realised what had happened – the entire world (or at least entire area) had had a zombie outbreak and we were the last surviving members of the area and/or world.
  • Resistance was futile, so we just opened the doors, and the scene progressed in comical slow motion as the zombies burst in along with a cloud of mist of some sort.
  • Cue to the next scene, we were relaxing as zombies around the table, Matt had his chair leaned back and feet propped up on the table. We were glad that we had joined the zombie horde as it was more peaceful and time meant nothing. My house phone starting ringing in another room and I commented that someone had better answer it by next week. The dream ended soon after.
Jul 28 2017
  • The dream world involved an RPG game dungeon that later also became a wizard tower and a library. In this dream I was in a small party and was slow-moving compared to the others, and yet I had to avoid enemy monsters while running by them to complete objectives, like looking for a particular room to advance to the next level.
  • Daniel was on the top floor of the library, which was owned by the enemy faction, reading a book. There was a sign there from the enemy faction to us stating that the library was safe and to please use the library responsibly to read.
  • The theme song of the “game”, which played a bunch and also was featured as an in-game objective somehow, was Saltwater by Julian Lennon.
  • Snippet: I was made a moderator of the Tip of my Joystick subreddit by someone I knew (from work?) who happened to be a moderator there too.
  • Snippet: In a town scene later on, I went around looking for an Asian food restaurant but the one I found was closed. My siblings and I were new to the city, but we stayed in a house that looked like Edmonton 4012. The backyard fence was broken so I set up a bear trap buried in some dirt/leaves just in front of our backyard door. A visitor almost stepped into it but avoided it at the last second.
  • Snippet: Lastly, I remember going through a couple job interviews, but not any further context around that.
Jul 29 2017
  • In this dream scenario, there was a school by an outdoors prairie hunting area that looked like some sort of world map packed full of encounters.
  • Rachel and her best friend were a team that would sometimes go out and explore/adventure. I would often go out around the same time but not “with” them. Due to this, I knew that once they left the door, Wild E. Coyote would spawn and go after them. They knew this too. He was hilariously easy to defeat and I watched them wait for him and defeat him a couple times.
  • There were 4 “quadrants” of the map and I had 1/4 of it on lockdown, Tyler P had 1/4 of it, Rachel and her friend had 1/4 of it, and I was trying to recruit some other friends for the other 1/4.
  • I had recently returned from vacation and was also planning another in December, together with Rachel and her friend, and my parents. But for now I was going back to school. I had skipped the first day back and was very late on the 2nd day, but the school was on lockdown when we arrived, due to some sort of theft. Everyone inside was told to remain inside and everyone outside was told to remain at the front gate while they figured it out. In this way, my being “late” was masked. Also, there was some sort of school sports team on the other side of the gate.
  • It was my “first day” back at school post-transition or something and apparently about half the class were people I knew from Singapore many years ago but who didn’t know I had transitioned, Mrs Shu included. I ran through several scenarios in my mind, including one where I went up to Mrs Shu and whispered to her who I was, one where I told them all about my transition, and one where I didn’t and just went to a chair with my cat bag.
  • Besides Rachel, other former Singapore classmates that were in the dream included Xuanjie (who was at the front gate, and I chatted with him briefly there even though he had no idea who I was) and Gillian (who gave me a hug in the mental scenario I ran through where I told everyone about me).
Jul 31 2017
  • I was at some sort of a drinking bar. The CIA or a similar organization were present at the back of the bar and kidnapping people, strapping them to a stretcher, and sliding them under the bar counter at the back of the room. This had something to do with a criminal hidden in the room, who eventually tried to do the same thing to someone, and got caught because the bartender and some passersby saw the kidnapped body sticking out.

August 2017

Aug 02 2017
  • The only part of the dream that I remember involves building a ceiling rope trap, from which I had the blueprints somewhere from a previous dream “in the past”. It was scribbled down on a piece of paper and at the bottom of a backpack, but the teacher or whoever was in charge could not find anyone else that was able to build it.
  • Eventually the paper was found and the trap built. It consisted of magical rope that would fall onto the person underneath and bind them securely. They would then either be sold to bandits or something, depending on how they behaved.
Aug 06 2017
  • Snippet: Among other things, I made a virtual machine on a computer with LotRO and IRC on it.
Aug 07 2017
  • This dream involved some kind of dorm neighbourhood. There was a red guild/clan with 5-6 other clans allied to them, they were mostly jerks and had their own house. They had different shades of red as their guild colours. There were other guilds/clans too but don’t remember much about them.
  • I was staying in a dorm area full of random beds, mostly occupied, mostly groups of guys so I largely stuck with myself and one other unknown person since I was a girl. People stayed for different lengths of time, like a hotel, so the population was always fluid.
  • I did meet Xuanjie there, though he didn’t recognise me post-transition. I introduced myself and invited him for lunch, and we talked and caught up on old times.
  • There was also some sort of a 4-person obstacle course thing, but I was being klutzy as always and forgot to bring some sort of gear, and then fell off a floating path — inadvertantly finding a shortcut through the obstacle course by doing so.
Aug 08 2017
  • I attended a reunion raid in LotRO with some of my DoMH friends, except the activities were rather benign, one was just standing around and channeling traps to get rid of or claim them. Although nothing much happened, even Seo was there.
  • Another scene was a top-down “control the dots on a map” thing where I led a small group of friendly dots and I entered the map through a northern elevator. It was a big room and I had to activate a zombie dot on the western side, then lead and protect it back to the elevator.
  • Once I found the zombie and activated it, the rest of the map turned aggressive, including a lich in the middle of the room, and they all started to move toward me to attack me.
Aug 09 2017
  • I was playing a top-down game where the goal was to defeat some terrorists. When needed it would switch to third person camera from behind us, then back to top-down eventually.
  • Some sort of calamity had also recently happened to the world, and me and my male partner were a team travelling around trying to defeat said terrorists. We took some sort of vehicle, either a hovercraft or water bike of some sort, between a “safe” area and a “dangerous” one. We also scanned people with some device and my partner was frustrated when they kept showing as a 1 on the device, which meant they were innocent or not what we were looking for.
  • There may also have been a scene with Dad or both parents, a storeroom, and them having a daily food stipend of some sort.
  • At one point 3 other girls and I were kidnapped and brought to the kidnappers hideout. We were strapped to chairs and made to pick a number/percent. The highest the number, the more painful the chair would shock us, but the lower the number, the longer it would shock us at once. She demonstrated it on all of us, and also included a switch next to our chair that let us double or skip the intensity of the electric torture altogether.
  • We were forced to make a television ad and for one reason or another that included the location where we were being held captive. At some point that scene just ended without resolution. Either we were let go or my partner rescued us.
Aug 10 2017
  • Snippet: The only thing I remember is having to do things on some sort of 3rd-person-view 3D in-game map, and also meeting up with others at one point, and everyone doing introductions. I introduced myself as a gamer girl.
Aug 11 2017
  • At some point, Satinel and I were in bed in a motel room together. I was under the blanket and she had a hand under the blanket, trying to tickle me. I was holding on to her hand with both hands to try to prevent her from doing so.
  • At another point, I was reading, writing, or playing something with a guy at a table, and realised that we were 8 minutes late for a D&D game downstairs with other friends. Later on, I arrived back into the same room and there was a maid in it cleaning up, and she left so I could have some privacy.
  • At yet another point, I was in a really comfortable jail cell that looked like the motel room, and was talking to a friend outside the cell. A random lady wandered by looking for her husband, and I exclaimed her name because somehow I knew it from somewhere else, and I eventually remembered that I had met or sat beside her or something in a previous dream. She was a middle-aged, wiry white woman with the last name of Chong.
Aug 12 2017
  • There was a scene with a young male guide and an annoying black tourist female riding in a speedboat. The speedboat was sunk low so most of the boat was in water when at rest. The woman dropped her binoculars into the water while trying to gaze at the shore, then jumped off the boat to get it, forcing the guy to stop. She swam back to boat with the binoculars, and as she made her way back to her seat, a small family of ducks swam across the submerged boat, between the two of them, then past the boat altogether.
  • She told the guide not to start the boat until the ducks had passed, obvious as it may be. She wanted to trail it with the boat, but the ducks reached a little cement house/passageway thing and refused to go past it, forcing the two of them to continue on in the boat down a flight of submerged stairs and on their way. She then blamed the guy for the ducks being scared of them.
  • Snippet: There was another earlier speedboat scene with another two people too, but I forget the context.
  • There was also a scene in and around an immigration center or similar building. I was there with my parents as they discussed something with the workers there, and when a lady came by and asked if there was a processing fee for services here, I told her that there was a $75 fee.
  • Apparently the immigration center had “recently” opened up and started to allow Chinese people into the country, and this country was the most prepared for it out of all the countries as this country had put some research into the Chinese culture once they announced that they were opening up “soon” a month or two prior. Due to all the advance preparation that they did, most of the Chinese people looking for a new home ended up moving to that country.
Aug 13 2017
  • I was in a game world that was having a turn-based, card game “war” on a map. The cards in question had attack and defense powers.
  • The entire thing might have been a TV show, and the name of the overarching TV show or game may have been about a kidnapping, but the kidnapping part of the plot never materialized.
  • Enemies from the west invaded the country, but if they went too far in they would get stretched out and we could easily defeat them, so we weren’t too concerned.
  • One of the protagonists who was living their lives at the same time as the war was an adult lady who used to be really good at soccer when she was growing up. Now she mostly just watched soccer. She lived alone in a house in the middle of town. The main protagonist was a guy that was wooing her.
  • Amy showed me her cellphone at some point and on it was a description of a TV show about people who were turned into cats.
  • We also cleared away an entire field of hay and built a labyrinth hideout below it at some point. But a helicopter fired a missile at us when we weren’t careful and let it see us.
Aug 14 2017
  • My dream had a Neptunia-style ditzy protagonist as part of a party of 4 trying to solve something or other. She wore purple and another girl wore blue. There were at least two separate dungeons, and each one required or had a separate party of 4 to do it.
  • There was a bucket of stale water and a piece of ice from a long time ago in a bucket that didn’t melt. I rinsed the bucket out, then held the chunk of ice (which had a fuzzy side) under the tap for a bit, then put it back into the pail.
Aug 15 2017
  • My dream involved a Path of Exile style game, we had teams of around 4 and had to farm cards of 5-6 different colours (white, green, blue, and more) that had different point values (ranging from 2-9) and have them not add up to over a certain number between the 4 of us once all the numbers were combined. The catch was that we couldn’t see all of each other’s hands, as we could or had to keep some of the cards face down so people had no idea what colour they were.
  • To gain cards we had to fight a dragon in a platformer setting, and this felt like a much higher-resolution Terraria arena. Because I had two NPCs with me (I think they were Estelle and Joshua from Trails in the Sky), I could solo it in one attempt without going back to heal.
  • I was apparently communicating with a couple acquaintances from Discord while we played, though through some sort of DiscordIRC hybrid program instead of actually Discord itself. The people were mostly fawning over someone else with a blue username in the server though, who was playing a Chinese MMO.
  • A new seasonal league had just started or was starting soon in the Path of Exile game that I was playing, and this coincided with another seasonal league that was also starting in another game. Both league names started with H.
  • Later on, a jewelry attendant that I passed everyday on the way to school had somehow caused a plane crash. She turned herself in with other people that were involved, but thanks to her lawyers and support, the judge in her court case found them all innocent. The judge said she was very persuasive, largely due to the black rings under her eyes that she could invoke to look stressed.
  • I almost bought jewellery from her twice on the way to work but didn’t have enough time each time. I told her I’d come by again “tomorrow” (Friday). It was a set of bulky but pretty earrings.
  • The next day, her store was located on the way to my class. The train arrived in an underground station, and everyone went up a flight of stairs where security guards were guarding the exits and attendants were pointing people toward the right flights of escalators leading up. There were four escalators per level, and two levels, with two escalators on each level heading up and two heading down. The jewellery kiosk and a few other booths were on that top level. Then outside that was another mall that stretched north to south, and one of the northern exits from the mall led directly into my school.
  • Our class was on the second or third floor, and Ronnie‘s son had fallen from 14 steps down one of the stairs leading up to them but thankfully was unhurt.
  • The classroom was made up of people I knew from a mix of previous places, like work and Singapore. The only person I remembered was Gillian behind me, where she sat on a spare roller chair with her jacket slung over the back of the chair, though I also knew that the person next to me was a guy. The chairs and tables were a bit dusty with chalk.
  • Ronnie almost caused an accident as the bus driver during another trip to the school area, as he was on the cellphone while driving the bus. A bunch of people on the bus were talking about the court case involving the jeweller earlier, and the people being acquitted, and he said that he was annoyed about it.
  • In another segment of the dream, there was a family or group of people who wanted to exploit the newspapers and media to get rich quick. They found a game that was releasing in 3 weeks, which was Pony Island from real life, and jumped on the bandwagon early to hype it up. They had a horde of news reporters with cameras and notepads come by to interview them and take pictures. They made money off of that, then invested it in copies of the game to re-sell at a higher price when the launch date came.
  • However, the scene then shifted to 3 weeks later when the game launch actually came. At this point, their kitchen was in shambles, they were all dejectedly sitting around, and the booth outside was largely ignored. Their time as media darlings had come and gone before the game had launched and so the media no longer cared about them, so everyone just walked by their stall and they couldn’t sell any of the game copies.
  • Joshua from Trails in the Sky also featured in another scene later on together with another girl and me. This scene involved me just wearing a bra with no other top out into public and having to answer some questions from Joshua with the other girl present, after which we would then take our turn and ask him something. That scene also somehow involved a kindly old doctor I was trying to get a surgery date of some sort from.

Dream 1

  • There was an evil overlord person who lived with my family and who I had to escape from. I was a prisoner and the next time he came by, he would murder me. The specific condition was that if he hit me with a weapon then he had the right to execute me.
  • My family, even though they were living in the same house and were fully aware of him, had no stipulation like that attached to them and thus no plans for escape. He had left on a couple days/week-long trip though, so I was going to make my escape and live in the countryside.
  • Over the next period of time, I gathered my stuff into a backpack, where everything I carried had to be worth its weight as every bit of weight would be crucial. The backpack (with me wearing it) also had to fit through a small rectangular hole in the wall at the back of the kitchen as that was my escape hole, and it would be a tight squeeze to get out.
  • I ate some of the family food, and some food from Uncle Droy, who had delivered what was probably some nasi biryani. I then asked my younger siblings to write down the results of a TV show doing some sort of 100 to 1 countdown of top songs and artists or something that was somehow important to the plot.
  • My plan was to stay out in the forest and hunt, and visit Firewatch-style food caches every week or so after food was delivered, and try to meet up with other people out there on the run too.

Dream 2

  • I was a bracer (an adventurer from Trails in the Sky). I sometimes travelled alone, and sometimes travelled with others. One of my quests was to go to City 18 (out of 20) and protect the VIP there. He was going to be making a surprise visit and had told no one about it, but his son had nonchalantly mentioned it while in the presence of one of our senior members as they were seated around in a backyard having a picnic.
  • The location was some sort of a music hall, and I went there with two or three other civilians and saw Johannes and other people from work in the seats of the music hall too. The music hall was pretty small, the main door immediately opened up to the performing stage and the side doors led around to 3 rows of chairs that bent around the stage. The room was shaped like a square C with the stage itself being in the middle of the short inner edge of the C.
  • I sat down and watched the performance from an indie band for a bit before getting a notification that the VIP had arrived. I went out to protect him by shooing off some passersby as he rehearsed an arrival scene with a cameraman, waving and talking to nonexistant crowds off camera as the room they were in, just outside the music hall, was empty.
  • As he didn’t seem to be in actual trouble, I paused that quest to go off and help other bracers with their own quests. One of the quests involved going to City 3 or 4 and helping them decide whether they wanted an opened well or closed well for the village well they were about to build. The closed well meant a small shed would be built around it, an opened well meant it would be open to the elements. A closed well would allow no monsters to spawn inside, since torches would be put inside the shed for light, but no one on the outside would be able to see it either.
  • I was there with two other bracers, a girl and a guy, and we voted — I voted orange for “open well”, and they both voted apple for “closed well”, so that option won. This was no big deal as none of us felt too strongly one way or the other.
  • Once the well was complete, I brought them back to City 18 to continue the quest here, but we now had to go into the basement of the place and fight giant robots that were invading. The female bracer I was with was fighting with melee weapons like plastic forks bent into grotesque shapes, and I had weapons like hairbrushes and tiny sticks and forks too. I did have a death gun and a regular gun as well that fired some sort of pellets, and the death gun had a chance to insta-kill my target, but I didn’t like using them due to limited ammo. In the end I had to though, and destroyed the first robot that way.
Aug 17 2017
  • My dream involved people having or playing different maps or games and an odds system to see how likely the map or game would be finished.
  • People from work featured in the dream, as I had Johannes and Sandy with me in a crowded hallway walking back from lunch. I also visited Matt‘s house alone and talked to him about a camping trip that he was going on soon.
  • I received a smuggled secret box from a clandestine contact by a crowded subway entrance for someone at work, and put it into my pocket. but forgot about it and never delivered it to its destination. Some work people including Ronnie eventually started up a search for it but did not suspect me, and when I recalled it, I and others in the know did not want to deliver it to them.
Aug 18 2017
  • Snippet: I was on the 3rd floor of an American shopping center that was mostly shut down by 5:00 pm on a Tuesday. I did manage to buy dinner before the shops closed but got lost with Dad on the way back.
  • Snippet: There was an open area where people were building and trading blocks and bricks, that looked like they were from Minecraft. We needed certain special bricks to build some sort of gate to leave an area, but there were many other uses for those bricks too.
Aug 19 2017
  • I was trailing a criminal couple to try to nail them under two laws. These laws involved either PETA or childnapping. This was not the first time I had this dream, and I had caught them before.
  • As we got to the HUB Mall and bus station area of the University, they suspected someone was trailing them, and asked the staff to card people as they passed through the doors behind them, but I had a legit employee card so the staff waved me on.
  • My power was that I could project my vision around corners and turns so I didn’t need to be in line of sight to see them. I went nonchalantly right by them and they settled down to have lunch before heading out on the road where I would trail and nab them.
  • I waited outside the building a bit ahead on their route, near a bicycle. There were helicopters stuck there in layovers in seemingly chaotic delayed schedules. While waiting, one of them somehow crashed and exploded even though they all were on the ground or hovering slightly above it, which apparently was some sort of terrorist attack and grounded all flight traffic leaving the area.
  • At some point, representatives from schools were arguing amongst themselves about which school was better, and a small school said they were proud of pulling above their weight class and having their students and alumni do great things even though they were a small school. They named Sam Riegel as their example.
  • At another point, I was looking for people to hire and had an electronic map with an overlay of where I could hire from, as well as a couple dots showing where a potential employee was staying. One dot was outside my hiring zone, one state over to the east, though.
Aug 21 2017
  • Jeremy and I sat through the first 10 minutes of a complicated work professional development course. This was something similar to a Business Process Mapping (part 2) class that I had taken recently in real life. We only sat in it for 10 minutes because we were waiting for 10 after the hour to go somewhere, and we told the friendly instructor that we’d be back.
  • I knew of a criminal on the loose, who may or may not be the criminal later on in this dream, who would murder 1 person and then kidnap 1 person and then do a number of other dastardly tasks.
  • Around hereabouts, there was a part of the dream that had to do with 4 separate goddesses, similar to Neptunia. Also, there was another part of the dream where I knew that someone I didn’t really know was coming to tie me up. How benign or dangerous he was was unclear.
  • There was a Barbie music festival happening in a field and I had a house next to it with a large, square, ground floor window facing it. The window was semi-tinted so I could see out but it was difficult, but not impossible, for people to see in. I had stood there to wave to a couple people and such.
  • The festival attracted a lot of people, especially on the first day, but by subsequent days only had a couple dozen people at once wandering the field. There were two rows of chairs out in the middle of the field in the sunlight where people could rest, too.
  • When the kidnapper or person tying me up arrived, I was stripped naked and my hands were tied behind my back. I was then put into the room with the window facing the festival, and the door was locked. He was going to keep me there for several hours and use a camera to get shots of me. All the while there would be a risk that the passersby outside could see glimpses of me, depending on where I was in the room.
  • When I cringed and protested, he told me that he would give me a copy of the photographs after, and that they’d be worth a lot of money and also be very useful if I ever found myself, say, in or trying to get into “another bed that I didn’t exactly own”.
Aug 23 2017
  • I was taking a crowded train ride home with one of my best female friends, though I don’t remember exactly who. We built a tissue fort in the train below our seats, and a TV cameraman took a shot of it from outside the train at one of the stops where the train was delayed.
  • The dream also involved some time travel to an old version of a historical scene, something briefly to do with a male-dominated society or at least household where one of the female members got yelled at for something.
  • Later on, I was playing a game and hitting a cartoon wolf as high up as he’d go (or perhaps he was jumping). The game screen always defaulted to the very top of the camera bounds but the top of his head barely peaked into the camera area before he fell down again.
  • Another game had some rules where it described a city taken over by evil races and the struggles of various races, including humans, trying to live in it. It had several chapters with different races for each one and ended with a playable gamebook portion at the end.
  • Editor: This last game was apparently somewhat similar to a game called Armello that I had played a bit of recently.
Aug 25 2017
  • A major theme of the dream was strife between two companies called Atlusian and Cornelian. They had recently merged into each other (I believe technically Cornelian had merged into Atlusian) and both were supposed to have a 50% stake in the new company, as they had joint CEOs at the top, and identical numbers of staff all the way down to equivalent numbers of dockworkers and labourers at the bottom.
  • I was trying to mediate some dispute between the two sides, where Atlusians were accusing Cornelians of disrespecting them and running the show themselves and this had caused bad blood between them and some other unknown stuff to happen. The Atlusian worker I was interviewing over a couple of scenes drew out the pyramid-shaped business hierarchy twice for me.
Aug 27 2017
  • This dream involved snails! There were a bunch of restaurants that occasionally had a snail-triggered promotion – for a span of a couple hours, they would open for free food and you could loot a small snack or gift from a cupboard/plate. The actual snack or gift had nothing to do with snails though, so I’m not sure what the exact connection was.
  • The selection process was time-limited to a few seconds, and the gift would explode if you did not pick something and leave quick enough. It would also trigger and explode if you tried to go back for seconds but had a small chance of letting you pick anyway.
  • If there were multiple people near it at once OR you were carrying too many things already, it would “aggro” on the person within a certain radius by highest item rarity (prioritizing someone who was carrying a purple item, or if no one had one, then someone who was carrying a blue item, etc) and explode on them.
  • Since it was time-limited, you could invite your entire guild and all related guilds to go find the restaurant, which was located in a maze-like place, and have everyone pick one gift.
  • I found a restaurant and we went there with our guild and a bunch of allied ones. We were all lined up outside but the line moved very quickly and I lined my guild up at the back of the line. Some of us didn’t care for it and just went there to accompany us but chose not to pick.
  • There was an escalator heading down into the restaurant. Some work people were in the guild, for example Jeremy went to the restaurant and had a few sandwiches or subs for a meal. Also, our guild leader was a female.
  • There wasn’t much left in the cabinet of loot when I got there, and I ended up picking a box containing several bottles of Brand’s Essence of Chicken, but it was already open and when I poured some of it out onto a plate, it was all solid and looked more like bland slices of bacon than Brand’s Essence of Chicken.
  • Jeremy decided to try a small piece of the meat and said it tasted terrible and way too strong – he’s a very picky eater anyway, but I laughed and told him that that wasn’t natural and it was usually a liquid.
  • In a separate but related scene, a girl from the guild (which may have been me) was outside a white building and skipping along a large porch that extended along one of the edges, under overhangs and pillars that supported the building. There were patches of cement, then patches of grass, alternating with each other.
  • I (or the girl) was singing a version of Zombie by The Cranberries, but it was mocking terrorists for not being up to date and for being unable to update to new technologies as they did not have websites online.
  • I was also looking out for loot — loot in this context was round things on the ground (like eggs and mushrooms) that I could spot the outline of through the terrain from far away as they spawned — and I was also looking out for snails.
  • There were 4 different kinds of snails that I could find, and one needed the shells that the snails discarded when they grew new ones to be able to determine when the restaurants were having their special. The snails or shells would glow when one was happening.
  • Three of the snails were common or uncommon and I had one each of those, but the fourth type, some sort of jade snail, was much rarer, and only 3 or 4 shells had ever spawned for the entire populace of the game.
  • There was also the concept of personal spawn points or home teleport points and how most of them were public, but if you lived or worked in certain buildings, you could tie yourself to private teleport points in those buildings too.
Aug 28 2017
  • Snippet: I had a vague memory of a submarine-related dream. Or some sort of small underwater vehicle.
  • Snippet: I had just returned home from a vacation. I checked the calendar, noting that it was Oct 25, or at least Oct something.
  • Snippet: I had the vague memory of an MMOish game where I had to find four fires, one was out in the open between trailers, and the other three were inside mini-dungeons. For the one outside, I had ran past all the aggressive mobs there the first time before I had the objective. When I went back with the objective, it had turned into a top-down game and I had an additional optional objective to burn 20 of those mobs by casting a fire spell on them.
Aug 29 2017
  • Parts of this dream seemed to be inspired from ARK: Survival Evolved. It was set in a bunch of rooms rather than some sort of wide open world.
  • I travelled to those rooms and played with some folks that seemed to be from the The Palantiri guild. I dressed up nicely before we travelled there, with several layers of clothing.
  • Someone brought enough metal plates to lay the foundations of some buildings near the front, as well as to set up some stables to hold mounts. He also tried to build a nameplate but messed up.
  • In the middle of one of the rooms was some kind of stairs leading up to a more dangerous area.
  • Within the context of the larger world, there was either some sort of a war going on or other danger that kept incapacitating people. There was a private clinic room nearby where people were stitched together again, and I found quite a few friends lying around “dead” and brought them up there to be fixed.
  • There was also a canteen area where some of my workmates as well as other random people were sitting and eating. Apparently for some reason we weren’t allowed to sit at the same table as each other as it was deemed to be distracting, and I was complaining about that rule since everyone was nonetheless chatting with each other at wherever they were seated.

September 2017

Sep 01 2017
  • I worked in an office with an older man as a colleague, and while in there I found some travel receipts that I wanted to process. I also needed or wanted permission and clearance from Ronnie, my supervisor, to start processing them and similar receipts, but I found out that Ronnie was going to give the work to my colleague instead. I got frustrated as I was bored and wanted to look into making a list of the receipts. I complained about this and eventually Ronnie said it was best we not do anything at all, since the higher-ups at work would never approve it due to privacy concerns. This was deeply frustrating.
  • Snippet: There was a part of the dream where I was exploring a labyrinth in a 3rd-person over the shoulder camera view, possibly with other people.
Sep 04 2017
  • I remember nothing except that right at the end of the dream, I was singing/listening to the song Promise Me by Beverley Craven, and adjusting it upwards on my Favourite Songs list, from about position 20-30 to my top 10. In the dream I thought it was by Belinda Carlisle, though I knew that was wrong when I woke up and still had it stuck in my mind.
Sep 07 2017
  • Snippet: My dream had something about going inside machines that transported me into book worlds. The last one I went into had a limit of 3.. 3 something.
Sep 09 2017
  • My dream started with me picking up a Lone Wolf gamebook, a Tintin comic book, and a Foxtrot or Garfield comic book together from a large bookstore or library. I then sat down to actually read a gamebook, though I’m not sure if it was the same one that I picked up.
  • The gamebook plot involved the collection of a bunch of medallions that showed where each of the other medallions in the set are and who owned them, and when I defeated a monster and looted a medallion from it, the ending paragraph (400) talked about how I saw a map of the kingdom showing dots of lights in the major cities and towns and such, and how convenient and neat that was. One single medallion was missing, mine, but it lit up with my position shortly after I wore it.
  • Earlier on there was some sort of a plot where I was trying to poison my father in the story and had filled a dishwashing liquid container with a green poisonous concoction and was going to put it in his drink. But after a lot of plotting and other events, I backed out of the plan as I didn’t want to kill him, only poison him to take him out of commission so we wouldn’t do something or go somewhere, but there was no guarantee that he’d survive my attempt on his life.
Sep 10 2017
  • There was a post-apocalyptic, disaster-stricken world where people were still in the streets and trying to evacuate the city. I am uncertain of the details now, but I think there were invaders among other complications preventing them from doing so.
  • At some point people around a bus stop were pleading with an articulated (double-length) bus and its driver to stop and pick them all up, but the bus was already double-booked and could not stop.
  • I was with my family, in our house which had 3 bedrooms with a bed in each one. The ceiling above all 3 beds all sprung a small leak at the same time. Two of them were clear liquids (that turned out to be actually traces of light yellow urine- or oil-like liquids) that dripped onto the bed and blanket, and the third one was dripping small drops of lava, with its corresponding wet ring on the ceiling glowing orange and yellow.
  • I somehow remembered seeing this scene before or having a premonition for it in a previous dream.
  • At some point Mom said she sold all my things for money, including Tigey, or so she thought, but I saw Tigey sitting on a wall shelf behind her and retrieved him. I seriously considered suicide at that point, which would have involved banging my head against the wall until I died, but held off only because I at least still had Tigey.
  • Later, there was a scene at a meeting room/war room where I was meeting workplace folks at, that doubled as an auditorium hall, and possibly some sort of refugee center too. There was a little connected room up and to the left of the hall I was in had sofas, couches, and a television.
  • I noticed a worker putting a notch between chair dividers that looked like it could be used for spying. I called a meeting to talk about it before realizing that all the other chair dividers had a similar notch too, so maybe that was not accurate. Gordie, who was in charge of security, did have a security report saying that there were over 200 spying incidents in the room over the past day (or similar reporting period) though.
Sep 11 2017
  • I don’t remember much except that the dream involved an industrial area and I had to combine septim gems like in Trails in the Sky at one point. There was some sort of overarching plot that may have to do with the leadership of the area changing hands.
  • I also remember for some reason or other downloading a game off an abandonware site. And then wondering if it was a legal link to post on the /r/tipofmyjoystick subreddit for someone else who was looking for it.
Sep 13 2017
  • I was vacationing in Minnesota and was shopping in a large department store with friends. We had originally all queued up at the wrong checkout area until I pointed out the checkout area was a bit further on. I remember noting how neat it was that I had an Internet friend in the city, Kynji, that had just given birth, while we were waiting. We also saw an “Express” automatic checkout machine next to the manual checkout area but none of us qualified for it. It wasn’t for “Guests”. We talked about how useless it seemed to be.
  • The checkout security lady, who was a Chinese girl, pulled me aside at checkout security and made me wait while they performed a security check on me, so my friends who were with me went out ahead of me and took the bus back first. When they were gone, she wondered how Trump had missed deporting me, and then giggled and said it was a joke at my initial surprised look. She then asked me several quiz questions, none of which I understood or could answer, causing her to be very perplexed. Eventually she let me go anyway.
  • I started to walk back by myself to the hotel or motel where we were staying. I had to dodge a number of pedestrians, including several old men and women, on the way home. To get home, I headed north for a couple blocks, then west for some distance, and then checked a map and found out I was perfectly two blocks south of the motel.
  • That trip was also mixed up with maid training of some sort, and at the very end of the dream, our owner had me swap bodies or clothing with another girl, so she could have the more confident role as it suited her, and I could have the more timid role as it suited me better.
  • Editor: The Minnesota visit and Kynji being pregnant were all things that happened when I visited Minnesota for SGDQ in July 2017, although she hadn’t given birth yet as of this dream.
Sep 14 2017

Dream 1

  • The dream revolved around a protagonist in a game who owned and was living in an apartment above a parking garage, represented on a map by a bunch of blocky areas. There was a shop on the lowest level of the apartment.
  • There were daily missions for the person to get to the train station and get to work on time. There were also mission modifiers, like yesterday’s had been a hard modifier and required the person to avoid parties of government agents who were hunting them down.
  • Today’s mission modifier involved getting free noodles if they examined something in the world while on the way to work, but the playthrough of the attempt to get to work instead somehow ended up featuring a cute kid struggling to get some doors open while carrying a suitcase bag to their school.

Dream 2

  • Johannes was going downstairs from a classroom that we were in to check on something, and was planning to stop by a shop to grab a banana split on the way back up.
  • In the meantime, I was setting up two pranks with two different people, though I don’t fully remember the details of the prank. However, it involved people at both the main and overflow hotels, and a group of people from the overflow hotel were going on an outing with one of the people that I had set up a prank on. This part involved taking a bus to one of the prank locations and teleporting to the other prank’s location in order to confuse people or set up an alibi.
  • Later, I was on my computer but the settings in my LotRO game were busted because some flowers would not display no matter what quality or resolution I set it to. This turned out to be a known issue with some other people too, that prevented us from doing some stuff in-game. I also found a custom graphics setting called Women that restricted me to first person view and highest quality graphics, which caused my computer to lag.
  • Even later, there was a man who was robbing a bank because they insisted on leaving a pile of money on a pedestal near the front of the bank. He didn’t spend any of it and eventually returned it when the bank finally figured out their error. But the bank’s response once the money was returned was to just put the money right back on the unsafe pedestal and hire two guards to watch over it.
  • Editor: The part of the dream about main and overflow hotels was a hotel setup that had taken place at SGDQ in Minnesota, which I had visited back in July 2017.
Sep 15 2017

Dream 1

  • I had a very strange dream about playing two games at once with Jahandar. One was PUBG and the other was a strategy action game that involved a lot of hiding. Satinel was watching over Steam streaming services but quit watching at some point. We were both distracted and not really playing either as we were taking care of other things in real life too.
  • The scene then turned to something where police were hunting down two men in a warehouse area, the two men escaped over walls and other obstacles and killed and then stole the identity of two astronauts that were about to go into space in a small rocket for a week along with two women.
  • As the men were evil, the women were going to have a very bad time on the rocket. The women and ground rocket staff didn’t seem to notice that they were not the two male astronauts — I theorized that perhaps they never really met each other much.
  • They took press photos on a runway together, then the 4 of them took a car trip to the rocket area together. One of the men said something about a great week coming up, and this aroused a bit of suspicion.
  • The other man thought he was found out when a police officer came up to him, but it was actually good news – the man he had impersonated had been cleared on some fraud charges of some sort because someone else “dropped the 5” and messed up some accounting. It was a favour that either they or a friend had called in to clear the real astronaut’s actual fraud though.
  • They were brought to a “suit area” in a tent, and then found out that they still had to do a paper exam with 5 or 6 theoretical questions at a table in the tent before they could go onto the spaceship.
  • While there were mild suspicions at this time, most of the staff still seemed quite fooled by the two impersonators, but the two men were afraid the exam would be where they would be found out.
  • They both excused themselves to go to the outdoor toilet, ignoring the exam proctor’s threat of “Right in and out again, or zeroes!” and squeezed into a stall together to discuss what to do. The stalls were entirely made of stone and about double the size of a toilet cubicle, with a stone wall in front of it that blocked direct view from the outside and that one had to walk around to get into the toilet.
  • One of the women also came out to investigate them as she was a bit suspicious (and also despite the proctor’s warning) but one of them hid behind a pillar and she didn’t see him, so she didn’t realize that they were plotting together.
  • The two men briefly talked over what to do, whether they should escape over the wall and run off while they could, or take the exam and hope that they somehow could pass it, with the payout being able to accompany the women on the rocket for a week.
  • After some discussion they realised only the first couple questions were difficult and they could probably wing their way through them and defend their arguments even if they were wrong, and the other ones after that were easier. They decided to go for it, but I woke up at this point before they got back to the tent.

Dream 2

  • There was an arena pet capture game I was playing with two other people, one who knew how to play and was winning over the other two of us, and one who didn’t and didn’t have any points.
  • The game involved random creatures spawning in an indoor map. The creatures were passive and would not attack us, and we could not attack them either. At the base, you could buy different types of food, with different qualities and rarities for each. Each creature type favoured a certain type of food, for example ghosts liked chocolate. There were creatures like elks and spiders and other more exotic creatures as well.
  • One would buy whatever you want, mostly at random for me and the other clueless player, and then ran out into the arena to find and feed creatures, which would tame them if you fed them their favoured food. The tamed creatues would then attack other creatures, possibly only other tamed creatures though I’m not sure, to level up and get points.
  • At the top of the screen was each person’s name, how many points from defeated creatures they had, and their current strongest pet and its level.
  • Sometimes a portal would spawn, and out would come a pack of creatures over the span of a few seconds. Little swirly crystals would spawn near the portal too, and we could attack and destroy those crystals for 1 point as well.
  • I was playing this game before school and work, more specifically I had school start around 1:00 pm and work around 4:45 pm. I had reached the area I was at around 8:15 am though, so I still had several hours.
  • Dad had driven me here from home in a van along with Jon, but I had been tardy leaving the house because there were a bunch of things I had to find before I could leave the house, even though the other two were already waiting in the van. I ended up with four bags of stuff by the time I staggered out. Dad was annoyed at that.

  • I went out to eat at Ali Baba (or Ali something) Restaurant in a shopping mall with several other people from work. Overall I believe I had several different segments of the dream spent in this restaurant, though I only really remember the last part.
  • There were four “stores” in the food area of the mall, with some seats and a place to order from in the north store, and more seats on the south, east and west stores of the mall, which were structured like shops but only had seating areas. The overall mall was structured as a corridor running in a large square shape, and shops on either side of the corridor running around the entire square.
  • Someone ordered ahead for us so there was a pile of steaming flat beans waiting on a huge plate by the time we arrived. Some servers also eventually came around to bring a large bowl of carrot soup and other stuff too. Shelley said that the entire meal cost $14.99, side dishes and all, and that it would be worth it to come back on Monday to eat here even though there would be less of us at work that day, because it was so cheap.
  • The ordering and catering store on the north store was staffed by people in shifts, and one could even sign up to work there and make pastries and other things to sell for $12/hour too. Even several of our workplace executives like Mike were working there at one point.
  • I turned up my nose at the bread as usual, but they had cupcakes and little tarts and similar stuff too, and I was going to order some tarts when we first arrived and were placing our order. However, Johannes dragged me away from the pastries and tarts and told me to come to the southern store to sit.
  • I was mad at him and eventually went back to the north store, myself, to order the tarts anyway, but they were out of tarts by then. All they had was a Singapore-based Bengawan Solo tart called Lapis Sagu, but I didn’t want that, so I said that it was no worry, and that we still had a full course meal coming up anyway and I just wanted to check. The staff said that they’d send some stuff over to the southern store where we were at later.
  • When I went back, Daniel had taken my seat and my bag was on the floor. I sat on the outside of the table next to Shelley instead and told Johannes to pass me my bag. Then the soup came.
  • Earlier on in the dream, I had hosted some work clients there at the mall food area and also had to make a quick presentation to them. It turned out that I or someone had given them the wrong name while introducing myself and so they were very curious as they were given the name of a deceased acquaintance of theirs as my name.
  • They finally had an Aha! moment when I introduced myself, and I had to figure out and explain what happened. Thankfully, they were satisfied with whatever explanation I had, and it was a good coup for me in terms of saving face for our organization.
  • There was also another scene in the general area of the building with Matt and Tyler P and a large bedroom that they were sharing too. They could not sleep on the bed because there was lots of their shared stuff on it, so they always ended up sleeping on the couch or elsewhere. Among the things on the bed was a box of large cards, about twice the size of a standard TCG card, and I noticed and pulled out at least one Legend of the Five Rings green card.
  • I was also for some reason changing in that room, putting on different panties and tops and jackets. I also wanted to go out and ask for a looser top from someone as I could not find one that fit me well, but was denied.

  • I went to SGDQ with Amy. This time, it was being held in somewhere that felt like Malaysia.
  • I met her in the lobby area of a hotel, where she was sitting with a couple other guys. I took my place near her too, and a couple more annoying guys came along to chat with us but left soon after. After some time, I texted Amy and told her that we should go for dinner tomorrow, which was the 2nd last day of the event, as the last day would be really busy.
  • I wanted to go to a restaurant in Vancouver, which was connected to the city we were in by some sort of quick travel. I had been to this restaurant before, perhaps in dreams, but I remembered having delivery receipts from it, and was trying to look its name up in my Gmail inbox. It was the northwest restaurant near the bookstore and mall, on the way to the airport, in my dreamland rendition of Vancouver. It took some time but I eventually found it.
  • Amy insisted that she wanted to pay if possible but only had gold from World of Warcraft to spend on it. I told her that I’d take care of it, since each meal was only around $15.
  • I told her that if we had a couple extra hours, we could also schedule a trip to the airport area and take a cable car ride to Thailand. Either we didn’t have time or she didn’t want to however, so we never ended up doing this.
  • We ended up packaging the food and bringing it back to the hotel, as it was getting late. It was 8:30 pm or so once we started heading home. We had to walk back along the road to the middle of Vancouver to the quick travel portal where we could get back to Malaysia. The trains weren’t running and some gates were slowly closing shut across the road that we needed to use. We made it though.
  • Snippet: In a separate section of my dream, there was a scene where me and Mom and one of my siblings was at home, and someone came to the door to discuss the school reopening again, and talking about some crafting recipe that involved combining a nail and something else. Mom said that short nails that one found near the end of <something> were generally useless for the recipe, as they bent too much whether you arranged them in a tri-pattern, quad-pattern, or and larger pattern.
  • Editor: I had just gone to SGDQ in July of 2017, so memories of this event were still strong in my mind. This dreamland rendition of Vancouver was also one that I have occasionally visited across various dream sessions over the years.
Sep 21 2017
  • I hung out with Ronnie and some workmates in a room on campus. Other people were present as well, and we were playing precision platformer games on some kind of handheld device to get high scores. This was mandated by whoever our boss at the time was (I think it was Trevor) and came during a time of year where we were supposed to be working on projects.
  • The game’s scoring system was messed up and let us attain good aggregate scores anyway without actually having to do any of the super hard jumps, by just repeating the easy parts of the game over and over. Also, we found out that wearing a red cloak let our characters destroy environmental objects during the jump, like ceiling lamps and such. Without the cloak we went right through them. To recharge the red cloak we had to drape it over the recycle bins outside in the hall. Everytime a janitor walked by it would regain 3 charges.
  • Next to the room was an extremely overpriced restaurant, and buying and eating food from there also somehow contributed to our game score. A single banana cost $5 though.
  • Ronnie and I eventually left the room to go back to our workplace after complaining about the situation and how our timesheets now listed as doing this project for 8 hours a day for the past 2 weeks, and how unnecessary it was. When we arrived back at our offices, Ronnie decided that the two of us should go home early and that he would give me a ride home in his car. Or rather, he was trying to persuade me to come along since I seemed to have already completed my actual work. I happily agreed.
  • He also showed me an old spreadsheet with my old name at the top of it from 2012, and asked me why I hadn’t changed it to my new name. I told him that the spreadsheet was from my pre-transition period and I had decided to leave anything done before my transition with my old dead name attached.
  • We would have to pass over the crest of a hill on the way home and Ronnie wanted to decide what game to play related to that today, something like predicting how many trucks or motorcycles would be visible when we crested the hill, or who could be the first to see something.
  • Also, before leaving, Ronnie said he needed to go back to the room we were doing the platforming experiments in to grab something. Since we didn’t want everyone else to know we were leaving, we took the side path back and tried to blend in with the crowd. We did see Sandy go by us back toward the main office but he didn’t see us.
  • When we reached the room, there were 3 or 4 other people who came in right behind us, one white guy and two or three Indians. We were somewhat wary of them, and I was shocked (and yelled out a “Noooooo!”) when someone got punched behind me in the room. I thought they had attacked Ronnie. Turns out one of the Indians had punched one of the other strangers, but that was fine as they were all friends. Even Ronnie laughed.
  • The next day, Ronnie was supposed to have released a new work assignment on a table at a train station platform, but when we reached there our previous assignments were still lying on the table and I ended up grabbing someone else’s and getting onto the train as it was leaving. It was titled to someone named Robert Graham.
  • The new assignment would have been to list off all the possible items that one could get in some game world. We tried making these lists individually anyway, but most of my workmates could only come up with about 150 out of 250. I had about 170, which was higher than everyone else.

  • There were several rows of shops outside a walled city area. These outside shops included food stores, and various other businesses. Satinel owned a store that looked like a photography/camera shop but was actually a front for both a dungeon and a warehouse in a basement where she raised exotic pets.
  • I was in a large player guild for connection purposes, so I could reach as many people as possible, and she was running guildless for secrecy purposes so that no one would discover her. We worked together for maximum profit. Some of my workmates were in the guild too, as were many other people.
  • At some point I did get tied up in the dungeon along with two others, with my legs spread, but I soon had to help with defending and hiding the place soon after so I had to be let go while the other two victims remained.
  • There were several scenes to do with us trying to keep the shop secret, including leading other people around elsewhere, propping the door shut when people were outside, and mingling with work folks walking back and forth from the shops and buying snacks/food.
  • There was also a bunch of rioters and looters going shop to shop due to some trigger event that had happened, even though regular shoppers and patrons were still mingling around and doing their thing. One of the shops I went into was attacked by about two dozen of these looters.
  • The store owner brandished a pistol and that immediately cowed all the rioters on the right side of the store, who he forced to crouch in a corner. There were patrons in the mix too due to how busy the shop was, and I noticed one of them “trapped” with the rioters was Sandy. We waved to each other, though I was on the “safe” left side of the room.
  • After a few seconds, the store owner, who turned out to be Ronnie, shot one of the rioters and everyone cried out. Someone accused him of shooting innocent people. Ronnie said that the guy was reaching for a glass shank or some other weapon from his pocket, and that was proven right. Sandy himself almost got shot by Ronnie when he reached over to the dead guy’s pockets to pull out the evidence, but cooler heads prevailed. All this while, a woman who was “Ronnie‘s wife” continued serving customers on the left side of the store.
  • After another few seconds, Ronnie and his wife waved everyone out, and as though a fire alarm had ended, all the cowering people got up and shuffled out of the store. They split up, with some rioters going off in smaller groups to terrorize other stalls, while others just went on their way or continued eating their interrupted meals.
  • Sandy and Matt ended up at a table together, and although I didn’t want to join them since I was still on my subterfuge mission, I saw Johannes walk right by them without seeing them. They called out to him but he didn’t hear, so I said I’d catch up to him on some sort of motorized wheelchair or chair and invite him to eat with them.
  • I finally did so after he had walked some ways further and crossed an alley into a neighbouring aisle with shops. He said at that point he didn’t want to go back all the way there, which was fine by me because I had also achieved my objective of getting away from the table and onward with my quest. I slipped back toward Satinel‘s store.
  • At that point, Satinel had finished her latest round of taming and wanted to smuggle a few rare and illegal pets or monsters into the city. She was going to move them using the follow command for the pets, and her plan was to have me go into the city since I had guild connections, and then she would teleport them over the wall and make them follow me to some safe location. Although there were lesser people around to see us by then, we still made judicious use of the terrain on the way to the city walls to avoid being seen.
  • While we were on our way back to the city with a few pets in tow, we were definitely briefly spotted by a few people as it was still light out and the path Satinel took zigzagged back onto the road a few times, but we had done this before in a previous dream and so as long as we were moving fast it we knew that it usually wouldn’t be an issue.
  • However, out of nowhere, someone named Golgat who also wore our guild tag came charging out of the city gates over the wall and attacked us. He was a heavily armoured warrior class and through massive AOEs, took down Satinel while also doing heavy damage to the animals. I managed to move away a little and then resurrect (which apparently was bound to the Alt key plus the – key on a keyboard) Satinel while he was beating on me, and we fought back while trying to save the animals.
  • During the fight, Golgat was also broadcasting in zone chat for help, though all he said was and “BY GOLGAT” and “OVER HERE” and thankfully unhelpful messages like that since no one else knew where he was. I also yelled angrily at him in guild chat for attacking guild members, and then booted him before he could implicate us any further. I suspected that he had been using the guild panel that told guild members where everyone else in the guild was to lie in wait for us.
  • Satinel also gave me an exasperated comment when she was dead, something about me giving no warning about him charging in. But that was not fair as he was certainly not the first person who had seen and was idly watching us, due to the path she had taken, and our modus operandi was to favour moving fast over staying hidden during that phase of our operation, and as a guildmate he should have had no reason to attack us! He was just some random Russian recruit that someone else had invited at some point though, and that was the issue in the end.
  • I woke up soon after so the combat never resolved.
Sep 24 2017
  • My car was broken into, and the parking garage claimed they had no idea who did it. My car apparently came with an external camera pointed at it, however, and upon reviewing those camera logs, I saw two black men breaking into my vehicle, then leaving the doors open, then getting onto the roof of my car and fighting each other on it.
  • After reviewing all that, Dad came by in his car. He offered to either take me back to the parking garage office to report it today, or sometime over the next two days, I thought for a while then decided to go today.
Sep 27 2017
  • I attended a music show which was basically an outdoor concert, late at night. One of the bands was a band from Sweden made out of 4 ladies, and they were all news reporters too. One of the ladies played the drums very enthusiastically.
  • The lights and concert were happening on the north side of a small city. I ran around the south side of the city between alleys to explore at one point, and found it very, very dark and completely deserted.

Dream 1

  • I and someone else had just finished programming movement in a game and were testing it out. There was bits of terrain floating around the game world, and I had an area where you could swing from ring to ring to get across a large pit. My unnamed female partner had some other mini obstacle course set up as well. We invited Jahandar and another girl onto the server to test it out and decided to play a game of hide and seek around a warehouse area once they were done.
  • Only Jah got found, and this was because he didn’t have full admin powers and couldn’t fly, so he was disadvantaged when trying to hide from us. I was on a team with him, so when our hiding timer started, I took him and flew up to a roof and deposited him there, but he came right back down again. We were allowed to move around a bit so I went back and forth between a loft and the ground below it in one of the warehouses, and managed to stay hidden that way.

Dream 2

  • This separate dream contained a separate game, specifically a co-op word game with me and my female partner, with a guy as the judge and the person giving clues. We had to come up with a plausible continuation to a story based around an existing scenario and a bunch of keywords that he’d give from a list.
  • For example, my partner started, and the scenario we had was a party. The first keyword she had was “poofs”. I wanted that because I was thinking I’d do something with a baker friend bringing a bunch of cream “puffs” even though that didn’t quite fit the bill. She came up with some other story about trying a teaspoon of something.
  • It was my turn next, and I had three keywords, they were all really weird clothing pieces – something about a venom shirt, some sort of pants and a hat. Easy enough, I introduced my character into the story and said I had just arrived to this party from another costume party. It was nice to be young on Halloween, I said, because you could find parties from morning till dusk if you knew where to look. I was dressed in those clothes and instead of going directly into the party, I went into the shed outside to change out to more comfortable clothing from a bag that I was carrying.
  • I was very acutely aware that I was stammering a bit and had an accent as I was reciting my story, but the people really seemed to like my answer, especially since it led really well into the next word my partner had, which was “lock”. She had to go out and investigate the shed which they had realised had locked itself from the inside.
  • The story didn’t continue any further but I did see that the judge had a list had a bunch of weird keywords and shifting scenes that we would have had to accommodate into the story.
Sep 29 2017
  • Snippet: I dreamt that I woke up and found 30 emails about licensing for some fictional application called Lucidpress or Lucidchart in my work inbox.
Sep 30 2017
  • I dreamt I had my final surgery to complete my transition process. I was late for it because I had to shave and had forgotten all about it. The surgery was administered (but not performed) by a guy named Jack.
  • I was sore after the surgery, but completely coherent. I went around to talk to different groups of people. 5 people from a Discord all pinged me to say nice things to congratulate my safe surgery, and bought me a Steam game or two after one of them coordinated it.
  • There was a mix of workplace folks, Singapore folks, and other randoms in a school setting and playing a co-op space raiding game that I felt was similar to a mix between Eve Online and Destiny 2. I tried it a little bit but didn’t get very far due to my surgery recovery, and then they all left me behind so I didn’t feel like playing anymore.
  • I got stuck in an elevator, and its doors wouldn’t open until the elevator went back down to the bottom floor where I had entered it by. Apparently when I came out I learnt there was a warning sign over the door and that someone had allegedly died in the stuck elevator recently, but the warning sign was broken and nearly illegible and there was no body to be found inside.
  • The other elevator worked fine but only had 3 walls, the fourth wall was flanked by a staircase. A security guard accompanied me up the elevator ride in case it broke.
  • I had a work ticket where someone sent an article of clothing as an attachment to it, through some strange protocol, while trying to return it to someone else. It was misdirected so I had to return it to Jack, because he was also apparently in charge of that sort of stuff, and I reported in to him about my surgery recovery at the same time.

  • Snippet: Part of this dream involved some 2-star and 3-star LotRO achievements that some people in my online guild were trying to do. There were 7 players in the guild, including Eugene, who had enough gear or achievements to be ready for 3-star raids. Stars in this context represented difficulty levels.
  • Snippet: In a class scene, there was a cute, female substitute teacher that always went a bit soft on us, and that we mostly liked.
  • Snippet: Finally, there was a driving scene where we were deciding whether to use our car to help slow down a criminal driving in the other lane so someone else could catch him, or not. In the end we did not.
Oct 05 2017
  • Snippet: My dream involved an MMO world, and I was travelling around it with one other player, who I believe was Satinel. The two of us were trying to hide some secret from the guild that we were both in, so we weren’t really involved with them and tried to avoid them and play by ourselves. Travel in the game mostly involved sailing between continents with boats, and we would raise sunken ships and shipwrecks to find cargo as we found them. We also found a weapon by a shore that apparently belonging to someone else in the guild.

  • I accidentally ordered a double helping of Fried Carrot Cake (Chai Tow Kueh) at my local Asian food court store for lunch – I meant to order Tom Yum Soup and an extra helping but instead ordered Tom Yum Cake. They took the order and didn’t question it until after they charged me at the cashier for the vastly more expensive fried carrot cake order, at which point they noted that that it didn’t come in Tom Yum flavour to begin with.
  • I decided to roll with it anyway though, and approved the order anyway. I figured that I would bring the rest back with me for tomorrow’s breakfast or lunch at home. I stayed around for now to wait for my order. The food stall also had other customers and the lunch hour was nearly over. I counted down the time, 15, 10, 5 minutes..
  • I had been waiting with Daniel, who was also meeting someone there. This person, who turned out to be a little waif of a girl, eventually came, and they went to sit at a table and had a long chat with each other.
  • With 5 minutes left before classes started, they finally realized that they had made my order but given it to someone else, who had promptly finished about three quarters of it before leaving the bowl there on the counter and walking off.
  • The cook apologized profusely and said he would make another for me, even though waiting for this would put me far beyond the start time for my next class. Still, I took the opportunity to fix my order, saying that I wanted Tom Yum Soup and Chicken Pad Thai instead, which came up to a slightly cheaper combined price. They could keep the change.
  • We took a while to figure this out as I was trying to write down the doubled price on a convenient whiteboard, but all the markers I tried wouldn’t work. The bottom right corner of the whiteboard was claimed by someone I knew, somehow. Also the cook was very talkative and said a bunch of things that I don’t remember.
  • Once it rolled past the top of the hour, everyone was gone but me, the cook, Daniel, and his female friend. Their conversation was very loud in the silence of the room as I was standing nearby but I was trying not to listen to them to give him some privacy, so I couldn’t understand a word that they said.
  • Once I got my order, I finally started making my way back to class. But by the time I got onto the campus grounds, it was 1:45. I knelt down and opened my multipurpose file to check the schedule – from 1:00 to 1:50 was a Chinese language class that I hated anyway, while from 1:50 to 2:00 was the name of an indie Steam game (Gone Home, I believe).
  • There were some laminated L5R cards in the file, and one of them was in the card holder right at the front inside flap of the folder. Naturally it was the one with my Reddit username on it — Walking the Way.
  • My GPS also activated once I was on campus, so everyone knew my position and similarly I could see others. I saw that James was nearby and may have been looking for me as he started walking my way, but we didn’t end up meeting. I slowed my pace a little so I would end up reaching class at around 1:50, but I wasn’t allowed to stop as that would have signified that I had reached my destination or was using a staircase.
  • I started crying for no good reason at all as a song called The Byway of Departure from the Trails in the Sky soundtrack played.
  • Editor: The song in question is this one.
Oct 10 2017
  • There was an ice hockey team league or conference with a massive number of small, elite teams, and no physical contact or rough play allowed. There was a master score table of all the leaders, and a note from the organizers that if you didn’t at least collect 7 days worth of points from the shared water well as part of preparation, then you had no hope of finishing in the top page in the table of teams.
  • Most of the players from the teams were mingling around an open area. I was there with a friend and there was food. I tried a Swedish cake, which was very crumbly and tasted weird and tangy.
Oct 13 2017
  • I was playing a stealth/action game where I had to knock out and drag people away with a friend, who had to leave for lunch so I decided to try the next room myself. This room had a doctor, a nurse, and a fat lady patient. I knocked out the nurse, the patient, and then the doctor, although the doctor could have been used to help take out people in future rooms too if I had recruited them instead.
  • Due to patrolling guards, I had to then leave the room to go to another one, and by the time I had returned one of them had found and revived the doctor. I went to speak to the doctor who didn’t seem to remember being knocked out. He said that his pet monkey had urinated nearby and that that had created a strange effect.
  • Snippet: Gabrielle went from a newbie to winning two PUBG games after she binge played it for 10 hours a day for a couple weeks.
  • Snippet: There was some sort of revolutionary game recording software that was released and everyone was excited about because it helped them track and record games played or something. Something similar to plays.tv but better somehow.
Oct 16 2017
  • One of the later scenes in my dream involved me watching a character that was also being “controlled” by me from a 3rd-person perspective, who was a girl being harassed by a group of people on an early morning bus. The group was led by two or three people sitting on one of the long sideways seats at the front of the bus.
  • Nonetheless, all was going well until a white knight guy boarded the bus and complained about it. One of the leaders then asked the bus driver to stop at the next stop, and she ordered the white knight off on pain of death.
  • It turned out that she was a nazgul, and this was a book promo of some sort. The scene went to some preorder page where you could pay $15 extra to buy movie rights.
Oct 18 2017
  • There was a minigame in WoW where 4 people queue up for the game at a time. They would become allies and face waves of mobs that started off easy and graedually got harder. The players could kill them using a special skill, which would make them able to look at the monster’s skill bar and steal one skill from them. Each round took about 5 minutes, and the top 20 players at the end of the weekend got some special prize.
  • There was also a classroom or lecture hall scene but I forget the context. Some people left for another class when the bell rung while others stayed. Angie was there.
  • The dream also contained a number of room puzzles to solve. For the last one, I remember I entered a darkened room via a hole in the back, and had to look for a key to unlock the door on the far side. There was a generator which, when touched, started a 2 minute timer on an explosive near the front of the room. I couldn’t find the key but I did realise that the generator wasn’t a threat because I could just run out of the room and let it explode, which I did, and then come back in and continue searching.
  • Then I realised or was told that the generator was a red herring trap and I could just leave it alone and search without triggering the bomb in the first place. Eventually I found the key in an air grate right by a hole at the back of the room.
  • There was some sort of parade at the very end just before I awoke where those of us that had solved rooms lined up in an open courtyard.
Oct 19 2017
  • Snippet: My dream involved a group of people flying a plane into a place where the people were not friendly to them, and then later on flying a colony ship from Earth out into the stars.
Oct 20 2017
  • I was post-surgery and visited my workplace — my workmates were away and I avoided my boss but I did bump into all the supervisors waiting for their supervisors’ meeting on the 3rd floor of my workspace building. A couple of them made comments like “Oooh, you’re back, can you come back to work early?”, and “Working for free!”.
  • On the way out I bumped into a plump lady whom I had never seen before. She was panicking because she had no idea where the supervisors’ meeting was and was late for it. I told her it was in one of the rooms on the 3rd floor. She didn’t hear me at first and waited around awkwardly until I started to leave, then she asked the question again, and I told her the answer again. Then this time she ran off.
  • I wheeled an empty wheelchair away from the University past random people at a bus stop because I thought it was mine. I soon realised that it couldn’t be mine as it had a University tag on it. I left it by a power breaker box at the start of Highway 60 (or something similar to that number) and called them about it.
  • Snippet: I got 230ish upvotes and about 69,000 views on a mini rant about Singapore jobs in a Reddit thread which I later realised had nothing to do with the thread topic in the first place (even though the person I replied to had led into the topic).
Oct 21 2017
  • There was a vehicle chase where 4 guys and a girl escaped the police. They got away in a red truck and escaped by moving to near the outskirts of the city, taking a road out, taking another road back in to the city to confuse the police, then back out again. One of the guys then abandoned the red truck at his house and everyone hopped into a smaller vehicle and took off again, with the police totally lost.
  • The girl later died, and no one, not even her friends, really remembered her or knew what to do with her because she was homeless and had apparently fallen through the social security net. She spent a lot of time playing on a public piano at a facility, passersby would stop and listen and then shake their head. People afterwards played back her music and tried to figure out if they knew it from somewhere else.
  • Someone knew her mother, and the dream briefly went to a flashback scene of another group of 5 street-wise teenagers, one of which was said mom. The mom liked to curse a lot and had lung cancer but enjoyed smoking.
  • A citizen in town was enraged at the lack of the town’s social security net, and appealed for everyone to take care of each other, and do the right thin. He then proposed or promoted Ordinance 44 in relation to that, which was that everyone had to lock their door at the end of the day.
  • I burst into tears at the girl’s eulogy once a funeral was held for her, and had to run away to hide them.
  • Later on, Grandma was on the 3rd level of a building in a room with dimmed lights, watching television. There were two sets of 4 elevators and several lobbies and pathways running around the inside of the building.
  • We were questioning a couple of friends why they were going up when we were all going to meet in a downstairs lobby for a trip. They said they were going to look for Matt but that was a bad excuse because he was likely to be already on his way down in one of the many elevators. Indeed, he came down on one of the elevators in the other set as they went up.
  • A group of people from one of the Client Support teams from work were in the lobby too, and we jokingly wnated to give away the field trip spots of the two people who had gone up and wasted more of our time, to two of that group. The Client Support team was going on their own trip however. They were all reminiscing about something or other while waiting.
  • Snippet: Rylee was living with Seina, but she had to move out of their shared apartment after they split up and Seina had someone else move in.

  • Satinel and I played Divinity: Original Sin 2 for 40 minutes longer than usual and I had to tell Satinel that we had to cut it out because I had long lost focus on the game and had a court case to prepare for and go to.
  • The government had rescued several families from a burning fire but had then relocated them to different places — for example, a child was in one housing location but his father, grandfather, and 7-8 other kids had been put into another, and the government refused to tell them where out of privacy. The government rep just gave them a sickly sweet smile.
  • It was apparently a case I had remembered winning before, after I had both tricked and argued my way past some tests in the courtroom.
  • There were two other “competitors” that I had to beat to win the court case – the last time it was Tyler A and someone else, but this time Tyler was just there as a guest and it was Mark from work, I think, and someone else.
  • The rule for the first test was that the two people with the smallest underwear size and the largest shoe size would be eliminated, and I had to survive both to proceed to the actual case. I basically wore large size 10 shoes and traded them with someone else to win.
  • The second test was an analysis and presentation that I had to make. I aced this the last time and wowed everyone with my presentation, so I tried to find the notes to the presentation again but failed. It was done on the hottest day of the year so I tried looking that date up in the school records to determine where in my archives the files might be located, but to no avail.
  • Either way, the dream ended before this resolved.

  • I had a panic attack in my dream, and had to leave the stage where Critical Role was putting on a show that I had apparently joined them for.
  • The show wasn’t running at the time, and Vax and Vex, two characters from the campaign, were playing L5R on the couch while Matt Mercer was talking and setting everything up for the game. I retreated into some empty side room in the carnival that was used for script-writing to cry there. Some kind guy happened by and started coaching me to try to make me feel better.

  • I went into a second-hand book store with Kel while Mom went off to do something else. Inside the store, a dog belonging to a patron came by and brushed against my bare legs, and then hung around, looking up happily at me.
  • A kid belonging to patron was at a table pretending to play some L5R cards. She didn’t seem to know the rules though. She was holding a handful of cards, maybe 5 or 6 of them in total, including the Imperial Edition version of the Inheritance card.
  • A shelf nearby had a bunch of promotional cards for sale, inside of wide but thin squarish card packs that didn’t make sense for the card shape at all. They were special crossover cards with a bunch of different franchises, the only one of which I knew was World of Warcraft (it was called Nights of Azeroth or something). Each pack was $25 though even though it only probably contained 5 or 6 cards each.

  • Snippet: A “structured” art class was taking place. Ronnie was browsing it at the front of the class, Johannes had taken the course in the previous semester, but it was still ongoing for him as well in a different semester, and he had different assignments now. Yucheng was considering taking it too.
  • Snippet: I boarded a horizontal elevator that Jah may also later have boarded at a different stop, from the 2nd level of a monster-infested building. A delivery person also used it to bring along a large piece of furniture on a trolley while I and some family members were in the elevator. The elevator ended up coasting more or less horizontally on a tilted metal slide or road at some point too, though it was suspended in midair for the first bit of its path.
  • The elevator led to apartments, and I and my family were visiting some extended family or friends who were living there. Jah died below the elevator to some mobs and I went down to resurrect him there. Another player that was PvP-flagged came along and started to try to stab us, but he was just spamming regular attacks, so I kept the two of us healed while Jah murdered him.
  • Snippet: Satinel levelled a 2nd character, a bard, to level 40 in an MMO while I was waiting on my main character to log in to kill a boss mob. Nyari and others were near and eventually killed it without Satinel around (even though I teleported it away once to reset it), and I became upset with Satinel and wouldn’t play with her for the rest of the day.

  • We were set upon in a PvP zone by an enemy group just before we all had to leave. I was mad at first that we continued leaving because we were holding our own with my healing and could have defeated them, but people had to get back to class on time for a pop quiz, so they needed to get back to a safe area to log out.
  • I looted an artifact named Children’s Resonent Sphere, which had 7 stats or buffs on it, including two I really wanted. There was a third stat that I wanted as well, and I planned to eventually reroll one of the remaining stats to try to get it.
  • I was also streaming my gameplay and had gotten up to 10-13 viewers watching me on my channel.

Dream 1

  • I had a dream about Dad visiting a stadium to watch soccer matches while overseas. He went with someone named Candy. Candy got harassed and mocked a couple times by guys who didn’t think she would know anything about the sport and was just there to “learn the game”.
  • Dad got into a fight with someone that started with Dad tossing a rock at that person, and that person then tossing a rock back. This escalated into an impromptu battle with rocks and shields, and then eventually them into driving construction vehicles at each other.
  • The camera then pulled back to show a recording studio where Matt Mercer was describing this entire scene to Sam Riegel. The two of them had dressed up like a comedy skit while Matt was describing it, so Matt was now in defensive boxing gear and Sam was in a wasteland barbarian/raider’s outfit with bulky shoulders and a stump for a left arm.
  • He then pretended he was going to attack Matt like Dad did, but then out of the forehead part of Matt‘s hat popped a spring-attached boxing glove which hit Sam and sent him flying.

Dream 2

  • Another dream involved a car with 5 people in it. I was there with Kel and someone else, and we drove to a friend of hers to pick her and Dad up. The back seat was cramped and a bit uncomfortable.
  • We were somewhat late getting to wherever we were driving to, but we wanted to not draw attention to ourselves. The driver turned on the car radio music and we couldn’t guess what song it was, so she set it to an outside radio mode where the music would be blaring on the outside of the car instead of inside the car. We conferred and decided that that was a bad idea, so we turned the radio so that the music was playing back on the inside of the car, and set up some dark fog thing so that people outside couldn’t see who was inside the car. We then drove off carefully, avoiding loitering skinheaded people who were on the road.
  • Snippet: Another scene involved heavy rain while I was at a bus stop. I took a newspaper from somewhere to cover my head but it got ruined by the water and fell off onto the ground so I had to backtrack to get another. While I was doing so I ran into someone and stopped to talk to them until the bus arrived.

  • Snippet: Edmonton’s forecast had a 20% chance of a tsunami, even though in my dreams we were 30,000 miles inland from the ocean. I was at work, and there was some IAM project stuff on the board, where my work team was writing down cons of the Password Reset process that our University had.
  • Snippet: There was also a bunch of stuff about a self-contained roguelike game, whatever that means.
Nov 12 2017
  • Snippet: I remember something about an “improved” remote desktop program somehow, that worked over a wireless network even when others didn’t. There was also some sort of boss mob or mind-controller in a dream game world.

Editor: My vaginoplasty surgery was in Montreal on Nov 15 2017, and I was there from Nov 13-Nov 23 2017.

  • I came across a guild of girls doing stage 1 of a dragon fight in an MMO by summoning it using a dancing simulator thing where they were shrunk down and moved into a machine and had to take turns jumping on a series of 8 coloured music buttons in order.
  • Once they were successful, the dragon was summoned and they all popped back out. I decided to help them because it was a public event and I could track the dragon better than them. The dragon flew into a city and then flew too high up though, onto a rafter on the side of a giant tree above a roadside shop, and no one had any idea how to hit it from below.
  • A necromancer boss had also been summoned nearby in another public event and people were on stage 2 of his fight as well. He was coming through the streets toward us so we decided to fight him instead. But then a lava eruption took place just outside the city and lava flooded the streets. Everyone ran towards high ground for cover and both bosses despawned.
  • Snippet: There was a dream about 4 of us, including Steffy who might have been our group leader, going to visit some police station or dungeon at night to explore it and watch movies while there. She had promised me that we wouldn’t watch any horror movies that night, however in typical fashion she also then promised one of the others that the second movie we would watch would be a short horror movie.
  • I protested and said that I would skip watching that one, which would be the final 10-15% of the trip, and she said I couldn’t do that cause of some risk or other. There was a brief talk about handcuffing or chaining me up there and forcing me to watch.
