December 6, 2022 — Boat
I was on a very small boat with my brother, just off the shore of the coast and having a pleasant time. We returned to shore after a while and I
received news that I had been hired for a new job. My job was to scout areas experiencing turmoil and determine what kind of support the people there
needed. My first assignment was an island a couple miles off the coast, but the weather was starting to get bad right as I had to leave. The weather
report on my phone said "Buckle up, because this is gonna take a while!" I took off with my brother, still in the tiny boat, and snow is falling over
the water, to my amazement. The snow quickly turns into rain, though, and I say that it's because the island is much hotter than here, and it'll be
in the 80s (fahrenheit) by the time we arrive. The trip was tumultuous but passed in a blur, and I don't remember what was going on at the island, but
I decided that they needed medical assistance as well as basic supplies.
When I arrived back at the coast, I learn that a new political campaign just launched. It's a bipartisan campaign that's trying to "end political hate."
My reaction was basically "Love the idea! I'll stop hating these politicians when they stop trying to make my very existence illegal. :)"
The dream shifts, and I'm on the boat again with both of my siblings, and it's nighttime. We're sailing out to a different island because my brother wanted to
spend the night with his friends who lived on the island. This could hardly be considered an island, though, because it was made entirely of rocks and
most of the rocks were about an inch underwater anyways. We arrive at the island and my brother gets out of the boat but can't find his friends. My
brother is upset, and we try to convince him to come back with us but he refuses. He just wanders aimlessly around the island looking for his friends,
and we're forced to leave without him.
Somehow, I end up in the water—not drowning or anything, just swimming. I'm underwater though, and it's bitch black because it's still nighttime, so I
have no clue where I'm going. I come up for breath and see that I ended up in a cave. I recognize the cave, though, so I'm not stressed. The cave is
just water at the bottom, but there's rocky platforms I can get onto easily if I want to. I don't stay though, because I know I need to get back to my
sibling. I call out their name and they shout back at me. They're confused about how I ended up all the way over here, and I am too. I swim back to them
and get back on the boat. I say "Fun fact! The cave I was just in is where you can encounter Darkrai" as a completely serious fun fact. We sail back to
shore, still sad about our brother. When we get home, my mom is asleep on the couch but there's a paper grocery bag on the counter with our names written
on it in Sharpie. We're both excited, and for some reason I climb onto the counter and squat down to look inside the bag. It's mostly just snacks, no
food with actual substance, but we're both happy regardless.
At some point I intuitively realize that my brother found his friends—they lived in a cave underground (not the cave I was in). The cave is somehow underwater
but not full of water. No one tells me this, it just gets psychic beamed into my brain.
December 5, 2022 — Sandals Candles
I was in this building that looked like one of the lecture halls at my college. It was nighttime and I had been planning on going to Ralph's,
which was simultaneously located in the shopping center of my old home (where Target normally is) and also next to this lecture hall. I was
halfway through the parking lot when I realized I was barefoot and I had left my sandals in the classroom I had just left. I went back to get
them and was struggling because I couldn't find them but there was a class in session and I was trying so hard to both look natural and not bother
people. The sandals (they were closer to slides, in actuality, but I kept calling them sandals) that I was looking for were orange with a thick white
strap, and cute little oranges were printed on the strap.
I finally found them in a box next to another pair of shoes that looked very similar
to mine (I almost accidentally took that pair before I realized they weren't mine). I put my sandals on and left the classroom and sat in the
hallways outside because I realized there was something wrong with my big toe. There was a bump on the side of my toe and I inspected it. I
applied a little pressure and it popped, but for some reason the pop was super loud and literally sounded like a bang that echoed through the
My friend Colubrid emerged from a room down the hall (I had been vaguely aware that he was around, but he had been preoccupied with something so I
didn't interact with him). He was trying to figure out what caused that sound, and when he realized it was me he grimaced in vague disgust. He
brushed it off quickly though, because he had urgent news to share. We had to get out of the building immediately because 1000 candles were on fire
and the melting wax was an imminent threat for some reason. I followed him out and had to jump over the puddle of wax that was spilling out from
the room he had come from. He wasn't the one who started the fire, there was another man in the room who we simply didn't acknowledge. The candles
were all those tall and skinny white candles, and I knew intuitively that they had been intended for some sort of religious ceremony (nothing bad, just
a typical ceremony).
December 3, 2022 — Fleeing
I was wandering through a world that looked like it was in Minecraft, and I was deeply confused about why it looked like I was in Minecraft.
There was one lone building at the top of a hill and I entered it because I was searching for something. There was a receptionist who clearly
was disinterested in everything and was giving me short answers to all my questions. One of her answers tipped me off a bit, though, and it
made me look up at the ceiling and inspect it. Directly above me was a trapdoor, and through it I could see the face of someone staring wildly
at me. This caught me off guard and I screamed, but nothing bad came from this.
Two people came into the lobby from another room and left the building together. I asked them what they were doing, and their answer was cryptic,
but they strongly implied that they would be sacrificing a specific girl who was also in this building. I panicked at this, and once those two
were gone, I asked the receptionist if I could save the girl. She was indifferent, which was fine because that meant she wouldn't try to stop me.
I grabbed the girl's arm and we took off running.
We were on edge as we ran because we had no clue what direction the other two had gone off in. It didn't take long for me to spot them, though,
and we were trying to move fast but also stay low so they wouldn't spot us. I made one wrong move, though, and one of them spotted us and came
running up to us. He fatally wounded the girl, but ran off after that and made no effort to keep the girl. I was devastated, but we kept running.
Eventually, we reached the coast. We stood for a few minutes just watching the sunset, because it was beautiful and the sun was reflecting off the
water in a way that looked ethereal. There was a tall white tent/tarp on the beach, and the girl laid in it and asked me to leave her there to
die peacefully. I was sad but I agreed to her wish and walked away.
December 1, 2022 — Initiation
I don't remember this dream well, because I didn't write it down, but I want to put it here because one part has
stuck with me for days.
I was going through some sort of initiation/training with a group of people, and we had these long wooden poles as
part of the process. It was supposed to be intense, and a process that not all of us would successfully get through.
To prove this point, the initiator asked one of the girls to behead herself. She raised the pole above her head and
did as she was told with no hesitation. She was almost excited. I was absolutely sickened by the sight and kind of
came to my senses and realized this was not what I wanted for myself and I was terrified of becoming like that. I
immediately left the initiation and didn't look back.
November 30, 2022 — Octopus Soup
In this dream, I am Artemy Burakh. I have no clue why—this is never explained (being Artemy Burakh for no discernable reason is a recurring theme in
my dreams, apparently). I'm getting food for me and my friends, but we're all very poor and there's not a lot of food to go around so it's more like
rations that I'm getting for us. Somehow, on the way to get our food I end up in the possession of 80 dabloons. For some reason, this causes me to
bluff to the man who I'm ordering food from, talking about how much money I have to spend. He ends up bringing me the rations I ordered as well as a
very fancy and expensive octopus soup. I think to myself that I absolutely cannot let my friends know about this—the money wasn't theirs or anything,
but I absolutely was not going to share this fancy soup with them.
To my surprise, the food I originally came here for is given to me for free. I'm
eating the soup as fast as I can and I realize that I cannot let any of this go to waste, so I'm scarfing it down. It came with strips of some strange
bread that was absolutely delicious.
November 23, 2022 — Four Charlottes Airline
My dad is on a flight, and I'm in the airport waiting for him. This isn't my actual dad, but a random man who I just know in-dream is my dad. I was
sitting in a terminal waiting when I decided to walk over to terminal 30, but I wasn't sure where that was. The airport was dark and empty for the most
part, but the area I had just been sitting in was surprisingly fancy and regal. Some attendants noticed how lost I looked and asked me what I was doing.
I told one of them that my dad was on the Four Charlottes flight and they laughed because that airline was pathetic and a joke. They told me the plane was
almost here but that it would have to circle into the airport due to "hurricane activity."
Suddenly, I am in the plane, and I can see our route on a digital map. We start circling down, and I'm trying really hard not to freak out because we're
experiencing turbulance like I've never felt before. This ordeal is over surprisingly quick, though, and we break through the cloudline and land. I'm
excited to see my dad, but he hardly even acknowledges my existence. He's an eccentric academic and he basically dumps his coat and suitcase into my
arms and takes off, not caring if I'm following or not. I keep trying to talk to him but he barely even acknowledges me and keeps running off to talk
to other people about work things.
November 22, 2022 — VTuber Debut
An old friend of mine was making their debut as a VTuber. In order to promote their debut, they released a song, and this song
was just "Machine Gun" by Kira except Gumi was ass naked the whole time. I found it weird and uncomfortable but it seemed to be
intended as artistic nudity so I just left it alone. But, this person was streaming their VTuber debut from a specific room in
my college's dining hall, and I was watching them in-person because I was really annoyed that they took the entire room for
I was giving them the stink eye for the whole stream, and afterwards they came up to me and started glaring right back at me.
I'm not a pussy, so I maintained eye contact. Finally, they asked me what my problem was, and I said "I'm having a rough day
today and I'm grouchy." Their demeanor changed and they asked if I wanted them to grab me a snack. I was startled by the
friendliness but I said that I would appreciate that.
November 21, 2022 — You Know What's Going to Happen
I was playing Pokemon Scarlet, but the game was so massively inappropriate that I messaged my friend
"HOW IS THIS RATED E FOR EVERYONE??" in absolute shock. The most shocking part was that characters were
saying slurs, but there was also this recurring joke in the game where characters would just tell you
"Please. You know what's going to happen." with the obvious implication being that you were going
to end up fucking basically everyone in the game.
There was also an advertisement in-game that featured a man stealing his girlfriend's pants and striking
a post that made his ass look big and his waist small with the tagline "You know what's going to happen."
This was supposed to be a way to market the pants to both genders.
Also, something about this dream must have put me on edge, because for some reason the feeling of my roommate
climbing onto the top bunk woke me up in a literal panic because I thought someone was fucking lunging at me?
November 21, 2022 — Skelephants
TW: Kind of gross/graphic
I am in my childhood home's garage going through some fucked up questions (not sure what this means, I don't remember this part of the dream
but I wrote this down) when at the garage door I see this rotting skeletal elephant with remains hanging off its bones. I was given the objective
of killing the other skelephants that were in the area, but I had to keep this specific one alive and I had to get the rotting stuff off of the
main skelephant's bones. Once I succeeded at this task, the elephant began walking away and I followed it. My driveway looked like my grandparents'
driveway, and when the skelephant reached the fence it turned into a normal lion cub and slowly faded away.
The spirit of Caolan immediately possessed me upon seeing the cub and I was absolutely ENAMORED with the little guy. Even once the cub had faded away,
I spent a while just wandering around repeating "He was so little ... He was so little!!" to myself. I finally made my way back into the garage, and now
the garage was my grandparents'. I hear something struggling against the door that leads into the house and I assume it was a dog that I had forgotten to
let out. I went to open the door—which locked from my side, for some reason—but I couldn't get it open and I quickly realized that I couldn't open it because
on the other side was a stranger much stronger than me furiously trying to open the door. This realization terrified me so bad that I literally woke up yelling.
November 20, 2022 — Reupload
There was a song that I loved written by a person I hated. One day I found that this person had
deleted the song and issued DMCA takedowns to anyone who had ever used the song or even mentioned
its existence. I considered reuploading the song out of spite, but eventually decided against it.
Novermber 19, 2022 — Marge Simpson v. Serial Killer
This was a semi-lucid dream, which I rarely experience. Exciting!
I was Marge Simpson for some reason, and I was home alone in a home that was a fucked up amalgamation of
various homes that I or my relatives lived in. I saw on the news that there was a serial killer loose in my
area and, of course, immediately after there is a pounding on my door. I was vaguely aware that I was dreaming,
but instead of using that knowledge to change the dream I just used it to try to think of better hiding spots or
The dream replayed a couple times. The first time I hid in the dryer, because I thought no one would ever look there.
I was wrong. He found me immediately, but instead of doing anything to me directly he simply turned the dryer on with
me in it. The dream restarts the moment I realize what he's done. This time, I hide in a specific room with the
intention of escaping through the window once he's inside. Unfortunately, I find out that there's a second guy with
the serial killer, and he stays outside because they know I'm going to try to escape. I'm panicking because I don't know
what to do now, and soon after the serial killer throws the door open and spots me. The dream cuts the moment we make eye
contact. It replays a couple more times, but I don't remember what happened in those ones.
November 18, 2022 — Hell Bus
I was taking the bus to a specific exit to pick up my copy of Pokemon Scarlet and my roommate was on the bus with me. Earlier in the day, my
roommate had ranked all of the Mario characters and ranked Peach -1000 and I kept telling her how wrong she was. I apparently owned a Peach
plush because I pulled it out as I was telling my roommate what bad taste she had. But currently, we're chatting on the bus until I realize that
we're in an area that I don't recognize and rapidly approaching train tracks. Everyone else on the bus starts noticing this too and getting
confused. The bus driver smiles and says "Don't worry, I won't let you die."
I blink and all of a sudden it's nighttime and we're barrelling down the freeway in the opposite direction. It's a very intense moment,
between how fast we were going and how much everyone was freaking out over how twelve hours just passed in the blink of an eye and no
one has any memory of what happened. The bus driver is cackling wildly and yells "I didn't let you die, did I?" This moment is so intense that
I woke up shouting.
November 17, 2022 — Evangelical Meat Cult
My friend Nikita impulsively invited me to a group chat that he's a part of. One thing led to another and I
found myself going undercover in order to infiltrate an evangelical cult that this group chat for some
reason had affiliations with. For some reason this cult was located in my grandparents' kitchen. The cult had
a presence so otherworldly that it almost seemed as if they were glowing, like they were the gateway to a better life.
That freaked me the fuck out so I left. I walked out to the driveway and all of a sudden had a giant trash bag full
of hand-me-down clothes that Nikita had sent me. I only had the chance to look at one shirt before I woke up, and it
had the In-n-Out logo on it and said "This is AMAZON park your RUST in my BEDROOM" in bold letters.
November 17, 2022 — Elevator (Evil) (Again)
I was in a dorm hall and I needed to get to the top floor. The problem was that the elevator was rickety as fuck—the bottom of it was
literally made of cloth and if no one was in it when it was ascending it would shoot up like a fucking rocket. There were also no walls
on the elevator. I am far too scared of that thing to use it, but I go to use the stairs and they're literally broken so I just go home.
This dream actually referenced a dream I had in 2021, which also involved evil elevators and broken stairs.
November 3, 2022 — Banana
My sibling had committed suicide, but they had done so by using a banana peel to hang themselves. This is
treated as both possible and very serious in the dream, and I'm absolutely devastated. I'm watching a video of
them from their recent marching band performance, and I notice that there is a banana at their feet, and I
lament over how I didn't see the signs (the sign being the banana).
November 1, 2022 — Elevator (Evil)
TW: Gore/Very gross
Two old friends of mine approached me out of nowhere and started talking to me as if everything was completely normal.
I'm confused, but I go along with it because although I'm wary of them I don't mind chatting with them. For part of the
conversation the two of them are talking about their OCs, and one of them showed me a portion of a song they wrote for their OC.
The video for the song depicted (in a very cartoony and unrealistic manner) the character being dragged by a train along the
train tracks with the lower half of their body completely missing and cartoony intestines spilling out. I was unphased by this,
I was like "Oh, I remember this lore! As we all know, this lore is common knowledge for your OC verse."
To my disappointment, but not my surprise, after only a couple minutes one of the two casually slipped into conversation the fact that they were
looking for someone to help with a creative project of theirs. The implication, of course, was that they wanted me to help.
The dream took a complete turn after this, and it was just me—the two old friends were no longer there. I was ascending a rickety old elevator,
with someone standing next to me. I could not see them and I did not know who they were, but I knew they were much taller than me and I did not
feel safe around them. The elevator stopped at every floor, and every time the doors would slide open to reveal sickly, diseased cats. The
manner in which the cats were diseased is a recurring theme in my nightmares: Puss-like horns/growths coming out of their body, and a general
look and smell of disease and decay that made me feel nauseous. I was made to look at cats suffering from this over and over with each floor
we ascended, and each floor somehow opened up to the outdoors, right on ground level.
October 31, 2022 — National News
I do not remember most of this dream, but I do remember that a song that my friend Nikita wrote when
he was, like, fourteen, made national news for some reason.
October 23, 2022 — Daddy Big Dick Just Landed in WoW
My friend Nikita started playing World of Warcraft, and he revealed this to me by messaging me
in game "Daddy big dick just landed in WoW"
September 14, 2022
This was an incredibly intense, confusing, and disorienting dream. There was a musician I liked who I hadn't
listened to in years, and I was hunting down unreleased and/or unfinished songs of their in order to compile
an abandoned EP. The reason I was doing this actually had nothing to do with the music itself. The hunt for the
songs took place in real life, because physical manifestations of them were scattered across the area. The search
for them was intense and confusing, more of a blur of emotions and colors and noises than an actual coherent dream.
The landscape was distorted too. The only concrete thing that happened was I at one point tried to play one of the
songs but accidentally turned my dryer on in the process. A bright orange light was shining and I was panicking
because I couldn't get the dryer to stop and it was so loud.
