tirsdendreams: (redefinition of me)
This was last week so I only remember bits of it. I was some kind of female special forces member, and there were some small islands close to shore interconnected by wooden rope bridges. There might have been some larger complex further out, but the point I remember now was trying to get across the bridges with an injured teammate.

Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman from Die Hard) was on the shore, and there was a large concrete wall blocking off some of his view. But the second-to-last bridge I needed to cross, he could see just fine. I knew Hans had a rocket launcher, I vaguely remember somebody else getting blown to smithereens trying to cross the bridge ahead of me (nevermind that the bridge was still okay). Hans kept yelling taunts at me and daring me while at the same time telling me things were hopeless.

I knew just sitting there wasn't gonna help either, so I ran as fast as I could, and the bridge curved downwards and then back upwards so steeply that I was able to toss my buddy up onto the island and hide behind the edge of it while still on the bridge. The expected rocket did launch, but I just barely made it and I think it just went by and hit elsewhere. Not sure, because I was moving again since I was still alive.

The last bridge had some protection from the wall, and I think I must have left injured-guy somewhere along there where he'd be safer while I tried to take Hans out. Carefully sneaking past the wall I found myself in a junkyard, and the bad guys were no longer visible. I was afraid they were trying to ambush me, but as I snuck around rusty cars and piles of junk, Hans suddenly walked out in to the middle of a more open area and didn't seem to have any weapons on him at all.

I had my own handgun pointed at him but he just sort of half put his hands up and said they'd decided they were on the wrong side and I didn't have to worry about them anymore. Yeah, seriously, they were honestly sorry, and wanted to make things right. I was thinking I should go back and get my buddy...

Then I woke up.

(This was actually from several days ago... and I apparently didn't save the chat log I had hoped to use to remember more bits, but oh well.)

I had Riddick's baby, but Riddick didn't seem to be around. The dream started after the giving-birth part. The baby had normal eyes and as a newborn was already trying to keep its head up without help; I noticed because I was holding the baby upright and making sure to help with the head thing and it was like... okay wow, baby is strong! (Or stubborn.) Anyways, it was a girl, but I don't remember any name for it.

Then I knew, somehow, that Riddick was dead. And it didn't bother me at all. WTF. It was just like "okay, plot point, moving on." I also knew that aliens were supposedly coming to check on this baby at some point... a sort of friendly hello / checkup /whatever. (Did I mention this dream makes no sense? More so than normal...)

The next part I remember, it was past sunset on a beach and getting quite dark, and there were a lot of teenagers goofing off in the water. I was worried about them because the current was really strong and they didn't seem to be paying attention. Then there was suddenly this long metallic leg thing that went into the water, and I looked up and saw a big spindly metal creature with a small top bit that had a blue light coming out of it. The light was finely-focused, and it seemed to be looking around with it.

Well I figured this was one of the aliens that was supposed to come see how the baby was doing. I waved at the light as it went by me but it didn't seem to care. I was just kinda going, "Oh... that's odd..." and didn't really care either, sorta watching it. Then I got a bad feeling that maybe this was an evil alien, and it was actually here for the baby for some reason and just hadn't figured that out yet.

So I started walking off down the beach away from the alien and the other people as well. Then the blue light fixed on me and I knew this wasn't good. I ran as fast as I could but something happened and I fell forward. I was so worried I'd hurt the baby, but it seemed to be okay beyond crying. I couldn't really move, like I'd been stunned or shocked by the alien. Then the baby was gone, just gone, and I knew the alien had taken her. The alien was gone too.

There was a nondescript structure nearby and someone was hiding in the shadows next to it, some Hispanic teenager. Somehow I knew he had something to do with all this, that he was one of the bad guys. I started beating him up to get information out of him, I was so upset about losing the baby. Then some of the other people from down the beach started coming over to see what had happened, see if I was alright. I told the guy to stay in the shadows because I wasn't finished with him yet, then tried to go tell the people I was okay or something.

He didn't stay put, coming out where people could see he was all banged up. They were like, "Uh, what's going on?" He finally confessed that he had something to do with this, but all he knew was there were clues hidden back at my and Riddick's house. He said he'd show me where. I think I knew a couple of the people on the beach, but they were just kinda random dream-made friends. We went back to my house (random house of dream illogic) and the guy showed us a corner and said it was under the floorboards.

By this time it seems like I'd kinda forgotten about being upset over the baby. (Sort of like not caring about Riddick being dead??) We pulled up the floorboards without any delay and started pulling things out from a small hidden area that was probably a good 4 feet deep but not very wide. One bag that came out of a decent size, someone said was diamonds. That went nowhere, apparently... it just got set aside and the dream forgot about it. We were, after all, looking for clues, but WTF. xD

There were a bunch of screwdrivers, little ones, that were supposedly a puzzle. If we could solve it, we'd know more about the grander mystery. Again, logic failed and we also failed the puzzle just as badly. Meanwhile the evil teenager kid is just sorta sitting around and I really don't remember caring about the fact that he was there or what he did anymore. (Also, at this point, it seems like we were going through not Riddick's, but Vin Diesel's stuff, and I hadn't had his baby and I didn't know him and it was Vin's house... but yeah poor Vin was still dead. GAH.) Then I found some ziplock bags in the bottom of the hidden space that had what looked like SD cards in them (the little digital camera data storage cards). I figured there was probably data we could pull off them, something that would explain hopefully at least in part what was going on.

Then I woke up.

(I've had these notes on a dream from back on February 19th that I keep forgetting to copy here, and since I've located them again, here we go! I'll just copy verbatim what they say being as I've forgotten a lot of this anyways. Anything I want to say on it now will be in brackets.)

talk to guy at airport
"have you checked on ______?"
jump onto train in popcorn [the tops of the cargo sections were all open, and were filled with unpopped popcorn kernels]
other people
go past farm, see giant scorpion? no, lobster
rock lobster lol [I'd had a real-life reference to that song the previous day]
get off train, I'm a princess
2 warriors, 1 archer [rest of party]
then secret tunnel right out of barn [we went into the barn after the train bit]
lobster is now a giant ogre in drag? then gone [I remember being afraid of this thing because it was throwing around large objects and had the potential to smish us all pretty darn fast if it saw us, but then it suddenly wasn't there anymore]
evil wizard lord walks around veggie garden we are hiding in
he spots me and says he should take a hostage for fun
I realize he picks me and run
he stops time on the others
I get enuff distance to "un-freeze-time" [that was literally the spellcasting words]
others still sluggish
he turns me into a tree and I fall, break arm
he turns me back human and I can't move because of arm
he forms a sled-ish magical vehicle under me and steers it off w/ me
others later at campfire, the 2 warriors are arguing
dark-haired one saying I was talking about marrying the other one as if it were a done deal (he overheard I'd had a vision?) and only because the light-haired one was a prince
prince claimed to have no idea what the other one was talking about

[Then I woke up.]

This seemed like a cross between Edward Scissorhands, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and I'm not sure what else... I was in a town that had a lot of snow, and was very goth. Goth snow? Yes. There was a lot of black ironwork involved too. I was standing in a town square (except it was round).

Suddenly this new guy shows up, in a big float decorated with snow and black iron and blue icicles sticking straight up. He's dressed in a lot of black stuff maybe with bits hanging off, and he rolls down this pole sticking out the front of his float. Of course, with icicles sticking straight up off the pole, he goes through them as well and they go flying and sticking into the general landscape. It seems that this is one way of his taking over the town, because he's the new leader. (Whatever his name was in the dream, he was played by Johnny Depp.)

The float kept moving even after he left it behind to go up a hill to the mansion reserved for the current leader. The pole on the float rammed into the side of the town square and pushed a bunch of ice and stuff up into what was supposed to be a podium on the hill leading to the mansion. Either I or someone else said he was ruining the podium thing, and then we realized it was changing into a big abstract sculpture that was cooler than the podium had been.

So anyways I decide I want to go talk to this leader person, like I have something important to tell him. I think the idea was that I wanted to end up being someone very close to him, and that what I had to say had the power to do that. But as I start walking up the hill, there's suddenly this odd child-sized almost-freaky-puppet-thing that I'm holding with one arm on my hip like I would a child. (It was dressed all in black, very tight clothing.) Apparently this is an after-effect of the leader taking over. I'm not really afraid of this thing, as someone else would be, but I talk to it as we're going up the hill and into the mansion. It seems okay with that.

One of the rooms we pass by has a piano in it, and I walk over and touch some keys. The doll-thing seems unhappy that I leave the piano behind, he pricks me with his fingers wanting to go back (those fingers are sharp, ow!) and I say something like there might be another piano in the new Master's room. So the freakything is appeased for now.

I get to the Master's room and I'm not really sure if the doll-puppet-whatever is still with me, but I'm looking around this big really-goth bedroom and the Master shows up. He's now dressed slightly more formally, like a rich vampire or something, and I don't remember what he or I said but I know we talked about something that wasn't directly related to why I was there. Probably the room decor. At any rate, I started to explain why I'd come...

Then I woke up.
