Subject says it all!

I had a strange one recently, though most of my dreams aren't at all based in common reality, this one stood out not only because it felt like I was in a situation that could happen (in non-dream standards, mind you), but I was also me at an age of I think around 12-13. It also featured my little sister, around the age of 7 or 8 (her current age).

Basically what happens is that our mother who I can only assume is the last surviving of her family dies, and we were left to go live with our older adoptive sister. This is all assumed, as in this is kind of the context I was feeling while in the dream, why things were happening, why I was there. Our older adoptive sister was an anthropomorphic possum though she didn't dress the same way I believe it was based on the main character from a webcomic called 'habits' or 'clementine' as some call it on vice because she was basically homeless. We walked around a downtown area of a medium sized city as she would drink alcohol and flip off cars that passed us by, edging us on to do so with her. I would, but my little sister wouldn't. Then she bought us slushies, poured alcohol into mine and I got drunk with her while my little sister just drank a normal slushy, after that I woke up.

I liked it, felt like I was having fun in the dream in the innocent way a kid at that age would despite the shitty situation.

I had a dream where a giant golden starfish that slept underground for a billion years woke up and waged a war against humanity. It smelled like sulfur, and all the little legs on the bottom (see pic related) were long and agile and had suckers on them, like octopus tentacles. It was fucking creepy as shit.

Had this one Saturday night.
Some girl and I were laying in my mothers bed, don't know where she came from or how we got there, but, we were going to do the deed. I started caressing her and then went in for a long kiss. As I was kissing her, I heard all sorts of demonic shit in the background and when I finally get up to look at her, she just smiles and turns into ashes and the whole room goes black. My dream also blacks out at this point. It seams that I usually jump from dream to dream, but I vaguely remember seeing her in in some of them as well.
Turns out that she's some sort of demon from the Underworld coming to wage war on the overworld. Then I jump to another dream. Now I'm in some sort of classroom taking shelter from the chaos with a bunch of other people. The demon girl apparently left the bloody head of a cow in the room as a symbol denoting I am not to be messed with by other demonic forces. The professor throws it outside because it's stinking up the room and shit. We begin moving the tables and chairs around to make a barrier when a strong thump comes from the ceiling. Demon girl breaks through and drops down like those super hero landings all with fist on the ground.
She sensed that the sacrifice wasn't with me anymore and asked if I was okay and held me in her arms. It was at this point were I had a much better look at her in detail. She looked older than me (21), at most 35 yo, and 6'2" judging by her towering over me. Long black hair, green eyes, and literally half naked. Sort of like the way Slan from berserk dresses, tits free.
Demon girl is getting ready to head out again to the fight, when I tell her to stay and to stop the battle. To which she says, "Don't worry, this will be my last battle, just for you. I'll be back."
She never returns.
After a while the outside world goes completely fucking silent. I walk out to check and everything is grey with ash and rubble everywhere. I think I was channeling a bit of Dresden during WWII. I eventually find her dead pale body and pick it up. Carry her away princess style and the dream ends.

God I wanna see her again, I've never felt this much emotion in a dream before.
tl;dr - Random girl almost 15 years older than me I wanted to bang but didn't bang turns out to be demon and then she dies.

A.K.A: Share your blogpost about a nightmare you've had.

Lemme star by talking about mine, which for some reason, always seem to be disjointed for some reason. Had these yesterday.

First nightmare was me having a conversation to this sort of cockroach with human, slanted eyes with a mouth (kind of similar to David Cronenberg's Naked Lunch), about dissecting a human corpse, which was on a tiny table and was only a torso with a couple of organs with it's head and one arm cut off. As i was doing the operation, the cockroach thing kept talking to me about some non-sense i forgot, while blood kept spurting on my hands inside the human corpse's carcass.

Second one was me starting at the bottom of a sterile, white staircase (which i suppose was a hospital?), which had a backdoor of some sort. When i opened it, there was a large city road that had two groups of crowded people in different sides, arguing about some religion thing; one dude that was from the left side of the street, which was somebody i personally knew, started to fight with the other group which was on the right. Hugged him in an attempt to restrain him from getting his shit fucked by the mob of angry people, and pulled him inside the (what i suppose is) hospital's backdoor and locked it. He was lying unconscious on the floor, as i hopelessly tried to wake him up.

I also had another recurrent nightmare.

Me and my family were walking towards some theme park and, to get there, we would have to walk upwards one of those swirly roads typical of parking buildings (or whatever they're called).
Most of the dream would be spent walking upwards.
At the end, we would see theme park, bright lights, fortune wheels and everything. All we had to do to get there is jump over a small ditch.

The ditch itself was very short, but it went very deep (all the distance we had climbed). Everyone jumped over it without problems, until it was my turn.
As I jumped, the ditch suddenly seemed longer than what I expected, and I'd fall to the pit. The vertigo always woke me up, and it'd feel as if I was being crushed against my bed afterwards.

I had an intense nightmare last night.
It's a bit hard to explain.
I was a child of 9 or 10 years in my dream.
I was dreaming (Yes, I was dreaming in my dream), in this dream my sister told me a very strange dream that she had about me, I also told her a dream that I had, in which I went to her room, and She was lying with part of her body on the bed, she was probably dead, half her head was missing, but there was no blood anywhere.
She laughed, and left my room.
At that moment I wake up (in my dream) and went to her room to her the strange dream I just had.
I found her lying just like in my dream, had been brutally murdered and there was blood all over the bed. It was pretty graphic.

At that moment I realized that my dream was a premonition.
I found my mother crying desperately.
At that moment he woke up and did not fall asleep all night.

I hope my English would be legible enough.

I'm >>705, the starfish dude.
Last night I dreamed that I went fishing with a buddy. I caught a MASSIVE parasitic worm, it was like 7 feet long. It looked like a dark brown grub, with two long shiny black curved pincers. Kinda like a bobbit (not gonna post a pic, google it). As you may imagine I tried to throw that shit back as fast as I possibly could. Unfortunately, as I was whipping it around it smacked my friend into the water. I guess it laid eggs in him or something, because later he had big lumps on his back where grubs were living just under the skin. I had to cut him open with a fishing knife and try and pull the small white grubs out, but they kept trying to burrow their way deeper so I had to reach in after them to pull them out, while still being careful not to get bit by them.

I was visited by death and hell in a dream and as yet I haven't uttered this to a single soul. On recollection hades was very much alive, I witnessed a place of worship filled with parishioners with such goings on that I am still frightened to even give them breath, much less type them out for a lasting record. Frightened not of myself with its recollection , I experienced it and must live with it, but that the reader of such nightmares mighten not be able to contain the story, and that it may well be a curse best kept to myself. Or privilege? Or too personal for others. The blasphemic isn't for everybody after all. Or that this might be its interpretation by others. There is no blasphemy within this domain. Peculiar to visit there, I was not asked if I should like to and was transported there unknowing of the journey I was to take.

If my armchair education of dream psychoanalysis means anything than I'd suggest you to examine your behavior towards women around you and your history with them.
If you happen to be very shy and have little to do with the other sex besides pornography, then it might warp your idea of women and this idea might have gotten through in your dreams.
(Sorry if this sounds like an accusation, it's not meant as offense, I'm just speculating.)

Wish you good dreams.

That happened to me once, a while ago. I kept waking and waking up in my dream(s) to the point that I screamed "I am stuck in between dimensions help me." After waking up irl I had to check if I was still in a dream. I actually enjoyed it. I love colorful calm dreams but nightmares are also welcome.

I can't say that I've ever woken up inside a nightmare multiple times. I've had false awakenings before, but those were always very mundane.
A nightmare that really stood out to me was one I had when I was about 15 or so, when my room was next to my sister's room. I dreamt that she was some kinda cannibal necromancer that had killed my entire family and cut them into pieces arranged around her room, and reanimated or kept them animated. Then she spread her legs and there was nothing there except clear plastic piping like you'd find in your plumbing or something. There was just such a sense of disgust I had when I woke up that I wanted to puke. I could smell the viscera and gore and feel it in my hands, see it squirming and gasping. I have a feeling it really messed up my psyche because now I have very involved dreams about my sister and death

No.704

I get in little loops, but it's never a big deal. Just falling asleep inside a dream and waking up on different "layers." If it gets really confusing, sometimes I end up thinking I'm in the real world and end up living for months or even years, and make relationships and learn and grow and all that, but then I wake up for real and only 10 real minutes have passed. It's discombobulating.

I've been noticing recurring locations in my dreams lately. Being able to recognize them has helped me go lucid a few times. I wonder if it's worth trying to map them out? Here's some of the more common/familiar ones.
>the neighborhood I grew up in the dead of night, but all the trees have glowing purple flowers on them. When I can lucid dream in this place, flying is very difficult. I always feel like I'm being pulled downwards by my ankles. It's like I can jump very high and drift around, but not actually fly. I'm sure you know the feeling.
>A wide, fast-moving river with cottonwoods on the banks. I always start at the same place, but there's always something new downstream. I also tend to lose lucidity as I drift downstream. I usually end up in a canoe. This location is rather unique in that I always remember how I physically traveled to it; either I was running through the forest when I came to a tributary, or I was going on a trip with my old boy scout troop, or something like that. The sky is usually bright, but overcast with stratus clouds.
>A two-lane road on the side of a mountain. On one side is the steep slope rising up, on the other side is a beautiful, wide green valley. The sun is always incredibly bright here and directly overhead. There's something very captivating and beautiful about the simple blueness of the sky, there's never a cloud. There's a little patch of grass on the side of the road with a big rock on it. I often park my car there and just lay down in the grass and just stare up at the sky. Once I got to see the sunset there, and it remains as one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.
Do you folks have recurring locations in your dreams? What are they like, do they mean anything?

wew it finally happened

I had fallen asleep on the couch after just having finished the 2001 cowboy bebop movie (It started out well enough but fell off towards the middle. overall I wouldn't recommend it) and some ice cream.

the dream took place in my house at night very dark, only a dim light was on in my kitchen which is where I was. I need to explain something really quick, IRL there is a facility relatively close to my home that works on airplane engines and when they test them you can here it for miles. It basically sounds like a normal airplane passing overhead but kinda different, its more rhythmic and it goes on for hours. It used to scare me as a child because I didn't know what it was.

So in the dream this sound was going but it was much much louder than it is in reality. I was a little on edge because of this and one of my dogs was also visibly frightened. My other dog was not present in the dream. The sound got louder and louder and now it sounded like a lawnmower was right outside my house. So that made me think there was someone mowing my lawn right out the window in front of me. I ducked down behind the kitchen counter so that he wouldn't be able to see me. I suddenly had a cup of boiling water in my hand to use to splash on him if he came in. I thought about going to get my gun but I didn't want to move and be seen.

Then I had a thought this man capturing me and my brother and brutally torturing us. We were tied up and hanging from a tree and he had those giant tree branch clippers and was cutting off our limbs. This scene was somewhat disturbing and gruesome but was not the nightmare part.

>>612 (Continued)

Then I was back in the kitchen. The sound had moved off so I stood up to peek out the window and in the corner of the room, near the window where my dog was laying in his bed before, there was an 8-10 foot silhouette of a very muscular humanoid demon with wings and horns. It looked kinda like the included image but 1000x scarier. Also its wings were folded in not outstretched like the image. As soon as I stood up it started hastily walking towards me and closed the 20 foot distance between us almost instantly. When it got to me it reached it arms out and grabbed me and lifted me up by the neck. I was struggling to breath.

As soon as it got me the dream ended and I was thrown into this sort of semi-conscious limbo state, it was just blank greyness. I thought it was sleep paralysis at first because I couldn't move and kept trying too. I tried opening my eyes but I couldn't and didn't even have a body which led me to realize that it wasn't sleep paralysis but didn't know what it was. I kept struggling and trying to move and eventually it felt like I was moving. Soon after I woke up breathing heavily and trembling. It felt like I was there really long time but in reality it probably wasn't more than a few minutes.
Looking back on it now I guess it was a technically a lucid dream at that point but I just wasn't conscious enough to really take control of things

I hope this was a somewhat coherent read and apologize if it wasn't as I am not very good with my words.

All in all it was an interesting experience and wouldn't mind if it happened to me a bit more often. Obviously I don't want it to happen every night but maybe once a month or so.
Is it strange that I desire this? We humans enjoy a good spooking every now and then- if we didn't the horror genre wouldn't exist correct?

Very coherent, and a good read. I'm glad this finally happened for you. And by the sound of it, it really happened hard lmao. (And the sleep paralysis combo)

Being frightened releases endorphins which make us feel kind of good, alive. Especially for the unstimulated and sedentary, deviation from the norm via a shock really can put things in to perspective.

Scary movies, too much sugar, all the stuff your parents told you to avoid.
I don't get nightmares very often, but they are usually much more vivid than my regular dreams. And even when I do get them, it is even rarer that they will wake me up. I think the scariest dreams are when you attain a slight amount of lucidity, but not enough to gain control. Feeling like you've been pit against your own mind is a very scary feeling. I usually get it when I'm just drifting off.

I once had a dream that was really vivid. In it I was in love with a classmate that I hadn't seen in several years. I never spent much time thinking about her back then but did think she was kind of cute I guess.

Waking up from the dream it was like my body had sent out the actual "love-chemicals" that you get when you fall in love with someone for real. For the rest of the day I stalked her on facebook and couldn't stop thinking about how bizarre it all was, that the feeling of love didn't go away after waking up. The feeling did eventually pass towards the end of the day.

Anyone ever had something similar happen to them?
