MC is a girl confined to her home due to a special power she has: anyone she makes eye contact with immediately goes into a coma.

To be cured, the victim must be left lying exactly where they fell down; the household keeps a bunch of extra pillows and blankets to prop them up and keep them comfortable. As long as they aren't moved, eventually a black lumpy spiky mass will drip out of the ceiling directly above the victim and crawl into their body, upon which they will wake up.


The facility [wizard school?] I was in was being invaded by magical creatures. I was given a pistol, some nonlethal rounds, and a stun gun, and told to keep watch on an open laptop. "Daemons" would ooze out of the laptop's keyboard every so often and I had to knock them out before they entered the facility. The nonlethal rounds were because the daemons were linked to innocent humans who would also die if the daemons were killed.


I cut my left arm open with a cheese grater. Underneath the skin, instead of muscle and bone, there were a bunch of little white flakes [maybe salt?]. I shook my arm and watched with detached interest as the flakes fell out of the newly created holes.



MC is a stereotypical fairytale princess. During her adventures, she finds out that her mother (who she believed went missing soon after she was born) had violated some law of spacetime and became something called the "Crimson Empress".

It was impossible to destroy the Crimson Empress, and acknowledging her existence or other concepts "adjacent" to her (e.g. constellations) would damage the fabric of reality further. The king locked her up in a safe place and spoke to her by having a fortune teller read various omens to interpret her will. Under the king's orders, all communication in the kingdom was monitored and censored as necessary to prevent the universe from collapsing.



A stealth roguelike video game where you play as a completely ordinary dog, who for some reason really wants to reach the bottom floor of a weird underground apartment complex. You have to sneak through each apartment without being seen by the residents (an elderly woman and her three nieces).

For some reason, Kirby was also in the apartment complex. If the human characters caught you, they would just throw you out of the building and you can try again. However, if Kirby spotted you, the game would turn into a terrifying chase sequence where you have to stay out of his reach long enough for him to get bored and go back to sleep, or he would catch and eat you, and you would die permanently.

I have never played a Kirby game in my life. I don't know where this came from.


A woman [with long black hair and robes?] appears on a crowded beach. Even before she says anything, everyone's attention turns to her. In a quiet voice, she orders people with particular characteristics (those wearing a specific piece of clothing, those with birthdays in a specific month, etc) to approach her, issuing a new order every few minutes until most of the people on the beach are surrounding her.

The people on the beach don't seem to be brainwashed - many are uneasy, and two friends in particular crack a joke about her being some kind of weird kidnapper - but all of them obey, and those who weren't called don't do anything to stop the people who were. [I think at some point some people drown trying to reach her and nobody does anything about that either.]

Once the woman is satisfied, she and all the people around her disappear and none of them are ever seen again.


I signed up for some kind of xenobotany course with a focus on "dissecting" a variety of weird plants [with meaty red flowers?]. During the class, I made a vertical cut in a dandelion-like stem and pulled the two sides apart to see inside. The gap stretched impossibly wide, and inside the stem were full-sized potatoes growing from a vine.


MC was being hunted by someone with lightning powers. They were rescued, brought to a hotel-like building, and told to find a room to sleep in for the night. There were no hallways and the rooms just connected directly to each other, so MC crept through a seemingly endless series of identical bedrooms trying to find an unoccupied one, but in each bed was an identical blond person.

Eventually, it was explained that everyone there (including MC) were alternate universe versions of the same person, and the guy with lightning powers wanted to hunt them all down for unspecified reasons.



I was coding a HTML/CSS layout in my dream and then woke up and crawled out of bed to recreate it in real life. Layout & details here.


MC joined an adventuring party or a school treasure hunting club or something. The club leader offered them angel meat; they were reluctant to eat it but the leader assured them that, as a mundane human sitting on one of the club's mundane chairs facing north, there would be no problem. They eat the dish; its taste and texture is exactly like regular store bought meatballs.

A series of increasingly worse short scenes play - MC trying to watch videos in bed but being unable to focus their eyes; various news reports about increasing death and disaster rates; a being voicing concerns about their human growing white mold and another being suggesting they change the human enclosure's prayer candle


MC was talking to a sinister man dressed in formal wear sitting on a bench. When MC pointed out what he was saying made no sense, he became frustrated, liquefied into light blue slime, and jumped into a nearby trash can. His clothes were left sitting on the bench in the exact same pose as before, like an empty shell.

Later, a student sat down on the bench next to the suit. The slime jumped back out of the garbage can and washed over the entire bench; once it cleared, both the suit and student were gone.


A guy was ordered to kill me. They opened their mouth and an endless stream of [grain? rice? worms??] poured forth from it, the idea being it would fill up the room and suffocate me. However, we were standing on a little rope bridge above a giant circular pit with snakes at the bottom, which would take forever to fill up, so we just stood there staring at each other until the scene changed. I was not concerned about my eventual death at all, just deeply embarrassed by the awkward situation.


Dreams from before I started the journal that I still want to feature.


MC was a kid who'd just arrived at a new school. They bumped into a friend who had been the [groundskeeper?] at their middle school, who had now been hired at their new school too. They were excited to catch up and maybe do classes together.

The friend was an "anatomy homunculus" that someone had built to strangle people. It resembled a collage of organs from old-timey medical diagrams, woodcut or wound man style, arranged in a roughly humanoid shape. It was mostly soft organs like brain or intestine, but it towered over MC and had a lanky shape with long limbs. The organs were labeled like countries on a map [not always correctly?]. Its head was a sideways brain with eyes [and teeth?] growing out of the folds roughly where they would be on a human face.

Date Unknown

I was at a capsule hotel and the lobby clerk asked me to fill in for him by sitting behind the desk with a burlap sack covered in eye patterns over my head. If a customer comes by, I was to "sign" what they wanted me to sign with the appropriate eye pattern (I do not know what "signing" would actually entail). I agreed to do this; a while later a customer came over, and from the way they talked it was clear that they thought the bag was my actual head and the eyes were real.

Date Unknown

Zombie apocalypse-type situation where all the water in the world turned into an equal volume of human blood filled with skeletons; the skeletons would crawl out of the blood and try to kill any human they could find. Some pre-existing bones came to life too; one scene showed a museum where bones were rattling in their display cases trying to get out and kill people.
