Fever dreams

The last couple days, I've been down with something. I don't know what. Whatever it is, it has raised my body temperature, given me small annoying aches in various places of my body, and given me fever dreams, I think. Well, what I do know about the dreams is that they're hard to describe, having things to do with other dimensions that Lovecraft might have written about, and they feel like they keep going all night long; I get up to piss then go back to bed, and I return to the dreams I was having before.

I say I think this is a fever dream because once, when I was still living with my parents, I had a bad fever and the dreams from it were all night long, bizarre, and exhausting. One of them had my brain being a network hub for the Internet, and I had to concentrate on getting every little piece of data where it was supposed to be. I don't remember the other. But the dreams of last night and the night before last are vaguely similar to that one. I'm not being forced to do hard labor in them, but I *am* being taken on a series of bizarre rides that I can hardly begin to describe.

I will say this: I think I know why I'm getting vaguely Lovecraftian dreams. Because I've been working on the Duenicallo worldview, their history and so on, and their worldview is inspired in part by Lovecraft's works. To them, the universe is unfathomably old, may have gods-know-what kind of monsters lurking in the void, and is cold and uncaring. Yet their attitude is a mixture of pessimism and defiance. Life on the continent of Ahbahss was horrible for the longest time, and their hardships kind of became permanently ingrained into their psyche.

Daaaaammmmnnn,,,,
That sounds like pretty much the normal for what Michelle causes to do with me, every time I go to sleep.

Also... when I mentioned that being in the Blackrom areas of the Dreamscape twist you? That was kind of most of it. It Molly Elizabeth keeps jumping into there, those dreams will increase in frequency and intensity. That likely is an influence on the matter.

Either way, let me know when these tone down. I want to ensure it is not Molly Elizabeth and/or Michelle's influence.

Well last night's dreams were fairly normal. (Note the original post was written yesterday.) There were two or three distinct dreams last night. One was something about a train, and another involved some overweight guy playing badminton for some reason.

Ah, okay.

You might want to mention Molly Elizabeth needs to only go into the Blackemo Dreamscape sparingly. If she complains make it be a once a month event (if she behaves).

I'll ask Michelle to figure out possible ways to clean the effects of being there off of the body.

Maybe do a form of spiritual cleansing ceremony when you have nightmares in the possibility they are Blackemo Dreamscape related ones.

Michelle is doing scouting missions to figure out the best items to include in such a ritual.

I don't really have nightmares. I have a lot of dreams that other people might consider nightmares, but I only count it a nightmare if it scares me during the dream. Which doesn't happen often anymore. I've had a lot of dreams of terrifying-looking monsters and horror story stuff, but it is like watching a scifi movie: interesting, but not scary or even concerning. I can count on one hand the number of genuine nightmares I've had in the last couple years.

But don't let that stop you; the cleansing ritual may still be something to do for the hell of it.

Well, you don't strike me as the sort that would be bothered by the general Hammer Horror crowd. Or even a more Horrific Horror Crowd.

Still... -shrug- feels weird me just accepting you being in the Blackemo areas of the Dreamscape. Like you should go for some vaguely better location.
