Ok, so the dream to start is a little vague, there is a party at mom’s house and tons of people are there. It’s something like a 4th of July party we always have. I think somehow the party is for me. Birthday or my coming back or something. It’s a bit vague, but comes important later. The main thing I do remember is trying tog et the old video game systems to work. There was a kinda niceish basement entertainment center they all were. I spent much of my time schmoozing and getting the games to work and getting people to play them.
As for the guests, somehow all my major relationships were there and pretty happy to see me. I was a bit shocked to see my first girlfriend there, but I worked on keeping everyone all happy and occupied for the most part. Me and the first girl had a bit of catching up to do, since it’d been a very long time since we’d seen each other.
The second thing that ended up happening was that my Nemesis joined the party. He somehow convinced my brother that this was *his* party as he was off to the Chaosrealms and may never be heard from again. I may have just gotten back from there actually. I ragequitted the party and tried to sleep in the park across the street. The cold from the fan on me probably had something to do with me dreaming I was sleeping outside.
Anyway, I went back and the party was winding down. My video games were being played. largely not by me or my friends as the Nemesis had taken over. The exes were all standing around somewhat uncomfortable. It was at this point that I screamed the most visceral scream I think I have ever done. Twice. It was like on all fours screaming on the ground with everything I had.
When that was wrong I remember the First being there, doing that comforty thing that people do. We knew we had to leave. The Nemesis was done, and he was toying with me now. Somehow he had set it up to ruin everything I had. So we both fled. We caught up a bit on things. She mentioned how she had left a string of broken hearts behind her, and went from toying to lamenting, I had a bit of a vision of her going to slutdom, but remembered my own decent and decided we were ok.
So we fled, to a mallish area, where the Nemesis caught up to me and began mocking me. I was doing something like trying to run the wrong way up an escalator (I think he was controlling it somehow). He seemed to be hovering a bit over me, whether he was an apparition or not I don’t really remember. I let him know I knew what he was doing. He said no one ever believe me, no one ever does. I told him that he hadn’t replied to the MySpace message I sent him in weeks. He freaked out, apparently social media was his weakness, so he left to go check on the abandoned site. Meanwhile I managed to scale the nonmoving parts of the escalator and caught up with the First.
I knew the plan now, it was time for us to attack. There was some sort of themepark version of a villians lair nearby so we went there. There were a few challenges we had to pass at first. The one that really stuck out in my head was having to walk under a pool of some sort of burning acid. There was a little box type thing we had, and as long as we stood up and kept walking it would be fine. The First was a bit nervous, but I reminded her that we’ll be fine since she’s already walked through Death once to get me, walking through this together would be nothing.
The lair itself was set up cinematically like a movie reenactment. The guests were lined up along the back and the action happened in the front. This one was about the climactic final battle. Fitting. The first phase, we were all given knives, we were then being psychokenitically controlled, or maybe magnetically, either way, the knives we wanted to deposit in the boss were trying very hard to deposit themselves in our neighbors. I remembered this part from my previous encounter and held the knives sharp edge out along my forearms for the most control and told the First to do so as well.
After that phase, things start to get blurry. There was another phase that may have involved some sort of firehose/ectoplasm spray or something. I didn’t pay too much attention to it really. I knew the Nemesis was weakening, I woke up shortly after. I kinda blame the Duane and Brand0 Double Dragon video I was watching right beforehand, and the Haunted Sorority House dungeon in KoL immediately before that.
The second dream was far less fun. I was back in class with a special guest teacher, I still had all my notes. In fact I had notes from 5th grade where this teacher originally taught us (somehow in 2000), and was all proud and trying to show them around. That was mostly it. The difficulties were in actually finding the right notes, reading my handwriting, damaged notes, the usual dream stuff that prevents you from remembering details.
