So I just had this weird dream last night. It seemed to toggle between first person and third person rapidly, thus I can only remember bits and pieces. The dream was a storyline with elements from various sources that I've watched/read/talked about the past few days. It was a mash up of Left 4 Dead, The Sims 2 and even timelady2
's "Aus der Vergangenheit"
story. The latter was in a separate dream though, I guess I made myself dream about Harry after this somewhat nasty dream. :D
Basically, it started out in third person view. There's this couple at a shopping mall, and they were in the carpark. Suddenly the girl sees this man (a Sims 2 character from a video that I watched on YouTube recently) and starts to freak out, can't remember why. The man then sees them and next thing I know, the couple are running for their lives as they're getting shot at by a lot of men in commando-style gear (courtesy of Eoin Colfer's Artemis Fowl
series which I was reading before I went to bed).
They run towards the elevators, and there was this middle-aged Asian (Indian) couple there. The wife (who looked like the Asian lady in Steven Moffat's Jekyll
) seems unperturbed that they're getting shot at and tells them calmly to just get into the elevator. All four of them get in and the doors close. Somehow, those shooters were still far away.
Somehow, instead of going up since they're in a carpark basement, the lady presses a button and the elevator starts to move downwards, going even more underground. (This is when I start to realise that this dream is going to be another end-of-the-world type.) They don't talk, except for the girl who's shivering in fear.
The elevator opens to this brightly lit room (orange lights) and the lady shoos them out and brings the group to an another elevator. They get in, and it starts to descend again. As they move, the lady tells them that 'everything will be explained later' and that they 'have to hurry before they
(bad guys) get to us'.
When the elevator stops and the door opens, they step into this rectangular room that looks like a washroom. The walls are green, the white lights are subdued and there's a row of sinks in front of them. Imagine a typical public washroom, with the sinks outside the cubicles, but now replace the cubicles with an elevator and that's what I dreamt of.
You could sense the urgency in the air. The lady knows something is wrong and tells them to move quickly to the other elevator which is located at the other end of the room. Something is wrong. They start to move, but then suddenly out of nowhere the bad guys burst through a door with their guns raised and trigger happy. The lady yells at them to run, and run they did. They run their hearts out, all four of them, as bullets ricochet around them. It's a nightmare.
They make it to the elevator and rush inside before the lady slams the buttons on the wall to shut the door and move downwards to safety. Everyone is safe, they think, but wait! The girl realises her boyfriend isn't with them. The elevator doors are starting to close, but through the crack, she can see that her boyfriend's been caught. He's laying on the sinks, and this one soldier/bad guy/man with machine gun is shooting him rapidly.
The boyfriend is dead.
The girl screams in horror and fear and rage, but there's nothing she can do. The bad guys have caught up with them, their guns pointing towards the three in the elevator, and their fingers pull the trigger. The girl just stares at the bullets as they move towards her, waiting for the inevitable death that is to come.
And the elevator doors close shut.
You can hear the sounds as the bullets meet the doors, but they are safe. The lady puts her hand on the girl's shoulder and says, 'Everything will be all right.'
Now this is where the dream starts to go crazy. Suddenly, instead of three people in the elevator, there are six. And from third person view, it suddenly becomes first person view. I don't know what character I'm playing, but next thing I know, I'm getting trained as an assassin/super soldier. I distinctively remember how the dream looked like as I was previewing all my weapons, gadgets, other stuff available to me. It seems like it is from some sort of game, but I can't remember. It would have continued on, but then I was told to wake up by my mother.
Anyway, until now, I still don't know why those bad guys were shooting at us, or why the bloody hell I was being trained as an assassin or super soldier, but I think I was told in the dream. It's just that I can't remember. Maybe some crazy despot was taking over the world? Who knows.
What I do know, after that dream (I went back to sleep after being told to get up), I had another one. Now this was full of deja vu. I was dreaming that I was reading, no, watching would be a more appropriate word, the next chapter of timelady2
's current story on FanFiction, "Aus der Vergangenheit"
or "From the Past"
. She uploaded Chapter 9 yesterday, and it ended somewhat in a cliffhanger where Harry finds out that Nikki's on anti-depressants.
In my dream, Nikki says that she isn't taking those anti-depressants, she only has them because her friend gave it to her. Apparently, her friend was in some sort of play where he was playing a mentally ill guy and he gave those pills to Nikki for safekeeping. Harry somehow believes her.
Very weird, but it won't be the first time. Somehow, I always dream about Harry/Nikki fanfiction that I just read. Especially if I read the story before going to bed or the authors haven't updated their story.
Oh well. That was one long post to write. To add to the weirdness, I had to listen to f(x)'s Chu
song (talked about f(x) on Facebook before I went to bed) to recall this memory as I wrote this. :\
