In My Dream, Don as Spock is Dead - The Life and Thoughts of Zach

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

Holy crap! I just dreamed duck2ducks died.

He was trying to fix a breach in the space time continuum inside a U-haul type trailer and he had to flee from something and tried to climb up the walls and just got stuck at the top. After he was missing for a while we had to use our "vulcan body locators" to find him. These were two levitating boxes on leashes that naturally pulled towards some person (living or dead) that they were tuned to (permanently, each person, or at least each vulcan person had a pair of these). When we opened the trailer we couldn't see him in there until we saw footprints going up the side of the wall and then a body stuck up in the corner of the ceiling. The body was a burned plastic shell of a Spock manequin.

I was with a huge group of people that had just been at some other person's funeral and I'd been taking care of everybody. When I got on the phone with my sister to tell her what happened I broke down just _screaming_ _bawling_. I couldn't stand, I couldn't hold the phone. I was a mega wreck. Wiliam was in the crowd and commented wryly (but really nicely, he was trying to distract the group from the fucked situation with a light remark) "I suppose he gets the right to break down since we've all been breaking down around him all weekend" (because of the other funeral which was for like everyone's (but not mine) collective grandmother or something).

Someone who lived with Don (not William) was deluded into thinking that Don had died by trying to hack payperview and that it was his own fault for messing with something illegal that he didn't understand. I was so angry at this person. Hello, big difference between mending space time and stealing cable.

I think this dream was probably partly driven by the shocking news that a close friend of Daria's (Daria is my roomate) just today had a grand mal seizure. She's never had a seizure or any other neurological problem in her life. She doesn't have a tumor or any problems with her blood. She's seeing a neurologist in Chicago tomorrow so until then there's no way to know what is wrong with her. That that kind of thing could happen to someone with NO history of ANY health problems was pretty scary to have hit so close to home.

Once again a GOOD FEELING waking up to realize it Just Wasn't Real.

Holy crap! I just dreamed duck2ducks died.

My eye started reading that line at "ducks2ducks died" and my heart was in my throat before I managed to start at the beginning of the line and realised it was all a dream......

I know, you very cleverly conveyed exactly that feeling!

Those dreams are uncanny aren't they? - The ones where something terrible happens and for a few seconds after you wake, you totally believe it occurred, and then there's that overwhelming sense of relief when you realise it was just a dream. Those are powerful moments, when you come face to face with how you'd really feel in the face of disaster or loss.

Yes! I have those moments all the time.

I only ever hope that I'm as passionate in times of crisis in real life as I seem to be in my dreams.

Whoa - and yet, parts of that dream are really really funny.

You've been having dreams about friends dying somewhat frequently, eh?

Hmmm, hacking payperview, eh? I'll have to look into that...

Yah it's weird. Especially since I never really dream about my friends very often. Most of my dreams are about strangers and distant acquaintances.

In a way I think the dreams imply an increasing closeness to my friends. I mean I've certainly been spending more quality time with you lately and talking to Angela a lot.

I think I've got a lot of deep fears/uncertainties about my upcoming career change that are working themselves out too.

methinks this is a scary trend
good thing you only think I look like a hairless rat - he's already dead - you can't hurt him
hehehe (he would have actually appreciated that humor - so don't get too upset)

Well in a way I think it's good in that the dreams are showing me how much I care for the people I'm dreaming about and they're showing me that I've got some fears (who doesn't!) about major life changes. And they're just good heart stopping drama!

Well, there's the first problem.
Where was his pocket knife and piece of twine?
Geesh.
