Creepy Cool Castles

Dreams 05.31.17

Feels like it’s been a couple of weeks since I last recalled a dream so things are not detailed at all, and most likely not in the right order.

I remember there being a portal of some sort, that’s a certainty. One side of the portal led to what I can only describe as a hipster wedding / bake and yard sale hosted in the circular courtyard of a castle. The environment was cool, overcast and damp. The ground was moss covered dirt and the surrounding stone walls were light grey and clean but weathered.

I’m sure I got this imagery from a horror movie where Daniel Craig plays a doctor / (spoiler alert) Baron who experiments on his virginal daughter / wife-reincarnate. There’s a scene where everyone is participating in a candlelight vigil type ritual with flowong hooded white robes. It all culminates with a final ritual in the middle of a circular, tall, stone courtyard. It’s probably not the right word for it but that’s where the portal led.
The other side of the portal I am pretty sure led to just an alternate universe. I believe one side, the people were still the same people I knew, but they did rituals to summon unnatural forces to obtain their goals. There was a creepy, maybe I need to circumvent their plans feel to many parts of the dream. There were also times when I, along with a friend who at that point in the dream was my ally, snuck around as not to be seen by the people we “knew” but they were the summoners, acting out their secret ritual. We knew that if they caught us right then, they would not recognize us as a part of their world because there would be that-world equivalents of us. We didn’t know the exact consequences but it felt deadly.

On the nicer side of the portal, me and this friend (don’t know who it is supposed to be in real life, not even in the dream), we roamed around the bake sale. I saw a tray of yummy checkerboard and spiral patterned, gooey cakey chocolate brownie things. I was definitely going to buy one but the vendor was nowhere in sight so I decided to whip out the old phone camera to post on Instagram. When I finally got into the app to line up my shot, I saw on the screen, my perfectly yummy composition ruined as the nicest piece of cake, the piece I was going to take, lifted out of frame. I looked up to see this arrogant but dapper asshole putting the cake on his own plate. He looked at me like, “What?” and turned to go pay someone for it. I thought I heard him mutter something to the effect of “you snooze you lose”.

Overnight Shift at the Bus Depot

Dreams 11.08.12
I arrived at a bus depot just after sunset. There was still a glow in the sky but it was getting dark very fast. I was driven in a tiny compact car, along with a friend (a girl that I can’t pinpoint if real or not) by our boss.

He dropped us off and swiftly drove off the the offices while my friend and I just kind of twiddled our thumbs not really sure what we were supposed to do. The bus depot was a big property. Most of the buses were parked far away from the entrance so we only saw them from a distance. I guess we were supposed to move around buses to their respective spots and just work security throughout the night.

At one point, my friend was at the far end of the lot just making rounds. I was right by the entrance and could see her, small and tiny in the distance. We looked at each from far away and just knew that right now was the time for a silly game. I knelt down beside the entrance lane with both arms out in front of me and made loud obnoxious, race announcer sounds. She ran like the wind towards my “finish line” and when she crossed we both cheered.

Later on in the night, our boss came up to us and told us we needed to head over to a parking lot owned by the same company that operated the bus depot. He led us towards a dark tunnel which was a bridge/teleport between the depot on the outskirts of town right to the city. I remember being pretty facinated by this and I was skipping and hopping as we approached the pitch black tunnel.

When we arrived at a small corner parking lot, the boss told us we had to be valets, park and move cars around all night long. I walked through half the parking lot to get to a car I was supposed to move. I also remember seeing my friend Big Head who seemed to be impressed by my valet job. I remember backing up and moving a few cars, mostly compacts but that’s all I can recall.
