i had a real weird dream a couple nights ago with a castle with a lava floor, and jousting, but i dont think it’s related to the flu shot i got lol.
nice! that sounds very zelda-ish. I seem to specialize in weird dreams, and they get weirder the sicker I am. the most involved fever dream I ever had happened when I was 14, and I somehow managed to simultaneously contract walking pneumonia and influenza b (wtf, self). I had such a high fever that I couldn’t reliably distinguish my dreams from reality, and I dreamt that I was fighting five vampires from one of Terry Pratchett’s books, plus Glaurung, a dragon from the Silmarillion and one of the biggest douchecanoes in all of Tolkien’s works. I was asked to rescue a baby from the vampires by the baby’s mother, a beautiful young woman in a diaphanous nightie (my subconscious figured out I liked girls way before I did) and so I was getting all pumped up to take on five vampires and a dragon mano e mano when my mom woke me up.
basically: when I’m really sick, my brain writes elaborate crossover self-insert fanfiction.
being sick sucks, but my fever dreams are seriously amazing. I have the mini-flu that I always get from the flu shot (it sucks, but it sucks much less than the real flu), and couldn’t go to class or hold office hours today. while I was sleeping, I had a very involved, lengthy dream in which I had to solve a zelda-style dungeon (figure out puzzles to open doors, basically) and save a baby, and also captain america was there, briefly (????????????). like. wow! what a dream
