My dreams are getting weirder.

I must be nervous 'bout the approaching trip to Japan.
Last night, worms ate the world.

Feel free to skip the rest.

It all started with space snails. Wait, no. It all started with trains, and then there was that thing about the cannibalistic Santa in the united states, and his demented family. Then, the trains, and the snails. They were sort of dirty gray with flat mouths and many eyes. They also were hundreds of feet long, around 10ft wide and there were hundreds of them.

Their presence was kept in secret, so I assume the Powers-That-Be must have already given up on the planet.

Apparently some sort of a rescue/evacuation plan was in effect, as the trains seemed to dock directly into some sort of a space ship ( Which was already in space!! Dream logic. ) Bruce Campbell had a cameo role here, and that's when my superpowers came back online. Thank you, Bruce!

Let me 'splain... No, that'd take too long, let me sum up: Wayback I used to fiddle 'round with Lucid Dreaming, and as a consequence, I ended up with a sort of a "standard" set of superpowers, probably stolen from the X-Men: Telekinesis which goes on-and-off, ability to walk through... well, most objects. Sometimes they seem hard or sort of viscous, but it's a matter of concentration, and flight. There are others, but I expect to have at least those, and am vaguely disappointed when I wake up.

Still, the snails weren't that bad compared to the worms. Apparently the snails were what these humongous translucent polypoid worms fed on, and so they came. They were big, huge, stretching from horizon to horizon, impossibly long and quite impressive. Also very very fast.

I decided I couldn't just abandon the rest of the planet, so I travelled back to my hometown. There, people didn't yet know about what had happened, but of course, soon I could see a mass flowing across the horizon. I couldn't just let them be, so I launched my Finger Beams ( Didn't know I had any. Dream logic... ) which didn't have a visible effect. I've always had trouble with rays and blasts and such, perhaps because those came AFTER I learned to do this stuff - they're always sort of illusionary compared to other stuff.

As a response, the worms released some spores, which caused one of them to develop into a... it was either a Fusion worm or a Fission worm. In any case, a bright red set of globes which was apparently very dangerous somehow. ( The Russians had apparently decided to use nukes to take one of them out. As a consequence, hundreds of worms had died, but so had the country. )

In any case, I trapped it with my TK, and then had to combine a fusion worm with a fission worm. ( Don't remember which was which. The other worm was sort of yellow. ) This caused the sky turn black, or very dark blue-gray, in a huge area, which actually managed to lure the worm's natural enemy, this sort of orange-y sky-filling Cthulhoid starfish to the planet.

And that's when I woke up more-or-less. I was left sort of worried if we'd now have to take care of the starfish thing after it was done with the worms, but it would probably just leave the planet after it was done. Yays.

Maybe the title should've been, "When I saved the planet from ginormous worms" Instead, but that's not as fun.

I might've told more 'bout the Cannibalistic Santa, but it was creepier and more dream-like, and not as interesting as the worm-thing IMO.

If it's any consolation, it sounds like a perfectly normal dream to me.

Stuff like butterflies folding their wings and turning into people, and getting into your car to see a hungry lion in the passenger seat...

And then the dream cuts to the next scene where the lion's driving and you're seatbelted in the passenger side, all bandaged up and looking quite bewildered....

Well, yeah. The cutting and direction in dreams is generally surreal. This one was one of those really vivid ones, but I've been having extra-vivid dreams almost every night for a bit over a week now.
