Yeah, so, I felt like posting today. Mix things up a bit. Have some unscheduled fun! And I've been so lax in commenting back to you guys (see the comment section of the past TWO blogs if you commented recently) and reading blogs has fallen behind math problems of no eternal consequence.
Anywho, I had these bizarre dreams last night that I wanted to share. In the first one, I was on the set of the last Harry Potter movie. I don't know who I was playing, perhaps an unknown professor? Or maybe Charlie Weasley's secret girlfriend? Anyway, I was wandering through Hogwarts behind another professor when they stopped and said, "Oh no! Neville's dead!" I freaked out and started performing CPR on him and he started laughing. The director yelled, "CUT!!" and Neville and I sat in the floor, surrounded by the carnage of Voldemort's army, laughing. When I asked him why he was laughing, he said it was just really funny to have someone slapping him around, telling him to wake up when he wasn't really dead.
The next dream was interesting. It basically recreated the story of Sleeping Beauty. It was really enjoyable, considering in my mind the whole "happy-yippie-skippy-Disney" version was no where to be found. There were no songs, no dancing, and thank GOD no multi-colored fairy godmothers. In my mind, fairy tales should have been left to the Grimm Brothers. There was a handsome, scruffy, Aragorn-esque dude instead of a prince and Alan Rickman starred as the evil sorcerer. I woke up before I could see the end but I think it turned out to be pretty good.
In fact, I'm thinking of spending some time free-writing it to see where it goes.
This isn't the first time I've had a story come to me in a dream. Tell me, have YOU ever dreamed a story into being? And if so, did you drop all your other projects to work on it, or did you write it down and tuck it away for a rainy day. Am I the only person out there who is cast in Harry Potter movies in their dreams or who has Alan Rickman show up as villains? Just curious...
