My dreams tend to be epic movies that I'm living, sometimes right down to the gutwrenching pain of being injured or shot or whatever in the dream. Often I wake up and it takes a while to figure out that it was just a dream and where I am now is the reality, not the dream. Very disorientating when I was someone very not myself in the dream.

Terrifying. But hilarious. Occasionally include Ben Stiller breaking into my house and purple tornadoes with three faces on them.

Mine are usually random, hilarious and last a long time.
You couldn't have put in an "All of the above" option?

My dreams vary from candy land to my father shooting me in the palm and in the head. That puts me at both ends of the spectrum.

Although, I usually get the dream where I'm kicking a can and everything is in slow motion except for my thoughts. Have you ever heard a can bouncing in slow motion??? It's torture!

Neither. They are mostly coherent and fantastic, often very exciting and very very rarely bad at all. (And even if they are bad, they don't leave me with that icky Nightmare feeling afterward.)

I've dreamed up great adventures.

Nightmares. No dreams.:(
My dreams have evolved over time and slowly become more meaningful and deep.
When i was young they were often violent, random and meaningless but as iv'e grown older and learn't to think for myself and realize how important it is to be myself and have pride for one self they have become more meaningful and often tell me what my subconscious wants me to over-come and achieve.
My last dream was very symbolic, I think. My ex finally conquered his insecurities (his irrational fear that I will hurt him) and came back to me. We were happy together for about half a day. Then a storm blew in, we were on a ship that was struck by another ship in the storm, and the ship was sinking. I woke up right before I/we died. He may have lived.
