I'd say symbolic, hilarious, and random =P (Razz)

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!

Also symbolic.

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.

kiwi-sorbet Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2009
my dreams are kinda like premonitions...
and some of them ACTUALLY happened..
freaky, huh
WhiteLilies Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2009
The concept of the dream is usually the same, but the setting is always different. Tho there are some times where it was in the same setting...

I think I met my future love in a dream last night... I don't usually remember dreams, but this one was far to realistic and lucid to forget...

Haha... mine are either terrifying and totally crazy crack dreams or they reoccur. A lot. There will be nights when I dream for a week in a row about tornados (EVIL FRIKIN tornados). It's more than that but I really don't want to geti into explanations now.

I have very vivid, absolutely terrifying dreams. They've been increasing in frequency as I've gotten older.

My favorite dream is one that occurs about once every two or three months; it's been coming to me ever since I was...eight? ten? Something along those lines. It involves underwater skyscrapers topped with giant jellyfish, their tentacles hanging down the whole building so that those individuals inside the buildings move about without touching the walls. My father and I are standing in front of one such walls watching a herd of giant manta rays swim gracefully around the skyscrapers.

That's it. It's really only a snapshot, but it feels like it goes on for hours. And I'm happy that it does, because I miss my father very much and every time the dream occurs, it makes me feel closer to him.

I often have dreams of things that usually will happen in a few days. But then I also have some weird crazy dreams too :)
midnightgem Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2009
I dream about my wishes that I want to come true.

Weird... just plain weird and sometimes reoccuring, but those are mostly nightmares :shrug:
girlsobloody Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2009
My dreams are usually symbolic, very symbolic.
I mostly remember everything that happened in the dream. There's a lot of... action and suspense. Hard to forget. They're mostly... visions. Stuff that would happen very soon. But only with people really close to me (family, friends.) it's weird. I prefer not having them.
sinspawn6969 Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2009
Always fucking terrifying.
Unless they're sexy time. Which wasn't an option.
WillTreaty Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2009
my dreams tell me what i think about the happenings of my day without me even knowing that was what i wanted. but then when i think of it, it is what i want.
greenlint Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2009
all of the above?
lil-shegan Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
Mostly my dreams are forgotten quickly. I usually don't remember my dreams to the point where it seems I don't have any. When I do remember, they tend to be illogical confusing and abstract... even haunting and terrifying.

I used to remember my dreams a lot more as a kid, but they were different. I had some happier dreams once in a while back then. At least the scary ones were really random like made up stories in my mind or something. I guess things change when your life changes. Now I mostly have odd dreams about my father. He passed away almost 3 years ago.

Mine are weird as fuck. They're the super abstract (and always horrific) kind of weird so it's... really difficult to describe.

I'm not fond of the dreams I get, but they're too damned weird to be nightmares. I just wake up and go "WTF?!" or I just don't remember. It's usually the latter. The weirdest part is when you start mixing up dream and reality.
toxindicator Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2009  Student General Artist
and they alwaysalwaysalways rush. i don't know why. i have never had a dream where that rushing stressful feeling wasn't present. MY BRAIN PUMPS TOO MUCH ADRENALINE WHEN I'M NOT CONSCIOUS ADHGKLAHDFG
LeBlah Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2009   Writer
Mine are always of dull, day-to-day things. Classes in school, eating a bag of chips, playing a video game... I used to have interesting ones, but know they've just turned into doing what I do when I'm awake, only while I'm asleep.

Thus, I voted poetic and symbolic.
purplesinger Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2009
I tend to have relatively bizarre dreams. Like, they'll maybe have something to do with whatever is on my mind as I fall asleep, and they make complete and perfect sense when I have them, and then I wake up the next morning going "WTF IS WRONG WITH MY BRAAAIN??? O_O"

I usually can't remember them unless I have the same dream more than once (which I hate because the reoccurring ones are usually freaky) or if it absolutely scared the shit out of me. The nice ones tend to be shadowy by the time I wake up, and I can't hang onto them for long.

i have total unlogical dreams...some days ago i dreamt that i went to tribeka and bought me a coffee for 6,60 €, then went to h&m and bought a tile... kind of, strange... :paranoid:

literal recollections of conscious events
FaintlySmiling Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2009
My dreams don't go in any of those categories.

Mine are long dramatic and movie like. Lol And usually have nothing to do with what's going on in my actual life. xD;

A mixture of all of that actually.
gothic-anomie Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2009
You need an option for 'vivid and realistic AU experiences'

When I go to sleep, I wake up in another place, and go about my day there. It's so vivid and realistic that I often confuse reality and dreamworld.
mymiddlefinger Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2009
i've been dreaming of making sandwiches.
different kinds...

tomato, lettuce, turkey, and swiss
on freshly baked wheat bread, thinly sliced and toasted,
scattered with sea salt.

roast beef with swiss on a hoagie,
where i forget the cheese
and then go back and put it on.
and then i make another.

My dreams are weeeeeeeeeeiiiirrrd. D:>

And I can never figure out how they're connected to my life.

Like...recently...I had a dream about Looney Tunes and cakes...and there was a tooth brush commercial at the end.

And then there was another with this Russian guy and we were in a BJ's and we had a 10 ft. long loaf of bread and Ash Ketchum was there. o__o

And then, when I was younger, I had a dream that me and my brothers were 6 foot tall mice walking on our hind legs and we were following my mom around in a grocery store looking for clothes.

I also get those Deja Vu dreams from time to time.
