When I dream I tend to have different "stories" for different moods...or when I get bored with one story I can think about another. I suppose I have three different stories going on right now inside my mind. For me stories can go on for months on end; where I develop myself as one of the characters, my friends, and significant other, along with children and a career pretty elaborately.
My fantasies range from wealthy queen to unimportant peasant girl. From primitive time all the way to futurist time with space ships and space pirates. All very different and very exciting. Once I get bored with a certain plot I either start over and try to spice it up or start a whole new adventure all together. I've notice I do come back and retry situations in my head also.
So my first fantasy or my "main" obession right now is I'm married to the hottest man in the country :) 6'5 muscular, extremely funny, loving, he's "amaranian" which in my mind is a race of super human with tails lol idk how I came up with that but we have children, grand children, and are both top business/superstars in the united states, we travel, go on vacations, fight, make love. This particular daydream I've been indulging in for almost a year. Characters are very well developed, traits, characteristics, looks and even clothing style has been laid out. Setting is in chicago but I frequently visit new york city, china, japan, and britian for business. My character is a very beautiful successful woman who even though very is confident and successful on the outside has battled many issues on the inside which over time she has been able to overcome with the help of her friends, family and determination.
My second fantasy is of myself and a panda who I'm getting married to, ah kinda like kungfu panda lol I know it's weird but this is fantasy after all. In cartoons such as thunder cats and x men there animal like humans...anyways Poe is smart who works hard for everything, money conscious, and extremely good at his job. Myself in this plot, almost the opposite. As poe was able to easily graduate with honor in his program of computer science, I on the other hand came out a degree in communications which Poe deems as worthless. Poe is able to find an internship quickly and lands one of the best jobs in the city while I settle for a job at the corner grocery store. As the plot line continues there is a huge struggle between my little accomplishments and my counter parts success. This story is so rich in emotion and decisions. I personally enjoy this one very much.
My last fantasy at the moment is the classic good v.s. evil voyage. Myself being a young slave girl on a small remote planet far away. The time setting is in the future since there are many planets where people live ranging from robust metropolis to primitive planets where farming and simple living take place. Growing up with my guardian Poe (I tend to weave characters into different stories) on a large plantation where life is simple. We work the farm with a few other workers on the edge of a small town. There are shops, there's a church, stables, a blacksmith. This town however is filled with folklore, myth, and legend. No one is to enter the forest, eat of the animals or drink of the water from the forest for fear of being cursed.
Growing up an obedient and quiet child I had come to realize that I wasn't the same as the rest. I'd fall in to trances and develop strange dark marking on my skin which would soon fade after my mysterious power subsided. My only confidante being Poe, my care taker. Living in fear of being discovered I commited to my life on the quiet farm I called my home. Staying away from the other children as much as possible while dressing in unrevealing clothing and covering up my face. Life was simple.
But that all changed when an outsider from another planet was brought to help tend the plantation. Sensing the trouble he brought I immediately disliked him from the start, avoiding him at every cost...but how could I avoid someone living in my own home?
The story continues where he has been sent to seek out the "one" and bring me to my full potiential as this all powerful sorceress, oracle kinda figure. He's cruel but strong at forcing me to become all that I need to become for the sake of the universe. I've tried to make this man who I call "Barlow" a love interest but I don't think it's an appropriate turn for this fantasy. I don't really know how this daydream will turn out but it's interesting and unlike my usual.
As I play different video games, or see interesting movies, read different books I tend to pick up ideas and weave them in to my mind and plots unfolding. I even download movie soundtracks/instrumentals that will go along with my fantasy/mood.
I wonder if writing down my crazy imagination if it would help me kind of manage my overactive mind. But honestly if I was constructing something I believe it would make myself want to think even deeper into the subject, elaborate more on my alternate reality. I don't really know what my response would be yet but I would like to test it out.
Anyways sorry for the long blog, just wanted to get some stuff out of my head. I personally enjoy the creativity that comes from my frequent daydreams. Beautiful and thrilling stories full of magic, courage, strength and love.
What is it everyone else dreams about? I'm curious :)
