Residual Ant Trauma
Trigger Warnings: Large Ants
Discuss this dream?: Sure
Have this dream interpreted?: Sure

After my sister's guinea pig died, I dreamed that she got a couple of little ants to replace him. We couldn't get a cage for them yet, so we put them in a box, and it was my job to watch over them so they couldn't escape. At first they couldn't figure out how to get out, but over time they got better and better at climbing up the walls.

I kept them in alright until one of them bit my finger. It didn't hurt, but I couldn't get it off either. I pulled and pulled, but when the ant finally fell back into the box, its jaw didn't go with it. The ants were the small kind, but the jaw was now massive; the size of a carpenter ant's jaw, wedged deeply into my finger. I knew the ant was going to die a horrible, slow death without its jaw, since it couldn't eat. I don't even remember if I got the jaw off my finger before the dream ended.

Definitely a carryover from that winter a few years back when I was killing 5-10 giant carpenter ant invaders in my bedroom every day. I used to like ants, but now I am soooooo done with them.

@Kpribbit Welcome to the thread! And best of luck with your goal of lucid dreaming :) Also, it's awesome that you don't have nightmares, even cooler that it was a recurring one you beat--if you have any tips, I'm sure folks would really love to hear them. Also, if it helps at all, not everything in a dream is symbolic! The nightmare nun might've looked like your mom just because your brain needed someone female and she was recently in memory.

@Sigmar Welcome! I've heard that a lot, folks who lucidly dream without knowing there's a word for it, or who naturally have great recall. Either way, you're in the right place for making it more consistent :) I love stories pulled from dreams! Are you a writer, artist, dungeon master, etc?

@logical Hey there! Furbies! Alright I gotta ask, do you have any idea why? I'm kinda jealous you can get fictional folks in your dreams! So if you read a book, are those characters likely to show up that night? Anyways, best of luck with the recall/lucidity!

@dragonlady1803 Hey there fellow dream-drawer! Man that's so cool, I was hoping someone else who draws stuff from their dreams might join up ^.^ Would you consider posting some of what you draw? I'd love to see it, and I bet everyone else would, too!

@BeckAlistiere Welcome to the thread! I'm glad to hear someone else is enjoying reading all the dreams (and you had a great one yourself...precious little kittens, sorry about your dream-mom). I'm with you on the "dreams with a plot" thing, as well as with sleeping position. It's super rare that I can fall asleep on my back and not just automatically roll to a side, but if I do...yikes. Best of luck with college!

@Eliriel Hey there! It's awesome you were keeping a dream log before. Hopefully recall will come even quicker, since you've got practice already. Also, best of luck with compsci! I can say it's a great field and I don't regret going into it the slightest. Have you got anything in mind for specialization? Frontend, backend, firmware, security...it's such a fun area to work in.

@FrogTea Man, my dumb butt was sitting here like "oh yeah I guess folks have favorite ships...I mean, I'm fond of the SSV Oliver Hazard Perry..." SO ANYWAYS. I am curious though (you don't have to share, of course!). Also, welcome to the "folks who dream about water" crew! There's a fair few of us in the thread, looks like.

@DoggoNoWanno Welcome to the thread! I've heard before from folks who've started taking something for sleep that ended up changing their dreams entirely. Normally something like melatonin, though. Is it anything I might've heard of...and any chance you might share some pet pics? I love pythons! <3 Also, welcome to team "dreams about water"!

i am not a writer, i am not an artist, and i'm not a DM, i am however, an idea-man, i tend to come up with interesting ideas and concepts and send them to those who may be able to flesh them out better.

Good morning, Dreamers!

Sorry for no ping yesterday, Christmas got unexpectedly hectic (in a good way). I hope you had a very merry one! <3

To make up for it/spread the RNG love (Sandswept Delta is GREAT), I'll roll a 1d5 each time someone posts a dream (or a "no recall" message), and if I get a 5, I'll send you a strange chest :D

@Oranitha I think the furbies are because I collect them, and I take weekly trips to antique and thrift stores to hunt for them, so I often dream of finding and buying them haha, it's really weird! And for the fictional characters, I think it more depends on how much I like the character, and how much I like the book or movie they come from. For example, one of my biggest hyperfixations at the moment is a broadway musical called The Book of Mormon, so sometimes my favorite characters Kevin Price or Connor Mckinley might pop up in my dreams, and sometimes I'll even be that character in a dream that takes place in their story haha! It's really fun though, I love when it happens

@Oranitha

oh I didn't know you could just say ''no recall'' if you can't recall your dreams :')
I usually only remember sleep paralysis episodes or bad nightmares but other than that I usually never remember them
