As it turns out, explaining to your colleagues, most of whom are medical professionals, why you were experiencing the symptoms of dream-induced hypothermia is exactly as complicated as one would expect.

And that's not even considering the memories that came with it.

It would appear that I've fallen in love in my dreams. I met a woman named Sage in the 12th Century and would sneak out to see her since some of my siblings did not approve of her social class. Status has definitely gone to their heads in the last hundred years. So, despite the fact that I dislike what I am, Sage and I want to be together forever so I've decided to turn her.

I don't know if I'd ever actually want to do something like that, in the waking world. Being a vampire is nothing like the movies and tv shows make it out to be.

Okay.

Say you got a soul mate in your dreams. Transcending history and the world and even changes to the past, you always end up finding each other. Like she once managed to wreck the loom of fate just to save you and risking the complete obliteration of the world in the process.

Say she shows up in Orange County, but she ain't dreamed yet.

How the hell am I supposed to not look like a crazed stalker? Besides not being caught.

Okay so say someone ends up getting cut by a scorpion faunus and poisoned and it makes them really sick and then you get the scorpion stinger. Is it possible to make an antidote with the poison from the stinger? And if so, how do I do it? I have to make this right, I have to save him

It's just not a Friday night until I'm hit on by at least two men, while I'm out, one of which can't listen when I say I'm not interested.


Which results in me breaking his hand and arm then his buddies nose and talking my way out of being arrested.for assault.

I have the best Friday nights..

This is going to be a busy month. My daughter's birthday is the sixteenth, and she'll be nine years old already. I'm taking her and a couple of her friends to Disneyland for that weekend.

Then my parents are coming in around the twenty-fifth to stay for a couple weeks. I am only partly looking forward to that. One of my brothers also attempted to tag along, but I adamantly told him not to come, I don't have the room for him. Which isn't true, I could make room, but I simply don't want to spend three weeks with my antagonistic brother under my roof.

I only hope my home will pass my mother's standards. I really do not want to deal with listening to her complain for three weeks about things that don't matter. Or things that do matter

But first thing's first, getting birthday presents for my daughter. Which at times is easier said than done.

Well, these dreams decided to give me a really awesome, adorable pet! ...sort of pet. I only have one, thankfully, so don't get all bent out of shape, mom.

And we'll ignore the fact I practically threw myself at Will. And ignore it was my fault. They're just SO CUTE OKAY?

Tried to not sleep last night. That didn't really work. Felt like I was on Earth 150 years from now. It wasn't a wasteland like everyone on the space station thought. But it was still deadly. Acid fog, friends being used as bait.

The fog got someone. We had to...

I had to put him down.

I was just sitting on the roof of my apartment building tonight, minding my own business when this guy decides I need rescuing. He bolted up to my side and got all dramatic going on about how it must be a cry for help, but really I just like the height.

I really need to stop hiding away in my cave like bedroom. Otherwise I'm destined to become a crazy cat lady. Only I don't really care for cats so it would definitely be a bad idea.

On the plus side I did manage to get some artwork done. So at least I've been a productive hermit!

I have got... a horse in my flat. It's brilliant! Well. Won't be for long, not when nature calls, so I've got to get my horse somewhere to his liking. But, the point is: where could I stash my horse until other options become available? The TARDIS has got to

Neal, does the place you work at have any room for Arthur? My horse, not my car. I realise now where my old girl's name came from. Hah!

More and more dreams. About the dark haired boy, as always, but then there were a few that were new. And this one felt... deeper. Not deeper in the sense that it was more meaningful, but like.

If your mind is an apartment building, and thoughts and dreams are kept in the rooms there. This dream is something you might stumble across in the basement, covered in cobwebs.

I'm not sure I want to think about it anymore. Those poor boys. Their pain, even through my dreams, is like barbed wire around my heart.

Okay first of all, am I going to wake up with injuries after every freaking dream I have? Because that's totally not cool with me. Also definitely don't like those Cabal assholes for breaking into our home. I wanted to take them all out, but no, the Morrigan intervened.

But hey, my dreams left me my shiny badass gun, so I'll take that. I still want the motorcycle though. Do the dreams take requests for gifts because yeah, the motorcycle's definitely my request.

Alright clearly I jinxed myself. Waking up injured is not fun nor is it cool, Dreams. Please stop.

On that note, anyone know any good tricks for getting blood out of fabrics?

But on the plus side, I got a totally awesome leather jacket that I wore in the dream? Perhaps that was an apology for the rude awakening.

Nope, still not understanding the whole Super Bowl event, but at least it's over so I can stop hearing about it regardless of where I go. It was getting tiring being asked who I was picking to win and giving various responses of I didn't care and how American football is incorrectly named anyway. It should be more like tossball or pansy rugby.

Also seriously, what's up with all the crime? Totally thought Orange County was better than that. But hey, made it back to my apartment in one piece, at least! God damn it now mom'll know I'm here

These dreams grow ever more alarming. They were simple enough at first, not entirely different than one might expect given the amount of talk they generate. It's bound to cause anyone to have a few strange ideas in their subconscious. But the further I delve into this world, the more concerned I'm becoming.

I can safely say that nothing beats flying over the ocean on a dragon. I can also say that they are better fishermen than I would ever be.

Someone stop me from quitting school and deciding to just run off and be a dragon rider for the rest of my life.

I've gone to look at a house. I suppose I'm old enough that I should have my own place. It's this remarkable property on Laguna Beach and I think I'm going to put my offer on it.

It has a lighthouse, which I'm weirdly excited about?

Images of property under cut. )

The interior is a bit cottagey. I'm not sure if I like it or not, but it might grow on me. I can change it easy enough.

Don't you just hate planes? I mean, I like the stewardesses. But getting through airports and wasting all that time sitting around and then sitting some more. I mean, thank god I fly first class at least, right? But hello, Orange County, here I am! Have you missed me? I can't believe it's been almost five years, but, well, time flies when you're having fun.

I thought I'd check this thing out. My brother's mentioned it before. You people are entertaining if nothing else. Now, who thinks it's time for my welcome home party? After this whole crime wave gets under control. Obviously.

So, I need to find a lawyer. I think. Or at least someone who can understand all this legalspeak. Maybe someone who knows something about patents? Or applying for them, anyway? I got all the paperwork I need? I think? I just need help deciphering it to make sure I've got all my t's crossed and i's dotted.

And, since this network is awesome and stuff, I thought I'd start my search here.

I am constantly surprised and in awe of my brilliance in these dreams. Shall I be jealous of the man I am there? Strive to be more like him in this, waking life? Should I be afraid that the more I gain of his brains, the more I gain of his other, less positive aspects?

I know what Helen would say.

Today is my first day at my new job. I'm taking a late lunch break now, and it was hard to pull myself away from the work. It's all terribly interesting. It feels weird to say so-- I'm a lawyer now. It's not a job. It's a step toward a proper career: one that I've been planning since I was old enough to do so.

I-- am. Well. Happy? Better than I have been in a very, very long time. And I have a lot of reasons to be thankful for that.

The apocalypse seems to have been averted. I won't pretend I wasn't terrified, but we appear to be none the worse for wear. I fear my daughter will need some time, though. She refuses to go to sleep without me in the room at this point.

I feel honored, but at the same time, rather worried.

Is it at all possible to get a real cup of tea anywhere? I swear, I've been here two years and I've yet to find a place in all of California that can do a decent cup of real, English tea. All of them steep it too long, or not long enough, and it never tastes the same as the stuff we get across the pond.

I may start having it imported, at this rate.

What if I don't want a boyfriend? What if I don't want to get married? What if I *gasp* don't want kids? Am I not allowed to be happy with myself and my dog, or my mom and hers?

I'm 27. Stop telling me how I should live my life.

I have all of my hospital bills paid off. I can't believe it. It's kind of crazy. Thank you, anonymous benefactor. I appreciate it. Those bills made my parents and I homeless for a while and made them file for bankruptcy. So it's extra special. I wish I could thank you in person.

I'm still paying off for school, but it's not that bad now that I don't have to pay for my hospital stuff. It's completely manageable, thanks to my job.

I might actually hang out this weekend and do some things. Except I'm not sure what to do. What do people do when they don't work? Suggestions?

This is me saying hello. I'm Jessica. Nice to meet most of you.

It feels like I've been inside for the better part of a year. Sometimes I forget what sunshine is and the outdoors. The only time I get to see a part of it is on the way from home to work and back again. I've been living on ramen noodles and trying to make something of my life. Every time I think I've got a handle on it, something puts me on my ass again. Needless to say, I'm sick of it.

This country isn't bad though. I'd heard so many stories about America, I wasn't sure what to expect. It's not as bad as I thought it was going to be though. Your weather is much nicer, even if I haven't been able to see much of it.

I know this is an odd way to introduce yourself, but if anyone could tell me maybe the name of a lawyer? Looks like I've got myself into a bit of trouble already. Guess hopping across the pond didn't help that at all. Not that I thought it would.
