With how bad the fireworks have been lately, I spent the last week of June at our cabin and probably won't be coming back for another week at least.

My dreams weren't even a war but they had the same effect.

Pretty sure I just had a Dream.

Because that? Was super intense. And not in a good way.

So my dreams have gotten even more interesting. Other than being part Fey and part Shadowhunter, Mark and I are now being raised by our father, which is where the Shadowhunter part comes from. We're being raised as Shadowhunters, which includes a lot of training in hand to hand combat and weapons and learning about different demons. It's a lot to train kids to do, but it's something we'll need as we get older.

I got my first Rune in my dream last night, which looks like an eye on the back of our hand. It's called a Voyance rune and it enhances our ability to see the Shadow World. When I woke up this morning, it was actually on my hand. Mark got his a few weeks ago, I was starting to wonder when I'd get mine.

One of the reasons I liked living on the east coast was, there were no earthquakes. I did not miss the earthquakes one bit and I would appreciate it if they would stop now.

Yes, I know that it's strange that I'm less worried about the giants and more worried about the earthquakes.

This fog, no.

NO!

Snow I was good with, fog I am not! NOT!

Has anyone seen the Mist - don't go outside! Lock your doors, don't be near windows.

It's still almost two weeks until the 4th of July, and the neighbors are shooting off fireworks. It is SNOWING IN JUNE and the neighbors are shooting off fireworks.

Just. ...Wake me up in 2021.

So. Waking up with artifacts from the dreams is a thing?

Because I've got a god damn bracelet on my wrist and it's reading my vitals and sending them back to the mother ship or something.

Six months. Nearly six months I go without dreams or noticing anything fucking weird happening, and then D had to go and start using this stupid Network again and now there are fucking space teddy bears running all over the place.

It seems that women were as likely to hunt in hunter/gatherer societies as men, based on the rate of related injuries when examining their skeletons.

Yet more ammunition against the idea that women historically stayed home.

I have an exciting trip planned to South America. Chile, specifically.

Well, exciting for me, probably a lot more boring for other people. Lots of digging in the dirt.

My first day here and I bugged my sister to do all the things. We ate at this cafe, Izzy’s. It didn’t take much persuasion to hit the beach or get ice cream and all kinds of junk food. I’ve gotta figure out what sights we should see tomorrow. Any suggestions?

Oh and heyyyy. I’m CJ.

So it occurred to me that with everything that happened over the last couple of weeks, the quarantine and my brother turning into a woman, which was the most amusing thing I've ever seen in my life, I never actually introduced myself. So, here I am doing just that. I'm Helen Blackthorn, I'm 23, like making new friends and I'm an exhibit designer at the National History Museum of Los Angeles and it's so good being back to work. I was missing the museum during the shelter in place and was itching to finish the exhibit we were working on when everything closed down.

I guess I started the dream parade that seems to be on the net work. I've...it wasn't strange, like how a lot of others dreams people seem to post about.

It was kind of the same, as my life. I...I was still a wild child, my mom and dad, not really caring what I did as long as I stayed out of their way. I wondered if it was just a lucid fever dream, but the joys of living with a doctor. I'm quite healthy, he informed me.


Has that happen to other people here? Dreams kinda mimicking your life?

Why did no one ever tell me that the Romans used flying penis amulets to ward off sickness? Why was this never in my history books in school? That might have gotten me to pay attention in class! This is extremely bloody fitting for our current situation and I think everyone should start wearing flying penis amulets so the bleeding Corona virus can go bugger off. Of course, even if there wasn't a pandemic right now, I'd still find this extremely fascinating.

I need a flying penis amulet now. I wonder if this is the sort of thing someone would be selling on Etsy?

What’s that saying about luck? If it wasn’t for bad luck, I wouldn’t have any luck at all? Seems pretty accurate for how my day’s been going even though I don’t actually believe in luck. Murphy’s Law would sum it up pretty perfectly if it was an actual law of nature - everything that could go wrong today has. Starting with dropping my phone on the ground while I was trying to lock my door so now there’s a crack running across the top and a chip that keeps spreading. The screen was supposed to be durable. Then I got to the shop and found out that one of our ovens is broken and no one knew where the number for the repair company was written down or the warranty information for it.

It took 2 and a half hours to find that paper, and then when I finally got someone to actually pick up the phone they told me that it was going to be a week until one of their technicians could actually come out and inspect it to try and discover what the problem is and then we’ll have to wait for the parts to come in after they’re ordered which could take another two weeks. And then they’ll have to schedule a technician to install it. So...I’m supposed to be without a second oven at my donut shop for almost a month? There’s no way I can do that. My business would suffer.

I’ll just look into buying a replacement one for cheap so that we at least have one working while I look around and find a good price on a better one. And after that I’ll start looking at different repair companies.

This might come as a surprise as an archaeologist who's father was a curator at the British Museum, but I fully support returning cultural treasures to their countries of origin. Perhaps the one good thing to come out of Brexit.

Ideally, treasures would be something shared around the world, as sort of an ongoing collaboration, but they should start at the very least where they belong.

Ugh, woke up with a massive headache and some bruises this morning thanks to my dreams. Dream!Me decided to have a swim race with the asshole new kid and I smacked my head on the end of the lane when we finished.

From there it looks like I've convinced Pogue that he's a sketchy dude and we went to investigate on him at school - turns out he's one of us, but his family was exiled back in the day. Also, cue a fun scene of us floating in the air over a security guard and stopping a bunch of papers mid-air with our Powers.

We also have a massive secret cave library with a giant circle full of fire for meetings. Would be kind of awesome if that showed up here, but thankfully we had a meeting with all of us so I could tell everyone what I learned. And of course Chase decided to ramp up the shenanigans - he put Sarah under a spell, used a spell to look like me, and glamoured a image of Sarah to lure me into the room. And like any typical big bad guy he told me all about his plan and I got the crap beat out of me because he has more power than I do. And now we're going to have a big show down - this'll be great...

These dreams continue. I find myself reliving my childhood as I dream of another one. The similarities are unnerving.

My hatred towards my father only grows, and yet I find myself unable to do anything about it. This is frustrating.

I need something to let off steam. I am open to suggestions.

I made what I hope is a sound financial decision, and bought a cabin up in the Sierra Nevadas. We always leave town around any holidays with fireworks, so it might be nice to have a place we could drive up to.

So honey we own a cabin now?

Yes, yes. Halloween. A week from today. There are a lot of celebrations happening at clubs all over. So instead of trying to compete, Lux will be hosting our Halloween extravaganza on Saturday the 2nd. And this way I can attend the other parties as well. Win/Win.

It's another year older, and another year that I haven't aged. It's still weird to know that my lifespan can be measured in millennia as opposed to decades. So it begs the question, at what point do immortals stop keeping track of how old they actually are?

Anyone elses dreams seem blurry at times?

The name of the race that's chasing me in my dreams is Mogadorians and they finally caught up to me and Katarina. We were caught and brought to a base in a mountain side, very military looking. Things kinda of a blurred from there. I know I was tortured, questioned, and even as a teen my smartass knew better than to give into them. So I feed them false information, but it came at a price, because when they found out it was false they killed Katarina.

I woke up from there, I called Katarina at five am, thankfully she was up drinking coffee and was alright.

Just felt so real.

My dreams started up abruptly again. My originals, I mean. Dreaming five different versions of myself has required spreadsheets to keep track.

I've been trying to stop a group called Trinity from... just about everything they want to do, none of which is good for myself or for civilization. I tracked them to Mexico, where they are looking for an artifact. Based on the murals and other evidence I saw there, it has something to do with the Mayan apocalypse.

and I keep killing them

I recovered the relic only for it to be taken from me by a man claiming to want to cleanse the world and remake it.

Immediately followed by a massive flood and landslide that nearly killed me, and wreck the nearby town.

I ... have to get the matching artifact, I have to stop what I think I unleashed.

The Hubble telescope has taken a new portrait of Jupiter. The Great Red Spot is shrinking, which is intriguing to see. I've always been fascinated with the swirling clouds of the giant planet in our solar system. It's certainly one of the more striking planets to look at up close.

Realising that I probably don't have clothes for the trip planned resulted in a trip to the shops. I don't know how anyone deals with this. I don't think shorts that short are a great idea for potential climbing rocks.

Skimpy tops are a little confusing too, I can't tell what's the front and what's the back.

So I think an outdoors centre would be better, at least there I can find proper activity wear.

These Dreams continue to be so very different from the first ones I had. I apparently have a younger sister in these Dreams. My mother sent her to bring me back to Paradise Island, but of course she ended up getting caught up in the Nazis plans and attempts to take me down. They tricked my sister into telling them where feminum, the metal my gauntlets and tiara are made from, came from. So for the second straight set of Dreams, the German army attacked my home, only this time they actually managed to temporarily enslave the Amazons. Until my sister and I managed to take our home back.

Apparently this version of me is also susceptible to chloroform. She seems to spend a lot of time getting knocked out as well. It makes me wonder if this set of Dreams is having any physical effects on me. Though I'm not necessarily wanting to discover the answer to that either.

You know what is exceptionally frustrating? Ordering in parts to arrive at a specific time and date only to find that that is not what happens at all. Partly because the shipping company is seemingly unreliable and partly because instead of delivering them to my shop they delivered them to another one on the other side of Orange County.

It's five o'clock somewhere in the world, surely.
