I really do owe Mina a huge thanks for encouraging me to audition for our school’s production of Heathers instead of just going to the auditions to support her because...I GOT THE PART OF HEATHER C! And any little bit of guilt I might have felt over it, because I know that was the other part Mina wanted, is completely alleviated because she did encourage me to go out for it and she got the part she really wanted anyway. I’m trying to think of the last time she and I got to work together and I think it was that commercial a few years ago. Mina - we were way overdue for a project together.

I thought going through the network might be the best way to find someone to help me work through my...experience. Prior to my son being born I was...taken by a group that was trying to get to his father through me. Through us. They held me for a few days and...I thought I could do this but I can’t. I think I’d feel more comfortable discussing what all happened face to face if you have any openings available.

Well, Chris has shown up in my dreams. It was kind of strange to see my aunt and uncle again. It's been over a year since the accident. I never really got along with either one of them, but it was kind of nice to see them again.

I say kind of, because they decided to drop Chris off with me with absolutely no warning whatsoever and fucked off back to New York. Still traumatized, still mute, and me in the middle of a big case.

So my dream self did what was clearly the most logical thing, and dropped him off with the serial killing, drug dealing, horse race fixing, ballerina stealing, sweets-loving freak I've been investigating for the last year to babysit him.

Normally I'm down with dream me's decisions, but I'm really starting to think it's time he gets some actual friends.

There's all this stuff in this big house, and it has my name on it. Why? It's weird. I got a lot of mail and stuff like bills. I don't have no money or anything. I haven't seen my mom and dad is probably just drunk somewhere. Hope he doesn't know I'm here. Stefan, where are you?

I got a pool. I always wanted one. Anyone want to go swimming?

I'm finally going back to active duty at work today, and Alex will be getting out of prison it looks like life is going to finally start getting back to whatever counts as normal here. It would be nice if things actually stay normal for a while.

Chris, my kid brother, hasn't been dealing with things so well. I ended up calling his sister in New York last night and had a long talk with her about something that could help get his confidence up, and it sounds like he's always been an animal lover. Given how fucking stupid people are, I can't say I blame him.

Anyway, I don't suppose anyone knows of any sort of... activities or programs for a seven year old that would let him deal with animals on a regular basis, do they? I really need to find something that will help take his mind off all the shit he needs to deal with on a regular basis.

Is there some law here that says that all club owners have to be incredibly hot that no one told me about? Because if there is - I need to find and personally thank this lawmaker.

There's been a lot of talking about dreams, that I've noticed.

I didn't think much of it, but given my recent odd dream, thought that I'd put something out there.
First off, I was at my grandparents house or who I knew to be my grandparents. Pretty standard, playing out in their yard with pets. The pet itself wasn't like a typical dog. They were creatures known as "chimaeras" which had the ability to change their shape. Grow wings, ungrow them, whatever suited its needs. This seemed to be normal as my grandfather was carrying on as normal and it certainly didn't stop me from playing with them.

Secondly, it didn't seem like any place that I've ever seen or been to. Maybe my mind was just on the fritz and making shit up as it went.

I'd say that I need to cut back on drinking but I only drink on weekends, and usually just on Saturday nights.

So, dreams feel a bit more back to normal right now. There's no monsters and it's me dealing with the idea of graduating high school and spending time with my girlfriend. I seemed to have mellowed out, which is great, because then it means I'm the nice guy who goes along with her to visit the parents of her dead friend that we couldn't save from the Upside Down.

And now it's almost Halloween and there's a party go to. Because that doesn't sound ominous at all - it feels like a typical horror movie trope. Something is going to happen....

I had the weirdest dream last night. It was my first day of school, but I was in high school. Ugh. Who would want to live that over again?

Plus, I'm a very awkward high schooler. What is my subconscious trying to tell me??

I’d almost forgotten how relaxing it was here at the estate in France. I don’t have to worry about Maman or breakfast. Or anything other than cleaning up after myself at night - which is easy enough to to remember because it keeps Haruhi from giving me that look.

So there I was, taking a well-needed afternoon nap and dreaming about sending my dog in the post via these magical mailing tubes, when I was rudely awakened by a book falling on my head. I was pissed off at first, but in the end I realized I really only have my shelf to blame.

I'm dreaming these dreams a lot now and it feels like I'm some kind of horror movie. I dreamed that a hole opened up in my bathroom in my apartment. I was pretty desperate to get out, so I crawled through it and the next thing I know I was sitting on this wicked long escalator going down into what I think is subway station. It's completely abandoned except for this woman named Cynthia. She thinks we're in a dream. Her dream. She asks me to help her find the exit and I agree, but before we go even four feet she get's sick and goes into the bathroom. She never comes out and then I'm attacked by these...things. I don't know what they are. They're kind of a cross between a dog and a big cat of some kind with these super long barbed tongues. I kill them with a lead pipe and look for Cynthia, but I can't find her. I do find another hole that takes me back to my apartment. Then Cynthia calls me demanding to know why I left and says if I need tokens she has them.

What the actual hell is going on?!

My dreams have gone from being pretty normal to strange. I'm trapped in my apartment. Someone chained my door shut with heavy chains and padlocks. My windows are sealed shut and my phone doesn't work. I don't have a cell phone, or I'm in a time in which cell phones aren't common. I've tried to banging on my doors and windows hoping to get the attention of my neighbors, but no one has noticed. No one has even noticed that I'm missing.

I don't like the way these dreams make me feel when I wake up.

Well well well. It seems that whatever is behind these dreams decided to give a gift. I woke up to the costume I wore to that party I dreamed of on the foot of my bed - loincloth and all. I couldn’t help but try it on just to see if it fit as well as it did in the dreams. And I wasn’t disappointed by what the mirror showed me.

When my dreams first began, we had a dragon expert take a look at Temeraire to determine his breed, and it was decided that he must be a Chinese Imperial, a rare dragon rarely seen outside of China. Whoever, with the revelation of Temeraire's destructive roar in my last dream, the same expert concluded that he must be a Chinese Celestial, rarer still than the Imperial and never seen beyond China's boarders.

It seems as he was correct, as word of our victory must have reached China, and they have sent an embassy to retrieve Temeraire so as to return him to China. As loathe as I would be to see him go, had Temeraire chose to return with them, I would have willingly said my farewells. But as it stands, they insist on using all sorts of underhanded methods to convince him to go, including lying to him and trying to force me to lie when Temeraire did not believe them, and calling me a thief to my face when Temeraire's egg had been won as a fair prize in a naval battle.

I may have lost my temper with First Lord Admiral Barham, which I am sure guarantees that, in the event Temeraire chooses to return to China, I will have lost my position in the Navy. Though that is hardly my most dire concern, as I disobeyed orders and saw Temeraire once they caused him to lose his temper, which is a almost certainly a court martial, but that Temeraire also scooped me up, quite of his own accord, and flew off to Dover to engage in battle.

I'm nearly certain that this means I will be arrested in my next set of dreams. At least I can still cherish my freedom in my waking life.

Okay. Hey, my name is Anakin Skywalker.

By show of responses, who else here dreams and my name is somehow significant for them? Like that other world I'm supposed to dream about? Who else dreams about that world and somehow knows me or that other world me, who or whatever he is?

It doesn't matter how many different versions of myself I dream of.

The first dreams, with the island...the ones after where I'm more established and accepted the nobility thing. The ones with the Cradle of Life. And the ones where I met a very attractive cop with a magical gauntlet and took a visit to the after life to bring her back. And now this new one I had last night.

My parents die. Even here, in this world.

It's like I'm always destined to be orphaned.

Mother's Day actually went pretty well. My mother can be a bit overbearing, so I decided to also put the day in my favor by giving her the gift of a spa day, so I didn't have to spend as much time with her. At least it meant she was nice and relaxed by the time we met up for dinner. I want way more of that mom and I think the world would be a better place.

Anyway, thank god school for almost over!

Okay, I have to say that the fact they've mapped the genome of ancient Egyptians and got unexpected results is kind of blowing my mind right now. Apparently they were more closely related to people from the Near East, Anatolia and Eastern Mediterranean Europeans as opposed to modern Egyptians being more closely related to sub-Saharan populations. This kind of changes the history of that area and how ancient humans migrated around.

An interesting tidbit of history: It was once famously said by the First Lord of the Admiralty, Lord St. Vincent, "I do not say they cannot come – I only say they cannot come by sea" and in the Napoleonic wars, this was proven true. Napoleon was a clever general over land, but completely hopeless when it came to battling at sea, and Napoleon was never able to launch a successful invasion of England over the Channel.

Though, as history showed, he had once thought to invade England by air balloon. This plot never came to fruition either, as he was urged to avoid said tactic due to unpredictability of travelling by balloon, and the winds.

It seems that in a world where every major militarily force has an air force made up of dragons, contemplating the idea of invasion by air balloon was completely unnecessary. Napoleon crafted wooden ships, chock-full of soldiers, and was to have then carried over by dragon. He very nearly succeeded, too. If Temeraire hadn't discovered that he could... I'm not even sure how he managed it. He roared, and the force of his cry shattered the ships. But if he hadn't discovered that as his skill, then surely England would have been lost. I shudder to think of what could have happened.

Well you see something new every day. Or at least I do. Leaving a site I was checking out for a client today, I got the joy of watching an old man drive his car directly into the doors of a pharmacy. I’m guessing they either don’t take his insurance or didn’t have his prescription ready.

Now that this disaster has managed to be averted, I’m going to take it on myself to make a bit of a public service announcement. Do all of us a favor if you get world ending crap from your dreams and don’t store it under your bloody bed! There’s a magic guild in the area that has a place that shit can be stored safely so that it doesn’t get stolen.
