This dream was a combination of a bunch of space sci-fi shows, like a Battlestargatetrek. Bunch of people on a big spaceship.

The ship was a big octohedron with some various features/protrusions on the sides. It could travel through hyperspace, but when it did the ship duplicated itself into eight different timelines (or eight realities converged, or something) that traveled different paths. The ship had a supercomputer to make sure that the ship wouldn't crash into itself during hyperspace travel, and there was a big screen that showed the simulation.

One of the characters was possessed by some kind of evil spirit, and he reported to the captain that the route was safe even though two ships would come within a few inches (plus margin of error). By the time this was discovered it was too late to stop moving. When the two ships were about to collide the evil character was standing right between them, monologue-ing about something, and the non-evil-possessed version of that character on the other ship was standing in the same place for some reason. When the ships passed within a few feet of each other, the characters bumped into each other and somehow ended up on each other's ships.

Once the hyperspace travel was complete some crew members wanted to punish the evil character for endangering them, but the captain pointed out that they have a version of the character who is innocent. The evil character was in a different reality that they had no way of reaching. The crew decided to treat the situation like the character had never been possessed by evil, and everything basically went back to normal.

Well...That was an interesting Dream.
It seemed to take days or weeks.

I was back at University.
Not to learn academic lessons, but life lessons.

There was one beautiful polished Redwood hall.
When I first arrived, I walked; fast and steady. (the way ya' do.)
I found myself running and sliding in that hall. (It was great fun.)

Many little vignettes.
Some challenging.

A man yelled at me about not knowing about being black.
I learned to open an important door by kicking it 'right'.

I stumbled into a man's lovely art boxes, the paint was wet.
I help him and his girl friend set things right, again.

There were snakes I did not think much of, because they were fake.
They were really scary snakes when I learned they were real!

The dining room was elegant everyone in black and white.
I chose homemade peanut brittle and woke up hungry.

There were other vignettes.
I got tired, just like real university.

I woke up hungry.
Yey! Hungry is good.

My father narrowly escaped being in two mass shootings. Then I was in one. There were at least two shooters. I stopped them, but got shot in the abdomen multiple times. Not a restful night.

I thought "not a restful night" was an understatement. Then I realized this is the dreams thread, so now I consider it apt.

Dreamed about being with a bratty kid in some kind of candy store. The kid wanted some kind of high-tech pink sucker, but I didn't get it then. Instead I came back later and got it as a surprise.

When I gave it to him, the kid lied that he had wanted a purple sucker. So I lied that there were no purple suckers left when I went back, sorry.
In all fairness...

Recent dream

It was a well-defined narrative, for a dream. A detailed description would be quite long. A teenage girl and boy got into a fight on Halloween, because the girl thought the boy murdered her friend. Nobody saw the girl again, and the boy wound up dead. Everyone in the town was convinced that the boy had murdered the girl, but her parents held on hoping that she was alive and had just left town, possibly since she had killed the boy. I was convinced that he had killed her, and disposed of her body in a sinkhole in a local swamp, which was known to lead to a cave. A week after Halloween, I told her father the whole truth of what I had witnessed that night, and showed him the location of the sinkhole. He convinced me to go into the cave and inspect it, so her remains could be discovered if it was true. As I entered the cave, I suddenly felt that I should have told someone sooner, because it became so obvious that he could have put her into the sinkhole alive. If that was the case, she could have died in there, but I could have saved her if I had told someone sooner. But I found her alive in the cave (actually an underground concrete building, as it turned out). She was happy to see me, with an attitude like, "I knew you'd come for me!" When I asked her what she'd eaten for that week, she said, "I ate an ice cream!" She was reunited with her parents after that.

Was packing for vacation. Some stuff happened, but at one point went into my bedroom(nothing like my real life bedroom), and there was a huge tree in there. Not super tall, but large limbs all over, even near the ground. You owuld have to climb over or under them to get to the back of the room. I was thinking I should trim it back to be able to get around the room better, but had been too lazy to get it done.
