i just had the most fucked up dream last night
i was driving along through some shitty looking suburb, and there was a speed camera stationed by the side of the road. instead of flashing though, it projected or sent these fines onto people’s windscreens, blinding them. it created chaos and a huge car pile up happened. i slammed into the woman in front of me who had a dog in her car, and i remember being distraught.
i was pulled unharmed out of the wreckage by some friends and when we returned to the site later i noticed the police cleaning up evidence - explosives, triggers, actors. then michael’s mum (ha!) gave me some papers claiming it was just one of many of these staged incidents as part of a government conspiracy, from this new party who were these racist, right wing disney villainous types. turns out they were planning more of these attacks in the northern and western suburbs where migrants and POC were living and were trying to blame it on them, to try and cause race riots and create a white society. we were spotted by the officials at the site and became dangerous as we knew too much.
they detained us in this facility, which was some weird resort thing that we couldn’t leave. there were also different rooms in this facility - for some reason i was convinced it was a tarantino movie set? like with different chapters, pulp fiction style. there was a room where some guy was stitching together a person using different people’s body parts, then next doors was a kitchen with a couple having a fight that deteriorated into murder. the final room we used as a hiding place and we found a lab full of vials, medical equipment and records on all of us.
through them we discovered that we were asleep - we were in some kind of alternate reality and only when we were awakened via injection could we enter back to our own world, where a group of us were standing around a lake in a forest. each time we awoke, we would surface, but the drug would only last so long, we had to stop what was happening in the alternate reality before we could properly wake up.
we were finally released, and forced into the city, where we had to attend a public speech from the party. a redhead girl we were friends with was wanted by this government and we had to hide her. we nearly escaped but they noticed the track marks on our arms from injecting ourselves and they realised we had discovered who we were.
we learned that they were planning one huge “terrorist attack” in the city, i tried to escape with my car to tell someone but they had set up impossible road blocks - tyre stingers, fires, glass, cars driving at me, designed to keep the locals contained while they set off their bomb, so i had to turn back.
AAAAAAAAAND then i woke up because the cat scratched my feet sorr. no conclusion to this bizarre turn of events except no more eating dinner at 1am for me
Colorado, you win every single time.
