I have this recurring dream, the best dream i've ever had, and last night Scout, Tony, Penny and Willem were in it. I thought I would report it.
We were all standing on a beach of a crescent shaped atoll. The island is surrounded by mountains. We are all wearing loincloths(Penny, yours was, shall I say, very revealing ) with warpaint and fire hardened spears. Icould tell everyone was agitated, and nervous about what was going to happen.
I hear this extremely loud roar, and look up to the east and see a beautiful chinese dragon come roaring and streaking over the top of the mountains towards us. It is orange with green and purple highlights streaking all over it's body, with a black stomach. It strafes the beach blowing fire, and everyone begins running and throwing spears at it. I run towards the water, thinking that fire and water don't mix. A bunch of the tribe have the same idea, and I see Scout do this amazing leap, throwing his spear in mid-air, striking the dragon, then diving into the water, all in one motion. I dive into the ocean, and look back and see it flying over the water. It climbs high, then dives in. It passed about 15 feet away, and it's eye is larger than I am. I throw my spear (underwater LOL) and stab it in the eye. It screams and leaps out of the water. The ensuing wave flings me high up into the air, and I see a picture I'll never forget. The Dragon, strafing the beach, blowing fire and screaming angrily, while the tribe tries to fight it. I hit the water and grab another spear I see floating near me. The Dragon comes back into the water, vengenance on it's mind, and arrows towards me. I see it coming and have enough time to think "I'm Dead" before it tries to eat me. I manage to stab it in the gums and it pushes me deeper and deeper in the water. As i reach a rock formation at the bottom, it turns away from me, pulling the spear from my hand. I see it turn back towards me, and think "i better hide amongst these rocks before it eats me". I dive into a cave as the Dragon reaches me. I swim deeper and see a tartan covered door with a pull ring handle at the bottom. The dragon sticks it's snout into the cave and tries to suck me out into it's mouth. I hold on to the ring for dear life, seeing and feeling my biceps straining, all the time thinking "this is the end of Rory, not a bad way to die". After an endless moment of strain, the Dragon stops sucking and I notice a zippo lighter on the cave floor. I grab it and swim out of the cave. The Dragon is nowhere in sight. I swim towards the surface, lungs straining, and breast the waves. I look and see the Dragon making runs over the beach, blowing fire, but gaining altitude with each pass. I swim towards the beach, watching the Dragon get higher and higher, and as I reach the beach, it screams one last time and flies over the mountains. I walk out onto the beach, zippo still in hand, and see Scout, Tony, Penny and Willem smiling the "Goddamn it is great to be alive smile", a little bruised and cut, but none too worse for the wear. I walk up and greet them, and after a moment of "you made it, hell yeah!!" jubilation, we turn to tend to the wounded.
I have this dream about once a month, and I love it. I always wake up excited, with my heart pounding and my adrenaline pumping. Everytime I tell the story i get some juice just reliving it mentally. The only downside is when I have it at 2:00 AM and can't sleep anymore that night. Last night's was about 630 AM, so it wasn't too bad. First time anyone else i know showed up though.
Any speculations on what this dream means?
