weird dreams, snakes, vore?
I had this dream. It was super weird and WAY more vivid than most of my dreams so I decided it requires sharing.
So my partner and I were for some reason on this tiny island that was just a tourist trap-y building surrounded by a small border of sand. And there were employees outside trying to collect donations for more trees, but the trees they already had were dead and sad-looking and like this wasn't gonna work. Not sure why that was even a thing.
So anyway we ignored that and went inside where there was a courtyard with a pond and a bunch more greenery and like half of it was dense (but tiny) jungle and I saw a yellow anaconda when we first came in but just went to the pond and forgot about it.
Then partner wanted to go eat a picnic or something in the dense jungley part and I'd forgotten the giant snake by then and was like "wow what a good idea" so I'm following behind him and he gets maybe like 3 yards in and then I notice a bright green boa constrictor at eye level on the nearest tree to me and several more snakes right inside and I'm TERRIFIED of snakes so I start to kind of panic and whisper for my partner to come back out and he's confused and still hasn't seen them but comes back out to check on me and then a green anaconda sort of lunges and bites at his ponytail but just baaaarely misses so then he looks around him and there's some other snake on the ground with a bulging belly and we're like "oh hey maybe this is a bad zoo with the worst reptile house ever we should probably leave now."
So we head towards the door and then there's *another* snake that comes stomping towards us.
Yeah, stomping. Because it had just eaten a baby elephant I guess and somehow instead of the elephant dying it just lent the snake its ability to walk????? Like you could see the full outline of the elephant doing the actual walking but going where the snake wanted it too and it was soooooo fucked up.
Apparently that was the point where my brain was like "no, uh-uh, no more, not doing it" and I woke up and told my partner. He suggests we were in a Simic (mtg reference) lab and they were trying to make animal hybrids through vore. XD
weird dreams, snakes, vore?
One of the things that most stands out to me about this dream, despite all the incredible weirdness of it, is the fact that the snakes in it were definitely particular real life snakes that I recognized and knew what they were.
I had a science teacher in middle school who had a small yellow anaconda in the classroom and taught us a lot about different types of snakes but that's probably the last time I would have gotten that sort of information. About 20 years ago. I am, again, NOT a snake person.
But no, they were very vivid and specific and when I looked them all up this morning they were also all *accurate*. And granted, these are pretty common snakes and that's not like obscure knowledge but still, knowledge I have definitely not tried to learn or keep so I'm impressed with my sleepy memory powers.
Like, the green boa was probably the most like "um I don't think you had that right, brain. My friend has a boa, it's brown. Are there really green ones?" So I look up green boa and yes, there are! With the white diamond shapes from my dream, even! I did not consciously remember this animal existing, wow!
