Dream: What the serious hell?
Okay... So I've mentioned previously how when I haven't slept a long while and then manage to get sleep I dream in crack?

Well, this crack went epic. And mytharc-y. And seriously freaking messed-up. And death-ficcy. Among other things. Last night's dream was also very, very information dense, so this is long. I claim no responsibility or comprehension for what my subconscious does to amuse itself.

Epic Supernatural Crack and Angst Time-Travel Demon Apocalypse Dream. With bonus Tattoos and Were-Kittens

The dream starts out with me going to Ontario, (with assorted boring family crap and guilt and woe and so forth, nothing interesting) and me having to watch the Supernatural finale at my Aunt and Uncle's place. My Aunt was out of the house for a while, and my Uncle was John Schneider. Hee. I do not actually know any Aunts or Uncles in Ontario. So I watch the finale there with him.

Switch perspectives to inside the episode.

Dean disappears, Sam goes nuts looking for him, finds out the demons have sent Dean into a time far in the future in an effort to cut him out of the loop and let them have unfettered access to Sam. This was Ruby's idea. Sam exorcises Ruby (very anti-climatically), and goes to find Castiel.

Castiel (who is gravely injured because of what the demons were doing to keep him out of the way while they time-napped Dean) says he can't go forward in time. He can only show what's already happened. Castiel goes on for a bit about the observer effect and quantum physics (*glee*) before Sam cuts him off, pleading with Castiel that there has to be a way to get there because the demons have already sent Dean there. Castiel looks deeply saddened, and says that if Dean has gone forward in time, the future has already been observed, so there is no way it can be changed anymore.

Sam doesn't care and keeps asking for help, thinking Castiel is still saying no. Castiel is all defeated and resigned. Without warning, Castiel grabs Sam by the head, looks intently into Sam's eyes, and then burns his damnfool angel self out to send Sam as far as he can into the future before Sam can realize what he's doing. (My subconscious may be lethally mean to Castiel, but it has amazing special effects. Whoa.)

Sam arrives in the near-future, in shock that Cas just obliterated himself to get him there. Sam resolves to not let Castiel's action be in vain and gets even grimmer and more intense and goes looking for Dean.

Searches and searches but can't find him. However, Sam does find the house where the demons built the time machine they sent Dean to the far-future with. The machine uses 'Soul Burner Technology', which is exactly what it says on the tin; powered by the destruction of souls. There is a nebulous epic battle between the time machine demons and Sam. Sam wins, barely, and feeds the time machine some demon souls (Sam's pissed) and goes forward to the far-future.

The far-future is very very 'future-y', with flying cars and neon everywhere and massive cities full of spires. There is no war, environmental problems, poverty or serious crime. Everyone everywhere Sam goes is happy and well-adjusted, and not in a robotic or mindless sort of way. The future has lots of drinking and loud music, and also has a general Hard R rating (which in the dream came up as a splash screen every few minutes) for nudity, sex and general care-free public lewdness, of which there was apparently a lot but it was all off-screen. (I never saw any of it in the dream.)

Sam manages to find an old white Ford F-150 that runs along the ground because he can't fly a car. He did find a car lot with an Impala in it at one point. However, while the basic shape was right, it was kind of like the Impala as built by someone more used to building giant anime-style robots. It was angular and there were far too many flashy lights. There was also an AI system with a wise-cracking robot head sticking out of the roof. Sam sticks with the truck.

After a while of intensive and grimly purposeful rambling around in the far-future, Sam starts getting 'He was just here!' from people. He races through a bunch more urban/suburban/rural areas, (including the Grand Canyon, a futuristic pie factory, and a massive cement ditch half-full of water (with a bunch of happy hooting people chasing Sam, but it turning out to be a mistake because they thought he was playing a game (I have no idea, in the dream Sam drives the truck into the side of the ditch and goes to confront the people chasing him, all set for a fight, but they all start jumping around and singing. Sam wasn't impressed.)))

Eventually, Sam's frantic rampage through the far-future searching for Dean gets back to the same house with the soul-powered time machine. It's perfectly preserved and there's velvet ropes around things, like a museum. Sam apparently didn't notice this when he arrived, either that or it turned into a museum after he arrived; the dream was not clear on that point.

There's a crowd of people in the museum, who say 'Oh! He just left!' in cheery unison. A scientist-guy in a white lab coat who may or may not have been Professor Frink from the Simpsons came out and explained that the use of the time machine was strictly outlawed but they'd come up with an alternative energy source for it a long time ago in case of emergencies, and slapped a giant happy-coloured "NOW 100% SOUL FREE!!!" sticker on the time machine, which now that I think about it looked a lot like the old mainframe from my college.

The scientist-guy sent Sam back in time, not to the present and not to the near-future but to a time between the far-future and the near-future. I guess far-near-future? Where Dean went.

In the far-near-future, people are all pretty calm and mellow, but a lot of people seem kind of ill, but in a 'no energy/lethargic' sort of way. People are sort of drifting around in a mellow daze. Everyone's in really good spirits, even the really really sick ones, who are all lined up sitting on a sidewalk for some kind of possibly-medical procedure.

Sam finds Dean right away, because Dean's the one going down the line helping the sick people. He's giving each person a kind of tattoo made of shifting, moving light. Everyone has a hollow spot on the left side of their chest because their heart has been removed or disappeared, not clear on that, but no one seems too worried about it. Dean's doing something moderately complex that makes lights swirl around inside this hollow spot, and then tuning it for each person so their pattern is unique to them and never repeats.

Anyway, Sam's overjoyed to find Dean; Dean's glad Sam's there but he has to finish giving everyone these light-tattoos before he and Sam can leave. Dean's been here for many years, tattooing people. The sick people start feeling better as soon as the tattoo is done, and get up and wander away. The locals have been making sure Dean gets food and rest and things.

Sam offers to help do the tattoos if Dean shows him how, but Dean says he's the only one that can do them and he's just got a few more people and everyone will have them. Dean seems really relaxed, almost blissed-out, only sad and reflective instead of happy. At peace. Zen. Sam is mildly freaked by this, Dean laughs it off.

Dean does the last person and says "We can go back now. We need to finish this." He sounds sad, and tired.

Switch perspectives back to me watching with my uncle John Schneider in Ontario.

There's a commercial break. Also we have to go somewhere and pick up my Aunt. I complain loudly because I want to find out what happened, but my Uncle insists we have to go get her right now, and it'll only take a minute.

Of course it doesn't. I watch the time creep around past the end of the episode and am furious, but my Uncle is really worried that we haven't found my Aunt, so I chill.

My Uncle's truck is the only vehicle on the road, but there's really calm happy people walking around everywhere. We stop at an intersection near where I actually live (which is nowhere near Ontario) that's usually super busy. No traffic on the road at all, just lots of pedestrians. I'm really upset that we missed the finale, but getting a little worried about my Aunt too, even though I know she's tough and can take care of herself. (My Aunt may have been Ellen Harvelle)

In the intersection amongst the pedestrians, I see a young ginger cat, and know suddenly that it's Sam in his were-kitten form (Um, see fic here and here)

I jump out of the truck and run up to kitten!Sam and try to find out what happened and where Dean is. Trying to get answers out of kitten!Sam does not work at all because Sam can't speak in his were-kitten form and I just plain don't interrogate kittens, so mostly it was me hanging on to Kitten!Sam, petting him a lot and crying while begging him to change back and talk to me.

So, grasping at straws, I ask if someone standing around can get me some holy water, in case Sam's possessed. My uncle looks shocked (not surprising, since I'm begging a kitten for answers while sitting in the middle of an intersection that still has NO traffic, just all these people standing around watching me). My Uncle says then that holy water hasn't been around since the Cataclysm, ages ago. It's been banned since then because no one can make any, and it hurts people.

I look around and all the people standing around have black eyes. Only it's not full black, it's more of a deep grey. Everyone's possessed. Sort of. I kind of freak.

My Uncle tries to calm me down and goes on to explain that every single living thing on the planet died in the Cataclysm, and that if they weren't possessed, everyone would be dead.

Kitten!Sam just then lets out this enormous, piteous, heartbroken wail, and I get a flashback montage.

Dean and Sam go back in time somehow to the near-future (using the light-tattoo thing to power the soul burning time machine), to find a mass buildup of all the demons from Hell. They are in the process of finally breaking out en masse because the Winchesters have been off faffing about in the future and disappeared from the world entirely between the (former) present and the (current) near-future time periods. All the demons from Hell are spreading all over the world, and it's too late to stop or contain them.

Sam apparently has a last chance demon attack thing that will get rid of every demon on the planet as long as all the demons are topside. This works. However, in the process of eradicating all the demons, Sam manages to kill off every living thing on the planet except himself and Dean. Something to do with their tattoos and the fact they'd already been dead. Again, this happened in the "near-future" time.

Dean, who had been to the far-future and knew what was going to happen and that there was no way it could be stopped, removed Castiel's palm-print from his arm (in some way which was left nebulous by my subconscious and may have involved removing his arm completely, or peeling his skin off, or not) Castiel's palm-print had been a binding link like Meg put on Sam in Born Under a Bad Sign, and Dean actually had become a demon in Hell. Removing the binding let him take demon-smoke-cloud form.

So Dean left his body as smoke and split himself up into pieces, then sent a bit of himself into every corpse, resurrecting all life on the planet by possessing them all. In the process, his personality and consciousness disappeared, except sometimes in large groups. Or at rock concerts. (flashback montage *shrug*)

Dean had learned that this was what he was going to be doing when he was in the far-future, and went to the far-near-future, just shortly after the Cataclysm and resurrection, to put these tattoos on people so the bit of him they got after the Cataclysm wouldn't get loose, because the light-tattoos were a kind of combination of the anti-demon tattoo and the binding link, only encrypted to keep the possession from... getting hacked...? I don't know.

After Dean resurrected everyone, Sam couldn't cope with having accidentally wiped out life on Earth and losing Dean in order to fix it, so he went into were-kitten form permanently and had been wandering ever since, not aging.(Since I guess means the thing with my uncle in Ontario was in the, er, far-far-near-future? My head hurts.)

Anyway, I come out of flashback mode and realize that me and kitten!Sam are surrounded by hundreds of people... it's the Verizon wireless crowd, and my Uncle John Schneider is the one with the clipboard, only it's not him either, it's Dean. I kind of sit there uselessly and boggle.

Dean takes Sam from me and asks him to please un-kitten, everything's fine, all the people are alive and will never die again, Sam doesn't have to feel bad for killing everything, and hey, Sam stopped the demons from taking over the place, yay, and it's not like Dean's not still around, he's just a bit dispersed.

Kitten!Sam is inconsolable. He won't stop wailing, and wailing and wailing and...

...I wake up, because it's actually my cat wailing outside the bedroom door because his dish is empty. Such a drama queen.

So... Yeah. Hell of a dream that one. I may need some form of therapy. O.o

Okay, part of that might actually make a good regular fic. The rest of it is great crack!fic matter. For some reason the future with sex being more open made me think of Jack Harkness.

And I see I'm not the only fan-girl who dreams about the characters. Most of my fic bunnies are from dreams. Ergh.

Hollow on the left side of the chest could be a side effect of genetic engineering...

Anyway, love how your cat was waking you up. I used to have a cat that would fart in my face to wake me up. These two now just cry at me.

anyway, thanks for sharing your dream.

That would be why I keep the bedroom door closed at night now. :-P

holy crap.

and wow.

and, y'know, I think I'd be down with an ending like that :)

you have _such_ a creative brain....I'm consistently awed

If the cat hadn't woken me up and I hadn't had to go to work I'm sure things would have resolved a bit happier for them.

Your dream-self self-censors! That's cute, I think.

Yup, I have epic crack dreams too, I think they happen to lots of people who get really caught up in something fictional. But I've never sat down and written one out immediately afterwards, so all of mine have disappeared from memory.

Poor kitten!Sam! You could have kept dreaming for a bit longer.

I don't think it's self-censoring so much as lack of interest in the subject matter. *shrug* The big R rated screens were funny though.

Poor kitten!Sam! You could have kept dreaming for a bit longer.

Real cat wouldn't let me. Neither would work, really. :-P

Why don't I have dreams like yours? That sounds so cool, in a cracktastic and kind of weird way.

(also- awww, Kitten!Sammy. I adore that whole were-kitten thing. Now I have to reread that.)
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: March 8th, 2009 09:20 am (UTC) (Link)
I usually get dreams like this after a prolonged period of minimal sleep and loads of stress and mental processing at work, followed by a large amount of sleep all at once.

I'm jealous. I haven't had a SPN dream in what seems like forever. Although, your dream made me a little sad. Poor werekitten Sam. :( Also, your brain is mad crazy-cakes. ;)
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: March 8th, 2009 09:22 am (UTC) (Link)
It wasn't a happy ending dream, and for that I blame the cat. He has some siamese in his barn cat lineage and hauls it out when he wants something.

Also, your brain is mad crazy-cakes. ;)

This is somehow not news to me. ;-)
sadelyrate From: sadelyrate Date: March 8th, 2009 09:40 am (UTC) (Link)
Your subconsciousness is adorable. Also creepy, but adorable. The far future with the Hard R splash screen warning takes the cake, though, because I can imagine it. Good gods.

caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: March 9th, 2009 12:49 am (UTC) (Link)
This was less cracky and more tragic and traumatic than the dreams I usually get on these occasions, but it was still weird and fannish enough to share. The splash screens were quite silly though
irismay42 From: irismay42 Date: March 8th, 2009 06:12 pm (UTC) (Link)
You DREAMED this???? All I dream about is being late for work. Or school. Or a combination of both. Or trying to find a toilet when I'm bursting for a pee....
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: March 9th, 2009 12:54 am (UTC) (Link)
Yeah, I get super-detailed crack dreams every so often, there's a few more posted under the dream tag. I don't get a lot of the traditional dreams though, same general implications but it's all buried in whacky cracky imagery. Except when I dream my way through an entire day at work and then wake up and have to do it all again. That really sucks.
From: (Anonymous) Date: March 9th, 2009 06:14 am (UTC) (Link)
So your brain and crack go together like...Frosted Flakes and milk..or something..lol Anyway, it is a wonderful combination, and thanks for bringing back were-kitty Sam--just soooo cute.

caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: March 11th, 2009 05:18 am (UTC) (Link)
Heh. Thanks.

OMG, I love your dreams! This was awesome. ...is it sad it also made me go, "Oh, Dean..."?
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: March 11th, 2009 05:19 am (UTC) (Link)
It's a very 'oh Dean' situation.

*comes out of lurking*
Glad to see Im not the only one getting weird dreams about watching my fave show! That was hilarious!

"Kitten!Sam is inconsolable. He won't stop wailing, and wailing and wailing and..."

*pets kitten!Sam*

There's a few more weird show-related dreams under the 'dream' tag in the sidebar.
