Dream Log: The Seeds to Save Earth

Wake the Sun? »

When you dream, do you remember it? Are you involved in your dreams? Are you the main character? Or are you a silent observer watching the events unfold?  Most of you would say the former, or not remember them at all.  I’m no different from you, and most of my dreams I either don’t remember or full of discombobulating images taken from distant memories or current situations I’ve been stressing about.  But every once in a while I get that strange dream where I am not an actor and witnessing things in the 3rd person.  These dreams have a stream of characters, a plot and a climax.  More often than not, they involve some popular Japanese anime I love.   The last time I had one of these dreams was probably back in 2003, when I dreamed of the great Bishonen Anime Tournament (no kidding) featuring characters from Gravitation, Full-Metal Alchemist, and .Hack (among others). Previously I’ve dreamed about Ronin Warriors (Yoroiden Samurai Troopers), Clamp’s X/1999, Rurouni Kenshin, Weiss Kruez, and various fantasy-esque themes.  This time, the main characters were from Gundam Seed (finally! I was wondering when I’d get a Gundam Seed dream!).

I woke up in a Tohoku Inn at around 5:30am in Aomori with the vestiges of the dreams lingering but fading quickly.  Fortunately, I had the presence of mind to grab a pencil and pad and record it rather than go back to sleep.  The following is what I can make up my hastily scribbled writing.  I take no responsibility for the workings of my deranged mind during the cycles of REM.
