Well, this is gonna nag at me 'til I write it down, so here goes. The beginning is a bit fuzzy and didn't even make much sense in the dream, since apparently some events took place before the dream started. It was sort of if people started acting out a TV show, and the cameras only got turned on 10 minutes into it. Anyway, April was working in this strange place that was like a combination research lab and movie studio. Sort of a crossover of the 2 best known versions of her, as a news reporter and a lab assistant. Anyway, she worked more in the lab part of it, but her boss was in the movie industry. He wasn't a director, maybe a producer? Anyway, he did something behind the scenes having to do with them. Near as I could figure out, April's job involved reconsulting and researching ideas to make them as realistic as possible for the movies. Anyway, she would routinely sneak into the lab after hours to anylize some photographs she had using the equipment there. One night an assistant caught her at it, and it was brought to the attention of her boss. The story she told, and I assume it was true, was that someone, it was actually Don as I recall now, had given her the pictures that they had managed to capture of sprites, (yes, as in little nature spirits), and she was figuring whether or not they were real, in order for the company to make a movie about them. Anyway, it was known throughout the building that she had her 4 brothers living with her, (they were living in her apartment at the time), and for some reason he demanded that she bring all of them in to meet so he could meet them. Of course this made April incredibly nervous and stressed, and of course she couldn't let him know that.
So she tells the guys, and they decide to go as if nothing is wrong. At least they were wearing their disguises, I think. Thinking of it now she had sort of the air of a stressed mother herding children along the sidewalk, although from what I remember they were well-behaved for the most part. The exception was when a young kid got in their way. I don't think he had a bike, but still somehow he was blocking their way or something, and Raph yelled at him. I don't remember exactly what he said, but it included the word dirtbag, (a more common variation of Raph's usual "whackbag" perhaps). Anyway, when they got there I was starting to wake up, but I was in a deep sleep and it was a long process, so it was the kind of thing where I was sort of pushing the dream along, and what happened was more suggestions than clear events. It would've made sense that Leo would've been the first to introduce and reveal himself, and I think at one point the boss's secretary walked in on them by accident, screamed, and was let in on the "family secret" as well.
I just want to add that the part about about April sneaking into the lab after hours was probably inspired by an author on fanfiction.net that I like, Connie Nervegas. In her stories, April attends NYU, and sometimes uses their science labs to do work for the guys. As for the rest of it, all I can say is that I was watching a couple of early season 1 episodes over again last night.

I just spent a week and a couple of days in Florida. Actually, my mom and I drove down to Delaware, spent the night, and flew down to FL with my great aunt the next day. What a crazy trip it was! Anyway, I for some reason had a terrible time trying to get on LJ using my braillenote, and I had 4 fandom-related dreams during that time, so I finally got around to posting them now. Two were for Lilo & Stitch, one was a short and kinda vague, ('cause I don't remember it), Harry Potter dream that nonetheless bears posting, and one was an Adventures In Wonderland dream. So here we go!

The first was probably the clearest of the dreams. I dreamed that Jumba had an adult daughter, who came to earth to see him. At one point he asked her how she had found him, and she said something about finding him through the prison records. They were having an arguement because he had apparently owned a house on Queltaquan and had sold it, but had gotten far less than what they had expected for it. She was a bit ticked off at him, but mostly she was just angry and upset at the situation in general. An interesting thing to note is that 2 or 3 times during the dream he called her "little girl" in tantalog, which it turns out was a term of endearment on Queltaquan for a daughter or equivalent younger child-type person, which is why he called Lilo that all the time.
I think realistate was on my mind because my great aunt had recently been given a condo, which is why we went there.

The next dream I had in Florida, and it is extremely sad. It is based on a heart-breaking L&S story I read called "The Meaning of Exile," and takes place years after Lilo and the rest of the ohana we know and love, including Pleakley, have died. Jumba and Stitch are the only ones left, Stitch has basically gone feral and was prowling around the backyard scaring off anyone who was daring enough to enter the propperty, and Lilo's descendants had abandoned them out of fear and misunderstanding. In the dream, Jumba was old and sick, just as he was in the story. It was made slightly better by the fact that Lilo was there, so there must've been some timetravel involved, especially since Lilo was still a little girl. They were talking, and I don't know what about, but I was struck by the overall picture. They were the only 2 characters in the dream, leading me to believe that everyone else was dead. So there's Lilo, this bubly and viberant child, and there's Jumba, this sick and very sad old man on his way out... That was all there was to it, but it sure made an impact!

The third dream, I bearly remember enough to make it worth posting here, but here goes. It took place in a classroom, and it was Ginny's last year at Hogwarts. Harry and Ron had come to visit her, and somehow, even though he was only 18, he had become the minister of magic. Ginny mentioned casually to either Harry or Ron, I think it was Harry, that she had been attacked by Narcisa Malfoy, and Harry got upset. He asked Ginny heatedly why she hadn't told him sooner, and how he was supposed to protect her if she didn't tell him these things. I think that was about it.

The AIW one is another one where I'm slightly mad at myself that I didn't right it down, or at least post it sooner, because I've forgotten the first bit of it. It was another Christmas special-type thing. What I remember started out in the queen's palace in the morning, could've even been Christmas Eve or day. I remember the tweedles being there briefly, but don't remember what they were doing. The queen, the rabbit, and Alice were also there. Alice went off to visit the caterpillar; I think she wanted to learn how to juggle or something like that. She asked him if he could juggle, and he told her that he could, but he could only juggle rocks. He then preceded to demonstrate, until he went to hand her something, (I don't remember what it was but it was smaller and lighter than the rocks he was using), and injured himself somehow. It was only a very slight injury, but he acted as though he were mortally wounded. Alice turned to Crystal and said something about being a young adult or growing up. I thought this meant she was going to take care of the caterpillar herself, but instead the queen, and I believe the rabbit and tweedles came by. At that point Alice just sort of disappeared from the scene. Music started up, sounding like a march, and the queen started singing about how great the caterpillar was, in a song that sounded a little like the March From the River Kwai. It started with his name, which comically turned out to be Hippity. As in Hippity Hoppity Hypnotist, but just Hippity.
I can't speak for any of the rest of it, but I think the caterpillar giving Alice advice on juggling came from the fact that The Rules of the Game was the last episode I listened to. Not my favorite episode, but I figured I'd give it another shot. Still not on my favorites list.

Well, I hope you all enjoyed, or at least didn't mind too much, this little trip into my subconscious. Sorry the entry was so long, but I thought I'd get all of these in at once.

I guess I probably should've given the other meem a chance to soak in a bit, so to speak, but when I saw this it was so cool I wanted to post it right away. It's from that same FF.net profile.

Fandom meem!Collapse )

Wow, it's been a long time since I've been here! Anyway, this is a meem I found on a profile on FF.net, but a more serious meem than most. You can leave your results in replies, or if it's too long, which I think it may be, then just put it in your own journal. I've got another, more light-hearted one after this to make up for it. I added one or two to it that I thought fit. Put a star next to the ones that apply to you. The original poster put them in bold, but I can't see that so...


On to the meemCollapse )

Just to be clear, the first part of the sentence is what you respond to if it applies to you; the second part is the stereotype.
