Dalbun - Slayers, Chronotrigger, SKU...
This one happened when I was spending
the night at a friend's house, and it must be noted that we had
watched the Utena movie and some Slayers, both of which had obvious
contributions to my dream.
At the start of the dream, two of my friends,
who shall remain nameless, led me into this strange square area,
paved with concrete. It was oriented diagonally, so it looked like
a diamond. It reminded me both of my elementary school's playground
and of the Master of War's room in Chrono Trigger. The entrance
was in the lower-right side; there were no walls, but I think there
wasn't anything beyond the room. It was fairly small. Near the center
of the square were about half a dozen people (late teens, mostly
male), and one shadowy figure. At the time, I didn't recognize any
of them. I knew somehow, possibly because one of my friends told
me, that these guys were the enemy, and that they were... (searching
for words here) dominating... or somehow taking control of the square,
which was a bad thing.
"No problem," I said, and threw a Fireball them.
The Fireball exploded as normal, but it had absolutely no effect,
which shocked me greatly. I knew that as long as these people stayed
with the shadowy person, they would be invincible and immortal.
I kept on trying to hurt them, though, and after
much effort, I somehow managed to kill (or knock unconcious, I can't
remember) one of the people, which convinced all the others except
one to leave the shadow guy; I think one of them said that it was
only worth doing these evil things if they were *truly* invincible.
Then I notice the last remaining flunky is a girl,
who shall also remain nameless, but who I had a persistant crush
on at the time. As soon as I realize that, she and the shadow guy
run away, though they can only go in a loop around the square, because
there isn't anywhere else to go (the entrance was still there, but
we all ignored it). I start running after them, asking the girl
why she's with the shadow guy, and she starts crying as we run.
After a bit of conversation, I find out that she died when on a
charity mission in some Central American country (I forget which),
and she thought she could only live through the power of the shadow
I yell, emotionally, that I love her, and she
cries back that we can't be together, because she's dead. I protest,
"But I'm right here, right now! Isn't that enough?" and wake up.
When concious, I soon realized that not only had
I blantantly ripped off movie Touga's line, but that the shadow
figure was Mikage. I'm not sure how I knew that, as he never said
a word in the entire dream and I never got a good look at him, but
that also means that his six flunkies corresponded to the Black
