Darkling - 'I Mean Akio Discussing...'
It was just... incredibly bizarre.
See, Utena and I were up on this thing in the clouds. It was a beanstalk.
You know, like from the faery-tale. I *was* Akio. 0_o That in and
of itself is pretty disturbing... Although cool in a way <grin>.
So, anyway, Utena and I were up on this beanstalk, and there are
all these weird poster things hanging all over the place. Exept
there were no *walls*. Anyway, Utena was flipping out about being
up on the beanstalk, and about being with me. She was not happy,
and she had the sword of Dios, and she was running around trying
to get down. I was reading the posters, I think they were advertisements-
but old ones. Like, from the fifties old. "Vintage", if
you will. Then I realized that, hey! Over there is the giant! Its
head and shoulders are sticking throught the platform that made
up what we were standing on.
And it was Shiva. As in, the Hindu god Shiva.
Geez, I have a LOT of mythological crap in my dreams.
Anyway, so Shiva and I (this is Me as Akio still,
BTW) got to talking... About the nature of reality and illusion,
of all things (I found this EXTREMELY ironic upon waking... I mean,
Akio discussing the nature of illusion, c'mon!).
So. We were discussing the nature of illusion,
and suddenly I (Akio-me) realizes that, hey, *THIS* is an illusion.
At this point, I wake up in my bed. This is still part of the dream,
mind you... So, I wake up, and Doug (the Nickolodeon show) is on
TV, and I'm trying to watch it when my mother comes in and tells
me my room is messy and that I need to clean it, despite the fact
that it is VERY clean already.
Then I woke up for *real*.
<a-hem> I think, myself, that the beanstalk
thing MUST have been standing in for the duel arena. I mean, SERIOUSLY,
it's in the sky, and the beanstalk leading up WOULD look an awful
lot like the stairs, eh? And since I was Akio, and up there with
Utena, and Shiva (the destroyer), that must represent...
Shit. I don't know. The destruction of the relationship
between them (you know, the one that was based on lies anyway ^.~)?
The destruction of Akio's illusionary world? Ne, that actually WOULD
makes sense, since Utena was trying to escape. Perhaps, then, the
destruction of innocence? ^_^;; I think I'm making too much out
of this... LOL. Just a DREAM, after all.
