My dreams have ever been a source of inspiration for me and amusement for others. Not sure why but the majority of my dreams involve me on the run, saving children or the world. Or they are just strange (Like one dream that had my ex-boyfriend inside fridge and every time anyone opened the door he would say ‘The phone is ringing’….don’t ask…I don’t know either.)
Last night I had a number of dreams and one was just a little bit more vivid and disturbing. The gist of it as I emailed my best friend was
It started when i was young and an orphaned princess and Gurgi (from the Black Cauldron), the boy who might have been a stable hand, and I were running away. But the new queen and her hunters captured me in the maize fields but the others got away and I grew up never giving up on rescue. The queen would take women dress them in skin suits with their mouths taped shut and she blinded them and then would hunt them and shoot them in the back only one day it was the grown boy to save me and I killed the queen and tried to kill her lover by strangling him only I couldn’t do it and he tried to stab me and my Hero boy threw a dagger past my head into the guys eye and killed him.
Strange I know. This isn’t the first fairy tale like dream I’ve had and I’m wondering if I should be creating a collection of dark fairy tales if I could turn them into real stories. Yes I know, as if I don’t already have enough projects underway. But it would be cool, or maybe an anthology, invite others to share their own dark fairy tale stories. Hmmm I like this idea
