100 Prophetic Dreams That Mean Nothing

One hundred dreams that SOUND prophetic, but probably don't really mean anything.

  7. Her silken skin glides over your own like the wind over a whisper. It’s too early. The sun isn’t out yet. You turn toward, and throw one arm around her.

  9. A muscled man in loincloth and fur sits cross-legged before a boulder, palms together, head bowed. From behind you emanates a mournful humming. Beyond the boulder, a lush and fertile valley gradually succumbs to a wave of death and decay. Upon the boulder, your own name.
  10. Your face is pressed into a neck; you know not whose. Something hot and thick runs down your chin, and drips in such a heavy stream that you can feel it fall. And you can feel their heartbeat gradually slowing. Beyond, a paladin in shining golden armor emblazoned with an image of the sun raises her crossbow, and aims at your head.
  11. You always imagined the clouds would part if ever you met a god, but it’s the bark of a tree parting now. An antlered and gnarled faced is revealed, with great stone eyes rolling until they come to rest on you. Its voice is the song of a thousand birds and all the crickets of the dusk. “You won’t forsake me, will you?”
