Creepy, Creepy Dream

Had a dream last night (or this morning, more properly) in which a group of kids went exploring through a door (which had appeared in a hillside where they liked to play) to a house on the other side. The door closed, and at least some of them were trapped on the wrong side. Probably kids from both worlds, because a long section of the dream involved a kid trapped in a ghostly existence on one side trying to convince the mother of a missing girl (trapped on the other side) that her daughter wasn't dead. The kids could apparently all see each other, though - why? Maybe because they met at the doorway? Maybe because they'd all gone through it at least once?

There was also a lot of waiting to see if the door would open again, and - when it did - trying to see if they could get through quickly enough to get everyone back to the correct world (where people could see them) before the door closed again. They couldn't just camp out in front of the door, because even though they were invisible they still needed to eat, and do all the little things that people have to do.

There was also, semi-randomly, an avalanche; but if I were telling this as a horror story I think I'd just leave that part out.


  1. I think you should develop it and see where it leads you.

  2. On the one hand, I have more than enough unfinished projects already; on the other hand, it would be a lot of fun (well, very creepy fun) to write. And honestly, I'm insanely busy (or busily insane) and really not at my best just now, so it'll probably get added to the "things I should do when I get a chance" list for at least a while yet.


Feel free to leave comments; it lets me know that people are actually reading my blog. Interesting tangents and topic drift just add flavor. Linking to your own stuff is fine, as long as it's at least loosely relevant. Be civil, and have fun!
