A creepy dream I had that had me feeling paranoid all day.
The beginning of the dream was confusing, and though it may sound sexual, it was not at all, but it involved accidentally downloading a virus while looking at porn. A pornstar and a guy trying to sell a kayak came to my house and talked to me while I was in the shower. Then my mom came in my room and saw these two random people, and then she left, as well as those two people. That part of the dream isn’t what creeped me out.
The next part seemed to be part of the same dream, but it felt like someone had flipped the switch from a nonsensical dream about nothing in particular, to a more dark and foreboding dream.
I got out of the shower and the people from the previous part were gone. I hadn’t totally forgotten they were there, but I had stopped thinking about whatever confusing situation had happened.
I walked into my room and the lights were off. I went to turn them on but they had been cut. I tried my lamps and they had been cut off too. None of my lights would turn on. There were also single things missing, as well as things that those two people seemed to have left. A single one of my shoes was missing. But one of the people had also left behind some tanning lotion.
Now that part of the dream still contained elements from the last part, but it transitions into the final part. So my lights have been cut and things are missing. This next part is what left me feeling paranoid.
I go into another room and my family is in there. They tell me that someone was just murdered very close to our house. I look out the window and see two short clowns riding small bikes down our street in the night, honking their horns. That was the end. Really creeped me out. Interpretations?

I (16f) had a dream about a girl that doesnt exist, caught feelings for her, then she died pretty awfully?
I didnt even realise it was a dream, I was in school with my friends but started getting overwhelmed and having a meltdown which are pretty common for me only this time I physically left school grounds and was in the parking lot trying to calm down, I met a girl with faded dyed blue hair in a braid, slept in makeup, big PJs under a big coat, her name was Charlot and we joked about how it was spelt weird, she looked like a mess but was really pretty to me. She was in this like small van she was living in? This is the weirdest dream I’ve ever had because I could ask her questions I was thinking and she’d respond but I had no control over anything else in the dream so I don’t believe it was lucid. It sounds dumb but i started catching feelings for her, she was funny and cool but came off as cold, we bonded so much, she even taught me a few life lessons but then suddenly her drug dealer came wanting money, she told him to leave her alone then he sliced her neck and killed her right infront of me and I woke up in shock. I’m kinda hurt about this because i bonded with her so much only to find out that shes not only dead but a figment of my imagination. I’m writing this all down a couple minutes after I woke up so sorry if its all over the place, does anyone know what this could mean?

I dreamt I ate my clitoris as if it was a meaty snack last night. Should I be worried?
I don't remember much but at first I was alarmed. Like why did my clitoris come off and did it look like a round-ish thin slice of chicken? I don't know why the fuck I ate it. The dream moved on quite fast after that. I think I ate some random candy as well.
Was that just a weird thing I dreamt? Does it have a meaning? Google ain't telling me shit. Perhaps I am simply going crazy.

Need help interpreting a dream about being cut open.
It was a school meeting in an auditorium, in which the staff believed one of us was hiding something inside ourselves, and to find it they had to cut open a part of our stomach. The woman who sat beside me was getting cut open, and she gave the impression that this was something she was used, based on how unfazed by any of it happening to her, as I saw her getting stabbed, and handling it with pure ease. It becomes my turn, and I start to panic. Despite my frantic act, the lady (staff member) began to start cut my stomach open anyway (using a pair of heavy duty scissors). I began to try forcing myself to deal with the pain, but it became unbearable, to the point where I starting screaming and threatened to hit her if she would stop.

I dreamed I saw a dead friend, who told me I would die on the anniversary of her death.
I had a good friend who died last year on October 17th. She dated one of my good friends and as such we grew close. Important Characters are Me, my friend Kyle, my friend Roy, my deceased friend Rose, and another friend Alisha.The nightmare is as follows.
It started with me, my siblings, and my mom packing up her car. We were seemingly leaving and trying to do so in a hurry. But I got the impression we took to long, and when we began to pull out of the driveway we hit my friend Kyle's car as he was trying to pull into the carport. We canceled our plans to leave and me and Kyle decided to drive to what I think was a high-school reunion.
We arrived at the event, and it was almost like a chapel/gym hybrid with large windows towards the front of the room. I saw most of the people that I went to high school with conversing and interacting with each other. I saw my friend Roy who was our senior class president cutting up pineapple and putting it into a drink. He said he didn't have enough pineapple and me and my friends laughed at him for it. Now the nightmare/dream starts.
I walked outside for some fresh air, and when I came back I saw my friend Rose, who is dead, and my friend Alisha who is alive. They both looked like spirits however. I asked Rose how I could see her, and asked if I was going to die soon. She said yes I was going to die, she started becoming more solid. I asked her if she could as God of I could live longer. She said that she would ask but its going to happen anyway. She started getting more solid, so I left the room to try and escape my death.
As I walked into the foyer to escape, a blonde skinny teenager came in. He pulled out a gun, and I was shot with either lightning, or the gun. I don't know which but I felt myself dying. I was then teleported to a city block where I saw a newspaper on the road. I picked it up and it had a picture of me, saying I died on October 17th. The day was Friday. I woke up and wrote the dream my journal quickly. I then went back to sleep, and had a dream where me and rose went to Wendy's just like we used too when she was alive. I ordered her food and we hung out.
That was the end of it, and it's not as scary as some experience. But I woke up sweating and scared. Thanks for listening.
