Ok, backstories for what I gathered it this dream it was weirdly vivid, this dream takes place in a world where there are humans and neko’s, but humans are racist towards the neko’s, anyways it start with me in a park bent over looking at the flowers, this dream was really vivid, the color of the flowers were blue and yellow they were mixed I think, but I got up and turned around I see a neko in a cloak I think, it was either a cloak or a Japanese outfit, she touched my chest with two fingers and my entire body was encased with ice, then a split second later the neko was gone and the ice shattered like glass, but she was behind me, I was about get up and then my neck started to feel extremely cold, then I think I was knocked out, but when I woke up I got up and headed home, but I saw people giving me weird looks and whispering to each other, i never made it home though, this whole bit is a bit of a blur but I remember I got it a fight, I crossed a little bridge then after that everything was clear again and I was at a friends house, he didn’t know who I was and I was super confused, I told him it was me, and he squinted his eyes and said “Logan?”, I said yeah and he said,”you do notice you have ears and a tail, right?”at first I thought he was joking, until I looked behind me and saw that I had a tail, I looked in a mirror and saw cat ears, I told him I couldn’t go back to my normal job, he agreed with me

My Dad passed away in front of me in my dream
Real life- My dad is 55 and has been extremely active his whole life. I mean,, he was never home. He was always out fishing, hunting,boating, etc.. About 8 months ago he woke up and out of nowhere was completely deaf in one ear and has been life changing vertigo, tiredness, exhaustion since. It was so so sudden and he is not the same man he was because he is extremely limited.
Anyways, I guess all this worry about not having answers and with him at his age just having problems like this so completely sudden has worried me.
I dreamt last night I went to his house amd he was on the couch laying down and then I realized he passed away. I CANNOT describe the amount of pain amd heartbreak I felt. I started SOBBING and screaming, I tried to remain calm when I dialed 911. I ended up texted my friends saying I'm now a member of the dead parent club (all my friends have lost their parents young and they joke about this club in real life) and then all the sudden my husband came in to make sure he wasn't barely alive because my husband was certified in life saving measures. Turns out he was barely alive but im unsure if it was going to make it. I had hope he would
But yeah, that dream was way too real for me. I'm 23 and I'm really close with him and I know it will happen eventually but I'm not ready and I think it manifested in this nightmare.
Anyways, thanks for listening.

I am a deer man. The devil is behind me and stroking my ears.
In my dream, I am part human and part deer. Kind of like an anime in that I am mostly still human, but I had deer ears on top of my head (also human ears, too) and maybe deer nose and eyes.
Behind me is what I assume or interpret as the devil. A man with long horns, but his face looks either goat-like or dragon-like. I recall him having a long neck that looked lizard-like, which went along with the dragon-like appearance. His hands could move and bend like human hands, but they also seemed talon-like. He was taller than me by a foot or two.
He is standing behind me and at first rubs his hands through my hair to make his way to my deer ears, where he strokes them together. I can see all this very clearly as I believe I am looking through a mirror or am seeing this as the spectator but still can feel what he is doing. In truth, having my deer ears stroked feels nice. As I continue to watch and feel him stroking me, I notice he keep nodding his head in agreement. I feel he is answering "yes," but I do not fully recall the question.
As good as this feels, I sense I could be in danger, though I am uncertain if I am or not. The fear alone is enough to cause me to start to wake up.
I am starting to wake up; the end of the dream is a bit unclear... But he tries to say something which I cannot hear. He presents to me a bone, which comes from him. I am uncertain if the bone came from him picking his teeth or picked the bone out of his neck. The bone is either a collarbone, rib bone, or neck bone. As I wake up, I sense a feeling as if he is upset that I am leaving without first accepting his offering.
At this point, I am awake. What do you think of my dream?

What exactly does this dream mean?
It was a room. Empty. Black, bit with white lines. As if you colored the lineart of the walls white. There were no lights but there was a faint glow, just enough for me to clearly see. There was...something in the corner of the room. Crying, muttering to itself, drawing on the walls with what I thought was a red marker. But as I inched closer, I realized its fingertips were cut off. And it was drawing with its blood. The blood was bright, not like normal blood. It was like, neon red. Very strange.
I don't exactly remember what it was drawing but it was drawing the same symbol over and over again. It was whimpering to itself. My brain automatically went "Help it, it's hurt" So I put a hand on its shoulder. It didn't even jump or get startled. It just stopped everything. It lowered its hand from the wall and slowly turned its head to face me. It had strange features. It was tall, skinny. But it still had like, basic human anatomy. It had a nose, lips, a chest, muscle definition (of whatever muscle it had) It was just a completely black skinny human, but with crazy eyes that were completely white. And they were...scribbly. Like if you took a white pen and angrily scribbled a circle on black paper.
It stared at me for a second, before saying in a raspy, pained voice. " You're like my art in a lot of ways." It moved closer to me. I smiled slightly, " How so?" Its hand curled around my neck, but not choking me, as it leaned into my ear and whispered, " You were created. You have blood. And..." It leaned in with its hands still around my neck, its lips almost brushing against mine, " I can rip you up whenever I wish."
With that last word, it dug its fingers into my neck. Literally. Its fingers went through my neck, piercing the flesh. I choked a little bit. Then like a movie, it cut to a different scene. Back to it drawing on the walls. Then it cut again to it curled into a ball, sobbing, whimpering, muttering. Then I woke up with the horniness of a thousand 13-year-old boys. Which was hella confusing. So like, what the fuck?

Real weird dream a couple nights ago.
So, it was Christmas night and all through the house, I was sleeping and that’s all I care about. Anyway, I had three dream cycles that nights involving me waking up several times, but right before my second cycle ended the weird ass part of my mind cranked its motor.
It starts out with me walking out to some random patio, an open garden with a frame around it is in the center. While I’m walking down a few steps I start to hear a narration. “Mathematicians have this weird thing, where we scream at each other and then start kissing,” I keep walking and I see iguana size geckos coming out of the garden, and IRL I’m terrified of reptiles, so I try to avoid them. But they all start screaming like people, and the narration continues. “We keep screaming at each other and keep getting louder until one of us is the loudest. We call them the *forgot*,” then when I turn around something behind me licks my ear, makes a smooch noise, and screams like a “REEEEEEEEEEEEE” without the R.
