Dark dream of something that resembled Hel
I woke up in a big grassy field in bright daylight with a giant tent on it (so big it has multiple floors/rooms). The tent was partially transparent and of bright green color.
I was holding a drink. Suddenly, it starts to rain freaking hard. So hard that the whole place, regardless of how open it was, starts to fill with water. People ran and immediately went into the "apparttents" (pun intented (pun intended))
I ran into the tent as well, but could barely make it into the hallway (there was a big tent underneath that was housed under the apartments). The water got above the tent level and the pressure of the water caused the tent to collapse a bit with me caught in the hallway. I was now underwater and stuck inside the tent, and couldn't breathe anymore.
I tried to push myself out but it was impossible, the plastic sides are now pushed so hard against me there was no way to crawl out. The water slipped away quickly, and I got out.
I walked around the tent and saw how multiple people or families were in each of the apartments.
One girl walked out. She wore a black leather coat with black pants, had a katana on her back and a black bandana around her black hair. Basically, everything about her was black.
"You're the new guy?" She asked. "Uhm, I think so," I replied. "What is this place?"
"We consider it Hel," she replied. "Random people go in but they never get out, and bad things happen every day".
"Nonsense!" I said. "This is just a dream I can get out anytime!".
The girl sighs. "Please don't, we already tried everything."
I ignored her and imagined a portal in the grass - a large stone frame appears with a hole inside, with a sign on top of it saying: "Exit".
"See?", I say with a proud smirk on my face. "Now we just have to walk inside".
"Well try it then," the girl says with a smirk on her face as well.
As I walk inside, I notice that I simply walk through the frame, ending up at the other side, while still in that world, rather than waking up.
The girl catches up: "Nothing works, it's not a dream. It's not going to do anything".
I got more annoyed now: "The fact that I can place this door makes it a dream lol, let me try one more thing..." while I focus on opening my real eyes. This time again, proving futile.
"Fuck!" I said. "Ok maybe this is something different, what do I do now?"
The girl replies: "You just have to stay and make the best of it, but really, it's not worth it. I tell you what, we organize fights until death. How about we fight and I kill you, at least you are out of your misery then..."
"But what if I win?" I ask. "You won't, you just got here 1 day. I'm heavily trained compared to you".
"Ok... if that's what we have to do.."
The next day I walk in the cage which is where the fight takes place. It's a big cage made of a leather lattice that allows the audience to look through but without being at risk.
The audience starts to fill: Humans and other creatures such as anthropomorphic crocodiles sit down and my opponent comes in.
When the fight starts, she starts to make a helicopter movement with her katana, flies up, above me, and shoots down with the point of her katana pointed to the floor, straight through my head. The last I can remember/feel is the point hitting my skull as I heard the sound of "a katana piercing a skull". Everything became black after that. And it remained black for a while until I woke up.

Nightmare/ foreseeing the future
Last night I had a nightmare for the first time in a long time. Yesterday I had gotten back from a 4-day camping trip with friends and finally got to sleep in my bed and not a tent floor (that’s not part of my dream) I’m just attributing this factor as to maybe why this dream was so vivid and terrifying? Idk.
In my dream, my boyfriend and I lived in a row house in an inner city town. (We have actually been trying to move to this particular neighborhood for some time now). Anyways, I’m sitting on the floor in some strange bedroom, and a terrifying man with lock black dreadlocks suddenly has his hands wrapped around my throat, looking at me with these eyes like he planned to kill me in the most horrible way. I have never seen this person before (or so I think) and in the dream I have no idea what he wants with me and why he broke into my house trying to kill me. Random fact, in this dream I have a baby brother named Liam in his crib in his room. Also, if any of you watch Shameless, you know the young boy in Shameless is named Liam and this house looked eerily similar to the Gallagher house; rickety, old, and dirty.
My boyfriend is panicking, and somehow in one of those strange dreamy timelines, the man is now outside of my house on my front porch, staring into my window. I keep looking out the window to see more and more people standing on my front porch staring at me like the purge. (Which I haven’t watched in years). They start trying to break the windows and eventually are successful. My boyfriend and I run away and decide to call the police.
I come back to my front porch surrounded by cops and a swat team. This was the only good part of the dream, especially because one of the cops was Channing Tatum in a construction worker costume. (?)
Something I find **extremely odd** about all of this is that I wake up to scroll on Facebook and Instagram, only to see not one, but multiple ads for the new season of Shameless coming out. I had no way of knowing that, I didn’t know when the season would be coming out, especially because I was previously in the woods for 4 days with no cell service or communication with the outside world whatsoever. Shameless hasn’t popped into my head for months, I have no idea why I dreamt about it.
Thanks for reading if you got this far I know it’s long. It’s just been plaguing my brain all morning and I needed to let out this confusion. If you have any feedback, please comment!! If not, still thanks for reading.

I had a dream about a movie that doesn’t exist
I had a dream last night about a movie that I saw with my friends and in my dream I was positive that I knew the movie, what characters were in the movie and where it took place. But that movie doesn’t exist. Anyway I start on earth and I’m fighting in a war it seems like. I eventually die and I wake up in a desert place with a huge tent that I’m walking towards and when I arrived there I walked in and someone said what’s your book number and I said #0937 out of no where and they questioned if my name was AJ (not my name) and I said yes, so they let me in and everyone that I had known was in this tent except for one person, my best friend. so I yelled out “has anyone seen #0378?” Which was his book number. And no one said anything. They were sitting in a circle and someone had me walk around the circle as in a greeting or something and I sat down by people I had actually known for the past couple of years When I sat down I realized that I had a compass in my hand and I looked at it and I passed out for some reason and I saw a cockroach eating a bunch of mosquitoes (don’t ask because i have no idea) and when the cockroach finally ate all of them I randomly said “was that the over pass?” And I woke up and everyone was gone except for me. I walked out of the tent and there was someone there to explain what was happening. I asked what was happening and the solar eclipse was happening but the moon was a lot smaller than the sun (from where ever I was). And there was a big storm coming through and it came my way and my best friend came out if the tent and said to come with him. He led me to a tower and it was very rusty and broken. So we started climbing and we eventually got to the top where a trap door was and we climbed through. Then we heard 2 girls talking at the same time (like the shining but different people) in a room that was down the hall. That when I said “oh yeah this is the movie me and my friend saw but it was at midnight so we didn’t finish the movie until 3 am” which happened in real life and it was with infinity war. Right as we were going into the room I woke up. I was so confident that the movie existed that I looked up every top movies of 2019 and 2018 to see if the movie I “watched” and knew existed and it doesn’t but I still think it does. There were a lot more details but It would be like reading a book. Sorry if this was difficult to read/understand because I’m not good at writing stuff down.

Please help, I had a dream that I raped somebody
So, as the title tells, last night I had a very disturbing dream. This was actually end part of a larger dream where I was with this group of people in the middle of nowhere. I don't know their names or anything about them, but I know we all think of ourselves as family.
Suddenly it's night and I am laying in my tent in my underware sleeping, but for some reason I am nervous. I look around and there is a girl on the other side of tent, also sleeping in her underware. Again, I don't know who she is or recognize her, but I know we are friends. She is by all means beautifull. And then, looking at her, I just decide to do it. I get up, walk to her and start raping her. She is actually asleep the whole time I do it. Except, about a minute in, as I am doing what I am doing, she just wakes up and looks at me kind of surprised. Not in a way that she is scared, just she is surprised. We are looking at each otherfor a few seconds as I am still doing that to her, and then she says something friendly and calmly (like she was still num from sleep). I don't remember exactly what she said, but I know it was something along the lines of "Why are you doing this to me?" I get creeped out and we both retreat to our corners of the tent and sit for the rest of the dream looking at each other.
Now please, can sonebody interpret this for me? I don't know what to think of my mind after this. What does all this mean?

My dream is so specific that I am still in shock hours after, does anyone know what it might mean.
So to start off I'm using a throwaway because I'm going to be getting very personal but I don't want this getting tracked back to me. This is gonna be a very long post so thank you to anyone who reads this and sorry if this isn't very organized I'm on mobile. The next paragraph is to give context to some of the dream aspects.
I currently live in Pennsylvania but I used to live in Seattle with my dad. I would frequently fly back and forth but one day I had to stay in Pennsylvania because the house we were living at in Seattle was sold and my dad didn't have enough money to support us so he left us here. I lost so many of my very close friends that I would call family. This was during Christmas 2019 so at least I got to meet a lot of new family on my step dad's side.
I don't usually dream unless something serious is going on. Examples would be like tests or vacations or Christmas.
I went to school and met some new friends and I was beginning to adapt when covid hit. I basically stayed inside till summer when I went to go see my Dad. He drove from Seattle all the way to pennsylvania and we were gonna drive back. Something was different about my dad and I realized that he had become an alcoholic. He would frequently drink and drive with us in the car. I didn't want to be around him anymore so I hanged out a lot with my friend Gabe. He and I did know eachother before I moved and we clicked before but now we clicked even more. Eventually I had to leave to go back to Pennsylvania though.
Now I'm 14 and covid is still going on so I have to do online school. After a while of doing that I started talking to this girl (I'm a dude) on snap and we started dating. She was amazing and I still love her but a week ago she broke up with me because she felt uncomfortable being loved because of past trauma. I have been playing lots of games to ignore everything that has been going on. So now I'm here.
Now to get into the dream. It started when Gabe called me up and asked if I wanted to walk from Seattle to pennsylvania and I said yes. I flew out from pa to meet Gabe. We walked and we were really prepared we had tons of money. So we are walking and this feels very real.
I remember opening our tents and cooking food. We are in around middle of the us when we meet these teenage girls at there house, so we get to talking and I'm flirting with one of them when Gabe slips away somehow but I didn't notice it at the time.
They lived in a big hill and at the bottom was a restaurant with like the head of a castle as the roof. I go inside her house and I meet her parents and I explain what I'm doing and they think it's cool. She is getting closer to me while I'm talking to her dad as if she wanted to cuddle but her dad was there so I didn't do anything.
I realized Gabe wasn't there so I said I had to go. I called him up on facetime and he was in his room in Seattle and he said that he went to the airport and got a plane home. I'm freaking out at this point so I keep waking and I find a place to put up my tents.
When I wake up I'm back home here and I freak out because I have that feeling of waking up from a dream. I run downstairs and see everyone. So I tell them my dream and they thought it was weird so I decide I'm gonna see where I have traveled in the last 24 hours in Google maps and it shows a line in the middle of the US which is where I was in the dream then it shows where I am and it says that I'm in PA.
I wake up again with the same feeling from waking up from a dream but this time as a Fallout New Vegas character. I'm playing as an NCR agent and a fight breaks out in an NCR camp. I get punched then wake up in real life.
There are so many aspects to my dream that I don't know what part means what. I looked it up online but everything is so specific that it doesn't fit. For me the flirting part might be my need to be loved on a level like that but whenever I do I lose friends in the process. Idk though. Sorry this post is a lot but anyone that made it this far I greatly thank you. I won't be doing a tldr only cause then the whole point is that it's complicated so if I do a tldr it will lose a lot of meaning. Thank you so much.
So to start off I'm using a throwaway because I'm going to be getting very personal but I don't want this getting tracked back to me. This is gonna be a very...
