Daily Prompt

The Daily Post had a Daily Prompt today called Fandom, and this is what it said:

Are you a sports fan?

Tell us about fandom.

If you’re not, tell us why not.

And this is my response:

Not really, but I do like playing sports and I do get to play sports sometimes rarely; but usually alone.

I am not really into fandom anything for a variety of reasons so it is no different when it comes to sports fandom, and I rather play sports than watch them.


I can only barely remember part of the end of my last dream from last night which took place at a slightly fictional version of the shopping center by W Park, I probably went to several businesses in the shopping center and I probably went around the sidewalks and parts of the parking lot, and I probably talked to some of my former classmates and several fictional people during the dream.

Most of the dream probably took place on an upper floor of a fictional building near where the Dollar General store and JCPenney should be, I remember a lot of my former classmates being there, but I can remember if this building was a college and/or school and/or business or what it was exactly (it probably was a multi-purpose building).

I think that during an earlier part of the dream that I can not remember, that something happened to my former female classmate BD where she was given a lot of blood like maybe she had been given a blood transfusion, and after this she developed special abilities / powers / superpowers; and she soon learned that it was the blood that gave her these special abilities/powers/superpowers.

I can not remember what all of her superpowers were but I do know that they were realistic and not overpowered, one of the superpowers was probably a healing factor that allowed her to heal a bit faster and better than normal, but that is the only superpower that I can remember specifically seeing in action and hearing about unfortunately.

My former classmate BD soon learned that if she gave / donated some of her blood to other people, that they could temporarily have the same superpowers as her until their bodies use up the blood and/or the superpowers/whatever, and so the more blood that you gave someone the longer they would temporarily have the superpowers probably; and so my former classmate BD donated some of her blood to some of our former classmates and to other people during the dream who asked her for some of her blood, and they each got superpowers temporarily.

Something happened to my former classmate BD that I can not remember where everyone assumed and thought that she was dead and no one saw her anymore after this, most of the rest of the dream involved me going to the bathroom a lot on an upper floor of this same building, and so most of the dream was a bathroom focused dream probably.

The bathroom was a public bathroom in the building that was a large bathroom with many sinks, toilets, bathroom stalls, maybe showers, mirrors, et cetera; and maybe men and women could use it, but I can not remember.

At some point in the dream I was in the bathroom when I suddenly saw my former classmate BD enter the bathroom, I was confused because people said that she was dead and  I thought that she was dead, and she was very pale; and I remember greeting her letting her know that she was supposed to be dead, and I told her that she looked like a ghost because she was so pale and she probably looked sickly or drained.

She seemed very tired and drained and she sounded tired and drained when she spoke, she told me that she was alive, but that she had lost her superpowers when she ended up losing most of her blood somehow (maybe another blood transfusion and/or donating blood and/or an accident); and she was not sure if she would get her superpowers back or not once her blood levels increased again.

Her blood levels were very low and so that is partly why she was so pale and tired-looking, the doctors/nurses/scientists and her did not know if her superpowers were permanent for her or not, we knew that her superpowers are only temporary for people who are given some of her blood; but no one knew what would happen if she lost all or most of her blood, if the superpowers would still be in her new blood that her body makes or not, and so she and other people were worried about this.

It was possibly that her superpowers were only temporary for her as well once she used up most or all the blood that had been given to her earlier in the dream, but it was also possible that the superpowers were now a permanent part of her; and so all we could do was wait and see.

I remember us walking to meet some of our other former classmates to let them know that she was still alive, they were surprised to see her alive as well, and most of them also commented that she looked like a ghost; and some of them asked if she could give them some of her blood because their superpowers had worn off, and we told them about her situation.

My former classmate BD was very weak and I took her to see the nurses/doctors/scientists on another upper floor of the building, they had her lay in a chair near a window with a view to the parking lot as they ran some tests, and as they probably treated her to help hydrate and feed her because she was dehydrated and she needed food so they probably connected her to an IV bag; and I remember one of the nurses wearing a whitish colored old style nurse’s outfit and hat and shoes and stockings, and she was somewhat tall and she had whitish colored skin with maybe yellowish colored hair that was pinned up(?).

I was worried about my former classmate BD and I stayed with her to talk to her and comfort her and encourage her, I probably recommended that she stop sharing so much of her blood with other people because it was dangerous for her and for other people depending on how they used those temporary superpowers, and I probably talked to some of the other people and our former classmates to tell them to stop asking her to give so much of her blood; and I told them that this was not a game and that the superpowers were not a game, and that this was serious and that they should be worried about her health and the possible consequences of using those superpowers like it is only a game.

Most of the people did not seem to care about her, they were like parasites or vampires who only wanted her blood to play around with temporary superpowers for fun instead of to help people, and I probably warned my former classmate BD about this.

Before I woke up it was possible that the doctors/nurses/scientists started to notice signs that my former classmate BD still had a bit of her superpowers left, it was possible that getting some food and water was helping to strengthen her enough to use a bit of those superpowers, but it was not clear if that only the last bit of the old blood that was left or if her body was making new blood with superpowers; and I woke up before we could learn the answer to this because it was going to take a while before we would know for sure.

The end,
