Once again I do not feel like typing my dreams and so I will not waste much time typing part of the only dream that I can partly remember from last night, I had another dream after this one, but I can not remember it at this time because of the way I woke up and got straight out of bed and I got distracted by other things.
The dream started during the day in a small fictional country that possibly somewhat seemed like Israel at first in some areas and then like Italy in another area and then like Japan in another area, I have no idea how I got there or why I was there, but I do know that I was not the only tourist or person visiting who did not live in this small fictional country because there were other tourists there from other countries as well.
Once again I really do not feel like typing my dreams and so I will give a super lazy overview of my last dream from last night that seemed to involved me being in a fictional new season of the television show The Walking Dead, but my memory of the dream is unclear.
Either several new characters and I joined the main cast/group and we got separated at some point or several new characters and I were in our own group and maybe we came across the main cast/group, either way, we ended up coming across the main cast/group at some point; and I know that we met Carol Peletier, and maybe Carl Grimes.
At some point Carol was in our new group, maybe we got split from the main group, and I remember Carol being a mother-like figure to our group who was kind and she helped teach/train/mentor/et cetera us; and things were going well for our group until we got attacked and taken over by a very small group of people with somewhat futuristic weapons/armor and an armored vehicle with a machine gun or laser/energy gun lead by what seemed to be a real life version of an older version of Cyrus Temple (he wore thick futuristic armor like in the video game) from the video game Saints Row: The Third.
At some point in the dream we were taken to a tall building to a futuristic garage-like building made of heavy metal that looked like it could be moved around to change the layout and/or to open or close it to the outside, a meeting between various groups of survivors was going to take place inside the tall multi-story building near the garage-like building, and the Cyrus Temple-like man and his group wanted to be there for some reason(s).
Mr. Temple did not trust the other survivor groups and he expected that we would be attacked so he had us stay in the garage-like building near the armored vehicle in case we needed to escape if attacked during the night, I am not sure why he attacked our group and took over it, but I do know that Carol and some of our group escaped during the attack; but the others and I were taken prisoner.
As it was getting dark Mr. Temple and his small group were attacked like he expected but the people attacking them attacked quietly by surprise blocking them from using their armored vehicle and so their group lost the battle, and the rest of my group and I escaped; and later in the dream it was clear that I was just an actor on a fictional new season of The Walking Dead because I remember driving during the day to a fictional city to meet with the cast/crew to film a special episode.
The special episode was going to take place in an auditorium on the upper floor of a building and hundreds of fans of The Walking Dead television show were going to be there in the auditorium as unpaid extras pretending to be survivors attending a meeting and the rest of the cast and I would join the meeting, and the entire episode was going to be unscripted/improvised.
I remember parking in a small parking lot near a multi-story brick building in the downtown area of a fictional city, I could see many automobiles parked in larger parking lots across the street so most of the fans were there already, and some of the cast were already there because their automobiles were in the small parking lot where I parked; but not all the cast was there yet.
Carol and a few other cast members drove up and we greeted each other and we walked into the building to join everyone else to meet the fans and get ready to start filming the special episode, in the one-story auditorium that was on an upper floor were hundreds of fans of all ages (but many of them were probably 40 years and older), and there seemed to be no security; and so anyone could walk in and join the special episode, which I thought was not a good idea, but I thought that this was a unique/creative/interesting idea for an episode but I woke up.
I woke up feeling a bit hot, my stomach was cramping, and I had to use the bathroom so I got up to use the bathroom with only part of my last dream on my mind but my memory of that dream is very unclear so it will be missing a lot of details and there will probably be some mistakes in my description of the dream; and I do not even feel like typing my dream today, but I will type it anyway.
I do not remember the beginning of the dream or most of the middle of the dream, I remember being in a slightly fictional version of D during late in the afternoon or early in the evening, and I was helping/working at the CS (or whatever the name is now because they changed the name so many times, and the names they pick are usually not clear or logical or easy to remember in my opinion) Job Center because they were starting to stay open until 8:00 PM – 9:00 PM on one or more days a week, but it was in a different location on the side of the road near where SW’s Paint Store should be and across from FF Bank.
