Default Night time Dream

Has anyone ever had a dream where their mind was connected to a Dragon? This morning I woke from a dream where out of the blue in the plot of the dream was impressed to a dragon. And from the way it felt and what I was seeing it was on a mating flight.

Just before I awoke the flight ended and I was back to my own concious in the dream. When I did awake the alertness I had was very acute and not unlike my Dead man walking feeling I get every morning when I awake.


Just a strange sensation during and after the dream that made me

No, not me. Drems about Pern, yes, but never as a dragonrider.

I had a Pern related dream last night but can't recall enough details for any use. Don't think dragons were involved that much though...

I've had some lovely dreams about being on Pern, walking in all the places I've read about in Anne's books...but I have never had a dragon...a firlizard yes, but not a dragon.

I agree with Anneli, write it down and let it be the start of a terrific fan fic.

Anneli, now that works really well for me. I can wake up and make a quick sketch of something I have just seen in a dream, then refine it later. Several of my Pern Character Portraits, started out that way....like Red Hanrahan, crossing the river. In my dream I was one of those people riding a horse, trying to get across to the other side with everyone else. I woke up because my legs were cold, from wading in the water...found out I had my leg hanging out of the covers... in the cool of the morning

Writing then down would have the same effect of remembering them or for a writer to use in a story.

I like writing but have too many problems with spelling to be good at it. I have a couple of fan fics I have done and one short story based on the game Are You A Warewolf. I have written a long story but have not gotten it typed up.

Kibbie is the same way she like to write stories but her disgraphia gets in the way.
