so i just took a nap and i dreamt that gage and i were in a pax like setting but we got lost and then separated
and suddenly i was in my home town on my home street, but it was, like, warped, there were streets and buildings i didn’t recognize yet i could still tell which way i was oriented even though it seemed like it was about midnight
it was my local area but… warped by woods growing through it and making it dark and scary and ambient and soon all the roads were dirt roads or train tracks and all the spaces between houses were miles wide and filled with trees
the roads still had cars that drove down it, though none of them had headlights on or even lights in the car, it looked like the cars were completely solid all the way through, as if they were just the exterior of cars and trucks and every single one was the color of asphalt and the same color of the roads, and the roads looked.. untextured? like, they were one solid color with no depth or feel, and when i walked on it it felt like i was walking on glass
none of the streetlights were working and only a few of the houses had porch lights that were lit dimly, and none of the windows had lights in them
every single house was fenced off from one another
at some point the houses stopped having porch lights on and instead had string lights up but then those stopped and i had to used my phone as a flashlight, but my phone was at about 30% battery remaining and i still felt like i was miles from where i needed to go, which was not home, i remember, i don’t know where because i didn’t recognize the house we were in but i just had to get there because i think gage was in there??
basically it was like a weird videogame like nightmare that had theme music playing and when i woke up i realized it was the theme from luigi’s mansion so that kind of ruins the tension, looking back
