So I realized that I watch way too many shows with supernatural elements. I just had a dream with a bunch of characters from Supernatural, Angel, Buffy, Rescue Me, The Vampire Diaries, Fringe, Lost, and Battlestar Galactica who sat around and talked about their experiences dying and coming back and communicating with the living through dreams and such. It was like an AA meeting where the characters shared their experiences and talked, in some cases, about their hero complexes being like an addiction.
Present: The Winchester Family, Castiel, Crowley, Buffy and Joyce Summers, Spike, Jeremy Gilbert, Bonnie Bennett, Walter and Peter Bishop, John Locke, Starbuck, and an assortment of dead firefighters.
Soundtrack: “The Space Between” by DMB.
At some point during the meeting, Buffy brought up how her friends ripped her out of a heavenly realm, and Dean Winchester dressed her down in an epic speech about her sense of entitlement, the fact that she still had work to do on earth, and how duty doesn’t end with death. Starbuck added that she did most of her best work whilst dead and begged the group to not associate her with “the other more whiny blonde” in the room. Spike spoke up to defend Buffy, as he is wont to do, and was told he was pussy whipped even in the afterlife by Mary Winchester.
Bonnie Bennett and Jeremy also took some time to explain to the Bishops that them calling the alternate universe, “The other side” was more appropriate than they had imagined, because it wasn’t an alternate universe, but they were really dying and coming back when they crossed over. Walter ran straight to a (conveniently located) white board and started scribbling down equations in an effort to, “solve death” while Peter tried to lure him back to his seat with a bag of Red Vines.
Lou from Rescue Me started reciting one of his post 9/11 poems when I woke up.
Right now I’m thinking I should reexamine what I eat before bed and maybe watch less TV. I can’t make this shit up.
