Broken image guy?
Another weird dream tonight, not really a nightmare, but still pretty violent:
There was an unrelated part before this dream where I was telling my dad about a Belgian celebrity who had just died (this guy actually died, two days ago) and my dad was telling me he couldn't care less, and couldn't remember who this guy even was (in real life, he does know him, he was a presenter of comedy programs, a columnist and more). I was walking down a descending road with my former neighbour, a forest hill to right and a descending slope to the left. There was also a bus stop somewhere. He was being a dick to me, trying to intimidate me, until two people crossed our path. I didn't recognize them both, but one of them was Travis from Continuum:
I casually told my neighbour that was a guy who was on television (so at that point he was the actor), then the 'view' changed to a close-up of Travis' face, getting angry for some reason (so at this point, he was not the actor, but the character). Knowing his reputation for killing people for no reason, I told my neighbour to run, so we did, and Travis (and his accomplice, too, I think) came running after me.
The road ended into some sort of square open space, and someone was waiting for me in a car. At this point, I was no longer myself in the dream, because I had blonde hair and looked differently. The dream also forgot about my neighbour, who was nowhere to be seen. 'I' jumped into the car, and the driver (a girl) started driving around and drifting in circles, trying to slam into Travis or at least keep him away. He's unnaturally strong in the show, but it could be enough to kill him.
At this point, for some reason, the open space was being fought over by a lot of casual, weaponless people. There was no explanation, but in the dream I felt some had come to help 'me', while the others were working for Travis. The view shifted to Travis sitting on top of the slope, away from the combat, looking over the battle (which is very atypical for him). Something in that 'scene' gave me the revelation that 'my character' (because it wasn't 'me') was some kind of extra-terrestrial being in the guise of a human, and so was Travis, and that was why he was trying to kill me.
'I' opened the door to the car as it was still drifting around in circles and told the girl to stop it, that I would lure Travis into the open and that she had to ram the car into him as he came at me. The car (I contemplated jumping out and rolling dramatically but I felt it would kill me so I waited until it stopepd) stopped and I got out and ran up to Travis, mocking him for having tattoos (which he doesn't in the show) and looking like a tough guy while staying out of the fight. Eventually he jumped down and ran at me, 'I' gave the sign and the car smashed into him, killing him.
There was a black-out, and next thing I knew the battle was over, I was in one piece and looking into a monopoly box, looking for somewhere to write down my reslts, because I wanted to keep record of my kills and take the credit for killing Travis (actually, I didn't kill him, but eh), implying this was somehow all a game? Anyway, it wasn't the worst, but it didn't make much sense either, although I can see where most of this stuff comes from, as it often is with dreams I can make sense of it's a bunch of things I thought about / had on my mind that kinda just melded into one.
