This one was kind of cool. I had a dream that I recall being largely about the advantages of a pull-switch fire alarm system (it was this kind of seminar on the different kinds of smoke/flame/whatever detectors and why those ones from high schools are the most efficient). There were also some bits about family and family friends convening outside of what I think was my old high school. But I also remember thinking about The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword and how I hadn’t beaten it. And then I started thinking about the first dungeon in the game. The kicker is that I started to recall sections of the dungeon that weren’t actually in the game. And that’s when I realized that I had had a Zelda-styled dream some time in the past in which I was exploring a dungeon just like the one I had been recalling in my dream. The only problem is that I don’t think I would have remembered that other dream if the aesthetic of my most recent dream’s dungeon didn’t match it so well. And then my memory of my older dream made me remember an even OLDER dream, also involving some Legend of Zelda shenanigans.
In conclusion: I have had some pretty awesome Legend of Zelda dreams. I’ll write down some keywords so that maybe I can remember them for a later post: Tiger soldiers on moon pillar; zombie infested flooded main field; really freaky zombie tunnel in northern regions; moblin guards in forest area (overhead view); temple of white marble and concrete with some kind of sewer-type system; beach with a dungeon; and then the memory-trigger when thinking about the forest dungeon from Skyward Sword.
