Last night I think I had a combo of almost every anxiety dream possible. I had to take care of a large group of small animals accidentally dumped into where I was staying, important files were about to be deleted from a computer system, two people were stalking me while pretending to be looking at an apartment for sale that I was in charge of and had to clean up, I was wearing a bathing suit and needed to find my shirt, I was late/had missed a book promotional thing I was supposed to be doing with other writers, I was supposed to be guarding Robert Downey Jr. and a small child for Pepper Potts and accidentally left the door open to the room we were staying in. Because of the way my brain works on OCD, some of this happened pretty much simultaneously. While Jack the cat was awake early and gnawing on my feet.

And something's wrong with my left ear. That's real, not part of the dream. I think it's allergies but it feels like I got water in it several days ago and it's still in there.

* If you can’t make it to the Deeper Than Swords George R. R. Martin/Game of Thrones exhibit at Cushing Library at Texas A&M University, some of the Game of Thrones broadsides that are on exhibit there for sale from Anise Press.

* For all the women I have loved who were dragged through the mud

* Information on the pesticides that are killing bees

* Nathan Long: Love Will Tear Us Apart love in fiction

Book I'm looking forward to:

The Golden City by J. Kathleen Cheney. It's a historical fantasy set in Portugal, due out in November.
For two years, Oriana Paredes has been a spy among the social elite of the Golden City, reporting back to her people, the sereia, sea folk banned from the city’s shores....

Okay there's something about guarding RDJ and a small child for Pepper that makes me grin. I'm holding onto this thought...it may appear in a fic at some point.... >_>

That part was very weird and detailed, and I was mad when the dream moved on because I wanted to find out why we were there and what was happening.

Well do you know if it was RDJ or Tony? Either one could use some babysitting, but the specifics for each would vary widely.

In my head I don't think it mattered.

Now that is a professional level anxiety dream. I used to dream that people were watching me through the windows at night, and I was running around the house, trying to lock them and close the blinds. Nowadays I mostly dream about having cats that are supposed to be inside, and cats that are supposed to be outside, and I open the door and... anarchy. One time I dreamed I got to a music festival and the only lens I had with me was my old, slow, manual focus, wide angle Tamron. >.<

I have that one too. It's dark, I'm alone in a large suburban house with a big yard, and I can see people out in the yard who aren't supposed to be there, and I'm running around trying to lock windows and doors.

I love that your subconscious conflates RDJ and Tony Stark.

In my dream world apparently they're just one big person. :)

It's not as though RDJ goes to any great lengths to _dissuade_ people from conflating them . . .

If I was the one to have that dream, the only part I probably would have even remembered was guarding RDJ, and maybe important files being deleted from a computer system, since specific people and anything to do with computers seem to be easy to remember for me. But then I also tend to overreact to the simplest things in my dreams, so the whole thing probably would have turned out completely different.

That's a wonderful fan post, Martha. Thanks for the link.
