i was a part of a group of young adults, the zombie apocalypse had been going on for a while, and we were just trying to find a safe place and survive. it was a lot like the (awesome) comic Shoot Around
. lots of /feelings/ and emotions and rival group shenanigans and back-stabbings and heartbreaking sacrifices. i clearly remember being at the 'final stage' area, which was a warehouse of sorts. we were being cornered by a group of zombies. as per usual, i was super important and was the center of some huge plot. i remember retreating to a small room, set up like military barracks with bunkbeds and the like. the zombies were gaining on us, fast, and i kept reliving the same few minutes over and over again. there was a secret passageway in the building, accessible through one of the ceiling panels above one of the top bunks, that i needed to access in order to escape. a few times, one of my teammates pushed me down into the arms of zombies that had broken into the room. sometimes i was the one pushing them down. but the final time, my best friend in the dream turned to me, smiled, told me she loved me, and boosted me up into the air duct. it allowed me to escape, but as i turned around to pull her up, the zombies poured up to the top bunk and yanked her into their writhing pile of filth. their distraction gave me the time i needed to escape, and i was able to get out of the building and give the order to whatever 'zombie resistance' i was part of to blow up the building. i remember looking up at the night sky as the building came down in a blaze, thinking how bright the moon was. i was crying when i woke up.
then i fell back asleep and had some weird dream that the gal who wrote/drew fruits basket had made another manga. this time it was about a woman who had fallen in love with this dude who turned out to be some sort of half-bird mythical creature of royalty who could fly and do magic and all this weird stuff. at some point, instead of reading it, i was part of it (as his normal human girlfriend). he confessed that he wasn't human and transformed into this massive creature, mostly humanoid but with huge black wings instead of arms. he was definitely a one-of-a-kind being, some sort of mythical thing as opposed to part of an ancient species or something. i don't remember much but i think we were in a giant walmart? for some reason?? and like when she/i agreed to be his weird fiance she ended up transforming into this other creature that looked similar and had on these really lovely clothes, also her hair changed color and she suddenly had this lovely eye makeup?? we sorta looked like the harpy familiars on flight rising, only huge. it was super weird. either way that was apparently a big deal because some evil magic organization started to come after her/me and the rest of the dream was us fighting them
