Lucid Dreams, Sleep Paralysis, Nightmares, McElroys (1/?) Show more
I woke up at some ungodly hour and braced myself for my usual 3 AM nightmares. I've learned to deal with them at this point. Just bum-rush the monster or goblin or murderer and when you touch them you wake up.
This was one was a weird one, though. Instead of horrible spider-demon... it was Justin and Griffin McElroy sitting on my dresser, talking about their favorite video game mechanic of the year.

Right about when Justin made a sarcastic quip about declaring "climbing on things like a squirrel the mechanic of the year," I asked them if I could take a picture to prove this was all real and they posed.
Typically in dreams there's stuff that doesn't work right. Written text is nonsense. Time flows when it wants to. So I recognized that this was a dream because my cellphone camera just showed a mess of colors.
But then it focused.

And that's when Chris Grant, Polygon's editor, came in and told the boys, "we need to go now." I chased after them into my living room and reached out to grab his arm and wake up, but I didn't...
I touched his arm. I felt his arm.
"Wait, I'm supposed to wake up!"
"Uh, yeah, this one's a little bit different..."
Time slowed. Light twisted and shined as if going through a million prisms. My home was aglow with infinite rainbows.
And then I woke up.
Honestly Unsurprising. I've suspected for a while now that Polygoneers are creatures of the fey. XD
