Dreaming of the DancingShaman

For the first time since his death almost a year ago, I dreamed of Alex. It was a crazy dream about aliens taking humans from earth (combo of KNOWING and SKYLINE I suppose) to save them from what was to come.

I was there with two people I didn't know. A psychotic little girl and an older girl. The little one wanted to poison the aliens for who knows why. I kept protecting our mentor alien. In the end, I killed the little girl and the other one using the poison the little girl made. It was a hard choice but I did it because I knew the aliens were really trying to help us.

I remember telling my alien mentor I needed a new place to be. My mentor sent me down another corridor where Johanna was. She didn't seem to know me but she welcomed me in anyway. Sent me to the command center where everyone was working.

That was where Alex was. In the middle of tons of people working to run the spaceship. He knew me and welcomed me. "It'll be just like old times. It's not like I haven't shared an office with you before." He set me up at a computer station between him and Lisa. I remember looking around and recognizing so many people.

Alex gave me a hug and said, "I'm glad to see you."

I woke up happy. It was a really good dream. But now, I miss him so much.

Thank you for bringing him to mind so clearly. As I read it, I could see his face and hear his voice. I miss him, too.

I think those are the hardest, the bittersweet memories. I find that they haunt around after I've woken up longer than my nightmares.

Alex always wanted to be an astronaut....

Well, not only was he an astronaut, he appeared to be in charge of that section of things. You seemed to be a recruiter and Lisa was a front line person. I have no idea what I was going to be doing but it was good to sit down with him again.

As i read this, I was imagining Alex in his BSG uniform that Johanna made for him, though the command center was somehow more like something from StarTrek.
On a related note, had a dream about a bunch of us at Pickwick's for trivia night, seems like Alex is paying a few visits this week.

In the dream, he was in a dark blue uniform. I think it was a Babylon 5 uniform. He looked good. But, yeah, I think he's visiting.

I was just thinking of him a few days ago. Thank you for sharing :)
