Last night I dreamt that [info]seanan_mcguire and I had a little girl together. The dream largely consisted of ordinary life images — me taking our daughter to the park, the three of us making lunch, being inside Seanan’s palatial and baroque apartments getting ready to go to a party.

(Note: Although Seanan is a dear friend IRL, I have never been to her home, and have no idea how palatial and baroque her residence is. My house definitely is of the suburbia variety, right down to the brown curtains and wall-to-wall carpeting, neither palatial nor baroque. [Well, except for the human body parts leftover from my surgeries and the oddball antiques like my Dahomean tribal throne in the basement.])

Symbolism? Not much beyond the very obvious. Anxiety cues? None whatsoever. Entertaining? Absolutely.

Sometimes a dream is just a dream. And sometimes Seanan McGuire is just Seanan McGuire.

I love dreams that involve elaborate, palatial living spaces.

In that alternate universe, that little girl grows up to be the Dark Queen, terrible and beautiful as the sunrise, and all shall love her and despair.

Wouldn't that be parasitology in Seanan's case?

(Note LJ icon, suddenly amazingly appropriate after lurking in my icon list for years.)

Parasitology is age 7 and up.

And for her sixth birthday, it was My First Plutonium Separator...

(would have been sooner because she was cognitively ready, but she had some issues with Fine Motor Control that precluded it before then...)

As it happens, I have been to her home: and am delighted to confirm palatialness and baroquery. And ponies, My Little, stabled everywhere. Also, cats.

I have one lonely My Little Pony. Maybe I should send it to Seanan's house so it won't be lonely.

That ... would certainly work. On the other hand, the poor wee thing might suddenly find itself a clone with many doppelgangerin: lord knows what that would do to its tender plastic psyche.

Oh, this one's unique. A modded MLP, Mainspring fan art I bought off eBay.

Yes, it's a steampunk angel My Little Pony.

Well, yay. In that case you obviously need to keep it - but you should certainly introduce it to Seanan. She'd be thrilled.

(I once spent a day helping a friend make thousands of little black plastic nodding poodles for an art installation; my Xmas present that year was a modded one, given a coat of glitter and pipecleaner reindeer horns. Unique, and utterly useless, and I still treasure it.)

Hmmm...my brain is coming up with dystopian world ideas where the government attempts to breed writers with each other to create the ultimate writer.

My last dream included the info that a lot of demons are orange, and ergo, the folks with the spray tan that are orange are really demons trying to pass for human in this world.

Which actually makes a lot of sense, come to think of it...
