I'm currently writing a web series about dreams with a few other guys. Nightmares, the basis of ones own fears, when you were first terrified, etc. etc. I've had my fare share of nightmares and what not myself, but I was curious about what the crunchyroll forum peeps would have to offer. Would be greatly appreciated and cheers




EDIT

details of ones nightmares would be awesome. if you want credit, credit will be due no worries on that aspect.

I don't do nightmare, actually I like to feel fear in my dreams, it's such an intense emotion. But what I hate the most at night is sleep paralysis...it's like crazy, I get trouble breathing and hallucinate shadows and I can't move...it's not as frequent as before but man it's hardcore

Nightmares are a frequent occurrence for me. However, it's actually a lot more frequent than I realized. I often don't fall asleep until anywhere between 3 to 6am so if I'm sleeping in the same room with a heavy sleeper, such as my boyfriend, nobody will notice anything. If I fall asleep closer to the time they wake up, I'm told when I eventually or abruptly wake up that I was either crying, looking like I was in pain, saying something or just making noise or moving about - or a mix of these. There has been many times where I've suddenly heard "are you alright/okay?" and I've woken up to my worried boyfriend and I feel like I have an extremely high fever and I'm just exhausted as though I didn't sleep at all. I also had to share a room with my brother and mum on a holiday at the end of last year and almost every night they told me I was crying in my sleep (I had no recollection of this), and on one of the last mornings there I woke up and screamed at the same time, I only partially remembered what went on in my dream but not what made me scream. Sometimes it happens every night and sometimes I don't have nightmares for a few weeks, a month even, but then it comes back.

dude i agree. its one of the freakiest shit to ever happen. I've actually looked up a few things on lucid dreaming which ive been trying out and they work rather well. i was gunna put something along those lines into the series as well. its gunna be episodic for the most part. each char dealing with nightmares in different ways but having it all tie in at the end. one that i already have written is the one with sleep paralysis. thats about all i can tease though

So, are you trying to recreate people's nightmares, or am I wrong? Because mine are pretty messed up. Very creepy, very vivid, and I can almost feel everything going on in them, although they do not make any sense and jump randomly from place to place.

what your having are sleep terrors, or night terrors. theyre different from nightmares from what i've learned. minimal details being recalled. waking up sweaty but cold, difficult to wake up even from outside sources. usually these pop up with younger kids, pre teen ish, but have been known to show up later in life. could be anything thats causing that for you. id seek a bit of help for it as they are common of a lot of things that could spell bad news.

creepier the better. I have been wanting to work one of the episodes about his or hers nightmares jumping from terror to terror. My dreams usually bounce around like that so the concept has always been on my mind while working on this.

Hmm. There are occasions where I remember the entire dream and they often relate to places I've been in my life. When I feel feverish, I am extremely hot not cold and my body doesn't seem to cool down for a few hours. I have had anxiety for 4-5 years now and I do notice that the more anxious I am, the more nights like that I will have. Other things can wake me up (it's quite embarrassing given I'm nearly 18) but in my dreams sometimes I will feel like I really need to go to the bathroom and I will be panicking in my dream trying to find a bathroom or something to do about the problem, it's like I don't think to myself "oh, I can wake up right now and just go", instead it feels like I'm trapped. Often I'll wake up and have to make a run for it.

Those a pretty interesting and they all have a main focus for the most point. It would be easy to tie in the woman you cant recall into the series. thanks for sharing with me it means a lot. Also in dreams, you always know who you see. You've seen them in passing, or from a distant memory, or pictures or what have you. You can't remember something you've never seen. So this would be mystery woman could likely be someone you know, but you just can't remember.

i know its a bit cheesy but after starting this searies ive been kind of obsessed about my own dreams. you should google lucid dreaming its kind of amazing once you get the hang of it that and writing a dream journal. just nonsense you can remember from the night. that tends to help remembering your own dreams

Actually I've tried it before, back in 2010. My sleeping patterns were even worse back then. I would still be lying there awake at 7am and have to get up and leave for school within the next hour. I didn't manage to lucid dream though. If you have any tips feel free to PM me, I'd appreciate hearing them.

Oh gee, nightmares are horrifying for me. But I'd love to read the web series~! I dream in colour alot. In my dreams sometimes idk why I can seem to 'control' what happens. Like I remember a dream where I fell off a cliff an in my head, it seemed as though I was there watching my dream and the dream turned into one of a rewind screen when me as a figure was repeatedly saying in ny head 'rewind stop stop rewind go back'. Then when it stops the dream continues again without me falling off the cliff.
Sometimes I dont wake till my dream is over or I dream of me dreaming. I had had dreams where I thought I was awake in real but what was really happening was in real i was still lying sleeping and dreaming while the me in my dream woke up and started moving and doing things.
Often when I dream its either nonsense, really happy, or terribly horrific.
I have some examples of nightmares I've had:
