Re: The World of Dreams
There is a mountain that reaches from the sea to the sky, well past the atmosphere and on into space. On the side of it is a stairway stretching the entire height of the mountain. It predates all known records but is in good shape, being hewn into the rock itself.

If you climb the stairway you will pass many skeletons of people who tried to make the climb before you. You will certainly need a spacesuit to make it all the way yourself. At the top you will find a flat platform about the size of a tennis court. There is nothing else, just the curve of Earth below you and the black of space above.

A surprisingly young nomination for a new pope voted on and sworn in in a single day. Very fond of wearing a fursuit whenever doing anything public other than performing the Mass, and armed with knuckle dusters even when doing that.

What appears to be an underwater suburban home. Underneath it is a fenced in mass of kelp playing the role of "lawn".

A city built into a cliffside. It is the only known settlement where humans and humanoid animals of various species co-mingle without racial friction. Gondola lift and cable car are the main forms of public transit, and ziplines replace bicycle paths.

An experimental drug recently passed by the FDA intended to treat some vague series of conditions, but which has rather severe side-effects. It causes lethargy, hallucinations, and skin hair or bone to take on a metallic appearance and then become glow-in-the-dark.

A cult headed by a witch in aforesaid cliff city, most members being teenagers. Meetups take place in a decrepit Scandinavian Longhouse and most rituals involve the teenagers taking this drug, often with alcohol.

A skull-shaped ship sort of like Brainiac's spaceship, but black instead of silver. It's powered by superheroes who have been captured and plugged into it, but the only one I remember is Captain V_______ , whose was called either Vennherel or Vainglory and wore a white hooded cloak festooned with red maple leaves. After he was unplugged he desperately wanted to use the bathroom on his rescuer's ship, but it was already occupied, probably by someone who had already been unplugged.

A militaristic occupying force flying around in discoid flying machines. They have a strong ideological objection to helping people out of simple generosity, so much so that one of their pilots gets into trouble for rescuing a stray child.

One time I dreamed a boss battle. There was a dragon flying over a big pit, with two people on opposite sides of it with a sword and a bow respectively. Then after the dragon was beaten there was a fight where they ran around in a cemetery.

A two story house has an explosion that rips a circular hole in the roof exposing an upper bedroom to the elements but mysteriously doing no damage to the furnishings.

Re: The World of Dreams
Another two story house, this one build by someone who takes a "a mans home is his castle" seriously. The walls are thick stone. The doors have at least three layers to get through with a door that swing out, a steel grate and a door that swings in. Also for some reason there's a duplicate door on the second floor that opens out onto air.

A major postal facility that acts as the base of operations for magical girls who double as letter carriers.

A preteen boy who likes to transform into a grey-skinned ghoulish creature in order to try to frighten people.
