Harry Potter dream

Last night I had the coolest dream ever.  It had Harry Potter in it.

I haven't had a Harry Potter dream in like 3 years.  The last one was awesome.  It went like this:

I was working an early morning custodial shift when Harry and his gang came running in.  They were being chased by Death Eaters!

 I hurried them quick fast like a bunny into the freight elevator, closed the doors and saved their lives!  Death Eaters have no idea how to work freight elevators!*

*or, um, how to use the stairs, apparently.
Hahaha.  That was a pretty good dream.

The one I had last night, though, beats it by a mile!

It started like this:  The school headmaster decided to buy an air freshener for his car.
This was good news for his car but bad news for Harry and his gang.

Harry was like, "But wait Professor!!  What will we do if the school is attacked??"
And Dumbledore was like, "Oh I'm sure you'll be fine!  TAH TAH!"

...but they WEREN'T FINE.

 Just like Harry had predicted, the school got attacked!  It got attacked by giant alien ships!

They beamed down a horrible little creature.  It looked like this.
 It's a spider.  But instead of having a head, it has a needle.  The two scariest things in the world combined.

They immediately started taking over the school.
 They, um, weren't very aggressive though.  They were mostly just underfoot.  So, like, the dumb students?  Yeah, they were the first to go.

Harry and his gang had to save the school!!
 Harry had this awesome idea:
 For the next few minutes of my dream, I was entertained by a very energetic Mexican kicking dance.
I have no idea why they aren't using their wands.

Anyways, that worked pretty well until they realized that the creatures were breeding, and had a gestation period of about two minutes.
 I think they gave up at this point.

It must have turned out ok though, because my dream had a weird jump in it and it ended with them going to Shopko and picking out an air freshener for their car.  It took them like 10 hours to find just the right one, so obviously it was a pretty important plot point.

Awesome.  Am I right?  I'm pretty sure when this post goes live I'm going to get a phone call from JK Rowling wanting to buy the rights.  What should I charge?  $20 maybe?  I did spend a long time dreaming it up.  You may have noticed that I left out the most important part: Which air freshener did they end up buying?  

If you want to know'll have to read the book!

That's amazing. It makes me feel so happy. ^_^

I'm pretty sure I can tell you the end of the dream, what kind of air freshener they chose. It was bat guano, of course! That's the kind that works best at Hogwarts.....and at BYU!

Oh Heather, I love you. That was the awesomest dream. Hmm... didn't have any real plans today, but now I have the odd urge to go buy an air freshener. Cheers!

This is hilarious! I love it!

I love the fact that they shop at Shopko. There's definitely one of those at Diagon Alley.

I think I know what happened in the "jump." Dumbledore apparated back to the school and started kicking needle-spider (I vote we portmandu their names to: spineidlers!) butt (metaphorically this time, I'm sure he used his Elder Wand). BUT he only agreed to save the kids if they finished his shopping for him - kinda a switcheroo (obviously he made a portkey for them to return because only he can apparate to and from Hogwarts!)

I love this. I love your drawings. You rock.

I'm having a really hard time deciding which is my favorite illustration from this moste epice dreame, but I think I've narrowed it down to the unsuspecting Hufflepuff (because of COURSE it's a Hufflepuff that would be featured the illustrated attack), and the trio browsing the selection of air fresheners. I have to say that the Death Eater in the window of the freight elevator is pretty fantastic too.

I would so read this book. HP dreams FTW!

I know I already commented on the awesomeness of this, but I gave you an award on my blog today, so stop by if you get the chance. :)

Heather Zundel said...

J.K has already called you for the rights, no? Daniel and the gang are sure to return for a mini movie once they hear of THIS genius! :D

Wow thats some crazy dream you had! Such as good idea for storyboarding practise. You should publish a little book of dreams.Lovely blog.

Lol I think I'd wake up laughing. Once I dreamt about Harry Potter's world too: it was very weird. I love so much when you post, its so much fun! :D

Debbie Barr said...

Thanks for making me giggle.

But not knowing the air freshener scent is going to kill me!

(And hey, I worked BYU early morning custodial, too! Good. Times.)

Caitlyn said...

Hilarious yet disturbing (needle spiders)!

Love your blog! Also, loved the Cougar Photo in the background.

Lauren said...

Maybe they discovered that the alien spiders had a deadly fear/allergy to air fresheners, so the trio escaped Hogwart's and got some at Shopko's. The spiders never knew what hit them!
