Had a non lucid dream that involved Infinity Gems so can’t let that one go without writing it down. Any Marvel inspired dream is a win, it was a lot of fun even though I didn’t know I was dreaming. The dream only had 3 out of the 6 gems which where Time, Soul and Reality. The dream didn’t play by the rules because it was 3 ordinary humans how each took 1 of the gems and didn’t vaporize not a celestial being. Like any good dream, the gems were just in a box and myself and two other people discovered them. What I liked is they looked very colorful, gave of a nice emission of color light so from an effect perspective it was well done.
The other two people I didn’t know, I find out later the Man’s name is Henry, but in the dream they were my colleagues. We were searching for rare and exotic artifacts which lead us to these Gems. When I grabbed the soul gem, it has a nice effect where my hand gripped solid nearly freezing around it as if it had it’s own gravity, rays of green light emitted from my hand. The female colleague grabbed the Reality gem, it was yellow and she too had a reaction with it. The other colleague who was male took the time gem, it was orange. When he had it however, he had a transformation from an ordinary human to suddenly turning into this slender, very muscular super-villain.
For the life of me, I cannot recognize him from any comic, the closest I can come to based on the costumes and mask is yellow with dark brown like Sabertooth but the mask kind of had a Nite Owl look from the Watchmen. He also lands a cape so is all decked out and radiating an aura of mystical energy. He flies up into a levitation pose and demands that we hand over the other two gems.
Why he got to do a transformation I don’t know maybe he was secretly a villain all along. I refused to hand mine over and the female refused to give him hers so what does the jerk do? Uses the Time stone on both of us aging us into feeble old people. It emits this energy blast and as soon as it hits me, I could feel my dream body age. It was a very fun effect, my hands get old and I feel weekend and feeble. I collapse on the ground still clutching the soul gem as he begins to hover towards me holding his Time gem in front of himself.
But I have an Infinity Stone too, it’s the soul gem and all it really allows me to do is heal the aging effect. I quickly grab the other Gem from my collapsed colleague as she was out cold. When I grabbed the Reality gem with the other hand, had the most incredible surge of power. Dream effects like this are just fantastic. The reality gem gave me a lot more control, I mean infinite control over reality makes it probably the most powerful of the stones.
I stand up a stone clenched in each fist, this new Villain uses the Time stone again but this time I am able to counter its effects and I hit him with this powerful blast of energy that grand slams him out of the building we were in. I help the female and reverse the effects of the aging. She’s thankful and tells me under no circumstances must Henry get these stones and she tells me I have to take the Time stone away from him at all costs.
This break from the action gave me a chance to examine the stones power and when I focused on the reality gem, this caused a very cool mirroring of reality effect almost as if peering into the fourth dimension. It also grants me the ability to fly and levitate so I fly after this “Henry” person.
He’s waiting for me, this time he has more than just his outfit and has this massive energetic sword. The Time stone is now flying around his head like an Ion stone (likely influenced from the old pen-paper days of D&D). I have the reality gem so think I can also play this game and create two highly energized light-saber like swords. As they start to form, Henry … uh sad name for a villain, uses the time gem and freezes me in time.
But the infinity gems I have especially one being reality helps me resist so I can still think and focus on his floating infinity gem and use telekinesis from the reality gem to pull it towards me. Stripped of this power he panics but sees I am still somewhat affected at the moment and uses that to fly forward in an attack.
In my mind, I am wishing I had the Power gem so I can unload an epic energy blast at him, I cup all three gems in my hand and get ready to throw a blast of energy at him, as powerful as I can create it. I throw a beam of energy reminiscent of Dragon Ball Z and it just obliterates the guy and everything else in it’s path traveling way off into the horizon. It was epic, felt epic.
I put the stones back in the box and hand the box over to the female college. I tell her it’s too much power and temptation for me and that these needed to be locked away somewhere safe.
The dream segues to another dream but it was more mundane, I just wanted to share this one as it’s the second dream that I have had involving infinity stones plus shows how dreams can create a wonderful immersive take on a Genre which is something I have always loved about dreaming.
