Last night I dreamed that an alien ship (not looking -entirely- unlike the deathstar) appeared in the sky, and fired ‘a warning shot’. We could see it coming like this extra sun in the sky, burning down towards us slowly getting bigger and bigger, until finally it crashed down far over the horizon in silence. We all thought ‘well that wasn’t that bad’ and then thirty seconds later the boom hit, and then the shaking, like a really big, sharp earthquake.
I knew, somehow, that they were here for this thing I had – which was a small weasel in a box, but in its true essence it was a seed. The Ender Seed. A seed of life, a seed of death, somehow a thing that The Bad Guys could use to basically eliminate everything, while at it’s best it could have been used to create everything. I’m unclear why I had it, I just knew I was supposed to keep it safe.
Its nature meant that it was indestructible, the only exception being that it could be crushed under high pressure. When the ground settled, I took off at a run to the junkyard, where I knew there was a trash compactor. The Bad Guys were coming, and I knew that even if they blew up the planet, the ender seed would still be floating in the debris and they’d find it and use it, so I wanted to destroy it before they could get to it.
I got to the place and stood in line very impatiently. Behind the counter were my friend Kit and some other guy, and Kit was busy so I got the other man and asked him to squish the seed and he was like ‘Lady, we’re not compacting a weasel, what kind of monster are you’. I was arguing with him, when One Of The Bad Guys arrived, so I hid it in a little shelf behind me. He (it?) knew came over and started demanding it, but of course I pretended I had no idea what he/it was talking about. He/it started torturing me, making me feel like I was burning alive, and it was very Not Good but I still wouldn’t say where it was or even admit I knew what he wanted. Suddenly the dream revealed that Kit was a super powerful immortal, but he was just trying to stay out of the whole thing / not break cover. I kept screaming out to him “do what I asked, do what I asked” but he wasn’t really paying attention and didn’t get why it mattered, and I didn’t want to say anything more because then The Bad Guy would have known that I really DID have the seed.
Finally I decided it was better to risk it and yelled, “KIT, IT’S AN ENDER SEED YOU HAVE TO CRUSH IT!”. Kit leapt over the counter and grabbed the box to keep it safe, but the Bad Guy was there and was stopping Kit from getting back to the compacter to crush it. There were more alien ships in the sky and we knew we were totally screwed and they’d destroy the planet with the ender seed just out of spite at the end of this. And then Kit opened his mouth wider than any human mouth could have opened and *ate* the ender seed – weasel in a box and all.
Then the immortal, all powerful being Kit died.
And the world blinked and the skies were clear. And we knew that somehow by sacrificing himself and eating the weasel he’d shifted us to an alternate reality where the Bad Guys simply didn’t exist, and we were safe.
