Terrifying dream- MUST READ

Hello everyone. Last night, I had a terrifying dream.

It all started out well of course. I was at the american girl place with stephenswodadancer and we were picking out dolls. She bought kanani, and being crazed by the doll's beauty, I did too. I opened up the box. Inside was a huge stash of clothes and doll sized knick knacks, along with the doll herself. Kanani.

I was thrilled. What an wonderful thing, to be shopping with stephenswodadancer, and buy a kanani for myself! I felt rich.

So, I walked out the door of the american girl place, waving goodbye to sarah and the smiling dolls on the shelfs. The doll box felt perfectly heavy under my arm. Outside, I met my dad. He handed me another rectangle box, and I sank to the ground to open it. Underneath the scarlett lid, two gleaming eyes stared up at me. It was another doll.

Of course I was ecastic. I ripped the lid off and gave my dad a big hug. It was the just like you with short red hair, freckles and green eyes, and my father had thought to pick her out for me! I grabbed the two boxed under my arms.

And suddenly I was at my house. But that is the way dreams work, right? Not everything is always physically possible.

My warm little home had changed though. it was a huge gray house now, with floors stretching to the distance in the most boring cream colored carpet. I had all my dolls in my hands. I wanted to get upstairs to tuck them into their warm little beds, under their quilted blankets, in their little house. I started to climb the cream carpeted stairs. The walls were whitewashed, and I could feel the gloomyness hanging in the air, there seemed to be no windows.

Suddenly, I slipped.

I caught myself and realized that the stairs were crumbling behind me. And even worse, I felt the soft body slip from my grip, and sonali was being swallowed into the rubble of the smashed steps. They cracks in the carpet were climbing. I tried to reach for sonali, but it was to late, her body was swallowed, and all that stared up at me were her pleading eyes. I felt a rumble. I did'nt have much time. Swallowing hard, I barrelled up the stairs.

I could hear the rumbling and crashing behind me as I ascended the steps. It was gaining closer every minute, but the staircase never seemed to end. My eyes scoured the gloom. And felicity's trusty grip upon my arm gave way. She was tumbling behind me, I could see the flash of her red hair streaming into the darkness. Gone. Just like that. As I continued climbing, I clutched the precious bodies of my dolls. I imagend felicity's bright green eyes sinking into the grubby cement sea. Her body splattered with mud. I had already lost her.

Tears stinging in my eyes, I felt my way up the remaining steps. Only 12 to go. 11. 10. 9. 8. 7.

WHHOOOSHHH!!!

Suddenly, a huge crashing wave of water smashed me against the stairs jagged railing. My arm flew out from it's tight clutch at my waist. I watched in horror as the screaming wave of gray water engulfed samantha and sarah, sending them into a tumbling mess down the stairs. I heard a scream. And then realized it was my own.
I reached my arm out hopelessly. They were gone forever, but I still tried, groping into the moist, gloomy air. I dropped my arm to my side. I realized how stupid it was, my dolls were gone, along with the wave that had vaporized at the bottom of the stairs. Cold water trickled around my toes. The chipped purple paint on my toenails glared sharply at me. "Look what you did" It said. "You let go of them. They drowned." I stared into the gloom, feeling a knot grow in my throat. My dolls. They were gone. I slid across the splintered wood railing and into a puddle of gray water. I covered my face with my right hand. I had lost them. Forever. Suddenly, I realized I could still feel the weight of something in under my left arm, firmly gripping to my side. It felt like.....

A doll.

Moving my head cautiously, a dared my eyes to look at it. I gasped.

It was a doll.

And it was kanani.

  3. Whoa. That was intense, and quite terrifying. I hate it when stupid nonsensical things that have absolutely nothing to do with what you were just dreaming about suddenly happen in your dream, don't you? That my be a sign that Kanani is an evil doll. Maybe Kanani was controlling the things happening on the stairs, trying to get rid of your other dolls, so she could be the center of your attention.... dun dun dun duuuun :I that was pretty scary sounding.

  6. One thing what happened to the JLY?? But anyway, i think the dream says once you get Kanani, she will be your favorite, and your other dolls slip into unimportance

  9. maybe it is a sign you are growing up or kannai is you souldoll like samantha is mine

    ReplyDelete
  10. Wow.

    I read somewhere that dreams often relate to something you are worried about. Are you worried about your dolls? Do you want Kanani? Or are you worried that you may be growing out of dolls?

    I think you should calm down, and rest, and quite frankly, just forget about this dream and cherish the dolls you have now.

    I am no psychic, but I hope this helps,

    ReplyDelete
  14. woah creepy i think you shoud buy kanani cause maybe you mixed your good dreams with bad dreams hope it helps!

    ReplyDelete
  15. perhaps this deeam meant your frightened of the fact of losing interest of your dolls so your thinking and thinking and thinking all night about what would happen if you lost your dolls and finnaly you go to sleep thus the following dream you see most people have dreams of what they think about before you sleep you obioulsy love yourdolls and so you try to make urself confident your never going to outgrow them if that isnt the case then i guess my dream of beging a phycayatrist is fadding away to my poundless pit

  16. Scary! You're such a good writer, though. Do you want to be an author when you grow up? I think you'd be a good one.

  17. I bet this is telling you, that Kanani is one bad girl...or...your other dolls could have been whispering in your ears all night "that's right...you don't need Kanani...you need USSSSSS" xD Just a theory. :D

    ReplyDelete
  18. Woah! Intense! I don't think it means that you shouldn't get Kanani! I think it means you've been contemplating it alot as long as thinking about your other dolls and this is your brains way of saying "I need a break!" So don't think to hard about it! We all have had dreams that frighten us and confuse us and do all sorts of strange things to our point of view! Sorry I'm a bit late to tell you all this!

  19. I think I have the most reasonable explanation.

    Guilt. Thats all. You feel guilty because you want Kanani, but you have your other dolls too. This dream is because you were thinking about this at night, making a dream.

    You want Kanani yet you have other dolls. You dwell on this at night, thus creating this dream. It DOES NOT MEAN you shouldn't get Kanani. It kinda means you should. It basicaly is like telling your subconcious mind "I CAN get Kanani. I CAN have my other dolls to. And I CAN treat them all fairly." That is what you must say. Kanani is noth the center of your dreams, but your guilt is. Keep doing what you love, and it will all go away. That is what I think.

    Of course, I may be wrong. Im not a phsycological phsycopath. Im just a HUGE FAN OF BASILMENTOS!!!

    I hope this helps you.

  30. If you live in British Colombia,I can understand what you are scared of.Ever since the Japanese tsunami, almost all science channels have been broadcasting that there is going to be a earthquake bigger than the one in Japan that threatens British Columbia, Washington, and Oregon. Although the channels say that it wont damage California that greatly, it is enough to give me nightmares.

    Moving my head cautiously, a dared my eyes to look at it. I gasped. It was a doll. And it was kanani.
    I read it as I felt like a doll moving my head cautiously I dared to look at my eyes. Then I re-read it and got it right

  38. Wow that's some dream..do you think..do you think your dream was trying to tell you something? to let go of the things you love? they always say if you love it set it free and if it comes back to you it's yours but if it doesn't it never was Kanani came back to you..so I guess it's saying...Dolls were ment for you or something but that was a scary dream.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Maybe it was telling to get a hold of your self. If you get too many dolls, your going to forget about Sarah, Felicity, Samantha, and Nali.

  47. That sounds horrible! But, of course, sense I am commenting NOW when you made the decision to get Kanani, I can't just start saying, "NO DON'T GET IT!" can I?
    The point is... Huh. I don't have a point.
    Well, you are a very good writer and the details, OH LA LA! You would make a great author!
    Thanks for telling us your nightmare,

  48. that sounds so scary! I have 3 dolls and my favorite is Kanani. So, what did the dream mean was Kanani saving you or something or was she the cause of all that.

  52. HI, how do u make the videos? I am a big fan do u make them on an app or computer? Thanks!

  53. Oh my gosh! that is so sad :'( But the great thing is that u still had Kanani. But all of the others lost forever i was about to cry. My AG doll Sophia says she is glad it was just a dream cuz if it was real she would have a heart attack! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  54. well im no psychologist but if something or someone is chasing you that usually means you are trying to reach something, like a goal. or since you lose your dolls in the dream maybe at some point something real bad might happen to your dolls or you might be worried that you are getting too old for ag.
    i say you should just take it easy. cherish your dolls.dont think about the future. the present is a gift. and when the time comes for you to stop buying dolls, you'll be ready.

The story behind it all....

In September of 2009, a pre-teen girl named Anna was searching youtube. She no longer used her american girl dolls. they were behind the closet doors, gathering dust. She reluctantly glanced over, then began to type in the search bar: American Girl Dolls. A video came up. She clicked on it. 14 coustumed dolls slid onto the screen and began to dance together, waving their arms and doing cartwheels. Anna was shocked. How could this be possible? This was.... Amazing. She quickly searched a few more. There were hudreds of videos, by usernames like stephenswodadancer, AGlovejess and girloftheyearstudios. Anna couldn't believe it. This new discovery was incredible! She ran to her room and pulled out her two dolls, felicity and samantha. She grabbed her camera. And, she began to film.


It is now four years later. I work on videos almost everyday, usually stopmotions. I have gathered quite a few veiws and subscribers on youtube, and I really appriciate when people comment on my videos. I have come unbelievibly far, but I still leave up those first videos from two years ago, because for me, those are the memories that I will always treasure. I am so happy that I can share them with you.
