Adding together responses from my journal and dreamtaxonomy. They were roughly similar in relative frequency except that my fiends had more Authors than Readers/Writers where dreamtaxonomy had the reverse, and dreamtaxonomy had more SF. (I have not counted my double votes.) I don't have a calculator to hand so if you want percentages you'll have to do them yourselves.

Total respondents: 39.

Endless Packing: 9
Amusement Parks/Aquariums: 8
Tunnels/ Passageways Underground: 25
Work: 26
The End of the World (disaster happening): 17
The End of the World (in the aftermath): 14
The Old Flame: 17
Dipping into and out of Authorship: 25
Dipping into and out of Reading/Watching: 28
Having No Pants On: 19
Committing Crimes: 16
Zoo Escaped & Run Wild: 3
SF Adventure: 21
Dinosaur Wood: 3
Faeries: 7

What we learn. The most common of tropes, like dipping into and out of watching the story, work, or passageways underground are not universal. That some things are more common than others. That the unusualist dreams, such as, to me, endless packing, or my own, dinosaur wood, are, nevertheless, shared by others.

I wish I'd heard about detachable penis dreams in time to put it into the mix, but we already know they are not unique.

Since I've never had a Faeries dream, I want to know what happens in those. Are they like faery tales?

Tut, tut, crime committers.

Should have said: Having No Pants On (with no shame); Having No Pants On (with embarrassment).
