Just Fighting the Demons...

I had another dream about two nights ago. In my dream, my brother (also bandmate in the Society of Gloves) and I were playing a Castlevania-type game, but we were actually in it. Cool, for sure. We made it to the area around Dracula's castle (which is pretty much the centerpiece of all Castlevania games, Dracula's castle), which was actually on a cloud in the sky. So imagine a castle built on a cloud in the sky...all right?

We were fighting all sorts of bad guys, but we weren't quite in the inner keep of the castle. We somehow made it to a cave area, a kind of hidden entrance to the castle (in my mind at least), when we were suddenly attacked by Dracula! I didn't expect to fight the last boss at a penultimate stage of the game! Furthermore, Dracula wasn't in the form of a dashing vampire - he was a werewolf! Cool...

So we fought Werewolf Dracula inside the cave, hoping to drive him outside, where it was daylight. And so we did. But remember that outside also meant a cloud without any ground to stand on...

All three of us - and possibly other minions - started the long skydive outside of Dracula's cave. The sun was our ally, tearing at Werewolf Dracula's flesh as we descended to Earth.

Somehow, my brother and I, as well as Werewolf Dracula, landed safely on the ground. We were in some sort of European village - the quaint kind that Rick Steves would recommend in his PBS show - and Werewolf Dracula drove the battle into a nice cottage, to keep away from the sunlight.

In side the building, the last of Werewolf Dracula's flesh fell off, and he was no longer a werewolf but a slightly taller-than-man, bat demon! Kick ass, man, kick ass! We fought Bat Demon Dracula until I somehow strayed away from the dream, and I'd like to think that we finally beat him. Otherwise, it would be a waste of a video game-esque dream to not beat Dracula.
