In My Dreams (seen)

by Pantstrovich | created - 13 Aug 2017 | updated - 6 months ago | Public

Works which take place in someone's dreams much of the time, or have a significant dream sequence.

I have decided not to include Alice in Wonderland nor The Wizard of Oz, because I believe they were meant to have taken actual journeys to alternate dimensions or something along those lines. Dimensions that may or may not include a world of dreams. Mostly I think they were meant to be a different place.
