Afternoon of January 25, 2015. Sunday.
This dream seems to be a "repeat" or "replay" of a dream from the 1970s (or at least a fragment thereof), possibly due to seeing the same 70s Avengers comic book again (in PDF format though), though my dream is not directly related to its plot. It involves a more detailed version of Bloodhawk (original version, not the X-Men 2099 one to come up on Google). Actually, there are two Bloodhawk-like characters that fly around, with minor variations.
I am being chased while flying - by the two characters that are somewhat manlike but with claws, wings, and bird heads. They may also have minor dragon-like (or lizard-like) characteristics but do not breathe fire. My dream is rendered realistically in terms of not having a drawing-like feel to it. I do not feel all that threatened.
I fly into what seems to be either a church or an auditorium or some sort of composite of both (as typical features of either are in the environment). All of the movements are quite fast, with an actual mood of perceived acceleration. I am flying down an aisle (which is slanted at about thirty degrees) with one of the strange "bird men" on each side, just behind me (although they may actually be griffins at this point).
Suddenly, I stop and turn around to face my pursuers (floating upright in midair) and raise my arms absentmindedly (but still with seeming intent by my in-dream persona) and unexpectedly, a large burning letter "R" appears about three feet in front of what would be the pulpit, about as tall as a person and with reddish flames, and this scares them off as they rapidly fly back from wherever they came. The flames make a whooshing sound as they sweep upward in forming the "R" and the letter hangs there in midair until my dream ends.
I looked this one up in my older dream records and associated listings and found that I had discovered (over time, and solely relative to my dreams) that I had summarized in writing: "Letter R can relate to energy in a more complex or 'visible' way, though it may also be 'too' stimulating." Obviously, this is only one potential association I had made but it does seem to fit somewhat. (It is partly based on how a child naturally imitates an engine by vocalizing the "R" sound.)
I tend to dream about fire (and manipulating fire) more than just about anything else since earliest childhood, not always in a negative sense, and not always during the hottest part of the year.
