Chucky - My nightmares consistently include at least one of the following elements: rape, someone killing my loved ones, someone forcing me to kill my loved ones, starving/dying animals, or committing murder for what I thought were justifiable reasons but which ultimately turn out to have been a dellusion (meaning I killed someone innocent).
For example, I have a re-occuring dream where myself and several friends go to investigate an animal cruelty allegation on a farm, and wind up being relentlessly stalked by a madwoman who eventually captures us. I am then forced at gun point to skin all of my friends and knit together a full-body skin suit for the woman's son, who is for some reason skinless and disfigured. The son then rapes me wearing the skins of my friends.
I have several re-occuring dreams; the ones which have the greatest intensity and are the most disturbing often become re-occuring, sometimes with slight variations to the "plot."
