Sharing My STRANGE Past Dreams (all book related, of course) With You!

I have decided that the best way to return to blogging in these dire times is with a fun post. So here we are! 

This wasn’t originally supposed to be a post! However, I was thinking about dreams the other day, and I realized that when I was younger, most of my craziest dreams had to do with Harry Potter (and Percy Jackson).

Without further ado, here are some of my bookish dreams!

I was Harry Potter’s twin sister.

This dream was really interesting, because… Harry and I actually have a lot in common and we’ve already established that we are indeed the same person.

The basic premise of the dream was this: I was Harry’s twin in the womb, and I was born first, but since the Potters had just been expecting Harry, they kind of… didn’t care about me as much? (It doesn’t make sense, but since when do dreams make sense?)

Later, Dumbledore took me away (like the caretaker he never really was) from the Potters and raised me on an island, where he taught me some cool magical spells. How did he do this outside of Hogwarts, you ask? I have no idea. It’s a dream! 

But many years later, Dumbledore was finally ready to show me to the world, and I just showed up in the middle of Harry’s Fifth Year at Hogwarts. I knew so many amazing spells that I put Harry’s Expelliarmus to shame, and I even hunted down some Death Eaters in the process!

I was kidnapped(?) by Harry and his friends.

I believe this was actually my first HP dream, and it probably happened because I had just finished the series for the first time.

In this dream, I was traveling somewhere with my grandparents, and we stopped driving so we could take a break and enjoy some scenery near a river. I had packed The Sorcerer’s Stone in my luggage, so I took it out to look at it. 

But nearby, I noticed an old brick house, and I decided to walk up to it, with the book in my hand. Somehow, the ground below me shimmered, and Hagrid and Harry stepped out of the ground to greet me. 

They then proceeded to make me walk into the house with them, and I didn’t really want to, but I was also curious to see what was so great about this old house. So I just… walked into the house, and suddenly, we were in Diagon Alley! 

From there, Harry and his other friends made me get into a car, even though I wanted to go back home. I mean, it was nice to be in Diagon Alley for the first time, but I was worried about my grandparents! 

Eventually we had a few shenanigans, and then they sent me back home. It was fun, but a little strange!

I was married to Sirius Black, and we raised Harry.

Okay, everyone, stay with me. This one is probably the craziest, for several reasons:

  1. Um, I was married to Sirius Black? haha, I wish!
  2. I think I was like thirteen years old when I had this dream.
  3. It was a reoccurring series dreams… meaning I had a long stream of continuous, back to back, episode-like dreams in this strange alternate universe. As in, every night, I dreamt another installment of this dream series. 

How do I even begin to talk about this.

From what I remember, this strange series of dreams didn’t have a particular beginning or end – I was simply married to Sirius Black, no questions asked. I guess I had also been friends with the Marauders at Hogwarts, because everyone trusted me to help take care of Harry. 

For some reason, Sirius had decided to inherit 12 Grimmauld Place, so we were living there while raising Harry. It was an interesting time! For most of the dreams, Harry was around 5 years old, and he often liked to make Quidditch drawings and play with little wizard toys. 

And then, of course, it was nice to be romantically involved with Sirius Black for some unexplained reason. 🙂

I was stranded on an island and Nico di Angelo did not help at all. 

Wow okay, I guess I’m just constantly scared of being abandoned on an island, huh? 

In this dream, I was on a field trip with my younger sister, and we were on a bus to somewhere unknown. But then we got kicked off of the bus, and we were suddenly stranded on an island! 

The inside of the island was fenced off, so we couldn’t go anywhere except for the border we had landed on. For a long time, we desperate tried to find some way to get in, and just when we were giving up, Nico appeared out of nowhere! 

He claimed he was there to help, and we were so relieved! But then he jumped over the fence with amazing strength and hopped into a large hot air balloon with Will Solace’s face on it, and floated away without us.

What had just happened??

Thanks, Nico.

I taught Leo Valdez how to do… magic? 

I’m not really sure what the beginning of this dream entailed, but it basically involved my family hosting the main characters from Heroes of Olympus at a vacation beach house we don’t own in real life. 

At the beach house, we were all having fun playing with Percy and his water abilities, and Hazel was doing some cool things as well, but Leo got sad that he didn’t have anything to do. So I came up with a solution: we would learn how to do magic together! 

The next thing we knew, we had learned some random spells out of nowhere, and were using them to replicate Percy’s water abilities. And then, throughout the trip, whenever Leo got stuck on a spell, I had to help him out. 🙂 

I know the dream was a lot longer than that, but I don’t really remember anything else ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  1. Yes, I have to say there is a theme here. Islands. Wait, isn’t that what people dream about after a break up? I think that’s a thing. 😅
    Anyway, this is hilarious.
    The only time I had an Wizarding World themed dream was before the second Fantastic Beasts movie came out and I just dreamt that I was watching it/being there. But the whole plot somehow just consisted of Newt and Tina kinda wandering around New York at the side of the river? It also had something to do with gold but I never saw any. I just remember that I was thinking in the dream “This is awesome. I’m so happy that the second movie is so great as well.”. 😂 I don’t know. Dreams are weird.

    1. I agree, there definitely was an island theme for some reason! 😂 Although I’ve never had a break up, so I guess that’s not a thing for me, haha

      That’s a cool Fantastic Beasts dream! I feel like Newt and Tina kind of wandered around for a lot of the second movie, so maybe that’s where that part came from? 😂 I think I also had a dream about a new Harry Potter movie, where I was waiting in line to see the next one, but by the time I sat down in the theatre it was time to wake up!


  2. This was amazing to read. Dreams generally make absolutely no sense, and I think I’ve had a few weird ones with characters from books like that. I think I had one about being in Six of Crows??? I’m not sure, but it was a team like Kaz and co and I really think it was with them and we were having so much fun. What I love about them is how vivid and real these dreams are, and how disappointed I usually am when I wake up 😂😂

    Great post!!! Loved reading it ❤✨

    1. Thank you, Rukky! 😊 My dreams are often very strange, but I’m glad I’ve had so many bookish dreams, haha! A Six of Crows dream sounds really cool! And yeah, I’m usually disappointed when I wake up, especially if I can’t remember why I enjoyed the dream so much! 😂

  3. These should be real books?? Honestly, I loved these all so much and cackled at the “I was married to Sirius Black” 😂. I’ve never had a bookish dream, not one I can remember at least, but this makes me wish I could—it makes a good story 😂!
    I hope you’re safe and healthy, Xandra 🙂.

  4. Oh my gosh I love everything about this post!! This was immensely entertaining, thank you for bringing a smile to my face. I actually laughed at loud at the “married to Sirius Black.”😂I mean…I’d be up to a marriage with Sirius and raising Harry??

  5. omg i love all of these dreams!! i love how wild all of these dreams are — my dreams have always been super bizarre and everyone around me always thinks something’s wrong with me lmao. but i love how your dreams were so book-related when you were younger! i probably have had quite a few but i only distinctly remember one where i was surfing with percy and annabeth and also somehow watching the lightning thief movie with them, and then it somehow morphed into being chased by the villains from the mysterious benedict society 😎 but also i Love how realistic nico sounds in your dream — i feel like he would definitely leave me stranded on an island irl lmao!!

    1. Thank you, May!! My dreams are always super weird but kind of make sense from time to time 😂 I wish I still had as many book-related dreams as I did when I was younger!

      And your pjo dream also sounds hilarious – I can’t imagine watching the Lightning Thief with Percy and Annabeth, haha! And that’s definitely something Nico would do to us all, I agree

    1. Thanks, May!! I’m glad I was able to make you laugh for a bit 💕 I loved the dream of being Harry’s twin, it was such an funny thing to think about 😂

      I wish I knew why I had so many cool dreams when I was younger! Maybe I still do but I just don’t remember them?? I also used to write down my most interesting ones so I didn’t forget them immediately, but that was back when I had time to relax before immediately jumping out of bed 😌

      I hope you’re staying safe and healthy as well! 💕


  7. Nico abandoned you on an island and jumped in an air balloon with Will Solaces face on it!?!? That is definitely my favorite! Although, these are all amazing dreams, and they seem so vivid! I once dreamed that I was at camp half blood, right after I reread the whole Percy Jackson series, but I don’t remember what cabin I was in or anything! This was such a funny post to read!

    1. Thanks, Aria! The dream when I was abandoned by Nico was definitely one of my strangest 😂 It’s cool that you also had a dream about Percy Jackson! I like so many of those characters that I wouldn’t be surprised if I had another dream about them
