I had a detailed and very disturbing dream.

A couple and their young son went for a vacation to a sunny vacation town. They left their son alone for a bit, and he was abducted by criminals. When the parents found the criminal leader to ask for their son's return, the crime boss told them that they would only return their son if they would kill another boy by feeding him drugs until he dies. This was apparently so the criminals could test their drug on the child. The parents were very reluctant to do so, and begged for another option. But the crime boss told them it was the only way, or else they would never see their son again. The criminal organization was trafficking a very potent and extremely addictive kind of heroin that drove people mad, and they displayed the results of their drug. They showed adults that were addicted to the drug. One had a large open wound on his thigh, but white fluid was pooled in the wound instead of blood. He jabbed a needle into his own wound to try to get more of the drug into his body. Others were so sick from the drug that they vomited, but then knelt down to lap up the vomit from the floor because it contained the drug and they wanted as much as possible in their body. The addicts knew that they shouldn't be behaving like this, but they couldn't help themselves because the desire for the drug was so strong. I awoke before the plot line of the abducted child was resolved.

I was sitting on a couch, and slipped back down behind the cushions up to my chest.
I somehow misplaced my pants in the process, so I started handing out all the lost random items from under the cushions to people so they wouldn't reach in to look themselves.
First coins, then wallets, balls of wool, game consoles, desk lamps, small chairs...

That sounds... entertaining...

I had another bizarre series of transformation dreams last night. Started at an animal shelter or breeder where for some reason I decided it would be a good idea to buy a wild african serval cat and bring her home to my brother. She was nasty and it was difficult getting her home and when I was right outside the door she somehow turned me into a wild cat (presumably another serval although I never saw my own face).

And that's how the first dream ended. Later in the night after waking up once or twice I had another dream where I was still a wild cat but now I could talk, and I was immediately picked up by a police officer who took me to be interrogated and asked me a series of increasingly stupid questions about who I'd spoken to at some point in the past:
"Did you speak to your wife" ("I'm not married")
"Did you speak to your landlord" ("I don't have a landlord")
"Did you speak to your laundry lady" ("I'm a wild animal that doesn't wear clothes")
And the whole time I'm thinking "what an idiot."
At that point I noticed the one-way glass in the room was very dirty and I still couldn't see my reflection. I started to seriously wonder what sort of wild cat I actually was 'cause my tail seemed very long for an african serval. Then I woke up.

After I woke up I remembered a couple things that might have been relevant to the dream but I didn't "know" while I was having it.
1) That the police "character" interrogating me had probably never interrogated a talking cat before and was just as lost as I was. My reaction of "what an idiot" could have partly been just a cat being a cat. But the cat was me. Slightly disturbing.
2) That police only interrogate someone when they're quite sure that person is the perp. So what was I supposed to have done? Was it while I was human or while I was a potentially dangerous wild animal? Did I eat someone? Kinda more disturbing.
3) That the character might have thought the other serval from the other dream qualified as a "wife". And that's... I'm not really sure if it's disturbing or not.

It was so clear to me when I woke up, but now I only remember it vaguely. There was a box or crate, and inside was a pop star. He had been criminally abducted and was inside the box against his will. My mother was with me, and she noticed that the guy was inside the box. The prisoner continued to use a phone or computer or something to access the internet, but he only accessed his own social media accounts to tell his fans that he was being held prisoner. He did not try to contact law enforcement or to get any real help. My mother and I alerted the police, and soon, an ambulance arrived. Two medics approached, but wouldn't do anything until a police officer arrived to make sure it was safe. Soon, a policeman arrived and opened the box. I suddenly feared that it might be booby-trapped, but it was safely opened and the pop star emerged. He was quite grateful for being rescued, but was apparently addicted to social media. He walked over to us and personally thanked my mother for saving him.

I must have been hungry. I remember in the dream there was a hotel or a guest house of some sort, and someone was cooking a cut of meat and pouring hot sauce on it.

Dreamed about a Dungeons and Dragons game. Forgot most details. Remembers rolling a banana for a spell attack. Looked roughly like this:

Asked how to read it. Evidently rolled a 6. Woke up after correcting two misunderstandings (the first about the modifier and the second about to-hit versus damage). Never found out if it hit. Presumes not, given a +6 to-hit modifier. Did not roll for the other two targets either.
Changes its form depending on the observer.

Ah, yes, the fabled 12 sided banana. "Roll 3b12" as the saying goes.

Had a whole set of dreams in which I was trying to figure out how to get home in time (from a job? A school?) so my mom and I can go to a concert. We really did have concert tickets, and, despite being at home all day, I read the time wrong and we were late for the concert.
Don’t become a well-rounded person. Well rounded people are smooth and dull. Become a thoroughly spiky person. Grow spikes from every angle. Stick in their throats like a puffer fish.

I dreamed I was participating in a video game that was a LEGO version of a large-scale urban battle. There were two teams, those with hats, and those without. Even though it was a video game or a simulation, I was transposed into the virtual world, like virtual reality I guess but I wasn't sitting somewhere wearing a VR headset or anything, I was actually in the virtual world. As the dream went on, the LEGO theme disappeared and it just became humans with hats versus humans without hats. The hat team had an unfair advantage in that they could remove their hats temporarily to pretend to be members of the other team in order to deceive them. Eventually, the hat team won. I was on the winning team, even though I joined the game late and I didn't do much to contribute to the victory. After the battle, we went around the city and found any stragglers and took them prisoner. In a group of ground-level and underground buildings, we found hideouts for the insurgents (the non-hat team) and began to round up women, children, and the elderly to put them to work. I mostly walked around and tried to look busy as I observed what was going on. Officers assigned groups of prisoners to cleanup crews. Guns were laying around in many places, but bullets were scarce. Still, I was worried that any prisoner might pick up a gun and know of a hidden cache of ammunition, and start killing. I myself realized I had no gun (even though I was supposed to be a soldier of the hat team) and picked up a revolver, but I had no ammo. I realized that bullets could be purchased for about one dollar each, so I began to search through rubble to find coins, ignoring pennies. I noticed that an insurgent prisoner woman was doing the same, so I had to move quickly to get the coins before she did. I felt pity for the prisoners and I felt guilty for the kind of post-war occupation I was participating in, but I knew they weren't real people and it was just a simulation so I knew there was no reason to feel that way.
