Text of most memorable dream reports from participants in the Memorable Dreams Survey 2011 and other sources. Exact question used in the Memorable Dreams Survey 2011: We are interested in hearing the story of an especially memorable dream you had, from any time in your life. Please try to recall as many details as possible, including the setting, characters, colors, actions, and any feelings or thoughts you had in the dream. I recently dreamt that I was sitting on my bed playing guitar when I Disapparated to an unfamiliar school. I walked inside and visited the front office. I asked where I was and the tall office attendant told me I was at Carlisle School in Martinsville VA. I recognized the name of the school because I have friends who go to Carlisle. I proceeded to ask which class Emma Warner was in and the kind lady looked up her classes and told me to go to room 237. I walked around the extravagantly decorated school through ornate hallways until I reached 237. I burst through the door and yelled "Emma!" She saw me and her faced flushed red with embarrassment. She waved nervously obviously completely dumbfounded that I'd appeared at her school. Her teacher was not impressed and demanded I leave the classroom because her students were taking a test. I walked out disappointed. I tried to Disapparate again and return home but I couldn't. So I walked outside and tried again. Still nothing. So I went back to room 237 and waited outside the door. After 10 minutes of waiting I donned my Invisibility Cloak out of boredom and walked through the door. It creaked and naturally people were startled by the creaky door opening by itself but the class settled down instantly. I found Emma again and walked toward her intending on scaring her. I reached her seat and I crouched beside her and whispered "Meet me outside when you're finished." Apparently she understood it was me and nodded slightly. I went back outside to find a holly wand. I assumed it was for me and went outside still under the Invisibility Cloak. I practiced various spells: enlarging squirrels wrapping ropes around trees summoning snakes and levitating twigs. After about an hour Emma came out. I summoned two broomsticks and we flew away from her school into the sky and that was the end of the dream. I had this dream about two weeks ago so I was 15.
