In which my dream symbolism is totally transparent

This morning as I got some extra sleep while Steve took the little 'un downstairs between feedings, I had a fun wild dream that Neil Gaiman or Tim Burton might have written. The notable part was that I visited the Underworld, which you accessed by a stairwell in a city street. The Underworld looked about like an underground street market--in fact, right at the foot of the stairs was a fruit-and-vegetable stand, like the otherworldly version of Pike Place Market. And featured in the front of the stand was...pomegranates. Heheh.

This doesn't even mean I'm obsessed with death or anything. It simply means I've been thinking about rewriting an old novel about Persephone and Hades. My dreams tend to be comically easy to interpret.

Also, Harry Potter was there to free, or maybe just visit, Draco Malfoy, who was being held captive. Foreshadowing of book 7? After all, Draco is now in the hands of the dark side, and (like Persephone) may or may not be able to escape it ultimately. I'm not a follower of H/D fanfic, but maybe one of you is, and wants to take this plot bunny--could be a tribute to the story of Orpheus and Eurydice, if not Persephone--and run with it.

In other news, bestiality is finally going to be illegal in my state. About time, y'all. *facepalm*
