[snip] I don't remember my dreams much, but I know the better I remember them, the brighter they tend to be. It used to be that everything was washed out, like it was seen though a grey filter or something, usually; now I usually dream in full but not particularly bright color. But I occasionally have these dreams that seem to be intentionally showing off how colored they are: in one dream there were these roundish tents in a range of unbelievably brilliant colors on the brightest grass I'd ever seen. For no particular reason, just this field of bright, bright tents. I know I've dreamed I was speaking languages other than English, and when I'd been in Spain a few weeks specifically in Spanish, but I never could remember it when I woke up... and to my knowledge I've never dreamed in a fictional language, especially not my own. Certainly not that I've remembered anything other than "that didn't sound like English!"
