A Dream of RFCP: the Army Enters Subconscious Battlefields

Alma-Nungarrayi-Granites-Seven-Sisters - Center for Creative ...

For thousands of years, dreams have captured the curiosity of mankind. Psychoanalysts like Sigmund Freud have used dreams as windows into the vaults of our subconscious identities, desires, and fears. Others on the more metaphysical side of life consider dreams to be glimpses of another dimension, and maybe even afterlife.

When something we together created, like RFCP, becomes significant enough to so many individuals that it exists not exclusively in the physical world but also occupies the dreams of others, it enters into a new type of life–one that transcends beyond material perspective. It becomes an entity and a feeling; an extension of who you are, and a new color available for the universe to paint with. In other words, once soldiers start dreaming of RFCP, RFCP is no longer something to experience, but rather a way to experience other things. Like subconscious activity.

In addition to being a diligent historian chronicling events both in our army and in the physical past, Prior Bumble is an archivist of his own dreams.

“I view dreams as just another legitimate field of history,” says Commander Prior. “Dreams occur in time and space. History is everything which has occurred.”

That belief is identical to the one Prior argues in his thesis that Club Penguin armies could be viewed academically as a discipline of history. And he practices record keeping of his dreams too.

So far, he has filled three whole journals of his nightly dreams, taking note of most-frequently appearing topics and figures (in 2016, it was gambling, for instance), and correlating his dreams to dates and seasons in search for connections. Often he includes sketches of what he saw, and a title for the dream as well.

The page above from one of his journals displays a dream he’d had on June 9, 2019, four days after founding RFCP.

Would you expect the man who dreams each night, whose passion for RFCP is rivaled by none, to dream of this army?

If you said yes, you’d be right.

“But I haven’t recorded those dreams yet,” says Commander Prior. “I don’t know why. I feel like they’re extensions of this experience I’m still having, and I’m not ready to chronicle them as reflections. Perhaps the time for that soon comes.”

He remembers them each, though. Prior Bumble says he’s dreamed of meeting Sage from Mopia in a backyard gathering of many CPA leaders, and another time he dreamed of being in a foxhole in combat with Cena. But there are two RFCP dreams he’s agreed to write down in detail for the first time ever, just for the blog.

“One occurred last fall, and the other, last night. The one from yesterday I call Ring of War. The other, Prophecy of Chainpro.”

Read on for this RFCP blog exclusive.

Ring of War

I dreamed RFCP and ACP warred on an island in the shape of a ring. RFCP controlled one half of the ring, and ACP controlled the other half, as well as two sets of islands. In the center of the ring was a tunnel, and one province that we made an uneasy agreement to alternate possession of day by day.

The island itself was enclosed in greenhouse walls and roof. It was tropical; palms, black soil, and steamy thick air. Perfect weather for Prior Bumble attire. That night, it was ACP’s turn to control the center. Our robotic sentinels in the guard post rolled about and ensured the ACP just past the wall didn’t enter our half of the ring through the automatic doors.

There’d been talk that ACP (for some reason led again by Kailey310) was complaining about RFCP’s raids. They also demonstrated laziness, arrogance, and privilege, as usual. Notice how they occupied islands we did not, and they let valuable freeland lay about in their domain without claiming it. Pressure grew on me to attack.

After pacing the entire length of our half of the ring in thought, I made my choice. I ordered an Air Force strike of the Gillian Islands. Opino3 was to lead the assault.

Our EU took off and bombed the islands while I watched through a porthole. Pride in the RFCP and in my dear Commissar Opino3 coursed through me.

Once the deed was done, I walked the ruins of the island and met a grinning Opino next to his battered plane. That’s when a strange man approached; he said it was time for Opino to tell the truth.

“What do you mean?” I said.

And, because I am very gay for Opino, it was revealed to me that Opino was a ghost whose true home was Heaven. He’d decided to return to the world and take a mortal form only because he loved RFCP and myself so much. Opino shifted his weight, smile a little dimmer, and confirmed it was true. My main concern with this news was questioning whether someone from Heaven was still allowed to despise our enemies. Opino’s reaction was the equivalent of:

Prophecy of Chainpro

This dream took place on September 24, 2019, a few days after I enlisted Chainpro as RFCP General.

I dreamed I sat in a glass bottom boat where fish swam beneath my shoes. It was a restaurant of sorts; one could catch the fish themselves through a little ice-fishing-like hole and then cook it on a table in front of them. I attempted to catch a few reddish fish, but threw them back, as did the woman across from me.

I left the boat and entered a large, spacious wooden room. My soldiers were scattered around, and Chainpro arrived. I greeted him and shook his hand (firmly). Then, he told me he was going to leave RFCP. Confused, I asked him why, and asked him to reconsider. He would not. The wooden walls around me began to break down. He climbed onto a vessel-like platform, and some of my soldiers gravitated towards him (and not towards me). They intended to go with him.

Dumbfounded, I protested. Some reconsidered and departed from his vessel, but three of my soldiers went with him–I remember who, but won’t divulge which three. Tumbling comforted me in my sorrow. And the dream split into two, like a page ripping.

This dream particularly is powerful and ironic. Chainpro ended up betraying the army to revive ACP with McHappy only a couple weeks later, and, indeed, some RFCP soldiers eventually defected to ACP out of spite.

RFCP in Everyone’s Dreams

As readers can see, RFCP has evolved into a breathing, substantive element that exists beyond the physical and assumes roles in our subconscious battlefields, and therefore, our very selves. But it isn’t just the Commander who dreams of RFCP. Below is an anonymous compilation of dreams other active duty soldiers have had about our creation.

I had a dream where we were in a different VR version of club penguin called “Club Penguin: Conquer the Summit” which was a first person fighting game and we all would spend hours together in that game hanging out in our base and we even had a whole war against ACP in it. We won ofc

I had a dream yesterday that i had went into someone’s mansion of a sort that was for an enemy (almost like being a spy in a server except it was real life and it was like huge houses) and I was like spying in an enemy’s house. It had the whole ‘RFCP spy’ vibe to it. It had the feeling like it was RFCP and I was real life working for them, like I was spying again.

[I dreamed] the entire army was meeting together in real life and we were all dressed up in our uniforms and while I don’t remember what everyone looked like, I remember we had a good time. Everyone got crazy like during our parties on club penguin so it honestly felt like everyone was realistic lol.[4:25 PM]I think I’m addicted to RFCP lmao

I remember seeing a giant base. Like, an Area 51 base, decked out in RFCP attire. Just, an amazing place. I couldn’t believe my eyes. This giant facility, just, in front of me!

[I dreamed] we were in a Disney hotel and there was a screening of Gravity Falls. As we were watching, I kept hearing yelling of people making fun of the characters or telling them to work harder. So then after the movie I go out to the lobby and I see Raider, Cena, Opino, and Pixie all hanging out. I hear Raider saying how Soos [a character from the movie] wasn’t patrolling enough. As I was walking out with them, we go to the arcade and find people playing Club Penguin. We were like, “Wow, you guys sound like people we know.” It ended up being Drewls, Aqua, and [Prior Bumble]. Even in my dream, Prior was a nice and caring human because I remember he bought a little girl ice cream. We all ended up having a sleepover. When I fell asleep in my dream, I woke up in real life and then immediately went to patrol so Raider didn’t yell at me XD

One time, I dreamed we were all playing video games and everyone was really good except me.

I dreamed I woke up on what could really only be described as being the real life version of the iceberg. So I “woke up” as my penguin, and there were like all these lime green penguins (I just like…knew it was LGA) and, of course, our army was there. I’m talking THOUSANDS of penguin people…Pengpino [Opino3] was yelling at me to get in formation. So obviously I do, right? So I’m in formation and it’s like Prior was sitting on the CGI-looking Aqua Grabber giving this badass speech, and we’re all, like, yelling “YEAH!” and shit like that as Prior goes through getting hyped, and then Prior was like, “CHARGE!” So we all, like, mass ran at the green people as they ran at us, and it was like…insanity. We were doing formations and yelling random stuff (like dream gibberish that made sense somehow, you ever do that?). And, like, every time we would do a formation, the greenies would gradually get smaller and smaller in number until it was, like, just us there and we were all looking around like, “Well, what now?” And PengRaider [Raider] told me to do a patrol, so I was like “okay” and opened my map to hit up the Dojo, but when I room-changed, I woke up.

I had a dream that we did an RFCP meet up. Prior, Coolj, Cena, Mikan, Raider, Opino, and Red were there. We were at the grocery store (don’t ask me why) and I threw onions at Red and he was very upset. But we didn’t care that we were at a grocery store because we wanted to hang out and the location didn’t matter. But Prior wouldn’t let me get Funko Pops, and I was sad, and then Mikan and Raider started eating the grapes and Prior got angry at them because they didn’t buy them. And it was a nice dream because it felt like we were a family grocery shopping, but Opino didn’t fit in the baby seat of the shopping cart. Ccoolj and Cena were there, but they didn’t do anything. I just remember them being in the dream.

[I dreamed] I was walking up these little stairs, and Prior passed me by the side and turned. I stopped and turned too. I waved, Prior waved. Crossed his arms and, like, a flash in my brain of “RFCP” passed. As a thought. So, by default, I see a stranger in a dream and a flash of RFCP. Must be Prior. And then he turned and left and I turned and went to the edge with my boyfriend waiting there. And the rest of the dream changed completely.

And here are a few screenshots of other highly random instances of RFCP appearing in highly random people’s dreams, this one a total stranger who is friends in real life with one of our soldiers:

Even former or on-leave soldiers dreamed of us.

I’m sure she enjoyed that dream.

At the end of the day, we as dreamers conclude the significance of the dreams. But the fact that these dreams exist, period, alludes to RFCP achieving something greater, and holding some sort of meaning in our beings when we aren’t fully awake.

You decide what that significance is.

Dream on, RFCP. Dream on.
