Haunted Piano

I don't normally post dreams, but this one was too cinematic to not share:

I've brought an old piano home and it's in my bedroom. I wake up and hear it making noises, playing itself, not like a player piano, but little plinks like someone's brushed against a string, and other sounds, like wind blowing over the top of a bottle. I don't mind it at first until I think about it too hard. I tell myself maybe it's actually an organ, though I'm pretty sure it's a piano. I creep toward the light switch hoping I don't flip it on and find a scary dead thing seated at the keys. I flip the light switch and the room remains completely black. The piano is still whistling. And then I realize there's not even supposed to be a light switch on that wall where I've found one.

I run out into the apartment growing hysterical and none of the lights work. Then some roommates of mine come home and I try to babble out why I'm afraid of the piano and why I'm crying because the lights won't come on, and I sound really stupid. However the apartment was haunted prior to this (something exploded in a roommate's room--a deer I think) and it feels like we're cycling into another round of hauntings, with the piano as the vehicle from the spirit world.

Vic's birth mother had musical ability -- she played the piano, in fact. The dream has to do with her.

Well, now I see where your books come from! *rueful grin* I'm happy about the books, but...*shudder* re: the nightmare.

I see a plot bunny hiding in the piano.
