LC #27, Winner: Rhewin! Congratulations everyone!

One short LD, nothing of interest.

Finally! Lucid once again :pharaoh:
I did not do any of the tasks, I only remembered my own, flying to the Himalayas, but I only saw the mountains, I did not manage to make it there.

[spoiler]Tuesday November 30 LD #19


My dream started out as a regular morning, getting ready to bring the kids to school. I grabbed a brush to brush my hair when it dawned on me that I had long hair again (in real live I am sporting a buzz cut now, I recently cut it). The realization that I was really dreaming came as a shock and a welcome surprise. It had been so real!
I ran past the kids hollering, “Bye kids I’m off,” and ran out of the back door, jumped and flew of the bluff that I live on. The sky was orange and golden, and the palm trees made perfect silhouettes against the vivid display of colors. I was just so happy that I was lucid again that I kept on saying it while flying. I flew for a while looking at the scenery around me with snowcapped mountains in the back ground when I remembered my personal task (fly to the Himalayas). I kept flying but landed on a street all of a sudden. I looked around and I knew I had been there before in a previous dream. It looked like the street where I left Anook, but at a different part of it. There were trees along the whole street, like in an old town. The was no one there and I decided to walk under the trees out into the open so I could fly again. As soon as I cleared the tree I jumped up to fly, only to realize that I had miscalculated the clearance and I found my foot getting caught in the tree. No matter how hard I tried I couldn’t get loose. I called out, “Someone please help!” when a pair of unseen hands, or some force, pulled me out almost all the way. I had to call for help again once more before I became totally free. I continued flying, aiming for the mountains, when I noticed a cop on the side of the road out of his car. I get into a mischievous mood and decide to fly lower, right over his head, but for some reason he doesn’t see me; it made me wonder. Soon after the cop the scenery changed and I found myself in a narrow hallway inside a house. I wanted to go to the mountains so I walked to the front door. There was a maid behind me. I told her I was just leaving, it did not occur to me to stop and talk to her and ask her which town in Washington I should move to (my daughter and I are planning on moving there this summer).
As I got outside in the street I saw snow on the edges of the road. The maid said something about it being really cold. I noticed that I was barefooted (I pretty much always am here in Hawaii). The cold did not bother me though. I saw a friend of mine and I waved to her as I jumped back in the air to fly away; I made some flapping moves and my dolphin swimming move to get higher in the air and flew off again. I never made it to the Himalayas, I found myself inside a preschool all of a sudden where a male preschool teacher had made a bunch of cookies he had put on top of a high shelf I had flown to. As I was grabbing a cookie I felt myself losing lucidity
and woke up before I could regain it.
Later on when driving my daughter to school I found myself wondering over the significance of getting myself stuck in a tree again; it had not been the first time.
I was wondering if the tree (rooted to the Earth) represented my attachment to all worldly things, and that they were preventing me from being free (metaphorically speaking). :pharaoh:[/spoiler]
Still, as everyone who has been in a long dry spell knows, it is just so wonderful to be lucid again.

ha since I’m having super crazy no night because of work and I’ve been up until 5.30 working on an advert, I think I’ll read the task and definitely will have a LD tomorrow because I’m like extra exhausted :smile:)

yeeaahh I did it, well, I have to think about how to go through the ozone layer while lucid, and work on my tricks to stay focused and keep a long dream :smile: but I managed to remember the task and have a look at a beautiful starry sky, well, kinda the color of LD4all website ^^ put it in my DJ

Good job everyone, I’ve updated the tables with all your LD points :content: I’ve assumed it was a medium LD if not specified.
Be sure to enjoy those last days of the Challenge as well! ^^

And to conclude the LC, a simple task

[center]Task #7: Visit your home![/center]
No place like home, they say, and guess we’ll have to check whether it is the same for dreams :tongue:
This task is about coming back to visit your place, so the task will count only if you come from outside. If you’re already inside, then just get out and come back in :wink:

There’s 40 points for entering your home the first time. You will get +10 points for every familiar room you visit, and +20 for every unfamiliar one. It also applies to people you meet there, so +10 pts for every one you know already, and +20 for each one you didn’t meet before.

Be sure to look out for unexpected things, you may get a lot of surprises by looking closely to details around :content:
These are the last 5 days of the Challenge, so be sure to have a lot of dreams, and to complete your tasks :tongue: Good luck to everyone!
/me sends plenty of lucid vibes to everyone* ^^

Last night I had my first successful WILD attempt. I had set a timer at 5:00am that would beep every few minutes. After waking and falling back to sleep a couple of times in row I finally was conscious enough to try and do a WILD. [spoiler]Within a minute my body suddenly felt all weird and just a few seconds later my body suddenly made a 90 degree turn and I could slide out of my bed and did a RC to be sure it had really worked. It was very dark and couldn’t see very well, but did manage do move around by touch and leave the room through the window.after that I ended up in a ND on a train with some brunette girl I didn’t know. After a long nice talk during the ride and getting something to eat together afterwards I ended up in my old house. I saw a cop floating in front of the bedroom window and immediately realized I was still dreaming. I also remembered the WILD attempt and the girl I was just talking to in the ND, so I decided to try and find her inside the house. When I as left the room, she was actually there. We went upstairs and I explained to her that she was in a dream by showing how she could put a finger through her hand. I also showed her how to float, which frightened her a little. She wasn’t very talkative in the LD nor seemed very interested in me anymore and after a while she went downstairs. I stayed for a while and spent some time swimming around the room (only partially completing my personal goal by doing it alone), but got bored of it quickly, because it was going slow. I went downstairs, heard my parents talking to the girl about me. Then I felt I was waking up and didn’t feel like trying to extend the dream. [/spoiler]

(BTW, I had this dream before reading the ‘visit your home’ task. Nor did I ‘enter’ the house, because I was already inside when I became lucid again)

I use to have my FA’s at home :tongue: so then its just step out through the wall, then reenter the house :grin:

Had another LD starting from my house. There wasnt much to do, so i jumped through the back window and flew away into darkness. I got my sight back by rubbing and looking at my hands and ended up in big photo shoot with a couple of dozen hot topless models. For some reason I didnt think of going back to my house for the task after that :wink: I spent quite a couple minutes enjoying the view by repeatedly rubbing my hands to stay lucid. After a while I ended up in a new dream and lost lucidness and woke up within a minute. It was 12 am and got out of bed with a big smile on my face, lol

Had an ND where I went back home and had a converation about nothing with my dad.

Long LD last night (DILD), no tasks done but I did get to wonder around an aircraft carrier with a field of grass in the middle :grin:

Two LD’s, one a medium WILD and the other was a long LD chained from the WILD. I did go back to my home where I explored the living room, my paren’t bedroom, and discovered a secret entrance to the TARDIS. I had small conversations with my sister, my dad and The Doctor.

Edit: dreams are posted here

Hello, is this thing still on?

I had an LD that lasted about 10 seconds during a VILD attempt last night.

You may return to utter silence.
