LC #34

well last night was the closest ive ever gotten to completing the 3rd task…
I was an Assasin on a quest to find something when i fell from a bridge or a boat. Then i saw a huge whale come out of the water and land on me… :bored:

I also dreampt that i was at school, where i met an old friend of mine from a swim team that i used to be in. Then i started to swim-fly. I wondered to myself why i had never done this before when I saw a book that was written by the LD4ALL community… i asked myself, “what if i’m really just dreaming?” I realized i was dreaming and i woke up…
So i was never lucid but hey, i guess i sorta made up my own dream check! :tongue:

med LD

About 4 min LD this morning. I don’t really remember how I got lucid though… o_O, I just remember flipping a penny that read 1cent which turned too 2cents a lot, I kept checking, cause I didn’t believe I was dreaming. Eventually I was sure and flew out of my house to the street. I remembered about the LC- flying to space. So I took off flapping my arms up to the sky, and a few times remembered to stabilize the dream by rubbing my hands together. It felt kind of long…but I finally saw black, I was in space. So once in space I remembered to visit some planet and meet some aliens. I looked around and spotted a weird looking planet, which was in the shape of a skull. I flew towards it, an orangey-black looking planet. I looked around but couldn’t find any living lifeforms. That’s all I could remember :razz:.

One long LD

Short LD a few days ago and a five-minute LD last night where I remembered the task and dove in two pools. There were some people there, and when I first dove in the first one, I swam as deep as I could for a few seconds before I ended up getting lifted out of the pool. I felt too buoyant to stay in. I tried again at the second one, and made myself breathe underwater this time, as I’d held my breath before. Then I went looking for a lake or ocean or something, though it was nighttime. I do recall seeing it as I flew, but I don’t remember if I actually made it to/in it.

Edit: Haven’t been keeping my DJ the last several days. Have not been sleeping as I should lately, and I just woke up from 19 1/2 hours. I should start keeping it again tomorrow after work. I’m just lucky I did something task-related while lucid before it ended. :meh:

ZRVera: |40 points for two short LDs + 30 points for a medium LD = 70 LD points|, and |30 points for going underwater + 30 task while lucid + 20 early points = 80 task points|.

GnarGnar: I added |20 points| for making up your own song.

DreamSailor: If I read that right, you were lucid, had a FA, and regained lucidity, so that counts as one long LD with lucidity lost and regained. |40 points for a long LD + 5 regaining lucidity = 45 LD points|. Nice job!

demented: |30 points for a medium LD + 10 points for a lucid moment = 40 LD points|. You also beat your earlier score on task 1; your new score is |10 points for leaving Earth + 30 points for flying in space + 30 task while lucid = 70 points|. (Also, I seem to have made an error and left some of your points from last week out of my spreadsheet, so I’ll rectify that.)

Siiw: |20 points for a short LD|, and |30 points for playing music + 20 points for playing with DCs + 20 points for playing an original piece = 70 points for task 2|. Did you perform for an audience in that dream?

Thorn: |40 points for a long LD + 20 points for a short LD = 60 points|.

Zzz: |30 points for your medium LD|. When you flew, did you fly among the clouds (your personal task)?

skyglide: |10 points for the lucid moment|. Did you actually go underwater in your ship dream?

Limitles: |30 points for your medium LD|.

StarryGwee: |20 points for your short LD|. You beat your earlier score on task 1; your new score is |10 points for leaving Earth + 30 points for flying in space + 30 points for visiting a planet + 30 task while lucid = 100 points|.

Rhewin: |40 points for your long LD|.

The challenge is now half over! You’ve all been doing a great job, and I want to congratulate you all - especially the newer LDers - for what you’ve accomplished in the first half of this LC.

I also want to remind you all of your personal tasks and April’s monthly quest. Only one person has completed their personal task so far, and it’s worth a lot of points, so it’s worthwhile to make that a priority.

Now on to…

Task 4: Epic Battle Scene!

Do you ever like to imagine that you’re fighting in an epic battle like in your favorite book, movie, or video game? Your task this week is to choose your enemy and then fight them in a battle worthy of the dream history books!


+10 if you decide who you want to fight before you go to sleep
+30 Fight your enemy
+20 if the battle lasts longer than a minute
+20 Use a fighting technique that is impossible in real life
+20 Win the battle
+5 for each additional category of impossible techniques you use (e.g. magic spells, summoning a weapon, supernatural martial arts moves)

Questioned dreaming last night, but that was all.

(Apparently my bedroom being clean is a bit of a dreamsign…)

I like this task though… :ebil: Rhewin, I’m looking at you!

5-10 sec lucid moment. I had a nice normal dream, that ended upon realizing its a dream. I am starting to hate becoming lucid… It destroys my dreamworld.

Today I’ve had a short LD moment. Nothing special

PS: I didn’t fly among the clouds in my previous LD.

Oooh! This looks fun! I do a lot of fighting in my dreams sometimes. Too bad Sunday’s wouldn’t count… ah well. That was an awesome one. XD

Let’s see… since I haven’t been keeping my DJ still… I had an FLD probably… Tuesday night? I randomly remembered some guy sort of taunting me, and I grabbed his arm. He went “What are you gonna do?” and I flipped him over onto his back. I then proceeded to step on his throat… at which point he gave up. It probably only lasted a minute though.

Didn’t know of the task at that point.

Also, I seem to be ahead so far… I need to start paying attention again, now that I’ve calmed down from my bad weekend. This morning’s DR was crap though, I don’t remember anything now, even if I did earlier. :meh:

I could also use this chance to incorporate this task with my personal task as well… Use the power in my battle. :tongue:

Short LD and LONG LD – attempted to get to outerspace but couldn’t but explored a water tank thing in which there were weird robotic fish… was awesome

a short lucid moment. I realized I was dreaming as a DO, then I realized…wait, why am I controlling a random DC… So then from realizing that, the scene switched to me in bed, and I raised out of it and flew off. But can’t remember what I did after that. hah. :razz:

Puts up a “Go Starry! :bounce:”, “Go Vera! :twirl:”, “Go Rhewin! :thumbs:”, and “Go GnarGnar! :clap:” sign before running through a wall, laughing maniacally!! :ebil:

I punched Rhewin in the face in a ND during a nap yesterday evening. Then this morning I had a short LD (about 2 mins), just enough time to jump out the window of class, find him, and punch him in the face (again), before waking up.

Does slowly whittling him down one dream at a time count as “epic battle”? :tongue:

Nah, those are just cheap shots.

Boys, boys, stop taking cheap shots at each other! :meh:

Well, I had an FLD this morning. The battle was 10-15 minutes.

[spoiler]Memory of the dream starts back at home. I’m fighting a witch, and though there’s another witch (a bit older and more experienced) there, I was only fighting the one, but though she was not as strong as the other, she still was pretty powerful. I’m using my light powers, and instead of only using camouflage and invisibility and phasing powers like usual, I finally am using it offensively in this dream.

We fight for at least five minutes. We’re both doing well, and though I think it’s somewhat like a fistfight augmented with powers, I don’t recall exactly what happened. Finally, I’m fed up with getting nowhere and make a slicing motion with my right index and middle fingers towards her. Nothing happens for a few seconds, then her body is sliced into 7-10 thick sections all the way through, but there’s no blood.

The sections all keep moving on their own and start floating and creeping towards each other to try to reform. I grumble about how damn hard it is to kill witches, and complain that the only way to defeat them is for me to absorb them. Since she’ll keep fighting if she gets herself back together, I start turning her molecules into light and start absorbing them.

It looks like a yellow haze at first coming off her, and she tries to resist, but she’s still in pieces even though the pieces are coming back together. Somehow we get find ourselves in a dark space station, with no one there except the witches and I and Ben Tennyson (though the ten-year-old version). He’s doing something with his Omnitrix, and it’s red. He must have run out of power and was trying to get it to work again.

Dr Animo arrives in a spaceship, and the other witch and Doc Animo want to leave. I ask if I can come along, and since Ben was in the dream earlier but was somewhere else now, I say I won’t tell him that Dr Animo is still around and alive. I walk (and so does the witch I’m still battling) toward the corner of the room where the bridge to his ship is waiting for us. We can see the spaceship out in the darkness outside the station glass.

All this time, I’m still slowly turning the witch into light and absorbing her. Her pieces have been all together for a while now, but they’re still pieces. She either can’t or is not able to heal them back together. What I’m doing to her must be taking all her concentration to try to resist, and honestly, it’s taking much, much longer than it should be.

Dr Animo stays at that corner and then walks back to his ship, and the older witch follows him. I follow them as well, with the struggling witch following behind me. I think that they won’t be very happy that I’m about to essentially “eat” their comrade, but they let me come along anyway.

The bridge to the ship is at an angle, nearly 45 degrees, and has colorful knobs on the grid. It’s not enclosed, and the witches and Doc Animo don’t have suits but are fine, and I am as well, but I figure I should probably turn into light to be safe. I turn into light and fly up to the platform in front of the ship at high speed to get there ahead of the witches. I’m sick of how long it’s taking to turn the struggling witch into light, so I suddenly turn her completely into light and absorb her, all in a quick action. Her consciousness does not come with her once I absorb her, so she’s essentially dead and is now helping to fuel my powers.

Now the others are rather pissed off at me, but still let me on board. We end up stopping at a planet and staying at some place there, and it’s daytime. For some reason my parents are there at the planet too, and I’m supposed to share a room with them. I was going to say something about what just happened, as well as Ben, but realize I should check for mics. We had been talking, and I can hear our voices coming from a speaker in the room. I go over to it and make a slicing motion at it. Nothing happens for a few seconds, then its red and green lights go out and it’s dead. It wasn’t physically sliced this time, but I figure the energy was enough to short it out.

I look around and see some wires on the wall and think they’re not hidden very well. I have boots on and stomp on the first microphone head. I keep looking around for more and jump on a table to stomp on some that I pulled down out of hiding behind the window curtains.

I say, “That should give them something fun to listen to,” referring to the squeals that likely were sent back to whomever was listening when I stomped on them. My parents go looking for more of them, but I find most or all of them, and there were a lot. I get rid of the ones on the walls and wonder if there are some in the ceiling too. I poke around up in the ceiling tiles. I don’t find anything though.

I don’t recall much after this.[/spoiler]

Task 5: Manipulate the Elements!

(The idea for this was shamelessly stolen from the ND challenge.)

A master magician has all four elements - water, air, earth, and fire - at their command. Show that you’re the master of magic in your dreams by manipulating the four elements in ways that the world has never seen!


+25 Manipulate water (e.g. create waves, shoot water out of your hand)
+25 Manipulate air (e.g. create wind, make a vacuum)
+25 Manipulate earth (e.g. make a hill appear, tunnel through dirt)
+25 Manipulate fire (e.g. shoot a fireball, make fire into shapes)
+20 Bring all four elements together and see what results

Ysim: |5 points for questioning dreaming + 20 points for a short LD = 25 LD points|, and |10 points for choosing your enemy beforehand + 30 points for fighting + 30 task while lucid + 20 early points = 90 task points|.

demented: |10 points| for your lucid moment.

Zzz: |10 points| for your lucid moment.

Limitles: |20 points for a short LD + 40 points for a long LD = 60 LD points|. Your task 1 score is |10 points for trying to leave Earth + 30 task while lucid = 40 points|, and your task 3 score is |30 points for going underwater + 20 points for meeting fantastic sea creatures + 30 points for exploring + 30 task while lucid = 110 points|. Nice job attempting two tasks in one dream!

StarryGwee: |10 points| for your lucid moment.

ZRVera: |30 points for fighting + 20 for battle length + 20 for first impossible technique (light powers) + 10 for two more impossible techniques (slicing with fingers, absorbing enemy) + 20 for winning + 20 early points = 120 points|. Let me know if I missed some techniques you used.
