No recall for last night; no points.
@obliverum: missed opportunity for a Harry Potter/Source Code crossover there
thanks! im coming back for the rest of my hover points in an ld, just you wait
one boring nd last night. i havent had an ld in a while because my sleep has been a mess, heres a good excuse to fix that!
Susan: i havent seen source code but maybe ill watch it for inspiration. maybe ill do a double feature with harry potter
Had 2 NDs here this morning. No tasks.
Non-lucid dream in which I am at a party.
Am I right in thinking we don’t get dream journal points for this challenge? If so, I’ll only link in this thread the entries where I get tasks done.
Susan_Y: That would be correct! But I’ll still read all entries posted here so, if you’d like, feel free to continue to do so.
Everyone: The week’s almost halfway up, y’all! Let’s see some task completions!
Catch-up posts - Several NDs, one FA with some OBE feel to it LINK
No points to claim
Whew, my dream recall is rusty.
One short lucid dream with no tasks or other things worth mentioning.
In a FLD, I teleported myself from being underwater to a white void. I was hovering in the void, but as there was no ground I’m not sure it really counts. Don’t really remember a lot of other details
i had a short lucid dream this morning with a failed attempt at completing the current wings quest. it was interesting!
short ld - 2 pts
GhenghisKhan: I noticed in your DJ, right at the end, you had “the doubt it’s not real”. This would qualify you for “Wondering if you were Dreaming” points… but I am correct that you don’t want those? Only for DILD LDs?
Rhewin: Any recall is good recall! Also, it’s like a muscle… you gotta work it out. Finally, teleporting from underwater to a white void is still teleporting! So points there. And while I want to give you hover points… it’s hard to say if you were hovering since that generally requires that other point of reference. (i.e. the ground ) It sounds more like you were floating in space, which definitely would not count… so maybe next time!
Obliverum: That Poem almost reads like a DnD action. “[My character] accept(s) and distract(s) (the) flawless mimic.” It looks to me like you did the quest! You may have not read the poem in its entirety, but you did read one. Good luck on your next attempt!
Everyone: Scores have been updated.
Cornelia: i couldve claimed quest points but what would be the fun in that? i want the rest of that poem!
just a short nd last night with no tasks, though there were harry potter books in it. they are really taking over
im not sure i got all the details quite right for it to count, but i think i completed part 1 of a maiden in peril on the hogwarts express in a lucid dream! only with a plot twist i didnt see coming… ill be curious to see what you make of it
medium ld - 3 pts
extended task - 8 pts (?)
Obliverum: I’ve awarded you points for the LD. As for the extended task… did you “Speak to her and ask her what’s on her mind.”? I know you spoke to First Luna (who actually sounds like she might look like IWL me) and then you briefly interacted with Second Luna. I’ll award you points if:
- You believe one (or both?) of them was me.
- You spoke “to her and ask[ed] her what’s on her mind.”
Everyone: Scores have been updated.
i definitely thought first luna was you when i spoke to her, and probably asked her what was up since that was my intention… but i admit to losing all recollection of our dialogue once second luna surprised us by showing up! then i was confused and didnt know who was who. im bad at remembering dialogue at the best of times. maybe real luna had something to say about Corneluna trying to replace her
i dont mind foregoing the points if it doesnt count, im more concerned about continuing the story with the follow up tasks
I love this! Your incubation of Corneluna definitely sounds like her.
Here’s hoping you get to pursue the storyline!
Obliverum: I didn’t really need details from the conversation… just needed to know that you had a conversation somewhat along those lines with someone you thought was me… so I’ll give you points! Congratulations on being the first participant to do a part of the Extended Task! You’ll get Part 2 in, like, 45 minutes when the next task goes up.
Eilatan: The resemblance is uncanny, no?
Everyone: Scores have been updated.
Task 2: Breaking Physics
And now, on to task twooooo! There will be far more avenues of completion for this task (and future ones) and for creativity points! So… go all out, and surprise me!
The task: mess with physics! Dreams tend to mirror waking life… at least a little… but they aren’t constrained by the rules of physical reality… so why not usurp your expectations and do something impossible? Here’s some ideas to get you started (and also get you points this week ):
Mess with Gravity (4 Points)
Specifically, I’m talking about changing gravity from something “standard”. So… for example, if you’re in a house… walk on the walls or ceiling! Maybe mess with point gravity? Could be fun!
Impossible Geometry (6 Points)
I’m thinking something along the lines of MC Escher’s work or the Penrose Stairs. Basically, your task is to create / explore some impossible geometry. It can be any example of impossible geometry you’d like, so if you have something in mind feel free to pursue that!
Matrix Jumping / Falling (2 Points)
Specifcally, “The Jump Program.” Do some super jumps… and fall! One of my favorite things to do in LDs is to fall from extremely high heights and bounce harmlessly. (This one isn’t really physics based… so… it’s only worth 2 points. )
The Free-Standing Door (6 Points)
Find a free-standing door or something shaped like it. Look through one side and see one location… and look through the other and see a different location. Be sure to write down the different locations you see!
A Maiden in Peril: Part 2
There’s been a completion for Part 1! You can find the second task prompts below for all completions. Part 2 is worth 12 points!
[spoiler]* While you were chatting with Corneluna you learned quite little about quite a many things… but what was currently bugging her… is why do you take a train to school? Surely, there should be a faster way? cough fireplaces cough Well… she must have been on to something as after talking for a little bit an imposter appeared and challenged you two! Or was the first Corneluna the fake? At this point you’re too confused to ask so you step back and observe. Meet up with the “real” Corneluna and tail the imposter to figure out why she or whoever she’s working for doesn’t want faster travel options for getting to school.
Claimed by Obliverum. Currently uncompleted.
And for everyone who hasn’t completed Part 1 yet, all Part 2 reveals will happen immediately after any Part 1 completions from this point on. Good luck!

yay i have a secret spy mission!
i had another lucid dream last night, before the new tasks were posted. i did do some teleportation but with the aid of a side-along apparition partner, so im not claiming that.
but i did read a poem and complete the current wings quest! heres the dj entry.
short ld: 2 pts
wings quest: 10 pts
i am having fun
i have to get up extra early the next few days so i dont know if my lucid chances are very high, but hopefully well see some other folks logging some tasks
Had 1 LD here which I feel was a short one. No tasks
Non-lucid dream in which I float in the air. I’ll claim the points for the floating task.
