Long lucid last night.
Holy monkeys I could have sworn I updated this… sorry everyone!
Task 6- FOOD!
It’s an oldie but a goodie. One of the most interesting things to do in a dream is to eat something. But hey, who says it has to be edible? I’m sure you guys can be more creative than just ordering a Big Mac!
Eat something- +30 pts
Prepare the food yourself- +20 pts
Every additional thing you eat- +5 pts
Eat something normally inedible- +10 pts
And now to get creative…
Create a new recipe or flavor (that is edible)- +30 pts
Recreate that recipe or flavor in real life- +50 pts
I became lucid last night while talking to a cousin via instant messaging, even going so far as to type in “you’re dreaming”, but I lost it about 10 seconds later. I was kicking myself when I woke up, as I had plans for that lucidity.
Double post for a second consecutive day with lucidity. This was a thirty-second one, although I took more action this time. The first twenty seconds led to a false awakening, which I immediately realized was a dream, but I woke up for real immediately afterwards. I need more time if I want to get things done. :o
About a minute or two of lucidity. I ‘woke’ up and checked the projected time on my ceiling, noticed i still had time to sleep. Just as I closed my eyes i noticed that my alarm clock’s light was black… Instead of red. So I RCed, got some funky numbers 6-8 fingers. Flew to find a mountain, and changed the night to day. I lost lucidity when some invisible force threw me from the sky to the grounds, I demolished a couple buildings from the fall. Then went into FLD, but it was pretty neat still.
Another short LD. I also had a series of dreams where I thought I was lucid at least twice, but I never actually gained control of the dreams. That was fairly frustrating.
I enjoyed a few snacks in a ND last night, half eggs and little sushi pieces.
In accordance with an incubated dream of Gwee’s design from IRC, I met her (from the LC) and two non-LC LD4all members in a medium-length LD last night, as well as eating something normally inedible (not by Gwee’s design).
[spoiler]It’s late at night, and I’m driving down Connecticut Ave in Chevy Chase, Maryland, heading south towards Washington, D.C. only because you can’t make a U-turn to go north for five intersections straight. I come up on the traffic circle I’ll use to turn around, and briefly contemplate continuing straight into D.C. just to see it. [LD]It suddenly dawns on me that I have no reason to be here: I came here for a day last month to visit friends at Awesome Games Done Quick (a big video game charity telethon), but that was it. This sparks lucidity, so I abandon the car and step out onto the grassy traffic circle.
I remember that in waking life, Gwee had created a group incubated dream for herself, me, and a few other LD4All members. She wanted to have a “dinosaur party” on the side of a mountain. I needed to meet her, and for the first time in, well, ever , I remembered a way to summon a DC. I reached behind me and took a step back, feeling something grab my hand. I turned around to find Gwee holding my hand, and the setting behind her was a bit more mountainous. The night even gave way to dawn so that I could see better. With Gwee found, the next step for the party was dinosaurs. I remembered that she wanted us to transform just by belting out a large roar and willing it, but I couldn’t bring myself to change. In my incubation/visualization, I had prepared for the possibility of willpower alone not cutting it, and decided that I could slip on a ring that possessed the power to force the transformation. I asked Gwee if she brought the rings, and she took two out of her pocket, handing me one with a red gemstone (just like my high school class ring, which I’d worn IRL to cement the incubation in my mind). I slipped it onto my right ring finger, and my body shuddered a bit, but I still didn’t change. I wasn’t giving up so easily, though; I knew I needed that ring’s power inside me, so I took a more desperate measure and bit the gemstone off and swallowed it. It was powdery when eaten, and I seem to remember a distinct cherry flavor (Ring Pop, anybody?).
This made the transformation start. My perspective began rising, and my body started to lean forward as I’d envisioned a T. Rex, which would have its body in front of its hips and its tail behind the hips as a counterbalance. As I continued rising and leaning, I remembered that Masonc1 was supposed to be joining us and possibly Nicklebrick (Gwee seemed unsure of this IWL). I looked down to see them below me.[/LD] Unfortunately, the dream faded away at this point. I never did get to see myself, nor did I see anybody else change per the terms of Gwee’s party. I also wanted live food as a dinosaur, not just a ring.
If anybody else wants to join Gwee’s dinosaur party, tell her in IRC and pick a dinosaur. The more, the merrier.[/spoiler]
The final task should be up on Wednesday. Sorry for the slightly irregular updates, school’s been keeping my attention for the last few weeks. Never take 4 writing-heavy classes at once
About a 2 min LD this afternoon. I forgot what triggered my lucidity, I think it was cause I performed a hand rc, I wasn’t really convinced until I did the time rc. Did a lot of stabilizing and then flew to my backyard. I thought, since my backyard was so grassy it’d help me visualize the Dreamscape I want to be at. So I stood on my grass barefooted and thought, okay, when I turn around I’ll be at the mountains. I turned around to nothing but my house. I try once more without success.
I was frustrated. I decided to try summoning Thorn using the same method he used to find me. I put my hands behind my back and expected somebody to grab it. Then I felt a hand grab onto my wrist. I turn to find ‘nobody’, but Thorn was there just transparent, his form was still somewhat visible. Afterwards I was able to see his head, just not his body (still transparent). I said to him, “let’s go find the mountain!” We both flew off into the sky, there I tried to change up the night to day. Only to fall into an ND
ZOMG IT’S HAPPENED! WE’RE GOING TO ACTUALLY FINISH AN LC
And, in keeping with my Time Lord traditions, let’s end it on something interesting. In dreams, the world is yours to command and control, and that includes time. So now I want you to bend time. Slow it, speed it up, stop it, put it in reverse. AND WE’RE GOING OUT WITH A BANG, BABY
Every way you manipulate time (slow it, speed it up, etc.): +50 POINTS PER VARIATION
Time to catch up for anyone behind. GET ALL THE POINTS!
I had a short LD where I ate a cookie, ate a plastic bottle with syrup in it, and prepared toaster waffles and ate them. None of it tasted like much.
Medium length ND/LD
Last night was crazy. It has been a couple months since I tried it, but I used the SSILD technique and had multiple bouts of lucidity. My dreams were also extremely vivid. There were at least three or four times that I thought I was dreaming; however, I can only recall having had two clear short LDs last night. Also, I tried eating a trash can, but had a FA right before I got my mouth around it. In my second LD, I tried to eat my watch, which tasted metallic, but had to stop when it was pulling my teeth out and causing me pain.
As a side note, while I’ve only used SSILD a couple times before, it seems to be quite effective for bringing on more LDs, more vivid dreams, and it also helps me to fall asleep. I suggest trying it out sometime.
Two LC related dreams, both NDs though, still no LDs
First one: The town where I live changed into a theme park. The main attraction was a giant rollercoaster, combined with a water slide. Instead of just sitting in some kind of wagon, you could also simply cling to the rails. Some DC friends and I went into a Haunted House, which had a LOT of rooms and you were supposed to find your way out.
Second one: I was at a mall, and some of the little shops/offices still had chains of lights on the windows (glued on or something). You weren’t really able to see them if the lights weren’t on, and I wouldn’t have noticed them if one DC didn’t tell me about them. The lights were of a bright blue/white and resembled ice.
Had another short LD. I tried eating a tissue, and it tasted sweet and was really doughy. It wasn’t very pleasant so I spit it out.
Short lucid last night, no time manipulation
I had a short LD last night, but didn’t complete any tasks.
About a 3-4 min LD this afternoon. Mostly flying.
[spoiler]I was standing in front of my friend’s giant mirror observing a random tattoo I had on my neck. I was worried I’d get in trouble cos of a video I saw the night before. Then it hit me… I don’t have a tattoo. I realized it was only a dream and it started to slip away, but I shouted, “Increase lucidity x1000!” Didn’t seem to help that much but my friend DC grabbed my attention by saying that 1000 does nothing, and trying to trick me that it wasn’t a dream.
I soared off and flew high above the neighborhood. I knew what I wanted to do, to find the mountains. I had the choice of using other methods to get there, but I just wanted to find it naturally ~ It was a pretty long flight, I was over a city I’ve never seen before. There was a giant lake in the middle of the city along with many trees that looked like palm trees. The scenery was really beautiful and I couldn’t help but just glide closer to the trees and skim the lake a bit . Out in the horizon I saw many mountains, I set my intention of heading to the one lonely mountain, it was oddly located really close to the city once I got to it.
When I set myself down next to it, I looked up to find a city building looking like it was badly put together with bits of metal chunks. I flew to other mountains only to have the same thing happen. I drifted along the city road. Out of nowhere, a voice comes to my head telling me that the mountain I’m looking for is at Bodo. This just reminds me of siiw . My lucidity level dropped a lot, a random truck was heading towards me and I was having difficulty drifting higher to avoid impact, it does hit me and I lose most of my lucidity. I continued the rest of the dream in really low lucid. I was being hunted by cartoon characters and the SWAT for knowing how to fly. Lol[/spoiler]
I had 2 lucids this morning. One short and the other med length. The second LD helped me remember the first.
[spoiler]First lucid (1min or so)- I still can’t remember the beginning of it, or how I got lucid. I just remember that I was flying in the sky to find the mountain, in the midst of it I wanted to transform in the air, into the pterodactyl form I was suppose to be in. It was really difficult to get the bottom half. With my arms stretched out, it easily morphed into a really large set of wings. The bottom half of me remained the same, I felt odd, in a weird bent position while flying with my new wings. It was a new experience/feel, having air collecting under my wing felt strange. But I got the hang of it quick. I never really transformed completely. That’s all I can recall.
Second Lucid ( 4-5 min)- It started off with me and a guy I’ve never really met before lying down on the floor of my parent’s room. We were just chatting around and teasing each other. The room was very well lit by the sun through the curtains, the atmosphere was light and cheery. After a woman comes into the room to find me. I try to hide under the bed but the guy gives me away. She applies makeup on my face, apparently I was to attend some sort of celebration (wedding perhaps?). After she leaves I part from the guy.
Just as I was about to put on a dress I decided to perform my hand RC. I get 6 fingers, I suspected that I counted incorrectly and do so again, 5 fingers, just to be sure, again I counted to 8 fingers! Now I was really confused, so I tried another method of pushing a finger through the wall. It doesn’t work… I get frustrated at this point and recount my finger to 6. I did a final hand through the window glass and soared off into the sky.
Of course I knew my goal was to find the mountain. This time my dream helped out. While I soared above my neighborhood, I noticed a huge rock pile at the entrance of my neighborhood, thick black smoke blew straight out of the top of it. It was really cool looking, evil almost. While I drifted closer to it I noticed two raptors walking side by side towards the playground of my neighborhood. They were just taller than the average human. I glanced at the peak of the mountain, there was a really huge t-rex that I assumed was Thorn. He was the only dinosaur standing up there, like he was king. I flew closer and was surprised to find under the mountain a rollercoaster, it twisted and curled with red and yellow metal tracks, kids were actually riding it. I flew around the coaster and was determined to transform once again in the air, into a pterodactyl and join Thorn at the mountain top. But again, I was having difficulties getting it right. I wasn’t focusing so much on flying, so at times I wavered dangerously in the air. Then I wake up![/spoiler]
