Lucidity Challenge 36: Winner- HeadInTheClouds! Congrats!

I had about a 7min-sh LD this afternoon. I lost lucidity once.~ Prepare for lots of LOTR references. ~

I don’t really recall how I got lucid, but it was in my kitchen, probably did the time RC. I walked out of my house through the door onto the streets. I rubbed my hands together and decided to strips some clothing layers lulz to help increase awareness. So I flew along the street and decided to visit rivendell - Imladris from LOTR. I imagined it to be at the front of my neighborhood and flew off to find it. Just about there I lose lucidity.

I became legolas and I was riding the nazgul’s dragon with a crowd of people cheering me on, and behind me was Rivendell. I was slightly lucid still, but couldn’t really grasp the situation. The the scene changed to a woman in a office and a man who was pestering her about legolas’s different flying styles… he was out the window flying.

(Lucid)The scene switches back to me at the house. Annoyed, I flew out of my house towards Rivendell again. Gah, but stopped by a huge orb of dark energy. I was terrified, and for the first time ever I spoke in my dream, it felt so weird… I said “may the lights shine upon you”. The clouds opened up and pierced it :wink: . The dark energy vanished to a chained up female, it was Arwen from LOTR. I couldn’t leave her there… all of a sudden Aragorn appeared out of nowhere looking dissappointed, he cut the chains. I helped pull it off her. Soon after I woke up.

:meh: Darn sauron got in ma way.

Short LD, probably about 5 minutes.

I was walking through the school hall with lots of people about. DILD. I looked around and the first thing I did was yet again call out to my twin sister, but nothing happened. So I walked around looking for the party. I asked someone where the party was, and they said it was upstairs.

So I went upstairs and there were a lot of people, but i didn’t recognize any of them. I asked someone if they saw Rhewin but they didn’t know. So I called out to him and found him. He had brown hair, and was wearing a black shirt and dark blue pants.

I asked him if he had a riddle for me, and he said “What is blue and shiney?”
So I tackled him to the ground and tied a giant blue ribbon bow on his head.

Had 2 medium length LDs.

Oh no I didn’t see this topic was still on!

Then I join you guys ! :smile:

So I guess the only LD which will count are the one I ll do from now on so… Let’s go to bed haha!

Too bad I just did my longest LD two days ago…

I finally did it! I just had an epic zombie dream! The lucidity was only like a QuickTime event in a few sections, but this was at most 6-7 minutes of surviving in a town. I got shot at for a small scratch on my face! Unbelievable!

But the worst enemies were when the people were shooting at us! Pinned down and in a stable building, they finally stopped firing and actually asked if people were inside. We came out and they helped take over the building.
A little afterwords of gaining the trust of the chief, who was unselfish at all, I was sent out to do important missions. I came back to a whole bunch of people being pushed back away from our shelter! Why would they do that? They were just like us! So I talked some nonsense into the guard and he left. Then a horde of zombies had been coming by and everyone rushed into the building. It ended after everyone was safe inside with plenty of hotel food.

Well… I now realize this zombie topic was so 2 pages ago. I don’t think I killed any zombies… Unless 2 in a nonsensical flashback count.
Party… Party…

Now i’m not sure if this was the ld4all party but this happened after switching from the zombie dream.
Good thing I’m sick or I would have never gotten to see this with how much Mountain Dew I consume!
This one lasted a short amount of time

I arrived at the harbor of a huge and titanic sized ship that was about to set sail. The weird thing about this ship is that it also had huge boosters in the back and an engine that could rip a wormhole anywhere. (Not a black hole, there’s a difference)
I sat at the table and watched people dance to the awesome techno that played, I don’t dance… Maybe I tap a little, but the most dancing I do is by syncing my actions to music.
So I don’t really take notice of anything going on until a timer counts down from
30. The ship disconnects from the harbor.
25. In 5 seconds the ship is still pretty close but accelerating.
20. The huge TV announces that tonight…
15. Is the first time humans do a Slip space jump.
10. This caught my attention. Would it be like Halo 2?
5. The ship seems far enough away, I keep my eyes right on it.
0. A blue wobble of air surrounded the ship when it leaped forward, with a massive blue streak behind it, into nowhere!
This practically doubles my lucidity and I turn my head to the screen.
They’re showing a replay from the ships point of view!
It starts slow, then it lurches forward as the clouds, sea, and land turn into a blur.
Just as soon as it started, it ended. The ship appeared under the ocean and started to move up.
Then I think the dream switched, because Hardison picked up a remote rc car with a camera on it and told everyone else in the leverage building, “age of the geek, baby!”

Short, but awesome lucid yesterday morning. ( 3min) I’ll put it in spoiler, since I feel bad about long posts.

[spoiler](Moar LOTR references) I started off in a dream. I was walking along my neighbourhood’s main road at night. I was walking slowly and just staring at the ground in deep thought. Then I decided to sit down on the edge of a sidewalk, I looked up to see my own home.

For an odd reason I muttered, “I’m dreaming”. That’s when my lucidity spikes up. I did my normal RCs and realized indeed I am! I was really surprised at that moment and just took a little breather and glanced around at the real-ness of it all. Suddenly a car came at full speed, I thought it would hit me but it just barely skimmed me. My ADR was back up, I didn’t want to wake up. So I quickly thought of what to do…

I decided to create a portal to Rivendell, since my last attempts didn’t work so well. I remembered how siiw would trace out portals and such in her dreams. I quickly traced out a rectangular door in mid-air. I took a moment to glance at it, the lines weren’t as smooth as I’d like and they were a faint grey. I quickly walk into it, everything was a fuzzy grey colour. While walking through I felt as if I was being compressed from the sides, it really hurt and I was losing hope that I wouldn’t be able to make it to the other side, since the pain was so great. However, I distracted myself by helping myself create the image of Rivendell, I was just thinking of the scenery and different elves, that’s when I finally reached an ending point.

The doors opened from the other side by Elrond greeting me kindly, “Welcome to Rivendell, please join us to a feast.” I stepped onto the other side onto the pastey white stoned floor, the atmosphere was very peaceful. However, I was still feeling pain from my sides. Elrond directed me to my seat and told me to say a few phrases to have the pain subside. It didn’t really work. Elrond sat at the very far end of the rectangular long table, I didn’t really pay attention to the others at the table. The table was clustered with so many different plates of food, very expensive foods that would be fitted for kings (I saw oysters and lobsters…etc). We were upon where the council of elrond took place. The lush trees surrounded us. It seemed to be about late afternoon. When I finally took a seat I looked over to my right to see my close friend E, but then my lucidity went away. :meh:

The scene changed to a completely different dream.
It was still a great ld thou C: [/spoiler]

I had a short to medium LD, but its hard to determine. It felt like a medium LD, but I think that it lasted around 1.5 - 2 minutes. I did find and attend a party, but I wasn’t trying to focus on the current task, so I don’t know if that counts. Also, I finally made progress on my second personal dream goal of summoning two DCs. I was able to summon one person; interestingly enough, I somehow summoned two of the exact same person. Quite odd. :tongue:

Had a short WILD this morning, and visited an abandoned theme park of which I could see only the Ferris wheel which was overgrown completely by ivy. A weird mixture of the theme park task and my personal goal to visit a ghost town I guess, but my personal goal wasn’t really accomplished of course. Don’t remember anything else from the dream besides the Ferris wheel. :sad:

2 short lucid moments. I was in a hotel room and there was a party going on, I was getting something and some dc asked me for a bottle of sprite, I turned a Pepsi bottle over and it said sprite on it, then i got low lucid. I tried to leave the room but woke up.
I dreamt i was at the party again, this time i managed to get to the hotel hall, but i felt like i was gonna wake up, so i was rubbing my hands on the carpet. But woke up. :razz: had some scary HH after that, and very dream-full sleep

I had a medium LD last night where I found the LC party. It was a bunch of people sitting at a restaurant booth. I recognized Nicklebrick, StarryGwee, and Rhewin, and I tried to ask Rhewin what the riddle was but only got gibberish as an answer.

Totally forgot to put this on here, but I had two medium LD’s several nights ago.

Had a short LD.

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

Bon Appetit!

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. :razz:

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. :wallhit:

I enjoyed a few snacks in a ND last night, half eggs and little sushi pieces. :content:
