This is gonna be a long one XD
From several weeks ago (when smell task was current):
ND where I had a conversation with a DC in a convenience store. He was complaining that the cashier sucked. I could hear music playing in the background, though it had no real melody or rhythm that I could discern. I remember his face clearly, lots of course hair. He smeared something on my arms that was black and definitely smelled bad. Don’t remember anything with quite the same smell… perhaps rotten tuna? It felt slimy and not at all pleasant.
Next ND was on a cruise ship on a river. Lots of bright lights, and I would consider it grand. Saw a swimming pool that was generally awesome with its decor (I think New Orleans based) that definitely inspired me to go swimming from the looks alone. Carried on various conversations with different DC’s, including a really fat Iraqi man with disturbingly vivid body hair.
Another ND with Wyvern that included general kissing and whatnot. Felt warm, moist, pleasurable, and soft. Conversations were had. Smelled his hair <3.
From last week (when taste was current)
Had an ND where I ate a hamburger. Not much to say other than that. It smelled nice, for sure, and I could stretch and say that seeing a picture of it inspired me to order it . Oh, I do remember it feeling slightly greasy.
ND while I was at work, though electronics department looked like a blockbuster. My manager and I found a room filled with old VHS tapes. I could see them in very vivid detail, was even able to read most of the labels with no issue. The rooms smelled dusty for sure. Also, as geeky as it sounds, all those sleeve covers looked grand to me in a nostalgic way.
Had a medium length LD, but I have since forgotten most details since I waited so long to post
From this week (emotion, obviously)
Had a huge string of LD’s earlier. It started with an ND were my wife brought a stray cat home. We argued (conversation) about keeping it. I felt extrememly frustrated at her. It’s fur felt kind of greasy and there were bumps on its skin. It’s meow also sounded incredibly disturbing. The dream then jumped to me being at S__rs and watching a demo video which also had music playing.
Here’s the LD portion which was a separate dream. I’ll put this in spoilers because it is so long.
[spoiler]I woke up but fell back asleep into the same dream when I got comfy again. I was reading the stray cat’s tag when I realized I couldn’t read the numbers and became lucid. The first part was long (maybe 15 minutes), though my dream was unstable. I had roughly 4 FA’s in which I had to RC to regain lucidity. I could see the dream in very vivid details in all situations. I jumped out of my bedroom window from the second floor and could feel the sensation of falling. While I was outside I heard some lawn equipment in the distance I talked to a few DC’s and asked them what they were doing; they said they were just trimming the hedges.
After a couple of FA’s where I kept getting reset to bed, I jumped out the window again and saw a bunch of guys loading TV’s into a van. I knew something was up and remembered I hadn’t contacted the Dream Police in a while, so I pulled out my badge and yelled for them to stop. The shot at me (the shots were ver’ loud) and I had to dodge them. I felt annoyed because of their attempts. Other Dream police showed up to help me out. Unfortunately, as had happened several times, my eyes tried to force themselves to close, and opening them lead to another FA. I looked at my phone in the FA and the time showed I had to be at work soon. I knew it was probably wrong, but it made me paranoid so I woke myself up.[/spoiler]
I woke up and checked the time and realized I had about another 45 minutes to be able to sleep, so I used WILD. This next chain included roughly 4 FA’s as well in which I needed to RC to regain lucidity.
[spoiler]I RC’d in the bed and could feel the air passing through my fingers as I inhaled, definitely an odd feeling. I rolled out of bed and walked into my apartment, but my “RL” eyes tried to open. I let them open, RC’ed again and knew I was still dreaming. I told myself I would find the TARDIS when I went through my bedroom door, but as I walked into the hallway, I found it had been replaced with some form of antique shop. There were books, appliances, and (creepy) dolls everywhere that I could see very vividly. Another FA/RC and I was in bed again.
This time when I opened the door I found the TARDIS. I would call it both grand and inspirational as I immediately wanted to explore. I walked in a found the control room. I listened and could hear the sounds of the engine humming exactly as it was supposed to. I felt extreme joy at this, and also felt (in the other sense) the control panel. It was the mix of metal and plastic one might expect. I felt my eyes trying to open again, saved the dream for a bit by concentrating on the details of my skin, but had another FA.
After I regained the dream again I was back in the TARDIS. I worked at the controls of the TARDIS (one of which felt oddly slimy) and then flipped the main lever. She made all the noises she was supposed to as she traveled into the votex. I called to The Doctor but got no response. I could see from a view screen that the TARDIS landed underground. I walked out feeling curious about where I might be.
I FA’d one last time, but woke myself up as I was still worried about time.[/spoiler]
In an ND, I was stuck in a hotel in which I was not allowed to leave. I had several conversations with DC’s asking to leave, but most said it was not up to them. There were a lot of trees and streams in the lobby which were vivid and I would say the hotel was grand as a whole. I could smell popcorn coming from a movie theater area. I got in a Matrix-style fight with CIA agents and felt pain when they hit me with a cart. Emotionally, I felt confusion, anger, and frustration.
Edit: the last two LD’s would both be long with the chains included
