Lucidity Challenge 38: Awards Ceremony!

There was a snippet of dialog in my dream this morning (“The door at the end of the hall”). I think holding onto the metal beams, in the same dream, might count as “touching something”, as well.


ND about the show Friends. I was a DO the entire dream.

At first I thought it qualified for the Sight and Sound Tasks, but upon reading the tasks again, I didn’t see anything spectucular. What stood out for me for sight was just visualising the words and letters.

For sound, what stood out to me was the end where the characters were sarcastically greeting themselves happy birthday. Upon rereading the task though, it wasn’t a conversation, so don’t know if it counts. I didn’t hear the earlier conversation between Ross, Rachel and Joey in detail.

No Touch at all yet.

Here’s a ND I had.

Several things happened that could apply. There was music in it, definitely. Amateurish piano melody, that was very simple. As well as some other thing which involving choir-like singing.

Also, I’m able to recall how sitting on a chair felt like. Does that count as touching stuff? : p

A few nights ago I had a ND where i heard my friend singing. It sounded really good and the music was really calm and soothing.

Last night I had an LD in which i did not complete any tasks.

Posted a long LD from last night. Still have a few others to post that happened before that one…
Anyway, it contains vivid detail and something grand, dialogue and listening to silence, and all of the touch tasks in which I AM DETAILED. :happy:
Also there is a chain.
Also… it’s kiiiiiinda explicit perhaps? :razz:


Had an ND where I was going into a jungle temple. I walked through water which was cold on my feet, and felt the textures of the rope I was holding on to. I could hear the water when I was alone, and had a conversation with Beaker from the Muppets. I believe his exact words were “meep meep meep.” I also saw a giant gold idol I would call grand.

Frustrating… I remember I had two point-intensive dreams this morning but now have no memory… damn work!

Here’s another ND I had.

I believe “touch” was in there.

2 medium LD’s last night.
First dream I heard music and saw something grand.
Second dream I had dialogue and touched something with a slippery texture (does that count?) and was cold.

Summaries posted:

The two NDs posted here have some points in them. The first dream simply has some dialogue in it.

The second dream sees something grand (the initial environment), sees something in vivid detail (via an staff that performs x-rays), has dialogue, has music (part of a video game — I recognize and whistle the song), has a focus on silence (as I try to sneak up on something along with another person), touches something (a thin, lightweight tablet for a video game), touches something cool (water), touches something textured (petting a dog), and touches something unusual (the x-ray staff). The only task NOT done is the “see something inspiring” task, which has constantly eluded me; I have yet to be deeply affected IWL by something in a dream during the LC.

Last night I had a short LD here in which I did not complete any tasks. The second dream, a ND, has dialogue.

OlegEqualzName: Yes. You can still get points for doing the previous tasks, but no Early Points nor the Bonus Task points.

Points for the chair. Those count cause you felt the sensation of touching the chair. :wink:

BrandonBoss: :smile: (Also, the “31 nights” confused me for a bit. :razz:)

Thorn: Don’t worry about it. I’ll take your word on it. :wink:

No Part IV (unusual touch) points for the staff, though. I consider a staff not unusual at all, even if it does give you x-ray vision. Sorry. :sad:

Jessica: I’ll give you “vivid detail” for that dream. Also, if you could actually hear the characters from Friends “greeting themselves sarcastically” you’ll get dialogue points for that. I don’t know if you did, though, so let me know.

LDbc12: In your post here you mention an LD, what length was it?

Wyvern: o.O A little revenge on Thorn for him using you to get points? XD

Also, slippery texture does count. I use the word texture to refer to the feeling caused by a surface’s “texture” so something slippery would have a slippery surface, and thus a slippery texture… It might sound strange, but you get points for it, so… :tongue:

Task 4 - Smell
Up next in our endeavor into detail, our foray into focus, is Smell. Why smell instead of taste, you ask? Well the sense of smell greatly influences our sense of taste, therefore it is the natural predecessor to taste, but moving on.

This week you need to engage in outrageous acts of olfactory delight! … err… Smell like you’ve never smelt before. :tongue: Remember, your goal is not to report that you smelt something, but to report how something smelt.

[b]1. Smell some food (no points for tasting it yet!) + 30

  1. Smell something good / bad + 40
  2. Smell something new (as in, a new smell) + 50
  3. Smell something that doesn’t exist IWL + 60
    Remember, detail is key!

Bonus Task
Sadly no one completed last week’s bonus… :sad: Oh well… it was sort of out there. This week’s bonus comes to you from fellow LD4All member StarryGwee!

* Shrink yourself (by at least 50%)!

You heard it! Just make yourself smaller!

This task will run for one week until approximately 6 PM EST, Sunday, September 15, 2013. Good luck!

This week’s creativity points go to… Thorn and Wyvern! They both attempted the same task variation and had some success. Since Wyvern… “made it farther” I award him 30 points instead of 20. Sorry Thorn… :tongue:

Oh, look at that. I’d be first if I was just up to date writing out these blasted dreams. :tongue:

Here’s a medium LD from September 2nd.
There was plenty of dialogue and I listened to silence. Vivid dream… Also touched something (the wall), and something with texture (the diamonds). Technically I should be getting early points for the touch tasks… but I really don’t care either way.
Takes me a while to write these things, so I’m behind…

Thanks Scipio :content: yeah, I heard them say the words as they appeared on the screen.

Here is today’s DJ entry. As usual, it had dialogue. I also saw something inspiring; while the dream’s math wasn’t entirely correct while calculating the discriminant of a 3x3 matrix, it actually did the first step correctly even though I recently realized that I’d forgotten how to do it IWL! I remembered the entire process upon waking up.

Yup it happened. I broke a record using a WILD new method longest dream evar!!

Ironically… Saturday night I had a dream where I was opening drawers, and different smells were being described to me… Though the unfortunate part, is that even then, i could not smell a thing. I have not smelled anything in dreams for a long time.
It would have been nice if i had taken the time to write it in my journal. It would have been an interesting precog there.

A bit of dialogue here. I feel like my senses were much more involved than the journal entry suggests, but I can’t recall things clearly.

Got the weirdest tactile I ever want to feel in an ND. Here is the post:


Okay, its been awhile. I’ve been extremely busy, and I don’t think the stress is good for my lucid dreaming.

I had a ND the other night where I was touching and holding a key, rubbing my fingers on it. I felt its texture, which was basically like metal, with a slightly rigid place on part of the key.

In another ND from the other night, I was taking my parents inside the TARDIS, and my father said “It is bigger on the inside.” He said it like I had already told him that it was bigger on the inside, but in the dream he had never actually had any experience with the Doctor or the TARDIS until that moment.

I had a ND last night where I was in Japan, outside of a crashed TARDIS, and the Doctor was yelling to me something “the Mongolians are coming, we need to get out of here.”

I had a FA last night that resulted from an extremely brief moment of lucidity (<5 secs) where I was touching my bed sheets, which can only really be described as feeling like heavy bedsheets.

Finally, I had a medium LD last night. About time. I again tried my personal task and failed. I did touch something unusual by jumping into a mirror. The best I could describe it was like a gelatinous mass that was dark and quite suffocating.

After writing this post, I just realized that I had two Doctor Who related dreams in the last couple days. That’s a lot considering I haven’t watched it recently, nor do I usually dream about it. Cool :cool:


Had some LDs. Not going to count 4 of them because my recall slipped and they would resemble the others too much if I wrote them down. Naps suck for stability for me, so don’t judge my LDing prowess by these LDs. :razz:
