Lucidity Challenge 38: Awards Ceremony!

Two NDs here. The first one had dialogue, while the second one had dialogue and touching something (my hair).

I am late sign up

Some touch and smell in some vivid nds.

OK, so going back to Monday night:

Two ND’s. First one I was selling fresh cookies in front of the student union. For reasons unknown to mankind, I was selling the cookies for Michael Jackson, who was also there. He was telling me that he wanted to sell the cookies for charity. In the background, the song “Man in the Mirror”. Michael danced to that, and while I may not be his biggest fan, I gotta say that seeing the king of pop dance was pretty grand. Also felt the cookie which I could see in great detail. Very moist on the inside as well as crumbly. Could smell the cookie when I tore one in half. Possibly the best-smelling cookie I’ve ever had… now if only I could actually have one (to be clear, while I smelled food, it definitely was a good smell, not just a “food” smell).

Second dream I was at a buffet of some kind (I must have been really hungry that night). However, this one was a bit different. All of the tables were up on a runway of some kind. Down below was a giant, steaming pool of water. I could vividly see a bunch of food that had fallen in the water (bleh), and I could feel the heat rising from down below. A couple of DC’s mentioned how much they love going there because of a big selection. For lack of a better term, the place smelled like a buffet. I wouldn’t say it was good or bad, but it definitely smelled like food :tongue:.

Tuesday night:

Two short LD’s. I don’t remember a lot of details from the first one, not enough for me to be comfortable submitting anything.

As for the second one, however… Scipio, I’ma just PM you XD

Last night:

First ND I was going with Wyvern to see a musical of some kind. I was driving us there, and when we arrived there was a huge stadium with bright lights that I would say is grand. While in line I held Wyvern. Skin was soft, and could feel threads of shirt. When we got in a DC explained the main actor was sick, so for whatever reason I was supposed to take over. There was generic elevator music playing in the background as well.

Second ND I was at a mall with friends. We were all changing after some kind of sporting even. One guy was showing a girl a special box that glowed in different colors and a velociraptor from Jurassic Park was using the urinal next to me. I totally say those should count as separate things on the sight task XD. I heard lots of dialogue and felt the water in the shower room.

I had a dream here in which I felt callouses on my hands (touching something textured). I also felt arm strain, but I am unsure if that counts as a tactile sensation caused by hanging from a bar; I leave that to the TM. I’m currently more concerned with my waning LD rate and lack of recall — this LC will not slip away from me like the last one did, and I will find a way to fix this issue.

A few nights ago I heard music(the theme song for some anime). Also last night I had a short LD with no tasks. (no DJ entries)

Wyvern: Close, but no cigar. :wink:

Thorn: You have more math in your dreams than I have programming. XD (Oh, and I recall how to do the 3 x 3 Discriminant as well. :razz: )

mango_panda: … Hi? :razz:

Lumessence: In case you read this before I get a chance to PM you, there’s still a few questions I need you to answer about your past dreams you’ve submitted. They’re in my previous post(s), but I’ll collect the links and questions and PM you as well.

BradonBoss: :eek:

In your post here, the DJ entry mentions something near the beginning about “(Touch smell clothes. :confused:)”. Given that the preceding paragraph mentions nothing about the quality of the sensations I can, at most, give you points for “Simply Touch”. Care to add more details?

Also, I didn’t give you any points for smelling the “charcoal fire” as there is no part for simply smelling. I’ll need more details on that one if you think you should have earned points for it. :sad:

squoak: Welcome! :happy:

Rhewin: You and Wyvern feel free to dump work in my inbox whenever you want… better sooner than later. :tongue:

No recall for a while because, well, school. :meh:

But I had an… “interesting” dream tonight… It will be lower quality tho due to the fact I haven’t written it down yet.

Another day, another DJ entry from me. The first dream of the DJ entry doesn’t address any LC points. The second dream is an ND that becomes an FLD; it includes dialogue, music, and touching two cold objects (snow and a pickle jar — I’m aware that I only get credit once).

I… sigh… =.=

Here it is

I managed to get a short lucid dream where I managed to fly, but not do anything else, really. I’m planning on using a similar method I used for flight to get telekinesis working. But then again, I COULD argue that I used telekinesis on myself… :3

…yeah, bye.

I had a long and medium LD, no tasks. I also wondered if i am dreaming, but did not become lucid.

Time for my daily post! Here is today’s entry.

The first dream had dialogue as well as a “bad” smell: I realized I was smelling a fire and panicked. I also touched a door and held it in place as it tried to open.

The second dream had dialogue and nothing else.

The third dream was a medium-length LD. It had dialogue, observing something in vivid detail (my body yet again, although this time I didn’t do it for the sake of the LC points), and touching something (individual clothing items, which I’m aware only count once).

Dream dump from the week. Posted summaries because hell, I don’t feel like writing all that. Did not count a few of them due to being personal, recall issues, and/or not doing much in relation to LC.

2 mediums and a long one respectively.
#2218 medium (full version is PM’d): vivid, dialogue, smell something good, shrink, see something grand, touch something…

#2220 medium: smell food, dialogue.

#2222 long with chain: dialogue, see something inspiring, hear music, shrink.

I felt really hot water in one of my ND, so hot that it scolded me. I then felt cold water, but it wasn’t as cold as ice. After that, I ended up feeling some slimy soap, which might be considered unusual.

Also, I had a FLD the other night.

Had a ND with dialogue in it a few nights ago.

Another day, another DJ entry here.

The first dream has dialogue in it, a touch sensation from a helmet, and a sensation of a cool wind smacking me in the face (if that counts as “touching” something cool). It also has a grand sight, in which I see what may be the future of my home city.

The second dream has dialogue.

OlegEqualzName: I understand the school bit. I’m in college. :razz:

And you could, but didn’t so no personal goal points. :razz:

Task 5 - Taste
You all knew it was coming… so…

This week treat yourself to various items of delicacy! You’re goal will be to sample the world around you in a way that is often not done in dreams. Points will be awarded upon the following criteria:

[b]1. Taste some food and recall the taste + 40

  1. Taste something “not-food” and recall the taste + 50
  2. Taste something you made + 60
  3. Taste something impossible (like fire) + 70
    If you think you’ve earned points, please post them. Also, if you have questions as to whether or not something will qualify as “not-food” or “impossible” please ask. Generally, something “not-food” is not edible IRL while something “impossible” is something that cannot be tasted IWL like fire. Note that the two groups are mutually exclusive, at least when it comes to this challenge.

Bonus Task
Congrats go to Wyvern who completed the Shrinking bonus twice. This week’s bonus (which comes from something squoak said in chat :smile: ) is…

* CHHHEEEEEEEEESSSSSEEEEEE!! :biggrin: :biggrin:

Welp. I leave the interpretation of that up to each of the contestants. :happy:

This task will run for one week until approximately 6 PM EST, Sunday, September 22, 2013. Good luck!

Not many options when it comes to this weeks Creativity Points… I have to give them to Rhewin, though, as his recount of the cookies and Michael Jackson was the most entertaining of the Task 4 dreams submitted.

Last night I had a short LD here (the second dream). I smelled three things. (I’m not sure if the third thing i smelled counts, because, well, i didn’t really describe it well… but i did describe it a little…)

Also, i can still get early points for that, right? Since the dream was last night?

Last night I had a short LD here (the second dream). I smelled something good and then something bad.

So i can still get early points for that, right? Since the dream was last night?
