The Mirror of Esrevinu Eht
I have to go to the toilet. I really have to go but nothing happens. I realize I must be dreaming, because I already fell asleep with the feeling I had to go so I turned around again and thought to myself if I’m in a bathroom or a toilet I must be dreaming.

Right in front of me is a huge mirror. I walk towards it and look at myself and pinch my nose, and yes, I can easily breathe. [LD]I remember the task and decide to use the mirror for it.

I say to the mirror, “Show me the beginning and the end of the universe” My plan is then to jump though the mirror to be there. I press my head against it to better see inside.

A voice says:”The Universe has no beginning and no end, the Universe is an everlasting cycle”.

Well, that was that then.

I decide to do some time travel just in case to complete the task. So I jump through the mirror and call out something like “let me travel in time, let me be in the universe”

I now woosh through a space with light dots in it, it goes very fast and feels a bit scary, I realize I have no idea where I want to go (more accurately: when), I know I’m travelling to the past.

At some point I fly over a landscape and see houses disappear while I fly over it, and the landscape change through time. In the back of my mind I think oh, I can go to ancient Egypt or something! But then I have already landed and I know I’m still in Holland. Or that feeling I have anyhow.

The sun shines, it is light, and I’m in a place with newly built houses. The people are dressed very neatly. There are teenagers outside sitting at tables. I ask them what year this is. They look at me amusingly, later laugh at me.

“Come on, what year is it?” I ask.

One of the guys replies and a woman reprimands him for his language.

“you have to pronounce it like this”. (I forgot the word).

I say, “well fine, if you don’t want to tell me I’ll guess, I think this is the late 50s since you are all dressed so neatly.”

They laugh at me. How can I think that. As I’m about to take off again to fly away, I say:”Fine, this is probably the year 2007 then, but your parents will laugh at you later for how you dress” They laugh again and I correct myself ”I mean your children”, then I take off and fly away, and wake up.[/LD]

A huge mirror in front of me and I think of the universe task. :roll: Although I do feel I have traveled in time, it seems I didn’t really end up anywhere :tongue: Also there is no end and beginning in the universe, so I couldn’t go and see it, so there is a flaw in the task :tongue:

You could have asked to see what it’s like if there was a beginning and an end. Good job though, seriously… very pro LD’er you are pasQuale!

task 7:
Meet the storyteller of your dreams:
some background info; The storyteller is a person invented by me, I got the inspiration from Michael Ende’s “the neverending story”
So that you know who to meet:
The storyteller of your dreams, is the person who creates and stores your dreams.
The task is to meet him/her and ask her or him a few questions:
Ask the name of the storyteller.
Ask how old the storyteller of dreams is.
Then the big question ask why the storyteller creates your dreams.
Ask the storyteller can show you the storage where he stores your dreams when you have dreamt them.

Spoiler read only this if you want the image of your own storyteller destroyed but this is how I image my storyteller to be, yours can be very different of course

SPOILER - Click to view

An old man, with grey long hair and beard, he lives alone, in a mountain, where he creates my dreams by writing them and to write them he uses a white quill, and in his mountain he has many books of my old dreams

points:
Meet the storyteller: 10 points
Then 10 additional points for each of these things you do:
Find out his/her name.
Find out his/her age.
Find out where(and how) he/she store your dreams.
Find out why he/she does what he/she does.

Get the storyteller to ask you about something and you answering his/her question and you get 20 additional points.

so 110 points if you include lucid points is maximum for this task, go find your storytellers now :smile:.

Task 7 is the last task, the next deathline is on saturday and then the final results will be posted and the next task maker.

The Storyteller of my Dreams
[skipping ND part before it]

FLD: I’m flying, I realize I’m flying, maybe I should try flying with my wings, see if I can succeed. I try feeling my wings on my back and fly with them. I float in the air, it feels like I don’t have to make as much effort as last time.

[LD]Then it hits me. I’m flying. I’m dreaming. I’m having a LD! :yay: Yay! That means I can do the storyteller task! I get so exited I almost wake up. I stabilize the dream by pressing my thumbnails into my fingers. It works.

I now stand on a sandy path, to the left is a low building, and a black male is sitting on the floor in front of it, very relaxed. I’m prepared due to what happened with the universe task, so I say outloud:

“Ok, If there would be a storyteller of my dreams, what would he look like, I would like to meet him”.

A voice says: “look behind you”.

So I turn around, and in the distance somebody approaches mounted on a donkey, or a horse. I’m so exited to see this person. I walk closer and I see it is a pony, and mounted on it is the fox character from the movie Labyrinth.

(He looked more real in my dream than this picture above)

I ask… so, who is the storyteller, the pony or?

The fox says: “ME!”

He even talks exactly like the fox does in the movie :happy:

I’m accompanied by two female DC’s as well, I don’t know who they are, in the dream they felt familiar, one was a white, blond lady, and to my right a black blackhaired lady.

I ask him: what is your name?
”Ferdi!”
And how old are you?
21!

I think about this. Then I ask:”If you are 21, then who did my dreamstories when I was a child?”

”Why, your grandmother ofcourse!” He laughs.

I try to remember what else I was supposed to ask him. I look at my two female companions. What else was I suppose to ask? They don’t know either. I try to remember, but instead I wake up. [/LD]

/me signs up, I hope this can get me some LDs, the first LC did gave me an LD but then I sort of gave up due to the late deadline.(plus I hadn’t read the rules carefully enough that you could have done old tasks :smile: )
But now I give it a new chance

So sign me up :woo:

maroonjaguar signs up :happy: i’ve never had a lucid dream before, but maybe this challenge will help me to have a few :cheer:

Hey, can I join the team? I’m not very good at lding yet but maybe I can just get myself to normal dream the tasks?

well you can do it in a ND too, but the idea is to get lucid, and to be a motivation to have a lucid dream.

I shall be joining. :peek: My recall has been sucky lately (mostly due to having to get up at various times to do various things in a very various way), but still, it’ll be fun. :grin:

I’ll join. :content:

Sign me up - btw last night I had a dream where I travelled in time lol - oh well I was a bit late.

Sign me up please ! This is so exciting :yay:

Please sign me up too :content:

I will position myself in #9 please :peek:/me will have a lucid dream this week…

Can I pinch the last place, please. I’ve just started having LDs again for the first time in almost 2 months, and this will be good motivation to keep having them.

Signups are now closed :smile:

I will announce later when the first task will start, probably friday or saturday.

(very busy at the moment)

I will keep all the stats in this post:

[The lucidity challenge - LC1, LC2 and LC3)

Noooooooooooooo :cry:

I finally thought : Hey, lets get started again, I need somethin t drag me into writing in the dj, and such, and the last post tells me I can’t join :sad:

sorry petter, you’ll have to wait until the next LC then :smile:

you can always try doing the challenges for yourself :smile:
