    Non-Lucid Dreams

    1. The King and the Books of Trolls (aka it's been a while)

      by , 08-31-2016 at 07:21 PM (Ophelia's Book O' Fun II)
      This dream was a reward bestowed upon me from my subconscious for having a really rough night sleep. I experienced a little REM atonia that I was unable to transition into a lucid dream from. Then I couldn't get back to sleep for ages. Then this lovely non lucid dream happened:

      I'm recounting this dream initially as narrator, because for most of the dream I was merely third person observer, and entirely unaware of my existence. It started out with a king whose name I don't know, his queen named Elizabeth, the Kings mother, and a small but suspicious looking staff. The king was not a bad man per say, but he wanted the best for Elizabeth. He wanted a big castle lots of gold and servants. But he was not a rich king, so the way he made his riches was by going from kingdom to kingdom and swindling the current king out of his castle and staff and gold. The way he would do this was by betting the king that his mother could make a handful of marbles disappear under some cups. It's not really understood for sure from my perspective if his mother actually had any magic powers or if she was just a really good con artist too, but every time the poor king made this bet, the richer King would lose and the former king and his queen Elizabeth and his staff would inherit the castle.

      The dream really started to get rolling when the poor king inherited a beautiful castle on top of a Mountain with a very steep cliff. The poor King liked the richer King so much that he allowed them to remain on staff in the castle without having to leave or be banished. Now I say that the poor King was not a bad King or inherently evil in anyway, but he was rather greedy. It seems like enough gold was never enough for his queen. sometime went by while they were at their new castle, when the king started to get worried that he wouldn't have enough gold. So he turns to his original staff of servants, who has now been promoted to nobleman and councilman to the king, for ideas on how to acquire more gold and riches.

      The creepy staff started to show their true colors on this one. They met in a conference room in the castle, and this is kind of important: there were seven staff members. This will come up again later. They told the king to tax the peasants nearly to death, and give them the opportunity to make the money back by participating in brutal gladiator style sports. The nobleman would pay gold to watch the sports. Then the peasants would pretty much all die from these bloodsports. So basically the king only made money and lost none with this idea. The queen was in the room during this discussion, and begged the king not to do this. But the king had changed somehow, from fear of losing money and losing her and brain washing from this evil staff, he wouldn't listen to her. She pulled on his arm and begged him to look at her and change his mind, when he yanked his arm out of her grasp, reared back and smacked her in the face.

      The queen asked what her punishment would be for standing up to his Royal highness. His face looked evil now, as he said that her punishment would be to be beaten in the dungeons and then banished where she would probably just get killed by the peasants. So she backed away from him towards the door to the balcony if the conference room and begged him for one last drink of wine with him from their marital chalices. He had an expression on his face like it was a stupid idea, but he turned to fetch the chalices anyway. The moment he did this, the queen jumped from the balcony to her death. The king screamed her name and rused to the balcony.

      This is where the dream took a really odd turn for me specifically. I was suddenly not so much observing the story as I was a little bit a part of it now. No one could see me but I was able to walk to the balcony and stand right next to the king where we both looked down. You couldn't even see all the way to the bottom. All I could see was a final wisp of the Queens red silk dress as it disappeared beneath the fog. I never even heard the sound of her hitting the ground. At that moment I flipped over to the other side of the balcony and hung onto the edge so that I could face the king, willing him to see me. I said "your majesty, we have to do something. Your queen's dead body is on the ground and someone is going to see it." The expression on his face looked as if he could hear me a little bit, but couldn't see me. I repeated myself louder, and suddenly his wide grief-stricken eyes were directly upon me. I told him that I would go get the body before somebody saw her, and I told him that I would be his new counsel from now on because I believed that his current seven members were evil trolls in disguise as humans. He simply nodded and turned around and left.

      So I let go of the balcony, and floated slowly down to the ground. I remember thinking to myself that I must be some kind of fairy lol. I couldn't see the queen at first so I kept walking down the gutters that were all along the base of the cliff. I finally saw the wind fluttering through some red material. It was the queen's dress, but it wasn't the wind moving the fabric, she was moving. I rushed up to her and I noticed that she was very much alive. I was worried that she was in a lot of pain and probably dying from such a fall, but she sat up and looked at me. I asked her if she could walk, and she stood up but stumbled a little. So I decided to carry her back into the castle and hide her to keep her safe until I managed some kind of plan .

      Of course there was an elevator in the castle. My silly ass subconscious. I got on to the elevator still holding the injured queen, when I noticed there was a staff member operating the elevator. Not one of the original seven, but one of the original staff of this castle before the poor king inherited it. I asked for the six floor, because I knew there was a library on that floor. For some reason that seemed important at the time. The queen suddenly looked up at the elevator operator and recognized him as a troll in human disguise. I asked if he was going to turn us in. He said he would not. Not all the trolls in the castle were evil, and he hinted that he knew I knew which ones were.

      The only way the queen could have survived that fall, as well as being able to recognize disguised trolls, was if she were also magic in some way. I wasn't sure if she was a fairy or troll or what, but I took her to the library on the 6th floor and was able to turn her into a wisp of smoke and hide her in one of the books. A red book. There she remained for the next 6 years, healing and gathering strength, while the king and his 7 continued with the plan to extort gold from, as well as the lives of the peasants.

      It didn't feel like 6 years, it was just referenced by someone, I forget. But I did watch some of those 'games.' They were awful: partially dismembered peasants limping and crawling through a muddy coliseum, trying not to get mauled by wild animals or trampled by gladiators on horse drawn carriages. There was lots of blood and mud and screams. I decided it was time to finally end this madness.

      I went to the library and grabbed the book with the queen. I also grabbed 7 green books, and kept them all concealed. I spoke to the queen in the book, telling her it was time to confront the king again, and that I would take care of the 7. She expressed concern that it was one thing for a king's ego to sustain the truth about being wrong in the moment about a single wrongdoing, but it was another for the same ego to withstand the force of realizing he had been wrong for 6 years. I told her this had to be done regardless. Besides, seeing that his beloved Elizabeth had survived might soften the blow.

      I went to the conference room to speak with the king, but of course the 7 were with him. I asked for privacy but they wouldn't budge. So I turned them into wisps of smoke and hurtled each one into a green book, while keeping the book of the queen still hidden. I told the king to listen to me and keep an open mind about this. I pulled out the queen's book, a red silk book similar to her dress fabric, and opened it, facing the pages toward the king. She poured out of the book into a pool of silvery smoke, and barely took on a corporeal form. He tried to embrace her but couldn't. She told him to listen to her, as tears streamed from his eyes. He said, "Elizabeth" so sweetly, and she just began to take on her human form once again, and them I woke up.

      I'm pretty sure everything turned out OK.

    2. "Fuck You" Got Me into Trouble, Even Though I Saved a Guard

      by , 02-25-2016 at 03:20 AM (Ophelia's Book O' Fun II)
      Nonlucid.

      I don't recall how the dream began, only how I was leaving a store of some kind. The store's security guard, a sweet looking old man, was standing outside. I walked past him toward my car then heard a ruckus behind me. I looked back at the guard and noticed a 10-12 year old kid was kinda messing with him. "Lemme see your handcuffs!!" The old man obliged, and then the kid handcuffed the guard to a newspaper dispenser and took his keys. He ran to a car where 2 women, who were clearly his mom and a friend, sat in the front 2 seats chitchatting and paying attention to nothing going on. I ran after the kid and said "Give me back those keys you bitch." The 2 women stopped talking and stared at me. The kid, clearly feeling busted, gave me the keys. I looked at the kid and yelled "Fuck you kid," then looked at the 2 women and yelled, "Fuck y'all too!"

      Bitches.

      I went to the guard and freed him, and he said to me, "Well you didn't handle that very well. You shouldn't have cussed at them."

      Bitch.

      Later on I had a dinner party and those 2 women showed up. They said they felt uncomfortable about me saying "fuck you" to them earlier, and left, and took all the other guests with them.

      Bitches.

    3. Me, My Sister, and Charlie

      by , 02-09-2016 at 10:02 PM (Ophelia's Book O' Fun II)
      Non lucid, but super fun rpg-ish kinda thing! I'm a little foggy on the order of events, as dreams tend to have that non-linear thing going for them anyway. I'll try my best to make it make sense for us all. There's going to be a Part I and a Part II. The two parts are only slightly related, but can stand separately, in case you want to read one or the other but not both.

      PART I - The Cube, the Sphere, and the Triangle

      I have no memory of my sister's name, or mine. Just her boyfriend, Charlie. They met at a Ramen Noodle house and fell in love and started dating. Charlie was a scientist, and he was working on inventing something that was pretty controversial. Meaning everyone either believed he couldn't do it, or that he shouldn't do it. My sister unfortunately, was occasionally on the "shouldn't" do it team. Not because she really felt that, but because she was bipolar bat shit crazy. Half the time she was my sweet, smart, pretty, blonde older sister who I looked up to. But then she'd randomly spaz out and get these fits of paranoid delusions and try to start attacking people. Charlie and I started to get a little closer about the time my sister started trying to attack him with syringes.

      Why my sister went cray cray: I don't recall my past, but I believe I was raised by our parents. In England. Because I had an English accent in the dream (don't laugh) but hers was American. She was kidnapped as a child by a freaky American woman who claimed to be her Aunt Ruth (<< I remember it was a name that started with R). Sweet Aunty Ruth told my sister that she (my sister) was brain damaged. She wasn't really, but she grew up believing it. I don't know how or when we were reunited, but the damage had been done. Most of the time she was normal, but you never knew when she'd have one of these fits, or what would trigger it.

      Charlie was almost done with this project, that was basically a tiny but powerful apparatus. It reminded me of that thing Doctor Oct was trying to make in Spiderman. But instead of this thing having the same power as a small star, it had the capability of producing massive quantities of water. Oh yeah, there was a water shortage on earth. Charlie set it up in a park, hoping to help keep all the plants and animals there alive, and then see how green things could get from it. It's hard to describe, but he set this little shiny metal box inside a giant clear sphere. The sphere was full of teeny holes. When the box was clicked to "ON" I guess haha, it just exploded with water. Once the sphere filled with water, the force of it shot out through all the tiny holes in very fine sprays. And there was some electricity involved because I remember he turned it on at night, and the water reflected all these different colored lights. It was AWESOME I wish I could draw it. It looked like a very fancy water fountain installation, except the water came from itself.

      My sister had tried to stop him at the apartment we 3 lived in earlier that day. She attacked him with syringes and he fought her off. She ran off and we hadn't seen her since. So I went with him to the water installation site because I believed in it, and him ofc (yeah you know where this is going). The sphere put out sooo much water, that it began to form a small creek that was moving downward through the park. I grabbed Charlie's hand and pulled him into a run, so I could find where the water was headed. It was already connecting to the town river, which had been dried up for ages. He said it was better than he had planned, and I felt proud In retrospect, I sure hope the cube had an "OFF" switch

      Later on Charlie and I were back in the apartment, waiting for my sister. We talked about her past and stuff, and he seemed to have an unspoken forfeiting despair about her. Or was that just wishful thinking. Hey it's MY dream We stayed up a while, and I remember him trying to do some experiments on the drugs in the syringes she was attacking him with. Turns out they were tranquilizers. Where on earth did she get those? Anyway, we both laid down on opposite sides of the same bed. I think it was my bed, yeah it was, because my phone and charger were on my bedside. We both fell asleep, but my phone went off at 5am, and I swear that this was a glitch alarm. It went off and Siri said "It is 5am, and you need a massage." "Charlie, I swear that this is a glitch on my phone, I didn't make it do that." He just laughed and started rubbing my back anyway. A moment of silence please while I recall the massage ............

      It was not the kind of massage that you give to your girlfriend's little sister, I don't care HOW crazy she is. But I was the one who supported him and believed in his work, and you were the one attacking him with needles then running off.. [shrugs]. Neither of us said a word, he just kept rubbing my shoulders and back, while we laid on our sides, and I kinda kept scooting closer, and so did he, until we were practically spooning. Then he stopped, and took one of my hands and just held it over the covers. BUT he held it over the part of the covers where is tra-la-laaa was. And I could tell that the massage had an effect on him too, and he was making me painfully aware of it. Many times. I rolled over and laid on his chest, and wound my fingers around the elastic band of his boxers, but went no further than that. His heart was pounding in my ears. It was too much, I felt guilty. So I got up and so did he, and we sat at the breakfast table playing with blocks, waiting for my sister still. I got sleepy after a while and decided to go back to bed. I kissed him on the back of his neck and that was the last time I saw him. Because after I went to the bathroom (didn't go back to bed), and put on this amazing costume and did my hair and makeup, I went back to the kitchen and he was gone.

      Part II starts out as me looking for Charlie, but ends up being something quite different.

      Part II - I'm an Ancient Wizard on a Mission

      Charlie was gone, which was too damn bad because I looked crunk! I was wearing a dress that looked like something Arwen would have worn. Lots of dark maroon crushed velvet and black lacey stuff. My hair was down, dark red and all the way down my back. I looked like some kind of ancient sorceress. No idea why I did this, but I believed I WAS an ancient sorceress too. I guess crazy runs in the family. I left the apartment and was now in a huge fancy hotel. I felt like a wizard in the wrong time. I was confused by elevators and phones. But I managed to find my way to the lowest level bar, which was decorated to look like something from the dark ages. It was as if the hotel was holding a convention for LOTR, because folks were dressed that way there as well. Ahhh! My kind of people. Maybe they know where Charlie went. I walked around the bar, and people looked at me with mixed fear and interest. I got a few wolf whistles and ended up shoving an approaching man away from me with magic. No Charlie here..

      There was a section of the bar roped off for VIPs, but at the time, I didn't know what VIP meant. I just knew that there was more bar to search for Charlie. It just had one guard, so what. "Ma'am this section is restricted for.."
      "I LIVE HERE!!!!!" I opened the door furiously with more magic, and he let me by. There weren't many folks in this bar, and none of them were Charlie. I asked a waitress if she had seen him, and she said she hadn't, but if I would like she could contact me. All she needed was my cell number or an email (wtf is a cell phone or an email?) "Not necessary, I will be back." (Cue Terminator Theme) I walked around a bit more and one guy had a pet wolf. The wolf ran up to me growling, but before it could attack, I tamed him with a thought. Then he wouldn't leave my side until I decided to go. I gave some verbal command in a made up language, and he ran back to his master. As I tried to leave, my foot got caught in a phone cord. "Damn you 21st century!!!" I hissed. I tried to hang it back up the way it was, but you could still hear the dial tone. I just looked at the waitress and said, "It appears to be broken." And then I left. Had some trouble with the elevators then woke up.

      Charlie was played by none other than the very handsome Paul Greene:



      Ahhhhh.... thank you subC.

    4. A Horrible HORRIBLE Nonlucid

      by , 07-13-2015 at 07:58 AM (Ophelia's Book O' Fun II)
      I dream these alot with my current or past pets.

      As with any dream, something might morph into something else. So what started out as Snuggles the Siamese, turned into Ziggy at some point. But that's not the point.

      Sofie was grooming Snuggles/Ziggy, behind a couch. And where she licked him, which was on one side of his ribcage, the hair was gone, and the skin was like cooked salmon. I freaked out and tried to tend to the area, but chunks of fishy skin would flake off. I kept telling myself that new healthy skin would grow underneath and replace it. He didn't seem to be in pain. Fortunately as I was examining the flakey skin, he turned over so that the affected area was against the floor. I just didn't want Sofie to lick it anymore.

      I love how no where in the dream did I consider a vet or sequestering one cat from the other. I was glad to wake up from it though. Yuckypoo.

    5. Snow & Band

      by , 07-07-2015 at 09:09 AM (Ophelia's Book O' Fun II)
      More missed dream signs.

      Non lucid nap. It was super snowy outside, and I played in it. Slid down and around it. Even messed up the virgin snow as much as I could, like I always do in real life.

      Later I was in high school band/orchestra. I volunteered to play 3rd chair behind Stephen: the talented horn player who could never get out of the 3rd band rut because they needed a good horn player in the 3rd band. Politics. At any rate, I was happy to play 3rd chair behind his 1st chair. And I think my subC mixed him up a bit with the horn-playing Stephen that I dated in college.

    6. My Patronus and My Fortune - TOTM WILDs

      by , 09-04-2014 at 07:56 PM (Ophelia's Book O' Fun II)
      I had a really loooong WBTB. I went to bed probably 1am, then woke up at about 7am and didn't go back to sleep until 11:30ish! I tried everything to go back to sleep: incubating dreams, relaxation techniques, clearing my mind, filling my mind, solo sexy time.. nothin. Finally Danny came back from working out and took a shower, and as soon as he left the room after his shower, I began to drift off and felt some vibrations.

      As the vibrations cycled a couple times, I let the HH version of a fish bite my hands. I felt like it was anchoring me for some reason. Anyway, I started out in my bed lucid as usual, and thought right away of the toilet task. So I went to the master bathroom, and lifted the lid. There was a little pee and bit of toilet paper in there, np I'll just flush it. Then I lifted the rim, and there was some pee on it as well, so I took some tp and wiped it off and flushed it. But then it started backing up, and a TON of poop was coming up. I thought of grabbing the plunger, but I was like "I'm not wasting lucid time on this. Even if I plunge it, I'm not going down there now." So I walked back into the bedroom, trying for the life of me to recall the other tasks, but I just couldn't. So I messed with my masculinity for a few minutes then woke up.

      Fortunately, I felt like I could go right back to sleep. So as I was drifting off and feeling the vibrations again, I thought real hard and recalled Robin Williams, fortune cookie, and Patronus tasks. I let the HH version of my cat Gibby bite my hand this time as I transitioned. (I'm trying to play with forming HH stuff so I don't have to rely on vibrations). Anyway, started out in my room again lucid, struggled with the blankets a bit with a sleeping Gibby on the bed. I got up and don't recall how I got to the living room, or some room. It was filled with toys and crap. I picked up something that looked like a long, thin cone. I thought it would work as a magic wand. As I was deliberating over it, I noticed an unsavory shadowy figure in the room. I decided to test a Patronus on him. I aimed the wand at him and yelled "Expecto Patronum!" fully expecting a Dragon Patronus like I wanted. Nothin. I need to have a happy thought too, along with the expectation. It is EXPECTo Patronum, after all. I did it again, louder, and thinking of a certain someone (KM) from college. A bunch of silvery-purple sparkles appeared in the air just in front of my wand, then dropped to the floor. I thought they were about to condense and form some animal Patronus. But all they did was turn into an army of He-man toys that started coming at me haha! I ran across the room and tried again, louder, with an even stronger feeling in my heart along with the memory of KM. I mean I SCREAMED the incantation. A silvery-purple outline of a large animal formed, studded with silvery-purple sparkles. It got denser until it took on the shape of silvery-purple cloudlike Unicorn! A UNICORN!!! Best little girl fantasy ever!!!

      It was galloping toward me as it was becoming more corporeal. I just held out my arms because I wanted to pet it and hug it sooooooooo bad, but then she vanished.
      And I woke up.

      I started drifting off again, but immediately went into a nonlucid where I was walking down the street outside in broad daylight. I got to our house and there was a huge Christmas tree in the front yard. It had a candycane like ornament on it, and I broke off a long piece, thinking that it would be good to use for the Patronus task again. I started questioning if I was dreaming, but I just wasn't 100% sure. I went into the house and tried the spell again anyway, because I wanted my unicorn lol. As I was trying and trying, I suddenly heard my son Chris in another room, saying "HAHA who's screaming Harry Potter quotes around the house?!" I was so embarrassed, was I doing this iwl? I ran into the hall bathroom and stood up on the toilet as I could hear my son barreling down the hall. I thought I would just scare the crap out of him once he walked by, which I did, and he dropped a bunch of fast food and ran off lol. I went back to the hall and walked until I ended up in the family room, and there was another christmas tree. Whaaaaat? It's not christmas. Lucid! I decided to give up the Patronus totm for now since I already did it, and thought of the fortune cookie totm. I recalled that Chris has some fast food, so I went into the kitchen, saying to myself "I'm going to look in one of the boxes of left over Chinese food that's still in there." And sure enough, there were some styro-foam boxes stacked up on the kitchen floor. I opened the first one and set it on the stove, and there were wrapped fortune cookies right inside. *highfive subC!* Some were broken, but at least 2 were in tact. I opened the first one, and at first I saw the word "Important" on the little white strip of paper. But when I unfolded it all the way, it just said "2, 3, uhhh, 4" Wow. I opened the second one, and a large square of paper was inside. Here's what it said:

      So, you think you're a dirty boy?
      DOODLE DOODLE TOSS TOSS
      DOODLE DOODLE TOSS TOSS
      DOODLE DOODLE TOSS TOSS
      DOODLE DOODLE TOSS TOSS
      (972) ###-####
      After reading that, I just propped up my head on the stove and laughed so hard. I laughed until I could feel my eyes crying, in the dream. A true lucid cry laugh haha. Wow. I know now what my subC truly thinks of me: I'm either so lost that I can't even count properly, or I'm a dirty boy. Or at least I think I am. Doodle doodle toss toss, ladies and gentlemen.

      I woke up from that still loling, and that was that.

    7. Post Podcast Residue Strikes Again!

      by , 01-23-2014 at 07:52 PM (Ophelia's Book O' Fun II)
      Although not in lucid form this time. I've been having bouts of insomnia this week, so last night when I accidentally awoke during the Witching Hour, I decided to try to WILD, recalling what CL and I had discussed in the podcast last night about getting back to sleep successfully after a WBTB. I fell right back to sleep, and proceeded to miss some pretty big signs in this Post Zombie Apacolyptic dream:

      I was suddenly standing in an alley in a residential area, with no memory of who I was. I instantly thought to myself "Ok, try to remember where you just were, and where you were headed.." (per the RC solution to help with the "jump cut" problem we discussed in the podcast last night ). I had no clue who I was or where I was, but pretty soon I noticed that there weren't any people anywhere. And things looked pretty trashed. Like when the scavengers have finished raiding houses after some kind of mayhem. "Zombie Apocalypse" popped in my head, and I knew it was the truth. I just started skipping through the alley and noticed that I had unusual strength. I could skip several feet in the air, and could go quite fast. (Really, Ophelia? Ffs.) it was a bright warm day, and I remember feeling really thirsty. I had a water bottle on me with maybe 2 sips left. I needed more. I kept skipping along and ended up behind a commercial building of some sort. I noticed a big cooler full of ice and cold water bottles! It made me thing there must be live people close, since the ice looked fresh. But as I went for the water, I heard a loud machine come up behind me. It was a medium sized, remote operated tank that I knew had been designed to wipe out zombies. One if the barrels turned and pointed straight at me. I used my superhuman speed to dive behind the large cooler at light speed. I watched as the tank fired 3 clumsy shots around me, completely missing. Suddenly the machine shut down and I heard a woman's voice. She walked up to me and helped me up, giving me a. Little of water that I don't recall if I ever drank. She told me something about what was going on, but the only part of the conversation that I remember was the explanation as to why I couldn't remember who I was. I was a clone. Humans had been successfully able to clone some of us who had been bitten by zombies, before we turned. The original me was destroyed, and the result was a healthy clone that had superhuman strength. I asked her if she was a clone too and she said yes. No clones had any memories of their original lives. Crazy huh. Anyway she took me to this rigged up clinic where there was a lady doctor who was responsible for some of the cloning. I don't remember why we went there, but when I met the doctor I asked her if she was a clone too. She coughed up some blood into a handkerchief and said no. She had been bitten and didn't have much time left. Before I could ask her if she was going to save herself by cloning herself, I woke up.

      I gotta say, even though this dream was nonlucid and I missed some big signs, and I never even got to see a single zombie, I felt like freaking Alice from Resident Evil. I woke up feeling pretty bad ass

    8. Nonlucids with Kevin

      by , 12-09-2013 at 10:30 PM (Ophelia's Book O' Fun II)
      In the first one, he just came to my birthday party. I remember giving him a big ol hug (the only kind of hug you CAN give to a beasty piece of meat like that), and saying something like "Nothing makes a little girl happier at her birthday party than when her favorite celebrity shows up!" He said "awwwwwww," and I remember my head was chest-level to him (he's 6'7" or something), and I could hear the "awwww" rumbling in his chest. THen he pushed me to the ground and we started making out. As the dream faded, so did he, until I was left holding a book. I don't remember anything about the book, except that when I opened it to the copyright page, all the way at the bottom, filling the tiny sketch of a dragon, it said "Ophelia Productions." I was left with the feeling that Kevin knew this, and he would find me again. Then I woke up.

      Sure enough, I had another nonlucid where Danny and I went to Kevin's wedding. Now, in real life, Kevin Durand is on my celebrity card (you know, the only person you're allowed to cheat on your spouse with.. Danny's is Sandra Bullock). Anyway, throughout this whole dream, Kevin and I are walking around the church, prior to the wedding, holding hands. And I'm thinking to myself, "this is ok, because he's on my celebrity card." But then it starts to dawn on me that probably Kevin's wife to be isn't going to be so accepting lol. At one point we go check on her, and I shake her hand and meet her. This seems to have a fucked up effect on Kevin, because he gets really flustered and kinda sweaty, like he suddenly got a fever. So I took him to another room, fanned his face with a magazine, and wiped his sweaty hair from his brow. I asked him if he was alright, but he was pretty unresponsive. Too bad because he looked good in his tux, minus the jacket. He sat on a cardboard box full of fruit, and started playing with the fruit, when I woke up.

    9. Fun DILD

      I took a late nap, and had a couple WILDs that fizzled out kinda quick. Then suddenly I was dreaming that I was in the car with Danny on my way to work, and I was like 'hey! I was just dreaming a minute ago.' So as Danny was turning a corner, I just opened the car door and jumped out and said later.

      I took to flying and the scenery was beautiful. So green and lush. And the sky was completely cloudy, but with lots of this silver linings (I will have to find a pic). I was flying in my goofy little slow way, where I'm upright, and just kinda flap my arms to change direction or gain altitude.

      I flew near a store that had wedding dresses and wedding cakes in the window display. I thought 'Oooooh I wanna go in and look around.' I landed and looked in the window. I could see a case full of little individual confections of all shapes and sizes and colors. And two Asian ladies were working on a wedding cake on a little island counter. Just a really pretty store.

      I decided to try something I had never tried before, and phase through the glass window while keeping my eyes open, and see if I could keep my vision the whole time with nothing changing. It totally worked haha, beginners luck? Anyway the Asian ladies looked at me and smiled, looking a little confused. I just said "hey don't worry it's just me," and I pinched off a piece of the cake they were working on. The outside was white fondant, but it was impossibly light and not overly sweet. And melted in my mouth and was just delicious. Not possible really to make fondant irl. I praised the ladies for it. The. I went to the pastry case and just stuck one treat after another into my mouth. Everything was delicious. I remember something powdery and hazelnut flavored, and something else carrot cake like. Best dream food ever.

      I decided to leave and on my way out I opened my wallet and it was full of twenty dollar bills. I dropped 4 of them on the floor on my way out lol. When I got outside, the sky had changed drastically! All those silver-lined puffs of clouds had turned into giant jellyfish!!! The sky was filled with them. I looked in awe and excitement and yelled "Wooooow!! Cloud jellyfish !!!!" And as soon as I said that, the sky got dark gray, there was thunder and lightening, and the jellyfish started to move toward me. And they started raining. And where ever the rain hit, here was smoke. Like some kind of acid rain. I wondered if it would be neuro toxic rain too since they were jellies.

      So I admit, fully lucid, I was kinda excited and scared. Kinda like when you play tag but you're outnumbered. So I ran into some random building, just before the jellies got to me. I found some stairs that went down so I ran for it. But as I descended, the acid rain from the overhead jellies burned through the building and started raining on me! I felt it, and it burned and sizzled a bit. It did t hurt really but it did have a kind of electric feeling.

      I kept finding more stairs going down, hoping that the acid rain wouldn't be able to get too me. After a couple more fails, I finally reached what appeared to be an underground garage parking for the building. I was close the the exit and could see outside. Three REALLY big jellies were hovering by the exit. I quickly bid behind a cement pillar. I admit I felt like I was grinning from ear to ear, this was fun! I peeked around the side of the pillar and saw 2 of the jellies leave. Where was the third???? I peeked around the other side, then the opposite side again, nothing. So I started for the exit and the big jelly was right there!! Fucker was hiding on the other side of the pillar!!!! I freaked out and made a gun shape with my hands and went "pew pew pew!" and it hit the floor dead. Fuck yeah.

      I went back outside to have big war against the jellies but I woke up. All fun though. It's nice to take a break from totms sometimes, and just go with the flow

    10. A Little DILD

      by , 07-09-2013 at 08:17 PM (Ophelia's Book O' Fun II)
      I was having a nonlucid about being in a college class. Suddenly all the students starting moving the desks in little rows in the back of the class, so that we could all see the professor's desk better? Something like that. Anyway, after all the seats were rearranged, it situated me right behind a pretty cute guy! Not what i typically go for; he was a little taller than me, light brown hair with one of those hats like ACDC wears. HE was wearing a red flannel plaid shirt, and had a little goatee. Very reminiscent of the guys back in my college days. he flashed me a couple flirtatious looks, before finally asking me out. I think I gave him my number, I seem to vaguely remember struggling with the number (irl I just got a new iphone and number, so it was hard to remember in the dream lol). After class we walked down the hall together, talking about I can't remember what. Our arms swung to our sides as we walked close, occasionally grazing a finger on the other's hand. I was tempted to just hold his hand, but I didn't want to give away so much before the first date.

      That's all i remember from that dream. When I woke up, I was thinking about him. Then I went back into a nonlucid dream about college again. I was headed to a class, when I saw the same guy. I thought to myself "I Just had a dream about this guy!" Yay lucid. I was pretty elated that this DC found me again, and now that I knew it was a dream, I didn't have to play hard to get anymore. I went straight up to him and grabbed him by his stupid flannel collar and kissed him square on the lips. It felt gooooood but I closed my eyes and woke up.

      It was time to get up anyway.

    11. WILD and Failed Advanced TOTM

      by , 05-28-2013 at 09:06 PM (Ophelia's Book O' Fun II)
      Man I've been a real dick about my DJ lately, I apologize. Mainly sorry to myself. Anyway, had a really, uh, nice(?) nonlucid, followed by an ok WILD.

      The non lucid was before my WBTB. 7 celebrities were taping an episode of their newest reality show at my parents old house. We were all there helping. I only remember 3 of the celebrities, which were Kevin Durand (<3), Russell Crowe, and Alec Baldwin. The 3 of them tended to ham it up together alot, I remember that. Anyway, I remember that it was a wednesday, and that the next night would be the last night of taping followed by a big party for them. So we, including the celebrities, were all in charge of cleaning up the house. Kevin got vacuum duty. Watching a 6' 7" hunk of burning love and muscle vacuum my parents' house was just.... nice. I told him to stay out of my old bedroom though (it was too messy and I was embarrassed).

      I was helping mom in the kitchen, and I remember being kinda stressed about everything going on. I leaned against the island counter and rested my head in my hands, when I felt a really large presence come up behind me, and start lightly scratching my back. I whipped around and it was Kevin. I backed up a couple feet with my hands up, saying "Dude! Don't..." (Bear in mind y'all that I believe this is all real, and I'm loyal to my bf). Kevin put his hand over his heart and said, "Ok, ok, I'm sorry. Now I know not to try to get to second base with you at the party tomorrow." Then he grinned at me. I just stood there, completely frozen, when it dawned on me that Danny and I DO have a deal that we can each pick one celebrity if the opportunity presented itself. Danny picked Sandra Bullock, I picked, well, you know who. I said, "Oh are we going to the party together tomorrow?" He just kept grinning and looking sexier than just about anything I had ever laid my eyes on. Then I said something corny about how nice he is in real life, then I ran to my room, looking for something sexy to wear to the party, while humming some opera. That's all I remember from that dream. I woke up at about 6:30am from it, with an emotional hangover.

      Anyway, so y'all can see what I'm working with here:



      The WILD was less interesting. WBTB, then I woke up, rolled over, felt some vibrations. Instead of opening my dream eyes, I just tried to see through my eyelids, and it worked. I could see my room slowly form in front of me, as if my eyelids were becoming transparent. Maybe the 2nd or 3rd time I was able to do this. Really cool. Anyway, I got out of bed, feeling like I really was getting up in real life. I was happy when I left the room and saw the livingroom empty of all furniture, with Chris on the floor playing with toys. I tried to think of the TOTM I wanted to do, and I remember wanting to summon Kevin Durand as the archangel Gabriel from Legion I said "Hey Chris, want to go outside with me and see if we can summon Gabriel?" So he followed me outside. I called to the clouds a few times, but no success. I woke up shortly after.

      Gotta work on those summoning skills!

    12. Robin Williams

      by , 04-09-2013 at 12:36 PM (Ophelia's Book O' Fun II)
      Nonlucid where my family and Robin Williams' family hit it off. We just happened to all be eating at the same restaurant, and someone introduced us. So he told a bunch of funny stories as we laughed (wish I could remember the stories!) Somehow, by the end of dinner, I volunteered to watch Robin's new baby (he had a new, much younger wife, and they had just had a baby I guess). Was supposed to be for like, 1 hour 2 times a week, while she went to the spa.

      Somehow, I managed to wrestle Tiffany from work to team up with me on this. Only other scene I remember, is that Mrs. Williams had this really elaborate diaper genie that Tiffany decided to take apart and clean thoroughly. As she put it back together, there was a little plastic grommet leftover. She said "Shit, I don't know where this goes." And she just left it in the sink. I think it actually got thrown away. Anyway later on, Tiffany was helping the Mrs. with changing the baby. Tiffany suddenly ran up to me saying, "Oh shit I think we need that grommet! She said the genie isn't working right." I looked everywhere for that grommet but couldn't find it. So I went to tell the Mrs., and she was standing over the genie, which was whirring and smoking lol. I just said, "Ma'am, we can't find the grommet anywhere, so I'm taking the liberty of calling the company who made it, and either get a replacement grommet, or perhaps they can just replace the whole motor and I'll pay for it." (Note: I had a diaper genie for Chris when he was a baby, and there were no "parts" or motors to it, but this thing that Mrs. Williams had was like some kind of steam punk contraption from hell.) I told her that Danny would be home from work, and he could probably rig the thing up for now so it can at least function minimally until the new parts come in. She seemed happy with this. And laughing at the smoke for some reason, something like how it reminded her of a fart? Well, steam coming from a dirty diaper receptacle, fair enough.

      Oh the Williams' ...

      And as per usual, that's about as much as Tiffany contributes at work irl whenever there's a problem. She cusses and then backs away from an issue, and I go immediately for solutions.

      Something with the team leader from produce, I forget his name. He approached me and I was thinking "Aw crap, he's gonna try to complain about the compost and blame it on bakery." But I woke up before he had a chance to open his fat mouth.

    14. More Nonlucid Tomatoes

      by , 03-14-2013 at 06:42 PM (Ophelia's Book O' Fun II)
      Literally and figuratively..

      Gotta be quick: in one non lucid I had that damn dream sign where I'm growing these amazing tomatoes. IRL I can't grow them worth a shit, but in dreams I'll either find, or grow tomatoes in impossibly large sizes or quantities. I had 3 the size of basketballs this time. And they were all misshapen and pockmarked, like those crazy delicious heirlooms we get at work. Anyway, no lucidity there.

      Then another nonlucid where a guy at work (that short goofy little queen from whole body), was asking me about lucid dreaming. He asked specifically about how to bring something from the real world into a lucid dream, and then the opposite. I remember going into detail about doing the TOTM where I wrote on a piece of paper irl, then found it in a lucid. Then I told him about how I had a nonlucid about this lady baking these really huge cinnamon rolls (which was a nonlucid that I had actually had earlier), and then how I had gone to work and we started carrying them (which was another nonlucid I had earlier, where I believed that the dream about the large cinnamon rolls magically appeared at work). Again, no lucidity from that one either.

    15. Two ASTLs

      by , 03-13-2013 at 01:10 PM (Ophelia's Book O' Fun II)
      I went to sleep last night at about 6:30pm, and got up at 5am(no sleep the night before). So I woke up and fell back to sleep alot. I recall the 2 biggest non lucids.

      In the first, I had just started dating ASTL (Assistant Store Team Leader) Wes. He's married irl, and I have a bf irl, and I was aware of both in the dream Anyway, me and Wes are making out on the bed and he pops the "L" word. I just kinda cuddled him, and was about to say it back, though I didn't really feel it. So the cuddle lasted a bit longer when I realized that the time which had passed was too long to say it now and not be really awkward. Interesting note: in my dream, I had a memories of this relationship, even though I hadn't dreamed the memories. Hard to explain, it's kinda like having dream memories of a thing programmed into my mind, even though I hadn't dreamed them. Anyway, one of these memories was that Wes had actually popped the "L" word a while before, and I HAD said it back then. We had also had sex before, but again, I didn't dream it. It was just a dream memory again. So weird. Anyway, we monkeyed around a bit more, then he sat up, took one of my feet in each hand, and opened my legs scissor-like and said, "We need to do it again." The dream memory of us doing it before filled my mind, and it was gooooood. For some reason I felt like I needed a shower, so I said "Ok but after I shower." Then I snapped my legs shut.

      On the way to the shower, I passed by the livingroom, and there was Danny and Chris and my mom and stepdad sitting in the livingroom. Stepdad was being a dick about a clock or something. I looked at everyone in the room, at Danny the most. He was just glued to the TV. I thought how odd it was that I was messing with Wes in just the other room, and no one suspected anything. I felt so guilty that I had apparently cheated on Danny, and sad that there was no going back now.

      I went to the bathroom and made the decision that I would end it with Wes, and never tell Danny a word. I would never do this again, and hopefully I could salvage the relationship. I spent the rest of that dream never getting into that shower, rather piddling with a screwdriver and some loose screws in the wall, trying to tighten the loose ones that were set awkwardly in moisture-rotted wood. It was daytime out, I remember that (I remembered that I wanted to make it a point to record the time of day in my DJ).

      Later, a non lucid about dating ASTL Ryan. Both of these ASTLs are really cute guys by the way, and besides that and both being married ASTLs with kids, I have no idea why I dreamed of either or both of them in this way. Anyway, I was with Ryan in a conference room with other team members I think, and we had just started dating after he broke up with some female DC (not his real life wife). The girl didn't know he got into another relationship, and she suddenly appeared in the conference room, in a huff. She seemed reaaaaally hurt by my dating Ryan.

      She stormed off, and I chased her down the hall. She had an expression of "Don't try to talk to me all sweet in a pitying way.." when I grabbed her arm and yelled, "I don't pity you! I'm just here to tell you that you're doing it wrong." She was like "Doing WHAT wrong?" I said "Look, y'all broke up, now we're going out. If you want to pine over him like this, then you're not hurting me or him, just you. You're supposed to move on and find someone to make you happy, not continue on in misery over someone you can't have anymore. YOU are you only true love, when it comes down to it. So you have to take care of yourself. Well, when you have kids, then they become you're true love, but you know what I mean." She had a look of understanding dawning on her face, and she said "Thank you" and meant it.

      So I galloped back to the conference room, ready to proudly convey my triumphant story to Ryan, and how we were all cool now (if only it were that easy irl). Well it wasn't that easy because I got distracted on the way as I walked past a room making some amazing looking skillet bread. These lovely loaves were springing up all over these baking stations, in white hot wrought iron flat tops. Then I remembered Ryan. I ran like lightening to the original conference room, but the door was locked, and the room was dark and empty. I pounded the glass and said DAMNIT! I was really bummed.

      Then Ryan appeared in the doorway of an outside stairwell just behind me. I was happy again Why aren't these fuckers this cooperative in my lucids?? I regaled the tale of his ex to him, and he seemed satisfied. We went outside and down the stairs, and sat on a bench looking out over the sea on a cool, cloudy day. It was nice. I put my hand on the back of his neck (this guy is super muscular, by the way. Premature gray hair and lovely blue eyes, whereas Wes is blond, has HUGE saucer like blue eyes, and looks like a grown up Ralfie from Christmas Story). Then my hand moved down to his muscular shoulders, and I began massaging them. He reciprocated by turning toward me, and pulling me to him, allowing my to lay my head on his broad chest. My jaw felt really tight and awkward (I think I may have been lying weird on my pillow irl). Otherwise, I would have started macking down on him right then and there.

      I woke up then, and was confused as to why I had just had 2 ASTL dreams that were so similar. Note that in the second one, it was in a universe where I wasn't and hadn't been with Danny. When I woke up between those 2 dreams, it woke up real life Danny for a moment. He said "Did I wake you?" and I said "No I just woke up from a dream. It wasn't a really good dream anyway."
