      Lucid Games

      Just a short dream fragment. I was at my grandma's house and watching TV with her. We were watching the "Lucid Games". I became lucid right after hearing about it. I didn't run off to do anything crazy though. I just sat their and watched the games. They were sort of like the Olympics, but for lucid powers instead. One game I do remember was a transformation contest.

      Dinner With Aliens

      It was the middle of the night and I was inside some farm house. I had the urge to go outside an look for something. When I went outside, I looked up at the sky and saw a UFO. "Holy shit." I said. I became lucid at this point for obvious reasons. Even though I was lucid, I wasn't in the mood to see aliens, so I ran. I ran back into the house and went through the back door. There was a cellar right outside there. I opened the cellar and could feel the energies of the aliens coming closer. There weren't any stairs to the bottom and it was very dark. I felt the aliens just around the corner, so I jumped down the hole into the cellar.

      The hole was like a giant slide. I just slide down the metal slope for about 10 seconds before I hit the bottom. I could still feel the aliens nearby and I ran around the basement looking for another place to run. I saw some vents in the walls. I was worried it could lead to a dead end, but I decided to take my chances. I jumped into the vent and started crawling through. I then fell into some room full of that fluffy insulation stuff. I ran around the room and looked for another place to run, but it was a dead end. At that point I decided to give up and face the aliens. It was just a dream, so I figured they couldn't be too bad.

      Two teenage girls then crawled through the vents and fell into the room. I put my hands up in the air to show that I had given up. Aliens that look like girls wasn't quite what I was expecting. One of them put a collar and leash around my neck for some reason. The other one then mentioned something about having dinner with the humans. So the dream skipped and I'm sitting at a dinner table with my family and the two aliens. I woke up shortly after this.

      Lucid Protesters

      Another fragment. I was standing in a crowd of people who were protesting against lucid dreaming. They were saying that it was dangerous to our society. So of course, this made me lucid and I flew straight up into the air to piss them off.

      Redirecting Lightning

      Once again, just a dream fragment. I was standing in the middle of an open field during a thunderstorm. I was lucid, but I'm not quite sure why. I saw that the lightning in the sky was becoming more active. I knew it was going to strike soon. I then remembered how Iroh could redirect lightning on Avatar. So I became completely aware and waited for it to strike. The a bolt of lightning then came down towards me and I pointed my fingers at it. I took my other hand and guided the lightning down my arm and into my stomach. I then pointed back towards the sky and released it into the clouds. It felt very intense and energetic.

    2. Smashing Desks, Club Ambush (January 17, 2012)

      by , 01-19-2012 at 07:12 AM (Chronicles of Ethos)

      Smashing Desks

      The dream started out with me, Chris, and other DCs I don't care about sitting in a class room. The teacher was teaching something, but I really did not care about it. The bell soon rang and everyone but me and Chris left. We then walked over to a couple sledge hammers leaning against the wall.

      "Ready to get smashing?" Chris asked.
      "What if we get caught?" I asked him.
      "Well I don't go to this school, but you need a disguise." He said thinking.

      "I bet if I morph into a dragon he will never know!" I said right after I became lucid.
      "Alright then let's do it.!" He said excited.

      I stepped back prepared myself for a morph. I did a backflip and transformed into a white dragon half way through. We both picked up the hammers and started destroying desks and stuff. It was loads of fun and I was laughing the whole time. Then the teacher came through the door. The three of us stopped and stared at each other.

      "What are you two doing?" He asked calmly.
      "Run." Chris said quietly.
      "Holy crap run!" I yelled.

      We both ran through the door on the right. As we ran down the hall I started looking for a place we could hide.

      "Hide there!" I said pointing to the men's restroom on the left.

      I ran up to the door first and tried to open it, but it was locked.

      "It's locked!" I said.
      "Just use the woman's restroom." Chris said pointing to the right.

      So we both ran into the woman's restroom and hid in one of the stalls.

      "Be quiet. I can heard him coming." I told Chris.

      We heard the door slam open and Chris soon covered his mouth. I heard the footsteps aproach the first stall. He paused for about 5 seconds before opening it. Then he moved on to the second and paused again before opening. We were a few stalls away so we had time to think of a plan. I motioned Chris to the floor with me. Unfortunately Chris was a little too panicked and confused to understand my plan. I grabbed Chris's leg with my tail and started crawling. I timed my movement with his pauses so we could sneak out.

      Once we finally got out the door we started running down a different hall and made a few turns. Then we ran into a room that looked like a hotel lobby. I stopped in the middle of the room and Chris ran off down another hall to the left.

      "See you later!" He shouted back to me.

      I walked up to a lady behind a desk.

      "Your room is up the stairs to the right." She told me.
      "Thanks!" I said and started running again.

      I ran over to a staircase in the left corner of the room. I then heard what sounde like the teacher's voice and ran up the stairs really fast. I ran into my room and locked the door. For the most part it looked like my real life room. I looked for a place to hide. To the left I noticed an extension to my room. I walked into a closet like area and found a door in there. I opened the door and behind it was another door.

      "What the hell?." I said.

      I then opened the second door and behind it was another door.

      "Are you serious? Another door?" I said annoyed with my dream.

      I opened the third door and it actually led somewhere. It looked like a dark and creepy basement with its own touch of evil. Just looking at it seemed to generate fear itself. It reminded me of a place from an old nightmare. I closed the door and decided not to go in there because I didn't feel like it was worth the trouble.

      I started panicking again when I realized I was out of hiding places. The door handle started jiggling and I decided I need to transform back to human. I stood in place and focused on becoming my old human self. When the transformation was over I looked at myself in third person. I had clothes on and human arms and legs. I still had a dragon face, hands, feet, and a tail though.

      "That's not right..." I said looking at my mixed form.

      Despite the lock the door opened up and the man came in. I then ran towards the window and planned to make a jump for it. I crashed through the window, but the man grabbed me back the back of my shirt and pulled me in. I then prepared for my punishment.

      "Hey! That was pretty good joke you pulled on me earlier!" He said laughing.

      I woke up after that.

      Club Ambush

      Everything from what I can remember in this dream was lucid. It was night and I was walking down a city street. I had made plans with a few DCs to meet at club. It had something to do with ambushing an enemy that was using the club as a base. I was carrying a yellow bag full of equipment that they said would be necessary and a couple dice. I walked over to a lavender building that only stood out because of a short man in black guarding it. I had to find a way to sneak the bag past him so I could get the equipment in.

      I walked up to him and held out the pair of dice. The dice were supposed to act as a sort of permission slip to grant access to the club. I dropped the dice on the ground to distract him and tossed the bag over his head as he bent over to pick up the dice. Luckily he didn't notice and let me in. I grabbed the bag and walked into an area that looked like a restaurant. There were three DCs sitting at a table looking at me. One was Chris, the second was the elf, and the third was my "contact". So I walked over to the table and sat down between the contact and the elf.

      They told me that there was going to be an ambush. I think they said something about an enemy ambush planned at the same time of our ambush. To pass the time we played a game with a stack of gold coins. I took a small stack and counted them.

      "1, 2, 5, 7..."
      "I think that's 4." The elf said.
      "1, 4, 3, 2... Okay I can't count when I'm dreaming." I said dissapointed.

      So we started playing the game which involved flicking one gold coin into the other. I soon started thinking about the ambush again.

      "Guys, I'm not sure if I can use my elements when I'm in my human form." I said.
      "Why not?" Chris asked.
      "You better use your elements!" The elf said threatening me.

      So then I decided to keep my mouth shut. I thought about morphing into a dragon at that moment. I decided not to though because it would blow our cover. As I was thinking about it I saw two men with guns drop down from the cieling on the other side of the room. The ambush had begun and my three allies got up from the table. The elf took out one of the guys with some sort of shadow spell. Apparently we weren't expecting them to have guns so we had to make a run for it. Chris took the lead and guided us towards the door to a storage room that also had a backdoor. By this point a few more enemies had arrived and were shooting at us.

      Chris was trying to open the backdoor, but it was locked. A man then came towards the storage room with an smg aimed at us. I quickly ran past my friends and let out a huge burst of earth energy as the man fired at us. I was able to use this energy to provide a shield as Chris worked to open the door.

      "Yeah! I knew you could do it!" The elf said congratulating me.

      It wasn't very easy keeping the shield up as bullets pounded into it though. Chris finally opened the door and the three of them ran outside. I released my shield when the man stopped to reload. I ran to the backdoor and followed my team. Rather than a city, the door led deep into a forest near a river. The man chased after me and fire a quick short burst. A bullet then went into my left leg and I fell on the ground. The elf then turned around and used some sort of explosive spell on the man. Chris helped me back on my feet and we started running again. My leg was seriously hurting by this point though and I was limping. We ran a short distance along the river before coming to a bridge that crossed the river. The ran down under the bridge and tried my best to follow. I stumbled and fell down the river bank. I was lying at the water's edge in too much pain to move and my vision blurring. I could see a couple men aproaching and they started firing in my direction. Chris soon rushed in and dragged me under the bridge. I could then see the elf casting lightning bolts at the soldiers to provide protection. This was the last thing I saw before I passed out.

      When I woke up there was an very strong pain in my left leg. It wasn't like where my leg falls asleep and there is dull pain all over. In one point of my leg it felt like I was being stabbed. It hurt so bad I almost wanted to scream. Luckily it went away after about 5 minutes.

    3. First Lucid (7 Years Old, Dream Chain)

      by , 04-30-2011 at 02:20 AM (Chronicles of Ethos)
      General text non-lucid awake lucid

      I decided to go ahead and put my first lucid dream into my dream journal. I also added the dreams that led up to this lucid. These dreams happened over 3 days when I was 7 years old.

      In the first dream I had, I was standing out on my school's playground. The sky started to turn red. Everyone stopped what they were doing and looked up at the sky. I remember there being a large cloud over us, and I think it was skull shaped. There was a sense dread and impending doom. Everyone was looking up at the sky horrified. (They looked kind of funny staring at the sky with their jaws dropped actually. ) I went back inside the school and I walked up to the library on the 3rd floor. There was another kid there staring out the window with a book. I asked, "Why is the sky red?" He responded dramatically, "The world coming to an end!"

      I woke up shortly after that. I thought this dream was kind of weird and creepy, but I didn't pay much attention to it until the next day.

      In the second dream, it was a continuation from the last dream, but it took place on the day after the sky turned red. The sky was still red this day with the large cloud in the sky. I started my dream in front of my school. I didn't see anyone around the school or on the playground, so I went inside thinking that I was late. I entered a hallway, but it was dark, empty, and a mess inside. There was still no one in sight, no noise, and no sign of life. Desks and chairs were knocked over in the hallway, there was rubble on the floor, the wall was half destroyed, and the floor was cracked. At this point I was really starting to feal fear because I felt like the last guy in the world, I was scared of whatever destroyed everything, and I remembered the kid from the last dream saying that the world was coming to an end. Despite my fear, I continued down the hallway to find my classroom.

      My dream ended and I woke up right before I would have entered my classroom. This dream felt more realistic than the last one and it was scarier for me. I even watched the sky half of the day wondering if it would turn red.

      The third and final dream continued right about where the last one left off. It started with me sitting in the dark room at my desk. There was still no living thing in sight. I again started to wonder where everyone was for a few seconds. As I was thinking about this, the lights flashed on and all my classmates and my teacher seemed to flash into view with the light. They just walked around the room and worked on a project as if they had been there the whole time. I got up from my desk and asked my teacher, "Where did everyone go?" Everyone just turned and glared at me with angry expressions on there face. As they focused on me, their eyes started to glow red. In my mind all I could think was they wanted to chase me and kill me. And of course, they started to chase me out the door.

      I ran back out into the hallway and then out to the playground. As I ran up the hill on the playground, I stared up at the sky and noticed it was still red and had the large cloud. I remembered this from the past 2 dreams and said to myself, "Wait! I'm dreaming!" I stopped at the top of the hill and turned to face the mob. I wanted to wake myself up before the mob could get to the top of the hill. Without giving it much thought, I started screaming, "Wake up! Wake up! Wake up!" As I said this, pictured my real body hidden behind the red sky until I could feel it. I then tried to kick my legs and lift my arms. This required a lot of effort though. As I tried to lift my arms and legs, it felt like someone was pulling them back down. When the mob was about half way up the hill, the dream faded away.

      My eyes opened and I was punching and kicking the air with ease. I was sweating and my heart was racing, but I knew I was now sitting safely in bed. I soon got really excited after that because I never had a dream where I knew I was dreaming before. As I started to get more dreams like this, I called them "super dreams" because it felt like a different side of me took over and played as a super hero. They were mostly triggered by nightmares, and this new part of me was like a self defense mechanism against nightmares. It wasn't until I was 13 that I learned there was a name for these dreams and they didn't have to be related to nightmares.

      My Thoughts on these Dreams

      Aside from the apocalypse aspect of it, that was awesome! A couple "super dreams" later, and I learned that I didn't have to run from nightmares. I could fight them! Always felt awesome. This is one of my favorite dream chains even though it was a continuous nightmare.

      I think the reason why whenever I try to wake myself up and something pulls me down is because of sleep paralysis. Sleep paralysis isn't my best friend when trying to get away from a mob.
