      Missing Baby

      The dream started off with me in a room that was sort of like a tunnel. There were a bunch of pipes lining the walls here. I had a wrench and I was looking for a broken pipe that someone had asked me to fix. At the end of the room I found a pipe shooting out a lot of steam. I took my wrench and hit the pipe about 20 times to fix it. I then took notice to the tunnel exit to my right. It was just a big hole in the wall that led to the Loudonville public pool. There were a lot of people there, but they seemed oddly busy. It looked like they were searching for something.

      I was about to go help them find whatever they were looking for, but another pipe broke next to me. It shot a bunch of steam at me as I hit it repeatedly with my wrench. After I fixed that one, 2 more broke and I had to fix them. I kept watching and listening to the people at the pool as I fixed the pipes. I noticed that they were starting to become more panicked and worried. I also heard a woman yell something about a baby several times. I pieced it all together and assumed that someone's baby had gone missing. I decided that a missing baby was more important than stupid steam pipes that keep breaking all the time. I walked over to the pool towards a woman that seemed to be giving directions.

      "Hey, is something wrong?" I asked her.
      "Yes, a woman's baby has gone missing. We have no idea where he is. He could be in the pool, the playground, the building..." She said.
      "Okay, is there anyway I can help?" I asked.
      "You can go search in the pool with that boy over there." She said pointing to a younger kid.

      I jumped into the pool and swam over to him. He looked like he was around 10 years old.

      "Hi, my name's Jonathan. I was told to help you search for the baby." I said.
      "Hi, I'm Colton. I haven't found any signs of him yet." He said.

      He dived back under the water to search some more. I decided to do same and look for the baby underwater. We examined the entire pool area, but we found no signs of the baby. I then saw that the water in the pool also flowed into a nearby building. Sort of like one of those tunnel of love rides. I called Colton over and we both swam into the tunnel. It was a little dark in there so we had to feel around a little in our search. As I searched, I started to wonder what the point of searching for the baby underwater would be. I called Colton back to the surface to talk to him.

      "Why are we looking for a baby underwater? If he was under the water he would be dead." I said.
      "That's a good point if he was alive, but what if he is dead?" Colton asked.
      "I don't know, but dead or alive, it seems strange that a baby could get so far away on its own."
      "A little strange I guess."
      "Is the baby simply missing or was it kidnapped? Is there a ransom?" I thought out loud.
      "Maybe." He said after thinking it through.
      "If so, then he would be alive and hidden somewhere with the kidnappers."
      "How is that supposed to make things easier?"
      "We now have a better idea of where to look. Let's go look on the surface for a a secret doors, tunnels, or caves."

      We both climbed out of the river onto the concrete flooring in the tunnel. I searched the left side of the tunnel and Colton searched the right. We were searching the walls and floor for something odd that could give us a clue. I got distracted from my search when I saw a girl up ahead searching the tunnel. I think it was Molly again.

      "Hey, what are you doing in here?" I asked.
      "I think the baby might be around here somewhere." She said.
      "Let's work together. I think it might have been kidnapped."
      "Okay."

      I walked up ahead of them and continued to search. I saw a light coming from the left side of the tunnel, which told me there was a room there. I walked to the light and found a well furnished living room.
      For some reason I gained a low level of lucidity here. I was about to leave the room, but then I thought this room was way too odd to pass by. I looked at the left corner in the far end of the room. I slowly walked towards it because it didn't seem right. When I got close I realized that there was a staircase to a basement hidden behind the left wall. It was an optical illusion that made the left and front walls appear connected from a distance.

      I slowly walked down the stairs with my heart beating faster. At the bottom, I put my back against a wall next to a hallway. I closed my eyes and focused on my hearing to try pick up any noises from around the corner. I heard the sound of a baby crying from the hallway. I then heard a woman from the hallway say, "Shh... Quiet..." Now knowing that there really were kidnappers actually shocked me a little. I used my energy sense to try to get a better view. I could see a woman holding a baby in her arms and a muscular man standing behind them. The baby looked just like the ones from the "Uncontrollable Fury" and "Possessed" dreams. I estimated their location to be about 3 or 4 rooms down the hall on the right side.

      I walked back up the stairs quietly to go tell Colton and Molly. When I got back to the tunnel I saw Colton, Molly, and like 15 other people searching the tunnels. A few of them were even police officers.

      "Where did all of these people come from?" I asked Molly.
      "I called them over here." She said.
      "That's good. Anyways, I need to show you guys something." I said.
      "What?" Colton asked.
      "I found the baby." I said.
      "Then let's go get it!" He said excitedly.

      The three of us walked down the stairs together slowly. I put my back to the wall at the bottom again and Molly did the same. Colton though, didn't understand it all and walked into the hallway. I quickly pulled him back and Molly pushed him back against the wall.

      "Hey! What was that for?" He asked annoyed.
      "Be careful and be quiet." I whispered.
      "What was that?" The man from the other room whispered.

      I heard the man slowly walk into the hallway. I motioned Molly and Colton to run upstairs. We ran upstairs and out of the room. It felt like we just barely got away without being noticed. I saw a few police officers and figured they could be of help.

      "We found the baby." I said.
      "Really? Where is it?" One of them asked.
      "He was kidnapped and taken to a secret basement!" Molly said.
      "Ha! That's good one." Another officer said thinking it was a joke.
      "Just give me your gun and I'll get him." I said.
      "Quit wasting our time kid. We have work to do." One police officer said.

      They turned their backs to use and started talking to someone else. I decided that the three of us would have to bring the baby back ourselves. I motioned Molly and Colton to follow me back into the room. We walked down the stairs quietly together and put our backs to the wall.

      "There's a man and a woman. The woman is the one holding the baby. Get the baby away from her and run." I told Molly.
      "I'm ready." Molly said.
      "I'm ready." Colton said.
      "No, you're staying here where it's safe." I told him.
      "I'll keep watch!" He said excitedly.
      "We rush in on the count of 3. 1...2...3!"

      The two of us quickly ran into the hallway together. After hearing us, the woman stepped into the hallway with the baby and stared at us. I felt like something really bad was about to happen to Molly, so I ran in front of her. Right as I did this, the man jumped out from one of the rooms and tackled me. Molly looked as if she was about to stop runnin to help me. I didn't want her to save me though, I wanted her to save the baby.

      "Keep going!" I yelled to her.

      The man held me down against the floor and then stabbed me on the left side of my chest with a knife. He was about to pull the knife out of me and attack Molly. I held him down though and kneed him in the stomach. I could see the shadows of everyone on the wall as I held the man down. From the shadows I saw Molly kick the woman, take the baby, and run. Molly ran back towards the stairs and the woman tried chasing after her. I grabbed the woman's leg with my two feet as she ran by and tripped her. They both tried to get me to release my grip, but I refused. The man pushed the knife deeper and deeper into me. I still didn't let go of them until the moment I died.

      Normally I wake up after I die. This time my dream felt like making fun of me I guess. It was also very weird because I was still lucid. I saw an image of Molly standing on a playground with three zombies. Then a narrator started talking as I viewed this little movie.

      "After Jonathan's death, Molly inherited his favorite SMG." The narrator said.

      I then saw molly pull out an SMG from her backpack. Even though I don't have a gun like that, it was still my favorite. It looked like it was from Left 4 Dead.

      "She vowed that she would use this weapon to fight crime in his name." He said.
      "...You do know this is just a dream and I'm not really dead right?" I said in my mind.

      Molly then pointed the gun at the zombies and shot them until their arms and heads came off.

      "Perhaps one day, with her help, we will see a better world." He said.
      "I want my SMG back..." I said.
      "Remember everyone. Keep on dreaming!"
      "Okay, I'm just going to wake up now." I said irritated.
    2. Tunnel of Spiders, Flying Over Stormreach, A Lucid Contract (February 17, 2012)

      by , 02-19-2012 at 07:53 AM (Chronicles of Ethos)
      DreamLucidAwake

      Once again I didn't daydream about anything in particular. I just wanted to become lucid. That may have influenced the last dream. It's also possible that I may have had spiders on my mind at one point.

      Tunnel of Spiders

      I'm really not sure how to describe this dreamscape. I guess it was sort of like a Colorado dessert with all of the giant rocks and crap. I was walking around the lower area of a mountain with Claire. We were walking along a set of railroad tracks for some time just talking about something. It was probably something important that I really wanted to know. Somewhere in this I either became lucid because of the conversation or because I remembered Claire is a dream guide.

      The tracks led towards a tunnel that was blocked by some really tough spider webs. There was a small cave to our left with a huge brown spider standing in it. Not really huge, but it was like bigger than my foot. It just sat there watching our every move.

      Claire pointed her sword at it and said, "Go kill it."
      "What? Why?" I asked.
      "Those webs won't disappear unless it dies." She said.
      "Why do I have to do it though?" I asked her.
      "Because you're dragonborn!" She yelled.
      "There is no way I'm dealing with anymore dream spiders!" I shouted.

      As I said this the spider from the cave behind me started running towards me. My danger sense alerted me and I started running from it. I kept running in circles as it kept trying to bite my ass. Claire nearly killed me a few times while trying to slash it with her sword. Eventually the spider did jump on me. I grabbed it and threw it on the ground before it could bite me. Claire then stabbed it with her sword repeatedly until the spider stopped twitching. I crawled onto the ground and curled into a ball.

      "I hate spiders, I hate spiders, I hate spiders..." I kept repeating.
      "Don't be such a baby." Claire said.
      "It tried to eat me!" I screamed.
      "Get off the ground already. We have a job to do." She ordered me.

      As I got up, I heard a rumbling sound. I looked down the tracks and saw a train coming. The train slowed down until it stopped in front of the tunnel. Chris stuck his head out the window and waved to us. Apparently he was driving the train.

      "All aboard!" Chris yelled to us.
      "What's with the train?" I asked him.
      "You want to make it through the tunnel alive don't you?" He asked me.

      Claire climbed the ladder onto the top of the train and I followed her. Once I reached the top, the train blew its whistle and started moving again. As It moved towards the tunnel I saw hundreds and hundreds of those giant brown spiders along the tunnel ways.

      "Oh F***..." I said staring at all of them.
      "Don't worry, we'll be fine." Claire said trying to build my confidence.
      "Nope, I'm out of here." I said walking back towards the caboose.

      Claire grabbed my hand and pulled me back. She then forced me into a battle stance as the train went into the tunnel. Claire started charging her lightning magic in her one hand to create a light source. I could now see thousands of spiders swarming around the tunnel. A few of them tried jumping at Claire, but she slashed them with her sword. A few of them jumped at me and I just slapped them away. My heart was racing and I couldn't really think clearly out of fear. 10 or more of them soon surrounded me in my confusion. Claire then jumped between me and them and started defending me. Each time one tried to jump at me she would rush in and slash it with her sword.

      "Calm down, I won't let anything bad happen to you." Claire told me.
      "Okay." I said.

      Seeing her slash spiders to pieces and saying that to me calmed me down some. I could still only punch and slap spiders though. I wasn't thinking about using any of my powers. Claire did a really awesome move with her lightning. She threw a ball of lightning at some spiders and it exploded into bunch of lightning bolts that killed many spiders.I looked at Claire and saw that she was getting exhausted. An extra big one snuck behind her an jumped at her. She turned around and tried to slash it, but she was too late. It held her down and started clawing at her (these spiders had claws).

      This really angered me and I gave myself dragon hands. I gripped the spider's stomach with my claws and lifted it off of Claire. I ripped the spider's stomach open and threw it off of the train. Claires blood seemed to have attracted hundreds of other spiders who were previously docile. I tried to get Claire back up, but she could barely move. As the spiders moved closer I realized it was up to me to protect her this time.

      I stood above Claire and created a shield of fire around us. It burned every spider that touched it, but they were starting to overpower it. I was really starting to struggle to keep the shield up. Claire then started to wake up a little.

      "Release your fury..." She said.
      "What?" I asked confused.
      "Do it." She said before passing out again.

      I really started to get angrier at this point and sort of understood what she meant. My whole body started glowing with a purple energy and my fire shield grew more poweful. I slowly let this power build up inside me. When it was full, I let out a powerful draconic roar and shot the flames out in both directions. I felt much more calm and relaxed after releasing my fury. Unfortunately this was a really long tunnel and there was another wave of spiders coming. I looked down at Claire to see how she was doing. She was more awake now and she took a drink of what looked like a healing potion. Her cuts started to heal and she sat up. She wasn't capable of standing anymore though, so I still had to fight alone.

      I suddenly remembered Neji from Naruto using the 16 triagrams 128 palm thing on over a hundred spiders. I decided to mimic this with my fire element. I charged fire magic into my hands and got into the stance. All of the spiders started swarming in towards me. I rappidly hit all of them with my fire hands while circling around Claire. My main goal until we got out of the tunnel was to protect her. A bunch of them then jumped at me from all angles. I spun around and created a wave of fire in all directions to kill them. After all of this the train finally exited the tunnel. After getting a good distance away from the tunnel, Chris stopped the train.

      I carried Claire on my back and climbed down the ladder. I walked to the front of the train to see what all of this trouble was worth. In the distance from the mountain I could see a bunch of floating islands. They were hidden in the clouds and had a bunch of dragons flying around them. I got too excited after this and woke up.


      Flying Over Stormreach

      A pretty short lucid dream (because I forgot most of it). I had just grown dragon wings and was flying above the ocean. I was flying towards Stormreach's harbor off in the distance. I flew over the city and was amazed by it. Some general guy then started yelling at me something about having to go one a mission with a bunch of other soldiers. I just ignored him and went looking for some friends to quest with instead. I flew over a gate and landed in a street. I saw a horse carriage running full speed down the street at some guy who wasn't paying attention. For some reason I recognized this guy as Colton/Coolb3rt. I jumped in and grabbed Colton. I used my shadow magic to turn both of us into shadows so that we would phase through the carriage. I know a lot more happened in this dream, but I just can't seem to remember.

      A Lucid Contract

      I was in a school like place called the "Lucid Academy". I most likely became lucid due to the name of the place. For the most part it looked like a normal highschool, but you would see kids practicing magic, summoning things, and flying all over the place. I was walking down the hall and talking to Chris about something before we bumped into some girl. She looked completely confused about everything that was happening.

      "Where am I? What's happening here?" She asked.
      "You're dreaming." I told her.
      "I am?"
      "This is the Lucid Academy." Chris told her.
      "I don't want to lucid dream!" She yelled.
      "What? Why wouldn't you want to lucid dream?" Chris asked.
      "Because it's scary!" She said.
      "Okay, let's get this straight. In a lucid dream you can do ANYTHING you want!" I said.
      "Yeah, it's really fun." Chris said.

      Chris then summoned a large piece of paper. He mentioned something about signing a "lucid contract" and training the girl. Oddly he wasn't going to sign it, but wanted me and the girl to sign it. He handed me the blank paper and a marker to sign. I handed it back to Chris and he examined it as if he was checking to see if it was legitimate. I watched the girl write her name on it. It was hard for me to read, but I think it was either Carly or Molly written on it. She handed it back to Chris and he examined it again.

      "Alright, it's official! You will make her become lucid every night from now on." Chris said.
      "Wait what?" I asked confused.
      "Oh you didn't know?" Chris asked me.
      There was a long pause before I asked the girl, "So are you lucid yet?"

      She just sat there motionless wiith a blank expressionless stare. I waved my hand in front of her face to try to get her attention. With no response I could only assume she woke up or something.

      "I don't do that everytime I wake up do I?" I asked Chris.

      He laughed, but didn't give me a clear response. I spent the last minute of the dream trying to get the girl's attention.
