      Training Fury Mode

      The earliest thing I can remember is walking around an old tomb with Chris. I really don't know what it was. I was inside a man made tunnel with stone walls. I could tell it was made by an ancient civilization because there were hieroglyphics on pretty much everything. Judging by the different shapes and sizes of the stone ruins, I made an assumption that there used to be a city in the tunnel. I tripped over a large stone platform as I was walking through the rubble and hurt my leg.

      "What are we even doing here?" I asked Chris.
      "These are the Dreamer Base ruins. The tower should be somewhere nearby." He said.

      I then remembered that Chris had told me something similar before. We were looking for something that would be inside an ancient tower.
      I think I became lucid around this point from hearing "Dreamer Base". It must have triggered me to think about lucid dreaming. I got up off the ground and felt really excited about finding this mystery item. Then a giant green troll monster thing crashed through the wall. Chris pulled out his bow and started shooting at the troll. The arrows were about as effective as tooth picks. For some reason I felt like I was too weak to be able to fight this thing. I decided it would be best to run away from this thing.

      It picked up a large brick and threw it towards Chris. I grabbed Chris, opened up a a portal to the void, and jumped in before the brick could hit him. I quickly opened a portal to somewhere near the ruins below us before the troll get in. We both fell through the portal, and as usual I landed on my face. When I got up and looked around, I was in a forest now. Right next to me was Chris and a large stone tower. I knew that whatever I was looking for would be at the top of the tower.

      I ran through the entrance and started running up the spiral staircase. Chris followed right behind me. When I reached the top of the stairs, there was a little door on the ceiling. I pushed it open and we climbed onto the roof. The view from up there was pretty amazing. There was a pedestal resting on the center of the roof. I kind of just took a guess on what I needed to do. I pulled a red crystal out of my backpack and placed it on the pedestal. It glowed brightly for a moment and then stopped. Suddenly my energy sense activated and I felt more than just Chris's energy behind me.

      I turned around and jumped back, expecting to have to fight something. A large red dragon landed next to Chris and stared at me. I relaxed and dropped my fighting stance because he didn't feel dangerous. He spoke to me, but I can't remember what exactly we talked about at first. I do remember the last half of the conversation though.

      "I am here to train you." The dragon said.
      "Sorry, but I already know how to use my fire element." I said.
      "No, I'm going to teach you about the 'fury mode', as you like to call it."
      "Hey! I got an idea! Let's call it the Woosh! Because of the sound it makes when you release it?" Chris said.

      Chris left me no choice but to facepalm after hearing that statement. Even the dragon gave Chris a strange look.

      "Okay, never mind." Chris said.
      "I thought you could only breathe fire." I said to the dragon.
      "Yes, but I know how to gather fury energy to make it more powerful." He said.

      The dragon stepped back a few feet, preparing to demonstrate. He became very focused and a red energy started to form around him. He focused the energy to his foot and then stamped his foot down on the ground. Hundreds of large and powerful fireballs rose up out of the floor and flew into the sky. The exploded and lit the sky up with a bright red light. After seeing that, it was obvious that he knew a lot about this technique. I was so amazed and ready to learn from him at that point. I stepped back to the other side of the tower and prepared for my training.

      "Think of something that angers you while gathering fury energy." The dragon said.

      He didn't speak to anymore, but it sort of felt like he was still guiding me through it passively. I thought of something that made me angry, but I can't remember what it was. The idea was to gather energy from my emotions to make myself more powerful. I focused on making my energy spike while trying to become a little angry. My body started glowing with a purple energy that felt warm. I then transformed into my stage 1 dragon form, which is the black dragon I usually transform into. I powered the energy up some more and it grew into a full aura around me. At this point I was trying reach a stage where my fury mode would become more powerful. When my energy spiked again I transformed into my stage 2 dragon form, which is a more powerful white dragon. The aura didn't grow any larger, but it definitely felt far more intense. Eventually I pushed on through to my final stage 3 dragon form, which is a purple dragon. Once again, the fury energy greatly increased in power and intensity.

      "Good job. Try to calm down without losing your energy now." He said.

      I put my arms down and allowed all of the muscles in my body to relax. I allowed my mind to calm down while at the same time focusing on the energy around me. When I did this, the fury energy hardly lost power and was still flowing through me. I was able to maintain this energy now without my mind filled with anger. It felt pretty amazing having so much power. I walked over to Chris to show him. He waved his hand through the aura and thought it was pretty cool. As we were playing with the aura, I sensed the energies of a group of below in the forest. The three of us walked over to the edge of the tower to take a look.

      When I looked down I saw a group of 10 or more men in red robes. From that it became obvious that they were Draflam soldiers. I wasn't sure why they were coming towards the tower though. I think it may have been because they don't like me and want me dead.

      "How would you like to use those Draflams as target practice?" The dragon said smiling.
      "Sounds like a good idea to me." I said
      "This is going to be fun to watch!" Chris said.

      I jumped over the tower wall and spread out my wings. I flew down towards the group of Draflams and prepared for a fight. I breathed out that purple energy on a couple of them like my fire breath. They were covered with a purple fire and were soon vaporized. Most of them quickly ran towards the tower, but one tried running away. I grabbed the fleeing Draflam and flew him right into the tower wall. I then flew right back towards the entrance and fired out a ball of fury energy in front of it. A few Draflams got inside the tower, but I blasted away the rest of them. I flew through a hole in the tower and landed on the staircase in front of them. They shot fireballs at me, but I created a shield around me out of fury energy. I then blasted out a wave of energy in front of me and killed the last of the soldiers.

      I flew back up to the top of the tower. I deactivated my fury mode and walked over to Chris and the dragon. The congratulated me for completing my training. I think I woke up after this point though.


      Taking Out the Trash

      This was a very short dream. My mother told me to take a bag of garbage out to the field to burn it. So I carried the bag out to the field. I pulled out a lighter to burn the trash, but it wasn't working. I became lucid at this point for some reason. Probably because being in a field is somewhat of a common dream sign for me. I decided the lighter was useless so I just tossed it over my shoulder. I held my hand out towards the garbage and lit in on fire. Magic makes everything so much easier. I think I was hit by a random car shortly after this. Why must my dreams end in stupid ways like that?

    2. The King Black Dragon (March 2, 2012)

      DreamLucidAwake

      The King Black Dragon

      The dream started out with me and my family at my grandmother's house. It was night and we were just sitting around watching tv. I think it might have been something like NCIS on tv. I didn't pay much attention to the tv because something didn't feel right. It felt like there was something in the living room spying on us. My energy sense sort of activated on its own and I used it to try to find this something. Even though I wasn't lucid, I was playing things out as if I was. I at least had enough awareness to know I was dragonborn. I couldn't see it, but I could sense the energy to move towards the bedroom.

      I walked away from the living room and into one of the bedrooms. I couldn't really pinpoint the location of the energy or what was creating it. The energy felt evil and I thought it wanted to kill someone. After judging the amount of energy it was giving off, I realized it was a lot more powerful than me. Knowing that it was more powerful than a dragonborn shocked me a little. I threw the blankets off the bed because I thought this thing was hiding under it. There was nothing there however. I started to become a little afraid of the situation. Something extremely powerful was around here, I had no idea what it was, I couldn't see it, and I had no idea if it was after me or my family. My mother saw that I was acting strange and came into the room.

      "What's wrong?" She said while picking the blanket back off the floor.
      "There's an alien presence here and it's more powerful than a dragonborn." I said.
      "What's its energy level?" She asked.
      "It's like over 100,000 and I can't even find its exact location!" I said frustrated.

      I kicked the bed out of frustration. The energy level spiked to what I thought was around 150,000. I could sense it crawl out from under the bed in a panic. Right at that moment I got an idea and knew I had an opportunity to use it. I focused on my eyes to give myself the dragon sight ability as the thing brushed by me. I was hoping that dragon sight would be powerful enough to see something seemingly invisible. I looked towards the energy intensely as it ran out the door. As it ran towards the kitchen I could see a faint blurry outline of this thing. I saw what looked like a dragon with glowing red eyes. The image disappeared when it stopped moving and its energy went back down.

      I kept my eyes fixed on the spot the dragon stopped at and ran into the kitchen. I stopped in front of this spot and I could just barely hear breathing in front of me. I reached out my hand to touch it. I jerked my hand back in pain. It must have clawed me becuase there was a cut in my hand. Right when I pulled back I heard the dragon speak to me.

      "Fool, you've fallen right into my trap." He said.

      A black hole suddenly opened up between us and I was sucked in. I came back out of it a second later and hit the ground face first. I had been teleported next to a lake in the middle of a forest. It was daytime now. When I got off the ground I felt the dragon's energy somewhere above me.

      "I'll be waiting..." He said before flying off.

      I sensed the energy fly off towards a big mountain off in the distance. I started questioning what the hell just happened. About 5 minutes ago I was relaxing on the couch and watching tv. Now I'm sensing energies, using dragon sight, and talking to dragons.
      Being teleported was the thing that finally convinced me that I was dreaming.

      "I should have realized that from the start." I said to myself.

      Before I could even come up with a plan, I felt something come at me from behind. It tried to throw a punch at me, but I jumped up, spun around, and kicked it in the face. It was some big muscular guy. He looked as if he was built for fighting. I kicked him hard enough to make him slide back into a tree.

      "Hello." I said.
      "Lucky shot. I'll make sure it doesn't happen again." He said wiping blood from his mouth.
      "What exactly do you want?" I asked him.
      "I was given orders to stop you from passing."

      We both got in our fighting stances and stared at each other. I quickly made a move to try and morph into a dragon and he dashed towards me. He appeared in front of me in just a second and I had just barely enough time to grow wings. He punched me in the face and I went flying. He punched me so hard that I landed on the lake and started skidding across the surface on my back. I did a back flip and flapped my wings to stabilize myself. I then flew straight back towards the man.

      I threw a punch at him, but he blocked it with his arm and brought me to a dead stop. I hovered a little above the ground to meet his hieght and fought him that way. He threw a punch and I kicked it away. I tried punching him, but he blocked it with his other arm. He aimed a kick at my stomach and I blocked it with my own kick. I threw a punch towards his face, which he blocked with both arms. I then kicked him in the chest and he slid back. He dashed back towards me and I grabbed him. I flew high into the air with him. I dived back towards the ground with him as fast as I could. When we got near the ground, I let go, and kicked him as hard as I could in the stomach. He hit the ground hard enough to make it crack at least.

      I assumed he was knocked out, so I decided to continue with my adventure. I flew in the direction that I thought the dragon had flown. The dream created a time illusion that made me think I had been flying for a while. I had only been flying for about 30 seconds before sunset turned to night. I was flying over a city between the lake and the mountains. My wings were feeling tired, so I landed on the roof of an apartment building to rest.

      This next part is fragmented. A martial artist, who reminded me of Jackie Chan, appeared behind me and kicked me in the back. I didn't bother saying anything to him, because I knew it would be the same as the last guy. We punched and kicked at each other for a while. I do remember that I defeated him by kicking him off the building.

      I decided I would get going again before some other guy showed up. I jumped off of a building and started flying towards the mountain again. The dream skipped here and I was now standing in front of a cave at the base of the mountain. I had a feeling the cave was the way I needed to go, so I ran inside. It was dark at first, but I eventually came to a room that was lit up by an orange light. The light was coming from the magma flowing through the cracks in ground. There were a bunch of Aranians in the room fighting monsters. These monsters were moss and plant covered boulders that were magically connected together. Kind of like how sticks connect together to make a stickman.

      I saw Chris standing on top of a tall boulder with a bow. He was helping the Aranians by shooting arrows at the monsters. The boulder that he was standing on then rose up out of the ground. He was actually standing on one of those guys. Chris fell off of the monster as it stood up. I picked up a sword that an Aranian soldier had dropped on the ground and ran towards Crhis. The monster lifted its arms and tried to punch Chris. I flew between them and blocked its arm with my sword. I then thrusted my sword into its grassy stomach. It stumbled back a few feat before an Aranian jumped in and started fighting it.

      "Hi Chris." I said.
      "Thanks for that. Earth guardians are tough." He said.
      "Why are the Aranians here?"
      "We got reinforcements to make your job easier. Just follow me now."

      Chris picked his bow up off the ground and started running towards another opening on the other side of the cave and I followed him. In front of the opening was a tunnel with a river of lava flowing below. Chris lept off of the edge and landed on a rock just above the lava. He then jumped to a far away stalagmite and lept off of it to another rock. He was a lot more agile than I thought. I simply jumped off the edge and started flying above the lava. The river flowed down several different tunnels, but Chris was able to guide me in the right direction. The flight was for only about 20 seconds before we came into a larger room with an elevated circular platform in the center. Chris stopped on a small piece of land below the platform and I landed next to him.

      "The king black dragon is in the arena just above us." Chris whispered.
      "And I have to fight him?" I asked.
      "Don't worry, I've got your back. Claire is up there fighting right now."
      "Alright. Good luck Chris."

      I flew up to the arena as Chris climbed to the top of a stone pillar. I saw a very large black dragon and Claire fighting each other. Claire was trying to fight the king black dragon with just a sword and shield. He turned around and hit Claire with his tail, almost knocking her into the lava. I flew in front of the dragon and met him eye to eye.

      "I've been expecting you." He said.
      "I figured you were." I said
      "You have no idea how long I've waited for this moment..."

      He then started shooting waves of fire across the ground and fireballs in the air. Claire tried blocking the fire with her shield as I just barely dodged fireballs. Chris shot a few arrows at the dragon to distract him. Claire looked hurt, so I hurled a glowing disc at her that release healing magic. When the dragon became annoyed with Chris, he knocked down the pillar with his tail. Chris still managed to leap to another one though.

      The dragon used the same fire attack from before again. This time though, I flew above the fireballs and shot him with as much ice magic as I could. The dragon got mad at me and swatted me to the floor. I got back up right away and saw flames start to form around him. I could tell that he was about to use a very powerful attack. He unleashed a wave of fire that stretched across the entire room. I grabbed Claire and shielded us both with my wings and a some ice magic.

      Me and Claire seemed exhausted by this point. He looked like he was about to charge up that same move again. I got an idea and decided I would try something new. I flew up into the air and shot out over 20 balls of light from each side of me. I controlled their movements with my hands like guided missles. For some reason I call them light arrows. I motioned a few of these arrows to strike the king's belly. They exploded in a blast of light and knocked him into the air. I then blasted him from all directions with this spell while summoning more arrows. I kept this up for about 10 seconds before I felt like it was enough. When the light finally faded away he fell down to the ground and collapsed. He was still alive at this point, but badly injured. He summoned a black hole above his head and it sucked him in. I could have jumped in the black hole to chase after him, but I really didn't want to.

      I looked around to see where Chris and Claire were. I saw Chris standing on a pillar and he jumped off of it onto the arena. I didn't have to search for Claire because she had already appeared next to me. Behind where the king black dragon was previously standing, we found a treasure chest. Of course, we all rushed over to it and opened it up. Inside the chest was a bunch of gold and crystals of all kinds. I think seeing the treasure made me a little too happy though and I woke up.

    3. Missing Baby (March 1, 2012)

      DreamLucidAwake

      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.
    4. Possessed, Underwater Combat (February 29, 2012)

      by , 03-08-2012 at 05:03 PM (Chronicles of Ethos)
      DreamLucidAwake

      Possessed

      This dream is a little fragmented at the beginning. I was lucid and fighting Micheal Myers in a dark place. I probably became lucid because Micheal Myers has been a dream sign for many years. I think I was fighting with him in an old abandoned house in the middle of the night. I can only remember the final moments of the fight. Micheal grabbed by throat and lifted me up into the air. He held me against the wall and tried to strangle me. I used the dragon morph to transform my foot. I swiped him in the eye with my claws and he stumbled back. I clenched my hands together and hit him hard in the face while he was still dazed. He fell to the ground and was still covering his face from the pain. I pulled out my sword and stabbed it through his chest. I then ended it by lighting him on fire with a fireball. His body evaporated into sparks and I saw his angry spirit fly away.

      The next thing I know, I'm standing on the side walk of a small neighborhood in the middle of the day. For some reason, I was now a little girl of about 5 years old. There were 2 women talking to each other about something next to a baby carriage. I then started to hear a creepy whispering voice in my head.

      "Kill... Kill them..." It said.
      "What? No!" I said in my mind.
      "Do it... Do my evil work for me.... Let me live on inside of you!" The voice shouted.

      I realized that this was Micheal Myers speaking to me. Suddenly my body and mind became possessed. I walked in a zombie like state towards a kitchen knife lying on the sidewalk. I picked up the knife and walked towards the baby carriage. When I lifted my arm to stab the baby, I regained control of myself again.

      "What the hell? I'm not going to kill a baby!" I said in my mind.
      "Do it!" He shouted.
      "You can't make me!" I yelled back.
      "You will obey me." He said.

      I lost control of my body and lifted the knife again. I thrusted the knife down towards the baby. In a fit of rage, I regained control of my left arm and swiped it in front of the knife at the last second. I managed to stop myself from killing the baby by stabbing myself in the arm. After Micheal lost control over me, I pulled the knife back out of my arm and dropped it. The two women then finally took notice to me and the baby. We were safe now that people were aware of the weird stuff happening. The last thing I remember of this dream is Micheal saying goodbye.

      "You bastard..." Micheal said before disappearing from my mind.


      Underwater Combat

      I'm not 100% sure, but I think I was Claire in this dream. I was in some school building that reminded me a lot of the Lucid Academy. I was following a group of classmates to an indoor pool. On the way there, someone shared half of a cookie with me for reasons I can't remember. It was unbelievably delicious. When we walked into the pool area, everyone excpet me rushed in and jumped in the water. I looked around the room and saw a guy standing against the wall with a large box. Inside the box was powdered donuts for sale. I pulled a small pouch of gold coins out of my pocket and bought the whole box from him. I ate a few donuts and then gave the box to some other guy to "bank" them. Things are a little fragmented from this point until the end of the dream.

      I looked at the pool again and saw that everyone disappeared. I then saw a few people come back to the surface for breath and quickly dive back down. There was something down there and I was curious to see what it was. I saw a hole in the floor next to the pool filled with water and a ladder. For some reason I felt like going down that way. I jumped into the water and started to sink.
      I became lucid after jumping into the water because it didn't feel right. The water just felt like air. While I was underwater I thought I had to hold my breath even though I was still passively breathing.

      As I floated down to the bottom, I finally noticed what was so interesting under the water. I was now floating in the sky above a small village. I could see a bunch of people down there playing around with dream control. They were doing things like flying, super speed, shooting fire, summoning, and a bunch of other things. I can't remember what exactly happened when I reached the bottom, but I know some sort of free for all lucid battle started.

      I think I was hiding behind a small shack where a man was trying to sell apples for the first half of the battle. I was too confused about what was happening to get involved. I then remembered that I needed to breathe, so I flew up to towards the surface. This one guy who was dominating the competition noticed me as I flew up. He flew at me from below on his black dragon. I could sense him and the dragon coming towards me, so I dodged to the left. He glared at me as he flew by, which made me think he was taking the game a little too seriously. The dragon then swung its claws at me as I pulled out my sword. It tried to swipe me a few times, but I deflected its claws with my sword. They decided to fly away from me when I got to the surface.

      At the surface I saw Chris standing next to the hole. I can't remember what was said, but it was something about helping me out in the fight. He jumped into the water with me and we dived back down to the bottom. The first thing Chris did was charge at some guy who had transformed into an anthropomorphic tiger. I saw a cloud in the sky that resembled a dragon. That reminded me of my ability to summon dragons.

      "Summon dragon!" I shouted.

      A dark blue dragon wearing armor came out from behind the cloud. I jumped onto its back as it flew past me. I saw some people standing on a few clouds, shooting fire, lightning, and other spells at the people below. I flew the dragon over the clouds so it could attack. The dragon breathed a blue fire on all of them and knocked them out of the game. I then remembered that I needed more air, so I jumped off the dragon and flew back to the surface.

      When I descended back down to the village, I saw Chris standing on top of the apple shack. He was shooting at people with a bow and arrows. He must have been having fun because he was laughing the whole time. Then someone came out from behind a house and shot a hundred of these tiny energy balls at Chris. Chris kind of passed out from that and just layed on top of the apple shack. I climbed on top of the apple shack, grabbed Chris, and started flying towards those clouds again. The man tried shooting that energy pellet spell again, but my dragon flew between us to protect me. When I reached the cloud, I layed Chris down on it and got on my stomach to try hiding. The sound of an energy blast and seeing pellets fly by told me that he found me anyways.

      I charged ice magic in the palm of my hand, rolled over, and started shooting bursts of ice magic at him. He took cover behind a stack of a crates. He then shot his energy pellets at me and I took cover behind the cloud, which was surprisingly protective. We continued this for a while and got no where. Eventually I decided to just shoot at him the second he comes back out from behind the crates. He didn't expect that and was soon frozen solid. I stood up and took a good look at the village. It seemed like me and Chris were the only ones left. Then of course, that one guy and his black dragon appeared in front of me.

      I noticed that Chris was still holding his bow, so I took that to help me in the fight. The dragon was trying to charge a ball of shadow fire. I pulled the bow string back, created a fireball in the shape of an arrow, and shot it at the dragon. The fire arrow exploded when it hit the dragon and disrupted its spell. I did this a few more times to try and weaken the dragon. My dragon then suddenly flew up from below and finished them off with its blue fire breath. It looked as if we had won the battle. Chris started to wake up a little. I then remembered that we both had been underwater for a while and needed air. I picked him up and swam to the surface. I woke up when I reached the surface this time though.

    5. Short Lucid Dream, Failed DEILD Attempt (February 28, 2012)

      DreamLucidAwake

      Short Lucid Dream

      I was driving a car through the mountains of West Virginia. There's not really much to say about the drive other than the scenery was beautiful. I became lucid during the drive when I noticed that I was sitting on the right side of the car. The driver's seat is supposed to be on the left. As I was thinking about all the things I could do now that I was lucid, I drove by a massive car wreck. There were over 20 cars blocking the road on the left. I decided to get out of the car so I could check it out. For some reason I felt like an alien was responsible for it, and I wanted to have an encounter with the alien. Right when I started walking towards the cars, my vision started blurring. I realized that I had forgotten to stabilize and panicked. I tried rubbing my hands together, hitting the ground, and even licking the road. It slowed down the wake up process, but it wasn't going to improve anything. I then decided to just lay back and hope for a DEILD attempt.

      Failed DEILD Attempt

      When I woke up, I only moved around a little bit before remembering to DEILD. I layed still and went into a sleep paralysis. I could feel my body locking up and hear a loud static sound. My vision then looked fuzzy as if the tv was on the wrong channel. I then started to wonder what would happen if I tried using Daydream Awareness during this. I started daydreaming about my room for some reason. It soon felt like I was being sucked into the picture of my daydream.

      Eventually the feeling of my body being squeezed to death was a little much for me. I decided to cancel the attempt and break out of it. I had apparently made it into a dream, but I never realized it. I didn't think I was dreaming because I had broken out of sleep paralysis and everything looked so real. As I'm thinking about my failed attempt and what went wrong, a man runs into my room with my cat. He threw that cat onto my feet and the cat started biting and clawing my foot. I started flailing around and tried to kick him off. The last thing I remember of this dream is throwing him off my foot and into a wall.

    6. Lucid Fragment, Tooth Ache, Rope Swinging, Improved Teleportation, In a Painting (February 16, 2012)

      DreamLucidAwake

      I used my daydream awareness technique again before bed. I didn't feel like daydreaming about anything in particular. I just wanted to focus on the idea of becoming lucid.

      Lucid Fragment

      I was in Loudonville standing behind my grandmother's house. I'm not sure but I think I was Claire or seeing things through her eyes in this dream. I was trying to hide from an army of little kids who wanted to eat me. They found me and they charged at me. I tried shooting them with an LMG I had been carrying, but it was out of ammo. So I picked up a gold sledge hammer leaning against the house. I swung it around in a circle hitting all of the kids around me. It was quite comical until I woke up.

      Tooth Ache

      This dream started out with me in my grandmother's house (Mansfield). It was a flase awakening and I was lying in the bedroom. I got up and put my clothes on for the day. I walked towards the kitchen to get some breakfast. I got a really strange feeling in my one tooth though as I walked to the kitchen. It then started hurting really bad. I poked it and felt it with my tounge. It hurt even more and tasted like bood, so I figured it was about to fall out. I started panicking because I don't think you're supposed to lose adult teeth. I poked at it with my finger and really knocked it lose. My mouth suddenly started to fill with blood. I ran into the bathroom and spit it out into the toilet. I started questioning why I had a bad tooth and how I could fix it. I became lucid after remembering that I had a similar dream a few days ago.

      I still wasn't sure how I was going to fix my tooth. After spitting more blood out I decided to call out to my sister for help.

      "Miki...Miki...Miki..." I moaned holding my head over the toilet.

      I didn't get any response from her. It seemed like she just decided to leave. So I decided to rely on a dream guide.

      "Claire!" I shouted to bring her to me.
      "What?" She said walking into the bathroom.
      I turned around to face her and said, "Look at this tooth ache!"
      "So?" She said thinking it was normal.
      I then spat out more blood onto the floor and yelled, "This isn't normal! Fix it!"
      "Alright, follow me." She said.

      I followed her outside of the house. Even though I had just woken up, it was oddly night time. We walked across the street into a field. We were walking towards a huge statue. I think it was the head of the Statue of Liberty half burried in the ground. I then stopped walking and thought about my real life tooth. I thought the tooth pain in my dream could be related to my real life tooth. If so then it would be a good idea to wake up and check on it. I grabbed the fabric of my dream with my hand (if that makes sense) and started pulling on it. I pulled and twisted it until it ripped open. I let myself fall into the void and woke up.


      When I woke up my tooth was completely fine. That made me a little upset that I woke up for no reason. I got up to get a class of water and then sat there for a while using my daydream technique.

      Rope Swinging

      Kind of forgot some of this dream because I put off writing it. I was standing on a platform built around the top of a very tall tree. I tried to see how far from the bottom I was, but there was only a thick fog below me. I was standing there with my cat. My cat looked as if he was about to jump off of the platform.

      "No kitty! No kitty! No kitty!" I yelled.

      He jumped off and I looked down to see had jumped to another platform. As high as it was, it looked like it should have killed him.
      I became lucid after thinking about how the fall should have killed him. I saw ropes hanging from the tree branches and decided to play with those. I ran foward, grabbed a rope, and swung towards another platform. To reach the next platform I had to curve around the tree with the rope. Oddly when I did this I had a quick gust of hot air blow at me for a few seconds. After I landed on the next platform there were no others to swing to. I ran and swung on the last rope anways. After I let go of the rope I fell far through the fog until I hit the ground. I did a roll when I landed so I wouldn't break my legs or anything. More happened after this, but I forgot it.

      Improved Teleportation

      I can't remember the moment I became lucid. I was standing in my grandmother's living room (Mansfield) in the middle of the night. Oddly everyone us up and walking around even though it was the middle of the night. I decided I would try teleporting somewhere. I don't like walking around the dream world at night or places that seem very normal to me. I had a little bit of a new idea on how I would teleport this time.

      I swiped my hand down to create a rift in the wall above the couch. I jumped off the couch and dived into the portal. I fell and crashed into the void like I was expecting. Now that I was in the void and the previous dream scene was erased, it would be easier for me to teleport to a new one. I swung my arms out in a tearing motion to rip a hole in the void while thinking of a place full of snow. A rift opened up and I could see a bunch of snow through it. I stepped through the portal and I was in the middle of a forest covered in snow and ice. I also saw Chris just standing there watching the snow. The place was amazing, but it felt too cold there and I wanted to leave. I waved goodbye to Chris and walked back through the portal into the void.

      I did the same thing as before when I was in the void, except I thought about the summer and the beach. I saw sand, water, and the sun materialize as I opened the portal. When the image was complete I walked through the portal. Unfortunately the exit portal was a little high up in the air and I fell out of it. I hit the ground pretty hard, but I at least landed on sand. After groaning in pain and complaining to myself I got up and looked at my surroundings. I was on a beautiful island with a bunch of trees and flowers behind me. I looked back to the beach and saw someone just lying there on the beach. As I walked towards her I realized she was Claire. I wanted to ask her a few questions, but she was sleeping. I poked her belly a few times to try to wake here up. I then decided that waking her up would be like waking an angry bear. I sat next to her and waited for her to wake up, but she never did. I looked around a little bit and admired this new world. One odd thing I saw though was the Statue of Liberty's head burried in the ground again. The dream faded away as I waited.


      In a Painting

      It was a false awakening and I was actually in my own room for once. I was packing my bags for yet another road trip. As I was packing I saw a picture on my wall. It was a picture of the Statue of Liberty. I walked over to it and stared at it for a moment. I don't have a picture of the Statue of Liberty on my wall. I became lucid after realizing that the statue was in the previous dreams. It meant that this one was likely a dream too.

      For some reason I felt like I should go into the painting. I pushed my hand through the picture. It looked and felt like I had stuck my hand into a bucket of water. After pushing my whole arm into it, I was sucked into the painting. Next thing I know, I'm falling high above the buildings of New York City. I then felt an energy above me and turned towards the sky. Two seperate portals had opened in the sky. Out of one fell Chris, and out of the other fell Claire.

      "What the hell are you guys doing?!" I asked them.
      "Trying to save you!" Chris said.
      "You're doing a pretty bad job at it!" I yelled at him.
      "There wasn't much time to plan!" he yelled back.
      "Shut up and morph into a dragon already!" Claire yelled.

      I transformed into a full dragon real easy and spread out my wings. Claire grabbed onto my back and I grabbed Chris with my four legs. I was about to crash into a skyscraper, but Claire grabbed my horns and steered me to the right. I was about to hit another building, so she steered me to the left just barely missing two buildings. I nearly lost my grip of Chris and was barely holding onto him anymore.

      "You guys are too heavy" I yelled.

      Claire got mad at me and purposely steered me into the side of a building. That was a painful hit on the head.

      I growled at her and asked, "What the hell was that for?"
      "Watch what you say." Claire said.
      "This too much weight for me to carry!" I yelled back.
      "Maybe you just need to build some muscle" She said.
      "Look out!" Chris yelled.

      I looked back in front of me and saw the Statue of Liberty. I crashed into the crown thingy on it and gripped it with my claws. I grabbed Chris with my tail and and Claire held onto my shoulders. After some struggling I finally pulled all of us up. All of that craziness destabilized my dream and I woke up like 5 seconds later.

    7. A Sad Premonition (February 10, 2012)

      DreamLucidAwake

      A Sad Premonition

      A short lucid dream that I believe predicted the following day's events. I was in the nursing home again visiting my grandmother. When I walked in I saw an hourglass sitting on the nightstand next to my grandmother's bed. There was a digital clock built into it and the time on it was around 12pm. The clock on the hourglass was telling the current time though, but the was stating the time that she would die. I looked at the clock on the other side of the room and it read 11:58am. This meant she only had a few more minutes left to live. I then heard someone mention how sad it was that my grandmother's friend wouldn't be able to get there soon enough to see her alive.

      I didn't want that situation to make things worse than they already were. I placed one hand on my grandmother and the other on the hourglass. Using a combination of healing magic and time control I was able change her time of death to 3:45pm. The dream time then skipped here to about a couple hours later or so. At this point I decided to walk out into the hall where it was a little less crowded. When I walked out I saw an older looking woman walk down the hall to my grandmother's room. I felt really happy because I knew this was her friend and she was here with a lot of time to spare. When she entered the room everyone's faces lit up.

      Suddenly I felt Claire's presence behind me. I thought, "Oh crap, does she want to do to me?". I turned around and she gave me a big hug. That really surprised me because she's always mean to me. It was nice though. I guess I needed a hug in a dream like that.


      My grandmother died the following day. She died at 3:45pm. I can't remember when it was, but my grandmother's friend finally arrived at the nursing home sometime after 2pm I think.
