      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.

      DreamLucidAwake

      Uncontrollable Fury

      I don't really remember the beginning of this dream. I do remember seeing a man standing inside a pond with a baby. Something about it didn't seem right, so I started walking over to the pond. I then saw him hold the baby under the water trying to drown it. I ran into the pond as fast as I could and punched the guy in the face. I brought the baby back to the surface and somehow got it to breathe again.

      "What the hell were you trying to do???" I asked the man.
      "That is the child of the enemy. He should be killed!" The man said.
      "That's not his fault!" I exclaimed
      "He'll grow up to be a monster. Give him to me." He demanded.
      "No." I told him.

      He was about to take the baby from me by force, but I just punched him in the face again. I kind of knocked him out and left him floating on the water. I walked over to a house and left the child on a rocking chair. I then heard the sound of an animal crying in pain followed by laughter. That combination did not sound one bit right. I followed the sounds to back of the house. On the other side of the house I saw 3 men surrounding a dog. The dog was covered in cuts and bruises and it looked like it hadn't eaten in days. Two of the men were holding down the dog and beating it while the other guy was taking pictures of them.

      It completely sickened me to watch this and my anger started rising quickly.
      I somehow becaame lucid at this moment and decided I would go over there and beat some sense into those guys. Before I could even take my first step towards them the dog they were beating had died. They kicked it a few more times before tossing it to the side. I then saw them bring my dog out of the house and hold him down. One of them pulled out a pair of scissors and started cutting my dog's nose up. This pushed my anger far beyond its limits.

      I transformed into a dragon and started growling. I actually found this scary because I completely stopped acting human. When the man was about to stick the scissors in my dog's eye I let out my most powerful draconic roar. It knocked them all to the ground and used time control to close the distance before they could get back up. The one with the camera did man age to get back up though and he attempted to run into the woods. He only made a few steps before I stabbed my claws right into his back. I used my earth element to smash him into the ground with as much force as powerful. I then started biting and clawing at him.

      As I was doing this, the man with the scissors tried to sneak up from behind me and stab me. I saw this coming with my danger sense though and cut the man's stomach with my tail blade. When I turned to face him he tried to stab me again. I shoved my claws straight through his arm and he dropped his scissors in pain. I forced him to the ground with my claws still in his arm. I then started biting and pulling at his arm until it was completely ripped off. I finished him off by slashing my claws through his throat.

      The last man pulled out a hand gun and shot me in the side. It knocked me to the ground and hurt like hell, but I didn't care at all. I got right back up and slowly started walking towards him. He tried firing another shot, but this time a purple spark appeared a few inches in front of me. The bullet seemed to have bounced off of this energy. He tried firing a few more shots at me, but the same thing happened whenever a bullet got near. I soon cornered the man against the house and started growling again. He stumbled to the ground and I pierced his chest with my claws to be sure he wouldn't crawl away. I then looked directly into his eyes and released a red energy (fear) into his mind. He started screaming in fear until he passed out a few seconds later. I ended it when I jumped up into the air and smashed his head with a tail strike.

      I was now in some sort of killing frenzy. I was looking all around me for anything to kill. I started roaring and took out many trees with my draconic roar. It wasn't until I saw my dog lying on the ground in pain that I finally calmed down. I came back into control of myself and undid my dragon form. I walked over to my dog and used my healing magic on him before waking up.


      When I woke up, I still had much anger inside me. So much in fact, that I had to punch my wall. My hand still hurts...

    3. Objective C, Failed Portal, Winter Oasis (February 4, 2012)

      DreamLucidAwake

      Objective C

      I remember that I daydreamed about MAG before I went to bed last night. I kept daydreaming about different ways I could try to place explosives at objective C without S.V.E.R. beating the crap out of me.

      I don't know how or when I became lucid in this dream. I jumped out of the plane as it flew over the Syr Darya Uplink. My parachute quickly deployed and I started to float down towards the bottom. Enemy snipers were starting to shoot at me, so I morphed my human hands into dragon hands and cut off the parachute early. I then grew dragon wings so I could land on the ground softly. I pulled out my 12 gauge shotgun and started to run towards objective C.

      I encountered a few enemies on the way, but I just shot them and moved on. I decided to enter the train station thing through the side entrance on the left. While S.V.E.R. was distracted with my guys at the front entrance I threw 2 smoke grenades into objective C. I reloaded a few shells into my shotgun and ran towards the data center. One of my enemies noticed me and ran towards me in an attempt to stab me. I turned my whole body except my claws into a shadow and ran through him. My claws cut through him like butter and killed him.

      I then ran into the cloud of smoke where 3 S.V.E.R. guys were trying to defend the objective. I took them all down quickly with my claws when they weren't looking. As I started to place the explosives someone outside the data center fire a shots into me. I took cover behind a wall and noticed my health bar was at 30/120. Luckily it was so video game like that I barely felt pain. I could have just used my medical kit, but I felt like using my healing magic instead. I made my hand glow a bright light and placed it over my wounds until they glowed too. My wounds were partially healed and my health went back up to 75/120. I ran back over to the objective and deployed the charges. I then ran away out of the train station as fast as I could before it blew up. Unfortunately this meant game over which I guess also meant dream over.


      Failed Portal

      I was in my old room in Loudonville playing MAG on an old Playstation. I quickly got bored with that game and looked at a pile of games to see what else I had. On top was a Spyro game that had a picture of me in my white dragon form and my black dragon form. I was about to play it, but then I thought about the game for a moment.

      "Wait a minute... I don't have this game! Now that I think of it, none of these games even exist. Am I dreaming?" I thought outloud.


      After thinking it through I was pretty sure that I was dreaming. I did the nose reality check out of habit though. Luckily it did not fail on me this time and I had confirmed my lucidity. I ran out my bedroom door and instantly teleported to the top of the stairs. Why walk when you can blink? I walked into the kitchen and I remembered that it was important to stabilize. I started rubbing my hands together and then I licked the fridge. There were papers on the fridge though and I got a paper cut on my tounge.

      I was about to run outside, but I noticed it was night and I did not feel comfortable with that. The thought of teleporting somewhere then came to mind. I held my hand out and sliced through space and time with my hand. I created a pitch black rift, but I forgot to think of a place to go. After a minute the thought of teleporting to the beach came to mind. I felt uneasy about jumping into the portal because it didn't look like portals from the past. It looked too empty. I decided to take my chances anyways.

      "Take me to the beach!" I yelled out as I jumped in.

      There were so many things I did wrong. When I jumped in I was completely consumed by the void. I have no idea where that portal took me, but it felt like I was falling down the world's largest staircase. After a minute or so of torture I finally fell into a false awakening.


      It was the middle of the night and I was sleeping on my grandmother's couch. I walked over to the other couch and saw the elf sleeping where my sister should have been. This woke me up for some reason.

      Winter Oasis

      I daydreamed again and for some reason I was daydreaming about spiders for a minute at first. To avoid arachniphobic paranoia I quickly started daydreaming about winter snow before switching over to a summer beach. My dream surprisingly followed this order.

      The dream started off with a false awakening similar to the last. My sister was sitting on the couch screamin something about a spider. I forced myself to walk over and take a look. She pointed to a clock on the wall and inside it was a large white spider trying to get out. The spider then phased through the glass and jumped out at me. Next thing I knew I was floating inside the void. The old man was standing in front of me.

      "You have 2 choices. You can let the dream continue normally, or you can risk it and become lucid." He told me.


      I technically became lucid at this point, but I was still thinking about my choices. I knew by "risk" he meant the possibility of waking up too early. I was hesitated at first, but I decided to take the risk.

      "Okay, make me lucid." I told him.
      "So be it." He said.

      He then lifted his hand and a bright light emerged from it. The light soon grew and lit up the whole void until I was sucked into a new dreamscape. It looked pretty awesome and I think I need to learn to teleport like that now. I was now standing in the driveway of my old home in Loudonville. There was a very thick winter fog and it was very cold.

      "Jeez! It's freezing in here!" I said shivering.

      I started walking down the road and decided to look for a hot summer beach. Normally I like the cold, but it just didn't feel right in this dream. A car then came out of the fog towards me and I turned into a shadow so that it would phase through me. I could see the lights of more cars coming and I quickly grew dragon wings and flew above the road. That was way too close and completely uncalled for. I then wandered aimlessly in the fog for a minute before finally found the "beach". It was a sandy area not much bigger than a sand box. It had a palm tree, a watering hole, and a beach ball. When I stepped onto the sand I suddenly went from freezing to feeling the suns warmth.

      "I can't believe how warm it is here. It's completely different." I said.

      As I took a step some of the sand below me started to break away. I was about to fall into a pit before I morphed my hands into dragon hands. I then gripped the edge with my claws and struggled to pull myself back up.

      "You're not going to kill me that easily today!" I yelled out to my dream.

      I climbed back out of the pit and jumped into the watering hole. It was very relaxing and I sat there for a minute before noticing the fog had disappeared. A group of 5 or more girls in swimsuits walked by towards an automatic car wash. I think one of them might have been the elf. The fact that people without cars wanted to go to an automatic car wash got my curiousity. I followed them and a girl put a coin in the machine before everyone walked in. We stood there for a few seconds before the wash started. It started spraying water jets at us and although it was a little painful, it was fun. It then started spraying a bunch of soap at us and it did not tasted good. I giant spinning brush then came by and knocked me to the ground. When I got back up I looked back at the girls and all of them had been replaced with emo guys except the elf.

      "...What happened to all of those girls?" I asked the elf.
      "I have no idea..." She said looking around.
      One of them then started to complain, "I hate this. I wanna go home."
      At the same time we both yelled, "Shut up!" and she slapped him in the back of the head.
      "Okay, you win. I'll wake up now." I said to my dream.

    4. Escape Boat, Escape Train, Escape Plane (January 27, 2012)

      DreamLucidAwake

      Escape Boat

      Before this dream started, I was testing day dream awareness. I was day dreaming about odd things because my mind wasn't fully awake. I day dreamed that I was swimming in the ocea after a cruise ship. Just to make a key point, I was climbed onto the ship by a really long ladder. Now onto the dream.

      I was sneaking around a facility (of what kind I do not know) with the elf. I was wearing a backpack that must have been full of a lot of stuff because it was heavy. I was also carrying a couple bottles of Gatorade and some granola bars in my left arm. It seemed that we were looking for supplies and anything useful. She opened a chest in the corner of the room and started digging through a bunch of junk. I think she even tossed out a rubber chicken as she was digging. Inside the chest she found a large old book, a compas, a couple sacks of something, a can of gasoline, and a familiar looking blue crystal. She put the book, compas, and crystal in her satchel bag. She tied a string around the gas can and put it around her other shoulder. She carried the sacks of what I think was fruit in her left arm.

      "I think we have enough supplies now." She said.
      "Agreed. How do we get out of here again." I said looking around confused.
      "That ladder over there." She said pointing behind me.

      She walked past me and started climbing the ladder. I followed right behind her, but she somehow got to the top in like 10 seconds. It took me a while to climb the ladder because of how heavy my backpack was.
      About half way up the ladder I suddenly became lucid because climbing the ladder seemed familiar to me. It may just be coincidence, but I think my day dream might have been successfully helped me become lucid in a way.

      "Guess who's lucid!" I shouted happily as I neared the top.
      "That's nice. Just hurry up." She said as she grabbed my hand.
      "Grouch..." I said as I climbed to the top.

      We started walking through a dimly lit metal hall that felt kind of sci-fi. I started to get a weird feeling as I followed her. It felt like something was about to happen and I think she felt it too.

      She stopped and said, "Be careful, I think there's a trap ahead."
      "Doubt it." I said trying to be positive.

      She slowly started walking forward. Then out of know where I heard a streaking sound and saw blood splatter from her stomach. She fell to the ground and lied there motionless.

      "Holy crap!" I said as I ran over to her.
      I lifted her head and asked her, "Are you okay? Can you move?"

      She could only moan in pain. I looked down and saw a huge gash in her stomach. 100 thoughts went through my mind at once for what I could do to save her. Then the thought of simply healing her wound came to mind.

      "Okay, don't worry, I think I can heal you." I said to her.
      I held out my hands and spoke to myself, "Just focus the magic in my hands..."
      "I'm ready!" I shouted once my hands started to glow white.

      I then placed my hands over her wound and released the energy into her body. She glowed brightly for a moment. I shielded my eyes and when I looked back her wound was completely healed. She opened her eyes and slowly stood back up. She was alive now, but it looked like she barely had enough energy to stand.

      "Awesome! I can heal people now!" I congratulated myself.
      "Just hurry up." She said stumbling to through the hall.
      "What? No thank you?" I said catching up to her.

      The hall led outside. I could see that it was the middle of the night and there was an ocean outside. At the end of the hall was a ladder that went down 10 feet. The elf started climbing down the ladder slowly, but I just jumped straight down. I sat there for a minute or so waiting for her to climb all the way down. We then walked over to a motor boat sitting next the docks.

      "Be very careful, or they'll spot us." She whispered.
      "I know, I know." I said.
      "Take the supplies and put them on the boat while I fill it with gas." She told me.

      She grabbed a bunch of bags that were sitting next to the boat and handed them to me. She then tossed the two sacks of fruit and her satchel on top of that. I quickly lost my balance and I stumbled back. I fell onto the boat and tipped it over and all of the supplies were in the water.

      "You idiot!" She yelled at me.
      "Don't worry! I'll get the stuff back!"
      "Don't forget to bring back my bag!" She yelled as I started swimming.

      I turned the boat back rightside up so she could fill it with gas. Then I started swimming around the harbor gathering the stuff I lost and putting it back in the boat. Right when I thought I had everything I remembered her satchel. I looked around for it, but I couldn't find it. Then I thought about the possibility of it sinking. I dove underwater to look for it, but it was too dark to see. I then remembered that she stuck a blue crystal inside the bag. It seems that crystals glow when I get near them, so I thought it might glow if I put a lot of focus on it. Luckily it worked, and I saw the bag glowing bright blue between two rocks. I grabbed it and brought it back to the boat.

      By the time I got there the elf had already finished filling the boat with gas. She was sitting in the drivers seat ready to get going. I climbed into the boat and we drove away. The dream ended right about here.


      Escape Train

      Me and the elf were sitting in a very large dimly lit room with a bunch of train tracks. We were in another facility again and trying to escape again. We planned to escape by train, but we needed a train first and to change the direction of the tracks. We walked through a door with a light above it. The room we walked into had a series of ladders that we needed to climb. It was kind of like if Donkey Kong was made 3D. We climbed the first ladder onto a platform. When we climbed up to it there were a few scorpions on the ground.

      "Ahh! Scorpions!" I screamed.
      "What do we do?" She asked me.
      "Kick them! Kick them!" I said as I stomped on one and kicked it.

      Once the scorpions were dead we climbed up the second ladder.
      As I climbed the second ladder I became lucid in the same way I did in the last dream.

      "Ladders? Again? What the hell?" I thought out loud.
      "Deal with it." The elf told me.

      We climbed to the second platform and kicked a few more scorpions before climbing to the third. On the third platform there was another door with a light above it. I tried to open it, but it was locked. I was about to think of a way to pick the lock before the elf charged into it. I think it was a bit much to have to break it open, but it worked. We walked into a well lit control room. There were too large windows on each side looked over too different train stations.

      "Go get the train while I guard the door." She said.
      "Okay, but what levers do I pull and what buttons do I press?" I asked her.
      "I don't know. Just pull all of the levers." She said kicking a scorpion.

      I walked over to the left window that overlooked our train station. There seemed to be something in the way that was blurring the glass. I pressed a red button to the right of it and the blurry glass slid out of the way. I still could barely see anything though because of how dark it was in there. So I pressed another button to the right of the window and the lights in the station turned on.

      "Hey! They told me lights don't work in dreams!" I said.
      "Hurry up. You're wasting time." She ordered me.

      I saw a rope hanging above me and I pulled down on it. A train then appeared on one of the tracks in the station. I then saw about 10 red levers below the window. I flipped them all down and as I did that the tracks started to straighten themselves out.

      "I did it!" I shouted in excitement.
      "Good. Now let's get out of here."
      "Wait. There's something wrong." I said starting to get a horrid feeling.
      "What did you do this time?" She asked me.
      "It feels like there's something down there..." I said trying to find it through the windows.
      "Just go already." She ordered me.

      We ran past the scorpions and jumped straight down the ground floor. When we walked out the door into the station we were both shocked by what we saw. There was some sort of monster in the station. It was 7 feet tall, had purple flesh, and a sword like claw on each hand. He took a couple of steps towards us and licked the blood off his blade. We took a couple steps back in terror of what we were seeing.

      "Look out!" She yelled as he lunged towards us.

      He tried to swipe us both with his two blades, but we both rolled out of the way. Although I really really really didn't want to fight this thing, I morphed into a black dragon.

      "Get to the train!" I told her as I lunged at the monster.

      I gripped with my back claws and started shredding it with my front claws and teeth. The elf then tried running past the monster towards the train. The monster quickly knocked me off of him and turned towards the elf as she ran by. He motioned to take a swipe at her and I slowed down time. I quickly ran between them and attempted to block the attack with arm. The good news was he wasn't able to slice off her head. The bad news is cut my arm really bad and it hurt. I fell to the floor as the elf stood at the back of the train. As the monster was about to take a final stab at me the elf fired a lightning bolt at it. I got up and ran towards the train as fast as I could while the monster chased after me. Once I got inside she pressed a button that closed a strong metalic door. The last thing I remember before waking up was the monster banging on the door, but failing to break it down.


      Escape Plane

      I can't remember the whole dream. I was on a plane trying to escape again from I don't know what. The seats were oddly arranged like a movie theater and there were a lot of fancy people on board. Then I saw two men and a woman from the back row run towards the cockpit. It looked pretty suspicious to me, so I followed them. When I ran in, the two men had their guns pointed at the pilots. I became lucid at this moment. The woman noticed me and pointed her gun at me.

      "What are you guys doing?" I asked.
      "What does it look like? We're hijacking this plane!" She told me.
      "Why?" I asked.
      "Because we're terrorists! That's what we do!" She said.

      I was about to ask her another question, but she was getting a bit annoyed with me and shot me in the head.
      The next thing I know, I'm sitting back in same seat I was before. The only difference now was that I seemed to be the only passenger.

      "Woah, weird lucid day dream." I thought to myself.
      "Waaaiiit a minute...
      I wasn't day dreaming! That was a real dream! And this is still a dream!" I yelled out loud.

      I then got curious about where everyone was and walked into the cockpit. The terrorists were there again and the two men in the group were trying to fly the plane.

      "Hello again." The woman said to me.
      "Where are the pilots...?" I asked loking around.
      "Over there." She said pointing her gun at two dead bodies in the corner.
      "Oh jeez..." I said looking at the bodies.

      I walked over to the two men flying the plane. They were doing a pretty crappy job. The radar showed that we were approaching the landing zone.

      "There's no way you can land this thing without crashing it." I told them.
      "Just wait and see!" She said.
      "We're starting to descend." One of the men said.

      I walked back into the passenger area and sat down. I tried thinking of a way for me to survive this situation. The only reasonable thing I could come up with was jump out. I saw the emergency exit door and opened it. I waited until we were very close to the ground before I jumped out. I did a roll when I hit the ground in an attempt to lessen the damage on me. Hitting a road at over 100mph is still gonna hurt though and I flew all over the place like a ragdoll. When I finally came to a stop I was on my back. I looked over to see the plane crash into another plane on the ground and explode.

      "Holy crap! This freaking hurts!" I yelled before I woke up.
