      Searching for Claire

      Well, when you don't write a dream until 2 months later, things become a little blurry. It started out with me walking along some part of Honey Creek Road in Ohio. Chris was also walking with me. It was rainy and a little foggy. We were looking for something, but I wasn't quite sure what we were looking for at the time. The setting of the dream and the fact that we weren't succeeding made us feel kind of bad. "I'm getting sick of this rain." I said. Right after I said this, I noticed a girl ahead who doesn't seem to be bothered by the rain. I'm pretty sure it was my dream student, Molly.

      Some sort of weird dream thing happened where I started seeing the world through her eyes for a moment. Through her eyes, there was no rain, but only sunshine. Everything was just fine and happy. There's something I learned from that about positive thinking, but I don't feel like explaining it. When my vision returned to normal, I felt a lot better. The rain quickly disappeared and the sun started to shine brightly. We walked over to Molly and greeted her. I can't remember what was said, but she agreed to help us.

      As we walked along the road I saw a town off in the distance. To the side of the road I also notice a sign with a few things about the town. There were pictures of different things associated with the town. At the bottom right corner of one of the images there was a man reading a newspaper. I saw Claire's picture in the paper.
      I finally became lucid due to all of the obvious signs I was dreaming. I realized that Claire is who were looking for. She was missing and was apparently last spotted in this town. I looked away from the sign and said, "I think Claire might be in this town!" "Why do you think that?" Chris asked. "Look at this picture." I told him. When I looked back at the picture, the newspaper showed an article about a car crash instead of Claire.

      I got a little annoyed and tried to figure out how I thought I saw Claire. "I could have sworn I saw Claire in that picture." I said. "I remember you told me that sometimes text changes inside dreams. So maybe it works the same for pictures." Molly said. That actually made sense. "Thanks, I think you might be right." I said. I started walking towards the town, but then it felt like I was alone. I turned around and realized they were still standing next to the sign. "Aren't you guys coming?" I asked. I saw that Chris was looking a bit nervous. "Claire scares me sometimes." Chris said. "Alright, you two can stay here, but I'm going to find Claire." I said. I then proceeded to walk towards town.

      The dream skipped here and I was now inside an indoor basketball court. Claire was one of the coaches for some reason. I was going to talk to her, but I somehow ended up being put in the middle of a basket ball game. I used my lucid powers to give myself a little bit of an edge in the game. I was doing things like using strength to make power shots, moving very fast, and slowing down time. When one of the kids finally realized what I was doing he became very angry. He started to have some sort of violent anger seizure thing and had to be taken to the hospital. I think I woke up after that.

    2. 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.
    3. Draflam War, Teaching Dream Control, Lucid Fragment (February 19, 2012)

      by , 02-28-2012 at 05:31 AM (Chronicles of Ethos)
      DreamLucidAwake

      I should probably mention that I used Daydream Awareness again. I don't feel like going into detail about my daydreams anymore though.

      Draflam War

      The dream started off with me standing inside the void with Claire. She was talking about the Aranians and Draflams while I was playing with a little ball of light. I think she mentioned something about being a rouge Draflam and the stupid war between two kingdoms. I was too distracted by the floating light to absorb most of the conversation. She saw that I wasn't paying attention and slapped me in the back of the head. I started paying attention and became lucid after realizing that standing inside the void isn't an everyday thing.

      "Hey! Pay attention!" She yelled at me.
      "What?" I asked.
      "We need a dragonborn. You're our secret weapon." She said.
      "Alright, teleport us to the battlefield." I said.

      Claire then took the little ball of light away from me. She focused it between her hands and expanded it until we were both sucked into it. I fell onto my back and was staring at a dark cloudy sky. I got up and looked at my surroundings. I was in the middle of a large grassy field next to a hill in the middle. Far in the distance behind me was an army of medieval style soldiers marching towards the field. They were the Aranians. In front of me I could see several groups of men in red robes getting into defensive positions. They were the Draflams. I saw a few of the red guys run behind the hill.

      "I'll go kill them!" I shouted before turning into a dragon.
      "No! Wait!" Claire yelled.

      I kind of ignored her and ran behind the hill with fire in my claws. I stopped when I saw a huge mass of red in front of me. There were like 50 Draflams just standing there. I stared at them for a moment and they stared at me. Then they all pulled out these weird short swords and started charging them with magic. I quickly turned around and started running back towards the hill. They chased after me and started shooting some explosive spells at me.

      "Holy shit! Claire, kill them!" I screamed.

      I looked at the top of the hill and saw that Claire was already shooting lightning bolts at them. I realized that this battle was going to be a bloody mess for us if I didn't use my powers. I then remembered that I can summon dragons and that Claire can ride them. I held my one hand out and pointed it at the hill and I pointed the other at the sky. I started thinking about a fire dragon and an ice dragon.

      "Summon dragons!" I yelled.

      A red dragon then jumped over the hill and landed in front of me. He breathed fire on the Draflams that were chasing me and started to attack them. When they were all dead, Claire jumped on the dragon and flew towards the other Draflams. I looked up at the sky to see where the other dragon was. I saw a white dragon dive down from the clouds and land in front of me. She waited for me to give her a command. I saw the Aranian army run by me. They had giant fireballs and flaming arrows flying towards them.

      "Go and help the Aranians. Defend them as much as you can."

      The dragon nodded and flew above the army. I watched her to see if she would do a good job. A giant fireball flew towards them, but the dragon froze it with her ice breath and smashed it with her tail. To deal with the arrows, she would blow them away by flapping her wings. My attention then switched to a stone fortress on the other side of the hill. I figured that was our main objective. I saw Chris in an Aranian uniform trying to break the door of a tower open. I decided to run over there to help him out.

      "Why do we need in here?" I asked him.
      "We need to take out those ballistas so Claire can attack." He said.
      "Alright, let's do this." I said.

      We both charged at the door and busted it open. A Draflam tried to stab Chris from behind, but I swiped him with my tail blade. A couple more ran towards us and Chris pulled out his sword and killed them. We climbed up the spiral staircase together and had to fight many more Draflams. We got hurt a few times on the way up, but I don't feel like going into detail. When we reached the top I saw a lot ballistae at the top of the tower shooting at Claire and the fire dragon. I was sick of killing those Draflams and felt like taking them down with one attack.

      "Chris, duck." I said.
      "Oh crap." He said before diving onto the floor.

      I charged a huge amount of electricity in me until I felt like I had enough. I then held out my hands and released a wave of lightning in all directions. When they were all dead Claire flew back towards us with the dragon. Me and Chris jumped off just before the dragon shot a fireball at the tower. I grabbed Chris and flew us down to the ground safely. Claire jumped off of the dragon and landed on one of the fortress walls.

      "What now?" I asked Chris.
      "I'll go clear out another tower. You should destroy that gun over there." He said.
      "Okay." I said.

      I looked across the field to see some huge turret shooting at the Aranians. I saw a row of tanks on the other side of the field past the turret. I knew that if I could just get in that tank I could destroy the turret. I ran across the field and hoped that the gun wouldn't target me. Of course it still started shooting at me anyways. I used that purple energy thing as a shield without thinking about as I ran across. When the gunner realized he couldn't shoot through my shield he just started shooting the tanks. He managed to blow up all but one tank. I got in the tank and started shooting at turret. It blew up after 3 shots. That's the last thing I remember before walking up.


      Teaching Dream Control

      I was talking to a girl over AJAX chat about lucid dreaming. I became lucid pretty early in the conversation, but I can't remember many details. The girl I was talking to was the same one from the Lucid Contract dream. From our chat on AJAX I learned that her name is in fact Molly. When I became lucid I got a little excited and told her that we were both dreaming. She denied it at first, but she then said she did a successful reality check. We started talking even more about our lucid dream and about dream control. I remember that we even started reffering to me as a dream guide. She said something about dream control being impossible for her and I started to argue with her on that.

      "If it's so easy then why don't you tell me how to do it?" She asked.
      "I'm not good at explaining things." I said.
      "I bet that means you can't do it either."
      "Oh I can do it. Want me to show you?" I asked.
      "Go ahead and try to prove it Mr. Dream Guide."

      Challenge accepted. I pushed my chair out of the way and stepped back a few feet. I ran foward and jumped into the computer screen. I ended up teleporting outside of Molly's computer just like I wanted. I scared the crap out of her when I came out of the computer and landed on her. I got up off the ground and laughed at how much fun it was to teleport through a computer.

      "Is that proof enough for you?" I asked her.
      "How did you jump out of my computer???" She asked me.
      "It's called teleportation. You should learn it sometime." I said.
      "What else can you do?" She asked.
      "Well I can fly." I said.

      I took a few steps back and then levitated into the air. I flew around the room for a while. I can't really remember the rest of the dream.


      Lucid Fragment

      I was in some half destroyed city that was experiencing a war. I was wearing one of those fancy nano suits from Crysis. I had a pistol and I was running towards someone who had their back to me. I was planning on using a sneak attack. When I got close to him he quickly turned around and fired his shotgun at me. I slowed down time and bent backwards, just barely dodging bullets. I became lucid right after doing that. I knocked the shotgun out of his hands and he ran away. I activated my suit's super speed function and chased him down. When I caught up to him, I jumped into the air, and kicked him in the back of the head. I didn't bother doing anything else to him since he was already knocked out.

      I ran back to the spot I encountered him and took his shotgun. I saw girl lying under truck with an LMG shooting all of my guys. I got on the ground and started crawling towards her from behind. When I got close enough, I started "firing" my shotgun at her. It must have been out of ammo or something. She noticed me and pulled out a pistol. I jumped on top of her and tried to keep the gun pointed away from me. I eventually got hold of the gun and pointed it at her. I was about to shoot her, but then I decided not to. For some reason it felt too evil to do. She then kicked me in the groin and I woke up.
