    Hyu's Adventures

    I've been lucid dreaming all my life. But it is only in late 2010 that I was introduced to what lucid dreaming actually is,
    and that it is possible to induce lucid dreams. Soon after, I discovered Dreamviews.
    These are the adventures and the curiosities I experience in my dreams.

    ~ Recurring Locations ~

    • The Beach (Image)
      A place I often end up in if I get lost, or if I use a means of teleportation without thinking of a destination.
      It is always dusk whenever I am there. Usually the beach is empty, but occasionally something of interest can be found.
      The beach is a place of serenity. A place where I can be alone and safe.
    • Teraluna - Riven (Image) (Image)
      Teraluna is an inhabited moon within a binary star system.
      It is orbiting a blue gas giant. It is only sparsely lit by both suns, which are quite far away.
      Riven is a hidden sky city, hovering over the seas of Teraluna.
      It is a safe haven to all it's inhabitants, and home to Yuya.
      The city is lit entirely by colorful bioluminescent plants and creatures, giving the place a rather surreal and vibrant look.
      Riven is my favorite place to visit whenever I am lucid.

    ~ Recurring Characters ~
    • Yuya (Image)
      She has been in my dreams ever since my early teens.
      Formerly a goddess of water, she now lives in Riven.
      She is my spirit guide (although she does not like to be labeled as such)
      The connection I experience with her is incredible.
      She is my friend, my companion, my love, my ecstasy, my guide and my teacher.
    • Faye (Image)
      She is my dream guide, and often changes her appearance.
      But for some reason she has recently turned evil, and now haunts my dreams.
      She is no longer the same person, and can seemingly no longer be reasoned with.
    • Silver (Image)
      A character from childhood dreams.
      He used to be my rival, but is now my dear friend.
      He is not a man of many words, and I do not encounter him very often.
    • Liv (Image)
      Liv is a succubus, a kind of demon.
      She is young, inexperienced, shy, but immensely kind and compassionate,
      even though at first glance she looks demonic and dangerous.
      Nowadays she lives in Riven. Yuya and I guide her on her path towards adulthood.
    • Shinave (Image)
      Formerly a goddess of ice. She is a wise and intelligent person.
      She is Yuya's mother.
    • Ifrit (Image)
      Formerly a god of fire. A being of terrible force and power, but also incredible wisdom.
      He has lived for many hundreds of years, and still upholds old and conservative ideals.
    • Selene
      A character from childhood dreams.
      She has fallen to the templars a long time ago.
    • Templars
      A vile force of darkness that has threatened my dreams in the past.

    1. Wolf transformation / Annoying religious girl

      , 08-16-2011 at 11:28 PM (Hyu's Adventures)
      I'm in Germany at a friends who's trowing a party.
      There's a few people there I know, plus a girl I've just met.
      Her first question after being introduced is: "Do you believe in god?"
      This annoys me. If this is the first thing she wants to know about me, it has obviously got to be very important to her.
      I reply with: "Which one?" thinking that she'll get the message and not talk to me for the rest of the evening, or at least drop the religious talk.

      I don't mind religious people at all, as long as they aren't annoying about it, and I have a very strong feeling that this woman is exactly that kind of person.
      To make things worse, she doesn't get it.

      "What do you mean? Our lord an savior Christ of course! Don't tell me you're one of those atheists..."
      "Yes, I am an atheist. But I could simply believe in another religion as well, you shouldn't generalize the term god like that. There's other beliefs out there you know."
      "Yes, but they are all false, and you are a bad person for not honoring our lord."

      You've got to be kidding me...
      I roll my eyes and walk away.
      There's no point in arguing with such people, I consider them borderline delusional.
      I grab some food from a buffet when I notice the girl followed me.

      "If you ask nicely I can teach you the way of Christ and save your soul you know... you can be forgiven!"
      "Listen girl, what you're saying is terribly offensive. Being religious does not make you a better person than I am."
      "I uphold moral values the same way you do and I need no religious teachings to tell me how to do so."
      "You should leave me alone."

      But she doesn't... instead she tells me that I'm going to hell.
      I contemplate explaining the difference between beliefs and facts to her, and how what she's saying is being offensive but I quickly decide against it.
      I've met people like her very rarely, but this is extreme.
      I look at the balcony and think: If only I could just fly away. This party sucks!
      If this was a dream I could just jump and begone.

      I feel the urge to try to levitate...
      I look at the girl who's now staring at me, looking genuinely sorry for myself.
      This makes me angry, I could slap her in the face.
      She seems to have no free will, just an empty shell... like a DC...

      Hmm... I look around.
      Nothing's off, everything seems perfectly fine... still... is this a dream?
      I try to retrace my steps... how did I get here?

      I have no idea... I must be dreaming!

      I approach the balcony with the girl pursuing me.
      Just before reaching the balcony I try to RC, but as my hand approaches my nose I finally know that I am dreaming, even though I haven't performed the RC yet.
      So I just jump off the balcony and fly away.

      It is nighttime, but I can see somewhat clearly.
      I fly over a forest, enjoying the nice and fresh air, and not being annoyed by that girl anymore.
      Flying... it really never gets old, it's such an amazing experience.
      But I feel like doing something different.
      I feel like running. Running as a wolf! Just as I did in Dancing with the wolves, Dragon at Stonehenge - Dream Journals - Lucid Dreaming - Dream Views

      I approach the ground and shift into a big white wolf mid flight and enter the forest fully transformed.
      As I run though the forest I quickly notice that it's not the same as last time.
      Last time was a magical experience, but this time it is not.
      It doesn't feel surreal at all, and the forest appears normal and boring... not to mention it is rather dark which is bad.

      Maybe last time I wasn't on earth? Maybe it was because I was with Olivia?
      I keep running faster and faster, trying to remember what it was like last time and hopefully teleport into the same scene.
      As I reach higher speeds my fur starts to sparkle and my vision becomes distorted.

      My vision normalizes and I'm certain that I've teleported back to the location I was in last time.
      It feels magical yet again. The forest is beautiful and oddly bright even though it's the middle of the night.
      The sensation of the air brushing through my fur is absolutely amazing.
      I wonder if I'll be able to meet Olivia or whoever she was yet again.
      I attempt to relocate the hill we were on last time and find it after about a minute.

      But she is not here.

      I howl into the night hoping that she'll hear me and come visit me...
    2. Beauty

      non dream - lucid - non lucid

      Still kinda stressed with school, my dream recall is pretty bad, but I still remember occasional lucids.
      Dreams are usually either short or not very vivid though.

      … I’m sitting at a table with 3 girls. They’re all wearing fancy dresses.
      We’re finishing our beers and waiting for a specific event so we can leave.
      We are going to drive somewhere, I know where. I notice the girl on the other side of the table is insanely beautiful.
      She has immensely detailed and bright green eyes, I can’t keep my eyes of them.
      She obviously notices me staring at her, but she seems to like it.
      She makes it very clear that she’s interested in me with very subtle signs.
      I contemplate asking her to go for a walk until we’re ready to leave.

      Then I finally realize what’s happening. She’s “perfect”.
      And perfection exists in only one place: the dream world.

      But this perfection intrigues me...
      What is perfect? Why does she appear perfect? I want to find out and look at her very carefully.
      The truth is, apart from maybe her eyes, she looks kinda normal.
      I can’t find anything specific that gives me this feeling of perfection.
      Maybe it is the way she smiles? This pure and innocent smile, something you’d never see in waking life?
      I finish my beer, stand up and hold my hand out to her. “Let’s go.”
      There is no need to bother with an explanation for the other 2 girls, I’m lucid, I’m in control,
      I don’t want them to ask questions, so they won’t.
      She gets up and we leave the room…
      lucid , non-lucid
    3. The girl from the beach.

      non dream - lucid - non lucid

      I'm in my bathroom, brushing my teeth before I go to bed. (It looks like my real bathroom)
      As I exit the bathroom, I enter a corridor in some sort of castle. (Yeah... I don't live in a castle)
      I know where my room is, so I keep going.
      I take an elevator to the next floor.
      As the doors open I walk onto a beach and I just keep heading on straight.
      I recognize that I've been on this very beach twice in my recent dreams already and become lucid.

      I plan on teleporting to Teraluna, but I notice a young women not far away, dancing on the beach in a kimono.
      Usually I wouldn't care, but something felt odd about her, and I got the sudden urge to investigate.
      I grab a handful of sand and start walking towards her, slowly letting the sand escape from my hand.
      I'm right next to her, but she doesn't seem to notice me and keeps dancing.
      Her outfit reminds me of what Yuna in FFX is wearing, though there are quite a few differences.
      I guess that she's in her early 20's, probably a bit younger than I am.
      She has long dark brown hair, moving about as she dances.


      I don't think she heard me.
      I have the odd sensation that I somehow know her, but not really.
      I raise my voice:

      "Hello friend!"

      "Oh, hello there!"

      I wonder if she's a fellow dreamer, but I'm not really sure how to ask her.

      "What are you doing?"

      "I'm looking for inspiration for a story I'm writing"

      "I see. Dreams are an awesome source of inspiration, aren't they?"

      She stops dancing and looks a me surprised.

      "You're a dreamer, aren't you?"

      "Yes, I am!"

      I want to ask her her name, but suddenly she says she's found something, takes off and flies away.
      I take off myself and try to follow her. She's flying fast, VERY fast, at one point I think that I cannot keep up, but a few moments later flying at that speed feels easy.
      She lands in some city with old but beautiful buildings, I land right behind her.
      The architecture is confusing the hell out of me though, it makes no sense, everything feels completely out of place.

      "Hi again!"

      She turns around, looks at me and seems shocked for a second.
      I notice that I accidentally summoned my wings so I could match her speed.
      They look a bit scary, being made of energy and flames.
      I unsummon them.

      "Oops, sorry, I didn't mean to scare you."

      She keeps staring right past me, where my wings used to be, then she's suddenly gone.
      I'm confused and try to look for her aura... nothing.

      A few moments later I wake up.
