    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. WILD - Encounter with future self - Faye - Encounter with DV members

      , 07-30-2014 at 12:29 AM (Hyu's Adventures)

      I set myself an alarm to wake me up after ~6 hours of sleep.
      The idea was to attempt a WILD, which is something I haven't done in a long time.
      I figured with a WILD I would remember my goals more easily, and I might be able to tackle the issues I have with Faye.

      I wake up from the alarm. I immediately close my eyes again and try to remember any dreams.
      All I can remember is a few weak fragments. I do not bother writing them down.
      Instead I get up and walk around in my room a little, thinking about my dream goals.
      The most important thing would be to deal with Faye. I feel like this is crucial in order to fix my dreams.
      I've also been dared to tell her how she makes me feel.
      I go back to bed after roughly 5 minutes and attempt to WILD.

      I quickly get some HI, followed by the appearance of random faces.
      Some scenes begin to form, but they seem to fall apart before I can transition.
      I open my eyes a few times by accident. I'm really not used to do this anymore.

      After some time I notice that I can see my room even though my eyes are still closed.
      Oh. I am actually already dreaming. For some reason I decide to just stand up, even though I know that I've lost many lucids by doing this.
      Fortunately this time it works. My body is really heavy though.
      I have a lot of trouble moving, but I eventually manage to stand up.

      I shake myself, a bit like a dog shaking away water from its wet pelt. Except I shake away the weight. It works. Neat!
      I rub my hands together and look around.
      I'm not in my room anymore. It's really dark.
      Upon closer inspection, I appear to be standing on some dark marble floor, in an empty room that is clouded in dark fog.
      Another person appears in front of me. First it's just an outline, but as he comes closer he looks more and more like a normal human being.

      Wait what? He looks exactly like me!
      I take a step back as I'm really creeped out. I am super uncomfortable encountering myself.
      He looks a bit older than myself though... maybe by a few years.

      "Who are you?"
      "I am Hyu"


      "You're not being helpful."
      "Haha, I'm a future version of yourself, of course!"

      So now what? Am I supposed to ask him something?
      I probably should. Even though he's still creeping me out...

      "So... any future advice for me?"
      "Hmm... well... not really."
      "Alright, alright. I can tell you that it is going to work out. Is that helpful?"
      "What is going to work out?"
      "You'll know."
      "Oh for fucks sake, you're pulling the same shit as all of the other DC's"
      "Well. What did you expect? I am a DC."
      "... you do have a point..."

      He starts to walk away from me, but just before he disappears in the fog he addresses me one last time:

      "On second thought... maybe you should get that Unreal 4 license. Mess around with it a little you know?"

      (I have thought so much about starting my own company over the past few days. Was this what he was referring to when he said that everything would work out?
      The comment about getting a UE4 license seems related to this.)

      The black fog suddenly starts to move in. Oh shit, the dream is falling apart.
      I panic and slam my palms against the ground yelling "PORTAL!".
      For some reason this works. I fall through the ground, spin around a little and then crash land somewhere in the city.
      I rub my hands against each other very hard. The dream is still unstable, I need to engage my senses.
      A young girl eating some ice cream catches my attention. I steal her ice cream cone and take a large bite.

      "Hey! That's MY ice cream!"
      "Sorry, I need to stabilize."
      "Oh, okay."

      After the inevitable brain freeze I feel like messing around with dream powers a little.
      I don't do this very often. I try to grasp onto the clouds and squeeze them to make it rain.
      It doesn't work whatsoever. Well, this is disappointing, but I'm not sure what I was expecting.

      Then I notice the presence of a huge stargate. That wasn't here before!
      I want to visit Yuya! I point at it and yell:

      "Teraluna, Riven!"

      The gate dials in and opens a portal. Well, that was easy. Sweet!
      I charge at the portal, wanting to jump through.
      But at the last moment someone grabs on to me, trying to hold me back.
      What the hell? Go away!
      I can't unsummon him??? WTF? This never fails!
      More people run at me, all trying to prevent me from going through the portal.
      Oh my god there is an endless stream of them. Hundreds of people all holding me down.

      I use my dream powers to release a shockwave to get them off me.
      Those who were close to me are thrown a few meters back and they pile up on top of each other.
      Then I spot Faye in the middle of it all, controlling the DC's like puppets.
      Her smile is pure evil.
      She makes a gesture, and the stargate unsummons.

      "You're not going anywhere tonight."

      I am afraid of her, and angry at myself. I want my dreams back. I am sick of this Faye nonsense.
      My katana materializes in my hand, even though I have no desire to summon it.


      Faye summons an exact copy of my katana... how...?
      This is not right. She can't do that. She doesn't have that power.
      Are these her dreams now? Have I lost all control over them?
      My desire to visit Yuya fades. I want this dream to end. I feel completely powerless.

      "Aww, I thought you would put up a fight. That would have been so cute."
      "And oh so idiotic. You don't understand anything."

      I have no reply. I close my eyes. This will end the dream...

      ... I'm in some sort of japanese garden. Probably sight seeing or something? I'm with a few other people. (3 I think)
      Everyone is talking about dreams, so I conclude that they must all be DV members.
      But I don't understand what they're talking about. Some induction techniques involving butterflies? What?
      I feel bad because I can't contribute anything to the discussion.

      Then I notice that one of them has purple hair, so obviously she must be ~ Dreamer ~.
      I'm somewhat proud of having figured that out all on my own!
      I want to do something to impress her. I want to show her something really cool.
      And then I have the most glorious of ideas! I am going to use my dream powers to piss a rainbow!
      (Oh god why . By the way I'm totally blaming KristaNicole for this. XD)

      "Hey Dreamer, check this out!"

      I unzip my pants, point my dick upwards at a 45° angle for maximum efficiency and commence some high pressure pissing.
      The stream of piss is nothing short of impressive, but it doesn't create a rainbow.
      Everyone is giving me this what the hell are you doing look. I don't understand why.
      It makes me sad that no rainbow is appearing.

      The WILD has helped to some extend. My dreams did contain elements from my dream goals, but I failed to act on them.
      It's cool that I saw ~ Dreamer ~, even though I wasn't lucid and I behaved like a complete idiot.
      I'm quite disappointed at how I dealt with Faye.
    2. Dreams change - A stay at an ice hotel on another world

      , 09-26-2011 at 02:49 AM (Hyu's Adventures)
      I neglected my online DJ quite a bit. :/
      I'll try to update it more regularly again.

      I'm walking around my room when I suddenly spot an owl sitting on the frame of a window leading outside.
      I get a déjà-vu feeling. This doesn't come as too much of a surprise though, this very thing happened today in waking life.

      (It did, I actually managed to film him for a minute or so. )

      I am dreaming.
      The owl flies away as I approach the window. That's kind of unfortunate, I wanted to pet it.
      Looking outside the window I notice that everything looks rather weird.
      For one, the colors are off, but the shapes of the trees don't seem to be correct either.
      Everything looks close to it's waking life counterpart, but at the same time, it couldn't be more different.

      This is kind of weird, and I decide to jump out of the window to investigate.
      I don't feel the impact of landing at all, the dream probably isn't very stable.
      I start rubbing my hands, to get some feeling into my dream body.
      As I do this I notice that the whole sky changes.
      Huh? this is odd.
      It suddenly starts to snow, even though there are no clouds in the sky, and it doesn't really feel that cold?

      Just as I think that, I can suddenly feel the icy breeze. What the heck?
      I decide to take my shirt off, to feel the cold even more strongly to hopefully further stabilize the dream.
      This has worked once in the past, it might work again.
      Unfortunately it doesn't really strengthen my senses though.
      I can still feel the coldness, but the feeling is quite dull.
      The colors aren't very vivid either, and rubbing my hands doesn't feel right.

      I turn around and notice that my house is gone.
      This dream isn't stable at all, this isn't working.
      I decide to try something I have thought of a few times.
      I will wake myself up, then try to DEILD and hopefully end up in a more stable dream.
      I close my eyes and wait for a bit, focusing on not opening my eyes.

      I wake up within seconds, and my eyes open just a tiny bit before I'm able to stop.
      After some light flashing, which I don't really think about, I seem to fall back asleep.

      I'm not entirely certain that I have begun dreaming yet, but I open my eyes anyways.
      Yep, definitely dreaming!
      I get up and rub my hands again, this time it feels much more realistic.
      Great! I summon my phoenix wings and teleport to Teraluna, hoping to meet up with Yuya.

      After meeting up we stroll over the local market, discussing random things.
      I end up telling her about the dream I had previous to this one.

      "Something has changed, my dreams feel different..."
      "How so?"
      "Colors for example. My dreams used to be dominated by cold colors, but they aren't anymore."
      "Then there's coldness, I have only recently started to experience dreams where I was cold."
      "Don't get me wrong, I don't dislike it at all, but for some reason it feels so weird."
      "Haha, don't worry about it, your perception can change over time, it's perfectly natural."

      "Yeah... if only the cold would feel remotely as enjoyable in waking life."
      "You really seem to enjoy it in dreams, you've mentioned it before."
      "Hey, wanna go visit the temple of ice on Twi'jur?"

      "Uuh... sure, why not?"

      I'm a bit worried that I won't make the transition to a new place without waking up.
      This dream has been going on for some time now.
      I try to suppress that thought though, it won't do me any good.

      Yuya performs some sort of trick to create a teleportation bubble.
      It's the first time I'm seeing it, she usually draws portals.

      We end up inside a big room, which reminds me of an hotel reception.
      I shiver from the cold... this place is completely made out of ice!

      I wonder if ice hotels look anything like this in waking life... well, probably not.
      We start walking up a spiral staircase, which is made out of ice as well.
      The ice is very clear and you can see through the stairs.
      My feet start hurting really bad from walking on the ice barefoot.
      It really burns. I wanted to ignore it at first, but it just becomes too painful over time.

      I decide to channel a tiny bit of energy into my feet, to heat them up.
      I can feel a tiny layer of ice melting under my feet, and the pain immediately goes away.

      "Try not to melt the whole place down, yes?"
      "Haha, no worries."

      Thinking about it, Yuya doesn't seem cold at all.
      We reach a higher level of the building we're in, which is a lot more lively than it was downstairs.
      There are different kind of humanoid creatures walking and flying around.
      I spot many fairy type creatures with ice wings.
      I'm assuming that they're the natural inhabitants of this place.

      We stop at some kind of shop... they're selling ice creams, sweet!
      It seems like you can only get a single scoop of ice cream at a time.
      Yuya and I both get one.
      She's sort of staring at me, waiting for me to eat my ice cream which I find a bit weird.
      I decide to do something funny and put the whole thing in my mouth with a single bite.

      "What... what are you doing?"

      I realize I can't swallow, it's too big.
      But I know just what to do, I channel some energy into my mouth, melting the ice cream, and swallow everything at once.
      It was still quite a bit colder than I anticipated though.
      I get a massive brain freeze, it hurts so much that my vision blacks out for a second.

      "Haha, what are you doing? You don't learn, do you?"
      "Nope. This is the correct way of eating ice cream, I insist! "

      We did something after that, but I cannot recall what it was.

      It's getting late and we're both tired.
      Fortunately this seems to be an hotel and we get a room for the night.
      To my disappointment, the bed is made out of ice as well.
      Sure, there are some cloth covers over it, but this is going to be a cold night.
      It's probably going to be uncomfortably hard as well.

      "I can't promise that I'm not going to melt through this during the night."
      "Haha, please don't do that, I don't want to drop into the room below us midnight."
      "That would be quite awkward... but insanely hilarious."
      "No doubt, I still suggest you keep your firey spells to a minimum."
      "Alright alright. "

      Sharing a bed doesn't feel uncomfortable anymore.
      I remember that it felt really awkward the first few times after I started inducing lucid dreams,
      but for some reason it abruptly stopped.
      I'm much more confident around Yuya, I like it.

      The bed isn't as uncomfortable and as cold as I thought it would be.
      Still, I'd prefer it do be warmer.
      My vision quickly starts blacking out.
      No wonder, it feels like this dream has lasted for hours, there's no way I can keep it up for longer...
