    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. Worlds Collide

      , 02-15-2012 at 02:19 AM (Hyu's Adventures)
      It's been quite some time since my last DJ post.
      I'll try to be more active on DV again, and I'll probably post some of the dreams I had during my absence.

      Random music for no good reason:

      The day before this dream I had surgery on my foot.
      Nothing serious, but I still needed a massive bandage and pain meds for the healing process.
      This made it rather uncomfortable to sleep, and sure enough, after just ~6 hours of sleep I woke up.

      The pain wasn't bad as long as I didn't move... however that's exactly what I wanted to do.
      I must have slept in an awkward position because my left leg (where I've gotten surgery on) was very tired.
      I didn't want to move though, because I knew it would hurt.
      The pain meds were on my desk where I left them, out of reach without getting up.

      I just wanted to go back to sleep, but it just didn't seem to work.
      The strain on my left leg kept me awake, just barely... I kept drifting in and out of consciousness.
      This was coupled with random thoughts that didn't make much sense.

      I kept trying though, and after some time, in a brief moment of clarity, I noticed that I was feeling vibrations all over my body.
      I knew this feeling all too well, because it happens quite often when I attempt to WILD.
      I haven't done that in a while, but for some reason I thought that because of this I could now transition into a dream.
      (I wasn't really thinking clearly)

      I try to levitate out of bed as a means to separate my dream body from my physical body.
      At this point I can clearly feel the existence of both.
      It seems like the stronger the vibrations, the less I feel my physical body.
      Attempting to levitate seems safer to do, because I don't run the risk of moving my physical body.

      I slowly start to drift upwards.
      There is no more gravity and the blanket is gone.
      I land on my bed and start rubbing my hands in fear of loosing the dream.
      It is only then that I realize that I've just cheated my way into sleeping... sort of... well not really, but I'm asleep, that's all that counts.
      I check my foot and it's all normal. No bandages, nothing.

      It's rather dark. I was hoping rubbing my hands would fix this, but it didn't.
      I flick the light switch in my room, but nothing happens.
      Meh, would have been too easy.
      Afraid to see myself in bed I leave by jumping out of the window.
      (Seeing myself makes me uncomfortable and has woken me up in the past.)

      I land softly and walk into the street in the hopes of the dream being lit up by the streetlights.
      But it doesn't help.
      I don't want to wake up, I want to stay asleep as long as possible.
      This is why I'm afraid to try spinning, or use other techniques to change the scene... if I fail I could wake up.

      I rub my hands again.
      "Oh come-on, work already!"
      It doesn't.

      I try to make it rain with my mind, thinking it won't work because the dream is unstable. (dark)
      But for some reason it does.
      I feel the rain drops on my skin, and as the feeling becomes more intense, the dream finally becomes properly lit.

      (Rain has been an amazing tool to keep my dreams stable in the past. The constant feeling of raindrops keeps my senses focused in the dream)

      I decide to slowly walk through the street and see if I find something interesting.
      I'm too afraid to attempt to teleport somewhere else. If I mess it up and wake up there's no way I'll be able to fall back asleep.

      Suddenly, I realize that I have changed location.
      I am now in Germany, in front of a friends house.
      How did that happen?

      My friend C. comes out of the house.
      "Can't sleep either huh?"

      It's weird hearing him speak perfect English. We talk German with each-other in waking life.

      "What are you talking about? You're not making any sense, this is a dream."

      He looks confused but shrugs it off.

      "I have to show you something, follow me."

      I follow him into his room where he points at his tv.
      There's a newscast... something about another dimension merging with our's.
      It's rather confusing. It quickly becomes apparent that it's about the dream plane though.
      It is merging with the waking world.

      This confuses the hell out of me, I'm fully aware I'm dreaming, but the whole situation is built around being awake.
      Then I spot Faye on the couch. She makes me a sign to stay quiet, not to tell that I know about the dream plane.

      "Can you believe this? This is so weird! Do you have any idea what this is?"
      "Ehhh, haha, yeah... it is weird, isn't it?"

      Probably the most unconvincing thing I've said in my entire life.
      I wonder why Faye wants me to stay quiet about this...

      ... I am now at the location where the tv broadcast is occurring.
      It's in some sort of park, I don't think I know this place.
      There's some sort of spatial disturbance in the air, and I can see spirits from the dream plane trying to cross over.
      It's a rather surreal experience. (at this point I actually believe that this is really happening.)
      I try to spot Yuya on the other side in the hopes that she can cross over but I can't find her.

      My friend is there again, rambling a bunch of nonsense... that we're all going to die among other things.

      Spirits are now crossing over and materialize on our side. Some politicians have appeared and are greeting them,
      and welcoming them into our world.
      Other people are protesting the situation, waving signs with the word "Spirit" crossed out.

      "Faye!... What?"
      "Snap out of it!"

      The scene freezes, except for Faye and myself.
      She grabs my hand and drags me away.

      I realize that I drifted out of lucidity.

      "I thought you were trying to stay asleep, what the hell are you doing?"
      "Err... yeah. I nearly lost it there."
      " "nearly" huh? "

      We arrive at some sort of cafe and we stop at a table.
      Faye looks like she's about to scold me.

      "I know, I know... constant awareness."
      "That's right."
      "But it's difficult right now, I have an injury in the other life."

      A waiter brings us a coffee and Faye hands it to me.

      "Drink! This will help."

      I drink the coffee and it feels like the caffeine rushes directly into my head.
      I am now thinking clearly and my vision is perfectly fine even though it's still night.

      I walk down the street with Faye and we talk about a few things.
      She's trying to keep me asleep.
      After some time I realize a minor oddity.

      "So... technically I'm talking to myself right now eh?"
      "I've told you before, it's quite a bit more complicated than that."
      "That's quite an understatement. I know you've tried to explain it before, but I still don't really get it."
      "You have a good idea, that's enough."
      "But I want to know more."
      "You don't understand every detail of the universe either, yet it doesn't prevent you from living in it just fine."
      "It doesn't prevent me from trying to understand every last detail of it either."

      She smiles.

      The street abruptly ends. There's nothing but darkness behind it.
      I turn around. Darkness is catching up with us, there's maybe another 10 meters of street left.

      "End of the line Hyu."
      "Aww, I don't want to wake up."
      "It's alright, you've been asleep for a long time, it's nearly time to get up anyways."

      That makes me feel a lot better.

      "Bye bye, Hyunkell-san"
      I reply in a funny way:
      "Goodbye, dreamguide-o-saaan"

      She sticks her tongue out in a cute way and laughs.

      I wake up. It's been over 7 hours since I went to bed, so I decide to get up.
      To my surprise, moving my foot doesn't hurt nearly as a bad as I thought it would.
    2. Female dream body / helping the Dei-ya

      , 08-29-2011 at 06:59 PM (Hyu's Adventures)
      I'm in Haven, on Teraluna.
      This time I immediately think about stabilizing my dream properly.
      I try to focus on all of my senses and recall some of those very long and stable dreams I've had.
      I do so by sitting in a meditative pose. Yuya is waiting for me to finish stabilizing so we can go somewhere.
      At first I'm a bit worried that I'm loosing precious time by doing this, but these worries quickly fade away.
      Suddenly I feel sort of a click, all over my body.
      It feels as if I was lightheaded all the time and it just went away.

      I investigate my surroundings, an all I can think of is "this is so real".

      "I'm ready... I think?"
      "Yes, you are."

      Yuya stares deeply into my eyes and projects images of a distant world into my mind.
      She grabs my hand and I teleport the both of us to the world she's shown me.

      It's a beautiful world, not unlike some places on earth.
      Buildings are made out of mostly white stone which gives everything a very special and slightly surreal look.
      We enter one of the buildings and meet up with a women who's been waiting for us.
      She talks with Yuya for a bit and another woman appears.
      But this time I immediately recognize who she is.
      I can feel that I am much more aware than I have been in my dreams recently.

      "Hello Faye."
      "Ah, you're learning!"
      "Let's hope that I am..."

      Yuya joins us and proceeds to explain the story of this world.
      It is split into two factions, the Dei-ya, who seek enlightenment, and another race who seeks power.
      The world was originally split in two, but over the past few years the Dei-ya have lost most of it to the other faction.
      However, these lands were not lost through wars.
      There is some sort of council in place, consisting of the leaders of both races, and all decisions require a majority of council members to agree.
      Even though each faction has an identical number of council members, the Dei-ya are physically much weaker than the other faction,
      and they are easily intimidated into taking decisions they do not want to make.

      Only one women was able to stand up to the other faction, but she passed away recently.
      Today is a new council meeting in which the other faction will attempt to acquire world dominance, and there is no-one there to stop them.
      The story sounds a bit familiar, but I decide not to worry about that.
      Yuya explains that the woman who passed away will have to be replaced by a new council member.

      "How strong exactly are those people from the other faction?"
      "Quite strong, but no match for us."
      "I see you're having the same idea I'm having. One of us is going to be on tonight's council session as a Dei-ya member."

      "So who's going to do it?"
      "Well, all Dei-ya council members are women so..."
      "You're going to do it then?"
      "Unfortunately, that won't work, many people around here know who I am. They'll realize I am not Dei-ya."
      "Oh... that's a bit of a problem, what can we do?"
      "Well... I'm afraid you're going to have to do it..."


      "Erm... I'm not sure if I'll pass as a woman Yuya..."
      "Well, not the way you're looking right now, that's for sure..."

      I'm really starting to dislike this. What does she plan? Dress me up as a women?
      Faye bursts out laughing, but then Yuya explains.

      "Your dream body, does it look like your waking life body?"
      "Well, no, not exactly, there are many similarities, but no, it's not the same."
      "So, why is your dream body male?"
      "... because I'm... oh boy... I see where this is going."

      Yuya smiles and summons a huge mirror.

      "Transforming into the opposite gender is actually quite easy, your dream body actually contains the information for both genders."
      "Great... so I'm going to have to turn into a girl?"

      Faye finds all of this highly amusing, me on the other hand, not so much.
      I decide to lighten up though, after all it could be interesting, but it is quite awkward...
      I attempt to shift my form, not really sure what the hell I'm doing, but everything works surprisingly easy.
      I feel the bones in my body slightly rearranging which feels massively weird, but the process only lasts a split second.

      So here I'm standing, in front of that mirror, looking at myself, and I cannot really believe my eyes.
      Faye comments on the situation: "Oh my, you're quite hot Hyu, haha."
      Yuya agrees: "You're adorable."

      Both of them are having one hell of a time.
      I look down and immediately spot my breasts. This is so weird.
      I poke one of them which causes Faye to break out in laughter.
      I'm still wearing nothing but the white pants I usually wear in my dream, it all looks so wrong.
      However I do look cute as a woman. I have long curly red hair and a few freckles around my nose.

      Yuya hands me a white dress. I'm a bit surprised where she got it from.
      I awkwardly put it on when Yuya explains that it's one of her's, she's borrowing it to me.
      Wearing Yuya's clothes makes everything even more awkward. I have trouble maintaining composure.
      This is looking much better already.
      I then proceed to drop my pants, but then I am suddenly shocked because it feels like something is missing.

      "What's up Hyu?"
      "What? Is something wrong."

      I look at Yuya, and the only thing I can manage to say is:

      "... Hyu?"
      "It's missing, I'm freaking the fuck out."

      Both Faye and Yuya burst out laughing.
      Once the initial shock fades I find it amusing myself as well. This is a dream body... I'm so silly.
      I said penis... pfff this is ridiculous.

      We're on our way to the council meeting and I am given a bracelet with a crescent moon hanging from it.
      It is a symbol that I am a council member.
      The last few steps I have to walk alone, Yuya and Faye have to remain behind, only council members are allowed into this room.
      It feels so weird being a women.
      I have such a hard time not staring at my own breasts, how do women manage not to do so all the time?
      I notice that I am wearing the same necklace Faye got me in the mermaid dream.

      Finally in the room, I sit down in what appears to be the council leaders spot on the Dei-ya side.
      Some of the Dei-ya are very surprised by this, but the only women who is in on it makes a sign that everything is alright.
      The council meeting is very straightforward. The opposite leader requires that we give up all lands and even retreat from the council.

      "That does sound like a rather unreasonable request."

      He's angry, he figured this would be easy, that there would be no resistance.
      I can feel that everyone besides me on the Dei-ya side is very scared.

      "Then what do you propose, woman?"
      "... How about you return all of the lands you have stolen from us, ain't that a more reasonable request?"

      Everyone in the room is shocked, and the opposite leader is furious, but that's exactly what I'm aiming for.

      "If only you Dei-ya had some guts, we'd settle this by a duel to the death!"
      "Should I consider this a challenge?"
      "... are you fucking serious?"
      "If you win, the world is yours, if I win, you go back where you came from and return what belongs to us."
      "... AHAHAHAHAHA you're a fool! I challenge you! Let's duel!"

      I feel bad putting the Dei-ya's world on the line, but they're about to loose it anyways, and I'm confident I can take him on.
      We step outside as he is immediately eager to kill me and settle this.

      "To the death!"
      "Tenjho Tenge!"

      Why did I say that? Is that a common thing to say before a duel?

      He immediately charges me with that stupidly large sword of his, and furry black wings drawn from his body.
      I can easily feel how strong he is, his aura is so easy to read.
      I concentrate a moderate quantity of divine energy into my left hand, thinking it would be too weird to awaken the dragon as a Dei-ya.
      Before he reaches me, I release the energy towards him and he is immediately thrown back.
      His sword shatters from the shockwave of the energy, and his wings burst into flames.

      Everyone is extremely surprised, no-one says a word.

      "I... I give up!"
      "Excuse me what now?"
      "I give up! You can have your lands back!"
      "And you call this a duel to the death? Are you kidding me?"
      "I... please have mercy!"

      Unbelievable. What a weakling.
      All tough when he knows there's no-one to resist him and as soon as he meets someone more powerful he starts crying like a kid.

      "Fine... declare your defeat."
      "I am defeated!"
      "Then begone."

      All of them leave. They aren't going to attempt anything for a long time.
      They always knew that nobody could stand up to them, but now that this is no longer true they're afraid, much more afraid than the Dei-ya are.

      One of the Dei-ya asks me:

      "Who are you?"
      "A friend of a friend."

      I say nothing more and leave, finally my turn to act all mysterious, I like it.
      Before I am able to meet back up with Yuya the dream fades away.

      *Tenjho Tenge is a manga/anime.
      It translates to "Heaven & Earth"
