    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. Talking bird

      , 06-27-2013 at 06:43 PM (Hyu's Adventures)
      Trying to post stuff again.
      I think I'll write down dreams related to the templar story first, because I really want to have that stuff written down properly, so I figure I might as well start there.
      I'll get to more current dreams after that.

      My vision normalizes as my naked feet gently touch down in the sand. I'm on a beach.
      I am somewhat blinded by the reflection of the sun on the near white ground.
      It is very hot; I can clearly feel the pressure of the heat on my skin.
      There's a lot of noise. People running into the ocean. Kids playing ball.
      Music coming from god knows where. People seem to be partying.

      All in all it feels rather uncomfortable. It isn't the heat or the noise though.
      I'm not in a good mood. I don't feel like being surrounded with joy right now. It just doesn't feel right.
      Now where's that fucking bird... yes... of course. At a bar talking to some girls.
      Where else would he be?

      He's a rather interesting creature. You don't meet many talking birds, and this one definitely has an attitude.
      This one is pitch black with a single red feather in his tail, which I think he dyed that color.
      It looks kinda cool actually, but he is a little full of himself. He also talks a lot.

      As I approach the bar the girls leave giggling. He probably told them one of his famous stories.
      I sit on the bar stool closest to him.

      "What the- Hyu!"
      "The fuck are you doing here mate? Did you bring Yuya? Where is Yuya?"
      "What is it with you? Always only interested in the girls."
      "What is it with you always calling me Crow?"

      "You remind me of a talking bird going by that name."
      "Uhuh? And who would that be? Are you making fun of me?"
      "Crow helped save the worlds of Stark and Arcadia dear friend. He's a hero."

      But that's not why I'm calling you Crow.

      "Stark and Arcadia? I've never heard of such worlds."
      "They're- worlds in another realm."

      Or rather in a video game, but I feel like leaving out that detail.

      "So, what brings you here? I've never seen you around here."

      I pick up his drink because it is rather curious looking.
      Further inspecion reveals that whatever it is, it has a rather acrid smell to it.
      I put it back down.

      "I'm looking for you actually."

      His eyes widen.

      "Who- me?!"
      "Yes, you. I'd like to ask you for a favor."

      He looks a bit confused... or... at least I think he does. It is rather difficult to read the facial expressions of a bird.

      "I need to locate an aura."
      "You humble me. I am fairly skilled at tracking auras, but I highly doubt that I could find someone that you cannot."
      "You see, the problem is not that I am unable to do the tracking myself. The issue is that I'm quite unfortunately being tracked myself, so I do not wish to reveal myself."
      "Hyu- are you in trouble?"
      "You have no idea friend."
      "Wait. Seriously?"


      "It's pretty bad, can you help me out?"
      "Yes! Of course!"
      "There's a catch."
      "I- I'm not entire sure what it is I'm looking for. I'll have to see what you see."
      "You want to use the dragon eyes on me..."
      "Shit- bugger- fuck-"
      "You okay?"
      "Yes, yes. Follow me. I know a quiet spot."

      He knows what's coming for him. I must have used the eyes on him in the past... I think?
      I follow Crow into some sort of small tent.
      He lands on a pedestral and I kneel down in front of im to get our eyes leveled.

      "Are you ready?"
      "No! Of course I'm not ready you moron."
      "Go ahead. Just please- try not to kill me."
      "Any danger is entirely up to you."
      "Yes yes. Don't resist. I know, I know. Let's just get this over with."

      It is fairly safe to use the dragon eyes on someone as long as they do not resist.
      Clearly the sharing of minds is not what the ability is intended for though.
      It is a rather intrusive ability, and it goes against your basic instincts not to resist against it.
      I stare into his pitch black eyes. He seems fairly relaxed which is good. This shouldn't hurt him.
      I force myself into his mind using the dragon eyes. My vision fades.
      The first thing I feel is fear and discomfort.
      I can't blame him for that. It must be immensely uncomfortable to have someone intrude your mind like this.
      Fortunately I feel no resistance from him at all. His self-control is rather commendable.

      "You're doing well crow."

      A new scene appears.

      A shared hallucination caused by the usage of the dragon eyes.

      "This place gives me the creeps."
      "Well. There ain't no girls in bikinis dancing about."
      "No shit."

      Well then. Time to see if that feeling is merely a delusion or if there is actually something behind it.

      "Alright. Reach out as far as you're comfortable with. I'll try to guide your search."

      I attempt to visualize whatever presence Crow feels as points of lights in front of me.
      To my surprise, the only image that pops up is that of two rather largely breasted girls wearing bikinis.
      The girls he was talking to at the bar earlier...

      "Crow... focus!"
      "But dear friend. I'd say that I am rather focused. Are you not impressed by how clear this memory is?"
      "Dude... seriously?"
      "The image... so clear and crisp... mmmmh."
      "... This is really not the time for-"
      "Boobs? There's always time for boobies!"
      "Pervert? You morbid cunt!"
      "A morbid what now?"
      "You heard me. Lousy, moronic fuckwit."

      *Sigh* That bird likes to curse.

      "I'm waiting for an apology!"

      This is the point where I'm supposed to call him an incompetent and imbecilic waste of natural selection.

      "Sorry... I'm really not in the mood for this."
      "You... I..."
      "Are you done? I really need to figure this out."
      "Well... yes... sorry..."

      I think he finally understands that this is serious.
      I'm not blaming him for not taking me serious immediately though.
      It's not like I'm known as a serious person. I like messing about. But today is different.

      After a surprisingly short amount of time, Crow manages to focus on something that matches what I'm looking for.
      I underestimated him. This was quite fast, especially considering the nature of what I'm searching for.

      "Eeehm. The fuck is this? This is not a person?"
      "Also where is this? This doesn't feel like a proper location. Something's off. Did I do it wrong?"
      "Hmm... I'm not entirely sure where this is, or what it is that you have found. But I'm fairly certain that you have found exactly what I'm looking for."

      This is very odd indeed. I know exactly what he means when he says that something's off. Something doesn't feel quite right, but I am uncertain as to why.
      I can focus on any point close to the location, but not the very location itself.
      It should also not have been possible to find anything using merely a vague feeling as a guide.

      "Crow. I'm going there right now."
      "That doesn't seem safe. Do you have any idea what to expect? I mean, you're not even sure what you're looking for."
      "I'm tagging along."
      "Huh? Why is that?"

      After releasing Crow from my eyes, I have him sit on my shoulder and teleport the both of us to some point in close proximity to the location we've found...
      lucid , memorable
    2. The abandoned city of Jupiter (Totm)

      , 06-08-2011 at 02:35 PM (Hyu's Adventures)
      I'm at home, programming for one of my current projects.
      I have a bit of trouble getting something to work, that doesn't appear to make much sense.
      I quickly realize that what the problem itself is complete nonsense.

      Yep, I'm definitely dreaming.

      I notice I've also been programming in chrome in stead of visual studio, how weird.
      I see the "Dreamviews" tab is still open, so I click on it wondering if there'll be anything special.
      Unfortunately I get an error trying to access the page:

      "Error 000: You are not awake"

      I stand up and take a closer look at my room, trying to let the dream settle in and to figure out what to do.
      I'll try the advanced Totm again. I'll go to Jupiter! But this time I'll do it right, not like last time...
      After I feel that the dream is stable and that I am thinking clearly, I draw my phoenix wings and try to reach out to Jupiter with my mind.
      It's pretty easy, and I immediately find the big red spot, great!
      I take a step through the fabric of space, teleporting a few 100 meters over the red spot of Jupiter.

      I immediately start falling. Yeah... gravity, how did I not think of that?
      Jupiter is huge! When I look at the horizon I cannot see any curvature, it's perfectly straight, as if it would be a plane of infinite size.
      There is no sound as I fall, but I understand that is because I haven't entered the atmosphere yet.
      Obviously I can't hear anything in the void of space.

      I know I'll hit the outer atmosphere any second now, I can see the red layer of gas approaching very rapidly.
      It looks like an absolutely massive tornado, reaching for possible thousands of kilometers, and I'm falling into the very center of it.
      As soon as I hit the first clouds I can hear a massive thunderstorm. It is very loud, and it never stops growling.
      I see lightning flashes everywhere, so I draw a protective bubble around myself, which lessens the pressure I feel all over my body and the intensity of the sound.
      Although the smell is very faint, it smells a bit like an orange? How weird, I would have expected something more like sulfur.

      I descend through many layers of clouds, and the intensity of the storm decreases as I go deeper.
      Suddenly, a pocket in the clouds appears. There's a biodome floating in the middle of it!

      I realize that I will hit it pretty hard if I don't slow down and instinctively summon my wings in order to do so.
      Although I do slow down quickly I won't stop in time, but I know that's not a big issue.
      Just before hitting the outer wall of the biodome I simply blink through it and end up on the other side.
      I slow down and land on a big greenfield next to a sea.
      The air tastes and smells very fresh, you get that sort of salty taste as if you're standing on the beach of a big ocean.

      I was hoping to meet the inhabitants of this biodome, but it seems this place has been abandoned a long time ago, how unfortunate.
      But I'm quite happy that I managed to do this and that I found something rather interesting.
      I want to do the basic task as well, but I'm afraid to loose the dream if I go back to earth.
      But then it strikes me, the basic task should be easier than the advanced one... I'll just summon a shipwreck right here.
      My back is turned towards the sea, so as I turn around I expect there to be a shipwreck, and there is.
      It's right under the water surface on the beach. It's an old wooden pirate ship.

      I wonder if I can blink into water? Ah, what the hell, I'll just try.
      I look at the ship and blink. OUCH!
      Well, the good news is it works. The bad news is it feels like running head on into a brick wall.
      I dive into the wreck, searching for a treasure chest.
      It gets quite dark which I dislike, I know going into darkness can end dreams.
      But then I find a wooden treasure chest... except... it's really really small.
      It's maybe 10 by 10 centimeters, but it looks like a royal chest with jewels and everything on it.

      I open it up, hoping to find something amazing.
      As it opens, a few faint light rays emerge from it... woah!
      Inside of the chest I find... well... a wooden Yo-Yo.
      What the fuck? Seriously? What kind of treasure is that?
      My vision slowly becomes darker and then blacks out.

      I decide not to try to stabilize it and wake up instead to take notes.
    3. Taking KristaNicole to Teraluna

      , 05-03-2011 at 02:53 PM (Hyu's Adventures)
      I'm trying to exit my room, but for some reason, opening the door requires an abnormal amount of force.
      I realize that I'm dreaming and the door suddenly gives in and acts normally.
      Ha, how weird.

      For some reason I remember one of KristaNicole's recent DJ entries, where she RC'ed by counting her fingers.
      I never do that, I wonder if my finger count would be correct?
      I look at my hands, and although they look normal, I do count 6 fingers on my left hand.
      Wait.... what am I doing? I should try to visit her!

      I summon my phoenix wings and search for her aura, which surprisingly, I find immediately.
      I take a step through the fabric of space and find myself in an unknown building.
      At first I have a feeling that I don't belong here, but it immediately goes away.
      I look around trying to find Krista.

      I notice that my surroundings make little sense, something is just off.
      When I look at a shelf, then away, and back to the shelf, it looks completely different.
      I'm getting distracted again... I try to sense Krista's presence and approach it.
      Then I finally spot her behind some sort of desk, but it changes shape whenever I don't concentrate on it.

      I understand that this is the shop she has mentioned a few times in her DJ.
      She's dreaming, but she most likely isn't lucid.
      I approach her, wondering how I should make her become lucid.
      I think about projecting the thought directly into her head, like I do with Yuya sometimes, but it feels wrong, like it would be invading her privacy.
      For some reason I also feel that I can't just tell her she's dreaming, she has to figure it out on her own.

      As I stand in front of her, she looks at me and clearly finds my appearance quite weird.
      No wonder, I'm just wearing loose white pants and nothing else.

      "Can I help you?"
      "Hi Krista."
      "... do we know each other?"
      "Of course we do... even though we have never met."
      "It's weird, isn't it, you didn't even see me come in."
      "... err"

      I hold out my right hand.

      "How would you like to go on an adventure with me?"

      Krista looks at her hands. Yes! she's doing an RC.
      She looks back at me astonished, then she looks at my hand, clearly pondering whether or not she should take it.
      I act all confident, like I knew exactly what I was doing just now to make her become lucid,
      even though I had no idea what I was doing, I just went with what felt right.

      To my surprise, Krista then walks straight through the desk between us, and grabs my hand.
      I summon my wings again, and take us both to Teraluna.

      For some reason we end up in a lookout spot, at the top of Haven. You can see the whole city from here.

      "Welcome to Teraluna."

      Krista looks at the two suns, the planet Teraluna is orbiting, and finally at the city beneath us.
      She's wearing different clothes now, more comfortable ones, though I cannot remember what she was wearing before.
      For some weird reason I feel the urge count my fingers, because I feel that the count wouldn't be off now that I'm here.
      5 on the left, 5 on the right, everything seems perfectly clear...
      What am I doing...?

      I look at Krista, she's still staring at the city. I wonder if it looks anything the same for her as it does for me.
      She looks back at me, and I notice the incredible amount of excitement in her face.
      I want to calm her down, I know I lost quite a few dreams by getting overexcited, but I don't know how.


      She vanishes in front of my eyes.
      I should probably have warned her about getting too excited...

      I feel happy that I remembered one of my goals, and that I was able to make Krista become lucid.
      I wonder if any of this really happened, even though right now I know it did.
      But I also know that I probably won't believe it anymore once I wake up.
      I realize that I have asked myself this question too many times, and it is a waste of time because it cannot be answered.

      I try to meditate but I wake up.
    4. In the clouds, trying to visit KristaNicole

      , 04-01-2011 at 05:57 PM (Hyu's Adventures)
      This was quite an intense night.
      I had 3 non-lucid dreams prior to this.
      Unfortunately those were followed by a FA in whom I took notes in my DJ and went back to sleep.
      I can't remember any specifics about them.

      Then I had these 2 dreams and took notes in my DJ again.
      When I woke up I checked my notes to see if this was a FA as well. The page in my DJ was blank and I was pissed.
      It turns out I must have flipped the page after taking notes though, because when I got home from uni,
      I was quite happy to find I actually did take the notes when I flipped one page back.

      I am hovering over some clouds. Cool, I'm dreaming again!
      I try to land on the cloud below me which works.
      I look around trying to spot something interesting whilst yelling out to see if someone is there.
      Then I spot some kind of structure to my left and approach it.
      It seems like someone build a few wooden houses ontop of these clouds.
      A person approaches me and says hi.
      He introduces me to two of his friends, once of them is named Kiwi.

      "Kiwi is a cool name, I like it!"

      The other person jumps ontop of me and makes spider noises (like the ones in minecraft).

      "I'm a minecraft spider!"
      "That's... great I guess?"

      I am now with Kiwi on top of his wooden house.
      He points into a direction and mumbles something about a city.

      "Do you want to fight?"
      "A friendly fight, just for fun."
      "Are you a dreamer?"
      "What are you doing here anyways?"
      "I started out here."
      "I see."

      He looks at me.


      and disappears. That was weird.
      My vision fades. I decide to focus on not moving and wait it out.

      I wake up but manage not to move and even keep my eyes closed.
      Nice! I'm confident I'll enter another LD within a few seconds.

      I'm back in the clouds, but everything from my previous dream is gone.
      There are no more structures and no more people.
      I hover around a bit, rubbing my hands against eachother, and suddenly I think clearly.
      What the hell am I doing hovering around? I should make use of this DEILD!
      I summon my wings, which I decide to call phoenix wings from now on and lock onto Yuya's aura.

      I feel like she's not on Teraluna so I try to communicate with her using my thoughts.
      For some reason I feel like it would be rude to just teleport to her when she isn't home.

      "Yuya? Can you hear me?"
      "Can I visit you?"
      "Of course! ... Actually... wait!"

      I guess I'll just wait.
      Can I wait in a dream? just like that?
      I notice an air pocket next to me that seems distorted.
      It looks like half of a bubble.
      Is that a portal...?

      Right as I try to investigate it, the bubble bursts and Yuya falls out of it, straight into my direction.
      I catch her mid-air.
      She starts laughing. I can feel that she feels a bit stupid for falling out of a portal like that even though
      she is very experienced with portals.

      Her hair is brushing against my body. She's so beautiful.
      She looks into my eyes... endless blue...
      I suddenly realize I'm still holding her... awkward...
      I gently let her go. She is amused that I feel awkward about stuff like this.

      Yuya looks around.

      "How did you get here?"
      "Uuh, my last dream started here I guess. Where are we?"
      "On the frontier of the Dream Plane... I've never been here."
      "I met a person called Kiwi before, I think he might be a dreamer."
      "You're forgetting something!"
      "I am?"

      Right! KristaNicole!

      "She's looking for a Dream Guide. Do you think we can help her find one?"
      "Hmm, I'm not sure, but it's worth a try."
      "Let's go meet her!"

      I notice I still have my wings summoned.
      I hold my left hand out and close my eyes.

      "How do I find her aura?"
      "How have you found mine?"
      "Just think about her, how you feel when you think about her. That's what her aura will feel like."

      I search through the void, or maybe the dream plane, I'm not really sure where I'm searching when I do this.
      I think of KristaNicole's Forum Avatar, about the first DJ entries that pop into my head.
      It takes a few seconds, I notice we're really far out.
      Then suddenly I find her. I'm sure it's her.
      For some reason I'm really calm. Last time I tried sharing a dream I was extremely nervous and it caused a lot of problems.

      Yuya holds onto me. Off we go!
      We step through the fabric of space...

      (I can only barely remember the next fragment)

      ... I'm on a road I think?
      ... Something is happening around me.
      I spot KristaNicole walking past us. Can she see me?
      ... I approach her to say hi.
      I wonder whether I should call her Krista or Nicole...
