    ~Summer Dreams~

    These are all of the lucids I've had since I went on vacation. It's good but I really need to get back on track with journaling, all of these have been high vividness but vanish so easily when I wake up. My ability to enjoy a lucid is high, but my recall is terrible. I definitely need to fix this....

    But in the meantime, dreams! It's been a while since I had some of these, so my apologies if my memory is a little shaky on them.

    Right before my eyes!! [DILD]

    The first thing I remember is hanging around my neighborhood. I was hanging out with a couple old friends, I believe a couple who I went to elementary school with, and we were staring at where the elementary school used to be and reminiscing. It had been replaced with a college campus, though in reality it still stands there. I became lucid when I separated from them, and I headed down the alleyway that leads to my house. The main thing I recall about the beginning of this lucid was that there were a bunch of DCs chasing me like screaming fangirls. They were all cute, somewhat chubby white girls. I was fighting one of them off near my garage and I decided that I needed some kind of weapon. I held out my hand as if I was holding something and just stared at it and visualized a wrench being there, and it faded into existence right before me! It wasn't really that useful to me though, I'm not exactly sure why I went with a wrench, so I just tossed it at her and ran back out into the open. On my way out I also tried to split my body in two and summon fire but I wasn't able to do either. I was also able to reach up to my face and remove a pair of glasses, twice without putting any back on, that increased the vividness of the scene each time.

    When I got out of the alleyway I was still being chased by the girl, she tried to jump me and I ended up accidentally groping her, but then I got away and she seemed to disappear. I turned down one of my neighborhood streets and saw this girl who looked like ML, that I knew all throughout public school also since elementary, but she looked almost like a porn star. Also, I have no earthly idea what this means, but in my phone notes at the end of that last part I added "and apparently it was an ongoing procedural thing." I believe I picked her up as I walked by her and started inviting her to my house, but then the dream faded away.

    Good thing we're not.... [DILD]

    I don't remember too much about this one. TB, a guy from elementary school, and some other guy were there, and at one point I was walking with this girl MH who people used to think we were related back in like first or second grade. I was thinking about making out with her, but then I realized that this all was odd and became lucid, but then I woke up.

    Hammerspace trial. [DILD]

    I was back in high school talking to M's friend C at the end of a class and the beginning of break, then I left to find someone else though I forget who now. All I know is that I was done with classes at that point. I became lucid while walking into a classroom and took off my backpack and randomly decided to just drop it through the floor so I could store it for later. When it actually worked and the floor swallowed it up, I got kind of distracted and decided to toy around with it a little more. I stuck my hand into the floor and tried reaching around for the bag but couldn't find it anywhere, so I pulled myself back out and tried to summon it directly into my hand like the wrench from before but I couldn't get that to work either, and since I focused so much on it the rest of the dream faded away.

    #1 - Acid carnival? [DILD]

    I was lucid outside at night at some kind of bizarre carnival. This whole section of the dream had a very strange psychotic feel to it. I was bursting with energy and the random chains of events happening around me were unfolding in a way that made me feel like I was in an acid trip. Everywhere I looked I had to fight off a good deal of sexual temptation to avoid getting too swept up into the dream and losing track of the lucid. The main ones I remember now are the barber shop girls and the girls getting their hair cut there, and then some beautiful performing girls including LK from middle and high school who wer just singing and dancing. There were also some weird guys here and there, and I specifically remembering sticking out my hand at one of them and yelling "Bang!" Other than that it's really hard to remember what all happened in this dream, it was very frantic and there was a lot going on.

    #2 - Maybe I'll just wait.... [DILD]

    This is an interesting dream to me because I'm pretty sure I accidentally incubated it while falling asleep due to what I was considering doing. I'm fairly certain the dream just kicked in with me lucid while walking down a hallway with the intention of masturbating. I seem to be in some kind of school or something and I come upon the bathroom so I head inside and notice that it's massive and there's a huge line of girls waiting inside, and even a few guys. I just decided to fuck the system and walk past the line all the way down to the end. I look in the stall and I try to throw this one girl out but she won't budge. She says something about seeing a "nasty phallus" or something like that, and then immediately holds up this suitcase with three fake but realistic and damaged-looking penises just sitting in it to show me. They looked like they were diseased and rotting or something, and it really grossed me out and I woke up.

    Sort of like being drunk in an out-of-body experience. How can you beat that? [DILD]

    The first of this lucid is hard for me to recall now which is annoying because I know it was cool, but mainly what I remember is starting out in some high up apartment building out in the hills somewhere and flying out and above a city scape for a while. I also saw this old abandoned building on the ground I was approaching at one point so I did a twirl in the air with the expectation that it would be inhabited when I turned all the way around and saw it again, and it was successful. When I got there I just flew around a bit and through walls to see what all there was to do, and I came upon this very attractive girl, just a little bit younger than me by the looks of it. I picked her up and just carried her in my arms with me for a little bit and got distracted talking to another DC or something. I can't remember what was said now, mainly because of what happened next. I focused back on her again and looked down at her body and noticed that she was completely naked. That combined with the fact that I was only somewhat lucid and already pretty horny, and my prefrontal cortex must have taken a big hit. I don't remember much about the next part other than basically becoming an animal. Seriously, I could get addicted to this. >.>

    The bummer though was one part when I looked up from my partner and noticed that we were being swallowed into some sort of pit of darkness that was taking the stability of the dream along with it. At the last second I realized that I hadn't been able to keep focus, but there was no time to try to save it before my awareness vanished.
    The dream became a third-person, non-lucid scene of a woman who was escaping some thugs or something by jumping out of a window of the apartment building from before and realizing she could fly too, and I saw us flying next to each other while I told her that we were in an astral projection together. Then, I suddenly had a false awakening in that same building. I got up and noticed that my parents were talking right outside my room, and figured that that was probably what woke me up. But after that I actually did wake up.

      Congrats again on keeping the LDs rolling while you were on vacation! I don't know what vacation was like for you, but I find that the combination of getting a little more sleep and all of the novel sights and stimulation is great for dreaming.

      The star of the show has got to be that "staring right at it" wrench summon. I haven't gone for one of those myself in a really, really long time. I'm a lot better with dream control than I was in those days but I've gotten so used to summoning by imagining and then looking that it's kinda always the only way I want to go. There's a strong tendency for me to want to cling to what's working, especially since these days summoning is usually the means to some other end that's my "real goal".

      But this kind of summon would be seriously awesome to pull off. Maybe I'll summon a drill or a hammer. I could use it for a Colosseum battle since I've never really had the problem of dealing with screaming LD fangirls.

      I'm glad that you remember as much as you do about these. Right after you wake up from them, it's hard to believe how quickly these super-vivid experiences might fade from your memory. I've become pretty uncompromising about at least getting rough but detailed notes written out as soon as I can. The hardest thing for me about LDing, though, is the fact that the emotions and images that you get when remembering these dreams are just shadows of the actual experience. You can hold onto the nuts and bolts of the what happened, but the memory of the experience is a mediocre substitute for the actual experience. It's the best we've got, though, at least in waking life!

      Good stuff... hope you keep this momentum going!

      Thanks! Yeah, it definitely had me going! I had all kinds of crazy dreams while we were gone, too bad I barely recorded any of them lol.

      Consider yourself lucky! Hehe, yeah, it was pretty awesome. =D I definitely get the idea of sticking to what works, it's hard to break out of that sometimes! It's nice when you take a shot at something new and it works though. =) That would be badass if you managed to summon something in a Colosseum battle though!! You'd better write about it if you do.

      It sucks, doesn't it? But yes, it is better than nothing! And it least you get to experience it in its entirety, even if it doesn't all come back with you. Hallucinogen experiences are the same way. It's a shame what amazing things our mind can do that it just can't record because they're too weird!

      And thanks again!

      And even though you're back, it sounds like you are hamstrung by your technology situation! Hopefully you've got some kind of way to record the LDs that I know you're continuing to have.

      Heh, if there's one thing I'm reliable about, it's getting insanely excited about each and every LD and writing it down. And an LD where I battle in the Colosseum? Oh yeah!! Pity that I've been trying on and off to have a Colosseum battle for the whole year, but hey, hope springs eternal. =D

      Yeah, you're right. This is the hard thing about great experiences of all types. You can only hang on to so much of them. The rest you just... borrow for a time, I guess. Good example with hallucinogens. Stories about those experiences always seem to have that aspect of it. Like the narrator is not only trying to make you understand it, but also struggling to regain their own understanding and memory of what they saw and felt, and somehow make it fit into the framework of what the mind in its current state can understand. Crazy.

      The only solution I know is to just keep having LDs as often as possible. Giving that my best shot.
