    1. 01.26.15 LD: Second Market

      by , 01-27-2015 at 02:45 AM (A Strange and Nonsensical Adventure)
      LD. Ran around place. Met lots of DCs. Forgot a lot of things. It's funny how my personal goal is to talk in-depth with a DC because my usual LDs are devoid of people, and then my brain starts throwing DCs at me... heh. Too bad everyone was in a hurry .-. Still haven't had that conversation yet.

      I'm in this city where there's snow and something is happening and apparently someone is also named Ivy and I am also. I end up climbing up walls sideways and then I start tossing vines to tree branches. I begin swinging on them faster and faster and then I end up in a place that looks like my neighborhood. At some point here I become lucid.

      I do an RC (nose pinch) and then start walking around, and the place becomes similar to Manhattan with the sidewalks and buildings.

      At some point I run into Castiel in his trenchcoat and all that (from Supernatural) and he's rounding the corner and I'm like "hey Castiel" and I don't remember what he says but it wasn't anything notable probably?

      I run into these two guys who tell me their names when I ask (McGebbers and Eddy) They're stereotypical goons. Apparently I saw their boss somewhere on some tv show or movie) but I can't remember what he's called now.

      I see this girl walking and think she's Emily so I go up to her and say "Hey Emily!" And she turns around and whoops she's not Emily. She starts going down this subway station but I call down to her and ask if she has anything interesting to tell/show me and she says something in response.

      While running around I run into these two men in suits and sunglasses. I ask them their names and they look at each other and one of them presses a gun to my head but I don't remember what they say. I escape unscathed, though.

      I get to this park or sth and see Noah. He's going somewhere but I pull him back and he's really light. I tell him that we're in a dream and he says, "Oh cool, is it my dream?"
      "Mine actually."
      "Huh."

      I also meet this serial killer somewhere? Or someone like Ted Bundy, only not Ted Bundy.
      I meet a lot of people but I'm starting to forget what's happening and I run into this wall with a list of "have you seen these people " sort of task list and I wish I had paper or something to mark them off. I realize I don't have my backpack with me, just my regular clothes. I think about conjuring up some paper but I don't. I read the lines and some of them mention "Elmo" and "McGebbers" and "Eddy".

      I go into this school but I change my mind since I don't want to be stuck inside for the rest of my dream and I turn back and of course the entrance is blocked off by a stone wall. So I go to the edge of it and dig my fingers in and pull, and I get out.
      Possibly see the night sky and stars and cliff?

      At one point I end up near these creepy windows with this thing peering out, like those movie posters where a creature is looking through a crack in the curtain and you can only see their eye. I just remember that it was creepy, though.


      When I wake up I'm in this FA where I imagine myself writing down the stuff in a Muji notebook and noting it as Second Market. Apparently I've met the two goons before and I've drawn one of their faces and it looks remarkably similar. I write about sleeping in and how it's like 1:30 pm. And then I fade back into reality, and it's actually 9:10am or so.

    2. Competition Night #14: LD Chain (Stargate, GLaDOS, Sniper Cats)

      by , 08-10-2014 at 01:49 PM (A Strange and Nonsensical Adventure)
      Day 14. See if I can't get some LDing going.
      0500:
      this girl in alabama is probably evil. Also the detectives don't trust the locals there.
      3 LDs! Through DEILD. RCS: nose plug, as usual.
      Sometime:
      I realize that I am dreaming. Start of the LD has to do with this guy who got into college. He's like 18. I'm tagging along with him, and I ask him how old I look. He says 13. I say that I'm actually 17, one year younger than him. He is surprised.
      At one point after that I end up softening the ground for some reason, maybe to soften my fall, and the ground starts sinking underneath me, so I put it back to normal. I use "VERB + NOUN" commands to do so. The guy asks me about it, and I answer him.
      I RC to double check again and I fly up and up and can see the college/museum spread out underneath me. It looks like a fancy government building in England, and it is absolutely beautiful. I remember the competition and decide to try some things out.

      Summary: There is a lot of walking/flying through this strange landscape that alternates from Grand-Canyon-esque (lots of rocks and stuff) to buildings and maybe even a town. I'm exploring this place and trying to do some tasks...
      Flying: I fly up a lot. I want to do a freefall. The first time, I manage to get high up but get stuck in this mountain thing. The mountain reminds me of minecraft. I eventually land on a ledge in the deep mountain crevasse and walk. The mountain is brightly lit and I eventually reach the outside. The second time (near the end), I manage to fly really up and then fall and hit the ground unhurt.
      I walk through this building. At one point the building is surrounded by sniper cats because cats have taken over the world. In that part I had grabbed a cat plushie for some reason and when I looked outside I saw cats with guns. There were people still inside the house and when they asked about the outside, I told them "militants" or some such.
      Stargate: I manage to find a Stargate (after a lot of exploring) and walk through it, though it turns into a Portal like thing. It doesn't seem like an actual Stargate. It activates on its own, and when I walk through it, I hear GlaDOS speaking and I get accelerated to this other side of the room with another gate. So two of them are connected in one room. Also there may or may not have been energy bursts.
      After the Portal thing: I come face-to-face with this weird monster thing and I freak out. I run through this building until I find a closet where there's a rack of metal pipes, and I hit the monster with it. It dies or disappears or something. I also hit someone else over the head as well. Can't remember who or why *shrugs*.
      Basic summoning: I find some people I know from a summer program and try to summon my friend and a girl appears that sort of looks like her but not really. So this probably doesn't count?
      After a while of this, I realize that I'm going to have to write everything down, and while I'm floating in the sky, I take out a piece of paper (from who knows where) to try to write down what tasks I did so I would remember. It doesn't really work.
      (Wait, does that count as summoning paper from the pocket? I wasn't thinking about summoning it, though... I just did it.)
      Had oral sex a few times, the horny teenager that I am It was really nice, considering I've never done that in real life.
      Oh, and I was wondering what it'd like to be a guy down there and managed to transform that part of my body... Hehe. It looked totally off though. Unfortunately.
      (Generally I would "wake up" after the whole sex thing but it would fade into an FA instead.)
      At random parts of the dream while I was walking/flying around, I heard random pop music that may or may not exist in real life. I went towards the music once or twice and found myself near buildings? Not sure.
      Don't think I managed to teleport. Or successfully summon something, for that matter.
      A few FAs or so. Did the nose plug RC, found that I could breathe, started to get a little worried because I wanted to wake up for real and write my dream down. Some of the FAs I was in bed with limited mobility, etc.
      Electronic device: At one point I used (or tried to use) a computer which had a really really pixelated screen. Was during one of the FAs but after I figured I was still dreaming.
      I think I saw a pikachu plushie at one point with a knife in its head. And a regular pikachu as well.

      Vividity: 8 - flying up and looking down felt real
      Length: really really long (at least 30 min)
      Lucidity: Varied (might have lost it a bit at some points)
      Stability: Pretty good. Had a close call when I started thinking about my body in bed and whether it would move... managed to focus back on the dream though.
    3. Dreaming 101

      Dreaming 101 (DILD)

      Forgot to post this a while ago. One of my favorite dreams.

      NON-DREAM DREAM LUCID

      0040 - I'm rushing to my college class. (Note: IRL, I'm not in college yet, but I don't notice this) I'm taking 5 courses at a time, as my schedule says, and one is on the 10th floor. At first I go up to the 8th or 9th with my friends, but realize that my class - D--- 101? is in 1029. Someone else and their mother is looking for the room as well, and notices me going there. I go in - it's a tiny entrance - find a seat, and sit down. I find out that we actually weren't supposed to be there, and that we were really lucky. I don't know what the class is about. The people in charge tell us to form groups of 5 or so, and everyone starts mixing together. I start panicking. I look around and see no one I can ask. I go up to this girl and ask, but she's doing some homework and says no. I look around again and Emily waves to me from across the room. I am relieved, and go sit down next to here. I say something about her saving my life and she laughs. Even so, I am disappointed in myself for not having made new friends in college. The people start talking, and it becomes apparent that we're supposed to "take a hit" of this substance. Me and Emily have never done drugs, and we don't want to. (Someone I know, possibly Emily, is sitting next to me) We get cups of this liquid gas and the person next to me decides to drink it, which we're not supposed to do. I inhale the gas, once, twice, imagine dropping into the ocean, and feel water all around me. I am asleep, and dreaming, and know that I am.

      I don't remember what happens next. I think I start exploring. Oh - the other person may have been Stephanie. I'm with her in the dream. We're in a city, and I keep jumping and flying up and up and up, and she grows really big. I reach this overhang/cliff and grab onto the building, but it's weak and can't support my weight. I notice the big drop down to the street below and the arrows pointing in a line underneath me and tell S that she can go through the tunnel underneath to see me do an awesome drop. She doesn't really want to, or doesn't care either way. Not sure. Anyway, I keep holding onto the building wih a hand or two and my body keeps jumping up or floating up - perhaps on its own, or I have to keep doing so for some reason. It feels like I'm in space or constant antigravity or something. Eventually I jump too far and my legs overbalance and I flip over the edge and fall down.

      It was realistic, I think. Fairly vivid. I fell down but I knew I could fly up, and so I did. It was somewhere around this point that I really realized that I was dreaming. I did an RC and everything. Things became clearer, more vivid without me trying. I fly around the city, looking at the cars, which weren't rendered properly, and we get up to the point up there. All the while, I remember the college course, and realize that it's about being about to control your dreams and trips and all that.
      When I meet Snape and crack my eyes open briefly in real life - or was it the college class? - I close my eyes immediately and imagine a well in the ground. A voice says, "Hover, don't drop," and I think I return to Snape and all that. New Yorkin' 2 on a billboard in rainbow letters somewhere in a city. Across the billboard there is another big poster, where the words all fluctuate. Snape is there, rather scary. Had to somewhat DEILD back in. He made a potion and reluctantly gives it to me, but says that if i take it, my other class will not be something. I decide not to take it.

      I decide that I've had enough of a cloudy, foggy atmosphere and fly up past the overpasses crowding the city. The sky is beautiful and rainbow and full of stars. For once I am truly excited that this is a dream. There may have been an airship. I looked at the cars, which looked wonky and all that. At some point, the dream ends.

    4. Nov 2 2013 - Trains, the Ghost Network, and Crappy Friends

      by , 11-02-2013 at 11:06 AM (A Strange and Nonsensical Adventure)
      (Part 1/2)

      0500 - Some other friends and I are riding trains through three countries. The last country is Italy, and one of the others may have been France. It was probably a weekend, because as we were traveling, T mentioned how I wasn't going to be able to finish my homework. I thought of Mr H and how I didn't have him anymore for history. The thought of homework filled me with that "ugh" feeling, though, so I stopped thinking about it.

      In the second country or so, I was on the platform with several other friends. We were trying to get on the train, but we were on different platforms. I leaped from one to the middle platform and thought how much easier it was now that I was older and bigger/taller. But then I tried to leap to the last platform and fell/got hit by a train. It seemed like I "respawned" in the same area, at pretty much the same time. We eventually succeeded in hopping around and getting on the train.

      After the second station/country, before me and T got to Italy, a taxi came and most of the group left in it, leaving me and T behind because we couldn't fit. I motioned with the thumb-and-pinky finger gesture (the one that means "call me") that they should give me a phone number so we could stay in contact, but they didn't understand me and just left. Me and T ended up taking another train to Italy, because we didn't know where they were going.

      The trains are occasionally filled with homeless and smelly people lying down on the seats covered with blueish blankets. In one of the trains in Italy - a sleek and gray thing, sort of similar to NYC's trains - there were several cars just filled with the homeless. We wandered around two of these cars before leaving (I apparently was expecting one of the homeless people to tell me if the seats across from him were dirty. Nearby was a guy dressed in a suit) and finding out that the train was part of the 'ghost network' (as labeled on a map nearby on the platform), which meant the trains were made of souls/ghosts coalescing into a semi solid material (how I knew that, I have no idea).

      The alternative, which was for normal humans, was near the front of the platform, and looked like it was underneath a guillotine/chopper like object, which were horizontal supports on the ceiling. The train itself was not a train, but several metal platforms chained together into a line, with little to no handholds/barriers. We didn't want to get on, because it seemed highly suspicious and would probably end up killing the passengers, but we had to move for some reason. I led the way, jumping past the train and onto the beams near the top of the entrance, past which were stone stairs leading down to a wide space (a station-like area?). We jumped to the rafters or the stone/metal supports that made up the top of the hall - for a moment it felt like I was going to fall or crash into the supports painfully - jumping and running and jumping. I was continually casting powerups, etc. One point, T nearly slipped and fell, but I grabbed her by the leg and hauled her back up.

      We took off our shoes and continued running along just in socks. On the wall there were screens showing facebook-like posts and comments, one of which involved doing badly on tests and LH. Next to my replies, it showed what I really typed then erased and sent. That part involved some text like "CLACK CLACK CLACK CLACK S H E", the clacks standing for backspace, with your original message without edits underneath. It also said "you're seeing this because you typed this."

      Near this part, T and I backed up against a wall/slanted support so that T was bracing against the support and I was somehow pushing off of her. (I think my position looked like the one you use in swimming when you're pushing off the wall.) I had wings, so after I pushed off, I swooped around with my wings some more, until they timed out and I started dropping. I'm not sure what I did when that started happening, but I woke up afterwards.
