    non dream - lucid - non lucid

    I wake up after ~8 hours of sleep, but I still feel very tired.
    I decide to go back to sleep.

    I'm in what appears to be an hotel room, but instead of a bed there is a long desk with 4 PC monitors on it, and some audio equipment including 2 microphones.
    It seems that I am casting a SC2 tournament game from here. I wonder who my co-caster is.
    Day9? o_O That's kind of a surprise. But then I feel like we've known each other for a long time, and it's all normal.
    We cast a game between some well known player and a mouse. (Yes, an actual mouse... the animal >_>)
    After we're done casting (the mouse won) we discuss that this mouse is rather intelligent, and day9 compliments the high APM.
    I'm tired and I want to go to bed... I know we're at an hotel and I can sleep in the next room.

    I'm now in a bed in the next room, but I can't sleep.
    There's about 10 people sleeping in the room, which I find a bit weird and uncomfortable.
    I get up and decide to go for a walk.
    Another guy stands up at the same time, he's a friend from high school.
    We leave the hotel room, which leads straight into my old high school building.
    We walk through the main corridor and he lights a cigarette.
    He hands it to me and I start smoking, but then I realize I'm not a smoker, and the cigarette tastes horribly.
    I put out the cigarette on my hand, because I know it's not going to hurt and throw it into a trash can.

    Some official person from the high school sees this and gets insanely mad at me because smoking is forbidden inside the building.
    I tell him to relax, I'm not even in high school anymore.

    Then he gets even more angry saying I have no reason to be here.
    "But I sleep here!"
    He freaks out, "DO YOU THINK THIS IS A FUCKING HOTEL?"
    (yes)

    I'm now in front of the Hotel/School outside a small restaurant.
    Me and a few friends from high school are having dinner.
    I notice an odd yellowish liquid in my glass, what on earth did I order to drink?
    I take a sip and notice that the liquid has now attached itself to my lip, forming a string between my lower lip and the glass.
    What the fuck is this.
    I try to remove it by pulling on the string with my hand.
    The string just gets longer and longer.
    One of my friends starts laughing at me and explains it's a chemic reaction and some sort of prank. (he's studying chemistry and likes to do pranks in waking life)
    After I get it off I notice that I've just eaten a lot of stuff I don't usually eat.
    I wonder why I did that and stare up into the sky.
    It's night already, I can see the stars.
    Wait a second... I never ate this food, the dream skipped over it, I'm dreaming!
    I look back down to investigate the current scene.


    But when I look back down I notice I'm no longer at the restaurant.
    I'm alone, hiding in between some debris.
    I look around, the scenery feels post-apocalyptic, and reminds me of fallout.
    The streets are cracked, all buildings around appear to have been destroyed by explosions many years ago.
    Everything appears gray and sad.
    Above me is some sort of huge construct, only supported by a few thin pillars.
    Whatever it is, it is falling apart, debris is falling down, which is presumably why I hid in this corner in the first place.
    I hear voices screaming that the things is coming down and will explode, that everyone should make a run for it.

    I decide to make a run for it myself and start running uphill, not getting hit by any debris fortunately.
    Suddenly I notice an hotel to my left, of course, I was at that hotel.
    There are a few cars in front of it, and lots of people running away.
    Why does nobody use the cars?
    I spot a Continental GT and decide it's the fastest and most robust out of them and get inside. (I've driven one in waking life a few times)
    The keys are inside, lucky me.
    The passenger door opens and my dad gets inside "gogogo!"
    I start the engine and drive in reverse doing a 180 to point the car into the correct direction.

    I'm now in front of the street. All people are running to the left, uphill, but I can see the passage is blocked.
    To the right, downhill, is the construct which is falling apart.
    There's no way we'll make it going uphill, I decide to try to drive under the collapsing construct.
    I put the gearbox in manual because I don't like automatics and use the paddle shifters.
    I accelerate hard towards the construct.
    The pillars break, and the whole thing starts coming down.
    I press the accelerator pedal harder, knowing it won't make a difference, and hope to somehow make it.
    And we do, by a meter at most. The construct crashes into the ground right behind us.
    My dad tells me to keep going, the thing is going to explode.

    I drive as fast as I can, luckily the road is straight.
    Then suddenly there is snow on the road, and a corner up ahead... fuck!
    I hit the brakes hard, but the car is barely slowing down.
    I have to swing the steering wheel left and right wildly to prevent the car from spinning out.
    Still doing 220km/h, there is no way I'll be able to slow down enough for the corner.

    But then suddenly my sense of presence turns on, and I can feel what lies behind the corner.
    There is a canyon right behind it, meaning if I can't make the corner we'll fall into the canyon.
    On the other side of the canyon seems to be a salt desert.

    I get off the brakes and back on the accelerator.
    My dad freaks out. "What are you doing?"
    "Trust me..."

    I don't take the corner, I just drive straight into the canyon.
    I close my eyes, and concentrate on the other side of it, and try to lower it with dream control, so that we can make the jump.
    As I open my eyes again, I see that the other side stays perfectly leveled with he falling car, and we make it to the other side just fine.
    I see a massive explosion in the mirrors of the car...
