    I'm hanging out in Haven with Yuya and Liv, but the dream isn't very vivid and I feel groggy.
    We're standing at some table, and I don't really know what's going on. How did I get here again?
    I'm not feeling adventurous at all, which is weird.

    Yuya notices this and approaches me.
    I feel uneasy and nervous as she is standing very close to me.

    She gives me a kiss on my cheek.
    Suddenly, I feel the urge to breathe, as if I had forgotten to do so for the past few minutes.
    As I breathe in, I get a massive shock of vividness and awareness.
    Colors become vibrant and burn into my eyes. I start to hear what is going on around me.
    It feels like every nerve in my body just turned on, I can feel everything!
    As if I was in a coma, and somebody just woke me up.
    I knew I was in Haven, I knew I was with Yuya and Liv, but it is only know that I truly realize what this means.
    I've experienced this sensation a few times, but it remains as impressive as the first time.

    "Holy shit!"
    "Indeed."

    Yuya laughs.
    I look at my hands, I can feel every single tiny hair on my hand and fingers, as the wind gently brushes through them.
    I quickly investigate my surroundings because I'm hearing music.
    The 3 of us are standing at a table with different drinks on it. There are other tables with other people as well, it appears that we're at some kind of party or celebration.
    There's a band playing many different string instruments, so that's where the music is coming from.
    I really like the music, it's mostly cinematic music, very dramatic, but also full of energy and very pleasant.

    Yuya hands both Liv and me drinks, they look like shots.
    Liv doesn't seem to trust her drink, she's investigating it carefully.
    Yuya and I pour ours down. It burns a bit in my throat, the drinks are very strong.
    But they're very good. Liv finally drinks a shot as well and seems quite surprised.

    "What wonderful liquid is this?"

    Yuya and I have to laugh, and we continue having a good time and having drinks. Liv is such an innocent girl.
    I clearly feel that I'm getting drunk, and I do so faster than I should.
    After just 3 shots I can already clearly feel the effect, but the dream remains extremely vivid.

    "Yuya... how come dreams feel more real than waking life?"

    She smiles.

    "In waking life, it feels like I'm on autopilot the whole time. I do not see the beauty of my everyday life, everything seems boring and normal even though it really isn't."
    "Why does it feel like I'm asleep in waking life and awake in my dreams... awake right now?"

    After some thinking Yuya replies.

    "In waking life, you are busy thinking about a million things at the same time."
    "You might not realize most of what's going on, but you subconscious continuously tries to solve all the problems of your life."
    "There is simply not enough room to think about your surroundings the way you do right now."

    As always, Yuya's explanation makes a lot of sense, but I still feel like I'm missing something.

    "Well... I simplified it quite a bit... it is quite complex, I don't know how to put it in words..."

    She puts her drink down and puts her hands around my neck. She then presses her forehead against mine an closes her eyes.
    Our thoughts merge for a second and I catch a glimpse of the proper explanation.
    But I can't understand it, it feels like it goes beyond the limits of my imagination.
    I do understand the conclusion though, and I feel like it makes more sense now.

    As Yuya opens her eyes I get lost in their beauty.
    I'll never get used to such beauty, to such infinite detail.
    Usually, I'd start feeling insecure and look away, because I know I'm streaming my thoughts towards Yuya, and she'll immediately realize that I'm thinking about how beautiful she is.
    But I'm drunk, and I keep looking for a bit as she smiles...

    "I feel funny!"

    Both of us look back at Liv, she seems to have had quite a few shots while we were distracted.

    "Liv, are you drunk?"
    "Huh? I don't know."
    "Have you never had any alcohol?"
    "Uuuuuh, I don't think so?"

    You can tell by the way she moves that she's really drunk.
    I have trouble avoiding to laugh out loud, but I got a funny idea.

    "Liv, tell us a funny story!"

    Yuya is about to crack up.

    "I'm way too insecure to tell you anything shameful!!!"

    But she continues anyways.

    "So... you know how I seduce people in their dreams to leech some of their energy?"
    "Well... see, when a succubus seduces someone, she awakens the natural sexual urges within that person, but blocks out the thought of having sex..."
    "This way you get lost in a state where you're extremely aroused, but you won't do anything..."
    "But err... apparently not everyone is... interested in the same things?"
    "There was this guy, about a year ago... he casually started to get his dick out... I thought I had forgotten to block his sex thoughts at first... but I didn't!"
    "He proceeded to try to FUCKING PEE ON ME. I mean, can you believe this shit?"
    "What is wrong with people???"

    This is too much.
    Yuya and I burst out laughing. We both have to hold on to the table to avoid falling to the ground.
    Liv, the shy succubus, that fact alone is funny enough as it is, but hearing her tell this story because she's drunk, it's just too funny.
    All three of us can't stop laughing... I can feel the dream fade away, but I can't stop.

      Aha! Liv's story was a crackup!

      It's interesting though, the way Yuya shows you things. The clarity you write your dreams, the way they all continue and the fact that you lucid so often is incredible, and so inspiring

      Was it an image you saw, when she pressed her head against yours? Or just.. thoughts? It really fascinates me, thanks for sharing!

      It wasn't an image or words, it was a pure thought.

      For example, if you think about the concept of gravity. You do not think about it in words or images, you just know what it is.
      Even though gravity is something very complex, the thought of gravity can be very simple, like you're parsing all your knowledge about gravity in a split second and this results in a short feeling.
      This is pretty much what it felt like, if this explanation makes any sense.

      That description made perfect sense, I can't imagine how incredible it must be going through such a massive experience in your dreams, I'm extremely jealous

      Has it changed the way you think and feel in waking life? The concepts and experiences above the limit of most human understanding you experience on a regular basis is incredible!

      Well, I wouldn't describe these experiences as something that is above the limit of most human understanding.
      But yes, they have changed a few things about the way I think and feel in waking life.
      I'm definitely more aware of my everyday life, and I am able to appreciate some things that I just ignored before.
      I look at things, I do not just run past them.
      I also feel like I incorporate more unconventional/new ideas when I design games.
