    Another Night: Best of Jabre's Dream Journal

    'Another Night' follows the various story arcs and recurring themes of my dreams. Selected dreams from my childhood are displayed here as are my current, normal dreams.

    1. The Murderous Cars Tend to Return

      by , 04-06-2013 at 01:06 AM (Another Night: Best of Jabre's Dream Journal)

      1. I am lucid in a house. In the dream, I gain the belief that it was a house built by and for shared dreamers to meet in. I walk outside in the rain as my lucidity weakens. The dream becomes unstable. The setting changes.

      2. I walk to school while it is raining. We are instructed to jog around the school. At the end, I walk up to the attic to get more water for the students, but someone else is there. He is a teacher and raping a female student. She is passed out. Another girl walks into the attic and sees it too. He catches us, and makes us promise not to tell. We find a secretary later and tell her against his commands. Before he is arrested, he finds us and threatens us. We run away from him, and he is holding a knife.

      3. The scene changes again back to the rainy setting as I walk to school. I am in the gymnasium, gaining full lucidity after guiding my little sister to an exit. I walk with her through the crammed boarding of the passageway out, but the thunder causes the wall to splinter, cracking my sister's head open with the forceful gashes of wood. At that, I experience a spike in clarity, followed by a total collapse of the dreamscape. I give up my lucidity in the hope that I can continue the narrative untouched by my consciousness. Five interns were killed because of the teacher escaping from the police car, and relieving homicidal rage. Then, as I am walking to school after my sister's funeral, I am cut off by a woman grieving about the death of her husband, an intern. She blames me for telling the secretary about the rape. Then she leaves, and a narrator describes the events of the dream. He describes everything as it happens in a poetic manner. I am apprehended by the driverless cars from another dream. They are less violent this time, but they stalk me across the block. When I reach the end, the narration stops, and one of the cars drives up onto the sidewalk, but instead crashes. The woman appears in the car now. She is dying. She says she will pursue me until I die. I sprint to the school, but I hear the army of cars behind me. I outstretch my arm to the gate, and the front car turns driverless once again.

    2. Crystals and Badges

      by , 04-06-2013 at 12:29 AM (Another Night: Best of Jabre's Dream Journal)

      1. My school orders us all to make beautiful and elaborate designs for the new architecture of each classroom.

      2. I am either an FBI agent or a friend of one. Me or my friend is talking to a convict who broke his parole. A birthday party is going on in the park. I un-cuff him and say something that angers him. He takes a knife and slices the large, elaborate bouncy house. The exit zipped up. Instead of going after the criminal, I jump, unzip the bouncy house, and enter to save the kids. I get all of them, and forensics checks it. They deflate it totally to ensure the absence of bodies. But then, when it is used again in its inflated form, the bloated body of a pregnant woman slides out.

    3. "It's Simple; You Just... Wake Up!"

      by , 04-02-2013 at 10:21 PM (Another Night: Best of Jabre's Dream Journal)

      1. I am being picked up from school, talking to a teacher about a book with a hedge maze scene. I then drive home.

      2. I wake up on the couch and assumed I was sleepwalking. I hurry to go back to bed. It is actually a false awakening.

      3. I falsely awaken into another dream. I am in the hedge maze from the book of the previous dream. Remembering that causes me to become lucid. I see people running from an entity through the hedges and jumping down a chute to safety, as if it was a floating island. I follow them and jump.

      4. I awaken in computer class. I must have fallen asleep. I drone out the teacher. I remember the dreams before, and immediately recognize that I am dreaming. Not wanting to be bound there for the rest of the dream, I run into the hall and close my eyes and jump as far as I can. I fall through the floor. The school appears to be floating. I can see the complex's skeleton only in the form of clouds as I fall. I am expecting to wake up.

      5. I awaken in a bedroom I have never seen before. I run to the living room of an unfamiliar house, and my family explains that we have moved. They are worried by my memory loss. My grandfather has to move in with us, and we bought a dog. I suspect that I might still be dreaming because the whole scenario seems unlikely. Then, when I am in the backyard, I see a man outside staring into our house. He hops the fence. I am worried, so I hide. I climb a branch to an open window of my house to try to get out of the yard. However, I am suddenly convinced that I am still in the dream and that the entire thing had been a false awakening. I wake up.

      6. I falsely awaken, but this time I am prepared. I end up in this post-apocalyptic city that I remember from another dream. Looking back on it, I think it was Etcia. I go to the supermarket to steal some candy since it is only a dream. I decide to bring a DC. I eat the candy (flavors express nicely in dreams) and I finally wake up for good.

    4. News From Zombie Island

      by , 04-02-2013 at 09:50 PM (Another Night: Best of Jabre's Dream Journal)

      1. I am lucid and in a church filled with people. I go outside to walk home, and I summon a car. A girl DC comes running towards me saying something. "What's wrong? Zombies?" I say to her.

      "Yeah. And Clay," she responds. I don't know what she means by this, but I think she meant golems. She gets in the car and warns me to throw all of the trash out of it and to just drive away from the Church. She gets in the front seat. We drive away, but she doesn't feel safe. She gets out of the car and many vehicles speed past her, intentionally hitting pedestrians. She runs to get back in for her safety, but a bus stops between us, cutting her off. I get out of the car to help her, and we agree to meet up at the next block. We run with the driverless cars trying to hit us, but I am scared a car will come up on the sidewalk. The road is hectic now, and I cannot see the DC. I lose lucidity.
      Many cars crash into each other in feud. I reach the corner with our car now long gone. I cannot find the girl. I am isolated, on the sidewalk, of the traffic jam. I see the DC, and she runs maniacally to try to get to the sidewalk, but the cars drive to her, flinging her into a parking lot, dead.

    5. Post-Move Dream Canon (The Incubus Returns)

      by , 04-02-2013 at 06:21 PM (Another Night: Best of Jabre's Dream Journal)

      1. I am outside on the streets. at the edge of the fog stands a humanoid figure. I run up the stairs due to fear, and pound on the door. It is locked. I turn around, and the figure is directly behind me.

      2. I have a dream of someone knocking on the door. I know it's a dream, and I remember how the Incubus would do the same thing. The door busts open. I remember the rules; if I wasn't in bed and asleep by the time he came, the Incubus would kill, and I would wake up. I rush to my bed, and pretend to be asleep.

      3. It happens again, but this time he changes the rules. I have to set up a card game, and get back to bed in time. This time he gets me.

      4. Assured that the nightmares would plague me, I decide to come to terms with it. I am stuck in a series of lucid false awakenings in which he gets me each time. Once, I see him at the bottom of the stairs. I run up the stairs as fast as I can, but my leg gets stuck on a bungie cord on the doorknob. I decide not to be afraid anymore. I manipulate patterns of light to throw him down the stairs. As he falls, I see his true form; my father. I use my telekinesis to bash his head against the car in the garage. I don't stop. I awaken, relieved and enlightened, free of what had haunted my sleep for a decade.
    6. Post-Move Dream Canon (Etcia)

      by , 04-02-2013 at 06:07 PM (Another Night: Best of Jabre's Dream Journal)

      1. I leave Plea, finally. I see a bay. I am lucid and confused.

      2. I am in a town that I have never been to before in my dreams. I am confused, and I am in a graveyard. Someone climbs out of their coffin and tells me that it is a dream. I realize that the man is Tibb in human form. He explains to me that this town, Etcia, is a new location in my dreaming mind. Then I remember being in Etcia overlooking the Marsh. Tibb said that it formed from that one clay palace. He pushes a grave, and there is a hole in the ground. He explains his secret passageway. There is a tunnel lined with bricks, and water flows down it. We plummet to the bottom with the water, but I forgot what he showed me there.

    7. Post-Move Dream Canon (Plea)

      by , 04-02-2013 at 05:54 PM (Another Night: Best of Jabre's Dream Journal)

      1. I am in a quiet suburban town. The majority of the houses are painted pink. So is the sky. I notice something very strange about it, but I cannot say what.

      2. My family moves to Plea. The sky is always pink, but right before something bad happens, it turns red. I wake up in the middle of the night and open a closet door. There are walls of broken baby dolls in there. One of them blinked. They eat me alive, and I wake up for real this time.
    8. Post-Move Dream Canon (Grimilia Strikes)

      by , 04-02-2013 at 05:30 PM (Another Night: Best of Jabre's Dream Journal)

      1. I am at my elementary school at night. I am outside, and I am lucid. I walk to the border, but a mysterious figure in the fog blocks me. I get the feeling that I am not allowed, or will perish, if I cross the line. I realize it is Grimilia from before. She has a wolf with her by her feet. Someone else runs by and upon crossing the imaginary line is devoured by it. She calls him Tibb. I realize it is a werewolf when it transforms into a naked man, who wipes the blood off his mouth. When I see his face, I realize that he is the same man who I saw at the Marsh, the Island, and the Halo. He was following me. Why was he threatening me now when he helped me before? In fear, I run and hide, losing my lucidity.

      2. I am in a park. The sky turns very gloomy. People begin to run and shout that Grimilia is coming, and I become lucid. Instead of running, I walk slowly towards the exit. Grimilia is in a parked car. She is wearing a black suit. Instead of the hag form of before, she looks surprisingly young. Without fear, I slip into the passenger seat, and we drive away.

      3. Many people are in a maze-like complex. it has a viewof the city highway. We all run through it, avoiding Grimilia. I am the last to die.

    9. Pre-Move Dream Canon (The Nightmare Halo)

      by , 04-02-2013 at 05:19 PM (Another Night: Best of Jabre's Dream Journal)

      1. I am in a dark formless void. I intend to go to leave Central Dreamworld, but I cannot seem to escape wherever this is. I meet a man who tells me that this is the Nightmare Halo; a place surrounding Central Dreamworld and created by Grimilia. We must escape quickly if we want to live. As we move into the darkness, we see random colorful neon shapes. They are oddly misplaced against the stark hell-scape of the Halo. We hear female laughter in the distance, but we make it back in time to the Island.

      2. I am crossing again, but this time Grimilia gets me.

      3. I am lucid and running through a neon building at night to escape from Grimilia.

    10. Pre-Move Dream Canon (Central Dreamworld)

      by , 04-02-2013 at 05:10 PM (Another Night: Best of Jabre's Dream Journal)

      1. I am in a bustling city. I is filled with marketplaces, and it is very lively. There is a central structure or castle. I enter it, but in the stairs I fight zombies that have escaped from the Island. I make my way to the outside of a mansion. In it, I go into a small house that has imagery of space instead of walls as if it was a green screen. Through a portal comes up an adversary. I fight him. Grabbing the broom, I use its magical properties. I go out and see that the yard has decayed like a glacier or an avalanche. I climb down the tundra-scape and meet a talking white bunny who helps me escape the mansion.

      2. I take an art class at an abandoned mansion. I realize that I am dreaming when I discover that all the other residents are vampires. I befriend them, but the host becomes angry. He chases the vampires out and I, one day, see in the backyard an array of pillars-no stakes-impaling all of them.

    11. Murder (Synch With Katsuno)

      by , 04-02-2013 at 05:04 PM (Another Night: Best of Jabre's Dream Journal)

      1. I am in the streets at night. I go to my house and there is a friend there. We get into a fight, and he shoves me. I strike him down, and shove him across the floor. I punch him again. His head touches the unpolished concrete roughly, and blood comes from his head. The rage that I felt before turns to panic. He doesn't respond. I check his pulse, and he is still alive. I freak out about what will happen when he wakes up, and I take a hammer and bludgeon him. I hit him many times until the blood gets all over my arms. I become so angry at him, yet so sad. I experience emotions that I cannot describe. I leave his body. It is now six in the morning, and I go outside on the streets again to cool down. I am filled with satisfaction but also deep regret. The perfect idea ignites in my mind; I would dump the body in the field ten blocks behind my house. I only have an hour before sunrise, and I run inside to grab the body. It is gone. Someone took it. I am freaked out since I have no idea what is going on. Why would someone want a body? Why would they want to help me? Are they working for the police? The cops are at school the next week. They say they want to talk to some students. They check everybody's arms for traces of blood. I wipe my hands with a baby wipe just to check even though I know their their technology could find me even if I bathed in ethanol. The officer is coming around slowly to each desk in turns as my English teacher speaks. I get up to ask to go to the bathroom in order to get out of this. Someone sitting behind me who I do not know says 'Can't. They won't let you leave.' I switch seats with him because he already got his arm checked meaning that the officer would check him twice, and I would go free. Then the man asks me a question. I answer it in a subtle voice. He tells me to speak louder. I do, but he reiterates his request. I speak above medium volume, but he still inquires me to talk louder. I don't respond. He says something. I reply with a graceful shot that echoes and shudders the classroom and the faces of the children astonished by my newfound extroversion. The officer is about to condemn me for switching, but he leaves the school, saying that there is someone in the neighborhood he wants to check.

    12. Waterfall (Attempted Shared Dream with Windhover and Lmrhone)

      Quote Originally Posted by Windhover@ View Post

      Well guys I didn't have pleasant night/morning today. I remember going to a waterfall but it's foggy now. I wanted to try WILD during the night but the freaking noise distracted me a lot...I hate myself so much right now..
      This is what I have for the SD attempt:


      1. I am in a forest. There are large mountains flowing through the dreamscape with various buildings of solitude laced appropriately in the woods. Many cliffs are hanging below the beauty. I see in the distance the same exact spacious field that I was going to bury the body in from Katsuno's synch murder dream. There is another person with me, but I do not understand who. I cannot see their face. We find another person sitting on a cliff in thought. He resembled my dad at first, but then he changed into someone else I did not recognize. I go back to my house, but my family is fighting. I go back to the forest and intend to see the Asian Art Museum that was the center of the landscape. I must pay admission, so I just walk home. Before I leave the forest, I see a waterfall flowing over the cliffs.

      2. I am in a circular building with a group of people. Every room looks the same. We are running from something. We hide in a room, but I cannot lock the intricate door. I call for help, but no one responds. I run to the other section with some people, but the thing breaks in because of the unlocked door. He slaughters many. We run, but we keep slipping through the blood. Only a small number of people are left. Everybody is panicking, but I become lucid for no reason. Everything is clear and vivid. I remember everything suddenly. I become overwhelmed; I need to get back to the waterfall in order to share the dream. I feel the reality slip away, and my senses fade. I panic and twirl around, rubbing my hands. The dream regresses into a mere visualization of hypnapompia as I awaken.

      3. I am altar serving at some important mass, but it is not revealed to me what the mass is for.

      4. I am in my backyard with two other people. Once again, I cannot specify who they are because the dream is hazy. They joke around too much, and I begin to get mad at them because they are playing with my bracelet that I need for some important Christian ceremony that occurs annually. (It doesn't actually exist.) One of them throws the bracelet, and I have to look for it. I use the same one this year because I did not buy another one as the ceremony intends. I wait in line to go into the bathroom where everybody writes down their intent for the year in secret. I could not think of something, so I wrote a series of gibberish letters. The recurring pair was the two letters 'S' and 'D' together. I was not lucid.

    13. Pre-Move Dream Canon (Zombie Island)

      by , 03-27-2013 at 12:22 AM (Another Night: Best of Jabre's Dream Journal)

      1. I am in a park bordered with wire fences. A lot of zombies are chasing me. I try to climb over the high fence but I cannot. Instead, I become lucid and fly over.

      2. I am running through Zombie Island and encounter a political dispute involving the Mayor and the ethics of "containing passive zombies" as a DC's picket sign read. Apparently there are two types. I come across a passive zombie who behaves like a vampire. I am lucid and we are chased by the Dream Police from my previous dreams. The passive zombie offers me a ride in his car. An active zombie flings the door open and bites me as we are driving. The Dream Police are attacked by zombies and killed. They never appeared in my dreams again. However, the zombies are still chasing the DC and I, and my leg has become bloated and swollen. I feel the disease race up my body. I crawl to a tunnel so that the dream scene changes. I try to force myself to wake up.

      3. I am in a store. I become lucid and fly so I can visit the zombies again.

    14. Pre-Move Dream Canon (The Marsh)

      by , 03-24-2013 at 08:47 PM (Another Night: Best of Jabre's Dream Journal)
      1. The Lake of the previous dreams has become a huge wetland, and has now become dissociated from my house, but rather near Zombie Island. I am standing in the Marsh with a bunch of people, and swimming in a whirlpool the size of a football field.

      2. I am in a swamp that has taken over a neighborhood. I walk around, knowing that I have to get out before the rest of it floods. I lose my shoe, and I go back, delaying me. I then cannot make it in time before the next tidal change.

      3. I am back in the location of the first dream. I swim, but this time I discover a beautiful waterfall and cove in the Marsh.

      4. We have to jump from a mound of swamp to swim in the Marsh's tide pool.

      5. I am in a palace in Etcia (a location in my dream world), overviewing the Marsh in its beautiful entirety. When I awaken, I am happy that the terrifying place of the Lake is now replaced by this intricate swamp that I can visit in my dreams anytime I become lucid.

      6. I am playing tag with other small children in the Marsh.

      7. I am in the Marsh with others. As the wave of water rushes in, I meet a man or an animal. I cannot remember which. He told me that I was dreaming, and that he was my Dream Guide; an alternate consciousness living within my brain that only appeared in my dreams. He told me that while I was awake he slept and that dreams where his reality. I have not seen him since.

      8. EDIT: 4/30/13 The Marsh has recently transformed into the Woodland. Dreams that take place in the classic Marsh will be still be tagged as such. The Marsh was also originally the Lake, but that has since been eradicated. Only one dream from the present has gone back to the original Lake.

    15. Pre-Move Dream Canon (The Dream Police)

      by , 03-24-2013 at 08:27 PM (Another Night: Best of Jabre's Dream Journal)

      1. I am somewhat sure that I am dreaming. I begin to drive in a car. The police come. They chase me, and express their intent on destroying my lucidity. It was as if my unconsciousness wanted me not to realize I am dreaming.

      2. I am coming out of a club, and then I get arrested by the police for "being lucid in a dream" as I try to run away.
