    Pre-Comp Writeup

    -I'll be completely honest, I thought this was the first day of comp, and wrote up all my nonlucid dreams to collect what would be a pretty meager alotment of points.-

    I was on vacation with my parents. I was thinking about how I needed to move out or should get a girlfriend; not for need of romance and the likes, but simply to have someone I could go on vacation with to get away from my parents. My frustrations were only confirmed when my dad stated we would be spending the next two days at a military base because they would quarter us for free and pay for our flight home.

    My mom wasn't particularly happy about the prospects either; it meant sleeping in a barracks with a bunch of rough and tough men from the military on an uncomfortable bed with few luxuries. I remember sighing and unpacking my stuff. A girl (who I think in the dream was my sister) said to me that I couldn't take a fidget spinner in there because the military didn't allow for toys.

    I sighed and said "Oh well, I guess I'm gonna be stuck here twiddling my thumbs for two days." The dream continued with me trying to find the barracks amongst rows of parked tanks. My mom was frustrated and talked to the commander at the base. He said he would be willing to arrange a helicopter to fly us home in six hours. I thought that sounded a lot better than waiting two days.

    I set an alarm for 7am. I've been trying to normalize my sleep schedule. But I fell back asleep, figuring it would give me a shot at a WBTB.

    I was back in what felt like the same setting of the military base. Though it looked collapsed and abandoned. The two story barracks building was missing its top floor, windows were broken and saplings grew from the structure. Vines and ferns grew freely over the rusted hulks of the rows of parked tanks.


    Manei and I were sitting on the hood of a burnt-out ACV that was out of line of the rows of tanks. I was showing her my sketchbook. The sketchbook looked the same on the outside as the one I am currently working on IWL, but its contents were vastly different. I remember one in particular of a giant four-legged spider like machine with a plasma globe comprising its orbicular body.

    She went on to tell me that she wanted me to draw her. I responded with something along the lines of "Never ask an artist to draw you, they get that question too much and just because your an artist doesn't mean your art can be interested." I carried on right to the brink of lucidity to say. "I've drawn you before, but what difference does it make? Your just an abstract construct taking on the physical form of a human, drawing your visual exterior does not show what you really are. The drawing would show nothing but an empty eggshell, devoid of the axial ideas comprising you or anyone else in this dimension."

    I suddenly recognized that I was dreaming and said that I should break through become lucid, focus on the idea that I am dreaming, now but I realized the dream was fading and I could feel my body back in bed.


    Mghrg. I don't think that counts as a lucid. I became lucid the instant I wake up.

    I fell back asleep into another Manei dream. We were at disney world (which I only recognized because of the iconic castle.) riding one of those spinning swing rides. For some reason the entire ride was occupied by high school and college age people. An earthquake started and the ride started shaking. For a few moments everyone began cheering thinking that the ride operator had activated some special function to make the ride more intense for the older riders, but we quickly realized we were in danger.


    The two of us both unhooked our seat belts and leaped out of the swings onto the shaking ground. When we did the dream transitioned to us being on a motor boat riding up a wide river. I looked around and saw a hexagonal pattern in the sky, and soon noticed I was inside of a massive dome on a barren, inhospitable asteroid in deep space. The visual was really cool.


    Manei said something about playing Simcity and our conversation about drawing her continued for a bit.

    The dream changed scenes again to Manei's bedroom, which I recognized only after waking up. She had an orange gamecube and we were playing some odd variation of Pikmin 2 multiplayer together. Nonexistent enemies, pikmin types, and maps. Manei said they were coming out with a pikmin cartoon. I thought that was bizarre thinking that Pikmin made a good game but with its simplistic story and characters probably wouldn't make for a good cartoon.


    In all serious though I could probably manage to bring a drawing of her to life and take out that personal goal.
