      Dream 697 A - Drive Or Stay Home

      I don’t remember much about this dream. From where I do remember, my family were planning on going to a holiday to Apollo Bay. My parents were discussing arrangements at the time such as who was going to drive there. It was supposedly going to be a long drive, so I suggested that I drive a portion of the way. I said to asked my mum if I could drive down the portion of the major road that was going to be straight, but my dad wasn’t having any of it.

      After I failed to get the message through to my dad, my mum tried explaining to him. He kept insisting though that I wasn’t allowed to drive and he said it in a mean and somewhat aggressive way. Though by now, I wanted my way and since my dad kept resisting, I snapped and said that I wasn’t going to go on the holiday with them at all and that I was going to stay home. The dream ended as I walked into the house to begin my home-stay and my parents and brother were getting ready to leave.

      Dream 697 B - Kairi's Light

      The dream started with me wondering around in my old house. A middle aged Asian lady approached me and brought my attention to some sort of video that Kairi had made to supposedly teach others about her light and its powers. As she suggested for me to watch it, I went over to the sitting room and sat on the couch as the lady set up the video and darkened the room. The rest of the dream was now a sub-scene, which was the actual video, the dream camera now actually immersing me in it rather than playing from the sitting room.

      The scene showed Kairi in The Final World and both Sora and Riku were also there with her; all in their KH3 appearances. Also, as the entire scene played, Kairi’s theme was running in the background. Kairi was saying something, insinuating that she used to have different powers but that she chose her current light powers for a reason. She then went to the group. Although they were standing equally apart from each other, it’s like the dream gave the illusion of Sora being in the middle and Riku was off to the side.

      And then the dream camera went to a close up of Sora, though I can’t exactly explain what he was doing persay, I think he ended up looking at me, studying me, but I’m not sure. But then the dream panned out again and that’s when Kairi was seen to close her eyes and then peacefully ascend somewhat, with when she was at the highest, she was glowing with all this light. When she descended again, she walked back over to the dream camera again to supposedly communicate with me. She did say more but I forgot what it was that she said. The dream ended after this.

      Dream 697 A
      Dream Guide: None
      Lucid?: No

      Dream 697 B
      Dream Guide: None
      Lucid?: No

      This is the second time I have successfully completed a task for a 'dream project' that I have set. I thought since Riku is my current dream guide, and he's from Kingdom Hearts which is a world that seems to have laws of its own, I thought I'd do something to give back to him for helping me pass all my university subjects as well as all the other times he's helped me in-dream. I thought that since the last KH game, Sora has gone missing; so the dream project that I have set is for me to incubate dreams where I may get fictional leads on Sora. The dreams form the 'assignment' component, and then in waking life, I'm going to write an imaginary report on my dream findings which forms the 'exam' component.

      For the assignment component, I set six compulsory tasks and one optional task to carry out in dream. The tasks are as follows:
      Task 1 - Have Riku take me to Shibuya so I can gauge the area that Sora has to survive in until IRL canon rescue via whatever game they make next.
      Task 2 - Conduct a supervised audit on Yozora. 'Supervised audit' meaning that Riku has to be accessible for assistance if Yozora gets bad in the dream.
      Task 3 - Get Riku's perspective on his connection with Sora.
      Task 4 - Pull Sora for a one-time 1-on-1 meeting with me so I can get his perspective on any matters.
      Task 5 - Explore the Destiny Islands to get some leads on Sora's homeworld or something about he himself. Riku can take me or I can go independently.
      Task 6 - Conduct an independent audit on Organisation XIII. 'Independent audit' meaning I don't need a dream guide in attendence.
      Task 7 (optional) - Get Kairi's perspective on her connection with Sora.

      Once again, Task 7 was optional, meaning I wasn't attempting to incubate it in real life, but could execute it if I stumbled upon it in a dream, which is what happened last night (this morning actually; the sun was up when I woke up and fell back asleep).

      So far I have completed Task 5 (Dream 693 C) and Task 7 (Dream 697 B). I still have 5 tasks (1, 2, 3, 4 and 6) to go before I write up the paper which I have given myself the imaginary rule of two days to write 'till it's due. The two days will be set once all 7 tasks have been completed.

      Lastly, although Riku was in the scene, I have not declared him as a dream guide here, because this felt like it was Kairi's spotlight and Riku was such an insignificant part of it, so much so that he didn't even shudder or speak.

    2. Dream - Call Security & Royal Melbourne Lies & The Destiny Islands

      Date of Dream: WED 22 JUL - 2020

      Dream No. 693 - Separated Sections

      Dream 693 A - Call Security

      I don’t remember much about this dream. From where I do remember, I had come back from shopping for something at Dandenong Plaza. I was now at home and was somehow in my parents’ bed. I was going to get in to have a lie down with Riku (in his KH3 appearance). However, my dad got in between us and was being very annoying. There was a digital clock in the room with a weird set of numbers and every time that went off, my dad would harass me to wake up and would not let me have a moment with Riku.

      Eventually, I ended up calling out these various 5 or 6 digit numbers, making the threat to my dad that I was calling security. Every time I called out one of these numbers, he’d stop what he was doing and leave the room, but it wasn’t effective at all as he’d come back almost immediately. The dream morphed into us being in my bedroom and my dad was being annoying again. I remember this being the last ‘security’ number I called out. Also, Riku was partially distorted for this whole dream and just as Riku was finally about to ‘un-distort’, the dream forced a wake up on me.

      Dream No. 693 B - Royal Melbourne Lies

      I don’t remember how this dream started. From where I do remember, I was initially at the Royal Melbourne show with my mum, checking out all the various attractions. It was only a short while before one of the grounds staff members came and took her away as it were. Unbeknown to me, she was actually working at the show. I ended up speaking to Jasmine’s sister who was also working at the show but specifically with the horses. She said that if I came back at 11:00 AM, my mum would be done.

      The dream scene then shifted to me being in an actual part of the Melbourne CBD and I was wondering around until it was time for me to go back to the Royal Melbourne Show. However, I wasn’t even back yet and I realised that they were keeping my mum for longer than they had said; she was basically their workhorse now. I now had to make my way there in order to get my mum back. Not only was I cross at the officials for keeping her, but being on my own seemed to make me feel somewhat scared and insecure. I feel like I needed help and so while still in the CBD, I went to look for a dream guide.

      Just outside the train station, Riku ended up coming (in his KH3 appearance). I have entirely forgotten how he was summoned and how he came. Riku had a cool, casual, and fun temperament, but by his energy, I also knew he could tell that I was scared. The dream still had a while to go but Riku never let me out of his sight and always stuck close by for the rest of the dream, as if he was fulfilling the role of a mother.

      It then became the scene where I was due to take the train to get back to the showgrounds and only in this scene was Riku seemingly not present. Rather than an actual train, the dream seemed to make me fly low across these railway tracks myself, as if I was the train…? However, I saw all these brick walls and various obstacles within the train tunnels and this freaked me out. As I sped towards the obstacles, just as I was about to him them, I thought, ‘if I hit them I’ll die!’. The time came and I hit a brick wall with high speed but I was not affected AT ALL and rather the brick wall itself crumbled apart. I was now on the other side, continuing the show, I thought ‘how could this be?’, but then I remembered that although not visible, Riku was still with me and so he must have protected me and made me cause impact to the wall instead of the opposite way around.

      I got to the showgrounds and Riku was physically human again, now holding my hand and letting me take him wherever I wanted to go. It almost felt like I was now attending the show with the boyfriend I never had IRL. Riku was still able to ‘mother’ me and protect me while laughing at various things we ended up talking about as well as looked at the attractions I pointed him to. We came to a pavilion with all these carnival games and prizes, the most significant one I remember was the ball in the clowns’ mouth game.

      While we were there, I looked down and I seemed to have all these laminated cutouts neatly ordered in my hands. There were four of each of my dream guides; (from left to right) of Riku, 18-Volt, and Dreamy WB. Riku’s were of his default KH3 pose. 18-Volt’s hair was bizarrely ‘too black’ but his skin was ‘too pale’. Dreamy WB seemed to have her OCT 2016 school uniform appearance with the two braids. It felt as if these cutouts were a part of the carnival game prizes, like a ‘collectors edition’ as it were.

      I was then back to talking with the real Riku and making him laugh. After going to some more attractions on the fairgrounds with him having his arm around me, the dream ended.

      Dream No. 693 C - The Destiny Islands

      I don’t remember much about this dream. From where I do remember, I seemed to be at the Kingdom Hearts Destiny Islands myself. I didn’t necessarily spend too much time there. As I wondered from the coast with clear blue water and skies, I ended up seeing all this ‘dark, blue/purple’ crystal fissure-y stuff embedded into the cliffs. I decided to walk in the direction to see what it was about and as I kept walking, the rocks were all saturated with that crystal stuff, as if it were turning into the Realm of Darkness.

      However, I saw the other-side of the cliffs and made a realisation. I noticed I had ended up in a dry, barren, somewhat polluted dessert and came to the realisation that this was the wastelands from Jak 3. I remember that I had only walked in from the Destiny Islands though, so I this was not another dimension. I thought to myself ‘the sky is connected’. That’s all I can remember about this dream.

    3. Dream - Training At Disney Castle

      by , 07-20-2020 at 03:02 PM
      Date of Dream: FRI 17 JUL - 2020

      Dream No. 689 - Training At Disney Castle

      The dream started with my at my house; the surroundings outside seeming like it was very early, like it was still night time but I could see. Back to what was going on in the house; my aunty had come over for a visit. Both my parents were at home but only my mum was seemingly around at the time. My aunty was talking to us about an opportunity she had for me as some sort of work experience, it had something to do with all these photos that were now all of sudden lying on the floor. I thought the project was a bit corny and so I didn’t like the idea of it. However, my mum got angry and in-fact, both my parents as a collective were angry (my aunty was just disappointed), so I realised I had to get out of there as fast as I could.

      I only had a little bit of a head-start to scramble out of the house once I then realised that my parents were chasing me! I rushed out the back door and then scampered around the house to try and get to the front. Though I realised though that if I exited through the streets, my parents would detect me and be likely to get me. So instead, I flew what felt freakishly high, and went over the roof, escaping from the back blocks of my group of houses. As I then went back down towards the streets and started walking again, I called for Dreamy WB but she didn’t respond. I then tried for 18-Volt, no response from him either but there was this energy suggesting that he was still angry with me. I thought I had run out of options, so although I couldn’t get help, I had to keep moving or my parents would catch up with me.

      However, as I started walking up the hill towards the milk-bar, I saw Riku casually walking on the other side of the road (in his KH3 appearance) that the milk-bar was on. I then remembered that Riku was my third option and so yelled out to him so he could hear me across the street. It took quite a lot of tries but he eventually noticed me, quickly turning his head sideways to see me and then he crossed the road to come to my side.

      Riku looked at me like he could tell I was anxious from my parents, so he came and hugged me. However, when he put his arms around me, both he and I ascended into the air and I realised he wanted to take me somewhere. For a while, it just seemed like he was transporting me casually within my area, but then he paused while in mid-air and told me to make sure I was holding onto him tightly. I realised that he wanted to fly me to Kingdom Hearts. So then I made sure I was holding onto him for dear life; my arms around his neck, my body pressed into his chest, and my head perched over one of Riku’s shoulders.

      However, Riku seemed to hesitate his next move, as if he noticed some sort of risk. He gently pushed my head off his shoulder and put it ‘behind his’ in regards to the direction we were supposed to be facing for this action to work. Once he made sure I was secure and ‘out of harms way’, he flew extremely fast with his head slightly backwards, however swinging it forward at the last minute in order to have enough impact to bash the sky open, forming an inter-dimensional hole. At first, the hole seemed to be nothing but ‘darkness’, but as he flew back and put me back into a normal position, we could actually see into the other world. It was at that point that I realised he not only wanted to take me to Kingdom Hearts, but ultimately to Disney Castle which was a sub-dimension of Kingdom Hearts, so he had to take me through yet another ‘rift’.

      Once Riku had taken me through all the necessary ‘holes’, I realised we were finally at the Disney world, but it didn’t look cartoony; rather it was quite a realistic setting. The grounds looked the setting in the Lord of The Rings / The Hobbit movies where they’d have the major battles; the grass was a very lush green, the field being wide and mountains being seen in the distance. As we were going across the field, I noticed Riku’s altitude getting lower and lower until eventually, he landed us right in front of Disney Castle (which did look like the actual Disney Castle but smaller) and released me.

      I realised that there was an event going on at Disney Castle in which Riku wanted to utilise to help train me for how I could deal with my parents. It was something called ‘Ninja Battles’, even though it had absolutely nothing to do with Ninjas. It was some sort of physical game but I cannot describe the specific actions. First it was just me and Riku and although we were battling each other, I didn’t mind as it was only for training and no one was actually going to hurt the other.

      I was stopped though with the realisation that my parents had found their way into this realm. I ran in a panic to see my mum walking down a now visible road in the distance while looking down at her phone (suspecting she was in contact with my dad). I ran back to Riku and was talking at him like at motormouth, asking him what on Earth I should do with the knowledge of my parents finding their way in. However, Riku’s calm response and unique perspective surprised me. He said that they may also have come here to improve themselves and to just leave them be.

      We were than able to get back into the ‘Ninja Battles' and I told Riku that although I was going up against him, I found it fun as I knew we were only training. He gave a slight smile and then we got back into it. However this time, others also seemed to join us and it was now between 6 people rather than just the 2 of us. The other 4 were random, unidentified Disney characters. After continuing to playfully feud for awhile, the dream ended and I woke up to an early time at dawn.

    4. Dream - Reality Is Believing

      Date of Dream: MON 13 JUL - 2020

      Dream No. 686 - Reality Is Believing

      I don’t remember how this dream started. From where I do remember, my family and I were just finishing up at our beach-side holiday destination. On the way back home, I seemed to end up by myself but at another accommodation complex, somewhere within the Dandenong Ranges. It was an entire group of people and I heard that it was supposed to split up between males and females. I was a special case though; the person told me that I was going to be in the mens’ cabin to be with Riku. As the announcement was being made, a short sub-scene was playing with Riku, supposedly in the cabin, in his KH2 appearance, wearing his Organisation XIII coat, but he looked happy and had this fatherly energy about him like he was ready to care for me. I was now so excited and couldn’t wait until we got to be in our cabins.

      The next scene felt like we were finally getting access to the cabins, but the scene actually took place at my other grandparents’ house. Apparently there was still the females cabin and the males cabin, but then I also heard that there was a now a third group made called the Dream Eaters cabin (Dream Eaters IRL is the Kingdom Hearts interpretation of Dream Guide) and apparently I was going to be with the Dream Eaters. I then found out that it would consist of 2 men and 2 ladies.

      I went in the back room behind my grandparents’ garage and there were 4 laminated pieces of paper in there, who were supposedly going to be my Dream Eaters. One of them was Riku, and another one of them was WBD… I can’t remember the other man and woman. I felt more excited than in the last scene and I realised that I had to awaken them. I went up to the couch which the 4 pieces of paper were laying on and I recited a repetitive prayer over them to awaken them.

      Three of the Dream Eaters had awaken, but I was notably struggling with Riku. However, Master Yen Sid appeared, supposedly walking in from the garage and he caught my attention. I turned towards him and he spoke to me, saying something like “you might be struggling because you think he’s not real but in order to awaken him, you need to think he’s real”. As Master Yen Sid walked off again I felt this new, confident energy within me as I recited something very short and indeed Riku became human, once again in his KH2, Organisation XIII appearance but again without the blindfold.

      I was excited to see the other Dream Eaters but I was most excited to see him and almost screamed in excitement when he got up off the couch. Riku didn’t hesitate and went outside into the backyard with me. Once we were outside, we were talking with each other and he was laughing as he then did cartwheels on the grass in an attempt to entertain me but I could tell he was having fun while doing them too. However, the fun couldn’t last forever and the dream scene changed again.

      I was now by myself and was apparently getting ready to see Edward (Ed) B at a convention. There was a sub-scene of him talking to me. He said that he’d only allow two people in the room at a time because there was going to be no one around to protect him; from this, there was this grave feeling that I would miss out and that I had travelled to the con for nothing. My surrounding energy was projecting the thought of ‘he seems to care more about himself than any of his fans. Why can’t he take alternative measures to make sure everyone gets their turn?’. I can’t remember anything else about this dream.

      Dream No. 686

      Dream Guide: Riku, WBD, (+1 man), (+1 woman)
      Lucid?: No

      I was unpleasantly shocked to see that WBD was portrayed as a dream guide in this dream, because IRL, she's one of my online community members that has mistreated me in the past. In contrast though, I was pleasantly surprised and honoured to see Master Yen Sid, and the fact that he seemed to already have an awareness of the connection between me and Riku. Also, my dreams seem to use the term 'Dream Eaters', but that's basically KH-DDD's interpretation of 'Dream Guides'.

    5. Dream - The Other Plant Nursery

      by , 07-12-2020 at 03:37 PM
      Date of Dream: SAT 11 JUL - 2020

      Dream No. 684 - The Other Plant Nursery

      I don’t remember how the dream started. From where I do remember, my mum, brother and I had pre-booked tickets to see a movie. I was the one driving us to an old styled cinema in a small town. I had an idea of where I wanted to park, but either my mum or my brother (I’ve forgotten which one) told me to park where ‘The Brass’ would normally park. I ended parking in their area, though I was relieved because there also seemed to be other public patrons parked there as well.

      We then ended up inside the cinema and my dad was with us well. I can recall that were waiting to see a film that was sort of a cross between Ice Age and Star Wars. As were waiting to go inside the theatre, there was a lady that seemed to catch my attention. She seemed like a very nice person and was asking me to do something for her; to sing something or learn something to sing for her. Before we were going to leave the area, I recalled that I had to see that person (her name was stated in dream but I have forgotten it). The dream then changed scenes.

      For the second scene, I was at my house and was trying to invite people over to a party that I was hosting. First of all, on my brother’s phone, I managed to contact someone with the identity of ‘Farting Tart’, we ended up having a small conversation but I forgot what it was about. I then scrolled down my brother’s contacts to see who else he had on his phone and I was surprised to see that he had Riku’s number. Even though it felt strange that Riku was more connected to my brother in this instance, I decided to send him what seemed to be an awkwardly short text to invite him to the party. When the text was sent though, this energy descended upon me, hinting that Riku was actually likely to make an appearance later in the dream.

      I was then at a familiar shopping centre with my family, but then it was distorted enough so it felt like an unfamiliar shopping centre. I forgot what we were specially doing at the time, but I remember we went into Target and we saw a set of elevators in the store. My brother said that in order to see his friends, we had to go down them. I was wondering why we had to go down when we were pretty much already on the ground floor, but then I figured this could have been a way to enter into another dimension.

      The dream skipped showing us going down the elevator but it felt like we were in this so called ‘dimension’ when the dream shifted scenes. It was just me and my brother as we were the only ones that supposedly went down. We ended up in this large but beautifully antique area of shops, almost like Sovereign Hill. We ended up walking past the local Lindt Cafe and went inside to see what we could snag.

      Inside the shop, the lady at the counter seemed to be normal, but also to be very cold and somewhat scheming. I found a hot chocolate whisk that I liked and brought it to the counter. When the lady calculated it, with my brother standing beside me, she said that the item would cost $41.63 and I immediately stopped her, claiming that it a rip-off. I then turned to my brother as I said that the one we got from an IRL chocolate shop (which is actually a true story) was only $5.00. The lady said that she would reconsider and charge us as if were buying 2 for 1; however, the price ended up not being cheaper, but rather more expensive, showing $56.58 on the computer. I was outraged.

      Through feeling, I noticed that I had screwed up my face at the lady. As I held the whisk to my brother, it showed pieces of chocolate falling of it; as if the chocolate had already melted, the actual fault is hard to describe. I then let the lady have it; I told her that she was going against consumer law. I specifically stated that goods to be abiding by consumer law, they had to be fit for purpose, as well as that they had also to match the description. I then pointed vigorously at the collapsing chocolate whisk as I said to the lady “this does not match the description”. I then stormed out of the shop as I was then on my own but bumped into my university friend RV and told her about what nonsense I had just experienced, explaining the principles of consumer law to her as well.

      By myself again, I entered this nursery shop which sold all these plants and other gardening supplies and there I seemed to join up with my old high school friend JSa. It felt just like the old days in real life, we walked around, looking at all the different plants while we spoke and I tried to make her laugh. At one point though, something caught my eye. On a high counter in a corner, there was a small green hologram of Riku’s face, suggesting that he was somewhere present in the dream. I left JSa where she was and went by myself to investigate.

      It didn’t take long before I saw a middle aged man wondering around the nursery, he was a large build and was wearing a black short-sleeved t-shirt and medium washed denim jeans. Although this looked, and sounded, like a completely different person, there was this energy always pulsating from him to tell me that this was in-fact Riku. From my end of the store, I yelled out “Riku!”, numerous times, but the man kept on ignoring me. The man, however, started walking away and so I had to walk quickly to catch up to him. As he kept walking, I tried to grab his attention; “Riku, please! Wait!”; he kept on going. I knew what was going on. He didn’t know who I was or what my intention was, so he was probably thinking, in-fact hoping that I’d just go away and leave him alone.

      I realised that he was about to enter into a ‘parallel’ version of the nursery as I was supposedly in the ‘real life’ version of the nursery and we was going to enter back to where he was, being the ‘dream’ version of the nursery. Before he went into the other one, I ran as fast as I could, saying with urgency, “Riku, I’m your dreamer, I’m here to help you” as I then finally caught him, hugging him from behind, putting my hands on gently his sides and so he was forced to stand still but had an energy radiating off him like he was annoyed, and like he was still doubtful to trust me, like anyone would want to help him. Once I let go of him, he crossed to ‘the other side’ and so I had to make a decision, whether I’d stay where I was, or go to Riku’s version of the nursery but that meant I had to leave JSa behind and perhaps wouldn’t be able to return.

      I carefully made my choice and ended up going to pursue Riku. I caught him in the back corner of the ‘other’ nursery and he grumbled something at me, I forgot what he said, but it was in this deep, overly Southern, hunter like voice. But I kept deflecting what he said and kept reassuring him about who I was and that I was there for him. Eventually he stopped babbling but still didn’t sound happy. He did say though that I had to work for him and it sounded like he was going to put me through a tough slog.

      Reluctantly, I agreed but then also told him as a dreamer that I wanted him to carry me and I taught him how he could do it, telling him that ‘the laws don’t exist’ (meaning the laws of gravity and other physics). He took a deep sigh and then stood slightly bent over, with his back to me, insinuating that I climb onto his back. Once I secured myself, he lifted to stand up straight again, and although he wasn’t holding me at all (and neither was I holding onto him him), I didn’t fall off. Still with a subtle energy of annoyance, he walked over to where the supposed ‘work’ was.

      When we got to the bench, Crash Bandicoot also appeared, in his wacky crazy demeanour just as he’s portrayed in the IRL games; also, Crash was not distorted in appearance, unlike Riku who heavily was. However, the distorted Riku didn’t seem to be too happy with his companion at all; in-fact it felt as if Crash Bandicoot was with him as a replacement because Sora was still missing in Kingdom Hearts. As Riku was giving me instructions on what to do, Crash kept making these manic noises and ‘spun’ himself into the distance. Catching Riku’s attention, he looked over at Crash and said to me in his weird Southern voice, something like “that bandicoot’s done nothing at all”.

      There were three ‘trays’, one on each side of the bench, and Riku told me that I was to fill them with the fertiliser that was in the bag on the bench. There was barely any fertiliser in the trays and that was supposedly what Crash had already done. I thought Riku was being a bit harsh towards me and still wasn’t convinced that he was being a good dream guide; so I said I’d do it, but that he had to still carry me. He tried complaining but I quickly interrupted him and told him he could carry me between trays. So using the same method as he did before, he got me on his back and moved me between the trays. However, I realised I could do my job properly as the fertiliser in the bad had turned into some sort of cut up capsicum and tomato salad mix, but I filled the tray with this to show that I was trying.

      When I finished the last try, I told Riku that I was done. He didn’t look impressed but then as his dreamer, I politely told him that I did the best I could. He went over to look in the fertiliser bag and he seemed to have a slight change of heart when he saw that I had indeed emptied it. He sighed and said, “let’s just leave it to someone who knows what they’re doing”, insinuating that the distorted Riku felt at fault for the group’s project failure.

      However, he brought a try full of water and told me that he wanted to drain it. Without enough time to say anything, he put it on my dress, so now my dress would get dirty. As he was lowering the try, I panicked as fast as I could, like “Riku what are you doing!? You’re going to make my dress wet!”. but as I said, he just put it there without a second thought. I sighed as I realised and told him, “It’s okay Riku, remember the laws don’t exist and so my dress should be try in no time (rather than staying dirty and wet)”, and indeed, the dream camera showed my dress and it dried immediately, with no stains left behind either. I saw that I was wearing a teal and white chequered design.

      After that, Riku prompted me to come with him as he was supposedly going to jump through the huge portal on the wall to go to Kindgom Hearts. Although his distorting was still making him nasty and sour, I felt an energy from Riku like he now appreciated me as his dreamer, like I had finally showed him that I was enough. He still wasn’t happy with Crash though and as Riku was helping me through the portal, Crash was skipping towards it himself, still making his stupid ‘hannah montana’ noises. I had a feeling within me that as soon as we got to the other side, Riku’s distortion would lift off. However, before we could even touch the portal, the dream ended.

      Dream No. 681 - The Wrong Elevator

      I don’t remember how this started. From where I do remember, I seemed to be outside my Chisholm 311 campus and four girls from my high school were; I can remember who one of them was but not the other three. I then ended up at a distorted version of Knox Shopping Centre where I came to Hungry Jacks in the food court. The same four girls were there but as if they were acting like bodyguards and wouldn’t let me near the ordering counter.

      The dream camera changed perspectives to third-person mode and Riku (in his KH3 appearance) was seen to be ordering at the counter. He was seen talking to the girl at the counter, as she asked him which Fanta he wanted, he pointed at the machine and said he wanted the pink one (there was orange and pink (raspberry)). He had also ordered a chicken burger which he was seen to take a bite of. Back to me; I was trying to get through the girls to the counter when all of sudden, Riku finished his order, got his drink, and came and told them they didn’t need to be there guarding the counter. As Riku than walked over to find a table; I felt cut that he bought himself a pink Fanta but didn’t get one for me. However, I felt like I shouldn’t say anything in fear of sounding rude and so I just quietly accepted my fate of getting nothing.

      Once Riku had finished his lunch, the dream had showed us just outside the food court and Riku began to speak to me. He seemed to make an observation that if I was to return to my university campus for a new semester, my familiarity with the elevator my have washed and so my fear could return, so he specifically came as he said he wanted to take me for elevator practise. We discussed that we’d attempt usage of the elevator at MYER.

      He then seemed to give me this entire preparatory speech. He put his hands on my shoulders and looked me right in the eyes, starting off with an endearment as he said “Angel, can you take control of your fears or will you let them take control of you?”. I didn’t necessarily answer as I knew it was a rhetorical question but Riku seemed to gauge from my energy that I was willing, so he directed me to go towards MYER. I ended up waiting for him at the entrance as I had gotten ahead a little bit and he needed to catch up to me.

      Once Riku caught up, he and walked into MYER, which looked significantly different than in real life. Rather than being one large floor space, the second floor we entered on just seemed to be a narrow corridor with an eventual dead end. There were two young ladies working at the counter in the entryway, in which Riku had stopped to speak to one of them. He said something to the lady like “excuse me, do you know where the lift is? I’m just taking her for some practise because she’s scared of them”. The lady was very friendly and understanding and she pointed out to Riku where the lift was. Riku signalled for me to follow him to the elevator and so I did.

      Just before we walked in, he once again asked me if I was ready. At the sight of the doors, my fear seemed to be present again but then I did say to Riku that I was going to do it. As the doors opened, Riku escorted me in and as they shut, realising I was still uneasy, he ended up encasing me in a surprisingly tight hug for him, as I peered over his left shoulder to remain true to facing my returning fear rather than hiding entirely. However, the surroundings in the lift became extremely distorted and started to look nothing like one in real life and it was actually me that told Riku that the surroundings were incorrect.

      Riku looked around and he too realised that the environment was a dud. He was now thinking about which other elevator he would take me in. He thought about ones more in the middle of the shopping centre but then he decided that the interiors of them may be too dark and therefore look ominous to me. Eventually, he decided and told me that he would take me to the elevator at the opposite end of the shopping centre as he believed this would be the next best environment to my university one.

      As he and I walked out of MYER, the same way we came in, we now past by two ladies working at the front register. An African lady was talking to another customer and the lady that Riku had spoken to before seemed to be preoccupied with her own task. However, at the last minute, the lady ended stopping us and asked Riku how we went. He told her that the attempt was a disappointment and that he’d be taking me to the one at the opposite end of the shopping centre. Just as we were about to exit MYER all together and walk to the other end, the dream ended.

    7. Dream - Mystery Of The Possessed Kingdom Hearts Characters

      Date of Dream: SUN 28 JUN - 2020

      Dream No. 676 - Mystery Of The Possessed Kingdom Hearts Characters

      I don’t remember how the dream started. From where I do remember, it was a simulation of Kingdom Hearts and for some time, the first-person entity in the dream was Sora (in his KH3 appearance; in-fact, all characters were in their KH3 appearance). He was in this world which seemed to be like a forest with ancient ruins scattered throughout it. The King (Mickey) was instructing him throughout a mission which seemed to, though, have some dark, creepy and somewhat psychotic vibe about it. Sora had to collect these red coins (120 of them) and the later the coins, they were harder to find and some even triggered weird events for Sora.

      The dream seemed to change scenes but it was regarding the same situation. I was now amongst Riku as well as Aqua and Terra in a different, seemingly more peaceful part of the forest. The King wasn’t there, but through his energy, we knew that Sora was in trouble. In-fact, Riku, Terra and Aqua spoke to me, wanting me to go on a scouting mission for them. Ventus was with them but he didn’t really say anything and was rather hiding being Terra and Aqua as if he was their child. I realised that the reason they wanted me to go is because as I am not an official member of Kingdom Hearts; Organisation XIII would not recognise me and so I could do whatever I wanted without being caught.

      The dream now split into two different scenes of what each party was doing. Firstly, the dream went to Riku, Ventus, Terra and Aqua who now seemed to set up base under a great big majestic tree and they were there waiting for me. Terra and Aqua were sitting on an additional stump on the side and were casually conversing with each other (though there was no sound from them, just visual) as Ventus seemed to be eating a bowl of porridge, but not by himself. Riku was spoon-feeding Ventus and I believed Riku was practising his feeding technique as a dream guide for when I would return. As Terra and Aqua had a calm, casual energy, there was a nervous energy coming off Riku like he was extremely worried that I wouldn’t make it back safely.

      Now the dream went to my scene. I was walking to this more open area and I saw these characters glowing with some light-greenish data shield around them; they were recognisable Disney characters from Kingdom Hearts. In the real life games, Donald and Goofy are Sora’s main companions but in this dream, they were his closest, nastiest prison guards. Sora didn’t have any obvious restrictions but if he moved from in-between Donald and Goofy, the possessed characters would hurt him very badly (any characters with the shields moulded around them).

      Even though the characters were extremely nasty and creepy when possessed, I walked around without a care as I recalled I would not be recognised by any of them; though my energy was that of sheer nervousness. Upon assessing the group, I shockingly noticed that Kairi was also possessed and so could also very well hurt Sora. The dream camera then went to a close-up of Sora, Donald and Goofy. Whoever was possessed would be able to say some of the nastiest, most horrible things in somewhat of a deep robotic tone; and this was Goofy at the moment, threatening Sora… Sora did dare not move or say a word. However, Goofy’s shield seemed to switch off and he was trying to cram as much in as he could naturally. However, it wasn’t long before his shield came back on and he was as psychotic as ever. Donald just stood there all the time, looking like he could hit Sora with a baseball bat.

      Goofy seemed to now be giving the ultimate speech of sheer terror and Donald now looked so violent like he was ready to pounce. I even felt Riku’s energy of sheer terror from afar, being worried sick about his dreamer. The speech did it; as Donald and Goofy remained on the hill to bar Sora; the rest of the possessed characters, including Kairi, got violent with each other. The dream camera even ended up doing a close up on the Pirates of the Caribbean group who were punching each other in the face while laughing in their faces like drunkards. I had seen enough and I figured it was time to head back to the group at the great tree before something would indeed happen to me too.

      As I quickly but quietly slipped away, I started off with a little dash and propelled myself into the air. I gained the best feeling inside me as I was to fly across the forest to return ‘home’, this energy of sheer joy and excitement to see my Kingdom Hearts family again. Flying felt so much fun as I went up and down and then straight forward, but making a slight left curve to steer towards the great tree, and now this triumphant sounding music was playing as I continued towards the great tree.

      Now as I was flying straight again, as soon as I caught sight of the great tree, Aqua and Terra smiled and started waving at me. However, Riku seemed to have his back turned and was still doing something with Ventus. Terra took a quick second to tap Riku on the back and had a look like ‘told you she’d make it’. Riku turned around quickly in a flustered manner and had the most surprised look on his face, like he was gasping in astonishment, as he then smiled and waved to welcome me back along with Terra and Aqua. While I was still at full speed, just before I entered under the shade of the tree; the dream ended and I woke up.

      Dream Guide: Riku
      Lucid?: No

      I also ended up discussing this dream, so I'm also going to share here what I said about it on my Tumblr account:

      I’ve treated Kingdom Hearts differently compared to the past video game worlds I’ve incorporated in my dreams. Because Kingdom Hearts is such a large group and they all seem to be ‘friends’ with each other, I felt bad about using only Riku and therefore perhaps taking him away from the rest of them; so I’ve devised a 3 Level system in which the whole KH group can contribute. As Riku is my dream guide; he’s the only one on Level 3. Those that are not dream guides but I think still have a strong competence are on Level 2; they are Aqua, Terra, Roxas and Sora; they can act as substitutes if my dreams were to impair Riku in any way. The rest are on Level 1 which are those who are... Casual players; they are Kairi, Axel, Xion, Ventus and Namine. For those shocked about Kairi; I MAY promote her to Level 2 depending on how she performs IRL in Melody of Memory. It’s funny because I think the Level system was really demonstrated in Dream No. 676, but I’ll get to that recap eventually.

      So, since Riku was maintaining significant weakness as a dream guide; I decided to write a letter to Aqua and Terra in my IRL task journal, asking them to ‘speak to him’ about some points I as a dreamer wanted to address. I wrote to Terra because he’s Riku’s predecessor in their world; and then I included Aqua because I creatively thought ‘what if Terra gets another spell of darkness or some kind of rage?’. It was amazing to actually see results, but I was not expecting Dream No. 676.

      I’ll give the actual full dream recap in another post, but here’s some discussion on it. In Dream No. 676, Riku, Terra and Aqua appeared to me (after the first scene was about Sora rather than me). Ventus was also there, but he seemed to be ‘hiding’ behind Terra and Aqua like a kid; so that there emphasises my Subconscious’ (SubC’s) assertion that I had put Ventus on Level 1; whereas Terra and Aqua’s Level 2 was demonstrated by them ‘outlining the mission’ to me; and in this dream, it also seemed that they were teaching Riku about being a dream guide. In-fact it felt like the Wayfinder Trio were the main ones featured but Riku was brought along as that link between me and them.

      In a sub-scene, while I was gone; Aqua and Terra were sitting at the side on a stump and were talking with each other. Then there was Riku and Ventus at a table; Ventus had a bowl of porridge and Riku was spoon-feeding it to him. I feel like Aqua and Terra had asked Ventus to be a ‘practise dummy’ for Riku and Ventus had agreed. Riku may never spoon-feed me a meal in a subsequent dream, but it was just a metaphor at least of general caring conduct as a ‘dream guide’ in my universe.

      Like Riku still has a way to go to be a fully-fledged dream guide in my universe (he still has to master hugging and carrying), but he tried so damn hard in Dream No. 676. In-fact, Riku was the sole one to have the fear of God in him that I wouldn’t make it back alive (like a parent, he was worried sick for my safety), whereas the energies from Aqua and Terra showed that they were always confident I’d make it back to them safely. In-fact when I was returning, it was Terra that tapped Riku on the back and Riku was absolutely shocked. Ventus just continued to twiddle around at his end of the table. So with our group, it felt like a family of 3 ‘adults’ (Riku, Terra and Aqua) and 2 ‘children’ (me and Ventus).

      I loved the interaction I had with these guys in Dream No. 676, so I decided afterwards to draw us. I’m the one in-between Riku and Terra. My outfit is consistent; I devised this to be my Kingdom Hearts OC outfit; I thought my usual school uniform would not suit, so this is my new get-up. The background is externally sourced from a wallpaper image but this is similar to what the environment was like in the dream. As I said; I’ll put the actual dream recap in a separate post. Don’t hesitate if you want to ask me about any of my ‘universe laws’ and/or my various interactions.

      Congratulations if you made it to the end of this post!!

    8. Dream - Protests In The Streets

      by , 06-25-2020 at 09:56 AM
      Date of Dream: THU 18 JUN - 2020

      Dream No. 671 - Protests In The Streets

      I don’t remember how the dream started. From where I do remember, the dream had just changed to another scene. My brother and I were walking around this unknown town, but it didn’t remain peaceful for too long. Apparently the dream started initiating the sense of protests and riots in this town as well. There was this man that was one of the troublemakers but he seemed innocent. I was talking to him on the streets for a while until he said he had to go because we could feel the presence of the police closing in. I was slightly devastated that I couldn’t talk to the man more because he seemed like a good guy.

      As the guy went into the block of houses, the police car pulled up and parked at the side of the street. There was only one police officer in the car and when he got out, he ended up speaking to me and my brother. Even though he was a guy, he seemed to have some womanly features as well. As he was talking to us, he had this seemingly creepy grin and he was saying way too much to try and sound like the good guy. In-fact, he was talking to my brother and I as if we were babies and we didn’t understand anything… I did not like this one at all.

      The police officer eventually went away to try and find the man from before and when he did, my brother all of a sudden got really angry at me. He accused me of saying something to the police officer when in-fact, I said absolutely nothing the entire time. I tried to explain to my brother but he just wasn’t having any of it. Eventually, he got so mad with me that he actually started to walk away. I kept trying to beg for him to listen and understand but he just stormed off and actually left the scene.

      Everything that was happening made me now feel unsafe, but what amplified this the most was the way I was treated by my own brother, and so I was under the belief that he too was affected by the surrounding riots. I decided that it was time for me to find a dream guide before things got any worse, so I could be taken to safety. I thought I knew who I wanted, but at the same time I didn’t. As I was walking down the sourrounding suburb streets in a mix between a calm but panicked manner, I first called for 18-Volt, but then I changed it to Dreamy Wabbi, but then I changed it again, this time to Riku.

      I seemed to stick with Riku though as I repeatedly called his name as I tried to walk further and further away from the town. Eventually, due to Riku’s energy, I turned around and noticed him walking into the scene from one of the backstreets; he even went around a parked car. I stood as I watched Riku coming towards me. As he then traversed the grass to get to me, the sides of his hair (he was in KH3 appearance) seemed to sway slightly back and forth. In this dream, his hair ended up looking really soft and silky and the white on his t-shirt was almost visually piercing.

      As he was finally in-front of me, he hugged me briefly. On releasing me, Riku then gave me a slightly serious look like he knew I was in danger and was telling me I needed to get out of this place. Although he himself wasn’t, his energy made it feel like we were linking arms as I walked beside him to be escorted out of the area. However, that energy didn’t last long and I realised that Riku was actually gone, but not by his own will.

      I was shocked as I looked down to notice two pieces of a small laminated Riku in my hand. My heart sank as I realised his head was separated from his body; the dream basically ruining his existence. I knew I had to keep walking in the direction Riku had started me on though. I did so with a look of despair and disappointment, but at the same time, feeling obliged to make this Riku whole again. Eventually I was able to stop and had a roll of sticky tape with me. I took a piece off as I tried to connect Riku’s head back to the rest of his body. Even though I had used the sticky tape, I came to the realisation that Riku would never be the same again. The dream ended there.

      Date of Dream: WED 17 JUN - 2020
      Nap Time Range: 5:10 PM - 6:00 PM (AEST)

      Dream No. 670N - I Will Survive

      It was a fairly short dream, or so it felt. As in the game reveal trailer I saw in the morning when I was awake, both Riku and Kairi were togther in The Final World. However, the dream was playing in third-person and I skipped and twirled into the scene in the Kingdom Hearts outfit I drew myself in IRL. As this was happening, the song ‘I Will Survive’ was playing and I was somewhat singing to it as I approached the lurching Xehanort with purpose; it’s as if this would be my theme if I was really in Kindgom Hearts. I couldn’t tell their emotions but I could tell that Riku and Kairi could do nothing but stop and stare at the magnificent entrance of this unknown but seemingly powerful person who was going to handle Xehanort on their behalf.

      The dream then moved onto the next scene which was completely unrelated. The energy felt like I was in my bedroom, but the scene itself was rather an empty black void as I was supposedly talking to Riku about how my tax exam went. I said that I needed to get 35 out of 60 to pass (which was actually also the case in real life) and then Riku appeared (still in the black void) as a hologram and gained a sort of ‘yikes’ look on his face; he shot his head back as his mouth remained closed but his eyes widened with his grey eyebrows shooting up and his forehead scrunching up. I woke up after this as my mum said dinner was ready.

      Lucid?: No

      I find it an amazing coincidence that this dream happened immediately after the tax exam; like 1,1/2 hrs after the conclusion of it. It's even more amazing because in my waking life task journal, I asked Riku to be with me IRL (in the form of energy) during the exam period. I was non-lucid, yet I accurately stated I needed 35/60 to pass which is actually the benchmark I need to meet in real life, and then Riku giving such an animated reaction to that made it feel even more real.

      Date of Dream: MON 15 JUN - 2020

      Dream No. 669 - The Dreadful Tax Exam

      I can’t remember how the dream started. From where I do remember, I was at my old high school, however, I was using this as my primary place of study; it felt almost like home to me. There were a few scenes showing me in the year 12 rooms and I was worrying about the material as well as that I was not going to leave myself enough time to sit the exam properly.

      The subject coordinator had given us a practise exam for some of the revision materials. I was now at the library in the year 12 study room as I seemed to recap in the dream what the practise exam was based on. Apparently, in the real exam, the subject coordinator was going to also be giving us questions completely unrelated to tax to distract us, and so there were some in the practise exam as well. There were some really hard questions about biology and then there was one question which wrote ‘what is a baka?’. I had a feeling that the subject coordinator was trying to call us an idiot as I envisioned the answer being ‘baka means idiot in Japanese’.

      In the dream, the exams were still being sat at the Chisholm 311 campus but everyone had to do it on the computers. As it was getting stressfully close to exam time, I was going to ask for Riku to take me to campus. Even though he wasn’t yet present, I didn’t end up yelling or even declaring; I seemed to use a calm voice instead like I was talking to somone in the area. I said; ‘Riku, please take me to Chisholm 311 and please include my laptop, the Australian Taxation Textbook, the Australian Taxation Study Manual, the Australian Taxation Legislation Guide, and a calculator’. I said this because I didn’t have those materials currently with me, and I wanted to use my laptop because I didn’t trust the Chisholm computers. Riku didn’t necessarily appear to transport me like I expected but his energy started to amplify and there was a slight hologram of him in his KH3 appearance as I then seemed to suddenly be teleported to the location, with the requested materials magically appearing in a neat stack in my arms.

      Unlike in real life, the campus wasn’t in the correct suburb and was rather in the CBD of Melbourne. I first seemed to be hovering and looking at the campus from the outside, like Riku was yet to release me. Inside, I saw some familiar classmates already working at the computers, so it seemed that I was already late and had find to make my way to the examination room quickly. Social distancing protocols weren’t being measured either; people were sitting next to each other.

      The dream scene then changed and I seemed to be inside the distorted building, on Level. I had to make my way to Level 3 as that’s where the classrooms for our exams were. The only way to get to Level 3, like in real life, was via an elevator. I eventually found an elevator but it said that it leads to ‘MYER’ and so I grew a look of disgust as MYER was the last place I needed and was definitely not related to the exam.

      There were no other elevators around and so I figured I had to traverse the huge building (campus is really small in real life) to find another one. As I walked through Level 1 and 2, I realised the majority of this area of Chisholm was actually a public cinemas entreprise, not an education institution. I kept the look of disgust at all the irrelevent, pointless features of the campus, but a feeling of worry and panic started to increasingly build up as well. The scene ended and I never found my way to Level 3.

      I was though back in the library of my high school and as I walked through room, there were now other students around. Strangely, they were all crying for some reason and I could make out why. Everyone was wearing dresses and even though this is an all-girls school, there were boys in dresses too! I approached the library man at the desk to have myself marked off for the study period. In this dream he seemed nasty and asked my why some details weren’t there. I said that even though I was there, I was not enrolled as a student in a homeroom, and it hasn’t been that way since 2017 through to 2020.

      Eventually I was able to go to the year 12 study room next door again and there were people in there. There were two people that came up to me and spoke to me, and it was actually Sora and Kairi in uniform even though they didn’t actually identify themselves! Sora was the only boy in the dream not wearing a dress but proper shirt and pants instead, and even the navy blue jumper over the top. Sora asked on behalf of himself and Kairi about going to the Chisholm 311 campus because apparently they had the same exam there. I said that I was asking Riku (whom they seemed to not know in this dream) to take me and that he could take them too.

      I walked out of the room by myself and proceeded to ask Riku like last time; but I asked just for myself. I figured that once he had me at the campus; I would ask him to go and do another trip for Sora and Kairi. Just as Riku was fading into appearance to take me across to campus, the dream ended and I woke up.

    11. Dream - Heartless In The Sewers

      by , 06-25-2020 at 09:37 AM
      Date of Dream: TUE 9 JUN - 2020

      Dream No. 665(2) - Heartless In The Sewers

      The dream started with me in a series of narrow corridors which at first I thought was just the backstage complex of some building. However, I seemed to traverse it like I was some character in a game, in a slight running motion; and there was music playing. It was Boiler Room Doom from Crash Twinsanity. I looked at my surroundings, the brown metal flooring and the other equipment around, and realised that I was in ‘the sewers’ underground.

      I entered this one room however, and it looked like a mix between a costume prep room and a bathroom. I ended up looking into the mirror and noticed I was wearing the clothing that I drew for myself as a Kindgom Hearts character in real life. I then felt a negative enregy emanating from the outside corridors. The dream camera went to third-person and showed a big Kindgom Hearts heartless in armour standing right in the way in one of the passages.

      I felt slightly nervous about going out to deal with the heartless but at the same time, I had an idea of what I was going to do. I didn’t have a keyblade, but I found a chair that leaned against the door of the room I was in. I picked up the chair with both hands by the head and marched towards the heartless. The chair’s legs were repeatedly bashed at the heartless until it faded away and a small pink heart was released, meaning that I had killed it with the chair.

      With the heartless gone, I was able to put the chair down and continue my journey. From one of the other connected corridors came Riku in his Kingdom Hearts 1 appearance. He spoke but I forgot what he said in this scene, warm dream guide energy was emanating off him. For the rest of the scene, he continued behind me as we tried to find a way out of the sewer complex.

      As we headed out the door, Riku ended up turning into his 5 year old self and just as I was going to close the door, he panics and says in his child voice not to otherwise we wouldn’t be able to return. I had feeling from this that we would be indeed returning to ‘the sewers’ later in the dream. I checked the door to see if I had already inconvenienced us but apparently it required two pushes to close and I had only done one, so we were safe.

      The 5 year old Riku disappeared from my sight briefly but I decided to press on and see where we were. Upon looking at my surroundings, I couldn’t exactly identify the place, but it felt like the Notak city from Ratchet and Clank 2. I noticed that I was on some sort of urban walkway and there were steps leading to an open, desert-like area. I realised that this is where Riku and I were supposed to rendezvous with the rest of the Kingdom Hearts characters. As I headed towards the steps, I saw Aqua, Kairi and Axel in the distance; I knew the rest of them were also around.

      It wasn’t long before the dream had seemed to assume a successful rendezvous despite me not actually talking to anyone as Riku came back but he was now in his Kingdom Hearts 3 appearance. He spoke to me, suggesting that we indeed head back into the sewers. Apparently Riku and I were the only ones that had access. It felt as if it was mainly supposed to be my mission but Riku was assigned to be with me to protect me. Before I could open the door to re-enter the sewers, the dream had ended.

    12. Dream - I Can Do Better Than Him

      Dream No. 665 - I Can Do Better Than Him
      Lucid Dream 36

      I don’t remember how this dream started. From where I do remember, I was doing things around my house when I wanted to try and see Riku again. However like usual, these days, maintaining a stable dream environment seemed very difficult. The dream showed me actually lying in bed, like it was morning; and my grandma came into the room with a mischeivous smile on her face. She came up to the bed and started rapidly and forceully tapping at me to ‘wake me up’.

      The dream morphed to make me think I was now awake, but then I somehow managed to realise that I was still in it, and therefore I realised that I had become spontaneously lucid. The next segment in this dream would prove so, and I used this scene to be able to gain enough control so I could seek Riku with a clear intention. I took out my phone and went on the Discord forums to check messages from my friends.

      Every time I would look at the time, it was different, and not just by a minute. That’s when my lucidity really started to pick up. I then tried changing the time on purpose a few times. I finally declared that if I could command the time to be 1:07, I would be successful. I looked back and the time was 1:06, however, it only clicked over to 1:07 after a few seconds; so I deemed the command to be executed pretty accurately. I finally felt I was ready to go and look for Riku and left my bedroom to initiate the new venture.

      Initially, I was going to call Riku myself but then I walked past my dad in the sitting room next to the kitchen; so I asked him if he could help me find Riku. I was pleasantly surprised when my dad agreed and actually went off to look for Riku himself. He went onto the back verandah and said something, though I panicked as my dad was not asking for Riku by name, and so I was worried that the dream would interpret his request to summon somebody stupid. However, I perceived an energy wafting off my dad and into the house like he was confident he knew what was doing.

      However, I was still freaked out about the fact he didn’t specifically call for Riku, but I felt that Riku was coming, so I ran outside through the back door as fast as I could, in hopes that I would intercept Riku, with that fear of him passing right by. I sprinted to the bottom of the backyard but then I hear the verandah door opening, with Riku stepping out in his KH3 appearance and I was dumbfounded. So I realised he had appeared at the top of the backyard like I predicted but he went the opposite way to what I thought; straight into the house.

      He looked at me amused, like in a ‘silly girl’ kind of way. His clothes were as they as were in cutscenes; his t-shirt being purely white and his jacket in the dream looked like it was from black luxury suede. However, his pants were slightly different; they were plainly black with no belts and buckles on the legs. With my feeling of dumb surprise still wearing off; I moonjumped up over the rails and onto the verandah to go to Riku. He greeted me with a casual hug; not like last time where he almost squashed me to death. He was also rightly lankier and taller than me in this dream.

      What he did next, I wasn’t expecting though. As we went through the house to go out the back door, Riku picked me up and began to carry me. Then as he carried me down the sloping backyard again, I started to study how he felt. He was much thinner compared to 18-Volt and with the way Riku was holding me, some parts of his body felt rigid and uncomfortable to me. Heading into the lower part of the backyard, I remember saying to Riku “I think 18-Volt does a better job at carrying me”. Riku wasn’t offended but there was a feeling of ‘oh you think that do you?’ and as if he was now out to find a way to 1-Up 18-Volt; Riku was silent in this dream. Although Riku was more joltier and uncomfortable, he did have the advantage over 18-Volt of moving quicker.

      It’s when we got to the door to the garage that Riku struggled to hold me and open it at the same time. There was a time where I felt like I was almost going to fall backwards off him as he struggled to scoop me back up, but that all stopped when he finally opened the door and he perched me up on himself again. I could tell that Riku felt bad whenever he struggled with me as he was keeping in mind that 18-Volt was ‘better than him’. He continued to carry me precariously into the front yard and up the hill towards the local primary school.

      Part way up the hill, there became a point where Riku realised that he just wasn’t good at carrying me, and so he gave up and put me down; but he wasn’t done. This was the part where he was going to show that he was better than 18-Volt. He started to float and get into a hovering, sitting position; I knew he was going to take me somewhere. In-fact, I realised that he was going to take me to the world of Kingdom Hearts!

      He patted his hands on his lap, telling me to come and sit on him, so I did. However, as he started to ascend into the air, I couldn’t see his hands anywhere and so I panicked as once again, it felt like I was going to lose my balance and fall off him, but sideways in this case. I shouted in a fluster, telling Riku that I needed to be secured. I remember specifically saying “If you’re doing interdimensional travel, then you need to be wearing a seatbelt”. Riku finally realised, lowered us back down and put his arms around me as loosely as possible, still having no ‘secure’ effect whatsoever; like he still didn’t know what he was doing. I said “tighter” and so he tightened his grip slightly, but it wasn’t even near enough. So I kept saying “tighter” until I could finally feel his arms securely and there was no gap between them and my stomach; I remember I had to say it 5 times.

      He was finally then able to ascend into the day time sky and when he descended with me again, it still felt like the same area (the hill at the bottom of my court), but it wasn’t day or night. As Riku helped me off him, he told me that we were now in Kingdom Hearts; in this dimension he spoke, as if he was now confident because we were on his side of the realms. And in return, I now became unsure of myself in some ways, as well as where we were because I didn’t realise any difference.

      I kept asking in a confused tone ‘we’re in Kingdom Hearts?’ because I couldn’t see any sign that said so. That’s when Riku walked slightly down the hill with me and pointed into the sky as he said “there it is, that’s Kindgom hearts”. I looked up and realised the heart shaped moon in the sky; but to me, it seemed like it was the sun and the moon at the same time, hence no definitive day or night time. After I had examined it for long enough and the reality had set in, I turned my attention back to the streets and Riku began conversing with me. I couldn’t remember what he said but it seemed like he was telling me more about Kingdom Hearts, and he sounded very fond of the stories he was telling me.

      Eventually though, it seemed like Riku and I were all caught up, and for once, there was no longer a purpose for him to be around, and so he gave me a farewell and then actually walked off and left the scene, but I was satisfied. This was a lucid dream and so I realised I was still in control. I wanted to do more but I couldn’t think of anything to do, so I continued to walk aimlessly up the hill. As I got nearly to the top of the hill though, a sudden realisation had hit me and I needed Riku back; I remembered I wanted to ask him about his age as per the task I had set in my waking life dream journal. I became anxious as I thought I wouldn’t be able to get him back. After some hesitation, I urged out to the sky “Riku! One more question!”, hoping that I would be heard.

      Something happened; the dream turned into to an empty void, but an entirely white one, and I was all alone in it. But shortly, Riku appeared again (same KH3 appearance but in all default clothes including pants), but this time as somewhat of a giant; he was only two or three times bigger than me, but it was still an obvious discrepancy. He got on his knees and leant over me to hear what I had to say. Then I asked him “What is your age between the number of 16 and 25?”. At first, he didn’t seem to get what I was saying but after I repeated the question, he got it, but didn’t seem to receive it well.

      His anxiety spiked through the roof as the question had seemed to catch him off-guard; almost like he wanted to prepare an answer before-hand but couldn’t. His eyes (and eyebrows) gained the look of sheer horror as he rapidly mumbled and stuttered but managed to utter out an “18” amongst it all. It’s almost like he knew I was going to lock his age once he said it, and so he did not want to make the decision so impulsively. He continued babbling nonsense afterwards like he thought I wouldn’t be satisfied with his response. Being lucid, I knew he needed to stop and calm down, so I said over the top of him, “It’s okay. Thank you Riku” in which he then was able to stop but still looked flustered. Then I came in and put my hands on his sides, trying to hug the giant Riku in which his panic competely stopped and he looked rather delighted. Now I was truly done and the dream took me back to the hill.

      I started to slowly walk back down the hill and while doing so, reflected on the previous scene. The emotions were raw as I recall how panicked Riku was. I then thought that perhaps I wouldn’t lock in his age straight away; that I would assume he was 18 but allow him a revision when he would be feeling more confident. Then I finally had nothing else to do as I stared off into the distance of what seemed to be a mix of my suburb and Twilight town (the Kingdom Hearts sky was now pinkish with an actual sun on the horizon); so I declared to wake up.

    13. Dream - Tax Torture & Welcome Kingdom Hearts

      Date of Dream: TUE 26 MAY - 2020

      Dream No. 661 - Separated Sections

      Dream 661 A - Tax Torture

      I don’t remember much about this dream. From where I can remember, my dad and I were at a large gathering at somebody else’s house. Although, I couldn’t actually participate in the gathering as my university had overloaded me with work for the tax subject. That’s all I can remember about this dream.

      Dream 661 B - Welcome Kingdom Hearts

      I don’t remember how this dream started. From where I do remember, I was in some unknown car with my brother when I started talking to him about how I was being bullied on a Discord server. It wasn’t long before we changed topics and I told my brother that I wanted him to meet my newest dream guide and from this point on, I was set on finding him. We got home and as promised, I was going to look for my new dream guide so my brother could meet him. However, my brother was getting impatient and irrespective of how much I begged, he walked off into the house while I was still struggling outside.

      Even if my brother was gone, I was still set on finding my new dream guide. I paused for a while and this motivation all of a sudden hit me, like I felt it was a dream but didn’t necessarily become lucid either. I was somehow teleported to the top of the backyard and walked down the slope as I started calling for Riku. For the moment, there was no luck, but I was able to keep persevering as I took it slowly when I realised the dream was trying to wake me up. Still no sign of Riku, so I decided to try something different and call once for Sora in-case he’d perhaps come instead and pass me onto Riku; Sora didn’t come either.

      I then thought I’d go and try in the front yard because it was more out in the open and so I’d be heard. Through the door to the garage I went and then onto the stone brick driveway as I called out loud and clearly for Riku one more time. As I was about to bellow in the front yard a second time, I saw a young man with medium-short grey hair slowly walking up the court; it was Riku in his KH3 appearance.

      He wasn’t coming up quick enough and I couldn’t contain my excitement, I anxiously waited, watching from the end of the driveway as he crossed the road. As soon as he stepped onto the footpath in front of my house, I ran up to him and hugged him. I thought he wouldn’t respond well but he actually hugged me harder than I did him, so much so that in real life I wouldn’t be able to breathe but I was perfectly fine in the dream world. The only problem was that he was shorter than me instead of taller and the dream gave him somewhat bristly skin.

      As I walked with him back across the driveway, I wondered if my brother would ever show up, but he never did. However, when we were in the house, I caught sight of my dad and urged him a like a little girl to ‘meet my new dream guide’. Riku gave a slight smile at my antics and looked humble as he approached my dad and they shook hands with each other. He then continued to go with me, in which I led him into the front sitting room.

      In the dream, the front room had its old appearance; with the old plaid red couches and also the fact that the room was carpeted. What was different though is that the big couch could be converted into a sofa-bed. My mum seemed to already be in there, sitting on the couch off to the side, but her and Riku didn’t really associate much. In-fact she wasn’t as welcoming to Riku like my dad was. Riku sat himself on the middle cushion and invited me to come and sit on his lap.

      As I got comfortable on him, he closed me in with his arms. That’s when the couch, with no explanation, turned into the sofa-bed and there was a blanket over our lower half. I felt mostly comfortable, however, as we were sitting up and my head was tucked under his, my neck was strained in looking down. My mum used this negatively though as she said something like “isn’t that uncomfortable?” and further dialogue that I have forgotten, in a really obnoxious tone. I told her that although my neck might be strained, my back and lower half were perfectly fine. She then got up and walked out of the room, suggested she was going to leave us to our business.

      That’s when Riku pulled out not a keyblade, but rather his black iPhone out of one of his pockets and started playing some music off YouTube. He gave me a casual, laid back look, suggesting that he wanted me to chill with him as he showed me some cool stuff that he liked. The music he played was a weird style that I don’t know how to describe in real life; it sounded similar to music I would listen to but then I didn’t like it. I didn’t say anything as I didn’t want to be rude to him but it was so torturous that I screwed my face and cringed as hard as I could. He eventually stopped the music though as I think he could tell I wasn’t enjoying it and I gave a huge sigh of relief. He looked like he wanted to do other stuff with me but then the dream ended.

    14. Dream - Too Tall Is Too Scary

      Dream No. 657 - Too Tall Is Too Scary

      I don’t remember much about this dream. From where I do remember, I was walking from outside into what seemed to be some sort of library; the space was small, warm and inviting, and in the shape of a circular room. As I was wondering around, fixing my gaze on various books, 18-Volt came in, in his realistic Game & Wario appearance but took it further by having real human flesh, real textured clothes, and real glasses. He was wearing a black singlet with black pants.

      There was immediately this warm and comforting energy when 18-Volt approached me excitedly and waited for me to turn around and notice him. As soon as I did notice him, he immediately spread his arms out to hug me. However, as he was holding me in the hug, he grew extremely tall and I did not like this. I looked up and panicked, begging for 18-Volt to be brought back down to his original height; I thought it was only appropriate that a dream guide is slightly taller than me, but not by three times or to the roof.

      The dream kept making 18-Volt intimidatingly tall a few times but I just kept asking for him to be brought back down again. When the dream stopped messing around with 18-Volt, he held me in a tight hug for what seemed like almost a minute. I can’t remember anything else about this dream.

      Dream No. 656 - Double Dream Guide Bench

      I don’t remember much about this dream. From where I do remember, I was at an unknown high school but in the dream, I was enrolled in this school, however doing things at university difficulty. Most of the time, I was out of the classroom and going across to different rooms to talk to different people for different reasons. I can remember locations and fractions visually but not enough to put them into words.

      When it got towards the end of the dream, I was in a stressful situation but it wasn’t a crisis; however, I had the thought of calling for Dreamy EBo. It was when I got to a distorted version of Waverley Gardens Shopping Centre that I then actually decided to call him. I entered to the bottom of the escalators from the undercover Coles carpark when I called Dreamy EBo, but the dream immediately muted me and I couldn’t get his name clearly across.

      I thought I had no chance but 18-Volt suddenly appeared on my left. At first I thought he was going to help me instead but it seemed as though 18-Volt knew what I wanted, as Dreamy EBo appeared on my right shortly after, fading into vision like he was a ghost. It felt like 18-Volt gave half his energy to Dreamy EBo, allowing them to coexist and function. 18-Volt was wearing his default green jacket and tracksuit pants and Dreamy EBo was wearing a red jersey over a blue short-sleeved t-shirt and black and white cap which I deem to be his default outfit, the boys were also both wearing their default glasses.

      Both 18-Volt and Dreamy EBo began to be able to fly and got right up next to me. From this I was lifted up by their collective energy, made to sit on them as it were. To be more precise, they both put their arms out in-front of them and linked them with each other, as if to make a combined bench. From a physical point of view, it looked like I could fall backwards or forwards off them but it never happened as both their energies were keeping me securely in place.

      Once I got comfortable on 18-Volt’s and Dreamy EBo’s makeshift arm bench, they began to move off, going faster than the speed of the escalator itself. The dream camera didn’t move with us but rather continued playing from the bottom and showing them ascend me off into the distance. Once were out of view from the dream camera, then dream ended.
