    Facing a Fun Lucid Turned Frightening

    Dream - Lucid

    I was at work, standing behind my register, though it looked more like a grocery store mixed with the department store I work at. We were ungodly slow. My manager came up because I guess I had a problem with something, and I asked her how she was doing as she helped me ring up someone's stuff. She said "Good, you?" I responded with the same, saying I was good. We then worked in silence, and she came across some sweatpants with more than one security tag on them..3 to be exact. She didn't seem to notice them, so I pointed them out to her. We traded places and I got the tags off. She told me I was doing a good job at some point in all this, and I said thank you. I also remember looking at my computer screen and seeing that I hadn't gotten any credits, but I had gotten 7.7 emails. I thought that the 7.7 was kind of weird. I couldn't think of how that could happen...

    Then, back to the slowness. I kept falling asleep behind my register it was so bad. Something then happened with my computer, and it was acting funny. I kept typing things in, and I'd see logos from other stores, like Toys R Us, advertising sales and such.

    I then realized I was dreaming. I typed in a whole bunch of things in the computer to see what would come up. No matter what I typed, I'd get some sort of logo. I remember typing some inappropriate things, though I can't remember what.

    I then went to go look around. There were other people in the store as well. I saw some hand soaps on display, so I decided to pick some out. I picked out a pink one with a butterfly on the label, and some others. I read the labels, but I can't remember what they said. I had my arms full with all the soaps I picked out; I needed a basket. I tried to pick up this teal basket that was for sale, but my arms were too full to get it. So I thought to myself "When I turn this corner, there will be a basket". I concentrated on this thought, and then, I started to notice buggies that were empty and laying around. I noticed a smaller black one that resembled the ones we have in the store IWL. It was by a frozen goods section of the store. It was made for a child to sit in it as well. I thought that one was perfect. I put the soaps down into the child's seat and started to roll the buggy through the aisles.

    I then saw the back of what looked like my friend Caitlin's head. She was also rolling a buggy around and shopping. I passed her, then turned around and saw that it was, in fact, Caitlin. I said
    "Hey, girl!"
    She replied
    And I started to walk next to her. I then said to her
    "You know this is a dream, right?"
    and she replied,
    I then said
    "You know you are in my dream, right? Our minds are touching."
    She replied with
    "Yes. I have my theory on that. Minds can only touch for 2-3 minutes."
    I liked that answer. This rarely happens with DCs for me; usually they stare blankly at me when I mention the fact that we're dreaming.

    I guess we decided to take advantage of the 2-3 minutes, because Caitlin then said
    "Follow me!", and she started to run.
    I ran after her. We were in the back of the store by the beer. In that section, the floor was made entirely of beer can boxes. I had a good speed until I hit the boxes, and then I could barely run. She seemed to be having no trouble, however. She turned a corner into an area that returned to the normal, tiled floor. She was laughing, so I guess she was having fun.

    Then, we approached a wall. I wanted to go through the wall with her, though I knew our time together was running short. I rolled my buggy to the wall, and pushed it. It went straight through with no problem. I asked Caitlin to go with me, but she seemed reluctant because the time limit was running short. I convinced her to follow, however, and I went through the wall first, with her behind me.

    We were then in a dim, alley-like hallway. I walked ahead and turned a corner. I looked behind me, and she was no longer with me. Oh well. I walked ahead, and approached a pitch-black area. I felt very unnerved; there was something there...

    I then woke up briefly, and did not move or open my eyes, and ended up in another dream. I knew I was dreaming upon entering it, seeing as I had DEILDed. I was now in a dim-dark area, staring at my reflection in some glass double doors. My expression in the reflection was very frightened. I was also wearing an off-white, knitted winter hat resembling one I own IWL. Hmm...the expression did not change.

    I examined my surroundings, and I was standing in front of some store. There was a whole row of glass double doors in front of me. Behind the doors, I could see nothing but black. Below me, on the ground, was a tiled surface.

    I then heard footsteps on the tile, and a male voice from behind the door.
    "Could someone please let me out?" it said.
    I opened the door, and stared into the blackness. I heard the steps coming closer, and I briefly panicked, and backed away from the door.

    I then thought to myself
    "This is a dream. Whatever is there can't hurt me."

    I approached the door again, so I was standing right in front of the abyss. A tall shadow in the shape of a man approached me. He then lunged at me, knocking me back. He was on top of me, almost "one" with me; he was a shadow after all, and had no mass. I felt this intense blow of panic and fear as I was knocked back and he was on top of me/with me/trying to merge with me. I then woke up.

    Epic dream was epic. I have had quite a few epic dreams lately, actually. However, I am very busy at school and literally have no time to write anything down. I will keep up with this the best I possibly can, but the updates will probably be few and far between. I will tell you that I have been having a surprising number of lucid dreams lately. I think it is the new meds I am on that are causing this epicness, or at least they are aiding with it. You don't see me complaining!

      Congratulations on the lucid, Krista! Don't you love the LDs you get to spend w/ the DC of a favorite person? Especially when they're "fully animated", interactive, and their IWL personalities can really pop.

      It's good to see you back around the Dream Journal section again. You probably got to miss those dark couple of months where Dream Journal comments weren't working.

      Say... these "new meds" wouldn't happen to be available over the counter, would they? Good luck with school, and congratulations on the recent epicness!

      I understand what it's like to be busy with school but I'm glad you found the time to write down your dream. It was interesting to read how people usually react when you tell them that it's a dream because the same thing usually happens to me
      It sounds like you had a good time!

      CanisLucidus-Thanks!!! It was quite the awesome LD. And it is good to be back. I had no idea there was a time when comments weren't working...I do see that they updated the DJ section of the site though. That's going to take some getting used to! And hahaha no, they aren't available over the counter. It's Remeron, an antidepressant. One of the side effects listed is "abnormal dreams"...the only side effect I'd ever want from a medicine is now happening to me! Though my dreams are never what you would consider "normal" as it is. They are just...different, more vivid, and I am more aware.

      apurtell-Thanks for the comment! I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who has that issue with DCs!

      Heh heh, I hear you on that. Sounds like the best "side effect" of all time. It's funny what people think of as a "negative" side effect. I remember having a conversation with a guy who told me he quit taking his B-complex vitamins before bed because it was making his "dreams too vivid". I guess some people are just looking to black out for eight hours every day!

      And yeah, comments were messed up for almost two months during the end of last year and start of 2013. OpheliaBlue did some awesome work in driving the issue forward and swakefield performed some sort of admin-level magic that got things going again. (That whole upgrade deal was a little rough.) It's been great having em back -- so many of the ideas and concepts that I've picked up have come from DJ comment discussions.

      Enjoy those epic dreams!
