    LD: We are four guys in some city in the past like the 30-50s in the winter. It feels as if we belong to a gangster organization or so and have just walked away from this store where we got some expensive long winter coats, mine was grey, the other guy's white, without paying. A group of other men is standing nearby, ready to come after us.

    I become lucid but decide to play along (didn't check on my body if I was still a guy) and allow them to go after us and get the gang to start running. The bad guys slowly start coming in our direction, while we are discussing how to escape. I see a large city river running between the buildings and decide I will use it as a quick way out. My companions are a bit unsure of this, but they follow me as I go ahead with the idea I have in mind. Not quite sure if it will work, but it does. Just as I wanted, the surface of the river freezes and we get on the ice, gliding forward for couple of seconds, then walking and running. I turn back to check on the bad guys, they still seem to be in the distance. I try to manipulate the thought of where they will be. Yet, since they only seem to exist when I turn back, they are at a random distance each time. From what I can remember, the river turns into a melting snow street, I feel the dream destabilizing and try to control my speed. At some point I am running very fast, but it feels really weird as I don't feel my body the same way, whatever.

    I lose track of some of my companions, then I remember I wanted to summon a horse (or raindeer) and this will be the perfect opportunity to use it to to ride faster than the chasers. Not sure how to proceed about this since I am still running, I pretend that I am already on a horse and feel as if I am riding it. The guy from our group in front of me is now riding a horse and I get the feeling that I am too. This whole thing is happening too fast for me to notice what's below, my vision is shaking from the movement and I look to the side to see if I am at a higher distance from the ground and I am. It feels as if I am riding a horse, but I am sure that there's no horse. Oh, well.

    We soon reach the end of the road, get inside ? At this point the dream is quite unstable and things change a lot. I still check if the chasers are after us, and of course they are. Trying to use my eyes to spot the best place to go, I look for a place that looks more appealing. Some sort of flooded sewer, no. I just want a place where the dream continues on the street. As I look around everything closes and becomes dead end. Oops. I wonder what to do, contemplating a phase if things get too heated up and but turn around and decide to face them. The chasers are now here (since I kept thinking about them) and this guy carrying a large spiked club is getting closer. At this point, I conclude I went way too far with this "game" and mentally prepare being hit with the club. Then I remember that CL didn't feel any pain in a recent dream and maybe nothing will happen after all. The guy swings at me, but indeed nothing happens, did he even hit me?

    I decide the moment is good to practice some kung fu. Another attacker approaches and we get into a struggle, but he's too hard to move initially. I still manage to throw him on the ground 2 times yet he doesn't seem to be hurt. I get distracted by thoughts and leave him standing, contemplating how are we (there is no we, but I still follow the scenario) going to deal with the bad guys. As soon as I think about us, my companions are back, but different DCs, we are five now, with a female classmate of mine being part of the team. Each of us will deal with each of them (they are four). Now there's this completely different DC attacker and I start getting a completely different idea of how to deal with him, we can seduce him with my classmate. This thought is enough and he is no longer menacing and I have other things on my mind. At this point and probably for the best, the dream ends.

      I can relate to the phantom horse part. A lot of ny summons are all physical and it takes awhile for the visual to catch up. Usually it doesn't matter as in your case. Nice dream though. Freezing the river was a cool idea.

      All right, I'm glad to see that you were having great lucids like this one while I was caught up in my whirlwind of holiday craziness! I've got some catching up to do!

      Love the way you handled the chase. And everything really... you had great awareness that this was a game with rules that you could either control or push heavily in your favor. The river freeze and the conjuring of a horse for everyone the ride were both great.

      I'm glad you also didn't feel any pain! We can include "spiked clubs" and "laser beams" to the list of stuff in dreams that totally can't hurt us.

      Thanks, CL! And I am always impressed by your hotel lds!

      Yeah, the holidays can be really exhausting. Had no time for meditation or visualization as I had to meet lots of relatives & friends and consume huge amounts of food with them, so these lds really made my holidays.

      Happy New Year! Hope we manage to recover from the holiday frenzy quickly and will soon be generating lots of awesome entries! I'm looking forward to your next lucidity burst!

      No kidding, I was having such a hard time maintaining any good awareness practices during the holidays! I'm really impressed you kept it up in spite of the fact that you had a holiday which sounds very much like mine.

      Thanks, I'm looking forward to it too! I actually had a pair of lucids New Year's Day but haven't had the chance to record them yet! Was hoping I accidentally completely a task in them but no, just checked...

      Cool dream along with the horse!

      BTW the chasers must have been on B6!

      Lol about the B6. Yeah, they must have taken it while I was freezing the river.
