    1. Mirrors and Fireworks (Advanced TOTM)

      by , 06-23-2015 at 12:32 AM (Ophelia's Book O' Fun II)
      I've been sick, so I slept all day with lucid goals on my mind. The funny thing is, that delirious me thought one of the tasks was fireworks, but I still managed to do the mirror one.

      Anyway, I vaguely recall a conversation with a DC where I suddenly became aware I was dreaming. But I don't remember if it was something she said or if it was just a feeling. Anyway, I was in a hallway at the time, and at the end of the hall were 2 mirrors. I stared at my reflection, and like many times, it looked like a younger, slimmer, longer-haired version of myself. I was wearing a really baggy t-shirt like I used to in college, and my long hair all one length and combed down with a power-part like the granola girl that I was lol. Satisfied, I thought about going through the mirror, then thought "nah I always do that." So I tried something different: I noticed the DC was coming after me in a kind of playful "I'm gonna get ya!" fashion. So I squealed and jumped through the ceiling, successfully phasing through it.

      I was in a residential neighborhood, with a few large houses and no trees or grass or landscaping of any kind, and really hot dry and sunny. I dream this scenery alot, and it reminds me of the neighborhood where I grew up. We moved into our house before the rest of the neighborhood was really all that developed, so there were few houses and all the yards were just dirt. I guess it's a fairly easy, simple environment to create in dreams.

      Anyway, I jumped down off the roof, using some kind of large pipe to slow the descent. I still have height issues, even in LDs, so I've found ways to work around them. I got to the curb and for some reason believed that creating a firework was one of the TOTMs. I know it was for past July tasks, so with July 4th around the corner I guess that's why it just popped in there. So I was standing on the curb, and pointed to the street, fully expecting a firework to appear without a smidgen of doubt. One appeared, the size of a large button. I willed it to light itself, then watched as it shot into the air. It was pretty sunny, and at first all I could see was a bunch of smokey dots, kind of like what you see in the sky after a firework burns itself out. Then there was a flash, and the firework became a large arc of rainbow, surrounded by fluffy clouds and another rainbow that encircled the first one. I applauded lol. Then since the dream was still going, I went on to do tawdry things..

    2. A "WILD" Tree (basic totm)

      by , 06-11-2015 at 01:18 AM (Ophelia's Book O' Fun II)
      Ok I typed a bunch of this up, then left the room and Sofie sat on the keyboard and messed up my whole world.

      I had a nap WILD, phased through my bedroom wall, got a little stuck, got outside, saw a tree, climbed it, got to the top, but I was too heavy for it and it bent over and I was back on the ground lol.

      Then I WILDed again and called Lee Pace on my cell phone and he showed up in a sports car and we made out until he disappeared and I woke up.

    3. A WILDy DEILDy Basic TOTM Nap

      by , 02-25-2015 at 01:08 AM (Ophelia's Book O' Fun II)
      Decided to take a nap in the living room while Chris was on xbox in the same room. So I'd drift in and out, but I never moved nor opened my eyes. It was weird, it felt like it would have taken effort to open my eyes fully, but I could hear Chris's voice the ENTIRE time.

      Anyway, so the 4th or 5th time I felt like I was asleep, but still on the couch, I decided to stand up and walk to the front door. I couldn't get to where I could see very well, but I knew the front door was only a few feet from the couch, so I just kinda felt my way there. Plus I could hear Chris as if from my right hear, hollering at the xbox, so I knew I was going the right direction. I opened the front door, half wondering if Chris would notice. But he didn't, so I was more sure that I was dreaming. I even waved my hands in front of my closed/blind eyes, and could see a little bit.

      I walked down the sidewalk, towards the mailbox (which I couldn't see yet and which doesn't exist irl anyway, because we have those stupid group mailboxes on every block like they do now in alot of neighborhoods). I was thinking of the valentine card totm. I got to the end of the sidewalk, fully expecting to feel for a mailbox, blind or not, when I got some vision back. It was super sunny. I looked all directions but saw nothing, then when I turned around, I couldn't see any houses at all lol. Then I turned around again, and saw a little house that could count as mine. So I walked up to the porch and had a hard time seeing again. I felt along the wall by the door, thinking to myself "I know that mailbox is right about HERE" and then I found one of those little mailboxes that you hang on the wall. I reached inside and felt a few things in a stack. The first was a letter and the rest were poofy pink and red heart stickers. On the outside of the letter, it was written in pencil and clearly a child's handwriting. It was alot of letters, but it didn't make up any words. I opened it and inside was a little valentine cartoon comic. The first frame was a purple hippo, pointing to the right. The caption underneath said "The shortest time pointing ever!" The last frame was a pink dog with little red hearts all around his head, like he was in love with the purple hippo or something. Then it said "Happy Valentine's Day," but no signature.

      Then I felt myself on the couch,
      and decided to force my eyes open for real. The second I did that, the dogs that were sleeping on me irl jumped off me and started barking at the door, because FedX had dropped off a letter haha! It's not valentine's though. But the weird thing too was: the door was open O_O And I'm pretty sure I closed it before I took my nap. I asked Chris but he doesn't notice anything when he's on xbox.

      And I could hear his voice, the entire time. Really interesting lucid for me. I feel almost like it kept me TOO grounded irl, and maybe that's why I couldn't see well, idk if related.
    4. DILD - Advanced TOTM

      by , 01-04-2015 at 05:16 AM (Ophelia's Book O' Fun II)
      I took a nap after work, which was right after my boss dropped me off at home irl. In the nonlucid part of the dream, instead of dropping me off, he took me back to his house because his wife needed him to attend to the kids, and take out trash and some other random shit. FINALLY when it was time to go, he just grabbed a snack and sat down in front of the TV, and I was like "Dood, gotta get home to my kid!" He was like "OH ok" and jumped up. As we went outside (and this was really weird), I saw a red bird fly by the yard. For some weird reason, I felt like it was a dream sign lol. I've never seen this red bird before that I can recall, but in the dream I felt like I had been dupped by it before. I'll take it! So I just said "See ya Mike," and decided to fly. Then I thought of the fly backwards totm! But my vision went bye bye. So I sat down in lotus position (wtf), but ended up waking up.

      I fell back to sleep and I don't remember the start of this second dream, but I DO recall seeing Angeline Jolie in my room, and another guy. The 3 of us decided to go to the shower for a 3some. As I passed the mirror in my bathroom, my reflection was the most amazing gorgeous man I have ever seen. Like holy wow gorgeous. I got lucid from that. I flexed a bit, then I looked like me again. So I left the bathroom and recalled the backwards totm again. I was in the livingroom, and we have a giant mirror there. I looked at myself in the mirror, and just started walking backwards. Easy peasy. Although, my reflection decided to be more creative. It walked backwards properly as I did, but then it backwardsly climbed up onto some furniture that was in the reflection, but not on my side, if that makes sense. Then my reflection started to have some japanese horror little-girl look to it, and it gave me goose bumps. This is cool: I could feel them on my sleeping body, the goosebumps. And so I looked at my dream arm, but no goosebumps. I remarked how I could feel them irl, but not see them in the dream. I looked up at the mirror again and could see a man's naked body behind me. I turned to look, but no one was there. I looked at the mirror again, and he was there. So I reached behind me and it was an old dude and I could feel his old weewee all hard and old lol. I kinda squealed and left the room. I don't remember anything else.
    5. Creepy Cool WILD + Basic TOTM

      by , 11-06-2014 at 07:55 PM (Ophelia's Book O' Fun II)
      I was doing my usual really late sleeping in WBTBs, and I started getting the usual vibrations. But this time it was accompanied by some little demonic sounds. As I was transitioning, little demon voices started talking right beside my night stand haha! I understood completely that they were not real, but you know how you can feel more vulnerable in bed and get scared easy? Well I just felt like NOT starting my LD, and rather just crawl in deeper under my covers. But I resisted the urge and allowed the demon voices to do their thing. I don't have to look that direction if I don't want to. The dream had basically already started, I just needed to crawl out of the bed.

      I got up, left the room and my little demon buddies behind, and went down the hall into the living room. Light wasn't good, it was that early morning dull light. I could see 2 of my dogs on the couch, and I went over to Daisy and pet her and cooed at her a bit. The blinds on my living room window were closed, but it looked like there was really bright full sunlight starting to stream though. So I flew across the living room, and fly-phased (my new thing) through the living room window and landed outside.

      It was the typical for my front yard in lucids: 8am sunny and bright, and sparkly as if it had rained all night. No DCs anywhere. I waited too long to record this dream, but I remember just fiddling with random shit in the front yard. I even started getting bored because it got dark and cloudy again, and there were no DCs, and I couldn't think of a totm. I finally thought of Percy and recalled the leaves basic task he posted. There weren't many leaves on the ground, and it was kinda muddy still. But I gathered as many leaves as I could with a couple big arm swoops, and made a pile that was as big as me surface-area-wise, but maybe 2 inches tall at best. I just kinda flopped down on them, and instead of a satisfying soft crunch like you would hope, it was an unsatisfying wet, matted down sound. Yay lol.

      I saw some neighbors appear next door, so I went to go talk to them, relieved for a chance to get unbored. I followed them into their house and I don't remember much else.
      Pretty sure I lost lucidity then woke up.

    6. TOTM... uh, DILD?

      by , 10-10-2014 at 04:40 PM (Ophelia's Book O' Fun II)
      This has been happening to me alot recently, where I don't recall how I got lucid. I remember going through some WILD transitions (vibrations), but I don't recall it kicking over. So I probably went into a nonlucid and got lucid later, or semi lucid, just don't remember.

      What I do remember (besides inhaling nachos, fajitas, fried lobster medallions, and margaritas last night), is that I thought "What was one of the TOTMs? Oh yeah, look inside a pumpkin!" I was already wandering around outside, so I thought to myself how I was able to summon things better with this new trick: instead of begging or hoping or wishing for a pumpkin to appear, I just said to myself, "I'm going to go check out that pumpkin that's behind that rock". Sure enough, there was a pumpkin. But it was cubic, and it rotted away when I touched it. (Funny, at Trios Grill where I had dinner last night, they had a few pumpkins and gords outside in the front, and I remember thinking one was rotten at first because it was one of those super bumpy ones.) "Ok, I'll try the one behind that other rock." It was a normal, large round pumpkin, which felt a little soft but not rotten. It was soft enough that I was able to pry off the top. It was filled with normal pumpkin guts and seeds. I was a little crestfallen, and I recall wishing there had been more to it.

      Then suddenly, under the pumpkin guts in the center, a chunk of guts started vibrating, and making a rattlesnake tail noise. I pushed the guts to one side, and there was a bug there. Then I said in a Gollum voice "Oh! A BEASTY!!!" (I swear I'll record that, just how I said it in the dream lol.) It was a bug thata looked just like the one OmKAR linked to in irc the other day. It looked like a cricket with a super long butt thorn, and it crawled in this guy's ear. They had to use tweezers to pull it out of the guy's ear, and when they did, the critter tried to hold on to the guy's earlobe because ti didn't want to leave it's home. Anyway, then in the dream, I felt something buzzing and tickling in my left ear. I knew right away what it was. I reached up and could immediately feel a butt thorn. I pulled it out and flicked it away no problem. But then there was another, and another and another. 4 or 5 I don't remember. But it was enough for me to call a time out, because I knew exactly where that was gonna take me. To 50 continuous ear bugs and a one way ticket to Wake-up-ville. You guys know what I'm talking about. So I just just thought "Meh, it only tickles a little bit, I'll just ignore it." Which worked beautifully.

      I decided to go flying. The pumpkins I found were near a lake, so I flew over the water, a few meter above it, trying to think of another task. Funny thing is, conquering water is on the list, and I'm flying over water, and it doesn't hit me lol. Which is just as well because humongous, mammoth sized dino-fish could be seen just beneath the surface. And when I say dinofish, I don't mean plesiosaur or some ancient shark.. I mean a giant T-Rex. With fins. Think of a T-Rex mermaid. And it could leap out the water like a killer shark. It couldn't get quite as high as me, but high enough where I could smack it in it's head and knock it back down in the water. Halp Yeah, even if I'd thought of the task, I wouldn't have put one pinky toe in THAT water.

      I'm still lucid, and this thing jumping at me a few times made me think I want to wake up. But I also kinda don't. I looked up and saw a pretty, partially cloudy sky and thought of just flying higher. But that's another one of my dream phobias: flying up high, and fast and falling, or ending up in creepy outerspace or something. So there I was, trapped between 2 dream phobias. Then I woke up. This advanced task is gonna be tricky...

      Then I had a fantastic nonlucid about a sexy teacher that I'll post later.

    7. My Patronus and My Fortune - TOTM WILDs

      by , 09-04-2014 at 07:56 PM (Ophelia's Book O' Fun II)
      I had a really loooong WBTB. I went to bed probably 1am, then woke up at about 7am and didn't go back to sleep until 11:30ish! I tried everything to go back to sleep: incubating dreams, relaxation techniques, clearing my mind, filling my mind, solo sexy time.. nothin. Finally Danny came back from working out and took a shower, and as soon as he left the room after his shower, I began to drift off and felt some vibrations.

      As the vibrations cycled a couple times, I let the HH version of a fish bite my hands. I felt like it was anchoring me for some reason. Anyway, I started out in my bed lucid as usual, and thought right away of the toilet task. So I went to the master bathroom, and lifted the lid. There was a little pee and bit of toilet paper in there, np I'll just flush it. Then I lifted the rim, and there was some pee on it as well, so I took some tp and wiped it off and flushed it. But then it started backing up, and a TON of poop was coming up. I thought of grabbing the plunger, but I was like "I'm not wasting lucid time on this. Even if I plunge it, I'm not going down there now." So I walked back into the bedroom, trying for the life of me to recall the other tasks, but I just couldn't. So I messed with my masculinity for a few minutes then woke up.

      Fortunately, I felt like I could go right back to sleep. So as I was drifting off and feeling the vibrations again, I thought real hard and recalled Robin Williams, fortune cookie, and Patronus tasks. I let the HH version of my cat Gibby bite my hand this time as I transitioned. (I'm trying to play with forming HH stuff so I don't have to rely on vibrations). Anyway, started out in my room again lucid, struggled with the blankets a bit with a sleeping Gibby on the bed. I got up and don't recall how I got to the living room, or some room. It was filled with toys and crap. I picked up something that looked like a long, thin cone. I thought it would work as a magic wand. As I was deliberating over it, I noticed an unsavory shadowy figure in the room. I decided to test a Patronus on him. I aimed the wand at him and yelled "Expecto Patronum!" fully expecting a Dragon Patronus like I wanted. Nothin. I need to have a happy thought too, along with the expectation. It is EXPECTo Patronum, after all. I did it again, louder, and thinking of a certain someone (KM) from college. A bunch of silvery-purple sparkles appeared in the air just in front of my wand, then dropped to the floor. I thought they were about to condense and form some animal Patronus. But all they did was turn into an army of He-man toys that started coming at me haha! I ran across the room and tried again, louder, with an even stronger feeling in my heart along with the memory of KM. I mean I SCREAMED the incantation. A silvery-purple outline of a large animal formed, studded with silvery-purple sparkles. It got denser until it took on the shape of silvery-purple cloudlike Unicorn! A UNICORN!!! Best little girl fantasy ever!!!

      It was galloping toward me as it was becoming more corporeal. I just held out my arms because I wanted to pet it and hug it sooooooooo bad, but then she vanished.
      And I woke up.

      I started drifting off again, but immediately went into a nonlucid where I was walking down the street outside in broad daylight. I got to our house and there was a huge Christmas tree in the front yard. It had a candycane like ornament on it, and I broke off a long piece, thinking that it would be good to use for the Patronus task again. I started questioning if I was dreaming, but I just wasn't 100% sure. I went into the house and tried the spell again anyway, because I wanted my unicorn lol. As I was trying and trying, I suddenly heard my son Chris in another room, saying "HAHA who's screaming Harry Potter quotes around the house?!" I was so embarrassed, was I doing this iwl? I ran into the hall bathroom and stood up on the toilet as I could hear my son barreling down the hall. I thought I would just scare the crap out of him once he walked by, which I did, and he dropped a bunch of fast food and ran off lol. I went back to the hall and walked until I ended up in the family room, and there was another christmas tree. Whaaaaat? It's not christmas. Lucid! I decided to give up the Patronus totm for now since I already did it, and thought of the fortune cookie totm. I recalled that Chris has some fast food, so I went into the kitchen, saying to myself "I'm going to look in one of the boxes of left over Chinese food that's still in there." And sure enough, there were some styro-foam boxes stacked up on the kitchen floor. I opened the first one and set it on the stove, and there were wrapped fortune cookies right inside. *highfive subC!* Some were broken, but at least 2 were in tact. I opened the first one, and at first I saw the word "Important" on the little white strip of paper. But when I unfolded it all the way, it just said "2, 3, uhhh, 4" Wow. I opened the second one, and a large square of paper was inside. Here's what it said:

      So, you think you're a dirty boy?
      (972) ###-####
      After reading that, I just propped up my head on the stove and laughed so hard. I laughed until I could feel my eyes crying, in the dream. A true lucid cry laugh haha. Wow. I know now what my subC truly thinks of me: I'm either so lost that I can't even count properly, or I'm a dirty boy. Or at least I think I am. Doodle doodle toss toss, ladies and gentlemen.

      I woke up from that still loling, and that was that.

    8. Eyeball Pop-Out, TOTM DILD

      by , 08-12-2014 at 10:51 PM (Ophelia's Book O' Fun II)
      Grossssssssssssssssssssssssssssss....... :hurl:

      Ok here's what happened: I remember being in the car with my real dad, driving down the highway. It suddenly dawned on me that I shouldn't be in California, so I bet I'm dreaming. I had just enough doubt about it though, and didn't want to just open the car door. Plus even lucid accidents can hurt. So I tried to be subtle by just poking my finger through the roof of the car, and it went through as if it were made of jello. YES! My dad glanced over at me with a "wtf?!" look on his face. I said "No time to explain! I gotta take out my eyeball real quick." I took 3 fingers from my right hand, and curved them into a sort of scoop, then stuck them in the inner corner of my right eye. It felt loose and ready to easily scoop out. So I scooped it out, but it acted like it had some pressure built up behind it, like it's been meaning to come out for a while (which it HAS.. been attempting this task for a while). So when it came out, about a foot of optic nerve and optic muscles kinda hurled out with it, with my eyeball still attached. My dad and I both screamed "Ew GROSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!" and I got a flinch of panic. "What if I can't put my eyeball back in and can't wake myself up, and have to go through this whole dream with a gross dangling eyeball?" Because let's face it, it felt real, and I was no blind in that eye. So I oh so carefully shoved the whole mess back into my eyesocket, all the while telling myself "It'll be ok, it's going in fine, no problem." It went back in fine, and I blinked a couple times and could see again. My dad was looking at me peripherally with a mixed expression of disbelief and disgust. Then I just lost it. I bent forward and howled with laughter. I mean, it was a deep, jolly LOUD laugh at all the ridiculousness that just happened, and then I woke up.
    9. Basic I Task - DILD

      by , 08-05-2014 at 03:46 AM (Ophelia's Book O' Fun II)
      I started out nonlucid, and I don't remember what I was doing before all this started: I was walking down some sidewalk in some neighborhood on a really sunny day, when something breezed past me on a bicycle. I looked to my left, and saw him turn to look at me briefly and smile before continuing on. He had to be like 8 feet tall, and gorgeous. Oh hell yeah. I started after him, but lost him. He zipped around the corner. I didn't see this part, but he got off his bike and started walking down the street. Only now instead of 8 feet, he was over 50 feet tall. And resembled a cartoon Homer Simpson. His feet thudded as he walked down the block, parallel to the one I was walking down. He didn't seem to notice me, but he morphed into a couple different gigantic forms before settling on a 50 foot naked black woman, stomping around this one house. I was suddenly filled with this urge to fly up and smack her on her shiny brown butt cheeks lol. As I flew upward, I realized I was dreaming!

      I immediately landed and remembered the task about asking a DC to tell me a word in a foreign language. A young boy appeared, and I asked him to tell me a word in a foreign language. He said something garbled, and I asked him what it meant. He looked at me with a huge grin and, shaking his head, he replied, "I do not know!" I asked him for another one, same answer. So I flew off and found a young black girl sitting with her mom outside their house. Funny, it was night time now. I asked her for a foreign word and she said something that could only be described as tongue and throat clicks. I asked her what that meant and she said, "Go the way of Jesus."

      I thought of the eyeball task right after that, and thought about going into their house and finding a bathroom mirror for the task. But before I went in, I decided to recap the basic task so I'd remember it better when I woke up. It was a good plan and a bad plan. I took the time to recall it,
      but then woke up before going into the house. Oh well, next time

    10. Advanced Elevator Totm - DEILD

      by , 07-30-2014 at 03:31 AM (Ophelia's Book O' Fun II)
      This was fun. First I had a nonLD about finding some robin eggs. I brought them into the bedroom and showed them to Danny. He said he believed that they had been fertilized already. Sure enough, I looked at them and they had sticky stuff on the outside of the little pink shells. "EW!" I dropped one on the floor and it cracked slightly. I was so worried that I might have hurt a potential little baby bird inside so I picked it up. I was holding it in my right hand, when I suddenly seemed to be lying down. I "fell asleep" in the dream, holding the slimy little egg, then had a false awakening:

      I "woke up" or so I had thought, and was immediately aware that a slimy egg was in my hand. But I knew that finding the egg and dropping it had been a dream, because it was a house I didn't recognize, and now I was in my real room. How was I still holding this egg? LUCID!! Now it felt like a jello egg, and I let it kinda "sploop!" out of my hands, and I got out of the bed. I recalled the elevator totm because I've been talking about it for days. I've been thinking alot lately about the power of expectation, and have come to some conclusions about it, and how I've found a mechanism that helps it to work better. I'll have to post about that sometime. Anyway, I opened my bedroom door, and as I did, I told myself, "Now that I'm in that hotel, I just need to find the elevator that's just down this hallway." Sure enough, as soon as I opened the door, a hotel hallway stretched out before me. I walked down it a bit, thinking to myself, "The elevator is right about here." On my right was the door to a room, but to my left was an elevator! "I'm going to hit the down button." And as I approached the doors to the elevator, a simple up arrow and a down arrow button appeared. I hit the down arrow and the doors opened right away. It looked like a normal elevator: wood floor, carpeted walls and a metal bar that went 3 quarters around mid height. But when I looked at the back wall of the elevator, the left part looked like it opened up into another elevator. Kinda like twin elevators, with a partial partition. When I got the the partition, I realized immediately that it was in fact a mirror, because I saw my reflection. Only it wasn't me, it was my stepdad! Wearing that same dumb blue and green plaid shirt and khaki pants lol. I screamed at first because it startled me, and jumped back. The reflection imitated me at the same time. I laughed so hard at the ridiculousness of it, that I started float-flying in the elevator, occasionally projected forward a bit by my own laughter as if each laugh acted as propulsion. So weird haha. Then I woke up.

      Had another lucid after that where I pinched my own balls. I felt it as if I had pinched my inner thigh lol. So weird, again.
    11. Basic totm WILD

      by , 07-23-2014 at 05:55 PM (Ophelia's Book O' Fun II)
      Most of what happened here was discussed in irc last night, so weird.

      Anyway, I went to bed at 2am, and must have woken up around 5 because it was still dark. I was lying on my stomach, and felt the demon climb on my back. Been a while! Must have been that midnight ramen. I tried to move, but when I did, he'd growl (my fan, distorted) and my fingers would get all tingly where he was holding me down. I fell back into dreamless sleep, then woke up and it repeated. This time I thought about irc, and just rolled slowly off the edge of the bed and stood up. He was still in the bed, writhing and twisting up the covers. I just smiled and waved and said " bye bye now! " and he waved back lol.

      I remembered the naked task but none of the others. So I dropped my pj bottoms and pulled my shirt off fast and was naked. Felt good! So I darted out the room down the hall and into a strange looking livingroom. Oh yeah , my sight was a little weir until I got into the well lit livingroom. Suddenly Danny appeared, looking at me and my nakedness like a hungry wolf. I screamed and ran in a circle, and tried to catch me when the phone rang. He actually left and went to the kitchen to answer it lol. I tried SO hard to remember the other tasks, but nothing. I noticed a piano similar to mine in the room, and thought of my personal goal to play something. There was no sheet music so I just started playing this simple sonata I had memorized from when I was a kid. It started out great! The. It wasn't long before I started making mistakes, and I was having to concentrate really hard. Felt like when I try to play after too much wine haha.

      That's all I remember. I woke up and it was still dark. That is really early for me to WILD, and with very little sleep.

    12. Telekinesis & Rock Star ToTMs - DILD

      by , 05-13-2014 at 04:51 PM (Ophelia's Book O' Fun II)
      I woke up at 6am and couldn't get back to sleep until after 8am. I began to drift off to sleep and immediately started dreaming that I was standing in a room staring at a painting. I felt confused for a moment, then remembered I was just trying to get back to sleep. Yay dream! So I started walking and thought of the telekinesis task. I felt like my mouth and voice were paralyzed though. So much for the performance task. I tried to speak, and I could make noises but my mouth was locked shut. You know, like when you try to speak without opening your mouth? Really weird.

      It wasn't long before I realized that my vision was beginning to get all washed out. Not a very stable lucid at all. So I just stood there for a moment, then this is weird: I felt another set of eyes open, and everything was stable and I could speak. I didn't do anything to 'stabilize' the dream, it was more like I needed to wait out some kind of transition phase. This isn't the first time it has happened to me during a DILD, but it's the first time that I had the understanding that I just need to do nothing and wait it out.

      I'm skipping some stuff due to time, but there were a couple things with mirrors. Anyway I decided to lift a cell phone without touching it and I did it. First time for me. Then I started lifting people. One was my store manager and I lifted her, made her to horizontal, and spun her around and around and she was screaming the whole while haha.

      Then I thought to try the performance task. Singing wouldn't be an issue but where was I going to get a band and an audience? I went outside and saw an amphitheater with a band at the center! I ran up to them and asked if they wanted to perform some Heart. One guy said sure. I wondered if I could 'lift' people from the horizon with telekinesis. I focused on the horizon and lifted my hands, and a row of maybe 10 people appeared and I dropped them into the audience seats. I did that maybe 3 more times. I started singing a Heart song but forgot how it went, and suddenly the band and I were performing some Barbara Streisand.

      I'm running out if time gotta go to work. Ill post more later but I have to say that I got booed really bad for singing Streisand hahaha. I just laughed in the dream and decided to get really obnoxious and sang Magic from Xanadu. A fun dream for me.
    13. Limerick TOTM - DILD

      by , 05-10-2014 at 05:15 AM (Ophelia's Book O' Fun II)
      This lucid was a really nice break from a month long dry spell. What began as a 5 hour long WBTB, ended up becoming quite an escapade.

      I woke up at 3am and couldn't get back to sleep. Then I had to go to a 6am meeting at work. I went home and tried to go back to sleep before having to go BACK to work at 11am (my schedule sucks). I fell back to sleep probably about 8am. I started having a dream where I was in a house I didn't recognize, and some kid that wasn't my son was doing some homework on the dining room table. I suddenly became lucid because I remembered that I was just trying to get to sleep just moments before. This is a very common way that I DILD now. Anyway, I had been thinking of the performance and limerick tasks as I was trying to get to sleep, so I decided to bust out an aria from Mozart's Cosė fan tutte, "Č amore un ladroncello." It was the first one to pop into my head. I only sang the first 4 bars then quit, because I didn't think the one boy really qualified as a whole audience. Also, he was barely reacting to my presence. So I decided to move on to the Limerick task. I started hearing the Popeye the Sailor Man melody (which has a limerick rhyme scheme and meter to it) in my head like I planned irl, and one of the Popeye-like garbage can limericks started happening. I remember the first 2 lines and the 5th one form right away, then I struggled with getting 3 and 4 to rhyme as well as fit the rest. I don't remember the trial and error precisely, but I remember feeling a little frantic because I didn't want to run out of time. It all probably took a minute at the most, I'm guessing, but here is the result:

      There once was a man named Stan
      Who lived in a garbage can
      When he was in the mood
      To fry up some food
      He used the lid for a pan

      I woke up laughing at myself, and I can't recall for certain but I may have started laughing in the dream. What a goofy ass little poem. What followed was 3 more DILDs. They were very DEILD like in nature, because I would wake up and go back to sleep and start the dream in pretty much the same house, but it would take a few seconds for the awareness to kick in. So a DILD-chain? Weird. Seriously, leave it up to me to jumble everything up.

      No lucid sex for nearly 5 weeks woke up something extra animal in me it seems. I fell right back to sleep, and I appeared in a bedroom in what seemed to be the same house. Again, I was bumbling around for a few seconds before remembering that I was just waking up from a lucid dream not seconds before. All I wanted to do was find an attractive DC and celebrate my TOTM success. I discovered a lady who was fairly tall, thin and tan, standing in one corner of the room. Not ordinarily what I go for, but I guess I DO go for it since my subC is the one that came up with her! She had long brown hair and I think she was pretty, but I never really looked at her face for long. I gotta break that habit. I started for her, and she ran lol. I took off after her, and as I ran past a mirror, I saw that I was female. I hoped that wouldn't mess things up. I cornered her in the opposite side of the bedroom, and she seemed to go a bit docile.

      Spoiler for NSFW 1:

      I fell back to sleep and had a similar lucid onset. Ended up in some bedroom in that same house, or a house, and got lucid seconds after. This time there was a blonde chick with glasses not 2 feet away from me. Before I could even think, I grabbed her arm and threw her on the bed. I didn't want to wake up too soon like the last time, plus I wanted to do more than just wham bam thank you ma'am. So I was more gentle with pushing this one on the bed. I got on top of her and started French kissing her. It was actually pretty nice, though I had to keep my eyes open. Anytime I try to close my eyes when I kiss in lucids, I end up losing the dream. Plus I don't miss as much this way. She reciprocated the kisses nicely, but her front teeth were kinda big and kept clashing with mine a bit lol. Kinda awkward. In a bit of a blur, I removed just enough of our clothes to start having sex, but I got too excited and woke up again.

      I went into the 3rd and final lucid the same way. This time I appeared in a hallway of possibly the same house and became lucid when it dawned on me that I had just been chaining dreams. Now I wanted to really bump things up a notch. I decided that the next hot DC I found, I was going to try having sex up against the wall. I found a cute brunette guy in his 20s leaning against the wall, who acted clearly gay. I didn't waste a moment, but I was beginning to struggle with lucidity and removing my pants seemed to take forever.

      Spoiler for NSFW 2:

      And it was just 9 o'clock! All that jazz happened within an hour. I went back to sleep and slept dreamlessly for another hour and felt awesome.

    14. Advanced ii TOTM DILD

      by , 02-04-2014 at 09:55 PM (Ophelia's Book O' Fun II)
      I was non lucid, shopping around with my mom, and Brian from work. He sold 2 of his lamps that I wanted to a member on DV in the dream, on a side note. Anyway, in the car on the way back from the store, a dream sign that I can't freaking recall, was kinda tickling my mind. I remember looking out the car window thinking about it, wondering if I was lucid. The dream was so boring and uninteresting at this point, that first I convinced myself that it was real life. Then something snapped in my brain and I realized I WAS in fact dreaming. Wish I could remember what it was.

      Anyway, I asked mom to slow down the car. It took a while for her to stop, which annoyed me. I even closed my eyes for some reason. I felt the car stop, then I opened my eyes and we were parked in a garage of some house. I got out and went inside, and mom and Brian followed me. All 3 of us were in the livingroom, which only had a large mirror and curtains, and wasn't very well lit. Told you I wanted those lamps BRIAN. I was frantically trying to remember the basic tasks, but I couldn't. I asked mom and Brian, they shrugged. I even pondered for a moment if I would have luck getting on DV on my phone in a lucid lol. But no use, the only task I could remember was the one I didn't really want to do: take out my heart and give it to a DC. I stood in front of the mirror, and I was wearing a red, lowcut shirt. I just stuck my thumb and first 2 fingers into the flesh just above my heart, and pushed. I didn't actually break the skin, just my fingers were phasing through the layers of skin, fat, muscle and bone, just above my left boob. It didn't hurt and there was no blood (which is customary in these types of LDs for me). After a few inches, I felt a medium sized organ, which felt appropriately shaped like a human heart. It was warm, and gooey, and suspended in warm goo. I gently wrapped my thumb and fingers around it, and slowly pulled it out of my chest. There was a long slit in my chest left behind, but again, no blood. I went to hand it to my mom, but only Brian was still there. When I went to hand it to him, he didn't want to have anything to do with it lol. He actually looked panicked. I just said "Hey man, this is just for a task. Just hold it for a second and then give it back if you want." I thought I would just spend the rest of the lucid trying to put it back in my chest. So he held it for one second and gave it right back. I don't think he even looked at it. I looked back to the mirror, and pushed my heart back into the crevice that was left behind. And that was about it. I remember feeling accomplished after that,
      then I woke up maybe 2 seconds later.

      Later on I had a non lucid where I explained to my son what I had done. I went through the whole thing again, but with him instead of Brian. Even took my heart out again, to demonstrate. It didn't occur to me once that this might be a dream. It was a very well made retelling of the story haha.

    15. Basic TOTM - DILD

      by , 01-10-2014 at 11:54 PM (Ophelia's Book O' Fun II)
      Seems like I only LD when trying to do a TOTM these days. Come on Ophelia, a little more motivation here!

      Anyway, I had a TON of lengthy nonlucids last night/early morning. So many that I barely recalled my brief stint with the basic task of the month. I don't even recall how I got lucid, just a vague recollection of jumping high and being in an extremely odd building. I do remember being happy that I was lucid, and thought of the basic 1 task right away. I was alone in this huge building that was somewhat reminiscent of a super fancy embassy suites: lots of interesting hanging plants and water falls, and all the many levels of rooms in a circle, surrounding the structures. I thought that I might find a DC if I simply walked into one of the rooms, expecting someone. Sure enough, I could hear someone peeing in the bathroom. I walked in and peeked (I knew it was just a DC, so I didn't care that they saw me peeking while they peed). It was a black dude sitting on the toilet, peeing lol. I said "Hey what's your name?" He said "Pepsi." I asked him "What's your new year's resolution this year?" He said something garbled, and I swear it sounded like he said to drink more Coke haha. So I asked him again to repeat and it was still garbled. Which made me mad because I really wanted a clear answer. Stupid uncooperative DCs. Then suddenly, Parrish (from the seafood department at work), grabbed me by the shoulders and hustled me out of the bathroom, which led us outside somehow. He said "Pepsi just wants to drink more Coke." I said "Ok, well what's YOUR resolution then." He just got really sad looking and said, "To be more like you."


      It kinda made sense though because irl we've been talking about work stress, and the effects it's had on us. Work stressed him to the point of ulcers, he can only eat like 5 things I swear to god. And he's lost a TON of weight. Not the good kind of weight loss: he was really muscular before, and now he's super skin and bones, he just can't eat. Anyway, in the dream, I just began giving him therapy about how in life when thins don't go your way and you meet your goals and find out it's not what you really wanted, you gotta replace it with something else: other goals, or hobbies. This is just typical mid-life crisis type stuff.

      Anyway, pretty sure I lost lucidity after that. I remember Danny eating dead birds and eggs off the ground because the concrete was hot enough to cook them to medium-well. I told him he really DOES belong in the damn jungle.
