      I decided to go ahead and put my first lucid dream into my dream journal. I also added the dreams that led up to this lucid. These dreams happened over 3 days when I was 7 years old.

      In the first dream I had, I was standing out on my school's playground. The sky started to turn red. Everyone stopped what they were doing and looked up at the sky. I remember there being a large cloud over us, and I think it was skull shaped. There was a sense dread and impending doom. Everyone was looking up at the sky horrified. (They looked kind of funny staring at the sky with their jaws dropped actually. ) I went back inside the school and I walked up to the library on the 3rd floor. There was another kid there staring out the window with a book. I asked, "Why is the sky red?" He responded dramatically, "The world coming to an end!"

      I woke up shortly after that. I thought this dream was kind of weird and creepy, but I didn't pay much attention to it until the next day.

      In the second dream, it was a continuation from the last dream, but it took place on the day after the sky turned red. The sky was still red this day with the large cloud in the sky. I started my dream in front of my school. I didn't see anyone around the school or on the playground, so I went inside thinking that I was late. I entered a hallway, but it was dark, empty, and a mess inside. There was still no one in sight, no noise, and no sign of life. Desks and chairs were knocked over in the hallway, there was rubble on the floor, the wall was half destroyed, and the floor was cracked. At this point I was really starting to feal fear because I felt like the last guy in the world, I was scared of whatever destroyed everything, and I remembered the kid from the last dream saying that the world was coming to an end. Despite my fear, I continued down the hallway to find my classroom.

      My dream ended and I woke up right before I would have entered my classroom. This dream felt more realistic than the last one and it was scarier for me. I even watched the sky half of the day wondering if it would turn red.

      The third and final dream continued right about where the last one left off. It started with me sitting in the dark room at my desk. There was still no living thing in sight. I again started to wonder where everyone was for a few seconds. As I was thinking about this, the lights flashed on and all my classmates and my teacher seemed to flash into view with the light. They just walked around the room and worked on a project as if they had been there the whole time. I got up from my desk and asked my teacher, "Where did everyone go?" Everyone just turned and glared at me with angry expressions on there face. As they focused on me, their eyes started to glow red. In my mind all I could think was they wanted to chase me and kill me. And of course, they started to chase me out the door.

      I ran back out into the hallway and then out to the playground. As I ran up the hill on the playground, I stared up at the sky and noticed it was still red and had the large cloud. I remembered this from the past 2 dreams and said to myself, "Wait! I'm dreaming!" I stopped at the top of the hill and turned to face the mob. I wanted to wake myself up before the mob could get to the top of the hill. Without giving it much thought, I started screaming, "Wake up! Wake up! Wake up!" As I said this, pictured my real body hidden behind the red sky until I could feel it. I then tried to kick my legs and lift my arms. This required a lot of effort though. As I tried to lift my arms and legs, it felt like someone was pulling them back down. When the mob was about half way up the hill, the dream faded away.

      My eyes opened and I was punching and kicking the air with ease. I was sweating and my heart was racing, but I knew I was now sitting safely in bed. I soon got really excited after that because I never had a dream where I knew I was dreaming before. As I started to get more dreams like this, I called them "super dreams" because it felt like a different side of me took over and played as a super hero. They were mostly triggered by nightmares, and this new part of me was like a self defense mechanism against nightmares. It wasn't until I was 13 that I learned there was a name for these dreams and they didn't have to be related to nightmares.

      My Thoughts on these Dreams

      Aside from the apocalypse aspect of it, that was awesome! A couple "super dreams" later, and I learned that I didn't have to run from nightmares. I could fight them! Always felt awesome. This is one of my favorite dream chains even though it was a continuous nightmare.

      I think the reason why whenever I try to wake myself up and something pulls me down is because of sleep paralysis. Sleep paralysis isn't my best friend when trying to get away from a mob.

    2. Fragment (April 29, 2011)

      I don't really have much to say on the dream/dreams of the night. I remember waking up in the middle of the night, but I barely had any memory of my dream at that point. I didn't write anything in my journal at that point because I was so tired and I had so little information. I had another dream between that moment and the time my alarm went off. My recall of this one was also horrible, so I'm not even sure what fragment belongs to which dream.

      One fragment I can remember is standing in line to an amusement park. I was with my grandpa and I pointed to a wooden roller coaster that was built around a small mountain. I yelled, "OMG!!! That's my favorite ride!" Although I don't remember anything after that, the roller coaster probably woke me up.

      This fragment was even worse. All I remember is being in some place that was a cross between a jungle and a swamp. I remember being in a Jeep with some other guy who had a funny mustache. I also keep getting a vision of a giant steel robot in the jungle.

      I guess I need to work on dream recall a little more.

    3. Meeting My Team (April 28, 2011, Dream 2)

      This was the second dream/dream set that I could recall from last night. It started sometime after 6:20am and ended at 8:00am. I think a lot more happened in this dream than the last one. That or I just remember this one better because it was the last dream of the night. I had instantly changing scenes in this dream as well, so I'm not sure if it was just 1 dream or if it was a linked set of dreams.

      The dream started with me standing on a balcony. The balcony was about 3 stories high and overlooked a back yard and forest. In my dream I was a ninja on a patrol mission to guard some rich guy's mansion. It was boring for the first minute, but then I got a haircut...

      I was just looking down below the balcony and then I looked up. There was a rather large and very sharp looking shuriken flying towards my face as I looked up. I used my time control ability to slow down time just enough for me to dodge the shuriken. Not a complete dodge though. It shaved off half the hair on the right side of my head. The shuriken had a blue flame color patern on it, but I'm not sure why I can remember that so well.

      I looked back to find the source of the shuriken, and the only person in sight is a girl with another shuriken in her hand. I'm usually not good at remembering what DCs look like, but I remember her details more than I do other DCs. She wore something similar to a black bulletproof vest, black pants, and had orangish-brownish hair. In general, she looked like a ninja/assassin.

      I screamed, "Kakashi! (Naruto character) I need help!" The dream scene then changed to Kakashi standing on a mountain. All he did was stare with wide eyes in fear until the dream scene changed back to the mansion. Seeing as Kakashi was going to be of no help, I reached into my backpack and grabbed my own shuriken.

      As we threw shuriken at each other, she made her way over to the mansion and climbed up to the balcony. We had some close combat fighting, but she somehow pinned me to the ground. I managed to kick her off me though, and I ran through the door into the mansion behind me. I locked the door and layed against it to make sure she couldn't get in. "Why did you attack me?!" I yelled. I don't remember getting a response, so I just walked away from the door. I was going to go explore the mansion. After a few steps into the mansion though, she started to cry and yelled, "I just wanted to join your team!"

      I suddenly became lucid at this moment. I thought to myself, "Oh... So that's why she was trying to kill me!" (lol dream logic) I then tried to reverse time to invite her to join my team and get rid of the sad moment. I was back on the balcony and asked her to join my team. She responded with, "Ha! I knew you would fall for that trick!" (Time control didn't have an affect on her I guess and the crying was fake.) She then hugged me in acceptance to my invitation. I was annoyed though because she tried to kill me and then she tricked me. We started to walk into the mansion and I asked, "Wait. What is this team you keep talking about?" She just smiled and said, "I'll show you." Everything went black for a moment...

      The next thing I remember was standing in some tunnel complex with her and a few other people. By this point I had lost lucidity, but it seemed to be a continuation from the last dream. One of these new DCs was a man in heavy metal armor with a large 2 handed sword. Another one was woman wearing weird robes and holding a wand in her hand. The other new DC was a woman wearing leather armor and a holding bow. These new DCs were refered to as Warrior, Wizard, and Archer. The only different thing I noticed about the assasin was she now had a katana strapped to her back. My backpack was also missing.

      We all walked to the end of the tunnel and entered a large storage room. It was well lit with no source of light, full of stacked crates, and two other tunnels. I started to explore the storage room and I walked around a wall of crates. As I turned the corner I saw a large beastly dog sleeping in the middle of the room. It must have been a guard dog and it snarled at me. I looked back to see if the rest of my team was ready to fight the beast, but the only one still with me was the assassin. The warrior, wizard and archer had run off to search another room. The girl drew her sword and the beast pushed me out of the way. She slashed the dog with her katana and made a wound; it didn't seem to have much of an effect on the beast however. The beast was about to lunge at her, but I got up and pushed the dog away. I was able to distract it long enough for my friend to hit the beast with the killing blow.

      When we finally caught up to the rest of our team, we found them surrounded by an army of evil red-eyed koalas. There were fireballs and arrows flying, and the warrior was in the middle of it all, slaying demonic koalas with his sword. We fought with some of the koalas and then ran off to an exit tunnel. At this point I blacked out a little again.

      I was soon in a new dreamscape on a large ship. It looked like there was a party taking place. We were being celebrated for something we did, but I'm not quite sure what. It was kind of fuzzy in this dreamscape. The last thing I could remember was Mickey Mouse being strangled by Mini Mouse on the ship.

      After that, my alarm woke me up at 8:00am. After thinking about my dreams, I started to laugh at Kakashi and Mickey Mouse. Later that morning I also asked my sister if my hair had grown back yet. Forgot that was only a dream.

      My Thoughts on this Dream

      I just realized that this dream set was actually linked to a previous dream that night. When I met the warrior, the archer, and the wizard, it might have been based on the story I wrote in my last dream. The ship I was on at the end also looked just like the flying one. Looking at this now, I realize my dream control still protects me even when I'm not lucid. Time control saves the dream once again!

      I will probably laugh now whenever I see Kakashi on TV or koalas. I don't like the idea of hurting animals, but personally, I think this was necessary. That dog nearly killed us and those koalas were like little furry demons! <-- = koala!

      I'm also wondering if the girl I met could have been my dream guide. She may have tried to kill me, but she seems more intelligent than other DCs, she led me to the tunnels and the ship, and she was the only one who didn't abandon me in the tunnels. Dream guide possiblity number 1: The sea turtle with mind altering abilities. Dream guide possibility number 2: The assassin girl who stood by my side in battle.

    4. I'm a Famous Writer! (April 28, 2011, Dream 1)

      This was the first dream of the night that I could remember. This all happened in one dream I'm sure, but the instantly changing scenes and different scenarios made it feel a little unorganized.

      I have no idea where I was. I know I was in a city and it felt like it was from either the medieval or renaissance eras. The dream started with me standing on the roof of a three story stone building with stairs that circled the building. There were two girls in bikinis on the roof with me and there were a few other DCs around, but I didn't pay enough attention to them. I was in the middle of teaching the two girls how to headbutt as if it was an advanced martial arts technique. I must have succeeded because one girl ran down the stairs and headbutted some guy off the building. I walked away from the building and started to write some stuff about a wizard, a archer, and a warrior in a notebook. I can't remember what exactly I wrote though.

      Supposedly in the first half of my dream, I had written some story about the adventures of wizard, an archer, and a warrior. A man then walked up to me and handed me a letter. It stated that my story is now famous in the city and that I would recieve 50,000 gold pieces. I then started to think of all the things I could do with 50,000 gold pieces.

      5 seconds later I was on some flying ship. I guess I decided to spend the money on a air ship cruise vacation. I don't remember any other people being on the ship, so I thought that was kind of strange. I walked out to the deck to look for people, but a hunter and a boomer (Left 4 Dead zombies) came out from below deck. I kicked the boomer away and started to fight with the hunter. I saw a door that led to some storage closet and ran to hide in there. Then I heard the boomer explode as the door blasted open.

      I woke up at about 6:00am during a thunderstorm right as this happened. I either woke up because of the thunder (which would also explain the boomer explosion) or because of my internal clock. I got up, used the bathroom, and went back to sleep about 20 minutes later.

      My Thoughts on this Dream

      Wtf zombies again??? Leave it to them to kill a relaxing dream flight. I also wish I had more details about the story I wrote in the dream.
