    Dream Logs DWN-12


    This is where I, RelicWraith, will report my dreams for others' (dis)pleasure. As this is only a supplementary journal for me, there may be some apparently misplaced and missing log entries. Similarly, I won't bore anyone with certain sets of meta-data (ie induction techniques used, dream signs, etc.), though I'll gladly reveal as much if asked. Furthermore, any name of personally known real life figures will be replaced with ever-changing aliases.


    1. Log 3176 - DV Lucid Dream Winter Competition 2024 - Night 6

      Got one LD today. Seems my schedule's been made a bit tighter than I anticipated. I'll keep making an effort whenever possible.

      Dream 1 - DV Lucid Dream Winder Competition 2024 - Night 6

      Many forgotten scenes before this one. The visuals were mostly clear. I was floating in space. To my right was a blue Earth-like planet, white clouds swirling over its sole continent.

      By this point, I'd gained awareness. I rocket to the nearby world. Piercing the stratosphere, I see below a vast badlands of smooth beige metamorphic stone. Oddly, the blue sky looked sparsely cloudy from then on.

      Anyway, after many quick miles of travel, I arrive at the foot of a truly vast castle atop a mountain range, its construction slate grey. I went over the outer walls, and levitated into a great keep that occupied most of the site. The interior was dimly lit, and furnished/constructed mostly of glossy wood.

      At a building-sized table a distance away, a huge figure awaited: a gigantic woman, easily 100ft tall, skin light, long dark hair frayed. She was dressed in a violet robe. Her face beamed into a welcoming grin, belied only by a glint of madness in her saucer-shaped eyes. It was no surprise when she made a fierce swipe at me. I weaved around her hand and wrist, and swooped around her head. Then, I flung myself like a dart at her nape. My knee struck true. In that instant, the giant witch crumples over on the table, unconscious. Mission accomplished, I thought.

      I fly out of the castle and hurtle back into space. I realize then that maybe I didn't accomplish a competition goal, as my opponent wasn't explicitly a titan. Sighing in dismay, I find it was too late to do much else, for the dream begins to fade. I go unconscious.

    2. Log 3174 - Bathroom Shrink and Unhappy Naughty

      Created Wednesday 10 January 2024

      Got a brief LD and fragments today. Can't say I'm too happy with these results, let alone comfortable to share some things below. But, the show must go on. I'm gonna have to rest up again before I use more thorough sleep interruptions...

      Scrap Group 1
      KOF game.

      Talking about a Sonic game?

      Dream 1 - Bathroom Shrink and Unhappy Naughty

      The visuals were slightly blurred. I was in a bathroom similar to one at home, daylight glaring through the window. It was a bit wider, and the countertop was made of glossy wood instead of laminate.

      Then, an unknown person barges in, a woman of average build, skin light colored, her face covered by a heap of messy dark colored hair. Her shirt also light colored, and she'd red plaid pajama pants. She seats herself on the counter, and seems to stare blankly towards the shower.

      My immediate thought was "who the hell is this?" Self reflection soon prompted awareness. I try to get a closer look at the woman's face. No way to do it just by sight. I was about to part her hair, but hesitated; I'd worried I'd get jump-scared by some dream demon, and was in no mood to deal with such. So instead, I shrunk myself down to a few inches for the fun of it. From the floor, I leaped atop the counter alongside the now giant woman. I slap her leg to provoke her, but she remained unresponsive. I jumped back down. It's then the woman reanimates, and sets herself down. Only narrowly did I avoid getting stepped on. She then walks out of the bathroom.

      Shortly after, the giant lady returns. Only now, she's a blonde, eyes wide-set, nose pointed and a bit long, hair naturally straight though still unkempt. I'm asked a mundane question. Something about if I've seen some object or another? Anyway, I give a casual negative response.

      Spoiler for WARNING: Brain-bleach level of naughtiness. Reader beware:

      In a big, dark colored living room. On retrospect, the layout had strong similarities to my work site. Anyway, my brothers were around. I felt unclean. I look for the bathroom at a doorway to the far left. This happened to be a bedroom. The person there shut the door and locked it. I then looked to a door in the far right.

      Something about a Pokemon game on an old CRT screen computer.

      In an alleyway in a developing Indian town during daytime. Some kind of emergency was occurring. A younger guy from the region, someone whom I was supposedly acquainted, has me follow him to safety. Just then, he's accosted by a bearded man in a turban. The two bicker for a bit. The younger man tells me there's a language barrier between the two. I was told the older man spoke "Tangrit". I pull out a laptop, and try translating via Google some basic sentences like "who are you" and "what is the problem". But, I kept badly mistyping any statements, and took longer still to correcting these. Both men got very impatient.

    3. Log 3173 - Boiler Room Garbage, Highway Ride, Work, Rocko Apocalypse, and Other Fragments

      by , 01-09-2024 at 08:18 PM (Dream Logs DWN-12)
      Got a bunch of fragments today. Some amusing stuff, but not anything I can use for the competition (womp-womp!). I feel much better rested. Think I'll make intentional sleep interruptions in the next few days.

      Scrap Group 1
      In a series of industrial boiler and pipework facilities. There were a bunch of filled garbage bags strewn around. I was frustrated at the sight of them.

      Highway ride during dusk.

      Work stuff.

      Rocko's Modern Life dream. O-Town had been razed to the ground from an apocalyptic event. Survivors were fighting over supplies. They were particularly frantic over desk ornaments and other useless luxuries, which caused a major rumble. Flashback to what started this. In a series of factories, robot arms were going haywire. They expanded out for miles out of the facilities to capture people, smashing through buildings as they did. In short time, O-Town was in a panic. Almost all of the destruction wasn't caused by the robots themselves, but instead the frenzied residents.

      I'm a clerk in some lower state office. A board meeting was taking place. As the chair was making statements, some obnoxious fat guy seated across from me started throwing pencils at me for some reason. He demanded I return them, but I refused; if he didn't want me to have them, he wouldn't have thrown them in the first place. He fumed loudly enough to interrupt the meeting. Some other fat dude made some joke about the other guy's appearance, prompting a burst of laughter. The embarrassed obnoxious guy glared at me for the rest of the event. Later, a bunch of kids started running around the place, causing a commotion. For some reason, I felt they were somehow related to the obnoxious clerk.

      In a college classroom, a small windowless space. A grey haired woman in black was the professor. After class, I rushed off, only to "remember" I'd left behind a small grey bag. I hurried back to rummage among a bunch of other belongings others had forgotten. There were a few items fitting the descritpion, but they lacked the items I was sure was inside (whatever that may have been). There were also two pink fanny packs around, and a green bag I think. The professor at this point stopped me from perusing further.

      Simpsons episode. There was a big clipshow of all of Homer's D'ohs throughout the years. This gag lasted far beyond the point where it remained humorous. The major plot involved yet another of Bart's pranks going way out of hand.

      In the parking lot of a flat, wide building during a clear late afternoon. I was in the passenger seat in an unknown black stout SUV. My brother was around. Soon, I noticed a bunch of ants crawling nearby. Some were small black ants. Others were carpenter ants. They soon began biting my hand. I instinctively brush off and smash any that are in the way with my hands. My brother observes I should've used a magazine paper nearby instead to do the deed. I get out and hurry to the building. There were tons of peanuts strewn about. For some reason, I felt I'd responsibility to pick these up and place them in barrels. Figured this was why there were so many ants in the vehicle. Anyway, as I shoved the peanuts with my hands, I notice I was putting them in garbage bins, not barrels. Whoops.

      In a park during night time. The wide pathway winding before me was paved with light colored bricks. Around me were deciduous trees, maples and oaks from what I could tell. I soon heard the cries of seagulls, and saw such birds fluttering around under antique cast-iron street lamps. Quite peculiar for such creatures to be in a place like this, and at this time of night. I looked around to see if there were owls stalking around as well. I was at the point of making a reality test, but woke up within seconds of thinking that.

    4. Log 3171 - WILD Wind and Dark Desert Camel Ride LDs

      by , 01-07-2024 at 08:15 PM (Dream Logs DWN-12)
      Created Sunday 07 January 2024

      Got two short LDs today. Kinda flat considering all the insomnia I'd afflicted on myself, but it's something.

      Dream 1 - WILD Wind

      No visuals initially, though I gain some sight over time. WILD transition in bed, noted by the deafening sound of storm winds (actually just the ceiling fan). I perform a breathing reality test. It was inconclusive, but I knew better. Anyway, I try rolling off the bed, but found I couldn't move. So, I imagined that I was actually being struck by gusts, and soon feel such happening. I was turned over towards the wall. My expectation was to just phase through. But, I was simply pressed there. Not very comfortable at all. Gaining mobility, I roll against the wind. It was quite the struggle before I could finally fall off the mattress.

      I drop to the floor, which happened to be made of wood instead of tiles. Anyway, I phase face first through it and into the void. As I descended, I try conjuring a construct to assist me. A voice responded, but nothing else came about. Soon, I fell on my bed, and woke up. Re-entry two minutes later.

      Dream 2 - Dark Desert Camel Ride

      No visuals initially, which again arrived progressively. Re-entry in bed. Instead of rolling, I just walked out of bed towards the closet. The room extended far beyond visible range into a black plane. Along the way, I notice a ~24" screen CRT TV on a wooden stand. On screen was some Youtube video with some (in)famous content creators. Pretty sure it was Joe Rogan and Ben Shapiro. I ignored it, and kept moving.

      I noticed the noise of the ceiling fan. To justify this, I imagined I was actually in a windy desert. I had the dream sound the Desert of Death theme from Breath of Fire 3 to set the mood. Despite expectation, I was still surprised to find the hard ground before me becoming rough-grained sand. I was indeed warped to a desert under a starless night. Light shimmered off of an oasis pond half a mile away. The breeze was biting cold.

      I make my way to the oasis. My ambling wavered, and I tripped over myself from exhaustion. I needed some help. I imagined holding the reigns of a camel. With a tug, I turned back, and see such a beast kneeling before me. I climb on the camel's back, and am quite startled when it rises and paces forward. This was a very,very bumpy ride. I had to hold tightly on its neck to keep still. Its light hair was very shaggy and comfortably warm. I enjoyed this now aimless jaunt for a minute. By that point, I lost my hold to the animal, and fell. Upon hitting the ground, I'd returned to bed.
