    Things to Run Away From Really Fast

    I'm running through a room with a sword, slashing at zombies. I feel like Zorro, only with more stabbing.

    An allied DC gets grabbed. I slice apart the zombie holding him, but I scratch him with my blade. We hope for the best.

    He thinks something might happen to me. I make an offhand comment, "I don't die." I'm not worried about myself.

    I step into the next room. The door slams shut behind us.

    I don't have my sword. A voice informs me that I'll have to meet its challenge, or the zombies on the other side of the room will be set free. A handful of neon orange-pink guitar picks appear in my hands. I have to throw them into a 3-inch gap on the other side of the room, in front of the zombies.

    I throw two, but they go wild. The creepy childlike voice informs me that if I miss again, we're all going to die.

    I hold one pick in the palm of my hand. I will it to float, and slowly send it toward the bucket. It lands perfectly.

    I grin at the creepy ghostlike girl that appears out of the wall. She gestures sullenly toward another door and it opens with a creak.

    "At least this isn't a dream," I say to my partner, "If it was, I'd have to wake myself up. I have a doctor's appointment in the morning."

    I stop and feel for dreaminess. "And now I'm lucid," I say. "I really ought to wake up, though."

    I focus on dismantling the dream, aiming for a new location. We'll see if this works...

    False awakening. I beg a friend for a ride to work. Apparently, I work at a pizza place part-time. News to me.

    One of the managers says that the new guy seems depressed and it's all my fault. I sigh, and go over to talk to the guy, who's standing in the kitchen.

    "Look, it's not that I don't like you." I lie, "I just move around so much, I don't like getting close to people." I kindly leave out the fact that I'm friends with the DC managers, owner, and various and sundry employees.

    The creepy fucker smiles at me. I really want to punch him in the face.

    Zombies. Scare Factor: 4.

      How did you dismantle the dream? Make objects disappear one by one until nothing was left? What was the location? Similar to the one the FA took place in? Why do you think the FA happened like that?

      As opposed to fancy air-swipes, I suppose?

      And bleagh, zombies

      I think I shifted my focus to another place (I don't really remember where; I think it was a bird's eye view of my city), and just waited to wake up in bed. My recall wasn't great for that particular part.

      Also, I "woke up" in my bedroom. With, of course, slight alterations that I didn't notice until I actually woke up.

      No flynning for me! I could have done with a different sword, though; foils aren't very good for decapitation.

      Zombie dreams don't bother me much. Then again, I've never been worried about being bitten, since invulnerability seems to carry over from my lucids.
