      Dream #8

      I'm walking through what is supposedly a school building (does not exist IRL) and get to an area of grass about 5 metres long and 10 metres wide. There is a road to the left and a road to the front. I walk up to a pedestrian crossing on the second road. There are more buildings on the other side. Someone is with me. A teacher is carrying an improbably tall (1m) stack of books. I split the stack between the three of us and we cross the road. There are no cars.

      Dream #9

      I was travelling somewhere, possibly a long distance over land, possibly in a bus. I arrive from the "south" with a large group of other people in an area with a few buildings. There is a central road running through it to the "north" to a shallow sea, with a lighthouse at the end. There is a bay to the east of the lighthouse. We are standing on this road, east of a statue in the middle of it. This might not be where we were originally going. Something strange has happened - all the people are gone, but everything else appears largely intact. Everyone universally decides that the world is ending and we need to survive.

      I pick out a group of people and start moving north, but everyone else follows us. I decide that we need to stay away from everyone else to survive, so we arrive at another statue, hide behind it to its northeast, then I send one of my group, a friend I know IRL, into the thick forest to the east. By this time the group following us is quite large, and nobody notices him leaving. I was planning to join him there immediately but decide I'll go there later.

      We continue moving down the road, looting supplies, then go along the edge of the bay. The bay is almost a full circle, and is only connected to the sea by a narrow channel near the lighthouse. There are very few buildings here. This is in an unfamiliar country, possibly Greece. We are mostly looting small electronics, and don't seem to care about food or other survival supplies even though we expect to stay here for a long time. At the end of the bay, someone finds a wallet with a 2 euro receipt and a local SIM card in it, and I tell him to check if there is mobile coverage. I tell him that he can use the backup phone in my backpack for this, but only if he can't find another one to use.

      The perspective abruptly switches to third-person, following a ghost. The ghost is indoors, at a swimming pool, haunting someone she had known before she died.

      Perspective switches back to first person. I am standing southwest of the lighthouse, looking southwest. A car arrives from the south onto the beach and I explain the situation. Then I look east. Somehow, possibly as a result of the ghost's appearance, a voice tells everyone in the area that they will be returned from it, with whatever loot they are carrying at the moment. The voice represents whoever is responsible for the whole incident. I am disappointed by the fact that this is ending. I wake up.

    2. Competition | Night 10 | "so meta~" - BloodSand

      by , 08-14-2016 at 09:31 PM

      Dream 6

      I'm in a long building or on a long island, possibly both. I'm looking at a wall map of it. Someone is invading the island. I briefly go lucid, observe the dream, then it ends. (10.5 points)

      Dream 7

      I'm in a classroom talking about dreams, and recall two past dreams, the first of which is Dream 6. I talk about how, in dreams, I often see combinations of IRL people who could never possibly meet. Ironically, later two people who could never meet appear in the room and I don't notice.

      Later, in the same room, a teacher is talking about two dreams (one of them is about Harry Potter) and I comment on how similar they are to the ones I had been describing, then realize they aren't actually that similar and try to make a connection. The teacher is a character from Life is Strange.

      Somehow I end up in Spain - I don't know for sure where I was originally in the dream, but after I walk out of the classroom I'm near the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. It is falling down sideways. I start moving north into France. I arrive on a narrow road with a deep pit/cliff/fall to the left and a rock wall with tunnels in it to the right. It is a hotel. I crawl into one of the tunnels and talk to a woman about booking a room. Then I emerge from the tunnels on the other side, in a Half-Life-like military compound. There is a large yard, mostly filled with shipping containers, with a large building behind it. I am in the yard talking to a soldier. (1 point)

      TOTAL POINTS: 11.5

    3. Competition | Nights 3, 4, 5 and 6 | The dreams just get weirder

      by , 08-04-2016 at 09:52 PM

      Night 3, Dream 3

      It's late at night, around 23:15 - I can see this on a wall clock. With some other people, I walk into a warehouse, where we're going to build or do something. The warehouse closes at midnight and I'm worried we don't have enough time. The warehouse is accessed from behind, then down an open passage between crates or walls and past a guard.

      Night 3, Dream 4

      I'm walking through an underground facility like Half-Life's, and throwing objects around with the Gravity Gun.

      Night 5, Dream 5

      I'm at an airport check-in desk in Greece with other people when I realize that two of three bags are missing. I walk out of the building to look for them, panic and wake up.

      Night 6

      [forgot all dreams]

      TOTAL: 1.5 POINTS (3 fragments)

      Dream 2

      I'm in a hotel room with a huge bag of cash, over 100 000 [currency unit here], possibly stolen.

    5. Competition | Night 1 | In which I realize I should DJ 7 minutes after waking up, not 7 hours

      by , 07-30-2016 at 03:02 PM
      Title. I had about four fragments, but by the time I got around to writing up I had just one dream left.

      (meme stolen from the meme thread)

      Dream 1 | Detention

      I'm sitting at a table facing "north" (all compass directions are made up when writing the DJ entry). The table is long and rectangular. It appears full. I am sitting at the end of the table on one of its long sides. The table extends a long way east, and a DC is sitting next to me at the west end (age unclear, looks Asian, female, black hair, does not exist IRL). It is quiet. There are more tables to the north. This appears to be at school and everyone has paper in front of them, working on something. I am definitely working on something, possibly with her. My pencil sharpener opens over the desk, spilling sharpenings everywhere. Eventually a teacher (exists IRL) arrives from the east and puts us both in detention. (He would never do this IRL.) I try to explain that it wasn't her fault, and she says something to me, but the teacher doesn't respond. Strangely, I don't have any objection to being put in detention.

      Shortly afterwards, I end up going east to a hill where there might be a small house or wagon. The dream fades and eventually it ends and I either go back into deep sleep or wake up.

      DILD (10 points):

      In my room, alarm sounds and a DC walks in and says something, I realize that I only see this person IRL on Saturdays but it is actually Friday, so it must be a dream, but as I realize this I wake up.

    7. Competition day 7: I DID IT

      by , 01-17-2016 at 10:23 AM

      Non-lucid dream fragment 0.5 points:

      Driving down a street near home with family, talking about how we bought the car

      DILD (10 points):

      Walking through some long building, walk into a room with a big double bed and DCs, scenery changes to my parent's bedroom and DCs disappear, I notice I'm dreaming, RC (1 point, probably by nose-pinch and trying to remember what I'd been doing) because I can't believe I did it after a bad week with little recall.

      I try to compose myself and go through the list of things I was going to do for the competition. The dream is not especially stable at first. I jump/glide/leap from the front of the bed to the side and back for some reason, as there is some suitcase preventing me from walking this route (This jump would have been impossible and painful IRL, so Change Gravity - 5 points), then remember what I was going to do and pull out my phone from somewhere vaguely near my pocket (Basic Summoning - 5 points, First three-step task - 5 points) I think I was wearing my pyjamas which don't have pockets and in any case I don't carry my phone on me at home, so the phone shouldn't have been there. Dream stability peaks around this moment.

      As per the plan I'd made earlier for chaining tasks, I try to use the phone to summon a DC. The dream begins to fade. I press something on the screen, which is nearly black (Use an Electronic Device - 5 points), and turn around clockwise, but think halfway through the turn that it didn't work and only see a white wall closer than usual when the turn completes. I turn about 45 more degrees in the same direction, see that the door is ajar but the hinge is on the other side from real life. The dream starts fading and I say "normalize" or something, but by then my vision is completely black. Gravity switches from "down" to "behind" and I wake up IRL with my eyes shut, lying on my back. I try to WBTB (2 points), look at my watch, realize it's only 06:30 AM, eventually go to sleep.

      Non-Lucid Dream (1 point)

      Approaching, on foot through water, an island created by a nuclear explosion, only accessible at low tide in the morning. Some tall, male DC and my brother is with me. We find a torn bag of rubbish, then approach the island. I start worrying about radiation. Eventually we start returning the way we came and debate on what to do with the bag - leave it there or dispose of it safely?

      2 fragments of one dream (1 point)

      This was a very long dream but I only remember fragments. Standing on a cliff on one side of a frozen river, looking out over some large tall structure in the river. Some villain DC is with me.

      Later near that building, on the ice.

      Fragment (0.5 points)

      Looking at some book or film about 2018. In my mind it is still 2015. It is snowing. The world's climate seems to have collapsed. I ask how this is possible but a DC reminds me of the 'China floods' a few years ago in this timeline, and that I'm not old enough to remember.

      EDIT: One more fragment (0.5 points): Chatting on DreamViews IRC!

      Day 2

      WBTB attempt (2 points)

      Two fragments of the same dream (1 point):

      - A few metres away from my front door, also at night

      Day 3

      WBTB attempt (2 points)

      Non-lucid dream fragment (0.5 points):
      - In an icy/snowy mountainous landscape, with a group of people, walking through it. One of the group falls into a pit, about 10 metres deep, and is abandoned.

      Woke up, went back to sleep

      Full non-lucid dream (1 point):
      - First-person perspective from the guy who fell down the pit. There is ice everywhere and a thick metal double door to the "west" in a circular tunnel. It is open. I walk through, turn around, and press a button on the "north" side of the corridor to close the door. There are two more of these doors. Then I'm in a dark tunnel network. I start moving down some tunnel "south", and suddenly become aware that something, a vampire probably, is pursuing me. I start running south and wake up.
