    1. Crystalline College

      by , 08-12-2019 at 01:34 PM (the Dream Almanac)
      I'm with my (dream)friend, a girl, kind of sporty wearing a flannel, at UMF but its not UMF. We're here for tryouts for this... game/thing/college/class.
      Its being held down in the Roberts parkinglot, which is busier, with a building in the center. I pass Michelle Darling, hello.
      There's a group of ppl who made it and those trickling out who didn't. The test is like, throwing these darts or catching them or something sporty.
      She fails. But on her way out she catches one, but it doesn't count. I don't know if it counts or not.
      I don't know how I pass, but I do. Eventually all the winners are left and are being guided away toward wherever we're going.
      I look for her frantically, I don't want to be alone, but I know she's out.
      In the crowd of people I see Rebecca! I have a dream memory of knowing she wanted to go back to school. I get in with her group and say hey.
      We're stragglers. There's this big fat happy boy. I say something about my friend (another person, a winner) wants to go to this college thing to dismantle religion.
      Everyone laughs.
      Eventually we go to where we're going to be for the next like, 6 months.
      Its a crystal cavern-turned-school. The cavern is the school. The crystals are super powerful. (This is some Hollow Knight bullshit).
      The cavern is kind of 2D and there's a 'flat' back to it, even though it LOOKS like it goes deep. I wonder if we'll unlock it.
      We go "right" into a huge chamber and are told some stuff, don't know. Its an important room.
      We're herded into a crystal-cavern cafeteria-esque small room to the "left" of the flat center room and sit at tables. Its like everyone had been here before but I'm one of the new kids, even though we're all new: I'm like an hour late to the game or something. I ask the fat boy if I can sit next to him.
      "OOO, your body!" referring to all my current bruises and scars. "Yeah I got too drunk camping." "This is my first time being drunk!"
      I realize this is why they brought us here: a woman hands out a menu with only drinks. Mostly wine. He orders more wine. Chelsea is behind me and orders Coffee Brandy, but she calls it WBTB (lol). I have that flash-urge of "fuck sobriety" but I consider getting a coffee. Its like 2.98, the cheapest coffee and cream option. Tons of crazy chai coffee stuff, but all very expensive.
      My vision flashes outside of myself and I see this crazy cackling headmistress kind of deal, and like a cinema/movie, I know she's got secret/subversive plans based on the "shot" of the scene. She's behind the flat part of the center room and zoom-slips through the crystalline hole. She lands on the outside of the cavern to the "right" -- we didn't know there was a behind. She punches the crystal and it super-charges something. This is "bad" ... she's not telling anyone she's doing this, she has some evil plan here.
      My vision flashes again to a group of girls being shown the cavern for the first time. You can see the flash on the edges/seams of the room.
      "WOAH," they say. Their faces are like half-drawn anime, I can see those vertical+horizontal face lines artist do, and I toggle the horizontal on and off with some dream-watcher power (not the me of the dream, the me of me/myself dreaming) and I realize they look half-drawn because the flash is so bright.
      Then it subsides and I see their normal faces.
      Flash back to me going back into the cafeteria room with everyone. The wine is being served.
      "I think I forgot to order somehow" I say and the waitress/teacher (there's only like, 2 teachers here, she's one of them) sighs and says they can put in a last minute order for a price. Well, I guess, sure.
      I ask her if she lives here year round, half knowing she must not, but just curious.
      "Oh, no. This place is inaccesssible half of the year."

      Some kind of time skip, and I'm on "leave" from the school, like a vacation or something.
      I'm in Walmart in the back room. I came here very much on a mission. My job is like an assassination. I track people down with my team and tell them to go to jail or we'll kill them. We hunt out people who get away with bullshit.
      I'm walking and I don't know who my target is until I do (the first person I see: I can feel the dream being made up as I go along).
      Its Torrey. I feel bad, some part of me who knows it was random. But he sees us, my team and I, and knows what's coming.
      I threaten him. I don't remember the exact words but I make the offer, tell him we know what happened.
      "We have a graveyard for you all set up. Westskull or Eastskull cemetary, your choice. But I'd rather you atone. YOU MUST ATONE FOR YOUR SINS AND GO TO JAIL."
      He's getting really nervous but refusing. He doesn't want either. He tries me: "How do you know, you have the paper?" "Yes, I do" "So you were in the cop car when it happened? I doubt it" and true doubt flashes on his face, but I know what my job is and I know I'm right, so I press onward. YOU MUST ATONE!!!
      A roll-up door rolls up and a truck is parked out there. I have to get away from the situation, and I know my dream makes it up that I can dive under the truck like its my get-away vehicle, so it is (That dream faculty!). I do, and I'm nervous it won't work, that I'm making it up and he's going to get me, but the car rolls away and I'm unharmed as I'm dragged out of the building underneath it. In the parking lot I hop up into the cab.
      I see my buddy, the driver, and know I'm safe. He has a super-long lens camera. I take it so he can drive.
      We getaway. I fuck with the camera, but it won't stop zooming/adjusting. I go to turn the zoom off, but the body is super-blank.
      "Simple camera," I say. "Yeah, it's probably not good." I finally take some shots. They look good. "Nah, it's great."
    2. [22-01-2017: 9th competition night

      by , 01-22-2017 at 11:16 AM (Snehk's Dreamlands)
      I saw some underground cavern with small, blue glowing crystals. There was a whole society of intelligent chinchilas. They have gathered in the middle of the cavern. Chinchilla elder had some sack with glowing crystals, all of them were arguing until he made them quiet and said about prophecised end of the world. Suddenly water started gathering in the cavern. I turned into that elder chincilla with crystals. Everyone was escaping, but I decided that it would be for the better if I dive deeper and drown.

      Suddenly I found myself in my home, barricaded. Looking through windows I saw legions of zombies smashing everything on their way and going towards my house. I tried to move from bathroom to kitchen, but there were two zombies in the hallway. I ran past them, but doors to kitchen were barricaded too. Suddenly my sister with grandma opened them and helped me close them so zombies won't get us.
    3. Killed by my own Mother! And What Happens After Death.

      by , 08-29-2015 at 01:14 AM (Schmaven's Dream Journal of Randomness)
      Driving down the highway with my mom in the driver's seat, we're talking about things. You know, the usual update stuff that doesn't change much from week to week. My girlfriend comes up in the conversation at some point and my mom get's really jealous. I can tell she's really upset over something. She stops talking and just steps on the gas. Okay, so she's upset, that's fine I think as I watch the scenery whip by faster and faster.

      I look over at her and she's practically in tears now as we pass 100 mph. I start to feel uncomfortable as she drives faster and faster. She and I are pretty well connected, and without saying a word, I just know that she's thinking, "If I can't have him, no one will" and that she's going to crash the car and kill us both. At this point we're going over 120 mph and I don't know what to do about this situation. I consider taking the wheel and spinning the car out of control to a stop, but since we're going so fast, that could be just as deadly as whatever she has planned. That's actually the only thing I think to do other than ride it out.

      Maybe if I just sit here peacefully she'll have a change of heart before it's too late... I quietly hope as the situation gets super tense for me. I see a turn in the road with no guard rail, and a huge cliff over the edge. This must be where she's headed. That's okay though, we still have a few seconds for her to change her mind. No sooner do I think that than the car careens off the road and over the cliff. My stomach sinks, my hair stands on end, and I look out the window. Several hundred feet below I can hardly see the ground it's so far away. This is it, this is how my end finally comes I think as it dawns on me that there's no way out of this one.

      Despite the distance, in a matter of seconds the car smashes into rocks below. The dash smashes my head and everything goes black after a brief white flash.

      Gradually, some color starts to fade into my awareness and I find myself standing amidst massive crystals of every color, all arranged immaculately and beautifully. The most amazing sight I've ever seen! It all feels so peaceful as well.

      I walk through the crystals as I sense some purpose for me. I don't know precisely what I am supposed to do, but I do know that I can't just stay put and kick off my shoes just yet. So I walk through a breathtaking crystal maze with glowing lights coming from just about every crystal. I don't know what I'm looking for, but I'm looking for something.

      I reach a huge palace and dozens of really nice people greet me. They're all strangely familiar, yet I can't quite place how I know them. Also, they all seem so peaceful and happy, like everything is perfect, and they have no worries. They call out to me and we exchange small talk for a bit. It comes up that I can really do anything I want now. I think about this for a second and decide that the best thing I can do is show the example of someone attaining enlightenment, and refocus my mind on the spiritual path.

      Everything starts to blur for a bit, and I reappear clearly firing a rocket at someone who is trying to steal a huge diamond from a bank. As I fire the rocket, I realize it's my mom! Somehow I manage to stop it from killing her and run over. She looks at me hesitantly, as I do the same to her. I don't know if I can let my guard down around her anymore after she just killed me. She apologizes for killing me and we talk about what happened after I died. She tells me that she survived the crash, but I didn't. It was deemed an accident, but she was really distraught over it for a long time. I tell her that it's okay, I forgive her. But it still might take me some time before I get in the car with her again.

      She's okay with that.
    4. Fragment: Crystal car

      by , 08-05-2015 at 06:57 PM (Snehk's Dreamlands)
      It was cold morning. I was wearing a black t-shirt and brown trousers. I was going towards a bus stop. I waited for a while, and then a redhead woman drove to me in almost fully transparent car made out of crystal. I entered it, and we drove away.

    5. Unsafe Mining

      by , 05-01-2015 at 10:12 AM
      1 May 2015

      I find myself working at an above the ground mine. It seemed that many of the teachers/workers where on leave or sick.
      Everyone was capitalizing on the long weekend and this left a group of us confused on who was in charge as superiors where minimal. Linds ran around sorting out things at a frantic pace, but not knowing much when I asked her what to do.
      Reza and Mikey Roman with 80's dreads climbed the dangersous ladder that where laden with rock debris to be removed and proccessed. After climbing up to help i realised I had no saftey harness or hard hat..a recipe for disaster considering the nature of work. I climbed down the ladder and skateboarded toward a cave, trying a few kick flips on the way.

      Inside was a man busy cutting smokey quarts crystals with a hand device. He tells me he's unable to help me find the safety equipment after genuinely trying. Suddenly there was panic in the air as a gushing river flowed into the cave threatening to drown us.

      All turned to black.
      ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Brandon, my cousin, showed me a new haircut I could wear which didn't look half bad. Michael Roman and his girlfriend modified his dreadlocks 80's style, and I could apparently do the same.

      My girlfriend and I went to the outer to rondavel bugalows and found a strange ladyboy in the room, looking at us with a prehensile appendage, sexually.
    6. Being Pursued By Murderers, Brief Lucidity, and a Crowded Skating Rink

      by , 08-08-2014 at 03:12 PM (Krista's Dream Journal)
      Dream - Lucid

      I was in a grocery store with many other people. Two people had been let in that wanted to murder us, an older guy and a younger girl. One person had already gotten pretty much killed; his head was being held on only by this full body cast. I knew that once that was gone, his head would fall off. I "remembered" it as if it had happened before. I was being pursued by the girl, probably of about 18-20 or so. She was skinny and had her blonde hair pulled up into a ponytail. I was on the ground in one of the aisles, and she was trying to stab me with this sharp, yellow crystal. I kept avoiding it and was trying to fight her off. I think I may have gotten hit a couple of times, but I can't remember for sure. I was yelling for help quite a bit, hoping someone would hear me.

      Eventually, I fought her off. I got the crystal from her hands, so now, she had no means to kill me with. We were both standing up now, facing one another. I remember looking at her face and she just had this evil smile. I also noticed she was wearing some sort of uniform; I remember dark red being one of the colors in it. We somehow got her and the guy out of there. I remember speaking with the guy whose head was beheaded and being kept alive.

      Later, we locked the front glass doors. We were standing by them, and I saw the two murderers standing outside, trying to get in. I was talking to someone, telling them NOT to let those people in no matter what. They would try to coerce their way in. They'd try to play on their pity. But they were NOT good people and would kill us. I knew the girl would come back after me. I thought about her getting another crystal. I believe the guy fought with a crystal as well.

      I remember at one point seeing the guy who got beheaded without his body cast. His head slid off his body, or almost did.

      I then was in a garage somewhere. I saw Dallas in the doorway, and realized, out of the blue, that I was dreaming. I said
      "Dallas! This is a dream!"
      He had started to speak to me during my exclamation. I wasn't sure if he had heard me. He then said something about it being a dream, so I knew he had.
      I went up to him, and felt the dream was going to end soon; it felt a bit unstable. I examined my hands, focusing on their detail, and it worked for a little bit. I was standing with him and started to remove my clothes, when everything around me gained a faint white aura.


      I then woke up.

      ~

      I was at the skating rink I used to frequent in my youth. The rink was much smaller than I remember; they had re-done it so it now it was much more cramped, and you could barely skate on it if there were too many people. There were many people there, mostly kids. I looked at the rink from the side area and thought about how cramped it looked, and that it wouldn't be nearly as much fun now that it was like this. I'm pretty sure I had skates on. I remember seeing some of the employees that patrolled the rink, skating around on the crowded rink with the kids, guiding them over hurdles and such. There were just too many people. I wanted to skate freely, not cramped up with a zillion little kids. I also had a point where I wondered if I was too old to be there. I felt kind of weird being one of the oldest people there.

      I was there at some point before the rink opened. I wondered if I could skate even though it was closed. There was no one there at least, so I'd have it all to myself.


      ~

      I was dreaming something this morning when my husband was about to leave for work. He was stroking my shoulder IWL, and I kept falling in and out of sleep. I finally woke up so he could tell me goodbye and that he'd see me later.

      ~

      I know I dreamed way more than this last night, and I told myself I'd remember, but alas.

      Though I am happy for the lucidity I've been having lately, even if it's just brief. I have been lucid WAY more lately than I have in a very long time, dare I saw ever. Usually I'm lucid on average once per week when I'm focused on it. I've been lucid every other night just about. It's been a huge change of pace. I'm happy for it. Hoping it continues. I guess I just need to keep doing what I'm doing, meditate more regularly, and use more intention.

    7. Crystal

      by , 07-30-2013 at 07:32 PM (Casting Shadows)
      [I had this dream after waking up and not remembering anything, not even solid dream fragments. I threw a bit of a mental bitch fit and I guess Subby gave me this dream as compensation. I'm down with that!]

      Apparently I was over at Jasper's place (or he was at mine, which may have been the case as the room was shaped like mine). He and I were playing The Sims 3. I focused in the game and became an observer inside of it. My Sim family was having a party outside and their Toddler was sitting in a high chair. One of the parents looked in its direction because they thought that the game had forced an age transition and the Toddler was turning into a Child, but no such case.

      By the time I was done with The Sims 3 Jasper had turned into Luna, an old childhood friend. Luna's older sister may have also been there.

      I was sitting down on the floor in front of the bed and Luna was playing with a lighter. Instead of spouting out fire, it was crystal shaped in the stereotypical shape of a diamond (a few of them). If she pulled the lighter back while holding the button down then crystals would appear there, and if she held it higher then the crystals would follow her lead. Well eventually she stopped and but in some movie in my XBox 360 and the two of us laid down together in my bed. After a little bit Luna asked me to set the loop when one of the characters screamed "Gooooooooooo!" When I asked her why she explained that we "might as well be happy." This task proved harder than I expected it to be because I missed at the beginning and we had to keep listening to the characters talk, but Luna was okay with that.

      Later on I went into the living room and watched some show with my parents. It was pretty good, though I don't remember much about it. There was one particular character named Emmett, but all I remember from him is that he had high-ish cheekbones. If I remember correctly then in the story, if the characters did something wrong or if they survived for a certain amount of time, then they would be turned into crystal. Near the end of the episode Emmett and one of the others (a female character) knew that it was their time to go and so they awaited their fate with open arms. The episode ended and I went outside.

      At first it was at night and it looked like it usually does in Greentree. I must have seen Jason and some other people at some point though. Towards here is a blank in my memory and then the landscape looks more like the area of Pine Plains that my family lived in when I was still attending SPPHS. Jason is with (not "dating with") a girl that goes to my school but who I never talk to. As the three of us are walking down the hill that leads to the trailer park in the SPPHS school district, I notice that neither of them have any of their teeth; apparently they had been doing crystal meth.

      By now the sun has come up again and I go back inside to watch another episode of that show. It's showing the opening theme and there is a portrait of Emmett and someone else (perhaps the chick that was crystallized with him). The portrait changed and so the show revealed that Emmett was none other than Adolf Hitler.

    8. Talkative Guy

      by , 07-27-2013 at 12:46 AM (The Dream Magic Experiment)
      I was walking with a cute guy along the streets of Bacolod/Katipunan at night. He was talking a lot. I didn't mind. We went to a store. A temple with Chinese designs. A Chinese dragon statue. Orange and white designs. It reminded me of the MWSS area in Katipunan. He bought a crystal and linen there. At first, I thought the clerk will deny selling stuff there, because my sis tried buying there before and they didn't sell. But the clerk removed the covers above a dusty cabinet and drew out some stuff.

      He put two crystals with rainbow colors on a container and poured something on it that's supposed to clean it but also made it hot. I thought sulfur, but I might be referring to sulfuric acid. The cute guy touched it and said it's hot, and I also tried touching it. It is but not very. The clerk took out linen (actually, gauze) from behind some stuff. I thought, THIS is linen?

      The cute guy finally chose one of the crystals and we left. We went to a place with seats and talked face to face. He was telling me about Nimz and the strange position he had with his gf. I pulled the cute guy closer to me, but I'm starting to wonder if he's also interested in me or he's just plain too talkative and has no one else to talk to.

      Scene changed to some dormitory with a lot of people.
    9. First LD

      by , 08-28-2012 at 12:44 AM
      I am standing in my room next to my bed. I know that I am dreaming because I had an instant transition from laying in bed to my current position.

      I run down the stairs past my cat (who is sitting in mid-air ) to the front door and look out the window. It is dark outside, but still light enough to see everything clearly. I unlock the door, turn the knob, and think, "What if I'm not dreaming?" which scares me and gets my heart rate up. I looked back out the window and noticed a motorcycle in the front yard (with only the rear wheel) which reassures me that I am dreaming, because we don't own one. I calm down and concentrate on a beach, trying to teleport there as I open the door. This doesn't work, which frustrates me. I see a short, hooded person standing in the yard (closest I can relate him to is a goblin) and ask him why I can't teleport. He motions to follow him, which I do - around to the side of the house. I see a large cluster of crystals. the "goblin" then pretends to throw one of them to the ground. I say thanks, pick one up, throw it to the ground, and yell "the beach!" as it shatters into a cloud of smoke. I am now at a beach, staring at the waves. I get so exited to have done it that I wake up.

    10. DB Goal Attempt, Post Apocalypse, Short DEILD, Nuking an Alien (March 6, 2012)

      by , 05-05-2012 at 03:13 AM (Chronicles of Ethos)
      DreamLucidAwake

      DB Goal Attempt

      This dream was very blurry and fragmented. I was standing outside a tower that was similar to the one I trained fury mode on. Chris was standing next to me and mentioned something about "60 seconds". At this moment I remembered the Dreamer Base goal of the month and became lucid. I quickly started running up to the tower because I knew there would be a mailbox at the top. A dragon was flying outside the tower as I was running up the stairs. It started shooting fire at me, so I shot fire back. I was assuming the letter would tell me how to defeat the dragon. When I got to the top I saw a green mailbox. I don't remember what happened next though.

      Post Apocalypse

      A blurry and fragmented dream again. I was running up Main Street in Loudonville. The city was abandoned and desolate. It looked like it had been nuked or something. I remember I was being chased by something. I think they were mutants. I ran inside my grandmother's house, which was surprisingly unaffected by the nuke. I ran into the basement, somehow thinking there would be a way to escape there. Much like the Missing Baby dream, there was an optical illusion down there that hid a staircase and hallway from view. Remembering how this happened in that particular dream, I did the nose plug reality check. I was able to breathe through and I became lucid. I ran into the hidden hallway and ran down the stairs. The dream was really unstable though and I woke up.

      Short DEILD

      I managed to remain aware of my awakening from the last dream. I kept my eyes closed, didn't move, and focused on the dream I just had. It was only about 10 seconds before I slipped right back into the same dream from before. I was lucid of course when I entered the dream. I was lying down on the floor where I had left off. I was having trouble moving at first, but eventually got past that. I started running along the dark hallway again. Sadly, something woke me up again. Maybe it just wasn't the right time of night for a stable dream.

      Nuking an Alien

      Yet, another blurry and fragmented dream. I guess it was just a problem that night. I was lucid right from the start and I think I might have used DEILD. I'm not sure though. I was on Mars and there were a hundred Aranian soldiers or more riding around on flying scooters. It was a very sci-fi styled dream. They were all flying around some floating alien and shooting lasers from their scooters. The alien was generating a shield and shooting lasers at the soldiers. I noticed that the alien had many crystals surrounding its body. It was gathering energy from them. That's probably one of the main reasons the Aranians were trying to take it down.

      I was just standing there and watching the awesome fight passively. The general then started to speak to me through a radio. "Dragonborn! We need your help!" He said. I then remembered that dropping a nuke was something I always wanted to do. I locked onto the aliens energy and then made a downward motion with my hand. A nuke then landed on the alien and blew it to pieces. Unfortunately the explosion was so powerful that my dream destabilized and I woke up.

    11. Haven - Silver & Stealing a crystal

      by
      Hyu
      , 02-25-2012 at 02:32 PM (Hyu's Adventures)
      (I can't really remember the beginning of the dream and how I got there)

      I'm in Haven with Yuya, Faye, Liv and Silver.
      Silver is in Haven on business, I think he delivered an important package or something along those lines.
      Yuya somehow talked him into taking a drink with us, and he is visibly displeased for accepting this offer.

      Silver is a man who doesn't like to socialize much.
      He is a fighter. He lives from battle to battle with little concern for other things.
      Or so he used to be until he met us. Over the course of years we made him realize that he was fighting for the wrong side, which was obviously quite devastating for him.

      He has changed his lifestyle since then, but it seems like he only lives to atone for his sins.
      He doesn't have the same concept of friendship that we do, he considers us brothers in arms.
      I wonder if that will ever change.


      Faye is playing with a pony she has summoned.


      What is it with all the ponies in my dreams since I've watched the MLP pilot?
      I blame the guys on DV IRC...

      Liv appears to be scared of Silver.
      Yuya, Silver and I are talking whilst drinking some sort of lemonade.
      But things aren't going well, Silver really doesn't want to talk, he just replies with "Yes" and "No" mostly.

      I think about my situation. Sometimes this feels a bit like living a second life.
      I wonder if that is weird? No... it isn't.


      Silver leaves and I agree to help Yuya with something... (though I cannot recall what exactly with)



      ... Yuya and I are on another planet, entering some sort of temple.


      We are here to obtain a certain item related to the device that powers the protective barrier for Haven.
      Some of these devices were stolen a long time ago, but most of them have been returned.
      There's still a few missing though, and this is one of them.

      I can't really recall what the plan is, but I believe we are here to steal it.
      Yuya and I are both disguised with the same attire worn by the monks in this temple, and we mimic their movements in order to not draw any attention to us.

      But before we encounter the first monk, Yuya gives me an angry look.

      "What?"
      "Your hair!"

      She's right. My hair is slightly blue-ish, which would draw a lot of attention.
      I shake my head and my hair color changes into pitch black.
      Yuya nods, confirming that this is much better.

      We enter deeper layers of the temple and no-one seems to notice us, things seem to be going rather well.
      That is, until we encounter a locked door.
      There is a computer terminal in front of it, presumably responsible for opening the door.

      "Open the door, I'll cover you."

      Right. I approach the terminal which asks for a password.
      Well, I'm not sure what I was expecting.

      "I don't know the password."

      Yuya looks at me confused.

      "You're supposed to hack into it?"
      "Huh? How...?"
      "Well... you can hack into things no?"
      "I can?"
      "What about all those movies you've watched, they show you how to hack don't they?"
      "Err Yuya... those movies are fiction, you can't just hack into something, it's a rather complicated and time consuming thing to do."
      "Oh..."

      Well... that's not good. But then I have an idea.
      I touch the door with my left hand and enlarge my aura to encompass the whole door in order to get a feel for the interior mechanics.
      It's a rather simple system with locking bolts, like in a safe.
      I proceed to create small gravitational fields for each bolt and pull them out of their locks.
      I then casually open the door smiling at Yuya.
      She grins.

      We enter what appears to be a treasure or storage room.
      There are quite a few fancy looking boxes, most likely all containing very exotic and important items.
      Yuya immediately spots the correct box and proceeds to open it.
      This requires removing a considerable amount of locks, which is taking quite some time.
      I decide to cover her until she's done.

      After a short period of time I feel a presence.
      There's someone else in this room, but I cannot see him.
      I reach out with my aura and find 'something' approaching Yuya that is not visible.
      I immediately blink next to it, whilst summoning my katana and take a defensive pose.

      A monk materializes, holding a staff.
      He seems contemplating to attack us.

      "I'd advise against that"
      "Thief!"
      "We are merely returning what does not belong to you."

      He decides to attack us anyways.
      He leaps forward, swinging his staff at me.
      I blink right behind him and slap him in the neck.
      He drops to the ground unconscious.

      "We should probably hurry up."

      A mob of angry monks is running towards our room.
      I yet again create a gravitational field, and use it to close the safety door.
      I then launch a stream of fire at it, welding the locking bolts in place.
      This ought to slow them down.

      Yuya finally manages to open the box, and takes out a tiny transparent crystal.
      She smiles at me.

      "This is it!"

      Monks are teleporting through the door. How did I not think of that?

      "Open a portal, I'll hold them off!"

      I power up. I feel the dragon tattoo on my back growing and erupting into flames.
      Time slows down.
      The monks are charging at me one after another.
      I slash down their staffs with my katana, and push them away with shockwaves.
      I try not to hurt them too much, after all I do not know if they know the details about the current situation.
      They might just be trying to defend what they think is theirs.

      "Hyu!"

      The portal is up. I blink backwards, next to Yuya, and we both jump through the portal...

    12. Escape Boat, Escape Train, Escape Plane (January 27, 2012)

      by , 01-28-2012 at 04:02 AM (Chronicles of Ethos)
      DreamLucidAwake

      Escape Boat

      Before this dream started, I was testing day dream awareness. I was day dreaming about odd things because my mind wasn't fully awake. I day dreamed that I was swimming in the ocea after a cruise ship. Just to make a key point, I was climbed onto the ship by a really long ladder. Now onto the dream.

      I was sneaking around a facility (of what kind I do not know) with the elf. I was wearing a backpack that must have been full of a lot of stuff because it was heavy. I was also carrying a couple bottles of Gatorade and some granola bars in my left arm. It seemed that we were looking for supplies and anything useful. She opened a chest in the corner of the room and started digging through a bunch of junk. I think she even tossed out a rubber chicken as she was digging. Inside the chest she found a large old book, a compas, a couple sacks of something, a can of gasoline, and a familiar looking blue crystal. She put the book, compas, and crystal in her satchel bag. She tied a string around the gas can and put it around her other shoulder. She carried the sacks of what I think was fruit in her left arm.

      "I think we have enough supplies now." She said.
      "Agreed. How do we get out of here again." I said looking around confused.
      "That ladder over there." She said pointing behind me.

      She walked past me and started climbing the ladder. I followed right behind her, but she somehow got to the top in like 10 seconds. It took me a while to climb the ladder because of how heavy my backpack was.
      About half way up the ladder I suddenly became lucid because climbing the ladder seemed familiar to me. It may just be coincidence, but I think my day dream might have been successfully helped me become lucid in a way.

      "Guess who's lucid!" I shouted happily as I neared the top.
      "That's nice. Just hurry up." She said as she grabbed my hand.
      "Grouch..." I said as I climbed to the top.

      We started walking through a dimly lit metal hall that felt kind of sci-fi. I started to get a weird feeling as I followed her. It felt like something was about to happen and I think she felt it too.

      She stopped and said, "Be careful, I think there's a trap ahead."
      "Doubt it." I said trying to be positive.

      She slowly started walking forward. Then out of know where I heard a streaking sound and saw blood splatter from her stomach. She fell to the ground and lied there motionless.

      "Holy crap!" I said as I ran over to her.
      I lifted her head and asked her, "Are you okay? Can you move?"

      She could only moan in pain. I looked down and saw a huge gash in her stomach. 100 thoughts went through my mind at once for what I could do to save her. Then the thought of simply healing her wound came to mind.

      "Okay, don't worry, I think I can heal you." I said to her.
      I held out my hands and spoke to myself, "Just focus the magic in my hands..."
      "I'm ready!" I shouted once my hands started to glow white.

      I then placed my hands over her wound and released the energy into her body. She glowed brightly for a moment. I shielded my eyes and when I looked back her wound was completely healed. She opened her eyes and slowly stood back up. She was alive now, but it looked like she barely had enough energy to stand.

      "Awesome! I can heal people now!" I congratulated myself.
      "Just hurry up." She said stumbling to through the hall.
      "What? No thank you?" I said catching up to her.

      The hall led outside. I could see that it was the middle of the night and there was an ocean outside. At the end of the hall was a ladder that went down 10 feet. The elf started climbing down the ladder slowly, but I just jumped straight down. I sat there for a minute or so waiting for her to climb all the way down. We then walked over to a motor boat sitting next the docks.

      "Be very careful, or they'll spot us." She whispered.
      "I know, I know." I said.
      "Take the supplies and put them on the boat while I fill it with gas." She told me.

      She grabbed a bunch of bags that were sitting next to the boat and handed them to me. She then tossed the two sacks of fruit and her satchel on top of that. I quickly lost my balance and I stumbled back. I fell onto the boat and tipped it over and all of the supplies were in the water.

      "You idiot!" She yelled at me.
      "Don't worry! I'll get the stuff back!"
      "Don't forget to bring back my bag!" She yelled as I started swimming.

      I turned the boat back rightside up so she could fill it with gas. Then I started swimming around the harbor gathering the stuff I lost and putting it back in the boat. Right when I thought I had everything I remembered her satchel. I looked around for it, but I couldn't find it. Then I thought about the possibility of it sinking. I dove underwater to look for it, but it was too dark to see. I then remembered that she stuck a blue crystal inside the bag. It seems that crystals glow when I get near them, so I thought it might glow if I put a lot of focus on it. Luckily it worked, and I saw the bag glowing bright blue between two rocks. I grabbed it and brought it back to the boat.

      By the time I got there the elf had already finished filling the boat with gas. She was sitting in the drivers seat ready to get going. I climbed into the boat and we drove away. The dream ended right about here.


      Escape Train

      Me and the elf were sitting in a very large dimly lit room with a bunch of train tracks. We were in another facility again and trying to escape again. We planned to escape by train, but we needed a train first and to change the direction of the tracks. We walked through a door with a light above it. The room we walked into had a series of ladders that we needed to climb. It was kind of like if Donkey Kong was made 3D. We climbed the first ladder onto a platform. When we climbed up to it there were a few scorpions on the ground.

      "Ahh! Scorpions!" I screamed.
      "What do we do?" She asked me.
      "Kick them! Kick them!" I said as I stomped on one and kicked it.

      Once the scorpions were dead we climbed up the second ladder.
      As I climbed the second ladder I became lucid in the same way I did in the last dream.

      "Ladders? Again? What the hell?" I thought out loud.
      "Deal with it." The elf told me.

      We climbed to the second platform and kicked a few more scorpions before climbing to the third. On the third platform there was another door with a light above it. I tried to open it, but it was locked. I was about to think of a way to pick the lock before the elf charged into it. I think it was a bit much to have to break it open, but it worked. We walked into a well lit control room. There were too large windows on each side looked over too different train stations.

      "Go get the train while I guard the door." She said.
      "Okay, but what levers do I pull and what buttons do I press?" I asked her.
      "I don't know. Just pull all of the levers." She said kicking a scorpion.

      I walked over to the left window that overlooked our train station. There seemed to be something in the way that was blurring the glass. I pressed a red button to the right of it and the blurry glass slid out of the way. I still could barely see anything though because of how dark it was in there. So I pressed another button to the right of the window and the lights in the station turned on.

      "Hey! They told me lights don't work in dreams!" I said.
      "Hurry up. You're wasting time." She ordered me.

      I saw a rope hanging above me and I pulled down on it. A train then appeared on one of the tracks in the station. I then saw about 10 red levers below the window. I flipped them all down and as I did that the tracks started to straighten themselves out.

      "I did it!" I shouted in excitement.
      "Good. Now let's get out of here."
      "Wait. There's something wrong." I said starting to get a horrid feeling.
      "What did you do this time?" She asked me.
      "It feels like there's something down there..." I said trying to find it through the windows.
      "Just go already." She ordered me.

      We ran past the scorpions and jumped straight down the ground floor. When we walked out the door into the station we were both shocked by what we saw. There was some sort of monster in the station. It was 7 feet tall, had purple flesh, and a sword like claw on each hand. He took a couple of steps towards us and licked the blood off his blade. We took a couple steps back in terror of what we were seeing.

      "Look out!" She yelled as he lunged towards us.

      He tried to swipe us both with his two blades, but we both rolled out of the way. Although I really really really didn't want to fight this thing, I morphed into a black dragon.

      "Get to the train!" I told her as I lunged at the monster.

      I gripped with my back claws and started shredding it with my front claws and teeth. The elf then tried running past the monster towards the train. The monster quickly knocked me off of him and turned towards the elf as she ran by. He motioned to take a swipe at her and I slowed down time. I quickly ran between them and attempted to block the attack with arm. The good news was he wasn't able to slice off her head. The bad news is cut my arm really bad and it hurt. I fell to the floor as the elf stood at the back of the train. As the monster was about to take a final stab at me the elf fired a lightning bolt at it. I got up and ran towards the train as fast as I could while the monster chased after me. Once I got inside she pressed a button that closed a strong metalic door. The last thing I remember before waking up was the monster banging on the door, but failing to break it down.


      Escape Plane

      I can't remember the whole dream. I was on a plane trying to escape again from I don't know what. The seats were oddly arranged like a movie theater and there were a lot of fancy people on board. Then I saw two men and a woman from the back row run towards the cockpit. It looked pretty suspicious to me, so I followed them. When I ran in, the two men had their guns pointed at the pilots. I became lucid at this moment. The woman noticed me and pointed her gun at me.

      "What are you guys doing?" I asked.
      "What does it look like? We're hijacking this plane!" She told me.
      "Why?" I asked.
      "Because we're terrorists! That's what we do!" She said.

      I was about to ask her another question, but she was getting a bit annoyed with me and shot me in the head.
      The next thing I know, I'm sitting back in same seat I was before. The only difference now was that I seemed to be the only passenger.

      "Woah, weird lucid day dream." I thought to myself.
      "Waaaiiit a minute...
      I wasn't day dreaming! That was a real dream! And this is still a dream!" I yelled out loud.

      I then got curious about where everyone was and walked into the cockpit. The terrorists were there again and the two men in the group were trying to fly the plane.

      "Hello again." The woman said to me.
      "Where are the pilots...?" I asked loking around.
      "Over there." She said pointing her gun at two dead bodies in the corner.
      "Oh jeez..." I said looking at the bodies.

      I walked over to the two men flying the plane. They were doing a pretty crappy job. The radar showed that we were approaching the landing zone.

      "There's no way you can land this thing without crashing it." I told them.
      "Just wait and see!" She said.
      "We're starting to descend." One of the men said.

      I walked back into the passenger area and sat down. I tried thinking of a way for me to survive this situation. The only reasonable thing I could come up with was jump out. I saw the emergency exit door and opened it. I waited until we were very close to the ground before I jumped out. I did a roll when I hit the ground in an attempt to lessen the damage on me. Hitting a road at over 100mph is still gonna hurt though and I flew all over the place like a ragdoll. When I finally came to a stop I was on my back. I looked over to see the plane crash into another plane on the ground and explode.

      "Holy crap! This freaking hurts!" I yelled before I woke up.

    13. Orange Crystals, It's Halloween Again (January 26, 2012)

      DreamLucidAwake

      Orange Crystals

      I don't remember much of this dream. I was walking along a dirt road and saw a hut. I walked inside the hut to see if I could find anything interesting. Inside the old man was sleeping on a hammock. I snuck past him and walked over to a table on the other side of the room. The table seemed to be made out of dirt and grass. Even stranger, an orange crystal was growing out of it. I touched the crystal and it started to glow brightly before shattering into a hunder little pieces. I reached my hand out towards them again to see what would happen. They started floating and turned into a magical energy that absorbed into my arm. I started freaking out and shaking my arms because I didn't know what was happening. The old man woke up as this happened.

      "You fool!" He said grabbing my arm.
      "What just happened?!" I asked him.
      "You absorbed the crystal that was powering my shield!" He told me.

      I heard footsteps from outside the hut and turned towards the door. An orc warrior with a sword and armor stood outside. He roared and charged towards the hut. I saw a sword sitting on a shelf in the hut. I took it and ran outside to the orc. He swung his sword at me and I blocked it. He knocked me to the ground and I rolled back before he could stab me. I remembered that I had absorbed the magic from the crystals and focused it in my hands. I charged at the orc and pushed against its chest. An orange energy bursted out and that's the last thing I remember before waking up.


      It's Halloween Again

      I was in an empty parking lot with my mother. We had just finished putting groceries in the car. She got a phone call that reminded her it was Halloween. She told me something about it being Halloween again and that Micheal Myers would be looking for us. She then told me to unchain the car and that the code was "2921". I walked to the front of the car and there was a chain connecting the car to the metal railing. I realized that if it was already sunset Micheal could be anywhere by now. The lock on the chain dial with number 1-9 in a mixed order. It took me a while, but I finally got the code in and the chain broke. The next thing I know it's the middle of the night and I'm riding in the back seat of the car. I became lucid when I was told to keep an eye out for Micheal Myers. I knew that if the dream continued and we got home I would have to fight Micheal Myers. I then debated whether I should let the dream continue and fight him or if I should just wake up. I thought about it for a few minutes before I woke up involuntarily.

      Lucid Dream 226: The Land of Judgement
      Series: Tartarus of the Dream World, Episode 1
      WILD
      around 8:00pm



      I woke up from my previous dream and got something to eat. I watched some t.v. for a bit and still felt tired. I decided to WILD. I performed my technique and soon SP set in.

      I started to slowly spin around in my bed and then floated around the room. I heard some muffled conversation and a few screams here and there. Finally, the dream settled in and I stood up. I noticed there was a man standing in my room. He looked familiar. I shouted, "Where the f*** have you been?" The old man turned around and I noticed it was Merlin the Wizard...my "dream guide." He spoke up and said, "You haven't needed me, but I have always been watching." I thought that was a little creepy, but replied, "So, what brings you here now?" I noticed Merlin was wearing a long brown traveling cloak, and held a large, white magical staff with a blue crystal on the end of it. His long, white and grey beard matched up perfectly with his long hair. He looked at me and said, "It is time for you to uncover the secrets of this world." I was very amused and intrigued all at the same time. I performed some quick stabilization techniques as Merlin began to chant.

      After a few moments a portal opened up and he ushered me into it. I dove head first into the portal and found my self in some sort of weird water slide. I was sliding head first through a strange purple tube. The texture was soft and very slippery. It reminded me of a frog's skin. The tube was many shades of purple and the more I observed it, the more it felt like I was inside the intestines of some strange creature. Luckily, there was nothing gross about it. It was an extremely fun water slide that twisted, turned, and had several awesome drops. Finally, i came to the end of the slide which was suspended over a massive lake. I fell around 100 feet from the end of the slide/tube and landed in the lake below.

      I plunged underwater and looked around. I could see several other DCs swimming around in the lake with me. I also noticed that the bottom of the lake could not be seen. The lake water was clear as crystal, but below me was nothing but a dark abyss. I freaked out a bit and kicked hard for the surface of the water (I have a slight fear of extremely deep water). I broke the surface and noticed everyone was swimming in a single direction. I figured I would follow. Suddenly, the person to my right was grabbed by something and drug under water. Splashing occurred all around me as demon-like beings began grabbing people and pulling them under. I sprang up out of the water like a dolphin and took flight. I flew to the shore. Several others made it to the shore and many seemed to be surprised by my flying ability. I told them all that we were lucid dreaming right now. One of them laughed and said, "Yeah...so is everyone else. You still shouldn't be able to fly down here!" You must be one of the chosen ones, eh?" I pondered the thought for a moment and then asked where we were. He replied, "We are in Tartarus of course." I looked around at the area I was in. The walls and ceiling were all made of crystal. The crystals and lake reflected a purple and blue light. The room was absolutely stunning. The DC warned me not to lust over the lake or it would draw me in. He also told me that this was, "The Lake of Judgement," and the unworthy would be dragged to its depths.

      After talking for a bit, we all walked through a large white gate. There was a group of about 30 of us and I just casually walked along with the crowd and tried to take in the environment. We made our way through many maze-like rooms. There was blood scattered all throughout the place as well as many dead bodies. After a bit, demon-like creatures began attacking. I easily fought these off with super human-lucid strength. I found a spear and began stabbing demon after demon. It appeared that most everyone in the group struggled fighting off the demons. Many died and were torn to shreds. After battling off the demons, I noticed the DC from before was still alive, but breathing heavily. He seemed amazed that I was able to use so much lucid power. I asked him for his name and he told me it was "Ash." We all began sliding through the same type tubes as before.

      This time, I landed in a large forest. Many of the trees had sinister faces and branches that looked like claws. I took off running through the forest and the rest of the survivors followed suit. Many were snatched by the evil trees and ripped to shreds. Whenever I came close to one of the evil trees, I placed my hands on it, focused, and set it ablaze. Once I made it to the end of the forest, there was a huge field. The sky was incredibly dark and I could see the silhouette of an enormous castle in the distance. Me, Asher, a hot female in ninja-like gear, and a native american man were the only four people left alive. The native american guy was actually a teenage version of Nightwolf from the video game series, Mortal Kombat. The female ninja was the teenage version of Jade from Mortal Kombat. Nightwolf said, "We have finally reached the land of judgement." I asked them who's bad ass castle that was and they told me it was the kingdom of Thanatos and the god resided in the castle.

      I was pumped and wanted to go battle Thanatos. I told them to catch up later and I took flight toward the castle. Once I got about halfway there, I noticed something flying at me from the distance. it was a dark silhouette and I knew it was Thanatos. Music started playing int he background. I could barely hear it at first, but as Thanatos approached, it got louder. It sounded like battle music. I decided to try and summon my keyblade. After a couple of attempts, I managed to summon a solid black sword. I decided that it must be my Zanpakutou (weapon/sword from the anime bleach). It was all black like Ichigo's sword, but the blade was much thicker and looked more like a claymore.

      I started to get excited as Thanatos approached. His face seemed human, but it was solid white. He was holding two large scythes, one in each hand. Each scythe had multiple black blades and at first it appeared as if he was actually holding about 20 of them. I swung my sword and he blocked it with one of his multi-bladed scythes. I landed on the ground and held my arm into the air. I shouted some nonsense that I can no longer remember and a stream of fire blasted from my hand. The dream became unstable at this point. I continued to battle Thanatos even though the dream was blurry, but I couldn't manage to keep the dream going. I stopped and tried to stabilize, but it was too late.


      I shall definitely be battling him again. This dream was one of my favorites so far. It felt like I was in some sort of bad ass anime-type story/plot.

    15. Visiting Space + Fragment

      by , 02-25-2011 at 03:38 PM (the Dream Almanac)
      Visiting Space

      My parents and I are going to visit outerspace. Its night time and we’re in a family car traveling to the space station. We stop at McDonalds and while they’re inside, I get into my space suit. It’s a stretchy black mesh material and on each side of me I have some control pads for my hands.

      When they come out, we eat and drive over to the station. Every family or visitor has their own cube inside a building (I don’t remember the building, just being in the cube). It’s a big wooden box with a wheelchair access incline inside of steps that lead into the center of the room. We get into place and I guess we rocket off!

      At first, we’re all nervous and doing our jobs stabilizing the cube in space and tracking ourselves to our destination. Then we settle down and my mom starts ice fishing, because there’s an empty hole in the bottom of the cube to the right side. I look into it and there’s just black black water, as if the water was over the blackness of space (and then floating beneath our cube?) The fish are mechanical but also organic in a way that they grow the mechanical parts of themselves. My dad is playing with fishing line and hooking little beads together on it and stringing it around the cube in a decorative way.

      I don’t remember landing, but we all are on stable ground now. I was unengaged with what my parents were doing for most of the trip and when I go over to them now that we’re here, I realize they’re fighting. They speak something about a lady that my dad meets here, or maybe a guy that my mom meets here. I don’t care! Let’s go explore!

      All of the cool parts are lost in memory. My mom is somewhere, and I’m with my dad. We are about to go into a museum for something. The world around us is the same as Earth, just more exciting because it’s NOT Earth. It feels like I’m in an amusement park, and everything could be mundane but still not that bad.

      Inside, the museum is a multi-tier building that stacks on top of itself. The biggest room is the first, and then you walk up stairs to a smaller room, etc until the last room which is an observatory. My dad and I are in the last room. Instead of peering out of the glass windows, I look at the display case in the center. There are a lot of crystal rock art sculptures. I’m amazed at one of them: It’s all solid clear crystal with a fist coming out of one side. I’d assume that it was carved to look that way, but so much of it seems to be natural. I am on another planet, so I don’t question it. I put it in my jacket after pondering about video cameras watching us and hoping they just aren’t around.

      We walk out and no one notices me or questions me. Outside, we have to go through a gate with a guard who’ll direct us to our next attraction. The big rock has slipped down my pant leg, settling kind of near my shoe. The exterior of the museum looks like my old neighborhood.

      On a tree there’s a hand painted sign that says “Give me one instant chocolate Reece’s cake mix and I’ll trade you a FREE TOILET!” That’s dumb, I think. No one wants a toilet. I have the conclusion that the guard we’re about to see put that sign up for everyone to see who comes from the museum, hoping someone has one of the cake mixes.

      He looks at me and my dad and doesn’t question my bulging pant leg. We’re directed to the cubelot, where we meet up with my mom. She’s mad at my dad and I see a voluptuous lady with a thousand blonde curls wave at my dad. I see! We get into the cube and start going home.

      Half-way through space, we stop at a little planet to get some food. It looks kind of like the other McDonalds. My dad meets his friend and tells us about some new information they found out about Earth.

      “They took apart all the walls on Earth and on the light switches they found hind markings. E.T. did it when he was having his stay on our planet! Whenever a light turns green, I puke.” My dream self thought this made sense: he implied that all the walls of Earth, as if there were walls on the “outside” of our planet, were inspected for residue of the infamous E.T. (the movie dude in my dream was an actual alien who visited for a little while). The light switches he spoke of were what made the traffic lights work. The word “hind” was a kind of sexual term that implied he tried to have sex with them.




      Fragment
      It’s the last two days of the world. Everything has been ending and I am alive for these last days. I jump between the layers of my potential realities, but it’s all over…
