    1. The Cruise (lucid)

      by , 03-29-2014 at 08:30 PM
      I am in a library. I'm not aware that I'm dreaming at the moment. The library is very odd, not much like the sort of library most people are accustomed to. It's very open and airy, almost more like a gigantic greenhouse or atrium than a library. I'm looking through one of the shelves. Instead of books, it holds cubes and rectangles of light. There's a young woman near me, and I think I vaguely know her. We may have come to the library together.

      Someone taps me on my shoulder. I turn around to look at them. The person is an older man, probably in his 60s or so. He has ash blond hair with some grey mixed in. I immediately know that this is The Doctor. He tells me that I'm dreaming. I suddenly realize that I am dreaming, and begin to wonder what I should do next.

      He points out one of the massive (4 story high) glass double doors, toward a dock on the edge of the tropical-looking bay, and tells me that a ship is coming into port. The edge of the horizon shimmers, and a cruise ship materializes and sails out of the shimmering portal. It's one of the largest ships I've ever seen, far larger than the largest existing cruise ships, so large that there is an actual city full of glass buildings atop it. I know that it's sailing on the water right now, but is also a space ship.

      "Why don't you explore a little bit?" he suggests. "Go on a cruise." The cruise ship is becoming clearer and more in-focus now. I decide that sounds like a fun idea.

      I jog to the dock and lift off into the air, then teleport to the deck of the ship. The tropical sun is very warm and bright, and all of the colors are intense. I'm amazed by how intense and realistic it is.

      I shade my eyes and look around. There's a large Olympic sized pool, and a woman in a straw hat and turquoise bikini sunning herself next to it. There are various tables and chairs, set up for outdoor dining. It's so bright that I have to squint, so I walk under the shade of a beach umbrella. The difference in brightness and temperature is startling.

      I feel the dream beginning to fade. I grab a towel and squeeze it in my hands, running my fingers over it. I drop to the ground and lick the deck (yes it's weird, but it works) but it just tastes like concrete. I'm irritated; why doesn't anything in my dreams taste like anything but what it actually is? I lick the concrete again, trying to make it taste like something else, but it still just tastes like concrete.

      The dream stabilizes again. A nearby table has a bowl of fruit on it. I grab a green-skinned apple and bite into it. It doesn't taste like an apple - it tastes like a ripe, juicy peach. It's extremely juicy and very good, so I continue eating it. I toss the core aside and decide to try to explore and see what's below deck. A door appears in the deck, and I open it and try to float downstairs, but everything goes dim and the dream falls apart.
    2. Nov 16 Dream Journal pt 2: Time to enter the DANGER ZONE!

      by , 11-16-2013 at 10:40 PM
      I woke up from having to go pee. When I crawled back in bed, I decided to practice reciting "I'm going to be dreaming" mantras for WILD practice. It usually takes me a really long time to fall asleep, but I think I was out within seconds. So that endeavor didn't go as planned.

      Dream two plopped me in a situation where Dr. Who (Matt Smith version. I'm team Tennant. This confuses me.) is having a witty argument with some other dude in a chic suit and vest. There is a problem with space time or whatever the dire situation is at the moment, and I vaguely recall the argument is about how much crappier the Doctor's TARDIS is compared to the other guy's device. I think the other guy called the TARDIS "it's a time tomb" derisively -- not the biggest burn, but it's the one line I remember.

      ANYWAYS, something something, because now they time-materialize the other guy's machine into what looks like the garage in my old home in Canada. Dream Knowledge tells me that in the room next to it is some sort of walk-in closet (I recall a lot of clothes hanging in the room), and there's Mallory Archer and a really old man in a wheelchair (he's someone's father based on Dream Knowledge), and Mallory is just berating the old man because she's drunk. The scene switches back and forth between the Archer scenes and Dr. Who scenes (though they are in the same universe), and I know whatever situation it was is being resolved.

      I wake up, and regret the life decision to watch the Archer Top Gun remake on a loop before going to bed.

      I attempted keeping a WILD mantra going for dream three, but my brain turned into a five-year-old and kept asking what Archer's first name is. I kept thinking "Sean?" even though I know it's not right. Clearly, my brain refused to let me sleep, so I hop out of bed.

      It took me all of 15 seconds after deciding I'm up for the day and leaving the warmth of my bed that my brain goes "Lol! His name was Sterling."
    3. 9/4/13

      by , 09-04-2013 at 04:06 PM (Illuminating the Dream Realm)
      Ok.. I guess the dream started with me and my sister having supper at some complete strangers house, but their dining room looked exactly like ours. It was an older man and lady. (their hair was graying) We had a massive amount of buffalo chicken tenders, and some fried mushrooms that a kid brought out to the table. I told him that they looked like the pokemon, "Shroomish", and he agreed then left.

      Before we ate, the lady wanted to say a prayer, however she brought out a painting of some windmills, and a random notecard and repeated a short prayer over and over again. When she was done, we talked and ate, but I don't remember much of the conversation. The mushrooms were gone almost immediately, but the buffalo chicken tenders seemed limitless. My stomach seemed to also be bottomless, as I ate a great many, and enjoyed each one. They weren't very spicy, which was good because there was no ranch dressing as far as I remember. The man had about seven on his plate, and was just picking at them.

      At some point during all of this, the scene around us had changed and we were now in their back yard. Our hosts got up from the table and walked into a garage. I followed them and found that the garage was bigger on the inside and full of trees.the man kept trying to put the woman in a tree, but she kept falling out and she was hitting the ground pretty hard. I told him to put her between two branches securely, and walked around a bit. when I came back, the man was standing by a ladder, looking much older than before, and the lady was on top of the ladder, limp as a sack. I somehow knew she was dead.

      I walked outside yelling "Forget this, I'm going inside, out of this rain!" The sky was very dark and it started to rain while I said it. I walked to the table and grabbed a two liter of red soda and some of that wonderful chicken. Then I went inside. After a while, The Doctor (Matt Smith) ran in and gave me a speech about not hiding from storms.

      I went back outside, and my WHOLE family was there. The old man had turned into my grandfather, and he gave my sister and I massive rolls of dollar bills, including some 100's. Then we all went to Dragoncon, where we waited for a premier showing of Dr. Who. There was a life sized weeping angel statue that actually moved when nobody was looking. (I actually convinced myself that it made sense because we have cameras that can track eye movement.)

      While we waited, I played with a soccer ball with some kids who may or may not have been my cousins. They were wearing full body costumes. The dream fades here.
    4. Anatomically Incorrect Dr Who

      by , 07-31-2013 at 07:58 AM
      In this non lucid dream fragment I was under the impression that I was Dr Who, even though I was famale. I remember running to the bathroom from some people who were either my enemies or authorities of sort or both. I remember locking the door. I peed a very long time. I remember thinking that if they saw how long I peed they would not doubt that I was the Doctor. Of course, Dr Who is known for having two hearts not an unusually large bladder, but in my dream, I did not know that.

    5. Mixed Up

      by , 03-14-2013 at 02:02 AM (Xanous' Dream Journal)

      Fragment #1 - 11:24PM

      Cartoon Doctor Who in a minecraft field

      Mixed Up 3:02am

      There are two of my mother-in-laws. One is an impostor. They look very similar but one has an obvious give away. They try to convince my wife that they are both real but she doesn't believe them. They get me to play along. I feel like a liar.
      My wife is in college. We are there with her. I see my ex-wife's Aunt V and her family but they are holograms being played in a loop in a fake house like some bad play. My dead grandmother is telling my wife, A, she needs to go to bed for school in the morning. I think I may as well go home. It's a 2 hour drive.

      Many disruptions from baby.
      Tired MILD then went to WILD. Almost there. Woken up many times.
      Tried DEILD. Recall suffered.

      Fragment #2 5:37AM

      Using the neighbors trash can outside. Somehow our houses are connected and open to each other on the inside. There is an open wall to a bedroom. The old cabinet TV my parents used to own is blocking the entrance. I see an actual doorway around the corner.
    6. Ghosts on the Lift

      by , 03-03-2013 at 05:33 PM (Strange Dreams Indeed, Petticoat)
      First thought in the dream, "great I'm dreaming again." I don't know what is causing this but it feels like I don't get enough sleep because my brain has been so active with dreams lately. I'm having back to back odd dreams.

      This one began with me getting some cuddle time from my man, but I knew it was a dream because we were outside laying in the snow and it was switching between daylight and moonlight too fast and details about the location were wrong. We were interrupted by our friend who wanted us to go check out his new site seeing lift. He was having problems with it. We get on with the tour guide, who sits behind a wheel in it and proceeds to drive us up, which didn't make sense because that is not how these things work. It was like a sight seeing ski lift that looked like an old VW van. Anyway we get to the top and Boogs (my dude) goes to check out the warehouse there. I know it sounds weird. Why would a tourist lift have a warehouse at the top? It's a dream and our friend is a little odd like that. So the warehouse is supposedly haunted. The driver won't get off the bus, so I'm stuck watching over her. Then I hear clashing metal, like pipes falling. And dumb horror movie move of course, I go check it out. Weaponless. Meanwhile, I'm thinking the problem is ghosts, but what if that's not what is up here. I find Boogs and we're suddenly surrounded by these shadows. The closest thing I can compare them to are the shadow people that paranormal experts talk about. Or more closely, they look like the ghosts in Season 2 of Dr. Who the episode "Army of Ghosts".
      We went back to our friend and told him, yeah it's haunted and then I woke up. So boring, yet true.
      Dr. Who is still plaguing my dreams. But now thanks to watching an old Bond movie last night and an exhausting walk, I have other strange things fighting it out in my head.

    7. Dr. Who, Barnabas Collins

      by , 08-24-2012 at 06:41 PM (redisreddish's mess of dreams is still messy)
      I'm in my house, along with a small crowd of people. They're all there because the doctor (11th doctor) is doing something. He's pacing back and forth and talking to himself. A bunch of girls keep trying to flirt with him, and he's getting visibly annoyed. He walks into the kitchen and comes back out with a Pop Tart, but after one bite he just looks at it strangely, hands it to me and continues pacing. All of the people clear out after a while, leaving just me, my dad, and the doctor. The doctor starts searching for something and my dad begins to talk to him. I can't remember any of what he said except the last part.

      "So, ah... You should take Taylor (that's me ) with you."

      The doctor drops whatever he was doing and spins to face my dad. "What!? I don't think you realize exactly what I do. I travel the universe. I cross time and space and different dimensions. Every day--EVERY DAY is dangerous, and anyone around me could die. Or worse. And you want me to take your daughter with me!?" Without waiting for a response, he steps over to where I'm sitting and leans down so we're face to face. "Do you want to come with me?" he asks quietly.

      "Yes," I answer immediately. Even though I'm excited beyond aything, the word comes out as barely more than a whisper.

      The doctor just stares for a few moments, his eyes drilling into mine like he' reading my life's story. Suddenly, he snaps back up to a standing position, looking like he's figured something out. "One year," he murmurs to himself, gazing off into space. Then his eyes find mine again. "One year, and I'll come back for you."

      "Okay," I nod, happy to wait any length of time for the chance to go with him.

      The doctor grins. "See you then."

      This dream was short. I was driving a van, but the brakes stopped working so I got out and started walking around the town I was in. I kept seeing the doctor from the corner of my eye. Every time I looked at him, he disappeared. I wondered if the year was up and it was time for me to go with him.

      I'm in some building when a wolf runs in. His fur is long, glossy, mixed black and brown. He looks at me, barks, turns in a circle, then waits, moving his front paws up and down impatiently. People are staring and both of us.

      "I'll follow you," I say to the wolf. Immediately he takes off through the door, and I run after him. We go down a winding road filled with random people. Every so often the wolf stops and picks out someone, and they join us. Eventually there's about ten of us standing in a circle. Then out of nowhere, Barnabas Collins (Johnny Depp) walks up and stands next to me. He places his hand on my shoulder and a warm feeling starts to spread through me. My eyes close, and I feel my body go limp. Barnabus catches me as I collapse... And then I'm asleep.

      It's the most beautiful sensation. Like pure happiness is flowing through me. It's warm, and soft, completely fills me on the inside and feels like being wrapped in a blanket of comfort and contentedness on the outside. Slowly, I wake up. (In the dream.) I'm lying in a large four-poster bed, on top of bright red sheets. The wonderful, fuzzy sensation starts to diminish in intensity, but I'm still extremely happy for no reason. I look over and see Barnabas standing at the side of the bed.

      "You do not have much left," he says. "If I take any more, you will die." I realized he's talking about my blood. I've just been attacked by a vampire... and I find myself not really caring. He didn't kill me, so it's all good. And the bed is so comfy... Barnabas starts talking again, and the dream ends.
    8. Trying to Fly, Weeping Angels

      by , 08-15-2012 at 06:44 PM (redisreddish's mess of dreams is still messy)
      This one was lucid, but I didn't accomplish anything. -_-

      I think it started with me and a group of people standing in a parking lot, and Optimus Prime appeared and told us he needed people to help him fight evil. He handed each of us a mask, and when we put our masks on they turned into a full Power Ranger uniform. I was green. Optimus told us all our names (Glitter, for me ) and informed everyone that there were aliens in a nearby city. We were supposed to fly there... But I couln't get off the ground. Of course. So I grabbed hold of Optimus when he took off and rode all the way to our destination.

      We landed in a mall. There were large dinasaur-humanoid creatures rampaging around. People were screaming and running everywhere, and the other Power Rangers quickly went to work beating them up. I, however, had no idea what to do. One of the aliens spotted me and started to charge. I ran, but he was catching up. I made a feeble attempt at flying and landed flat on my face. The alien actually stopped and laughed at me, along with most of the people who had seen my fail.

      I gave up on the alien fighting and headed into the main part of the mall. People pointed at me and whispered things along the lines of, "There's that Power Ranger who can't even fly. What a loser." I just tried to find an interesting store. My friend Wesley came in after a minute or two and started following me, and I lost lucidity while trying to lose him.


      Just a fragment. I was in some kind of house or half-outdoor setting. The whole place was overrun with weeping angels from Dr. Who and Inferi (basically the Harry Potter version of zombies). I had a sledgehammer and was trying to destroy the angels and keep away the Inferi at the same time. That was pretty much the entire dream. At one point towards the end, though, I think I was explaining what weeping angels were to someone. There happened to be several of them surrounding us at the time.

      "You can't blink," I told her. "Every time you blink they come closer. When they're far away they look like this--" I put my hands up in the weeping pose-- "But when get up to you they look like this." I tried to imitate the hands-clawed-teeth-bared stance. As I was doing that, I noticed an angel behind me doing the thing I was trying to imitate. I pushed it away and said, "Back off, I can do it myself."

      Spoiler for Don't blink:
    9. Ikenkokku Palace, Whale Support Group, In-Class RPG, Renovations

      by , 03-11-2012 at 05:21 PM
      #1 - Ikenkokku Palace [Non-Lucid]

      There were a couple different plots going on in this dream, but I only remember one of them. Though I do remember that C was in the other one.... I was in high school, and D and I were in some fight but I wasn't sure what about. He was being really mean though, and I spent the whole dream mad at him but also sad and confused. In the end I learned that he had messed up while playing some game called "Ikenkokku Palace" at my house and that made him mad, but he wasn't actually mad at me or anything and he was just kidding around. I felt so relieved and apologized for being so emotional. In the end it switched to me being on a computer and listening to some playlist that Erii made online and thinking that it was really cool. (I sure have been dreaming about Erii a lot. )

      #2 - Whale Support Group [Non-Lucid]

      I'm in some marine biology class and I join a small group of students starting a secret organization with some ridiculously long name that's some womens' whale support group, though guys can join too. (In fact one of the founders was a guy, and I pretty sure long name it had ended with "and we play with our penises". ) I'm pretty sure the stated purpose of the group was to support "women, African Americans, and whales." Eventually the group is revealed to the teacher as a way of taking her off guard because they thought she'd be against it, but she actually loved the idea and wanted to join. We were all happy, and I remember jotting down a sentence or two in a book about Dr. Who (which I don't even watch) thinking that I was going to write my own book, but I don't remember about what.... Class ended and I got up to walk out, but then I woke up.

      #3 - In-Class RPG [Non-Lucid]

      I remember forming a bond with some girl in a class and I felt like maybe there was something deeper there, but that part of the dream is very blurry. I went to my next class after that, and I'm taking classes with D and C (but C eventually turns into M) and we're playing some confusing role-playing game as an assignment and they're super into it. I don't really remember how the game works, but D is close to winning but then M activates some instant win thing no one knew about (not even him) and claims leadership of whatever their RP was about. I watch them go through some REALLY long and totally ridiculous in-character dialogue (they're so into it ) and it skips forward to us in a bedroom with D's little brother S also there. I say "You guys are INSANE. >w<" and grab some clothes I happen to have there - green velour pants, a white undershirt, and something else I can't quite remember - and start walking around the school which is gigantic. I'm looking for my dorm room and starting to feel really tripped out and scared for some reason until I wake up.... I walked into someone's room and there was some stoner guy on the bed who was clearly high, and I was embarrassed and apologized saying I was high too and just lost, and walked out. I heard him saying as I was walking through the halls that he was afraid I was some undercover FBI agent or something. >.>;;

      #4 - Renovations [Non-Lucid]

      I found some anime DVDs to watch in my room, and a garbage truck parked right out in front of my house as part of renovating it. (??) My dad was painting the outside wall of the house by the deck, and my mom was swimming in the pool. That's all there really was to that.
