      I first got the idea for a house made out of a living tree after learning about living bridges in India made of trees.

      Living Sculptures

      Banyan trees have roots that come down from the branches, and when they touch the ground, they form new trunks. My idea to do, in waking life, is to make a living house out of a banyan tree. A friend of mine who is an avid dreamer, gave me the idea to use egg shape forms to make the rooms. So, egg shapes of living wood are going to hang from the branches.

      Before we met, I had the idea to make this living house a kind of starting point for all my dreams. I have only dreamed of this tree once, here, but I do think about it a lot, which is a form of dream incubation, I guess.

      I am so happy that it appeared beneath the great tower. I actually did dream of a tower on the moon once here, but it was more of a communication, antenna type tower.

      After getting repeatedly harassed by Tooth, I also felt like we needed a great fortress on the moon.

      Cool!

      That could make one awesome treehouse. Can't wait to see it completed!

      09/28/09 Healing and Chicken-Wuss

      I fell asleep with my light/sound machine on. My first goal was once again to heal my friend Alicia. The images on the inside of my eyelids took form into Alicia's room…

      I headed over to Alicia so I could use my healing spells on her. I was about to start the first healing spell when I felt something strange. It felt like I was being watched. I stopped and looked around. The room was empty except for Alicia and me. I went over and peered out the window. I could not touch the blinds so I actually phased my face through the blinds. The front yard was bathed in moonlight. There was no one there. I turned around to head back to Alicia. There was a zombie in the room with me. It was disgusting. One eye was hanging out of its socket and flopping against the zombie's decaying face. Ooze was coming from the socket. The other eye was in place but it was dripping green ooze. The zombie was filthy and had numerous places on it where there were maggots visible squirming in the rotting flesh. The zombie was standing in a mound of mud with worms and other bugs squirming about. The smell was rancid. Like a mix of rotten eggs and decaying flesh. I looked at the floor where the mud was seeping into the white carpeting.

      Note: Alicia's mother gets upset if someone spills water on their new carpet… she would have a FIT about this one!

      The zombie opened its mouth and worms started crawling out.

      "Nice," I said, not impressed, "But you need more rot on the right side to balance out the missing eye on the left."

      The zombie was trying to talk now. It was really slurred with the worms coming out of its mouth at the same time. I couldn't make out a single word it said. It sounded like a gurgley snarl.

      "Don't talk with your mouth full of worms," I said, "It doesn't work."

      The zombie finally made himself understood. He seemed to be getting more frustrated. He was saying he is not a chicken-wuss. I told him if he wanted to fight again to wait outside. I am doing some healing. And then I would be glad to kick his ass again. The zombie got angry and threw a bunch of maggots, worms, and rot at me. I moved to the side and the goop splattered all over Alicia's wall. I repeated he should just wait outside while I healed my friend. He said something about a tower. I said I wasn't going to go to the tower. Just wait a bit. I went over to Alicia in her bed. I made a point to tune out Chicken-Wuss and focus on healing Alicia. I used the Voices song from Macross 7 a total of three times. Chicken-Wuss didn't interfere. I got up after I was done. A large slimy leech hit me on the back of my head. It latched onto my neck and started sucking. I reached back and ripped it off. I turned around and saw Chicken-Wuss looked very impatient. I told him we would take this outside. I was pondering what spell I should use on him this time. I phased through the window. Chicken-Wuss followed.

      We were outside now. Chicken-Wuss was growing to be really big. I thought that was like a re-run. He's done that before. I thought about it for a minute. The 50 foot Chicken-Wuss zombie was towering over me now. The monster turned into a wave of filth. A wall of maggots, worms, rot, and filth collapsed all around me. And with it came a rancid odor. I used Damage, Inc. by Metallica to create a wall of fire around me. I expanded the flames outward incinerating the sloppy mess as it went. Chicken-Wuss was now standing in front of me, back in his normal sized zombie form. He changed form. He looked like a zombie form of Goku from Dragonball Z now. He started powering up a kamekameha.

      "Goku…" I mocked, "Are you kidding me? Take the form of someone cool from Dragonball Z!" I focused on the song by Metallica called Of Wolf and Man. I transformed into Vegeta from Dragonball Z. Chicken-Wuss was about to release his kamekameha when I released a big final flash right in his face.

      "Ka… me… ka… me…" Chicken-Wuss started.

      "Final flash!" I interrupted. A massive blast of blue energy hit Chicken-Wuss in the face. It sent him flying down the street. He hit a house at the end of the street with a CRASH! I followed him down the street. The zombie form of Chicken-Wuss was lying in a pile of rubble smoking and groaning. I, still in the form of Vegeta, pulled a DBZ line. "Next time I want you to be more serious… or were you serious and this is all you've got?" Everything around me faded to black and I woke.

      Oh my God! That is effing hilarious! Why don't you come out of the Nightstalker closet, and we will stop calling you Chicken-Wuss, you disusting bastard! We know you are reading this. By the way, The Cusp said he's sorry about giving you a limp. You know, it's not very polite to interrupt someone when they are doing a healing, especially in such a disgusting manner.

      Interesting how I perceive him as sort of a skeleton with purple papery skin covering him.

      The Kamehameha deal is just a way for him to pull focus, since anything you focus on in a dream becomes more powerful in the eyes of the one perceiving it, but you probably already know that.

      That is sweet of you to do the healing on your friend. Keep kicking butt, and taking names.

      09/28/09 Assassin's Creed Shadow Realm

      I was in a strange place. I looked around. It was dark and dreary. It was really foggy. The setting reminded me of a scene from Silent Hill. It also looked a bit like an RPG town. It looked like someone had crossed an RPG with Silent Hill. It seemed really weird. I started wandering around. In spite of all of the obvious signs I didn't realize I was dreaming. I was wondering how to get out of the shadow realm. It was obvious that I was in the shadow realm somehow. I walked down the street. I saw movement in the shadows. I never got a really good look at what was hiding in the shadows. At least not until I was attacked. A creature came out of the shadows and attacked me. It was a mutant freak of the type that would normally be seen in a Silent Hill game. A female form with an arm taking the place of its left leg. It's head wasn't a head… it was a hand. There was a single gazing eyeball in the center of the palm of the hand. The eye was fixed on me. I did a double take at the creature but I called my sword at the same time. I intercepted the attacking creature with my sword and cut it through the middle. It bled heavily. Instead of blood it had small worms. The worms disappeared into the ground.

      I was being really dense about figuring out that I was dreaming. I continued down the street, watching the shadows closely to make sure another creature didn't sneak up on me. I came around a corner and found there were several figures in the mist. They all approached me at the same time. I now found myself facing down five Templars. I did a double take. Templars in Silent Hill? WTF? That was just too weird. I thought maybe I was dreaming. I tried to fly and succeeded.


      Note: It was about time I got lucid!

      The Templars were cursing at me. They were throwing balls of blackness at me. I dodged those and landed back in front of the Templars. I saw the Templars had black eyes. Shadow Templars. I used Battery by Metallica to hit my own sword with a bolt of lightning. It was sparking energetically. I attacked one of the Templars. Black armor formed where my sword was about to hit him. The armor blocked my sword. I hadn't been expecting that. The Templar laughed at me. He said I was in his territory now. He was still laughing at me when I used another song. I used the song Crush 'Em by Megadeth. The gravity force threw the Templar across the street and into one of the dilapidated buildings. He hit the wall with a CRASH. The building collapsed around him. The Templar started climbing out of the rubble. I used Battery to hit him with a bolt of lightning before he could get up. He was consumed by white lightning.

      While I had been focusing on the one Templar the others hadn't been ignoring me. Witchblade formed into a full armor to block their attacks as they came in with their swords. I now ducked out of the way of another attack. I moved in underneath the attack and ran my sword at the Templar's abdomen. It was blocked by a black armor of some kind. That was getting annoying. I used Crush 'Em again to send a wave of gravity to push the Templar up into the sky. While he was in the sky I hit him with a bolt of lightning. This time he was consumed by the white electricity. I turned around to face another Templar. I saw there were also strange creatures coming out of the mist. I wondered if the creatures would attack the Templars. I didn't know. There were a lot of them. I thought I could do better if I could get above everything. It wasn't just creatures coming from the mist. There were more Templars, too. They were all around me. Monsters and Templars. I did a spin attack like Link on the Legend of Zelda. I cut down a couple of the creatures that had gotten too close. I took to the sky. I heard the Templars behind me laughing. One of them said this was now my eternity.

      I flew for a short distance and I spotted someone in the middle of a group of creatures. I flew in closer. I recognized the person. It was Altaïr. He was killing the creatures. Cutting them down as fast as they could come at him. But they never seemed to stop. I used Battery and hit a number of them with bolts of lightning. Altaïr looked up and spotted me. I landed beside Altaïr. We fought off the some more attacking creatures. There seemed to be an endless number of them. And now the Templars were showing up, too. I got an idea. I used Battery to charge Altaïr's sword and told him I just needed a small amount of time to prepare a spell…

      "And suddenly the unreal silence is broken by a lament," I started the spell that goes along with the song Dark Power of the Abyss by Rhapsody, "A lament coming up from the deepest, darkest abyss…"

      Altaïr attacked one of the Templars and was blocked by a black armor. He spun around and came at the Templar from the other direction. This time he got through and the Templar was consumed with white lightning.

      "And from the seven gates of the dark fortress, the dead come back to face them… This is hell!" I continued.

      "Are you almost done with that?" Altaïr asked as he blocked and countered an attacking Templar only to be blocked with black armor.

      "Immortal fire, now rise, light my heart, light my way through the darkness, a guardian of space and time!" I finished. A wall of white fire rose around Altaïr and me and expanded outward. It was incinerating every Templar and mutant creature it touched. Altaïr was staring at that. I grabbed Altaïr's arm. "It's time to get out of here," I said. I focused on Through the Never by Metallica and on opening a portal to Altaïr's home. A portal opened and I pulled Altaïr through. It closed behind us.

      Altaïr and I were now in what looked like a normal RPG town… or one of the towns out of Assassin's Creed. There were several civilians standing around staring at us. Their jaws were on the ground. Altaïr was staring at me. He asked how I had done that. I wasn't sure how to answer his question. I saw everyone was still staring at us. It popped into my head that we should give them something to stare at. I saw a guard coming from off to the side. He was trying to ask one of a stunned woman what she was staring at. All she would do was point and mutter incoherently. I kissed Altaïr. The guard got through the staring people and saw us kissing. He rolled his eyes as he looked at us. "Hey, you two!" he said, "Take it somewhere private! You're putting on a show!"

      I looked over at the guard. I think I had a silly little smile on my face. He gave me a crooked smile in return and repeated me and my lover boy just needed to go somewhere private. I walked with Altaïr around a corner and into a side street that was deserted. Altaïr asked if I was going to tell him how I had done that. I didn't answer him… I kissed him again. I noticed how it seemed to feel so real. I could feel his lips. I could feel the heat of his breath. I couldn't get over how real it felt. I was still kissing Altaïr when I woke.

      09/29/09 Chicken-Wuss again?!

      I fell asleep with my light/sound machine on and focusing on healing my friend Alicia. I got to Alicia's room in a lucid dream state…

      I went over to Alicia sleeping in her bed. I used the song Voices from the Macross Plus soundtrack three times. Somewhere during the songs I lost my full lucidity and went semi-lucid…

      When I was done healing Alicia I got up to walk away from her and did a double take. I wasn't alone. There was a zombie from Resident Evil standing there looking at Alicia. I got between the zombie and Alicia. I told it to leave her alone. The zombie looked at me strangely. It was a partially decayed, ooze covered, maggot infested, worm covered, rotting corpse. I wrinkled my nose as I got a blast of stench. I told the zombie that decaying things aren't good for sick people, so he should leave. The zombie stood there looking at Alicia for a bit longer and then went through the window and was gone. I wondered what that had been about. I figured I would find out more about the zombie. I followed it through the window and outside…

      And onto the moon? I did a double take at being on the moon. I looked back to see if Alicia's house was still there. It was gone. I was on the moon now. The Resident Evil zombie was standing there facing the other direction. I asked the zombie what was going on. I asked the zombie if it had been looking for me for some reason. I asked it if it needed something. Maybe healing? Since I am a healer I would be glad to… The zombie interrupted me when it turned around suddenly and projectile vomited a stream of maggots, worms, mud, and rot in my direction. My Witchblade formed into a shield mounted on my arm. I deflected the stream of disgustingness. I looked around me at the puddles of filth I had deflected. "That was disgusting. Truly disgusting. Are you sick? Or are you just disgusting? If you're sick I can heal…"

      The zombie interrupted me again. It changed into a large black blob of ooze. I had a sense of déjà vu. I had seen this before. I had given this zombie a name. Chicken-Wuss. I had been calling this zombie Chicken-Wuss. I used a gravity attack from Crush 'Em to push Chicken-Wuss away.

      "What is the matter with you, Chicken-Wuss?" I asked the zombie blob as it turned back into a zombie, "What is it you're after, Chicken-Wuss? Why do you keep coming back when you just keep getting your ass kicked, Chicken-Wuss?"

      The zombie yelled / roared / snarled to stop calling it Chicken-Wuss. It was spitting maggots and other assorted filth as it tried to talk. I told him I will stop calling him Chicken-Wuss when he stops acting like a chicken-wuss. The first step towards that would be to take his normal form and actually communicate with me. The zombie apparently was not interested in conversation. Chicken-Wuss changed into a cloud of gas. It was the STINKIEST gas I have ever smelled. It smelled like a thousand cows ate a thousand barrels of beans and then all farted at the same time while standing on top of a landfill full of rotting corpses drenched in sewer water. I thought I might puke. I summoned up a gas mask. That filtered the stink out. The gaseous Chicken-Wuss solidified into slime that dripped all over me. I focused on powering up as the characters in Dragonball Z do. A field of energy formed around me and vaporized the slime off. The zombie appeared in front of me again. I continued questioning the zombie. I asked him why he had been watching me heal Alicia. I asked if he needs healing. Chicken-Wuss exploded into a wave of gore. My Witchblade armor kept the filth off of me. I was getting tired of trying to get information out of Chicken-Wuss. I formed my Witchblade sword and then charged it up with lightning. Before the zombie had even fully reformed I had sliced it right through the middle. The zombie was consumed by white lightning.

      "And don't come back!" I called out. I was thinking I might head to the tower since I was already on the moon but everything around me faded to black and I woke.

      09/29/09 Parasite Chicken-Wuss

      I was on the moon. I wasn't lucid. I looked around. I saw I wasn't alone there. Spike was there with me. I thought that was strange that I would find a vampire on the moon. I would have expected a werewolf instead of a vampire. I walked over towards Spike. He's hot. I kissed Spike. Spike said I was dreaming. I said I already knew he was a dream. He chuckled and said no, this is literally a dream. He said to wake up and become lucid. I looked into Spike's eyes and realized I was dreaming…

      Spike and I were on the moon. Nothing else seemed to be going on. I spotted a woman. She saw us and came over. She asked if we had seen Nomad. I said no. I said he had probably been delayed by Chicken-Wuss. I said Chicken-Wuss is a glutton for punishment. It seems he just can't get his ass kicked enough. I said Nomad would make quick work of Chicken-Wuss and he should be here soon. As if on cue a portal opened and Nomad came through. He wasn't alone. He was being followed by three strange creatures. One looked like a giant bird thing. A second one looked like a dinosaur of some kind. The third one looked like a giant squid. Nomad landed near us. I asked him who his friends were. He said they weren't friends. I said I hadn't figured they were… I said I had the dibs on the flying type! I was thinking about pokémon battles and was certain flying type would be weak against lightning. I jumped into the air and took flight. I used the song Battery by Metallica to summon a bolt of lightning on the bird creature. The lightning hit the bird right in the face. The bird squawked and fell to the ground. It immediately righted itself and darted at me. I blocked the bird's beak with my Witchblade armor. I formed it into a sword and charged the sword with electricity. I attacked the bird again. This time I flew up on top of the creature and drove my sword directly into its head. I pulled the sword out of the bird's head and sliced through its neck to make sure the job was finished. My sword went about half way through the bird's neck. Spike was on the other side of the bird, also with a sword. He sliced the bird's neck the rest of the way through, effectively decapitating it. The bird's head fell to the ground and the bird fell over dead.

      A foul odor reached my nose. I wondered if the bird thing had a foul odor when dead. I was thinking there seem to be a lot more instances where I would rather forgo dream smelling than instances where I enjoy it. I held my nose. That did no good. I turned just in time to see a huge Nomad slice what appeared to be a puking Chicken-Wuss in half once and then again. Chicken-Wuss exploded in a rain of goop. Nomad landed on the ground and made a small crater. I went over to where he was. His energy was wrong. I had the idea his energy was unstable. I asked if he was ok. He seemed to be in a trance. He finally said Chicken-Wuss had followed him. He looked really pissed. I figured he was just frustrated with Chicken-Wuss. I thought maybe we could get his mind off of that. I asked if he wanted to see his new space ship at the tower. He perked up immediately and said yes.

      We teleported to the landing bay. There was a sleek silver ship there next to my Fire Valkyrie. An entry melted into the side as if the silver was fluid. I smelled a foul odor. It was coming from Nomad. I was about to ask if he had cut one when I looked and saw Nomad was covered with slime. Spike was also covered with slime. We had all been slimed. I used a wave of energy to clear the slime off of us. I thought that must have happened when Chicken-Wuss exploded. Now we went into Nomad's new ship. The entrance melted closed behind us. The interior looked like the ship on Flight of the Navigator. Nomad took the controls and we flew out of the landing bay at high speeds. We were zipping around on the moon making all sorts of cool maneuvers. I was thinking it was more fun than any rollercoaster. I happened to look at Nomad. He was wounded. There was a cut on his arm that was maggot infested. I asked Nomad what had happened. He said he hadn't seen that injury. I focused on healing it. Nomad responded by changing form. He transformed into a giant minotaur. His new form ripped right through the hull of his new space ship. I could tell he hadn't done that deliberately. I used Of Wolf and Man by Metallica, directing the spell at him to transform him back to his normal form. I asked what was wrong. He said he couldn't control it. The ship started repairing itself and was soon back in one piece.

      The voice of the ship spoke. It told Nomad to go into a scanning pod. He did and it began scanning him. His energy was definitely unstable. There was a strange growth where it shouldn't have been. The computer highlighted that. Nomad asked what it was. The computer said it was a parasite that feeds on negative energy. It said it could remove it but Nomad would have to be careful or it could come back. Stay calm for a while and it won't return. A small laser focused on the growth and burned it away. I asked Nomad how he felt. He took out a plant. I didn't recognize the plant. He said it was for healing. He set it down. I looked at the plant for a bit. Nomad said he felt better. He said he wanted to find more dream warriors. I was losing the dream. I said I would be back if I could, but now I was about to wake up. Everything around me faded to black as I woke.

      09/29/09 Dream Warriors

      I was in space in my Fire Valkyrie. I was flying next to a silver ship of some kind. It looked like the ship off of Flight of the Navigator. I did a double take at seeing that. I flew in closer to the ship. They were making contact. My communication screen showed Nomad. He said he had been wondering if I would be back. Spike was behind him. Spike said to make sure the second seat was open… he was coming over. I said fine. Spike appeared in the seat behind me in my Fire Valkyrie. He leaned over the seat and kissed me on my cheek. I asked Spike where we were going. Spike said Q had located a colony of dream warriors here. He said we were going to check it out. That triggered me to set my sound system to play Dream Warriors by Dokken. It just seemed appropriate.

      Note: Somewhere my lucidity slipped to semi-lucid...

      We soon arrived at the outpost of the dream warriors. They had an amazing city set up. The city looked like something that would be seen in a dream. We flew to a small area where we were able to land our ships. Spike and I got out and I saw Nomad and Selene get out of the other ship. A strange man came over to us. He was tall and slender, not human. He said he had been told we were interested in dream warriors. He showed us to a strange silver building. We went in through the door. I saw him saying something to Nomad but I didn't hear what.

      The room in the building was round. There was a chair in the center of the room. There were some people sitting around the edge of the room. I noticed the individual at the center chair looked like Yoda from Star Wars. I did a double take. I had not figured Yoda to be a dream warrior. Yoda called Nomad forward. They were talking for a bit and then Nomad left. Yoda turned his attention to me. I went over to him. He said here I would learn the ways of the dream warrior. He looked at me strangely and told me to gaze into a bowl he had. I looked in. There were images flowing around. It looked like a pensive from the Harry Potter books. I saw some images of me briefly and then it went hazy. Yoda looked a bit puzzled. He looked at me again. He said there was clearly more to me than the bowl was ready to show. He said all would be revealed in time. Spike came up next. It looked like Spike had to work hard not to cop a serious attitude with Yoda. Yoda seemed to ignore that. They spoke momentarily and then Yoda spoke with Selene. Yoda said now it was time to see what we have.

      The next instant the four of us were in an arena. There was a large rock golem. Nomad immediately transformed into a large minotaur and charged it. He ran smack into it with a CRASH! It looked painful… for Nomad. He fell to the ground and I could practically imagine stars and birds circling his head as in a cartoon. I told him to try attacking the enemy with blunt weapons other than his own head. Witchblade formed into a large mace. Spike pounded the ground and created a shockwave worthy of the Hulk. Nomad hit the golem's leg with a hammer. The golem tried to crush me under one of its hands. I dodged and hit the hand with my mace. Selene was halfway up the creature. When she got to the top she ran a sword into one of its eyes. Spike sent another shockwave and the creature collapsed into dust. The scene around me changed…

      I was in a graveyard now. I wondered where everyone else had gone. The ground was shaking. A large crack opened in the ground and a large hand reached out. Fire was erupting from the crack. I wondered what was happening. A large ugly thing came out. It's face looked a bit like Freddy Krueger. It was obviously a dream demon. Aside from its face it didn't look like Freddy. It looked like a giant insect. A ten foot cockroach with Freddy Krueger's face. I formed Witchblade into a sword and went at the dream demon. I sliced it right through the middle. It split in two… and then it formed two giant cockroaches. Both of them had Freddy's face and were laughing. They both grew to ten feet in height. Both of them spoke at once. They said they could not be killed. Strike them down again and there would just be more of them. I used Damage, Inc. to throw fireballs at one of the insects. It blasted apart… into 5 pieces… and formed 5 more giant cockroaches. Ok… this was getting a bit out of hand. I needed to drain its power. It was a dream demon… so I needed to be a dream warrior. I focused on the song Dream Warriors by Dokken. I could hear the song playing. As the song was playing the giant cockroaches didn't seem to like it. They were covering their Freddy Krueger ears with their insect legs. The giant insects began to shrink down. I focused the song on draining them even further. Finally I was facing six cockroach sized dream demons. I stepped on one of them and it made a satisfying crunch. And this time it didn't reform. The other cockroaches ran for cover. I threw a small fireball at each one and it was incinerated before it could reach cover. None of them reformed.

      Then I was back in the arena with Yoda. Yoda looked at me closely. He said I had obviously done this before. He asked why I was really here. I said I was just there to fight dream demons. He eyed me closely. He said he could see that was the truth, but it was clearly not all of the truth. He asked what I saw him as. I said Yoda from Star Wars. The Jedi master. He nodded thoughtfully. I asked if that was his true form. He said he has no true form. Everyone perceives him differently. I didn't question him further.

      Nomad was saying he wanted to show us his tree house. I said ok. I opened a portal to get back. Nomad asked what about our ships. I said Q would bring them back. I didn't know if I could hold the dream long enough to get back to the moon by space ship. On the other side of my portal we were in a strange room. There were lots of plants there. I didn't recognize them. Nomad said it was his greenhouse. We teleported again. Now we were in a large room. It was a comfortable looking room. I said it was nice in there. Nomad said he wanted a joint. I asked what is the point of smoking a joint in a dream. I said I had to go wake up. He said goodbye. I saw Selene snuggle up next to Nomad just before I woke.

      Yes! This is absolutely incredible!!!

      I know we are doing this, but I am having a hard time believing we are doing this.

      I have to hear that dream warrior song now!!

      Last night was the most amazing dream of my life, but also very sobering.

      09/30/09 Cat Interruption

      I fell asleep to go into a WILD using my light/sound machine and isotronic sound tones. BTW, these tones do seem to be quite relaxing to me, although I don't think I can say they work any better than relaxing music along with my light/sound machine. It will take some more experimentation to better compare them…

      I focused on going to the moon. I remembered I had made plans to meet Nomad and he said he would help me heal my friend Alicia. I am continuing my week of healing sessions to help her get rid of a chronic illness she has been fighting with for a while. I found myself standing on the moon. I looked around for Nomad. I spotted a couple of people. I started approaching them. Nomad was having a discussion with Selene. I recognized the two of them. Nomad looked over at me and motioned me over. I approached them. I asked Nomad if he was ready. I said I could take him to my friend's house so we could use healing energy on her. Nomad said he was ready. I was about to open a portal when I heard a sound from Nomad. I turned towards Nomad. I asked what he had said. He said he hadn't said anything. As I was about to turn away, however, he meowed angrily. I looked back at him.

      "Did you just 'meow' at me?" I asked him.

      "Uh…" Nomad seemed perplexed, "No…" And then he hissed. A very good imitation of a cat's hiss. The dream slipped away at this point as I was awakened by two of my cats getting into a fight.

      09/30/09 Templar Interruption

      I focused on getting to the moon. The images on the inside of my eyelids took form and then I was on the moon. I looked around to see if I could find Nomad.

      I didn't see Nomad. I did see I wasn't alone. There was a zombie there. My first thought was that it was Chicken-Wuss… no… I'd said I was going to stop calling him that and just go with Tooth, the name he had chosen in a different dream, until I got an actual name. He was as disgusting as ever. Dripping ooze, maggots, rot, decay… the works. I walked towards him without readying any weapon. I didn't want it to look like an attack. I asked him what had brought him here. He threw a blob of disgusting at me. I deflected it with Witchblade. I told him that no, this time things weren't going to deteriorate into a mindless brawl. Enough of this fighting when I didn't even know why we were fighting.

      I thought I might try to get things on a more positive note. I told him I was sorry I had started calling him Chicken-Wuss… that was really quite immature of me. But sometimes I can be a bit immature… and sometimes it goes too far. I told him the name calling would stop, or at least it would for my part. I said I would like to have a real name to call him by since I didn't figure his real name was Tooth, either. He didn't answer me. He looked rather comical staring at me with one oozing eye and one eye lolling against his cheek. I didn't let myself laugh. He looked a bit confused. I saw his mouth move and I wondered if he was going to projectile vomit on me again. I said I had seen him watching me heal Alicia. I asked if he needed healing. I said if he was in need of some kind of healing I would do it. In this place I can heal the body and the soul. He looked like he might say something and then he suddenly got pissed for no apparent reason. Now he did projectile vomit at me. I jumped into the air and avoided the stream of puke. I flipped over him and landed right behind him. Without thinking what I was doing I grabbed both of his arms and held them behind him. My stomach churned when I realized how closely I was holding him. But I didn't let go.

      "I don't want to fight you," I said, "I just want to find out what you need. Why you keep coming back. You wouldn't keep coming back if you didn't need something. I'm going to let go of you… don't attack me again." I released his arms. He turned around to face me. The anger was gone from his face for now. It was like he had a split personality. I was just starting to ponder that idea when he was attacked from behind. A black sword penetrated through his lower back and came out his abdomen. The sword then cut upward, slicing him almost completely in half. I was stunned by the sudden violence. Tooth collapsed to the ground and transformed into a swarm of worms that disappeared in to the ground.


      I was sooooo pissed I went to semi-lucid...

      I was pissed now. I looked up at the person who had attacked Tooth from behind… right as I was trying to get a dialogue going. I did a double take as I saw a Templar standing there. WTF? I told him to get his f**king ass back where he belonged. He laughed.

      "Oh, was that your friend?" he mockingly asked, "I had a little accident with my sword…"

      "There's about to be another accident," I said, "involving your face… and a comet…" I wondered if I could summon a comet to swing by and slam the Templar in the face. Before I could consider how to do that we got into a sword fight. I charged my sword with white lightning. Witchblade armor blocked all of his attacks. But some strange black armor blocked all of my attacks. We seemed to be getting nowhere. I was inspired to use a different song. I focused on the song Enter Sandman by Metallica. The part where the chorus says, "Exit light, enter night…" A spiral of white light radiated up and around the Templar. At the same time a spiral of black 'light' spiraled down around the Templar. When the two energies mixed there was a large explosion. I saw the black armor on the Templar shatter and he was consumed by the white energy. Now I was alone on the moon again. I wondered where Tooth had gone. I was going to look for him but instead I woke.

      I heard the quote on my current obsession, Assassin's Creed, although I think it was used by some historical individual... I suck at history...

      It's Nietzsche. I wonder what those Templars will look like with my perception. Crazy that it attacked Tooth.

      Cool 09/30/09 Healing Tooth

      09/30/09 Wednesday

      I was on the moon. I wasn't lucid. I looked around to see where I was. It didn't seem at all odd for me to be on the moon. I started walking on the moon. I wondered when the Earth would rise. I wanted to see the full Earth in the sky. I hadn't walked far before I heard something odd. I turned and looked behind me. I was being dive bombed by a giant bird! A giant bird on the moon?! I threw myself to the ground to avoid the diving bird. It swooped over me and I felt the wind as it passed. Wind on the moon?! That didn't seem right, either. I got up after the bird passed… and I was almost plowed down by a charging dinosaur. WTF? I watched the dinosaur after it passed me. A man was coming now. It was Spike!

      "Snap out of it, luv!" he yelled as he ran past, "You're dreaming!"


      Spike jumped up and landed on the back of the rampaging dinosaur. I saw a woman was in the sky and she came down on the dinosaur's head. I realized the woman was Selene. I saw the giant bird was coming back. It was a flying type. I should use electricity to attack it. I used Battery by Metallica to summon a bolt of lightning to hit the bird directly in the head. The bird did a face plant into the moon dust. Spike landed on the bird's back and buried a sword in its head. I saw Selene drive a sword through the eye of the dinosaur. Turning around I saw Nomad standing next to what could only be described as a pile of calamari.

      Something was descending from above. I looked up and saw there was a person in the air. My mind immediately told me it was Tooth. He was huge. Nomad drew his sword and prepared to attack. Spike was standing next to me watching. Selene was next to Nomad. I wondered what was going to happen now. I remembered wanting to try healing Tooth. I was thinking about what healing spell might work best. Tooth saw Nomad's sword and stopped in mid air, hovering. He looked over in my direction. He said I'd said I would help him… heal him… he said he was sick and couldn't control it. I thought this might just work even easier than I had thought. I had a brief thought of intruding Templars… I pushed that thought out of my mind. All I needed was to inadvertently summon Templars to join us! He shrunk to a normal size and stood in front of me. I looked at the filth and decay that was still oozing off of him. He still looked more like a zombie than a person. But that could just be on the surface…

      I focused on the song Touch My Heart, it is off of the soundtrack to the anime series Devil Hunter Yohko. The song played through. Golden energy seemed to be penetrating through Tooth. It looked like it was dragging something out of him… it was separating him into two individuals. The separation process looked difficult and unpleasant. I switched my tactics. I switched to the song Come Out and Play by the Offspring, focusing on the lines "Gotta keep 'em separated" and "come out and play" to split the second individual away from Tooth. Something hideous was being pulled out. It latched on to Tooth with tentacles of some kind. It wasn't going to let go. Spike charged in and pulled Tooth out of the creature's grasp. The both of them fell to the ground about ten feet beyond the creature. The creature was taking a form recognizable to me now. It looked like Freddy Krueger. If I was seeing it as Freddy that probably meant it was a dream demon. I saw the others were attacking the dream demon. Instead of going in as well I used the song Dream Warriors by Dokken to drain the dream demon's strength. Nomad was grappling with the dream demon. Selene ran her sword right through its side, right through the chest area. Spike grabbed onto the dream demon and sucked its energy in. The dream demon didn't last long. It was soon nothing more than a glowing vapor which Spike absorbed.

      I went over to Tooth. He was sitting on the ground now. He looked a bit disoriented. There were still things growing off of him. Maggot infested wounds. Rot and dirt. But it wasn't nearly as bad as before. "You had a dream demon," I told him, "and you might have another… or something else. I don't think dream demons usually partner up. Let's go somewhere safe so we can do some more healing."

      Nomad suggested we go to the tower. I agreed and we teleported to the tower. We were in a room that looked like sick bay on Star Trek. I told Tooth to lie down on one of the examination beds. He did that. The computer scanned him. It then spoke. It said it had detected an unknown parasitic presence. It said the presence was energy based and could not be cured by medical means. Nomad now suggested we take Tooth to the healing glen. He opened a portal and we all went through.


      Note: From past dreams I read in Nomad's DJ I know I have been to this glen before, but this is the first time I remember being there. It was the most beautiful forest glen I have ever seen. I was so taken in by its beauty that I lost my lucidity…

      We were all in the beautiful glen. Nomad, Selene, Spike, Tooth, and me. I was looking around at the beautiful scenery when Tooth began having a fit. A convulsion of some kind. There were tendrils of golden energy extending from the trees, flowers, insects… from every part of the glen… and probing into Tooth. I wondered what they were doing to him. I instinctively knew they meant no harm. That was healing energy. This was a place of healing. But that didn't change the fact Tooth was in a serious convulsion. He called out for help. I know nothing of how to handle convulsions except to keep the person from hurting themselves. Selene had already grabbed one of Tooth's arms. I grabbed the other, and Spike sat on his legs to pin them down. As Tooth had the biggest convulsion of them all a form actually came up and out of him. It looked like Freddy Krueger. A dream demon? Somehow it seemed like a bad rerun. The dream demon glared at Spike and said he was a pathetic excuse for a… BLAM! His head exploded. I saw Nomad behind Selene with a large double-barreled shotgun that was still smoking at the barrels. The dream demon turned to energy which Spike absorbed. I couldn't help but laugh at that. A pathetic excuse for a what? He hadn't even finished his insult before he was dead! A pathetic excuse for a dream demon…

      I looked back at Tooth. He tried to get up. He couldn't do it. I told him to rest. He'd had TWO dream demons inside him… not a common thing. Dream demons don't usually get along well enough to team up… I noticed he looked a lot better now. He still had a couple wounds that were maggot infested, but they appeared minor. I could see his true form now. He looked like a child. I am not very good at guessing ages, but my guess was around 12. He looked so pale. I heard something coming. I looked up. I saw a large something emerge into the glen. It looked like a rock golem, but it was made out of beautiful crystal instead of stone. It was being very careful of the vegetation. It had a pleasant look on its face. A warm and caring look I would not have thought a golem was capable of. He leaned over and gently scooped Tooth into his arms like he was carrying his own child. He said he would take care of the child. He disappeared back into the foliage and was gone. Everything around me faded to black as I woke.

      09/30/09 Healing Alicia

      09/30/09 Wednesday

      I woke up from the previous dream and went right back to sleep focusing on Alicia. I had the idea that if I didn't hurry the night would be over before I could complete my healing session on Alicia. I didn't make note of the time when I woke up, so I don't know how valid this concern was… I tried for a WILD but I got to the moon in a semi-lucid state.

      I was on the moon. I did a double take. I hadn't figured on coming to the moon. I wondered why I was there. I looked around and I spotted Nomad. Spike and Selene were with him. I pulled an internal Homer Simpson (D'Oh!) as I consciously remembered I was going to take Nomad with me this time. At least my subconscious had remembered! I asked if Nomad was ready to go. He said yes. I opened a portal focusing on getting to Alicia's room. For an instant I had the crazy idea that Nomad was going to say 'meow' like a cat… I looked at Nomad. I couldn't think why I would expect him to do an imitation of a cat. The four of us went through the portal.

      On the other side we were in Alicia's room. It was dark. Alicia was asleep in her bed. I told Nomad I have been trying to help her fight off a chronic illness that seems to be centered in her digestive system somewhere… but the doctors have yet to get a fix on what the problem is. I said I would do my healing spell again, and any healing he could add would be helpful. I focused on the song Voices from the Macross Plus soundtrack. Nomad started playing a strange instrument that I didn't recognize at the time (it was a didjeridoo, a wood wind instrument originating in Australia). He was playing it in harmony with my song. It sounded really good together. Healing energy flowed around and through Alicia. A couple of different colors of healing energy intertwined with each other to make beautiful patterns as the light flowed through her, washing the illness out with it. I used my song a couple of times and Nomad played along with me. After the song was finished for the second time I told Nomad that should do it for now. I thanked him for helping.

      I got a thought. I asked if anyone else was curious how Tooth was doing. Nomad was. I opened a portal to the healing glen where the crystal golem had been. We all went through it. Not far from the glen was a large cave. The interior of the cave was mostly stone but it was dotted with beautiful crystals in it. I admired the crystals for a bit before I noticed the crystal golem. He was in the back of the cave with a child… Tooth I assumed. Although I have come to know Tooth as looking like a zombie. That child looked nothing like a zombie. The child was drawing on the wall with something. The kid looked up at us when we entered. He smiled.

      "He's teaching me lots of cool things," the boy said. He looked over at me. "You said you wanted to know my real name. It's Joseph."

      "Like my pet," Nomad said, "His name is Joe." As if on cue a big black dog came bounding into the cave and went over to Joseph. The dog licked the boy on the face and the boy laughed. I took a liking to the dog immediately. I went over and pet the dog. He wagged his tail in response. I saw Q near the entrance to the cave. I went over to him and asked if he thought Joseph would be ok. He said it is all making sense now…


      Q Explains Tooth / Joseph: Q said it looks like Joseph has a natural ability to travel. So he started doing it, exploring the ability. Unfortunately there are evil forces out there who will try to prey on anyone they perceive as vulnerable. A couple of dream demons got hold of Joseph and quickly made their home there. Of course this enhanced his ability to travel to other people's dreams. Unfortunately, since the dream demons are evil and have a lot of negative energy (hate, rage, anger, pain, etc.) they infected Joseph with their energy. Q said it looks like Joseph is really a decent kid, but no one would be nice to be around with all of that negative energy in them! He said now that the dream demons were gone his new friend was telling him ways to defend against dream demons. Q said the kid is a fast learner. He smiled and disappeared.

      I remembered at the last minute that Nomad had wanted to talk to Q. Too late. Everything around me faded to black as I woke.

      Wow... serious chills... I am crying because I realize the responsibility I have. I feel foolish for thinking that I could do anything I want in shared dreams. Of course not. If it's a shared dream, at least the other person is real. I feel like I was that kid in the Wargames movie, not even knowing that anything I was doing was real. This is not a game. It's a very intense feeling. I am glad we were able to help Joseph. Realizing how the rage parasite infected me from going into a dream in a dark mood made me see that I could've easily become like him, and if I learned how to dream travel as a kid, I am sure that's exactly what would've happened to me. I jeopardized the safety of us twice by my experiment with Selene (even though my gut instinct told me it wasn't true), and by allowing rage to infest me. I appreciate your kind and forgiving spirit, which only humbles me even further.

      The Dreamworld is amazing and beautiful, and I love it, but now I take dreaming seriously. It's kind of like learning to bodysurf.... At first it's frustrating, until you learn how to catch waves with just your body (which is something I still hear people insist is impossible, though I just did it all afternoon!). Then, it's exhilarating. You seek bigger and stronger waves. Then, it's humbling. The ocean kicks your ass, and you feel like a fool for thinking you're a badass. After that, you have more respect for the ocean, and your love grows deeper.

      The dream world is like the ocean to me. Beautiful, mysterious, magical, dangerous, and deep... holding many secrets.

      I am so glad we met, Raven Knight. These journeys into the Dreamworld have been the most amazing, magical experiences of my life.

      raven, i love your healing dreams. i recently experimented with using sound to heal/commune with an animal in a dream. i also think it's awesome how you've got Q as a mentor! haha!

      i like how the past few of your dreams have unfolded. one thing i learned from tibetan dream yoga is that you always want to change things toward the positive. i'm wondering how i might have to use psychic self defense when i get into some more advanced situations like you're in. really interesting!

      10/01/09 Parasites and Negative Energy

      I fell asleep with my light/sound machine. I focused on doing a WILD to the moon so I could pick up Nomad before going to heal Alicia. I found myself on the moon. I looked around to see if I could find Nomad. I didn't see him at first. I was thinking he might not be asleep yet. I then kicked myself and said it had never mattered before… why would it matter now? I started looking for Nomad. I finally saw him come out of a portal. A giant squid, a giant bird, and a dinosaur followed him out. I pointed at the creatures. I said he had brought some friends. He said he was getting sick of those clowns. He transformed into a giant minotaur with a huge sword and sliced them up rather quickly. It was just a chore that needed to be done. He seemed rather bored by the activity. He transformed back to his normal form and waited in front of me.

      "My friend first?" I asked. He agreed so I opened a portal to Alicia's room. Alicia was on the bed. I went over to her. I started using Voices from the Macross Plus soundtrack. I noticed that Nomad didn't join in. I was too focused on the song to think about that. I didn't sense any danger. I thought maybe he had just awakened. I didn't think he was in any kind of danger. I continued my song. I heard Nomad saying my name behind me. Why was he interrupting my song? I shot him a dirty look for interrupting my song. He was motioning to me. He looked concerned about something. I went over to him. He went through the window and into the yard. He pointed at my back. I reached back and groped. I found something. It felt like a giant cockroach. Gross! I pulled it off of my back and threw it on the ground. It tried to scurry away but Nomad stabbed it. I wondered what the f**k that had been. I used a brief healing spell to bathe both Nomad and me in healing energy. I figured it couldn't hurt. Nomad still had some injuries. I couldn't tell if I did. Nomad said we should go to the tower. I said ok. I opened a portal to get through.


      Note: I'm not sure when, but somewhere in here I slipped to semi-lucidity...

      On the other side we were in a Star Trek style sick bay. The computer scanned both of us. A droid (like in Star Wars, R2D2) gave Nomad a red potion. He drank it. I wondered what it was. The droid led Nomad and Selene from the room. Spike was beside me. He said he liked this setup. He said he was sure getting to see a lot more of me! He smiled. The droid examining me said I didn't have a parasite, but I do have a problem with negative energy.

      "No shit, Sherlock," I responded to the droid.

      Spike told me to be nice. The droid indicated I should go to a different room for cleansing of the negative energy. Spike and I followed the droid into another room where there was a shower. Instead of water, however, I was bathed in blue and white energy. It felt wonderful. It was sooooo relaxing. I was relaxed into a state of complete non-lucidity. I was bathing in the energy. Shortly after I lost lucidity I woke up.

      10/01/09 Outer Realms Adventure

      I was in a strange place. I looked around to see where I was. I wasn't lucid. I saw I was in a forest of some kind. It was a rather dark forest. I wasn't alone there. There were four horses there. Three of the horses had riders. I recognized the riders. Nomad was on a black stallion. Selene was on a flame red stallion. Adult Link (From Legend of Zelda) was on a brown mare. There was a white mare with flam red mane and tail standing next to me. She nuzzled me affectionately. Q appeared amidst us. He looked at me and told me I was dreaming. I tried to fly and found I could do it. I landed beside my horse.

      Note: Sometimes Spike will take an alternative form. Tonight he looked like adult Link from Legend of Zelda. He looked like Link does in Twilight Princess.

      Q snapped his fingers. We all now looked like elves. Link didn't change at all. Q handed Nomad a staff with a glowing crystal on it. He said to deliver that to the mountain king. A simple straight forward quest for now. He added that we weren't the only ones who wanted that gem, though. He disappeared. I climbed onto my horse. We started heading in the direction Q had indicated. Nomad was looking at his staff. He said something about Gandalf. I said he was an elf… Gandalf is not an elf. I heard something behind us. There were enemies coming. Selene started firing arrows into the trees. I didn't see the enemies yet. We were in a closed in area so we rode farther along the path until it opened up to a point where there would be room to fight. The enemies exploded into the clearing behind us. They were all on horseback. I did a double take at them. Templars?! WTF? I heard Q talking to me telepathically. He said not to worry, they weren't shadow Templars. Just DCs in the training area. Energy came from Nomad's staff and knocked a number of Templars off of their horses. Some of the Templars went after Nomad and Selene. Somehow Link and I got separated off from them… and a bunch of Templars followed us.

      Link was riding next to me as we led the Templars off to the side. He asked me if I had decided to bring my own enemies today. We came to a stop and turned to face the enemies. Link used his sword to create a wave of force. That wave knocked all of the Templars off of their horses. The horses freaked out and fled. A couple of Templars got trampled in the process. Link jumped off of his horse and into the middle of a group of Templars where he did a spin attack. He cut down four Templars with that move and made several others back away from him. I jumped off of my horse and got into a sword fight with a couple other Templars. My Witchblade armor blocked any attacks coming at me and I quickly returned attacks and cut down Templars. I pulled my sword out of a dying Templar just in time to see Link dispatch one other Templar. All of the Templars were now gone. Some of their horses could be seen grazing on the grass.

      Link and I met up with Nomad and Selene. We were all back on our horses. We headed farther up the mountain. I noticed Nomad's horse no longer had a rider. I did a double take. I thought maybe he had woken up. His horse was still following us. We were almost to the top of the mountain. There was a castle at the top of the mountain. The castle of the mountain king. I saw Nomad was back. I thought the castle actually looked kind of creepy. It was dark and had a lot of bats flying around it. I wondered what kind of person this mountain king was. I wondered if we should give this mountain king that staff. I thought that might be bad. Maybe this quest wasn't quite as straight forward as Q had implied. A little plot twist. Nomad was staring at the castle. He disappeared again. I wondered where he had gone this time. The dream was slipping. I told Link I was leaving. He said he would see me back home then. He leaned over from his horse and kissed me. Everything faded to black as I woke.

      10/02/09 Healing Success

      I fell asleep using my light/sound machine and went to the moon in a WILD. I was able to meet up with Nomad there and we went to Alicia's. The healing session went well this time. There weren't any interruptions by any strange parasites and since Tooth has been cured and is now known as Joseph he didn't interfere, either. The energy from the healing session left me feeling really at peace.

      10/02/09 Race for the Trophy

      I was in a strange place. I looked around to see where I was. I didn't recognize the location. It was a dark passage that looked like a hallway in an abandoned building. I walked for a while. I was not even sure how I had gotten there. There was dim light coming from a few overhead lights, but most of those were dark. I could hear strange noises off to the side. I couldn't identify them but I found them to be creepy. I continued down the hall. I reached the end of the hall. There were three doors there. They looked like normal office doors, but in the dim light they seemed ominous. I tried the one at the end… locked. The one to my right was also locked. I tried the one to my left and found it was open. I went through it and into…

      A computer control center. The walls were lined with very sophisticated looking computer equipment. Q was in the room. He said he was glad to see I had arrived. He said I should do a reality check… I am dreaming. I wasn't sure what to do for a reality check since I was inside. Trying to fly wouldn't work. I tried to levitate. I floated off of the ground. I landed again, now I was lucid.


      Q went over to one of the computer consoles. He said this was the Outer Realms training area. He said everyone else was also starting in one of these rooms. He said I have a teammate; Link. He said our opponents were Nomad and Selene. He said the goal would be in the center of the maze. He said it is basically a competition to get there first. He said the halls are filled with zombies. He said whichever team got both members to the goal first would be the winner. He reminded me it is a training mission, so there is no real reason not to kill each other. I asked him where Link was. He said in another room like the one we were in. He said finding our partner should be the first task. He said he had already talked to the others so it was time to start. He said if I forgot anything Link would surely remind me. He said he had made sure Selene would remind Nomad if he forgot something. He said the competition would begin… now! With that he disappeared.

      I looked at the computers around the room. None of them looked useful. It looked like they were all for show. I checked a couple of them. The data they were displaying didn't mean anything to me. I wondered where Link was. I left the room and looked back down the hall in the direction I had come from. There was nowhere else to go. I thought I would get together with Link. I focused on opening a portal to Link. A portal opened. I went through it. On the other side I was in another similar hall. The only difference was that Link was in front of me. Link smiled at me and said he had thought I would come. I asked him if he knew anything else about the competition. He said he only knew what Q had told him. It turned out to be the same thing as Q had told me.

      Link and I entered a room at the end of the hall. There were several doors out of the room. They all closed shut tight. We were attacked by zombies that clawed their way out of the ground. Link had his sword and I used a sword formed from my Witchblade bracelet. Using these weapons we quickly dispatched the zombies. When they were all dead the doors opened up again. I looked at the doors. There were five of them including the one we had come from. The room was perfectly round and all the doors were open now, so there wasn't even any way to tell which door we had come in through. I looked at Link. He asked me which door I thought we should take. I wasn't sure. I closed my eyes and tried to focus on our goal. The problem was I didn't really know what the goal was. Q hadn't told me. I thought that was probably to keep anyone from teleporting straight to it. I finally got a feeling about a specific door. I pointed at it and then went for it. Link followed me. I stepped through the door… and the floor fell away from my feet. So much for trusting my intuition… I plunged down for what seemed like forever before I landed in a soft pile of grass. I was not hurt. It briefly entered my mind that Assassin's Creed isn't so far fetched for the fact Altaïr can jump 20 stories into a cart full of hay… I climbed out of the grass pile. It looked like I was outside. I had no idea how that could've happened. I looked up. I just saw the sky instead of the hole I had fallen through. I was confused.

      I noticed I wasn't alone. Nomad was in the meadow with me. He looked a bit distracted. I wondered if he was lucid. I remembered that we were competing, but I didn't really want to be an asshole and attack him when he wasn't lucid. I walked over behind him and spoke his name. He turned around and saw me. I told him he was dreaming. He said this meadow is amazing. He said something here made him feel like he was on weed. Really good weed. I wondered if he had been on weed when he fell asleep. I asked if he was lucid. He said yes. I asked if he remembered the competition. He said yes. I said then let's compete. He said ok and took out a sword. He just stared at me now. He looked stoned. But then he suddenly seemed to sober up and attacked me. Fortunately my Witchblade armor is a bit swifter than I am. It formed and blocked the attack. Had he just been feigning that he was on drugs? We exchanged a few attacks and finally I got an attack through. He dodged just enough that the attack cut off his arm. I did a double take and stepped back. He didn't seem to be in any pain. He looked at the stump and smiled as he grew a new arm. He said he had learned a new trick. He'd wanted me to see it.

      For the next few minutes no one was getting anywhere. My Witchblade blocked all of his attacks and my attacks were blocked by an invisible force field. I finally decided to charge my sword with white lightning. It works with the Templars after all… but of course Nomad isn't a Templar. I charged the sword with extra energy anyhow. We exchanged more attacks. I jumped up into the air and drove my sword right into the top left side of his force field. Glowing cracks spread out from the point of impact. The shield gave way and my momentum carried me through the rest of my jump… and my sword removed his head. My first thought was, "Let's see you re-grow that!" My second thought was, "Oh, shit! I went too far!" I heard Q telepathically remind me we were in the training area. Nomad would re-spawn. No worries. But the body was still there. I went over to it and it disappeared just before I reached it. I looked at the empty spot. Link appeared next to me. He said he thought he knew where the goal was. I pointed at the spot where Nomad had been. Link asked what was wrong. He said let's go.

      I followed Link into a tunnel leading into a green hill. The tunnel turned into a hallway. Link and I were walking along the hallway. He pointed to a door on the right. It didn't look like anything special. I reached out to open it. The door was locked. Link said it had been open a bit ago. He started probing at the door. I was losing the dream. I told Link I thought I was waking up. He said to just hold on a bit longer. As if he thought it would help he kissed me. The kiss felt so real.


      Note: I held the dream a bit longer but I lost part of my lucidity...

      He went back to the door. He finally found something. He pushed on a certain spot and the door swung open. He said to hurry. Link and I ran down a long hallway. There was a glowing light at the end. Was that the goal? As we got closer I saw the glowing light was a trophy. We entered the trophy room and reached for the trophy and BAM! We crashed into two other people coming from our right. Link, Selene, Nomad, and I were now all in a big pile on the ground. We had apparently found the trophy at the same time. That was just fine. I was losing the dream anyway. Everything faded to black as I woke.

      I'm just curious, are you guys training for some specific purpose? or is this just for fun? I'm a bit confused
