      Had a few seconds of lucidity, started to decide on a task to try, and woke up because I was sleeping on my arm weird and it went numb. Going to go back to sleep in a bit and see if something happens.

      I am just starting to have more lucids so I don't think I will take a shot at the advanced ones. The basic tasks are simple and fun. Although they could become a lot more complicated than the advanced one. By 'any means necessary' I already get all of these insane ideas and granting a wish can be done in so many grand ways.. I can't wait to get those advanced wings

      Hi. I DID IT! I asked a DC to tell me a wish and I would grant it. I couldn't conjure a box of "Perfect Pancake" but I offered and tried. Please check it out.

      I just got the first basic and was on my way (I think) to an advanced when I woke up. Anyway, here's what happened.

      I was sitting at a desk in what appeared to be an office setting with other desks around and people working. I then noticed that I had no clothes on and that's what triggered lucidity. I remembered that I had been awakened by a driver calling around 6:00 am so it had to be after 6:00 and I was worried that I might not have much time before waking up. I got up and walked out of the room into a corridor and a staircase. The whole place was furnished like an expensive hotel. I was trying to think of something to do when I remembered the tasks and I said, "I need to find something to break before I wake up, and I'd like to find that treasure.

      Then I noticed a potted plant in a ceramic vase sitting on a little end table. I thought that there should be a treasure map inside that vase so I picked it up and threw it against the wall, where it shattered into several small pieces. I went to the debris and saw two scraps of paper and a Bible. My first thought was to pick up the Bible and read Matthew 6:19-21, the passage about storing up your treasure in heaven, but then I thought, "I bet that's not the kind of treasure they're looking for to complete this task." So I was about to see if one of the scraps of paper was a map and I woke up.

      failed

      [SPOILER]Some people stood near my fence and made something with it. I went out , counting fingers. It was difficult because then i decided make RC all became grey. I had six fingers, so i went through the fence thinking about object to break. I saw several paper-packs from juice. I step on one of them, thinking how i destroy it but it was like from iron. I tried with other pack, but it was like from iron too. I was upset and saw an old granny. I went to her and said - today i'll grant your wish. The old woman had kind eyes and looked at me. I lost awarenes and became a DC. I took part in some show. Somebody touched me - it was that old woman - and she asked - how about my wish, dear? I answered - sorry, granny, i have already lost my awareness))))))) And i didn't remembered that a moment ago i was a dreamer)))))) [/SPOILER]

      Ooh, all of these sound fun! I'll try the basic goals tonight.

      EDIT: I was so exhausted last night that I fell asleep before I could even do a MILD.

      Then once I woke up, I re-entered the dream with a WILD but had already forgotten about the dream goals. :V

      Not sure if i completed it or not but I'll post what happened.
      After being in the dream for a while just following the story line I decided to try the basic task of the month to break something. So I was walking and I saw a huge table or piano made out of white blocks / bricks. I then activated my TK by saying something like "I have TK now so the should be easy" With the TK activated I held out my arms pretty wide and as i brought them back together quickly i crushed the front half of the piano and it turned to white rubble. Then i pulled the second half towards me and did the same thing. After that there was a tiny piece left and I realized something was coming for me so decided to mask myself by creating some white dust from the tiny piece. First i held out my hand in a fist and as I shouted"Dessimilate" or something like that, I flung my fingers open real fast. However nothing happened. I thought the dream / SubC didn't fully know how that command should work so i pictured it in my mind saying something about particles and then tried again. This time the piece exploded into white dust and rushed to conceal me as I fled.

      Yay, Some new mischief for me to get into,
      Advanced II looks like the only challenge, This is gonna take serious work.. I have left myself notes on the computer before and always there is something missing, Like a mouse or keyboard so I run it by thought and when I do find something I can seldom read it.......

      I finally joined the BREAKfast Club!! Got an advanced one too. Struggled a bit at the start. Whole Dream.

      I looked immediately at the night stand (which occasionally has an empty or nearly empty wine glass). I remembered that there wasn't one last night irl, but I hoped there would be one there if I LDed and sure enough, there was my favorite stemless white wine glass. I picked it up and chucked it at the wall, and it shattered. Though with not much noise.

      I went to the bedroom door, and it was locked, so I had to unlock it before I could open it. Duh, I know, but still funny that I actually had to do that. I was blind in my left eye, still a little wobbly, and feeling like I might lose the dream. So I just shouted "more lucidity and clarity" and told myself that I don't have eyeballs or eyelids right now. All my vision is a huge panoramic movie screen. My vision got to a functional 80% I'd say.

      I continued to the kitchen, and literally ran like a school girl to the little piece of paper under the olive oil. I was so happy that it was there! In real life, I had written:

      Hey Ophelia, you
      still dreaming?

      - Ophelia *
      Now the paper just had a few polka dots, and 3 fluffy cows that looked like they were playing leap frog. I'm gonna draw it for the draw your dreams thread later, it was pretty funny. Anyway, I laughed out loud in the dream at that, then went to the pantry for more wine glasses. I pulled them out one by one and threw them. Some would break and a couple just bounced.

      Then I went for the eggs in the fridge. They were right were I normally keep them. I took them out and chucked them at the wall, at the cat, and at a random DC who walked by. My cat didn't like it, and I actually apologized to her haha (real life Sofie thanked me this morning with a nice, wet hair ball). Anyway, I'm kicking myself now because if I had thought of it, I coulda asked that DC if he wanted a wish granted. Oh well.

      Attempted Basic Task I. Does getting frustrated and ripping it to shreds count?

      Here's what happened:

      There are tons of people milling around. The dad from my prior dream is grilling food, and there are a bunch of fat guys in tank tops drinking beer out of a cooler. There is a little girl in a purple swim suit playing with the sand. She has a toy shovel and those little plastic sand castle molds, and she's making a castle. She has white-blonde hair that curls in little ringlets around her ears, and blue eyes. She looks like she's maybe 3 or 4, and she's adorable. There is also a black and white Border Collie lying on a red and white checkered blanket next to a guy in a t-shirt and his kids. The dog is panting, because it's hot outside.

      The swimming hole has a tall, metal slide where you can slide into the water. The sky above, unlike 99% of my lucids, is vivid blue and brilliantly clear - this is a hot summer day, probably July or even August.

      I clap my hands together and yell out loud "YES! Finally!" I immediately run up to the dog and pet her. Her fur is thick and somewhat coarse. I scratch between her ears. She's very friendly, and enjoys the attention. As I scratch her behind the ears, I recall my lucid task.

      "I need to destroy something right away!" I tell the dog. I had decided on Simple Task I, which was to destroy an object by any means.

      I look around. One of the first things I see is the little girl's sand castle mold, but even thought she's a dream character I feel kind of bad about that. I see a plastic drinking cup with Vash the Stampede on the side of it (I haven't watched anime since the 90s, I don't know where that came from) but decide it's too solid/not interesting. There's an array of picnic stuff - plates, cookware, food, etc. I settle on the one thing that I feel is out of place: an empty carton of half & half.

      I point at it and try to make it explode. Nothing happens. I get angry and pick it up and throw it, yelling, "This is MY dream!" It still does not explode. I chase after it, scoop it up, and tear it into several pieces. I begin to throw the pieces at the two fat guys who are sitting in plastic lawn chairs and drinking beer. They think this is hilarious.

      It was my 4th (or 5th?) dream of the night - the whole dream journal entry is here: Lucid Task of the Month Attempt: The Cook Out

      Completed one of the basic tasks:

      I Got a Job
      I am in a computer data center. I have a job here. It is time to run the nightly backups. There is one of the backups that I don't know how to run yet. One of my coworkers leads me back to the data center to the appropriate server. There is a tape drive there and my coworker has the appropriate tape for the backup. She shows me where a series of the tapes needs to be inserted. She inserts the first sequence and I insert the second sequence. I look around the place to see where the rest of the servers are. I ask my coworker about them. She says we keep servers secure for many other companies. I see servers with names on them I don't recognize. I see a server marked Abstergo. I do a double take at that. I ask my coworker if that is for real. She says they all are real. I decide that is too weird. I do a reality check by pinching my nose and I can still breathe. This is a dream. I find this annoying since I'd thought I had a job finally. I think about what I want to do. I think about the task if the month to break stuff. I could trash the Abstergo server. I pull the tower of CPUs over with a crash. My coworker asks what I am doing. I tell her I'm giving Abstergo a headache... damn Templars... She asks if I'm crazy and picks up one of the fallen CPUs. She seems relieved that it is still plugged in and working. I pick up one of the other CPUs and slam it to the ground. My coworker says she is going home. When pissed off Abstergo people arrive she will be somewhere else. Oh, and I am sooooo fired. And I'll have a bunch of pissed off Abstergo people after me... what am I working for, the Assassins? Pissed off Templars after me... I tell her that's nothing new. Great, she says... a fucking Assassin in the data center. She says smash away, she quits. I smash a second Abstergo server before I wake.

      I did it. I broke a chair and read the note!

      WILD I became count fingers, i didn't see them and they appeared! Soon the picture became clear. I was on some party. Tables and chairs were outdoors. And there were a lot of laughing people. I saw plastic chair and became to break it with my foot. I was breaking it with my mind and with my foot. When i destroyed the chair, i went through the portal to my house to read the note. But i found myself in my friend's house. I made another portal and found myself in mine. I went to the shelf and found the note. I remembered what i had written in real, but there were different and unconnected words. Like * effective clock blue* I tried to read it once more, but words were in english, not in russian! I gave up it and tried to went to real, but couldn't. I tried several times. no result. So i just walking till lost awareness.

      Yay she, congrats!

      Interesting how the words went back and forth from russian to english. What did your note say originally, in real life?

      Darn it, I can't find that note anywhere! I've been flying everywhere looking for it and trying to summon it, but to no avail. *sigh*...

      ok, I was suppose to message about the december TOTM, but that was december so forget it. I like basic 1; I think it's so tricky because the mind tends to make things as stable as the dreamer is in the dream. so it takes some major control to brake something lol. still, i hope to make the cut. one question for whoever wants to answer: if I manage to do one of the TOTMs, i get to be apart of the task group and an orange name, or is it just one of the two, and what happens if I accomplish all the tasks? the Tasks look very interesting and fun so I'm excited to try.

      You only need to get one task to have the orange name and access to the task club, and a set of wings. Nothing really special happens if you get ALL the tasks, aside from a double set of wings. If you want more glory, get all the TOTY and your name will be orange all year, plus task club access all year. And major bragging rights
