      Task of the Month for January 2019



      Do you have a Task of the Month suggestion that you would love to get chosen?
      Now you have the chance to suggest new tasks of the month by clicking the
      Future Task of the Month Suggestion Thread.
      If you complete a current TOTM, you will be able to vote on suggestions for the next month!


      Introduction:
      This topic is for the Lucid Tasks that are assigned by the Lucid Task Club and the On-Topic Administrator. Please attempt any or all of these tasks throughout the month.

      Report back in this thread, even if you didn't successfully accomplish the task. Your efforts should make interesting reading! This is required in order to get credit, it is no longer sufficient just to say that you did it.

      How to get your wings

      When you complete a task: Go to your control panel, then to permission groups, and request to be in the group that applies to the task that you've done: one basic or both, one advanced or both, bonus or how many tasks of the year. Please note, that we now have wings for every task. Requesting to join the group will upon approval also grant you access to Lucid Task Club.

      Of course you still need to post the pertinent part of the dream here and link to your DJ entry.
      Format of your post:
      [Basic, Advanced...] -[Name of the Task] - [success or fail] - [pertinent part of a dream] - [link to dj]
      For example:
      Basic - Drive a car - success

      When you post about another successful attempt, please tell me if it was your first or second task from basic or advanced tasks, or first, second... seventh task from the task of the year. I need to know this so I know which wings to give you. If you only say "completed TOTY - flying car" , this doesn't tell me which wings with how many stars should I give you.

      Please, make sure you post here your attempts both failures and successes, this will make this post much more dynamic.

      Whoever completes any of these tasks gets the following goodies until the end of the month:
      • Your name will be displayed in ORANGE in the online members list at the bottom of the main forum page. *NEW* You'll also be displayed in orange purple (by popular vote) in our Discord.
      • You will receive a special title and badge.
      • You will receive access to the "Lucid Task Club" which is a limited access forum for people that complete a lucid task each month. Members of this club can vote for submitted suggestions for the next month's tasks. Access to the Lucid Task Club will also grant you early access to the next month's tasks, giving you a 2-3 day window to keep your wings for the following month.

      Tasks for this month:

      Basic Task i - Ask a DC where he or she is from. (Spaceline)
      Basic Task ii - Put an entire apple in your mouth and swallow it whole. (xreamphibian)

      Advanced Task i - Walk on the ceiling. (vbflame)
      Advanced Task ii - Create an opus (or any piece of music), share it. (Ic161)

      BONUS TASK!! - Grab a rope behind a spaceship and surf in its wake through space. (Gab/spellbee2)

      JANUARY'S BEGINNER TASKS: (Anybody feel free to have fun with these, but you'll get wings only if you are a beginner. Some will change each month!)

      1. Slow down, look around, describe what you see.
      2. Touch the ground. What is it? Grass, asphalt?
      3. Look at your body. What are you wearing?
      4. Try hopping around like you're walking on the moon.
      5. Eat something. Does it taste like it does in real life?
      6. Find text you can read, then look at it again. Has it changed?
      7. Pinch yourself. What happens?
      "Going through life worrying about the little things is like cooking with motor oil instead of cooking oil. Sure, you can still probably pull it off, but it'll leave a bad taste in your mouth in retrospect." - Me, apparently

      I have swallowed a whole live mouse before in one of my dreams. https://www.dreamviews.com/general-d...use-whole.html That apple one doesn't look too hard. The ceiling one I think we have done before, a long time ago. I like the Bonus Task. Space Surfing thru the milky way is a dream come true but, watch that asteroid belt, it's a killer.

      First Attack! Got Basic Task I the other day.

      Spoiler for Basic Task I - Ask DC where they're from:
      The visuals were a bit clearer. I was in the empty streets of a downtown area, right at the foot of vast skyscrapers, dawn light above. I flew upwards. It seemed I was bigger than normal. So, I shrunk down, if too far by going down to about a few inches in height. Anyway, with some effort, I phased through a window in the middle floors. I found myself in a busy fancy dining room. The people there initially appeared as CGI, but that was corrected in time. Either way, they were quickly alarmed at my sudden appearance (somehow seeing past my tiny form).

      I floated towards a particularly crowded table. Seated there were a motley group of well-to-do folk in their thirties, six of them women, and about two men, though the latter were quickly phased out quickly. While floating around them, I gave a simple greetings, and was given one in turn. As per the TOTM, I asked them all "Where are you from?" All but one unanimously blurted out "the UK!", (despite their obviously American accent) and chortled. The last one, a brown haired woman, quietly said "the Ukraine" with a nervous smile. I settled myself on the table, then tried and continue some small talk. Suddenly, one of the women took hold of me. This startled me right out of the dream.

      It's been quite a while. I may try to get some of these done. I'm out of practice as always, though.

      Yay! Another task of mine was chosen. Also thank you for the new username xreamphibian lol
      Hopefully I can actually do one of these. Life has been hitting me with lots of new stress, which is not too unusual unfortunately, but I have a feeling I might be able to pull off a task this month.

      write from my DJ.

      Spoiler for Completed the Basic I Task of the month. Sexual content may be advised... :
      https://www.dreamviews.com/blogs/ic1...-5-2019-86028/

      Task of the Month, Basic i: The dream started when I was at the corner of my house.
      "Well," I said, half giddy, half breathless. We were on a date if you can call it a date. It was in the middle of the summer.
      "This is me."
      "Nice place. Babe, I like it." He smiled.
      My Dream Character was named Paul. He was about 5 Feet 9 Inches tall with a short wavy Casual Hairstyle that fit his brunette Hair Color. The style on his side and back of his brown mane swept back behind his ears. He had a tan. His eyebrows had a slight arch. His eyes, Oh my god you can just fall in love with his eyes. They were a piercing forest shade of green that made you have goosebumps when you look at them. He had a slight turn-up nose and a four'o'clock shadow. From what I remember from the dream was that he had this iconic grin that was bright and sweet.
      His buff physique was somewhat visible through his tight black shirt. Apparently, the dream, he was about 170lbs. He was dress in casual clothes. He wore a pair of blue jeans in the dream.
      I was lost for words in the dream. I was so nervous "This could- Uh. You - could come up, if you wanted."
      His jaw dropped.
      "Really?!!"
      He stared at me with his mouth opened in shock.
      I recall that I felt tight that ached of old pain of old rejection. "Unless you don't want -", I stammered.
      He frowned, "IC, I would have to be spectacularly stupid not want to, with a girl like you!!"
      We stared at each other for a moment.
      "Like, stupidly, ridiculously, to the point of absurdity - He continued to babble on and on. "What?? Paul!!!" I said. "Shut up and kiss me!!"
      "I thought you would never ask!!" he smiled.
      He Kisses me before I make another sound. I whimpered, more than a little as his arms close around me.
      For all his ridiculousness silliness now, I have seen this other side of him, the serious side, the devoted side. The alpha male side. In the dream I remember that he pressed my back against the brick, one hand cradled the back of my head, the other cupped my cheek with the kind of tenderness that would make you cry!!
      A tear traced down my cheek. He made this weird noise and abandoned my lips. Then his kissed his way up the arch of my cheekbone and licked the salty liquid that fell down away with his tongue. Then I kiss the corner of his eye as my fingers entangle in his hair. Paul groaned as he pressed his hips against me, hard. I felt like I didn't give a damn that we were on a public street and people are beginning to stare.
      Doesn't even notice it in the hot crush of his thigh between me. Eventually, he buries his face in my shoulder and pants! Just pants, gasping for breath. My fingers card through his hair, almost absently, relishing the silky slide of his curls. My knees shook, even as he kissed at my collarbone. When he looked up at me, again. His eyes were bright, wild.
      "You are going to be the death of me," he rasped at last then raised a hand to block me as I moved in to kiss him again.
      "Don't," he warns, "Just don't, IC, or we will never get up those stairs because I won't be able to stop and then you will actually kill me."
      "Yeah," I said, breathless, helpless to stop the smile.
      "I actually would."
      Then at this point of this dream, I became lucid. He made me feel like I was flying.
      Our eyes met, and then we were laughing, helplessly, as we held on to each other up. Giggles erupt out of us in hysterical, and gasps. He looked up at me again, hair mussed, he a lopsided grin on his face.
      I couldn't help myself. I recall that I kissed him, hard and fast!
      At that point, I pulled away, tugged him toward the door, and doesn't even protest when he followed up like a little puppy dog behind me. His breath is hot against my ear as the door slammed shut behind us.
      At this point, I decided to do the Basic Task i- Ask a DC where he or she is from. Then asked him the Task question.
      "Anywhere you want me to me from, babe!! How far?" His voice is muffled against my hair as he drags my back against him.
      One flight, I promise, honey!! Then he grabs my hand, tugs me up the stairs. "So," I said as I hang the keys on the hook and turned to face him. "This is..." Then my voice trailed off when I say saw the way he was looking at me. His eyes hungry, his face stricken. He blurts out. "Get naked!!" short, sharp. "It's a command, not a request."

      Then I must have lost some of my lucidity but, who cares? I was enjoying the dream anyway. My knees give out from under me, "Whoa!" He said sharply and lunges to catch me. There's no trace of the smile now, just his eyes intent on mine, his hands palmed up under my shirt to cup my breast through my bra. Then I woke up!!

      AHHH!!! Finally :) Was able to get a task the very day after I hoped for one. This dream was really interesting to me in particular because I couldn't hear anything in the dream, but was still hearing what was around me in waking life. That has never happened to me in my ~10 years of LDing.. Anyways here's the relevant parts, though I REALLY recommend reading the entire entry. It's not very long.

      DJ Entry
      Spoiler for Basic I (1st Answer):
      The woman calms down enough to look me in the face and I ask her where she is from. She yells something silently and I try to watch her lips and discern what she is saying. It looks like maybe she is saying "Espaņa!!" But I can't be sure. It didn't feel like a solid enough answer to me.

      Spoiler for Basic I (2nd Answer):
      I ask where he's from and he yells an incoherent silent answer, so I ask him to write it down. I offer him a pen which has manifested immediately and a notepad that was harder to conjure and keeps trying to become my phone.

      He runs screaming into the soft side of one of the animals and I follow him, still holding pen & pad and trying to regain his attention. He is now very different in appearance. He's still beefy, but his face no longer resembles John Goodman, he looks clean, has short, slick black hair and wears a full pin-striped suit with a matching fedora. He turns to me roughly and takes the pen & pad. He starts by making dots and scribbles, using exaggerated movements. He keeps going and I eventually just take the pad back. As I look at it the words change extremely quickly. I blink my eyes and focus until I can see that they say "tu errryyghrregh".

      Ok now I gotta do my own task and gulp down that fr00t!! :D

      Just did basic I!! 2 task in 3 months, I'm getting good at this

      DJ Entry

      Spoiler for Basic I:
      I was home and suddenly I hear my dad calling. I know this can't be because irl he just left for work. I realize this is a dream. I go to him and he just wants me to help my mom hang the laundry. Afterwards, I spot him sitting in a couch and ask him where he's from. "May, July 13, 11", he says. I say that he isn't my that because he shouldn't be here and that answer is ridiculous. Turns out it was Bowser in disguise. After some weird stuff I don't really remember I decide that I want to fly, using a broom, like one of the previous TotM. I am slightly successful and I wake up.

      From the other day:
      I just woke up from an epic lucid dream! It's one of those dreams where you can totally storyboard moment by moment, It every had an action sequence and you can feel the tear-jerking emotion, possible. Even some flashbacks too.
      Unfortunately, when I tried to swallow an apple for the Task Of The Month whole no matter how big or small it was or how big or small I was, I had laryngitis in real life, it hurt going down in the dream but, I had to spit it out.
