I've been gone a very long time from ld4all and lucid dreaming. I am sorry for not having being interested in LDs and things... I've had to rewrite on my DJ and ld4all DJ...

However, yesterday I've suddenly have lucidity but directly lose lucidity after... I think it's +10 for lucid points...



Current LD goal(s): To master flight (including the dragonfly flight...)

Task 5 – Parallel Self


Welcome to task 5! This task is less focused than most, but I came up with a few things I thought would be interesting to do in a LD. The first two parts of the task have been adapted from previous LCs. They seemed to cool to pass up. I also wanted to add a couple other things to the task as well.

The main goal this week is to find a parallel version of you. You can do this anyway you please, as long as the person is a parallel version of you. They don’t even have to look like you; they could be some old werewolf version of you for all I care. Basically, what is essential is that you know that the DC is a parallel version of yourself.

The second part of this week’s task requires you to go to the moon and moonwalk (the dance move). The third part requires you to walk, run, or fly in the rain. For those who have never done this, you don’t know what you’re missing. Personally, being in the rain in my LDs is one of the funnest things to do. Although it seems simple and stupid, it can be quite fun. Same goes for the next part of the task, where you must feel the sun on your skin. The final part of the task requires you to transform a DC into something. It can be whatever you want as long as you transform a DC.

+10 pts creativity will be awarded to the person who comes up with the most interesting transformation for a DC. +5 pts creativity will be awarded for the person with the second most creative transformation. Additionally, if you use what I deem to be a creative method for finding your parallel self, then I will award you +5 pts.

Here is the breakdown for this task's points:

1. Find a parallel version of yourself – +40 pts
2. Go to the moon and moonwalk – +20 pts
3. Walk, run, or fly in the rain – +10 pts
4. Feel the sun on your skin – +10 pts
5. Transform a DC+10 pts (+5 pts per tick each time thereafter)


To be clear, on part 5 of the task, you get +10 pts for the first time you complete it. Each time thereafter, you get +5 pts per tick. A helpful hint would be that you could score a combo bonus by finding your parallel self and then transforming that parallel DC.

Alright, I know this week is a hodgepodge of tasks, but hopefully everyone will find them fun. Trust me on parts 3 & 4, as those tasks can be surprisingly fun. We are nearing the end of the LC as there are only two more tasks left after this week. As I am going to be extremely busy over these last few weeks, I may need to extend one of the tasks for an extra week. If this is the case, then I will post around the same time I post the tasks and announce the extension, as well as a bonus task for that extended week. Scores and creativity points will be coming soon, but as I said, I am extremely busy, so it may take a few days.

I had a medium length LD here that didn't accomplish any tasks. I dealt both with the sun and feeling heat in this journal entry, but not both at once.

Very brief lucid moment this afternoon from a very disturbing dream. I don't feel it's appropriate to type up the details. But no task done.

I had an FLD this morning. I also unintentionally had a new flight method in an ND — as opposed to piloting a single-seater, tiny jet like before, I flew coach class last night. tounge2 It's funny how many dreams I've had about boarding planes and being at airports in the past that never actually had me riding the plane.

I spent time as a DO watching a movie play out in front of me, but if I understand you correctly, the repetition part of the DO task requires you to inhabit another body rather than be an actual DO, so this does not count.

I had a medium LD with a chained part after it, and looked at my reflection in a mirror. The world was very dry and the one DC in it wasn't something i would try to transform. 8P

Today's DJ entry has an ND in which I complete Task 4 Part 5, then a second ND / medium-length LD in which I again do Task 4 Part 5 and also do Task 5 Part 4 (and possibly Task 1 Part 4, if the bit of time I spent as another person counts as a "different" flight despite me flying as Scipio in a previous LD). If I understand correctly, the first ND removed the combo points I would've gotten from the second dream an hour later... I am not amused by my subconscious' sabotage, so please tell me if this is the case so that I can stop trying to incubate the tasks in normal dreams and hurting my own score.

Had another disturbing dream sadblauw Just a ND. I was watching first as DO and then I became a male DC that was in the dream. I didn't really feel different. Just a whole lot taller and I guess somewhat stronger.

Ugh yuck I can't stand those disturbing dreams. Had a bad one the other night myself. Maybe you should try summoning a dreamcatcher in your LDs.

You are correct!

I think you mean Task 5 part 4, not part 1. I wouldn't count that as Task 1 part 4, a you have flown as someone else before. You are correct that the first ND removed your opportunity to score combo points for Task 4 part 5. By the way, I saw that you did accomplish Task 5 part 1 in a later post, so you have been given the points for that as well as for accomplishing Task 5 part 4 in this quoted dream. Additionally, I gave you points for Task 4 part 5 for both Superman and Clark Kent, although if you'd rather, I could remove the points for Superman. In my opinion, they seem like separate enough perspectives, so they technically qualify.

That's the best part. It seems insane, but for some reason the rain in LDs is awesome.
