James: Sorry, but I can't award points for trying past LC tasks. In any case, you're currently in first place, so congrats on that!

The scores are updated.

Wandered in a city last night. Ate in a restaurant too, but since I only recall the building and not eating, probably doesn't count. Posting dreams soon. It was Skyrim/One Piece inspired city first, but when I escaped with my crew it was a modern one. smile

Edit: Almost forgot! I did some physical activities on a football field that then turned into a gym hall. I did push-ups with one hand.

Damn, you guys get up early for a Saturday!

Kicking off the challenge with my 200th LD party1 which was a medium one. I struggled with my character transformation.

Susan_Y will approve though of the pre-lucid bit in which I chat to a six-foot animated snowman who was a bit Olaf-y. :D

Congrats obfusc8! ^^

I had a long LD (yay) in which I drove a bus through a city (mega yay, I wanted to drive a bus since I was a kid).

obfusc8, with respect to the part of your journal that says I required the attire, I did challenge you to do so, but it's ultimately up to you as to what constitutes your character. If the tattoo is the key part, feel free to tell me that you feel as if you've completed the task. In any case, congrats on 200 LDs! Is that really all you've had? Given the rate at which you have LDs, it feels like you should've had way more than I have.

Koharo, yes you can! EDIT: I originally gave points here, but didn't realize that Koharo hadn't actually had the dream yet and was just asking a question.

En'enra, I was smiling seeing how happy it made you to drive that bus… and laughing that you had a collision. tounge2

The scores are updated. Thinking about the entire "be a character" thing, I've decided to make one last concession: You may change your character once before the end of Week 1. If you made something that just doesn't sit right with you or that is too hard to become, you have one chance to make something that works for you. Part of the reason that I originally requested anthropomorphic creatures for characters is that I find radical, surreal changes much easier to envision than more subtle, realistic ones. After all, the uncanny valley effect is much more noticeable in humans than in animal people because we see humans every day, so imperfections can be much more bothersome. If you find yourself struggling to incubate/visualize/become your chosen character, I suggest you try something crazier, paradoxical as it seems. Of course, if you're perfectly comfortable, then keep on keeping on!

Thanks everyone. My LD rate has only recently reached this current level, and I've been practicing for less time than some... but I'm catching you up, Thorn! :D

Re the task completion: No I can do better. This is supposed to be a challenge and while my competitive streak wants to claim every possible point so I'll beat drd this time , there's a voice in my head reminding me the challenge is ultimately against myself. Plus, there's seven weeks to perfect this transformation... ^^

@LC Participants: (Already discussed it with the TM) To clear things up I didn't have the dream, I was asking about the conditions before incubating it. So no points for me just yet.

Added a bit more to my description, I believe it was a bit brief beforehand.


Koharo wrote:




Species: Unknown (believed to be a mutant or monster as some would say)
Gender: Male
Appearance: Appears to be human, long black hair, eye color varies. This somewhat exaggerated persona tends to have a bored or aloof expression when inactive for too long, but when in action he can't help but smile.

Edit: His hair is sometimes spiky like the avatar's and other times straight. Hair length varies as well, either slightly past his shoulders or down his back like Neji's. This persona wears urban/modern day attire (novelty tees, faded jeans, hoodie tees, sleeveless hoodies, etc), sometimes wears native American attire, and originally moderately muscular build. He bulks up or changes size depending on the transformation (a quadruped wolf, hulked out anthropomorphic werewolf, an eagle, urban cat, raven, an anthropomorphic Jackal that bulks up sometimes, a hulked out version of his human form, or a giant version of his human form).

Height: 6ft
Mindset: My avatar reflects a less gritty and censored version of my dream interests and persona; Young, energetic, reckless, wild, and free. I like adrenaline inducing dreams, doing the impossible, thrill, action, and adventure. The party never stops around here the world is our playground. Heh I've got chills just thinking about the thrills to come.

How mean.

I'd like to change my character. I'll think about it some more and update the description (and the pictures, if I manage to create them).

Transformation is really, really difficult for me. Even a simple one, like changing what I wear. I had the most luck with a changing my hairstyle, but that's probably because I change it often irl.

So.. here's some surprise success for the first night of the LC! Not as much as Letaali, but still. tounge2 I'm grouping any kind of "wondering if I were dreaming" under the category "Lucid Moments" even though they're not actually lucid. If they were to continue under that level of thinking they would have led to lucidity and so the name I give them is as such. tounge2

A Suburban Scene ~ Short Lucid Dream
Laundry Burrito ~ Non-Lucid Dream ~ Lucid Moment

Meaner than you dreaming me up to be the evilest dragon around that attacked you and made you kill your family? Meaner than shrinking me and putting me in a pillowcase prison? I HAVEN'T FORGOTTEN! lekkerpuh

I've updated the scores with Scipio's dreams.

I thought I was forgiven. blauw Your memory is great, though, I completely forgot about the pillowcase. wiske

Anyways, I updated my application post with a new character. Now that she's wearing battle armor, she's looking forward to host-related tasks. grin

EDIT:

Today, this entry.
A medium lucid (about 10 minutes long), and a tiny lucid FA. Low lucidity, no tasks.

Non-lucid dream in which I'm in a battle scene in a modern city. It had something of the look of 1950's sci-fi comic about it. (Also apocalyptic anime like Akira or Neon Genesis Evangelion ... and in parts a bit like the Israeli war documentary Waltz with Bashir).

Does this count for the "Wander round a city" subtask? (Even though people were shooting at the time).

I bet Thorn totally wants to see Anna from Frozen replacing Asuka as a mecha pilot in Neon Genesis Evangelion, but I wasn't Anna in this dream.
