I've been saying I would do another Lucid Dream story for a long time and here it is! For those of you who are new here, you may want to check out Lucid Dream: Until Dawn for some of this to make sense. For those who already have read it, welcome back. I've decided to make this into a series. I already have ideas for two more entries after this, but we'll see how it goes. But let me not get too far ahead of myself and worry about this current story.
Lucid dream: noun. A dream state in which one is conscious enough to recognize that one is in the dream state and which stays in one's memory.
Lucid dreaming is something I've been able to do for a long time. I can go to sleep and live out my dreams in books, movies, and games. I can become anyone when I dream, do anything, even the impossible. But I can do it too well. If I get hurt, I wake up injured. I think if I died in a lucid dream, I could die for real. I'm not going to test that theory.
Another thing; I'm not always in complete control of everything. Think of it as a butterfly effect. One change could affect the outcome of the story, for good or for bad. And since I'm not in control, I have to be prepared for anything. It's constant research on my part because when I dream, I'm given a goal. I don't always decide the goal, but in order for me to get out of that world I have to complete the goal. If I don't complete the goal by the time I wake up, I come back the next night and the night after until the job is done. I don't know why, but that's how it is. And I kind of like it. It gives me a challenge.
Welcome to my dreaming.
Just a little set up/reminder before diving in the dream.
