Basically we're each going to take a part of one of our dreams and mash it together into one big story. Ex: I'll take the landscape from one of my dreams and then the next person will take something from their dreams and that will be the next part of the story. If we wake up because of death, being scared, mind rape, ect. We start a new one.

Here we go.
"We wake up in a monochrome, steampunk world.

An orange creature holding a red Fanta in one hand, a blue Fanta in another hand, a green Fanta in a third 'hand' that is where a foot should be, and a orange Fanta in another 'hand' that is where another foot should be tumbles through the air, flying in a fumbling-falling way that it really shouldn't.

The world shakes for a moment.

Everything that was spooky-weird is now normal looking and everything that was normal looking is now spooky and weird.

The creature is no where to be seen, it must have flown on by.

This is a catch-all thread for miscellaneous dreams.

Drop your dreams that don't fit anywhere else in /yume/ here. They can be any type of dream about anything; lucid dreams, moody dreams, crazy dreams, fetish dreams, even trips/hallucinations, ANYTHING that doesn't need its own thread, post it here.

This way /yume/ won't be cluttered up with threads that never get responded to, and it'll be way easier and simpler for people to post their dreams since they won't have to start a new thread every single time; I want to hear more dreams from all of you and I encourage you to post them here no matter how short they are, and no matter how insignificant you think they are.

In the last 10 days I've had 5 similar dreams. The story and setting was wildly different for all of them, but in every one of them I was about to have sex with someone, then suddenly the person loses interest before we engage in anything and instead I watch them have sex with someone else. I am so tired of these dreams. Just let me have a good ending for once. I'm literally getting cucked in all of my dreams now. An even worse part is that in 3 out of 5 dreams the person looked exactly like my boyfriend but I was aware it wasn't him. In the other two they were characters from visual novels I've played recently.

As you almost definitely know if you're here and reading this, the most well-known way to trigger a lucid dream is to realise that you're dreaming (DILD.) Aside from the run-of-the-mill reality checks like your hands, clocks and mirrors, I've read that keeping a dream journal can allow you to recognise recurring themes and events in your dreams. These are 'dream signs', and I guess the utility of them must be to trigger reality checks, or let you realise outright that you're dreaming. The stuff I mentioned above – like hands and clocks – these are common dream signs, ones that happen in everybody's dreams due to the parts of the brain that shut down during sleep, etc.

What I'm interested in are /yume/'s uncommon dream signs; recurring details in your dreams that you don't think everybody gets. Post them!

Additionally, what are some dream signs that you think everybody must get (due to the brain's weird power re-allocation during sleep) that nobody really talks about or are relatively undiscovered?


OP here again. Honestly, I'm just posting my dream sign as a reply because this imageboard is dead, and I feel like people are more likely to read my thread if they see a reply.

This dream sign is of the second kind listed in the OP. I think it probably happens to everybody, because of how the clock thing was described to me.
In my dreams, if I'm with a group of people (which I often am,) the members of the group keep changing into different people. Not in front of me, but as if my brain can't keep track of everybody that's there. In my most recent dream journal entry, I was exploring an abandoned industrial building with my immediate family, my grandparents and my uncle. inb4 b&, I'm 18 I realised when I was writing my dream down that at some point my uncle was replaced by three brothers that I didn't know, but in my dream I didn't realise this had happened. So it's possibly a good reality check to try really hard to recall if people from a group you're in are mysteriously missing or replaced.


>this imageboard is dead
No. Also, WILD is better.


>>this imageboard is dead
It always seemed that way to me when I was lurking. Pleased to hear otherwise! I'll start browsing more regularly.

>WILD is better

Not the discussion I was trying to have, but thanks for the bump I guess.


>Not the discussion I was trying to have
Beggars can't be choosers. DILD is for the type of people who like to shove dildos up their ass, okay? WILD is easier to do because it requires far less preparation and conditioning. WILD also produces far better results. The dreams you have from WILD are more vivid and you feel more in control of them. This has to do with brain chemistry. It's easy to slip back into a normal dream world with DILD, but that's not the case for WILD. I'm sick of seeing all of these homosexuals telling people who are naive and just getting into lucid dreaming that DILD is the best option when it isn't.

Hindered movement.
Whenever I attempt to run in my dreams I move as if I were underwater. All of my limbs are slow and I have to actually concentrate on pushing my legs from the ground to accomplish anything at all.

Apparently it has something to do with your actual physical body lying still and failing to send movement signals, so, of course, it doesn't feel like you're moving in the dream either.

Another one, though I'm not sure how easily you could go about recognising it while dreaming, is things happening exactly the way you expect them to. Say, you walk into a room that's dark and spooky and you think to yourself that there's definitely a monster in there. A second later, some shitty cryptid makes itself known through its shriek. Or you're having a conversation with someone, you say something stupid, and expect a certain reaction - and they do exactly what you predicted. It's basically the same dream manipulation you use when lucid, but subconsciously. And if you're a pessimist, it quickly turns the dream into a nightmare, annoyingly.

I always wake up panicking, almost always, I never tell anyone this, because I don't make noise, only my last gf noticed. I dont know why I have nightmares daily, I never can remember what they are, I wish I could just remember once…..


I know that you posted this months ago, but I'm holding out hope that you are lurking.

Are there any reoccurring themes in your nightmares? It's very possible that you have unresolved trauma.


Let me rephrase since you can't remember the nightmares. The fear when you wake is always the same, right? Is it the fear of your own life or something else?

I had this dream that was pretty strange, have no one else to tell to, so here it goes.
I was in this room, it was an office, everything was in this shade of blue.
I was under this table, hidding, people were white, plain white, like a 3d model.
They were walking all around the place, and to the wall on my right, Ranny (a friend of mine) was with a Bunny mask, standing still.
When I tried talk to him, but when I tried, the room was destroyed by a flood, and sunddenly, I was in a sea of blue and black, and I could not get to the top.

(Sorry for the poor writting, English is not my first language)


White is the color of paper,
blue and black are common ink colors.

Did a thread have to be bumped off of the board for this?


hello anyone here

Seems like it was a dream that cold have an interesting context.

You broke one of the basic rules of dreaming, to never follow/approach bunnies in a dream, it'll fill it with surreal nonsense.

What >>2459 may be suggesting, is that it could have been posted in >>505 as to not clutter this cool but slow board even more, which I agree with.


always follow the white rabbit


I'm sorry I'm knew to the Uboachan, I didn't mean to clutter the board ;^;
My friend (Ranny) says that bunny is his "spirit" animal.
Idk, I may try to include in my fangame, lol.
Sorry again, I'll try to not fuck up again.

I've traveled many a url and I believe I have finally reached my destination to write down all my Touhou dreams that I have accumulated over the past year and a half. Dreams had been censored on /jp/ so this seems to be the most appropriate place to wright. I currently have 53 dreams to wright down during the creation of this thread, but I do expect and hope to have many more to jot down here. Feel free to ask questions, discuss these dreams, or wright down your own dreams involving Touhous in this thread.

I shall begin next post.

>I had a dream where I had died, and my soul drifted to Gensokyo where it was made flesh again.
That doesn't just happen in dreams, anon…


I've had a dream before where some 2d scientist women were trying to solidify my existence in their universe using some machine that acted like the one at the beginning of half life 2.


I was the end of some kind of mission, there was a 2d girl tied up at the entrance of a victorian area building in the middle of a modern city, and beyond that there was a castle that was about to blow up.

I had to defeat the last boss so I flew to the top of it, and that's when two 2d women who were on the castle started flying as well, one of them in a dark victorian era dress and the other one was Tewi.

I hit the one in the dark dress with an energy attack from afar with my hands, then Tewi threw some homing danmaku at me and I tried getting away but I woke up while I was dodging stuff.


Any tips on how to get more touhou dreams? I used to get them all the, over 130 entries is evidence of that, but what am I missing now?

Sorry I know it has been a while.

It's a subject that fascinated me in Junji Ito's short manga story "long dream," and something I've read a lot of interesting stories online about, but I had never really experienced it until about a year ago, after a long time of experimenting and trying to force one to happen to me. The story in this paste is a record of that dream I posted to another forum. It was extremely vivid and frankly scary as fuck and made me abandon my attempts. Have you ever had a long dream? Or maybe one that was fragmented and you kept going back to after waking up?

I just had one. I always have long, strangely detailed and absurdly terrifying dreams with more recall than I'd like to have. It's too long in fact to post here, so:



The first paragraphs were so appealing to read. Once you compared it to “Angel’s egg”’s town I knew I would like your dream’s landscape. Now, the next part, when you enter the house, that is….. a different kind of ride. It seemed quite a soothing and introspective dream before, nonchalant exploration. Since you entered the house, it became unpleasant so fast. It is interesting how common it is for people’s minds to distort homes to unnerving perspectives inside dreams. It’s as if your own mind wants to challenge you on the place you should feel the safest. Your dream was quite entertaining to read, especial due to its imagery. Were you ever conscious that it was only a dream?

Thank you. I'm very happy you read my dream.

The landscapes inside of my dreams are usually quite detailed and terrifying. Language does not really suffice to explain the element of terror. Every night I go to sleep I find myself in places that make The Mist look like happy hour. Angel's Egg represents a foreboding feeling for me with its abandoned and desolate nature so it often presents itself as a recurring location. I don't consider it a good or welcome setting for a dream, it really just signifies that a living hell is approaching. Signals such as this only serve to completely dismantle my sleeping state and end with me waking up in a pained frenzy. I can't recover from these dreams for a few hours as the level of detail they fall into is beyond words. Only the dreams that bring terror will go into such detail. The supposed good ones are just forgotten. As a result, my brain subconsciously wishes for nightmares and tries to manipulate itself whilst in a sleeping state towards it's own worst fears and nightmares. It's disappointingly and masochistically brutal, yet produces significant results.

I've never had a home myself, so I never dreamt of a home, only rooms and buildings which bear familiarity to the real world. My mind without a doubt challenges me every single night by subjecting me to evil and terrifying nightmares. I say this with complete assurance that my subconscious realizes that I am weak. It desires to strengthen my resolve through torture. Lately I can dream of the most despicable trash without batting an eye. Spiders can remove my eyes with their overgrown fangs and claws, Satan can spirit me away to hell on a boat made out of flesh, it's all just the same. I have grown accustomed to nightmares and they are the norm. Good dreams no longer represent their intentions or exist in a focused state.

I was completely conscious that it was a dream. Every dream for me is a lucid dream. I have complete control and awareness over my sleeping state despite the fact that I've never wished for it, and it's even more terrifying as a result. I experience sleep paralysis, hallucinations and nightmares nearly every single night and haven't felt relief in eons. It's fucking terrifying. I've adjusted to wake up during sleep 3 times per night to jot down happenings before returning to my dreams. These notes are so disgustingly dePost too long. Click here to view the full text.


Get therapy.


>These notes are so disgustingly detailed and familiar that I refuse to share them. The subconscious is a nightmare within itself.

As much as you don't want to, could you possibly post something from it? I find it really fascinating.

Is there anything specific you need to adjust or NOT HAVE in the room in order to get to sleep?

For me it's dolls. I cannot sleep if there are any in the room. Stuffed animals and the like are fine, but I can't sleep if the empty husks of babies and children are in the room. Bonus fear if I know their eyes open and close. I have actually gotten so scared in the past that I hallucinated hearing dolls on the shelf talking.

I've been this way since I was about 5, and had two Raggedy Anne dolls on my shelf. Somehow I convinced myself they would mutilate me. I've gotten better, I used to not be able to sleep if I knew there were dolls in the hallway, or even the house. Now it's just the room. Anything with eyes watching me is unnerving, but dolls are the worst.

Also, I prefer the closet to be closed, but I can bear with that. Unlike dolls.

>Admin didn't archive the site on the Wayback Machine before taking it down

I suppose death is something I need to be more familiar with anyway. It's how imageboards are supposed to be.

Our thoughts and impact on the world will disappear just as quickly from the world as the threads with our heartfelt thoughts in them drop off the end of the board.

It hurts to not even know what was lost with that site. One day, uboachan won't exist either. I hope that day isn't any time soon.


>all imageboards are destined to die and be forgotten
that stinks!


Reality stinks.


We should make the best of it!


Just because something has happened over and over again in the past, that doesn't make it inevitable. Technically, even Uboachan can still exist a hundred years from now. Faith in stuff like that is what keeps me going.

Wow, it's been so long since i last visited this website but i've decided to stop by for some help on something that has been baffling me for awhile.

I notice that in the beginning of a lot of my nightmares i dream about watching a horrifying documentary of sorts narrated by a male voice that always sounds like Robert Stack from "Unsolved Mysteries". In fact half of the nightmare would play out like the show, including a gruesome and realistic body horror photo of the victim, a detailed description about what happened to them, along with the ominous low-key background music. Worst part that makes my spin still chill is when the camera zooms in and i can see more horrific details. I've only ever watched the episode about Rogest Cain but that was 4 years ago.

Documentary-type dreams i've had included a tiger with an extremely enlarged head and bulging glossy eyes due to a brain tumor, a kid crying in pain from numerous teeth growing out of his skin, and re-enactments of a murder/robbery taking place in real time inside my house.

I liked to watch a lot of documentaries when i was in middle school about medical mysteries or human bravery so i'm thinking that maybe the horror aspect didn't register with me until much later because of my fascination obscuring that perceived fear.

Has anyone else experienced these type of nightmares? What could they possibly represent since i see little discussion on these specific dreams.

OP here.
I think you are correct in that it's probably from watching too many documentaries with body horror back then. The only type of documentaries i watch now are those "Top 10" styled videos on Youtube on certain topics. It still perplexes me though that my dreams play out the "unsolved mysteries" format, despite only ever seeing one episode of the show. The fact videos i see now are vastly different (in terms of presentation) to that series but for some reason my brain just latched onto the show's disturbing atmosphere.


File: 1499648084631.jpg (401.78 KB, 1200x1600, 1410481421123.jpg)

Not that this is what's going on here, but I'm just going to blog for a minute.

I just had a dream, and though all of the details have already disappeared because I have been moving around, I distinctly remember lying in bed, thinking about the dream, and realizing, "Hm. Maybe it means that I want to see things like I'm a little kid again."

It was something about listening to figures of authority - a lesson which I have been stubborn in remembering since I have a decent job and can afford to be on my own.

So what I would try to do if I had a dream like a documentary, and when I was a kid it was what I watched a lot of, is abstract the fuck out of the information until it becomes a sort of Rorshach test.

So I used to __sit__ in front of the TV and __watch__ a __documentary__.

What is sitting?
Something that requires no effort and is presumably comfortable.

What is watching?
Post too long. Click here to view the full text.


Okay, I will speculate on the horror.
The furthest I would take it though, is that your brain may be attempting to replicate the phenomena of the "Documentary," in which simply by the act of watching you are granted the solution, reason, or history behind some previously unknown person or historical place, or it is trying to help you figure out the explanation or reason behind some specific suffering you are experiencing, or suffering in general. Do you think about suffering often? Whether your own or others'?


OP again.
Wow, that Rorshach test example on how you thought about the dream is something i definitely need to try the next time a documentary nightmare occurs. It might help me understand better what the origin might be of my personal anxieties.

As for thinking about suffering, it really only occurs through intrusive thoughts that i try hard to push to the back of my mind. On occasions when i'am about to doze off, my mind churns out creative and artistic ideas, which is awesome. However, that all of a sudden slowly devolves into horrible memories of being too curious about a horror movie and reading or watching a review of it (Tetsuo the Iron Man or Serbian film). Sometimes a scene from a horrifying documentary called "Children of Chernobyl" would pop into my head and i can't sleep until i put music on to distract me. I used to be into horror movies as well back then and still am now but after stumbling onto "Tetsuo the Iron Man", my desensitization to gore/body horror dropped so hard that i couldn't watch horror films again till 2 years later.

Maybe i'm pushing these intrusive thoughts back too much and they are starting to show in my dreams. Heck for all i know i just might be a bit winded from being bombarded with daily negative news about people suffering and feeling bad for them.

I don't know when i'll have another documentary dream to confirm any of these theories about why they happen but when it occurs i'll make sure to write every detail and feeling down, even if thinking of it after awakening scares me to pieces. :/


File: 1499704185725.gif (120.44 KB, 600x800, 1469313108694.gif)

The self-administered Rorshach test is something I do with each and every dream my brain chooses to present to my consciousness.

>Maybe i'm pushing these intrusive thoughts back too much and they are starting to show in my dreams.

I was getting curious as to why you run away from them. Is it just because they feel bad? Don't you feel bad all the time already? Why hide from bad things if they won't kill you?

When I was going through my period of vivid psychic horror, I would explicitly summon it, and attempt to capture it in drawings. Avant garde/Dark ambient sound really assisted with that expression and experience. I decided that the horror which existed within my brain, and at the same time seemed impossible to have been generated by it, was nonetheless a part of it, and that assimilation with was the only way to move in any direction - not necessarily forward, but maybe down?

There is no good or bad, and everything in the world suffers anyway - look at how the bugs writhe, starving, how the cute animals fight over what raw scraps of plant life or even better, human garbage that is left for them on their paved-over ancestral homes. Much to the chagrin of the people who built their own physical, mental, and emotional prisons, and now starve within them for all forms of sustenance.

I say it's not that there's nothing to fear, it's that there's nothing left to fear; we are already dead and dreaming.

Sorry this got bloggy, I am very tired and felt like writing something.
