"Long" dreamsIt'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?

Other people's dream journalsI've been really into reading other peoples dreams, as well as my own, and i've been into it ever since i was a kid.
Recurring Dreamsever since i was 11, i've had recurring tornado dreams.
Touhou DreamsI'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.
Skeletons, Surgery, and SudokuI had a dream a while ago where I was a gynecologist performing surgery on a bunch of dusty skeletons in some dark chamber. I soon escaped, but was sentenced to the death penalty by some chess pieces. They made me wait in this room whose walls were covered in sudoku puzzles. When it was finally my turn to go, I screamed and ran down a flight of stairs and saw my great-grandmother. We went back upstairs to find my father's whole extended family protesting my execution. It was a sight.
Hub worldsJust last night I revisited the same place twice for the first time. I was walking around in a very dark place, I think I could see pillars and ruined buildings around me, but not much else, when it suddenly opened up to a shallow marsh underneath a moonlit sky that I had seen only a couple of nights before.
Lucid ChanYo guys,did you know that LucidChan is a thing? It's a whole image board devoted to Lucid dreaming! I thought that /yume/ would enjoy it! Check it out!
The Raincoat ManI see this figure in my dreams. Out of the corner of my eye, he looks like a man wearing a rain coat. When I've gotten a good look at him, he's actually a floating raincoat with some sort of strange light shining from where the head would be. On the surface of the light is the face of a man in his 30s or 40s. He's clean shaven with light green or bluish eyes & a 1000-yard stare, thin lips on a mouth in a constant neutral expression, with thin, light-brown eyebrows. The face kind of "floats" on the light, sliding slightly from place to place as it moves like the puck in air hockey. The light behind the face is kind of a bluish, greenish hue but mostly white.
Silent PlacesMy favourtie dreams are mostly, where I am alone. One time, I was waiting to catch a bus, that arrives in about ~5 hours in an empty city. I just walked around, found a train station with a street fighter arcade, played it a bit and just explored afterwards a bit more. Even the whole town looked very dreary I never felt so calm.

Advice for Lucid Dreaming?I've been trying to induce lucid dreaming for a while now, and I've looked up a lot of methods on doing so. Tried the WBTB method, but I always end up in terrifying nightmares that I can't wake out of and have little control over. Seems like I can't lucid dream when I want to, and I rarely get it when I'm not trying.

Reccuring theme in dreamsHello, /yume/.
Dream blindnessThere's something that's recurring in my dreams every now and then. Maybe once a month, once every two months, I don't actually know the frequency. I'm only aware of it because it happened repeated times. Anyway, what I'm talking about is that sometimes I have dreams where I can't open my eyes no matter how much I'd force myself. Sometimes I'd be able to open them just a bit and see ever so slightly, but it's very uncomfortable. Actually it's more like being unable to see anything with my eyes facing forward because of my eyelids, but I can see ever so slightly if I turn my gaze down.
laptop thievery by strange men in dreamsI dreamt that I was sitting outside Runnymede station (A subway station in Toronto, which faces a small park) at night, while using my laptop for some purpose. I was on a picnic bench beside a mailbox. A strange, lanky man with short hair approached me, and began to converse with me in a gibberish language made up of pops and clicks, as well as occasional nonsense words. Although now in the waking world I don't recall having seen his face before then, it seemed to me in the dream that I was familiar with this fellow and his habits. Thinking it would be funny, I decided to reply back with pops and clicks of my own, despite not understanding what he was saying. After a bit of conversation, he stopped talking, let out an "ah!" and smiled, before moving forwards and stealing my laptop, running off into the night. I shouted "Hey! This guy's stealing my fucking laptop!", and gave chase. I noticed that he walked in a strange way, as though he was either mentally deficient or had shit his pants. I chased him across the small park over to the road, and after chasing him down the road for a bit (while occasionally getting a hold on the laptop, before it was fruitlessly yanked away), he threw the laptop back at me, which I expertly caught. I heard my Dad say "Nice catch!", which was odd, as I hadn't seen him in the dream. I then decided to make my way back home, but instead decided to try and teleport home. Just as I teleported, I woke up.
Uncommon and undocumented dream signsAs 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.
Dreams messing with memorySo, lately, I've been finding it hard to differentiate what I do in a dream and what I do when I'm awake. It gets to the point of me constantly lacking a certain awareness I think lots of people have. I have some small form of MADD, but I don't think that really has to do with it. My memory's been getting really messed up, to the point of me finding it hard to remember what happened a few hours ago. For the most part, I can't remember my mornings at all.

YN Syndrome ExplainedWhere did this whole “YN Syndrome” come from? I am currently trying as hard as I can to achieve my first lucid dream in more than 15 years. I have a world already created from scratch named Lucia with nearly the same eccentricity, density and gravity, an erratic weather system, three continents under a super continent, overpopulated by the trillions, and it does have a chaser population just to the northwest beyond the desert near the poles. Lucia is located in the constellation Cancer orbiting a yellow normal star. I tried my very best of my abilities, but needed advice. My goals: Explore all three continents 100%, unite all of our YN protagonists only so I can form a big enough army in preparation to take out the chasers populated from the northwest, and finally, stop global corruption using whatever we have with discretion while at the same time conquering my own fears. The planet I am going to may look like this, both from space and on land as a quick glimpse preview.
Trigger odd dreams?Do any of you have any ideas on how to trigger certain types of dreams? Specifically dreams that are on the bizzare side of things? Not so much nightmare-esque, but just really trippy, insane type dreams. All of my dreams seem to be so socially oriented or dialogue heavy. I'd like to see some of the more asthetic. This is of course, assuming I can't lucid dream, but I am of course open to methods of accessing such dream types lucidly as well. Thank you for your time.
Miscellaneous Dreams ThreadThis is a catch-all thread for miscellaneous dreams.
Lucia in Turmoil (Part 2 cont.)I just made a 2-week time-lapse GIF for the updated map that if you can click on it, it will give you a rapid-fire sequence of events based on positive-neutral-negative outcomes we experienced up to this point. At first, the Lucians appear to be losing ground a little bit from several negative dream outcomes, but after some major encouragement, plus the advantage of using the high ground give them an advantage to push farther north just before reaching snow-capped territory. Autumn is setting in fast from the north, and heavy storms are battering the neutral eastern seaboard that is not my concern.
Lucia at War: Lucians vs. Chasers (2217 AD)Hey, fellow lucid dreamers! My dream planet that I worked on for a long time from my visualization hiatus indicates there is going to be a war between my own dream characters I call Lucians versus Chasers, the source of our nightmares. I just whipped up a MS Paint map to show you what is happening while I was not there. In my last visit to that world, I was stationed at the Lucian capital as a coming of age prince on my way for coronation, but was besieged and left for dead by a local Chaser army. They let me go after I made a selfish decision to lose my ability to dream in exchange of not besieging again for a set period, and going back again before their terms are up would mean an all-out war that my “dream people” can’t win by themselves alone.
Dream SettingsI know this is kind of a hit-or-miss question, but it's worth a shot. Do your dreams ever take place in their own "world" or are they inconsistent or just regular places from your life. If they do take place in their own "world", can you describe it?
A recent lucid dream I had. Many cats are involved.A week ago, I surprised myself. I Tweeted that I should lucid dream, because I haven't done one in awhile, and on that same night, it happened. I guess i either got lucky or just by thinking about it before bed made it happen.
A messed up dream I had in a hospitalSo this dream I had in a hospital is creepy as hell and it very much so resembles some parts in .flow. I should say though that the hospital I had the dream in was a "different kind" of hospital so that should make things make a little more sense. (WARNING CONTAINS .flow SPOILERS)

I had a strange dream.I was literally just browsing /fg/ on uboachan in my dream, I kid you not. I had dug in to a lot of older posts on /fg/ I hadn't seen before where most of everything was incomplete, but I found one "joke" game that was just someone's completed fangame with a troll chipset.
Fake Lucid Dreaming?I seem to keep having this problem of not knowing whether i'm actually lucid dreaming or if i'm just dreaming i am. I had a dream last night we're i woke up from my "lucid dream" into another dream. This is what happened:
Boring DreamsI used to have control over my dreams. For some odd reason, I don't have that control anymore. And my dreams kind of suck now. I remember them but not much happens in them. My dreams used to be very vivid and full of life and now it's just dull and lifeless. So my question is, how would I go about fixing this?
Thoughts On the Structure of Dreams and Using it for a GameIt has taken me a while to get myself to write this, and I don't feel all that inspired at the moment, but considering how obsessive I can be, if I don't just get this down and wait for a "perfect time", it will never happen.
here's my dream.i had a dream where i was poniko, and madotsuki kept turning on and off the lights. instead of turning into uboa, i turned into monoko and i was like "give me a hug" and she did so.
Im not dreaming as much as i used toSo if you guys remember, last year I was talking about dreamscaping and how I found that I could lucid dream in such a way where I will literally build the entire dream's setting and/or re-enter dreams from any point in time.
Schizo's dreamsI have spent a lot of time expanding my mind and dreams to have wonderful dreams every night. They are starting to get very long and detailed. I can even wake up and re-enter the same dream I left which makes my dreams even longer. Gonna put dreams I feel like sharing with other people in this thread.
Chewky's Dream Thread 2: Electric BoogalooSo I vaguely recall having a thread dedicated to my dreams back in the day, and since it seems to have fallen off the board during the time where none of my dreams were interesting enough to write down I guess I'll just start up a new one. My dreams are getting too strange and uncomfortable not to write down.

DreamscapeMy conciousness often hates me. It plays tricks on me. At some level, I fight myself. I remember being acutely aware of becoming lucid in a dream, and when I did all the protagonists in it looked at me with sinister intent. I had control of myself and the environment…
私の夢I've been having a lot of bad dreams as of late, bad enough to the point where I'm often waking up multiple times throughout the night out of emotional anguish, hurt, or distress, and to where I don't feel rested despite getting around 8 hours of sleep altogether. Maybe posting about them here will help me to stop having them. Note that I'll post any good or neutral dreams that I have here as well.
Dream I found interesting.Alright…So, I found this on someones blog.

natural disastersI had another one of these today, a dream about disasters. This time it was meteorites. I was in some kind of futuristic place when the first came. It was a small one, but big enough to make a massive blastwave that I could feel. There were lots of people around me, everyone was frightened. Then suddenly more of them came down all around us. I did manage to survive and when it was over I made out with a girl looking exactly like Olivia Thirlby in Dredd (best part of the dream I suppose) and we realized that these meteorites were send down by some evil force…

My first meaningful dream.Last night I had my first "loose tooth dream". In the dream, I was walking around a very dark shopping plaza that I didn't really recognize. I was just aimlessly walking around the parking lot, looking at the stores; all of the stores had completely black windows that I couldn't see through, and there wasn't any sort of entrance to any of them. The roofs to the plazas stores were all connected as a normal plaza would, but it was dark purple with each store having strange red text above them that I couldn't read. It didn't look like any sort of language I've ever seen before. The sky was pitch black, and everything outside of the plaza seemed very dark; I could tell there was something out there, but I couldn't tell what. Anyways, as I was walking around, I noticed one of my teeth was very loose; I fiddled with it with my tongue, as I would in real life, to see how stable it was. Then it just fell out; the tooth wasn't white, as they are in real life, but it was a light beige with dark, dirty spots that contrasted greatly with how dark everything else in the dream was. Then, more teeth started falling out; however, I still kept all of my teeth (minus the first one that fell out); it just looked like teeth kept falling out of my mouth. I picked up as many as I could and just started running as far away from the plaza as I could for some reason that I can't really remember; then I just woke up really suddenly.
Kvlt of FilthI just had the most filthy dream.
Eurochewky's Subconscious AdventuresSo I've been having enough weird dreams lately that I figured I'd make my own thread for them. Feel free to take a shot at being Freud - your guess is as good as mine on what all this shit means.
Pipe DreamsPipe Dreams are dreams you have while straddling the fence of consciousness with drugs, namely opioids. Pipe dreams are the trippiest and most immersible dreams I have had.
A webcomic about dreamsCurrently, I am planning a project for which I will work on a web comic which takes the elements of real dreams that my friends have written down in a journal. I will inscribe the most horrible of nightmares in stark contrast to the ecstacy of a lucid dream. I plan for the dreams to mesh, such as in a way "Ultra Heaven" seemed to do.
OH BOY I'M MAKING A THREAD FOR MY OWN DREAMS, GOLLY IS THIS A NEAT THING OR WHAT?!Last night I had a dream I was with my brother and his friend, wandering through a maze. Well, actually, I met up with him later, haha! We met up by this area in the maze where it was sort of musty and dark with some pipes hanging out of the ground that were beginning to rust.
Show me your true form!So every time I dream I have a pare of bat wings, but I was wondering if other people had some alternate form they took on in there dreams.
I had a mild Inception experience!!I had a 2 layer dream (Keep this in mind my phone was almost dead as I was going to sleep and I always Lucid dream so I sometimes don't know what reality/dream) in the first dream I was sitting in my room then I heard my phone ringing and I thought it was ringing in real-life so I woke up to answer it not realizing I was still in a second dream so after a while of trying to talk on the phone it died so i thought i was really awake then I heard my front door to my house open and I woke up yet again and I checked my phone to see if it was really dead and it wasn't…
Upsetting events in dreamsITT something that happened in your dream, that really upset or disturbed you afterwards.
fever dreams/hallucinationsA really bad fever was responsible for the only hallucination I've ever had in my life. Basically I was up really late and didn't notice that I was starting to have chills (because it was winter, oops). So I went to bed, but instead of closing my eyes and going to sleep, I guess I either started hallucinating, or was dreaming with my eyes open, either one. I couldn't move at all.
Black Ceasar: The next SchlockI'm only around for a few more days, but as I promised in the 'dreams and dormilla' thread, I've created my own thread to discuss my dreams. I will be gone for appx. 3 weeks at minimum starting weds of this week.
The Meaning of Your DreamSo does anyone here do dream interpretations? This is more of a board that talks about dreams rather than analyze them. But what if I proposed this thread as an interpretation thread? And no bullshit interpretations either, please. like you ate a pancake in your dream and it means UR GAYT!!! or something. I wish this to be a serious thread.
Influencing the Content of Your DreamsSo, I often dream about fandoms (not intentionally). They're usually my most fun dreams. As of the past couple weeks, I've really been enjoying the Portal 2 fandom, especially Wheatley (pic related). After about a week of no dreams about Portal 2 whatsoever (and some pretty boring dreams), I thought I'd try and intentionally have a dream about Wheatley.

Disturbing dreamsGuys, I died in dream recently.
DREAMHad a dream the other day about Einstein, I was in a small room with this scientist giving a short lecture. He explained to me that even though people aren't related to Einstein in any way, they can still naturally inherit his (or anyone else's) D.N.A. He explained it in a reasonable and rational way that seemed realistically possible, but when I woke up, I forgot everything that was explained to me. But it felt so calm and natural, like I just discovered the secret life and the universe.
Podcast on lucid dreamingHello /yume/, I don't usually visit this board but I heard this the other day and thought it was relevant.
My dream that I had awhile agoThe first thing I remember was going into this smaller type of sort of `home` restaurant (I guess..) and asking for a job. This woman (Maybe..) in her 50`s ish told me that there was already a dishwasher and didn`t need another. She was something of a bigger lady. I talked to the dishwasher and her and eventually something was worked out where he would take a week long vacation and I would take over to make some money. The thing is that the job starts early in the morning at around 8. It was already pretty late and I am just not a morning person so I guess I decided to stay there for the night, or for the week. I`m not sure what the conditions for rent were.. Whatever. I guess I had moved my stuff in there too, because for some reason I was trapped in that place. Maybe I was in a completely different city than my parents, and maybe I didn`t have my own place. It`s not terribly important I guess, dreams don`t have to be logical. It`s more the feeling that it gives you. It`s not how you get there, rather it`s getting there itself that is important. Anyway, so I`ve set the scene.
Recouuring themes or subjects in dreamsExcuse me if there is already such a thread, But I'd like to make one where we don't discuss individual dreams, just common things that happen/are present in your dreams.
Pic is unrelatedI had a dream that I had a dream that I had a dream playing Yume Nikki, and I had to steal Mado's knife, and she lived next to me. Her sole life depended on that knife, and the screen kept blinking when I tried to force it away from her. When I finally did, I ran out her door but she caught up to me, triggering a fullscreen event that was BRICKSHATTING SCARY.
Real Life Decisions Extending Into DreamsI had a dream about Brandish for the SNES. Basically I'm at a thrift store riffling through a box of cartridge-only games. I'm competing against another collector; the cart he picks is the US release, whereas I end up with the Super Famicom Planetbuster release w/ the purple label.

3 dreams1.So this one dream I had I was on one of the moons of Jupiter. It's the one with the surface of ice and an ocean beneath it. So I'm in the ocean beneath the ice, I can't see my own body so I don't know what I look like, but I'm moving through the water. It's very, very, very dark. There is a lot of movement around me, and a faint noise. A creature with a very slim body like an eel comes at me and I manage to dodge, the creature is fast however, and turns on a dime. I wished that I could evolve a drill and burrow through the ice to the surface to escape, except I just wished the idea in my head i didnt say all those words. So I have my drill now and get to the surface. It's very windy and just as dark. There are hundreds of pixel sized stars in the background. And a 200x200 ball that is the sun. there are creatures rolling around on the surface, being knocked by the wind. an eagle like thing swoops at me, i idea wish again but for wings and claws. i fly up and drive my claws into its back. its warm, and very gooey. like fresh taffy. its blood is a deep purple.
This dream literally makes no sense.Pic unrelated, but seriously, I feel like this might be a dream FRAGMENT or something, But I remembered this an typed it down before I could forget it.
*sob*Any one else have those dreams where they are talking to a girl/guy that you want to date? Not a person in real life, but a person in your dreams.

Dream TattoosLast night I had dreams about a friend of mine and I told her about it. She asked me a very good question.
A returning dreamLast week I had this dream about a nice little village. I walked through it peacefully until I realized something strange on my right arm. There was a couple of band aids UNDER my skin pressing against it from the inside so you could tell what it was… Then suddenly I heard a voice saying something like "there is a way to heal yourself" and then all of the sudden a giant black shadow like monster - the first time it was a dragon without eyes in the last dream I had it was a giant black shadow like dog without eyes - anayway these monsters did the same exactly thing. They opened their jaws and roared the shit out of me… but I stood still. Then the band aids got more and more and I thought OH MY GOD and after a while they disappeared completely. The monsters then closed their jaws and vanished into nothing. After that I woke up…. I wouldn't mind something like dreams and shit but man… this was intense AND I dreamed it twice in a week not once in a week…
Yume Nikki Dream.Last night I had a dream than I was madotsuki. I explored a very surreal world full of things in Yume Nikki and things my own mind made up, all of it very surreal. I don't remember anything specific before this point though. At one point I went into an elevator on the side of a featureless apartment, I came up to an office sort of place that had a couple of creatures I didn't recognize, Masada was there too. I went through an elevator on the other side of the room and wound up on a small planet with the drowning man from the area you get the witch effect from floating in space. I came back, told masada to record it. Then as I go to leave I suddenly spaz out and leave and enter the room over and over again. The planet changed each time, like I somehow new it would. Then all of the sudden I was outside at the apartment balcony again. Just as I walk to leave, I feel my stomach burst on the inside, I clutch my stomach (me still being madotsuki) and I feel my stomach get warm and bloated, almost like I was pregnant. Then I woke up. After I woke up the feeling was still there, my stomach has been feeling funny ever since.
