LD4all Quest 40 - February - Stop Time!
Author: pasQuale

Every month, on LD4all Lucid Dreamers Unite we have a new Quest to explore your LD's in a fun way.

Stop Time!
suggested by: Winter Depths
I'm sorry if I can't credit everyone, the Quest suggestion topic has become huge, and I realize I may miss double suggestions.

In Holland we used to have a children's a tv show, "ti-ta-tovenaar" and the main character could stop time by clapping in her hands grin I had to think of her when I read this Quest suggestion.

Well then, Time is an illusion, and even so in a lucid dream. So, this Quest is to stop time in your lucid dream! Freeze time, stop the clock. You can be like a time monk in the books of Terry Pratchett ("thief of time"). See if you can play with time, slow it down, speed it up. But the main task is to freeze time.


To complete this Quest and earn your wings

  • Become lucid ( )
  • freeze time!
  • Post your dream in this topic (a link to your DJ is allowed but you have to post in this topic that you have succeeded)


What happens after you have frozen time, is unknown, so there is no rule in when you have succeeded. Things may stand still, but something unexpected may happen too. In the end, you - the dreamer - are the judge of how successful you were.

Please be very clear if you feel you have completed the Quest or want to try again - I will only give wings if you feel you have been succesfull in completing the Quest, the wings are a reward for yourself.

I will give everyone who earned it their wings at the end of this Quest, so please be patient

Tips/suggestions

  • use a remote control
  • stop a clock
  • Use your amazing time stopping powers by yelling STOP THE TIME!
  • use a method of a character in a book/tv show who has an ability to stop time


Preparations/Incubation
Before going to sleep or while doing your LD incubation technique (WILD/WBTB/MILD, etc):

  • set your mind for this Quest
  • decide on how you will stop time once you are lucid.


Post your attempts, whether you feel you succeeded or not, in this topic smile

Good luck !

and

Have fun!

Hahahaha I tried it this time with funny results, but no success for now. Check it out (full dream in my DJ):

She avoids talking any longer, so I turn around and decide to have some fun. I didn't seem to remember about the Yoge Mountains, so my first though was to use fire powers. I was about to use it, when I remembered this month's LD4All quest. Right. Stopping time... Let's do it. I yell "PARE, TEMPO!" ("STOP, TIME!", in Portuguese). It didn't really work, though. This caused, actually more people to appear around me, and if they were silent before, they were now staring at me and talking about how weird that was. "Err..." Again, let's try it again. IRL, I had remembered reading about an old Japanese series by Osamu Tezuka where a character could stop time. I yelled like him, clenching my fist in a heroic pose. "JIKAN, TOMARE!". Again, it was no use, causing only more strange stares. Chuckling, I turn to the DCs and say "Don't worry, don't worry, this is all just a dream." I then tried one last time, in English "STOP TIME!", but it was no use. I woke up seconds after this.

There was an Australian series in the 60s. The young boy had a magic boomerang. When he threw it, time stood still for all but him until he caught it again. I must admit clapping your hands is a lot easier

Once in an ND, I used a sword like Hiro smile to focus to stop time and get away
I will only do this if it's useful in the LD colgate


<mod>discussion split into new topic in lounge if stopping time in your dream world were to stop time IWL? moogle </mod>

There was a british series in the 90s where a boy had a pocket watch that controlled time.

Yay, my first LD4All quest :D

I was in my high school again and think that I was a student. I wanted to Mr. Gibney's classroom and laid a note near his desk, I guess it was an absentee note.

I walked up three flights of stairs, looking for something, but I guess that I didn't find it. I went towards the door and
because lucid. I'm not sure why, maybe I realized that I hadn't been in high school in five years. I decided to see what was behind the door, making it be something exciting.

I opened the door, disappointed to see a closet, full of miscellaneous crap. I also saw a staircase going down and though it was weird so I walked over to it. I remember a standup-comedian last night talking about his grandmother falling down the stairs (that may have caused the dream about staircases) so I decided to try it.

I let myself go, but floated down very slowly. I wasn't flying like normal, just falling very slowly, almost as if I were an air filled balloon. The slowed down falling made me remember the quest for LD4All. I willed time to stop. I stopped falling, it was almost as if gravity was turned off. I can fly easier, but this was different, things definitely stopped, even though I was the only thing there moving, I felt time stop. I restarted time and grabbed one of the pictures that was on the side of the staircase, not the staircase to the house here I grew up.

I let it go and tried to stop time again, but this time was unsuccessful, I didn't feel the jolt that I had before, nor did the picture stop falling. I flew down the stairs and turned the corner, expecting somethign weird, but nothing was.

I flew across the living room and saw the cats laying under the computer desk. I said hi and sped up as I went through the window into blackness.
That gave me a false awakening. I had fallen into a pit with another guy and with our flashlight we could see xenomorph aliens scurrying around.
