A {{Web Serial Novel}} about a high school that takes place in a shared lucid {{Dream Land}}. Similar to a {{Choose Your Own Adventure}} except that new pages are uploaded (mostly) bi-weekly and it's more of a choose-''our''-own-adventure- you decide with other readers what happens next through events ranging from majority rules, to raffle, to everybody affecting the character's emotions.

The story starts out with you reading the welcome sign quoted above. [[TheyJustDontGetIt You don't understand it]], even when you see students flying and racing invisible cars to the school building. Over time you meet several students and get hints as to what the school's all about.

After the latest page you're given several options to choose from. That event eventually closes and the story is locked down a certain path based on reader input. Readers can also win rewards so that they can affect the story more- for instance, by giving the author a sentence that they must use in the story.
