The Misadventures of a Sleepy Hunter

Dreams

Man dreams of many things; some grand, some simple. Some dream of attaining riches that rival the splendour of a hundred kingdoms. Some dream of a fair wage. Some dream for the love of everyone around them. Some dream for the love of a single person. Some dream of becoming great Heroes; tokens of everyone envy, admiration and desire. Some dream of being seen as Heroes to the ones that matter most. Man dreams of many things; some grand, some simple. All dreams to all dreamers are exceptional and unique and are the driving force behind many of mankind's greatest achievements and innovations...as well as it's greatest failures.

However, occasionally, a persons dream can be described as odd, strange, or downright ludicrous. A dream that simply defies the comprehension of all except the one who dreams it. A dream that, by all accounts, would cause the dreamer to be considered many things; insane, stupid, moronic, idiotic, crazed, mad, deranged or violently unstable, to name a few.

Yet this does very little to deter such dreamers from pursuing there dreams, and many entering into Beacon Academy could be considered as such by the masses. Young men and women, pursuing their own dreams, goals and ideals by becoming Hunters and Huntress'; a terrifying and awesome occupation in itself. Yet, even amongst these young dreamers, there is one whose reason for entering Beacon would confound even the most intelligent amongst them.

A young man who fell asleep on the airship to Beacon and completely missed everything that Glynda GoodWitch had said.

A young man who missed the assembly for the new students and somehow ended up on the roof of the Academy.

A young man who got lost attempting to find the hall where the new students were to stay the night and decided to sleep outdoors.

A young man, who by some miracle, managed to find the cafeteria the next morning in time to get some breakfast.

A young man who stared vacantly into the distance as Beacon's Headmaster began to explain the rules for the entrance examination, his words little more than white-noise.

A young man who was confused as he suddenly found himself flung high into the air, soaring like a bird...that began to plummet to the ground like a rock.

A young man who was lost in thought as to what he should do next, before falling right into a stream.

A young man who was dripping wet as he stood on the grassy bank nearby, looking around with the same blank expression that always adorned his face.

A young man who, having no knowledge of what was going on, decided to lay on the ground and gaze into the sky through thickly shaded spectacles that hid his eyes.

A young man who eventually began to drift off to sleep as he lay in the Emerald Forest, completely oblivious to the dangers that surrounded him.

A young man, who by the whimsy of fate, was found and partnered with a Faunus girl who despised humanity, but needed him in order to pass the exam and forcefully dragged him throughout the Emerald Forest.

A young man who would be the only human amongst three Faunus, the team led by the very girl that loathed his existence.

This young mans name was Arden Cross.

His dream.

To create a world where he could sleep wherever he wanted.

RodRaglin: Your writing is very good, Rachel, but remember you also have to entertain the reader and in that regard it's a bit sparse in action and dialogue.Consider when revising...When starting a new story always consider your protagonist's Goal - what they want; Motivation - why they want it; and, Confli...

farziex3: I think this novel is perfect because it had erotic, romance, and towards the end was a twist so I was just on the edge of my seat reading this book. It was honestly really amazing. I haven't found a book I actually liked to read for almost 2-3 years and this was a great book to start off. Makes ...

Althea Kerr: This is a tale that is all too familiar to South African readers having lived through a war era on our borders and beyond. It is obviously autobiographical as the mind under duress is so detailed and real. It has fantastic suspense if a bit disjointed - perhaps that is the fear and loneliness com...

ryder: This is an excellent read. From beginning to end the author showed his creative and imaginative writing skills. Twists and turns, surprises, humor, and sorrow: This book has it all. I strongly recommend this book, and I am already recommending it to my friends.

Kaitlyn Bier: The way you build the world around the characters is amazing, and the way you get into the character's mind and make us feel for the characters through the entire story. There isn't much more I can say about this other than amazing! Are there going to be anymore updates any time soon?I also Vote...

Brandy: What a great take on the idea of finding your dream man. The story was very emotional with strong characters. I would recommend this story to any who wants to read a good love story. And yes, Italian food does make everything better.

fellipxx: I loved this novel, it was very sweet and big on the emotions I really enjoyed it and could not stop reading not even for a second, I even cried a little bit at a few touching moments too. And overall I found this book sweet, realistic and cheesy (I like the cheesy stuff).

Lydia Sherrer: I first read The Speaker almost a decade ago when I first discovered author Sandra Leigh. I loved it then, and I still love it now. It is a simple, easy read, yet deep in meaning and rich in storyline. I do not know what kind of research or prior knowledge Leigh has of First Nation tribes, but sh...

AnnaLucia: This fanfiction has an amazing plot. It's very different from the books, yet the author still managed to keep the personalities the characters had in the books. Your Alec and Magnus still are themselves, even though you created a different plot where Bane had to seduce Lightwood to get informati...

Christopher Calvo: Truly a wonderful read and very well written! Love the characters and character development, and can smell the frybread as I read it! Can't wait for more as we delve into the Buffalo Summer.

MissMadokaKaname: I was impressed and moved by this work. The characterization and dialog were strong, and really brought everyone in the story to life. Also, the setting was handled in a believable and compelling way. The story captured the complexities and pain of love, and also the harshness of living in such b...

dd1226: I love reading about other countries and I think this story about Cambodia after Polpot creates awareness of the tragedy that happened there and the actions of the U.N. to hold elections. The heroine of the story is easy to relate to, a modern, middleaged woman looking for an adventure, wanting t...
