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.

borkarprasad: Story was overall a good experience. I liked that the truth unraveled slowly and kept me in edge every time I changed the chapter. I would love to read more volumes to this legacy and be glad to read it from a published book. Great work!!!!!!!!!

dapharoah69: I gotta hand it to you. This was a great read from start to finish. I am a big fan of witches, thanks to Anne Rice. The characters really reeled me in from the very first few chapters. You make reading fun.

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).

Sammi Chan: THIS WAS AMAZING!!! My favorite part of this story was the slow build of Merlin and Arthur's relationship. Their relationship was rlly nicely fleshed out and so good :) The way that you handled the magic reveal was super enjoyable. I rlly liked the switching POVs. Good!Mordred was cute and I'm rl...

Angel S. Adames Corraliza: Sensational! As a fan of superheroes, I have to say, you have a real winner of a story so far. I like that you made Allison a Wonder Woman expy, but kept her likable and relate-able in this first chapter. You showed us the Mother while also glancing at the Superhero, which I think is important to...

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...

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters. What I found special was that it took a modern day problem and took it to its logical conclusion and plays this realism with gritting precision. I'm always on edge ready to shout from adrenaline. This is gr...

Jacklyn Reynolds: As a mother of an Autistic child, I know how hard it can be. I love how beautiful you made everything. That's all I can say. I need to grab a tissue.

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.

FreakyPoet: I found this story well written and extremely cute. I like how the emotional roller coaster, otherwise know as love, was done here. it was very believable that these two characters would deny, agonize, then come to except their feelings the way that they did. I enjoyed it very much, thank you ...

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 ...

Clare Cormack: Fantastic read! I was gripped from the beginning. The plot twist and change of gear stops you from putting it down. I enjoyed the way the individual characters had their own chapters, reading from their own point of view - believable and identifiable. Im really excited to read the sequel and have...

Lacey Schmidt: The Trouble with Super is that you can't stop reading it. Mr. Barrett's characters are all to easy to relate to even if you don't have a super quirk of your own, and their plight is both heart-rendingly funny and heart-warmingly sad at the same time. It's a bit like Office Space meets the Matri...
