Inception doesn't mean what you think it means

Sometimes daydreaming can get you into trouble, but what do you do when it is other people's dreams that you have to watch out for? You have the unique ability to predict what kind of dreams other people will have, but lately, your own dreams have taken a bizarre turn in which you're being pursued by armies of cats. Stranger yet, you learn that the leader of the dream cats needs his body to access the Real World.

Finally, the strange becomes downright weird when a beautiful girl suddenly drops on top of you and announces that she's a Dream Demon looking for a way back to the Dream World. The fabric that separates reality and fantasy is torn to shreds, and you have a lot of sleepless nights ahead of you as you have to deal with both the dream stalking and a dream walking.

Player Comments

This story is very well written. In part, I read this one because I read Xalen's comment, and as someone who has watched Yumekui Merry and read the manga, I want to say that Xalen's comment is not that fair.

Sure, the author copied some parts of the story, and I can see traces of the plot here and there, but the parallel plot adds to the story, and doesn't interfere with my enjoyment. Furthermore, the author also added much of his own creative element. In all, I think the author merely made the mistake of putting this story under the "Fantasy Adventure" category instead of "Fan fiction".

Great story, albeit short. The autor has a stylish way of writing and sets the atmosphere perfectly, his choice of words matching the setting of this confusing dream land. I just wish this were bigger :)

Oh, and a slight correction is needed: When running from the cats, if you choose to observe the spining top until it topples but happens to die afterwards, the game will forget it has already stopped spinning and you get to see it again ;)

Very mysterious, and nicely done. However, your pages are riddled with grammatical errors. Not sure if you wanna fix them or not.

For a multiple-part story, I hope the endings are linear, because I only reached one ending. Personally, I think you should implement Part 2 into this; it would make sense for readers with different endings.

This is a great story. Wonder if I can reference it for a story I'm writing myself?
