This story, Perchance to Dream, was originally published on September 20th, 2008 as a short story. Shortly after, I began expanding it into a novel, which will soon be published. After a posting glitch, the short story was no longer visible to the general public. At the time it had been removed it had 327 reads, 7 'I likes', and 15 comments. You can now read Perchance to Dream (Short Story) as a mini-novel.
Below are the original comments left by the original readers. Enjoy!
