DREAMSCAPE
BY: MARY CLAIRE B. GARCIA

SUMMARY
After surviving the Third World War, our city has shut itself from the world, creating
its own government, and own rules. No one gets in. No one gets out. Which city? New
York City. But its called Pleasant City now. And no, theres nothing pleasant about it at
all.
My brother and I have always been creative people. But the Council of Pleasant
City believes that creativity disrupts peace and order. That is why theyve created
Dreamscape, a virtual reality where they put creative people like us in. They say its a
perfect dream world. But if its so perfect, then why havent they taken it for
themselves? Why give it to potential criminals like us? And why has no one ever come
out of Dreamscape?

DEDICATION
(You know, you can skip this part of you want to. But if youre pretty confident
that: Ill get mad at you if you dont read this, youll see your name here, youre
incredibly bored enough to read this, youre part of my nonexistent fan club, and you
have the crazy idea that youll find my deepest darkest secrets here and youll use
them to blackmail me, or for whatever evil reason you have for reading this, then read
on.)
To Mom and Dad, youre not avid readers of my stories but you do tell other
people to read them. Im not even sure if you should read them because most of them
are love stories and horror stories. Youll wonder where I get my ideas and in the worst
case scenario, youll ask about the kissing scenes. So its really okay for me even if you
dont read this. And if you are reading this right now, you know I love both of you and
no, I dont know anything about kissing. Believe me.
To my favourite cousin, youve read a lot of my stories and told me theyre
terrible. And because great minds think alike, I agree with you (only after youve forced
me to read them again three years later and I am still yet to recover from the shock
and embarrassment that Ive written those kinds of stories). Im sure youre going to
read this too and like what you did with all the others, youre going to torture me with it.
I still dont know why I ever show you my stories.
To that special person who Ill choose to take with me if Dreamscape exists, this
story is for you. Weve always talked about virtual worlds and even if they do not
become invented, Ill still want to spend my lifetime with you in this ordinary world.
To my reader, Ive always wanted one.
PROLOGUE
You want a diamond ring? Youll get it before you can even blink. What about
real wings for flying up in the sky? Sure! Just tell us what size and colour you want them.
Dreamscape is the most perfect online virtual reality that has ever been created. It is a
world where you can become anyone or anything you want to be, where everything is
perfect and everyone is happy. The requirements arent that difficult. You can become
a resident of dreamscape if youre either creative or rebellious. Any person, who
reaches the age of eighteen, can receive a letter from the Council that says he or she
must enter Dreamscape for rehabilitation. And as weve repeatedly said, a person who
enters Dreamscape can get out of it anytime. But we dont blame you for worrying.
After all, no one has ever come out of Dreamscape.
Sincerely yours (We try to be),
The Council
