My goal here is simple, I want to discuss the subject of dreams, a goal that defines their actions throughout the story. Not all characters have them, but I like the ones that do. One of my character is questioned about whether or not she has a dream, because the other guy's looking for the moral high ground, and she responds that her dream is to marry the person she loves and live a happy life with them. She's mocked for this, but I think it's a perfectly fine one... for a real-life person. Let's be honest, it's not nearly as exciting as "I'm going to become a mafioso to rid my city of drugs and corruption" or "I'm going to be the kind of hero that can save everyone in front of me." So, for the topic: Are there dreams that shouldn't be included in high stakes adventure stories because they just don't fit, or can any dream be used to fit any scenario? Does it even matter, so long as it's used for good character building? Personally, I'd lean more towards the second or third answer, but that's just me.
