* In the ''Literature/WarriorCats'' series, many dreams are {{Dead Person Conversation}}s, but there are a couple times when living cats speak in dreams:
** In the story about how the Moonstone was found, Wind appears in Mothflight's dream - the [=StarClan=] cats tell her to allow Mothflight back into the Clan, and she agrees.
** Leafpool is guided by Feathertail, a [=StarClan=] cat, into Willowpaw's dream; they decide how to teach Willowpaw about [=StarClan=], since her own mentor doesn't believe in them.
** Jayfeather has the ability to walk in other cats' dreams. He puts it to use occasionally, once by walking in [[spoiler:Ashfur]]'s dream to speak ''privately'' to him (to persuade him not to reveal a secret), once to talk to Kestrelflight to figure out where there's some herbs (though Kestrelflight thought it was just an ordinary dream), and many times for DreamSpying, listening to conversations between the other medicine cats and [[DeadPersonConversation their Clan's ancestors]].

May shade into DreamingOfThingsToCome, if the other person tells of or shows the future, or DreamingOfTimesGoneBy, for the past. DreamSpying is particularly likely to overlap, letting the dreamer see the present with the other as a guide. May be mistaken for DreamingTheTruth, or if a DeadPersonConversation, be [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane indistinguishable]].

* In Creator/TerryPratchett's ''OnlyYouCanSaveMankind'', Johnny's dreams let him talk with Kirsty -- and find her afterward, when they are awake.
* In LoisMcMasterBujold's ''[[Literature/{{Chalion}} The Paladin of Souls]]'', a god appears to Ista in her dreams while looking like his priest, dy Cabon. After the god has finished speaking with her, he leaves and dy Cabon's awareness fills the dream body. Sadly, as soon as Ista figures out that this is a true dream, each the other's, she wakes up. Thus she learns that dy Cabon is alive, but not where he is or whether anyone else has survived.

* In RobertJordan's ''WheelOfTime'', ''Tel'aran'rhiod'' is an alternate reality that people can access through their dreams. Most only enter it briefly and unconsciously without special help, but those with a talent for Dreamwalking can make the transition willingly and channellers can physically transport themselves there.
