So, as customary, it takes place in a world where all fictional characters can go after their story ended where Sarah Williams and Christine Daaé room together, just over their respective stalkers. It focuses on the Sarah / Jareth relationship and also on Sarah's sudden dreams about a possible future and how they all cope with that.
Tropes found in this fic:
- All Just a Dream: The naming trope of the series. But it also heavily implies Dreaming of Things to Come.
- Convenient Coma: Jareth enters one in a chapter which convinces Sarah to take the invitation of his family.
- Damsel in Distress: Sarah when Mr. Teatime came to visit.
- Dreaming of Things to Come: The setup. Or at least dreaming of things Jareth and the fangirls insist on.
- Dude, She's Like, in a Coma!: Oberon's suggestion on how to break a "death like sleep" is trying this. Titania is quick to point out that he is really not the person to give relationship advice.
- Happily Married: Sarah to Jareth but also Christine to an unspecified someone in dream sequences... Maybe even implied Babies Ever After as almost every such dream features more children. Oberon and Titania.
- Indecisive Medium: This is a fic that can go "and the art went all straight".
- Massive Multiplayer Crossover: As expected but adds even more Discworld and Shakespeare.
- Meta Fic
- Mythology Gag: Yes. It has shout out's to other Buildingverse works. Like Erik complaining about being pulled into dreams without his consent (Roommates's Such Stuff... arc).
- Order Versus Chaos: The Auditors really don't approve the chaos that is the 'Verse in general.
- Papa Wolf: Jareth in the dreams, where he promises bogging and other such punishments to neighborhood bullies.
- Postmodern Magik: Did you know that fairy rulers have telephones?
- Recursive Fanfiction: A Girls Next Door fic.
- Stealth Hi/Bye: Oberon.
- Shout-Out: To Persephone and Hades a lot in the future dreams.
- Tangled Family Tree: Every magical being is related. Are you surprised that Jareth is also related to the Shakespearian fairies?
