    A dream come true

    Hello,

    Could someone please tell me which of the following truly expresses the nuances of "a dream come true?"

    Example: "This is a dream come true. It is the fruition of everyone's hard work."

    1. This is a dream (that has) come true.
    2. This is a dream (I have made) come true.
    3. This is a dream (I have had) come true.

    Re: A dream come true

    I thought of other applications in this form. Do these all sound natural?

    1. It is a supply run short.
    2. It is a thunder hit the lake.
    3. It is AI defeated humans.
    4. It is a glass ceiling stood in the way.

    No. A dream come true is a set phrase.
