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.

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.
