In addition to Longing and Dreaming, a story usually begins when the hero or heroine is born. When that happens, it is a memorable scene in the tale, and it can be a miracle after a terrible event or something that sets the story in motion. Sometimes the birth can provoke the antagonist's hatred(in extreme case, the antagonist's faction/nation declare the war on the country/kingdom/village/town where the hero was born), but it usually inspires positivity, particularly when the said hero was destined to vanquish evil.
