Hello, everyone. I am Dreamnorn, but you can also call me Dream. I'm a college student who attends UCI and a lover of all kinds of fandoms and things that inspire the writer in me. I write original works, too, but none that I plan to publish anytime soon... after all, they have to be refined first!
My current inspired fandom is Yu-Gi-Oh, a childhood love that was kindled again by re-involvement with its Abridged Series and meeting the famed Little Kuriboh in person. Of course, I also like a bunch of other things -- a few examples would be those in the categories listed above for the fandoms I've written for, though there's plenty more than that.
Name: Dreamnorn, or Dream
Age: Late teens
Gender: ...Still not telling you. Nope, nope. I never lost that mischievous side of me.
Feel free to PM me and stuff!

The Lion and the Mouse
So, I'm an experimental sort of person. This has a LOT of things I'm playing with -- an active first person (like we're seeing through the eyes of the character, not having the story told for us), genderbending the characters people traditionally see as semes in this fandom, a regular updating schedule... this is gonna be intense. Oh yes. I'll try to update every other week!
Where the Heart Is
My OTP had to get a story eventually... well, here it is! And it's set in college because that's half of what's on my mind these days. Being a freshman is tough, especially with a quarter system, but I'll survive with the help of thieves. Marik is so oblivious, it makes me happy. I'll try to update every other week!
That's right, everyone! I'm back and ready to write for Ask Nations! The first chapter, I warn you, is just the what-you-have-to-do of it, but the rest are all from the perspective of whatever character the chapter centers around. I just reread all the questions y'all gave for America... you guys are totally insane! XD But I'm working on it, now, and hopefully this will re-attract attention. I'll try to update once a month!

What I Hate About You
Puppyshipping makes me squeal. It's definitely in my top Yugioh shippings, along with Thiefshipping and Deathshipping. I really like pairings that have characters seem very different on the outside, but inwardly, they have more in common than they know. Anyhow! This is a fic with Seto being in denial and shit. And Joey (sort of?) semes. Just kidding, but really. It's cute. I don't know. I was squeeing while I wrote it and I hope other Puppyshipping fans enjoy it. c:
Inspired by my cat cuddling and licking my puppy's ear when she was having a bad dream. Therefore, expect cute. Lots of it. I REGRET NOTHING.
For the love of Mama Luigi, don't read this and judge my other work by it. XD I promise, I have real writing, too! That being said, I wrote this on a high of 1) finding the world's weirdest recipe, 2) having stayed up all the previous night after playing Amnesia: The Dark Descent, and 3) eating cheesy bean taquitos. So... read at your own risk?
The Right Words
This was a fun exercise in perspective! It started out as me writing a random Romano rant (try saying that ten times fast!), but then I read some Spanish fanficiton and was inspired to incorporate some newbie Spanish mistakes into the fanficiton, and, well... one thing led to another. It can be read from either perspective first; I just put Romano as the first chapter since his was the first I wrote.
Laughter in the Rain
It came to me on a rainy day... what else can I say? This couple is fucking adorable.
What the Junk?
One day, in AP World history, I was minding my own damn business when all of a sudden I was assaulted by the word "junk." I laughed hysterically from my spot in the front of the class and my teacher gave me the most intrigued, serious look he could. I still laughed. This is the result of that fateful encounter.
Just a little cracky birthday present centered around my third favorite Hetalia pairing at the time, USUK. FLYING MINT BUNNY FOREVER, DUDES.
Sun Grown Tomatoes
Spamano? Awesome. Belarussia? Incest. Belamano? Priceless. I wanted to try my hand at my first crack pairing fanfiction, and somehow these two seemed so perfect that I simply couldn't resist.
CORALINE WAS AMAZING. In the first two days of obtaining the disk, I watched it how many times? Five? Damn, when I obsess, I obsess hard! I must admit, Wybie was incredibly adorable, so naturally I felt the need to write a little story from his perspective. As hard as it was doing a first-person through his eyes (the adorable little weirdo), I think I did a good job.
I Would Cry, and He Would Smile
Someone actually once read this and told me that she thought it was a sadist!Arnold fic with Helga... well. I hope you aren't in it for that, because you aren't getting it. XD It's fluffy. Like. The fluffy fluff that fluffs. But it's also quite sad. So... yes.
Okay, I'll be perfectly honest: Hey Arnold! is amazing. I just love that show. And Helga/Arnold is probably the coolest, sweetest, most dynamic balancing act of a pairing that I have ever seen. And it's canon too! So, I had to make something about it. Considering these characters are nine years old, though, I basically decided to make it more like "friendshipping" than romance.
Back in the days of my active participation in the Spyro fandom, Spynder was easily my Spyro OTP. When DOTD came out, I was stoked! But then... they went and butchered Cynder's personality from the previous installment... I mean, what the hell? So my 13- or 14-year-old self made to rewrite a scene from DOTD, with more of Cynder's original character intact! And yet, ironically, Sparx is OOC at the end... heh. My bad?
Can You Hear Me?
When I first read the fifth book of Warrior Cats, I loved Snowkit. Even though I think he only had one or two lines of dialogue (all slurred because he was deaf), I really liked his sweetness and innocence. I wanted him to become a warrior, to beat his disability... reading his death scene scarred me more than those of Silverstream or Bluestar, and it reminded me just how precious life is. I wept on and off for what was essentially days. I needed an outlet... so this is what I made. I wrote it when I was 13, and even though I hate songfics now, it's still one of my favorites. At least to me, it reeks of raw emotion. Can you hear it?
