Author has written 15 stories for Naruto, Inuyasha, and Yu Yu Hakusho.
I put two new stories up! I know I really shouldn't be starting any new ones with all the ones I have to continue, but these aren't exactly new ones. They're ones I've worked on for a long time and I hope ya'll like 'em. I will update again soon!
I am very sory for my long absence, everyone! I meant to go on a small hiatus, but time continued to roll by...and a year had passed before I had realized it. I'm very sorry for leaving ya'll hanging on my stories. I don't have the next chapters ready- again, I apologize- but I do plan to finish them. They're my babies...I have to see them through. I hope that ya'll can take comfort in that and enjoy what I have managed to write in the passing months...
Hello all! I'm Reflection of a Broken Dream. You can call me Dream for short, if you want. (I wish I had picked a shorter name or one with a better nickname...but all the ones I tried before it were taken...;.; )
I love writing fanfics and reading them, though I can't get on the internet and post them/read them as often as I would like. (I can get on about once a month, unless I am miraculously given the chance to get on sooner.)
I kind of lean towards Shino x Hinata from Naruto, Kagome x Sesshoumaru from Inuyasha, and Kagome x Kurama/Youko from Inuyasha and Yu Yu Hakusho when I write my fics. (I like keeping with the canon storylines when I can and the character's personalities to make it a little more realistic, in a sense. Inuyasha, Naruto, and Yu Yu Hakusho are the ones I used to watch a lot, so I know more about them and the characters than most of the other anime I've watched.)
I have been experimenting with other pairings, though...such as Hinata x Naruto, Hinata x Neji, Hinata x Kakashi, Hinata x Sasuke, Hinata x Gaara, Naruto x Gaara, Naruto x Sasuke, Inuyasha x Sesshoumaru, Kagome x Hiei, and Hiei x Kurama/Youko. (Just to name a few.) I'm also writing on different series, like Fruits Basket (Kyo x Tohru, Kyo x Yuki), Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicles (Sakura x Shaoran, Fai x Kurogane), Vampire Knight (Yuuki x Kaname, Yuuki x Zero), Cardcaptor Sakura (Shaoran x Sakura, Toya x Yuki), and Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro (Neuro x Yako). I would like to do others, but I need more materials for research first...and I need to see the rest of series mentioned above, too...;,;
-A Little Bit About Me-
I am twenty two, living with my parents, divorced (ex-hubby is running to keep from paying child support), and I have a two-year old. (I'm not giving you my real name, though!) I can't seem to get a job because of the stupid economy...but I plan on getting one soon. (I don't think it will interfere with my getting a chapter of 'Arranged Marriage' out a month, but just in case I do hit a delay, that's what's holding it up.) I took an at-home course in medical billing and coding (hate it) a while back and I graduated from the program with a certificate. I'm going to study up again to refresh my memory and see if I can get a job in that field...
What I would really like to do is go to college for art and get on with Tokyo Pop while also somehow living in the same area I am now. (Very far from California.) Stupid unattainable dream, I know. (Dream big and aim for the stars- that is what I've done since I was little.) But...I would be glad just to go to college (that option's looking bleak) and get a job helping to make ads or commercials or something like that- something to pass the time and hone my skills (I'm a self-taught artist starving for instruction in that area) until I can make it into the anime/manga career I so desire. I wouldn't mind writing scripts for anime or manga, either...that might be fun... (I also enjoy writing, in case that's not obvious. lol. XD)
I apologize for not getting on the internet any more than I do; my reasoning for that is that I don't have it at home, I don't have the money to get it, and I can't drive, so I don't get to the library very often. Actually, most times, I post my updates using (really bad) fast food place internet you get to use when you eat there. I'm not complaining, though. Bad internet is better than no internet.
If I could make a short poem to sum up my past, it would be...
I am the girl with Broken Dreams,
- Reflection of a Broken Dream
That was me in High School...and sometimes now... My family supports me, and some people online...but I don't have that many friends that I can turn to otherwise. (I'm actually kinda shy in real life...I find it easier to talk how I want to and express myself on the internet. I guess I'm more of a writer than a talker. -Shrugs- )

My favorite pairings vary. I have seen parts of some series and all of others. (For example, I have seen and I own all of Vampire Knight and Vampire Knight: Guilty on DVD, and I've only seen the first three episodes of Vampire Princess Miyu.)
I may randomly pop out with a fanfic of one of the series listed above.
To conclude my little section about me and my favorite anime/manga and what I write about, I think I'll compose a list of Japanese words that I like to use and their meanings, in case I use them in a fic without realizing it or posting the meaning up at the top. (And I'll add in some names that I know the English translations for.) (They are in alphabetical order.)
- Reflection of a Dream's Word Translations -
Ai - Love
(I didn't do all of the translations by myself, so if you see an error in the translations, just contact me and I'll change it ASAP.)
Disclaimer: I do not own any of the series listed above, the characters, or Tokyo Pop.
