    forgotten word

    I have on a tip of my tongue- a person who doesn't believe or see clearly difficulty we will be facing trying to acheive sth, it is a compound noun and the first part is "dream...." Often used in negative contexts: "do not be such dream....." wrecker, killer - nope, none of them. Sick, I knew it! Help!

    Re: forgotten word

    Thanks. none of them. But you know what? It must be very insignificant word and the hell with it :) I will remember to send this looser here when it decides to come back to my head, though.

    Re: forgotten word

    No it is not it is more along the lines of dream killer, someone who destroys somebody else's dreams by bringing them back to hard reality and showing how unattainable they are, in a word you are a dream.... when you do not believe in someone. Dream snacher - new word to learn, thanks!

    Dream killer seems a good choice - but my memory has produced dream breaker.
