Project Mirror is a project started by Arkatox that was originalled called the Dark Mirror Saga, or DMS. Now the DMS is just a small part of it, taking place in the Mirror Universe. Arkatox's other epics are also now a part of Project Mirror.
Long before Project Mirror was Project Mirror, Arkatox was inspired by several BZPower authors, including the author of The Chronicles of Huna Nui, to start writting an epic. It was about a Ko-Matoran named Jonall. He wrote out the prologue and started on chapter 1, but eventually quit.
Sometime later he joined BZPower with the name MakutaZarnax, after a character in another epic he had started writting called The Founding of a Brotherhood. This was about a secret organization called the Arkatox Brotherhood, named after a Makuta who died. Arkatox's friend StarKilledUnleashed had come up with the name Arkatox. The story was toiled with for a bit and was cancelled and uncancelled several times.
MakutaZarnax eventually changed to Vican - Toa of Shadows, and stuck with different version of the name Vican for a long time, before finally switching full-time to Arkatox, which by now he was known all over the internet as.
About this time, Arkatox remembered a short story that he once wrote and posted on BZPower, called To Rebuild a World. The subtitled had been "The Sequel to Dark Mirror", because it had taken place right afterword, in the Mirror Universe. This and a comment he had received on BZP before the Dataclysm deleted To Rebuild a World gave him an idea. He could start his very own writing universe that takes place in the Mirror Universe! He called it the Dark Mirror Saga
After coming up with and writing a few ideas, Arkatox discovered that in order for this to work, he would also have to include his previous writing works. But then, of course, this universe couldn't be known as the Dark Mirror Saga, because most of his previous writing works did not take place in the Mirror Universe. Thus, after quite a bit of thought, he came up with the name Project Mirror.
Arkatox got a tiny bit of inspiration for having all of his epics tie in from The C.I.R.C.L.E., and even toyed with the idea of creating his own Wiki for Project Mirror. Arkatox discarded the idea, but decided that if any other BZPower authors wanted to help with the project, they could.
