The images we see in the mirror are the pure incarnates of evil. They are only allowed to exist in the area reflected in the glass. To them, life is like a never-ending hell, rotting away in the same room day after day. The only refuse from this purgatory is death, and the only way for them to die, sad to say, is if YOU die. Fortunately, they are bound by a code. You are their master, and they must mirror your every movement and expression. To do otherwise would break an unbreakable law, unraveling the space-time continuum. However, there is a loophole, and it can only be triggered by you, the master. To force them into error is to free them from their contract; after you let them out of your view, you’re on your own. Know this: when you watch them, they’re watching you back. They’re watching.

And they’re thinking.

    this is a fragment of a full story, it is the first part. The second part is called “The Mirror” if you read the two of them in order, it makes much more sense.

    when it says forced into error…does that mean you have to trick them into dying or trick them into being unable to reflect something?
    cuz i dont think its possible to trick them into not reflecting something you do. and when they do get out…wouldnt they hate us so much for making them reflect what we do that they would wanna hurt us?

    “after you let them out of your view, you’re on your own”
    What, like every time I don’t look at a reflectable surface? When I have my back to a mirror?

    So if I move, it moves. So if I date, does it? How do reflections interact?

    The story of reflections always reminds me of the Fish in the mirror. When I get home, I’ll make a topic about it on the forums, as I need the book it’s in to make an accurate post.

    The best way to trick your reflection is by quickly grabbing a strand of hair on your head and holding a measuring stick to it. If this is done fast enough, your reflection will not have sufficient time to grab the same one and will thus be released.

    you won’t beleive me but my dad went to an antique auction and bought an old mirror (he has an antique buisness) I put the mirror in the foyer and i was admiring the old frame it was very elegant and when i turned my head from it my perphral vision caught a movement that wasn’t normal it moved after i moved my head, we later found out that the mirror belonged to an old women in the 1800’s that died by a heart attack near the mirror. Now that’s some Creepy Pasta!

    I’m afraid of mirrors. Cannot stand them. Unfortunately the bedroom in my apartment has a double-mirror for a closet door and we aren’t allowed to take it out O_O

    I don’t understand how mirror stories frighten people because the scientific facts just ruin the “illusion”. It’s like, an inch thick piece of reflective metal isn’t it? It doesn’t hold any supernatural powers and your reflection is exactly that, a reflection. I’m sorry, pasta, but you fail to deliver. What if I looked into a puddle? or the metal on the back of my ipod? What about the whole questioning of “the sky is blue because it was the water of the oceans being reflected”?
    I just don’t know.

    Besides, your shadow is far more scary than your reflection.
