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
neverending hell, rotting away in the same room day after day. The only release
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, unravelling 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.

The next time you're alone in your room, turn down the lights. Think of
something on your body that varies in length, such as hair. It must be clearly
viewable from your perspective. Grab a ruler and, looking in the mirror, quickly
grab a hair at random; you must confuse it. Hold it in position as best you can
and note the length. Look down. Yours will be different.

Don't look back up.

Don't turn your back to that mirror ever again.

The next time you wake up groggy and tired, don't move. Take a glance at your
mirror; if you're lucky, you might catch a smile.

All mirrors are actually windows to another world.

This world cannot be reached, and shouldn't be reached, as all our mirror-selves
are extremely malicious.

Try watching the edge of the mirror after sneaking into a room.

If you're good enough, you can see your reflection, pressing against the glass.

Ever wonder why the vampire myths say they don't cast reflections in mirrors?

That's because a mirror isn't a mirror to them. It's a door.

Don't delve deep into their business, do not draw their attention, do not invite
their wrath. And if you do, cover every single mirror you own.

You ever wonder just WHY people don't like mirrors so much? It's not because
they're afraid of the strange world on the other side, no. I'ts because, deep
down, they know that a mirror reflects THIS world, just as it is. Too look and
see yourself as you really are, that is what everyone's afraid of. The truth.

That doesn't mean there's not a world on the other side, though. And those that
inhabit it would dearly like to cross over. If you get yourself alone in a room
with a mirror, dim or extinguish the lights and generally make the atomosphere
calm enough, they might just stop their charade and talk with you. They'll
usually offer you some sort of deal - vast wealth, special powers, love,
happiness, whatever you want, in exchange for a few years with them in your
place, and you in theirs.

The catch, though, is that you've only got their word that they'll let you back
out when the time is up. And it's not really THEM making the offer, but YOU. So
before you accept the mirror's offer, ask yourself... if it were YOU trapped in
the mirror, and you got out... would YOU keep your word?

The Third of December is coming On the 3rd of December in the evening when it's
close to 11:34.. if you just happen to have a hand held mirror, something about
the size of your face. Cover your face with the mirror, walk into the bathroom,
turn the light on, and stand in front of the mirror. Do this preferably before
11:34, so when 11:34 hits raise the mirror upwards, somewhere about your head.
What is in the mirror will not be staring back at you, nor will it be your

It is preferable you never lower that hand held mirror.. because then it will
realize what you've done.....

At 12:17 am, on any given night, arises the opportunity to awaken an alternate
soul. The most common way of viewing them? Through a mirror.

It is through said medium that the process must take place. Begin at exactly
midnight. By no light but that of a single candle, stand before the selected
mirror. For ten minutes you must concentrate in silence, focused entirely on
your reflection. Do not look away from the eyes; for it will be interpreted as
weakness and you will be overcome.

After ten minutes have passed you must draw blood to smear in a line across the
eyes of your reflection. Doing so will blind it, and you will watch as your own
features begin to warp. Slowly, gradually, they will mutate into a frightening
creature--one beyond the comprehension of those who have not experienced it. You
must not look away through the entirety of the change.

Soon the writhing movements of the image will cease. By now an echoing, inhuman
sound will resound all around you--the creature will begin to ease toward the
mirror's glass. You must keep watching as it approaches.

If you do not extinguish the candle at exactly 12:17, the creature will escape.

Be warned, should you succeed; through any polished surface--be it mirror, wood,
or window--your reflection will always be watching.
