Theme Thursday - Mirror

I have read the House of Night series of books - well, the ones that have come out so far - and I am a huge fan. My two favorite characters are Damien and Jack, and I am writing a FanFic of the two of them. The link for the story is above, and, although it would make more sense to you if you read the books and/or the entire "chapter", here is an excerpt from the first "chapter":

His expression became puzzled and concerned. “Is there something wrong, Damien?” he asked, concern coloring his voice.

“Oh, no, no, no, no, no, not at all!!” I insisted. “They’re so beautiful.”

He grinned widely. “Really? What are they?”

“Well, there are plugs… and ribbons... and bows…”

His smile got wider. “It’s me!!”

I smiled back. “It sure is. There are also swirls and gorgeous twinkling stars,” I told him.

He giggled and his eyes filled with curiousity. “Like yours? Can I see??” he asked me eagerly. Shaunee whipped out a mirror and handed it to him. I looked at her with a question on my face, and she shrugged.

“You never know when you’ll need a mirror,” she explained.

I laughed. “Of course!!”

"So true, Twin!" Erin agreed, and I turned to her. Erin had pulled out her own mirror, and she had it in her hand and was fixing her hair. Shaunee took it and began fixing her own hair, and I laughed at the Twin-liness of it all.

Chuckling, I turned back to Jack, my figure still bent over his body. He gasped as I held the mirror up for him. He stared into the mirror for a few moments, unmoving, then he grabbed the mirror delicately with the hand that had been strangling the sheet and looked at his face from all sides. He scooted up higher so he was in more of a sitting position, and he examined his new tattoos.

A new tear rolled down his cheek. “The stars and swirls… They’re just like yours.” He choked out. “We do belong together.” A round of tears fell down his cheeks, happy tears this time.

I smiled at him as I felt tears begin to roll down my cheeks. “That’s exactly what I thought. And exactly what I know.” I told him around my tears.


  1. interesting...have never heard of the series...perhaps to check it out...and happy tt!

  2. Even when I have no idea what you are writing about it's still good. I hate you in that 'I don't really hate you but I should hate you because that is something that people usually hate other people for' kind of way.

  3. Another good example that well written posts can stand on their own fine feet even if the wider context is not a familiar one. Happy TT

  4. Great choice for the theme! Glad you are enjoying writing! :)

  5. Interesting fiction.
    I love good story telling.

    My daughter is in love with Adam!

  6. Sounds cool. I'll have to check out your fan fic.
