Mirror of Erised

Post by Pel » Mon Aug 18, 2008 12:02 am

So I have to reread Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone for an English project, and I was reading the section about the Mirror of Erised. I remember reading somewhere that the words carved around the top were the mirror image of 'I show not your face but your heart's desire,' and 'Erised' is simply 'desire.' I was wondering, if you were to look into the Mirror of Erised, what would you see?

I'd probably see myself holding a black book with the word "Eclipse" on the spine Laughing , and perhaps Edward (or someone like him) standing in the background.

What about you?

I would see myself standing onstage singing a duet with a beautiful man...and then the curtain would fall and people would be cheering.

Wow, really lame lol

I would probably see myself and my ex talking to each other and just being friends. I want that more than anything. :(
and I would see Edward ditching Bella for me. :D
and I would see my ex-English teacher who was the greatest person to ever walk this earth alive and well.

and I would probably see the Twilight saga in hardback from every characters point of view on my bookshelf. :D

and i like this smiley: :mrgreen:

I would see myself in a warm looking cozy type room surrounded by books and a REALLY good sterio and music collection with my best friend, and Alec (heheh...my twi-incorp) with Edward playing the Piano (hopeless romantic, eh?) with NO hw, just spare time :D or maybe, best yet...FINISHED HW! oh, and a collection of really challenging, pretty songs with good lyrics to learn (maybe with me as accompaniment <haha> for edward?) :lol:

I was watching Pirates of the Carribbean today and was wondering what the compass would point to. I guess it's the same question as this though...

I really don't know what i want most in life.
I guess i would be standing on the greek shores with a husband and a bunch of adopted children. Really nothing too major or exciting. Maybe what i want most is just to have a happy life. =]

Not that i dont want to do some crazy things cuz ohho i DO

If I were to look into the Mirror of Erised, I'd probably see one of the following:

1. A visualization of me being as happy as I can ever be.
2. My husband and me with a couple of kids and our cats.
3. Ewan McGregor and me. :twisted:
4. Edward Cullen and me.
5. The world of Twilight being a reality with me as a member of the Cullen family.

I would see myself as a successful, educated business woman with a man who loves me passionately. I don't want to marry just because I am ready to settle down with someone. I want the flames to ignite! Cheesy, yes, but that's what I would see. :P
