    Summary

    The Nein stare at replicas of themselves, detail-perfect right down to their outfits—except for some details which are just wrong. Instead of Allura's fanciful staff, mirror-Caleb wields a sleek, elegant scepter that would not look out of place in the hands of a Volstrucker. Mirror-Beau's eyes are red pools that glow even from this distance. Mirror-Fjord has too many eyes for anyone's comfort, and mirror-Veth's are goblin-yellow, her teeth bared in a pointed snarl. Mirror-Caduceus wears no armor, his staff a withered husk. Mirror-Jester's hands glow with the wrong color magic, as do mirror-Essek's.

    And Mirror-Yasha, though white-haired, wields Skingorger instead of the Holy Avenger—and her grin is as familiar as the scar bisecting Beau's chest.

    Beau clenches her fists. "I'm going to fucking hate this, aren't I?"
