    Me with Orlando would be just fine. :D

    Seriously though, I would see myself with family (son & husband) and my college degree finally in my hands.

    If me with Orlando Bloom was the best the mirror could do, I'd be very happy with that. hehe

    Arwen, I should have figured you'd say that. hehe

    If I was to look deeply into the mirror, I would most likely see myself and my family without my little brother. Either that or I would see myself and my brother getting a long. This would make me the most happiest I could be because even though I hate my brother so much, I wish we could just get along.

    ooh, good question.

    I would hope to see just my reflection and nothing else - which would mean that I am content and happy with what I already have.

    I just read on another forum that Erised is Desire spelled backwards. Now why didn't I figure that out awhile ago. :p

    If I look deeply into the mirror I'll see the world free of hunger and misery and everyone is happy and my family is happy and my brother and I get good grades and I stop stammering and my eyesight improves (right eye,700 degrees left eye,550 degrees)

    But it will evantually stabilize as I grow older

    you know the whole inscription over the mirror is backwards, right?

    Erised stra ehru oyt ube cafru oyt on wohsi = I show not your face but your hearts desire.

    Took me a couple times through to get that.

    The mirror of Erised would probably show me in a Professor's Toga, on the horison a setting sun over a stretch of Savannah, somewhere in Africa. Can't imagine I would be alone though...

    Myself...in a world of fantasy where magic exists. I don't care which fantasy world. As long as it has magic, creatures and Succubus or Nymphs. Oh and me living for a very long time =]
