I was just thinking...


What do you think Severus Snape saw in the mirror? Lily probably? Rainbowlove 01:45, February 21, 2010 (UTC)

Most likely

He probably saw himself with Lily. Married maybe, but at least together.

Reflecting spells

In most of the video game adaptations of HP1, we can see that the mirror also reflects the spells (actually this is the only way to defeat Prof. Quirrell). Is this considered canon? If so, it should be mentioned in the article.--El Profeta Vespertino 21:26, June 22, 2010 (UTC)

If it is not specifically refuted in a higher canon, then it is true (Hence why Bellatrix is counted as fighting in the Battle of the Astronomy Tower). I'd put it in the BTS. --JKoch Ravenclawcrest (Owl Me!) 22:21, June 22, 2010 (UTC)

Order of Phoenix Film

Where in the movie is the mirror destroyed? I don't remember that part. --BachLynn23 17:53, July 30, 2010's (UTC)

The mirror isn't actually destroyed. In Harry's visions while he is being possessed, he looks into a mirror (it could be the Mirror, but I'm not sure) and sees Lord Voldemort as his reflection. When he fights back, he stabs at the mirror with his wand breaking it to pieces. --JKoch Ravenclawcrest (Owl Me!) 18:00, July 30, 2010 (UTC)
So does that mean the statement under 'behind the scenes' should be changed or taken out. It says that it was destroyed in the film version. --BachLynn23 18:02, July 30, 2010 (UTC)

Ok, so it definitely looks like the mirror, but is this all happening in his head, or does he actually physically break the mirror? --BachLynn23 18:13, July 30, 2010 (UTC)
It dies all happen in his head though, so the mirror is not destroyed. --JKoch Ravenclawcrest (Owl Me!) 18:19, July 30, 2010 (UTC)

Eris was the greek goddess of Desire. Could the name have also come from her? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 98.70.38.99 (talkcontribs).

Mirror Enscriptoin

Whatching through the movies start to finish again and a thought popped into my mind as I've been noting some symbolisms. "What does the inscription on the mirror say?" This is of course reffering to the first movie after harry sneaks into the restricted section of the library. And if it's not english could some one still take a look? Maybe we can crack the code. Here's what I think it is: * "erisea sitd rurn oyt ube cafrii ovr on ivoby"


  • This is only what I think and I could very well be wrong so this is subject to change as others observe perhaps better than I.
I don't know if perhaps the film one differs from the book one, which was shown on Pottermore to say "Erised stra ehru oyt ube cafru oyt on wohsi", which backwards is "I show not your face but your heart's desire". --Hunnie Bunn (Owl me!) 23:49, February 7, 2013 (UTC)
