The Mirror Snake

Postby Transreal Clouden » Sun Feb 26, 2017 4:20 pm

Hi, I'm sorry if this is the wrong forum for this but I'm reading Silmaril and I got to see the Mirror Snake for the nth time in glowfic so far. I'm really curious about where the idea came from does anyone know?

Dreamward, I'm pretty sure! A portal snake one time ate another portal snake and then it was no longer in Dreamward, cue shenanigans where it eats other people and transports them away.

Yeah, the first few portalface demon boxen involved Holly and Crystal

I forget who, but a clever forum user suggested it as a barely-plausible method of travel. It somehow became standard shorthand for "act of plot."

Honestly the prevalence of portalsnaking as a plot device kind of suggests that portalface demons are, like, intensely cannibalistic.

There might just be one particular portalsnake template who really likes eating other portalsnakes. (It's probably a purple.)
