Technically speaking, my post involves two of my characters. The one the story revolves around, and the Mirror version of the other one I've used in Literary Challenges before (Antilles). I gotta say, that's some good reading there. Now, back to the Star Trek Destiny trilogy I picked up the other day.

Awww, dang...unfortunately I'm not really feeling this challenge. In a way, Alyosha did just confront something he sees as being like a twisted mirror of himself (and the Devidians undoubtedly felt the same way about him), so I feel like I just did something like this. Oh, well...there's next time.
I took a direction that would see my captain resolve his mirror issue.
Due to my Cagalli character not having a Mirror counterpart, I opted to have mirror Amuro captaining the ship I used back in the first challenge entry I remember making, the Prometheus class Epyon. This also let me surprise my mirror with all the gadgets she has made for my characters.
Definitely liked what you did there. I particularly enjoyed the way you were able to work humor into the dialogue without it coming off as farcical. It particularly makes you think, too, when you see how surprised the Mirror version of your captain is, that his supposedly meek and passive counterpart is able to pull a trick like beaming him into the brig. It also seems that both are plagued by a lack of foresight that got them into trouble: the Mirror not insisting on doing the transporting himself, and the "canon" captain assuming that having the Mirror's command staff in confinement would be enough and not acting to destroy whatever portal the Mirror came through.
