Other Notes: Created/based on “The Mirror Crack’d”, a round-robin story started by Ms. Cricket and added to by Ms. Sam, Ms. Cassandra, Ms. Ashe, Ms. Demon, Ms. Katie, Ms. Tara, Ms. Kim, and Ms. Jay.
The ‘Verse was expanded by Ms. Cricket, with many other side-stories written by, but not limited to – Ms. Adi, Ms. Beth, Ms. Debz, Ms. Demon, Ms. Sam, Ms. Sara, and Ms. Tara. Continually expanding Universe.*
*Meaning it is not finished in its tales, and will continue to expand in different directions by many different authors, probably.
Many readers/writers have stated their own personal investment in the Mirrorverse, including how much they enjoy reading it.
Tests have been conducted on human subjects by the Alternative-American Psychological Association (AAPA) in a New York-based study. The subjects were given print-outs of the Mirrorverse stories by Ms. Cricket Spinner, while their neurological activity was closely monitored.
Results were as follows:
Marked increase of: endorphins, serotonin, dopamine, epinephrine, norepinephrine, melatonin, and other neurotransmitters related to pleasure in the brain.
Remarks after finished reading, with 100% of the test subjects expressing their joy from the series, with 87% stating it was “better than crack”. (Test subjects chosen on basis of sobriety and drug-free lifestyle. Scientists remain puzzled by the expression, due to subjects never trying crack.) [Citation needed.]
Charts made by many subjects suggest that works by Ms. Spinner were seen to remain of exemplary quality throughout the readings.
The Alternative-American Psychological Association (AAPA) – nicknamed the “Spooky League” by some – have declared the study a success. They have an ongoing series of tests in readings of Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, Maureen Johnson, John Green, Garth Nix, and Jane Austen. Each subject’s reactions vary from subject to subject, all rating their readings from 8-10, on a 1-10 scale. [Citation needed.]
Timeline In an interview with Ms. Spinner, the timeline of Mirrorverse was revealed to the interviewer on August 29, 2010.
______“When we sat down to talk, after we inquired after each other’s well-being, we fell into conversation as if we had been already in the middle of it. She was kind enough to explain a few things I wasn’t quite familiar with, as well as her enjoyment of the Batman comics, what new projects she is taking on, and possibly returning to editing of past collaborations. After some time of talking, I remembered quickly that I was to inquire after the timeline, if she would be so kind to put one together for her readers. After a sip of her drink, she smiled and said, ‘Sure, of course. Here, it goes like this…’ She pulled out a small notebook and a pen, and began to map out the timeline of her writings, spanning thirteen years total. My dear readers, I am quite pleased to give you this timeline here.’

Oh wow, Tara! You and Cricket certainly were busy!!!! Thank you for this though, it will DEFINITELY come in handy for referencing what happens/happened when, and who arrived when, etc.
For example, it's already helped me realize that I CAN go ahead with something in my sequel for "Stop the Insanity" which I didn't think I could do because I thought it had already finished. Yeah, I know, cryptic/confusing, but, you'll all see, lol.

Just an odd little note:
The Lady Amenti
Pandora is a technopath and private investigator who was driving when the curse hit her, causing her to crash. She's currently in a wheelchair, and, along with research, has taken the path of characters such as Logan Cale and Barbara Gordon, using her hacking skills to solve mysteries, usually antiSpooky, using the handle Amenti, the Ancient Egyptian underworld. She runs a forum for information that has been shown to be nortiously resistant to interferance.
Only three people know she is Amenti- a deranged Spooky who thinks he's a superhero, her mother, and her amused cousin, who acts as a spy.
Shawn Ryerson does freelance work for her, and the Abhorsen Agency has been known to trade information, in the main series and the Asylum AU.
