Mirror Yang: Free-dohm? That is one of our worship-words.

Nice, Marc. But then again I always love TOS references.

[quote:post_uid0]Kira: It wouldn't have been a close call if the three of you had stopped laughing long enough to rescue me sooner.

Marc: We couldn't help it after you misheard the charge as "being a bi--[/quote:post_uid0]
Favorite part.

This one had me chuckling.

[quote:post_uid0]Kawalsky: See, the Quantum Mirror isn't like a regular dimensional browser. In fact, you have to channel surf millions of alternate universes to find the one you're looking for.
Daniel: No "Favourites" folder? No "History" listing? No dimensional listings channel?
Kawalsky: Actually, your last position gets wiped when you turn the mirror off, so you have to surf for it again.
[pause]
Daniel: This remote sucks.
Kawalsky: I don't think they ever got to version 2.0.[/quote:post_uid0]
Heh. I don't get Stargate jokes, but I do get computer jokes. Nice one, Nan.[/color:post_uid0]

[color=#000000:post_uid0]My computer is senile, so I was writing somewhat from experience. ;)

GREAT work Derek, Kira, Marc, and IJDGAF!

Will Akili be making further appearances, or can we assume she escaped in the confusion? ;)[/color:post_uid0]

[color=#000000:post_uid0]All the fivers are wonderful. My very favorite bits out of them were

[quote:post_uid0]Sisko: Judging from your outfit, it's a place with a ghastly sense of fashion.
Mirror O'Brien: Our clothes fit our personalities just fine.
Sisko: I was afraid of that.
...
Mirror Garak: Bad news, Intendant. No matter how much I flog the slaves, their morale refuses to improve.
...
Mirror Mira: ...
Mirror Garak: (nodding) Shall I put another notch in your belt on my way out?
Mirror Kira: It's over there somewhere with the rest of my clothes.[/quote:post_uid0]

[quote:post_uid0]Riker: So Data's my first officer now?
B4: Actually, I'm not Data.
Riker: Sure, whatever.
...
Tomalak: So what didn't strike a chord? We figured you'd waltz right through our simulated future.
Riker: It was Minuet who made me face the music.
Tomalak: But we chose a love interest who was canon.
Riker: Too bad she was just a jazzed up hologram.[/quote:post_uid0]

[quote:post_uid0]Kawalsky: Jaffa? DIEDIEDIE!
AltAltCarter: Ooooh, freaky hair.
...
Carter: We probably succeeded because we're different from the people in your universe. Those slight differences may have help--
AltAltCarter: So you're better than we are, are you? Is that it?
Carter: I didn't mean--
AltAltCarter: Bite me.
Carter: What just happened?
O'Neill: I have a vague suspicion she doesn't deal with the chronic whumping as well as you do.
...
[Hug.]
Shippers: [swoon]
Nan: [i:post_uid0]Gahh![/i:post_uid0][/quote:post_uid0]
:D

The Sleapers installment was really silly too.
[quote:post_uid0]Marc: You call that a plan?
IJD: I don't remember you complaining on the wizard world.
Marc: You had turned me into a ferret.[/quote:post_uid0]
I'm still trying to picture that. :lol:

And a thoroughly funny Top Ten list, too! What a great update! :lol: ¬ :bigsmile:[/color:post_uid0]

That bit will be familiar to anyone who's read the Harry Potter books.

Mine too. ¬ :D

Also, for those of you wondering why Marc was snickering at a reference to a mention of Five-Minute Dilbert a couple days ago....

[b:post_uid0]Mirror Kira:[/b:post_uid0] I'll show you how to boost worker productivity! Random executions! Guards, take those three away and shoot them!
[b:post_uid0]Chief Guard:[/b:post_uid0] Dilbert, Wally, Alice -- you heard the boss! Get out of your cubicles and come with us![/quote:post_uid0][/color:post_uid0]

*Contented sigh*

That's what I like to see.

The rest was good too. I especially liked the TOS themed Top Ten list. If the next four days are anything like as good, then I'm probably going to end up laughing myself to death.[/color:post_uid0]

[color=#000000:post_uid0]There was also the "Elbonian Mafia" line at the beginning of Part I. ;)[/color:post_uid0]

[color=#000000:post_uid0]OK, I've only just noticed that - shows how much attention I was paying.[/color:post_uid0]

[color=#000000:post_uid0]^ It's been on my bookshelf for years (as part of a volume of non-Foundation, non-Empire, non-robot Asimov stories.) One of the best sci-fi stories anyone ever wrote. :)[/color:post_uid0]
