    Summary

    New Town seemed to glitter with a hitherto unseen shimmer now that she had experienced first-hand the ills of Old Town. The luxurious parlors, the elegant dresses, feasts of the highest quality meats and desserts, motorcars and illuminated avenues, all of it seemed to be an existence made of gold and ivory, pearl and gemstone, a world fashioned from the finest cuts of reality decorated and arranged as perfectly as a dream. Jane’s life had been nothing but this splendor for years and years, and she had truly noticed none of it. She breathed it, bathed in it, until only the minor failures of paradise, the occasional fracture in its gilded surface, caught her attention. She was blinded to the brilliance of her own life. Now, the fractures she had looked on with such a critical eye seemed nothing compared to the fissure exposing the rot beneath.

    "The truth is rarely pure and never simple." --Oscar Wilde

    Summary

    "Hi," you say. "I’m Jane. Last year I fell through a mirror and into an upside-down world full of sentient playing cards where I overthrew the evil queen. And if you even think of laughing or pretending you don’t believe me I am going to stab you with a fork."

    He’s facing you full on, now. Staring.

    "Well?" you say. "What was yours?"

    "...Magical pony adventure," he says finally.
