IF YOU HAD ROOM WITH ABSOLUTELY NOTHING IN IT AND THE WALLS CEILING AND FLOOR WERE MADE OF MIRROR WHAT WOULD IT LOOK LIKE IN THE MIRRORS
Holy shit I asked my dad who’s a physics teacher and he just looked at me, looked at the table, looked at me, tried not to smile, looked angry, and started to look up where you can buy big mirrors.
this is an actual room of mirrors.
as you can see, it leads to glitches in the matrix

my harry potter OC is called deadlift powercrunch, the most muscular wizard of all time
wizards rarely use physical power to accomplish anything, so the most muscular, is propably not that muscular when compared to muggles
deadlift powercrunch uses her physical power above magic, she does not care about magic and only uses it to create gym equipment from thin air and also to give her gatling gun arm infinite bullets.

From Catching Fire, chapter 1:
Every year in school, as part of our training, my class had to tour the mines. When I was little, it was just unpleasant. The claustrophobic tunnels, foul air, suffocating darkness on all sides. But after my father and several other miners were killed in an explosion, I could barely force myself onto the elevator. The annual trip became an enormous source of anxiety. Twice I made myself so sick in anticipation of it that my mother kept me home because she thought I had contracted the flu.
"Twice." That is the key word in this story. Katniss’s mother is well-known in 12 to be an excellent healer. It is mentioned by several characters, Haymitch, Peeta, Hazelle. Even when Katniss is angriest towards her mother, she still has to admit that she is very good at her job.
Are we to believe, then, that Mrs. Everdeen misdiagnosed her daughter’s anxiety as the flu? And then she did it a second time? Not likely. She kept Katniss home because Katniss was dreading the mine trip. Besides just keeping her daughter away from a scary place, I imagine that Mrs. Everdeen took these two occasions as rare chances to give Katniss some motherly comfort and not be rejected. Look at how Katniss describes waking up in the cave to Peeta stroking her face. She thinks it is her mother at first, presumably because that is how her mother cares for her when she has the flu (and probably also “the flu”):
My mother’s hand strokes my cheek and I don’t push it away as I would in wakefulness, never wanting her to know how much I crave that gentle touch. How much I miss her even though I still don’t trust her. (The Hunger Games, Chapter 22)
Katniss will gladly accept some mothering if she has an excuse and can pretend that it’s just medical treatment. She does the same thing in Catching Fire after she hurts herself getting over the fence.
I’m ordered to a week of bed rest and I don’t object because I feel so lousy. Not just my heel and tailbone. My whole body aches with exhaustion. So I let my mother doctor me and feed me breakfast in bed and tuck another quilt around me. (Chapter 11)
In the rest of that paragraph, Katniss lists all the things she is worried about, which are surely the reasons behind her exhaustion. She is stressed out and turns to her mother for relief, but calls it “doctoring.” Mrs. Everdeen understands this, so she goes along with it, just like when she said Katniss couldn’t go on the mine field trips because she was sick. Katniss and her mother choose to act like the cure for flu is gentle caresses and the treatment for a busted heel is being tucked snugly into bed. It’s their way of having some mother/daughter closeness even while their relationship is still fragile.
