# Purity, Power, and Promise

Maybe another easy one, maybe not. (Can include title)

I am the horror that lurks behind the glass.
I am often one shape, but I can wear many.
I am the stability between two.

What am I?

Probably not, but made me think of

A ring

I am the horror that lurks behind the glass.

Engagement rings! YIKES!

Edit: Oh right...

The movie "The Ring" about a demon thingy that comes out of the TV screen (which used to be made of convex glass) to attack people that watch a cursed video tape (an ancient recording device)

I am often one shape, but I can wear many.

Yep; there are some pretty kooky designs

I am the stability between two.

Wedding rings...

Purity, Power, and Promise

Promise rings, Purity rings, Rings of power

• This is what I am going for, however not for the glass line, I'll accept it eventually but think less like the other lines for that one. – n_plum Feb 27 '17 at 12:35
• Thought about it and made the edit but I think mine fits better lol – Brent Hackers Feb 27 '17 at 12:48
• Haha yeah that's what I was going for originally but totally get both fitting, nice job – n_plum Feb 27 '17 at 13:07

Maybe a bit too much of an imaginative solution but:

An eye?

I am the horror that lurks behind the glass.


Behind each lens on a pair of glasses is an eye

I am often one shape, but I can wear many.


Usually spherical, but there a lot of species with different shaped eyes

I am the stability between two.


Bit weak, but it transfers what you see (the first) to the brain (the second) and is in between.

• Nope not it, but interesting thought – n_plum Feb 26 '17 at 22:23

a reflection?

I am the horror that lurks behind the glass.


a piece of glass can like a mirror show some reflection behind it

I am often one shape, but I can wear many.


Your own reflection is always the same but of course you can see other objects in the reflection also

I am the stability between two.


Maybe to indicate that you and your reflection are identical

• Nice idea! I'm struggling with the last line too... – Beastly Gerbil Feb 26 '17 at 20:16
• Oh that's a super interesting thought! But nope – n_plum Feb 26 '17 at 22:23

Is it

Mannequin

I am the horror that lurks behind the glass.

Mannequins stand behind the display glass of the showrooms

I am often one shape, but I can wear many.

One mannequin can wear different size clothes

I am the stability between two.
