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

  • $\begingroup$ 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. $\endgroup$ – n_plum Feb 27 '17 at 12:35

    $\begingroup$ Thought about it and made the edit but I think mine fits better lol $\endgroup$ – Brent Hackers Feb 27 '17 at 12:48

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.

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

How about:

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

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

Not sure about this one.

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Nope no it, goood connections for those first two though... think about the title too it may help $\endgroup$ – n_plum Feb 27 '17 at 12:34
