Ivan frowned, nodding in understanding. "It could be enemy movement," he admitted. He knew little about the Mirror World, but he imagined that it was not too far fetched to think that there might be beings within it willing to ally themselves with the Nightmare King. After all, he knew quite well that the Dream World had its own share of beings who were across the entire spectrum when it came to the war. The Beldam was just one among many beings that he knew was allied with the Nightmare King and tied to the Dream World. Thankfully, many others seemed far more content to stay neutral, something that no doubt had to do with the fact that most beings tied to sleep tended to be ill-suited for war.

Nonetheless, he would not press the matter. Deiter had said he would try to look into it and that was good enough. He should only hope that it was not actually too dangerous. After all, it was starting to seem like there were problems popping up everywhere as of late.

The Nutcracker Prince knew little when it came to injury. While not thoroughly unfamiliar with injury, he had spent almost all of his entire life made of wood, only becoming larger and animated at the strike of midnight. The pain of wounds were not something he was used to and this was admittedly the worst he had ever received, probably completely unfamiliar to him. It was a strange feeling, but one which felt fairly numb to him, perhaps more than it should.

He nodded before following instruction and leaning on the other soldier. Bright eyes turned on the mirror that the Lieutenant had pulled out with a quiet curiosity. "Da," he said in affirmation, making sure to hold onto the other male as tightly as possible without hurting him. He had a feeling he didn't want to know what happened if he let go anyway.

Enemy movement...that made it sound grim, daunting. As if there wasn’t enough danger already, surrounding them, now there was….the possibility of a threat from his own world, yet another danger added to the mix. He gave a soft sigh and a nod of affirmation.

He’d have to take a look, the next time he ventured deep into Spiegelwelt.

They would probably be safe as long as they stayed in the Bridge, the world that stood between the two - where reflections existed, but no depth, no real world of its own. It was where most poltergeists could be found - spirits trapped in the mirror just like Deiter. Not Doppelgangers, but souls consumed by the mirrored world, souls that didn’t heed the warnings to cover reflective surfaces after a death. Now, it would serve as the passageway for the two soldiers to find their way to a toymaker, the only sort of person that could truly help the Nutcracker Prince.

He felt the royal prince of the dream world cling tightly, and in turn held the man near. He closed his eyes, snapping the mirror shut in his hand with both of them in frame. ”Schwarzspeigel.” he whispered, as the lid drew closed. For a moment, there was nothing; blackness surrounded them, and the swimming feeling of weightlessness - but after a moment, the two stood in….relatively the same space, but mirrored. What had been left was now right, and the world itself was faded, paler. Colour was still present, but it was as though it was washed in an odd light. In the distance, the world seemed to vanish into a void of black - it was the “edge” of what the mirror had captured, and at first, it had seemed daunting to the Leutenant. Now, he simply knew that stepping through it meant stepping into the next mirror.

”I’m sure this is very strange for you, right now.” he murmured, supporting the prince as he started along the path. ”but don’t worry. We won’t be in here for long.”

Ivan could not say what he had expected. Perhaps a giant mirror or a world that was reminiscent of what he had from the books his owners had heard. The Looking Glass he had heard of from books sounded like a similar concept to Spiegelwelt after all; he would not have been surprised if they were one and the same, only called by different names due to the existence of numerous stories. Instead, he was met with darkness. It surrounded them, but it lasted for only a moment. In its place they appeared to be somewhere that held a similar appearance where they had once been. The most notable differences was that everything was faded and that the directions of everything were switched, left now right. Moreover, the world seemed to vanish into darkness in the distance.

In many respects, it made sense. Thus far, Deiter had only described Spiegelwelt as a Mirror World. The term appeared to be quite literal, reminiscent to how the Dream World, despite its many realms, appeared to always work as an illusion despite where one was.

"No," he admitted despite the fact that the Lieutenant appeared to have already come to his own assumptions. His brow furrowed and he tried to figure out how to explain. English was something he was still learning and it was often easier to keep things simple. Making things complex left him with the tendency to slip into Russian or make mistakes. "The Dream World...many would think it strange or normal. It would depend upon where you are." It was hard to know on his own part. He could not dream, leaving him without the knowledge of how odd dreams could become and how far the illusions of realms might be able to go. "This is like a mirror to me."

Of all the places in Spiegelwelt, the Bridge was perhaps the most bizarre. It was the most logical, in the literal sense of a mirrored world, but often the consideration was for a world of opposites. That lay deeper inside - Doppelgangers for all beings on Earth drifted deeper, beyond the Bridge, inside the courts. The Bridge was merely a gate between the two - like a neutral zone, a barrier. Most of the time there were very few souls to be found here - only those like himself, that had become trapped, and Blanks - beings that assumed the faces of others in the mirror and had no real identity of their own. He didn’t know much about what they were, but he never had been fond of them, they were unnerving in their doll-like states.

For now it was only the two of them. For that he was glad.

At least Zolnerowich seemed to be relatively relaxed, even comparing Spiegelwelt to the Dream World. He gave a nod, starting them along into the distance. The closer they came to the dark edge of their world, the thinner the darkness became - almost like walking into a cloud. What lay on the other side, though, was a stark difference - what looked like a living room, in an entirely different building. It just happened to be the next mirror along their path. ”There’s a toy store a few blocks down….a small shop. Would that be suitable? Or would it be preferable to go to the store owner’s home...” He did have to get back to work...but he certainly wouldn’t leave the other Guardian until he was settled.

It was difficult for Ivan to find somewhere like the Mirror World unnerving. In many respects, he was only used to the world beyond them as much as the average toy. It wasn't a place he had entirely interacted with for most of his existence. Instead, he'd kept to the Dream World and the Land of Sweets most of the time, both of which could easily be unnerving in how distant from reality they appeared to be. Reality was something he'd only truly interacted with at night and such interaction could only be spoken about in a loose manner.

Then again, perhaps he wasn't frightened because he wasn't entirely human. He was a toy, something which had been crafted to protect. Fear which came to him was something he tried not focus on. Others came first.

He considered the question the Lieutenant offered, his gaze flickering to their surroundings briefly. "The shop would be best," he admitted. He rather doubted that anyone would want someone intruding upon their homes. It was rather rude to do after all.
