That Isn't Me is a 1,1k word horror story about self-image. Sweetie Belle doesn't like what she sees in her mirror, and every time it gets worse.
I started this story expecting some sort of body horror. Or perhaps some psychological drama about how Sweetie perceives herself, and the effect that deterioration affects her mind. Sadly, while it does offer some aspects of that, the story is much more straightforward, and less satisfying. In the end, there's a monster living in the mirror, and it jumps at Sweetie Belle. The end.
A story with potential, but that amounts to little more than a jumpscare.
