error or just fun from the creators?

I was playing the game here the other day with April down in the world beneath the in, where Zoë ends up her first time in Arcadia, and I noticed this weird thing in the water. When I walked past the gate that opens when those creatures sings and further in to where Zoë starts and look into the water, you see some sort of reflection of Zoë in right above the surface of the water. Has anyone seen this or is it some bug in my game?

Here's what I'm talking about:

I was just wondering if it is a bug or just some small fun from funcom.

Some people think it was put in there intentionally, but most of people (myself included) think it's just a bug. Someone should ask Tornquist.

Saw the exact same thing. It vanished after I took April back to the beginning of the area and returned. At first I thought it was related to needing to get across the water (a hint for walking near there, or something), but turned out to be nothing. Until it vanished, I had been hunting around that spot for a while.

I've seen it too, and mine didn't vanish either...

I think it's a bug.

Yeah, must be a glitch. My Zoe stood in that water for a while. But not it that particular location on the lake.

Now my April sees a silhouette of Zoe looking out across the water.

Most odd.

I saw it too. Has to be a bug, albeit a very weird bug, so odd that I also wondered if it was intentional... but it probably wasn't.

its a bug. I can only see it from one side. It only apears for me when I walk passed it to the other side. I can't see it right away. Aparently some people don't see it at all.

I guess the only person who can answer is for sure (that we can ask anyway) is mr Tornquist him self.

actually i read an article from him and he was specifically asked if there were any easter eggs.... he said there weren't. So i guess it really is just a glitch.

But there is/are (an) easteregg(s). If you'd call it an easteregg: the names of artists on a doorbell panel in Rue des Roses.

Though I think the reflection is just a bug.

In that area, in the underground world, I tend to get some spear-looking stuff across my screen, it disappears after a second but jumps up from time to time. Nothing serious or anything, but damn the first time I thought some big nasty guard with one hell of a spear was after me :P

Well if this aint some Masonic ancient rite conceived with the odd o'light weights and measures... I'd hazard a guess that the mysterious lady of the lake was born of Zoe's past enticement with the pebbles.

Or is that a tautology?


Edited to add:

Lady of the Lake?
Swords and Stones?
Or Spears and Destinies?
Fields of Dreamfall focus...?
...where ship Cairns endure?
Musical entrances?
Caskets?
etc.
"The life of everything" is so not appropriate here... and let that not Be al

"For ne'er
Was flattery lost on poet's ear"

"Ours is no sapling, chance sown by the fountain,
Blooming at Beitane in winter to fade"


Sir Walter Scott (17711832), Scottish novelist.
The Lay of the Last Minstrel (1805), and
Boat Song from Lady of the Lake (1810).

Has The Secret of the Golden Flower finally been revealed? If I was paranoid, I'd put this down very carefully and run away as fast as I can. By the Balance... What is this place? It's like...like a million voices. Or dreams. Trapped. Stored. What's happening? What did I do?

Hail to the Chief
