How am I not getting these achievements?

Firstly, hello all! :D

I'm so very addicted to LLTQ right now! I'm trying to work my way through the achievements and try stories that I haven't done before. However, some of the achievements available I thought I already managed to get, yet it appears that I don't have them. They are: ordered an assassination and caused a couple to divorce.

For ordered an assassination...is it that you have to order Julianna to be killed? (Just realized as I was typing. I though having Lucille killed satisfied the requirement, but she's being executed, not assassinated, right?)

Caused a couple to divorce... I gave Julianna's brother Ignatius her title. Isn't he supposed to divorce his wife then?

Also, I'd love a general steer in the right direction for how to get "summoned a creeping shade" or "found a magic mirror". I haven't, so far, encountered any kind of information about that...does it have anything to do with the Priestess?

Ordered an assassination: That one doesn't count, if you order your soldiers to do it then it's a "Ordered an execution", if you post a reward on her head then it's "paid a reward for the head of a fugative". As the title "Make It Look Like An Accident" implies, no one must suspect that you were the one behind it. Try getting very unpopular with the nobles, you might get the option to dispose of someone trying to move against you. Of course you need the skills to actually see it coming and think of the option.
Caused a couple to divorce: Right first step, but it only counts if you actually know that it happens. For this a certain someone very close to this couple needs to be able to inform you.
Summoned a creeping shade: It happens during a fight between Lumens in the first half of the game. Again, it only counts once you are aware of the fact, which happens about two weeks later.
Found a magic mirror: Again, a Lumen fight, but this time one you must not get involved in during the second half of the game. So for this one you have to play a No Lumen game.
I hope that's vague enough while still giving you a hint in the right direction.

:D Thanks for replying!

If I am thinking of the right things, then I believe I know more-or-less what I can do now with the assassination. For the couple divorce, in the particular play through I did, I ended up getting a bit confused and trying to do that while also working on being cruel for the first time. I had also just processed all the family entanglement of my last play through ( :shock: ) that I think I forgot that the "certain person" was even connected to the couple in question. :oops: Definitely going to do a play though to see if I can end up with him. (I know the second part of what I must do to have his option.)

Creeping shade I'm just wondering... is it a major fight, or a side confrontation that happens with someone minor? I can think of a few Lumen fights in the first half of the game.

I think I understand 'found a magic mirror'! :o If it's what I'm thinking! I'll test that one asap.

The fight your looking for is against a person who has little presence but lots of influence on the plot. Spoiler for the name: Aunt Lucille. Spoiler for skills to get there: During week 17 have 100 Sense Magic and 80 Resist Magic. Also make sure that no other unpleasant things happen that week that might prevent you from meeting this person.

Oh! Thanks so much! :D I'm got so many scenarios left to play through that I forgot about that being a potential fight! Thanks for your help!
