You compress yourself into a flexible and perfectly flat image of yourself with height and width but no depth, shunting your third dimension into an extradimensional space that moves with you. Your flowing flat form grants you half cover and attacks against you have a 20% miss chance, and you take no damage from bludgeoning damage in this form. In addition, as a reaction you can turn sideways in response to an attack, granting you three-quarters cover; even if the attack hits, you take only half damage. You take double damage when there are two hostile creatures adjacent to you and one hits you with a piercing or slashing weapon.

As a bonus action, you can turn yourself sideways and shunt your second dimension into the space, leaving only a virtually invisible single silken thread. See invisibility does not reveal your location, but true seeing allows creatures to see your thread and effects like faerie fire and glitterdust reveal your presence as a sinuous line. Your own senses function normally and you can move normally in this form and can pass through any gap small enough to admit a silken thread, and can slip through impediments as if using freedom of movement. You are immune to virtually all forms of attack in this shunted form, though your senses can be affected by illusions, and effects that rely on sight, and you can be blinded, or deafened normally. You must still breathe in this form, and inhaled poisons and similar effects can affect you. You can hold your breath and avert your eyes as normal.

You can cast spells or use items or abilities that affect only you in this form, but you cannot cast spells that affect an area, affect other creatures, or create an object or effect outside your body. You can return to your two-dimensional flat state as a bonus action.
