A lot of every day nuisances would be easily taken care of if you’ve got the ability to manipulate metal.
*Forgot your keys? A flick of the wrist and the door’s wide open.
*Your co-passengers in the Jeep are deaf, indifferent, or too far away? Make your payment float to the driver.
*Late for work? Fly.
*Strapped for cash? Uhm, you know.
There’s metal to be found almost everywhere in the world, there’s even iron in the blood—and it’s less of a headache (pun intended) than telekinesis—so, yeah, it’s highly useful.Photo by flashbulbmemoriae!
Having been exposed to X-men since I was a kid, I’ve gone through different favorites. My first, when I was around 7, was Storm (I even had a shirt with her on it), and then I moved on to Cyclops and then Professor X.
When Ian McKellen donned the helmet as Magneto for the X-men movie of 2000, I knew I would never move on from him or even go back to my former faves.
There was something about his persona that, as a 10 year old, I could easily access. Growing up and discovering myself, I only related to and admired him more. His battle against humanity’s hatred, his distaste for the unevolved homo sapiens, and his methods made sense to me, literally and metaphorically.
And it didn’t hurt that for every movie he’s in, he’s got bad-ass scenes.

" […] it is a monstrous thing, to slay a
unicorn . Only one who has nothing to lose, and everything to gain, would commit such a crime. The blood of a unicorn will keep you
alive, even if you are an inch from death , but at a terrible price. You have slain something pure and defenceless to save yourself, and
you will have but a half-life, a cursed life, from the moment the blood touches your lips. “
—Firenze to Harry Potter

“…He hath as it were the strength of an unicorn: he shall eat up the nations his enemies, and shall break their bones, and pierce them through with his arrows.”
-from Numbers 24:8 KJV
It’s pretty hardcore how in almost all the nine times Unicorns were mentioned in the King James Version bible, they are allusions to power and brutality.

The unicorn is a beautiful beast found throughout the forests of northern Europe. It is a pure white, horned horse when fully grown, though foals are initially golden, and turn silver before achieving maturity. The unicorn’s horn, blood, and hair all have highly magical properties. It generally avoids human contact, is more likely to allow a witch to approach it than a wizard, and is so fleet of foot that it is very difficult to capture.
— from Newt Scamander’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
"A half-read book is a half-finished love affair."
Coming across this passage from Cloud Atlas made me pause and sheepishly glance at the books I’ve opened, read, and halfway through (sometimes even before that being in the world between their covers.
After a while, I manage to look away from my unfinished stack and continue reading. After all, not all love affairs are all that.
"Regiminate!" - 09 August 2014
Regiminate - Regidalek mashes up two loves, an old one and a new: Pokémon and Doctor Who.
Inspired by my first encounter with the Regis onscreen and finally hearing what they sound like, I couldn’t help but be reminded by their short, robotic bursts of the recurring DW villains, the Daleks.
Behold, a contradictory Frankenstein monster of a benign, protective creature and a hateful, destructive monster!
Robert : “What do you think death is?”
Emma : “Silence. No more talking. No more running. No more lying or fighting, or killing. I think it all just stops. It gets really quiet. And then there’s only silence… At least I hope that’s what it is.”
Oh, Emma.Sometimes I wanna push you off a building, sometimes I wanna help you push someone off a building.
This episode was definitely a time when I was right beside you, especially because of your lines as quoted above.
Death, to me (and I have been thinking it to be so for quite some time now) is the final period in a man’s life. No extra pages follow, no epilogues. No Heaven. No Hell. No afterlife in its myriad versions. Only death. Only silence. Only nothingness. Only peace.
