Leaving a Legacy

“In 300 years, if you were to be named the patron saint of X, what would you like X to be? Places, activities, objects – all are fair game.”

This is a tough one, a lot of pressure. As a saint, not only would I be forever remembered, but people would pray/turn to me in times of need. If I could choose…I would be the Patron Saint of Fandoms. My saint story would probably go something to the affect of…

There was once a young woman named Rebecca. Her heart and imagination were so big she read/watched as many books, television shows, and movies as time allowed. She was a Potterhead, Nerdfighter, Wedonite, Browncoat, Trekker, Buffista, Scoobie, Downtonian, X-Phile, Slythindor, Brony…to name just a few. She often spoke of her fanatical love for fictitious worlds and spread the word of fandoms. Often helping her friends, strangers, and students find new works of art that led them to find their own fandoms to join. As she was attending a fan club meeting, a strange man come up to her. He pulled a gun to her head and told her that if she disavowed her multiple fandoms he’d let her live, if not he would kill her. She refused. She began to recite of Joss Whedon quotes, sing Hank Green songs, explain the differences between the 4 HP houses, and argue who was the best MLP (Rarity, of course!). She was martyred for her beliefs. Now, when fanboys and fangirls ever feel defeated, bullied, or get into another squabble over who the best X is of their fandom – they turn to Rebecca, Patron Saint of Fandoms.

Can’t believe I almost missed…Mutants & Hybrids

“If you were one part human, two parts something else – another animal, a plant, an inanimate object – what would the other two parts be?”

I can’t believe I almost missed this one! Better late than never. If I could be a hybrid of three things, I’d pick: human, tigress (any of the big cats, really), and a mirror. As a hybrid I would be a humanoid looking creature with physical features and traits of the others two objects. My senses would be heightened like a tigress/big cat and I would be able to move effortlessly with minimal sound. Also, of all animals I really like the big wild cats. Then I’d choose a mirror to help with camoflauge. I imagine my skin would have reflective properties that would just “mirror” back the image of what’s in front of me, allowing me to hide in plain sight. I could go about my business relatively unseen or at least less noticeable, as most people do not seem to notice what’s right in front of them.
