Stealing a name, so that it cannot be spoken. Stealing a reflection from
a mirror, so it only reflects the room you’re in. Stealing the scent of
every rose, as a Valentine’s day gift. These thefts are an attempt to
steal from the physical laws of the universe.
It may be considered the inverse to the Sister Trope, Monumental Theft.
While a monumental theft describes stealing the moon, it doesn’t always
deal with the ramifications of gravity on Earth. An Intangible Theft of
the moon’s gravity would certainly cause tidal problems here on Earth,
even if the moon doesn’t move. Both tropes are a type of Impossible Theft.

Dungeons & Dragons Third Edition:
The legendary thief Andromalius managed to prove his devotion to/prank
Olidammara, god of thieves and rogues, by repenting for his crimes on
his deathbed, essentially stealing his soul from his own deity.
Olidammara was pissed at first, then realized the delicious irony of the
deed, but was faced with a conundrum - he’d either have to ruin the
joke by accepting Andromalius’ soul, or let such a character pass into
the realms of another deity. So Olidammara stole the thief’s soul from
the multiverse, turning him into a Vestige somewhere between life and
death, transcending mortality but forever beyond the reach of any god.
“Whether Andromalius deemed this result an honor or not remains

On this day in music history: September 8, 1973 - “Let’s Get It On” by Marvin Gaye hits #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 2 weeks (non-consecutive), also topping the R&B singles chart for 6 weeks on August 18, 1973. Written by Marvin Gaye and Ed Townsend, it is the first pop and tenth R&B chart topper for the R&B music icon from Washington DC. After the critical and commercial triumph of “What’s Going On”, Marvin Gaye renegotiates his contract with Motown Records which guarantees him greater creative freedom, and at the time making him one of the highest paid black musicians in the music industry. However, Gaye finds himself once again plagued by writer’s block as he is scheduled to begin working on his next album. When Marvin begins working on material, one song in particular initially has a completely different concept and subject matter. Initially, Gaye comes up with a song that has a religious theme, which evolves into a more political song with lyrics contributed by Kenneth Stover. When fellow songwriter and co-producer Ed Townsend (“For Your Love”) hears this original version, he urges Marvin to change it, as the track has a decidedly sensual vibe and the original lyrics don’t work. With Townsend’s assistance, the song is dramatically transformed and becomes the centerpiece of one of Marvin Gaye’s most popular and enduring works. Having come from a very strict religious background, often having a difficult and sometimes physically abusive relationship at the hands of his preacher father, Gaye grows up with a deeply conflicted view of sex that he carries over into adulthood. “Let’s Get It On” is written with the idea liberating one’s self from the often dogmatic views of the church on sex, and that religious fervor and sexual ecstasy are not that far removed from each other. Another inspiration for “Let’s Get It On” comes when Gaye meets guitarist Slim Gaillard’s daughter Janis Hunter. Though she is only seventeen years old at the time, Janis and Marvin become friends which later evolves into a romantic relationship and eventually marriage. Becoming Gaye’s creative muse, Hunter’s presence further sparks the musician’s creativity. “Let’s Get It On” is recorded at Motown’s Hitsville West Studios in Hollywood, CA on March 22, 1973. Issued as the first single and title track of Marvin’s thirteenth studio album on June 15, 1973, it is immediately and emphatically embraced by the public. Entering the Hot 100 at #74 on July 14, 1973, it climbs to the top of the chart eight weeks later. Like the album itself, “Let’s Get It On” becomes iconic, further establishing the Motown superstar as a sex symbol. Over the years, the song is featured in numerous films and television programs including “The Sopranos”, “House”, “The Simpsons”, “High Fidelity”, “Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me” and “Something’s Got To Give”. “Let’s Get It On” is certified Platinum in the US by the RIAA.
