An heir to the throne had made a deal with their father. They would marry any suitor who could manage to impress them, and they don’t impress easily.
Soon after word gets out a man shoes up to the castle, a sword on his hip and a bloodthirsty look in his eyes. He knelt in front of the heir and bowed his head.
“In exchange for your hand in marriage you will be given land to expand your kingdom.” He spoke, lifting his head so he could meet eyes with the royal. “Does that impress you?”
They shake their head, folding their hands onto their lap. “What good is land to me when I’m perfectly content with what I have now? I’m not impressed with your offer, you may go.” They reply before waving the man away.
Two days pass and another suitor arrives. This one wears a robe and smells of herbs. He also kneels before he dares to speak, like the man before him. “I can teach you the art of magic and how to speak to spirits. Does that impress you?”
They shake their head. “Why would I need your skills when we already have a court wizard? I’m not impressed.” They say, dismissing the wizard.
Weeks pass and not one suitor has manage to impress the heir to the throne and the father is giving up hope.
A woman walks into the throne room and kneels, like the many men before her. Yet, unlike the men before her she has the heir’s attention.
The woman looks up and without a word reaches into her jacket, pulling an object out of her pocket. She grins toothily, a grin that made the heir’s stomach flip flop, and held out her hand. Slowly she uncurled her fingers to show a small round object that laid on her palm. It glowed warmly, a familiar glow that the heir couldn’t quite place their finger on.
“I bring you your heart. Are you impressed?” The woman asks, knowing already that she had.
Came to the realization that Hellbeast #2 literally can’t see the laser pointer. Not he can see it and just doesn’t care - which was the original assumption - but literally is incapable of seeing it. He doesn’t react at all when you turn it on/off, doesn’t track it with his eyes ever, and seems highly confused about what Hellbeast #1 is doing when she chases it.
I don’t think it’s just a matter of colorblindness, though we’re probably going to check that. He sees other red things. We already knew he had problems with his vision. When he drinks from a normal bowl, he pushes it around the floor or repeatedly dunks a toy in it so he can use the water movement to gauge its depth. He takes a long time to line up his jumps and will never do a high jump if he can manage - he’ll go from half wall to couch arm to couch to coffee table to floor, for instance.
I’m curious how exactly he sees. We always assumed it was just a depth perception problem, but that wouldn’t explain the laser pointer.
Okay, I still not finished that pic But I done a quite accurate depiction of how Magnus “So done” The Red met fluffy lizardass. And probably start for real thinking about Tzeentch being a complete asshole. (I am, personally, vote for Team Kairos. Because I know Crys, she will screw everything up while trying to do something good. Wait, oh shi-)
Yes I am falling into deep of Horus Heresy, yes And managed to buy myself “The Thousand Sons” book.
