The Powers That Be

TITLE: The Powers That Be

CHAPTER NO./ONE SHOT: Chapter Thirty-Eight


AUTHOR: wolfpawn

ORIGINAL IMAGINE: Imagine Loki discovering a hidden mutant when he realises they are at risk of being found by S.H.I.E.L.D. who experiments on mutants, he is the one to help them.

RATING: Teen and Up


Heimdall held his arm, or at least what remained of it, surrounded by the corpses of those who had tried to overpower him as he watched the water from the great waters that lay between the Bifrost and the great golden realm rise to the skies, which in turn went dark, great winds beginning to blow in different directions, and the earth seemed to be moving around also. Having the ability to see all, he knew full well what Alexia was doing, but to others, both ally and foe, all they saw was the realm effectively going mad.

Thor noticed that the winds that surrounding him in no way hit him, instead, they avoided him, almost purposely. On the ground Loki noticed it too, and looking around, he noticed other things began to act incorrectly also, but part of him did not know should he trust his eyes, that was until the dwarves froze, staring passed him; risking an attack he turned himself slightly and was shocked to see Alexia walking towards them, with Sif beside her, her eyes filled with anger, worse even than the day of the attack on her on Midgard.

“probably the Silver Crystal powered up because of Usagi’s love for Mamoru”

(cut to montage of the Silver Crystal powering up because of Usagi’s love for Ami)

I believe that we have the opportunity to make every single day of our lives magic. Some days we make that happen, and some days we don’t, but it’s always our choice.

I support you in making your own choices, but I want to encourage you to try things on this list that might even have an inkling of interest in your brain. What’s the worst thing that happens if you try it and it doesn’t work? After all, as Roald Dahl so astutely observed, “Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it”.

Junkers G.38 diesel-powered transport/airliner, later upgraded to more conventional gasoline engines, at the time the world’s largest aircraft in service, designed to compete with the Zeppelins.

Only two units build in the late 20′s, one lost in an accident in 1936, while the remaining unit was destroyed in an airfield by RAF aircraft in 1941.

«A century and a half ago, I lived with my people, the Mapuche. My sister was Pire. Our parents named her after the snow on the mountains because of her fair skin. […]

She came to me one day in secret and told me of the angel that found her in the woods, that visited her by night. I warned her. [..]

I could not save her. The child ripped his way free of her, and she died quickly, begging all the while that I would care for her Nahuel. Her dying wish—and I agreed. “He bit me, though, when I tried to lift him from her body. I crawled away into the jungle to die. I didn’t get far—the pain was too much. But he found me; the newborn child struggled through the underbrush to my side and waited for me. When the pain ended, he was curled against my side, sleeping.»

Vampires of Color in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2:

Huilen, changed in 1850 around age 17, from Mapuche territory.

I am Huilen,” the woman announced in a clear but strangely accented English. As she continued, it was apparent she had prepared herself to tell this story, that she had practiced. It flowed like a well-known nursery rhyme. A century and a half ago, I lived with my people, the Mapuche. My sister was Pire. Our parents named her after the snow on the mountains because of her fair skin. And she was very beautiful - too beautiful. She came to me one day in secret and told me of the angel that found her in the woods, that visited by night. I warned her. Huilen shook her head mournfully. “As if the bruises on her skin were not warning enough. I knew it was the Libishomen of our legends, but she would not listen. She was bewitched. 

She told me she was sure her dark angel’s child was growing inside her. I didn’t try to discourage her from her plan to run away - I knew even our father and mother would agree that the child must be destroyed, Pire with it. I went with her into the deepest parts of the forest. She searched for her demon angel but found nothing. I cared for her, hunted for her when her strength failed. She ate animals raw, drinking their blood. I needed no more confirmation of what she carried in her womb. I hoped to save her life before I killed the monster.

But she loved the child inside her, She called him Nahuel, after the jungle cat, when he grew strong and broke her bones - and loved him still. I could not save her. The child ripped his way free of her, and she died very quickly, begging all the while that I would care for her Nahuel. Her dying wish - and I agreed.

He bit me, though, when I tried to lift him from her body. I crawled away into the jungle to die. I didn’t get to far - the pain was too much. But he found me; the newborn child struggled through underbrush to my side and waited for me. When the pain ended, he curled against my side, sleeping. I cared for him until he was able to hunt for himself. We hunted the villages around our forest, staying to ourselves. We have never come so far from our home, but Nahuel wished to see the child here. - Breaking Dawn, Ch.38 Power
