unfathomable power

  • X-Men: The government is comparing mutants to weapons, trying to get them all to register, but the real villain of the movie is MAGNETO.
  • X2: There is now a US general who used armed soldiers to seize a school building full of children and who has captured the X-Men's leader and is using his brain to wipe out the entire mutant race. The real villain is still MAGNETO.
  • X3: There's been a "cure" discovered that deprives mutants of their mutation and has been weaponized. Also, Jean Grey, one of the X-Men's own, has come back from the dead as a terrible being of unfathomable power. Somehow, the real villain of the movie manages to be MAGNETO.
  • XMFC: Sebastian Shaw has been torturing, abusing, and manipulating mutants for decades, and he and the Hellfire Club plan to start WWIII. The villain of the movie is MAGNETO.
  • DoFP: The US government is sanctioning a program that will lead to a dark timeline in which mutants are hunted by robots and rounded up in concentration camps. The villain of this movie is not Bolivar Trask, who is building the Sentinels, or Mystique, whose actions inadvertently cause the timeline to come to pass, but MAGNETO.
  • X-Men Apocalypse: Apocalypse is a big scary dude from ancient times who wants to see the whole world burn. But don't worry! Guess who's still a villain? MAGNETO.

When Hopper looks at her, he sees his Sarah. Her endless curiosity and vigor to learn. Her gentleness and love for every being. Her shyness and quiet voice. Her eternal courage and resilience in the very face of death and destruction and evil. But this girl with sad eyes and buzzed hair and unfathomable power is not his Sarah. Sarah taught him all the things she learned in school about planets and galaxies and far off stars; Eleven herself must be taught the principles and words and ideas that govern her new world. Sarah smiled and giggled easily; Eleven’s eyes are mostly fearful and stoic. Raising Sarah had been a joint effort between him and his wife; raising Eleven begins the uncharted territory of single parenting. But she doesn’t have to be his Sarah. She’s his El.  His El who lights up his entire world when she graces him with a small smile and insists on those toaster waffles for breakfast every morning and scolds him for cursing. His El who lets her guard down when she needs a comforting embrace after a nightmare and playfully moves things out of his reach with her powers and encourages him to tell Joyce Byers how he really feels. His El who excitedly rides in the passenger seat of the police cruiser and spins around in his office chair and becomes the darling of the police station when he brings her into work. His El who he goes out to a diner with in the middle of the night when the grocery store is out of Eggos and both of them need a midnight snack and who looks up to him with all the love in the world. His El who he loves to the ends of the earth

So the prophecy in waterfall and the need to break the barrier whit 6 souls is common knowledge,doesnt that mean that it happened before just like no one knew what would happen when a monster absorbs a human soul there is no strong evidence about it working,so how in your opinion do they know?

First, there is evidence that monsters had some idea what happened when monsters absorbed a human soul.  The ancient writings in Waterfall seem to indicate this:

ANCIENT WRITINGS:
If a monster defeats a human, they can take its SOUL.
A monster with a human SOUL… A horrible beast with unfathomable power.
(It’s an illustration of a strange creature…)
(There’s something very unsettling about this drawing.)

The confident usage of the word “horrible beast” and the accompanying illustration suggest some kind of firsthand knowledge about this.  The reaction of the humans to Asriel and Chara’s combined form lend it some veracity.  The humans may have reacted out of fear upon seeing a strange, unsettling creature carrying Chara’s body.

Secondly, it is true that the Waterfall writings state that seven souls are required to break the barrier:

ANCIENT WRITINGS:
There is only one way to reverse this spell.
If a huge power, equivalent to seven human SOULs, attacks the barrier…
It will be destroyed.

However, there is no indication that monsters knew this firsthand due to having broken it before– after all, monsters are still trapped underground.  It would make more sense for them to know from another source.  For example, the Royal Scientist’s goal is to free the monsters, so it is possible there was information gathered on the barrier.  

ENTRY NUMBER 1
This is it… Time to do what the King has asked me to do.
I will create the power to free us all.

In addition…

ANCIENT WRITINGS:
Hurt, beaten, and fearful for our lives, we surrendered to the humans.
Seven of their greatest magicians sealed us underground with a magic spell.

The pattern of seven magicians and seven souls to break the barrier is worth considering.  It’s very possible that monsters gained some degree of understanding from this.  While the nature of human magic is never really explained or described beyond this one sentence, it’s possiblethat monsters have some way of accurately determining facts like this about the barrier.  After all, there is no real reason to doubt the veracity of this information, and it matches up with what is known firsthand from Asriel breaking the barrier at the end of the pacifist route.

I’m going to get a major in political science and actively play a role in the government.

I ain’t gonna stand idly by while my country gets handed off to a fascist again.

This is a story of a girl who always aspired to be a superhero. She always believed in her dreams, even as a little kid, she knew she had powers unfathomable in this world, only yet at that time, she hasn’t discovered it yet. Maybe she could wield fire with bare hands, move objects with her mind, or be invisible. She always hoped, that one day, she will fight the villains in the world. She will be the hero everyone need. She hoped and hoped until she was sixteen. Then, she realized what she was capable of. She was good, great even, at destroying things. No matter if its material, or non physical just like love and friendship. Only then she realized it was the superpower she always waited for. She was a walking chaos. She knew, at that time, that she will never be the hero she always dreamt of— because she was the villain.

the seven human magicians

(undertale spoilers)

the world of undertale presents some different (and potentially conflicting) facts about humans and monsters. for example, it was told that seven human magicians created the barrier that sealed the monsters inside the underground – but some text in the library states that humans cannot use magic. if this is the case, then how did human “magicians” come to exist in the first place?

here is the information that the game provides us:

snowdin / library

waterfall / wall writings

here are the important points we can take away from all this:

  • monsters are mostly made of magic (magical beings)
  • humans are mostly made of water (physical beings)
  • humans cannot use magic
  • any monster can be killed easily by a human with a powerful soul
  • monster souls consist of “love, hope, compassion” but human souls do not need these things
  • the power of one human soul is equal to that of almost every monster soul in the underground combined
  • monsters can absorb human souls
  • a monster with a human soul becomes a “beast with unfathomable power”
  • humans feared that monsters would steal their souls and become unstoppable beasts
  • humans can absorb the souls of boss monsters
  • there is no mention of what effect this has on the human
  • seven human magicians sealed the monsters underground with magic

it also says that a human absorbing a boss monster soul is something that “has never happened”. but if that’s the case, and humans aren’t made out of magic and “will never know the joy of expressing themselves through magic”, then how do human magicians exist? there seem to be only two possible explanations.

  1. the magicians weren’t actually humans. the text only refers to “their greatest magicians”, which could potentially mean monsters that they held captive. this is somewhat doubtful, as the monsters would probably make some remark about humans being cruel at this point.
  2. in order to wield magic, a human must absorb a boss monster soul. we never learn what absorbing a boss monster soul can do for a human besides get them through the barrier. what if the magic from the monster soul allowed humans to cast spells? that the requirement for crossing the barrier is to have both determination/physical elements and magical ability? it would mean that at least seven boss monsters had their souls taken by humans who went on to seal all monsters underground. 

theory #2 would also mean that the claim that a human has never absorbed a boss monster soul is false. the waterfall writings also fail to note what makes a human with a monster soul different, suggesting to me that the monsters simply had no idea. ONE of the things the game states has to be false, at least, because otherwise apparently there were [presumably] human magicians even though humans can’t use magic.

i suppose it could be argued that once in a blue moon a human is born with the ability to wield magic, but i don’t think there’s any evidence in the game that suggests that as a possibility.

to conclude this theory: humans can use magic if they absorb a boss monster soul.

We are each a God of unfathomable power, yet close minded individuals have seen it fit to base our society on cultures that idolize religion, tradition, wealth and physical attributes over imagination and how to think.

The Machine, an ASI of unfathomable power and intelligence, went up against Samaritan in a simulation and lost every single time. 

Shaw went up against Samaritan in a simulation and won every single time. 

Shaw is a badass. And I think this also points to one of the core conceits of Person of Interest, that it is ultimately human connection that is integral to both people and technology and what ultimately makes them “good.” And that even though some might view this as a weakness – Samaritan certainly would – it’s actually a source of strength. It was Shaw’s connection to Root that helped her defeat Samaritan. And perhaps this is how The Machine will find a way to beat Samaritan.

HEY! so a thursday night’s probably not the best time to make this post but i am EXTREMELY EXCITED to be launching my comic, SARGENTUM, at long last!

To cut a long story short, SARGENTUM is a alternate history/vaguely fantasy comic about a boy by the name of Archer who makes arguably the worst descisions mankind has ever seen. Namely making drunken deals with witches in order to gain unfathomable powers. But he’ll deal with this one tiny problem like he deals with everything. Later.

includes: Deep Morality, quasi-Victorians, obscure British mythology and possessed chickens

there’s 8 pages out now (incl. the prologue) and i will be updating every week!

PLS share this around, tell ya friends, tell ya mum, tell ya granny and i will send u gratitude from the depths of my heart

this has been a year in the making and i’m so pumped to be putting it out there and FINALLY releasing my son, archer penhallow, into the world
