I wish I could fly away.
But since I can’t, I am cheering myself up with a little RAPS post.
Gravity is a good thing, most of the time. It keeps us grounded. But some people can go beyond gravity. I can think of someone who makes his well-wishers float a few centimetres above the ground on a regular basis :-D. Mr A is a veritable floating device, if you want, the latest imagery notwithstanding. Has he had too many Anti-Gravity Mints???
Which chaRActer is a superhero who merits an anti-gravity RAPSi? The delectable Dr Track comes to mind first – surely, a medical doctor is *always* a hero, saving people’s lives every day. Or a spy like Lucas North, another day-to-day hero, tunnelling through the underground in pursuit of evil baddies, saving the lives of innocents. Even John Porter is eligible, the weight of the world on his shoulders, conflicted by being a mortal with almost-superhuman abilities. But no – when it comes to leaving gravity behind, there is only one I could call king…
There he floats, majestically brandishing his sword and swishing his hair, despite a whole kingdom of mines exploding behind him. Thorin, the Anti-Gravity-King.
*sizzle* Can anyone resist? Take that, Smaug! And everyone else take a shower before you combust.
There we are – Pop! Thorin displays Anti-Gravity. That big head of his has come in handy…
Anyone in need of a floating aid? Here’s the deal: Just leave a comment on the thread, and I will use the number generator to determine who wins the RAPSi. You can win it for yourself or for someone else – your choice. If you are the winner, you just let me know who to send it to, and it’ll float off into the world, postage covered 🙂 I’ll keep the comments open for three days [until midnight, 19 July 2014] , then I’ll announce the winner and get in touch. The RAPSi will be sent off after I have returned to Ireland [23 July 2014].
