October: Magic for a Day













If you had the magic of the realms for a day, what would you do with it? What would you hope you wouldn't do with it?

I really should read something by Libba Bray!

I might be tempted to create a fun illusion, just to try it. I guess I'd be afraid I'd like the illusion more than reality.

Lorie Ann Grover said...

Yes, Kate!

I'd give myself a singing voice, and tears.

And take a ride with the Gorgon.

Thinking selfishly, that is...

I'd want to be able to play guitar like Stevie Ray Vaughn and drum like Dave Grohl. I'd hope I wouldn't do anything that I *thought* was a good idea only to realize that it really was not. Hey, I've watched "The Twilight Zone." I know how these things go. :D

I would want to heal and help others - all kinds of animals, not just humans, and the elements of the world.

Before doing so, I would want to know all of the "rules" (if applicable) and steer clear of any tricks that the magic might have in store, to make sure that I only did good and that my good intentions manifested themselves in the ways intended.

If I were told to use magic for something selfish - because I'd be reluctant to do anything just for myself, not for others, unless I was instructed to do so and it was a must to do something purely fun - I'd make myself more flexible, and get myself a darn SAG card already.

If I had magic--quality affordable health care for everyone!

On a more personal note, health and vitality.

Libba Bray said...

Oooh, healthcare for all. I like it Dia. I hope you get the magic.
