this is really cool and a good design if it works but
I just can’t stop thinking of tentacle porn when I see this
The thing is, you know, I get how you might be turned-off enough by the overpowering presence of Christianity in western culture to not wanna listen to gospel. I do. But then after I get that, then I don’t get it again, because then I’m listening to gospel, and, like…I’ve ignored a few asks on how to write songs, because I hardly know what to say, and everybody’s path is different, there’s no rules. But for real? I got where I got to lyrically by listening to songs whose lyrics were as rhetorically seamless as this one, and playing them for myself in the privacy of my room, and writing and rewriting the lyrics in notebooks to look at the phrases and see how they worked (and writing hopelessly pretentious little essays in the same notebooks where I described what I saw in the workings of the phrases) and then asking myself whether it were possible to tell more personal, less cosmically-absolute stories in similar terms. To tell stories of no consequence at all in comparably vast, comparable hermit terms. Naturally I’m not on this level yet, at all, but seriously. “When the bridegroom cometh, will your robes be white?/Are you washed in the blood of the lamb?/Do you rest each moment in the crucified?/Are you washed in the blood of the lamb?” I don’t care if your devotion to Satan is so total that you have his name written in ten-foot-high Helvetica on the side of your house as it is on mine, that right there is how you write a song lyric.

“yeah im a lesbian trapped inside a man’s body” the cishet male laughs as he highfives one of his dudebros. suddenly he gives off a look of pure terror and a piercing shriek as his skin is ripped apart, much to the horror of his crew. his skin falls to the floor and a woman is left standing where he once was. “FINALLY” she roars, kicking one of the dudebros in the dick before running into the sunset in search of some hella fine ladies.

IT LOOKS EXPENSIVE
In case y’all are wondering, Wikipedia says Eternium is “a metal (the strongest metal) from the planet Eternia in the T.V. Series He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.” Laughing and curious, I used the all-mighty google to find this. Here’s a pic sans “jewels.” IT LOOKS EXPENSIVE.
Given the internet’s amusement over this, an intact one might actually be worth something to comics aficionados.
