The Symphony

“In the darkness something was happening at last. A voice had begun to sing. It was very far away and Digory found it hard to decide from what direction it was coming. Sometimes it seemed to come from all directions at once. Sometimes he almost thought it was coming out of the earth beneath them. Its lower notes were deep enough to be the voice of the earth herself. There were no words. There was hardly even a tune. But it was beyond comparison, the most beautiful noise he had ever heard.”
– C.S. Lewis, The Magician's Nephew

Malakim/Gabriel

"Gandalf in The Lord of the Rings claims at the bridge in Moria to be 'A servant of the Secret Fire, wielder of the Flame of Anor.' Anyone who's read The Silmarillion knows he's essentially saying 'I'm an angel of God. Mess with me, and I'll drop sunfire on your Balrog butt.' "
--TVTropes, "Light 'Em Up."

Mercurians, or Marc?

He had one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it, that you may come across four or five times in life. It faced, or seemed to face, the whole external world for an instant and then concentrated on you with an irresistible prejudice in your favor. It understood you just as far as you wanted to be understood, believed in you as you would like to believe in yourself.

F. Scott Fitzgerald


Or possibly Yves, actually.

I'd agree with Yves. Just as I think that only Bob Dylan can capture the mad, wonderful Eli:

Einstein, disguised as Robin Hood
With his memories in a trunk
Passed this way an hour ago
With his friend, a jealous monk
He looked so immaculately frightful
As he bummed a cigarette
Then he went off sniffing drainpipes
And reciting the alphabet...

--Bob Dylan, "Desolation Row"

I can't help but wonder if that monk is actually Dominic.

Another one for ...

Low-Contrast Campaigns
