Gold

Post by Chivalrybean » Sat Aug 01, 2009 9:56 pm

Ehh you, Golden Boy, dat's right, you. I've had enough of your shenanigans... makin' my boys disappear... I don't know where they go, but I don't believe you turn criminals into people that help the poor, and me and my bat here are going to settle this little disagreement.

The thug swung the bat. The man with a yellow ingot symbol on his chest grabbed it. The bat turned gold, as did the man that held it. The Golden Boy then melted the body down, forming it into golden bricks, which he then sold, donating the money to the poor.

A nice twist on the traditional tale of "the Midas touch"... though I have to say, I'd probably turn criminals into gold but use the money for myself.

This would actually make a pretty good superhero story, come to think of it...

You're always the hero in your own story - life is about not being the villain in anyone else's.

I'm seriously impressed by your ability to evoke imagery.
