An Answer for a Question by silvermittt An Answer for a Question by silvermittt :

"A popular yet colloquial definition of love suggests that it, too, is frequently lacking in visual perception.

It can also be ‘magnetic,’ though Legion has detected no specified fields.

Perhaps it is all of them.

‘You look…well, I was going to say ‘Like a flashlight and some plumbing, same as always,’ but that’s not it.’ Shepard-Commander is tired. His voice betrays this, a subtle shift in magnetism, followed by a sigh in which he closes his eyes. They wonder what he sees—a singular phenomenon—on the backs of his eyelids. And if being blind is, somehow, a catalyst for the applicable resources of ‘imagination.’ ‘You look thoughtful,’ Shepard-Commander says finally. ‘What’s up, Legion?’

Legion’s visual perception is currently unchallenged. ‘A ceiling made of the standard metal alloys. Insulation. Lighting strips. A rod that needs to be replaced.’

Shepard-Commander chuckles—as though it is a joke."

-My favorite little part from one of Shimmy's ficlet for this one. <3

I'm shocked that I have not commented on this. I thought I did.

I'm amazed at the magnetism displayed in this piece, begging to be told. It's complete, yet it feels like it wants more, and that little snippet in the link you provided strengthens the atmosphere of this piece. I am amazed!

Thanks so much Jason, I really am glad you get it, the piece was really a small one I did and didn't spend too much time on but it's kind of my favorite so I totally appreciate your insight into it. I feel like you get it and that's awesome, what you said was basically exactly what I wanted to convey.. so.. thank you for that. :)

You're welcome. One thing I strive to do is capture such feelings in writing, but more through imagery and metaphor. That is challenging enough. Capturing the same emotion through art such as this takes talent and heart, and I must thank you for sharing this with us.
