I like that today's word is inalienable, for the Americans out there.  ;D

To go along with today's word of the day:

Did You Know?

Legend has it that the term flat-hat originated with an incident back in the days of barnstormers in which a pedestrian's hat was crushed by a low-flying airplane. According to one version of the tale, the reckless pilot was subsequently required to purchase a new hat for the hapless pedestrian. It seems unlikely that such an event actually took place, but we can well imagine how fear of having one's hat smashed flat by a passing airplane might have given rise to such a vivid verb. Flat-hat is first known to have appeared in English in 1940. Another word for flying low to the ground, the verb hedgehop, debuted at least 14 years earlier (and its related gerund hedgehopping is known to be a bit older still).

I love these flat-hat replies so far! 
corvusul86 - "Doomed ..." is the perfect ending for your scene, and I actually laughed out loud :D

Shores - It is good to be queen! I would love to hear the speech to the 'volunteers'!

Thank you Flower, RampantDesires, and everyone else who's given me positive feedback on these.  I'm really loving the encouragement -- I'm new here, but Elliquiy has been such a wonderful community so far:)

I've been taking these as an opportunity to just let the imagination go wild -- I write a lot of fanfiction, so it's been a while since I've just gone down the rabbit hole  exploring whatever random half-formed bunny-universe I latch onto.  It's been a lot of fun!

It might just be the historian in me, but I really like the origins of today's word:

Steadfast has held its ground in English for many centuries. Its Old English predecessor, stedefæst, combined stede (meaning "place" or "stead") and fæst (meaning "firmly fixed"). An Old English text of the late 10th century, called The Battle of Maldon, contains our earliest record of the word, which was first used in battle contexts to describe warriors who stood their ground. Soon, it was also being used with the broad meaning "immovable," and as early as the 13th century it was applied to those unswerving in loyalty, faith, or friendship. Centuries later, all of these meanings endure.

*nods*  A person who holds firm in their loyalty or support of another or a cause is described as steadfast.  Friends like that are invaluable. :-)

I like your story, corvusul86. It would be something I would like to read more about. She seemed to accept that they weren't wearing costumes fairly easily. Makes me wonder what kind of world they are in.

Thanks!

I'm not really sure what's going on, myself -- when I started writing it I was thinking some kind of urban fantasy, and I wanted to turn things around at the bar scene, so I was going to make her be something powerful, like a dragon in disguise or an elder vampire or something.  But then I had the idea of her being a superhero, and this being the mystical underbelly of a DC/Marvel sorta setting... I dunno. 

If I were ever to continue this scene I'd need to make a lot of decisions;)

I kind of saw her as a 'Buffy' type of thing (sorry if you don't like Buffy!). Mostly an average girl, but with heightened senses and more durable than the average human. Someone who gets more 'superhero' like as time goes on.

I love Buffy!  I actually wrote a lot of Buffy fanfiction years ago -- it's one of the things that got me into writing regularly.

That's another good idea for what could be happening.
