Creation and conception[ edit ] The singer-songwriter Sting was the visual inspiration of the character. Alan Moore created the character after artists Steve Bissette and John Totlebenwho were fans of The Policeexpressed a desire to draw a character who looked like Sting. In his earliest Swamp Thing appearances, the character is drawn with a marked resemblance to Sting, and in Swamp Thing 51, Constantine appears on a boat with the name The Honourable Gordon Sumner on the bow. Crisis on Infinite Earths 4, his second official appearance in a cameo role, shipped two weeks prior to the release of Swamp Thing
Stockholm Stigma Part One: He worked for a small air freighting company and helped teach at a flight school at the weekend — he was my hero and idol. I felt as if the sky was in my blood, like I was born to fly. Relying on no one else but myself, shooting through the sky at hundreds of miles an hour, a million miles away from the judgmental eyes of the world; that was where I belonged.
As I got older and the novelty of flying began to fade Bi novel the curse switched flying planes for jumping out of them.
My first parachute jump scared the living shit out of me, but my inner adrenaline junky loved every second. And thus my passion for skydiving was born; I lived and breathed the sky.
For five years, my life was prefect — I had the perfect hobby, the perfect grades, the perfect boyfriend. But all that changed. My life simply dropped off with one near fatal accident. If I had been doing what I loved when I slipped and shattered my back then maybe I would have reacted differently; maybe the story would have had a different ending.
With all the damage I did, doctors said it was a miracle that I was still alive, let alone able to walk sixth months on. But that aside, the damage was done — doctors forbade me from skydiving ever again, lest I fall badly and end up paralyzed, or worse, dead.
All at once, my perfect world crumbled around me. Boyfriend gone, dreams smashed, family pushed away as I tried to shoulder all the agony alone. What was that old quote again?
I vowed that day that I would never let anything take another piece of my fragile freedom from me and from that threw myself into a very deep, very dark place. It was in that dark place that I stopped believing in relationships and love. Nothing in them is true, I reasoned, nothing left untainted - not in love.
How could it when you gave away so much of yourself to someone else? Relationships took away the freedom, the integrity, of a person - That is what I taught myself to believe with all my heart.
The months after my rehabilitation ended became somewhat of a blacked out blur to me. The first night after I was signed off the program, I went out with a group of now somewhat estranged friends for the night and woke up with a completely different group of people.
They soon became my new friends, if you could call them that. Alcoholics, party girls, the odd druggie — this was the crowd I decided to run with. People with no ties. I drank myself half to oblivion. The feeling of adrenaline and alcohol shooting through my veins at a million miles an hour was the closest thing I could find to that of free fall.
But it killed time; it was an escape. Then I discovered a new passion in the form of the one-night-stand. It was the ultimate way of giving relationships the finger; sex was love in this day and age, I observed.
A relationship was therefore meaningless; if two people could create a bond through sleeping together after one night of fun and drinking why bother with the flowers and hearts that went with it?
And why should it last forever? Sooner or later sex with the same person gets boring. Trapped, confined, imprisoned… commitment was just another kind of cage designed to keep me tied down.Bi Lige had demonstrated an overwhelming strength before Shi Mu.
Such strength had gripped Shi Mu in fear and apprehension. He waved his hand to get hold of himself. He had recently stepped into the Hou Tian advanced-stage. So, there was no way that he could break through the Xian Tian level.
