“We are one person, James.”
“We are two people,” said Jem. ”Two people with a covenant between us.”
Will knew he sound like a child, but he could not help it. “A covenant that says you must not go where I cannot come with you.”
— Clockwork Prince
Me: So you know how Magneto has that helmet that he wears? And it’s supposed to stop Professor X from reading his mind?
My husband: Yes?
Me: But the helmet doesn’t cover his whole head. So how come Professor X can’t read his mind through his face?
My husband: WHAT?
Well, brain-wise, I don’t see any difference between the front of your head and the back of your head. So technically Professor X should be able to read Magneto’s mind THROUGH HIS EYEBALLS.
My husband: Okay, the thing is, Magneto’s helmet does not guard Magneto’s head from Professor X because it is made of some anti Professor X material, in which case, yes, Professor X could read Magneto’s mind through the front of his head. Instead, there is technology inside the helmet that projects an anti-telepathy field that protects Magneto from Professor X’s thought rays, which includes his face.
Me: That’s ridiculous.
Husband: You’re the one who asked if Professor X could read Magneto’s mind THROUGH HIS FACE. I was just trying to help.
Me: I think it would just make more sense if the helmet covered his whole head.
My husband: Then Magneto would go around bumping into things. Also, Professor X could still read his mind through his neck.
Me: His neck? How could you read anyone’s mind through their neck?
My husband: I’m sure all this will be covered in the next movie.
Will and Jem and secrets.
“‘Entreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go.’”
Set between the prologue and chapter one of Clockwork Angel.
Jem unhitched his arms from his cane and sighed. “You know I believe we are reborn,” he said quietly. “I think if two souls are meant to be together, they will remain together on the Wheel and be together again in the life after this one.”
“Is that an official teaching or something you invented yourself?” Will asked.
Jem laughed. “Does it matter?”
Will looked at him curiously. “Do you think we will be together again?” At the change in Jem’s expression, he added, “I mean, is there a chance for me? To have another life after this, a better one?”
