Evening Open Thread- UNICORNS

I was challenged this week to open an open thread with a couple paragraphs about unicorns. Well, going into the weekend, that’s a great freaking topic to start with.

Here’s what I don’t get about unicorns. People associate them with rainbows, glitter, sparkles, etc. They’re a symbol of the Lisa Frank flowery style of fantasy. But think about them seriously in a fantasy setting.


A true unicorn in a fantasy setting should be the majestic steed of a general leading an army into battle. It has a spear growing out of its head. Shadowfax should have been a unicorn. Elrond should command a score of mounted cavalry on unicorns. They should be the majestic steeds of kings and generals.

And that’s what I have to say about them.

Probably not artiofab expected, eh?

So what’s going on with you? Let’s hear how your weekend is going to go!
