Holy hell (Destiny)

Good point. Rasputin does say he knows who she is. He then ask who she belongs to as she's not a Guardian, not with the Darkness and not answering to him ( though being an Exo she must have once.) At least that's how I read it.

How did I miss that post (the one you linked to)? Best post ever.

It's weird, but some of Durandal's comments make more sense within the context of Destiny than they do within the context of Marathon (my perception - I am only marginally informed in that regard).

All of this plays in the meta of game-playing. In-universe, a guardian appearing out of nowhere (i.e. logging on and off), dying, being resurrected, always winning would be nonsensical to the observer.

It's literally god-power, in which succeeding is only a matter of deciding to. But it's limited god-power, in that only the trial presented can be overcome (i.e. I can't go climb that mountain unless the game was designed to allow me to).

We're given god-power, but little control over fate. We may be supreme, but only along a specific path...or Destiny.
