Daily Prompt: A Bird, A Plane, You!

You get to choose one superpower. Pick one of these, and explain your choice:

  • the ability to speak and understand any language
  • the ability to travel through time
  • the ability to make any two people agree with each other

As much as I’d love to be a peer-mediating Time Lord (or Lady, in my case!), I’d much rather have the ability to communicate with others fluent in their native tongue.

It’d be nice to not be annoyed while eavesdropping on a conversation held in Spanglish — many of you who don’t speak Spanish know what I’m talking about! While Spanish sounds like a fun language, I’m primarily interested in French and Korean. There’s something wonderful about Korean; you could sound adorable one moment, then angry the next, and the language still sounds awesome. Just watch any K-Drama, and you’ll see what I mean.

Now this ability could go one of two ways: either you’d have to pick one language to be proficient in, or you could walk through any country or a diverse major city, understanding and speaking to anyone in their native tongue. The latter would be wonderful for me, as it works for the Doctor. Though he does get help from the TARDIS, which does the translating for him!
