there is a beating lump of iron in me. i took it out yesterday, polished and decorated with the finest gems i could find—i gave it to the blacksmith. i told them,

make me a sword out of this.

the blacksmith did not reply. they took one look at it and said,

the best i can do is a dagger.

I walked out with an iron dagger a side blunt and the other cutting through diamond.

    the name is so cool... I kinda want a miniseries named that... could I possibly steal it??? Or do a collab or sumthin?? I've never actually done one before, but like "beating iron". What a freaking cool name XD

    I love the mysterious element of interpretation left to readers to decide what the iron represents
