Superfection

Tenacity, Thy Name is Superfection

Symposium: Not only was the impossible possible, I could excel at something I had once truly believed I was incapable of.

Symposium: The slow kid was just as fast as the fastest of the bunch when rolling the dice. The kid who was afraid to swing across the gully on a vine could take over the world in a game of Risk.
