Postby Audiendus » Sun Oct 10, 2010 7:41 pm

Mystique (noun)

Pronunciation: mis-teek

Meaning: An air of mystery, magic, exoticism, charisma, fascination or special power surrounding a person, place, object or activity.

Examples:

The old city of Timbuktu had a mystique which is now sadly diminished.
The mystique of quantum physics helps to sell many popular science books.

Perhaps also a good name for the Dr.'s collection: Miss Teek - the local lady of mystery.

She's a mite creepy for my tastes. How's about this one?

If anyone does read it, and should care to, please drop me a PM and let me know what you thought of it. Though I know he's a good writer, I'm obviously a bit biased.

Yes, she was a bit creepy. But the special effects of her transformations were amazing!
