Queen of Swords

 

Homage to Wagner.  Brünnhilde lays asleep on the mountain surrounded by magic fire, waiting for Siegfried.  Only he who wasn't afraid of Wotan's spear could pass the fire.  And when that romance didn't work out, she burned down Valhalla and left Earth to the mortals.

Not everyone can have what they want.  A man who can't sing isn't going to be the world's greatest singer.  Know yourself, know what you can do, and don't squander what you have trying to win something you won't.  But also know when to try, and what's worth never giving up on.
