League of Legends - Aurelion Sol the Star Forger will finally live up to his name

Aurelion Sol once graced the vast emptiness of the cosmos with celestial wonders of his own devising. Now, he will do so once again, his immortalized among the constellations.

The International Star Registry is an organization founded in 1979, which sells the right to unofficially name stars. Products and services are often marketed as gifts or memorials since the scientific organization International Astronomical Union serves as the only internationally recognized authority for naming celestial bodies.

Using this service and in honor of one of the most underrated League of Legends champions, which is quickly being rectified with all the memes made at his expense, one enterprising member of the community, with a good sense of humor, has had a star from the Taurus constellation named "Nerf Aurelion Sol".

The almighty being known as Aurelion Sol was already ancient before the rise of the mortal races of Runeterra. Born in the first breath of creation, he and those like him roamed the vast nothingness of a pristine celestial realm, seeking to fill this canvas of incalculable breadth with marvels whose twinkling spectra would bring fulfillment and delight to all who witnessed them. 

It seems ironic and arrogant that a civilization such as ours names stars after a being born among them, but then again irony and arrogance is what we do best, we do play League of Legends, after all.
