Newblet Bro accidentally summons a demon and gets his dumb ass in trouble. This story is much shorter than the last, and provides a nice contrast.
So it had been a few weeks since my confrontation with the dragon-king, and I’d grown cocky. I wanted to make more friends like Yiko and have more…
You seem to know a lot about dinosaurs! “Yes, I’d officially GONE FLUFFY.” Ahahaaa this makes me smile :} You are such a great sorcerer, but still humble and hilarious.
But really, this is a good message. I know there are bad things out there, but I often fall into the trap of thinking at least a majority of them are kind or neutral.
Can you not heal your arm? Is healing a difficult thing to do in the otherworld?
I’m sorry if I implied all things were hostile; most things are neutral. Just… think of the otherlands like going to a big, strange city. Most of the people there will probably ignore you. Some will be friendly to you, particularly if you’re, say, buying something from them. Others will be grumpy, but not actually attack you.
What Newblet Bro did was walk straight up to someone standing on a streetcorner and go HEY WOULD YOU LIKE TO COME TO MY HOUSE AND PARTY? while shining with wide-eyed innocence. And, in the metaphor, this person turned out to be a gangster who beat him up to make a point. It could have been worse (if I’d let in a rapist, in the metaphor), it could have been harmless (if I’d grabbed some completely confused person).
You could expect to get shoved and given strange looks if you went up to someone on the street and gave them a huge hug. Likewise, most animals in the zoo aren’t hyperaggressive monsters, but most wouldn’t be happy to have you come snuggle them as you would your pet cat. Some are cruel, and most are dangerous, just not actively hostile. Does that help?
Usually healing is pretty easy, but it complicates in different ways than material stuff. In this case, I pissed off something much more powerful than I was, and she put something in it so it healed crooked. I might, if I studied for a very long time, figure out how to purge the remainders of the poison, and cut the scars apart to heal more nicely, but I’ve been focusing on college, travelling, and other things first. And, meanwhile, it makes a useful reminder to treat the otherlands with respect.
Ahh, that makes perfect sense. No doubt I will make some dumb mistakes, but your posts really, REALLY help.
