I feel ya, Billy, I've had days like that.

I wonder how well he'll be able to look back on this, though. I don't know much about this continuity's magic.

@Deschia: You just know Billy's going to ask Asia to do it again later so he can learn to beat the befuddlement...

Huh
I'm actually still puzzled by this. I still can't tell if Hizrim is Malevolent or not.

@Evil Eye: My take is that Hizrim is malevolent but trying to act benevolent because he needs Asia's help. He's also very bad at acting benevolent because it goes against his nature, so he's making a mess of it.

@Lunaroki: No,not evil, just OTHER. Remember, demons are the inhabitants of Pandemonium, its wardens as well as its prisoners. Living in such a place it's no surprise Hizrim confuses fear with respect, or longs to escape the darkness it lives in, even for a moment. Asia didn't awaken something in the cave, but in her Realm.
*Edit 5/24/15* OK I Was so wrong about that....

The slow pace of Hizrims talk is starting to annoy a little, maybe make those skippable?

On the other hand, that grin of Billy’s ist just fantastic. :D

@Profpatsch: I try to make sure most of them aren't as long as this one! I think if we ever were able to make this as a game instead, we could have a save data thing, allow people to skip if they've already read it, but since we can't really differentiate a re-reading vs a first time, it's a little harder. This one was really resisting shortening unfortunately.

I agree this one was a bit long though. I'll try harder in the future for you!

Being evil or not is trifle in WoD.

It's all about furthering your agenda, and the world be danmed.

If Hizrim is evil or not, that' of no concern if he can give me an edge.

If he's manipulating me, that's fine too as long I profit somehow. And when the pawn walks long enough it becomes a queen, so whatever

To be fair, everything Hizrim's done so far has felt really benevolent. Billy is much more amusing now. One might even keep him around without getting the urge to punch him in the face - in fact he makes for a rather adorable house pet.
