Haha, we called it. Love the effects, though they do make it a little hard to read. I was especially confused by Malloy's line, but I sorted it out soon enough. Still, I think it warrants what you guys did, and I think it's terribly clever.

Oh my! This was exquisite. And Hizrim was just great.

@Arukoir: *Gives up on "paradoxing" his sentences for now.* Strangely, Hizrim's reveal reinforces my notion that he is actually an aspect of Asia's self, her "Shadow" run rampant and in control....

@burningtyger:
I always kinda thought he was an Acamoth, and figured that since he reacted to a paradox like this I was right, but Hizrim being an aspect of Asia would make sense since he was working to support her, doing what one could believe she secretly wanted, and has only really asked for one thing.

@Arukoir: Both Goetic demons and Acamoth work with the Oneiros and Temenos, so there's some blurriness, like the wave-particle duality....
The most disturbing to me is when the text box goes sliding down the screen.

OH! I remember something about where Asia came from in her Tumblr, I think it was, and the Shadow thing makes sense! But it's not a Mage-specific phenomenon, so I don't know.

@shylarah: You mean her being brainwashed by a cult as a kid- "Brother Seven." I suspect the psychological and mystical approaches are not necessarily in conflict, for the universe of Mage seems to be holographic and omnijective, the Supernal Realms imaginal....
