Rock Ness Mess part 8

In my first draft the punchline was a very weird turn. I had the genie responsible for the talking door. She had been watching Roger with her clairvoyant crystal ball and was making wishes come terribly true from a distance. That was too convoluted, doncha think?

    Having a literal genie is bad enough — but having your casually uttered wishes coming true in horrible ways, especially when you’ve been given no warning that such might occur, is to me a true definition of hell. It’s way too dark an idea, I think, so you did the right thing leaving it out. (Sorry if I sound overly serious, but the concept was truly creepy to me, like with what happened in that god-awful Wishmaster movie.)

    Eris – I’m glad I could grant your mind’s wish. 😛

    Cancerberus, the jaws that bite, the claws that slice with a horrendous pinch. What’s not to love?

    I liked this.

    I’m also a fan of the genie, but I agree including her would have made things too convoluted here.

    Only thing missing from this — “The Cavern” (Tavern) should’ve had some beetles up on that stage. 😉

    Golux – It’s breath!

    MDF – Groan! It’s an underground city of rock so I figured it’d be the Unrolling Stones.
