Enrico: Anyway, he said —

Timothy: Wait, wait — Father Renaldo can talk?

Enrico (narrating): Apparently death has some perks.

Ghost!Renaldo: Enrico Maxwell…it is required of every man that if his spirit goes not forth in life, it is condemned to do so after death. And thus I have come to you.

Enrico: This sure is a weird dream. Was it something I ate?

Renaldo: I’m a ghost, not indigestion!

“So by go forth you mean slaughter all of England? Got it!”

“That’s not what I meant at all!”

I simply adore the chibi expressionof annoyance on his face! It really just makes me want to irritate him some more and fangirl squeel. XD

Are you sure you didn’t have Welsh rarebit before bed, Father Maxwell? 😛

Anyways. Everyone seems to have Scrooge-mania lately, from my creative-writing class to the movies. It’s interesting to me to see Christmas trends and the popularity of certain stories, but I wonder why this particular one? It’s a great story, of course, but why is the mania now?

I thought about making that joke, but it already came up in Pip’s dream storyline ^_^;

Maybe the writing class is driven by the movie? I haven’t noticed more Scrooge-focused stuff than usual, though – I mean, sure, I’m writing a Christmas Carol parody, but that’s mostly because I realized Shine hadn’t done one yet. And it’s not the first such parody I’ve written, either…

I’ll admit that that bit was sort of a generalization. In my writing class, my teacher compared a story I’d written, in which a teen who accidentally commits suicide is talked back to life by Death himself, to A Christmas Carol. (Another student mentioned It’s a Wonderful Life, but A Christmas Carol is the only one my teacher mentioned. Three times during the review, in fact. He says it’s one of his favorites.) I added that to the movie coming out, and to your current parody, and thus the connection was made.

Either way, don’t think I’m complaining, I love the current storyline. A taller Timothy is also welcome. :3
