Angel: “Why don’t you ever write something inspirational? Spiritual?”
Me: “Because I am a sci-fi/fantasy author. I grew up watching Willow, Star Trek: Next Generation, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Star Wars, and Never Ending Story. I read comics like X-Men, X-Factor, and Batman. I loved reading Piers Anthony books and watched Akira: my first step into Japanese Animation.
Demon: “Oooo, Akira. That was a bloody masterpiece!”
Angel: “And what is so great about science fiction and fantasy?”
Me: “Wha….What’s so great?! Have you no imagination? No dreams? Do you lack the creativity to go beyond reality? Where should I begin? How should I educate your limit perception?”
Demon: “Oh, crap, I’m leaving.”
Angel: “What? What did I say?”
