Fighting the big bads is a great article. Thank you Erin.
I had occasions where things switched really rapidly from one thing to another....peace one second, something scary the next second....me doing my usual (that is dashing out of range/sight like greased lightning!) and then peace again and so on...and very hard to predict. I didn't go out scared or anything, but these unstable situations seemed to happen.
I always found get the heck out to be my weapon of choice when there was anything I didn't like....and must be kind of mercurial or slippery because it usually worked.
I got really raging mad with anything I didn't like that stuck around much longer than I liked on a few rare occasions....that seemed to blast it.
Nothing worse than something a big baddie thinks looks tasty and sweet, and good pickings, then it finds out it has fangs!
