“The fact that you are possessed by a demon does not mean you must become evil. Being evil is a choice, just as being good is a choice. If you let the demon take over, it's because you choose to.”
James Swain, Dark Magic

“Cookies are code that sites attach to the IP address on a computer,”
James Swain, The King Tides
