Kids are pretty much interchangeable at that age, right?
The weird thing is that the suffering, the stubborn inability to get over fucking anything, is what powers their badassery. The only reason John "Nicolas Cage" Travolta hunts down Nicolas "John Travolta" Cage in Face/Off is because his son is dead. Inigo Montoya got good at sword-fighting only because of his dead parent. Spider-Man, Green Lantern, Batman are only superheroes because they've been made crazy by loss. If Batman saw literally one therapist, he would be a far happier, more boring, rich playboy.
And, spoilers alert, that's not how demons work in real life. I don't mean to sound like a deranged fortune teller at the beginning of a horror movie, but terrible things are going to happen to you in your life. If you're lucky. I mean, I guess you could die first? This is the darkest comedy article I've ever written. God, I am just so sorry.
Let me tell you a story. Once, I had a party in my studio apartment, and by "party" I mean I had about five people over and we drank and played poker. At around 11:30 pm I walked my friends out, and they piled into a designated driver's car and everyone went home. The next morning, I got a call from my landlord saying that someone had puked in the upstairs lobby, and it must've been my friends, and she demanded I clean it up. Now you and I both know that it couldn't have been my friends, right? Because I already told you that I watched them get in their car and drive away, and besides, we didn't even have a reason to go up to the upstairs lobby. Are you calling me a liar? Fuck you! The point is, I got over this incident, because that's what healthy people do. I'm totally over it, 100 percent.

It got all over my shoes! OK, OK, fine, I'm letting it go.
