Holy shit what happened, did the Old Ones rise? Is it time to get into the funky robes and relishes and get in line to be eaten among the first?

But hey, annoyance to some anonymous dumbass on teh intarwebz is no reason to reevaluate the use of cheap trump cards, lazy dialogue shutters, and (again) cheap shots at superiority. I do them all the time, come to think of it. Carry on.

People might look at Joe's action and describe it as "suicide", but if they believe that Joe does not prefer to die and are fluent in English, they are speaking figuratively.

said, so as to save the others in the Seer linkup. Now, much as this answer is unsatisfying, we have nothing better: we don't know how backlash works. Maybe it's like a charge that built up and will go kablamo, whatever someone inside the link does. You can only hope casters from outside dissipate it, or redirect it to the others.
Just a hypothetical situation, yes, but not too distant from hypothetical situations in firefighter, or lifeguard, or whatever, training manuals, about which is said "it's ok to let go if this happens". Because I'm sure that training manuals do include such risk management provisions, just as I'm sure that people go beyond the call of duty, and many more who don't- and neither is to be blamed.

I suspect your in for a big disappointment when she turns out to be from the dark side.
We all liked Annie at first. Even when we knew what he was going to become...
I know, right? First Anakin Skywalker was this uber menacing dude in a cool black suit with a voice God would kill for, and then he was this kid who desperately needed his molecules rearranged into puffs of smoke. What da?
The whole point of this is lost if you keep it a secret.
