Spoiler Alert!

If anyone cares, and it's understandable if you don't, Nicky's latest story will be about a Christian musician who makes a pact with the devil. SPOILER: It won't have a beginning, middle, end, plot, coherence, character development, or anything else the publishers he's trying to shop it to actually want to read.

In other news, I received an email recently offering me a review of "The Story of Thomas Jode ". The reviewer in question isn't dealing with the same person that normally grants them access to early work-ups of a certain person's stories, so he/she isn't guaranteeing they will be able to obtain it for review. I was asked to add the disclaimer since they are apparently working with a new person I guess.

"A Christian musician who makes a pact with the devil."

As opposed to the atheist musician who makes a pact with the devil? Of course, we can't expect Nicky to know that only someone who *believes* in the devil would make a pact with him...

Nicky is functionally illiterate. His intellect is so low that he cannot grasp the basic concepts of anything.

And even if he could, he is too lazy to do so.

I have seen stories where people who weren't Christians make a deal with the devil, though it's either because they think it's a joke or don't read the contract properly. One example that comes to mind is Winslow Leach from Phantom of the Paradise who only discovered the small print after he tried to kill himself.

The biggest problem I usually have with such stories is the devil's motivation, it seems to demean Auld Nick to have him haggling over individual souls. One idea I've seen touched upon occasionally is that it's similar to the story of Job, only the soul in question is tested through the dreams achieved by the pact and the inevitable loss of something precious. My preferred reason though is one similar to that used in the Canadian horror tv series The Collector where the devil seems to do it sometimes for amusement but mainly to play the long game and spread pain and suffering. One example involves the main character who would have discovered a great deal of important information about the bubonic plague which claimed the woman he loved, instead the devil made a deal with him to resurrect her for 10 years and so he never had the motivation and time which led to even more deaths from the plague over the centuries.

Of course in Nicky's story there's going to be a Christian Horror writer who will attempt to warn the musician and be snubbed for his efforts resulting in the musician's poorly written doom.
