When Grassie Amande was a small child, she managed to pull a boiling pot of cleaning potion down on herself.

Her arm was hurt so badly, for a while the doctors and mages weren’t sure if they’d be able to save it.

Grassie: Did the show give it away somehow? Did people see . . .

Thorn: Not at all!

We all remember your routine about how Hedge will love your new backless evening dress . . . Nobody stops to think about how we never see you in the backless evening dress.

Oh, this is. My heart. I never imagined Grassie might have such a deep emotional wound. I don’t know why.

Everyone has a deep emotional wound. It’s part of being a human being. And it’s wrong to play the game of ‘who’s wound is deeper’ (AKA ‘Trauma poker’)

Honestly, if I had met someone who had never had something go horribly wrong in their life, I wouldn’t know how to relate to them, and I would be half convinced that they were not actually human.

Disabilities. Being the victim of a crime. Bad relatives. Accidents. Disasters. Any of the above happening to your closest friends or relatives. And more.

And the reason why it’s wrong to play the “who’s wound is deeper” game is that the depth of wound is not directly related to how bad the reason was. Lot of people have deep emotional wound from something you would consider trivial or too distant from them.

…. not that Grassie or Thorn would be example of that.
