A few days ago I sat down to explain to Ender and Remy why it's so difficult to defeat Chtulhu (they were fighting my crocheted Chtulhu and my Gipsy Danger). I got a piece of paper and drew a dot, then a line, then a cube, and explained the fourth dimension is time. "In the stories, Cthulhu exists in even more dimensions." I drew more points on the paper, connected them to the cube, to themselves, and to nothing. "Oh," Remy said, "that's why people who see him go crazy." I felt like dropping the pencil like a mike. My work is done; their monster hunter training is complete.
