leafy angle couch
suspended in the air to b at similar height to floating demon
covered with pleasant things to the demons eyes such as flowers and leafs
candles for the mood
the method of dumping a demon from person to person.
demon enters through the feet and can b dumped from the absorber to a new person through the mouth. this is the easiest way to know that you have a demon.
this method forces the demon to enter at the only possible point: the feet of the inverted person. gravity will pull the demon through the inverted person at a rapid rate due to the transition from pure spirit to corporeal form. if you allow the demon to absorb at its leisure, the demon will have control of the situation, which is to be avoided.
dancing a jolly farewell
a demon will not leave until it feels as if it has had a proper farewell, and a proper farewell requires dancing and at least 4 people. at this point, the demon will walk quickly back home.
how can one tell if one is housing a demon?
one cannot. only someone else can tell.
small episodes with lots of black.
