Y'know, I've been thinking. This is widely considered by most of the world to be a bad move, but whatever.
Regarding Raz's curse...is it real, or could it all just be in his head?
I mean, yeah, the water turning into a freaking hand and dragging the kid under isn't exactly what one would consider a normal part of your average everyday hydrophobia. But it's been stated that that hand is the hand of fear, which seems to hint that it's Raz's fear that is dragging him under, not an actual curse. And then there's the fact that you never actual lose an astral projection layer after being dragged under.
So, to my point...is Raz really cursed? Or is it really just pretty much his own phobia over the whole matter? If he hadn't been told about this curse, would it still happen? Would his entire family still have that happening if they didn't keep telling the story of them being cursed, whatever that exactly is.
One can arguably say that given the fact that he's psychic it all being in his head doesn't really change anything...but still, it makes one wonder...
Right...so, what are your guys' thoughts on the matter?
“Raz,” Oleander groaned. “How many times do I have to tell you? You don't have to sneak in here past security every time you come anymore! You can just come in through the gate! You know, like everyone else?”
“Oh, I know. I just like this way better.”
