2 Works in Pocket God (Comics)
Ooga was more than ready to put the whole 'gem started losing power and the whole tribe nearly died' thing behind him, but not everyone agreed with him. Klik is still bitter about not getting to see the gods himself, even though the gods were actually just a bunch of jerks called totems who can't agree on anything. He's starting to see weird stuff that no one else can. And on top of it all, an awful lot of outside forces seem to be taking a sudden interest in their tribe, and he has no idea what to do about it.
They could at least have the decency to leave him alone while he's fishing.
- Part 1 of Throughout the Realms
On the one hand, he should be glad that Ooga hadn't ever had to deal with the things he had gone through. His life might as well have been tripping from one trauma into another, getting back up, and still managing to squeeze in a few moments of genuine happiness in between.
On the other, Ooga didn't have any real coping mechanisms, because no tragedy stuck for long. He was fire barely held together by skin and blue eyes, blazing up to scorch away the pain and darkness, eternally refusing to back down. Someone like Ooga didn't have time for losing.
Was it wrong to wish that his friend had more experience with loss? Surely some good would have come out of knowing what it was like to be utterly crushed before he lost his best friend?
