writers love to portray immortal characters experiencing time differently as something sad or frightening but what they don’t seem to have realized is that the comedic potential is limitless and, in my humble opinion, extremely underutilized

TIRED:

mortal: this sword is some of my very best work. it took me two whole years to forge.

immortal:
only two years? bah! the craftsmanship that went into my blade is the
result of over a century of labor. that pathetic little butter knife
you carry is but a cheap imitation of what true investment and skill can produce.

WIRED:

mortal: this sword is some of my very best work. it took me two whole years to forge.

immortal: you forged an ENTIRE SWORD in only TWO YEARS?!?!?! holy shit dude.

giving
an immortal a year to complete a task is like setting them a five
thousand word assignment with complete references and appendices due by the next morning

so you’re saying that we should be portraying all immortal beings as grad students?

I’m pretty sure I’m an immortal cryptid, because I completely relate to the immortal in the “wired” scenario.

Mostly, I write stuff. And, like the Egyptians and the Internet, I put cat pictures on my walls. Also, I can read your Tarot.
