You ever just sit and side-eye your divination tool(s) after a Deity / Power / Spirit reveals a semantic loophole?
“Leaving” has certain meanings on Their side, so They technically were Leaving. But Leaving doesn’t always have to have the same meanings here in Midgard, so from my side, They didn’t actually Leave. It’s more like They’re so busy that Someone else took a call from Them and passed on a message?
Leaving without actually doing so. So, I kind of gained some People back Who Left during earlier stages of the burning period.
I hope we don’t play word games like this every time Leap day rolls around.
