See, that’s the thing with you fleshsacks! You think I can just clap my hands and SHAZAM, a perfectly suitable vessel complete with two eyes and shaven back hair. But trust me, haha, it’s not that easy!
Possession is a two-sided job! Sure, I might be able to con my way through it, but unless the other sap plays into that handshake, I’m stuck.
And trust me, I know exactly what you’re gonna say: “But Bill! Why don’t you just go possess a dead guy?” Well, sure, bein’ a zombie sounds like a walk in the gravestone-filled park, but when’s the last time you’ve ever seen a corpse give a fully conscious handshake? And don’t say that guy from The Sixth Sense, ‘cause that doesn’t count!
Point is, I’m pretty limited when it comes to getting “my own body,” cause there’s always gonna be that pesky little leftover spirit. Plus, I gotta deal with whatever issues the body itself is dealing with–which, in Pine Tree’s case, was a heck'f a lot more than I bargained for!
And as for Poolcheck, ha, I see where you’re coming from, kid! Got a decent build, good stamina…a bit too sunburnt for my taste, but hey, you can’t get picky.
But when it comes to possession, believe me! I know the handshake just wouldn’t work out.
…For a number of reasons.
