Vindictive stones, ensnared dimensions, and a talking planet were ripping away the reality he thought he knew. He needed to find his place in it all.
If you ignore everything I've warned about here (and more I haven't even thought to mention), don't come whining to me when your finished product gets challenged. Don't whimper, "Damned if you do and damned if you don't," and expect me to have an abundance of sympathy.
Ethnicity isn't irrelevant. People of color aren't just white people with darker skin. I realize this sounds like a ridiculous statement. My point: People aren't just a collection of differently shaped and colored features, with varying abilities and gifts. Culture exists.
