Sure, until they succeed in summoning the  dark one.

Sadly, considering the magnitude of Emmet's crush, their life is gonna suck for a bit if Sam's not interested.  I remember being about that close and inseparable with someone, and how hard it hit when she told me that she started going out with $now_husband.  Even five years older and used to such rejections,, that gutted me for a bit.  Still, in the end, things worked out.  They're happy, it turns out that she and I would have been totally incompatible anyway, and with him I gained an additional friend.

I strongly empathise with that because 'being like other humans' has always been a struggle for me.

At the risk of saying something controversial : don't struggle to be like other humans.  Instead be the best *you* that you can be.  In many ways I'm not much like other humans.  But I've been a lot better since I've started pursuing goals other than just being like other humans.  To be blunt it's not what I'm good at. But there are other things that I'm very good at.

You may find in yourself admirable qualities or startling abilities that most humans lack.  If most humans are better  at some things than you, it's because they're playing to their strengths.  If your strengths are different, you shouldn't handicap yourself by doing any less.

Reminds me of a kind recent video of the channel Pursuit of wonder

It took me a few moments of staring to realize that Bubbles meant the protective cover on THE FAN.  I mean, the protective covers on Bubbles and also on Emmett are also missing (and Emmett's was only recently removed).
