No Tinder is fun
-virgil and cain (alongside the other rumspringa) are taught how how to get out of the niederung and into outer bow/tenth bow, then expressely forbidden from ever going. this is a lesson on self control and obedience to god and state in the face of temptation
-regardless/due to the nature of the rumspringa, many of them become unofficial guides for people who fall into die niederung and wish to go. cain and virgil are two such guides, although they rarely risk it now that they’re stable in their reputations as medium and exorcist.
-linguistically, people =\= humans
-if they get caught they are put on trial and face possible church-exorcism, which is different than folk-exorcism. church exorcism is a period of harsh labor/abuse, ending with a retrial for expulsion from die niederung. most people leave before they can be expelled.
-they get caught, cain and virgil get sentenced to church-exorcism, mayra does some kind of witchcraft/astral fuckery that scares the gvt so bad that they just skip to the part where everyone gets banished so cain and virgil will take her away from die niderung (frog coming out of mouth, frogs manifesting in people’s mouths, plagues inspired)
**i need/want to make a map!! it all has to be on the same planet for now
**what gives mayra juice? how is she the coolest? keep thinking

virgil ranger and cain wayne are cousins because i Give Up on spiritually connecting them in a more complex manner
-both are sun bleached, goth cowboy albino amish and i should really just do some art for them
-virgil ranger is a medium that the majority of the rumspringa elders fear and shun and the majority of the rest have gone to in the middle of the night for answers.
-cain wayne, his cousin, is a stagecoach driver and petty criminal. she stays out of trouble through her reputation as an excorcist of immense power.
-the rumspringa/albino amish literally ascended planes of conciousness through their rejection of media and technology. they now act as brokers, messengers, etc between psychic and physical beings.
-represented by the tarot card Justice (cain and virgil become minor arcana)

The thing about opening up options that were previously closed to people, by breaking down societal taboos and stuff like that, is that it not only benefits the people who choose those new paths, but it also benefits the people who chose the old paths.
Sometimes it’s hard to fully appreciate something if you’re forced into it. Have you ever experimented with a new thing, trying it out, and after a while you’re like:
“Naw, this doesn’t really fit. It’s not me.”
And you go back to the old thing and you’re like:
and you now have a new enthusiasm for the old thing, the thing that you had been with for your whole life. It reminds me a little of the Amish concept of Rumspringa, whereby young people in some Amish communities go out and experience the outside world, and are free to leave the community to enter society at large if they wish. Most of them come back and choose to officially join the church as adults.
And this is one of the benefits of opening up new possibilities and freedoms for people. It not only helps the people who really want to take those paths or embrace those choices, but it also helps a lot of the people who don’t.
Luke takes Rey on the Jedi version of Rumspringa and they get shit faced across the Galaxy.
