So you are saying that sunlight has magical powers?
Yes, over evil it does. You see, it is full of purity. It destroys monsters.
Right. There is a certain orange monster I’d like to expose to the sunlight… Unfortunately it doesn’t seem to work with human monsters.
Maybe not, but it does other, more supernatural monsters. Case in point, trolls?
I read The Hobbit. They turn to stone.
Uhm. Let’s see, I think they burn up.
Hmmmm. Makes them take a nap?
No! They turn back into their human form not remembering what happened under the full moon.
Right. And I’m sure you are going to tell me that it turns witches into wood. Like in Monty Python. Burn them!
Well, now that you mention it…
I’ll believe it when I see it.
Oh, so you are saying there are some wicker witches out there?
Something like that. Let’s take a walk, I’ve something to show you….
(If you can’t see the prompt, the image shows three figures that seem to be female and made of branches, with their hands joined. Witches dancing? Perhaps caught mid-step by the sunlight?)
