23. "RE: (teaser 2) S5M6 TbS2 Goodbye & Hello"
In response to message #22
Part of me enjoys thinking that the much-alluded-to betting pool features everyone on Asgard for the sake of completeness (except maybe Skuld, though frankly some people will bet on anything), maintained by some kind of Valkyrie super-important systems-wallah or similar thing; because so few people actually know about it, to hear that you're on it rapidly renders it a self-fulfilling prophecy. You thus start to fixate on Corwin, giving him a little more thought than normal, making him a teeny bit more needed than he might otherwise be.
Thus, his propensity for random awesome crap to work in his favour.
Gentlemen, the truth is out at last; The Corwin Bowl is an extremely advanced infohazard designed to protect and empower a young deity finding his feet in the mortal realm.
