The Sidekick Advent Calendar: Grand Finale Fight Special!

Christmas is a time for fighting. Why else would we do it with such regularity? In this spirit, Jon and K have engaged their respective champions to go at it in a charming vignette we call ‘Violent Night’. They’ll be doing this via the Beat ‘Em Up form from Coin Opera II. In this form, each player writes a couplet, the first line of which must ‘block’ their opponent by nouning the verbs in the line directly above. Have at you!

Jon’s Champion:

Jólakötturinn, the Icelandic Yule Cat, who eats lazy children who have not finished their work by Christmas.

K’s Champion:

Frau Perchta, Alpine spirit who takes her approach to festive child discipline straight from the school of Krampus, tearing out the guts of her victims and replacing them with rubbish.

Merry Christmas, everyone!

With special thanks to Mental Floss for a fascinating article on Christmas monsters.
