Okay "I smote you with this Cupid's Arrow. You are now smitten." makes a certain amount of sense, granted.
Why is it that he has to go around shooting people with Arrows ? Can't he use something like glue ?
Glue doesn't make as big holes. Also, there's a certain satisfaction of pulling that bowstring back and letting the arrow go that you don't get when squidjing blobs of recalcitrant glue outta a tube...*grins*
There's also the fact that glue can be acidic. Well, certain types of glue. And it takes time. I'd prefer a slow, agonizing burn through one's flesh as love also burns and hurts as time goes on, rather than the quick stab in the heart with the arrow's barbs.
I still like the fact that toothpaste is corrosive. Thus, a simple message created with McLeans Triple Stripe on say a large piece of glass, and when it is finally removed, you will find your simple message remains on said piece of glass, execpt you will find it <i>etched in</i>.
