You know, there’s something to be said for punctuation. It can be many things: a tool, a toy, a clarifier. It’s mighty powerful, this punctuation stuff. Just LOOK at how helpful the hyphen is here in the opening scene of The Witcher: Blood Origin when Jaskier is in disbelief (and fear, Jaskier-style) upon hearing Seanchaí’s message to him about his destiny and path as The Sandpiper.
He says, “I beg to differ. You — you are a time–stopping, shape–shifting, probably–gonna–eat–me–without–salt–at–some–point sort of story teller.”
Dang! How I do love a well-placed hyphen!
