PHOTO     *************** LIGHT  *****************     PHOTO

Play 3 scenes.

  Witch and Demon, choose one character each.

  Witch, frame a scene between them.

  Everything/everyone else: shared authority.

  Both:

    * Establish relationships;
    * Show something personal and important.

  Demon, introduce a Crisis. Resolve it with the Oracle between them.

  Draw it on both characters.

Play 3 more scenes.

  Witch, now, before Crisis resolution, you can move one character to another corner.

  Resolve the Crisis, for the still character, with the old Oracle; for the moved character, with the Oracle on the side between their old and new corner.

  Draw the Oracles on the photos accordingly.

Narrate a different finale for each photo, accounting for and starting from the most widely distributed Oracle on each, and burn them.

  Demon, break ties.

  Say:

    * Witch: which headshot portrayed you;

    * Demon: the cost for their powers;

    * Witch: why you took the deal.

  Burn everything else.
