Tall Tails

OK so Thursday the boys will be fighting a Trickster (or so says weekly World) now ther are 2 ways I coudl take this and they both relate to the definition. 

DEf 1 - the hero who works in oppisition.  This is the guy who does important things for humanity - but gets his teeth kicked in for it.  He (or she) is often a god (or culture hero) assocated closly with eliments - particularly with Fire or Water.  This would include gods like Loki and the culture heros prometithas, coyote, spider, rabbet and Merlin.  These are important people - they bring us fire and medican and, basicly, every creative thing ever.  Honistly I think Sam and Dean kinda fit into this catagory as well.  They do an important job and get thier teeth kicked in for it. 

DEF 2 - the fairytail chericter who sometimes stands against the hero and sometimes helps the hero.  They may be house sprits (like Pooka) or just 'the scoundrel who never lies" these are practical jokers - who often let the joke get out of hand.  They may mislead the hero (or other chericters) but don't actuly lie.  If you want a good example of this type watch Jared's chericter in Cry_Wolf - I can't think of any ohters right now... 

Anyway I'm guessing the boys will be up against this second kind - part of me is already chuckling about the two types of Trickster comming up against each other.
