Silly god poll for Mikulas morning

Please note: these questions pertain to works of fiction and use of deities/spirits therein, not to interactions with deities/spirits in your real-world belief system. Also, if you answer that the use of Japanese spirits in fiction gives you a pain, no one will assume that you mean all such uses. Just that uses that give you a pain tend to crop up, that many authors have a habit of annoying you by using these elements badly or frustratingly.

lydy was surprised and amused by the vehemence of my answer to the first question at dinner last night, which is why I thought to have a silly poll of this sort to begin with.
