No, and your allusions are contrived to be disparaging and
misleading. The initiation is usually (at least in my case) an
epiphany which precedes and guides a lifetime of work.

No. I suspect you may have missed it, but the leading "b" in 'black
arts' isn't usually capitalized unless it refers to the art of Black
people. Black humor and the black arts are completely different
things, even though they seem to have a common denominator, life.
Black humor seems to be geared to the perpetuation of life and black
humor seems to geared to the eventuality of death.

convinced you that he loved you and was showing you the right way to
act, according to him.
Hmmm. I could be wrong, but...
