I mean, what would happen if he did? Would the year just sort of... not change? Would time stop, or something? How- how does that work?

"If you choose to accept it..."
pretty sure if he doesn't take it he gets kicked out of the agency and they need a new Grim

Gah, beaten to the snake joke as I was typing

I dunno, this death *feels* like the way New Death would act, and less...

This makes me think there are more Grims out there.

So who's giving him his orders? God? Satan? Is there a Greater Death like in the Discworld universe?

Hmmm, is this the first time that a year's Zodiac animal has been brought up in the annual Grim vs. The Old Year showdown?

Edit: Ah no, I just saw it was mentioned in 2010 as well.

Maybe he kills the new year instead and gives the old year the new sash, or he can hide the old year and just say he did the mission. Or maybe another reaper takes over.
