* Rather than drawing Death repeatedly, in the WhateleyUniverse, Gypsy (a precog with a long family history and an ancestral Tarot deck) does a reading for Carmilla (who is literally more than half-demon). The first card is 'the Devil'. So is each successive card. When someone else turns over ''the same card'', he gets the Three of Wands. Because the deck is alive and magical too.

* In Creator/DianaWynneJones's ''Literature/TheMerlinConspiracy'', the ''Literature/AgeOfFire'' Series, Wistala plays this part first as an act when a new Merlin is introduced to give a prophecy, he begins weeping and faints. The audience is unimpressed, and complain that they wound up traveling with a circus, then later in order to infiltrate the dwarvish Wheel of Fire empire. She's actually very successful on account of being a rare dragon seer and one of her wild predictions coming true rather publicly.
** After she leaves
the 'weepy' kinds circus, she's replaced by the human girl Iatella, who appears to be the genuine article, given how she accurately foretells Wistala reuniting with her brothers and hinting at the events that follow, before passing out in shock.
* This occurs in ''The Message'', the fourth book in the ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'' series. Both Cassie and Tobias receive psychic messages from a distance; when they do, they pass out simultaneously. It turns out that these messages are the thought-speak
of seer.Ax, who's trapped in the Andalites' crashed Dome Ship.
* ''Anthem of a Reluctant Prophet'' describes a few of these from a first-person perspective. It turns out that when the titular prophet foresees a death by gunfire, he actually feels the bullets. Ouch.



* In the ''Literature/ChaletSchool'' series, [[spoiler:Fiona [=Mc=]Donald]] turns out to be one. She uses her psychic powers to tell Joey in ''Highland Twins'' that [[spoiler:Joey's husband Jack, who was thought to have drowned, is actually alive and well, albeit injured.]] She falls into a long sleep afterwards.
* ''Literature/ChildhoodsEnd'' features a group of party-goers trying out a Ouija board. Clarke, being a [[MohsScaleOfScienceFictionHardness hard science fiction writer]], explains the Ouija board's mysterious powers by way of subconscious personal knowledge from at least one of the planchette-holders. One of the members asks what planet the [[BenevolentAlienInvasion Alien Overloads]] come from. When the Ouija gives out an answer (which turns out to have been 100% accurate), one of the women faints (who turns out to have been the person who subconsciously knew the answer).
* ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfPrydain'': Hen Wen (a clairvoyant ''pig'') in ''The High King'', including a combination of terrified refusal to pass on her visions, and bizarre, nonsensical prophecies before the oracular sticks shatter and she goes into HeroicBSOD.
* ''Literature/CircleOfMagic'': Zhegorz Fiavrus, from ''Cold Fire'' and ''The Will of the Empress'', can't see the future, but can see distant images on the wind. This has slowly driven him mad, and he gets very agitated when he sees anything important: "Game pieces, game pieces! See the pretty game pieces, the ladies and the mages, two in one, a nice long game of capture the pieces!"

Harry discovers that the leader of the villains blocked the second part of the prophecy - that if Harry didn't get involved, the whole ''city'' would die.

Sometimes the interruption means that the prophecy in question is incomplete -- in some cases when the seer dies or the props are destroyed, it's because an interested third party is trying to hide the outcome. What all this amounts to is a psychic version of TheWorfEffect, and is equally popular with [[{{Telepathy}} telepaths]] and [[TheEmpath empaths]]. You know shit's serious when the team psi keels over in the middle of a scan.
