*In ''Literature/IncarnationsOfImmortality'', [[GrimReaper Death]] once collected a soul at a party where someone had broken out a badly-enchanted guitar and pair of dancing shoes. They conferred superhuman playing and dancing skill respectively, but made no allowance for the performer having had enough, and the out-of-shape woman who tried the shoes suffered a fatal heart attack.

The next day, Nefir and his imps were forced to dance with the shoes in the floor show.
