101 Things I've Learned: Listen to the Sidekick

"How long have I known you?"
"All my life."
"Then why won't you tell me where we're going?"
"You won't like it."

Sidekicks are the voice of reason when the main characters are caught up in the quest. They're also the eyes that see the unexpected coming when the heroes are involved in a more important duels. Listen to them. 

"Why didn't you tell me?"
"I did. You weren't listening."

After all, what are sidekicks for if not watching out for the main character? If you have a tag-a-long you might as well make use of it, and if you have an adviser, well:

"I'm your Councilor! I'm supposed to support you!"
