The description of the Pulse Wave spell (EGtW, p. 188) states the following:
[...] every creature that fails the save is either pulled 15 feet toward you or pushed 15 feet away from you, depending on the choice you made for the spell.
In addition, unsecured objects that are completely within the cone are likewise pulled or pushed 15 feet.
What happens if you pull a creature (or object) that's less than 15 feet away from you?
I haven't found rules that govern this kind of scenario so I'm wondering if there's a general rule that can help me resolve this.
I should note that this is different from the text of Thorn Whip, which has different wording which states that it pulls creatures closer, such that they cannot go past the caster.
I can see any number of interactions that might take place. Do they pass harmlessly through you or inflict any kind of damage on their way past you? Or do they simply stop at your feet? I must say that it makes for a bit of a silly mental image; I have difficulty imagining that a Wizard would hurl other creatures and discarded trash at themselves without any guarantee that they'll stop before arriving.
