Fringe, ch. 2 :iconthevizir:thevizir 0 1
Fringe and the Angel
I took a deep breath in, locked my claws together, and cracked my knuckles.
"Right...." I muttered to myself, going over the profile of the next one here. "Samatha O'Brian, 11. Fear of dogs, insects, performing poorly at school, and the monster that lives under her bed."
I smirked at the irony of that last one. After all, it's the monster in the closet you really have to be afraid of.
Setting my shoulders, I slowly slid open the closet door before me. Twisted shadows roiled forth as the barriers between Shadow and the realm of mortals was pierced.
A grin filled with entirely too many fangs split my face. "Showtime."
I let my hold on my body go, and from merged into the billowing shadows. This would be easy haunting. I'd just slink under her bed, and begin clawing until she woke up. Mimic a dog growling, maybe rip at her sheets. It only took, what, thirty minutes the last few times? Then I'd have a nice, solid meal to see me through the night. Which meant that I could get back to that b

The Bogeyman
The Bogeyman has thirteen heads
Thirteen heads and thirteen hands
The first head's mouth holds twisted lies
Lies that twist the hearts of man
The second head thinks of naught but greed
Greed that wants for all that's grand
The third head sings songs of the deeps
The deeps that rise to drown the land
The fourth head shrieks in bloody rage
Rage too many wars have fanned
The fifth head is a stump of rot
Rot twining plague through your glands
The sixth's head breath brings winter's frost
And frost-bit crops 'pon viney strand
The seventh head's teeth rend and gnash
Gnash on your bones in dark woodlands
The eighth head whispers vile curses
Curses your soul to Hell, damn'd
The ninth head tells secrets of your death
Death in the dark, just as planned
The tenth head burns and blazes black
Black as your bones in desert sands
The eleventh head trades 'way your pain
More pain's the price the knives demand
The twelf

Oh, this was bad. Very, very bad. Boss wasn't going be happy at all.
Flint paced back and forth, casting nervous glances at his computer's screen, hoping beyond the hope the poll's results would have miraculously changed over the five seconds since he last looked at the screen.
They didn't.
"Okay," he muttered to himself, adjusting his tie nervously, somehow making him look even more dishevelled. His normally well-pressed suit had become a wrinkled mess hung over the back of his chair, his slick hair now looked more greasy than professional, his face marred with week-old stubble, and his predatory golden eyes looking more like those of a frantic prey animal. In short, it was evident to anyone who took a look at him that Flint was not having a good day.
"Okay. This will all turn out okay. We can still turn this around. We can-"
The ringing of his telephone nearly made Flint jump out of his own skin, which was about the last thing he needed today. Taking a few breaths to calm himself, he

Horror Shop: A primer on Horrors
"...from ghoulies and ghosties and long-legged beasties and things that go bump in the night, good Lord, deliver us!"
The thing under your bed. The monster in your closet. The shadow lurking at the edge of your vision. The grey-suited man from the government agency that doesn't exist. The black beast you swore was following you. The thing outside your window, right now, watching you, vanishing when you turn your head. The creeps and the freaks and the creatures and the beasts and the things that go bump in the night. Mythologies across many worlds speak of haunting creatures that torment children and adults alike, such as oni, sack men, babau, shadow people, los cucuys, butzemenn, bogies, or jumbies.
They're all real. They are all more terrifying than the tales say.
And they hunger for your fear.
Horrors are created when a critical mass of fear-tainted anima is sent into the Pit. The shear rejection and terror the once-vital s

Just to be clear, the Kithkin are an extraterrestrial, alien race, correct? And Cirundi is an alien planet completely unrelated to earth, right?

Usually, yes, the kithkin are an extraterrestrial, alien race, and Cirundi is another planet unrelated to Earth; though I did use a map of Carboniferous Earth as a base for the map before tweaking it (and I will probably continue tweaking the world until it reaches the point that I'm happy with it). 

Now, this is not always true, as in my current Pathfinder game, Cirundi is a continent on the planet that was sunk beneath the waves, and thus the kithkin are not extraterrestrial, but merely not from the Lands of Mists, not unlike the kitsune, catfolk, vanara, or wayang. It all depends on what kind of story I want to use them in at the moment!
