Literally just pinned it today, but it says someone called Jorge Luis Borges wrote about it
Yep! I actually own that book
The Booke of Imaginary Beings, I believe it’s called.
Jorge Luis Borges was an Argentine writer and I’m happy he’s getting recognized for his work.
The Peryton is actually pretty cute-looking, maybe I can include it in a future chapter
I’ll have to check the book out then.
From what I know, Jorge was actually a pretty good writer
Dragons. Anything (well almost anything) with such glorious and wonderful beasts and you might have my attention.
That actually gives me an idea for a chapter, thank you
Ay! Me too! But my Shapeshifters in Legend have my heart, and they won’t be giving it back…
Are you saying that Octopuses aren’t real?
I knew the government was lying
I think they just don’t get enough attention. I included one in my story though.
If I could, I would do it, but sadly the story is set in the Eastern Siberian Taiga, the biggest forest in Russia
I already have a plan to do a chapter or two on dragons
How about a spider humanoid. Wait, do spiders live there?
Everywhere except Antarctica has spiders, so I guess I could do that at some point
Maybe I should go there, I am terrified of spiders
Same. See you at Davis Station
That’s good. In my experience at first reading a story about dragon, i thought its weird because of its humongous size. Then as I read along, i fell for the character and its cool.
IDK how helpful mine will be since none of my favorites really lend themselves to traditional fantasy worlds (maybe the selkies?). I like the weird ones.
Golems (Though I would advise gentiles to not use them unless you’re fully invested in incorporating their lore. Using golems without Judaism is…not a good look.)
Yōkai (Some particular favorites are the Tanuki aka “raccoon puppy with massive testicles” and the Shirime aka “eye in butt hole man”)
Also, the psychedelic heart-eating hell unicorn that ate Garry’s nipple on Legends of Tomorrow.
