What's your favourite mythological creature?

question

#21

Literally just pinned it today, but it says someone called Jorge Luis Borges wrote about it


#22

Yep! I actually own that book :slight_smile:

The Booke of Imaginary Beings, I believe it’s called.


#23

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 :slight_smile:


#24

I’ll have to check the book out then.


#26

From what I know, Jorge was actually a pretty good writer


#27

Dragons. Anything (well almost anything) with such glorious and wonderful beasts and you might have my attention.


#28

That actually gives me an idea for a chapter, thank you :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:


#29

Ay! Me too! But my Shapeshifters in Legend have my heart, and they won’t be giving it back…


#30

Octopus because it’s beautiful and other worldly and my spirit guide.


#31

Are you saying that Octopuses aren’t real?
I knew the government was lying


#32

I think they just don’t get enough attention. I included one in my story though.


#33

Dragon.


#34

If I could, I would do it, but sadly the story is set in the Eastern Siberian Taiga, the biggest forest in Russia


#35

I already have a plan to do a chapter or two on dragons :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:


#36

How about a spider humanoid. Wait, do spiders live there?


#37

Everywhere except Antarctica has spiders, so I guess I could do that at some point


#38

Maybe I should go there, I am terrified of spiders


#39

Same. See you at Davis Station


#40

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.


#41

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.)

Selkies

Huldra

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.
