    Poor trick or treaters that come to my house! I'll be too busy watching this stream rather than handing sweets out :o Can't wait to see everyone's creativity!

    Let the dead rise 

    The dead do not squabble as this land’s rulers do. The dead do not fight one another. The dead have no desires, no petty jealousies or ambitions. A world of the dead is a world at peace

    Very interesting Halloween events none that I would even be good at doing so my chances are slim to none maybe I will dress up the dog he will probably never come around me again  :p.
  • SoySoySoySoy Member ✭✭
    YES I'm so excited for this!! 
    I really wanna draw something  :o <3
    Now a week-ish into the competition ......

    How I thought I'd handle the drawing:
    Like a proooooo!


    How reality works:
    Drawing proceeds to laugh at me while throwing rubber bands in my face.

  • KratzKratz Member ✭✭✭✭✭
    Make a large ball out of those rubber bands and throw it back twice as hard @SoySoy! You can do it! ;)

    Didin't think I had a chance to win with so many story entries, so I didn't submit. So regret that now... Ashes Team is so generous! Grats to the entries!  Anyway, thought I'd add my story in case some peeps might enjoy it.

                                                   User Name: Horendis

                                                    Entry: Fright or Fight?

    I woke up shaking, a feeling of unease gripped my throat from the nightmare I had just experienced. I swallowed hard and tried to shake off the grogginess. Those creatures I came across yesterday unsettled me to no end. Those spiny teeth, that lily flower on its head. It was a leaping fanged angler – a, a, Flanangler. When I reached for the flower, it lept at me, then two more moved in the murky water. I slipped in the mud, barely escaping.  Can they travel up from the water? Would they creep into my home at night?

    I quickly put on my gear – a feeble attempt at feeling secure…  It was still dark outside. Remnants of my nightmare lingered as I peered out the window. I opened the door, looking around carefully, then slowly trudged past the garden. The smell of soil and floral scents, usually reassuring, heightened my tension as I scanned the darkness. I waited and listened.

    I am now fully aware of every sound coming from my armor - the squeak of the leather, the clank of metal each time I jerk my head round to catch a glimpse of the shifting shadows,

    as my eyes strain to focus at the swaying grass.

    "Ok, this is ridiculous," I say in a voice of reassurance.

    I close my eyes and force my jagged gasps into a long, slow, deep breath. Halfway through my inhale a twig snaps in the distance. My eyes shoot open. The horses announce a threat

    with those spooky noises they make - half cry, half whinny.

    I run towards the corral at the edge of the Freehold. Criticizing thoughts run with me. I placed my Freehold too near the river. I should never have strayed so far from the village. I...

    Just past the corral I skidded to a stop. My heart pounded in my chest like a drunken warrior banging at a tavern door. I was frozen in place. The cries of the horses pushed back far behind me. I couldn't smell the sweet wood smoke from my house. The elk fleeing the area with their glowing antlers bobbing like will o wisps in the night did not register.

    The eyes... Big as shields and full of hate stared right at me. The great beast before

    me let out bellowing roar that seemed to shake the world around me. That horrible, rotting, breathy smell snapped me back to reality. A great shield wall rose up before me, lights flashed and the whoosh of arrows announced this beast was being pursued. A satisfying grin spread across my face. Fear, smell, sight and sound all rushed into my arm as I unsheathed my blade as adrenalin and courage flowed out as a battle cry.

    Goodbye fright, hello fight. It is on!

    love it @horendis

    I was too slow in posting my costume too (albeit cheesy). Your story rocks, great effort!
