In books like the Sookie Stackhouse (True Blood) series, the paranormal creature in question ‘comes out of the closet’ and makes itself known to the world. Which mythical creature do you wish would come out of the closet for real?
Hell, I’m not picky, I’d take any of them. Unicorns that only virgins could touch, vampires that you had to be wary of on a dark night, werewolves that howled at the moon… Any that would make this world seem a little more like the ones in books.
Thing is, I wouldn’t just want vampires/werwolves/whatever to exist, I’d want to be one. In my head they’d be fully functioning members of society with complete human rights and I’d be so jealous if I couldn’t be one of them.
If I had
to pick… mermaids, I think. My least wished-for would be ghosts. I’m not sure if I believe in them exactly, but even the concept freaks me out.
Oh, I wouldn’t want fairies either. I live near Cottingley Woods, where the Cottingley Fairy Thing happened so we get tourists all year round and we’re all a little sick of fairy crap!
