Cats are capricious and cruel, yet they can also be adoring and even fawn over those they favor. Another cat quote here, 'there was once a time when cats were revered as gods, unfortunately all cats instinctively remember this.'
I wanted her to have a truly horrific means of destroying her enemies. A fevered madness could work as well, for there is no rest for those tortured by visions of their own conjuring, tormented until the fever takes their life.
I chose the curse of undying corruption because of the connection with mummies and mummification. I felt that allowing her scratch to be the agent of something so hideous would be particularly unnerving, for someone she flirted with would never be sure whether her touch would bring bliss or doom.

This holds a special place in my heart, for as I type, I am suffering from a hangover :D
A short, but good submission. The only additional information I'd like to know is what exactly is Demon rum made from, and why does "his judgment goes straight to hell somewhat literally". Go to Comment
Interesting, but this one falls flat for me. As far as I can tell this is a nasty tasting liquor that makes people brutish and ugly, but think they are quite the opposite. While this is pretty much true of most liquors, I felt the sub lacked a certain punch, I kept expecting the other boot to drop, so to speak. Go to Comment
Some parallel worlds have different time-flows, like the fabled dwelling-places of the elves: those who visit them under the hill for a night return to find that years have passed in this world. Perhaps it is the gate leading between the worlds which causes the alteration. If a gate were 'misaligned', the shift from '| |' to '| \' or '| /' as it were would lead to that difference, much as a light-beam split and bent by a prism ends up taking a longer path. There might even be a mathematical function linking degree of misalignment to alteration of time-rate.
