Christmas Aisle Inspiration

By:

Inspiration comes from strange places

Where do you get your ideas?
This is a question I am frequently asked. I imagine that some of you reading this have also been asked this same question. Most of the time, the only answer I care to give is a shrug of the shoulders and the common ‘I dunno, just happens.’

Now it just so happens, there is a specific location that seldom fails to get my creative motor running. I will take pictures of the things that I find in this location with my cell phone. Sometimes I refer back to it as I am writing, sometimes not. I felt I would like to share this inspiration with you, as well as putting the submissions inspired by it together in this codex.

Thank you, as always, for reading.

Cristata By: Scrasamax ( Lifeforms ) Third Kingdom - Any

In the bleak midwinter frosty wind made moan, Earth stood hard as iron, Water like a stone; Snow had fallen, snow on snow, Snow on snow, In the bleak midwinter, Long ago.

I added a bit of my Christmas inspiration from the WINTER quest. I hope you don't mind the intrusion but I think it fits.

The Candle-Eyed Man

       By: Murometz

The third son of a candle-maker, and secretly a spy, Tsiao Fong Wei betrayed his family, clan, and town to the merciless Qongg Dynasty, causing the deaths of his own family members. He survived to an old age hiding out in the country side and keeping a low profile. One day however, the “Paper Knife” finally found Tsiao Fong Wei , and exacted his revenge on behalf of the folk, dead and tortured.

After a furious struggle, the “Paper Knife” plunged twin burning candles into the eyes of the traitorous old man and laughed, as Tsiao Fong Wei howled in dismay and pain. Some say Tsiao Fong Wei died that day. Others say that the old man somehow escaped despite his sudden anguish and utter blindness.

The truth is lost to time.

But to this day the children of the Red-Ridge County towns and villages are told by their parents to always beware twin lights in the darkness and to never venture into the woods at night, and to keep an ear open for the Groaning Ghost, for somewhere out there Tsiao Fong Wei the Traitor, now a vengeful spirit, stumbles about the darkness moaning and wailing, candles still sticking forth from out of his otherwise empty eye sockets. And though the candles plunged into his eyes all those years ago were a’flame going in, now the wax protuberances are somehow lit from within and burn without, and two flickering lights in the darkness, always portend his coming.
