Your World: Unusual Creatures

You may have heard of the Easter Bunny, a magical rabbit who lays colored eggs and hides them for children to find.

Have you heard of this Bunny?  What about other unusual creatures in your world?  Tell us about them!

Oh, yes, I've definitely heard of the Easter Bunny - though I'm not exactly a believer. Hard for an atheist to believe in mythical creatures. Of course, that doesn't mean I haven't experienced my share of unusual critters.

The blind, translucent shrimp and crayfish that populate the depths of Mammoth Cave - where my town of Ruby Hollow is located - are, after all, pretty darn bizarre.

Demons? Mythical, maybe, but real, too.

Not so much angels. Asmodai claims to have killed them all.

Nutmeg Cross said...

Like Devi, I'm an atheist, too, so I don't really believe in demons and angels. Still, it strikes me as sad, Aidan, that your world would be filled with demons, but no angels. Seems a little out of balance... unless there are a lot of good demons, like you and your brother.

Hello, Happy Easter, everyone!

Of course I've heard of the Easter Bunny. I've just been hiding eggs for my nephews and neices.

Devi, Nutmeg... I know atheists don't believe in God, but I didn't realize they don't believe in anything.

Isn't there anything miraculous or magical in your life?

Ginger said...

Aidan, I know that there are angels because my guardian angel convince the gryphons to let you into Belhanor. You'd better take it back or he might come after you with his flaming sword, demanding an apology.

I'm very grateful for my guardian angel, who made sure Kaelin didn't crash us in the Bugatti. Oh my LORD! I almost died of a heart attack, he went so fast.

Marenya said...

We have gryphons of course, which are sort of like angels but more, um, feathery. And sprites and unicorns.

And nightstalkers. They aren't magical, but just very well-trained.

Trained to kill people.

Except for Nighfala.

Aidan said...

Well, that's true. I forgot about the sprites and the unicorns.

And I didn't really see the guardian angel. But sure, Ginger, I'll go with it.

Candy said...

Yes, I also thought it was only God atheists didn't believe in.
I used to get a chocolate rabbit for Easter but never really thought of it being real . This morning I found a miniature carousel horse by my bed and I guess the Easter bunny must have brought it. I love carousel horses!!

Devi Marconi said...

Well, I guess my point was that, as someone who doesn't believe in a mythical creature like God, I find it equally hard to believe in other mythical creatures. Aliens, however, are a different story altogether. ;-)

Kaelin said...

Candy? Who left the horse?

Ginger said...

The Easter Bunny, silly.

Nutmeg Cross said...

Well, I may not believe in God or the Easter Bunny, but I'm a big fan of secret admirers. Maybe you have one, Candy!

Candy said...

Actually, I believe in everything that's fun, beautiful or loving. Why not? No proof one way or another and life would be much greyer without them. I wouldn't receive surprises like my carousel horse or Santa gifts either!

I'm not sure about aliens though, they're usually kind of ugly in pictures I've seen.

Kaelin said...

I think you should be careful, Candy.

Ginger said...

Personally, I think there's a lot more evidence for God than there is for aliens.

I agree with Kaelin. You should be careful if someone is sneaking into your room, Candy.

Devi Marconi said...

Oh, I have to respectfully disagree with you, Ginger. There's a lot more evidence of aliens than God, but one of the greatest things about being human is free will - and the ability to believe whatever we want to believe, as long as such beliefs don't directly hurt others.

Nutmeg Cross said...

While I agree with Devi, I admit that I'm a hopeful skeptic. So, although I think that nature offers enough wonder to keep the world from being gray, I would love to encounter a unicorn or some other mythical creature someday.

And for the record, Candy, I think most aliens are kinda cute.

Great Community here. Keep up the good work people. Backlinks

Galadriel said...

It definately depends on which univere you live on weither aliens are cute.

Ginger said...

ROFL!!! Good one, Galadriel. Those Avatar aliens weren't bad looking.

Laura Martone said...

I thought Paul was pretty cute - even if the movie wasn't as funny as it could have been. I'm just sayin'.

Laura Martone said...

Same goes for the aliens in I AM NUMBER FOUR. Course, I would imagine that Hollywood aliens are a whole different breed. Can't measure attractiveness by their over-the-top standards.

Testing comments.

Laura Martone said...

A little birdy told me there's an issue with Blogger today... so I thought this would give me a chance to jump into the conversation.

Like Devi, I've seen some very unusual creatures down here in Ruby Hollow, but somehow, I think Santa and the Easter Bunny would find it difficult to reach us. Our security's pretty intense.

Laura Martone said...

Oops. That was supposed to be Jesse Littleton talking. Guess Blogger really IS having a bad day. :-(

Sorry, Christine.

Christine Hardy said...

Thanks! Just wanted to check and see if it was just me. LOL.

and, um, hi Jesse!

Ginger said...

Testing the comments again. I think it's fixed.
