Hey friends! Today’s #fan#fantasywipoctober is a two-part question, so let’s get into it 🐾 . Q1: Have I made any new species in my #wip ? Ans: All the “people” in my story are human, though they fall into two categories: Elemike (those who can manipulate one of the seven elements) and Albike (those without elemental powers). The only non-human creature I pulled from my mind is the two-legged cat/furby animal I posted about a lil while back. Most of my animals, though, are inspired by pre-existing animals/mythological creatures/myths (most notably the qilin and camazotz). 🐾 . Q2: What’s the creepiest species in my story? Ans: Almost all of my creatures fall in the “oh-shit-run-the-other-way” category as opposed to creepy. BUT there is one I think is pretty creepy: the khazela, otherwise known as the Face-Stealer. No one knows if it’s a species or simply one entity, but it can “wear” the face of anyone you know to lure you closer. It’s true form is inspired by a picture I haven’t been able to relocate in YEARS, and…well, I don’t want to give away too much, so I gave you a peek at Simone’s initial reaction upon encountering the khazela 😱. 🐾 . #wri#writingunity #wri#writermunity #amwriting #amwritingfantasy #fantasywriter #blackfantasy #blackwriter #blackwomenwriters #nafantasy #fantasy #writing #writer #writersofinstagram #fantasybooks #newadultfantasy #writersofig #fantasyfiction
