The Selfish MateThe Selfish Mate: A Desert Ghoul Folk Tale as Recorded from Oral Form by T. P. Hade of the Nonhuman Cultural Illumination ProjectThe Selfish Mate by Leonca
Once there was a selfish male named Tuuk. His mate was Auwt, and she was a kind, thoughtful female.
It happened that Auwt became ill, and could not exert herself for long without succumbing to exhaustion. Tuuk promised to bring her food until she was strong enough to again leave the den and hunt with him.
On the first night of hunting alone Tuuk discovered a nest of snakes. He dug them up and ate them, so happy to fill his belly he could think of nothing else. When there was only one tiny snake left he remembered his mate. He brought the snake to her and said, “All night I have wandered the territory, and this was all I could find.”
Auwt took it and patted him on the hand. “May a thousand blessings return your generosity,” she said.
On the second night of hunting alone Tuuk discovered a patch of desert melons. He gobbled them up, so h
Lavender the Fairy Princess - Chapter 1Lavender the Fairy Princess - Chapter 1 by Lumenovus
I can think back to the first time I saw him. I didn’t think of the word beautiful as I do now, that came as we grew to know each other. However, I could not stop looking at the traveler that came to my father’s kingdom. It wasn’t simply because he was foreign. My eyes were just drawn to him, and I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to say exactly why.
I am Princess Lavender of the Luna fairies. The Luna tribe is almost the largest in the realm of Faerie, second only to the Sol tribe. If I had been born a boy, I would one day rule the Luna fairies. Instead, my cousin Braxon will rule, since I’ve no brothers. As for me? My father, King Almaden, promised me to the heir of the Sol Fairies, Prince Apollo, as a wife. A purely political move that promised to unite the two most powerful fairy tribes, as well as ruin my life.
Pure Indulgence: Gods and WG - ThanksgivingPart 15: TlalocPure Indulgence: Gods and WG - Thanksgiving by lovelymars908
It was a crisp, chilly day in November. I was preparing for Thanksgiving, and I invited Jorge and his parents from Mexico to join us in Kansas. I and Jorge were chatting about stuff. He said that he had encounters with Tlaloc the rain god. I was happy for some reason. Suddenly, it started to drizzle a little.
A white light appeared and it took form of a man with blue skin and wearing royal Aztec clothes with two rattles hung from his waist. Tlaloc walked toward us. He stared at us with big goggled eyes (snakes coiled around them) and his face was fashioned with long jaguar fangs for front teeth with his upper lip puffed. He was very pleased to see Jorge and even more pleased to see me. As a group, we walked to the autumn house. It had a big yard with fall veggies and apple trees. Tlaloc was impressed by the vegetation (he’s also a fertility god). Speaking of food, I gave Tlaloc some churros and a chocolate pie fresh from the oven.
Desert Ghoul Creation MythThe Shaper Creates Earth from the Carcass of a Lion: A Desert Ghoul Myth as Recorded from Oral Form by T. P. Hade of the Nonhuman Cultural Illumination ProjectDesert Ghoul Creation Myth by Leonca
In the beginning was the black sky, and all matter existed in the form of the few beings which dwelled in it. The stars wandered it like restless flocks of birds. They were pursued by two beings- the Great Lion, which preyed upon them, and The Shaper, who loved their beauty. (Author’s Note- though a god-like figure, The Shaper is viewed more as a force of nature, and does not require worship to encourage him to maintain order in the world.)
The Shaper herded some stars together into clusters which took the shape of beasts capable of fending off the Great Lion, but his work was slow, and the Lion was hungry. The Shaper feared he would be left all alone in an empty sky, so he made up his mind to kill the Lion.
He took the long bone from his leg and scraped away a sharp point on one end with his teeth. This end he thru
