Anonymous said: Hello! Sorry for bothering you, but I was looking for a book that I found a long time ago, but never bought and never remembered the title. It was a collection of mythological beings, and I remember only one entry- it was about a shapeshifting-genie-like creature, which protected sleeping humans every night, however, if the human dies, so did the creature. At any time, the creature could choose to leave the human. It was depicted as a humanoid with a tiger's head. Thank you for reading this.

Hello Anon! You’re no bother at all! (I just forget this blog exists). 

That sounds like an awesome story, and I wish you could remember the name of the anthology. I’ll keep my eyes and ears open for it. Thank you for telling me about it!

What do you call a man who is short, speaks in rhymes, and is able to spin straw into gold?

No really I’m not joking here, he’s coming for my firstborn in three days and I need to figure out his name.

The Irish werewolf is different from the Teutonic or European werewolf, as it is really not a “monster” at all. Unlike its continental cousins, this shapeshifter is the guardian and protector of children, wounded men and lost persons. According to some ancient sources, the Irish werewolves were even recruited by kings in time of war. Known in their native land as the faoladh or conroicht, their predatory behaviour is typical of the common wolf, not beneath the occasional nocturnal raid

“I begin tucking him into bed and he tells me, “Daddy check for monsters under my bed.” I look underneath for his amusement and see him, another him, under the bed, staring back at me quivering and whispering, “Daddy there’s somebody on my bed.”” From What is the best horror story you can come up with in two sentences. : AskReddit (via brocatus)
