don’t pick at the dream scabs, weird stuff might leak out
The SpindleQueen [ full view ]
While spindles are frequently described as being similar to spiders or ticks with varying numbers of legs and a penchant for hiving like termites in flesh rather than wood, it’s confirmed they are biologically far removed from any known lifeforms, supernatural or otherwise, and they likely did not originate in Metacore at all.
Where spindles come from is anyone’s guess, but they are incredibly unnatural, so much so no other fauna is known to willingly eat them, even if starving, and even certain outsiders will avoid areas with an infestation.
I’m leaning for this version. I liked the tick idea, but since it actually is one that can actively fight back, a bloated tick body wouldn’t be conducive to that :0
I also like the ‘plastic sheet’ thing, I imagine when it’s sitting motionless, the plastic over where its mouth should be is sucked in and out as it ‘breathes’ and looks creepy.
So Friday has more or less become my unofficial ‘build up my tolerance for social stress/agoraphobia by going to the coffee shop at 10 pm and drawing monsters + the occasional childhood toon doodle and such at the behest of other customers for awhile’ night oao
Cleaned up those sketches.
This thing, who I sometimes like to call Lullaby
more like LullaBYE is a demonic abomination / monster-of-the-week in PD, and is a creature that hypnotizes/renders passive and eternally comatose those that fall under its charm. It is unknown (yet) what Lullabye plans to do with everyone it captures, if anything, but since you don’t respawn unless you actually die, unless someone saves you, you’re kind of stuck being incapacitated, but not dead. Forever.
While only Lullabye’s own eyes and voice can potentially hypnotize anyone, the ‘facehugger’ things it uses to do most of its ‘gathering’ can only affect ‘prone’ people, those with complicated, troubled, or no relationship with their moms, and to them appears as their mom being open or willing to talk ((or in the case of those who never knew theirs, a generically maternal but customized figure that acts like they’ve been searching fro them)). After confusing or hypnotizing the target, they attach to their face, and return ‘home’.
They are extremely inexact with what qualifies as a ‘troubled relationship’, and will redefine it to whatever will work to their advantage; even Timothy is rendered useless and is captured in this situation because while his relationship with his adopted mother is perfectly fine, Lullabye knows he’s never met his ‘real’ mom and he has some degree of curiosity about who she was.This is enough to count, apparently.
As such, it’s basically up to HG, her parents, and three other unspecified characters to save the day today.
