Day thirty one (31). Frankenstein. . The monster and his creation. Harnessing galvanism his misguided labours gave birth to creature to be scorned, feared and hated for his difference and grotesque deviation. We feel for his Adam as when we enter this world we do not ask for it and so often those who bring into this world show us no guidance. Our generation is the one without purpose. The grotesquery is the world we inherit in shambles. What heart could have given birth to such a tale 200 years ago? Inktober draws to a close but I hope that the creation from your hands continues to flow. at Cape Town, Western Cape

Day twenty nine (29). Mary Shelley. . Mary Shelley, it was said, after the passing of Percy Shelley at sea, only ever to be identified by the clothing he wore. in the pocket of which Mary had secreted a book of poems, the body was cremated only to find the heart unburnt. It had apparently calcified during a bout of consumption [or tuberculosis] and after it was returned to her she carried it wrapped in one of Percy's poems, Adonais. Has another author conveyed such chilling impulses and made manifest the utter despair of abandonment and loneliness as she? What her heart must have felt is near unimaginable. at Cape Town, Western Cape

Day twenty eight (28). Raven. . Deep into that darkness peering. Long I stood there wondering, fearing, doubting. Dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared dream before. Excerpt from E. A. Poe's "The Raven". Ravens and crows have held a significance and appeared some of my favourite media. From Poe's The Raven to Matthew in @neilhimself 's Sandman. From Odin's Thought and Memory to The Raven King of the faeries. at Cape Town, Western Cape

Day twenty seven (27). Swamp Thing. . What has always been appealing about the Swamp Thing, personally, was his constant question of who he is. Mostly because it lead to why he is. Similarly to Mary Shelley's #Frankenstein he questions his existence, but instead of looking to a creator he asks why he is here and for what purpose while acting as a guardian of the natural world. His grotesque appearance parallels Frankenstein's monster but the justice he seeks is for the earth. at Cape Town, Western Cape

Day twenty five (25). Dark Forest. . The darkness within was palpable... Not like the darkness that the ancients feared; for what they feared in darkness and death was the unknown. They feared uncertainty. What you do not know, you cannot control – and remain powerless. No. This Darkness within the forest knew things, things we we dare not imagine. And with that thought, he stepped forward and in the instance of crossing the treeline his torch went out. at Cape Town, Western Cape

Day twenty four (24). Hunter's Moon. . . Young man came from hunting faint, tired and weary What does ail my Lord, my dearie? Oh, brother dear, let my bed be made For I feel the gripe of the woody nightshade Men need a man would die as soon Out of the light of a mage's moon But it's not by bone, but yet by blade Can break the magic that the devil made And it's not my fire, but was forged in flame Can drown the sorrows of a huntsman's pain This young man he died fair soon By the light of a hunter'e moon 'Twas not by bone, nor yet by blade Of the berries of the woody nightshade Oh Father dear lie and be safe From the path that the devil made - Daniel Pemberton / Samuel Leslie Lee The Devil and the Huntsman at Cape Town, Western Cape

Day Seventeen (17). Werewolf [Ashina]. . . According to the Gokturk ethnogenic myth, the Ashina were half wolf, half man. The offspring of the she-wolf, Asena, and the infant she suckled and raised; fierce warriors and the founders what is now Turkey. In some legends the bite of a werewolf is fatal to a vampire... Interestingly, an often overlooked detail in the downfall of Vlad Tepes [or Caziglu Bey, as he was known by the Turks] was defeated by his Younger brother, Radu Dracula; a Janissary at the command of the Turkish Sultan, and ordered to bring his head back to Constantinople as proof of the Impaler Prince's demise. Easily credited as the noted figure to have been alleged to be a vampire, met his end with his own brother, Radu... [a variation of Rudolf] which as it happens, means "wise old wolf" at Cape Town, Western Cape
