[Master Post – Glass]
Title: Crystalline
Fandom: Viridian Legacy/Fear Mythos
Characters: Sebastian, the Black Dog (?), the Cold Boy
Rating: T (L2 N0 S0 V2 D0)
Warnings: This is potentially really triggery. Depression, cold, hidden secrets, suicidal urges.
Notes: I said this was going to happen. In fact, I think I said it about an hour ago. I'm still working the bugs out, but I suspect this is going to turn out to be less straight Black Dog and more of some sort of Black Dog/Mother of Snakes combination Fear. Sebastian totally thinks it's a dog, here, though. I think this will end up turning into what's already manifested as his Demons in the Dark. Sort of a fear of people knowing what you once were or of waking up to discover that nothing has changed and that's still what you are. An eternity of self-doubt woven into justified terror of persecution for those hidden failings. The Eye, you say? Yeah, but not. It's nothing about actual wrongdoing. It's about wrong-being. It's about hiding the corruption you were given, that's been visited upon you, not hiding the corruption you've chosen. It's a post-Wooden Girl sort of fear. I'm seeing the Demons as some manifestation of post-traumatic stress disorder.

Warnings: Snake-lady in a bikini.
Notes: So, I did this months ago, I swear. I apparently never posted it, tho… If you're not familiar with the Fear Mythos, I encourage you to check out the Fear Mythos Wiki, which lists all the fears and … most of the projects that have used them. In particular, here's the writeups for the Mother of Snakes (fear of what you have become) and the Black Dog (fear of having your secrets revealed). I think they go well together, and I actually meant to start a Fear blog with the two of them working together, but it never really got off the ground.
