Fairy Tale Week
Catching up to the bandwagon, this is what will be happening to my characters during Fairy Tale week.
Alessa will be taking on the role of the priestess from the Silent Hill fairy tale, "The Monster and The Priestess" For the entirety of the plot, Alessa will often say things in Latin, and will be acting somewhat akin to a pagan priestess. Her root personality however, will not be changing.
And here's the story.
Fairy tale, Beginning Once upon a time, there was a monster living at the gates of a village. It was a very scary and a very bad monster. It would catch people and crunch them up with its big teeth.
The villagers were afraid of the monster, and no one would dare appraoch the gates. Everyone was stuck inside the village.
When the king heard about this, he summoned his knights. The knights eagerly rode out to defeat the monster.
"Ha! Take that!" Their swords slashed and their spears flashed, but the monster wouldn't die. The monster tossed the knights into his mouth one by one, horses and all.
What was the king to do? He fretted and fussed and paced the floor, but could think of no solution.
Soon after, the village priestess came to the castle. She was a very kind and good person. The king asked her to defeat the monster guarding the gates.
Fairy tale, continued The priestess accepted the king's request and went to the village gates. But when she saw the monster, she tried to convince it with words instead of killing it.
"Shut up, you! I'm going to eat you up!" The monster didn't listen to a word the priestess said.
But she kept trying to convince the monster to give up. "It's wrong to eat people, you know."
The monster grew very angry at this and attacked her, killing her with a single mighty blow.
Fairy tale, Last Part The king and his people shed tears at the death of the kind priestess. God took pity upon them and, granting their wishes, healed the priestess.
The priestess opened her eyes just as she had done every morning of her life. She went once more to the monster's lair.
"Fool! You wish to die again?" "No... this time it's your turn." The priestess had come to defeat the monster once and for all.
As the priestess was very very kind, she felt sad about this task. But it had to be done.
"Swords and spears won't work. Arrows and bullets will just bounce off. You can't kill me," the monster laughed. But the priestess used neither sword nor spear. She chanted but a single spell.
"TU FUI, EGO ERIS." Do you know what happened then? The monster let out a huge cry and then died and vanished!
Thus the villagers were able to use their gates once more. Everyone lavished their gratitude upon the priestess, and they all lived happily ever after.
Raziel will be taking on the role of the discharged soldier from The Devil's Sooty Brother. For the entire plot, Raziel will be unable to bathe, wash, or trim himself. No matter how groddy he looks, no matter how bad he smells, he will not be able to do the aforementioned things.
If asked where he's come from, Raziel will answer "from Hell" and when asked who he is, he'll answer, "The Devil's sooty brother."
Flauros will be taking on the role of the Devil from How the Devil Married Three Sisters. For the duration of the week, Flauros will be seized with the desire to marry, and will do anything, and everything he can to persuade one of the women to marry him. Of course this won't work, but that won't stop Flauros from trying.
