It’s 24 days ‘till Halloween! So excited to hear creepy stories and stuff circling around the neighborhood! Halloween season is just around the corner so for the course of this whole month of October I will be posting Halloween/autumn related blogposts in celebration of #Blogoween.
Blogoween is basically a month-long event co-organized by these two lovely bloggers named Clo @ Book Dragons and Sam @ Fictionally Sam. If you want to know more about Blogoween you can click here and it will redirect you to the original post.
Happy blogging this month of October!
P.S. Sorry for the very very late post. School sucks L, but I’ll make sure to accomplish the level I picked for blogoween which is ’13 Days of Blogoween’, wish me luck!
For today’s prompt, the topic is about Creepy Crawlies, or fictionalmonsters/creatures that you would hate to encounter IRL. This prompt is hosted and inspired by Kaleena @ Reader Voracious, make sure to check out her blog!
HERE ARE TOP 5 CREATURES/MONSTERS I WOULDN’T WISH TO MEET IN REAL LIFE
- Basilisk from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
“Of the many fearsome beasts and monsters that roam our land, there is none more curious or more deadly than the Basilisk, known also as the King of Serpents. This snake, which may reach gigantic size, and live many hundreds of years, is born from a chicken’s egg, hatched beneath a toad. Its methods of killing are most wondrous, for aside from its deadly and venomous fangs, the Basilisk has a murderous stare, and all who are fixed with the beam of its eye shall suffer instant death. Spiders flee before the Basilisk, for it is their mortal enemy, and the Basilisk flees only from the crowing of the rooster, which is fatal to it.“—Most Macabre Monstrosities
IT’S A FREAKING GIANT SNAKE OKAY? THE KING OF SERPENTS, BY SALAZAR SLYTHERIN.
I don’t have a thing with snakes but a GIANT snake is a different conversation. I would literally run (if i could) and scream if ever I meet the Basilisk.
Not only it will make you Petrified with indirect contact, it will also KILL you immediately when seen directly. I don’t even know what’s worse, being killed or petrified. The modern world can’t relate, you can’t cure petrified victims without magic.
- Pennywise from IT
“Oh, yes…they float, Georgie…they float…and when you’re down here with me…YOU’LL FLOAT TOO!”
- ―It (to George Denbrough)
Seriously I literally don’t know the full identity of Pennywise. He just looks like a freaking clown who got fired in a childrens party, and now he seeks for revenge by killing off some people. He’s a creepy ass clown tbh.
I have read he have shape-shifting abilities which makes him shape-shift to other persons, entity which makes it more creepy and intriguing.
- Hungarian Horntail from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
“Supposedly the most dangerous of all dragon breeds, the Hungarian Horntail has black scales and is lizard-like in appearance. “—Description of a Hungarian Horntail
The Hungarian Horntail is completely native in Hungary (thankfully), and is regarded as “one of” or rather THE most dangerous out of all breed of dragons.
So if you don’t have a BROOM, can’t use spells to levitate things, NOT HARRY POTTER, or just not even a FREAKING WIZARD you literally can’t stand a chance with the horrifying beast.
- Nagini from the Harry Potter Series
“You know Voldemort’s snake, Neville? He’s got a huge snake… Calls her Nagini… It’s got to be killed.“—Harry Potter arranges for Nagini to be slayed
It’s pretty much evident now that this list consists mostly of Harry Potter creatures and monsters. LOL.
Well Nagini is just a typical snake, NOT. Nagini is a Maledictus, which is an individual who is just a carrier of a blood curse. This curse led her to permanently turn into a beast forever. I think the thought of Nagini being Voldemort’s snake is horrifying enough. No more explanations
100 points for Gryffindor – Neville SLAYED.
- Dementors from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
“Dementors are among the foulest creatures that walk this earth. They infest the darkest, filthiest places, they glory in decay and despair, they drain peace, hope, and happiness out of the air around them… Get too near a Dementor and every good feeling, every happy memory will be sucked out of you. If it can, the Dementor will feed on you long enough to reduce you to something like itself… soulless and evil. You will be left with nothing but the worst experiences of your life.“—Remus Lupin’s description of Dementors
I will forever HATE the Dementors for ALMOST killing Sirius Black.
I know Dementors are purely intended for guarding the prisoners from Azkban due to their gloomy personalities, they really suit there ONLY.
That moment when you’re life already sucks and you walked up into a Dementor, as if it will make any difference. I don’t need it. No thanks.
That’s it! Post down your insights for today’s blogpost in the comment section!
See you on the next blogpost~
