This may be a little odd, but i figured it may lead to some interesting conversations about mythology and whatnot :D

okay! so if you could be any mythiological or magical creature which would it be? why? and what is it?

obiviously if you choose something generic like a dragon, everybody knows what that is O__e so it'd be moot to explain. but if you wanted to explain what a dragon was that would be awesome too :D


ALPHA GOES FIRST DDD:<



i would be a phoenix, i chose this creature because it is a solitary animal and can never die. it is reborn again and again through out time and retains all of the knowledge if obtained in it's past life. The phoenix is also a healing animal.

the Phoenix is: an immortal bird which resembles a cross between an eagle and a stork, but according the egyptians it can change into a human being. the phoenix's cry can wake the dead and it's tears can heal any wound. the phoenix is elementally linked with fire as when it reaches the end of it's life it burns up and arises from the ashes of it's prior being.


including images is very okay too :D i would but i am kinda image-impaired >_<

oh and!! if someone has extra information about a different mythical creature they should post it :D

A gryphon. The combination of an eagle and a lion. It symbolizes boldness and courageous. WHy? because it is a beautiful creature (look below) and is badass

A kitsune commonly known as fox spirits. The more tails a kitsune has—they may have as many as nine—the older, wiser, and more powerful it is.

Black Tortoise

And Here's some background on it
The Black Tortoise is one of the Four Symbols of the Chinese constellations. It is sometimes called the Black Warrior of the North (北方玄武, Běi Fāng Xuán Wǔ), and is known as Genbu in Japan, Hyeonmu in Korea and Huyền Vũ in Vietnam. It represents the north and the winter season. Although its name in Chinese, Xuánwǔ, is often translated as Black Tortoise in English, it is usually depicted as both a tortoise and a snake, specifically with the snake coiling around the tortoise.

......................*Freudian association you got the e and the u the wrong way round XP

and now that ive looked up what it means and only read the first sentence cuz i cbf the rest, interesting is all i can say

now that i've read more this just sounds needy and sad, "non-judgemental curiosity and acceptance"

"In free association, psychoanalytic patients are invited to relate whatever comes into their minds during the analytic session, and not to censor their thoughts. This technique is intended to help the patient learn more about what he or she thinks and feels, in an atmosphere of non-judgmental curiosity and acceptance."

But still thats all i read so there might be more to it, but still cbf going more into it
