September finally drew to a close. A steady rain was falling on the forest, and a cold fog was drifting in from the ocean.
Kes was in the laundry room, washing the linen. Suddenly, she paused and listened hard to the silence. Something about the room didn't seem right. She got the nagging impression that eyes watched her from behind. Yet, whenever she turned to look, she saw only bare walls. Worse of all, she thought she heard rustling and shuffling near the entrance. But when she strode to the doorway and looked out, there was nothing there. Everything was quiet.
"Rats," she said irritably. "I thought I ran them all out."
"No, not rats," someone said in a faint, windy wh

Excerpt from Kes Allyntahl's Diary, former resident of Narrak Island.
For the last twenty-one years, I had lived with my cat in a cabin near a dark forest.
I liked the peace and remoteness of Narrak. This was in great contrast to Orrim, the main island where I grew up. It hardly had any peace and quiet. Nosey relatives and irksome acquaintances almost always surrounded me; not only that, Gerdin had to do things one way and according to signs and silly rules in books.
So much was my hatred of my past life that I went as far as to rename myself and give away most of my worldly possessions.
I was happy and contented with my secluded, simple life, until that fateful day in

Doorway to Darkness:The First Story of Kes Allyntahl
"They are everywhere, those creatures."
--August Derleth, The House on Curwen Street
"It was over his shoulder, and indistinctly, that he first a face: a little evil wedged-shaped face, looking at him from a hole. When he turned around and confronted it, the thing had vanished."
--Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows
On Narrak Island, which was the most northernmost of the Orrim Archipelago, lived a Gerdin. She was a small, very slender woman, about four feet in height, with a delicate brown face, golden feline eyes, and long silvery-white hair.

What is a monster?
"Every being, real or imaginary, human or non-human that exceeds the norm or the ordinary; something extraordinary, be it horrible or wonderful in a physical or moral manner."
With this we want to express that a monster doesn't have to be horrible. It's the wonderful thought that something anomalous or something different, sometimes even scary in appearance, can be beautiful and familiar. Something on which you can project your fears, your desires, your ideals, making the impossible something real with a little imagination.
Thus is born Teratophilia, from the greek teratos, meaning monster, and philia, meaning love and friendship. So let there be love for our monster friends and weirdos alike.
Finn: Is this really my life?
Is this how my story ends?
Bein' in this body,
Seems like a battle that I cannot win.
Maybe I should lay my head down slow,
And sleep until it's all over,
Is this the end,
of the hero boy named Finn?
HECK NO! Darn it, no! This isn't how I go!
I'm gonna kill it!
I'm gonna kick life's butt,
and win it, to win it.
I'm gonna take life's name,
and spit on it! And kick it!
Life can just go eat it,
cause' this is a man's game!
Finn: Get up, Gork!
Gork: Huh? Why?
Finn: I'm not gonna let you lie here,
and waste away,
you better get up, Gork or I'll kick you up,
today's the day!
Gork: Whoa. Okay man, just be cool.
Finn: And I'm not gonna be cool!
Cause I'm pipin' hot!
Get up, Trudy, get up, Kim.
I'm not gonna let you rot!
Jake: Hey, Finn.
Finn: Ja-a-a-ke, stop tellin' me to enjoy,
bein' a foot, and get out of that trash!
Jake: Heh heh. I can't take you seriously when you're singing, man.
Finn: Get up! All of you make me sick!
I'll fix you with my kicks!
Gonna reconstruct your self worth,
brick by emotional brick.
The hero boy named Finn, Finn the human, Adventure Time (Freak City).
