Hello, Anon!

We have been working on the upcoming thread for the past couple of weeks. Real life is trying its best to interfere, but we have most everything done except editing. My apologies for the lack of activity on this blog lately; finals week at the university is coming up, and I am struggling to remain sane. I can’t promise you a specific post-by date, but I can assure you that once we do start posting, it is going to be like a tidal wave. A tidal wave of threads. Really, really awesome threads. So hang in there, dear readers! If any of you have finals week coming up too, I send you best wishes and love. May we suffer together.

<3,

GM

I am. So excited.

I keep clicking back onto the comm thinking: should I reread everything NOW? Or should I wait?

Reread everything now and then when the threads go up reread everything AGAIN. Trust me this is the best way to do it. You don’t need sleep. Nobody needs sleep. Only weaklings need sleep. I haven’t slept for the past forty-eight hours and do you see me being a weakling? I thought not.

So trust me you totally have to do the thing that I told you to do at the beginning of this thing that I started talking to you about.

So sneaky I just woke up and checked the blog and screamed out loud.

NOW I HAVE A CONUNDRUM.

Just you wait, my friend. :D

(Or rather, get reading now. There’s a new one-shot up, and with luck and hard work we may be posting another thread tonight!)

So I guess it’s a seriously awesome thing that I have nearly finished my reread just before bed? <3 I love waking up to nice things, because the timing usually works that way!

Seriously, I hate this piece of sh*t paper SO MUCH.

Edit: So, being the Tumblr noob I am, I thought putting in the image using its URL would mean it was linked to that URL, thus crediting the original maker/where I found it. However, it hasn’t done that, so here’s a link to the blog by Tom Pride where I found this gem.

Let’s not forget the article they wrote about Lucy Meadows that caused her to commit suicide.

what if the new animal species we discover each year are actually being dropped off by aliens? like they have an over abundance of yeti crabs or something and so they brought some to earth because they knew we’d get a kick out of this

better a witty fool than a foolish wit

justplainsomething asked: Do you know of any ancient cultures outside of Roman and Greek (and not European obviously) with myths about humans becoming immortal? I'm trying to do character building for a story about immortals in the modern world and I want to have as much diversity as possible (aka NOT just Romans and Greeks), but I haven't found much yet and also don't want to bend other cultures' myths to fit my ideas, either. Anyway, I think your blog is great and thanks for the help.

Immortality and the origin of death is one of the most popular topics of stories from around the world, actually. Often immortality is or can be conferred on average humans by eating or drinking a rare and special kind of food or beverage.

In the Islamic world you have the four immortals, including Khidir, the Green Man, who drank from the water of life and became immortal. Khidir’s tale shares some factors in common with the story of The Wandering Jew. You can read more about him and the other immortals here.

In China you have the Covert Eight Immortals:

whose power can be transferred to tools an used to destroy evil ro bestow life; as well as the Eight Immortal Scholars of Huainan, or the Eight Gentlemen, who aren’t deified or made supernatural in any way, as their “immortality” is a metaphor but I think that’s a fun play for fiction. As well as Emperor Qin Shi Huang, who famously spent much of his life searching for an elixir of immortality.

There are a fair amount of Native American tales that deal with this topic, too. The Boy Who Would Be Immortal is a Hočąk story, with analogues in Macmac, Menominee, and Potawotami, with their theme of fasting. If you plan to include immortals that blend with supernatural tales, Wendigo are certainly immortal (humans become Wendigo by breaking taboos or committing terrible crimes), as are Skin Walkers in Navajo legend.

In Vietnam, Hang Nga and Hau Nghe are made immortal by eating a special type of grass. Separate from this, you have the Vietnamese Four Immortals: the giant boy Thánh Gióng, mountain god Tản Viên Sơn Thánh,Chử Đồng Tử the marsh boy, and the princess Liễu Hạnh.

In both Hindu and Buddhist tales, the elixir of immortality is guarded jealously by the gods and Garuda, the mythological bird person, plays a very important role in these kind of stories in Southeast Asia.

Another linking theme is the Tree of Life, which many cultures have in common, from Yggdrasil to the Mesoamerican World Tree.

There’s a Yoruban tale about Oba Koso or Shango, who was forced to commit suicide by political intrigue but did not hang; The demigod Maui has many stories his quests involving immortality for himself and others in Tonga, New Zealand, Samoa, and many other Pacific Islands.

Also keep in mind, even if you’re going to allow Greek or Roman immortals to dominate your story-not all Greek or Roman immortals were white people. A notable exception is Memnon, an African (Ethiopian and/or Sudanese) king, who was killed by Achilles and mourned so deeply by Eos, his mother, that Zeus was moved to grant him immortality.

I highly encourage anyone else to add their favorite stories about immortality to this post!!!

I’m not sure if someone’s already mentioned it, but there’s a Japanese folktale about how if you eat the flesh of a mermaid (person-fish, 人魚), you’ll become immortal.

There’s a brief passage about the original story here (which started showing up in the Edo/Tokugawa period [~1600-1868]) and a general entry from the Obakemono Project which now, sadly, can only be accessed by the WayBack Machine, but sports a very nice citations list.

Yeah! The Mermaid Saga by Rumiko Takahashi got all up into that, created a very popular manga and then there was a very short anime that was only partially shown on tv because it was too disturbing.

Hello, Anon!

We have been working on the upcoming thread for the past couple of weeks. Real life is trying its best to interfere, but we have most everything done except editing. My apologies for the lack of activity on this blog lately; finals week at the university is coming up, and I am struggling to remain sane.
