Your Weekend Creature Comforts: The Slitheen

Happy weekend fellow nerds, I just can’t get enough of Doctor Who lately and am bringing you another superb alien from this series today. A well timed fart is always highly amusing, and so the alien species of Slitheen should have you rolling over with laughter as long as you can ignore the fact that they want to destroy the planet Earth. Continue onward my TARDIS loving followers for some more details on this diabolical monster.

Your Weekend Creature Comforts: Jagrafess

Welcome to another weekend full of your favorite creatures. Obviously I could talk about aliens for months, since there are so many different types with limitless possibilities. And thank goodness I have finally been exposed to the wonders of Doctor Who. I am grateful to this show for many reasons, and one of those reasons is the endless alien creatures I can talk with you all about every weekend. Now, I have a lot more to learn about the Who universe since I am only on Series One with Chris Eccleston, but today I want to talk about a gorgeous little creature that I saw on one of my favorite episodes from that season. That episode was known as “The Long Game”.

Your Weekend Creature Comforts: Who Kidnapped Lillith?

Wait a minute….what day is it? If you’re looking at yourself wondering where Lillith is, I’m sorry to tell you that she has been taken hostage, so unfortunately you are going to be stuck with me today. I know what you’re thinking….that I had some kind of hand in getting her kidnapped….which is completely false. I have been tasked with figuring out what has happened to our master of the wild, and I will be doing my absolute best in locating her. We received a ransom note, and all it did was just make the whole thing that much stranger. I have a hunch as to what happened, and the clues seem to fit, but it can’t be…..let me explain.

The sky is open to me, but I guard what is below

My master and captor decides who will go

He has the woman, but your mind is his lust

If his question goes unanswered, her bones will turn to dust

Cross me and you will find my ultimate treasure

Go underneath me and it will be my pleasure

What the hell is that? Obviously , much like myself, I am assuming you all have come to the same sort of conclusion…..ninjas….no? Am I the only one? Alright, alright. What would be the first thing that pops into your head for this….shall we call it a riddle? A riddle indeed. Besides Blaine the Mono and the Riddler, there aren’t that many beings that would be willing to leave or enjoy a good riddle. This was left on the door of the Evil Lair, driven into it with a wood and stone hand axe, much like my future wedding invitations (which if you take my idea I will cut everything out of you and drag it behind my car on the highway.) High alert ran rampant throughout the Lair and Lillith’s wolves would not stop howling. I felt bad for the poor guys. They seemed to have some kind of scent, and they hated it. It was driving them crazy. So I did what I vowed to do, which was finish Lego Marvel before starting the search in earnest. I took my spellbooks, my undead, and the wolves. Let’s do this.

Your Weekend Creature Comforts: The Minotaur

Welcome back you fiendish monster-loving fans, this weekend our creature feature comes as a special request for our buddy Biff. Of course he chose quite a legend for us to go over this weekend: The Minotaur. While some of the Greek mythological beasts we might talk about in this column are more extraneous, this monster is probably well known by those who have no familiarity with mythology in general. This creature has the head of a bull and the body of a man. It is most famously known for wandering the mazes of a great Labyrinth, and typically not something you wanted to come across while navigating said maze. Let’s see what I could dig up on this iconic creature for this week’s post.

Your Weekend Creature Comforts: The Echidna

Welcome to another weekend edition of our Creature Comforts! Now with the title this week you might be wondering if I am writing about a strange marsupial covered in quills from Australia. But actually no, this echidna is just as amazing in its own way, specifically that in Greek mythology this echidna is “The Mother of All Monsters”.myth_to_life__echidna_by_redphoenix621-d6716vt
