Three ice creatures are auditioning to represent the letter I in the X Factor competition.
I asked each creature a few questions. What do you excel at? Why should you rule the letter I? Where can I find you?
The first, the icky thing in the ice in The Thing. Lots of I's there. It's answers: I excel at being gross and icky. I will scare the crap out of you. You can find me in the 1982 version of The Thing. I will make you scream and give you nightmares. [I can't argue with that.]
The second contestant is called an Im. It's answers: I have lots of secrets and I can help Backworlders defeat the Quassers - cloud-like genocidal murderous aliens. You can find me and my kind in Worlds on Edge, Backworlds Book 5. I will make you feel like you're on drugs sometimes, but I'm not horrid - except for the artist's rendition of me.
The third contestant is Snow Beast. It's answers: I excel at killing. I run around growling, slobbering, and eating people. You can find me in the movie Snow Beast. I'm the star, because I am a star.
Our illustrious judge's comments:
Icky thing from The Thing, yo. I think I peed myself a little. Mmm hmm, wild audition yo.
Im... yo, you strange. I like that and that awful drawing of you looks like a hairy turd. Yo, I'm laughing and that's good.
Snow beast. Mmm hmm, yo. I'm not sure about you, but thanks for entering the contest.
Yo, audience peeps. You like have big sway. Your votes will decide who goes on in the X Factor contest.
So which creature should represent the letter I?
The A to Z Blogging Challenge is underway!
Here at Untethered Realms, we're taking on the Challenge as a group. Each day, one of us will be sharing with you a fantastical creature that may be from one of our books, a favorite movie, or something we just came up with as entertainment.
I is for Ims and ice creatures.
