I have three Q creatures auditioning for ultimate creature in the X Factor of creatures.
I asked each creature a few questions. What do you excel at? Why should you rule the letter Q? Where can I find you?
First up, is the Questing Beast from the Arthurian Legends fame. It's a great way to make a start in creaturedom. Arthur is enduring. It's answers: I'm nasty and am born of incest. Violence and chaos are my fortes. I destroyed Arthur's kingdom. I am the creature of all creatures.
Quassers are sentient living ships in The Backworlds Series. They make their first appearance in Book 3, Boomtown Craze, but are whispered about in the first two books. It's answers: I kill and maim and have no mercy. You have no right to know why. I will use and exploit your kind to get what I want. The Backworlds will die. The artist did me poor justice.
Our third contestant for representing the letter Q is, Q from Star Trek: The Next Generation. His answers: Nothing compares to me. I am awesome. I excel at absolutely everything.
Our illustrious judge's comments:
Yo, Questing Beast. Mmm hmm, yeah. Mad respect props. Yo almost as old as me in the beast game. Yo, that's something.
Quasser dude. Well, that image of you isn't so scary. Mmm hmm, yeah. But you nasty, yo. Don't want to know you.
Q, if the vote is for biggest pain in the behind, yo, you win.
Audience peeps, you decide. Your vote will send a beast on in the X Factor competition. Who should represent the letter Q?
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.
Q is for Questing Beast, Quassers, and Q.
