HALLOWEEN by amarys HALLOWEEN by amarys
'Tell me who I am.'
'Halloween,' she said.
I'd been rooting against it, but when the word came, it was almost a relief. I was Halloween. Hell, I thought. A rose by any other name.
'And who is that?'
'You are my Lord Halloween, Prince of the Marshes, King of Kadath, High Sovereign of the Orange and Black.'

From 'Idlewild' by Nick Sagan.

That's cool. I like the character. It would be awesome to have an anime based on Halloween or on the holidays of the year.

Soul Eater manga and anime had a very Halloween type feel about them try those.

Light and dark,shadows and light, curving towards the characters face. He in turn directs your eyes towards a puff of light- butterfly! Very nicely done!

Very nice, very interesting... I love the orange and black, obviously, but the monarch, I mean... that is a nice touch, lol. They come out around Autumn and they're orange and black, so it's perfect.

Thank You. I love this series, particularly Idlewild solely because Hal is still Halloween before his metamorphic transition. He is my favorite character of all time and you portrayed him beautifully.

You Are a person, named after something that is loath or loved. Membered by generations of family and civilizations. You are or may be the reason why there's a bump on the night. Why you're the reason as we worship you. Why thees a thump as become fright.
