Eldritch Works: The Blair Witch - The History and The Horror

Blair Witch Stick Figure by Keikonium

In light of the forthcoming and somewhat anticipated Blair Witch sequel on the 16th September, 2016 - a return to the franchise after some 17 years - I have been musing on both the cultural legacy of the Blair Witch, and the history of the legend itself.

After a time, i have penned a brief account of both, which can be found below - The Blair Witch - The History and The Horror. A combined article which some horror fans and others may find interesting, for either part.

"Time is the last remaining taboo" - Setsuna Meioh


A curious vein, but for those a little taken aback by this perhaps odd journal - and not by the perhaps familiar lady above - then let me afford you some insight. Some years ago, back in 2006, the most distant planet of the solar system, Pluto, was relegated to the status of a "dwarf planet" when then current astronomical discourse sought a reclassification of its stellar profile; indeed, the latest twist in the story of the enigmatic world since its discovery in 1930 by Clyde Tombaugh. 

The distant world, in the intervening years of the 20th century, becoming a fixture of the popular imagination, and particularly popularized by a certain breakthrough manga franchise of the 90's, was subject to a seemingly final discussion when astronomers in 2006 down graded the world to a "dwarf planetoid", and elevated other such minor celestial bodies like "Eris" and "Ceres". The latter two becoming something of a hot topic for the next decade as the new kids on the sol block, it would have seemed that Pluto's story was over and told. Until now, as it would seem that a growing body of new consensus would happily reclassify Pluto as a planet. 

Of course, a principally scientific discourse, it remains that Pluto's loss and then subsequent reclassification as a planet did prompt a very particular response from a certain online community of anime fandom: and indeed, I am speaking of Sailor Moon - which incidentally is undergoing a years long process of renewal, given the new series/reboot starting in the summer of 2014 Well Met by Moonlight? (Part One) Well Met by Moonlight? (Part Two) Well Met by Moonlight? (Part Three). The downgrading of Pluto causing something of a stir - and thankfully some good natured humor too - I imagine that some within the still salient community will be somewhat pleased that Pluto has been restored as am I, and indeed, perhaps justifying the gentle smile of a certain Ms. Meioh - the same Setsuna who's alter-ego is none other than the Guardian of Time herself, Sailor Pluto.

"Pluto! Planet..


Sailor Pluto - SM Crystal Season 3 by xuweisen

"...Power".


Perhaps a small and somewhat tangential stir, I can't deny that it does bring a smile to see Pluto restored to its former status, and indeed more so if it restores the acknowledged history and dignity of such an elegant, enigmatic and indeed intriguing heroine as Setsuna Meioh, and her cosmic, time bending exploits as Sailor Pluto too. 
More so, it does help too that Pluto - second to Mercury - was my favoured senshi of the group, and never failed to fascinate; indeed, all the more so in her latter iteration of Sailor Moon Crystal where Setsuna is more evenly crafted and realized in the living world, as opposed to the more distant, and coldly nebulous, reaches of the Gates of Time. So, in turn, good to have Pluto back as a planet in both the scientific community and the popular imagination too. Then again, despite time travel being a taboo, Setsuna probably already knew of what was to come, prescient as she is...

To run off, given this somewhat timely journal on Pluto and the franchise it most readily pertains to here, it's a curious thing to ponder what a "Sailor Eris" would be like - and perhaps more so, given that there is actually a Sailor Ceres, though that is another story in itself. Perhaps fans or the imaginative may wish to share their thoughts on such a subject, if they would like?

Well, I have made a symbiote-infected superhuman named Aviary (Tzipporah Kaufman). She was infected with a symbiote similar to the one with Menagerie from Superman vs the Elite. The symbiote has bird-like abilities, such as using feathers as darts.

PS, I learned that Tzipporah is Hebrew for “bird,” hence the first name.

Ah, nicely done - and indeed, a compelling adaptation of a concept which mingles nuanced themes with some innovative ones too. And yes, a themed symbiote is fairly new territory, as I recall. Also, it's always good to research and be well read on your subject before embarking on creative pursuits ^^.
