these people are legend

Sade Smols

I always scoffed at the local legend about the tiny people who lived in our town. That’s what the adults talked about when we were growing up - the little helpers who lived in the cracks and crevices of homes who scared away bugs and cleaned up crumbs. I never saw one. No one I knew did. But still, people talked about them as if they were there, like modern fairies.

This morning, I woke up to one sitting on my pillow, deftly cleaning a puddle of drool off my pillowcase.

He seemed as startled as I was.

“It’s okay,” he assured me.

I was surprised how loud and clear his voice was, as he was only four inches tall.

“I’m Sade Smols,” he said. “I’ve been cleaning here for the last six months.”

Glamping Wales in Pop-Up Cabins

The Epic Retreats project is a partnership between Best of Wales, Cambria Tours and George + Tomos Architects and is part funded by the Welsh Government’s Tourism Product Innovation Fund. Epic Retreats is a completely unique hotel offer that will celebrate Wales’s Year of Legends 2017 by allowing people to experience the best landscapes and experiences Wales has to offer while staying in one of eight bespoke cabins, designed specifically for the project.

My advice for people that think their location has few or no cryptids:

- Look into lesser known things. Not all Cryptozoological wonders are well known, the most interesting ones are sometimes not known outside a certain area!

- Look in your local library at old newspaper articles or ask around for local stories of “monsters” and “urban legends”. A lot of times people don’t know the difference between Cryptozoology and Urban Legends and might mix them up.

- Don’t dismiss some cryptids just because they are not interesting. Was there a mystery animal (ex. A hyena was spotted in Cape Cod long ago) in your area that doesn’t belong there? That’s still a cryptid. There are still many questions to be asked about that sighting.

- Can’t find much information on a lesser known creature? Dig dig dig! There’s probably some information out there. Sometimes there isn’t. When I found out about the aforementioned hyena, there was only a single poem from the time that seemingly was mocking the event.

- Washed up dead “thing” where you live? That’s still a cryptid - it’s called a Globster!

Using these things, I went from knowing about 1 Cryptozoological mystery in Massachusetts to knowing about 15.

So…Roman’s anger is my absolute FAVORITE characterization that WWE has given him. Like, he’s been so distorted by his desire to make sure that his family never goes hungry again (he was poor and living off food stamps before his wrestling career), that he doesn’t realize his choices aren’t just. And are actually pretty damn evil. From hurting both of his bosses and threatening Hunter’s wife, to retiring a legend that people held dear. In Roman’s mind, he’s doing the right thing. But to an outsider, he’s far from a hero. 

And it’s so. damn. good.

Spoiler alert: he did, in fact, die.

The writing for Breath of the Wild is kinda… eh, so I’m just gonna pretend Link is a reckless idiot.

Before you comment/tag this comic with Fi/Skyward Sword hate consider this: don’t.

There’s always someone who secretly believes in myths and legends; or at least parts of them. Those are the people who will look beyond the obvious and see things in this world that are truly wonderful… But they won’t say anything, even if they do. Because the rest of us who view the world as logical and scientific wouldn’t see the truth if it was posted up on a billboard.
