year of the monster

 What could the Loch Ness monster be?

This is a question that plagues the mind of many monster and cryptozoology enthusiasts. For years people have speculated and wondered what the possible creature living in the loch could be. Lets take a look at some of the caniudates. 

A lake sturgeon

  • A popular guess is a lake sturgeon. These fish are native to the lake and can grow up to 8 feet long. This fish also matches the description of hard crocodile-like plates on the back, which is a common theme in Nessie sightings. 

Surfacing Tree

  • When trees become water logged and sinks to the bottom of the loch they can stay down at the bottom for years. When they resurface they release bubbles and then float to the top giving off the illusion of a creature coming up for air.

Eel

  • There have been eels known towash up on the shores of the loch and these are large enough animals(some growing up to 10 feet) to match the description of a large unknown creature swimming in the lake. 

Swimming Elephants

  • Back when circuses traveled through england circus owners would allow their elephants to swim in the loch. Elephants swim with their trunks sticking out of the water. This makes the classic swan neck shape that is common throughout nessie sightings in the water. 

A plesiosaur

  • One of the more fun ideas about Nessie is that she is a surviving plesiosaur from the triassic era. Though if Nessie was a plesiosaur she wouldn’t be able to move her neck in the swan like fashion as plesiosaurs necks were unable to move like that. 

An unknown species

  • The last option for Nessie is she could be an undiscovered species that has eluded people for eons. A species that has humps, crocodile like plates, a swan like neck, and can survive in the cold waters of the loch. 

So what is Nessie? 

She could be any of those things until we know exactly what she is or isn’t and I think that’s the fun of the Loch Nes Monster. It can be whatever you want to be and no one can tell you otherwise.

A/N: Here’s part 2 :D


The one thing (Y/N) did not enjoy about being a demon was that she didn’t have the luxury of sleep, but other than that, it was pretty damn awesome. Of course, that was the demon speaking inside of her. The human part was almost completely demolished. The Winchesters and Castiel left hours ago and she just stared at the dungeon door with a glare in her black eyes. She loved fucking with them, especially Dean. She loved the way he got riled up. She didn’t even have to say anything provocative, it was just her new personality that wasn’t familiar to him. He was used to a kind girl who would steal kisses during the night or the girl who would make him a pie just to cheer him up after bad hunts. Now, she was a shell of the woman she used to be. The dungeon door clicked and opened to reveal all three of the boys. (Y/N) smiled at them.

MARY SAYS STUFF ABOUT :

Little Monsters by Kara Thomas

Goodreads rating: 4.12

Oh. My. Gosh. It took me a while to process life again after finishing this book, because everything is a lie, I cannot trust any person ever again and nothing has meaning anymore. Yes, it was that good. If there’s something that I love, it’s books that completely screw up my perception of reality and keep me literally at the edge of my seat. Little Monsters did just that. I already kind of knew I would love it, because I read Kara’s The Darkest Corners last year and absolutely adored it. Little Monsters delivers another well written, page turning tale and I was hooked from page one.

From Goodreads:

Kacey is the new girl in Broken Falls. When she moved in with her father, she stepped into a brand-new life. A life with a stepbrother, a stepmother, and strangest of all, an adoring younger half sister.

Kacey’s new life is eerily charming compared with the wild highs and lows of the old one she lived with her volatile mother. And everyone is so nice in Broken Falls—she’s even been welcomed into a tight new circle of friends. Bailey and Jade invite her to do everything with them.

Which is why it’s so odd when they start acting distant. And when they don’t invite her to the biggest party of the year, it doesn’t exactly feel like an accident.

But Kacey will never be able to ask, because Bailey never makes it home from that party. Suddenly, Broken Falls doesn’t seem so welcoming after all—especially once everyone starts looking to the new girl for answers.”

I’m smitten with books that keep me guessing. The more complicated the mystery, the more invested I am in the plot, the characters and especially the ending. I always try to guess the twist. It’s part of why I love murder-mystery books so much. It’s like I’m transported into the story, alongside the main character, trying to figure out what the hell is going on. Bonus points if the story has an unreliable narrator. Taking this into account, it was a given that I would have so much fun reading this book. There was a constant air of mystery surrounding everything, which helped me immerse in the book world.  

I loved LOVED the writing! Kara has this ability to make everything sound so poetic, despite the subject matter. I mean, she could probably make a grocery list sound like the next modern mystery. And the way she crafted the whole story is impressive, because she managed to hide everything in plain sight. I had NO clue what the hell was going on! I had to stop several times, with a big “WHAT EVEN” on my face. And everything is unraveled so artfully and, most of all, it makes sense. Once I got to the end, I wanted to slap myself, because “oh my gOD IT WAS THERE WHY DIDN’T I SEE IT”.

The characters were very well fleshed out, and it was fascinating to see how they evolved and to slowly see their motivations take shape. And as a reader, you tended to get sucked into their mind and share their suspicions of other characters. Which made the whole reading experience all the more confusing, yet exciting! I also like books that are centered on friendships and that explore the mindset and relationships of people in close knit groups, and Kacey, Bailey and Jade’s friendship gave me just that. It was fascinating to read about their relationship, but also quite unsettling, because Kara’s characters aren’t morally black or white, they’re shades of grey. You can agree with some of their decisions, and condemn others. Ultimately, they’re people. A little effed up (okay, a little more), but people nonetheless.

Little Monsters will surprise you. It’s a fairly short book, but with a lot of punch-you-in-your-guts action. It honestly left me so conflicted and dumbfounded, which is 100% a good thing. It’s a lesson that people can surprise you, in both a good way and a very, very bad one. That you might never truly know the person next to you. And that appearances can be incredibly deceiving. If you love books that keep you on your edge, this is a must read for you.

Favourite quotes:

“Maybe we were meant to find each other today. Maybe we’re the Not Okay Girls, and we’re supposed to save each other.”

“[…] all the ghost stories got it wrong: evil isn’t a spirit or a monster or a ghost. It lives inside regular people, and it doesn’t know the difference between night and day.”

“[…] that’s the truly incon­venient thing about having a family: even when you don’t owe them anything, you feel like you owe them fucking everything.”

★★★★★

To everyone who got this far, thank you for reading and have a wonderful day! Also, feel free to share your thoughts, comment or tell me anything :)

( This ask blog is for my Gaster (Tsunderester ). Much of this is from Deja Vu, but you don’t have to be familiar with it to ask him questions. He is still the Gaster we all know and love. Grillby can answer questions too, but remember, this is Gaster’s ask blog. ) - LovelyKitchenSink

It is 16 years after the monsters’ freedom. Frisk is attending their first year of college. Toriel teaches elementary school students. Asgore is a manager at a grocery store. And the rest of the monsters have settled into domestic life as well. Gaster and Grillby have settled in together for the most part. Life on the surface is still strange to Gaster. The effects of the void still bother him. Adjusting will take time. Grillby has thoughtfully signed Gaster up for a pen pal service to help him make new friends and learn to like humans. What questions will the humans have for him?

What are your SI's?

Well, mine are Overwatch, psychology, and true crime (actual true crime, learning about the lives and makings of serial killers, not the 16 year old white girls who want to have sex with the monsters who committed the columbine massacre)

Everything was dark. The pain had subsided, but she could still feel it pounding. However, the urge to kill did not subside. It grew. She needed sink a knife into someone’s skin, preferably one of the Winchesters. She couldn’t help, but feel a little bit of anxiety about not finishing her job in Wisconsin. She made a deal with Crowley for an exchange in shelter, but she didn’t fulfill her end of the bargain. She didn’t kill anyone. She couldn’t. The human part of her was sticking around, but not for much longer. The longer she sat doing nothing, the more impulse she had. She didn’t get it. The first few weeks she was a demon, she was killing left and right, leaving a trail of blood behind her, but now, she had time to let it sink in. Compassion, all that mushy stuff the new her hated was creeping up inside of her. Now, she was stuck in the worst possible situation. She was stuck with the Winchesters and they weren’t going to let her go anytime soon. She looked everywhere, trying to find a way to get out, but it was impossible. She had a devil’s trap surrounding her along with the magic handcuffs and chains. She heard a door open from outside of the dungeon and she put her head towards the ground, making herself look vulnerable. The dungeon doors opened and the brightening prison lights came on. The gang was all present. She picked her head up and blinked, adjusting to the brightness of the room. Sam went back over to his injection needles while Dean stood in front of her, staring down like usual. Cas on the other hand was in the corner of the dungeon with an angel blade in his hand.
