Today in horror / sci-fi movie history: on May 7, 2016 The Thing was screened at the Future Film Festival in Italy.
Here's some R.J. MacReady art to celebrate!
I’m really sick of shows like Rick and Morty and The Boys and Invincible where unspeakable horrors are committed on screen for spectacle; oh sure, we’re supposed to be shocked and appalled, that’s the point, but I don’t find it entertaining to watch a street full of civilians be atomized or to see people ground to dog meat in front of their children. It’s gore for the sake of gore. I don’t like seeing people’s lives ruined, I don’t like seeing mutilations and unidentifiable remains, I don’t like seeing people still conscious as their limbs or lower halves are torn off, it sickens me.
I've recently found out about omori-
I don't know what the fuck I've stumbled upon on and what is going on yet but you bet ya horses I'm all for it
I'll post my curiouscat stuff here too! If u wanna ask me a question/request ab my ocs u can do that thru my cc (linked a bunch on my twit @ demonpearlz), or u can just send me an ask!! Either is fine ♡
I think the crooked man is the game I relate to the most from the strange men series

Mind flayers, otherwise known as illithids, are said to be a hive-minded species. Although each illithid technically has its own individuality, they are are under the influence of the elder brain. This elder brain is a giant mass of neural matter and an ego to match. It believes that illithids are the superior consciousnesses in the multiverse and that it is the peak of illithid-kind. Most illitihids would agree, which is why they implant tadpoles birthed from the elder brain into a select few of their victims. Rather than eat their brains (as they are wont to do), they allow the victim to be slowly transformed into an illithid themselves. After less than a year of incubation, a new illithid emerges where once a normal humanoid was imprisoned.
However, not all victims of the mind flayers is successfully transformed by this so-called “ceremorphosis”. Some escape before the transformation is complete and never become a part of the elder brain’s hive mind. They flee the mind flayer colony and return to their previous communities, or join a new one if the original’s population has already been harvested for their brains by the illithids. For a time, the escapee might believe they have dodged a fate worse than death and live in peace. Truly, there is nothing more horrifying than becoming an illithid. You do not die, but instead are changed forever into an alien monstrosity without empathy or compassion to those of the material world.
However, once the tadpole is implanted, it is too late for a normal life. Over the coming months or years, the escapee realises that the tadpole lingers on inside their skull and is changing them from the inside out. The alien stowaway is much weaker now than it was, as it is not being nourished by the colony’s ambient psionic radiation, but it still has the capacity to warp the victim beyond recognition. Such individuals retain their memories and personalities, but also gain some of the powers and visual signifiers of mind flayers. Some look like slightly unusual members of their original race while others could pass as mind flayers themselves.
Regardless of their looks, real illithids will likely recognise a rogue in an instant and seek to destroy it. Among illithids there is a legend that a tadpole-implanted humanoid will one day destroy the remnants of the illithid empire; however unlikely that story might be, it is logically not worth the risk of allowing any half-formed kin to live.
Symbiotic Psion Traits
Type: Humanoid and Aberration
Size: Medium or Small (your choice when you gain this lineage)
Speed: 30 feet
Age: Your ageing slows down on your humanoid traits, but that becomes irrelevant once the tadpole takes over. You live to be roughly 160 years old before expiring.
Superior Darkvision. You can see in dim light within 120 feet of you as if it were bright light, and in darkness as if it were dim light. You can't discern colour in darkness, only shades of grey.
Magic Resistance. You have advantage on saving throws against spells.
Ceremorphosis. You have a suite of psionic spells you can cast using your evolved brain, but the more the tadpole integrates with your brain the harder it gets to hide your burgeoning illithid nature.
You can use an action to cast mind sliver. At 3rd level, you gain the ability to cast thunderwave and gain one symptom of ceremorphosis. At 5th level, you gain the ability to cast detect thoughts and gain another symptom of ceremorphosis. At 8th level, you gain the ability to cast levitate and gain another symptom of ceremorphosis. Intelligence is your spellcasting ability for these spells.
When you cast a spell that is 1st-level or higher using this trait, you cannot cast it again in this way until you finish a short or long rest. Furthermore, any spell you cast using this trait that deals damage deals psychic damage instead of its original damage type.
If you roll the same symptom of ceremorphosis twice, the symptom becomes more extreme and difficult to hide.
Sunlight Sensitivity. You have disadvantage on attack rolls and Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on sight when you, the target of the attack, or whatever you are trying to perceive is in direct sunlight.
1d6 Symptoms of Ceremorphosis
Your skin is slimy and pale, and smells salty like brinewater.
Your eyes are empty like pools of water, with fragments of your iris floating across the surface.
Your limbs are long and your digits are fused into a set of inhuman grabbers.
You become uncommonly tall for someone of your race and far more gangly.
Your mouth and lips become a maw of tentacle-like protuberances.
Your favourite food is brains.

Merry Christmas! Santa rushes along the night sky to deliver presents to happy kids who don’t cry!
Mermay - Day 7 - Blue Crab
Last one!! This one was the hardest to do. I never liked the original sketch I did for it, so I was not looking forward to this one.
Throughout the whole thing I kept reaching a point where I liked it, but not enough, so I would continue trying new things and adding onto it.
How it ended up looks really cool to me and I'm pretty happy with it, but the previous version looks more like a blue crab to me, so I put it under the cut.

thoughts on the stranger & the spiral & the corruption
thinking thinking... thinking about what would have been if they never opened that rift between worlds. If Lucifer and his demons were the main antagonists for s13, and for once, they get downright nasty. If Mary, Sam and Dean are searching for Kelly so they can kill Jack and the angels and demons are searching for him for their own reasons and Cas just...delivers Jack alone, burns Kelly's body by that lake, slings this baby (because yes baby!Jack truthing, always) across his shoulder and just keeps running from town to town to town, holing up in cheap motels, painting blood sigils on every wall that surrounds them, using every bit of his grace to protect and to nurture this child — his child.
it feels like theres a parasite in my brain
