X Factor

Welcome to X Factor! [wild applause]

Today you get to pick the creature with the most X. That's right. Who do you think has what it takes to be the creature of all creatures?

For their auditions, each contestant must answer the following questions: What do you excel at? Where can you be found? And why do you deserve to be the creature of all creatures?

And our first contestant is:

Jezebel, a demon from the Underworld. [wild applause]


What do you excel at?
First of all, thank you for inviting me here. It would have been disappointing if you'd forgotten me...and probably painful for you. So, on with it.

When I'm not whispering in River Fairchild's ear as her number one Muse – and really, I'm far superior to that Mr. Fluffy guy – I mix a mean punch. Laugh if you dare, but my punch has been known to turn people into dragons or trap the unsuspecting in alternate realities. Ask around. My reputation is legend.

Where can you be found?
Every Tuesday morning you can find me here, at the Demon Market in the Underworld. Best place to find those elusive ingredients for my specialty punches.

And why do you deserve to be the creature of all creatures?
Why not? Someone has to be the best. And if you don't vote for me, you may find yourself dehydrated into a sandworm.


Our second contestant is:

Baine, a Time Demon on the planet Revelation. [wild applause and wolf-whistles]

What do you excel at?
Death. Misery. Keeping to myself. The usual demon stuff, though I do like to keep The Author mighty busy. She thinks the most demanding demon she's ever created is a vampire by the name of Victory Dead. Wrong. He's not the only one with forever to harass and badger her. Ya'll find I'm good at harassment. Guess I ought to eat a lawyer now. Anyone want to donate their time span for a good cause?

Where can you be found?
At Baine's Land, but don't think you can come visit me. I don't take kindly to visitors, unless I need to renew my time span. If you have any enemies or horses, mortal or immortal, send um my way. Ya'll be doing me a favour.

And why do you deserve to be the creature of all creatures?
Ya'll want to keep your life span? Easy. Vote for me. Then I won't come in the harsh glare of the midday Sunslight and rob you of the pitiful amount of time you have left.

Our third contestant is:

Tawa, a guardian to one of the Fearless and stuffed hippo. [wild applause & sweet coos]

What do you excel at?
Training young girls and guiding women as they become one of the Fearless, warriors who fight monsters born of children's imaginations. I'm very wise, not that anyone usually listens to me.

Where can you be found?
In Abby's backpack, most of the time. Sometimes, when she gets careless, I'm tortured with a ride in the washing machine.

And why do you deserve to be the creature of all creatures?
A creature of all creatures? Really, I think you can come up with a better title than that. Besides, look who I'm up against: demons. I can tell you how to slay one. Not that I'm suggesting you do anything... Yes, well, good guys have the most X. A vote for me is a vote for the good guys.

Our fourth contestant:

The winner from the Q auditions: Q from Star Trek: The Next Generation



His answers: Nothing compares to me. I am awesome. I excel at absolutely everything. Enough said.


Our fifth contestant:

The winner from the I, ice creatures auditions: Icky thing in the ice in the 1982 version of The Thing.



It's answers: I excel at being gross and icky. I will scare the crap out of you. You can find me in the 1982 version of The Thing. I will make you scream and give you nightmares. [I can't argue with that.]



Our illustrious judge's comments:

Rex says:

Mizz Jezebel you have some style. Mmm hmmm, yeah. Yo like mad style. Is Mr. Fluffy Guy in this competition? Obviously you eclipsed him.

Victory, mmm hmm, yeah, it's my job to eat the lawyers. You trying to steal my part, yo? Yo evil comes through loud and clear.

Yo, Tawa! Whoa, man! I need you. You should join my team.

Q, your arrogance is true inspiration to me. Yo. No, I'm not crying.

Icky thing in the ice from The Thing, you still nasty, yo. I need darker sunglasses.










The A to Z Blogging Challenge is underway!
If you haven't heard of it, check out the A to Z blog and join in the fun.
Here at Untethered Realms, we're taking on the Challenge as a group. Each day, one of us will be sharing with you a fantastical creature that may be from one of our books, a favorite movie, or something we just came up with as entertainment.

X is for X Factor.

  1. Jezebel hands/paws/tentacles down.
    She is eXtremely devious, dangerous and her punch is eXtraordinary (and addictive).
    Some worthy competion, but Jezebel has my vote. Always.

  2. What a fun post! I'm totally voting for Tawa... (You just can't say no to a stuffed hippo, after all!)

  3. I know I'm prejudiced but I'd have to vote for Jezebel anyway. I mean, she's in my head day and night...what else can I do? Besides, she can trip out all the baddies with one swig of punch - and all the good ones too. Nobody's safe around her. She could even spike whatever Baine sucks up. And Tawa? Add a few ingredients to the washing machine next time he goes swimming and he'll come out with a whole new personality. Know what I mean?

  4. Now that's really tough. Tawa is cool, but Q rocks. However, I will vote for Jezebel, as she might be the key to my winning Lord of the Clones tomorrow.

  5. What a competition! There's not much Tawa can do herself if someone decides to eat her or brew her into tea, but she has my vote. One for the good guys!

  6. I will give a vote to Baine. Yo.

  7. Q all the way! Loved his character.

  8. I will cast my vote for Tawa! After all, she could probably figure out how to destroy the others or have her Fearless do it for her.

  9. Oh my, can we vote for all of them? They all sound so dangerous. But honestly, Tawa is the cutest--so I'm voting for Tawa *runs away fast*

    ReplyDelete
  10. I saw Tawa because, how CUTE is he!

  11. I want to vote for Tawa but I'm kind of scared to tick Jezebel off.

    ReplyDelete
  12. My vote goes to the Ice creature, because he is the grossest and most scary. Though I do love the idea of bartering for demons at a demon market!

  13. Ya'll all be in trouble for not voting for my Time Demon. Dead trouble...except for Mary!

  14. Talks big, Baine. I'll spike your drink and fix ya good.
    Jezebel

  15. Once I'm through the rinse cycle, you're all in trouble!

  16. Except those wise folks who voted for me. To them, I give hippo hugs!

  17. I have to vote for Q. Because, Q.

  18. Nobody who ever tasted Jezebel's punch, and survived, would ever vote for any of those other phonies in this election.

  19. *snicker* Ron is a true convert. :)

  20. Oh I like Baine and even though he is evil and all that business I think he could be swayed to the good side on occasion. If not I will just cozy up to Q because he's fun and we can travel wherever we want to go and he can't die. he can be bored but that's about it so I am caught between the 2...oh I'll vote for Q-he has some class even if he is a bit of an ass:)

  21. Love your original X post! I'm voting for the good guy.

  22. I'm with the good guy, so Tawa's my pick. Boring, I know, but I like being safe.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Your potions are wasted on me, Jezebel. I am a Time Demon impervious to all toxic brews.

    The good side? Ya'll be lucky, Birgit!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm going with TAWA. T Rex pales in comparison.
