  1. “I see no monsters here,” said the Doctor
    of the intent-full dark eyes.

    They had better be warned! One cannot be really sure of the motives! Great story-line Magaly!

    • Motivations are obscure things, aren’t they? Certain people become very adept at masking them… They can be as elusive and as subjective as the definition of monster from one head to another, methinks.

  2. Shelley works just fine, I think–though I occasionally thought I got a sniff of tell-tale heart jolt as well, or maybe the disintegration of M. Valdemar…nonetheless, we find that all is stitched in time, and nearly evil is never, ever evil enough. I loved this, Magaly, the sandy eyes, the line ‘I’m nearly sure you’re mistaken.” Just the best dark sweet draft of monsters I’ve had all day.

  3. “But nearly never accomplished enough” That line is haunting. It makes me wonder what would be enough, or is it all ready too much? The kindness of the doctor in the next to last stanza makes me think that it is kindness that is truly needed to make things “enough”. Thought provoking.

    • I think you’ve described the dance between “enough” and “too much” and “who gets to decide” rather well. And yes, I, too, think that at the end, kindness is the only rescue… some of it, directed within.

  4. Oh yes, the moustachioed profile tricks all hehe… I cheated for the greater good, I have read this over and over, bite sized images stitched together so the morsels make the reanimation of something if not a monster, then what(?) stuff that dreams are made of, deep dark and nightmarish! Put down the taser, and take a bow, bravo Ms Wicked, bravo (and that apple… Delicious) 🙂
