Which Literary Creep Is Your Alter Ego?
Literature is filled with perturbing characters. Which one is your alter ego?
Do you ever have truly wicked thoughts?
Would you ever betray a friend?
Pick a favorite movie villain from this malevolent group?
What's your weapon of choice?
How good a judge of character are you?
What are you most afraid of?
And finally, finish this sentence: "The only thing better than love is ____."
Your little dark place inside seems sweet and caring, until you realize that it would hold your big, happy outer place captive inside a womb of terror and violence that would make Stephen King himself shudder.
Your worse self has all the manners of a bloodsucking aristocrat. No, that's not a good thing. Skulking in dark alleys, enslaving innocents to do your bidding, and seeking the one thing you desire--blood--at any cost. We'd hate to meet you in a dark alley.
Your life may feel like a "Crucible" sometimes, but that doesn't give you license to let your inner self run amok in the world, passing out false accusations like Halloween candy and getting innocents burned at the stake.
South of "East of Eden" is where your alter ego belongs--what with using sexuality to lure and destroy people. And then the whole killing your parents thing. It's a good thing your alter-ego is only a tiny aspect of you.
Your inner avatar's lust for power and money knows no boundaries. Life, limb, and the pursuit of happiness are irrelevant, unless happiness pertains to its power trip or its fiscal gains. Stow that unbridled greed, soldier.
With a subconscious creep inside you like Mr. Dark, you'll never need enemies. You're already the creepy ringmaster of the supernatural circus of terror in your head, comfortably stealing souls to feed your life force--subconsciously, anyway....we hope.
