The Evil Gelly


The druid priest held up his holly branch and muttered spells.  He held back the onlookers behind him.  “Do not touch it – it is anathema!”

Before him flailed a red blob, not human or natural.  It resisted his spells, so the priest sighed.

“Damn.  Looks like we’ll need to sacrifice a virgin.”


This was written for Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Prompt #99, Anathema.

The image is a bloodfire ooze by Anne Stokes from MMIV, according to the site I found it on (which I believe claims it had no IP rules).  However, if I am wrong, please feel free to point it out and I’ll find something inevitably worse but probably fairer!  I am worried that the site lied to me…

    Well done! So far I’ve come up with nothing for that prompt. I might have to sit it out.

    I’ve never seen that Anne Stokes picture before and I thought I had seen everything of hers. I’m thinking of doing a showcase of my favourite ones of hers, like I did with Bob Kehl’s art. Maybe showcasing fantasy art might be a regular thing I do…
