Okay, so this is hard for me. I love everything magical or mythical or fantastical. But Some of my favorites.... Well my number one favorite is the Fae. Now the Fae has so many different types and myths I wouldn't be able to get into all of them. Although Michael did a great post last week on the Fae, check it out if you like. (He has a new feature made for this discussion. Every week he focuses on a mythical creature or monster.)  

The Fae I like are the tricksters, the impossible, the dark, the twisted. I just love those evil Fae. Of course I want them to have a heart too.. just may take a bit to find it.  I actually have a fairy tatoo behindmy left ear.

Another one of my favorites are the Elves. I love evles... like Lord of the Ring Elves. They are pretty huh!!!  I personally would be more of a tree elf or forest elf or earth elf. Something of that realm.

Elf: An elf (plural: elves) is a type of human-shaped supernatural being in Germanic mythology and folklore. (from Wikipedia)  In medieval Germanic-speaking cultures, elves seem generally to have been thought of as beings with magical powers and supernatural beauty, ambivalent towards everyday people and capable of either helping or hindering them.

I also really like the griffon. I mean mix between a lion and eagle. Kind of cool. They are just beaituful and magesctic and all that great stuff. They were fun to ride in Wolrld of Warcraft too. 

Griffin: The griffin, griffon, or gryphon (Greek: γρύφων, grýphōn, or γρύπων, grýpōn, early form γρύψ, grýps; Latin: gryphus) is a legendary creature with the body, tail, and back legs of a lion; the head and wings of an eagle; and an eagle's talons as its front feet. Because the lion was traditionally considered the king of the beasts and the eagle the king of birds, the griffin was thought to be an especially powerful and majestic creature. The griffin was also thought of as king of all creatures. Griffins are known for guarding treasure and priceless possessions (from Wikipedia)

So I am half fae, half elf and I have a griffon friend that takes me everywhere. I am a trickster who lives in a tree in the forest, and I have magical abilities. Also my Griffin, whose name shall be Larry, guards all my treasures. 

Really though. Unicorns, Gnomes, Mermaids..... I could go on and on.

So what is your favorite mytical creature?


  1. I think my favorite creature is that dog mermaid in that gif. That’s the most adorable thing ever!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. Right!? I'm pretty sure that's my spirit animal.

  2. I really wanted to be a mermaid when I was a kid lol. My favorite though is vampires. Cliche, I know, but true! Really though, I just love mythical/paranormal creatures in general! It's why urban fantasy is my favorite genre to read, especially when it has less common creatures.
