Which historical badass are you?

Which Historical Badass Are You?

Caesar Augustus
Caesar
You got Caesar Augustus!

You are a brutal tactician, famously outwitting Marc Antony after the crumbling of the Second Triumvirate at the Battle of Actium and solidifying yourself as the sole ruler of Rome. As the first emperor of Roman Empire, you are the one which all emperors who succeed you shall look to as a measure of success as your reign ushered in two centuries of peace known as the Pax Romana. You literally set the bar for the industry of empire.

A Shadow in The Darkness

Tales From The ShadowsideTALES FROM THE SHADOWSIDE

A couple of nights ago, while in the midst of the period of composing The Shadow Side store, while walking towards the kitchen to acquire a replenishment of the Belialian brew, what appeared to be a shadow extended forth from the doorway towards My direction. The area was pleasantly gloomy with only the moonlight filtering in through the window, which remained undisturbed. A shadow in the darkness. As I continued into the kitchen, I felt as if something was passing by Me accompanied by an audible "hissing" sort of breathing sound, in what could perhaps be likened to a 'demonic dragon', or "Draegon", which actually seems quite appropriate.

A very similar experience as a Dracling as well transpired while I was in bed at a former residence. One could actually discern slow moving 'footsteps' {or 'hoof steps'?} moving through the living room, which ceased just as mysteriously. Another time at a former residence, My mother claimed to have heard what she said sounded like heavy breathing deriving from My room while I was out somewhere.

Personally, I took this anomaly as a psychological 'confirmation' of My efforts, as it were, furthering My inspiration and resolve. Such occurrences tend to happen during the creation of some nefarious project, and more frequently shortly before, during, or after a Magical Working. Probably a resonant projection materializing in a conducive atmosphere. ∞

Oh, what unknown complements they give!

Magus LaVey mentions in the Foreword to The Devil's Notebook about how the herd all of a sudden become pretentiously righteous while in the presence of a known Satanist, desperately excavating crosses and rosaries for some sort of 'protection', and has proven itself to be redundantly true. The Satanist is empowered just by being.

While not purposefully trying to intimidate, it is just as amusing when someone attempts to act unintimidated as when they are - at least the latter reaction is honest. It seems perhaps to be something that is instinctively felt on a primal level.

There's this little teller at the local market who upon every time serving Me tries to get Me through as soon as possible, which is preferable as it is, but then acts all nervous, avoiding eye contact, gulping down water, etc. Overhearing another customer when questioned about if she is frightened {the customer made a shuddering gesture}, to which the teller vehemently said "No!" while waving a finger.

While going about one's business accumulating groceries, it seems the herd are compelled to comment with whispers of "es el malo" {the "bad man"}, which always brings a smirk to My face. Of course, there has always been the whispers of "devil", "Satan", even "asesino" {assassin, killer}. Language depending upon location. It is wise to be wary of the natives' vernacular.

At the register, I simply pass through, politely collecting My items, even with a "Gracias, buenas noches" {"thank you, good night"} to the bagger, while the teller continues her uncomfortable behavior. It would be a bit rude and unprofessional, if it wasn't for understanding their psychology.

Oh, what unknown complements they give! ∞



Addendum {8/12/L}

Was paid couple of flattering complements lately. First, overheard one of the natives say "Es el mas Malo" which means "He's the most Evil One"; and one recently at the market with "Es muy Malo" meaning "He's very Evil." And then a simple "Wow" to the Immaculate Defecation monsterpiece in The Shadow Gallery is quite flattering, in a speechless sort of way. I Am content in having inspired such an impression, and if I have traumatized and otherwise motivated introspection. ∞
