ABSTRACT AND THE PHYSICAL ARE CATEGORIES AND LINES AND NUMBERS BOUND IN REALITY

DO AWAY WITH THEM AND THE ONLY THING LEFT IS THE LIMITLESS VOID-EXPANSE OF THE IMPERMEABLE, OF UNRESTRAINED CHAOS

WHICH OF COURSE BREEDS TRULY INCONQUERABLE FEAR

... Alrighty then. I guess this is the Ender Scrolls thread now. Cool.

But seriously, I do have a question: What is the Tarantella's desire? What does it want? Right now it's motives are undecipherable.

Also, this is worth mentioning.

So does anyone have ideas for a physical form, modus operandi, or anything at all, really?

I think giving her an "official" form would be doing a disservice.


Keep in mind that I'm not mad, it's just that I'd really rather not be sent on a wild goose chase to find your Fear a tangible form when you apparently don't want one for it.

If you read the rest of the thread, you'll see where I changed my mind after talking to Omega.

And what does any Fear want? What does that have to do with what a Fear can be used to *say*?

FEARS ARE OF COURSE BEINGS THAT KNOW THE TRUTH IN THAT THERE IS NO TRUTH SAVE EAT AND GROW LARGER, CONSUME AND CONSUME UNTIL ALL EXISTENCE IS ONLY DESIRE AND THERE IS ONLY ONE DESIRE AND THAT IS TO EAT

Then what does the Tarantella say? That's what makes me feel like the Tarantella is less than the bare minimum of what is used to create a Fear. What does it say, what does it want, what does it do? Without knowing at least one of these things, I can't see this being anything more than a single abstract concept.

The Red Cap wants to spread its influence through sex cults. The Quiet wants to undo everything. The Algernon Forest wants us to regress into previous states of life. What does the Tarantella want?

This is a Fear thread, not a Fear blog. All Fear threads are strictly abstract, because they're not really about anything but brainstorming. So Fears in a Fear thread don't really have to "want" anything or have anything to say. That's for the stories to handle. (Plus, if Hex were to objectively say, in this thread, that "This Fear has to be a metaphor for this or that," then that would make for a terrible Fear. The best part about Fears, at least for me, is that I can make them about whatever the hell I want.)


EXHIBITS:

Alright, I have an idea that can solve all my problems with this Fear. I think the Tarantella herself shouldn't have a form, but rather she is symbolized, brought into the realm we can understand by her Frumpers. This gives her a defined "want" as well, by her "wanting" to have Frumpers. The reason can be left ambiguous, which gives it a tolerable mystery element as to what she's planning with an army or scarecrows. With these things, the Tarantella seems like a good Fear concept to me, and I have no quarrel with it.

Cool, then feel free to write the Tarantella that way in your stories. The goal of this thread is to create a framework from which authors can come up with more portrayals like yours.
