I have an idea for the Red Cap. It ties into a lot of the misogyny and rape culture present, and Sheryl's blog kind of touched on where I wanted to go with it, but I don't think it was doing it strongly enough. To be honest, I got too tied up in the crossover posts and kind of lost my vision.

I think I have it back now, though. I want to take on the Red Cap. I'm excited about this idea, very energized.

I would also like to say that think the reason people have made it female is because it is kind of a female fear. Women have to worry about sex in a way that men don't. Have I said that before in this thread? I don't remember.

I'm interested in seeing where you take this Fear! It may once again make me interested in actually using it.

You can kick but you can’t get out.
There is history in the Rooms of the House.

I think that's just it. It's stereotypical and incorrect to say things like rape don't affect men, because they do. But with the current culture, at least in the States, a sexually active and open female is considered something shameful while a man who does the same is considered admirable. At the same time, a female victim of sexual assault or abuse is to be pitied and helped, while a male victim of the same crime somehow has something wrong with him, or is somehow "more deserving" of it happening because "he let a woman (or a man) take advantage of him, what kind of real man does that?" And in the same swoop, lesbians are apparently okay and "hot", but a gay male couple is "disgusting". Horrible double standard, but it's sadly the opinion of quite a few people. :c

I'm not sure how many people have played with Red Cap and double standards like these, but there's gotta be something there.

For inspirational purposes, there's currently some creep going around my neck of the woods kidnapping, sexually abusing, and then killing small-built women. I actually have started carrying mace as a weapon just in case, since I work later shifts in the evening. There could be something there with that theme and the Red Cap, if anyone is interested - I'm not exactly super interested in this particular Fear and I'm busy with other projects besides, or I'd write something with it.

That last idea sounded like a mix of smiley and the red cap. Interesting concept.

Slightly off topic: I find male homosexual couples to be just as cute/hot as female ones.

His post was directly connected to DarkShadows', imo. Whether it was extremely relevant or not is up for debate.

It doesn't. But dark shadows mentioned something about it in his post. And i said: slightly off topic. Trust me, you'll get used to my randomness after a while.
And no, I dont wanna cookie, but thanks for offering.

Thanks. Sorry dark.
You'll also get used to my ignorance/stupidity.

In my headcanon (and the Disciples stories I never finished writing) some people become Vessels of their own accord.

In which the Jack Of All pimp slaps a Scarlet Marked.

But yeah, for the Daniel-Verse I kind of gave the Red Cap this weird domain. I know the Capillaries or whatever is a thing, but I decided to go in my own direction and I wanna see what others think.

To give it a bit of a description, it's sort of a cross between reality and subconscious, and is therefore influenced by the minds of anyone visiting it, sometimes taking on traits from wherever they previously were, though more decrepit and with darker colors. IT becomes worse the deeper in you go, going as far as leaking blood from the walls and stuff. As the world is partially affected by the mind, the visitor's appearance or clothing may change upon entering, and they may see other people there as something else, such as Daniel perceiving the Blood Vessels and Scarlet Marked as vaguely humanoid blue things with varying levels of red aura surrounding them. IT's also possible to share memories here, although how it's done is open to speculation. The Red Cap appears there as a giant aurora compose of virtually every conceivable shade of red.


So, opinions?


The Daniel-Verse;
Daniel & Friends, A New Fear Will Soon Be Born, The Butterfly Proxy, My Soul Is On Fire, Studying Egypt/ The Darkness Has Empowered Me
And the one shot blog Fear The Biker

Also part of the Daniel-Verse is the Game Master's Tournament (other authors involved) and the Tale Weaver's Challenges (other authors involved, managed by ZacksQuest)

The God-Sent-Verse;
Luster Of The Dark Jewel

After reading through this thread, I'm glad that I'm not the only one who has made the connection between Red Cap and The Smiling Man, as in the story I'm writing, they've basically become the same fear, or at the very least, they are intrinsically intertwined.

In other news, it's also being written as more of
the fear of shame/fear of emotions, sort of the opposite of the cold boy. It basically represents being afraid of showing who you really are inside, of letting yourself feel emotions for fear of being hurt or worse, hurting others.
