Peephole In My Skull

Disney Demons!

Posted by Karen

Hey everyone! A few months ago, Peat spent some time doing research on his characters. Namely, on what Disney characters they would be. Here are the results:



The hero of our story, folks.



Strong, independent, and completely badass. Not to mention…


I ship it.



Smart and capable. Kind, but not going to let a man push her around.



A man.



A tricky merchant that’s more than meets the eye.



My favorite musical redhead.



Powerful and manipulative. Not to mention hot as hell.



A prince with humble beginnings and a leader’s heart.



Scrappy and stubborn, wild as any coreling.



A crone with powers and much to teach.



“I’m a damsel, I’m in distress, I can handle it…”



Controlling, blunt, passive-aggressive… One of my favorite characters to be honest.



Commanding and just all-around cool.

Jeph Bales:


Ice-harvesting is just like regular farming. Right?

Mind Demon:


Scary as heck. Enough said.



Once a messenger, always a messenger.


Selia-Adelaide bonfamille

Respected and refined.



What a woman.

Fanart: Two Tattoos

Posted by Karen

Hey everyone! Last week, we got word of two die-hard fans who got companion tattoos! These are seriously frikken awesome. The lines of the ward circles are so clean and they’re spaced -perfectly-. The rest of those tatts don’t look bad either!

Seriously awesome tattoos, guys. They’ll keep you protected for a long time to come.


Thanks so much to Teena Evans for letting us know about these awesome tattoos. Twice the wards means twice the power to kick some serious demon butt.

Warded Wednesday: On A Date Winner!

Posted by Karen

Hey everyone! This week’s comments had me literally laughing out loud. Some of the date ideas were really cool. I can definitely say there are a few in here I’d love to be taken out on.

Once again, the winner was chosen randomly:

Date with Elona paper as she seems like a very experienced milf. As to what we would do well… I’m sure you can guess what we would do going by Elona’s insatiable appetite. -Sam

Haha, congratulations, Sam! We’ll be contacting you shortly about your prize.

Our next Warded Wednesday is TOMORROW. In the meantime, we’d like to give a shout-out to some other entries:

Who? Of course I would take Arlen on a date.
Why? Because he is my favorite character. What makes him so attractive is his passion to help people learn how to protect themselves and to be independent and to fight for their survival and their wishes.
What we would do? First, he can show me how to fight demons during the day and show me some important moves and tricks. Then I would love to learn more about his life before and after he became the warded man. I would also like to know how he imagines his future. Plus he could show me how to paint wards so I can protect my home. In the night we could show some demons the light. Then we would watch the sunrise as a ‘romantic end of the night’. -Rebecca 

The main female characters are too crazy for my tastes, Inevera scares the everything out of me, I’ll probably hire a food taster to check my dinner. oh, and a ninja to watch my back.
My date would be Ashia, the only reasonable human being in Thesa. She is mentally stable, appears normal, but is atually very intriguing, and of course, if we get mugged I’ll hide behind her and smoke till she’s done. Won’t need the ‘Gone Fishing’ sign that I swiped.
I’ll cook her dinner, I think, then a walk by the river bank – well away from water demons – So much water would surely amaze any Krasian.
By the way, I just love her name. Its a beautiful variation on an already beautiful Arab name. -Khaled

I would take inevera on a date, from her description she sounds like she would take your breath away with her beauty. We would go scuba diving to show her a whole new way of looking at the world then I would ask her to cast the dice for me and get a glimpse of future possibilities, perhaps she may for tell greatness me. -Stinga

What, no Rojer or Jardir? Ah well, more for me 😉

Thanks so much to everyone who sent in their submissions! If you have any suggestions for future Warded Wednesday questions, feel free to leave them in the comments below.
