Second Librarian Vo makes an appearance in another project of mine, the permanently unfinished blog-as-random-art project “Book of the Gear” where he chronicles the travels of Eland the historian in the strange setting I play around with called (imaginatively enough) Gearworld.

    For those unfamiliar with Latin, Cameleopards do exist. You may know them better as giraffes.

  2. Jessica says:

    You learn something new every day. O.o

  3. SkyWookiee says:

    I miss Gearworld. I do know this sort of inspiration can’t be forced, though.

  4. CJ says:

    I love the realism of the scholar who knows everything about the obscure monograph but can’t remember your name. I know plenty of people like that!

  5. Lord the 22nd says:

    But what is a bybbuk?

  6. AngelicDirt says:

    Wikipedia to the rescue:

    “In Jewish folklore, a dybbuk (Hebrew: דיבוק‎) is a malicious, or benevolent possessing spirit believed to be the dislocated soul of a dead person.”

    Goes on to explain that they escaped from or cast out of Gehenna (the place, that is) because they committed suicide and other spiritual crimes… … … Yeah. >.>;…

  7. Lunah says:

    A Dybbuk is supposed to be a dead spirit possessing a living person’s body, or something along those lines.

    Ah, here you have it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dybbuk

    Also, Yayness to the giraffe refference 🙂

  8. Daemoniac says:

    Wait, so is Shadowchild a dybbuk? the dislocated soul of a dead person seems awfully close to his whole bird-body explanation… except that he wasn’t the bird before… ah well

    2nd time through 🙂

    … And of course, it is through Digger commentary that I learn that Dybbuk isn’t just a nasty person in a book (The Wishlist by Eoin Colfer, unless my memory is playing tricks with me) that merged with a dog and became a demon upon death, but an actual dead spirit possessing a body. This place is like a Haven of knowledge!
