Well, guys, I find that Nowhere- Well, Nowhere's got some wierd happenings going on. Especially since I met those damned vampires (no offence. Please. It's just because of what I've found out). Apparently, there's a newbie in their group seeing visions and having extreme nightmares.
So, I come in with my Wards and my finest tools, ready to diagnose. Well, as it turns out, I saw she was merely being bothered by a small imp that liked to pick on the new girl by giving her bad dreams and such. I overdid it for her definate amusement and did the Lesser Banishing of the Pentagram before trapping the b****** in a very important mirror of mine.
Now, the Mirror's under lock and key if I ever need him again with a small slew of other captured and bound spirits.
Unfortunately, she's had recursive dreams (simmilar to PTSD) the same as the little Imp that was bugging her... And, so (without waiting for standing results) she ran off to her friend in the Coven of Vampires. Now, they did online research relevant to her dreams and have convinced themselves that, with one night of uncited and unreliable internet study:
1) A dark sealed god is trying to use her as a gateway.
2) Nyx told them to do a ritual on the 4th of July.
3) Some other Witch in town is trying to resurrect him and become the prophesized Queen of the dark God.
4) The Ritual involves me channeling the b*tch.
Newbie Syndrome run heywire? Sounds like it. I'm still skeptical of this plot, seeing as if it DID happen and the odds of a Witch who's insane enough AND have enough power to try to free an ancient dark god with hopes of becoming a ruler of the Earth? NAH. NO WAY.
But, wierd s**t's been going on.
Somehow, a thoughtform managed to get through my Wards and passed my other protections to bother me. None of my Spirits saw it enter, but they all saw it haul ass to make an escape when I caught it rummaging through my Drawers... Wierder than that was it was PHYSICAL. I mean, it was a dark-like energy, with some form, looking through my books of Research (all of which are Awakened aswell!) and dashed THROUGH my Wards (putting holes in them) and getting away as fast as he could.
And, I get a call from the other Vampires that the same thing's going on with them too!
I'm not going to even TRY to think about what kind of power could make a Thoughtform that could outdo Naturally created Spirits with years (in one case, hundreds) of experience on their shoulders, and slide through Wards undetected... And then bust through them to make an escape!
The Embodyment this Spirit is supposed to take is some kind of Raven God. Anyways, I love Ravens...
But I know when there's too many around.
For instance, a large group landing at the Duck Pond. Not to mention there's been 3 following me, and one sitting on my roof. Just- Sitting there outside my window. I tried everything from yelling at it to banishing it to trying to reach it at a mental spiritual level (connection)... All failed. It only left for a while when (hell, I was tired of all of it) I performed the Greater Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram, sword and all. Never saw it again outside my Window.
But, as skeptical as I am of these events... Something's happening here. Thoughtforms so strong that the most powerful of Wards I can manage (and, three levels of Wards to be exact) fall like paper under it, and sifting through my desk on a PHYSICAL level, leaving the other Spirits in the dust? The awkward gathering of such Ravens and the stalking of the few others I know who are Aware of things? And, if that wasn't enough, what about this overhanging presence I now feel, like the silence before a storm?
My worst fear of all is that this Ritual they've devised (according to the other friend, Nyx's ritual) to summon her could go TERRIBLY wrong, or that Nx will b****slap us for awakening her. :/ Mainly me, aswell, because I gotta be the one chanelling her!
But, what about the other things?! The Ravens? the Mysteriously Powerful thoughtforms? The overcasting doom, making my intuition scream that something's wrong? What if some Witch really IS trying to do it, and I'm stuck in the middle of this big fight in this small town?!
I mean, at the least, I can't ignore the signs that things are SERIOUSLY ariey, and something bad is about to happen...
Maybe I could just say:
HELP ME FIGURE OUT WHAT THIS IS.
