151B-Faust: The Bad Place

Faust decides that if he's going to have these powers, he's really going to enjoy them so, in no particular order, he gives himself:

A Doctor Strange cloak

Telekinesis

A demon common law wife and baby

A get-out-of-debt plan that involves humorously tearing off his own limbs

And grapes. In the winter. Crazy, right?

 

Seriously, though, we take the somewhat more grounded story of last week...and then completely go off the rails while Faust (and the writer of the chapbook...mostly the writer of the chapbook) imagines all the things he can do with powers from the devil, and then does them.

The creature this week is the ophies pteretos, and you might feel bad for them...if they weren't angry flying snakes.

The tales told and adapted for children children, the three pigs and Cinderella,  are extremely bloody and unforgiving, while the one that was originally for adults - the three bears - is about three very chill best bear friends enjoying a fun afternoon before dealing with a deeply psychologically troubled intruder...

Myths and Legends > 65-Oedipus: Motherboy

The story of Oedipus is fun until it isn't. I've met people with varying degrees of familiarity with the story. Some are familiar only with the central premise of the story, while others' knowledge only extends to a certain disgusting little complex popularized by a similarly-disgusting Viennese psychologist...
