Pythonic Legs / Ozymandian Legs

Pythonic Legs live in the clouds. They resemble the leg of a giant, cut off cleanly just below the knee. They hunt land creatures, descending suddenly to squash them. It is unknown how they consume their prey, since they hold their kill in their toes and ascend again to the clouds.

After Pythonic Legs mate (those with ‘left feet’ and ‘right feet’ appear to be different genders), they become land-bound and unmoving, and harden so that they appear to be made of stone. In this form they are called Ozymandian Legs. It is unclear whether they are still alive in this stage. Either way, if they are not destroyed, the land around them will turn into desert.

    • Thanks! I don’t post stuff like this as often as I used to, because if I have any spare time I’d prefer to work on my game. But I thought this was good and I didn’t want to waste it.

  1. I love this style of writing from you. I’ll repay you with one of mine:

    ~ The Trees that Twitch to the Tune of Pi ~

    In the Bagendee mountains, East of the old city Geru, there sits a grove nestled between valleys and cliffs. In this grove grow the trees of an ancient oaken varietal. From sprouting, the trees grow their roots, like all trees do, and join their roots with neighbors and local fungi, like all successful trees do, and take harvest from the plentiful water and nutrients of their mountainous home. But, between these connected roots, the trees of this special grove in the Bagendees twitch their roots in nine various intensities. In rhythm. Six – Seven – Six – Five – Four… and on and on. And that rhythm is the digits of pi. And sometimes they stop, and take a brief rest, and begin again from the beginning and nobody knows why. In fact, nobody even knows they do this, for if they did the trees would surely no longer be there.
