As a monster hunter I find it ironic that my favorite genre’s in movies and books are the supernatural fantasy types. It’s mostly about laughing at how accurate or inaccurate they are, or getting lost in someone else’s worries that hit home. I realized I’m a fictional character in AJ’s mind and that has a lot to do with it.
But one of the classic Buffy Halloween episodes featured the scariest thing of all – Bunnies. Anya was a former vengeance demon who was afraid of bunnies. They even referenced it in the Musical episode which was pretty awesome. Anya rocking out to bunnies was funny.
We all have our little bunnies. Things everyone else thinks are stupid to be afraid of. I know I’ve gone on and on about my fear of heights and flying. I have a terrible fear of needles which makes field medicine rather tricky. Maybe one day someone I know will be able to heal again like Aurora could, but right now I have to deal with stitches – it’s the Atharim way.
I’m also slightly terrified of clowns. No real reason, no bad incidents, just one of those omg creepy moments. I’m not going to run away from them, but they can trigger some pretty intense nightmares – not that my normal nightmares are any less intense.
But the best thing to do about our bunnies is to face them head on.
