Keleren, Goddess of Nightmares.
Keleren holds a strange place in the dark pantheon of the Outthrones, in that she was not born as a goddess. One of the first living beings to walk in the world, she was born before death, effectively being immortal. Corrupted by Umuril's darkness being cast on the world, she became monstrous and insatiable. Unable to sleep herself, Keleren sustained herself by infecting the sleep of other beings, and feeding on their torment.
Ogo, god of dreams, took offense to this, and demanded she be destroyed. Lathil, God of the Night and master to Ogo, was angered by Ogo's arrogance. Seeking to balance out Ogo's unchecked command, Lathil gave Keleren equal dominion over sleep. Ogo was given power over pleasant dreams and forgiving prophesies, where Keleren was given power over prophesies of pain and visions of agony.
Keleren is not known to have any active followers in her name. Many scholars suggest she may have been revered by prophets in Umuril's cult, but the evidence is largely circumstantial.
Nevertheless, Keleren plays an ongoing and ever-known presence in Siridian life. Those that wake from horrifying nightmares often claim to briefly see Keleren dancing away, whereas the very state of night terrors are known as "Keleren's Kiss." Artwork by @skelingtonhands

Just before I finally head home, something else catches my attention. Or rather, my sense of smell. Vanilla. A nostalgic aroma of vanilla that I’m positive can only come from one person and that one person only. However I haven’t met that person in the last four years or so. It’s been a long day. My mind must be playing tricks on me.
Vanilla. “The best way to feel time is to write.” It’s almost uncanny to a heavy burden being lifted off me and I can at least spread a broken bird’s wings. However I feel vulnerable against the world’s odds since I’m as small as tiny stars lighting some ruined world. I can’t tell if I’ve shrunk or that this book is ludicrously colossal, but the fact of the matter is that I’m in a white world filled with building sized books.
I’m sitting in the very centre of a fairy tale novel as the words from the pages rise. These words are shining, they hurt my eyes and tell their own tales through childish whispers. A boy no bigger than me is walking through science textbook.He’s practically a double-edged sword to me.

Making of Leo 🦁
The invulnerable Nemean Lion was beaten to death by Heracles, who then used his razor sharp claws to remove his hide to wear as a coat of armour. Zeus placed the Lion into the sky to live on as the constellation Leo. 6 ♡ 1 ✍
“As I speak through my own voice, the thirteen Oddities from this volume will all be awakened and used as my pawns,” the boy and I both unwillingly say in unison. Pages from both books immediately get ripped out by the wind. I’m able to catch a few glances of the pages’ contents, neat texts written in Japanese characters and elegant illustrations. The pages circle around us before they all fly out of the house like a flock of birds. The boy and I just stare at each us in silence as we slowly digest what’s just happened. “Well, I’ve seen equally weird things before,” I break the silence and get up on my feet, then offer my hand to him. He sighs and takes it, now we’re both standing. That brief second when our hands touched, even that felt familiar.
