    Summary

    Oh, he was a man, if you needed one! He could talk like anyone, and look like anyone, and climb like a langur, and shoot like a Pathan. And so I thought— Here is Miss Dawson on a fool’s errand, and here is Mr. O’Hara, who is no fool, but would be better off looking like one. And why not let one guide the other?

    The Great Game at Dunhuang Monastery.

    Summary

    Before anyone reports this post, I got this AMA authorised by posting proof to a mod, so there.

    Hi, Reddit! I’m no-one special, but about 6 months ago, I moved into a flat above a cafe next door to a bookshop, and my life has never been the same since, because the man who runs the bookshop is some sort of ageless (mostly) benevolent eldritch being. By all accounts, he hasn’t aged a day since at least 1944, sometimes he seems to have just too many eyes, and I once saw him turn water into wine (a nice rosé). His coworker / best friend / boyfriend / shadow entity is also definitely some kind of cryptid, but despite trying harder to be a bastard, he’s somehow less successful at it.

    So, if you have any questions about what it’s like to live next door to an eternal bastard man, AMA!

    Or, a cryptid bastard man haunts Reddit, trying to find out how to ask out his crush of the past 6,000 years and getting downvoted to literal oblivion. Just normal stuff on the world wide web.
