    um. um. might not have time to totally finish it this week, so I'll just post it now, and perhaps fix it up later...:d but right now I'm tired, tired...sleepy...

    so here's my firestarter/fireplace abductor. The topic put me in mind of those bricks I used to use to get fires goin' in the winter... not the most original, but ah well, I still like it =O

    Firestarters are small, reclusive, and rather tempermental creatures, considered both a bane and blessing of the common household. They find their way into people's homes, most often during the winter, and make a permanent nest in the fireplace. A Firestarter never has to leave once they move in, because all they ever eat is hot ash, and the home owner is careful to feed wood/paper into the lair for burning now and then, lest it come out in search of fuel aroud the house. The black spots on it's translucent skin are created from the ash it consumes, and it indicates when the thing is growing hungry once again.
    This is can often be a good thing for the homeowner as well, for they have a near continual fire going during the cold nights of winter. This is not so wonderful in the summer, but attempts at removing firestarters are rarely succesful and often disastrous. One attempt, in which a man threw a bucket of water over the small creature in order to make the starter's lair less desirable, resulted in the burning down of the whole neighborhood and quite a bit of the surrounding woods. No one could get back into the area for two months, either, as so many firestarters had gathered to eat what was left.

    This needs lots of clean up!


    C.O.W. - #044: Fire Starter

    The Speckled Lensmoth
    This tropical moth is so called due to it's large quadular wings each containing a natural crystaline lens, which is used for the moth's feeding procedure.
    A Lensmoth will position itself on a plant in a sunny area, and focus light though it's wings onto the lower leaves and branches, causing the sap of the plant to burst though the skin from heat.
    Although these lens tend to atrract larger predators such as birds, the Lensmoth can temporarily blind an attacker with a complex flurry of it's wings.

    Unfortunately, recent illegal import of the moth into the tinder-dry outback of Australia has started many fires, some of them catastrophic.

    Cool stuff, GreenTopaz.

    Ugh, Erilaz - I was doing a moth-like creature, too! heh, at least there are some big differences between our concepts.

    I think the major difference will be that yours will actually look good!

    Damn Erliaz took my idea of using a lense to focus light to start fires. My creature idea was completely different but using the lense is the same. Guess Ill have to go back to the drawing board on this one. Thankfully being all done with classes for the semester means plenty of time to ponder.

    Simonl: Infernal snail!? whoa, that sounds hot!

    FINAL

    Vascrim Devaco
    Every year in the same time starts season of fire. It is season when Devacos copulate, which is very danger for nature. Devaco male (18m long) has two sort of special salivary glands which void chemicals when he copulate or when he is very agressive. These glands are on his back between massive bony disks. Two voied chemicals are safe but when they joint together, they start to burn! Disks keep the fire only at his back where is safe for him, but not for others.
