This is my first year participating in the A to Z Challenge. The list of participants can be found here. Thanks to Arlee Bird and the co-hosts for hosting this awesome challenge. Check out the site here.
I’m also participating in a mini-hop that got started on theme reveal day when a few of us realized we had similar themes. It’s called Supernatural A to Z. Click below to check out the list of participants. 🙂
Hellhounds are the topic of the day. What to say about something that looks like a dog but is known for the black fur, and red glowing eyes sometimes possibly yellow. They are known to have super strength or speed. Also, known to have a foul odor and maybe even talk in some lore. In the show Supernatural they are controlled by high ranking demons such as a crossroads demon. In some lore, it is believed that if you see them or hear them howl it means impending death. Which goes with the being pets for a crossroads demon. They are the ones who make deals with humans and the hellhound helps collect the person’s soul when the deal is up. They have been in movies like Hellboy, The Omen, and Lost Boys. In television, they have been in Supernatural, Buffy the vampire slayer, and League of Super Evil. In popular fiction, they can be found in Laurell K. Hamilton’s Merry Gentry series, The Hound of Baskervilles, The Wheel of Time, and Good Omens.
