Twas six nights before Christmas

So after months of plaining and a hint of procrastination I finally got the rue steaks ready for the Rake.  The only dificult part of preparing these anti rake delights was trying to stuff the steaks with the rue. I knew that if I just left the rue on the Steaks The rake wouldn't even touch them.  It was a bit tricky to stuff the steaks at first but after a while it got a smidgen easier.  Anyway on the night of December 19th I put the rue steaks and a dish of absinthe out in my family's backyard.  I set up a place in an area on the back porch where the Rake couldn't see me but i could see him as to watch the Rake eat this "wonderful" meal I made for him.  I also had a machete and a short sword at the ready just in case the Rake were to some how pass out and well I would try to put an end to him.  but I set up my little meal for the clawed bastard at around 10:30p.m. at night he didn't show til around 11'oclock or so. He went for the dish of absinthe first and lapped it up fairly quickly then his attention was drawn by the steaks witch the Rake being the Rake began to chow down until the rue did it's thing and caused the Rake what I could most definitely describe as "a shit ton of pain."  I turn on the porch light to see what exactly what was going on The rue as best as I can describe was chemically burning the Rakes mouth.  The Rake was frantically trying to get the Rue out of his mouth but in the process of doing such a thing he passed out.   I saw this as my window of opportunity to finish this bastard once and for all.  To put put an end to him stalking my friend.  An end to him killing innocence. I rushed outside swords at the ready.  I stood there looking at him this is it I thought it's over.  I wish I could type that I did.  I was the man who killed the Rake but I can't because I was to slow.  The Rake woke up the second I raised my blades to deliver the death blow and struck me with an open clawed hand to my right leg.  needles to say it hurt like a living hell.  As I fell to the ground the Rake attempted to pounce on me but missed due to him being slightly inebriated by the absinthe.  Despite the pain in my leg I got back up and grabbed both my swords ready to defend my self.  The Rake got back up and looked directly at me and let out a ear piercing screech that apparently woke my parents up.  hehe.  The Rake was ready to come at me again when something from the trees swooped down, grabbed the Rake, and took him to an area where the porch's light couldn't reach at almost break neck speed.   I'm not sure what it was but it sounded pissed.  I could here the sound of the Rake making whimpering sounds as this thing was what I guess could be described as an ass chewing.  My mom and dad came out just as I was heading back inside. They were pretty frantic as any parent would.  I didn't tell them the whole deal about a humanoid abomination trying to kill me. I was going to tell them that I was trying to take care of a wild animal problem myself but I didn't get the chance because they noticed my leg was bleeding pretty badly so they took me straight to the hospital.  The doctors were able to stitch my leg up however I'm probably going to be limping for a awhile.  The doctor said I was lucky that none of my major veins were cut other wise I might be dead.  I know most of you are probably going to chew me out for being reckless and your right. I apologize for being so stupid.  I haven't seen the Rake in a while.  i'm guessing he's either recovering from the rue or the savage beating he may have receaved from whatever it was that grabbed him during the inciddent.  Either way it make for a bit of a good break.  anyway I should probably wrap this entry up the only way I can by say Merry Christmas and Happy holidays to all of you who have stuck by me.  I hope that you holidays aren't filled with Eldritch abominations, but with peace, love and hope fpr the future that one day we will concur these bastards. Sorry if this last bit kind of sounded sappy. Oh well tis the season.

Getting everything ready and a new resolve.

Well Thanksgiving has past and now it's that time of the year again: Christmas and the one time of the year that ol' slendy is at his weakest, the Solstice.  From what I remember about this the solstice is suppose to represent light coming into the world or something like that I'm not 100% certain on that but bottom line He gets weak during this time of year.  I know some of you are probably wondering why I bring this up. Well I have a theory that maybe the solstice can be used against the Rake as well but again not 100% certain on that.  Anyway I was recently in kind of a depressive mood due to it being so close to the time of year that me and the woman from my past had a falling out. Thankfully Shady and a dream I had helped me gain some new resolve. I believe this dream took place on the night of November 26th and I can only remember was that I sitting in a doctors office and I had a bleeding wound in my chest area. On the wall of the doctor's office I saw the words written in my blood "You know what you must do in order to conquer the rotting fiend."  Then for some reason a white wolf comes in to the office (looking at you Mystery) and starts to lick the wound on my chest.  My first instinct was to try and push the wolf off but before I do the wolf stops licking and leaves the room.  That's when I notice that the wound is gone then I woke up feeling strangely better.  I think I know what I'm going to do in order to beat Rot and hopefully put an end to his game.  Well I guess that's all I have to say for now.  At any rate I must get started on those Rue and absinthe steaks for the Rake. It's time I put an end to this once and for all. I'll try not to be reckless.  I'll try to post here again by Christmas or a few days after. 
ps sorry for not posting on my youtube account as much as I said I would.

The Week after Halloween

Once again I apologize for not posting soon enough. I'm going to start by telling you that Rot is back and he's pretty much mind fucking me through my dreams with what he wants me to do to the woman from my past.  The Dream started on October 27th. The dream is always the same.  I'm standing in my backyard an my hands are covered in blood.  I then see the Rake who's crouching down near the entrance to my families garden and he appears to be eating someone who has been disemboweled. The Rake looks right at me and he looks like he's mouthing the words"Thanks for the meal."  Then the Rake just crawls off into the fields and I go to see who it was that the Rake killed and.... it's her. that woman I was once good friends with.  She with what little life she has left looks at me with hate in her eyes and says"I thought we were friends."  Then I hear Rot Laughing wildly from all sides.  The most recent time I had the dream Rot decided to to show himself and talk down to me. "Eventually this will happen given that I push all the right buttons.  And it's a shame to seeing how close you two were"  It was at this point that I got tired  of Rot's mouth and I'm not sure how but I willed my dream to conjure an earth fist from the ground to diliver a uppercut to Rot's chin.  All I have to say about that is DIRECT HIT!  The strange thing was the second the fist made impact on his chin I woke up.

Anyway I would have posted this sooner but there was an incident the week after Halloween.  Sebastian went missing on November 4th and I went a little nuts trying to find him. Until I thought of the worst and possible fate for my feline friend.  I know this kind of goes against what I try to tell people when dealing with the Rake.  But I made the decision to Go after the Rake in the Backfields to find what may have happened to Sebastian.  I grabbed my Machete, my knives, and a water gun. All of which had some form of rue on the or in the case of the water gun, in them. The search for Sebastian took at least three ours and I was almost ready to give up until I heard loud mowing coming from my left.  I turned to see Sebastian who was in what looked like a crudely made cage.  The Cage looked to be made from wood and briar thorns.  I quickly got Sebastian out of this cage when I turned to See The Rake looking pissed off.  I ran with Sebastian back to my house, when we got close I almost tripped letting Sebastian out of my grip.  The Rake went right past me and was heading straight for Sebastian.  That is until I grazed the Rake's cheek with some rue oil from my water gun.  The Rake feeling rue on his face fell off balance and began to scream.  I began to spray him non stop until it looked like he was in severe pain. I thought this would have Been the perfect opportunity to put an end to this thing.  I un sheathed my machete and got ready to go Highlander on him.  Until the Rake kicked my leg  while he was writhing in pain. So I missed but I did  cut his belly up pretty good accidental as it may have been.  After that Little accidental disembowlment, the Rake quickly got into the crawling postition and ran off.  I looked over at Sebastian who was watching the event go down. I walk over to him, picked him back up, and said,"welcome home Sebastian."
 Wow i hope this post wasn't to long.  Oh another not I finally put a vlog on youtube to act as a companion to this blog.

Anyway Stay Safe.

Research, Another plague Doctor, and something that scares The Rake.

First of all I just want to apologize for not posting as often.  You can thank college for that.  (totally worth it though as it makes for a nice distraction from The rake.)  Any way I think I may have found a pepper that would kick my Spicy Concoction to 11 with the help from a little something called the ghost pepper.  The only problem is I'm not so sure where to find the stuff.  I might just check around some health food stores or something.  Anyway Skan recently(last night) talked to me on YouTube and warned me about THE Plague doctor on account of my recent dreams about plague Doctors. Granted I did have a recent dream where a Plague doctor who was dressed in white and wearing a sky blue mask basically told me"One path will lead to the lose of free will and loved ones, while the other path will lead to hope."  But the Plague Doctor that Skan talked about is quite a nasty fellow who spreads the plague and his Plague doctor mask might not be a mask.(eep) During mine and Skan's conversation lil' Sebastien started flipping out and wouldn't you know it the Rake was outside but he seemed worried.  It looked like the Rake was "talking" to something up in the tree tops.  This little inncident went on for about 10 minutes until I heard a avian like Sound from the sky and The Rake high tailed it back to the woods.  I told skan about the incident and she theorized that it may have been a type of bird creature known as The Convocation.  I'm not sure if I agree with the theory but the incident in question does bring back a memory from when I was 14 or so.  I remember that I was talking on the phone with a friend and I saw what at first looked like a plastic bag stuck in a tree.  for some reason I grab my binoculars to see if I was right or not but....well I found out through the binoculars it wasn't a bag at all.  This thing looked almost like a bat hanging from a tree limb with its thumbs.  Then it positioned itself on the tree limb in a crouching position.  It's physique didn't look much like a bat any more as much as it did Gollum from Lord of the rings to some extent.  The next thing I knew it jumped up into the sky and disappeared.  I think maybe that that thing I saw when I was 14 was probably what as talking to the rake but well...DAMN IT I thinking to hard about this. Oh well at any rate going to be hanging out with some friends over the weekend.  That's all i have to say for now I guess. 

Stay safe

I'm back in school. And though the faces may have changed, the problems are still the same. ps Rot is an ASSHOLE

Sorry if I didn't post anything sooner like I said I would for those who follow my YouTube page.   Anyway college has started back up again for me (yay) Any who I'm taking elementary Spanish 2 and world lit 1 every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.  Which means I'll have Tuesdays and Thursdays to do as I please.  So far I'm really enjoying my classes.  But the best part of coming back to college, getting to see all my dear friends.

Also Rot was screwing with my dreams this past week.  I don't feel like going into too much detail about what the dreams are about but he's still trying his tactic of making me remember her when I really don't fucking want to and he's getting really aggressive about it as well.  Thankfully this weeks sleep has been a bit better thanks to Skan telling me about special herbs that help with dealing with rot.  Thanks skan, I owe you one.

I haven't seen the Rake since I got him drunk on absinthe. Hopefully I'll have more absinthe and rue oil for when he does come back.  Like I said many times before I have a plan.

Guess that's all I have to say for now.

Stay safe everyone
ps brownie points for anyone who can guess what the title of this post is a reference to.

Absinthe, New plan of action, and some strange dreams

So my weekend was interesting.  I got to see what the Rake was like tipsy,  But I'm getting ahead of myself let's start from the beginning yes?

Last week me and Skan where discussing different ways to some how get rue(an herb that the Rake has a strong dislike for) into the Rake's system somehow. That's when I got the idea to use Absinthe a very strong alcoholic beverage that just happens to have wormwood in it.  Wormwood has the opposite effect on the Rake instead of running for the hill like what rue would do to him, apparently wormwood is in a sense like Rake-nip. Anyway my idea is to soak some raw meat in rue oil and absinthe, but first I wanted to see if absinthe would attract the Rake.  Now I know what some of you are saying"But Faustus Absinthe is hard to get and very expensive."  However I was able to find some absinthe albeit not the good kind but absinthe none the less. (and yes it was expensive)  Normally I could go on and on about alcohol but I'm getting off topic.  Time to start talking about my findings of what happens when the Rake drinks absinthe.

Date: August 13th.

I set a dish of absinthe out for the Rake that in an area where I cloud watch the Rake's reaction to The Absinthe. the Rake came around my property around 8:00 pm or so.  The Rake was doing his usual schtick of leaving me dead animals then it sniffed the air and noticed the dish with absinthe and started to greedily drink the stuff up.  After drank the absinthe he just sat there for a little while then he stood up rather clumsily and proceeded to fall flat on his ass.  I'm not going to lie seeing the thing that's been menacing me for awhile now was a pretty funny sight.  after that little display of clumsiness the Rake left.

Strange dreams have been plaguing my sleep since august 3rd  and another dream that was related to slender man on  August 8th.

Dream from august 3rd
I was walking around in the back fields of were I live when I saw a creature with long legs, walked on all fours, and was super tall. At first I thought is was slender man but slender man isn't covered with hair. It then looked at me then it looked at the wooded area then stared back at me for what seemed like five minutes. That's when I heard the sound of a low pitched siren and this creature ran off.  Each time I had this dream It seemed like I was getting closer to this creature.  The last time I dreamed about this creature I was so close to it I could smell it.  It smelled like the woods during winter time.  This time when it ran off i tried to chase after it but I trip over a rock or something and I remember I was help up by what looked like a plague doctor.  The Plague Doctor then told me to be a little more careful.  That was the last time I had the dream.

Drawing from the dream:

Dream from August 8th:
I remember that Noah was at my house for some reason and so was some nameless women. We were all in my parents room talking about something. what that something was I can't really remember. The the bedpost of my parents bed post turned into slender Man. Noah and the unnamed woman ran out of the room. The Next thing I know I was holding a pellet gun and was ready to take on Slender man. then I woke to the sound of my cell phone's alarm.  In hindsight using a pellet would not be very effective against an eldritch abomination, no?  
anyway here's a drawing from the dream.

On a much lighter note Shady's back from her Adventure with Victor. (Yay)

Well I guess that all I have to say for now.

Stay safe

New info, an ambush, and a new little friend.

Alright so the good news is it wasn't a trap and I got some information.  The bad news is me and the person  who was giving me the info were ambushed by a third party.  So for the sake of keep myself and my informant safe I will refer to him just as that. Anyway on to what happened. 

I left my home to make the journey to my informant's location sometime mid afternoon.  The trip up there was actually pretty nice aside from the fact that there's a heat wave going on. When I finally made it to the address that was on the letter I found that it was a the home of a man who looked to be in his early fifties who welcomed me inside with open arms. After I came inside he told me the origin of the being who calls himself Rot.

*****During the 14th century a group of occultists who's name was lost to time attempted to summon something into our plain of existence in a vain attempt to gain unearthly power.  However this group only succeeded half way with the deaths of most of the members of this group but five.  The Being that they summoned into our world was only existed in between the material world and the spirit world.  The being had a long almost bird like nose, eyes with out color in the irises, and black hair that seemed to be receding.  This being introduced itself as Rot.  The five people who didn't die because of the botched ceremony had a much worse fate in store  for them.  Rot like I said before only existing partially in the material world placed his hand on each of the surviving members heads with promises of untold power,  however everything has a price.  The price that some of them paid was with their lives.  one member was reported to have been committed to an insane asylum where he eventually chewed through his own tongue and bleed to death. The following was written on his cell wall in his blood that read: Too WEAK!  Another surviving member killed his family in a fit of blind rage  then died of what appeared to be a heart attack.  When the police went to investigate the scene of the murder, on the wall of the home were the murder took place the following was written: STILL NOT GOOD ENOUGH!***** 

That's around the time me and my informant heard the sound of a car pulling into his drive way and a look of dread appeared upon my informants face.  He began to panic, he rushed me out the back door of his home and told me to run for it.  At first I didn't understand what was going on until he pulled out a gun and told me if I didn't run he'd give me some incentive to.  At that point I took off running.  I don't think I've ever run that fast in my life but at the same time I think I should have stayed behind and help the old man.  I finally made back home with no one following me but who else should I see in the backyard of my house but The Rake and he looked like he had something cornered. At first I thought it was another rabbit but it wasn't it was a little black and white kitten.  At that point I sneaked to the herd garden and garbed a little bit of rue.  Then I sneaked behind the Rake and made him Rue the day he ever messed with a cat in my presences.  All I did was I taped on his back with the rue, he quickly turned around saw the rue in my hand, let out an ear splitting scream, and took off running.  Oh the plans I have for rue.  Anyway I went to check on the kitten and he looked like he was unharmed by the rake thankfully.  Needless to say I've pretty much adopted the little fellow and I've taken to calling him Sebastian.  (don't ask were the name came from) 

  I think I might as well tell you all the plan I have for the Rue oil.  I plan on using the rue oil to clean my bladed weapons with hopefully to give them some of the same evil fearing powers as the rue itself.  Hopefully this should work.

Sorry this took me so long to get posted.

Stay safe

My minds made up.

I've decided to go to the area that was mention in the letter I got on August 2nd.  But I'm also bringing some smoke bombs, SC, and a knife just in case this is some kind of trap.  Though I'm not sure who would want to trap someone like me.  At any rate I'll be off to the location sometime tomorrow.  Well wish me luck and hopefully I'll have new info on Rot. 

Also on an unrelated note I think I may try to use the infusion on some rue with oil. I have a plan for the next time I see the Rake.

Til next time, Stay safe.

Good news

I'm back again with a bit of good news.  I think I may have found the herd that attracted The rake in to the herb garden from my fourth blogpost. 

Date: Saturday, July 30th.  Time: around one in the afternoon.

As usual for almost every Saturday I went outside to do some yard work with some liquified spicy concoction in a spray bottle just in case Mr. Long Sharp claws decided to show his face.  For the most part all my work went on with out a problem until I went to do some trimming in my family's garden.  When I entered the garden I saw who else but the Rake trying to chase a poor rabbit possibly to make a meal out if it.  Now I know a lot of you reading are going to call me an idiot for what I did but darn it I couldn't just let the Rake hurt the rabbit.  Anyway me being me threw a rock at the humaniod abomination to draw it's attention away from the rabbit.  Good news was the rabbit was safe, the bad news I was now on the menu.  Unfortunatly for that poor bastard I had a little surprise for him.  Needless to say He found out what that little surprise was the hard way(the best way for him)  And once again I heard the Rake's horrible cries of pain and to be honest part of me was taking pleasure in it.  I was about to spray him again to show him who's the boss around here until he swiped at the hand that was holding the spray bottle and in the process cutting my hand.  And yeah it friggin hurt.  It was around that time that I decide to book it back inside the house with the Rake following close behind. I was able to make it to the back porch door and once again the Rake seemed drawn to an herb in the herb garden and was once again spooked by something and ran off. That's when I took the opportunity to find out what attracted the rake to the herbs.  Turns out it was a wormwood herb that was attracting the Rake.  But more importantly I also found out what spooked him. The herb Rue.

Also another bit of news regarding Rot.  Yesterday afternoon I found a letter someone put in my mail box with no return address.  The Letter said," I you want more information on Rot please come to the following address.  Please try to get here by six days time or what information I have for you will be lost."  That was all the letter said.  I may be a nerd but I'm not stupid  If I'm going up to this area I'm going to be prepared.

 Well I'm going to think this through though I may go.  After all knowledge is a weapon.

Stay safe

Bad dreams

Before I start talking about recent events I'd like to mention that my spicy Concoction has helped another person being menaced by the Rake by the name of Skan who discovered my blog through a mutual acquaintance.

Any way on to the meat of the matter.  Around the date of July 16th or so I've been having a few bad dreams.  These weren't standard nightmares like Slender man and the Rake, no these were more dreams of a woman from my past that I'd rather sooner forget.  My memory is a little hazy on the first few nightmare but the earliest I remember happened around Tuesday July 19th and another dream I remembered happening on Friday July 22nd

Dream from July 19th:  I remember that I was walking to the living room of my home and I just happen to see the Rake sitting near my fire place smiling. That around the time the woman from my past appeared. I'm not certain what was said between us but she  said something that was enough to make something inside me snap and put my hands around their throat. Every fiber of my being is seething with this primal wrath. The Rake was still sitting near the fire place giggling at the whole situation. I then felt a hand on my shoulder. I turned my head to a man with avian like features. This man had a long bird like nose, Receding Hair line, black hair. His eyes were the scariest part. It looked like he had no coloration around his pupils.  The next thing know me and this avian bastard were both sitting at the dining room table and he introduced himself as Rot. Rot admitted he was the one who was reintroducing this person into my dreams. I asked him if he was responsible for the rake stalking around my house. He didn't give me an answer. All he did was say,"Why should I answer to someone like you? You who attacked someone you once considered a friend at one time." I was then awakened by my cellphone's alarm. 

 Before I talk about the Dream from July 22nd I'd like to mention that I was encouraged by two friends of mine Miss Shady and Mystery to try and lucid dream to deal with Rot.  I discovered a technique that works somewhat well.  This technique requires that one should open and closes ones hand in an attempt to maintain ones sense of the waking world and the dream world.  I've also heard of another technique that has to do with drawing some form of symbol on your hand and to check regularly to see if the symbol is still there if dreaming.  Personally I've been doing the former than the latter.  At any rate let's get on with the dream.  

Dream from July 22nd:  I remember I was heading out to my family's backyard to do some yard work until I noticed my hand was somewhat cartoonish. That was around the time the Rake showed up and attacked me. After the Rake left a nasty slash across my chest and left me for dead, I decided now was a good time to test the limits of lucid dreaming. I stood up healed my wounds and delivered what tv tropes would describe as a "curb-stomp battle" Alex Mercer style. I remember turning my arm into a tentacle grabbing the Rake and slamming him around the back yard. After gleefully slamming the Rake around like a rag doll I decide to give it a taste of it's own medicine i.e. giving myself claw hands and I proceeded to cut the Rake's fingers off one by one. After cutting his fingers off he began to make a sound I could only describe as whimpering. I finally decided to deliver the killing blow until someone stop my hand and said,"You're having a lot of fun mutilating her." I turned my head to see Rot and I asked why what he was doing in my dream and why he addressed the Rake as a her. He then told me to look for myself. I turned my head back to the Rake, but the Rake was no longer there and in it's place was her, the person from my past that Bastard made me remember. Then Rot whispered in my ear and told me,"You seem to have a lot of rage in your heart, why not continue to let it out, yes? Let yourself become the monster that I need." That's around the time I woke up in a cold sweat. After that little incident I didn't sleep once that weekend. 

I'm not completely sure what Rot meant by becoming the monster he needs but it's still very worrisome.

Also on a bit of a lighter note I've learned from Mystery how to liquify my spicy concoction by use of letting the ingredients soak in oil or alchool so I can use it in a spray bottle. Just in case.
Well I guess that's enough for tonight.

Dead animals, weapons, and a theroy that connects The Rake with slender Man

Since the incident from Monday, July 11th a certain someone has been leaving dead animals on my door step. These dead animals look like they have been sliced open by a pair of sharp claws.  At first The rake was only leaving dead birds, but now it's gotten to the point were it's leaving dead rabbits on my doorstep.  This is just the Rake's way of trying to intimidate me and it's not working.

Alright enough talk about the present the rake has been leaving me.  Now to talk about the kinds of weapons to use against the rake.  The first and probably the most obvious choice would be to use a gun of some sort. Unfortunatly the closest things i own that are close to that are a couple of b.b. guns and a air soft pistol.  These may help me in a jam though however I'd personally suggest using a gun if one owns one.  Melee weapons are also useful in a tight fix.  And by melee weapons I don't mean a baseball bat but axe's and swords. Pretty much anything you can use with a sharp point to fight that bastard off.  One more weapon that may work and this is strictly reserved for people with experience in both hand to hand combat and fighting  with a knife.  I'm referring to using a sort of clawed gauntlets to fight off the rake.  This makes since because the Rake's weapons a his claws and teeth.  And one people experienced enough with this sort of weapon could possibly even the playing field if need be.

I also have a theory that links The Rake with the slender man.  This theory also follows the idea that the writer of the blog "Make it Count" had about constants(happy thoughts). Anyway my theory goes like this: If a persons constants are too strong or they don't take the slender man seriously, slender man send The Rake to try to mess with them and in some cases kill them.  Keep in mind that this is just a theory I'm not sure how valid it is.

I think that's all I wanted to say for tonight.

Thing didn't even wait til night time.

So not long after I made that last post I began to here the low pitched gurgling of The Rake. I viewed the fruits of my labor from my bedroom window, which happens to be right above the crawl space of my house. Anyway on with the details of what happened.  The Rake was crawling around the backyard with a strange curiosity for my mother's herb garden.  That is until something in the herb garden spooked it and it lost interest in the herb very quickly.  That's when it saw the crawlspace to my house and decided to go inside, until it got a face full of S.C.(spicy concoction I'm tired of having to write it out.)  The moment it got a whiff of the stuff it let out a painful noise. That's the only way I could describe it.  I know I'm stating the obvious, but this sound didn't sound like anything of this world.  After it got out from under the crawlspace it began to frantically remove some of the residue of the S.C. off its face and upper body.  That's around the time I made the mistake of needing to cough.  The moment I coughed it looked right at me then it glanced at the  metal and glass door to the backporch only to see one of the X's that I put up on all the doors to my house. It then looked back at me and it didn't take a genius to tell what it was feeling: Pissed beyond belief.  The Rake then let out what I could only describe as a growl and ran back to the woods.  Needless to say I was scared half-way to hell. 

Okay So I learned that the Rake is definatly sensitive to all the things I put in to that concoction.  And it seems as though putting X's on my doors seem to keep him out.  I'm still curious as to why it's deterred by such a thing.  I would recommend using the X's on the door and putting S.C. on the edges and inside of the crawlspace.  Just don't make the same mistake I did if your going to watch it and make a sound that would alert this thing to your presence.  For the time being I'm probably not going outside my house with out my machete.

Last time I said I was going to talk about how to protect oneself against the Rake.  But first I want to remind anyone dealing with the rake recently a basic rule to follow.  When Dealing with the Rake it's best not to antagonize it and better to act like nothing wrong when it's around.  Demon or not it still has the tendencies of a wild animal and just like a wild animal if it's cornered, it will fight back and the results won't be pretty.  That aside I've been thinking of a few ways to keep him out of my home.  Hopefully if all goes well these tricks will help everyone in the long run.  One of the thing I did just to play it safe was to put a bit of a spicy concoction of hot green peppers, red pepper powder, hot sauce, and finally to top it all of some wasabi.  I mix these ingredients using a blender to create a paste like substance.  This substance's scent was strong enough to clear my sinuses.  I plan on using this stuff to deter the   Rake from getting into my house through the crawl space.

I'm also planning on testing the idea of putting an X on my door to keep the rake out.  Will it work only time will tell. 
Til next time.

Stay safe

Personal encounters with the rake

One of the earliest encounters I had with the Rake happened on July 4th some where around the time of 4:32 p.m. if I was to guess.  I was just setting off some smoke bombs and testing to see if said smoke was in color.  (it wasn't)  After setting two smoke bombs off, I saw something that looked like a mangy dog. At first I jokingly thought it was the Rake then brushed it off as nothing.  Later that night around 3:00 a.m. or so I started to hear a low gurgling sound.  Not like what you'd hear from pipes, but more like an animal or something.  The Second and most recent encounter happened yesterday around 2:45 p.m. while I was mowing my families garden.  From the corner of my eye I thought I saw something hiding in the wooded area of the field. I turned my head to see what it was.  At first I couldn't believe what I saw. It was the Rake It's face, dear lord I finally understand why uncanny valley is scary.  The thing that sticks with me the most are those black eyes of his.  Needless to say it didn't take long for it to notice I was watching it and it went back into the wooded area to hide.  At first I wanted to get the hell out of there until I noticed it was still there watching me.Part of me wanted to run like hell, but I remembered what I learned from that Rake video the Rev made about this thing.  So I continued to act like I didn't see anything and continued mowing.  Truth be told I've never been more scared in my life.  I've said this once before to my good friend Miss Shady and I'll say it again now.  I don't plan on antagonizing this creature the way Maduin does to the slender man, but if that thing comes near my property with the intent to harm, I WILL DEFEND MYSELF.  For the time being if it comes near my property I'm going to set out some "treats" for it.  Until next time people.

Help for thise being hunted(sorry if this title sounds a little meh)

I'm going to say this right now.  This is not some blog that's about how I'm being menaced by a certain faceless individual.  Instead I'm being menaced by a creature known as the Rake.  For those who know nothing about what the Rake is, it's a type of strange dog like creature that has a penchant for slicing people up with it's razor sharp talons.  I'm writing this blog as both a log of my encounters with this thing and as a means of teaching people how to handle this thing.  One thing I've both been told is this thing doesn't seem to go after people unless it's antagonized.  However this is not always true and this thing has been known to attack with out reason. Me like many people who research this thing are unsure why this thing attacks but I do know one thing,  I'm not going to run.  I'm going to defend myself but I'm going to try to be smart about it.  And hopefully the people who read this blog that are being menaced by this thing can gain some form of knowledge on how to handle the situation.
Edit:  Here's a video by my friend Rev. Loon about the rake in case I was a little vague about the rake
