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.
 Until next time.

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.

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
