So I have been noticing a few people wanting to incorporate the fear mythos creatures in their vlog. Which is great! I dabbled in this myself with the series The Undecided Five. Its a lot of fun, trust me, but its also a lot of work. I'm gonna cut that research in half for you. You're welcome.
PLEASE NOTE -- I am making this very, very simple. If you want to know more, please go to my source which can be found here
. If you are interested in these fears, I suggest reading some blogs about them, which can be found in the link before.
ALSO NOTE -- I wasn't too sure where to put this, so I hope I put it in the right spot. If not, I'm very sorry.The Archange
