Just as well she didn't want to come in and meet her child's friends. But that would be far too human for ... whatever that was.

Note to self: ask for more lurking shadow backstory sometime.

Heh ... yeah.

Precisely. This monster isn't a personality the way the others are. She is something more primal, more awareness than identity, if that makes sense. She's hard to describe.

Shadows are mothered by darkness and fathered by light.

Sure, go for it.

>>Ah. Perhaps even further than I'd thought from the human sense of mother, then.<<

She is where the shadow-spirits come from, and they know this, and they can communicate with her to a certain degree. The main difference is that she isn't reproducing herself, but creating something related with its own kind of awareness.

>>I'm not sure I'd want to meet light, either.<<

Yeah, he's probably on a similar plane. That which burns and blinds. You look at the two of them and it becomes really clear why balance is essential for survival.

Re: Well...

Suggesting we live in shadows, in the melty mushy muddy border between fire and frost.
