What supernatural creature are you?

So I was talking to some friends the other day and for some strange reason the conversation turned to superpowers and supernatural creatures. Now, this isn't strange for me because, as you all know, I do exclusively write about the paranormal, but my friends thought that it was fascinating to come up with their top three wish list of supernatural abilities.

Anyway, the conversation was very enlightening to say the least. So I thought I would share what I came up with as my top choice for supernatural creature with my top three supernatural ability wants based on what I've created in my own creatures over the years.

My top choice was to be a witch. I mean, I've been accused of being a witch (well, okay, I’ve been accused of being something that sounds like witch…but close enough) on many occasions. I've also been asked, quite seriously, at work, if I practice wicca. So, I figure it's the best choice for me.

1. Enchanting: I'd love to be able to enchant people into doing things my way. How much easier would life be if I didn't have to argue with the people I work with when I know something is going to work my way? I'd love to be able to take their will away...maybe not all the time, I do hate brainless twits but every once in a while it sure would save some time and hassle if I could zap a person into doing things without arguing.

2. Healing: I think it would be very handy to be able to heal myself and others. No more bandages or broken bones...headaches or pulled muscles...just a little hands on and voila...no more injury.

3. Scrying: Otherwise known as the ability to eavesdrop from a distance. How great would it be to listen in on a conversation without having to be in the room? Or to see forward or backward in time in order to settle an argument? I'd say it would be pretty cool. I can't count the number of times I've thought, "wow, I wish I were a fly on that wall." Being able to Scry would get you into that room undetected. Although, maybe sometimes you don't want to hear what others are talking about...but since I'm a gossip whore I say bring it on...I love to hear it all, even if someone does think I'm a crazy witch!

Anyway, those are my top picks. What about you? What supernatural creature would you be and what would be your top three powers?


  1. Hmmm

    I definitely agree with Scrying. I would rather know the truth than guess based on what people are willing to show the world.

    Shapeshifting. Ideally I'd be able to shift into a few things and get different perspectives on life.

    Healing usually goes with shifting, so hmmm... superspeed so I can clean like a mad-woman in half the time it normally takes LOL

  2. wow, tough choice.

    Maybe a wizard. The ability to work all kinds of magic would be fantastic. That pretty much would encompass almost all the superpowers...just cast a spell! :)

  3. Shapeshifting, but full magical changing ability. I don't want to be a werewolf, but if I were being chanced, I'd like to duck behind a van, ditch my jacket, and look like a totally different woman (or even a man) when I come out the other side.

    Teleportation. I don't spend a lot of time on the run, but that would be another good power to have when I duck behind that van. Or just to save on travel costs. ;-D

    Mind reading, so long as I can turn it off. There are times when it would be nice, but I don't REALLY want to know if my husband dreams of some superstar hottie or the things that might pass through a friend's mind that would be unforgivable if uttered aloud.

  4. I have to go with shapeshifting. It's just too cool. Along with it comes super strength and quick healing. Not too bad, I'd say.
