Challenge #03686-J033: Magical Awakening

They lived in a simple apartment building in the middle of a large, busy, city. They'd always been considered a bit of an oddball, and loved books on fantasy. Then came that fateful evening, they did something they didn't think was possible, to save a kid from injury, and an individual who seemed old and wise, and yet youthful in appearance, came to them, to explain that they, in this modern world, possessed something the modern world tended to eschew.

But... I did it.

“But it’s been in my family for generations. My great-great-great-great-great grandmother paid three guineas for it.”

“I’m sorry, but your great-great-great-great-great grandmother was duped. This is a genuine fake. It was forged at the time she purchased it. See this shade of green?

Challenge #00775 - B044: Muffin

Turns out some incubi or succubi do just as well - if not better - on platonic love than sexual.
Cue making covert bargains with children - the ‘cubi take the form of a stuffed toy, often creeping into the toy pile before the child can even walk, and become a beloved item. In return they keep the child safe from any other creepy crawlies that might be lurking. Some take up residence in nurseries and schools, the softest, best calm-down toys
