Spooky month is upon us once again, so let’s start the week with something truly terrifying: Twitter.

Actually, one of the more delightful corners of that hellsite is the inspiration for this week: Weird Medieval Guys, @WeirdMedieval, who posts drawings of Monsters as drawn by monks and scribes (and also the occasional Bosch close-up). (Some images probably NSFW, spoiler them if you chose one of those.) Your task this week is to select one of these tweets, put it in your sign-up post, and write a story inspired by that monster. If you can't decide or don't want to venture into Twitter, ask and I'll fetch you one.

You aren't limited to horror; any genre is fine, so long as there is a monster in it. All the usual exclusions apply, no fanfics, erotica, gdocs, etc.

Word count is 1066 words, but if you post two crits of stories from weeks you didn't judge in the thread before sign-ups close it's 1485 instead.
