Photo prompt round-up – Mask #writephoto

The photo for this week’s prompt is of the enigmatic Mister Fox…and for those who thought they had seen the image…or something similar before, it features on the cover of Mister Fox and the Demon Dogs, the second of the graphic novels written with Stuart France in honour of the Langsett Foxes who dance beneath the moon.

Bone-white winter gleams in the moonlight. Silent shadows hunt in the night….

The Hunter’s Moon sails above dark hills, caught in the empty fingers of the treetops. A mysterious company gathers to kindle the flames of the dance; arcane patterns of fire woven in the blackness to the beat of the drums.

Silent as ghosts in the darkness, others follow their trail, lurking in the night to watch… and wait… seeking their chance to usurp the forest throne…

Old Fox wanes with the fading year, his fur touched by the silver of frost. Can he hold his realm against the ghostly challenge of the Demon Dogs?

Yet all is not lost. They have seen it in the smoke… three magicians use their arts to breathe life into the spirit of Fox…

If you have written a piece for this week’s challenge and it does not appear below, please leave a link in the comments and I will add it to the list. Pingbacks do not always get through.

As always there were some superb contributions this week and I would like to thank  everyone who took part. I am sorry I could not reblog as many as usual while I am separated from my defunct computer, especially as once again there are new writers joining the challenge.  It was interesting to see what the image suggested to people… when in fact it shows a moment from a magical folk dance.

Please click on the links below to visit all the posts and leave a comment for the author! A new prompt will be published later today and I will reblog as many as I can through the week as they come in and all contributions will be featured in the round-up on Thursday.

Come and join in!


Knee-jerk reaction

Blind preconceptions linger

Beneath the surface

Unknown and misunderstood

Fear clouds perception’s lenses
