My Bronze Age Look-alike / A Bit Spooky!

OMG! My Bronze Age double “AVA” buried in Scotland 3,700 years ago. Reconstruction from a Bell-Beaker Culture burial. Her face is a bit more square, but JEEZ! It’s a bit unnerving.

  1. Doppelganger-> double/twin + goer/traveler.

    That term is quite useful in a (fictional) context, to wit: if a sufficiently-initiated ***witch*** knows the correct ‘chants and curses’, then he or she can cause a ‘twin-walker’ to persist after physical death. (More or less a haunting spirit…)

    Of course, if you’re a ‘marked’ person, that kind of witch is not merely your enemy -it’s also someone you NEED to kill ***entirely*** -and of course, you’ll be the only one ***able*** to do so.

    It’s altogether odd that I wrote much of the initial rough draft (of the whole series) prior to being diagnosed in 2007-8. It rings true to its depiction of the essential characteristics of my experience of being ‘that thing which must not be’ (according to Normdom, anyway)
