My ancestors,are Slavic.My heritage draws me towards our Slavic mythology,and as a child I remember being told stories about the Babaroga,a monstrous woman,almost always used to prove a point that adults are nice.
In one particular instance,a 4 year old me spent the night at a train station with my uncle who worked there,and his friends had told me stories about some sort of apparation that would come for me.
I remember clearly,that I was thoroughly scared at first.The thought of someone eating children,was horrifying.
By the end of the night,though,curiosity had gotten the better of me,and I was calling out for her to show herself,and tell me who she is,and such.
LAter on,I grew to read all those fairytales,like the Boy and Girl and the cat,not to mention,Vasilisa the Beautiful,although,I am still highly interested in working with her.
The Bony-Legged Witch,that is.Baba Yaga,her name.
HAs anyone ever tried to call on her,or travel to her chicken leg house?
