Re: Fear Eaters?
I'm not sure about this, but I think most spirits that you call fear-eaters would move things around or create sounds - anything out of the ordinary, because mostly humans are xenophobic. Also, I have one in or around my room, which is the attic. I used to be afraid to come up here when I was little, even if I wasn't alone. Now I still don't necessarily like being here alone, especially when the daylight is gone. I don't like daylight per se, but it does feel safer than lamp light. Thankfully, it doesn't always show itself, probably because I told it could feed off me whenever if it left my sister and mother alone.
Often enough, there's a cold draft in this room which actually seems to 'move' seperately from the blowing of the wind. And of course, there's that time I saw a shadow man. My initial reaction was fear, so I'd turned away, and when I turned back he was fading away (He'd been a very dark, nearly black gray before). I told it to stay and show itself, which it did of course. So take my advice, don't ask them to show themselves. This one seemed amused and it started to turn around, which is very weird to see. Like there are various light sources all giving a shadow to the same object, yet still a sense of motion exists in that shadow. I didn't see a face, or eyes, just a shape, yet it was easy to say when he was facing me.
In short, I don't think it was fear eater that seemed so interested in you Faite (Pleased to meet you, and the rest of you here). I think it would've been more interactive than just curiously moving about.
