Poll (useful one).

I'm facing the rather daunting task of writing a millennia-old foe for my Paxverse characters that is supposed to encompass everything sentience fears, "a vast, incomprehensible darkness, uncaring of ships or weapons, bent only on devouring everything it touched," something that originated on another world even further back than the mythos of the Paxverse goes (about ten thousand years), that basically swallowed an entire empire and almost consumed a few others. I want it to be universally scary, though, so I need some information: tell me what scares you. It doesn't have to be specific; generalities will do. But it should be the most basic thing you can think of, as unreasonable as possible. Fire away.

When I was little I was afraid of the sound of sirens. They never comforted me. I still to this day cover my ears in hopes that the sound will leave. Does that help?

Spiders. Loneliness. Being forgotten. I suppose only the spider thing is irrational, evil little devils.

I used to have this reoccuring dream. I never entirely remember what happens, but I remember the feelings it brought out. I'd wake up hardly able to breathe feeling like my guts were clenched in a fist. All I could ever recall about it is that feeling of mixed fear and terrible guilt and the fact that somehow in the dream I had been responsible for the destruction of the entire planet.

So yeah. I guess I fear that I'll be responsible for earth's destruction. That and jerky-face bullies I guess.
