About Ashley Abercrombie

I'm Mystic Investigations Chief Cryptozoologist. I became interested in Cryptids when I found out my missing father was in fact a zombie. A pre-zombie who fathered me while he was infected with the paranormal zombification virus. Now I'm some how a zombie-human hybrid. Although I look perfectly normal, and live a mostly normal life. Well except for the fact that I can fake being dead, and can go a long time without breathing oxygen. My blood holds the key to curing the zombie scourge that infests our paranormal planet.

Do Zombies Ever Sleep?

zombie-asleepTechnically Zombies don’t sleep nor do they need to sleep since they’re dead.  However a zombie horde will cease mindless movement after a certain amount of time without spotting, or smelling any human, or animal prey. Plausibly due to the zombie virus weakening without sustenance. It then goes into a state of temporary stasis. They will remain standing still with their heads hanging down until something disturbs them. Zombies that wander off alone will eventually collapse, and appear truly dead if no prey or other zombies are seen after a period of time. However they’ll pop back up again the minute they smell or hear any humans, animals, or zombies.  Sometimes weather conditions including a brisk wind will get them re-animated.  Never assume that a motionless zombie lying on the ground is harmless. Destroy the brain, and ask questions later.

If faced with a natural or artificial obstacle, such as a fence, they will continue to move against it if prey is on the other side. Within hours they will cease movement if unsuccessful in conquering said obstacle. Once the object of their fascination is gone they will turn left or right, or all the way around to stagger back where they came from. Without any prey to guide them the most common direction is to turn left for reasons unknown. Clearly there is no zombie horde leader so it is unknown what guides their travel when no evidence of human prey, or even interesting smells exist. We do know that they tend to follow the path of least resistance.

On a related note I’m Mystic Investigations half zombie Cryptozoologist Ashley Abercrombie. Commonly a Zombie-Human Hybrid is known as a Demi-Zombie. I personally only sleep 3-4 hours a night.  However I’ve gone a week with only 2 hours of sleep per night. Clearly that’s all my human half needs despite the average adult requiring 7-8 hours of sleep on a nightly basis. I’ve been told that indulging in my craving for human flesh would greatly eliminate my need for sleep but I refuse to give in to my dark zombie desires! You can find short stories featuring me here.

Is Simple Mind Over Matter The Cure For Vampirism?

For reasons not fully understood by vampires nor human cryptozoologists, approximately 50% of Vampires who acquire temporary amnesia believe they’re human.  Within that belief a physical reality forms, and they display Human characteristics.  They no longer spontaneously combust in holy sunlight, find religious artifacts repellant, nor have a craving for blood.  These vampire enigmas appear to be human in every way.  They eat food, sleep, have no special supernatural abilities, and even their demonic evil fades away as well.  However the handful who could be studied still had no heartbeat, didn’t breath, and were still technically members of the living dead. Samples of their DNA proved they still had the normal demonic based vampire genes.  Although the DNA was inexplicably dormant. In essence creating a new latent vampire neither truly human nor vampire.

Our very own Drake Alexander was blown up in an extraterrestrial vessel in 2011, and had amnesia while making his way around Kentucky. Unfortunately such a condition in a vampire is merely caused by a massive brain injury, and all super immortals eventually heal regaining their memory via metaphysical means.  If they’re eating food instead of blood the healing process takes substantially longer.  Rather than days their odd human like state could go on for many months.  Of course any vampire telling them who they are, or hypnotically mesmerizing them snaps the amnesia victim right out of it!  Regrettably such hypnosis on a standard vampire for the opposite purpose doesn’t cause them to enter the same unique latent state.  They can be tricked into thinking they’re human until they come across sunlight, or a human whose blood they will always immediately lust for!

Despite this paranormal researchers continue to study this as a potential starting point for a vampire virus cure.  The demonic virus itself is unique in that a ritual must take place between sire, and vampire potential to activate the vampirism.  So some manner of magic is involved.  The only magic the average vampire can perform. Thankfully you can’t simply catch the vampire virus like the easily spread Zombie virus.  The amnesia factor, along with hypnosis, doesn’t work on other supernatural beings such as Werewolves with their Lycanthrope Virus.  They still turn into to hairy horrors in the full Moon even with memory loss.  In addition other demon based beings like Demi-Demons don’t change when they have memory loss.  Perhaps there is a fine line between human, and vampire that can be skirted under extreme situations?  Even a relationship with the Placebo Effect seen in humans.

The Role Of Split Personality Disorder In Vampire Physiology
Another interesting aspect of mind over matter is the ability of some humans with split personalities, or Dissociative Identity Disorder, to maintain their humanity in their human personas.  At least 25% of the time humans with DID aren’t cured of their mental illness via the wondrous yet dark vampire virus.  When they shift to their human identities they show no signs of being a vampire, and are human in every observable way.  They walk freely in sunlight, eat garlic, wear silver jewelry, and grip crucifixes with ease! Unlike the amnesia stricken vampires the split personality vampires are technically not living dead under metaphysical medical scrutiny. Demonic DNA is still latently present when in their human personas but they have a heartbeat, breath oxygen, possess functional internal organs, and pass a standard medical exam as a human in normal health.  Attempts to cure the mental disorder, and unify the personalities into one human form have failed every time. The vampire always wins in the end!  Just as the vampire persona emerges when an enticing blood supply situation presents itself!  Often their Sires will cure the disorder by simply physically killing each persona by a method not lethal to a vampire.  Usually draining the person of their blood which is in fact human for each distinct personality.  Even after being drained the next persona emerges, and the blood supply is miraculously replenished!  Is this the power of the human soul working in conjunction with the awesome raw energy of the supernatural vampire?

Supernatural Blood Cures For Vampirism
There have been fabled ancient cures for vampirism for countless ages but none have panned out. Often complicated magical rituals involving extremely hard to obtain substances that must be administered at some appointed time or during a key celestial event.  That being said there are rumors, and some evidence of certain types of paranormal blood reversing vampirism that either turn them into a human, or into another supernatural entity temporarily, or permanently.  The permeant solutions include Angel blood which is said to revert a good vampire to human form but will kill an evil one instantly!  Pure demon blood will eventually transform a vampire into a full demon.  Genie blood naturally turns them into a Genie that is instantly locked into the nearest bottle, or lamp. Earthly God or Goddess blood is rumored to either temporarily, or permanently turn them into a God!  Reverse Vampire, aka Sol Vampires, blood could possibly cause a full reversion to a human state.  Of course it’s beyond rare a vampire would run across any of these beings in biological form!

The Female Vampire Pregnancy Cure
Prego VampOnly first generation pure breed vampires can get pregnant by another of their kind for the most part.  However there is a legend that states if a vampire manages to become pregnant by a human then their body would have no choice but to become human in order to support the growing baby.  There is a specific supernatural ritual required to supposedly accomplish this, and in the end the human male must be sacrificed by draining him completely of blood.  Blood the female would consume completely!  The male in question must be a pure virgin of mind, body, and soul implying someone who’s committed no moral offenses. The insemination must occur at the highest point anywhere within the zone of a complete solar eclipse.  In addition the female vampire looking to get pregnant must have previously drank some of the father to be’s blood during the last Halloween Blood Moon.  Once pregnant the mother must carry the baby to term, and have a successful birth otherwise her humanity will be reversed.  Should the child die after birth then the Mother would spontaneously combust into unholy fire, and turn to ash as a normal vampire would when extinguished. Said miracle child would be a non-supernatural Immortal, and supposedly have blood that could permanently cure any vampire.  Naturally he or she would be an active target for vampire royalty who would see the child as a threat to their very existence!  There is no indication of such a child in the official secret supernatural record dating back to the dawn of civilization!

There is also a complicated cure for both male, and females involving a total solar eclipse. You find the details here.

What Is Zoopathy?

What Is Faunapathy?

Zoopathic ControlZoopathy, also called Faunapathy, is a psionic super power that grants one the ability to communicate telepathically with animals. Although the lowest end of Zoopathy is simple animal empathy, or the feeling of an animal’s emotional state.  The next level of advancement would be to transmit emotions to the animal.  This creates a bond with the animal that may, or may not, allow for some level of control over the creature.  Mid level Faunapathic powers entail reading an animal’s mind, and translating it into something understood by humans.  Then sending simple human thoughts to animals in a format they can comprehend.

Advanced users can carry on complete mental, or voice conversations which is also called Zoolingualism.  Conversations are of course limited by the animals intelligence, and their natural vocal linguistic abilities.  Rare amazing individuals with complete Zoolingualism would be able to carry out real intelligent human conversations with animals both mentally, and vocally.  This is due to having the ability to temporarily increase the animal’s intelligence, and even their physical vocal cords in some cases.  Somewhat like an advanced computer interfacing with a primitive one in order to carry out a complex task upon the inferior system.  Once the interface of the Omnilingualist has ceased the animal loses his new found understanding of the world. Interestingly Zoolingualism is a sub-power of Omnilingualism which in turn is a power high level Gods possess. Most notably by the Omniverse God.

Extremely advanced Zoopathy can result in hypnotic mind control that compels one or more animals to do the power users bidding.  In the wrong hands this can be an extremely dangerous weapon when using the animal as an attack tool.  In the right hands animal attacks can be halted to save lives. Zoopathic masters may direct huge herds of animals across great expanses with the mere will of their minds!  Some say successful Native American tribes often had a Faunapathic in their midst. One who could direct bison in their direction for use as food, clothing, and shelter.

Faunapathy can be limited to one, or more species for some while others can handle just Faunapathy Powerabout every animal on Earth! Those who can communicate with more advanced species, such as dolphins, and gorilla’s, will begin to manifest the ability to utilize their powers on the minds of human beings to a limited extent.  Humans being the most advanced animal on Earth.  Although generally Zoopathy is limited to less complex minds, and most don’t advance to human empathy, telepathy, or mind control.  In addition, depending on the level of one’s Zoopathic powers, they may only be able to communicate, or control, one animal at a time. Highly advanced users can handle a large herd, or pack of beasts depending on the animal’s mental state of peace, or anger. Angry animals are always harder to manage whether by normal human hands, or those wielding wondrous psychic powers!

The highest degrees of Zoopathy are usually only seen in supernatural creatures such as Gods, Vampires, Mermaids, etc.  Mystic Investigations very own Rebecca Abernathy is a Demi-Mermaid with Faunapathic abilities.  When it comes to sea animals she has varying degrees of communication, and mind control.  With all other animals she has some level of empathetic powers, and can often exude a calming effect on them.  Due to Mermaids having the ability to communicate telepathically with two of the top 10 smartest animals, Octopus & Dolphins, they can have some level of hypnotic hold on humans as well.
