Founder, Producer & Executive Arbiter of the annual Wicked Witch of the Year Award
I can’t say I am surprised. For at least the last decade and a half Hydra has been a constant contributor within the ranks of The Infernal Empire . Despite my early onset I am not getting up and pulling a file, I am pretty sure she has been nominated most years, and her fan mail is pretty epic.
This award, voted by members reflects what I have read through the years. I could and have waxed lofty about Hydra’s multitude of artistic and literary gifts, but I’d like to touch on what makes her truly rare, truly unique.
She is a spectacular friend. I’m not talking about with me, in fact, although we are warmly friendly, we’ve not had the opportunity to get close. Instead I am talking about members who feel utterly connected to her, who rely on her council, and want her approval. She is trusted by the strongest people when they are the most vulnerable, and she maintains those relationships, they are real. How many of us have, let alone are, friends like that?
So, to me, it makes perfect sense that Hydra was voted by Undercroft members as their choice.

Life Outside the BoxWherein the Wicked Witch Confesses that she Neither Cares for nor Understands "Normal" People.
Or Maybe They Just Suck?
Regular listeners, old friends, and readers of mine know that with the exceptions of dealing with family and Church of Satan functions I haven't been social/out and about for almost a decade. That changed in July when I determined that being sick and housebound was about as much fun as a lye douche. My Magister was thrilled to introduce me to new friends, and we have had a lot of fun. I've made some truly valuable acquaintances , and I look forward to expanding those into true friendships. I'm excited about life. I'm motivated.
Still, it is hard, when dealing with normal folk, to forget why I isolated myself to begin with. I have long fought against the idea that anyone's workplace, social group, bar scene, or team somehow has more "drama" than any other. My experience is that if there a…
