As part of my ongoing attempt to figure my way out of my writer’s block, I’ve started looking at prompt generators and hoping the more ridiculous ones would catch on. “Why don’t you write something about… magical… um, uh… cats,” I told myself in desperation. This seemed like a good idea until about three seconds later, when I remembered that a ton of people, even some of my favorite authors, had already done this. At least I got something out of it—I dug up an old book that I hadn’t reread in years. The Book of Night with Moon is about magical cats, but to my surprise, it was a lot more adult than I remembered it being.
Trigger warning for mentions of animal cruelty after the jump.
