2007: the year i discovered my patronus

guinea-corn

i found it in a dream, in a kitchen with exposed shelving and lots of wood paneling. on the shelf sat the most unusual piece of taxidermy i had ever seen, a truly rare specimen: a guinea pig with a single horn, suspended until the end of time in mid-hop.

the plaque read: guinea-corn.

my patronus. sent to protect me, and guide me on my way.

Mine is the jackalope. It looks surprisingly like a rabbit with antlers stapled to its head - but don't be fooled. This is animal mysticism at its best.
