I just wanted to start off by saying this forum is fantastic and a great place to burn a few hours for Post-Apocalyptic fans such as myself. I've been meaning to register on the forum, but I keep forgetting. Anyway, I'll cut to the chase, I'm currently studying Creative Writing at university and my lecturer has asked us to write a short story. Naturally I want to write a Post-Apoc story .
I've always wanted to write a PA story with a supernatural monster/entity as the main antagonist. Basically, I'm not sure what form the monster should take? I don't think I want the monster to be a grosteque beast with fangs. I was thinking the monster could take a non-biological form, sorta like the Smoke Monster from LOST or Pride from Fullmetal Alchemist? I want it to be like a destructive force of nature that devours everything in its path and cannot be killed through natural means with guns, missiles and nukes.
Any ideas on what form this monster could take and its features? I would really appreciate any suggestions.

hello freind, firstly plesure to meet a fan of both PA and anime, secondly thats kind of a hard question to help with without first knowing the kind of apocalypse that your book is set after and the location of its main story. is it set in an underground colony where the residents are unaware of what lies outside of the walls? or is it a desert wasteland in the typical mad max/book of eli style where finding shelter and water is the main means of survival. personally i love the idea of a city engulfed in jungle with animals running wild, that would b ideal for a PA horror setting as there would be tight corners and alleyways all over. ignooring my lack of plot knowlage, i think the idea of some sord of old technology could be cool, like some man who has been alive since before the apocalypse happened who was a test subject for a military prototype where hid body was replaced with nanobots allowing him to dissasemble himself into a sort of mist and reassemble himself unharmed. but since seeing all of his freinds die during there operations and everyone else die during the apocalypse (which coud have been caused by the formulae or whatever he was given going viral and being rejected by most people) he went mad seeing himself as an abomination and blames himself, seeing hiself as a bringer of death and barely resembling human anymore. thats my input anyway, i think i thaught into that on e too much...
