Preptober Prompts Day 7 – 2019
Virilia doesn’t have any music-related superstitions (that I’m aware of). However, in Teraco violins are considered cursed because they’re such a common instrument of the Harlequins. It’s believed that violin music always heralds a group of Harlequins (which is kind of true, now that these superstitions have made Harlequins the only people to play violins…); that touching a violin brings bad luck; and that playing a violin will actually turn you into a Harlequin, which involves your face falling off and leaving behind a blank mask with dark eyes. (Can’t imagine why beings with that face as a default would be considered ill luck…) So yeah, violins are pretty scarce in Teraco. ;P
Does your world have any music-based superstitions?
Today is my last day of hosting; tomorrow begins week 2, which will be hosted by Julia of Lit Aflame, over on her Twitter! Be sure to follow her! And for those of you without Twitter/social media, I’ll be posting her prompts here on the blog, though I won’t be sharing my answers until the end of the week.
If you’d like to be one of the bonus hosts during the last three days of October, submit a prompt below! You’ll get your own fancy graphic, and if you have a blog then you’ll get to host your prompt and have your blog shared on my social media. All that’s required to enter is the submission of a music-themed prep prompt, but participating in and sharing the event will better the chances of your prompt being chosen.

As a violin player, this is sad 😞😛 but an interesting superstition! I’ve been enjoying hearing more about your world!
Ooh, that’s cool! I’ve always enjoyed violin, but never learned to play.
Thank you! It’s been fun to dig into it and share! ^-^
I haven’t played for awhile now, but it is a nice instrument ^-^
I’m glad! ^-^
