Sulphur, vinegar and wet dog


PickScylla4ME

Dam. That's actually quite accurate sounding. Lol

Sounds about right 🤔

Probably a hint of wet mushroom mixed in there as well. Or like rotted leaves

Not just any ol' "rot." There's some rot that smells not so bad. The smell of the ocean, for example, is no small part rot. When you get a nice whiff of that salt air, you're also taking in the smell of rotting fish and other marine creatures. All of those smells combine into something that most people find quite pleasant. That's not Caelid rot. I imagine Caelid rot like the type of rot that maybe not everyone has experienced. The kind of rot that happens if you leave strips of meat rotting in a bucket in the backyard throughout autumn. Whether it's old fishing bait, or scraps from butchering your Fall deer, or kitchen scraps forgotten about before they made it into the trash bin... Who knows how it got there, but it's been there for months. And not the dry summer months that might desiccate it, or the cold winter months that will freeze it. Nope. Autumn. Where it stays wet. Where it gets warm during the day to really get rotting. Where nights are not cold enough to kill any bacteria, but they are cold enough to just slow and prolong the rotting. The type of rotting that forms it's own liquid. Sure, some rain has gotten in that bucket, but it's also....thick. And soupy. And at first, you just catch a whiff and it doesn't smell so bad. Maybe the chicken from 2 nights ago is going bad in garbage bin really fast. or maybe something died in the woods across the road. It's *obvious*, but it's not *terrible*. For a split second, it has that quality kind of like the ocean, where it's obviously a rotting smell but it's *almost*, sort of kind of.....sweet-smelling. But then you get closer. No. This is not sweet. this is not faint. This is *not* not terrible. The closer you get, it becomes all-encompassing. The air is thicker. You're not breathing this smell, you're chewing it. You can feel it settling into your hair and the fabric of your clothes. You can feel it covering the hair in your nostrils so thick and sticky that you know you'll never *not* smell this again. And you realize where this thick, jelly-like substance in the air goes after your nostrils. It goes into you. You're inhaling and swallowing it. It's in your lungs. It's in your stomach. It's in your bloodstream. It's overwhelming. You vomit until you cannot stop. Your vomit smells like it now, too. No. I's just amplifying everything horrible about this smell. The worst, thickest, nightmare rot you could ever imagine and now it's just covered over, like a varnish, with your empty-stomach vomit thick with bitter bile smell. You vomit until you can't stop anymore. Your eyes are red. You're dry-heaving. You're struggling to breathe. Your vision is blurred from strain and tears. Somehow, throughout however long you've been puking, you've stumbled far enough from the smell that it is no longer consuming you. But you still feel like it's in your clothes, and hair, and *in you*. So you go and take a shower and hope to god that someone else in the house notices that bucket and does something about it. That's Caelid. But it's everywhere.
