(the 100th!) girls fighting evil: southern gothic witches
a witch ought never to be frightened in the darkest forest… she should be sure in her soul that the most terrifying thing in the forest was her.

(the brother and sister don’t know where else to go. the demons have come for them, and they need help. so they go to the little house with the bird in the window, the house of the swamp witches. they have twigs in their hair and blood on their hands, but they are kind to the children. when the demons following the children reach the house with the bird in the window, the swamp witches pull the demons down to the hell under the water.)
