TftW: The Walkening.
This is a sequel to my Walken TF
story 'The Were-Walken' and takes place after the events of the story,
this also uses the Virus method as well as has vampirism related
themes - this uses elements from various vampire movies. It is also
advised you read the Walkenization scene and the mind-control scene with
Walken's voice intoning in my character's head in Christopher Walken's
voice...all of his lines when he's in Walken form should be read in
Walken's voice...as should do this part of the notes section. But be
warned, once you've started reading it...you won't be able to stop.
Lost Boys: The same rules that apply to vampires in the movie also
apply to the Walkens in this story and also the vampire rules are
brought up as well.
From Dusk Till Dawn: Similar to FDTD, this
story uses The Virus method of having people being bitten and turned
into Walkens in a similar manner, also...Nathan trying to hide his
transformation into Chris from the human characters is like how Sex
Machine tries to hide his transformation from the others.
in this story: Walkens - a race of vampiric beings with hypnotic
powers and a lust for blood and cowbell, they are known for being
boogieman types in folkloric stories humans tell to scare other humans
who behave badly into behaving properly, this species gets its name
from the fact males of this species look and sound like the real
Christopher Walken. Females are vampiress/warrior-women types known as
She-Hessians - both genders have hypnotic powers, inhuman strength and
agility, heightened senses, hypnotic blue eyes and sharpened teeth
and fingernails. A Walken leader is known in their circles as an
had been 8 months since Dr Nathan Forester had been turned into his
vampiric, bloodsucking Walkeny alter-ego under the light of the blood
moon, but yet he couldn't remember anything prior to the actual
transformation and conditioning itself, on the night of August 5th 2015,
that's when he had the dream. That night as he slept, he dreamed he
was recording an audio diary about what had happened to him the night
when he went full on Walken.
"I didn't know what came over me,
but it just felt good for some reason...I wanted to resist, but
yet...it just felt naturally for me to give in and turn into my Walkeny
alter-ego like that and to be so hypnotic and beautiful.."
"Hey! What's this?"
the recording , he looked out of the window to see someone watching
him from the front yard of his apartment - that someone was a friend of
his, and that friend had been listening in for quite a while.
"Joel...what the hell are you doing here?"
"Listening in on you and your secret."
"I don't know what you're talking about.."
"I heard all about you turning into Christopher Walken."
"What? Me? But i'm not Walken...i'm a human like you."
Then explain this...you said in your audio diary that you couldn't
help but give in because the transformation felt natural to you, and
that you could feel your 'Walken' instincts taking control of you."
"I couldn't help it really..."
"So you are him though?"
"Yes...but only at night."
"I bet you shifted to your human form to hide it from me."
really wish we could continue this conversation...but...i'm not well,
so maybe next time, okay? Because i'm really not feeling well, i've
got some...uhhh..horrible life-threatening disease or something and I am
worried it might be contagious, so i'd like it if you'd kindly leave
before I end up giving it to you by accident."
"Oh, I get it...you're trying to hide your secret from me, Walken."
panicked slightly before closing the door shut completely and sealing
the windows shut as well, now that Joel had caught onto his secret...
he had to be careful and make sure that no one else would know about his
Walkeny alter-ego. And to do that, he had to keep himself from
giving in to those Walkeny instincts...but with each passing night, it
was getting more and more difficult for him to resist. He couldn't let
anyone know that he was the Walken that had been sighted on the night
of January 26th 2015.
"Please...leave, i've got some horrible disease and I don't want you to catch it."
"Oh, I get ya Walken...have a craving for more cowbell, do you?"
"No...no...that's not what I meant...aaarrrgh."
then he started going off into a trance-like state and he instinctively
let out a low hypnotic growl before snapping out of it and covering his
mouth, knowing that this was about to get uncomfortable for him, he
decided to have a lay down. But just as he was about to rest for the
night, Joel started video-calling him trying to get him to transform,
but he hung up on him and laid himself down...but just as he was about
to lay down for a good night's rest, the full blood red moon rose from
behind the clouds.
His right hand started to shake as it started
transforming, the skintone on it paling and becoming almost vampiric
as his hand altered...becoming...more Walkeny than human, his fingers
growing longer as his knuckles became more pronounced, his fingernails
extending and sharpening to become akin to claws, pulling back the
sleeves on his nightshirt he could the same pale skintone creeping up
his arm as well, as the skin imperfections on it slowly faded away.
He panicked slightly as he tried to hide his transformed hand,
covering it behind his duvet before his eyes turned an icy blue color
and gave off a supernatural glow.
Soon - he found himself giving
in to the more bloodthirsty instincts of his alter-ego and he awoke to
go and hunt down Joel...once he hunted down Joel, his teeth sharpened
as he bit him on the nape of his neck...he growled slightly before
darting off. That was where the dream ended.
Nathan awoke from
the dream to find something really shocking...on the local news, a
report of a 'Walken' attack/sighting and of several people being turned
into 'Walkens' was being aired. He remembered a similar news report
that aired on the nights of January 27th and all the way through March.
evening...i'm Louis Ammerton and this is Darlene O'Donnelly. As you
know, our town has once again experienced a close encounter of the
Walkeny kind...and as you can see..blood is being spilled constantly
"That's right Louis, we're here in Downtown Oakendale
where the Walken has once again been sighted, and there seems to be
more than one. Tons of vampiric Christopher Walkens have been popping
up everywhere, just like on January 26th of this very year. These
Walkens seem to have an appetite for human blood."
"We advise all
people watching at home to keep yourselves safe from this onslaught.
We still haven't found out who the elusive Walken is and why he is
turning people but it could be anyone."
Joel and the others were
making a barricade to keep out the Walkens when Nathan made his way over
to where they were, he looked at them for a few seconds before
politely going over to them and asking:
"Excuse me guys...but what are you building over there? Some kind of bonfire?"
"Actually, we're trying to keep out the 'Walken' and his newly turned army of Walkens."
"What do you mean by that?"
Walken has been sighted yet again and this time...he's brought his
friends along....a whole army of them, sharp pointed teeth and all. And
they're after us..we better be careful out there. We don't want the
Walkens getting in."
"You guys don't really believe that stupid Walken nonsense, do you?"
"Nathan...this isn't nonsense...it's real, we've all seen him."
"Yeah right, in your dreams."
try Nathan, but we all know you know enough about the Walken to help
us here - i've been told you're a Walkenologist and have dealt with
these creatures personally, so I think you should be able to help us -
knowing that you know so much about Walkens and all."
"Well...yeah I do, but I don't think it's a good idea."
"Because..well, the Walken might be able to find you more easily."
"There's no way that Walken is getting in."
- like vampires, Walkens cannot come into your house unless you
invite them. Then again...if a Walken came into my house i'd probably
invite him anyway, because why the hell not?"
"Of course you would know that...you're probably one of them."
"What? Me? I'm not a Walken, i'm a human...believe me."
was starting to get a bit uneasy, he backed away a few times before
the back door was opened by another one of Nathan's friends - Ricky,
Ricky looked like he had gotten into something quite frightful. It had
seemed that he had encountered several Walkens and yet he hadn't been
"What's going on here? I keep seeing Christopher Walken everywhere."
tell you what's going on here. We've got a bunch of Walkens out there
trying to get in here and suck our fucking blood. That's it. Plain and
simple. I don't want to hear anything about 'I don't believe in
Walkens' because I don't fucking believe in Walkens but I believe in my
own two eyes and what I saw is fucking Walkens."
"But I thought this barricade was supposed to keep them out."
"Looks like one of them must have gotten in."
even more uneasy than ever, he decided to make a dash for it to make
sure that he didn't arouse suspicion within the group of friends. At
this rate, it was getting hard for him to hide his Walkeny secret from
them. He was about to make another dash for it when the blood red full
moon appeared from behind the clouds and he started feeling...not quite
"Nathan? Are you okay?"
"You're acting a bit weirder than usual."
"I just don't feel too well..."
"But you were fine earlier..."
"Must be a bug that's going around."
"If you say so...at least you're not one of those Walkens..."
friend Thomas approached the center of the room and reminiscing and
having a Nam flashback moment, and that's when it started happening.
Just as he was listening to the story, all of the sound in the
background was drained out completely and he could hear a cover of Don't
Fear The Reaper playing in his head...along with a familiar voice, the
low, haunting, hypnotic intoning voice of Christopher Walken himself.
at those humans...they don't suspect a thing. They're too busy trying
to keep my army out, not knowing that you - my friend are one of them
and that any minute...you could let your true Walkeny form out and make
quick work out of them."
"Chris...what are you doing here?"
"I think you know damn well what i'm doing here..."
"Look, if this is about that Walken sighting, I had nothing to do with it."
"Oh, but you did...after all...you're my Walken....Christopher."
"My name is not Christopher, it's Nathan.."
"Don't you remember?"
"The night your Walkeny side emerged...the night of January 26th."
"Well...I...guess so, but I don't remember much."
But surely you remember being hypnotized and turned...and being ever
so blissfully entranced as your humanity faded and your Walkeny side
slowly took over you...you were so Walkeny.."
don't know that you are the Walken...and how much you enjoyed it when
you turned...and how much you loved being so Walkeny...all that blood
and cowbell - all those hypnotic powers...your ability to control a
whole Walken army...."
"I know but that's why i'm trying to hide it from them."
"But why hide it from them? Are you afraid they will kill you?"
"But Christopher, you are the hunter here...they're your prey, remember?"
"Prey? No...they're my friends...I wouldn't..."
"Oh but you would, you're such a fierce and bloodthirsty Walken..."
"I'm not a Walken, i'm human..."
"You won't be for long...just relax and listen to my voice."
"Oh no you don't."
"And why not?"
"I'm not going to go Walken here - my friends are watching!"
"Shhhh...relax and obey."
though Walken wasn't anywhere to be found, he could still sense his
presence...he could hear Walken calling to him with his hypnotic
signature voice, beckoning him, intoning inside his mind - sending
hypnotic suggestions into his mind. He tried to block them out, but
Walken quickly out-powered him.
As he was hearing these
suggestions intone in his mind, his teeth slowly started to lengthen
and sharpen as his canines extended to become akin to fangs, while the
rest of his teeth developed sharp points and became Hessian-like, he
covered his mouth with his right hand only for the skin on it to turn
pale as his hand shifted to become Walken-like, in the process his
fingers extended in length to become longer as his knuckles became more
pronounced and his fingernails extended and sharpened...he covered it up
with his left hand, but it only succeeded in having his left hand
change as well. His brief transformation wore off for a while and he
morphed back to normal before trying to shake off the effects of the
"I won't let you do this."
"Oh...but you know you love it, you love being me...you love the Walken side..."
"Oh yes you do, you love being Walkeny..."
but look at those humans...I bet you're thinking that their blood
would taste delicious...I bet you'd love to bite them...they'd make
great Walkens too. Let's bite them and turn them all into Walkens.."
"No, those people are my friends."
"Friends? They look more like prey to me."
"Leave them alone, Walken."
panted several times as he tried to prevent his transformation into his
Walkeny alter-ego from happening, he really was hoping it wouldn't
happen now...not with all his friends watching, but Walken wasn't
having any of this. He was going to bring the Walkeny side out of him
no matter what and he could be pretty damn persuasive. He tried to
fight it, but alas...he found himself losing his ability to think
straight as he looked at the blood red moon as he clutched his stomach.
warning, he started instinctively growling and hissing in a vampiric
manner as he began to lose control, as the Walken side started to take
control of him, human thoughts and traits slowly fading into oblivion
as his mind drastically altered, all he could think about was obeying
Walken, he began to drift off into a deeper trance-like state as he
felt himself becoming less human with each turn.
slowly but surely began to drain itself of its normal color as it paled,
becoming ghostly and vampiric as well as well...Walken-like, the
skintone started at his arms which were elongating and growing longer as
his fingers extended, his fingernails lengthened and sharpened as his
knuckles became more pronounced. From what his team mates could see,
they could see he had Walken-like arms and hands and a very pale
He growled several more times as his clothing peeled
away before reforming into black dust clouds that melded together into a
black and grey suit with a spider-insignia on it, his chest and torso
slimmed down as did his stomach, his back slimming down as well. In
the process his legs elongated to become Walken-like along with his
feet, as his boots reformed into a pair of gothic ones with a Hessian
It began to feel that to him, everything around him was
shrinking but that was only because he was elevating to become much
taller in height to about 6'ft, which was Walken's height as his
shoulders slimmed down, as his hair slowly turned from its normal
brownish color to sandy brown and developed the texture and style of
His forehead elevated itself higher up as his
eyebrows thinned and turned sandy brown as well, the pale skintone now
clearly becoming noticeable on his face as his eyes turned from hazel
brown to icy blue, in the process they became narrower and spread out -
to give them a sunken, menacing look. His nose altered in shape
until it looked very Walkeny as well, his ears stretching to become
slightly pointed at the tips.
He licked his lips as they slowly
contorted into a more crescentian shape, altering his mouth shape to be
more Walkeny as the tips of his mouth became pointed, his cheekbones
sharply became more pronounced as his cheeks themselves became slightly
sunken, in the process his chin narrowed a bit as his facial structure
and shape altered to become more brachy/mesoian, making his facial
features morph and contort until they resembled Walken's own.
Walkeny instincts and mindset began to take over full-force as he
growled and licked his lips at the thought of draining the blood out of
his former team-mates, after all- they were just a bunch of
humans...and to a Walken, human blood was absolutely delicious...and
he couldn't wait to bite each and every one of them and turn them into
Walkens as well.
Joel staggered back in shock as he saw Nathan
transforming, he could barely recognize him - the fact Nathan looked
more like Christopher Walken was definitely an alarming sight for him,
what was more alarming though was the way he was licking his lips and
hissing in a vampiric manner as his expression contorted itself into a
But the most alarming part of all came
in two forms, the first was when his voice started to deepen and grow
lower, altering and warping, harmonizing and transforming until it
matched his appearance, not only making him look like Walken but also
sounding like him, complete with the vocal tone, speech patterns and
hypnotic and enticing way of speaking as well as the Walken accent and
inflections. The second alarming change after that was his teeth,
as his canines extended as they lengthened and sharpened, becoming
akin to vampiric fangs while the rest of his teeth became pointed and
With a loud, fierce Hessian-like roar - the
transformation was completed and in place of the human known as Nathan,
there stood a fierce, but oddly entrancing Walken...the new Walken let
out a couple of satisfactory growls as new thoughts and memories took
over...he no longer could be called Nathan anymore. Yes, he remembered
that he was Christopher Walken now...yes, Christopher...what a fine
name for a young Walken.
"Nathan...is that you?"
"I don't know who that is...My name is Christopher. But you humans may call me Chris."
"The Walkens got to you too? But how? I mean none of the other Walkens got in."
human....I wasn't bitten or scratched by one of them. Because I
already am a Walken. I was never bitten. No...how I became what I am
now, is much different...in fact.."
"That's impossible...how on earth did that happen?"
been a Walken this entire time...you see, and I was hypnotized and
turned on that blood moon night and I turned into the Walken you see
before you - i've always been a Walken."
"But we thought you were human..."
I don't remember being human, but I do remember how good it felt to
transform into this form of mine on that full blood moon night and how
much I enjoyed drinking blood and serving the real Walken as his loyal
"You're an alpha Walken?"
"Oh yes...and I am simply carrying out my master's orders."
a group of humans to hypnotize, bite/scratch, drain them of their
blood and turn them into Walkens and She-Hessians for his army -
starting with YOU..I bet your blood would taste delicious."
"You wouldn't bite me now, would you? I'm one of your friends."
"I view you as prey more than a friend..."
hissed and snarled at Joel and the others before lunging with inhuman
agility towards Damon - Ricky's friend and sinking his sharp teeth into
his neck, biting him and draining him of his blood before making his
way towards Joel. Joel tried to stop Chris from attacking Damon but
it was too late. Within seconds, Damon was turned into a Walken just
Ricky felt a chilling sensation run down his neck as
Chris's Walken-like hands and fingers crawled up his back and up onto
his shoulders, and without warning - the alpha Walken reached from
behind and went straight for his neck...sinking his sharp fangs and
Hessian-like teeth into it and causing blood to drip from it, he licked
the blood up before Ricky let out a loud piercing yell of pain.
"YOU BIT ME! YOU FUCKING BIT ME!"
"What are you going to do about it?"
the alpha Walken snarled as Ricky tried to fight him, but before
knocking Ricky down onto the ground and making quick work of the other
team-mates. One by one, the other team-mates were turned into Walkens
just like him. The new Walkens snarled and hissed as they glared at
"This isn't going to be good..."
a short matter of minutes the barricade that was keeping the Walkens
out broke apart as a whole army of Walkens burst through it, and when
Joel turned to see if Ricky was okay...he was met with shock when he saw
Ricky had also transformed into a Walken as well, even Ricky's best
friends had been Walkenized and there was nothing Joel here could do
about it. He was now surrounded by Walkens and the Walkens were
"Hey Joel...guess what?"
"I've got a fever...and the only prescription is YOUR BLOOD, followed by more cowbell!"
"Stay away from me."
"Don't you worry...I won't hurt you...."
"Of course not...I have something special planned for you."
"And what that might be?"
"If you want to find out, you'll have to try and catch me first..."
what Joel would have said if he didn't notice that Chris and the other
Walkens were already making their escapes, and so with that Chris and
the other Walkens all escaped into the night to go and hunt for more
humans and also for more cowbell. Luckily there were still some
survivors left over from the encounter with Joel being one of them, but
for the others it was already too late.
As for what happened
later, the Walkens ruled the night and had a bloodfeast with plenty of
cowbell and as for Chris the alpha Walken - the real Christopher
Walken was proud of him and of his Walkeny prowess. The night belonged
to the Walkens and their master and now...so do all the other nights.
try as you might there is no stopping the Walken infestation from
happening, Walkens are everywhere and they want your blood, and once
you get bitten by a Walken - you'll become one yourself. And it won't
be long until you start craving the taste of human blood and more
cowbell. But then again...maybe you've already been turned and you
don't realize it...or maybe you've been bitten by one and are starting to turn.
the case, oh well...don't say I didn't warn you. The Walken knows
these things you know, he knows a fellow Walken when he sees and hears
one. Don't you worry though, after all - it's a just a story,
there's nothing to be afraid of...except for those several pairs of
hypnotic glowing blue eyes waiting for you and leering at you from
within the darkness that is.
Sweet dreams, dear human
friends...sleep tight, and don't let the Walkens bite...or, do..it's
up to you really, but I definitely do suggest letting the Walken bite
you. After all, it won't hurt that much. Sweet dreams everyone,
and remember to look out for Walkens...you might never know when they're
going to strike next.
