Chat: Myths and monsters

One of the big appeals of Supernatural (besides the charms of the leads, of course *g*) is the use of actual myths in the storylines. And some of the best stories follow the same route, create new casefiles from old myths. So, writers, how do you best go about this? How do you research your myths or create your monsters, build up your plots? And readers, what scares you, what excites you, what makes you want to read more?

Please, folks, help me make this post an actual chat – answer each others' comments, rather than just commenting on the post, so we can get some dialogue going. It'll be way more fun that way, honest! And throw up your own questions and thoughts on the matter too - the questions in the post are just there to get things rolling.
