With pointed fangs I sit and wait,
With piercing force I dole out fate,
Over bloodless victims proclaiming my might,
Eternally joining in a single bite.

    You guys gotta read the whole thing – bloodless meaning its not an animal and the last line gives it away – a stapler (victims eternally joining in a single bite)

    Gargoyal. There’s no blood, fate could refer to a church or cathidrel, sitting and waiting would also work because gargoyals don’t do much of anything outside of sitting or waiting.

    I wrote the riddle. The answer is a stapler. A bat or a spider would draw blood, yet the riddle clearly states: “Over bloodless victims”.

    i think the riddle is unclear , the solution could be any number of things .. when it says over bloodless victims , that implys to me the blood has been sucked out of them .

    that part may be unclear, but who “rejoices” when they get all of the blood sucked out of them, or anyone else noting the incident in that matter? I think it’s prettyclear that stapler would best satisfy the riddle.

    we like stapler and if you made the riddle you know the answer better than us – but we liked the fork sitting next to the plate, stab the food, and join as one mouthful…
