Halloween Prep: Compiled Fear in One Easy Entry

Linkies, because I feel if I have to be scared, it should be shared.

sf_drama's latest OTT on scary shit that's scary, complete with links, youtubes, and pictures. Obviously, I'm not reading a lot of this until I am safely in my cubicle with artifical lights glaring down at me, but you know, go for it!

SFD's creepypasta tag for added creepy.

Recs: Fiction tag I use for hypertext stories, etc, but hey, in honor of Halloween, I'll relink what makes me not sleep, eh?

Hypertext Fiction

Ted's Caving Page
Dionaea House (all links to this hypertext in my entry here.)
Indian Lake Project

Fiction (Multi-Player, also RP)

SCP Foundation - okay, I rec this a lot, because this is seriously cracky fun, and can be done in bites instead of single-sitting. It's a lot of creepy but it's also a lot of neat, especially if you know your urban legends and your fairy tales and you recognize what they're describing before there's a name. They pull from several cultures of monsters and beings, but the really fucked-up stuff is honestly the goddamn artifacts. It makes you really stare at your breakfast cereal.

Keep in mind that the individual SCPs also sometimes have attached fiction, experiment logs, and some of the personnel have logs too, which can make it just that more fun, since there's a lot of overlap in some and some stories can be told entirely by piecing several SCP reports together. Which I did have a color-coded chart for SCP-808's thing, why do you ask?

Fiction (Multiple Author, etc) and Other

Creepypasta - the center of the bite size terror thing. They're hit or miss for a lot of people, but trust me when I say, the ones that seem dumbest on first read put at least three people under the table in terror. Collectively they hit a range of terror.

Candle Cove - related to Creepypasta, but a thing all by its lonesome. It's in essence a very neat crossover of creepypasta and ichorfalls people (apparently from person on /x/ who loved the original story and expanded to combine the original textual with the media).

Ichor Falls - sort of new to me. Origin of Candle Cove text version, but there's other stuff there as well.

The Bad, Scary Place - it was recced on sfd, thread link here. I am checking it tomorrow.
