    The problem with creepy pasta is that they tend to go over the top.

    Hello spoopy thread! I bring you Halloween pumpkin spoopiness. Please be aware that you should not open this link at work, or anywhere you might have to explain a certain story about a Boeing engineer who was a little too into horses (or should that be the other way around?) - https://imgur.com/gallery/I1Cmfqx

    ANYTHING HALLOWEEN RELATED IS INHERENTLY SPOOKY

    even if the costume is cute or whatever it's still basically a ritual honoring the spirits and all sorts of other pagan radness and that's spooky as shit

    Is this spooky thread general enough to talk about any Halloween-related stuff, or is it necessary that all topics be spooky? I'm in the market for costume advice, but it's not spooky per se, so I want to make sure if this is the right venue first.

    @Enlong there is a dedicated Halloween thread here!

    No. I'm listening to the Creepy podcast where the dude reads Creepy Pasta and I started from the oldest one and I'm working my way up.

    when i'm feeling less lazy i might compile a list of my favorite nosleep stories. i will say that as far as longer, multi-part stories go, The Left Right Game is one of the few worthy of its length.

    I really enjoyed Penpal, and wound up buying the book to support the author.

    Fair Warning: I probably wouldn't recommend it to anyone with childhood trauma, though. A lot of it is putting together pieces of traumatic past events of the narrator.

    Proton Pack Maintenance Time:

    Now is always a good time of year to complete full checks of all pack functions before the yearly increase of calls around Halloween.

    This year I am trying to figure out how to make the speaker sound better. I either need to widen the speaker grill holes or cut that whole section of the back plate out and mount the speaker through it from the outside.

    However it could also be the speaker itself. It sounds a bit reverby when the volume is turned up.

    Also I got the smoke system working after last year's recharging incident that cause it to stop producing smoke.

    Update: I'm just making the wholes larger and not doing anything drastic. This is the first year where I haven't needed to do any actual repair work to the pack so I'm not going to mess with it right now. Maybe over the summer I'll redo the whole sound system.

    re-posting because I forgot there was a spooky thread
    I've been watching the Haunting of Hill House and my new brain pills are giving me the night terrors

    so guess who had a totally awesome night last night (not me)

    There was a slumped man with broken bones who ever so slowly made his way across my bedroom, I could hear his bone pieces grinding together

    the street lights showing a silhouette of a head and shoulders moving outside my (2nd story) window

    and then waking on my side, wrapped in my blanket, panic growing, pushing my face into the pillow as I become more and more certain that there was something behind me, thinking I can feel the bed sink under the pressure of it climbing on and looming over me

    I vote for a sealed acoustic wool-filled box behind the speaker separating it acoustically from the open volume of the inside of the pack, which would destroy the echoes that internal volume will be producing. Vibration isolation mounting the speaker will also kill transmitted resonances from the pack housing itself.

    I've had something very similar to that last one.

    I think what really sells it is that large chunks of the story are true. Most of the actual caving is real, and so is the Noise - which is what inspired the story, if I recall correctly. (I did a bunch of furious googling the first time I read it.)

    So he did actually run into a weird noise in a cave?

    It's apparently a thing with that cave.
    Nobody knows for sure, but the most likely explanation is that the sound is traffic on the interstate that runs over that part of the cave, which explains why it's variable and not constant the way running water would be. Or that's what I recall, anyway.

    If there are ghosts, they are not very intrusive. You can have a store with one in it.

    Some can mess with electricity though. Allegedly.

    Apparently, the town I live in has house that is haunted really bad.

  • Metzger MeisterMetzger Meister Registered User regular
    I think every town has that one spooky house. I bet even planned communities have ghosts. Planned ghosts.

    Do you think a ghost could get you in trouble with an HOA? Like "uh hey so this neighborhood has some pretty strict noise ordinances in place and the Robertson's heard you rattling chains and wailing well into the early hours of the morning."
