Story Synopsis

The pasta takes the form of a forum discussion. Things begin fairly innocuously — Skyshale033 mentions a strange local television programme from the early '70s called Candle Cove. However, as more users begin to recall details of the show, the story takes a dark turn. People remember strange episodes, which seem completely inappropriate for childrens' broadcasting, and a disturbing villain who wants to, "GRIND YOUR SKIN." The story ends with a shocking reveal, bringing into question the entire nature of Candle Cove, and the memories shared.
