    The poll was created at 01:14 on March 21, 2015, and so far 54 people voted.


    This was discussed on the Collaborative Writing Project page, but thought I'd make it clear as a thread. Since a non-contributor to the story nominated the story, Meet the Cast, for Pasta of the Month no story contributors may vote for it. This would give an unfair advantage above the other stories that were nominated since, possibly, all the contributing authors might vote for it and have an edge with the voting numbers. I apologize for putting this as a highlighted thread, but wanted to just let everyone know that. Hell, I love the way the story turned out, but can't vote for it either since I contributed to it. So that's that.

    Edit: The story will be featured on the front page in place of "Teacher Wanted. Must Love Children".

    Also, since I feel that the collaborative story was such a wonderful end product, I'd like to also use this thread to foster some discussion for the next collaborative story idea. Remember it's you, the community, that has to throw around ideas with this. After some time has passed, I will gather all results from you guys and make another vote thread for the next theme. I think this is the best way the community can voice what they want to see for the next one. I have had many non-contributors (from the last one) asking when the next one will be so they can add their parts. This is a pretty cool thing, folks. I encourage all budding talent/budding pros to give ideas for a central theme, then contribute.

    Anyway, spill your brainwaves in the comments below and let's get the ball rolling for a new idea.

    I'm pretty excited myself to see the weird journey the next one takes us on.

    Cheers.

    UPDATE: Polls will be opened this Friday. Please take the time to read though the options before voting and make any story suggestions you would like seen covered in the second collaborative writing project. Here are the current options:

    1: There are suddenly a lot of really nice yet dirt cheap houses on offer in the same street. Several families/people move in, not knowing that there was a very good reason the old people moved out...

    2: A post apocalyptic story where it does not rain. The rain is only provided by a either a series of trials some humans go through decided by Gods, titans, something supernatural (big, though). The humans do the trials and they receive rain for the next x amount of years experienced there.

    3: A young adult (roughly 18) walks into a ghost town with little or no people in it & decides to explore. Then it switches between the stories of the town to the story of the boy between different intervals. Eventually all the stories link together & the last part of the story is the boy finding someone (or something) and then leaving it open ended.

    4: Clarity Communications: Tales about its mysterious founder or board of directors. The advanced projects division and its attempts to weaponize ghosts. The company picnic from which no one returned alive. The middle manager having an affair with something not quite human. The offshore telemarketing service they offer where the costs are kept low by the staff being the undead, stolen from their graves and raised by a corporate houngan. The office block which disappeared due to the company's decision to build on a burial ground, using special generators to channel the energy from the dead to power the air conditioning. The frustrated, obsessive hacker who finally breaks into the company's main network support offices and discovers that the company 'servers' are the homeless with their brains exposed and wires erupting from the puffy meat like a drunken spider's web.

    Or:

    4: I had an idea for a story where there's a small town that's really a front for a secret government lab where they can do whatever illegal things they want. Each story would focus around experiments, the running of the facility, or an aspect of the town and it would be up to the author to decide what exactly would be going on. We could have all types of stories in there considering it would focus on the town and the facility e.i. documents, audio recordings, journal entries, or just plain narration. I think this'd be a cool way for authors to experiment with new story telling techniques and ideas that you don't see much on the main site.

    5: How about a pre-apocalypse scenario involving a meteor or something that's going to destroy the earth? I think it'd be interesting to explore the psyches of a group of people from different backgrounds, countries, races, and religions all being confronted with the end of not only their existence, but that of the world itself.

    6: Perhaps an odd man that travels from city to city, and in each place, he witnesses something horrific. Each event can be a stand alone story, but the presence of the strange man ties it all together in some form.

    7: A group of college friends sitting around at a cabin telling horror stories, ghost stories and urban legends. Or... Something happens at the end. The writers can use real urban legends from their locale. Every town has its own legend/stories.

    Final update for the page: We have a winner! Idea 5 has swept the competition and will be our theme for this collaborative project. I will be making a separate page March 29th with guidelines for posting.

    • I would like something focusing on multiple perspectives. (Whether they are told in one-shot or continuing is up to the author) This will help as I'm sure if everyone had to write of the same character, they would be quite a few discrepancies and mood shifts as each author attempts to tell their story and develop the same character.

      As for a premise, we can look into the tried-and-true apocalyptic event, multiple narratives with some sort of being/creature, a scientific experiment with multiple subjects (like the Stanford Prison experiment, the Milgram shock experiment, etc.)

      Really, let's look into the other premises in the original that were passed over and see if any stand out. We can then do a poll with a few of them and some newer ideas. I think that'll probably be the most fruitful approach.

      There is already a pasta like that on the creepypasta wikia, or there was it might have been deleted. It would need to be changed slightly if it were to make sence as a collab pasta. Thats a kind of story that works better as a one person story. You could make is so that the story is told by other people seeing the kid doing some messed up stuff or something like that, it might work better.

    • This is a story I thought I'd work on after my exams, but I'm putting it out here anyways. A man wishes for immortality in a drunken state. Over the next couple of days, he starts losing minor body parts like fingernails, hair, etc. He's admitted to the hospital, and his body slowly starts digesting itself (muscles, sensory nerves start to atrophy). After the process is complete it is discovered that the body has formed a sort of cocoon, and a child is found to have developed within the blob of flesh that remains of the man. Child matures quickly and shows signs of memories of the 'parent'. Child (now in adolescence) starts to lose fingernails, hair and teeth, implying cycle repeatig itself.

    • Using a creepy house in creepypastas may be overdone, but I have an idea. We could have a story that can be either told from multiple perspectives or can be told in an SCP style. The different accounts can be from people who have lived in a certain house or building and they say all the things they have experienced there. Each creature/ghost/being can be different. So basically:

      Set in a building where people have seen and heard many strange creatures/beings All the different experiments that have taken place there and people's accounts if living there History of the building

      No one said it had to be the house itself that was creepy. It could be what inhabited the house, how the house affected the owners or previous owners, etc. Look at the previous pasta, it wasn't about the dice itself, but the affect the dice had on people's lives.

      I hope this is what you were referring to. If not, disregard this:

      You're missing the point. Essentially the central theme suggested above was of several homes in a neighborhood. Several, very different, stories could be contrived from these houses, much like we did with "Meet the Cast".

      It's still pretty early in the voting, though, so we could just re-set the poll with little harm done. To be honest, I think it sort of has an unfair advantage; I mean, you created and highlighted a whole thread about it. Plus, the people who contributed to the story could still be voting on it. I know you told them not to, but it's not like they'd get caught if they did.

      TL;DR this should probably be disqualified

      Yeah, true. Go ahead and do what you said, if you will. I think the Damn Fine Pasta winner has been on the front page long enough anyway. The collab project would be a good successor to it imho.

    • All these ideas are good, and its interesting to see everyone contributing, but I think it would be a good idea to write a story featured in a category that is somewhat neglected. To me, at least, that seems like a good way to raise awareness of a particular area of Pastas that aren't really well known. The Admins might know of such a class.

    • A post apocalyptic story where it does not rain. The rain is only provided by a either a series of trials some humans go through decided by Gods, titans, something supernatural (big, though).  Or it is provided by one person acting as a sacrifice to whichever deity is chosen. The sacrifice could be that the person would be forced to live in an undesirable place, maybe where the gods live, somewhere. I kind of like the first idea better. The different POVs could be different people writing through different characters, and maybe each POV's story is a trial from a different time, maybe with differing gods. Each time, they uncover something really sinister about the past and future societies. Or something deeply disturbing (good plot twists though, not just pure gore) that would make for a really great creepypasta.

      Also, the humans do the trials and they receive rain for the next x amount of years

      I kind of just developed this, but, it might be a good idea?

      A young adult (roughly 18) walks into a ghost town with little or no people in it & decides to explore. Then it switches between the stories of the town to the story of the boy between different intervals. Eventually all the stories link together & the last part of the story is the boy finding someone (or something) and then leaving it open ended.


      JUST TO BE CLEAR: i have little experience writing but i do come up with some brilliant ideas, I just have trouble getting it down on paper. Im not exactly a "pro" but that is something you might want to consider

      p.s: this could work in collab by everyone writing a seperate story based around the town so they may or may not have to include characters that have already been mentioned, but the start & ending must be written by the same person otherwise this won't work

      I hate to take the wind out of your sails here, but torture doesn't make or break a story in the genre of horror. Ever hear of imagination? Sometimes what the author doesn't tell you will just be enough to scare you a zillion times more than a charming documentary on the finer points of kneecap extractment. Why should people have to sit through several paragraphs of mindless violence? There's zero appeal there unless you really do have real-life issues (not saying you do, just trying to make a point).

      Also, remember that this is a community-based project. Many people may not agree with your extreme idea.

      It has to be something fun, for one thing. A lot of people have put forth some pretty interesting ideas already but straight up "kid torture porn" doesn't even come close. It's not creative for one thing, and it's not scary for another. It's just gross and unnecessarily disturbing.

      How about an under-the-bed monster who breeds by slowly crawling into the child's skin? It clones the child and sends the original child to Hell. The stories could center around the mother trying to protect her children, to no avail. Or the child's build-up of abject agony.

      More original than "2spooky demon possessed child," with flavors of The Babadook and The Thing.

      Plus, the demented nursery rhyme/old wives tale vibe gives writers more freedom in time period, writing format (poems?), and perspective. If the writer desires, they could also address social issues like child abuse (but, hey).

      Just my two cents. I'll add more details as I see fit, and we'll see if you want to develop it further!

    • How about stories tied together under the central theme of a new age tech company such as Google, but our own creation, one with more sinister underpinnings and practices.

      'Clarity Communications' for example.

      Tales about its mysterious founder or board of directors. The advanced projects division and its attempts to weaponize ghosts. The company picnic from which no one returned alive. The middle manager having an affair with something not quite human. The offshore telemarketing service they offer where the costs are kept low by the staff being the undead, stolen from their graves and raised by a corporate houngan. The office block which disappeared due to the company's decision to build on a burial ground, using special generators to channel the energy from the dead to power the air conditioning. The frustrated, obsessive hacker who finally breaks into the company's main network support offices and discovers that the company 'servers' are the homeless with their brains exposed and wires erupting from the puffy meat like a drunken spider's web.

      You know, stuff like that ;)

Underneath all the fake business side of the company they are actually capturing paranormal entities/monsters/beings and they could also be creating them! They could be using them to work in their company or maybe they have another agenda... I like all the scandals and peculiar things that occured there such as the entire office block disappearing and the company picnic. CharminglyShallow...I like this idea! :)

Something that makes the everyday questionable and fill it with unease, we should not limit it to a scary house or street, but instead expand upon it and make it feel as though it is staring down at us, watching in brutal undying obsession.

      something kinda like 1999 but creepier messed up and in better detail

      1999 is a perfect example of the everyday turned sinister. However I think better detail doesn’t actually equate to a better scare. Short and simple allows the reader carry on to the next subject without their mind dawdling on one subject for too long. It also allows the reader to fill in the finer points of detail; therefore allowing them to create, in their own mind, the scariest situation relative to them.

    • However leaving out too much detail can make it sound lazy.

      E.g. "...and so his door was left open one night.

      That very night something entered his home, something that he dismissed as mere gush of wind when it slid over him in the midst of his semi-present slumber..."

      see the above example is quite contrived and all around lazy. We have no scafold to form a creature or any definite conclusion that this creature is a threat. For all we know this thing could be a house moth.

    • How about a pre-apocalypse scenario involving a meteor or something that's going to destroy the earth? I think it'd be interesting to explore the psyches of a group of people from different backgrounds, countries, races, and religions all being confronted with the end of not only their existence, but that of the world itself.

      There could be one about a man of god trying to keep his faith, or a man with cancer or something who's already come to peace with his own death, but after realizing that everyone else he knows is going to die too, resolves to live. Maybe explore how quickly people stop following the rules once they cease to matter, like maybe following a looter on a spree. Maybe a cult forms, worshipping the meteor(or something) as a second-coming of sorts- we could explore the motivations of the leader, or some of the people in it.

      I think this could work because it's a very human scenario. Thrusting an ordinary person into an extraordinary situation is great fodder for writing in general. I'd love to hear what others think about something like this. The meteor is just a placeholder- I know it's been done a thousand times in hollywood already. Maybe someone else can think of another catastrophe.

      Maybe it's a few million years in the future and the earth is falling into the sun.

For example we can tell the story of the couple who moved there. We could have someone tell a story of how they were chased through their property by a figure wearing the mask. Maybe there are more people that wear the mask? There could be some satanic cult nearby that perform such practices. Maybe the objects ended up in the box by mistake? We could take this in various directions.

      This is an excellent idea for a story, and I can see it being very entertaining, but how would you make it scarier? The idea of the world ending is a subject on many a mind, so how would you make that subject more confronting than its already made out to be. For instance Cormac McCarthy’s novel ‘the Road’ made an apocalypse setting that had people eating unborn children and basements filled with naked tortured people, which added an element of twisted occurrences that could happen but not pondered when people mention “the end of mankind”.

      There are various elements of this idea that could make quite a frightening read. I personally am frightened more by the creepy pastas that seem like they could happen, such as '1999' (which I understand I've mentioned way too many times before). I can see this idea being one of them, that is if it doesn’t end up feeling contrived right from the get go.

      The fear comes from impending doom. The stories come from how people respond to the fear. The idea is not supposed to be scary on a "pursued by a monster" level. It's scary on an existential level. The situation is scary. It's the scariest situation.

    • I like the idea of introducing another Collaborative project, however, I would offer a few pointers that may improve it.

      One thing that I didn't really like about the Halloween project was the restrictive nature. The only reason that I didn't contribute to it, was because, for the life of me, I couldn't come up with a good story, a CP Wiki quality level story, where I could work in the dice angle. Honestly, what I did manage to think up, was very detached from the actual project guidelines, with the dice only being referenced but never really used as a plot device.

      While I do understand that we need some form of consisten concept to tie it all together, I would highly suggest that we go with a more open ended and less restrictive concept. Something that can be strung together to an end result, but still allows for maximum creative writing for the writers.

      Perhaps a odd man that travels from city to city, and in each place, he witnesses something horrific. Each event can be a stand alone story, but the presence of the strange man ties it all together in some form.

      Then, whoever decides to write the final entry, can decide this person's role in all of the chaos.

      Just a thought.

      I like the "restrictive" thing. 

      My story idea was kind of the opposite of yours. I was thinking more along the lines of a single horrific event witnessed by multiple people; each person's perspective sheds more light on what exactly happened. Stories can be changed by different people, and there can be unreliable narrators.

      As for the event, it can be anywhere from a shooting spree to a bombing (or perhaps something more supernatural).

      A while back there was a new born Aboriginal baby that was buried alive on one of the mangrove islands on our local river. It wasn’t the only child to be buried out there during the Assimilation between Aboriginal and white culture. Many people local to the area say that the cries of the child can be heard when you visit the swampy island.



      There have also been many cases of mass slaughter of the Aboriginals around the coast line forest areas; this all took place a while ago when the Aboriginals were seen inferior to the white society.

      True stories make good stories, it would be nice if everybody got together & wrote something based on a true thing that happened in their town/suburb/city/state or country, I guess you could twist it a little if it isn't scary enough but other than that, stick to telling mainly the truth or what you saw/heard

      Sorry for the long comment, but I think I didn't explain myself enough the first time.

    • I had an idea for a story where there's a small town that's really a front for a secret government lab where they can do whatever illegal things they want. Each story would focus around experiments, the running of the facility, or an aspect of the town and it would be up to the author to decide what exactly would be going on. We could have all types of stories in there considering it would focus on the town and the facility e.i. documents, audio recordings, journal entries, or just plain narration. I think this'd be a cool way for authors to experiment with new story telling techniques and ideas that you don't see much on the main site.

    • So let's get this ball picked back up and put back on track. Here are the ideas (in the author's words) I found most applicable for a collar project. This weekend I will set up voting. This would be a good time to argue which one you think would be best before voting begins and to flesh out your ideas. You can also suggest a new idea if you want.

      1: There are suddenly a lot of really nice yet dirt cheap houses on offer in the same street. Several families/people move in, not knowing that there was a very good reason the old people moved out...

      2: A post apocalyptic story where it does not rain. The rain is only provided by a either a series of trials some humans go through decided by Gods, titans, something supernatural (big, though). The humans do the trials and they receive rain for the next x amount of years experienced there.

      3: A young adult (roughly 18) walks into a ghost town with little or no people in it & decides to explore. Then it switches between the stories of the town to the story of the boy between different intervals. Eventually all the stories link together & the last part of the story is the boy finding someone (or something) and then leaving it open ended.

      4: Clarity Communications: Tales about its mysterious founder or board of directors. The advanced projects division and its attempts to weaponize ghosts. The company picnic from which no one returned alive. The middle manager having an affair with something not quite human. The offshore telemarketing service they offer where the costs are kept low by the staff being the undead, stolen from their graves and raised by a corporate houngan. The office block which disappeared due to the company's decision to build on a burial ground, using special generators to channel the energy from the dead to power the air conditioning. The frustrated, obsessive hacker who finally breaks into the company's main network support offices and discovers that the company 'servers' are the homeless with their brains exposed and wires erupting from the puffy meat like a drunken spider's web.

      5: How about a pre-apocalypse scenario involving a meteor or something that's going to destroy the earth? I think it'd be interesting to explore the psyches of a group of people from different backgrounds, countries, races, and religions all being confronted with the end of not only their existence, but that of the world itself.

      6: Perhaps an odd man that travels from city to city, and in each place, he witnesses something horrific. Each event can be a stand alone story, but the presence of the strange man ties it all together in some form.

      7: A group of college friends sitting around at a cabin telling horror stories, ghost stories and urban legends. Or... Something happens at the end. The writers can use real urban legends from their locale. Every town has its own legend/stories.

      8: I had an idea for a story where there's a small town that's really a front for a secret government lab where they can do whatever illegal things they want.

    • Well mine was number 8 and I was thinking about there being certain wings of the facility that some of the experiments could take place in. Level 1 or Project Asimov: Where experiments on robotics, engineering, multiverses/dimensions, and anything cosmic including aliens. Level 2 or Project Hecate: relating to magic, spirits, demons, angles, gods, religions, anything under the magic spectrum. Level 3 or Project Terra: anything relating to biology or earth i.e. cloning, experimentation, psychology, surgery, super human abilities, exploration, traveling, etc. For the town I think we could try to make up a name for it, a basic lay out, and description of some prominent citizens.

      I feel like #4 and #8 are very similar. Company/Government facility where they do different illegal things? The only real difference is whether it's a Company or the Government.

      Damn, I didn't even notice that post... well maybe since the ideas are so similar we could try to merge them into one thing. They seem like they wouldn't really interfere with each other's plot that much, and could still incorporate a majority of what we were trying to get through. Although, we would need the author's permission on it. I also fleshed out my idea a bit on the thread, so that might be a bit relevant.

    • Well... What if we could think about a person who moves in new town, gets a new job and wants to start his life, but is scared of himself and what other people are thinking about him because he wants to be accepted. After a couple of days (in which he becomes even more worried than before) he gets an strange ability to hear what other people are thinking. He thinks it is a "gift from God", but he is overloaded when he realises that he can't choose when this happens and hears over 100 voices at the same times. But it's ok if this is not original or other people don't like it.

    • As opposed to the notion of having a street where many people move in and weird things happen to them that was suggested (once you got past two or three it'd just be odd) maybe make it so there is a town/region that is common to all the stories like King's Derry or Lovecraft's Arkham. What would be doubly neat is if the admins came up with a few elements that had to be included in each story (the aforementioned location, a shadowy figure, etc). Have a deadline for the contributions and then have one or two people figure out a way to tie all of the stories together while developing/revealing more about the required elements. You could establish a reading order for the individually contributed parts and have the tie-ins serve as either filler between the stories, bookends as a prologue/epilogue, or both. I'm thinking like Trick 'r Treat (great movie by the way. Highly recommend watching if you haven't)

    • I too have an idea. It was on my sub for stories, but since I don't have room or time for it right now, making it a big collaboration would work. How about we have a character driving home from work (or a party, or school, or whatever) one night and he crashes and destroys some obscure nerve(s) in his brain or something, causing him to see unspeakable horrors that others do not - and his girlfriend or some other person close to him ponders whether or not to endure his apparent psychopathy or commit him to an institution.

    • I have an idea. The story can be about how a guy recieves a box on his front door. It says "do not open'. The box is really beautiful and everything glitters around it. More like a Pandora's Box tale with a deadly end. He eventually gives in to his curiosity and opens the box. It is empty. A few days pass by nicely, but it's just the calm before the storm. Suddenly the box seems to be everywhere it goes. It seems dark this time. He opens it again to reveal a message inside, " Chaos is grateful." and then things start to take a bad toll for the guys life. Like anyone who talks to him gets killed somehow in an accident. He becomes guilty and shuts him in room. He tries to suicide but fails because he is saved everytime. He HAS A CHAOTIC BEAST HELPING HIM UNLEASH CHAOS. So, he can't do anything now.

      I know theres a discussion around here talking about why orginality doesnt matter too much, this would be one that it doesnt, I love this idea and maybe its not a chaotic beast but just a multi-dimensional box capable of killing a person everytime he opens it, like the butterfly effect or something like that

    • Okay, guys, I've got one:  a haunted abortion clinic.

        Loading editor
    • I'd love it, @HumboldtLycanthrope except that would it be from the point of views of the dead babies(who really shouldn't have such an elaborate thought process) or the mothers that died there, or comitted suicide after aborting their children? 

        Loading editor
    • More on the haunted abortion clinic idea.  We could have independent, stand alone stories through the eyes of doctors, nurses and patients.  The patients in particular would offer great character studies.  The ghosts of embryos, patients who have died from complications, doctors who have been murdered by right to life activists, patients and doctors who have killed themselves.  It would be gnarly and controversial but the possibilities are endless when you start to think about it.

        Loading editor
    • I know the babies don't have an elaborate thought process, but perhaps the over all energy of death has evolved and developed into this dark, malignant force. 

        Loading editor
    • We'd have to be really careful about it. It would cause a lot of debate, so I think avoiding any propaganda (anti or pro) is key.

        Loading editor
    • I agree, no propaganda for either side at all.  Just lots of dark creepiness, excellent characters and well written prose.

        Loading editor
    • @TheKoromo that is wise, so we'd stay strictly within the confines of the abortion clinic, although if we were to describe the scene of the clinic, there might be a few pro posters or something, although this can be walked around byusing posters that say something like "There is Another option"

      @HumboldtLycanthrope, would/could the babies collectively be a malignant force that occasionally broke into individuals, or maybe only the dominant babies broke away from the group on occasion, and like, the lead one caused the demise of the head doctor/nurse by haunting its conscience until it was reduced to a blubbering mass that haunted the clinic, full of regret and confusion, trying to turn away all of those that wanted to enter. or what if the dominant baby tried to trick people into thinking that it was a safe place, and that the doctors pitiful soul was simply trying to manipulate them into going into a false safe place?



      I feel like I'm getting too into this.

        Loading editor
    • I don't know if we could have a doctor trying to turn away those that wanted to enter, for it might sound too pro life.  But everything else sounds good.  Possession by a malignant force of dead fetuses sounds like an incredible concept.  We could even make it take place in the early eighties, like, maybe seven years after Roe vs. Wade.

    • Not really a fan. Think it would be too constricting. Things like a mental hospital there's lots of different things you go for. Really only one reason second goes to an abortion clinic...although as I'm writing this I have an idea or two. Anyways, not my first choice.

        Loading editor
    • What about some sort of mutation/body horror approach? Inside the hospital there's some kind of screwed up medication/concoction that's causing the dead children to morph horrifyingly.

    • That could cause more controversy, though. Not sure.

    • I like it Koromo.  How about stem cell research or something that goes horrifyingly wrong.  Strange underground and illegal medical experiments.  As long as we don't tread into the moral nature of whether abortion is right or wrong I don't think anything is too controversial.

        Loading editor
    • @TheKoromo, I see your point there. We would need/It would be nice to have an explanation as to why the babies are the way they are after death.

      @Shadowswimmer, I'd have to agree with Humboldt, I've read a lot of stories about Mental hospitals, and eventually they eill become cliche, as people will all use similiar ideas. i like the prospect, but we'd need a new catch if we were to use that approach.

      @HumboldtLycanthrope the fist writer could start off as the point of view of the doctor in its  last living days. the doctor living would not turn anyone away, only be haunted by the ever growing mass of baby spirits or whatever invading themost intimate place of their mind and the doctor would turn people away once it was abandoned. it could begin the early 80and then we could flash forward to right after Roe vs.Wade. The doctor would only turn away people coming to get a scare or inocent wandering spirits.

      More on the haunted abortion clinic idea.  We could have independent, stand alone stories through the eyes of doctors, nurses and patients.  The patients in particular would offer great character studies.  The ghosts of embryos, patients who have died from complications, doctors who have been murdered by right to life activists, patients and doctors who have killed themselves.  It would be gnarly and controversial but the possibilities are endless when you start to think about it.

      I missed that earlier, I don't know how, But YES, that idea is amazing. 

      I meant will and first earlier, a minor glitch kept me from editing myself.

    • @TheKoromo, agreed on the sense of humor. but we probably all have that side to us. I laughed at Russian Sleep Experiment my first time around. My guy friend found it terrifying and I just... well, that's a story for another day. 

      if this idea doesn't get picked, i still want to do something with it. And I would love it to be a mini collaboration type deal.

    • When you think about it, horror and comedy are really similar genres.

    • They really are.

    • Thanks, Batman.  I hope this gets picked.  Horror and comedy are similair, like pornography I suppose, in that they are unrelenting in their goals.  Comedy is definitely much harder to write.  Most of my stories probably come off as being written by someone trying too hard to be edgy, Garbage Factory is the only one besides myself who finds them humorous, repulsion being the usual stated feeling I get in the comments.  I think we will have to be very careful with the comedic edge, though, as this will be an unsettling and dark subject matter.  It's viability as a collaborative piece is excellent, in that there can be many characters and many stories.

      Yeah, I agree. This story would be really interesting to write, so i hope it gets picked. I guess horro comedy might not be the best idea because it's such a touchey topic.

    • ah comedy horrors, quite good until the dark humer becomes too much and then it turns upside down, still a good idea though.

      You could write about a young boy, and as the story goes along, say how he'd died, what happened to his family. But don't only write from the boy's point of view, write from the parent as well and was being done a the momet regarding is death. 

      Just a plot you could use, good luck!

    • I'm not saying comedy horror, I'm just saying that horror in general has a lot of ties to comedy, even if it is morbid and doesn't intend to have the "comedy-horror" subgenre slapped on it.

    • I like my idea,how 8 is winning idk and how some of them got picked idk but I think the top 5 have a good story.

    • Ok real talk. my problem with 8 is that it discourages collabs hard. Sure, the concept allows all users to create their own myths (Or steal them accoridng to the idea) but outside of that you cant really squeeze in an over arching plot that everyone can work on together because the concept has a heavier emphasis on stand alone stories instead of a joined story.

      The lab story works better because you can tell a lot of stories about a lab that has no rules or ethics (Think MK Ultra and Unit 713) and a town that are their test subjects. Users could work alone or together on stories of scientists, experiments, spies (maybe), the towns interaction, destruction, flourishment, and have it all center around some overarching theme or idea. Or a goal that the lab is aiming for that isn't revealed at first but is subtly hinted at by the writers in the collab until a big revelation. Theres so much more to work with than "spooky stories in a spooky cabin."

      Just my two cents on the topics that are neck to neck.

      Think he meant 8 from when he originally listed out all the ideas, which would now be 5.
