The Harrowick Chronicles
Odd occurrences from the city of Sombermorey and Harrowick County
~ A quiet young woman stumbles upon an abandoned cemetery, and quickly claims it as her own private sanctum. But when All Hallow's Eve rolls around, she learns that it's been abandoned for a very good reason.
~ ~ ~
~ A young Witch goes to investigate an old abandoned church, wondering if the mysterious figure she encountered there years before was real. Instead, she finds a god that has no business dwelling in any human sanctuary.
~ During a routine sleepover, a pair of teenage girls uncover a hidden trap door in one of their basements. It leads to a forgotten cellar, filled with forbidden secrets that should have been left to rot.
~ "You asked me once, what was in Room 101. I told you that you knew the answer already. Everyone knows it. The thing that is in Room 101 is the worst thing in the world." - Nineteen Eighty-Four, George Orwell
~ Upon discovering a new brand of energy drink in a strange vending machine, young Halcyon is more than eager to give it a go. It's not until she finally manages to fall asleep again that she learns its ridiculous, over-the-top name was more than just a marketing gimmick.
~ Desperate times call for desperate measures. When two young men decide to burgle an empty guest house of their local plutocrat, they find it's guarded by an uncommonly cerebral watchman, who's not about to let something as trivial as not having a body keep him from his duties.
~ A conversation with her spirit familiar leads Samantha to a collection of arcane scrolls, containing portents of a rare alignment of occult forces in the days to come. It also leads her to her first encounter with Seneca Chamberlin, the most mysterious plutocrat of Harrowick County.
~ During an out of town business trip, a man drops into a peculiar Oddity Shop and purchases a pair of antique, red-tinted goggles, and has his eyes opened to horrors he never imagined.
~ Along a seldom troden road, there lies a virtually unknown conservatory for the rarest of spiders. You're welcome to visit, just mind where you step.
~ With almost twenty years in between Moon rises, it'd be a shame to let this one go to waste.
~ Following his greatest failure, Seneca Chamberlin must return to his Order's headquarters to face the consequences. What waits for him there is his worst nightmare, literally.
~ “I think a little splash of colour is exactly what this production needs.”
~ When going through their attic for Christmas decorations, Samantha and Genevieve find a letter left by Eve's Great Grandfather, revealing a long kept family secret.
~ Investigating local legends that say the old Fawn & Raubritter Foundry is still in business, Ella discovers something far more monstrous and outlandish than she ever dared to fear.
~ ... It's Alive.
~ "The whole scene was reminiscent of Saturn devouring his children, only with Saturn reimagined as some sort of Lovecraftian boogieman."
~ Not all childhood fears are imaginary.
~ Red Ruck, run amok, crowned the Regent Red. Eyes aflame, soul untamed, come join me in my bed.
~ Seeking shelter from a sudden storm, a driver pulls into the Somber Starlight Roadhouse. When he gets to his room, he finds that the nightstand contains something a little less traditional than a Gideon's Bible.
~ A strange howling in the middle of the night from the nearby woods draws a young woman in to investigate, only for her to walk right into the middle of someone else's story.
~ "If it's not the traps, then that means that the rats have skipped town, were caught by someone else first, or are smart enough to avoid or escape the traps altogether, and none of those are acceptable.”
~ “Okay, but remembered that you’re the god-defying, necromancing, monster-fighting Witch. I’m the pot-smoking, lesbian, yoga-instructor Witch.”
~ "Hey, Charlie; do you want to hear about the time I shot a Nazi warlock?"
Stand-Alone stories that don't necessarily fit into any canon
~ Well, have you? I bet you've been doing it wrong.
~ When a blind woman receives an offer to participate in a mysterious company's experiments with darkness, at first she doesn't see the harm in signing up. Once she's in the lab though, she starts to see why she shouldn't have come - and a whole lot more besides.
~ Let me just get the obvious out of the way first; yes, I’ve actually been to the future.
~ Be sure to check the table for bugs before you sit down to eat.
~ “Nope. ‘Were’ means man. A Were-Witch would be a warlock,” Thorogood said sardonically. If he was going to die, he might as well die correcting people’s etymological errors.
~ The Backrooms were filled with all manner of ‘what-was-that’s and ‘who’s-there’s, and greater fools than Cervin knew those were questions best left unanswered.
~ The girl tried to scream as Annabelle’s fangs sunk into her neck, but her jaws clamped down with such force that she couldn’t even breathe.
The Dreadfort Files
Leaked stories from the archives of the top-secret Dreadfort Facility
~ "Gordy is a silly name for an Eldritch Abomination."
Tales that double-dip into my Dread & Circuses Canon on the SCP Wiki
~ In 15th century London town, an old apothecary and his granddaughter have their evening interrupted by a rather zealous member of the Inquisition, who's convinced they're guilty of witchcraft. Does a fiery execution await the both of them, or might they yet have a trick up their sleeves to keep their lives and livelihood from going up in smoke?
~ "Yes, we lure people in here to be tortured, killed, and then chucked into a pit because that's how we get our rocks off. We’re monsters, and we’re fine and dandy with that."

My favourite pages
- Candle Cove would have to be my favourite of the classic creepypastas, especially with the expanded lore of the show that's been generated over the years.
- The Russian Sleep Experiment is my second favourite classic pasta.
- For some reason, The Thing That Stalks The Fields by David Feuling stands out in my memory among the earlier creepypastas as well.
- Whispers Heard Through the Wall, and to a lesser extent its sequels, would be my favourite of Empyreal Invective's writings.
- I'm a huge fan of the Wicker Series by ShadowSwimmer77, in particular The Wicker House.
- The Well, the Wheel, and Wilhelm by Creepy Thomas O is quite possibly my favourite stand-alone creepypasta.
- The Song and Dance Man
- Ava Miller is in Room 201 at the Starlight Motel provides a very unsettling sense of body horror and loss of agency.
- The Whistler in the Night by George Nowick.
- Beyong the Veil, by sixty seagraves.
- Heather Thomas delivers an excellent reading of Blindness by Moonlit Cove.
- If It's the Last Thing I Do by joshuawaggoner90. Tik tok. Tik tok. Is that a crocodile I hear? While I'm a fan of The Worstverse in general, this one stands out as being a bit more serious in tone than the rest, while at the same time serving as a prequel to the events of I Ride For Cerber.
- Spacegirl by Ryan Peacock aka HeadOfSpectre. Absolutely beautiful story.
