The Slenderman painting is still available too. And speaking of spooky shit, here's a comment I posted on a ontdcreepy Personal Experiences post last week. Stuff like this never happens to me, and if it does, I don't much like to talk about it for worry of seeming a Special Snowflake who wants to experience Special Things. I don't know about the snowflake part, but I could happily go the rest of my life without another night like this. (There was one more after the experience related below, but no more since then.) However, since I feel like I haven't been posting much interesting reading here lately, I give you this unembellished:
I'm very interested in supernatural things but not at all sensitive to them. My mom sees ghosts sometimes, but I don't (and would be scared shitless if I did). However, a couple of times over the years I've woken up with the impression that something had been bending over my bed. I never exactly saw it, but even though I got the idea it was desiccated and corpse-like, I (oddly for me) didn't feel scared or threatened by it.
Last night, though, was BAD. I couldn't get to sleep until after the sun came up because every time I'd start to drift off, it felt like something tall in a hood or cowl kept leaning over my side of the bed. It wasn't exactly scary, but it was so disconcerting that I almost went around to the other side of the bed and slept on the floor, but I didn't want to leave my boyfriend ... exposed? He said he sensed it too, but only after I told him about it, so that could be the power of suggestion.
It wasn't sleep paralysis -- rather the opposite, as I kept tossing and turning and flailing about. I don't know. Creepy but interesting.
