The Suicide Orphan

by reddit user Cymoril_Melnibone

I’ve long been fascinated by internet horror stories and creepypastas.

I was young and impressionable when I stumbled across my first; Jvk1166z.esp, a story about a video game mod that went eerily wrong. That tumbled me down a dark and narrow rabbit hole into The Russian Sleep Experiment, then further lost me in the cryptid wonderland where all those other internet classics live.

A spell to gain control

A simple spell to help you gain control over your emotions or actions.

Best done at sunrise, noon, or sunset. You will need a clean, clear space and an small item of your choosing. 

Begin by cleansing yourself. Take a shower and imagine everything you would like to release being washed off (or use a cloth and water). If possible, untangle your hair, change into fresh clothes and take care of anything else that is bothering you. Use incense smoke if desired. 

Sit, and ground yourself. Hold the item in your hands and envision the ways you would like to change and gain control pouring into that item, filling it up. You are welcome to speak them, or write them down if that aids you. 

Carry that item with you and use it’s energy when needed. This spell can be used to recharge the item if needed. 

Close off the spell however you see fit. Be it a few words, a releasing of energies, some form of cleansing again, whatever works for you. 

WET FLOOR

*Making our way through a base disguised as workers: laundry, janitor, cook, plumber, etc.*

DM: Alpha Computer sends you on your mission to do laundry by flooding the room with dirty clothes, water, and detergent. What do you do?

Me *janitor*: I place a wet floor sign in the rising water.

DM: You have made Alpha Computer laugh. But you’re still drowning.

You don’t need fashion designers when you are young. Have faith in your own bad taste. Buy the cheapest thing in your local thrift shop - the clothes that are freshly out of style with even the hippest people a few years older than you. Get on the fashion nerves of your peers, not your parents - that is the key to fashion leadership. Ill-fitting is always stylish. But be more creative - wear your clothes inside out, backward, upside down. Throw bleach in a load of colored laundry. Follow the exact opposite of the dry cleaning instructions inside the clothes that cost the most in your thrift shop. Don’t wear jewelry - stick Band-Aids on your wrists or make a necklace out of them. Wear Scotch tape on the side of your face like a bad face-lift attempt. Mismatch your shoes. Best yet, do as Mink Stole used to do: go to the thrift store the day after Halloween, when the children’s trick-or-treat costumes are on sale, buy one, and wear it as your uniform of defiance.

She was making water, her clothing tangled about her ankles, when she heard rustling from under the trees. Hot Pie, she thought in panic, he followed me. Then she saw the eyes shining out from the wood, bright with reflected moonlight. Her belly clenched tight as she grabbed for Needle, not caring if she pissed herself, counting eyes, two four eight twelve, a whole pack …

One of them came padding out from under the trees. He stared at her, and bared his teeth, and all she could think was how stupid she’d been and how Hot Pie would gloat when they found her half-eaten body the next morning. But the wolf turned and raced back into the darkness, and quick as that the eyes were gone. Trembling, she cleaned herself and laced up and followed a distant scraping sound back to camp, and to Yoren. 

sana gets home by herself and she hears her mother and her father talking in the living room and she takes off her shoes and her mother asks “who is it?” and sana takes a deep breath before she says “it’s me” because she wants to sound like her usual self, she doesn’t want her parents to suspect anything, she wants to seem like she’s fine

but then she’s in her room and she’s so tired, she’s emotionally exhausted and she doesn’t even have the strength to get changed. and she just sits on the edge of her bed and her breathing is shaky and she’s trying not to cry because she knows that she won’t be able to stop if she does. it’s too much, all of it. elias and his friends fighting with isak’s friends, and isak being hurt, and noora and yousef, and all the horrible things these girls said about her in the toilet, and how dare they. how dare say they say that she disrespected her religion when she has never felt anything but immense respect and love and appreciation toward it, when it’s always been so important to her. and not only getting the confirmation that sara betrayed her, but also vilde. despite all the chances she has given her, despite being there for her countless times. and why why why does this keep happening to her, why do people keep treating her that way when all she’s ever wanted was to be a good person, when her own intentions have been nothing but good all along and it’s just
