TITLE: Mr. Laufeyson’s Ward

CHAPTER NO./ONE SHOT: Chapter 11

AUTHOR: goddessofmischief

ORIGINAL IMAGINE: Imagine you are living in the late 1800’s and your parents pass away due to a tragic accident. Leaving you an orphan, you are sent to a miserable orphanage. Then, a mysterious and harsh man named Loki visits the orphanage and takes you on as his ward. He brings you to his crumbling mansion in the English countryside, where you face his cruel intentions, and eventually discover that you care for him much more than you’d like to admit.

RATING: T

NOTES: As always, thank you for your patience. Also, I thought I’d share the song that I based the waltz scene off of. It’s not actually a traditional piece of music, but I find it beautiful nevertheless. Enjoy!

Was I just a ploy being used by my master to make Lavinia jealous?
This thought entered my mind as my master and I descended the grand staircase of Asthall Manor, amidst a cacophony of gasps and sudden exclamations, as the rest of the guests began to take notice of us.
I squirmed uncomfortably at this attention, and entwined my arm more securely around my master’s.

A Blue Prince To Own, Chapter 6 (Part 1)

The next morning passes almost uneventfully, with of course some scolding from my behavior the previous day, all except for Hunk pointing out my faults. He knows how deep it runs now and hopefully, he’ll know even better once I leave my position to Matt. Which, when he pulls me aside with his droopy, ichor colored eyes and lopsided smile, I can’t help but just grind my teeth. He’s a perfect fit for the Blue Paladin, he’s all my good qualities and more, without the parts that nobody wants. A mirror reflection of myself, but better, improved. Goddamn it, does Sam Holt only grow awe inspiring seedlings?

It’s worse even when he begins to tell me how even though it was funny to watch me make Shiro so red, it was wrong of me and I should learn from that, to hold my tongue. I don’t muster up a pretty little, obedient, apologetic response like I did with all the others who believed they could get through to me. Matt isn’t nearly as short as Pidge, but with the universe granting me so little in strength, they had to make a comeback in height so I step closer. He steps backwards and so our game presumes until his back is against the wall and I’m relishing in the couple of inches I have on him. This is the man who flows like poison through my life, infecting all the good parts. How can he stare so innocently up at me, like a deer caught in headlights?

My eyes narrow on their own accord and I trap him there with my hands flat on the wall at each side of his head. I have no clue how but I growl at him and I see his hands tighten into fists at either side of his hips. Whatever, take a hit, Keith freaking Kogane already beat me up last night, don’t think many people can fair against that. “I hate you.” I say simply, smiling just like usual, except less forced. Let’s pry another burden off my chest. “I hate everything about you. You’ve made the people I once wouldn’t hesitate for a second to call my slightly awkward space family doubt my abilities, begin to lose trust in me, and neglect me. Leave me in the dust. Do you understand? You are replacing me. They think you’re the new Blue Paladin.”

“Lance, I didn’t - I never intended to - ”

“Shut up!” I snap and he flinches beneath me. “I wasn’t done talking, Matt. So, I will continue getting my point across, and if you still feel the need to respond, feel free, okay?” He nods shakily and I feel so violent because he’s right here, why shouldn’t I make him hurt like I have, every day, since he arrived? But, I don’t. That isn’t what I’m doing here, in my last moments as an honorable Paladin. “I’m fine with everybody telling me that what I did was wrong. It was wrong. I don’t care, but nevertheless, I know it wasn’t the right thing to do because contrary to popular belief, I’m not fucking stupid. But, I will throw myself into a black hole, wailing my love for country music and pineapple on pizza before I let the one who has turned my life into a sad, sad abyss tell me how to behave. I’m fine with you ruining my life, but I will not take orders from you, pretend to enjoy your company, or ever want to speak civilly with you. It’s making me sick just being this close to you. So, do me the only favor I will ever allow you to do me, and piss. Off.” I end the rant with a slow hiss.

So, that’s supposed to be where the conversation ends, but he’s too much like me to not have adapted the same big, impulsive mouth and now I’m understanding why Pidge was drawn to me while he was still captive. “I thought you were a good guy, Lance. Maybe you still are. But, you’re doing bad things and I know that disrespecting Shiro is just the tip of the ice burg.”

The blood floods from my face. No. He can’t - he doesn’t know right, about the plan? He can’t, the only one who knows is Lotor and I. And. I jerk away from Matt to smash my knuckles into the wall with a frustrated shout. Blue knew, and Matt’s supposed to be her future pilot, so of course Blue told him, she thought he could stop me from ‘making a mistake’, but she’s wrong. Now, I just have to act more carefully than before.

I don’t spare the older Holt shrimp anymore of my time, I don’t have it to waste. I return to Blue’s cockpit and nap for exactly fifteen minutes before she wakes me up and I enter the coordinates in the escape pod, so that it’s ready for my leave.

The ideal time waster until it’s time to go would be to lounge about in Blue, alternating between napping and talking to her, however I know it’ll draw suspicion if I don’t continue my pattern of pointless efforts in socialization with the other member’s of the little team. So, I go about my usual schedule, dragging my feet, feeling unwanted and seeing which doors in the castle open. I stumble upon a large room with infant cribs and foam mats, some semblance of a toy bin, all in pastel colors. It must have been… some sort of nursery. And it’s plucking all of my heart strings.

The castle had some sort of self perseverance setting that automatically went off when Coran and Allura were frozen, so it’s as good as new, like everything else on the ship. No bacteria would settle in and no weird alien mold would begin to grow, because the advanced Altean technology allowed it to be kept safe and hygienic for 10,000 years. I… was the baby of my family. The youngest. The one who didn’t usually have the pressure of setting an example because I was the impressionable baby that everyone just wanted to protect. I did, however, have little cousins that would visit often. They’d come over and the sound of baby’s shaking their rattles and the joyous shrieks of toddler’s would echo off the walls. I always found them so annoying and got jealous when my Aunts and Uncles would pay them more attention.

I was such a brat. I’ve been begging for attention from a young age, even when I already had everyone’s on me at all times. When it was ripped away from me so quickly at the Garrison, where I was hardly average, it felt like a chunk of my soul had been ripped out as well. I tried as hard as I could to become better, but among great minds, I was foolish to think I could ever succeed them. Most talented to my department, however, was Keith. I grew a crush on him immediately, only adding to the self loathe festering inside me. It grew and grew, until I shattered and cried as hard as I ever had right after another failed simulation, right in front of my entire class.

Seeing as how I had tested into the Garrison and was surviving on a scholarship, I couldn’t afford to go to the school’s psychiatrist. But, I could afford to switch roommates, so that I could live with another kid who struggled with mental illness. At the same time I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder that wouldn’t be treated, Hikialani Garett had been diagnosed with anxiety. It was a program that ensured students who couldn’t afford therapy would have someone to relate to and wouldn’t go crazy from being constantly surrounded by neurotypicals who thought they were weird. And so, I met my best friend through me humiliating myself in front of my class. Which, I might’ve been placed in another one (with Hikialani), but everyone still knew. I was the kid who cried when I failed. And I couldn’t really ever change that.

“What’s wrong, buddy?”

“I’m so - L- Lance, you wouldn’t understand, you’re so skinny, and I’m so not and I’m - ”

“Dude, bro, stop talking and stop panicking. Because let’s get one thing straight. Skinny is not better than thick. Do you know how easily I get my ass kicked? And remember, I’m a cryer, so then I bawl about it afterwards. But, dude you, you’re a total hunk! You’re not fat, you, my dude, are thick and your muscles are bigger than my torso. If I wasn’t hopelessly pining after Kogane, I’d smash.”

He sniffles, wipes the tears beginning to form at the edges of his waterline. Then, reddens. “Really? You… don’t think I’m fat?”

“Dude. You’re so hot. The most hunk person I’ve ever met. In fact, new nickname, Hunk.”

He chuckles and everything’s okay. We couldn’t afford therapy. But, we have each other and for now, that’s enough.

I miss those times. But, they’re buried now. They don’t even matter. I pretend today is another normal day, go about my annoying the others, stray from Keith and Shiro because that’s what a wimp scared straight would do, and once it has all passed uneventfully, I leave with nothing. I tell Blue I will miss her. She says she’ll alert the other lions of my escape. I tell her that I don’t offer anything anymore. Go ahead. Would they even want me back?

As I’m sitting in the escape pod, getting ready for take off, I sit back and let out a final sigh. I’ve had so many great adventures with them, Shiro, Keith, Pidge, Hunk, Allura, Coran. I’ve had so much fun, been more active than ever, even struggling so hard with my insecurities, even being slowly pushed away. As much as it all hurt, it’s a hurt I’ll inevitably miss because with that hurt came something akin to familiar, with the sadness came the bouts of happiness that meant so much more, being so rare.

“Goodbye, Voltron.”

The times change, I’ve come to realize. They’re not changing in my favor here. I leave, hoping they’ll change better with my Prince.

I didn’t return to the tower that night, or for the next three days. Empowered by this new feeling, I followed the urge wherever it lead me. I wound up in an abandoned corporate building somewhere. Ironically, I realized, it had once been a place for making and storing frozen goods.

Taking in my surroundings, I ran my hands along the walls as I explored. If I was going to stay here, I needed someplace hospitable to my preferred climate that would also serve as a fortress against unwanted visitors. I rearranged the largest office to be a bedroom of sorts, then I set about defending the premises.

I strolled into the lobby, humming thoughtfully as I observed the space. I moved up to the revolving door and placed my hand on the glass. The frost began to spread over the panels, then it seemed to crawl through the cracks of the door to begin consuming the outside of the structure.

This time, when I used my power, it wasn’t as random. I didn’t feel overwhelmed, but rather… in control. With my mind, I directed the icy path of my powers until the building had been sealed off from the outside world.

“Well this is an interesting development…” I murmured to myself. Time to do some redecorating.

I decided I should update my status regarding Sombra’s sleepover party. First of all, I woke up in a closet. (How in the name of the Light did I get there?)
In my search for a bathroom I stumbled upon Sombra’s room and I saw in what state of decay it was. Chaos. Complete and utter chaos. I could not stand it and so I thought a bit of redecorating is in order.


I am sorry @thingssombrasays for the sudden colour change, but your room was way too dark for someone like you to live in there.

HWTR to saying something mean to you

A little request. ^^

***

Joji

Joji wouldn’t mean his words—he mostly lashes out at you because he’s either stressed or tired. And your nagging might set him off. “JUST SHUT THAT RUNNING MOUTH OF YOURS, YOU’RE ANNOYING!” Of course that it takes you by surprise since Joji’s usually calm, even if the situation doesn’t call for it. And when he finally tells you this…You can’t help but be hurt by this. Joji immediately realizes this and he’s sorry—you can see that on his expression. But it’s too late, the damage is done. “N-No, wait, I’m sorry, [name], I didn’t mean it!”

But you’re already running away from him, crying—you don’t even have the strength to say something back to him, since he just told you to shut up. Joji would try hard to win you back, apologizing over and over again until you’re willing to forgive him for his slip-up. “I’m just tired…” When he sees that you didn’t want to, he’d go away to plan a big surprise for you. Makes you think that he didn’t care enough to try hard enough. But he’d catch you later, smoothly handing you some flowers and ‘begging’ you to forgive him, even come up with something cheesy to make you laugh. “We can work things out.” And that’s what you might do cause you don’t want to give up on him or annoy him again with ‘that mouth of yours’

Okay but has no one ever thought of nerdy Alex Fierro???

Drawn together by Love(Arno X Assassin!Reader)

Okay, so my french maybe a little rusty; it’s been six months since I last studied the language, so here’s my best attempt. Enjoy! 

~*~

You had been friends with Arno Dorian since you had both been introduced by your fathers when you were just infants. Both his father and yours were as close as can be, usually leaving the two of you together when they needed to have their frequent meetings with the King of France.

The strong sibling bond grew as you began to spend more time with Arno than your own father. Most days, Arno and yourself would be found exploring the grounds of the most elaborate houses and castles while your fathers were busy - this however, were usually followed by a scolding from guards, servants or others, for wandering into a restricted area.

It seemed to be the habits of both of you to go looking for trouble - and to find it.

Okay so why is it that a single swing from a windcleaver held by a higher-up Yiga clan ninja one-shots me each and every time even though I have Mipha’s Grace active and ready to go and over 20 hearts, most of which are filled?????

??????

I really hate the Yiga clan. I nearly gave up when I stumbled upon a room with only a treasure chest filled with a banana. I was ready to go back out and face the music–two higher ups and two grunts in a narrow room that’s terribly hard to navigate–until I used magnesis and found the hidden doorway outside! Holy fuck that was close. Good thing those buried chests were nearby or I wouldn’t have gotten the thunder helm.

And that Kohga guy was so weak and…kinda pathetic. LOL at his reaction when you take control of his gigantic spiked metal balls! A job well-done. If I didn’t have to be so stealthy, I would have fought them all wearing the Gerudo vai clothing.

College Witch -

So this week, I started college. In Modern Literature, option journalism. So yes it has been an awesome week. I absolutely adore what I am doing. But I included a few witchy thing to help me go through this.

First thing :

- Owl - I drew the skull of an owl on my binder. Haven’t chosen it randomly. Owl represent wisdom and knowledge, intelligence and transition. You bet I need this.
- Sigils - even with all the willpower in the world, sometimes I just.. stop. I loose my focus, I get tired etc. No need to think twice, sigil here. A little draft. Then I draw it on my thumb, snap my fingers to activate it. Then I draw it on the lesson I have under the eyes to keep an eye on it.
- Crystals - yes, ofc cannot do otherwise. Always had some either in my pocket or in my pencil case so that if needed, I just take it in my hands. The main one I have for school are my tiger’s eye, jade, emerald, citrine and manganocalcite.
- Social - well I didn’t know where to say this but the first person I talked to and hang out with is actually.. A wiccan witch. What were the possibilities that I stumbled upon a witch??
- Plants - I need support and presence and things to cheer me up to do my stuff. Who’s better than those little dear cactus or succulent etc I have around my room?
- Basil - Talking about plants, I stumbled upon a plant and felt drawn to it. It looked like a kind of lavender but smelt otherwise. Couldn’t help, took some home. Here’s the first time I found Holy Basil. (Didn’t even know it existed!) And there’s a whole list of so many positive properties! It brings joy to your being. It represents harmony, luck etc. Aw!
- Beverages - Where students would be if there wasn’t coffee right. I mostly used it to banish tiredness by storing counterclockwise and encourage hard work. How it helped! But cannot forget tea. Mostly drank Oolong for deep concentration.
- Tarot - So it was the week I received the gorgeous Wooden Tarot. And I did this spread to get to know it. It’s like a better version of me. And it pushes me to work harder toward my goals. (He basically told me it and not only once)
- Books - Just because we all know some moments to escape right? Currently reading “The Gifting”. It’s about a girl who sees things. In her dream too. And things in her dreams happen in reality etc. Dear gods why am I such an awful storyteller.
- Sense - funny thing, well not really but I don’t how come but my bottle of water happened to be open in my bag and I was walking. And I sensed a few drops on my leg. But it was more than sunny, I didn’t understand. And I just opened my bag because I KNEW. No the water didn’t go through the bag, it was leather. And catastrophe avoided thanks to.. That weird extra sense?
- Weird - ok odd part now, I just.. hear someone’s or somethings calling my name. Not only once or twice. But often actually. It happens when I’m alone. But, I absolutely don’t know if I’m loosing my mind and having hallucinations or? Can’t really explain. (last things I’ve been hearing those past few days : a baby crying in the house; someone saying “never enough”, broken glass falling) Please help.
- Self care - I’m an awfully stressed and anxious person. And one of the things that translates it this week is : touching my face. Scratching it. Making my pimples worse. So, it’s horrible. I have scars and bruises all over my cheeks. Some things that will help your skin : lemon, aloe vera and honey. Really really really.

Ok I am stopping this post now. It took me a lot of motivation to finally and actually write it. And i am exhausted. So guys please, any normal life tips or witchcraft related spells to help me go through life at school and at home and stay focused and cheer me up is welcomed. You will tell me that I just made a long list about that? I have a fucked up mind that need to be challenged and motivated all the time with different techniques.

Hope school was great for you!

Selling EXO albums!

Hi there~
I’m moving out in two weeks and whilst I was tidying up my room I stumbled upon my old EXO albums. Since I’m not a stan anymore, I figured that I might as well pass them on to others. The albums ARE opened, but haven’t been listened to. They are in good condition, so I’ll be selling them at a price that is a bit lower than what they originally costed at KPOPmart.
I live in Scandinavia, so the shipping-price will depend based on where you live.
The four albums I have are:
“EXOLOGY CHAPTER 1 | The Lost Planet”
- original price: 30.20$
- my price: 20$
- additional info: this includes 2 cd’s, a world tour poster, 10 pictures of the members with a message written on the back.
It’s a huge photobook with HQ pictures from the concerts.
- Damage: none.
“EXO-K mini album MAMA”
- original price: 11.40$
- my price: 4.50$
- additional info: this includes 1 cd, 1 all-member photocard and the photobook.
- Damage: there’s some markings on the packaging - it’s not that visible and I’ll send you pictures of it so you can see it for yourself. This is also why the price is a bit lower than the EXO-M one.
“EXO-M mini album MAMA”
- original price: 11.40$
- my price: 6$
- additional info: this includes 1 cd, 1 all-member photocard and the photobook.
- Damage: none.
“EXO XOXO Kiss version”
- original price: 16.90$
- my price: 14$
- additional info: this is the Korean version. It’s a photobook-album, which means it’s filled with pictures of ALL members (my OT12 heart) and has printed handwritten lyrics of the songs in it.
Damage: there is one little marking on the front. Again, I will send pictures so you can see for yourself.

!I WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE THAY MAY HAPPEN AFTER I HAVE SHIPPED THEM!
I will have to receive the payment BEFORE I ship the albums.
You have to be comfortable with giving out your address to me and if you’re under the age of 18 you have to get your parents permission.
Message me if you’re interested and we’ll figure something out :)

30 Construction Workers Of Share Their Stories Of Building Secret Rooms And Hidden Compartments For Clients


1. Whoever thought a principal would ask for a secret room?

I used to do some construction work on schools during the summer. The principal wanted, in his closet, a door to slide up where he could keep a safe for special school records, and a mini-fridge. Although it wasn’t very big or that cool, it was the coolest work I ever was involved in that summer. Plus, who wouldn’t want a mini-fridge hidden in their wall?

2. A casual survival bunker.

It was an underground survival bunker accessed through a hidden door in the back of a garage. It had an additional exit by means of an underground tunnel that lead almost 100 feet in the bordering forest. The strangest thing about it was that it was a survival bunker that he had us wire with outlets and lights, despite there not being any type of back-up/off-the-grid power. Makes me think that he actually had an alternative purpose for the shelter.

3. A secret, unusually insulated room.

Yes, we worked on what was supposedly going to be a hidden/secret walk-in safe in the basement. This room was heavily reinforced.

Normally, walls around doors are framed using wood. This doorframe was solid reinforced concrete. The room was a square attached to the outside of the basement, so all four walls were concrete. We poured concrete above it, so the ceiling was concrete. (Very unusual!) We also poured the floor.

So, it was six sides made of concrete. Since it was attached to the outside, there was no sign that it existed from the inside. No ventilation. No wiring from what I saw.

I never saw the finished product, but the owner was keeping it a secret, and wouldn’t explain much about it. So another contractor finished it off.

4. They found a REALLY creepy secret room in a farmhouse.

A friend of our family bought a huge old farmhouse after the couple living in it passed away. They were doing some remodeling and found a hidden door in the back of a closet. It was only a couple feet tall, so you had to crawl through it. It went to a medium sized room with no windows that no one knew about. The only thing in the room was a bed, which would have had to be in there before the walls were put up. It was definitely creepy.

5. A really cool way to confuse house guests.

My parent’s house has a “secret” room that’s behind a bookshelf in their master bedroom. The reason I put quotations around “secret” is because this hidden room is wall-to-wall open window.

So basically, you could hide from someone inside of the house, but if they happen to walk around outside, you appear to be in a normal room.

6. And these aren’t as uncommon as you’d think.

Yep. All the time. People that can afford it pay a lot for panic rooms and hidden armories. Swinging bookcases, doors in wall paneling, you name it. People with that much money usually have something to protect.

7. Strangely enough, more people have swords than you would think.

Friend of the family works as a custom cabinetmaker. Most of his jobs involve him making secret compartments for rich clients. Mainly desks with a secret place that can hide guns, keys, ledgers and swords (oddly enough a lot of people request that),

8. A millionaire’s secret attic room.

I’ve been painting houses since I was 15. One was in a millionaire’s summer home. On the fourth floor of the house there was a closet on the same wall as the elevator. A section of drywall came away and lead to behind the elevator. There was a wooden ladder that went up and down the entire house; at the very top was a trap door that lead to a small room that was about 6 by 6 feet. It had windows and vents that could be opened or sealed completely. Pretty sure it was for their son to hotbox.

9. Probably the creepiest secret room out there.

Never built one, but I did find one in a house I was doing some plumbing work in once. This was an expensive condo, and they had a secret office that had a secret one-way mirror looking into the GUEST SHOWER. Creepy as fuck, man.

10. You’d be surprised how many people get secret rooms to grow weed.

Carpenter. I built a grow-room for a guy’s medical marijuana in Vermont. An alarm was wired directly to the state police barracks in the event of a burglary.

11. How to mess with future house owners of a home with secret rooms.

My dad is a doctor, and does a lot of construction at home on his free time. This one time he was moving a wall, making one room smaller and another bigger. He was putting an entire-wall-bookshelf kind of thing in the smaller room, and just to fuck with future homeowners he snatched one of those plastic skeletons from his job and hid it in the space between the bookshelf and the wall.

I expect headlines sometime in the future.

12. No big deal; just a NARNIA CLOSET.

I built a Narnia closet for someone. Their daughter had one request for the new house: she had a built An armoire, white and modern looking with nice shelving units on the right side and a bigger opening on the left. However, when you pushed the back of the left, closet side, it opened up into an actual closet that was about 5×10 feet on the inside, not too shabby at all. Was a pretty fun build, albeit somewhat challenging.

13. Found awesome secret rooms in a university frat house.

Worked in IT, not construction. Anyway we needed to do some work on a network switch we had stashed on the third floor of this building on a well-known university’s campus. You opened a closet and climbed up a ladder. The 3rd floor was a hallway with dorm rooms, bathroom and showers. It led to an open living area with a fireplace. The building was an old fraternity house and had been converted to the international house on campus. It was cool. There was writing on the wall from some of the students writing baseballs scores down from the 50s while listening to a game. It was like stepping into a time machine. Old desk, beds, etc. Found an old zenith terminal from 1979 that still booted up. I’m sure there a lot more to checkout, but it was a little creepy to be there alone.

14. There’s a secret door that looks like a mouse hole in this guy’s apartment (with photo).

Not a construction worker, but in my old house one of the bedrooms had a small opening to the crawlspace that was made to looked like a large mouse hole.

Here’s a picture.

15. Sooo this guy obviously went to Hogwarts.

I am not a construction worker. I attended a private boarding school when I was younger the school itself was 200+ years old and the castle it was built around was much older. Upon exploring me and a few other friends found an entrance to a system of tunnels that ran beneath the school. The tunnels were used as maintenance tunnels for the old heating system that was once run from a gas boiler system. Originally we thought that was why they were built. We began trying to map out the tunnels and used to spend hours underneath the school during study time/ night roaming around with a measuring tape drawing it to scale. We never completed the map due to the systems enormity.

As we got further and further into the tunnels we learnt that these were much older than just the gas boiler. A new, cement tunnels seemed to extend about a kilometer in radius. Past a kilometer the tunnels got older and more dangerous. We found that they extended all the way out to a pavilion in our school. These passages were also in cement but were very clearly much older. Most of my time as a 14-year-old was spent roaming around them. It gave us passages into locked rooms, the castle (banned grounds), to the forests etc. We decorated a lot of the walls down there in shoe polish and stolen art paints. We would even smoke down there a mere few feet below the headmaster’s office.

16. Parents tried to build him a secret room; ended up screwing him.

Funny story, when I was a kid. My parents were designing their dream home, they asked me as a child of about 8 at the time, what I would want my room to be like, I didn’t care about my room but pleaded for a secret room connected to my bedroom, to my amazement they agreed…

Little did I know that they were about to ruin my fucking dreams. The house was built, my bedroom and secret room was made, I was so fucking excited to finally see it… They blindfolded me and led me into my room and asked me to try to find the secret room, after much searching I finally found it, it was hidden behind a swinging bookcase and it blew my fucking mind.

I quickly went inside… Only to see a full sized door at the far end of my little secret room, upon opening it I was outside in the hallway next to my bedroom door… THE FUCK PARENTS!? I tried, I swear I tried but the amount of times visitors stumbled upon me in my secret room thinking it was a bathroom in the hallway or a bedroom…

My childhood dreams were ruined.. RUINED!!!

17. The ol’ push-a-stone, open-a-door trick.

I’m a pool builder and we were asked to build a hidden poolroom for the equipment and other random things. We had stonemasons turn the whole underneath of the house into a secret room and blended the door into the wall. To open the door you needed to push a stone and the door opened automatically.

18. You probably don’t want to get on this guy’s bad side…

Residential contractor here. A client once asked that I add a 4×6 room next to the master that would be “just big enough to allow someone to ‘calm down’ if they were being ‘bad.’” Specs had no windows. Brick walls. Double thick door, etc. He gave off that creepy as hell vibe, but you know, money.

Anyway, the job was going fine until we ran out of red bricks and started using those blue and yellow ones. He lost his shit! Cancelled contract and never looked back.

19. Found a secret office in the house she just bought.

Just moved into a house that was built in the 70s. The previous owners custom built it, and the architect was the man’s old frat buddy. Custom stuff everywhere (trash chute straight from the kitchen into the garage wheelie bin!).

When we first looked at the house, we really loved it, but there was no office space that my husband could use for his music stuff. It was the only disappointing thing about the house, but since everything else was so perfect, we went ahead and put in the offer.

When we were doing another walkthrough with our parents, we showed them the walk up attic, which is pretty cool too. When I turned around to leave, I noticed a wall of insulation that looked…different. If you push the insulation to one side, a doorknob appears. And behind it is the secret office.

Coolest house ever.

20. This guy might be living in Being John Malkovich?

I once built a whole level of a room that was half the size of the others. It was a half room, I don’t know why they wanted a half room, but it was not accessible with stairs, and the only way to get there was by stopping the elevator.

21. This guy got away with living in a hidden, 4-bedroom condo for a year.

Some years back I lived in a pub in the UK. It had previously had a floor, which was dedicated accommodation for staff – which was then condemned by the fire inspector.

The owners sealed up the staircase/doors to this floor.

I cut a passage to it from my bedroom and had a hidden 4-bedroom condo in the west end of London for about a year.

Then it went horribly wrong…

22. This guy has a secret sex dungeon. Because, why not?

Wife and I had a secret, soundproof “sex dungeon” type room built adjacent to our bedroom. The reason for the room is that we have various devices in there that are impractical to disassemble and put away when we have friends over (or the day we have kids and still want to enjoy our fun discreetly).

We had some devices installed when we built the room, such as a large metal cage and other restraining devices. The people who built the room probably asked us a hundred times if we were sure we didn’t plan to abduct people. The architect nearly dropped the project when I jokingly asked him to make sure there’d be an electric outlet to plug a chainsaw.

23. Big-shot CEO needed a big-shot way to smoke his weed.

I used to work construction over the summers in high school and within just a few miles of where I grew up there are 20,000+ square foot homes…anyways this one client (who was pretty well know for being a CEO of a large corporation) requested a secret self-contained smoking room. Complete with secret entrance, a bathroom, cedar paneling, self-contained heat and A/c, and an industrial sized smoke-eater. Along with hideaway shelving that would store an endless amount of mason jars full of pot. Also has some crazy vaporizer as well. He would have meetings upstairs in his underwear and robe whole being high as f**k.

24. Just a secret room for girls to get urinated on! Why do you ask?

One time we converted part of the basement into a “piss dungeon,” where young girls would be urinated on again and again by older men. Why attractive young women submit themselves to this stuff willingly is beyond me, but then again I don’t really understand BDSM and dom/sub.

25. A secret apartment that could very well harbor criminals.

Plenty of times. There was one I never saw the finished stages of that was basically an entire apartment accessible only by a small hatch in a closet. Either the homeowner was planning to harbor criminals, or a mistress, a man in an iron mask, or just really wanted to be able to get away from his family. Hope it wasn’t like an HH Holmes thing.

Did a lot of mansions and this wasn’t insanely common but far more than I expected. There was one builder that did a lot of these houses who managed to find a retired electric chair that he kept in a hidden room. He ‘joked’ that when his kids were bad he would make them sit in it for few hours. It didn’t have power running to it but still.

26. A secret, extra room, that looks exactly like the rest of the house, only half the size.

Not a secret room, but a friend of mine had a weird compartment in her house. In the middle of the dining room, there was a door that was about half the size of a normal door, maybe about 3 ½ feet tall, same style as the rest of the doors in the house, knob in the same place halfway down as any other door. It led to a room, about 3′ x 5′, same height. It came wallpapered and carpeted similar to the rest of the house, but definitely intentionally decorated–my friend and her family never changed it. It was just this weird, half-sized room/finished crawl space.

27. A hidden underground swimming pool!

Yeah, working on a big house that this eccentric couple owned, there was a secret underground Olympic swimming pool, we installed a pool table that came out of the ground floor. Basically dug a big hole, some other dudes sorted all the pneumatics and electrics. Don’t know what the table looked like at the end, but his swimming pool was dope.

28. A house with two secret rooms (and photos)!

My house has two secret rooms and here are the photos of it in construction (almost finished). It is off of my movie room behind one of two black velvet curtains.

The main secret room is huge (20 foot by 9 foot), large enough for five or more people to escape tornadoes.

Ceiling and walls are 18 inch thick concrete. The ceiling also has a steel roof with 10 inches of concrete poured atop it.

All wired, vent and return, internet wired. Nothing wireless works in this room. We some times call it the black hole because the bars on your phone just disappear when you enter.

The room is finished now and decorated (like rest of house). It gives it less of a creepy vibe. Enjoy.

29. Found a secret room complete with bloodstains.

A house I lived in when I was younger had a secret little passage. My step-brother jumped out from a mirror one day and I nearly soiled myself. Turns out the mirror swung open to a passage under some pipes and then into the electric (or whatever) cupboard in the hallway. You wouldn’t know because of the pipes, but there surely was a way around and through.

Weirdest part was that there was a gigantic bloodstain on the floorboards, near the mirror. I told myself that someone waited behind the mirror and then jumped out and stabbed some unsuspecting soul.

30. A secret compartment for a pro wrestler to stash his drugs.

We put false vents in the walls for a pro wrestler to stash his ‘roids in.

For sixpenceee creepypastaisrad fuckyeahspoopyshit and their followers

Anywhere by Ego

I don’t know why I was doing this I was so nervous. Why do I listen to Peach. “But Ava it’ll be fun” she says “live a little” she says, now her punk ass at the house with Dame punk ass. These hoes ain loyal I thought, as I adjusted my confidence and my titties. The 36Ds lookin right. This Mansion was huge and kinda creepy looking. I had never been to a place like this before and was kinda pissed that I was alone. At least my mask and outfit was on point. Strapless lace lil black dress with matching lace Venetian mask. The 5in black leather heels, with studded straps completed my flatline look…cause you know I be killin’. I hand the checked my makeup one more time and then got out my car. I was silently greeted by a hooded and masked Valet. I began to get excited as I watched the night began. After handing this mystery person my keys, I walked up the ascending staircase. Why are there so many .. And I pause as I confront the entrance. Huge doors that could’ve very well been the gates to Heaven itself. Beautiful stained glass and gold detailing. There, I was met by another hooded and masked individual. I must have forgotten the rules of tonight’s little soirée…1. No talking, 2. No talking and 3. No talking. The individual extended his hand and I know what he want. My invitation, if you didn’t have one, you could not enter. This was an by invitation only event. I was surprised Peach was able to get me invited, she’s always doing some different shit. After giving up the invitation, the individual opens the door, and once inside, I’m absolutely speechless. The mansion was beyond enchanting, so much so that I felt as if I was dreaming. Second, there were masked people everywhere, some in nothing but masks. My nerves began to get the best of me. I search for a place to get a drink. After several minutes of aimless searching, I finally stumble upon a room with a bar. Everything is self serve, so I pour myself some Goose. Just as I began to set the bottle down, a tall gentleman in an all black suit sudden appears beside me. He is wearing a full mask, so all I can see when I look at him is his eyes. He reaches for the bottle and his hand slowly grazes mine. I almost break the rules. He slowly and seductively reaches to his mouth with one finger as if to motion shhhhhhhhh. For the love of me this had to be most strangely sexual thing ever. He poured his glass, cheers with me then as sudden as he appeared, disappeared. Kinda disappointed, I continue to sip and explore. The decor is this place was outstanding. Marble this, gold that…crystal everywhere. I notice that people are descending off to different rooms, so I try and see if I can find a room. Peeking in doors as I walk past, I can see people getting have all kinds of sexual adventures.


So I wrote this and wanted to invite any eagar writer to finish it…I enjoy seeing how other’s minds work. Please post your response here, if you can. Thanks❤❤ No rules…just run with it and have fun💋
