it’s so weird hearing americans talk about Target© as some kind of semi-religious holy space of reasonably priced goods and services, bc in it’s short, fever-dream existence up here in the frozen north it was… Not Good. 

in my experience with the three (3) i went to in the surrounding area it was. uh. you know when you step into a place and there’s nothing immediately noticeably wrong but you can just Feel that this is a Bad Space? like the kind of space where if you catch a glimpse of your mother walking down an aisle and turning a corner you know it’s a demonic trick and if you follow her it’ll lead you down a path to a dark space you can’t return from?

or you go in with your friend who’s right next to you but you get a text from them saying “hey i’m in the shoe aisle, you should come here” and you know it’s a trap from the devil? like other things:

  • only half of the dim, washed out, often flickering fluorescent lights were lit at any given time, usually only every-other set, leaving these valleys of darkness that made entire aisles inaccessible for fear of shadow people latching on to your soul like a dark passenger. 
  • entire sections were just Empty. empty shelves with no product, never any employees filling them up, no boxes waiting to be unpacked, no signs saying what should be there.
  • no employees at all actually? wandering around the store even though the parking lots were full and you walked in with a group of 20 or so felt so lonely. you could walk the whole place and it was dead silent and the only other “people” around always were several aisles away with their back turned, unmoving. there was always only one cashier and there was never anyone in her line.
  • there was never any music on or announcements played? another place that does this are all the dollar trees in my area and it gives me anxiety. i feel like i’m being hunted, like i have to hold my breath and listen for the footsteps of beasts in other aisles. 
  • the fitting rooms had a strange, dark energy to them. it felt like if you ever used them, whatever universe you closed the door on would not be the same one you stepped out into when you were done. the washrooms also contained this same dark energy.
  • passing the employees-only doors felt like wandering too close to a bears den. the glass windows never showed anything going on back there, no racks of product, no employees milling around. it was just pitch black, complete darkness. a hungry void.
  • leaving a target was the same disorienting feeling as leaving a dark theatre and exiting into the light. sound and colour and feeling rush back in. you feel like you can breathe again. a weight is lifted from your shoulders. you can’t remember any of the time you spent inside the target.

it is my sincere belief that the targets in canada never existed. the storefronts were put up, yes, but the stores themselves were vast empty caverns filled with dark dreams and sinister interlopers attracted to the malignant leftover energies from zellers. passing through the automatic doors was meant to teleport us to the nearest american location, but something went wrong and we entered an unnatural zone halfway between the upside down and whatever it was that happened in the langoliers. 

i believe the balls outside target are carefully crafted and powerfully attuned magical artifacts that keep up the illusion known as Target©, but were incorrectly spaced in canada due to a mixup between the metric and imperial systems of measurement, and that is why the brief twilight zone episode that was canadian target collapsed virtually overnight.

Hey there! First, I love this blog; you are doing Chuck's work here. I wondered if you had any suggestions for fics similar in tone to Redemption Road's Back in Black episode or Bring Up the Deep. Canon!verse, and like set in creepy towns where people are kind of. . . off and there's just a general uneasy vibe. I practically live in your case!fic tag, so if you can think of any that AREN'T there already. Thank you so much! All my love.

Most of our canon fics with that creepy town vibe can be found in our case fic tag, but there are a few that are also scattered in other areas. Since there are over 100 posts on the case fic tag with a mix of canon (SU) and AU fics, we decided to pull all our canon-based creepy town fics together here! We also added a section for canon fics with really wild imagery and a few of our favorite super AU fics with that creepy vibe. Enjoy! 


I. Check out these tags and previous asks.

II. Canon fics with creepy towns. (Most of these are on our case fic tag)


III. Canon fics with great hell/purgatory/zombie wasteland imagery


IV. Super AU fics with creepy towns. (Many of these are on our Southern Gothic Ask)

Hey, gee wiz Doc! How do you- how do you do the time traveling?

Boy, I’m glad you asked, Little Tommy.

Well, to keep it to the basics, nowadays when the time car travels through time, it creates a new timeline and forever leaves behind the one it came from.

So in this example, from an outsider’s perspective, Timeline A, the time car just disappears and is never heard from again. But in the new timeline, Timeline B, it- it reappears in the future… or appears to come out of nowhere if in the past.

It gets a little more complicated after that… anyway we can all agree the time car is awesome.

Maybe you could write something about Mick accidentally burning Ray and not being happy about it at all, which then confuses him?

((YES WHY NOT START WITH RAY BEING HURT THAT’S FINE O_O ) 

Read on AO3 Temptations

Mick doesn’t want to. It’s not even like it was before, with Mick being way too fascinated with the flame, not being able to pull his eyes away from it, and just quietly watching it burn. 

This moment is completely different. Mick’s focused – or as focused as he can be with these things crawling all around. They need to get out fast and right now. There is not possible way the four of them can take on the whole pack of Morlocks.

“Back to the jump ship!” Mick yells when he sees Amaya press her hand against her necklace – the bluish shape of a gorilla appearing over her and Mick frowns, before he presses the side of his gun against her chest.

lam-baka  asked:

I was looking at your post about the ghost levels and such, and I was wondering: what level would the Observants be?

That is an excellent question. I’ve thought about it, and it’s really hard to say. We don’t see the Observants do much. They can obviously fly and they apparently watch over time like Clockwork does, though their powers are more limited in that regard. Aside from that, we don’t really know what powers they have or how strong their personalities are.

Officially, I’d say their level is “unknown.” If you want a guess, though, I’d say they could be Clockwork’s minions. It makes sense given their job is like a lower level version of Clockwork’s (meaning they’re only capable of seeing one timeline, not all the possibilities). It also explains why they all look identical and don’t really seem to have individual personalities. The problem with that is that they seem to boss Clockwork around a lot, but Poindexter’s minions bully him, so maybe that’s just part of their role. To act as really bad, annoying advisors to Clockwork.

They could also be Level 10 ghosts themselves, but I’m more hesitant to say that since I can’t imagine a large number of people would’ve essentially imagined a bunch of floating eyeballs that watch over time into existence. But then again, The Langoliers exists, so what do I know about human imagination?

I’d probably lean more toward them being minions, though, which would put them at Level 3. Powerful Level 3s, yes, but Clockwork’s a powerful ghost, and minions can be very powerful if their ghost is.

BOOOOY, I’ve found my childhood.

One day, when I was 5 or 6, my aunt gave me a book my cousin had grown up from already. It was “The Emperor of Shadows” (”Император Теней”) by Roman Kanushkin, with illustrations… Some of which you can see here.

The book itself is no less scary and gorgeous as the last black winged unicorn with fire-rainbow mane. It’s about a little boy and… whatever a thing his friend is, who travel the parallel (old and dying) universe trying to  save their uncle and the world itself. There were mad from grieving Restlesses, a langolier-like thing which eats the time and space itself, the wind which turns friends into enemies, insane creatures, Lovecraftian setting and lots of other creepy as the Old One’s shit things. In addition, the atmosphere was so melancholic that it could rival Dark Souls. And yep, it was for kids. Should I mention that it was my absolutely favorite book back then?

What memories.
