i didn't know what liminal spaces were before and your midnight hotel post was the most awesomely creepy thing and now im balls deep in a liminal spaces google search and i need more about this

oh thank you so much!!
Liminal spaces are absolutely my most favourite thing and i have a headcanon that it’s a classification of magic to be able to sort of cross into them but anyway

I’ve been thinking about the midnight hotel liminal space thing so much and just like

random flickering shadows everywhere?

weird violet mist seeping out from under doors and sending icy chills up your spine

guests dreaming of skies opening and blood rain and shadowy eldritch horrors seen through windows and out of the corner of their eyes

Anton looks out of the window and oh! i guess there are two moons tonight that’s fun

glitches in time - thought you were listening to music for 10 minutes? well nope! that was 7 hours.

sleep paralysis but was it really sleep paralysis or was there actually something in my room last night?

But then the people are the worst. Sometimes you can’t tell at first but you talk to them for a little while and something is just….WRONG with them. like their dimensions are off or they just seem a bit hazy around the edges. sometimes they speak more like they’re mimicking human speech rather than it coming naturally. Their smiles are a little too sinister to be normal.

Shudder’s a hardened war veteran and his guests can be wanted criminals but these people are scarier than anything they’ve ever spoken to. The dawning realisation that the woman you’re making small talk to might not be a fucking person??? Terrifying.
