What is meditation basically? Lots of people will tell you that meditation is supposed to calm your mind.
But what will really meditation do to you is that you’ll be able to CONTROL your mind. Or at least you’ll be better at it, which is something huge, believe me. And controlled mind is a big tool in magic work.
There are 3 basic types of meditation.
1. Just observe your mind. This is something that you can do when you have time. Sit on your couch, lie on your bed - whatever feels good for you - that’s the key. Close your eyes and just try to observe what’s your mind up to. The important thing is - don’t try to think. Just let your mind exist. It almost feels like falling asleep, actually. Once you try it you can feel how freeing that moment is.
2. Be aware. Yes, awareness of your body and later, of what is happening around you. For example, try to be aware of your breathing. Focus on how you breathe. Just feel how your nostrils feel the air coming in and out. Tap on your forehead with your finger and feel the spot. Be aware of the sensation. Focus on it like nothing else exist. Just the sensation you feel on your skin.
3. Focus on one thing and one thing only with your mind. As I always say, start with something easy like an orange. Orange is easy to imagine in your mind. Picture its structure. Picture its taste on your tongue. Picture how it feels when you touch it. Basically, put together a picture of everything you know about the orange and keep mind picturing it. Feel the orange for as long as possible. If you lose your concentration, it’s alright and you did nothing wrong - we’re humans, not robots. Just try again :)
Questions you may ask:
Q: What if I don’t have time for meditation? I’m busy with school and work!
A: Well, of course we live in a world that needs our presence. And number 2 and 3 can be done while you wait for the bus, while you’re stuck in traffic jam, and so on. Don’t lose hope, just because you’re busy :)
Q: Is it really necessary to meditate?
A: Nothing is necessary, it’s your choice. But the truth is, if you choose to meditate, you’ll be able to control your mind better and it’s not only helpful in magic work. It can help you if you have trouble sleeping and so on. Helps with anxiety, too, btw.
Q: How does meditation help control mind?
A: Number 1 can teach you:
- how to be aware of what’s going on in your mind on the level you can’t reach yet. Later, you can use this new entry to your mind and analyze your psyche better.
- how to not fall asleep when you try astral traveling before going to bed.
- lucid dreaming :)
Number 2 can teach you:
- how to be aware of what your body wants and needs even though it can’t speak.
- how to be aware of what is happening around you in a crowd - kind of good skill to have these days, sadly.
- how to feel if something paranormal is happening around you.
Number 3 can teach you:
- how to use your willpower as a tool for your magic work.
- power of good imagination raises IQ and plain common sense.
Remember that if something isn’t going well for the first time you try, it doesn’t mean it’ll be like this forever. Things can better with practice. So don’t worry. We were all lame shits when we started.

Okay, so you’ve seen a few scary movies and enjoyed them, and now you’re looking to expand your horror prowess. Maybe you’ve been reading/listening to a lot of creepypasta, and you feel like you’re ready to take the plunge. Or maybe you just have a feeling that you’d like horror, but have no idea where to start.
I’ve been a huge fan of all things creepy and scary for years. I was just reading an article called, “Horror Gems You Haven’t Seen Yet” and realized that I actually had seen almost every film on the list, so I guess that makes me an expert. So, my new baby horror fans, allow me to introduce you to the genre.
Ok so imagine in the spn world there's a "french men of letters" any headcanons as a french xD ?
Hi anon ^^
I LOVE YOUR QUESTION!! OMG, I’m gonna have so much fin with this one xD Ok, let’s go!
1) Richelieu founded the French Men of Letters in 1635, the same year as the
Académie Française (French Academy). They were the biggest and best well kept secret of the French
kingdom, then of the French Republic. They work on their own, have “carte blanche” but secretly receive money from the French government because they are useful to the nation. They never appear on any register though.
2) Working during the French Revolution was a pain in the ass but things got better with Napoleon who gave The Men of Letters an unlimited funding after his troops were attacked by a bunch of demons in 1804.
3) Gustave Eiffel was a Man of Letters and so were the Chevalier d’Eon, Marie Curie (poor Pierre never knew about his wife’s activities), Madame Yvonne de Gaulle (wife of General de Gaulle) even if they all denied these allegations.
4) The top of the Eiffel Tower (built by Gustave Eiffel, what a coincidence…) is an observation post that is used by the MOL to spot any suspect/paranormal activity happening in the French capital city. The top of Notre-Dame de la Garde, a famous church in Marseille, is also an observation spot.
5) Rumors says that The MOL’s HQ is located in an abandoned subway station on Line 10 of the Paris subway, Mabillon, or in the complex network of underground tunnels right below the Paris Opéra.
6) The Phantom of the Opera wasn’t a legend. The French Men of Letters
helped hunters to catch him in 1881. Gaston Leroux, the son of a hunter, wrote the whole story in 1910, inspired by the stories told by his dad.
7) Only a few members of the organization know about the location of a gate of hell, somewhere on the French territory. In 1999, the gate of hell was almost opened but the MOL prevented the worse. The brief opening “only” caused a series of cyclones over the country.
8) The Cafés are the biggest information network of the French Men of Letters. They are their eyes and ears and the French “garçons” are the best informants you could hope for. The Cafés being replaced by Starbucks coffees and hipsters bars are currently a big problem.
9) The French MOL stopped the big vampire invasion of 1992. You’ve never
heard about it? It’s normal, it’s because they stopped it, silly.
10) The Parisians Men of Letters are hated by the rest of the French Men of
Letters because the Paris Division is just a bunch of “pretentious
assholes” but the Paris Division doesn’t care because they despise the
other Men of Letters anyway. They are better than the others and they know it.
Please. The rivalry was
set aside during the previously mentioned 1992 vampire invasion because they had to collaborate on this big problem.
11) At 12:00, everybody stops their work/hunt/whatever because it’s lunch. We are not savages.
12) The Parisian MOL are often late to MOL meetings because the local trains are always late and because the traffic on the Périphérique (a belt highway around Paris) is just terrible.
13) The MOL are on strike at least twice a year because “we can’t work in
these conditions!! I mean, look at the Brits and all the stuff they have!! It’s an absolute scandal!!”. These strikes granted, among other things, a new Nespresso coffee machine, a high speed internet connection in MOL’s bunkers around the country, two weeks of paid vacations, a grenade launcher per employee and new silver bullets.
14) In July 2006, the French MOL briefly stopped their diplomatic relations with the Italian Men of Letters after the World Cup Finale because of the Zidane/Materazzi incident . It was Materazzi’s fault anyway, a position that wasn’t shared by the Italian branch, hence a brief cold in the relation that was put to an end in early August of the same year when a bunch of demons were causing troubles at the French-Italian border.
15) The vault of the French Men of Letters contains object such as a possessed apple, the one that terrified Annecy in 1585, the armor of Joan of Arc, a letter by Victor Hugo to a newspaper revealing the existence of the Men of letters and that was intercepted just in time (nice try Vic), the body of a Korrigan and of the Beast of Gévaudan, a gun by Casimir Lefaucheux, french gunsmith, that has the same property as The Colt (unfortunately, there is no more bullet left). Not to forget the body of the shape shifter that briefly replaced Marie-Antoinette in 1782.
16) They heard about the Winchesters but thank fuck, the elder one is afraid of flying and will never come to France. The last thing the MOL needs are these guys in the streets of Paris or Lyon (we have enough problems, thank you very much). There’s no space to park the Impala anyway.
Oklahoma City, OK, USA: We have a neighborhood in one of the nicer parts of town named Carey Place. In that neighborhood, there’s a house called “The Hatchet House,” called so for the hatchets on its window shutters and the legend surrounding it.
Legend goes that years ago, a young girl named Carey was kidnapped from her school and killed with a hatchet. Most incarnations of the story say that her body was left on the porch of the Hatchet House, which is now painted red due to the fact they couldn’t clean the blood off the pavement (I have always heard the body was on the driveway but her head was left in a windowsill flowerbox, but I can’t seem to find many other people who’ve heard that version.)
The residents of the neighborhood say they haven’t seen ghosts, but sometimes hear “weird noises.” A lot of college/high school students visit the neighborhood and try to spark paranormal happenings (especially around Halloween.) My mom used to tell me that, back in the 1970s, she and her brother parked outside the house late at night and saw the ghost of a little girl in one of the windows, until the homeowner walked by, causing it to disapparate.
nothing is more wild and exciting than having a 12th House mercury (in pisces too I’ll add), bilingual dreams, sleepwalking, being a a host for paranormal entities while I sleep you know, all that jazz i luv it
Ronald Tammen, Jr. was a 19-year-old student at Miami University in Oxford Ohio when he disappeared.
On April 19th, 1953, Ron was in his dorm at Fisher Hall. At 8:30 PM, Ron went to the dorm Mom to get bed sheets that he had requested earlier in the day, then he went back to his room to study psychology. When his roommate returned later around 10PM, Tammen was nowhere to be found. The radio was playing, Ron’s desk light was on, and his psychology book was open on his desk. His wallet, clothing, and car keys were still in the room, and his car was in the parking lot where he left it. His money in his bank account went unclaimed. Though it was snowing outside, he did not take his coat. When his roommate found him gone, he originally did not report him missing because he figured he went to spend the night at the Delta Tau Delta fraternity where he pledged. He was finally reported missing the next day when he didn’t return.
Ron has never been seen again.
This case gets a little weird as Ron had specifically requested new sheets because someone had put a dead fish in his bed earlier that day. A few weeks before, he went to a doctor’s office, and randomly asked to have his blood type tested. The place he was residing- Fisher Hall- was the former site of a mental asylum, leading some to believe something paranormal happened to him. Theories of Ron’s disappearance range from abduction to amnesia, to ghostly activity, or even his fraternity or the government being involved, but authorities say there is no evidence leading them to believe anything concrete.
When Ron went missing he was 5′10″, and 175 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. He had a muscular build, and was on the wrestling team at his university.
Anyone with additional information or questions regarding this case should contact Butler County Sheriff’s Office at (513) 785-1300.
You ran into him by accident at the candy store. You were shoved out the way by some random woman who wanted the very last bag of fancy rich dark chocolate and macadamia nuts pack. You were smashed up against a firm chest as he fell backward, he too was shocked by the sudden feeling of someone falling on him as he leans back to protect himself but also balance the person.
Which led to you falling on top of him with a jolting impact that caused you to accidentally kiss him. He looks up at you as you look down at him, both shocked.
My out abruptly stood up, shaking slightly as the embarrassment hits you full on. People stood around staring, minus the lady who pushed you as she was now checking out her candy.
“I’m sorry..” You said as you held out a shaky hand as he grabs it and stands up, you struggled pulling him up. His cheeks by now were crimson red as he bows to you apologizing.
“I’m sorry as well. But must I say, your lips are sweet? Were you made from the finest of cocoa?”
let’s just say - he was mighty quick to make you his girlfriend that day :)
He sat in his studio chair as you also sat behind him on the long comfortable couch. You had the biggest crush on Yoongi and it was starting to become a problem at this very moment.
The need to kiss him was a problematic problem.
The mood was so right, lights dimmed a bit, the song he was producing was slow and sounded emotional as hell. His voice echoed along with his pre-recorded verses.
“Hmm?” He had one ear exposed while the other was covered with the studio headphones. He turns around with a stranger poker face.
“I ..uh..” he stares at you waiting for you to spill whatever you wanted to say out. “Nevermind.” You looked down at the ground and as clear as day you could hear him sigh and curse under his breath.
“I like you.” You stood up to leave but was stopped by his hand reaching and grabbing your wrist. You looked away but was soon pulled to sit on his lap.
“You like me?” He says softly in a teasing manner. You nodded with a shy smile on your face. He also shyly smiles before leaning in to kiss your plump lips.
You were listening to hoseok ramble on about how the new dance to D.N.A was really fun. His favorite part was which they do the arm movement in the choreo, so they re-acted what D.N.A is supposed to be like. He animatedly expressed his love for you to be there to watch their first performance, but you teasingly sad you couldn’t just to get a reaction from him, you were actually able to go.
“No baby, I won’t be able to go..my boss said I can’t take any more vacations…I used my last vacation last week when I went out to your parent’s house, remember?” His eyes brows knitted together as he nodded understandingly, he looked sad but he knew your job is more important.
“Ne, Jagiya, I’m sorry for not being considerate.” He smiles sweetly, you giggled while glomping him; he falls back onto the couch as he lets out a confused chuckle. “What?” He says as he plays with your kinky curls with a loving smile.
“I was kidding, Hoseokie. I’ll be able to go~ I just wanted to see your adorable pouty face, but I didn’t get one, you generally looked hurt. I don’t like that reaction.” You pouted, sinking your face into his chest; he laughs.
“Baby your so mean~ Augh! My girlfriend likes me being sad? Woooooooow~” You whimpered as he continuously teases you. “You’re so cute, Y/N.” he leans down to kiss your forward, but you looked up in time for his lips to meet yours.
Believe it or not, this was your first kiss with hoseok. He tensed up for a second, but continued to kiss you non-the-less; you didn’t pull away so he knew that that was an Okay go to continue his make-out session with you.
You ran into Namjoon’s bedroom and glomped your sick boyfriend and jumped onto the mattress next to him. He turns his head to look over at you with a smile on his face.
“Hey, baby.” He says, before opening his arms so you can jump into them. He smiles as he hugs you super close and kisses the top of your head.
“How is your stomach, Joon?”
“A little bit better, I think the pork we had last night wasn’t cooked thoroughly. This is the last time I have you try it, let Jin or Me do it.”
“If you do it, the restaurant would have burned down.” He laughs, kissing your forehead.
Namjoon would always kiss your forehead, or cheek or on the crown of your head; but never your lips since he thought maybe you weren’t ready for it yet, since it’s very very intimate, and he wants to respect your privacy.
“I love you, you clumsy boy.” You decided to say something because at that moment all that was being done was him staring right at you lovingly, you blushed once he began to laugh leaning his head back as he stares at the ceiling, obviously trying to hide his blush.
“Show me the dimples!” You pushed yourself off of him and straddled him so you could lean over to see his face more. He shouts in a playful manner which caused you to giggle, finally able to see his dimples. “I love them, Sorry~”
He looks at you with a small smile. “I love you.” He says sweetly, You then surprised him with a kiss on his lips. You tried to pull away, but he gently grabs you by your back, holding you there, he removed his lips for a second.
“Just a little while longer, please?”
You were cuddled up to Jimin as you both watched Paranormal story times on your laptop which was laying on your lap. He was a skeptic about the paranormal while you were not, you highly believed in ghosts, demons, and poltergeists.
You were so into (Youtuber’s name)’s Storytime, Once it got to a part where she shows video evidence of the paranormal happenings in her own home, Once it got to a part where something is thrown across her living room, Jimin roars into your ear scaring you.
“ROAAAR!!” You screamed, throwing your laptop, and it landed on the floor with a thump, shutting off right after. You gasped loudly, feeling your soul turn cold for the second time, The first was because of Jimin scaring you.
“JIMIN!!!!” You Screeched. He Covered his ears with a slightly shook look on his features. He didn’t want for you to toss your laptop like that, maybe he should have thought about that before giving into his own pleasures of laughter.
You jumped off the couch but clumsily fell down because your legs were sleep. He was about to laugh but stopped himself because he was already in big trouble, to begin with, he also felt guilty for making you throw your laptop.
“My lap..top..” You tried turning it on a few times, nothing came on. He grabs it, pulling you off the couch towards the garage, he grabs the toolbox and searched for a screwdriver.
Jimin was apologizing to you, a good three times but you weren’t having it.
“Stupid boyfriend.” He sighs, as he was trying to unscrew the back of the laptop.
“Look. I already apologized three times…I’m Sorry baby! Please..” He finally opens it. The Battery was knocked out of its port, so he plugs it back in. He screws the laptop shut, flipping it over to see that the interface was also damaged, and was slightly peeled off.
“Shit..I’ll buy you a brand new one, for Christmas baby.”
“okay..” She crosses her arms, about to walk away with a pout. He bites his bottom lip, grabbing your forearm, turning you around gently, before placing a kiss on your forehead.
“I’m sorry, ok?”
“No.” You shook your head. He kisses your nose. “No.” He slowly moves forward, and you closed your eyes as you feel his lips on yours. You pull back squealing happily, “I accept!” He laughs while leaning back in to kiss you once more.
Taehyung was chasing after your dog, Crewsho for the tenth time this day and the two of them weren’t even close to being tired. Your dog loves Taehyung, Taehyung Loves Crewsho, and you loved them both just as much. However, You couldn’t help but feel a tad bit jealous.
Taehyung had messaged you last night about coming over this morning to take you and crewsho out for a walk and some breakfast this morning. However, it’s been thirty minutes and they were ignoring you as you kept asking Taehyung when it was time to go and all he did was say, “Just a second, Sweetie~” While trying to catch Crewsho, who was running around avoiding Taehyung’s grabby hands.
Taehyung finally slowed down, sitting on his bum on your grass, while laying down trying to catch his breath. You stood up, to check on him when your dog instead ran over and climbed on top of him.
Taehyung notices that you were sitting by yourself with a small pout on your face. He grabs your doggie with with care as he walks over to you, he kneels down and kisses your lips, surprising you.
“Cheer up, Baby~” He sung to you, making you blush.
“Y/n. I’m not happy about you cheating.”
“I can cheat all I want.”
“it’s only a game.” As soon as you said that, his character dies and the winning title flashes on the screen that you were the winner of the match. You gently set down the controller on the bed with a grin.
He sighs, sitting down the controller on his stomach as he lays down with a looser frown. “I’m so sad.”
“What is my prize, Kookie?” You asked cutely, he looks at you with this look.
“I’m not giving you anything, Cheater.” He sassed at you, putting both hands behind his head as he shuts his eyes closed.
May I remind you.
You two never kissed Intimately before, so…your thot ass (JK) decided to do the unthinkable.
(Gurl Please, You know you’ve been thinking about the smack down on his lips.)
You quickly climbed on top of him in a Straddled position, leaning down right as you caught his eyes widening in shock as his mouth open up to say something, you captured his lips.
He grabbed your forearm in shock, you pulled away and tried to run but his grip tightened. His eyes were still wide in shock but he then whispers to you.
“Again.” He looks from the ceiling to you, with the biggest smile on the planet.
DOO CENTRAL’S FUN FACT FRIDAYS - THE MULTI-SCOOBY-DOONIVERSE THEORY
Hello everybody! This week’s Fun Fact Friday post is going to be a little different than other posts that I’ve made here on Doo Central. Rather than relay to you all fun facts about the Scooby-Doo franchise, I wanted to pitch an idea.
About a month ago, I posted on the Scooby Addicts forum about what was the “correct” telling of how Scooby became a part of the gang. There’s actually multiple ways that Scooby came to be a member of Mystery Inc. (a Fun Fact Friday post going into detail about that linked here). I suggested that all the stories were correct because maybe the entire Scooby-Doo franchise…is a multiverse.
Yes you read that right. Due to some Scooby-Doo series referencing others and being related as well as the things that don’t add up, I’m suggesting that there are at least eight distinct Scooby-Doo timelines. The following are the names of each timeline:
1) Paranormal Generic Timeline
2) Non-Paranormal Generic Timeline
3) Large Coolsville Timeline
4) Small Coolsville Timeline
5) Crystal Cove Timeline
6) Frankencreepy Timeline
7) Shaggy & Scooby-Doo! Get a Clue Timeline
8) Be Cool, Scooby-Doo Timeline
I’m going to describe each one and what series/movies exist in them. The time periods of these series/movies aren’t concretely relevant in this look at the timelines.
Keep in mind that some of these timelines share series and I’ll explain why too. I’ll justify why some of them are grouped together and why some don’t work in certain timelines. So lets get to it!
1) Paranormal Generic
This timeline begins with Scooby-Doo, Where Are You. This series
is at the heart of many of the timelines solely because it is the most generic
and original version of the characters. By generic, I mean that this series
doesn’t take place in a particular town.
The timeline is called the
Paranormal Generic Timeline because it deals with real ghosts and supernatural
phenomena in more than one instance. This timeline contains Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!, The New
Scooby-Doo Movies (which contains a real genie), The Scooby-Doo Show, Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo, the second Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo (which
contains all sorts of supernatural creatures/happenings), The New Scooby and Scrappy-Doo Show, and The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo (containing the most powerful ghosts in
the world). The TV movies that are also included in this timeline include Scooby-Doo Goes Hollywood, Scooby-Doo and
the Reluctant Werewolf, Scooby-Doo Meets the Boo Brothers, Scooby-Doo and the
Ghoul School, and Scooby-Doo in
reason these movies fit into the timeline is because they feature paranormal
elements such as ghosts and monsters. Another thing that makes the timeline end
here is that Scooby-Doo Goes Hollywood sets
up how Scooby became a member of the gang. Being revealed to be adopted from
Grillo’s Pet Store, this movie isn’t contradicted by another series until A Pup Named Scooby-Doo. This series is
the first one to continue on without Scrappy-Doo as a character and is also the
first to establish a regular named city.
2) Non-Paranormal Generic Timeline
let the name of this timeline fool you. It does contain paranormal elements but
not until the very end of it. This timeline also begins with Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! and for the
most part does not contain any real ghosts or monsters. This version of the
first timeline drops The New Scooby-Doo
Movies, the second Scooby-Doo and
Scrappy-Doo, The New Scooby-Doo Show, and The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo. The only TV movie named in the first
timeline that fits into this one is Scooby-Doo
Goes Hollywood because it’s the only one that doesn’t have any ghosts or
monsters. This timeline doesn’t introduce its first real paranormal elements
until Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island which
revolves around the gang encountering their very first mystery involving real
monsters. The movie also sets the gang to be a little older than they were in
the first timeline as they all have adult lives and careers. Their decision to
get back together as Mystery Inc. leads them into the Scooby-Doo and the Witch’s Ghost, Scooby-Doo and the Alien Invaders, and
Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase where
they continue to encounter real monsters in an older period of their lives.
3) Large Coolsville Timeline
is the largest timeline among the eight that I’m discussing in this post. It is
the first to establish a real hometown for the gang that will reappear in both
TV series and movies. This timeline begins with A Pup Named Scooby-Doo where the gang are a bunch of thirteen year
olds in junior high school in Coolsville. The events of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! take place in their high school years. The Scooby-Doo Show and the first Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo take place
right after high school and then we get into their late twenties. Rather than
going into their careers as they did in the Non-Paranormal Generic Timeline,
this timeline has the gang continue their mystery-solving adventures as they
never broke up after school. They own homes in Coolsville and go on road trips
and travel the world in What’s New,
Scooby-Doo? This series both establishes Coolsville as the home of the gang
like A Pup Named Scooby-Doo and
contains a flashback to them as kids in the style of that series.
movies that fit into this timeline include every movie between Scooby-Doo and the Legend of the Vampire and
Scooby-Doo and the Samurai Sword. In
order for this to work, Scooby-Doo and
the Witch’s Ghost also exists in this timeline since the gang has met the
Hex Girls twice.
action 2002 and 2004 Scooby-Doo films (Scooby-Doo
and Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed)
also exist in this timeline but at the very end of it. This is the first time
in this timeline that the gang splits up. The first movie isn’t the first time
that they’ve dealt with real paranormal activity and the second movie supports
this timeline as it takes place in Coolsville. The second movie also features
monsters that have existed in the other series that are named in this timeline
including Chickenstein from A Pup Named
4) Small Coolsville Timeline
is a variant of the third timeline as it does take place in Coolsville. This
timeline is established by the 2009 live action movie Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins which shows how the gang first meets
in high school. Its sequel also exists in this timeline. Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! would take place after these movies and
veer off into a direction like the Paranormal Generic Timeline except it drops
the Scooby-Doo Goes Hollywood movie.
reason this timeline is different than the third one is because the gang first
meets in high school in this timeline rather than knowing each other as kids
like in the third one. It would contradict how Scooby came to meet the gang and
its continuing into the Paranormal Generic Timeline would depend on the
dropping of the Scooby-Doo Goes Hollywood
movie because it also contradicts how Scooby meets the gang.
5) Crystal Cove Timeline
timeline deviates from the third and fourth timelines as it establishes a new
hometown for the gang: Crystal Cove. Scooby-Doo,
Where Are You! kicks off this timeline and it does contain the first Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo series. It
also includes The 13 Ghosts of
Cove is introduced in Scooby-Doo! Mystery
Incorporated and that series definitely supports the idea of multiple
universes in the Scooby-Doo franchise. Crystal Cove would also exist in the LEGO Scooby-Doo! Haunted Hollywood movie
which then argues that the other LEGO specials exist in the same timeline. The
reason the first three series that were named in this timeline are here are
because they relate to Scooby-Doo!
monsters are referenced in Scooby-Doo!
Mystery Incorporated that are from Scooby-Doo,
Where Are You! Scrappy-Doo himself is named as a character in this show as
well as Flim Flam which means the other two series I mentioned did happen in
only concern that can be raised about this timeline is the reasoning for Fred
and Daphne agreeing not to speak of Scrappy as well as the appearance of the
Luna Ghost in the background of the Crystal Cove Monster Museum. The Luna Ghost
appears in the 2002 Scooby-Doo film.
Perhaps Scrappy and the Luna Ghost are in this timeline for different reasons
but as to how, I can’t say for sure.
6) Frankencreepy Timeline
Frankencreepy Timeline is named such because it contains all the movies
beginning with Scooby-Doo! Abracadabra
Doo until present day movies aside from LEGO
Scooby-Doo! Haunted Hollywood. However, all these movies have to take
place after Scooby-Doo! Frankencreepy.
timeline begins with Scooby-Doo, Where
Are You!, The Scooby-Doo Show, and the first Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo. This set of series don’t contain
paranormal elements which is a big theme in Scooby-Doo!
Frankencreepy. This timeline doesn’t exist without paranormal elements but
they happen after Scooby-Doo!
Frankencreepy. This movie is also one of the few in the franchise that
directly references monsters in the TV series. Those monsters are featured in Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! and The Scooby-Doo Show.
7) Shaggy & Scooby-Doo! Get a Clue
Timeline and 8) Be Cool, Scooby-Doo Timeline
timelines are very small and are no surprise being their own timelines
considering they’re often called the black sheep of the Scooby-Doo franchise.
They both contain the Scooby-Doo, Where
Are You! series within their worlds but go in their own directions. The
Shaggy & Scooby-Doo! Get a Clue Timeline explores Scooby and Shaggy’s lives
after leaving Mystery Inc. to live in luxury in Shaggy’s uncle’s mansion and
fight the evil Dr. Phineas Phibes.
Be Cool, Scooby-Doo Timeline shows the gang solving mysteries on a road trip
after they graduate high school. It’s unclear if they’ve graduated from
Coolsville High School or Crystal Cove High School, however some speculate this
show could be a sequel to Scooby-Doo!
Mystery Incorporated because that series ends with the group going on a
road trip. However, Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! does
not fit with this series because it negates all drama and relationships
established in Scooby-Doo! Mystery
Incorporated and isn’t exclusive to a specific town.
Maybe I’m just being a huge nerd looking too deep into this but it’s fun to speculate. The Multi-Scooby-Dooniverse Theory could go even further suggesting each series and movie is its own world and that each comic book goes along with the corresponding TV series. Heck, Scooby Apocalypse is its own world and its just a comic book.
I hope you guys enjoyed reading this idea of mine and maybe you could expand it further with your own ideas. Think I missed something or am wrong about something? I’d love to hear your comments.
Also be sure to let me know what you want to learn more about in the Scooby-Doo franchise. A new Fun Fact Friday post is made every week here on Doo Central and I am always looking for new things in Scooby-Doo!
Here are some odd, vaguely paranormal things that happen when in the presence of the SA boys.
- Time gets weird around Georg.
- The temperature of a room is never right when Melchior is there. Melchior doesn’t notice anything different.
- People get honest around Hanschen. He’s like a truth serum.
- Things fall off seemingly level surfaces when Ernst is around.
- Electronics go kaput immediately upon contact with or proximity to Moritz.
- Where there is Otto, there are crumbs. Also, things just go missing, but he didn’t take them.
October is here and what better way to start this awesome month than with some paranormal stories and the real Blair Witch! In this video @marigisela & i talk about several paranormal experiences that have happened to us in the past. And we also talk about the real Blair Witch Project movie and the horrors that the cast had to endure! If you enjoy it please reblog. I’ll be following a bunch of you back! :) xo
“Of course, dear,” Mary says sweetly, smiling at her son as she turned back to the refrigerator. “I’ll be there to pick you up from school a little late today because of work, just wait inside, okay?”
Chris nods while pushing his food around on the plate absentmindedly. Christian and Christie were still asleep, and as usual, Chris woke up sooner just to help out. He looks up at the sound of a glass being set on the table, glancing up at his mother. “Mom, this is beer.”
“Oh.” Mary stares at the bottle she set down as if surprised by her own actions. And she probably is–he knows she never does these things on purpose. “Sorry, babe,” she laughs while taking the bottle back and replacing it with a new glass of orange juice (actually right this time). “Guess mom’s always gonna be a bit clumsy, huh?”
He lifts the glass to his face and takes a small sip, nodding. It’s the reason he gets up so early, to make sure everything is in place and ready for when the troublemakers woke up. His mother can handle them, probably better than his father (who always sleeps in), but it doesn’t hurt to help. He’d never tell her, though.
“And I think,” Mary starts with a lilt to her voice that catches his attention. She smirks at him over her shoulder. “Since dad’s up yet, it looks like Paranormal Ice Truckers just happened to get recorded after someone went to bed last night…”
Chris’s face immediately splits into a shy smile, and Mary laughs at the sight, leaning over to ruffle his hair. “Thanks, mom…”
“Don’t know what you’re talking about, definitely wasn’t me. Probably those ghosts.”
Chris likes helping his mom out, because he knows that sometimes, she just needs another hand. The special time they get together is just a nice extra.
Gettysburg is said to be the most haunted place in America. It’s even claimed if you spend an entire night on the battlefield it’s impossible to not have a paranormal experience. However not every paranormal encounter happens at night, this photo was taken in broad daylight. A woman snapped this photo while in Devils Den. She claims there were no reenactors in the area, what do you think?
