Takashi Shimizu is baaaaack with ‘Little Nightmares’, aka 'こどもつかい’!
“A suburban town is shaken by a series of mysterious child disappearances, and suspicious adult deaths. A rumor begins to spread on the internet that any adult who suddenly encounters a returned “child” will die mysteriously three days later. Local newspaper reporter Shunya Ezaki refuses to believe that children are killing adults, and begins to investigate the truth behind the strange deaths. Who on earth is “Kodomo Tsukai”? And what kind of dark fate do the abducted children drag their adult victims toward?”

The Siren

The Siren | Once, a long, long time ago, Phil had heard a story – a strange story, so fantastical he hadn’t known whether or not to laugh, eyes wide and terrified amidst it all, - about a mermaid, a siren, who supposedly stole away the sailors of the sea to the bottom of the ocean, never to be seen again. | Phan | Teen and Up | Siren!Dan, Asexual!Phil | 3811 words

Happy birthday my dear Rachel, @phansdick​ <3 Sorry I suck at surprises and decided to spend all day teasing you about your birthday fic. I’m really, really glad I was able to pull this together for you, though, as I didn’t think I was going to make it, and low and behold, you ended up getting it early! I love you a lot, even if some times I really, really suck at showing it and disappear for days on end, and you’re the best friend anyone could ask for. You are truly one of a kind, perfect, amazing, and so incredibly strong. Thank you for always being there for me, and I hope that I can always be there for you as well. I sincrerely hope you enjoy this, because I think I legitimately took a turn with his most people probably won’t be expecting.

Based on that tumblr post asking for an asexual sailor to run into a siren.

“Y/N.” A gruff and raspy voice was the first thing you heard as you were being shaken from your slumber. Your name was called again and again until you finally peeped one eye open to be faced with Calum’s soft features. “Babe, get up.”

“For what?” You groaned as he placed his body on top of yours. You allowed him to rest there , too tired to protest about how heavy he was.

“It’s a meeting all of us have to go to in about ten minutes and we’re already going to be late.”

“Why do I have to get up?”

Sighing loudly, Calum began to place innocent kisses all over the bare skin of your shoulder due to his shirt slouching from it.“Because David wants you at this meeting too.”

With another groan you decided that you were done with the questioning. Calum lifted himself away from you and couldn’t stop himself as he planted a kiss onto your full lips.

Rest in peace, Nicole Bass
[1964 - 2017]

Former ECW and WWF superstar Nicole Bass has sadly passed away. She was 52.

Fans of The Attitude Era will recall the monstrous presence of Nicole Bass making her debut in March of 1999. Bass was WWF Women’s Champion Sable’s bodyguard at WrestleMania 15, and was briefly involved in a feud against Debra. Bass also had a short-lived but hysterical run with Val Venis, in which she was Val’s female counterpart. That is, until she whacked him with Jeff Jarrett’s guitar after losing a bikini contest to Debra.

Bass and Ivory began teaming for a short time before Bass left the WWF. Prior to her run in the WWF, Nicole was a member of the ECW roster, hanging primarily with Justin Credible, Chastity, and Jason.

Nicole’s girlfriend posted the following on her Facebook page:

Dignity and Respect.
2 things every person on this planet deserves.
2 things very important to Nicole Bass.
The past few days I, Kristen Marrone, have been posting to my girlfriends pages to try and keep her very personal life private. Rumors have been spreading around the internet about her health. A few days ago we didn’t know all of what was going on so I have been trying to keep it quiet until we had answers. Nicole values her privacy and I Respect that. Before anyone tries to take the story and twist it up and make it ugly I want to put it out there in a Respectful way.
A few days ago Nicole got very sick. She was brought into the hospital and they did everything they could to help her. I have been sitting here with her in the room 24/7 since she got here making sure she was being given the best possible care. Today we learned that there is nothing else that can be done.
Nicole was an amazing woman. Strong not only on the outside but inside as well. Beautiful soul and kind heart. Many people knew Nicole but few ever got close enough to know the REAL woman that she was. I got to be one of the lucky few. Not only was she my soul mate and my girlfriend but she was my best friend, my teacher and my business partner. I learned many valuable things from her and created many beautiful memories in the time we had together.
I would like to keep her page open for her loving fans and friends to share their photos and memories.
I just ask that you treat Nicole with the dignity and respect that she deserves.
Thank you to everyone that has been reaching out to and helping me through this very difficult time.
Nicole, I love you. I will always love you.
I will always be yours and you will always be <3 mine

Rest in peace, Nicole.

OUIJA BOARDS ARE NOT A GAME!!

Except that they are. I mean You can only find them in the toys and games department on Amazon. I tried to look for some kind of demon summoning department but they don’t have one (yet).

Ouija boards were invented to be games. They were patented as a game. They were played at parties. They were all the rage 100 years ago because it was an excuse for a boy and girl to sit with their knees touching (hot). They were not created as a tool to summon demons. They were not created to be used as Wiccan divination. Ouija boards were invented a good sixty years before Wicca. 

Every aspect of Ouija boards are meant to be treated as a game. 

Which is why posts on Tumblr about how Ouija boards aren’t games and that they are dangerous and shouldn’t be messed with annoy me greatly. How about don’t tell other people they shouldn’t do something by scaring them. You don’t tell someone not to get in a car because your friend’s uncle died in a car. You don’t tell someone not to get a dog because your neighbor was attacked by one. You don’t tell someone not to go to Disneyland because someone died on the Big Thunder ride. You don’t get to tell random strangers on the Internet that they shouldn’t use Ouija boards. By scaring people with your Ouija board stories (that are made up) you are perpetuating fear and scaring people who don’t know anything about Ouija boards.

Then how did these creepy stories even start? By Hollywood movies trying to make a buck. By religions that condone anything to do with death (or parties where boys and girls get to touch knees). By rumors spread by sensational newspapers, magazines, or on the Internet. None of it is based on actual fact.

Think about this: if Ouija boards were actually dangerous and not toys, why are they for sale in toy stores right now? How come you can go into Barnes & Noble right now and get one, no matter how old you are? How come I can buy one on Amazon right now (and give them away for free)? How come laws haven’t been passed to ban them? How come possessions and demonic hauntings don’t wind up on the evening news? 

BECAUSE OUIJA BOARDS AREN’T DANGEROUS. BECAUSE THEY ARE BOARD GAMES.

If you have questions about Ouija boards and the spirit world, or just need some advice, my ask box and my (nearly) twenty years of Ouija board experience are at your disposal.

Would you consider doing a PSA against the "blue whale game"?

I don’t think it’s real. It sounds like another scary Internet rumor based in unsubstantiated claims. Publicizing real or purported suicides has a nasty tendency to encourage copycats.

PSA about Beauty and the Beast

PSA about Beauty and the Beast:

Recently I have seen some strange posts along the lines of “Why can’t they follow the original dark ending?  Why does Disney have to give it a Happy ending?” in regard to Beauty and the Beast.

I decided to get to the bottom of this and found there is an old Internet rumor that the original Beauty and the Beast ended with either the death of The Beast or The Beast eating Belle.  Whoever started this rumor is confusing Beauty and the Beast for the oldest version of Little Red Riding Hood also known as Little Red Riding Cap (from 1693).

The version of Beauty and the Beast that is the popular fairy tale is an abridged and revised version of the surprisingly feminist 1740 French novel La Belle et la Bête by Madame  Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve.  (It talks about a woman’s right to choose a husband, and The Prince’s mother was a Queen who lead an army to defend her kingdom).

No version of Beauty and the Beast exists in which The Beast eats Belle (Beauty) or where The Beast dies and stays dead.  There are versions where the evil faery haunts Belle with dreams that The Beast will bring her ruin if not kill her and there are versions where Belle’s sisters conspire to try to get the Beast to eat her but it never happens.  The Beast comes close to death or briefly dies but he never once stays dead. That version simply does not exist.   This Internet rumor needs to stop.

If you doubt me you can buy the original novel on Amazon translated by Rachel Louise Lawrence, completely unabridged or you can check out the book The Classic Fairy Tales by Iona and Peter Opie which gives the full history of many of the classic fairy tales and their various alternate versions.

The darkest thing about the original Beauty and the Beast novel is that the faery who raised The Prince (because his mother was off fighting a war) tried to seduce him as soon as he was of age and Belle (who discovers her mother was actually a faery and father was actually a king, she had only believed the merchant to be her father) and the Beast turned out to be cousins.   And yes, they marry.

The faery tale that originally ended in the death of the protagonist was Little Red Riding Cap.   The Little mermaid ended in death too but that was Hans Christian Anderson, not Madame de Villeneuve.

Also just because we are used to things ending tragically doesn’t mean it should.  Think how cynical the world has become where enchanted castles and faeries aren’t what we consider far fetched but simply the idea of things ending well and yet things sometimes do end well in the real world.  It’s not actually realistic to expect everything to always end poorly.   Sometimes things really do end happily.

You Told Everyone- Leon Draisaitl

Originally posted by mcdraii

A/N: Hey guys! Thanks again! I hope you enjoy!

Request:  May I request a Leon Draisaitl where you guys have been dating for a while quietly and he outs your relationship during an interview. Love your writing!!

Up Next: Charlie McAvoy


You and Leon had been dating for almost nine months now and throughout the entirety of your relationship you had managed to keep it out of the public eye. You weren’t too sure why, you were a bit shy at first but after the first few months you had warmed up, but it just never came up in conversation, and it didn’t bother you really. There were some perks about the relationship being so private, you didn’t have to worry about rude comments from fans, you were able to go out in public basically unknown, of course the team knew about you and a few fans at a game or two had come up to ask you about it which you answered honestly. But you were surprised that the social media network hadn’t figured it out yet.

Leon had a huge interview today following tonight’s away game and he had made you promise that you would stay up and watch it, he said that it comforted him to know that you were there watching, he said it made him feel as if you were actually there with him and as weird as it sounded you found it sweet that the boy had so much love for you and that you calmed him down so much.

So that’s why you sat on your couch, still bundled up in one of his large shirts and a pair of leggings, you were exhausted after a day of work but the two of you had arranged a skype date following the interview so you forced yourself to stay awake through it all. By the time the fifth question had been asked you were already starting to doze off but your eyes shot open at the next question.

“So there have been rumors about you and a mystery girl circling the internet, care to comment on that?” A female reporter asked.

Well, looks like you had been wrong about the social media network, they were better than you thought at this. You sat up and leaned forward on the couch, turning the TV up so you could hear every bit of his answer. You two had never discussed what to do if your relationship came up in an interview and you could tell that he was debating on what to do with the question.

“Yes. Most of the rumors are true, I have a girlfriend named Y/N, we’ve been dating for nine months now.” Your jaw dropped as you realized that he had just outed your relationship to everyone.

Now that the first question had been answered the floodgates opened and the question every interviewer wanted to know was why the relationship had been so hush for so long.

“We just never got around to telling people, it didn’t matter if everyone knew. We were comfortable with what we are and it’s not like we need publicity to assure each other.” He answered simply and you smiled widely. You were more than excited to skype him later.


 You watched the rest of the interview, perking up a bit at the random questions here and there that caught your ear. Following the interview you clicked the TV off and moved to the kitchen to put your dishes away, keeping your laptop up just in case he decided to call you earlier than usual, which he might considering the bombshell he had just dropped on you and the world.

Right on time, just as you were snuggling into bed, the familiar skype ringtone went off and you grabbed your laptop, opening it up to find your boyfriend’s smiling face staring back at you, a gesture to which you quickly returned.

“Hey babe.” He smiled and you couldn’t help the large grin on your face. “Alright, what’s going on? You’re making me nervous.” He chuckled.

“You told everyone about us.” You simply replied and watched as he instantly became nervous.

“Oh, uh, yeah. I know we didn’t talk about it. Just thought-” You cut him off with a lap and a soft shake of your head.

“I’m not mad babe, I just wasn’t expecting it. Plus I didn’t realize your fans were that good, we hardly post anything about each other.” You giggled. “But now that we’re out, I’m posting so many of those embarrassing pictures I have of you.”

You watched as he groaned before he smirked back at you.

“I have some of my own Y/N, don’t forget.”

It was your turn to groan before both of you burst out laughing. The rest of the conversation was simply catching up, you asking about the team and him asking you about work, you had shifted to lay on your side, the laptop resting on the pillow next to you were Leon usually slept.


You must’ve fallen asleep during the Skype call because you woke up hours later to a dark room and a text on your phone from Leon.

You looked exhausted babe, didn’t have the heart to wake you up. I love you Y/N, call me in the morning.

You smiled tiredly before putting your phone down and cuddling into your pillow, you knew that tomorrow you would face an onslaught of fans and online questions, but all you cared about right now was your sleep and the fact that everyone in the world know that Leon was yours.

anonymous asked:

But how will the team from your beautiful au would react to Lance 'dying' as said in an interview by Jeremy??

I’m assuming that when you’re referring to my au (thanks for the compliment btw~) you mean: how would they react to not Lance actually dying for real but to the totally not probable rumor on the internet that he might?
At first I thought about Lance jokingly asking Pidge to run all his social media accounts, so he can haunt them from grave.

But then I thought about Lance’s actual Facebook page on Earth, inactive for months (maybe longer, time in space and all the jazz) on which his profile picture is lighted candle and some people post things like: “we miss you!” and other idiots hack it to pretend a ghost.
For some reason I don’t think that this would happened to rest of the crew’s social media.
