Daily Deviation

Given 2008-01-14
The Black Book of Horror by *pmoodie is wonderfully rendered. The colours, composition, and subject all work masterfully towards giving the viewer a serious case of the heebie-jeebies. ( Suggested by GH-MoNGo and Featured by cosmosue )

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so they set up aSPECIALROOM to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on a monday night at 12:00a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed to death.

Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if u copy and paste this to ten comments in the next ten minutes u will have the best day of ur life tomorrow. u will either get kissed or asked out, if u break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room tonight. in 53 mins someone will say i love you or im SORRY

Somewhere on the dark dusty shelf of stale smelling room contaning ancient secrets and other hidden morsal's in plainsight, you crack open the book that makes phantom sounds that make your skin crawl with goose bumps anticipating the potential discovery of some lost art that you will now posses, intent upon learning an esoteric practice long forgotten in the far reaches of the primordal soul surrounded by ectoplasmic spirits that now accompany you forever...the is no turning back from the black are now enveloped in it's darkness.  

luv it!

Experiencing similar entities in my own due to my incessant curiosity of things beyond or things in between our world which i attempt to capture using the current technology as a medium, facilitating the appearance of things that defy the average imagination of humanity.   Maybe it's possible that I am carrying on a tradition of such a vision. either way...there's no turing back as I  embrace, unlock,  and explore the mystery of my own creation.   My writing's and work will be physical evidence of that Testament.   Thank you.   Help build me and I will help build you.

There were some doors man was never meant to open. And some dark visages man was never meant to dream of.
AlderFenton Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
That fear that lingers and lay dormant in the human mind is nothing more than the remnants of a forgotten past freshly realized, an acknowledgement meant to propel you in the direction which is solely up to you.  Such are the way's of Conscious growth, at first with disturbing visages which slowly fades into the dream you were meant to dream as nothing is what it seemed but only my own thought upon which it floats in the vast eternity in your Mindamintle Ku'Vacious Ertherium

In times now long since past, that which we laugh at as unrealistic childhood horror-filled fantasies that dwell in the darkness were the greatest tormentors of the Human race, now hidden by millennia of 'logic' and 'reasoning'.
AlderFenton Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Logic and reasoning being the easy part of mind-science; the abstract conscious, multidimensional mind creating logical pleasure for the resonate mind.   I trek the road to know, the very meaning of science.

Do you master the sciences of Man, or the sciences that are the Black Magicks of older times, now scoffed at by so-called civilized society?
