Yikes! The reminder post should have been up on the 20th, but I... kind of got caught up in yuletide, and the Inspiration post.

So this is a reminder that the Master Post will go up on the 26th.

Post a link to your story on the Master Post. You can post your story anywhere, AO3, LJ/DW, a website or archive, etc.

I apologize for being late with the reminder.

We're a little past the mid-point with the due date (October 26th) coming up fast. How is the writing coming along? Are you still excited about your ideas, or do you need a little inspiration to get into that SPOOOOKY mood?

To help get those bloody-- I mean CREATIVE juices flowing, here are some creepy, weird, and downright scary links for you to enjoy!

I would like to thank trillingstar for finding some of these gems.

The Spook Me Multi-Fandom Halloween Ficathon 2015!

This ficathon was created by me, ozsaur and dustandroses because we love spooky stories. Halloween is the best time of year for reading stories that offer pulse pounding thrills, blood curdling dread and hair-raising horror.

Due to having a really bad summer that included a throat infection and a pulled back, I wasn't sure I'd be able to do spook_me this year. But! dustandroses and trillingstar both stepped up to the plate and dug up some amazing artwork this year. I still looked through all of it and found a few pieces myself so the art will still have the same feel as always. My friends did a great job. Thanks, guys!

Note: for this year only, I'm adding a new monster to the list: Dark Faeries!

All fandoms are welcome. Stories can be Gen, Het, Slash or Femmeslash. All ratings are accepted.

Hey! Hope the writing is going well! This is a reminder that the Master Post will go up on the 26th. I'm always around for a few days after the post goes live to put up links, so no worries if you're a bit late. After Halloween, though, it might take a while for me to post the links.

If you have any questions or problems, let me know here, or by email at ausar@netdoor.com

How's it going? There's still plenty of time to get your stories done, but if you feel the need for a bit of inspiration about now, here are some links. Some are fun, some are strange, and some are downright disturbing. I'm sure there's something here to get you in the mood to write something spooky!

I'd like to thank trillingstar and dustandroses for their support, as well as their efforts in helping to dig up some of the wonderful prompt artwork and art for this post. Thanks!!!

All prompts have been sent! If you have any questions or problems, ask here or email me at ausar@netdoor.com

Please remember to check your spam folders as well as your alternate email addresses if you haven't received your prompts by this evening. I don't mind resending prompts if they disappeared. Also, check your PM messages - one person got their prompts sent that way.

Someone suggested that I give the link to the album for anyone who wants to browse all the prompts:

http://s879.photobucket.com/user/spook_me/library/Spook%20Me%20Anything%20Goes?sort=3&page=1

That should take you to the first page of this year's album.

I apologize to my DW participants for the delay.

One last thing -- an inspiration post will go up in a couple of weeks. Friend the journal here or at LJ if you want to see it, and want to get the reminder on October 20th as well.

This ficathon was created by me, ozsaur and dustandroses because we love spooky stories. Halloween is the best time of year for reading stories that offer pulse pounding thrills, blood curdling dread and hair-raising horror.

We've decided not to have a theme this year, so the prompts are a bit of a mixed bag. The prompts will still have a more vintage/classic look, some fairy tale illustrations, a few vintage science fiction covers, and a lot of strange and surreal artwork that I dug up.

Note: for this year only, I'm adding a new monster to the list: Witch/Wizard!

All fandoms are welcome. Stories can be Gen, Het, Slash or Femmeslash. All ratings are accepted.

Dates to Know:

September 6: Sign ups start.
September 15: Sign ups end.
September 17: Prompts sent out.
October 20: Reminder posted here - please friend if you want to get the reminder.
October 26: Master Post opens, stories are due!
