This is the reminder post for Spook Me. The posting date is October 26th.

The Master List will go up, and you can post the link to your story there. I will be around for a few days after the post goes up, so if you're a bit late, no problem. Your story will go up on the Master List.

I hope you're still having fun, and I look forward to your stories!

All of the prompt posts have been sent from both LJ and DW. If you don't get your prompts by tonight, please let me know in the comments here, or by email at ausar @ netdoor.com

I'm still getting used to the new photo hosting site (thanks for the hosting, trillingstar) so if I've made any mistakes with your picture prompts let me know.

I hope y'all feel inspired by your prompts!

Have fun!

When the chill winds of autumn rattle the bare limbs of the trees, and dark clouds race across the face of the moon, the veil between worlds lifts to reveal:

The Spook Me Multi-Fandom Halloween Ficathon 2018!

This ficathon was created by ozsaur and dustandroses because we love spooky stories. trillingstar has been very helpful with finding great art prompts and is hosting this year's artwork. Halloween is the best time of year for reading stories that offer pulse pounding thrills, blood curdling dread and hair-raising horror.

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

We have TWO new Creatures this year: Baba Yaga and Wendigo! trillingstar put together a CREEPY collection of Baba Yaga art for Spook Me, I can't wait for you to see them!

Sadly, Men In Black is being retired this year. It's been difficult to find new pieces of artwork for that creature. The last couple of years, I was lucky to find even two pieces of art for the prompt. Anyone who still wants to write for Men In Black can do so, but I won't be able to send artwork prompts for it.

Dates to Know:

September 7: Sign ups start.
September 16: Sign ups end.
September 18: 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!

Feel free to promote/pimp the challenge everywhere that it is allowed.

Don't worry if your story is a little late. I'm always around for a few days after the Master List goes up.

All prompts have been sent. One person got their prompts by PM to DW. Please check spam filters if you don't have an email by this evening. So far, it doesn't look like anything bounced.

Here is the Spook Me art folder for those who want to browse around:

And here is the Scarecrow collection that trillingstar put together:

If you have any question or problems, please let me know. I'll get to them as soon as possible.

In spite of a few bumps along the way, I'm super excited about this year's Spook Me!

Have fun writing!
