Oh god we should all get the day after this drops off from work cause we’re just going read all of them til we can’t sleep and be useless the next day.

Also the fucked upness of each year’s stories being like 75% spooky and 25% oh yeah that was a stalker men are horror stories.

This thread seems less scary in context of the next one about climate change.

Except for the 25% of the stories that are about stalkers.

Still getting to the Jezebel stories (I recall how good some were other years). But if you also need a chuckle, read the comments under jenfullmoon's link, at least through the one about a container of bones.

Wow, this story is... spooky and horrible and yet intensely satisfying.

Thanks for making this post! I always forget Jezebel does this feature but I love it every year.
