So Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark has seen a bit of a resurgence due to the movie, though I personally will NEVER tire of the book. I also think it's nothing short of a crime against art to deprive the stories of the original art by Stephen Gimmell.
But...BUT IT SCARES THE CHILDREN!
Sure. At first. But that's the thing: life is scary. That's why we have scary stories, to help us deal with the chaos of the real world. I loved Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark as a kid, so it's no surprise that I love the channel of my man, Moonraven.
What is this?
I'll put my money where my mouth is.
Below is a story, not a long one, but a story. Further on, you'll see the response it got. Enjoy at your leisure:

It was the first of June and a cool wind ruffled the cattails poking from the banks of the lake. The man in the moon sat like a corroded silver dollar in the inky sky, with not a single cloud present to obscure the view. The banks of the water were placid, though the willows on the banks moved in a slow waltz to the comforting breeze. From across the water drifted a blatting rhythm that rose and fell, beating through the air:
Oomp pa pa
Oomp pa pa
Oomp pa pa PA!

So Halloween's almost here, and I was wondering what y'all would like to see from me. I can do one of three things, but it will all depend on how soon I start. So I got three options, and you guys can pick:
1) HOrror Story-I have several in the make. One in particular, "The Flayed Man", would make a creepy addition to the site, though I don't know if I'll get it finished. I'd love to read it aloud and take a recording, but we'll see. If the demand is big enough, I could definitely make it happen.
2) VIgnettes- this would be similar to last year, in which I posed a quick, creepy picture every other day in Far Side/Edward Gorey fashion.
Oh no prob! We DA webcomicers got to stick together!
Seriously though, I REALLY like this! I'm sorry I haven't been following it as much lately: i recently returned to higher ed and am working on a degree. But I like your Euro style a LOT, and the village and world you created wit this comic is just wonderful!
