This is from

For anyone not familiar with these, nosleeps are horror stories written as if they were true.

Here are a few which I found exceptionally good. Post any that you deem worthy!

Good list, but you forgot these:

So I'm not sure the links will work, but there you go.

They did work. Thank you!

Here's another good one: The town my great-grandfather lived in as a boy had a rule

Here's another one I like. It's really artsy:

This was one of the best this year, imho, especially with all the data collection that has been going on. Perfect on the day of iOS 11's release, right?

I'm not sure this one was meant to be scary, but I thought it was really sweet.

Here is a story referenced at the end of The Black Library (it could be thought as a kind of prequel) posted by >>1.

This is Creepy Pasta, which has similar stories. I am posting it here, because it's very well written and fits the genre, excuse the topic violation.

"Don't answer the door" was removed a week ago. Anyone got a summary?

19 Name: Anonymous : 2018-11-19 14:53 ID:4p/uphT7 [Del]

That's sad. It was about a guy who, as a kid, had a mysterious man visit them, and every single member of his family just accepted him as a friend. Later on, it turned out that the guy was an alien, and if they disturbed him or questioned him, he turned violent and destroyed everything in sight.

By the way, The Old Man Down the Road is sadly no longer available, it was a great story.

Thank Reddit, I was browsing a series in nosleep and came across a comment which pointed me to the restored version of that.

Two somewhat related stories in a very obscure way (my mind is weird). One is the top 1st story of all time according to reddit, the other one was posted five days ago and it's pretty good too.

I called the in-dream hotline for escaping nightmares. I know, it sounds ridiculous, but my husband never would have otherwise discovered the sex. Or the dead body.:

OK, some more subs (some of these stories are also in nosleep).
I won't confirm nor deny that this is also for me to remember them.

Weird interconnected stories (and some more). Sorry for vague description: and .

Angels, gods, mithology: and

Other favorites: and

Finally, something similar to nosleep, which is not linked in nosleep for some reason:

Remember the hotel rooms things?
The cryptic compendium (nosleep reposts, and then more):

Enjoy, and don't get lost!

Last post doesn't work, and for some reason removeddit doesn't load posts now, only comments.

Anyhow, this seems a continuation of the penultimat e post:
