:iconghostsplz: Dreams and Nightmares! DEADline: 30th of November time zone PDT

Dreams and Nightmares... a new challenge beginsDreams and Nightmares are a part of life. But despite the fact that all of us dream, nobody knows why we dream. Nobody knows why a dream can be wildly exhilarating or deeply disturbing. Nobody knows why sometimes we remember our dreams with alarming alacrity but at other times we let them fade into obscurity. One thing we do know, however, is that we have always been profoundly fascinated by our dreams. In these dreams, we meet a version of ourselves that we did not even know existed. In our dreams, we see ourselves.
Ever since the ancient times we have tried to record and interpret our dreams. Dream interpretation was recorded in Egyptian papyri, Roman codices and Jewish scrolls. It has formed a large part of Freud and Jung's psychoanalysis. But despite the numerous dream dictionaries we can find on bookshelves, our dreams continue to define and elude us. We go to meet ourselves every night, and some of us wake up with battle scars.
But that does not stop us from dreaming. We reach ou

:iconhalloween-hq: Welcome to Halloween 2015: End Date November 5th

Welcome to Halloween 2015
Welcome to Halloween 2015!
This year for Halloween, you have decided to try your hand at ghost hunting, and Palacio de la Muerte is calling your name. Palacio de la Muerte is a haunted house and grounds that lies just outside the bounds of your city. Nearby residents have reported hearing strange noises and seeing unnatural lights hovering over the area. And, the neighborhood has been abuzz about a couple of university students who entered the premises the previous Halloween and were never seen again. The thought of it sends chills down your spine.
Nevertheless, you are brave, you are ready, and you have nothing to lose. Grab your flashlight, and let's go!
How to play
As you go along your path, you will encounter four monsters and a score of characters who once lived in or around the mansion. You will not receive a list of who they are up-front; we will tell you who the first one is, and, as you progress, new characters wi
   IMPORTANT UPDATES about Halloween gameHey guys!
So, we'll be posting important updates on this blog.... keep an eye on it.
First, it is really important for you to know that you need to go to ALL characters. That means if someone tells you that you should visit DeviantA OR DeviantB, you should really see both of them.... just choose who to go to first. :)
Second, we are disqualifying people who do not work alone, as it says in the rules. That means you shouldn't post clues or thoughts about answers where others can see them (or really, at all).
More to come . . .

:iconcrliterature: and :iconcommunityrelations: Presents All-Hallow's Tales Contest ~ Ghost Story: DEADline October 25th

All Hallow's Tales Contest - Ghost StoryThis contest is generously sponsored by prize donors and:
:iconcrliterature: :iconcommunityrelations:
Ghouls and Ghasts and ne'er do wells, welcome once again to the LaBORatory for our annual celebration of stories in the season of all things spooky.
This year, we return to the abandoned house at the end of the block, with the upstairs window from which something always seems to wave at passersby. We drive along the lonely stretch of road at midnight, eyes unblinking, hoping to catch a glimpse of the girl who hitches a ride, only to vanish from the passenger seat when we pass the old cemetery. We point trembling fingers over the rail at the spectral ship that has spelled the doom of generations of captains and crew. We roll the ball into the old, dark nursery, and wait to see if it will roll back out again.
This year, we are telling ghost stories. Have a seat by the fire, won't you?


This is a Halloween-inspired, Literature-only contest asking for

CONTEST UnframedNature: Mystical Scenery of AUTUMN:iconzubatlaplz: Welcome to Unframed-Nature's Next BIG Contest :iconzubatlaplz:
It's the Perfect Time to Announce Our AUTUMN CONTEST! :clap:
:iconpumpkinborderplz: AUTUMN CONTEST 2015: "MYSTICAL SCENERY of AUTUMN!" :iconpumpkinborderplz:
MYSTICAL: In this case, mystical means, magical, mysterious, a bit strange or spooky.
SCENERY: In this case, scenery means, landscapes, natural settings, views with at least some to much distance, non-urban like forests or mountains or countryside for examples.
Of course this is an AUTUMN Contest, so keep it an Autumn "feel" - and if it's MYSTICAL, that should help.  It's okay if Autumn is not the same for everyone- whatever it is for where you live is okay. MYSTICAL should keep it okay for everyone. We'll see. :)
This Contest is open to ANY MEDIA which is able to portray the theme,
the obvious ones, perhaps some not-so obviou
