I received so many messages to make this! And so I finally did. I’m only putting the freakiest of all the stories.
STORIES THAT RECEIVED THE MOST INTENSE REACTIONS
Here are stories I’ve posted. I get them mostly from reddit no sleep (not every story here is from there however). They’ve received intense reactions from tumblr and reddit users alike. Some of them maybe long but trust me every word is worth it. 
Betsy the Doll: most popular creepy story I’ve post, I’ve received the most insane reactions from you guys about this story
Annie96 is typing: an interactive chat story, nothing will pop out at you but the screen shakes a bit. the ending creepy a lot of people out.
My father’s long, long legs: another interactive spooky story
I found a girl I knew in a porno: extremely sickening, going to put a huge trigger warning here for the horrifying NSFW concepts
Dr.Ramsey stalker story: some people have twisted minds, and what makes this even more horrifying is how the user who posted this claimed these are real life events
Autopilot: voted the most popular no sleep reddit story
630-296-7536: what’s horrifying about this is how when you call the number you hear the exact same terrifying message as said in the story. It honestly works.
Something off in my basement: a story written by horror writer Cliff Barlow. It’s both upsetting and terrifying. 
String Theory: this one really makes you think
The story of her holding an orange: while the creepiness isn’t apparent at first to some, many found it psychologically twisting
The girl in the log: tumblr users really liked this story, while it is haunting it has a sweet ending
The shadow web: what’s really freaky about this is that it based on the real concept of something called the deep web
True Schizophrenia Story: a terrifying look into someone’s real hallucinations
Grandpa’s 2nd Voice: what makes it haunting is how there are true cases of this story
Lunch: don’t read this while eating is all I can tell you
Why I didn’t shower for 21 years: beautifully written and you probably won’t want to be alone in a bathroom after this
Conversation over skype: when I first read this one I got shivers down my spine, talk about a twist
World’s Best Psychologist: this really messes with your minds and leaves you more questions than answers
The Creature: it knows. it knows everything.

THE INTERROGATION CHAMBER: 3D AUDIO

I can’t begin to tell you how awesome this is, it sounds as if it’s happening DIRECTLY in front of you oh man. I took my headphone off at a certain part and thought that something fell near me. 

Basically put on your headphones (make sure the left goes to the left ear and the right goes to the right ear), close your eyes and relax. 

As the audio says “this contains some violent and scary scenes, do not listen if this may be bad for you”

ORIGINAL VIDEO (credits for this audio go to medielebbet)

Thank you to tumblr user wallmountedtrex for putting this in the sixpenceee tag and bringing it to my attention!

Anonymous asked: You may have answered this before, but what is your opinion/suggestions/etc. on using maps as worldbuilding tools? My world's basically going to be a variation of Earth, with different borders and political structures from the world as we know it today.

worldweaving:

Maps are excellent to use for worldbuilding, whether you take inspiration from existing maps, or make your own! When I make a new fantasy world, I usually make at least a simple map of it, so I know what the land is like and where major cities are. It doesn’t have to be fancy, but it’s useful to mark down anything you think might be important to the story.

There are probably computer programs out there that can help you build a map, but I usually just draw mine in an art program. I am a mediocre artist at best, and like I said - it doesn’t have to be fancy. As long as it works for you, it’s fine.

Here are some things you might want to mark on a map:

  • Countries/their capital city
  • Major cities
  • Mountains/other geography
  • Rivers/lakes/other bodies of water
  • Bridges
  • Forests
  • Major landmarks
  • Temples/monuments
  • Dangerous locations (and figure out why they’re dangerous!)
  • Hidden treasures
  • Locations of magical objects
  • Ruins

You should also consider where your world grows/gets its food. If it doesn’t import its food, it’ll need some sort of place to grow agriculture (most likely some portion of flat, fertile land). Look up what kind of crops will grow in a climate like your world’s - generally, societies need grains, legumes (beans, peas, etc) and a few vegetables to have a balanced diet. Meat is generally something that societies with more money/resources have, but societies can subsist on the diet I mentioned above without meat.

Major cities tend to develop on the edges of bodies of water, since people need water to survive, and waterways are often important trade routes that allow the city to interact with people from other places.

As for your story in particular, maybe think about why the borders are so different in your version of Earth, if you haven’t already. Those conflicts or stories could provide a lot of interesting ideas for plot, or at least interesting background if nothing else. Hope that helped!
