Open to all forum members, even after it starts!

This month's prompt: Some Things Dark and Dangerous

Choose a word from this list of Lovecraftian words or this list of obscure words (or one from both if you're feeling ambitious). Use your chosen word(s) to craft your post. It doesn't have to be Lovecraftian or even horror, but it should be dark, or unsettling, or scary, or Halloweenish in general.

Simply post in this thread to join. Each post should be less than 1000 words if possible. Read and comment on other participants' posts if you possibly can--they'll be doing the same for you!

I'll let you know in this thread when it's your turn.
Once your turn comes up, you have two days to complete your post. When you are finished, please post a link to your post on the thread so I can let the next person in line know that their turn is up. If you signed up but find yourself unable to participate or need to be moved around in the schedule, please PM me or post in the thread. If you fail to post on your blog and on the thread within two days, I'll bump you down to the end of the line on the third day; you'll get a second chance at the end of the month.

Please include a list of all participants' blogs in your blog post, and keep in mind we're not starting until the second Thursday of the month to give people time to sign up.

May I request October 10th for my post? Or a day a little after that? Thanks and I'm glad to participate for the first time.

Sure, I'll slot you in once we have some other participants. Welcome aboard!

Anywhere from ten to twenty, typically. A lot seems to depend on how into the prompt people are.

Great! I'm looking for some new followers, is this an event where everyone follows each other's blogs? I have already followed yours, Orion, so I think I'll follow everyone else's too.

Officially, all you have to do is comment; following is strictly optional. That said, I know that there's been plenty of it going around :)

I'll have another go at the chain, if it's okay.
I'm afraid it's strictly forbidden. You, and only you, are prohibited from participation this month only.

Just kidding :) Glad to have you aboard!
