Challenged Adventurer(s): @Wolfical, @Synnoev, @Strident, @soundofmind, @Steggy, @Persistence, @saentiel, @LadyLizz, @Sheytato, @Crysi (just in case)
Storybook: Cul-De-Sac
The Challenge: It's a Friday morning in mid September: move-in day for the students! The neighbors have taken the day off of work so that they can make sure, as discreetly as possible, that everything goes wrong.

In between my post and the next, there's a gap of about a week. So whoever posts next, your post should begin on the Friday morning of move-in day! You can talk about the real estate tour day of my post but there should be no excessive backtracking.

For the Students

a) Discover at least one creepy thing about 823.
b) In some way, have your character express either regret or excitement for deciding to move in to 823.
c) Have your character open up about their thoughts about one of the neighbors to another student.

For the Neighbors

a) Spy on or stalk one student in particular. It's up to you whether or not your character gets caught.
b) Use your character's skills in haunting to frighten the students in some way while they're moving in.
c) Use all of the following words or their derivatives in your post: "blood," "shadow," and "hearth."

Completion Time: 1 month; 1 post
Credits Awarded: You'll get a single credit just for posting, and another credit for each of the three alpha-challenges (the a b c ones) pertaining to your type of character! So that's four possible points up for grabs, not to mention the Captain's Challenge of the month. (If you're posting while the October one is still active, it's especially perfect.)

Most importantly, have fun with your post! If you have any questions, the DT is there for ya.

Challenge expired! It was intriguing, so hopefully the next one is too!

I have exams coming up, so I wouldn't be interesting in posting next. But I'm definitely still interested in this storybook!

@ everyone also! If anyone is interested in posting next but struggling to come up with ideas, or just wants help or someone to write with to motivate them, I'm 100% up for collabing in a wfp! So feel free to hit me up if you want!

This planet has - or rather had - a problem, which was this: most of the people living on it were unhappy for pretty much all of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movement of small green pieces of paper, which was odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy.
— Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
