I was going to try for something fancy in this challenge, but then I figured why mess with a great concept like the Hallowe'en ghost story?
So that's your challenge - write me a ghost story.
To be more specific - a story involving the paranormal/supernatural in some way - but scary - after all, this is the Hallowe'en challenge!
So we can have Mistral
's Star Trek fairies, but they need to be eating the colonists!
Any questions - type 'em here.
EDIT: will also allow "apparently paranormal / supernatural stories" so the Star Trek fairies can actually be Orion smugglers if you want. Just keep it scary and, at least at first, paranormal/supernatural.
Oh and closing date will be midnight October 31st (greenwich mean time - so I'll have all the stories for my Hallowe'en
