Story of the Night - October 21, 2013

First, one for the Short category.  In the spirit of describing without spoiling, let's just say this story will give you whatever the opposite of a warm and fuzzy is.  Not quite the jimmies being rustled, but somewhere along the lines of an uneasy, sinking feeling that humans can be a terrible species of creature.  With that said, here's Ghost Costumes by IncredulousCockatiel.

Second, we have one for the Single category.  This story made the cut for the evening for two reasons.  One, it is creepy and realistic, which are the two main ingredients of many great NoSleep stories; this story is no exception.  Two, the writings is worth taking a moment to appreciate on its own.  Author LittleQuark presented Construction.  Take that one in, enjoy it.

Third is something of an unusual entry for this nightly thing of ours.  The story is The Fogknife by Gristledorf, and it is a very well written story with some classic horror elements.  I was torn between it and Construction for tonight's Single category selection.  I have chosen to include it here not as the Story of the Night (though it is the stuff those selections are made of), but because of a comment on the story.  User supremecrafters' comment (found here) is what I like to refer to as a NoSleep Remedy.  It's one of those comments that can alleviate the self-inflicted restlessness we bring on ourselves by frequenting NoSleep.

That's it for tonight.  I am hoping that one of the many ongoing series on NoSleep will come to a conclusion some time soon so that I can post one for the Series category.

Thanks for coming by, see you tomorrow, and sleep tight.
