The Black-Eyed Kids

Click here to read a spooky little account of black-eyed, possibly-vampiric children. Kind of like 'The Lost Boys', or an episode of "The X-Files."

It's supposedly true, of course. But even if it's a complete fabrication, it still effectively creeped me out. It would be cool to write a story based on it, but I imagine Stephen King has already done that five times over.

Dude ... *raises an eyebrow* That would indeed would be rad to write about were it not for the utter cliche'd-ness of it.

Re:
Well yeah, thus my comment about it already being written five times by Stephen King alone.

But thanks for the disdain, all the same. Spices up a Monday morning.

Re:
*raises an eyebrow* I know, I was just acknowledging your comment. Agreement. Not disdain. *blink*

Ah - misread the tone. Sorry. I've seen so many snarky, catty comments on the web lately, I've got shields up automatically these days.

Re:
*laugh* S'okay. Damn to the depths snarky, catty comments. With an umbrella!

A good thing to do to your enemies is throw vanilla extract on them: not only does it burn the eyes, but it makes them smell nice, too. ^^*

Heheh. If only they were close enough.
I bet peppermint oil would really burn, too...hmmm...

Weird stuff. Stories about creepy kids are the worst - I guess coz children are meant to be sweet and innocent, or something.

I always find child-ghost stories the creepiest, probably for that reason.

*shudders* Creepy. The thing that gets me is that the guy was instinctively unlocking his door before he even realized it. Nobody suspects a child...and somehow things are more grotesque when they come from the supposedly more innocent members of society.

Re:
Yeah - very vampiric, that inducement to do something without meaning to. It seems much more like an X-Files episode than a real incident, of course, but it's a good campfire story!

So reading this alone in my house was a pretty bad idea! *rushes to switch on Conan* Thanks for the Monday night scare! ; )

Hehe - I know. I was dumb enough to think of it when trying to fall asleep last night. Eeeek.

Have to admit, I'm tempted to write something about that too. Must remember that it's a cliche...
The horror fan in me- i.e. the masochist who enjoyed The Vampire Lestat- wants it to be true, but I doubt it is. Sounds like the kind of stunt I'd've pulled as a kid if I'd had really good contacts.

Re:
Well, it's a cliche because it's powerful - weird-looking eyes freak us out, as humans. So do children who act too smoothly grown-up. They both give us that unnerved sense of not right. So maybe all we have to do is think of other things that instantly feel "not right," and write about those. :)
