The Dark Watchers

“As he was stopped in front of the garage door, a voice said, “Come here.” Allen prayed to God someone was playing a trick on him. Even someone trespassing on his property would be better than something he didn’t have an explanation for. He crept around the side of the garage and looked into the alley…

The Dark Watchers are dark, shadowy entities that lurk in the shadows and haunt the  Santa Lucia Mountains. Are they really there or are they simply an urban legend? Young couple Carlos and Julia find themselves coming face to face with the dark watchers when they get lost on a hike. The dark watchers don’t seem to want to hurt them but they are getting aggressively close to Carlos and Julia. Julia makes an offering but will it be enough? 

Then Dan takes us to Wisconsin to hear the tale of the Tallman family. Like any young family on a budget, the Tallman parents are excited when they find a good deal on a set of used bunkbeds. Unfortunately, they will come to regret this purchase when they bring home more than they bargained for. The nightmares, the encounters, the disembodied voices can almost be explained away. It’s the fires and the soot that have the Tallman’s concerned. Will they make it out alive? 

Lynze has one, big, fat, juicy amazing tale this week! A life long following? Haunting? Shadow? What do you call it when you are pretty damn sure “you” have been following you around for the entirety of your life? A dopplegänger is supposedly a version of yourself that appears to you as an omen, a warning. However, there don’t seem to be any rules about how long a dopplegänger might stick around before one might experience whatever it is they are there to warn you about. Lo, a longtime fan, has been dealing with her shadow friend for the majority of her life. It’s been nearly impossible to find out what “She” wants. Or at least it seemed that way until her boyfriend passed away. Was that the entire purpose of “her” following Lo around? And if so, why is she STILL there?!

Opening Sumerian protection spell (adapted): 
Whether thou art a ghost that hath come from the earth, or a phantom of night that hath no home… or one that lieth dead in the desert… or a ghost unburied… or a demon or a ghoul… Whatever thou be until thou art removed… thou shalt find here no water to drink… Thou shalt not stretch forth thy hand to our own… Into our house enter thou not. Through our fence, breakthrough thou not… we are protected though we may be frightened.  Our life you may not steal, though we may feel SCARED TO DEATH.”
