Freeform Horror

Hallways*: a free form horror meme

Wherever you meant to go is not where you are. When you look back, there is no door.

A hallway stretches out in front of you, with branching corridors and closed doors as far as the eye can see. There are hints of other people around - sounds and voices of others who have found themselves trapped in this space, or those who were originally here. Not everyone is friendly.

Just remember: any door you go through will cease to exist. You must go forwards to get out.

So, will you make it?

*It doesn't have to be a hallway, you might end up in a kitchen that tries to eat you, or knee deep in water of a basement somewhere when you were just on the 18th story.

Warning: tags in this post will deal with themes that include violence, blood, gore and other horror topics. Please communicate your preferences with your threading partners.

Starters and thread hopping is encouraged.

[She's been here for hours. Maybe longer. It feels like she hasn't really gone anywhere, though. Which frustrates her to no end. She goes through a door and at least she sees someone ahead. The voices had been too quiet, even for her hearing, and she had begun to wonder if anyone was actually in here with her.

She moves through the corridor, her hand trailing against the surface of the wall. It numbs her fingertips, but she maintains the contact. He still seems far away and as she cants her head, she's certain that she knows that stance -- that stride. Those shoulders.]

How did Emily get stuck in this place? And how did she get stuck there with Joshua Washington? They were with all their friends not too long ago, but then they were here, just the two of them. The how is muddled, and whenever she tries to process their arrival, her mind is left blank. This is so stupid.

She squints to peer down the darkened hallway, and when she can't seem to find the end, she makes a low, irritated noise.

"Okay Washington, is this supposed to be some sort of stupid prank?" Her arms fold over each other as she shoots the brunette an unamused glare.

[Light streams in from the windows all along one side of the hall, hanging plants throwing odd shapes across the wooden paneling on the other side. There are several doors all along the length of the hallway, but none of them are open, leaving her to guess which rooms lay behind them.

She herself had just come in through a dining room, which was supposed to have been her apartment.]

[Wherever you were before now, you certainly aren't now. You've found yourself inside a basement of sorts, barely lit with dimmed and dying lightbulbs. Even more, the floor is flooded and it seems like it's getting deeper as you move forward. Is there an incline or is the basement filling up with water? There are other doors around; certainly one of them has to be the exit, right? Of course, it's not so easy; there may be hidden traps within the water. As well, you're not alone and the playful giggles are certainly not going to give you good vibes here...]

(OoC: You don't have to run with this, but I like the idea of turning Marie into something of a "monster".)

[How did he even get here? As far as he's concerned the door he came through should have led to a roof, not a basement, but for some reason he can't get back to where he was. He tried to send a grasshopper to Eiji, too, but to no avail. It seems like not even the candroids can figure out how to get out of here.

So he's been exploring, instead. Presently, he's coming to the conclusion that the direction he's going probably isn't the best one. Nor is staying put, because that won't get him anywhere, and the water rising might just be the state of this room in general. So instead he's making his way toward the nearest door, hoping that might lead him somewhere more useful and less wet.]

[The hallway seems to stretch on almost endlessly without bend or turn. At least the length of it is broken up by doors, some of which are unlocked when tried and most that are locked or have no doorknob to begin with. Things are broken up here and there by alcoves, all decorated with chairs or small tables topped with vases of long dead flowers. Some even have windows that bear a soft blue-tinted light and full round moons beaming in just beyond them.

There's a small blonde stopped in one patch of that moonlight, peering at the window in the alcove. She looks neither happy nor sad in the moment, though apparently she is curious. She speaks aloud finally.]

It doesn't make sense. How could all the windows face the moon?

[The windows are on both sides of the hallway after all.]

[Stepping out of the Institute and finding himself in a hallway was unsettling and had him immediately on guard, his fingers curling around the hilt of one of his blades before he turned to check the door he'd just come through and found blank wall.

The hallway itself was poorly lit and Alec only moved after he'd checked that it was clear, footsteps taking him to the first door.]

[Well Snow was a bit preoccupied in the hallway he had ended up in. Enough so that he didn't notice any sounds. That could have something to do with that the thing he was occupying himself with was to crush the mirrors decorating the walls. He had already worked through a big chunk of them, sharp shards littering the floor.]

John Constantine shone the torch ahead of him, picking out more doors, more symbols and even more darkness. The batteries in the thing was dying slowly. It had been bright but was starting to fail, usually as he thought he saw something up ahead.

"I've counted, and I've taken over five thousand steps down this hallway."

He stopped before one of the corridors branching off, taking the cigarette from his mouth. A slow exhale sent smoke curling out in front of him. It hung in the air before twisting about into a rough arrow shape that pointed further down the main hallway. The distant scream from the corridor was an exclamation point of avoiding that particular one.

"Nothing to it, Zee tells me. Just hold onto the string. Didn't mention that the string could be eaten by something."

The string and a part of his sleeve to be exact. Constantine hoped she didn't follow the string in. Finding part of his shirt in a pile of scat from whatever toothy creature it had been would give too many people hope that he'd finally met his well-deserved end.

Another fifteen minutes (and a cigarette) brought John to another branching off passage.

"Time to find out a little more," he said to himself as he searched his pockets for spell components. Damn shame he hadn't brought his bag. "I'm missing happy hour for this shit."

"Do you hear that?" Karen's face is haunted, hearing the whispers that echo in the hallway, familiar voices, unfamiliar voices. She draws her hands up her arms, peering down to the single light casting a long shadow down the empty hall.

[ At first, this hadn't been so eerie. She's a magician, so things like this are fun to her. Except every time she turns around, the door is gone, and she can't exactly get a grip on where she is or what is going on. No, it's not fun anymore... she's pretty sure there was someone behind the door she just passed. Was that crying and pleas for help she'd just heard? Swallowing the lump in her throat, she pushes onward, opening the next door.

What greets her next is what appears to be a hospital. She's not stupid, though -- she hasn't shut the door behind her yet, and she hasn't gone through the threshold either.

It's quiet enough, and sterile white, save for a streak of blood that has been dragged along the wall leading through a pair of double doors. She stares for a moment, shifting because it just looks empty enough, but... should she go through? She can't quite make up her mind... ]

A strange place, isn't it?

[ The voice that drifts to Trucy's ears is muffled, and its origin is a figure in a crow-feather cape and dark clothes, with a plague doctor's mask over their face. They lean against the wall just behind Trucy, arms folded and head tilted downward. ]

Doors that lead nowhere, and yet anywhere. If I didn't know better, I'd say this was some strange nightmare.
