It should be a being that stalks you and is everywhere at once yet nowhere to be found. Whenever you hear a creak from upstairs it's either something natural or this thing coming downstairs for you.
You sometimes hear a voice on the verge of falling asleep, but maybe something is leaning towards you and whispers into your ear. It could also just be your mind playing tricks, but it doesn't explain why you're shivering so fiercly.
They say when you get off an elevator at ___ he leaves work with you. He follows you home, and lives with you. You will begin to hear him when you're alone, tapping on the window like he did when he waited that day for it to end, he's there with you. You'll begin to notice things missing, from your kitchen to your room. He'll be be wearing your clothing when he ___
>>15575307 You open the elevator door and he just stands there motionless. Nobody can really say what he looks like, when they think back he's just a fuzzy black shape. You know he's around when the tv turns to static
>>15575373 He want's to take over your life? Like nothing happend to other ones but he gets into your routine and at the end kills you to take over your life? Maybe commits suicide with your body later and goes hunting his new victim?
I was thinking that maybe something more primal would work, like feeding for example. But instead of feeding off of flesh, he feeds on the breath of people. That way when someone starts seeing the sympthoms and asociating any kind of breathing anormality to it, they would know it's happening to them.
Well it seems like we've got an elevator man who likes to follow his prey home and consume their lives. But if others have seen him too then he doesn't just follow anyone home, perhaps we could come up with a sort of midnight man ritual that he chooses his prey with?
I have a better idea. They call him Tyrone. After an accident while working as a human guinea pig for the US government, he ends up invisible, and with a video camera stuck to his non-dominant hand. The government tried to kill him, but his invisibility caused problems.
Fortunately, Tyrone is not a murderous man. Unfortunately, he is very perverted; he even has a power fetish. Furthermore, the chemicals that made him invisible also increased his libido several million times over, forcing him to be constantly in a state of arousal, looking for new fap material.
When he finds a young couple having sex, he films their entire liason, then burns it to several discs. One he keeps for himself. The others he sends to the family of the victims, pretending it's a family movie from them. He gets off on this greatly, sometimes even filming the family's reactions and fapping to them as well.
I think an obvious choice then could be somehing like getting off on said floor, but that's too easy. Maybe he always got off on the third floor so he tap on the window of the woman he loved and wave good evening. But one evening she wasn't there, becasue she was getting amrried to another man? And it was on the third floor where he got off to kill himself. So whenever someone leaves their work but get's off on the third floor isntead of the first or basement, he follows them or something? Doesn't need to be that specific or anything, I'm sti
He slowly kills his victims. After you see him in the elevator the first time, he starts showing up more often and slowly take the victims life energy awaz kinda like >> 15575457 So >>15575454 would also be possible
>>15575481 This is good. Maybe if you get up into an elevator at a certain quiet hours? It doesnt have to be at night, it could be any hour while everything is too calm (I worked at a 18 floor building, mine office was at 11 floor. I remember that it freaked me out when it was around 3-4pm and probably everyone was workind and the elevators area was so empty and quiet)
>>15575483 There is no known way to banish Tyrone from your bedroom. All you can do is be extremely careful whom you have sex with. If you hear the phone ring the day after having sex, it's already too late.
>>15575505 >>15575508 He leaves with you if you get off the elevator and go home. So, if you step into an empty elevator that you didn't call, that gets his attention. If you get off on the ground floor, he starts to follow you. If you go home, he's there to stay.
He follows you home, and learns about you. He doesn't cause harm at first. He slowly starts manipulating your belongings, moving,breaking and hiding them. Eventually this bores him and he starts interacting with you. Calling your name when you least expect it. Tapping your shoulder when no ones's there. Making you look unstable around your loved ones and causing general confusion and self doubt. Then he drains you. He works his way into your mind. As soon as you acknowledge his presence you let him into your mind. Once he's there his consciousness takes over. He feeds on human experiences, something he misses since he became ethereal. Eventually he kills the host, finds a new experience and starts the cycle again
>>15575814 pastas (and horror in general) that are written like this, where they tell you about something...i.e. "evil scary man is scary and evil because mustard" (or whatever) aren't even slightly scary.
it's much more effective imo to take the outline you have sketched up here and apply it to a story about someone. One person telling the story about someone, or about themselves is much scarier than just telling us about some entity that does vague things to vague people.
not sure if you were leaning this direction, but it didn't look like it from the previous posts so I thought I'd mention it.
>>15575830 I was using this as a basic outline that we could follow and write stories from, I guess I got carried away. The original point was something that we could write greentext, vlogs, threads, or if anyone wanted to, potential vlogs

>>15575900 Atlanta otp East Georgia, I have a sony handycam (I think it's the same exact one they use in marblehornets) I'm the only character so far. I play (insert name here) who tries to document test rituals and other paranormal things from websites like /x/ and one of them turns out to be the real deal. There will probably be a cool plot twist as well. Still working out the kinks.
>>15576007 Ah. That's not super far, but far enough that I can't help out in person. Still, just say if there's anything you need help with that I can help with from two states away and I'm down. Sounds like it could be really interesting.
>>15576007 >>15576121 I would like to offer my services as well, if you'd need it. I am in Ohio, so I also couldn't help in person, but I do have experience with Video Editing if it would help thin out you workloads.
>>15575718 I like that idea. Supposedly, it feeds from your experiences, so the most logic reasoning should be not to have them at all. So, it drives people into reclusion. Making one´s life uneventful. And that'd be the only way to get rid of it.
I'm actually pretty happy that I could contribute with this. It's my first night back on /X/ since college started again. :D
Anywho, I think his schtick should be that he should push his host to suicide, or some other drastic measure to stop his presence, like deafening oneself to down out the voice. Maybe his voice starts out quietly and distant, but grows to an insufferable cacophony of inhuman screaming. Maybe he takes a part of himself from each victim and as a result, his voice sounds like a chorus of each victim speaking slightly out of time with eachother?
Also, we could call him shadowman, or simply the entity, because no one knows what it really is and the fear of it comes from the unknown.
