I have seen it 5 times.
When I was eight i had a bad dream so I woke up and I saw it.I asked what the fuck are you it said I’m the rake and left. It happend again the next day but it said “you will raze the ones you hate and kill the ones you love” then lunged at me and clawed my chest and left. So then I was on my floor bleedingnand innextreme pain wondering what is that. I hadn’t seen it until I was 11 then itnsaid It said miss me then left. Then when I moved it said you can’t run from me. Now I’m 14 and it came to my house today hell bent on revenge it said nothing then ran at me and gashed open mvy side then left.
This is all true, and I need help. About six or seven years ago I saw the Rake while I was walking to my friend’s house. I live in Arizona, and it was late winter in the early morning, so the lighting was really dim. I had gotten about three hundred yards away from my house and still had about a mile more of desert to cross before I reached him. But out of the corner of my eye I saw movement. It was pale, a light grey color. It had long limbs and no hair and it looked human at first, but I looked closer. It looked like its limbs were broken, it had the wrong proportions to be human. It was horribly thin, and slinking in a fashion that was a mix between Gollum from Lord of the Rings and like a dog. I stop walking and look at it, and it stops and looks at me. Its face was the scariest thing I have seen in my entire life. It had a bit of a muzzle, like a 40* angled mouth, that was a darker grey than the rest of the skin. Its eyes were a solid color, almost perfectly round, and a black or dark grey. Its ears were positioned like a human’s but shaped like a dog’s or an elf’s, with the ends pointed and slightly hairy and very thin. It just looked at me, and I could not seem to move. Then it faced me full on and I turned around and ran as fast as I could toward my house. I’m not sure if I was screaming or even breathing on that run home, all I can really remember is jumping over bushes, my heart in my through, my stomach in knots. I was too scared to be wondering if I was going to die, I remember that much. I was 11 at the time, but it wasn’t a childhood fear of the unknown, it was deeper, more primal. All I could think about was getting to safety. I got home okay and locked every door I could and shut the rest, locking myself in the bathroom. My parents got home later and told me I imagined it. By a year later I thought I had imagined it.
But then my hallucinations of sort happened. I’m narcoleptic and when I wake up I suffer from sleep paralysis and hallucinations. The hallucinations are never like what I had these times, though. When my closet was still clean and didn’t have a door, I would wake up in the middle of the night, early morning- any time when the house was asleep it seemed. And I looked the first time, and saw the thing from a year earlier. It looked exactly the same, only a bit paler than before. It whispered to me…I don’t remember what it said, only that it whispered terrible things, and I was terrified. It happened off and on over the next two years, and each time brought a fresh two weeks of paranoid panic. I’ve taken to keeping my closet closed and packed tight with junk all the way to the top. But the thing is, I NEVER have the exact same hallucination twice, they always have a few details of difference, but it looked the same the whole time.
Ever since that first encounter while walking to my friends house, I have always been afraid of going out into the dark, of being somewhere alone, of other people sleeping when I am not. I always feel like- when I do and when I have to- that I’m not alone, or that something is watching me. I finally became an internet addict and rarely left the house unless I had to, to spare myself from that feeling. But I found out about Slenderman and got into Creepy Pasta. But when I read the Rake’s story for the first time, I had no problems. When I saw the picture, I knew it was the thing stalking me. And Rake stories have given me the goosebumps ever since.
Even now as I write my encounter down, I keep glancing up to the right and seeing the thumbnail profile picture of the rake by “+Follow fuckyeahtherake”. Every time I look at it, I get the same feeling I had when I was running. My heart seems to beat in my through, I freeze, waiting for it to reveal itself from behind me and kill me. It has never happened yet, I haven’t seen it in six months, but whenever I read or see something about the Rake, I get that same feeling, the same chill, the same raw, instinctual terror. I’ll end up seeing him again soon, he seems to visit every 3-8 months. Please, can someone tell me how to get him to stop? How to I kill him? I can’t deal with living in fear anymore!
why is anyone scared of slenderman his centre of mass is so high just push him over
A GIF showing what it’s like to wake up with sleep paralysis.
You’re forgetting the terrifying hallucinations
As someone who’s had sleep paralysis multiple times, let me tell you that if your mind has woken up and your body hasn’t DO NOT ATTEMPT TO OPEN YOUR EYES. Wake your body up first by slowly trying to move it, wiggle your toes and hands, then gradually work your way up until your body is fully awake. Opening your eyes when you have sleep paralysis is hard enough, but when you do there is a good chance you can see hallucinations like this.
I also have been the victim of sleep paralysis too many times, its bad enough without hallucinations, and so i thought i would add some info on sleep paralysis for anyone who suffers from it.
- As Shada said, wiggling toes and hands are good ways to snap out of it, although other small body parts work, even humming/talking (although things related to breathing might be more difficult). Just FOCUS on one part, its hard to regain control, but easy to become paralyzed again.
- Once you can move again, dont go right back to sleep, you might get paralyzed again. Or have the worst dreams of your life. Turn on a light, do something relaxing, like reading a book. Its been said that looking at a light before sleeping can prevent sleep paralysis.
- Sleeping on your back rises the chances of you getting sleep paralysis. If you get it a lot, pay attention to what position you are in when it occurs.
- Hallucinations, the best part, arent just things like in the gif above. They could be anything from just dark shapes floating around, to scary monsters and demons to sounds and feeling like something is shaking/touching you. I’ve had an experience where it felt like my bed was shaking while a metallic screeching sound roared whenever i tried to breath. Solution? ignore it. Its all you can do. Hallucinations cant actually do anything to you, and you cant move again if you’re being distracted. And once the paralysis is gone, so are the hallucinations.
- Most people dont really have to worry, they will only get it once or twice in their life. Maybe not even ever! :D
listen to the person above when they say you should NOT open your eyes, because chances that you’ll see something that is uniquely terrifying to you are strong. and if it’s really bad, you might even start seeing scary shit even when your eyes are closed
my tip is to imagine the most ridiculous image/scene ever and keep replaying it in your head, over and over again, like robert downey jr butt naked or hugh dancy being confronted by police for taking pictures of airport carpets, etcetera etcetera
trust me. it works
reblogging because this is important and because you mentioned Hugh Dancy and his ridiculous airport carpet obsession
No but really sleep paralysis is fucking terrifying.
This is excellent advise I must keep in mind.
Sleep Paralysis is, indeed, fucking terrifying (first-hand experience), so if it happened to you or to anyone you know and there’s a possibility it can happen again, read and share this.
I REALLY NEEDED TO KNOW THIS AND OTHERS SHOULD KNOW THIS TOO. This is the very god damn reason I can’t sleep in the fucking dark. I’ve only had it once but that one time was all I needed to erase my long time in therapy and bring me back to step 1. I had no fucking idea what sleep paralysis was and the fact that it gave you hallucinations. So please, if you have debilitating horror triggers, READ THIS. PLEASE DONT SCROLL PAST THIS, YOU MAY NEED THIS.
my shrink told me i had sleep paralysis my freshman year. It intensifies with stress in my life and makes sleeping almost unbearable. My sophomore year i would not sleep because when i woke up i was always terrified. I found, like those above, laying there with my eyes shut made the experience more bearable. Good luck my lovelies and know that you’re not alone!
Anonymous asked: what are some good creepy/weirdy/disturbing videos that you would recommend? im bored as all hell and need a good scare.
Well there friend I’ll try to keep the list relatively short but uh yeah okay here we go
Pencil Face is unbelievably unsettling (in a hilarious sort of way)
Prison Sex by Tool has a really cool/creepy music video
Whispered Faith is an incredible series focusing on the well known monster The Rake. Video Diary #4 and Video Diary #5 have been the most popular video’s so far, but believe me the whole series is unbelievably well done and certainly worth the watch
No Through Road which also has a second third and fourth episode to the series is great, especially if you like the old classic horror stories like the ‘hook man’
Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared and its sequel seem to be a lot of people’s favorites (and for a good reason too)
Daft Punk managed to freak everyone out with their horrific ending to the Prime Time of Your Life music video (tw for self harm)
The Technologic music video also provided the same uncomfortable feeling, but then again who isnt a bit creeped out by robotic babies.
Fortunes, An Experimental Comedy though not necessarily disturbing or scary is still very impressive
ToTheArk never fails to be unsettling (the fact that its directly related to a fantastic ongoing series just adds to it) Though in my opinion Indicator Extraction and Warning are the top three “spookiest entries”
I’m not going to get to far into Marble Hornets because damn I could go on all day about that series, but if you’re looking for a long, complex, incredibly well done horror series Marble Hornets is the series to go for. The scariest non-spoilery(ish) entries i can show are Entry #62, Entry ######, and Entry #19 (The series is full of suspense and fear but i cant really show anything else without spoiling anything, just wait until you see #65)
There are many other fantastic slender series that i would love to go into detail about but i’ll leave that for another day. Considering this was mainly supposed to focus on short videos.
These arnt really the kind of one shot jump scare kinda videos if thats what you were looking for, but they still manage to freak me right out.
For those of you who don’t know, creepypastas are something like urban legends or eery stories on the internet. They center around believably scary or unsettling happenings, expressed through first-person (or close to it) accounts. My favorite one (or the one that fucked me up the most) was The Rake. I’m not gonna ruin the story for you, but it still bothers me when I go to sleep sometimes.
