What's the most messed up/psyducked up/scariest/edgiest thing you've ever written?

Hoo boy?

Let me see.

TW! VIOLENCE.

Most psyducked up: wrote a scene once where a group of gang members cut open a character's arm and forced him to paint with his blood.

Scariest: Human experimentation scenes. Needs no description.

Most messed up: I wrote a disembowelment scene that eventually led to the soldier setting the open wounds on fire. Luckily, this scene was merely a dream.

Edgiest: ... Daddy Deathbed. Enough said. I was 14, don't ask.

Scariest: Probably the ending of an old Pokémon fic in which a captured Zorua (the titular "Captured Illusion") made its captor disappear without a trace. That was not the end though, it was the Fairy Tale Girls around laughing about it that gave me chills upon re-reading it.

Most psyducked up: Thankfully didn't get past the outline stage, but...
Spoiler:
My self-insert/avatar character getting branded with the arms of Arceus/the Hisui mark by their manipulative bastard of a friend (a disciple of Volo who intended on resetting Sinnoh back to its Hisuian roots). She then dies of said injuries, alone, on the streets of 1930s Unova, all before becoming a ghost. This was only backstory, by the way. As I said before, this is thankfully no longer canon to my self-insert's story since it was waaaaay too convoluted.


Edgiest: Prior to the pandemic, my self-insert Pokémon character, who is a human ghost, had been killed by her own mother, and much of my writing hinged on that backstory because, well, I had "friends" who encouraged me to be *~edgy~* and to make my self-insert's backstory as different from mine as possible. Thankfully, over the pandemic I became closer to my mom and broke away from those people, so that bit no longer holds true. In fact, my self-insert and her mother (who is based on my own) actually died in the same event and later reunited as ghosts.

I could probably fill pages with examples, but I'm just going to say I had to write some very visceral and vivid descriptions of severe burns recently and that was not fun research to do.

i am 100% pure and cannot write messed up stuff :>

Honestly, I have never felt the need to, iirc. Maybe I described an injury at some point, and tried to convey slight horror/surrealism at another point.

I've done something similar with catching on fire and getting third degree burns, honestly. It's not fun to write things like that, but I've written... worse. Somehow.

I found writing it fun enough, but I'm a sick bastard like that.

When Neopets was still big and the plushies were at McDonalds, I think it was the ones from 2005. I wrote a small trilogy about neopets since I loved them... and.... well I found them after we moved last year in my neopets box and omg.... it was so bad. Truly a 12 year old had written it. It wasn't gross or anything, just terrible writing lol.

When I was RPing in Warcraft back in 2018/2019. I had to write something as a DM that was extremly uncomfortable, but I had to make it for the character. I warned people around 5+ times not to come if you get uncomfortable. It was dealt with undead and other things and I just did not like it at all. But it had the impact I was looking for. But I will never right something like that again. Thankfully a door opened where I was able to completely retcon what had happened so I never have to think about it.

It's not forum appropriate. 😅
You and me both, haha.

Other than that topic, I can admit I used to have plenty of existential crises back in the day. I now take those horrible/odd experiences and have implemented them in original stories of mine. It’s helped me grapple with such… deep and weird aspects of life in weird ways that I hadn’t realized the power that writing would have on me.

ALIENS. I took inspiration from lovecraftian horror and YouTube args for my stories and I can admit that I’ve come up with some odd stories.

Not in any RP, not fanfic, but all the stories I wrote were related to exams, like a question pops up in a test of writing a short story and... well see...

While I enjoy happy endings, turns out I was more, IDK how to say it, natural with writing horror mixed with really psyducked up stuff.

It's... intense, to describe it briefly. ^^;
