Welcome to the Eerie, Indiana community on Dreamwidth! Thank you for stopping by, and congratulations on your excellent taste in kids’ TV from the early nineties.

This post will eventually contain links to all the fanworks, challenges, prompts, memes, series rewatches, character discussions, episode discussions, interesting interviews or news articles, and everything else you might need to know about the Eerie fandom in general or [profile] eerie_indiana in particular.

It is currently unfinished and likely to remain a work in progress as this fandom is amazing and creates new fanworks faster than I can tag or index them.

In the meantime, I suggest you check out our "fanworks" and "comm event" tags to see what is on offer. Consider starting with a trip to Better Weird Than Dead: An Eerie, Indiana Fic Fest, a quick look at the information below, and maybe working up some tasty fandom treats of your own?

This is a very short scene that I cut from my Janet/Marshall fanfic because it disrupted the flow of the story. Seems a shame to not share one of my favourite things I've ever written though. Just a little conversation between Dash and Janet.

What have you been working on this week, Eerie fans? Now's the time to spread the word about any fannish treats you've got cooking: a line of dialogue from an upcoming fic, linework for your latest art piece, the yarn colours for a new toy. Let us know in the comments!

Marshall looked up as the heavy safety-glass door swung open. One hand hovering protectively over his plate, he watched the miniscule disturbances in the air as something passed by their table. A sudden chill raised goosebumps on the exposed skin of his arms. In the seat across from him, Syndi shivered and reached for the earthenware teapot at her elbow.

“Relax, Syn,” he told her. “It’s just a ghost picking up his carry-out order.”

His sister rolled her eyes.

“Sure, Marshall,” she said. “And when I turn around to look, you bogart the rest of the egg rolls. Try again.”

Marshall shrugged.

“Don’t believe me then,” he said. “I don’t care. I mean, there’s a giant floating bag of shrimp crackers passing behind you, but I guess that’s fine.”

Syndi glared at him. Marshall went back to eating his chow mein, striving to project an air of unconcern over the steaming forkfuls of noodles.

“Mars, don’t taunt your sister,” said Edgar, his tone mild. “Obviously the hovering rice bowls are part of some new marketing ploy.”

“What?” said Syndi, twisting in her chair to see. Her father promptly slid the plate of egg rolls over to his side of the table, winking at Marshall as he did so.

“Hey!” Syndi protested, catching the movement from the corner of her eye. She spun back to face them, stabbed wildly with her chopsticks and succeeded in recapturing the two fattest rolls.

“Just order another portion, you three,” said Marilyn, even as she manoeuvred the plate towards her own place setting with practised stealth.

As the laughter rose around him, Marshall watched the heavy brown paper sack of carry-out glide through the air and out through the front door. He sighed.

Then he looked down at his plate. His egg roll was gone.

"Eerie Eyeball Teacakes!" screamed the foil packaging, day-glow green lettering against a black background decorated with cartoon skeletons.

"It's probably just Halloween marketing, right?" said Simon.

Marshall nodded, the gesture more than a little hesitant. Holding a set of eyebrow tweezers in each hand, he cautiously peeled back the crinkly, shimmering wrapping. The teacake sat there, innocuous within it's thin chocolate-flavoured coating.

Marshall took a deep breath.

"Cover me, Simon," he said. "I'm going in."

Moving quickly, trying his best not to think about what he was about to do, he snatched the marshmallow treat from the small china serving platter, cramming it into his mouth in one rapid motion.

Simon gasped.

Marshall chewed.

"Oh my God," he said, his mouth still full. White fondant oozed from the corners of his mouth and he gasped and gagged. Fragments of shortbread flew into the air and Simon jumped back, his arms raised in a futile attempt to shield himself.

"What is it?" he said. "Marshall, what's wrong? Do we need to instigate Operation: Mercy Kill?"

Marshall picked up a glass of water and took a long drink.

"It's exactly the same as the regular teacakes," he said. And then, "Wait, Operation what?"

"Circular Road," said the street sign, looping back on itself in an endless Mobius strip. The two-lane blacktop was a ribbon that twisted away out of sight, vanishing over the rise of a hill that all the maps agreed didn't exist in Eerie.

"I have a bad feeling about this," said Simon.

"Relax," said Marshall. "I spoke to Janet and she said she'd monitor the emergency milk carton broadcast system in case we need help. It'll be fine."

Simon pointed up the winding street. Two bloodied figures limped towards them. One wore a Giants sweatshirt.

"Damn it," said Marshall. "Again?"

Supernatural's Scooby Doo crossover episode will be a lot "more adult" than your average episode of the kids' cartoon. Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) are set to get animated for an episode of the show's thirteenth season, in which they will be joined by everyone's favorite crime solving dog, but don't expect the episode to stray too far from the Supernatural canon.

"We have ideas floating around sometimes for years before we use them, and that's the benefit of being on a long-running show," co-showrunner Andrew Dabb said to Entertainment Weekly of the fully animated episode. Dabb said that things started to fall into place when he got a call from his friend Jeremy Adams at Warner Bros. Animation. 

"He was like, 'why haven't they done a crossover with Scooby Doo?'" Dabb said. "It's going to be an episode of Supernatural with Scooby Doo in it. It's not going to be an episode of Scooby Doo with the guys in it. It's more adult than your average episode of Scooby Doo." Added co-showrunner Robert Singer, "Scooby is the marquee this year. The script really works. It's just going to be great." 

This isn't the first time that Supernatural has pursued a weird and meta episode. Many fans will remember the season six episode in which Sam and Dean were brought into the world where they're actors on a TV show called Supernatural; the show has also done musical episodes, episodes parodying different genres, and episodes dealing with incredibly dark themes in a very funny way. While it's not unusual for the series to pull off strange antics, an animated episode has, until now, been out of reach for the long-running show. 

Dabb says that the show's stars recorded their parts in March of this year, with the episode likely to air in March of next year.

I watch scary films year-round, but October is like my Olympics. And since today is Friday October 13, there's literally no better time to stay up stupidly late and marathon some horror movies. Here’s a list of things that can help optimize your stay-at-home fright fest. Viewer beware, you're in for a scare!Read more... )

You could be sort of arbitrary about it, but I personally recommend a more thoughtful approach to deciding on a lineup for your horror marathon. Be willing to spend a few bucks on iTunes and Amazon rentals; Netflix often has some solidly creepy choices, but don’t let the algorithm curate your life. Here are a couple ideas to help get you in the right headspace.

-You could stick to one sequel-stuffed franchise, like Nightmare on Elm Street or the Final Destination movies. (The first F.D. holds up. John Waters loves it, too!)

-Maybe you pick a slasher film from each decade, like Peeping Tom (’60s), Black Christmas (’70s), April Fool’s Day (’80s), Candyman (’90s), All The Boys Love Mandy Lane (’00s), and It Follows (’10s).

-Or maybe you watch some super-atmospheric domestic horrors from the 1970s, like Audrey Rose, Alice Sweet Alice, and Don’t Look Now.

-You could watch a bunch of movies about kids who kill, like The Bad Seed, Orphan, The Good Son, and Pet Cemetery.

-You could pair vintage horrors with their trashy, too-slick 2000s remakes, like Sorority Row, 13 Ghosts, or The Last House on the Left.

-Or maybe opt for actually watchable remakes, which are few and far between, like The Fly, Dawn of the Dead, or (controversially, in my opinion) The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

-If you’re not actually looking for anything too gory or scary but still want to get in the spirit, try the ridiculously good pilot episode of short-lived ’90s show Eerie, Indiana; Joe Dante’s The Hole; or Disney’s early-’80s pastoral mystery Watcher in the Woods.

There’s no real way to do this wrong. Just pick a bunch of freaky movies, and watch them with your friends.
