This is a database for non-fiction encounters with the unknown from a personal source.
We welcome all encounters, from the mundane to nightmare-inducing. We aim to be a open, comfortable place for you to share your experiences with no judgement.
We're here for storytelling but maybe we can help uncover the truth behind your encounter. We welcome everyone here regardless of your background or skepticism. Good discussions require all perspectives and it helps with cognitive dissonance.
All we ask is for you to keep an open mind and respect our various backgrounds. Turn off the lights, grab a blanket, and enjoy.
X-posts from /r/paranormal and others are invited. We are not a rival; we're an archive. Think /r/nosleep without the fiction.
All posts MUST be tagged with link flair AND brackets.
Your post must be of a personal experience or by someone you trust that you believe to be true. Send redditors this way if you see anything relevant.
NO CREEPYPASTA, FICTION, CREATIVE WRITING, DREAM POSTS, or SCARY PICTURES.
Please only downvote anything you believe breaks our main rule: NO FICTION!
If you can draw a rough sketch of the entity, diagram of location, or provide any visual references or proof, DO IT or request an artist to help.
We encourage all perspectives, but we do not tolerate assholes. Report comments that ruin the "safe space" vibe.
