Edgar Allan Poe: this story's about a guy with a tortured soul
EAP's friend: again, huh
Poe: he thinks he sees a harbinger of evil, a demon sent to curse him for his wickedness!
EAP's friend: ...is it real
Poe: turns out it's a shadow or a stray dog or like, a spooky looking hat
EAP's friend: does it drive him ma--
Poe: it drives him mad
EAP: what about one where there IS a real demon
Edgar, not listening: crows are cool
@Red EAP's friend: what if this one is just a fun misunderstanding
Poe: what if everyone dies of the plague
@Louisa wait wasn't there one where it was like a bug on the window?
@selfsame YES!!! I read it twice in a row because I was sure I missed something, it's so ridiculous
@Louisa i hope to gosh that the "spooky looking hat" example is real
@lukesci I wish! Although there's one with a bug on a window that the protagonist thinks is a huge beast on a distant mountainside
