Bogleech.com's 2013 Horror Write-off:
" The Ceremony "
Submitted by Prophet Storm
It's horrible. First they catch you in the woods. They kill you at a distance, or they trap you and then kill you up close. I've heard stories. They're horrific. Then they skin you, they prepare you, they shove all sorts of disgusting sludge into you--I don't know what it is, all I know is what I've seen--until you're, like, twice your original size. They seal you in this little chamber until you're thoroughly burned, but they want to keep you wet, so they sometimes take the juices that come out of you and spray them on you again. It's barbaric!
They put you on a sacrificial altar. You're surrounded by other sacrifices, animal and vegetable both, flayed alive and burned like you. They chant ceremoniously with hands linked and eyes closed. Then, the father departs...and comes back with a looooong knife...
And they dig in.
This is known among the humans as 'Thanksgiving.'
