TV Tropes Needs Your Help

The consolidated Wheezy thread.:
(That Guy You Met Once)I think most of you know me. For those of you who don't, I write - usually comics, but sometimes short stories or nonfiction essays/advice/rants - and draw, although most of my drawings that aren't directly tied to my writing goes in the Visual Arts forum. Anyway, I work on so many things - and flip so many projects in and out of hiatus - that continuing to maintain threads for each one would be stupid. So here's every writing-based project I work on, wrapped into one thread.
So, here's what I've finished so far...
And what am I working on now?
Finally, here's some more stuff that might happen soon. I think. Maybe.

(That Guy You Met Once)I have a problem. Or, more accurately, Ganzfeld has a problem.
Or, more accurately, Ganzfeld is a problem.
Or, more accurately, Ganzfeld is one huge collection of problems. The first one is that developing it into a comic will cost money. $40 a page, to be precise. I think I'm decently OK at drawing, but I'm not anywhere near the level it'll take to draw a professional-level comic, so I'm trying to save up to hire this guy. Yes, I know 40/page is amazing for that art quality, but I'm still having a problem with it. If I wanted to get this done without major Schedule Slippage, I'd have to take a second job. I'm actually kind of considering this, but it wouldn't leave me any time to write. I could write it as a novel, but I honestly don't think a noir Urban Fantasy about psychics would find an audience in any medium except comics. Another issue is the first chapter: Warning: Highlighting any of the following will spoil a large part of the series to shit: Unlike the pilot, which revolved entirely around two characters, the full ... will feature an Ensemble Cast. The first chapter centers around Mrs. Black, possibly one of the most powerful living telekinetics on Earth, although we don't get any clue to that until the end, and it's not fully revealed until another chapter. At the beginning of the story, she's almost 80, and has spent the last fifteen years in retirement. The BPA's been tracking her for almost as long, and they've recently spotted her at a casino she buses to once every few months. Our story takes place on the day they decide to bring her in. They need to find a way to bring her in - in public, because the threat of breaking The Masquerade is the only thing that will reliably keep a psychic from using their powers - but without making it obvious that she's being illegally arrested by a government agency. So, from here, I've thought of two directions the story could take: Direction 1 They simply walk up to her, tap her on the shoulder, and say that they're from the government, she's going to follow them, and they dare her to do anything about it in front of hundreds of people and tens of security camera. This would be a very sensible plan, but it's also boring. This series is already more dialog-heavy than most of my other work, and it needs yet another scene of two people standing around talking like it needs a hole in its metaphorical head. Direction 2

(That Guy You Met Once)It's been a while since I updated this, hasn't it? Anyway... Untitled creepypasta about two guys who create a webshow. It's about halfway down the page. And a story/poem/thing. Satan
Contacting it is much simpler than you would imagine.
Thatís why so few people have done it. Sacrificing lives doesnít work. Blood is just another earthly liquid. It has no use for corpses.
It does not eat. Also ineffective are wearing black, lighting candles, drawing sigils, reading incantations, or playing any form of music.
It has no concern for the decorations you think itíll like. To reach it, just focus on it.
Do not think of goats, snakes, red men with horns, or any such folktales.
Man puts a familiar face on what he canít understand. Learn fear.
Immerse your mind in it. Fear of death. Fear of the unknown. Fear of God. Fear of anything. Hate.
It doesnít matter at what you direct it. A man, a woman, a race, a gender, or yourself.
Just hate. Hate until it drives out all rational thought. Hate until itís all you know. Study atrocities.
Both the great ones of history and the tiny ones committed daily.
Find beauty in them, and even more the motives behind them.
Tell yourself itís right to do those things. Then, in its own time, itíll come to you.
Not in a cloud of smoke, not from a burning pit in the ground.
Not as a goat, or a snake, or a red man with horns. But as a tiny voice in your head, calling you.
It does not speak, it just manipulates thoughts.
Most people donít recognize it.
But if you've done all you need to do, you'll know this is what you're looking for. Don't ask its true name.
You will hear the screams of every creature that has ever lived, and feel the pain of anyone or anything ever murdered, tortured, or eaten alive.
Noise and suffering beyond the human mind. No one survives that.
Those who donít die of shock or heart failure, throw themselves off buildings and onto highways. Some die by their own bare hands.
Theyíre the lucky ones. If youíve made it to this point, thereís no need to ask yourself why youíre doing this.
If youíve made it to this point, you have only one purpose. You want to see whatís behind all the made-up creatures and tawdry stories of death we use for our cheap imitation of fear. You want to see whatís behind fear itself, behind sadness, behind hate, behind pain.
The thing from which all of those are born.
So simple, words canít describe it. We call it darkness, but itís nothing like a color.
We give it hundreds of names because none can label it. There is only one deal you can make with the devil. Only one thing it can show you. Itself. A sight the mind can't grasp. Not while tied to human eyes, human ears, a human brain.
In order for you to see it, it must first tear you out.
And make you a part of it. It will be all you see, hear, feel, and think.
You will get your wish.

(That Guy You Met Once)I recently dug up a "letter" I first posted in Writers' Block Daily over a year ago, then reposted it on Facebook. Here you go. I'm currently working on something else in the same vein. As a side note, I've shelved Ganzfeld in favor of finishing Yume-Hime, which was started way earlier and has been on hiatus much longer.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
