*sigh*  
It has been one of those days.

It started off with a dream I had. I had acquired a new cat, and for some reason I was taking the cat somewhere by car and my mother was driving. We were on a dual carriageway, going at about 60mph, and the driver's side window was open. Somehow, the cat - that wasn't in a carrier or on a leash or anything - managed to climb out of the window, walked across the car roof and then leapt off into the road - and oncoming traffic.

The impossibility of the dream wasn't the problem. The events of the dream upset me so much that I woke up in a state of high anxiety, and the day went downhill from there.

(I actually woke up to Lily nuzzling my knee, because she has the ability to tell when I'm sleepwalking/sleeptalking/having something that could become a night terror and wakes me up from them without traumatising me further. Which is a nice way to wake up, at least.)

So after I woke up I was anxious and distressed, which ended up combining into depression that I couldn't shake no matter what I tried. So eventually, feeling tearful and desperate and generally miserable enough that I was contemplating bad things, I did what I've been told to do in the past when I'm like this and called the mental health centre and asked to speak to the Duty Professional.

When I got to speak to him, it was a guy who had run an Anxiety and Depression group I took part in at the beginning of the year, which at least meant he knew me... but unfortunately he was also not exactly full of practical and helpful advice and energy. I explained how I was feeling and what I had tried to do, how it was making me feel worse, and his main piece of advice was to "do things that I liked doing". Which is something I had thought of myself, to be honest. He also didn't even know if I was on a waiting list for CBT or any other sort of psychological therapy, because of course with my care co-ordinator still being off sick (and now it's looking like she's not coming back at all) no-one knows what's going on with me at all. Which is another reason I'm feeling depressed and abandoned by just about everyone. So he said he'd look into that for me, and that was about it.

So I went into town and bought yarn and donuts. Which did at least help my mood a little.

But it rained on and off the whole time and I got caught in a couple of downpours, and then when it came time to get the bus home... the bus couldn't go the full route because there'd been a major accident on the road leading to my stop, so the bus couldn't get there. So I ended up with an extra 15 minute walk (in the rain) to get home. But I did see a rainbow and the walk was mostly downhill rather than the uphill struggle it would have been if I'd gotten a different bus.

Since then I've been watching Twitch.tv, making a start on a cardigan with the new yarn (here) - the yarn is a lovely colour and was quite cheap when I saw it in the shop, but now that I'm using it I'm discovering that it's a bit fiddly to work front and back post crochet stitches with. Hopefully this is something that will clear up as I get used to it - and eating donuts. If I had my way I'd not leave the house tomorrow, but I've got to go to the PDSA to pick up Lily's prescription, so I'll just have to try to be efficient with it.

Cold  
I had to put the heating on today. In early September. That's just not right. Personally I could have gone a few more weeks without it, but Lily made her displeasure known to me this morning by climbing onto me and refusing to move, leeching my body heat. Such a prima donna; it's only one degree below 10 C. But I don't want her to be unhappy or uncomfortable, especially considering her health, so the heating goes on, at least at night, for now.

Bloody climate change.

I've been trying to catch up on my sleep and energy levels these past few days, which means I still haven't gone to see The Dark Tower as I had vaguely planned for this week. Instead, I've been playing quite a fair bit of XCOM 2 (even though I've not finished the first one yet). Still just as bad at base management and multi-tasking, but the ability to customise my soldiers and kit them out in full Mad Max gear more than makes up for it. Which is why my troops now include Imperator Furiosa, Max Rocketansky, Natasha Romanov and Jason Voorhees (he came wearing a hockey mask and became a Ranger, and one-shots people with a throwing axe. What other name could I have given him?). As for the game, I'm getting through it by degrees and a surprisingly low amount of save-scumming (saved for moments such as when a Viper gets a lucky crit and one-shots someone, for example).

Also today, while I was out getting the cat food so Lily and Callie don't eat me in my sleep, I ended up wandering into PC World and buying a microphone in the next step towards making those videos I keep theorycrafting. It seems to be a pretty good mic - USB, has a stand, volume and mute controls, supposedly noise-cancelling from certain angles, and a good deal cheaper than the other "pro" microphones in the store, which were all around £120, while this one was only £35. So now I have one less reason to keep putting this thing off, because even £35 is not to be sneezed at. I'll try to test it out this weekend.

Dear Trick or Treater!  
Firstly, oh my god, how awesome is this exchange, I can't believe how LATE I am discovering it! I'm so glad that you and I and your giver and my recipient and all of us are going to roll around together in such halloweeen-y goodness.

About Me
So hi, I'm V, thank you for writing or arting for me and I'm going to be so insanely happy with anything you create for me and I'm like the easiest recipient ever because barely anything is off the table. Normally I wouldn't put an about me section, in fact, this is the first letter I've written in years but Halloween is my Christmas, ok? I bloody love it, pun intended. I'm that one weirdo that still wants to trick or treat at 25 and one half of the only duo that dresses up at work for Halloween, and yes, people do think we're mad but we love it. From a young age, I always loved the supernatural and vampires especially so yes, this exchange is perfect and I can't wait to flail.

Trick or Treat?
Either! Both! Any and all the things! I'm also 10000% willing to participate in "extra" tricks and treats. I promise I'll be writing some, that's for sure. There are a lot more prompts that lean towards tricks but that's just how my mind works and don't feel swayed by it.

Fic or Art
Artists, I love what you do so much, you have no idea how jealous I am of your talent and I'm completely up for receiving art but I will apologise in advance if all my prompts sound like they are aimed at fic. It's not that I don't want art, I would really really love some but I'm a writer, my brain thinks in that way.

Disclaimer
My letter is massive. Like really, really long with lots of lists and I don't blame you if you don't want to trawl through it so I'll say; TL:DR my DNWS are right at the top here and long story short I like Halloween themed things, darkfics and porn. Everything else below here is just bonus really. But I will love you forever if you can make it through this letter <3 None of these lists are in any real order, just as they came to me or as I saw them on other lists so please don't feel you have to write the first thing on the list because honestly, it's random as anything. IN FACT! I'm going to alphabetise them to completely muddle them up xD

Fandom Specific Prompts

The Originals and The Vampire Diaries (including crossovers between the two)
This is my current main fandom at the moment so, absolutely anything. Things I like about TVD/TO is the amount of history that they just didn't even hint at ;) by that I mean, there are a lot of flashback gaps that can be filled and most of the time, you can fill it with whatever you like because there's very little in canon that can solidly say it didn't happen the way you want it to. This especially applies to vampire characters, even more so The Original Family but with magic in the mix, who's to say Bonnie doesn't travel back in time and ends up spending a day as the first Bennett witch. Origin stories for some of the less fleshed out vampires (Lexi and Rose, in particular) would be amazing. Contemporary settings are also full of possibilities, between all the magic flying around, biting them in the backside centuries later. Teen drama of the week amiss all the supernatural goings on. Future fic? I, ah, haven't watched the end of TVD but don't let that stop you if that's your setting. Or future fic that explores other outcomes.

H2O: Just Add Water
I won't lie, I watched this because of my obsession with Claire Holt, but I ended up really loving it, even after she left. My favourite thing about it is their connection to the moon, especially moon!drunk shenanigans. Again, with all the magic bouncing around Mako Island, it would be perfect to throw them for a supernatural loop. This would also be a nice one to throw in a shark drama! I get that this is a very ~teen~ show and not everyone is comfortable writing smut for younger-aimed fandoms but just in case you are, I wanted to explain why I would only like femslash. The thing is, all the het relationships were sort of weird to me. Most of the time the boys looked much older than the girls and there was a lot of lying and a lot of dysfunction but not in the fun way and to be perfectly blunt, it seemed like they randomly ended up with a guy that happened to be there simply to fill up a "she's a teenager, she must have a boyfriend!" quota. On the other hand, the girls were always open to each other and had a much stronger bond and it seemed more... natural to me that two girls of the same age going through some weird shit would find something deeper there. It felt like it should have been a more female-focused show but by the end, when everyone had a random guy... I don't know, it sort of lost that "girl power" vibe, especially when at times it fell back on the guy saving the day. So yes, would prefer femslash for that reason. Plus the world needs more femslash. For darkfic, I'd especially love to see either charlotte being the camp villianess and possibly kidnapping and doing something bad, of your choice, to the girls, or maybe Miriam decides she's done having her limelight stolen. If any form of time travel is your thing then I'd love to see them sent back to meet the original mermaid trio and am happy for any of them to be shipped with Gracie, Louise and Julia. Or I'd take a straight up replacement AU where they are the original mermaids and have to coach the new mermaids through the change. I'm mid-season 3 so I don't know the canonical ending yet but I'd love to see Emma come back from her round the world trip and discover she's been "replaced", either leading to hurt feelings and the girls convincing her they didn't replace her or maybe a rivalry with Bella that turns into an enemies to friends to lovers trope.

Crossover between TVD/TO and H2O
I don't normally do crossovers unless its a shared universe, but this is my number one exception and I would be thrilled with an AU where either Rebekah or Hayley wake up as either Emma or Cleo (or both wake up as both) and they have to navigate both losing their vampire/hybrid powers and gaining mermaid powers and they have to come to terms with the fact they are teenagers again and all the hormones and mood swings and teen drama. All F/F ships welcome, including crossover ships (so Rebekah/Rikki or Hayley/Rikki, Rebekah/Cleo or Hayley/Emma), or gen is fine too.

American Horror Story: Hotel
I love all the American Horror Story seasons (ok, I wasn't that keen on Roanoake and I haven't even bothered with the election one this year but before that), and I'm pretty sure had I the room to nominate/request them all, I would have. But alas, I had to pick one and I picked Hotel because like Murder House, it has a lot of potential for different eras and gaps to be filled but it also has some possibilities for future fics too. Maybe a character from another season comes to stay at the hotel and oops, they bite the dust and end up James' plaything. Or The Countess spots them and makes them into a vampire. Keeping it strictly in season is cool too. They did a pretty good job with origin stories but it'd always be nice to see the gaps fleshed out or see them from another POV. Hazel's POV on anything and everything would be lovely, she was such an under used character.

Crossovers with AHS: Hotel
Again, I know I said no crossovers but damn it, the potential here. Full blanket permission to take any requested character from any requested fandom and have them take a trip to the Hotel and either, John Lowe style try to figure out what is going on here or tragically, they die in the hotel and have to navigate being a ghost. Another idea could be a fusion AU, so for example the cast of another requested fandom replacing the characters in AHS: Hotel and doing their take on it. Or if Hotel isn't your vibe but another season is, you can fusion any requested fandom with Murder House/Asylum/Coven/Freak Show (and even Roanoke if you can pull it off better than canon did).

The Borgias
Oh the moral ambiguity (or in cases, straight up lack of morals point blank) against the backdrop of Catholicism. I love how each character has a different set of flaws and how sometimes different family members make those bad points worse and sometimes they make them better. In case it wasn't said enough, a-ok with incest ships here, the darker and the more dysfunctional the better. I love Cesare's obsession with Lucrezia's innocence and her purity even though she's seen and done terrible things herself. I love the canon setting the most but I'd be open to AUs of them as the same sort of powerful family at different points in history. I'd also be interested in a turn left style "what if Rodrigo hadn't been elected Pope" AU. I'd love to see something about the time where Lucrezia stood in for Rodrigo in ~the chair~ and how she felt about it, how Cesare felt about her outranking him. Maybe a post-canon glimpse at their life after Rodrigo's death for those who outlive him. For halloween themes, obviously celebrating it and masked balls and such but also maybe, what if Lucrezia actually was a witch and the rumors of her poisoning people was actually magic? What if, rather than syphilis, Juan was bitten by a werewolf or another creature? Is Micheletto so skilled a assassin because he's actually a monster hunter? Succubus/Incubus AU? Vampire AU?

Preacher
Well, if you can top canon right now! The two plotlines I'm really loving right now is the order of the grail with Herr Starr and Lara being my favourites there, and then the whole Hitler in hell. Yes, I know that's probably controversial, trying to humanize Hitler but this show put God in a puppy play scenario, let's not pretend it's the most controversial thing. If you want to go there with Hitler and write something that humanizes him, I would love to see his arrival and ruling of hell and how that changed him. Or if you are against a redemption theme and want him to suffer then go wild, gangbang in hell, anything you like, the dude is Hitler after all. Same with Herr Starr, you could go deeper into his motives and his origin story or roll with him taking on something too big and he gets his just desserts. Lara, I would love some undercover romance with Tulip. She doesn't have to fall for her or change who she is, it can be straight up manipulation. I'm good with all the usual Jesse/Cassidy/Tulip love triangle, tension, angst, anything you want to do with any ships there. Fiore is there because I loved Fiore/DeBlanc in Season 1 and would love either something that explains or fixes DeBlanc's death or something nice and happy with them or something darker that plays up to the theory that maybe one of them isn't an angel and they fathered Genesis or just something a bit gritty from their past or as always, their origin story. For Halloween fics, maybe something bad happens and Cassidy has to turn another character, possibly against their will. Cassidy's early days as a vampire or even a day in the life as Cassidy the vampire. Making time in their road trip to celebrate Halloween. If you want to go a different route with the dark, Jesse's abuse of Genesis could come in handy.

Utopia
I adored 2x01. Lets get that on the table straight away. Anything with 2x01 or the fall out between that and modern day or even future fic showing the fall out of their choices, especially Milners. Pre-canon fic of their lives before they met. Missing scenes between them. I love that quote about how sex would somehow cheapen the intellectual bond between them and I would greatly love to see that go to hell in a handbasket because ~base human impulses~ that they can't control. Maybe some science gone wrong in this one, they create an aphrodisiac or instead of a ~whatever they were trying to create at the time~. Halloween themed AU maybe it doesn't steralise people, maybe it causes a Zombie apocalypse and they're the only few left alive. For Jessica and RB, I would like to see something of a happy ending or a time when they were happy. An AU where they didn't get separated, where Jessica helps him with his psychological issues. Or maybe they are a duo of psychopathic/sociopathic killers. Or an AU where when Phillip "dies", Milner makes sure she gets the kids somehow, for whatever reason. For kinky fics, I'd love to see what Milner or Phillip do to de-stress, if you know what I mean. An AU where she doubles up as a dominatrix and he's her client. Maybe it was a swingers party where they met. The Assistant can be slotted in there somehow, I would love to see Milner requesting his "services" and him being more than happy to serve. Or perhaps the whole thing unfolds from his perspective. Is he in love with her? Why does he give his life up for her?

iZombie
Well, this one comes free with a halloween theme. Lets open with swapping the ~supernatural element~ around. It's not zombies, it's vampires/werewolves/incubi/mermaids/superpowers. Pick a mythical creature out of a fable book and run wild. AU where Liv wasn't at the boat party but Peyton was. Or they went together. AU where they swap moral roles. Maybe Peyton is the criminal element, turning zombies and selling brains while Blaine is the DEA's assistant, trying to bring it all down. Maybe Peyton is the one Liv broke the engagement of with. To be honest, anything Peyton/Liv is a winner for me. AU where Liv is the one that takes the cure and loses her memory (or pretends to, for whatever reason). Zombie!Sex. Show me all the creative ways they come up with for getting it on without turning their lover into a zombie. Actually that reminds me of something.... Pushing Daises AU anyone? Especially if Peyton is the Pie Maker and she brings her childhood crush, Liv back from the dead but those roles don't have to be set in stone. Darkfic could involve either of them getting captured and played with, either by Blaine or Rita or Stacey Boss or another bad guy of the week. I can't remember John Doring's character's name of the top of my head (the new guy in charge of the military zombie thing) but he could give off a bad guy vibe. And the classic, moment of life or death for Peyton and Liv has to turn her, possibly against her will.

Merlin
Lord I could be here all day. Merlin was my main fandom for a long time and I still hold a lot of love for it and I could list every magic gone wrong/love spell/evil thing of the week. But I would be here all week. So if in doubt, write it. There's very little that won't work with Merlin. Some die hard favourites though include Beltane (sexy) rituals, evil Morgana doing dirtybadwrong things to people, innocent good Morgana having dirtybadwrong things done to her or hell, evil Morgana bites off more than she can chew and has dirtybadwrong things done to her. I would really love some rare pairs and especially rare pair femslash to happen but I'm really easy with ships on this one, just not Merlin/Gwen because that felt so awkward and cringy when they tried it in S1. Would prefer canon era over modern but I won't rule modern out.

Swiss Army Man
Ok so bear with me, I know this was slated as a film about a farting corpse but for me, it was a hell of an emotional rollercoaster. Maybe because I'm weird and ship weird things, I don't know but I laughed, I loved, I bawled my eyes out. Anything you write for this will bear my undying love. The only prompts I can think of is something like it really does unfold like Hank imagined, a post-canon fic where he keeps hallucinating Manny or is haunted by Manny's ghost. Maybe take it through an Odd Couple AU route and Manny wasn't a corpse but a zombie or a vampire that needed reviving. Going to get real dark and say necrophillia is ok for this one assuming it remains in context with the canon.

Crossovers with Swiss Army Man
Ok, so again, I'm going to lift my crossover rule for this one because I love weird odd couple scenarios and this is as odd as it gets. You can take any one requested character and replace Hank or Manny with them to create a crossover or you can any requested fandom and take a ship, obviously with at least one requested character, and replace Hank and Manny with them and do a straight up retelling. Doesn't have to be slash, can be het or femslash. Again, with the plotline being what it is, necrophillia is ok within the context of the canon material. Third option, you can take any Harry Potter character and replace Hank with them to make a Harry Potter crossover but for it to count under and assigned fic, Manny must remain as Manny and not be Harry. Or at least not explicitly. If you want to do it as a treat then by all means, you can make him Harry.


Really Specific Prompts (aka; kink meme prompts)
As and when I have time, I will try to leave any specific prompts that I've seen and would like written as a tree in the comments section. If you would like to know if I'm ok with a kink meme prompt you have in mind, either as an assignment or a treat, please leave it anonymously or pass it onto the mod to pass onto me. If in doubt though, write it. Porn is porn is porn and even if it's not my cup of tea personally, more porn is always a good thing in my book!

I've listed some over the last few days and I just wanted to disclaimer the varying levels of prompts. It's not a preference thing, it's an admin thing. These are all prompts from my "prompt bank" so to speak. I only started noting down prompts I liked in the last year or so which means some newer to me fandoms I have lots of prompts saved but fewer older to me fandoms. They're oddly grouped because I used to keep them in spreadsheets by event then I changed to by fandom and I haven't got around to swapping everything over.

If you like the look of a prompt but it says character a/character b and you want to write it character c/character d then for the most part I'll say go ahead and write it with a different ship, as long as it's not a DNW ship. If you're unsure, feel free to ask.

For a few prompts I've put some notes in italics. Those are things I've added to the prompt if I would prefer it handled a certain way. I've also edited some prompts from the original prompt to open it up to more ships or narrow it down or just because I like the prompt but would prefer it with a different ship. If you recognize a prompt it's because yep, if I didn't mention, these aren't my personal prompts, they are prompts I've saved because I like them/thought I might write them one day (then never did lol). If you recognize a prompt and it's yours, I'm sorry for... ah, liberating? it for my own purpose but hey, it could get filled and that's always a good thing right <3


Sex and Candy
I mentioned before that I was open to treats and planning to write treats. Well, this is a little cheeky and I hope it's allowed but I'm just going to quickly list all the fandoms that I would love to read but couldn't request because I'd need an unlimited sign up sheet. So that even if nobody ends up requesting them, you know that someone wants them and you can treat someone to them. Or just use me as an excuse to write what your heart desires.

Alternatively, think of it this way. I'm personally hoping to create a lot of dark and/or smutty treats for this fest but I don't want to step on toes or sometimes nobody has requested that ship or they requested a character but ruled out a ship, whatever. So I don't want to drop a load of porn on someone who for example, requested the character but preferred not to have porn written for them. But I still want to write it.

Well, consider this my blanket request. I am the room of requirement, where you can put your stray fics. If you want to write something for these fandoms but worry nobody will want it, gift them to me, I will happily have them. Any nominated character and/or ship in these fandoms. Nothing is too dark. Nothing is too kinky. GIVE IT TO ME <3

PS It doesn't have to be sexy for me to give it a home. And obviously, treating the people who requested these fandoms should come first, if compatible and if requested.

PPS If there's anyone out there that shares any of these fandoms and would like to return the favour and give my weird, kinky and darkfics a home, I'd very much like that and have left a comment box below for people to tell me their fandoms <3

IT  
I saw the new IT at the cinema yesterday, which makes it three times in a week (5 days) that I've been out and interacting with people in public. No wonder I'm exhausted today. Also in this same week I've justified the monthly fee for my Unlimited card at the cinema, and there's still more films out this month that I want to see.

(It's always this way in late summer. Barely anything of interest for most of July and August, and then suddenly the distributors just throw a whole load of films that they didn't want to risk in blockbuster season or Halloween season out there and leave people scrambling to see them. Although IT doesn't really count for that.)

Spoilers, many spoilers... )


I'm also astonished that the filmmakers felt the need to tell people that that scene from the book (and if you've read the book, you'll know exactly what scene that is) wasn't going to be in the movie. I can't imagine anyone actually expecting that to be in the film, much less being upset over it. But apparently it was something that required mentioning. People are strange.

gen & implied slash post partido
menciona a: nicolás tagliafico, maxi mezza, ex jugador emiliano rigoni, martín campaña, martín benitez,
nicolás domingo, dt ariel holan.



Es una mentira decir que está es la primera vez que se ven desde que pasó lo que pasó. Así lo llama Taglia en su cabeza, no sabe como lo llama Campaña, porque no habló con él. Bueno, si habló, pero no lo hablo. Eso. Lo que pasó. Y además esta todo el tema de que no fue la ultima vez aquella vez. Igual, Taglia tiene muy, muy claro de que quizás esta---

-Extraño a Emiliano- dice Mezza, frente a él, con los brazos cruzados y la camiseta sobre ellos- Lo extraño terriblemente y una parte de mí está seguro de que nunca va a dejar de extrañarlo.

-Bueno...- Taglia no está seguro de que quiere decir con esto Mezza.

-Y sé que el equipo lo extraña, que nos va a hacer más falta que no y que los hinchas también. Pero nadie, nadie nadie, lo extraña como yo.

-Eh...

-A lo que voy -dice Mezza- es que yo lo extraño porque no está acá.

Un suspiro. Taglia mira al resto que están acomodandose para ducharse.

-No extrañes a alguien que si está acá, capi.- y con eso Mezza se va, Nery lo llama, le quiere decir algo importante dice.

Taglia no quiere pensar en lo que acaba de escuchar y se concentra en el brillo que emana Benitez, que es hermoso y tan especial y quiere prometerle que va a hacer todo para que pueda seguir brillande así. También, mira al nuevo Nicolás (en una época de su vida le molestaba lo común que era su nombre, pero ahora lo tiene bastante aceptado) y se pregunta cuando empezará a ser parte del equipo.

Se pregunta, por sobre todas las cosas, si está sera su ulti---

-Nicolás- llama Holan. Y lo mira. Nada más que lo mira. Lo mira sabiendo lo que Taglia pensaba.

-Tenés razón- le dice Taglia, porque esto de acelerar innecesariamente no es de él, ni adentro ni afuera de la cancha.

Inviting Avery over.  
Mario had to admit he was a little nervous inviting Avery to his place. It wasn't much, just a basic bachelor pad. There was no finesse to his place, it was typical man decorating. He did at least have more than just a studio apartment, there was a separate bedroom to hide all of his stuff. He unlocked the door and lether in before following her in.

"Make yourself comfortable. What can i get you to drink?"

Teeth Update  
Had my dentist's appointment this morning, even though none of my teeth have even twinged since I made the appointment, of course. Didn't have to sit it the waiting room for too long, thankfully, as the longer I wait in medical waiting rooms the greater the urge to just run out screaming becomes for me. Dentist looked at my broken tooth from all angles, then took an x-ray of it (and I nearly choked on the x-ray plate that had to be inserted into my mouth because, despite being told, my tongue wouldn't relax and things got rather crowded in there. Then I had to wait for the results of the x-ray, all the while thinking that, if we were at the stage of taking x-rays, then something was going to have to be done to my tooth.

Nope. Despite all outward appearances, my broken tooth is actually perfectly healthy. Yes, both I and the dentist were slightly shocked by this. But no work needs to be done; just keep up the Corsodyl and the teethbrushing.

I swear, even if nothing else gets accepted after I die, I think I should donate my teeth to a dentistry school for scientific research.

So after that, I went to lunch... and my tooth started hurting again. But since it's been x-rayed and such, I can now put it down to my teeth suddenly deciding, after 37 years, that they want to be sensitive now. Which is fine by me, I bought Sensodyne toothpaste.

After that, I went to see Annabelle: Creation at the cinema, mainly because my brother's been prodding me to see it for weeks now. I admit, I wasn't expecting great things from it, so to say it was better than I had expected it to be might not be the most glowing of praise, but there it is. 12 years after their daughter dies, a couple take in six orphan girls and a nun after their orphanage closes. They're allowed to go anywhere in the house, except the dead daughter's room. But something in the room has other ideas, and soon the girls are being terrorised by an evil spirit, particularly the one girl with polio who can't run away.

I was all prepared to yell at the film for inventing a new and completely different backstory for the evil doll that had no connection to the first film (I haven't actually seen the first film, but I watched the CinemaSins episode on it), but the film did throw in an epilogue that actually managed to connect the two films without working itself into a plot knot. So there's that, at least. And yes, the film was a jumpscare-palooza, emphasised by obvious camera framing and orchestra stings that sounded like someone was tasing the strings section while kicking the woodwind section down a spiral staircase, but I suppose as jumpscares go they weren't too bad. Oh, and there was a brief shot of Sister Skullface of the Church of the Eternal Waking Nightmare, just to remind us that the next film will be all about her. I'd give it 3 out of 5.
