I really debated whether to post about this or not, since it's not entirely Scooby related, but I figured given we're all Scooby fans here that some people might find it interesting.
Long story short, I inherited a cabin from my recently deceased grandparents. I had never been up there much while they were alive, but they would occasionally tell me stories of very peculiar things happening there. One such story involved my grandpa closing a window, as he did every night, with my grandma watching him. The next morning, both of them could feel a chill in the air because this same window was left wide open. My grandpa asked my grandma why she had opened the window after he closed it, to which she responded that she didn't and she said that she watched him close it. Neither of them went downstairs the entire night, and no one else was in the house, which of course begs the question of how the window could have possibly been opened when neither of them did it. There were a few other stories like that over the years, which I unfortunately don't remember in as vivid of detail as the aforementioned one.
For those that don't know, I'm currently writing a fanfiction story called "Coast to Coast with Daphne Blake," which is set after Zombie Island and highlights Daphne's adventures on her haunted attraction show of the same name. For a long time now, I've thought it would be really cool to actually write a chapter about a haunted cabin in my very own haunted cabin which I inherited. This past weekend, I finally went up and stayed in my haunted cabin for four nights. (As an aside, this was also my reasoning for visiting Banning Junction for the 209th fun fact).
While I wish I could say something paranormal happened while staying there, unfortunately it did not. I did, however, see quite possibly the biggest spider I've ever seen in my life lol (its body was literally as big as my thumb!) as well as hearing some wolves outside make an otherworldly howling noise. There was also a mouse that managed to get into the cabin, though luckily I slept upstairs and thus he didn't bother me.
I must say, however, it definitely fulfilled one of my dreams as a Scooby fan! Staying in the haunted cabin for four nights definitely had that Scooby episode-ish vibe and I'll admit I was incredibly jumpy at night, expecting something paranormal to happen at any moment.
Anyways, sorry I couldn't share anything more exciting with you guys...though I do have something exciting to share (and/or shamelessly promote) with you guys in a literary sense. I managed to write not one, but two chapters of my fanfic up there! In the first chapter, which is set in a haunted cabin, I embedded a lot of my own experiences in the cabin into the fanfic, which was quite fun to do admittedly. The second chapter was just an "extra" since I finished the first one quicker than I thought I would, though I will say that anyone who's a Shaphne fan will love this chapter!
