Weekend Challenge: Spooky Short Stories

Alright my dears, I am in charge of the Weekend Challenge for this first gorgeous weekend in October and I decided we needed an early Halloween, so I will be handing out quotes from spooky short stories--WOO HOO!!

The quotes will be from the spookiest stories around:  the short stories of Edgar Allan Poe and H.P. Lovecraft.

Choose a number between 1 and 13 and I will give you the title of the short story and a random line from the story--please keep in mind, that the quote could be scary, horrifying or supernatural or a combination of all three.  ETA:  I have several random quotes from each short story, so five people can choose #12 and I will have a different prompt for each person.

I hope this terrifying craziness inspires you, so please be as creative as you can--drabbles/fics can be as long as you want but at least 200 words and you can do any sort of art work the spirit moves you    Just post your work by Thursday night at 11:59pm EST, and you'll be golden.  Lastly, HAVE FUN!!!

I am not creative in any way with artwork, so if you want an icon, I will have to ask for help, but I can give you a drabble or add to my WIP.
