1. I saw the Boogeyman Last Night
Borderlings Involved: Claustronoctiling

Back when I was a child, I didn't believe in the Boogeyman, that is until I saw one for myself. It was back in 1982, I was 6 at the time. At 8 pm, after dinner, I heard my mom say," Did you hear that? He's coming for you because you were being a bad girl. Go to sleep, or he'll gobble you up!" at ten minutes until 9 pm. I moaned with great displeasure. It's not because of the monster in the closet. School's tomorrow and I need to sleep early! Turning off my game console, I immediately head upstairs and threw myself on my bed. Sleep didn't come as fast, knowing that my bratty older sister, 10 years of age, just pulled an all-nighter. In about 11 pm, she screamed and ran towards mom's bedroom. I think I overheard her saying something about a huge claw reaching out from her closet door. 'It wasn't real. She was doing that just to have her parents fix her something in the fridge', I thought. That one night, I should've headed to dreamland. It was ten minutes before midnight, and I saw a large head of a creature peeking out from my own closet. Two pairs of glowing red eyes were glaring at me! As it moved its head further out, I get to see its face. Its face was pointy, like a witch, and a large, furry body. Now I believed it was real! It was a terrible sight to behold. I pulled my bedsheets over my head, trembling. Minutes seemed like an eternity as I heard it breathing with raspy, shallow breaths. When I heard no signs of the beast, I felt at peace. After a quiet night, sleep came shortly. From now on, I believed my mom was right about the monsters in our closet and underneath our bed. For my older sister, well, mom said it took awhile for her to come back home after misbehaving.

2. The Imaginary Friend
Borderlings involved: Coulrodracoling

I asked my son, Jeremy, who's 5 years old at the time, 'Did you have fun in the playhouse with the other children today?' and he answered, 'Yes, daddy, I did! I wanted to show them Bonzo, but they were too scared. But they played with him later once I told them he's nice. Now they think he's the coolest dragon in the world! Want to play with him?' Then, he showed me something that made my eyes widen in shock. In his hands were a blob of light-blue, glowing slime. Droplets hit the ground, crystallizing a few seconds after.

I realized that this is no imaginary friend. Immediately I saw a large blue dragon dressed in clown clothes, grinning at me. I was both frightened and confused until the thing tilted its head. "What's the matter? Do you want to play?", it said. I opened my mouth, but nothing came out. The creature chuckled like a child would until it disappeared a few seconds after. Jeremy's smile got even wider. "You saw him?" he asked. I replied, "Yes, yes I do."

3. The ‘O’ in Life
Borderlings Involved: Unknown

Written by S3S

Remember the ‘O’ in life. That’s what I heard in my mind. I don’t know why the O is of high importance to me suddenly. It was early in the morning, like 3:34 am, and I was watching TV. A strange informercial came up. It didn’t advertise any weird product, like those sauna pants, or whatever they’re called, and it lasted for around 10 seconds. It begins with a green screen, white letters showed up, reading ‘Remember…’. It slowly fades away. Shortly after, a huge white ‘O’ came up in a flash. A disembodied male voice then told me to ‘remember the ‘O’ in life’ followed by a soft ‘oooohhhh…’ It’s almost creepy. It's like this person, or thing is actually speaking to me. As if nothing happened, regular programming assumes. Cutting tools, nothing special.

4. You Are What You Eat
Borderlings Involved: Jangelafructoling

Written by S3S

There was once a man who visited a coffee shop. He ordered a cake pop to satisfy his sweet tooth and found a table in the back to enjoy his treat. When a few minutes had passed, his stomach started to rumble. He thought something didn’t agree with him and immediately head to the bathroom. But when he got there, he knows something’s not right. His stomach gained a red hue and he couldn’t buckle his belt. He felt light-headed, losing control as his lower body continues to gurgle and swell with…red strawberry filling. He lumbered towards the back of the shop, his body changing, candy growing everywhere. He laid on his back, changing into a large mess of candy. The gurgling stopped. A shadow of a monster can be seen on the walls, smacking its lips in hunger. I was there when that happened. Thankfully, I didn’t eat any of the sweets that night.

5. Do Not Yank the Strings!
Borderlings Involved: Globoling

Written by S3S

One time, I found this strange balloon animal at the park, tied to a bench near the playground. The balloons were somehow glued to one another to make what it looks like to be a 6-legged elephant. The park seems empty and one seems to be there. I guess a child forgot their balloon? There’s not a soul to claim the balloon animal so why not take it with me? The sight of it gave me a pleasant flashback to my childhood, how I got a balloon flower from a clown at my party. After untying the string, I tried the thing on my wrist so it won’t get lost again. That’s when it did something that scared the hell out of me. Immediately after I tugged the string, it let out a squeak and suddenly dropped to the grassy ground before me! I thought it was a child, but it was something else. The balloon, after gravity had hit it, started to flail and twitch, like it was fighting an unseen attacker. As it struggles, I can clearly see it bubbling and swelling in different places. I stood there in shock, disturbed yet fascinated all at once. The sounds it makes are beginning to hurt my ears. The squeaking, rubbing against rubber, getting louder and louder… I have to cover my ears when the creature gave its last screech before popping. It wasn't that loud, to my surprise. I checked if the remains of the balloon creature are still there….nothing, nothing is there on the grass. Was I imagining things? It seems all too real. Before I recollect what just happened, I start to feel parts of my body bubbling, just like the balloon. I panicked and headed towards the park’s bathroom. My neck, arms, legs, and stomach feel like they're twice their own size and was straining against my skin. I thought I was going to pop until I looked in that dingy, scratched mirror.
I looked...normal? It doesn't justify the feeling of being inflated. This is going to drive me insane! But thank God it lasted for a few minutes. After regaining my senses, I immediately headed back home. For now, I have great respect for any lost balloon animals. You wouldn't know if they're actually alive.

6. The Sky is Dead
Borderlings Involved: Frequbaroling

Written by S3S

As I looked out of my car window, I saw a strange sight. A hole was opening up in the sky like an unseen force is tearing up the sky. I can see the stars and the milky way for a brief moment! I have to stop the car and park it somewhere to take a picture, but a pained scream interrupted me. Someone's in danger, and I have to check to see what's going on! I got out of the car and head towards the sound.
What I saw made me freeze in shock. A woman was pale as a ghost, eyes wide open, truly frightened. In front of her was...a human. Whatever he or she was is mutating, distorting constantly. Throughout it's murmuring, I can make out a few words:
'The sky is dead. The Sky is Dead Tttttthhhheeeeskkkky
is ddeeeeeee...'
I have to take her by the hand. Both of us were obviously scared. Before I started the car, I hear her struggle to speak. 'Ma'am......m-my...my...husband.."
"What about him? Do you have his number?", I replied. She broke into tears. "He saw the UFO and...became...that..."

7. The Blue lights
Borderlings Involved: Aqualing, subspecies: Unknown

Written by S3S

The time where I saw the blue lights was early in the spring, around March last year. It was 5:20 am and the neighborhood glowed with a deep blue hue, the break of dawn. After I woke up, I met with the most beautiful view in my front yard. Maybe it was all a dream because it’s too unreal. Floating sheets of liquid were slowly circling around each other in a heavenly waltz around my front lawn. Dew was forming on the blades of grass. The sprinklers were turned on a minute or so later, making the dance more pleasant to look at. They seem to enjoy the extra water, now parting ways to glide around the sprinklers. The dew began to pulse and glow like stars. I began to see beautiful blue lights in my vision as I slowly doze off...I woke up at my usual time, 8 O' clock, and there weren't any signs of these creatures. Maybe I was dreaming.

8. Fear the War Machine
Borderlings involved: (Unknown)

The encounters below are taken from an article in a newspaper. A few days later, the newspaper was reprinted without the sightings.

Reports of a Nazi war machine have been sighted in New York City's Central Park today. Large amounts of the local populous have sighted the machine in Central Park, although witnesses have said "It didn't do much. It just stood there, as if looking for something.". Witnesses described the mech as looking like a dog but attached to some sort of weird machine. It had something similar for a head, with cables going in and out of its body. Above its back pair of legs, two appendages could be seen, presumably to pump in fresh air for its pilots and pump used air out. As per protocol in the case of an attack, citizens stayed in their homes but reported their televisions to be malfunctioning, presumably from a signal jammer inside the war machine. When armed troops entered New York City to destroy both the mech and the Nazis piloting it, witnesses claimed to have seen it "Vanish into thin air". This is indeed the case, as our troops found no trace of the weapon. The only evidence to prove that it once stood in Central Park were four rectangular indents, presumably from its feet. If you have any more information about this machine, please contact your local authorities.

9. Confrontation at the Volksbühne
Borderlings involved: (Unknown)

This encounter was found written in the hidden diary of Nazi Commandant Richard Baer, the commandant of the Auschwitz I concentration camp from May 1944 to February 1945. It is assumed that he encountered the Borderling in May of 1941.

I only came to the theater to see a showing of Jud Süß. I was not expecting what would unfold the moment I stepped inside. After paying for my tickets, I sat down in the theater, and the film began to play. The oddities started happening after Süß shaved his beard. Before he can don clothes to blend in, the beard grew back within seconds. He shaves it back off, and it grows back quicker. It soon turns into this endless cycle of shaving and growing, and Süß is soon sitting on a literal
mountain of his own beard hair. I saw Jud Süß before, and this utterly ridiculous sight was never in it. It started zooming in on his hair, and what I saw next pains me to mention here. I can only describe what I saw next as this: colors too vibrant to comprehend, mountain ranges of wriggling bodies, rivers of bodily fluids, and gradual mutilation. For some reason, there was also literally no sound at all. There were other people in the auditorium with me, so I was surprised that none of them
attempted to object to what was happening. They simply sat there in eerie silence, staring at the screen with as much attention as a misbehaving child being scolded by one of their parents. I think it was about five minutes into these new scenes when they were making me sick.

The tension of the utter silence was getting to me, and having to take in all those disgusting sights made me want to puke. Eventually, I left the auditorium to look for a bag, but I managed to hold it together. Now I wanted to know who was behind the strange new film. Storming up to the projectionist's booth, I was going to have a nice little talk to whoever changed the film. However, the moment I kicked in the door to the projectionist's booth, I saw something in there that was beyond what
I had expected and anticipated in every possible manner. The abomination in there had long, black fingers and was utterly covered in film reels. Its body shape looked so human, yet so far from it as well. Shouting "Horror!", I whipped out my Luger P08 and shot it. It didn't react, and I could hear the bullet impact the wall adjacent to it. I seem to have scared it though, as it turned into countless reels, which all slithered into a crack in the wall. I am only writing this here because I fear that if I tell anyone about what I had seen, they would believe I had gone mad.

10. Sweet Motherboard
Borderlings involved: (Unknown, assumed to be a Nomoling), Intercyberling , Subspecies: Unknown

Thanks to my little sister and my father, I, being the big brother that I was at the time, had to go see the Emoji Movie with my family. After we got our tickets and went to our theater, the terrible film began to play. I had brought my computer with me at the time and sat way in the back, so I could use it while no one was looking. As it started, I reached for my computer to keep myself occupied, only to touch something that felt like pants. I looked, and I saw this big shit-colored blob
with a lot of heads fiddling with my computer. It had two big heads, with one watching the movie while the second had its face extremely close to the screen, practically breathing on it. It was slathering the keys of my computer with its tentacles. When I tried to get it to stop, it shoved me away. Then, my phone started buzzing, even enough I had put
it on mute at the start of the movie. When I looked, I had gotten this text from this random number, and the text it sent me was, and I'm not kidding when I say this, an endless stream of emojis, all of them butt peaches. Looking back at the horrible movie, I could see the screen dripping some sort of yellow fluid. When the screen started sprouting growths with human faces laughing like the in-show audience of a late-night sitcom, I ran out and never looked back. There's no way I'm going back in that theater.

11. 4 am Drive
Borderlings involved: Purinsumocholing

Written by S3S

It was 4 am and there's a large sofa in the streets. It was old and worn, torn in places. A homeless person slept on it for a couple of weeks now. This filthy piece of furniture was accompanied by bags of canned goods and a blanket. Rats are the only creatures that share the so-called living space with this poor soul. All that had suddenly changed that one night. I was coming home from my night shift, tired and weary. As I drove by the same place as the homeless man, the sofa was gone along with the canned goods and filth. He now slept on concrete like nothing happened. The sound of garbage trucks are nearby, but no signs of them anywhere on the block. What could have done this? Why is the garbage being collected so early in the morning? After I turned left, I saw another heap of garbage. There was a soft yellow light hovering over it. The sounds are coming from inside. I was weirded out when I saw it. I guess it was the lack of sleep that's making me see such strange things. I'm almost home, just a few blocks away.

I woke up around 4 am on the weekend, hearing the same unseen garbage trucks again. I realized this wasn't a sleep deprived hallucination.


...maybe they are just ordinary garbage trucks. Yeah...they're just doing their job...

...I need to go back to sleep.

12. The Sweet Wyrms
Borderlings involved: Glucovermiling

I was busy at a bar drinking with my friends Vasily and Grigori when I noticed somebody stumbling out of the bar as if drunk out of her mind. Normally I would pay people like this no heed, but Grigori thought that it would be a good idea to dare me to follow her. It took some convincing, but I eventually gave in and followed her out of the bar. She was walking towards the local grocery store. It was still dark out and no people were around other than me and her, but the streetlights kept me on her trail. I noticed that every so often, she would vomit. This was normal for a person who drank too much alcohol, but every time she puked, instead of bile, there were at least one or two multicolored worms that were either rounded or pointed at both ends. Although something inside me was nagging me to stop my search, I continued onwards. As I followed her, she took a sharp right turn and stumbled into a closed grocery store. Although under normal circumstances I would get law enforcement involved, I was worried about letting the law know about a potential alien invasion or an unknown parasitic infection. Following her into the storage room, she walked right to the center. That was when the show began. She keeled over and started vomiting countless worms in a seemingly endless stream of vomit. This went on for about a minute, and I was backed up against the wall closest to the door the whole time. After the minute had passed, she vomited up these
two massive worms that were at least as long as I was. They looked different from the rest, as they had distinguishable backs,
underbellies, and heads. They had what looked like horns on their heads. She then fainted, presumably from the pain of giving birth to these monsters. I immediately ran out of the grocery store and told my friends
about what happened. Unsurprisingly, none of them believed me, saying that I had too much to drink. Hell, I wouldn't have believed it either if I had heard the story from the point of view of someone else.

13. They are more than just test videos
Borderlings involved: Nomoling, Intercyberling

Written by S3S

Hi, my name is Adrian and I’ve seen some weird stuff while playing these test videos online on my phone. Some people had scratched the surface on how they had work. These test videos show simple colors and shapes, random recordings, and so on. They usually play loud beeps of various pitches. Most people say that they’re just that, test cards. What they don’t know is that they’re also a way for the unseen to communicate with one another. The frequencies in these loud sounds are a huge factor in this type of communication.

Anyways, here’s my story about my encounter with the unknown. I was on my smartphone looking through YouTube videos when I came across a channel called (name covered). All the videos show the same thing: random shapes and with two or three colors…and that’s it. I let my curiosity get the best of me. I watched one of their videos. Although the tones were loud, it seems somewhat melodic. I watched another video, the same thing but different melody. I looked at the time and realized it was 11 pm. It was getting late and I need to go to sleep. But something caught my eye. My wi-fi is disconnected. My signal is usually weak so it does go in and out of connection sometimes, which is frustrating to deal with. Checking the wi-fi list I saw a weak signal with a glitched name. Refreshing won’t help either. The signal has gotten stronger, now at all bars! I was going to restart my phone until I got a call from someone with a strange area code. I answered the call and got a timid voice on the other side. The conversation went something like this:

“Who’s this?”
(just silence)
“Who is it I’m speaking to?”
“…Can you play it again?”
“Say what”
“C-can you play it again? For me?”

At this point, I was a bit creeped out. This might’ve been a stalker! I was ready to hang up to call the police until I heard another voice. It sounded inhuman. I can’t make out what it’s saying because it’s so low and muffled. The man (or what I assumed was a man at the time) continued.
“Good…g-good. Thanks…”

The person on the other line hung up. Afterward, my phone pulled up the browser by itself. It played the last video from the strange channel but with some differences. The title, which was originally a series of numbers, was glitched and so is the rest of the text on the page. After the video ends, the browser immediately closed by itself. I hadn’t slept for an hour or two because I was so scared out of my mind. This is no ordinary stalker or hacker.
