    Ngl I would have probs adopted Charles (ghost boy/haunted teddy bear) as my ghost baby. All of the mom fun without any stretch marks or grocery store trips where you get sucked in to buying five toys and a box of junk sugar cereal.

    Charles obviously hated Eric because bean bear didn't do anything for months... and then attacked Eric... Ya think maybe Eric just fished him out of the trash?

    I've been around cats all of my life. I've had four all together, and I live with three now. One sleeps in my room every night. It's normal for them to crawl on you and try to sleep on top of your chest/shoulder area and sometimes they lose their balance and scratch at you by accident, but they are very tiny scratch marks...

    I don't have a possessed antique bear but a few years ago my grandma found a giant winnie the pooh plush strung up in a tree in the bush (like Australian woods not a plant lol) covered in red marker and decided to take it, wash it and give it to me as a present. That is my weird teddy bear story. Thank you grandma.

    I get that it was Charles making her boyfriend angry but if I walked in on someone I cared about and they were frozen, terrified, and crying I'd at least listen to them and calm them down. I wouldn't get mad and call them crazy. Whether or not I feel their fear is justified I know what it's like to be that scared and having some callously dismiss you is not fun in the slightest. I know it's fictional but if I were her I would've brought up how he blew me off when I needed him the most. Not to hurt him but simply to make him aware that when I was vulnerable he left me alone and to boot he purposefully insulted me. Maybe that's just me but even if I knew it was the bear I still would have said something rather than letting it go. Also, I would've been slightly more concerned that my neighbor was getting involved as well. He could've easily went over to the neighbor's house and talked to her and she would've said the same thing that they needed to keep their son in check and he could've clued in at that point and wondered who's kid was wandering around in their apartment at night. Even if he suspected his girlfriend that would've been a big enough red flag to at least notice that something real was going on.

    Charles the bear wasn't all that scary but maybe cause it's a made up scary story about a possessed teddy bear. I can only guess that ill looking boy was the spirit of the original owner of Charles the bear. And it's kinda sad for the spirit to be back in a helpless loop. And I collected plenty of stuffed animals over my 26 years so far and always be happy for more of course. But never ever any antique plushies cause they probably are filthy with disease and bugs. I'm afraid of that and especially if it would spread to my other fresh clean modern plushies cause there's no real way to clean stuff animals. But I'm not afraid of any stuffed animals with missing body parts. I still have an old horse toy that my first dog Lucy had attacked once and taken out one of it's bead eyes. I was in horror that she attacked my horse plushie, and sad that it was torn up and lost it's eye. Yet my grandma being so good at sewing, she was able to repair my horse's face where the missing eye was supposed to be. The sew job was incredible! It doesn't look like the face was torn apart. All it's missing is that eaten eye. And yes, I never got the missing eye recovered or replaced cause my horse was very unique so uncommon that I doubt my family could find another one of it's kind to get a new eye to match the one it still has. Also I think it's rather adorable still even with one eye remaining on the face.

    I have a porcelain bride doll that was gifted to me before grandmother passed away, I certainly hold some emotional attachment to it. Sadly, during the night I find her a bit.. terrifying. I often feel like I’m being watched when I get up in the middle of the night. Idk I don’t wanna instantly assume the doll might be haunted.. It’s probably just me overthinking and all those scary stories I watch but I do. I am a bit open minded more like-. Spiritual every since grandmother died. It really doesn’t help that I named my porcelain doll after an urban Mexican Legend. Grandmother used to say “don’t name her after an urban legend, you might attract unwanted forces.” The doll and the vibe it gives off are creepy but because I hold her so dear to me.. I decide to overlook this fact because it’s the only thing that reminds me of my grandmother.

    iirc I read a short story where a girl is given an old doll that is super duper old and haunted. she thinks that the doll has some character, so she cleans it and makes it a new outfit. the doll turns out to absolutely be super duper haunted, but the doll also likes the girl very much, so it protects her

    As far as I have known, there are things like this happen before but the item might not be a bear. I heard from my mum that they used to live in a haunted house when she was still a baby. I wasn't sure was it real but there were a lot of things happening in that house until they bring in a buddha. she brought me to the location of the house years after it was demolished. During that time, the neighbours said that a girl who studied secondary school died in front of the house that haunted the house. She was coming back home from school like usual. But after she got down from a school bus and the bus had left, a cargo van drove her over. She died in that accident and since then families who moved into the house left the house in 2 weeks.

    lol... This reminds me of when my mom had went on a long drinking binge, and when she ran out of drink, she was still rummy the next day. I was playing in my bedroom because she was out in the living room passed out. Suddenly I hear her scream in utter horror and I run to her out in the hall asking, Mom, Mom, what's wrong? She had her hand cupped tightly over her mouth, shaking, crying, nearly falling over. Her being so frightened was totally scaring me. I went to her to hold her up by her free arm, still trying to get her to tell me what happened. I thought for sure she saw a ghost, or perhaps the devil again. This would happen sometimes after her drinking binges would end. At those times, she was always just as terrified. After about maybe six minutes of her crying, her hand still held over her weeping mouth, she finally pointed down at the carpet in right in front of her. Still crying, she said very seriously, I thought you shrunk. I looked at where she'd pointed and laughed despite myself. There on the floor of the hallway was my china doll laying face down, with a full head of dark black hair. She was wearing a red dress. The day before I was wearing a red dress that looked similar that which the doll was wearing, and the doll's mop upon her head was somewhat like my thick long dark hair. I comforted her and told her, I'm okay, mom. That's just my doll. She was still shaking and crying, so I quickly brought my doll into my room and hid her in my toy box, went back out to the hall, and closed my door behind me. I then helped my mom back to the living room to the couch where she could sit or lay down while I got her a glass of water. She took a long time before finally stopping crying. She explained to me many years later that she always suffered from DT's after drinking for so long and would hallucinate, so when she saw my doll, she literally believed that I had shrunk. Now, thankfully, she has been sober for like 20 years or so, and her encounters with spooky things has lessoned somewhat, yet those stories are far more troubling.

    tbh I'd try negotiating first. Like "Hey, I know you wanna like... haunt and stuff... but do you pay rent? Cause I need to pay rent for this place so that we may both stay here. Idc if you can't, I just wanna lay down some ground rules...Hell we can negotiate haunting hours and what you can do. I can let you watch TV at night on low volume even, idc." and if not I'll be like "Ok, ima take you to the nearest pawn shop... no guarantee the next person you go to doesn't just straight up burn you for what you pull."
