Horrifying October - Final roundup

Hello all!

First and foremost, I'd like to thank the participants of the Horrifying October event - it was wonderful seeing all those recs and new works emerge and I was so happy that there were so many entries. I hope that all the members of the community also enjoyed the event.

A special thank you goes to Himring, hennethgalad, and Alex Cat who provided fills for most prompts. Ridiculous Squid and Lancelottie also provided lovely fills for a few prompts - thank you.

(Please feel free to use the banner above, if you'd like to.)

So, here's the final roundup. If I have left anyone out, please let me know and I'll edit the post to add your contribution. Thank you!
