We are reeeeeeally excited to start this Horror month in FANFIC FRIDAY! Just like we did last year, everything in this month of October will obviously be horror/Halloween themed.

As usual, make sure to send us your requests and fic recs for next week.

So here’s 10 American Horror Story horror recs. As usual, make sure to read the tags and warnings, as some of these fanfics can get really dark and twisted!
