*whispers* y’all should submit some piano things cause I’m kinda drained for ideas

In return for my prodding to submit things, here’s something that just happened:

Due to just having been working on music, I was on my computer, with my keyboard (as in, piano keyboard) in my lap. I was reading an interactive creepypasta, when suddenly my browser glitches out something awful. (Safari does it a lot - but I need its screenreader.) It managed to happen right at the freakiest point of the story, and I was so scared that it was actually the website about to do some shock-picture thing I freaked out and managed to slam my elbows against the keyboard, producing a noise I’m sure the entire house heard.

A second later all I hear from upstairs is “Is the keyboard okay???”

3 notes Tags: storytime with pianothings but srsly guys submissions would be appreciated wait what if it was the website about to do that am I too chicken to go back and check the world may never know
