I felt pretty mean
I once showed my freind a long video from amnesia for a loong time ago, the room was dark and we had on full screen and full volume. My freind is scared easily so she was pretty frightened. Later we went down to the basement in my house to get something, she went to the bathroom downstairs that was located in a dark hallway. I meanwhile hid behind a wall and let out a loud monster noise from...
Down once more.
I decided to go downstairs in the middle of the night again, but this time to get some chocolate. Now, if you step on certain areas of the second floor of my house, you hear a banging noise that comes from downstairs in the basement, which my dad finished himself. I don’t remember what the reason for the noise is, but tonight I got particularly freaked out, thinking it was something coming...
An Exhausting Nightmare
A while ago, my dad told me one morning that I had screamed (at the top of my lungs) in my sleep. I didn’t believe him until my brother confirmed it. Looking back on it now, it reminds me of Daniel’s Diary, when he wrote, “Alexander had heard my screams and asked me to join him in the parlor.” The strange thing is, I had no recollection of the dream that caused me to...
Flappy is rubbing off on me
I bought Amnesia for my mom and I for christmas and I haven’t shut up about it since. The other night I stepped out of my bathroom and it was pitch black. My first thought was “Holy shit no wonder Daniel slowly goes insane in the dark.” I peeked around the corner and heard my dad coming. I waited patiently until he was right next to me and stomped on the ground. Loudly. He...
Staircases at night.
Mmm. Just had my first IRL Amnesia moment. I had to go downstairs to get my phone just a few minutes ago. Now, I’m really lazy when it comes to pretty much anything, so as I was walking down the hallway from my room to the staircase I was thinking, “Eh, I’m not turning on the light.” That thought was quickly interrupted by, “OH, NOPE, THAT’S NOT A GOOD...
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from MLHA!
zerachielamora: mylifehasamnesia: Got any holiday-related Amnesia shenanigans to share? My family opens presents on Christmas Eve, so I went to bed that night very late, talking to a friend. Today I woke up after 11am. Since I got 2 props for my cosplay this year, my dad asked me, “Why were you up so late? You and Daniel having fun?” And I replied by saying, “We were running from the...
Things that go bump in the night...?
Just last night I was walking down my hallway when I heard something creak and fall up stairs. My heart-rate went up and I looked for the nearest light source (in this case, a charging phone) and funnily enough, I felt a lot safer. Living in a apartment block in the city, you get used to all sorts of weird noises’at night-time but because of Amnesia, I’ve been jumping at the slightest...

Got any holiday-related Amnesia shenanigans to share?
My first Amnesia IRL moment.
A few days ago, I left the classroom because my teacher asked me to run an errand, and as I’m walking down the hall, I hear this faint noise. I just thought “meh” and kept going. And then I turned the corner and it got a lot louder. A lot. And I swear it sounded just like the music/terrifying noise that plays in the background when Mr. No-face is running after you. I flipped my...
I completely forgot about this until now.
A few years ago, when I actually interacted with the outside world, one of my friends gave me a bracelet. As I recall, it has five-six orbs on it and she gave it to me because she thought I’d like it, I think one orb was missing? I dunno. So I gladly took it. The orbs were all blue, I could submit a picture if I find it. But, the thing is, when I went back inside and was playing around with...
It’s been months since I’ve played Amnesia, but I still open drawers bottom to top. I never did that before playing the game. MLHA
diamondcrispy asked: I recently found your blog and I love it, it's been making me laugh this whole morning and my brothers looking at me like I'm Daniel maniacally laughing before I'm about to murder someone
Something close to heart failure...
So, while in collage, I lived on-campus and had a medical single. I’d been playing Amnesia with friends, and was getting into the fandom. One morning, with my windows open and the light pouring in, I was taking a break from watching LPs to do some German homework. Now, my room was kinda messy at the time, and I’d been out food shopping the day before. Out of the blue, I hear the sound...
If I get a blue orb in, I'm breaking it...
Right now, I work with antiques/collectables and truly love how much my job reminds me (daily) of Amnesia. For example: antique vases from Prussia, beer steins and clocks with black eagles on them, and glassware in the “Mayfair” (or “Open Rose”) pattern. Seriously, it’s a rose pattern… named Mayfair. It’s only a matter of time before I get my hands on an...
This morning, I saw a trail of liquid stains leading away from my apartment My first thought was that it was blood, following by wondering just how drunk the neighbors must’ve been if they were bleeding on our stairs on a Monday night. Then, I realized that it wasn’t quite blood colored; it was pink. MLHA
Trolling Amnesia Friends
One time when I was at Safeway, I saw my friend across the store picking out some bagels at lunch. He had been playing Amnesia recently and it really made him on edge lately, so I decided to take advantage of it. I crept up behind him and made the best grunt noise I could muster. He immediately cries out in fear and ducks and crouches behind the bagel stand, covering his head like he’s...
Because we are just this weird, my two friends in photography decided to name our table. I am desperately vying for the name to be Blarghghhgg. MLHA
daniellaughingalonewithlaudanum: Today my dad told me “Don’t Forget” regarding to don’t eat after 8 because lol bloodwork in the morning After that i said “Some things mustn’t be forgotten. The shadow hunting me … I must hurry”. What has this game done to me
So I was reading this book
chairmodeactivated: And it took place in Mayfair. And all I could think of was Amnesia.
I find it hard to finish my Bible study of the Book of Daniel without thinking of the protagonist from Amnesia. I also think of Alexander too, when the book prophesies about Alexander the Great. Well, Agrippa did compare Daniel of Mayfair to the Daniel of the Bible. MLHA
On our list of important Imperialism era people in World History, my teacher wrote “Daniel Livingstone” instead of “David Livingstone.” My mind automatically filled Daniel’s past in as a Imperialist missionary turned archeologist. MLHA
So my friend and I are doing an Amnesia themed...
And every time we get to class, we greet each other by holding out our hands like we’re holding lanterns, bro fist, and then drop our arms and make a sound as if we ran out of oil. The we get to photoshopping ourselves with Mr. Flappie. MLHA
There's a water treatment plant beside a train...
And every time I go near that place I always hear a whirring sound exactly like the “monster chase” theme coming from the treatment plant. I always check my surroundings (even in broad daylight) every time I go there to catch the train. Just in case. MLHA
My dog scratches at my bedroom door whenever she...
Used to not bother me, but now it scares the living shit outta me every time. MLHA.
I was diagnosed with PTSD years ago after surviving an abusive situation. I have reoccurring nightmares, grind my teeth, am easily startled, re-experience unpleasant events (flashbacks), and take tranquilizers. It may sound silly, but after playing Amnesia, it makes me feel a little bit better to think about Daniel and the great lengths he went to to redeem himself. He’s not an exemplary...
Brennenburg Science Building
My major requires me to spend a lot of time in the (newer) Science Building on campus. And despite it being newer, it can be incredibly creepy when you’re one of the few people in it, especially at night. And considering that MLHA, I cannot help but note the similarities (or perceived similarities) between the building and Castle Brennenburg: -There’s a biology lab downstairs that...
Rise and Shin--Blarghraghraahglblragh
My roommate and I used to make gurgling noises when we both rolled out of bed each morning. Now when we both wake up, for the first 15 minutes, both of us pretty much communicate in Grunt-language. And we can actually understand each other. My Life Has Amnes-BLARGHRAGHRAGHRABRLRAGH
So at work today...
Manager: Can someone cut the limes? Me: -hears cut the lines- Cut the lines. Me: ….PAINT THE MAN, CUT THE LINES. MLHA.
The other day, my family was going out to eat.
As we turned into the parking lot for our restaurant, I noticed something I never had before. The area was called “The Baron’s Market.” MLHA.
I was doing word problems in my chemistry class,
and besides feeling like “it needs more cuprite,” the first problem was about mixing Ammonia to form Ammonium. I immediately changed both to “Amnesia” to form “Ammnesium.” MLHA.
I say ‘bwarg’ (the Grunt sound) instead of ‘blah’ on every occasion. MLHA
So at work,
I keep saying “amount TINDERED” instead of “amount TENDERED” when I’m figuring out the change. MLHA
I live out in the country...
So my power goes out frequently. When it does, I grab my lantern like flashlight and sneak around my house, pretending to be scared and confused Daniel. MLHA
Whenever my ears ring, my first thought ALWAYS is “Oh God, my sanity is gone!” MLHA.
My friend and I were dividing up work for a class.
When she gave me my assignment, I said, “Okay, let me just a put a momento in my journal,” as I pulled out my planner. MLHA.
I used to always refer to my family as "the...
And I always compare my family to characters in fandoms I’m in. But for the past few mornings I’ve been noticing some things within the relationships of me and my family. I’m Daniel, my mom’s Alexander, my dad’s a grunt, and my brothers are brutes. But the best and most hilarious part of it all - my cat is my Agrippa. MLHA
I used to be quite gentle when dealing with...
…now I just kind of throw them haphazardly across the room, sometimes saying things like, “No, go over there.” Also, I always make notes of closets, corners, and elevated ground I can jump on as I go throughout my day. MLHA.
During lecture classes I use my laptop to take notes, as I find it easier and more efficient than taking notes by hand. Anyway, because of the subject there are times where we have to write the word “America”, and because of me constantly having to tag pictures with the word “Amnesia” here on good ol’ Tumblr, my fingers have conditioned themselves to write said word...
I was always a forgetful person
But ever since I finished playing Amnesia I feel like I’ve been forgetting things more often and forgetting important things. And it makes me wonder if someone’s slipped drops of an Amnesia Potion into something I’ve had recently… MLHA
Student in School
Every time I go into Online School every day, I can’t get my mind off of the fact when one of the guys that comes online, when ever I see his name I chuckle to myself. It’s Daniel of course, and every time I hear it or see it now my mind wanders to Amnesia stuff. MLHA
Art Student Grunt
The basement in my college’s art building is five kinds of creepy. I went in there once on a quiet weekend and all the lights were off, except for a red light at the end of the hallway. It looked exactly like the prison in Amnesia and the machinery whirrs to the beat of the Grunt chase theme. I sprinted out of there. MLHA
A couple of days ago I was researching for information on plague doctors and found out they’d use rose petals and laudanum as a way to keep the “putrid air” away from them. MLHA
I will never open doors the same again.
Nor walk through halls. …and I want a lantern. MLHA
secondsuitoralois asked: I love you. Just sayin'
The day after I watched a Let’s Play of the DLC, I went up to my friend and bombarded her with everything Alois says in the jail cell blocks. Her name is Justine. MLHA
Here's a little story
As I was getting into my car to drive to my drawing class, I turned on radio and started listening to NPR(National Public Radio) and they were talking about how the state of Texas has been going through a bad drought for the past couple of years and as I was listening, the newscaster says “This drought has been so terrible, Texas has become a GIANT TINDERBOX!”. After hearing that, I...
