We're All Going to the World's Fair ★★★★★

Many many years ago when i still went on 4ch, someone posted in a thread I was scrolling about how they attempted to summon a succubus in order to broker a deal to get laid, only for the process to not work out how they expected and, long story short, how at the point they made that post their wish had come true - they were getting laid left and right, but had completely ceased even to derive any pleasure from it, had lost the ability to experience any kind of meaningful connection with other human beings, all interaction reduced to pure transaction and penetration of meat, and they realized that rather than summoning a succubus they had basically become one instead. I have no record of this, no way of proving it happened, and no means of conveying its content in a way that will effectively communicate how this was very much not a creepypasta (which I never had any interest in or affinity for) or someone bullshitting or trolling, so I don't have any way of getting across what it was that made me absolutely know, not believe but know, in my marrow, that what they were saying was true, even if their interpretive framework wasn't; that this was someone who had deeply and thoroughly spiritually mutilated themselves and described it with such a dissociative matter of factness and deeply upsetting specificity of detail that I will take it to my grave.

I've never told anyone about this before. Maybe I'm the only person on this planet other than the person who wrote it who remembers or cares. I'd like to believe they maybe got help, had a moment of clarity, were able to change and heal. I'd really like to imagine a happier ending for them, but I don't think I'd believe it.

I swear to god this is a true story.

I got 20 minutes into this before I started tearing up and when I got to the scene on the poster I just started bawling my eyes out.
