Ok so I had to call out of work today due to still being extremely sore from CampAnime a couple of days ago and i didn't feel like laying in my bed in misery so I decided to watch some classic Goosebumps episodes on Netflix. I watched the episode "A Night in Terror Tower" and what really got me was the amount of parallels between this episode/book and that of "The Dark Tower" series by Stephen King. There may be spoilers so don't read the list below if you aren't caught up on either and wish to be via actually reading/watching both:

   (A Night in Terror Tower - The Dark Tower)
1. The brother(present version) and sister(past version) are named "Eddie" and "Susannah" - Eddie and Susannah are two of the main characters in the Dark Tower series.
2. The brother and sister are both called by the title "Edward/Susannah of York" - Eddie and Susannah as well as Jake go by the title "(insert name) of New York).
3. Eddie and Sue were stalked by a "man in black" throughout the episode/book who seems to have time traveling powers - "The Man in Black" is an important character in the series who also has the ability to shift time... at least that's what I got from Roland's encounter with him at the end of the first book.
4. This one is kinda silly but the aforementioned Terror Tower is a tower where cruel and "dark" deeds happen - Dark Tower is the name of the book series. 
 (From this point on dropping the "-" of comparison between the two)
5. Characters in the past of "A Night in Terror Tower" share speaking patterns with those of Roland's world such as the Town of Hambry(at least a few kids said "thee" in Part 2 of Terror Tower).
6. The dilemma of Eddie and Sue not being able to remember their past lives was similar to how Jake Chamber's couldn't quite remember his past life after "dying" at the end of the first Dark Tower book and then going back to his regular existence.
7. Also both Eddie/Sue and Jake were eventually reminded of their past lives and then brought back into times/worlds they barely knew by someone who had essentially adopted them(Roland/Morgred).
8. Kinda stretching this one as it was already kinda alluded in previous numbers but both stories have a time traveling element.

That was about all I could come up with but thought I would share anyway and it was a great distraction from the pain in my back and neck. Can anyone think of any other comparisons?

I've been conventioning for about 3 years now and I take frequent amounts of video and pictures which always ended up getting uploaded to youtube but then I thought about it "why don't I upload the pictures to deviantart as well so that people will be able to view those many pictures whenever they want to and in the original aspect ratio?" So I finally made this DA chronicling the many cosplays of cons!
