#27 - Title still TBD
Narrator - Owner of storage unit, but filled with grandfather's belongings after his death.  Our narrator is a physical therapist who was responsible for cleaning up his Grandfather's estate after his death 7 years ago, and now has to clean out the storage unit. He is dealing with the emotion and issues with his family's issues and his own demons.  I hope to make the horror in this story a very personal one. 
The narrator is friendly and outgoing, I'd be interested in collaborating with neighboring units briefly as the characters cross paths.  He will be present over the course of the five days, but will not be in the units on day 5.

Figured I should make this official now that I know where it's going. Sorry it's taken so long.

Unit #35--'Salient Specimens'
Narrator: Michael Danvers, friend and former classmate of Shannon Gorski (unit owner, not present)
Unit contains: plaster heads (like wig models), display cases of pinned insects, and veterinary anatomical models ('split dogs'), all under plastic dust-covers
Spoilers: I'll be working with existentialism, self awareness, and free will
Spiritualism and contagious superstition play a large role in the story, though not to the point of conjuring ghosts or anything like that.

Extra notes, if they matter:
-Michael doesn't get along with people, but not for lack of trying.
-Shannon was injured in a car accident in September and cannot clear the unit herself.
-Shannon grew up in Havre, but moved to Fargo, ND, for college, where she met Michael.
-Unit #35 had been largely ignored for about five years until the Custodial Corpse call to action.
-Michael knows nothing of why he has to empty the unit, just that Shannon asked him to do it before the 14th.
-A physical description of Michael is over in the Location Collaboration thread...here: http://toospooky.com/fleming-storage-units-wips/location-collaboration/msg2373/#msg2373

Nightmares can be such flimsy things with such voracious appetites. Turn them away once and they can starve.
