Which Victorian Ghost Is Haunting Your House?

You got: The Cross Stitch Spirit

Oh, how lovely! You were lucky enough to get the Cross Stitch Spirit, a kindly young soul of an unwed woman. She is very good-natured, except that she goes around finishing everyone's needlework, which could be quite bothersome, if you're a perfectionist (she's pretty bad at cross stitch).

You got: The Pomade Poltergeist

Oh no– you've got your hands full with this one. The Pomade Poltergeist has lived in your house for MUCH longer than you have, and he will make that known. When he was alive, he doused himself with gallons of pomade, and to this day, he refuses to believe his pomade isn't where he left it. He will turn the house upside down every day for the rest of time if he has to. I'd take my word for it and get out now if I were you!

You got: The Permademon

This spirit may not even be Victorian, to be honest. I'm not entirely sure. And to tell you the truth, I don't think it was ever a human being. The Permademon roams from house to house, feeding on the souls of the living– and the energy of the weaker spirits that are already feeding on the souls of the living. There is no escaping the Permademon; if you move, it knows. The only known realm the Permademon fears is outer space, so I'm afraid you'll have to move to outer space as soon as possible.

You got: The Entire Cast of a Farce

I've got some good news and some bad news for you. The good news is, you won't at all be afraid of these spirits. The bad news is, you will probably grow quite annoyed with them. This 5-person cast is indeed quite loud and very well-rehearsed, and they perform five nights and two matinees per week. While they are invisible, you will probably grow quite weary of hearing the entire group surprisedly yelling each other's names in succession, chasing each other in one door and out the other, and more. Enjoy!

You got: The Polite Phantasm

You lucked out! He "lives" to serve. He'll pull out your chair for you, tuck you into bed, watch you sleep, make you breakfast...wait...what was the one before that? Well, he's mostly great!

You got: The Adorable Little Shadow

She's just a cute little shadow. Paranormal investigators have claimed that she is the spirit of a 5-year-old who refused to take her tonic. She's been seen silently walking around in the garden. She often gravitates towards children. People often talk about how cute she is, but how cute can a shadow really be? I just don't see it, honestly.
