October 2015 Halloween Discussion Post + Creepy Funko Pop Pack Giveaway

October 1, 2015 at 5:11 PM

As some of you have already noticed, the ratings stars have once again turned to pumpkins. This means that it’s finally October again, and thus time for our annual Halloween discussion post and giveaway!

Just like in 2014 and 2013, the October discussion post will serve as a sort of catch-all for any Halloween chatter. What are your Halloween costume plans? Will you be trick-or-treating, throwing a party, or otherwise celebrating the spooky season? Which pastas are your favorite to re-read around Halloween? You can even tell us what your favorite Halloween candy is, if you’d like. The only rules are as follows: no stalking/harassment, no offensive speech, no outright bullying/rudeness, and do try to stay on the topic of Halloween and the giveaway. In other words, keep it relevant and keep it civil. Be excellent to each other!

Now, as for the contest…

This year I’ve purchased a little “paranormal pack” of Funko Pop figures. I tried to get a decent mix of fandoms, so hopefully my choices will appeal to most of you!

ONE winner will receive the three following Funko POP! figures, brand new and in box:

Ash from the Evil Dead series:

Dana Scully from the X-Files series:

Weeping Angel from the Doctor Who series:

You may enter through this widget:

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Rules & Legal Stuff:
The contest will run from October 2nd to midnight on November 1st. Note that you can repeat the Twitter entry once per day for more entries, however you must send the tweet with the link to this post included for it to be a valid entry! Seriously, guys, this applies to the other bonus entry methods: follow the rules, because I do actually, manually, really, truly double-check that the winner has done everything correctly before I contact them. Even if the RNG machine spits out your entry, if I look and see that you’ve somehow cheated, I’ll just disqualify your entry and pick a new winner. Cheating/lazy entries do nothing but waste your time and mine.

Please pay attention to the terms and conditions. For legal reasons, this giveaway is only open to legal residents of USA & Canada who are 18 years of age or older. Void where prohibited or restricted by law. No exceptions.

There are affiliate codes included in the links to the Funko POP! figures.

September 2015 Discussion Post: Fan Cast Your Favorite Pastas

September 1, 2015 at 12:00 AM

Of all the discussion posts we’ve had across the years, November 2012’s “Which Creepypasta Would You Like to See as a Movie?” is one of our most popular: it still receives comments and has breached the 1000 comment milestone (a feat only shared by March 2013’s “What Do You Most Fear?”).

Given that enthusiasm the community clearly has for imagining their favorite stories as movies or television shows, let’s indulge ourselves a little bit further: how would you fan cast your favorite Creepypastas?

For those of you not familiar with the concept of fan casting, it’s something particularly common in book, video game and comic fandoms – basically, a fan comes up with a list (usually accompanied by snappy graphics/gifs and/or some thoughtful reasoning for their decision) as to which celebrities they’d want to see portray their favorite characters from the series in question. You can see some examples here and here.

A few of you did venture into this territory on the movie post, but let’s jump in fully to the topic here. Let us know who you would personally cast as the characters in various creepypasta, and please tell us why as well! If you want to include pictures as well, that’s fine, just make sure that they are work-safe.

Please don’t limit yourself to the ‘big name’ pastas – if there are any lesser-known stories that have resonated with you enough that you can imagine them fully played out on film, please share your thoughts! I’d like for this post to be more than 5000 Jeff fan-casts, so let’s expand our discussion beyond the predictable, cookie-cutter Creepypasta character roster, please.

As always, have fun and keep things civil!

June 2015 Discussion Post: Do You Believe in Divination?

June 1, 2015 at 12:00 AM

Last month’s discussion post about superstition was a lot of fun to read! June’s post will be tangentially related: this month I want to know if you believe in divination.

For clarity, this is the definition of ‘divination’ as per Google:

the practice of seeking knowledge of the future or the unknown by supernatural means.

This would include tarot, ouija, i-ching, astrology, prophetic dream interpretation – even the magic 8-ball toys sold to children, if one were to take them seriously. Divination has countless different forms across cultures and countries, so I’m certainly leaving some forms out of my list of examples – if I didn’t mention something that you subscribe to and/or practice, please take this opportunity to tell us all about it in the comments!

I’m interested in hearing what everyone’s beliefs are, and how and why they came to such conclusions. If you have any eerie stories about something that solidified your belief in a particular flavor of divination, of course we’d like to hear about it!

It’s my hope that the community can find this discussion both interesting as well as inspiring – I saw a few comments in the superstitions post where the author said they’d gleaned a story idea from someone’s anecdote, so I’m hoping that we can continue that effect here.

As always, be respectful to one another – even if you’re the skeptic supreme, try to be nice. It won’t hurt you.

May 2015 Discussion Post: Very Superstitious

May 1, 2015 at 12:00 AM

This month, I’d like to discuss superstitions!

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term, a superstition is a belief that two things are connected, despite a lack of any concrete proof. As an example, one of the most famous superstitions is that breaking a mirror will curse you with seven years of bad luck. There’s no true evidence that any actual causation exists here, yet this belief is still passed down over generations.

So tell us:

Do you subscribe to any beliefs that could be called superstitions? If so, why? Do you have anecdotes of your superstitions appearing true? Do you remember when you first learned any of your superstitions?

If you don’t personally believe any superstitions, but you have familial or cultural superstitions that you’d like to share, please do! Very often these beliefs appear, evolve and spread within certain regions or groups, and I’ve always found it fascinating to compare notes.

If you have any theories or stories about how a specific superstition developed, please feel free to share with us!

The only guidelines here are the general commenting rules: be polite and don’t use this topic as an excuse to troll or insult each other.

Obligatory soundtrack incoming:

…now have fun!

March 2015 Discussion Post: Least Favorite Creepypasta Genres & Topics

March 1, 2015 at 12:00 AM

This month’s post is intended as a companion to last month’s Favorite Creepypasta Genres & Topics discussion. I’d like to get a handle on the current state of the community’s likes and dislikes, both for my own use when selecting pastas as well as for the benefit of aspiring authors. I plan on linking both this post and the prior topic when I re-open submissions, in an attempt to reduce the signal to noise ratio of submissions. It’s my hope that, upon seeing which topics and genres are generally disliked versus which are enjoyed, some prospective authors will self-police a bit and refrain from sending in stories for which this particular community has expressed overwhelming distaste, if any such topics/genres come to light.

So: Which topics and genres of creepypasta are your LEAST favorites?

To clarify the “topics vs genres” categorization, I’ll copy & paste my example from last month here:

For example, we’ve had a minor uptick in sci-fi submissions (this would be the genre) as of late, and I’ve seen a few people mentioning that they’re specifically enjoying the alien stories (and ‘aliens’ would be the topic). That would be the sort of information that I’m looking for with this question. Do you prefer reading about zombies? Or do you prefer post-apocalyptic fare without the z-word included? Do you always hope to see more pastas with a mythological bent? Or perhaps you’re more into the occult tales? I hope that you get the idea!

I hope that everyone will weigh in on this topic, and if you haven’t yet contributed to last month’s post, please do so when you can.

Thanks, everyone!

February 2015 Discussion Post: Favorite Creepypasta Genres & Topics

February 1, 2015 at 12:00 AM

In the past, I’ve asked for a lot of information about the community’s creepypasta preferences. We’ve discussed our least favorite creepypasta tropes, ranked the best and worst pasta categories, and talked about which pastas we believe are overrated and/or underrated. This month’s topic is a logical progression for that line of questioning:

Which topics and genres of creepypasta are your favorites?

For example, we’ve had a minor uptick in sci-fi submissions (this would be the genre) as of late, and I’ve seen a few people mentioning that they’re specifically enjoying the alien stories (and ‘aliens’ would be the topic). That would be the sort of information that I’m looking for with this question. Do you prefer reading about zombies? Or do you prefer post-apocalyptic fare without the z-word included? Do you always hope to see more pastas with a mythological bent? Or perhaps you’re more into the occult tales? I hope that you get the idea!

This is your chance to let both the aspiring writers that generate our content and myself know which genres and subjects you’d like to see appear more frequently on the site. So let us hear it!

As always: have fun, express yourself, but please keep it polite. Thanks!
