Creepypasta

FavoriteLoadingAdd this post to your list of favorites!

This month’s topic was suggested by TVATR, and I’m very interested to hear everyone’s responses.

How did you first discover creepypasta? Not just this specific site (though of course, I am curious to hear how you ended up here as well, if you remember and would like to share), but I’m asking about your first experience with the entire creepypasta meme in general. Do you remember the first pasta that you ever read? Or did you stumble upon one of the myriad YouTube creepypasta video readings?

Let us know your earliest memory of creepypasta in the comments of this post, and have fun!

  • Freaky Fred

    So I’m in college, and I’m in this seminar about “Monsters of the ancient world,” basically an analysis of Greek/Roman folklore and stories about ghosts and witches and other various monsters. In order to give the class some more current material, our professor asked a few volunteers to make a presentation about Slenderman.
    I volunteered, and was soon looking up various stories/wikis about Slenderman, and my best source was easily the Creepypasta wiki. From there I read through all the real popular pastas (though the Slenderman stories themselves never impressed me, the only thing I find really creepy about Slenderman is the original two pictures).
    I got hooked after reading the Russian Sleep Experiment.
    and then…I was addicted…
    now, ’tis a sad life.

      I remember my good friend Calvin told me about the slenderman a long time ago before it got popular and I researched on slenderman, then found out about creepypasta.

      I must be honest, it was just last year. I remember hearing “Creepypasta”. When I was extremely bored and could find nothing to do on the computer, I looked up Creepypasta.com and guess what, it lead me here! But now I’m a huge fan of this place. It sometimes keeps me from sleeping… Please monitor that..

    Pokémon black version was the first creepypasta I have heard of, but the first creepypasta I sat through was Jeff the Killer, and finally the first I had read myself was Smile Dog. Each have a specific place in my heart for me. (This probably won’t matter but I haven’t even tried to write myself yet. I know i’ll disappoint myself :p)

    I first discovered this treasure trove of creepiness through a friend. He writes and had done a voice over of a creepy pasta.
    I really enjoyed it, and he mentioned this website. The first time I accessed the CreepyPasta website, I spent hours and hours that day reading through countless pastas. My imagination brought me face to hips with Slenderman, I killed with Jeff, and wondered who exactly was phone. I was infected with the Dust, ripped to pieces, sent to hell, spoke to a sentient porcaline doll. Ever since, I log on every morning, coffee in cup. Not to mention a few hours before I slumber at night. I’ve begun writing several creepy pastas myself, and as soon as submissions reopen I will send them in. I hope to make somewhat of a name for myself on here, seeing as how I spend so much time on this site, I want to contribute. If my pastas are accepted and prove frightening, than I hope you enjoy my creepy imagination as much as I do.

    The first pasta I read was on facebook a week ago. I don’t remember the exact name but it was the one about the copy shop and those sick pictures of burning children. After that I found “The Russian Sleep Experiment” and that is what I found really addicting.

    I ended up here after an extensive search for horror and became a fan instantly. It’s hard to remember not having creepypastas in my life. The first one I read was Jeff, so I kinda got one of the popular ones

    I was browsing Learn From My Fail (a part of failblog that no longer exists) and a person said to never read a ton of creepypasta right before going to bed

    I had heard the term before but had never bothered to look it up, so I did. This is also the story of how I found this site.

    It should come as no surprise that I spent the next 3 days reading almost constantly, and the next week not sleeping…

    I originally I heard of creepypasta from some random youtube videos, and I have loved it ever since. I started to get more interested after listening to SomeOrdinaryGamers (I heard of them from my brother) videos, with the first one being Sonic.exe. I cant remember which one I read first, but a pasta that has a special place in my heart is Crawl. It was propably in the first 10 I read, and in the top 10 Ive read. Back then it just managed to get me fully into the pasta. I remember it being 3am and I can still picture the same image of the clown in my head that I did then… Now it has gone to the point where I check this page (I found it through google) about three times a day :)

  • YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE USERNAME!

    Well On youtube one video led to another, and soon I was greeted by SquidWards Suicde, shitting myself, I decided to see what this ‘Creepypasta’ was. I only got onto Creepypasta WIKI. I read a lot of them, Dead Bart, Glitch, all new and scary. Only recently I rediscovered Creepypasta, but found the real site. And one thing led to Random comments, then YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE USERNAME! then submitting pastas. That led to crappypasta.That led to Pockets. Let led to submission. That led to happiness. I’m so glad I found this site derpbutt, thanks.

    I’m in acting class at our high school, and we had to do oral interpretation of a story. So I just Googled “scary story” (I know, I’m so fantastically creative) and it came to this site. I believe it actually came to Dear Abby, which is still the best pasta I’ve ever read on here. But, unfortunately, since the stories here aren’t actually published with a credited source, I couldn’t use Dear Abby or any other scary story :c

    I’ve always love horror. When I was in elementary school, I read every single scary book in the school library. So, when I was searching for good horror stories about 5 months ago, Creepypasta seemed perfect for me. I think the first story I read was one of the Candle Cove ones. After reading that and a couple others, like Psychosis, I was hooked.
