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!

    I was hanging out with my hipster friends at a local park. They started talking about Creepypasta and slenderman. I already knew what slenderman was at the time. I asked them what creepypasta was and, being the hipsters they were, gave me a long, confusing explanation. I went home and looked it up. I found the main page of the website. The first creepypasta I ever read was The Thing That Stalks The Fields. I must’ve read 5 or 6 pages my first time(bad idea on my part). I couldn’t sleep for weeks, but I couldn’t stop reading. Creepypasta got more mainstream and my hipster friends wanted nothing to do with it, but i continued reading.

    So I really like Pewdiepie’s gaming videos on YT; playing amnesia and slender, etc. Once, I saw a video he did with Cryaotic, and checked out cry’s channel, where I saw a couple of scary story readings. Lots of people were requesting him to read creepypasta, so I saw some of his readings and went to research myself, and came face-to-face with Jeff the Killer. That started my creepy reading addiction, which had been already triggered (but long-forgotten) by the goosebumps series, when I was little. I also had known the SCP foundation through pewdiepie, and was extremely delighted to see that both sites are linked to each other!

    I was on the app, ifunny, and i saw the famous Candle Cove story, read it, and commented on that person’s pictures so I could go back to their profile. All they post are creepypastas. :) Ever since I found that person, ive been addicted! Then I found out that there was a website, came here….here I am! :p Of course, the username of this person is…Creepypasta.

    the way i came upon creepypasta was quite freaky.(well, to me anyways) It was maybe 3 in the morning and i had woken up from a really creepy nightmare and could not go back to sleep. (which is pretty normal for me) i was derping around on the internet to clear my mind but i still had the sense something was watching me. i was on my email and some stranger emailed me and sent me a link to this site. well, to one of the stories. it turns out that the story i read was about the thing in my nightmare. which freaked me out. a lot. lol but ta da! that is how i found creepypasta!

    My love of the Condemned games, the best survival-horror series ever, led me to the discovery of Creepypasta. I went on Google to search for news on Condemned 3 (which still hasn’t been made yet, sadly) when I saw the story about the hacked game Condemned 3: Rise of the Oro. The shock value of the story took me by surprise, and I was impressed. After finding the MrCreepyPasta channel on Youtube and hearing brilliant stories like Candle Cove, Doors, and sadistic ones like Cupcakes, I was hooked. Listening to enough stories resurrected the horror-writer in me, and I will add more tales of terror to this amazing site.

    I was a huge horror story fan since roughly 2005. It was read a scary story and get scared or dream of it at night. I took a short break from it around 2010 but it was tempting to read more. I started again in early 2011. One day I was searching scary stories and, you guessed it, I found a creepypasta. I thought I couldn’t sit through 20+ minutes hearing a story but I did because it was very intriguing. That’s when I became interested with creepypasta and I found this website a few months later :D

    I was checking out some posts on dorkly.com when I came across the Huanted Majora’s Mask Cartridge story. I liked it so much that I looked it up later to show my friends and was directed here at one point. One of the best things to ever happen.

    Slender man is actually how I discovered that creepypasta existed..lol but my husband listened to the creepypastas read on YouTube. He talked me into listening to “squidwards suicide”.
    I was like “WTFFFF” so I went to the site and was instantly hooked. :):)

    About four months ago, I was researching Slenderman, and I came across a song called “Slendy is watching me”. One of the verses was “I cant sleep because of a creepypasta I read”.
    I had heard about it before, from Facebook and twitter, but had never looked into it before. I googled it, clicked on this site, and instantly fell in love. My first one was something about a never ending road. Since then I have visited some of the other creepypasta sites, but this one remains my favorite. :)

    Not 100% Sure how I came across it but the first creepypasta I read was the haunted Majora’s Mask cartridge. I found that whole story to be pretty thrilling. After reading it following the arg watching the youtube videos and everything I wanted more. Reading through comments on the videos I heard about creepypasta. Not too interested at the time I kept skimming. Then I went on Deviantart and looked at pictures of Ben and Kelbris and all that fun stuff. Reading through those comments I heard more and more about creepypasta. So I went to my handy dandy google search bar and looked it up. Then I found Squidward’s Suicide and well. That was that. I’ve avidly visited the site since then.

    Through IMDb I found Squidward’s Suicide, and from that suicidemouse.avi. Couldn’t sleep for days, but found them interesting and decided to look up more. Came across a forum on the best creepypastas and spent hours reading them ha. Just went from there

    It started out when I watched a video on YouTube called “Bane plays Slender”. If you haven’t seen it, check it out; it’s hilarious. Anyway, that got me into the whole Slender Man Mythos. Inevitably, while I looked for more stories related to the Mythos, I ended up here. And I’m certainly glad I did!

    My cousin was over at my house and told me a bunch of scary stories. I asked her where she got them, and she said creepypasta.com. Two years later, right after the site went into stasis, I remembered the site address and I read through a majority of the 2008-10 pastas in a day.

    I was playing The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask and my sister told me about the “haunted cartridge” and at her behest, I looked it up. I think the common name of this creepypasta is “Ben Drowned.” I read it, watched the videos, and had my mind completely blown. I googled other sources regarding “Ben Drowned,” and one site said it was a creepypasta. I then googled creepypasta and ended up here. And the rest is history.

    The first time i heared of creepypasta i was on facebook after viewing my home page for a little more than a hour i came across a youtube link. The first thing i saw was the picture it was of a man with black around his small eyes, he had long black hair,and a big smile across hes pale face.
    I clicked on the link which broght me to a video called Jeff The Killer.I finished the video with the same smile across my face and i wanted more……

    My friend Jack is a huge PastaGeek, and one day he showed me a picture of Jeff. I wanted to know more, so i asked him to tell me the story of this weird man. He simply gave me a slip of paper and walked away. The slip of paper said…
