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!

    Three years ago I watched marble hornet videos and I was confused. My friend Nick said there was a story about it on a site called creepy pasta. I looked it up and the stories just entranced me. I feel in love with this site ever since.

    Well, it’s a really long story….I was really into competitive pokemon battling, and one day on Smogon I found a post called ‘Scariest pokedex entries’. This intrigued me, so I looked up scary pokemon …… and came face to face with Pokemon ghost black, which I immediately adored. That led me to the lavender town syndrome,Squidwards suicide, Jeff, and the Russian sleep experiment. Thoroughly creeped out and hungry for more, I finally landed on this site, where the first story I read was psychosis. Awestruck, by how unbelievably good it was, I have been a daily visitor of this fantastic site ever since. I now hope to contribute with my own meager attempt soon.

    I am a member of the SkyArmy (YouTube) and he did a minecraft mod of creepy pasta. I decided to check out this =creepypasta= thing that he was talking about, so typed it in on Google.
    As I did, some suggestions came up:
    CreepyPasta
    CreepyPasta Jeff The KIller
    CreepyPasta Ben

    Now, my brothers name is Ben, so I thought ‘what the heck’ and clicked on it…

    Dear God why did I click on it. I stopped playing games for about 3 weeks and thought that I was going to get infected by Ben. Thanks CreepyPasta, you messed up my head FOREVER MORE.

    In one summer night me, my brothers and cousine sat on an big stone and was supposed to tell ghost stories to each other. My cousine told a story about a cottage in the woods, an haunted hotel room and one that I didn`t listen to (beacuse I got freaked out beacuse of the others). One year later, my cousine told me it was an creepy pasta. Some months later I decided that I would read the slenderman story, that I knew I could find on creepypasta.com. Then I found out it was more than one slenderman story, so I decided to read something else. Thats how I found out about creepy pasta (or more likely, started to “read” at this site).

    I first found creepy pasta from a Cry Reads on youtube and decided to check it out. Little did I know I would later become addicted to scaring myself into not sleeping many nights in a row.

    I think my first creepypasta was sonic.exe because I watched a video called “Haunted Gaming” on YouTube.

    I started reading creepypasta before I found this site. I think the first actual story I read was “Russian Sleep Experiment”. I was very impressed by that. Although now looking back to it I don’t think the “Russian Sleep Experiment” was that good. The second one was “Tulpa”. It was freaking amazing, I still can’t get it out of my head. Then I wanted to know what creepypasta actually was and I got a link to this site from knowyourmeme.com. The link was “Bad Dream”… Yeah… That one probably creeped me out more than anything in my entire life. I don’t think it’s a masterpiece, but for some reason that scared the hell out of me. Then I saw a thread about which creepypasta would you want as a movie and there was “Psychosis” in like every third comment. So I read it. Now it holds a special place in my heart (alongside with the “Tulpa”). Unfortunately, I can’t find anything on the same level as the aformentioned two, but I’m still glad that I found this site, even though there were times when I could not sleep till 3 A.M. because of it. XD

      The mod review made me think about them, and I decided to look at this “Creepypasta” website, I read about Jeff The Killer, and all the others, and then, before I knew it,it was 3:00 in the morning, and I had started reading the pastas at something like 12:00, and since then, I have been a Creepypasta lover.

    I found out cuz my cuzin Taylor LOVES and has a crush on, Jeff the Killer, she told me who he was on halloween night, so I decided to search him up. And because I was laying in bed, all lights off, Halloween night, 12 at night, all alone, reading Jeff the Killer. Totally freaked out, ALL night, I thought he was like a cartoon guy when she told me. So I found out about Creepypasta on Halloween night, and Jeff was my first story. Then Slender, then Smile, then BEN, then Jane, then Sally, then Jack. And now, I am, Mrs. Creepypasta.

    i read one about a zombie pandemic where the zombies can talk and think and beg you in plain english to let them take a bite out of you. the story was from the point of view of an infected person, who at the end tells the reader he plans to lure someone into his house and attack them. then some time after that i read the russian sleep experiment, which is probably the best pasta i’ve ever read.

    A friend of mine sent me a link to a stpry called Squidward’s Suicide. On the site that story was on, I noticed a link to a site. This site. After reading that story, I wanted to see more, so I clicked the link and became instantly hooked. It took a while for me to get up the nerve to try and write a creepypasta, but I did eventually. Never Again is the only one I ever wrote though. I enjoy reading horror more than I enjoy writing itm though both ammount to a very exciting experience.

    I’ve always loved to scare myself with a chilling story every once and a while, and I started to watch youtube videos, not to long ago, of a guy who read scary stories and posted his recording of them on youtube. His name is ChaoticMonki but some people refer to him as Cry. (God must have blessed his vocal cords or something because he reads amazingly)I started to hear about “Creepypasta” after that and thought it was quite a strange name. I soon looked it up and started to read a bunch of amazing stories. Now i’m hooked!

    I first discovered creepypasta when I read about Smile Dog on some other site. I was curious, so I looked it up and came across this site. I read about smile dog, went to the front page, and then read all of the creepy pastas ever posted here. I got hooked immediately.

    The first creepypasta i read actually was Ben, on the creepypasta.wiki page. I heard about it when my friends were all scared of Ben and i was like ” who is ben .___. ” so i looked it up and read the story, i enjoyed it and i kept reading on the wiki until i wondered if there was a creepypasta.com so i ended up here

    I found the creepypasts site after I had been watching PewdiePie and others play slender. The idea of such a horrible creature made me want to know more, so I looked up slenderman and found the wiki, which, in turn, led me here. Now I am a creepypasta addict. I like most of the creepypastas that i have read, but theres one that gets me every time and its still the slenderman one. The reason that it creeps me out is that I live near the woods and once and a while I hear footsteps near there…… Creepy… So yeah Creepypasta rules.. Watch out for Slendy!
