      I assume that the mother had given her son to NASA for testing or something, and received a paycheck in turn.

        I think i get the NASA thing. One website said that NASA was doing an experiment with broadcasting and air waves, and that they broadcasted during the time Candle Cove played. Maybe NASA was sending a check to the mother for letting the child watch the broadcasting that nasa sent out. idk, im kinda guessing. o_o

    Yup, I have no idea what the NASA reference is. I even went on wiki and looked up the September – December 1971. Didn’t see any references to NASA there.

    Besides that, this was a really good tie-in pasta to Candle Cove.

    Mechanically, the opening paragraph flowed pretty awkwardly, and there was a line, “[the nurse] rushed and and,” instead of “in and,” but otherwise it was really well put together. You did quite well, creepypasta author.

    Hes trying to say His mother took part in a Experiment From NASA . One That had to do with the show, maybe Only the kids whose parents wanted them to take part in this experiment was lured by the show which was a distraction . Well something like that if you catch my drift . .

    I can explain the nasa thing in the 1970s apparently nasa scientists were doing research with radiowaves and how they effected people they found out that in children aged 2-6 their undeveloped brains could interperet low signal radiowaves and one of their experiments was with candle cove and the broadcasting tower in ironton Ohio. keep in mind candle cove was made by mainly graduating colledge students in the fields of neuroscience and engineering.they were chosen by nasa to create the puppets and record the shows and nasa broadcasted a low frequency signal from ironton to places near there. It was such a low frequency that adults with fully developed brains could only see static but children could see the show.It was supposed to be made to increase education and make radio waves undetectable by the soviets (remember it was the cold war) but soon after they completed their final test (screaming episode) it was aborted and almost all files on it were burned that’s why threre is so little info on it the unethical studies that they did caused dimensia paranoia coma other mental issues and even death from watching candle cove

      True story (please give me a straight answer. I’ve been doubting the fakeness of the Candle Cove-story an awfully lot, recently =P)?

        Candle cove isn’t real, it is a fictional story created by Kris Straub who manages as well as writes for the horror fiction site, Ichor Falls. The above paragraph regarding NASA experiments, etc, may sound convincing, but a little internet research will unearth the fact that this whole candle cove story is completely made up.

    I think the NASA reference is that they brainwashed them, and the parents were paid for their children to be used.

      Reddit /nosleep/ rules should apply here. The creepiness about the stories is not knowing whether they’re real or not. Disputing them is like a buzz kill.

    Like many, I’m not much of a fan of the NASA addition, even if you’re going to go with the govt. theory, I would think something more black box, like MK-ULTRA or Project TALENT would be the culprit. Other than that I enjoyed this addition to the candle cove file.

    Candle Cove has got to be the best Creepypasta out there and I have to say this is almost as good as the original story now that I have more understanding of it thanks to Cameron. An amazing sequel to an already amazing work of art.

    i kind of agree with this but i think they paid the mom to allow them to test the show on the kid then when she went into a coma they probably had to pay her again for the damages

    Not really crazy about the Candle Cove spinoff stories. Part of what made the original scary was the mystique about it. The zoned out faces of children watching a show of monstrosities hidden by a veil of static while parents sit idly by both oblivious and helpless to the horrors their kids are facing. But now there’s actors and set designers and NASA. IMO it’s robbing the original of its aura of mystery. I’d like to read one that both honors the original AND continues the story.

    I’m gonna have to say I rather believe Cameron knows what Candle Cove is and is not. To his detractors – how much info have you found about NASA’s tests, online or otherwise? Less than you can find about Candle Cove. So, does he know something more than you do because he knows someone or another who was involved with the tests? Something, real or not, to add to the CC canon? There are a lot of conspiracy theories about plenty of things in our past. Using it to explain what’s going on in another story doesn’t mean you don’t know what’s going on in the other story. It just means it’s there to help those who aren’t sure what the story is talking about when it refers to a little known conspiracy theory.

    Or maybe it’s flame bait and some people have torches that are too quick and easy to light up.
