I love creepy pastas. And chances are that if you are reading this so do you. I’ve been into them for about a year now and like most the community enjoy the sudden jolt a well-cooked piece of pasta can provide. The way a perception can be built up in a mere couple of sentences, then be violently smashed down. I’ve appreciated all the classics, from “Noend House” and “Candle Cove”, to the secrets of the Holder series.

I heard about a group of guys recently that kept talking about wanting to take their pasta to the “next level”. The kind of story that changes you as a person, gives you a new outlook on life. They posted on a forum, and the impression I got from lurking at the time was that they were building the story fragment by fragment. A mish-mash of text that was being amalgamated as much in the public eye as it was via personal message.

I do know that it was eventually finished, and that a grand unveiling was planned at midnight on the forum for atmospheric effect. This caused some minor grumbling as they all lived in different time zones, but GMT was eventually agreed upon. Many waited with bated breath for this alleged “perfect” pasta that had grown from the minds of many, yet were disappointed when there was no sign of activity from any of the original creative group.

A couple of days later, one of them signed onto the message board and left a brief message

Slendermanrulez89: uj3drjjde498bli404nd8540j

You know exactly what we were thinking at that point? Publicity stunt. That’s what we continued to say to ourselves over the coming weeks as more and more messages started to pile up from all the authors. Most of them were nonsensical, a couple downright disturbing.

Creepyboi97: dazzlingdazzlingdazzlingdazzlingdazzlingdazzlingdazzlingdazzlingdazz

Azraelsblade: ttttttttttttttoooooooooooooooooooommmmmmmmuuuuuccccccccccchhh

TheGothfather: it toook alitle whyl but i got em oiut………………they tast lik jelli.

At this point we started to get a little worried. Weeks had passed since the supposed release date, and there was no sign other than these repeated postings of the forum, so we started to investigate further. Initial findings showed that the group had shared the story among themselves prior to the release, a couple of them bragging of the fact on various other forums. More details came to light showing that one of them, “RATMfanatic”, had been the final editor stitching all the text together, then sending it out to all of them. Research of his facebook showed one status not long after.

“I can’t focus anymore. my mind keeps being drawn back to it. I can see where I stand and it terrifies me.”

All of the others showed had followed suit, and slowly but surely described a gradual descent into depression, mania and ramblings of “finally understanding”. At this point all sorts of theories were flying around, all fixated on this story. We scoured the news reports and found that over the course of time we were able to tie missing persons reports up to all the forum members from throughout the world. Accounts were investigated showed that the homes they had left behind had been trashed. Their computers had all be destroyed, as if there had been some shared belief that burning or smashing the source of their fear would somehow alleviate it. There was no mention of the pasta, but to be honest we wouldn’t have expected that. To this day we don’t know where they are.

And you would believe that would be where the story would end, were it not for one final postscript. A message was found:

Voltronator: yeah, i just got it in my inbox, but I haven’t read it yet.. Don’t tell anyone, but I’m gonna fire a couple of copies to some friends. They’ve been begging me for this, and I do owe them one from way back. They are gonna be stoked.

No-one knows who he was referring to, and nothing has be heard of since. Who knows, maybe it’s still out there. Floating on some dead site that gets like a hit a year. No-one knows the title, so your guess is as good as mine. The only thing I will say you is be careful out there. Next time you stumble across some pasta you’ve never tried before…  just…  I don’t know, I mean how would you even know until it’s too late?

    This, with all of it’s never-ending creepypasta references (which I hate anyways), was by no means “good.”

    But these usernames you made up:
    Slendermanrulez89
    Creepyboi97
    Azraelsblade
    TheGothfather
    RATMfanatic
    Voltronator

    give me a powerful urge to go find your computer and destroy the keyboard input, because I don’t think the world should allow you to type things anymore.

    Really? Just…really? How did this NOT be posted on Crappypasta? There were so many typos, I alomost didn’t finish this. Did you even proof read this? Or read it at all? “I’ve been into them for about a year now and like most the community enjoy the sudden jolt a well-cooked piece of pasta can provide.” There are two or three typos just in this. SERIOUSLY! WHAT THE HECK? 3/10. waste of my time. Good theory though.

      It would probably be good to proof read your own comment before having a go at someone for their typos.

      While I agree with you overall, perhaps you could point out the specific ‘typos’ you refer to, as I only see one in that sentence.

    interesting premise, but the ending let it down, also what does ‘prime’ have to do with it ?

    I thought it was alright, if somewhat pythonesque

    It was alright, but could someone explain the title to me? What does Prime have to do with the concept?

    I think this is a stupid creepypasta. It should have been posted on Crappypasta. By no means is this an acceptable pasta. It’s not really that scary, due to the fact that the typos and horrible grammar pulled me out of the story. I couldn’t even get past the first few paragraphs. Why would you post this story on here? I mean, its not good and the usernames the person came up with aren’t that good either. 0/10. I don’t like it, and the reference to creepypastas in it, i just cant even. :\

    How did you do those quote things? They were the only thing that made me read this pasta.

    Honestly I don’t know why I would ever need to use them considering I never plan on writing one of these forum-post pastas, but it would be good to know.

    Not much more to offer than an eerie vibe.

    I like the idea but there are so many stories out there about people going mad becuase of something they’ve read or seen. Also, I did notice a lot of typing errors which makes me think you may have written it in a rush and not bothered to proof read it. If you ever post another pasta, try to make it more original and check there are no mistakes.

    Hey there, cheers for the feedback.

    I guess I struck out on this one. The idea seemed good in my head, but not so much once written.

    The name Prime was meant to be like a prime number, as in a prime pasta.

    why is it that every story that involves someone writing the ultimate creepy pasta ends up with the author dying or killing himself or disappearing or getting so close to the truth that evil devours him – if not externally, then internally-? are scary stories really meant to be so serious that they have the capability to kill their creators and readers upon reaching maximum opacity? if so, then wouldn’t most of the loyal readers on scary story sites end up dead? or maybe authors aren’t trying hard enough. Or maybe the ones who are trying have already been voided. 4am ramblings… <3
