I don't understand something I find important. Why is it that I don't feel frightened when writing or reading creepypastas, but I don't like walking up the basement stairs unless I've either got one of the knives or I'm walking backwards. Also, is creepypasta considered a fandom? I mean, if there's a TV/book series that consisted of multiple stories based in the same dimension/world and has a lot of fans, then the fan fictions and fan art would be considered part of the fandom, right?
