I've only discovered the phenomenon of Creepypasta over the past week, and I couldn't be happier. Sure, I've read and/or heard about some of the stories before. I mean, who hasn't heard of Slenderman? But all this? This is awesome! I love spooky stories, especially the subtle type with open endings. This probably has something to do with my love of Asian horror movies as well. I love slow, building suspense, and I love having something left to wonder and ponder over when the story's done. I also love a good urban legend. Or a rural one. Spooky folktales with modern updates are some of my favourite stories.

This site is also inspiring me like all hell! Usually writing doesn't come easily to me, but I'm finding spooky stories in my head that need to be free. No doubt I'll be contributing some pasta of my own to this deliciously dark buffet soon! Thanks, everybody, for both the stories and the inspiration. Now I just need to decide whether I want to write about grave robbing first, or destructive clairvoyant twins, or maybe a haunted shipwreck!

Yay for creepypasta, and all you sick freaks writing it!
