CreepypastaFor those of you who don't know what creepypasta is, its basically a scary story of some sort.
My opinion on creepypasta itself: The idea of creepypasta doesn't seem so bad. I mean who doesn't like a good old ghost story? Creepypasta really has captured some of that "scary story" vibe throughout its life span. I wouldn't say that all the stories are good. Some are actually run chills down your spine and make you paranoid for the rest of the night like 1999 or The Expressionless. Some have lost their meaning completely like Jeff the Killer and Ben Drowned, but I'll get into those later when i get to my opinion on the fandom. I think with creepypasta people really have let their creativity get to the best of their abilities to create all these different stories that have become so popular. Creepypasta let alone is a pretty good concept.
My opinion on the creepypasta fandom: Now when you hear that creepypasta is just a community of scary stories, you think "what could go wrong?". The internet and pubescent/teenage girls. That's what can go wrong. The creepypasta fandom is out of control. When you read a story about a murderous teenage boy who cuts his eyelids off and murders his entire family you would never expect a group of teenage girls to have a crush on him. These stories have gotten extremely mainstream with girls who ship themselves with these characters that the stories are no longer scary. They have turned a mad murder into their boyfriend overnight. The problem with this is it just doesn't seem right. You know that what your doing isn't right if you'll be over in less then ten years. The idea of girls wanting to bang these fictional murderers doesn't seem right written on paper either. I just feel like the whole creepypasta community has been stripped of it's meaning completely. So what's my opinion on the creepypasta fandom? I hate it. It's on the list of top ten cringiest fandoms for me. I cannot look at the word 'creepypasta' and take it seriously. That's how bad it has gotten. I don't even want to talk about it anymore.
My overall rate on creepypasta: 4.5/10
