    I just started reading it. Great for bus rides because the stories are short. They're like campfire stories. Thought I'd share one.

    Yeah, there's a cheese factor in there, but we're adults, so there isn't much chance of being scared. You'd have to really lend yourself to it and visualize. Some of them are creepy though. That's when it works. Not scary, but some of them just really creep you out.

    I'll check the tulpa one soon.

    /r/creepypasta has a thread about the best unpopular ones. Not bad. I just read noend house.

    I want to write some now. Probably base them on psychological disorders and quirky things that everyone does but thinks they're the only one.

    all the time. i believe CreepyPasta also has a Youtube channel and they sometimes narrate the story.


    remember Scary Stories to Tell in The Dark? they're supposedly making a movie about it. with the right execution, it should be real dope.

    Yea I like creepy pasta. Squidwards Suicide introduced me to it. I love the "When you see it, you'll shit bricks" pictures as well.

    Right on, yeah, looks like a lot of people are narrating on youtube. Someone even acted out NoEnd-House, not that well though.

    I'll add the scary stories movie to my watchlist, too. Thanks.

    Hah, there's a full on video with footage from the show on youtube.

    Edit: Sorry, no actual footage, but the visual helped. Not a bad one.

    Tulpa was awesome! Makes me wonder how powerful visualizing really can be. Doubt it could manifest a physical being, especially one that wants to murder, but why not create a righteous being? I've read a bit about brain plasticity, and experiments where people who pretend to practise piano improve almost as much as those who actually practise, so maybe I could go all psychonaut and see how far I could take it. Create a highly motivational tulpa. Or something. If I have the strength of focus to switch on a hallucination, I'd imagine I'd be able to control it. As long as I remain scientifically detached, there should be no fear either, only fascination.

    yeah it's interesting.

    there's a subreddit for people who practice such things. i enjoyed the story but found most of that stuff hard to take seriously, so i only went there once.

    Yeah, found it hard too. So I subscribed and never went back. Doesn't mean I'm against it though, just cautious. Plus I need to overcome the weirdness of it.

    I've always liked creepy/spooky stories. Reminds me of the 'Tales For The Midnight Hour' series of books. Each holds several short stories, always read them as a youngster.

    I'm just starting. I prefer reading horror to watching. I don't like seeing the gore.
