I have been reviewing creepypasta for while now and my first review of it came from watching some videos for "cupcakes". I hated both videos and I got my review style from doing those MLP fan made episodic reviews where I would review a fan made episode of my little pony. As far as I can tell I've done them all, but I'm going to keep looking.
The first real review of a creepypasta I did was for "luna game". I had a spare block in school, because, I think I had my exams finished or something else, no it was only two of my blocks and my LS block didn't have any exams or anything. I thought to myself, I kind of want to do another one, so I did "Jeff the killer" because I knew that if this ever picked up steam and I haven't reviewed that people would recommend it because it's like one of the biggest pastas I think it's as big as "BEN drowned" or "Squidward's suicide".
I fell in love with reading creepypasta after I read "bound to death" which was an awful pasta and I think that got me into reading more pasta, I also saw the now removed "tats top 22 non-gaming creepypastas" and that gave me new stories to read. Then I just started to roam around the wiki and that is my story. I stopped a bit after "1999" because I kept sleeping with the lights on and even still I read them casually. I also stopped because as I said before there are good pastas out there like "suicidemouse.avi", "ed, edd and eddy the lost episode", "cupcakes", "the theater", "candle cove" and previously mentioned ones like "Jeff the killer", and "Squidward's suicide", but the problem is I have to read bad pasta after bad pasta, like "tails doll curse", "red dwarf IX", "mortal kombat.exe", "3 stooges dead dunderheads" and the afore mentioned "bound to death" to get to the good stuff.
I did a quickie for the 3 stooges pasta, because I didn't think I had enough time to write a full review, but I think I regret making quickies, now I'll only do them when I don't think I can express my thoughts on a pasta than I could in about a minute.
I think creepypastas are more than just spooky ghost stories, I think they can give you inspiration, I have done a few lists on Jeff the killer fan art and another on creepypasta fan art. Also there is an amazing story by an amazing writer, the story is called "betrayal by blood" and maybe when it's over, I'll review it. I really like some of these stories, and I like some of these writers and I like a lot of these characters. I love creepypasta.
Now if you want to read one, but feel like they are to scary, don't worry. I have read a bunch of them and I can safely say only one really scared me, and that's stretching it as I haven't actually finished it. I don't think a bunch of pastas are that scary, in fact some of them can be pretty silly when you think about it.
I think creepypastas are more of the modern myths than comic books and modern folk lore are. These are creatures, beings, things that we believe might exist, hell some of these actually were/are real, like "MARIO", or some of them are just good stories like "BEN drowned" or "Jeff the killer" or "pokemon strangled red", am I saying everybody should read creepypasta? well it depends are you willing to look behind you when you're alone in the woods? or do you run from the sight of anything that could injure you? are you willing to have a decent scare every now and again? or do you think Tim Burton movies are enough scary things for a decade? I recommend these stories to anybody that is ready to read them and I encourage those people to explore, find a new pasta that you normally wouldn't read, I have read about two or three theory pastas even though I love lost episode and video game pastas. Overall I say go on and enjoy.
