I hope that you guys don’t mind this, but since things are slower over here for the time being (read this post for details), I thought that the Crappypasta community might be willing to help out one of your own.
One of our readers, Michael, is working on a project and asked me if he could direct some interview questions my way, but unfortunately I don’t feel like I have the time/energy to properly respond to them at this point. I suggested that he let me post the questions here, since they’re general questions that I felt you guys could tackle in my stead. I’m posting it here rather than the main site, both to avoid sticky-post hell over there (there’s three currently and I feel like they’re starting to take over) and because the people who frequent Crappypasta seem to have strong opinions on the Creepypasta genre.
So if you’re bored and feel like helping a guy out with a student project, the questions are below! You can simply post your answers in the comments.
1a) Do you like to be scared?
1b) If so, and if you are aware of it, why?
2a) What is your favorite ‘traditional’ medium to experience horror (film, novel, painting, etc)?
2b) Within that medium, what is your favorite horror piece/text/work?
2c) What is your favorite ‘non-traditional’ horror piece/text/work (creepypasta, flash animation, internet video/video series, chain letter, etc)?
3) Please indicate which, if any, of the following you consider ‘a myth’.
(If you do not recognize a name, please do not research it before answering, simply leave the space blank)
Freddy Krueger _____ Jason Voorhees _____ Slenderman _____ God_____
Dracula_____ The Mothman _____ Jeff the Killer_____ Number Stations ____
The Lavender Town Noise _____ Bloody Mary _____ Smile.jpeg _____
Santa Claus _____ Big Foot _____ Frankenstein’s Monster_____
Jack the Ripper ____ Leatherface _____ Cthulhu _____
3b) Have you ever dreaded encountering any of the above, and if so, which ones?
4) What quality do you feel creepypasta has that sets it apart from other forms of horror story?
Thanks in advance to anyone who replies!Add this crappypasta to your list of favorites!
