I'm very excited about joining this community. I've been looking for something new and interesting to do in my spare time. I'm a bit of a horror junky. Lately I've been hard pressed to find anything that genuinely scared me or gave me "the willies." I'm so happy to have come across quite a few stories on here that made me keep my light on for a little while before attempting to fall asleep. I live a fairly mundane life. Literally nothing interesting to tell you about there. I use horror and creepypasta as a means to break up the monotony. I was linked to an article here via Tumblr, and now I am hooked. I started at the top of the Top Rated list and have steadily worked my way down, following links within links within links. SCP-682 took me an entire day…oof.
Besides being creeptastic, I really appreciate the (maybe not friendly) mature environment of the site. It's hard putting anything on the internet without being incessantly ridiculed with no constructiveness. Though this community is a bit intimidating, I don't have that same sense of…dread. (No pun intended?)
I have no plans to write my own story for awhile. I'm mostly swept up in others creativity right now. Though I am feeling inspired to develop my own ideas. Maybe someday.
Like I said, I am substantially hooked. Right now, at work, I'm using this site as a reward system for completed tasks. One SCP profile per task. I wish I had thought to keep track of the stories I have read…It's got to be in the few hundreds by now.
Anyway! Hello all! I hope you are all having a fantastic day! Back to work for me.
