What is a Creepypasta/Pokepasta?
Creepypasta, by definition, is a short horror story originating from the internet that has been shared/re-posted at least 100 times.
Of course, as the purpose of this group is to get horror stories enough limelight so they BECOME Creepypasta, your work does NOT need to meet the second part of the criteria to be featured in this folder. Criteria it DOES need to meet:
1. Originality; your work CANNOT contain famous Creepypasta characters, any work that does is considered fanfiction (Plus, it is highly recommended that you give characters identity of their own, instead of relaying on other's popularity) and only the ACTUAL Creepypastas are allowed in this folder; any reference sheets, artwork etc are to go in Fanart-Creepypasta; even if you are the creator!
2. Origin; Creepypastas MUST originate from the internet or else they are simply horror stories! Whether or not you luck out and get them in a book later does not effect it's Creepypasta status.
Pokepasta is a type of Creepypasta set in/around Pokemon and mostly follows the same rules! Only the origin part is redundant, origin is void in this case due to Copyright laws and the fact it cannot originate from anywhere BUT the internet due to them. (Anything Pokemon cannot be printed, distributed, etc, without permission of the copyright holders, I doubt they'd allow anything that may scare off children or their parents from the series)
A quick explanation of our folders, please put your art into the right place!
