50 - "Sailor Moon Lost Episode"

They may not be pretty soldiers, but David, Kaela, Abysmii and Seid are here fight evil by moonlight and talk about Sailor Moon while reading yet another attempt at a “lost episode” story. This Wattpad wonder seems to have been written by a kid, so the gang’s not expecting anything glorious by a long shot. But will they have fun anyway?

Cleric of Madness, the erstwhile creator of the Creepypasta Wiki, rises again to help David and Kaela navigate a pair of bite-sized stories about the walking dead.

-All stories must have titles

-Send preferably as a .doc or .pdf, but can be put in the body of the email

-Please only add your name in the subject area of the email. Do not put your name anywhere in the story, whether it is in an attachment or in the body of an email.

Writing Rules/Guidelines

-It has to be set in the parks. It can be about a ride or experience, or it could just take place within the context of the parks. It should have its main incident within a Disney park or resort property.

-Avoid writing only about Marvel, Fox, or Star Wars (The idea behind a Disney Creepypasta is the juxtaposition between a corporation, normally seen as “magical” and “innocent”, and unexpected terror. Focusing on the above franchises alone defeats the purpose).

-Can be as realistic or as supernatural as you like

-We’re looking for engaging stories, that capture that creepiness factor about Disney that people often forget. The story should easily interweave the family-friendly reputation of Disney with horror

-Judging criteria might favor stories that have a sense of grounding and detail, but that's based on understanding the setting and tone.

44 - Short and Shivery 28

David’s never really been a cat person but is alright being cat-adjacent, while Kaela had a cat growing up and likes them pretty well. That’s important because this episode, guests Eli and Kylie from Animal Fact Files are bringing some feline frights to peruse. Will these two tales make the groups whiskers stand on end, or are these cats better left in the bag?

41 - "The Forest of a Thousand Legs"

David and Prasokour don their protective gear and trudge into a Nosleep story without a NoSleep title, which is already a good sign. Will this anomalous arachnid account manage to snare the hosts in its narrative web, or will it be a the prose equivilant of a can of bug spray?

39 - Short and Shivery 27

It didn’t start out as a Short and Shivery, but David, Kaela, Allen and Abysmii found the first story offered a little too short (but at least a little shivery) and decided to, at last minute, tack on another one. What follows is a pair of stories with very different tones and very different reactions from the panel of readers.
