Ahhhhh...here we go...
I'm gonna do my best NOT to rant...but I do think this is an important (well, as important as short horror stories on the internet are) issue for the Creepypasta "community."
I'm very...very...tired of this trope. Ya ready? Mm'k, here goes:
"I'm a (insert job title) at (insert spooky location), and (vague creepy description)"
Why is every Creepypasta title the exact same? I don't know if it's the authors (maybe Reddit), or the narrators or whatever...but I swear they're allllll the same.
"I'm a guard stationed at a secret government prison"
"I work as a groundskeeper at (redacted)"
"I'm a firefighter and what I found..."
"I was hired by Disney..."
"I'm an FBI agent and this case will haunt me..."
And being a YouTuber I get it...gotta be on the grind, get those views pumpin'...but it's such a tired trope that it doesn't stick out anymore.
Sorry to rant...but does anyone else feel my pain?
Let's change "THE SHINING" to:
"I was hired as the caretaker of a haunted hotel in the Rockies"
Thanks for coming to my TED talk.
