Welcome to the Creepypasta Wiki! Proudly hosting 12,344 of your worst nightmares since 2010.
Please be sure to thoroughly read the wiki rules and our quality standards before you begin posting stories. Also, the Writers' Workshop is an excellent place to get feedback and advice on your story before posting it to the main site.
The night is an Ocean in which every star in the Universe is but an island. The Ocean’s waves lap over the Earth on a 24-hour cycle; its tides roll in and roll out at a rate of once per year. And the Ocean carries things in its depths; things you would not believe.
Every so often, something meant for deeper waters finds itself beached here. We mistake them for unhappy dreams because we cannot process their reality. Usually, they suffocate in daylight, thrashing in their death-throes and expiring in a paroxysm of terror. That, at least, we can feel.

The Halloween category is for stories about that spookiest time of year and includes 80 stories. There are many aspects of Halloween that these stories cover, including costumes, trick-or-treating, haunted houses, and Halloween rituals.

As with many creepypasta subgenres, nostalgia is a common theme. These stories often take the kid-friendly trappings of Halloween and twist them into something darker.
This wiki is always looking for new stories, however there are some things to keep in mind when contributing. Be sure to read the Rules and our Quality Standards before posting a story. Also, keep in mind that there are some Blacklisted Subjects for stories.
For new wiki writers, we recommend checking out the Writers' Workshop board. There, you can get feedback on story drafts.
Not ready to submit stories? That's fine, you can still contribute to the wiki in several other ways. You can help writers on the wiki by leaving feedback on Workshop drafts or on published stories. You can also review new stories for grammatical and spelling errors.
