    Don't forget to check out Part 1.

    1. Neon by SoDaft Potato

    When I was a young kid, I went through a phase where I had a special fascination with neon lights, and even wanted to decorate my room with them at one point. This story incorporates the beauty and intricacy of neon sign work for a fascinating tale.

    2. Ball-Pit by Icydice

    Similar in some ways to Neon, this story reveals how there may be more to worry about from ball pits at McDonalds than just catching pink-eye.

    3. Happy Sun Daycare by Chelsea Adams

    This story was posted in 2014 but has the feel of an older classic creepypasta. Had it been written earlier I have a feeling it would be better known as a semi-viral creepypasta. It's investigative narration approach and historical intrigue …

    I have news that is bound to frustrate and confuse many. If you haven't already heard, Fandom is planning to phase out wikis within the next couple years and replace them with "communities."

    Under the overhaul, all community and content pages will be combined into one system, and the new emphasis wil…

    I read and edit a lot of stories on this wiki. However, I'm not one to leave feedback in the comments very often. I don't do scores, and I have trouble coming up with unique feedback that isn't just some variation of "I really liked how you did that thing that you did."

    I also haven't taken up the popular practice of having a list of favorite stories on my user page. I haven't bothered because I don't want to go through the hassle of deciding if I should rank them, whether a certain story is "really good enough for my favorites list", etc.

    So, I've come up with this instead. Inspired by EtherBot's Random Writer's Showcase series, I plan to make a blog post listing ten stories from this wiki that I liked from time to time. These aren't necess…

    In addition to reading and listening to creepypasta, I also sometimes like looking for videos that aren't outright creepy but satisfy the same sort of intrigue, such as urbex videos.

    Here are a couple such videos I thought this community might be interested in, both of which show what happens when people put balloons in the sky during super cells.
