Let me just drag my shit-covered boots across your nice clean talk page... there we go.

Anyway, here ya go -

Hey Shadowswimmer! I was wondering if you'd contribute a few stories to my wiki, the Spacepasta wiki: I haven't really thought much of stories, and I have no clue how to manage it, so I'd love your help with starting it up. It's meant to be a SCI-FI/fantasy similar to the creepy pasta wiki. ~ signed, yours truly, DimensionalProffesional

Dreams of Inheritance

Hey Buddy, I hope you enjoy this rendition. take care KillaHawke1 (talk) 01:29, August 1, 2016 (UTC)

LOL it is so hard maintaining a secret identity these days. Anyways, I am very pleased you enjoyed it. I always try to do something a little different or unique, whether add a bit of motion or I composed and created all the music for this story. I normally don't do that anymore, but this was short enough and I really like how it added tension and a dreamy feeling at the endKillaHawke1 (talk) 04:58, August 1, 2016 (UTC)


Thank you, I've been a fm of your stuff for a while (still need to catch up on things around the Wicker house) and I think you'll be a great help, so thank you. Signed ~ DimensionalProfessional P.S. If anything seems off its cause I was worried about managing the whole thing and worried if it'd turn into anything so I was going to make it into a CreepyPasta.

The Lonely Stars are not so lonely anymore

Hey, how's it going? I hope you enjoy my rendition of The Lonely Stars

RE: Spinoff

Hey Shadowswimmer. I'll look into your appeal this weekend. MrDupin (talk) 11:37, November 4, 2016 (UTC)

Re: JtK

Yeah, I will give it a read tomorrow. Once I read it I'll talk to Dupin and the others and see what is said. Have a good one, friend.

Jay Ten (talk) 23:49, November 5, 2016 (UTC)

I just finished your JtK story. Here are a couple issues:
Now, let’s wake sleeping beauty and get some intimidation going. (I really found this line unnatural. Specifically "get some intimidation going.")
bearing his teeth. (should be "baring")
Other than those, I didn't see many problems. It was very difficult for me to read because of my hatred for the source material, or more accurately, my hatred of the popularity of the source material (yours is the only rewrite I have read). That being said, I did my best and feel that you did an incredible job. You managed to take terrible source material into an interesting direction while also staying surprisingly true to the original. You somehow made the whole thing seem not quite so ridiculous. I am willing to accept the story onto the wiki, but that's about all I can say. I will be passing on my view to the others and letting them discuss it. Hope all is well.
Jay Ten (talk) 16:07, November 6, 2016 (UTC)

Spinoff Appeal

Hi Shadow. I talked with the other admins and I'm afraid we can't allow the story on the wiki. The only reason a JtK story is on the wiki is the contest. The nature of the contest was very clear and we would not be fair to the rest of the contestants if we let your story on, updated or not.

I'm sorry and I hope you understand. MrDupin (talk) 19:30, November 7, 2016 (UTC)

I'm sorry that this turned out the way it did. It is mostly my fault for not disclosing all the information. We are currently changing a lot around the wiki and one of the changes is the removal of the Spinoff Appeal. As you correctly pointed out no story has been accepted through that Appeal for a very long time. And really, we don't want spinoffs of the "classics" on the site and it's unfortunate that the Appeal stayed on for that long. We don't want to encourage spinoffs anymore, and we will not run a similar contest to the JtK one.
Again, I apologise for all this. You have an incredible collection of stories, that I hope you will expand with more great work. MrDupin (talk) 20:51, November 7, 2016 (UTC)


I just wanted to personally apologize. Hopefully they will reconsider. Your story is without question good enough to get past the spinoff appeal if it didn't have the misfortune of having the name "Jeff" in the title. If you changed the names and the catch phrases, there would be no question of whether the story was fit for the site. I would argue that it's even more impressive because it is a Jeff story. As you know, I absolutely loathe the original story and didn't even support the contest to begin with, but all that is irrelevant to my decision, as it should be.

Doing away with the spinoff appeal isn't going to make this situation any better because your story was submitted to it before it was removed and should be considered on the same grounds as every story that was posted there before. I understand that the contest was held and it would've been unfair to allow other Jeff stories on the site at that time, but Banning's story has enjoyed a year of being the sole JtK story on the site. I think the fact that it wasn't specified that we will no longer be accepting Jeff stories even through spinoff appeal is enough reason for your story to at least be considered. Again, I'm sorry about this and hope you realize that it's not anything personal with you, but likely just opposition to anything Jeff related (which I can understand, just not in this instance). Sorry I don't have any more information; I'm kinda out of the loop with the rest of the admins. I'm not trying to make matters worse, but I just wanted you to know that I think you're right to question this situation, regardless of what happens. Have a good one.

Jay Ten (talk) 00:44, November 8, 2016 (UTC)

Yeah, I'm reading the story right now and I must say that it's WAY better than I thought it would be. A lot better than Banning's rewrite, in my opinion. I would personally have no problem with it being on the site. Hopefully I can work something out with the other admins. LOLSKELETONS (talk) 00:52, November 8, 2016 (UTC)
I'm afraid I'm going to have to retract my support after seeing your messages on Dupin's and Cleric's talk pages (admittedly if I had read this message beforehand I wouldn't have even bothered). I still stand by my opinion that your story meets QS, but your attitude about this whole thing is very poor. Next time you try to get a story accepted onto this site for whatever reason try to leave your ego at the door. LOLSKELETONS (talk) 07:05, November 8, 2016 (UTC)

JtK Rewrite Opinion

It's well written.  That much must be said.  However.  It's shackled by being a rewrite of the original and honestly, I feel suffers from that.  It's hindered by having to be a large percentage of its parent in places and I don't think that keeping a lot of the trappings of the original can ever favor any rewrite.  It's not bad, but it's still basically grand wizard-level fanfiction, which is an opinion I hold of any JtK pieces.

Also, we had a contest.  We had a winner.  To add entries from that contest, rewritten or not, still feels like a slap in the face to that contest's winner, no matter how tiny of a slap it is.

Furthermore, your attitude in this matter is rapidly deteriorating the longer the discussion goes on. I was personally insulted (as I always am by this weird perspective people have of me as this iron-fist dictator) when you said if it was me an I said "STFU or get banned" you would listen. I'd never sink to such a level. Personally, I think I conduct myself as neutrally as I can in all matters, and it hurts when people insinuate that I have such wild tendencies like that. You also seem to be attacking MrDupin directly.

We as an admin team are looking into how a lot of things around here work as you may or may not have noticed by the revamps of the color scheme, wordmark, front page, and other like changes. Rest assured the site rules are up very soon for a reexamination and so are both Spinoff and Deletion appeals.

ClericofMadness (talk) 05:56, November 8, 2016 (UTC)

I also want to add to Cleric's message that accepting your appeal is not fair to the rest of the contestants too. They also wrote stories that maybe pass the QS. Why accept your entry and decline theirs? Because you are active and thought of appealing? Hardly fair. It's especially unfair to those who ranked above you in the contest. If we accept yours we have to accept theirs. Then others will want their story on and before you know it the floodgates will be open again.
I'm sorry but you have to move on. MrDupin (talk) 06:13, November 8, 2016 (UTC)

JtK Rewrite, con't

>Cleric, I'm not trying to insult you, Dupin, or anyone else.

Two paragraphs later

>You say you aren't a dictator. What am I supposed to think based on my current circumstances?

So, I don't want to insult you, but, lemme go ahead and insult you because you had...something negative to say about my story. 

I don't think that's how that works, yo.  As I said, you are growing more combative the longer this discussion continues.  ClericofMadness (talk) 06:37, November 8, 2016 (UTC)

Choo Choo

Railroaded?  No.  We are actively discussing in our cozy little admin discord right now this matter amongst ourselves.  Rest assured we have our top men on this.  Top.  Men. ClericofMadness (talk) 06:44, November 8, 2016 (UTC)

Soul-Train-Award-2014 ClericofMadness (talk) 07:05, November 8, 2016 (UTC)

Sadly, I too have a job that eats far too much of my free time. I almost never get to spend anywhere near as much time as I want to on here, what with spending 9+ hours/day in a restaurant. G'night! ClericofMadness (talk) 07:19, November 8, 2016 (UTC)

JtK 2 Cents Edition

Hey, I might as well, as the header states, add my 2 cents into the situation. I'm familiar with the original JtF story and I have read yours tonight during this huge debate on admin talk pages. I didn't hear about the contest because I wasn't around, hence me reading it tonight. It's a good story, yes. Does it meet quality standards, yes. Great, cool, but that still leaves the other contestants that also had good stories, maybe worse or better than yours. If we accepted your story, maybe another contestant would show up tomorrow and appeal their story. Then we would have to approve their story as well or else it's deemed unfair. We can't have a bias here and JtK stories in that contest were nothing more than spin-offs and you are very well aware that those are not welcome here. Yours is not different or special. No one told you to spend 30+ hours or whatever on that story. No one told you to do that, so using that as a line of defense in your appeal is downright silly. Throwing a tantrum on admin talk pages isn't going to get your story on the wiki. I've been a spectator of this entire situation and it seems you are just becoming more aggressive as this goes on.

My advice? Let it go and walk away. Write a better ORIGINAL story. Why be so proud of a rewrite of someone else's work? Write your own and be more proud of that. Long story short, I'm also denying your appeal. I mean no disrespect when writing this, I hope you understand. Psychobilly2422 (talk) 07:22, November 8, 2016 (UTC)


Just wanted to say I'm sorry for the clusterfuck the past day has been. There was a severe lack of communication on the admins' part. We will try to conduct ourselves more cohesively in the future and we will sort the whole Spinoff Appeal/rules thing out somehow. MrDupin (talk) 18:52, November 8, 2016 (UTC)

The Origins Stories

The narrations for your stories are on your profile but not on the stories. Adding them to your profile is a great idea, which I'll have to add my narration to my profile. Would you mind if I added your narrations to the story pages themselves? If you'd like, I could make my way through each story over time (like a week or a month) and add the best narration to each story, or add all the narrations for a particular story to the page (which is what I've seen other authors do). I'm thinking that adding the videos to the stories will bring people to the pages and to your profile and the wiki in general if people search for "creepy videos", "popular creepy stories" etc. on Google. Hopefully, anyway. And it's always nice to allow people to hear the narration if they come across your stories by navigating the main site (the articles) or via the random button. There's no way they would know there's a narration just by coming across the page as of now. Or would you please add the videos to the stories?

TenebrousTorrentTalk 00:58, December 3, 2016 (UTC)

No problem. I noticed you have a lot of narrations. Would you send word around about my stories and try to get them narrated? Caffeine, My First House, and Crescent Forest. If you have the time, would you review them as well? I would value your opinion and evaluations. Feel free to use my scoring guide, if you would like. The information for the ratings (Scare Factor, Transition, Composition, Description, and Conclusion) is on my profile: User:TenebrousTorrent.
TenebrousTorrentTalk 01:56, December 3, 2016 (UTC)


No worries. It's done. I removed the one from the top so it wasn't on there twice. Let me know if it needs anything else.

Jay Ten (talk) 02:26, December 3, 2016 (UTC)

Re: Narrations

Sure, I'll read those ones tomorrow. Thanks for the advice.

TenebrousTorrentTalk 21:24, December 5, 2016 (UTC)


Just in case you don't see my reply, would you look at my response to your comment on Redundant Red? I made a small adjustment to the story and am curious if you think it solves the problem without taking away from the ending. I tried to find some middle ground. Again, thanks for pointing out the issue.

Jay Ten (talk) 14:10, December 7, 2016 (UTC)

See, what ha'happened was... Yeah it's still on just pushed back because work kinda absorbed me... It got pretty dicey and I had to devote the last couple of months to being there more often than not. ClericofMadness (talk) 06:27, December 8, 2016 (UTC)

Who knows, the website can be wonky. I left a message on the design channel so they can investigate it, but I don't think they've been messing around with signature templates of anything like that. Hope it resolves itself. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 06:41, December 8, 2016 (UTC)

RE:Signature Issue

I don't really understand because the signature is a Wikia-wide feature. Not just wiki per wiki. Also, it shouldn't work in all places except one page or two on the wiki, that's not possible. Either signatures are completely broken or they aren't at all. Even if they were broken, that's not an issue on our part nor mine. That's a Fandom issue because they are in charge of main base code for all of Wikia. Psychobilly2422 (talk) 06:56, December 8, 2016 (UTC)

Signatures are working just fine for me.  I use the tildeses.  ClericofMadness (talk) 06:57, December 8, 2016 (UTC) It looks for all the world like you're simply not signing.  The system wouldn't eat text like that, especially not tildes. ClericofMadness (talk) 06:59, December 8, 2016 (UTC)
Hey dude, I found this too. When you use "nowiki", it ignores all Fandom based code. So of course your signature didn't show up. Psychobilly2422 (talk) 07:04, December 8, 2016 (UTC)
Kinda not how that works m'guy.  You should delete the nowiki text and try again and see if it is still broken.  Neither Empy nor I had issues signing the app page after you. ClericofMadness (talk) 07:10, December 8, 2016 (UTC)

Sig Issues Seems to just be you and your weird, haunted computer.  ClericofMadness (talk) 07:15, December 8, 2016 (UTC)

Yeah I noticed that you were wrapping the text in <nowiki> tags on Christian's app earlier. You're using source mode, right? LOLSKELETONS (talk) 07:47, December 8, 2016 (UTC)

Reading Tunda and Father's Love

I'm sorry about the delay, I've been on smaller tasks lately. I'm ready to read your stories now, and will post a review shortly.

TenebrousTorrentTalk 01:38, December 14, 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for the gripping story. Thanks for the commendation.
TenebrousTorrentTalk 05:23, December 14, 2016 (UTC)

Tunda Categorization

I was wondering about your story, Tunda. Would the [[Category:Cryptids]] would be a better way to describe the being in that story? The monster category would need to be removed per the genre listing rules. It reminds me of the wendigo stories, although it has been a long time since I've read them, but some of those stories are in the Cryptids category. Part of the description for a cryptid ( is:

"Seemingly paranormal or supernatural entities with some animal-like characteristics."

Continuing On

Hi, I just wanted to ask you. Have you ever given up on a creepypasta that you were writing? I have been a little bit out of the loop. I have written some mediocre creepypastas like Popular Also Kidnap Hotel which can be found on my profile or talk page, I believe.

I am sadly without Microsoft Word for now.

Problem Might Be Fixed

I think the problem might be gone but I cannot tell for certain. Things are crazy but at least I can leave feedback on pastas for now.

I am tired. Ciao for now!

Thanks for pointing out that youtube narration. I think I've actually come across it before. I'll admit that every so often I look around to see what others are doing with my stories. Creepy Thomas O. (talk) 03:17, January 30, 2017 (UTC)

Thank you for nominating 'The Children Found a Flower' for February's spotlighted pasta. It truly means a lot to me, and I'm glad you enjoyed it enough to think that it was worthy of further attention.

Thank you again, and I hope to have more work for you to enjoy in the future.



I'm sorry, but I read your most recent story and it really felt like it could have been improved by a lot more fleshing out and scenery/tension building. As a standalone idea, it feels a bit rushed and lacking a really effective plot progression/payoff. I would suggest taking it to the writer's workshop if you're looking to build on it, but as it stands, it doesn't feel like it meets the standards for our site. I can get more in-depth if you like in a little bit if you're interested. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 02:48, March 15, 2017 (UTC)

It's a growing fan club I understand. I know this because I'm the leader (recitation of the meeting's minutes get awkward sometimes.) Onto the story, it was alright, the big issues was the limitation of the wording and the ending. It really doesn't set up much precedence for why they're investigating the abandoned factory alone (effectively monster hunting something that's rumored to exist and why the factory is their conclusion for places that need to be investigated), why they don't have assistance/police involved, or what role the echoes play here. Is the monster mimicking him, is it just an echo? If it's the later why does the second phrase not create an echo. If it's the former, why did the monster decide to stop mimicking them at that moment and why is it doing that in the first place (at first I thought it was to lure them like a Skinwalker story, but it doesn't really fit into the narrative as the guy is already searching the place) I understand that the word limitation does restrict a lot of your possibilities here, but it also leashes the story in a lot of aspects.
Finally, the "I'm behind you/the protagonist" ending is a trope that can be effective (see The Man in the Snow urban legend) when utilized correctly, but the fact that the monster just appears behind them in this story without any real provocation feels like it could have been subbed out with anything and had the same result, especially since there isn't a lot of detail with the creature or its intention. I think if you decide to return to it, fleshing it out would really strengthen the plot. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 03:07, March 15, 2017 (UTC)

What's up Shadow,

I'm working my way through the queue that I have, which also includes the Circle and a few other things. But hopefully I can get to your story today. Do you want me to give you any edits that may be helpful, or just leave a comment. If I see anything that could be edited, I'll post it on your talk page and not in the comments, it doesn't seem right to post something like that where everyone can see it unless it's in the workshop.


JohnathanNash (talk) 15:53, September 24, 2017 (UTC)


While this was a long story, it never lost my interest. The entire story have a very strong Lovecratian vibe to it, and even the writing style seemed to fit it. You've done a great job at writing as someone in the early 1900's and coming into the present you didn't get stuck in the past.

The monsters Creed and the mother figure (which seemed like a nod to Shub-Niggurath) were great. There was enough information about Creed to keep him vague, but also give him a meaning and frightening enough to keep the reader wanting to see more of him. Also, while I normally don't like zombies, your zombie kids were great. Granted they may not be zombies, but they were pretty close to them.

As for complaints there is only a few. First, I would have liked there to be a stronger link between the two stories. There wasn't really any besides Creed and the totem. Which brings us to the second complaint, and that's the totem. It was a great idea, but it didn't go anywhere. When it was introduced at the end of the story, I thought that was how Creed was going to be destroyed, but it didn't really have any use or meaning. But besides that, everything else was great.

Well done on this one. It's taken me about five times to post this comment, and was unable to do so on the story, so I'm posting it here.

For many years, the staff here have operated under the assumption that alternative licenses were acceptable, and we intended to protect the rights of authors by allowing flexibility in how they licensed their stories. These deletions have not come about through any error at all on your part, we simply got it wrong.

As mentioned above, deletions will occur some time in the future (possibly in September). Right now, you have two options. If you wish for your pasta(s) to remain on Creepypasta Wiki, you will need to change the license on all of your pages to CC BY-SA. I have included a guide on how to do this below. If you wish for your pasta(s) to remain under their current licenses and be deleted, you do not need to do anything. I will automatically delete any of your pages which remain incompatibly licensed some time in the future.

Once your pasta has been deleted, it can be restored if you wish to change the license to CC BY-SA. Contact an administrator via their talk page, and ask for your pasta to be restored, being sure to note that the pasta was deleted because of licensing issues.

Changing the license on your pasta

Your pasta was identified as being incompatible due to the use of the {{By}} or {{By-user}} template, with the license parameter set to something other than cc-by-sa. For example, it could look something like the following:


To change the license to CC BY-SA, alter the license parameter to show the correct license. Note that, if using the {{By-user}} template, the license parameter is actually filled in automatically, and you can remove it altogether to have the same effect of changing to BY-SA. The examples above would become the following:


If you change the license in this fashion, your pastas will not be deleted. Please be aware of the implications of this license change - if you are switching from BY-NC/BY-ND, you will be allowing commercial use/derivatives of your pasta. Ensure this is what you want before changing license.

Contact an administrator if you need any assistance with changing your pasta's license.

Incompatible Pastas

I have included a list of your pastas which have incompatible licenses below. Once again, we'd like to apologise for this situation. If you need any assistance/information, please contact an administrator, or ask a question in the announcement thread. Thank you for your understanding.

Thank you.

RE: License

Hey man, unfortunately I'm not an admin any more, I just offered to help out with the licensing stuff because I still operated the bot, so I can't edit the page. Sorry! Hopefully an admin will get to it soon. Hope you're doing well :)

Yeah, they asked permission beforehand so it's all good, but thank you for looking out.

Story Licensing

Hey Shadow, how's it hanging?

Noticed in your last story you used the CC By-NC license. In the wiki, we no longer accept stories outside CC By-SA. If you don't want to change the licensing, I'm afraid the story will be removed. MrDupin (talk) 23:16, May 31, 2019 (UTC)

Hey there

Hey man, how's it going? Haven't talked to you in a while and last I've heard you were in a rough spot. Did everything work out okay? If you still have my you can email me if you want.


JohnathanNash (talk) 23:43, May 31, 2019 (UTC)

Yeah, I'm in about the same boat. If you still have my email, and want a review, you can send me a copy man.

Re: Narration Take Down

I got it, feel free if you want me to unprotect any pages for you or if you need anything else. Have a good one. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 19:16, November 13, 2019 (UTC)

Narration Request

Hello, Shadowswimmer77!

My name is Spirit Voices, and I am a horror narrator on YouTube. It's nice to meet you!

I just finished reading your story "The Devil's Trick," and I really enjoyed it! I think it'd be fun to put on my channel, if you'd be alright with that! :) I'd aim to have it out a week or so after the permission (should you choose to give it to me). You can look at previous videos of mine to see what I do in terms of credit and design to see if you think I'd be a good fit!

Either way, your story is amazing and very well-written, so I look forward to hearing back from you.

Thank you very much in advance for your time!

Edit: Hello, Shadowswimmer77!

I just posted your video! You can find it here . :) 

I hope you enjoy it! Your story was so fun to read! Thank you again for letting me read it.

Re: Migration Question

I thought the same when I did a source check on the story and saw it was uploaded to Reddit originally, but saw Christian address it in the edit history as I was reviewing it. Thanks for keeping an eye peeled. Have a good one. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 01:33, February 20, 2020 (UTC)

Looking for an Editor

Hi Shadowswimmer. How are you doing? I'm doing okay considering the circumstances. I have a sortof prequel story that just got published into an ebook that incorporate the same characters found in Dolbeer in Winter

Dolbeer in Winter--Part Two

It's not a creepypasta, however, and I don't think it will be accepted to the writer's workshop.

Right now, it can be found for free viewing at my main gallery site> The Treasure Hunters So far I had one person critique it, but they only offered some brief advice and didn't give a detailed list of what I should correct exactly. Maybe when you find the time, you could stop over and give it some much needed criticism.
