First off, thanks for offering to help; we really appreciate it. Although I would hate to see you disqualified, we may end up going that route so it gets done. I'll talk to the others and get back to you ASAP. I think you'd make a great judge, but I really want to try and figure out a way to keep your story in the contest. I see Ruckus made an edit a few hours ago, so I messaged him again. We'll see what happens. Thanks again for volunteering.
- Update: Dupin has volunteered to judge so you're not disqualified. If Ruckus doesn't speak up in the next couple days, we'll likely be handing it over to Dupin. Again, we really appreciate your willingness to help out, and would certainly have let you if it weren't for your being disqualified in the process. You obviously spent a lot of time on that story, so any option that allows it to stay in the running has to be our first choice. Thanks again.
- Update Two: Ruckus messaged me and said he'll be wrapping the judging up in the next few days. Thanks again for offering to help and good luck in the contest.
RE: Night Man
I don't know how "Say" to "Σay" happened. I probably switched to Greek accidentally. It is fixed now. About the NSFW tag, there were only a handful of occassions where you described something NSFW, and even that had little NSFW description, so I think it should not be tagged as such. If you want, you can re-add the category. I'm OK either way.
I just felt the urge to congratulate you personally on your second place win in Ruckus's contest. Great Job! I was actually expecting it to win!
Was that last message on your talk page harassment?
I feel like I need some constructive criticism, and was wondering if I could get your time of day for a few stories. I would like to have someone who looks at a pasta with a critical eye and you seem to fit the bill. So if you wouldn't mind checking out some of my stories that would be great.
I know I have written some shit bombs, so to avoid the hassle of hearing how something is a trope or whatnot, I will give you the ones I would like a review on. To the Moon, Voice Messages, Withdrawals and Spirit Bottles.
One of those stories are about the occult. I hope I don't offend you in any way, I read you were a Satanist I believe. Most of the stories I write have some message to them, and I have studied religions of all kinds, including Satanism, Wicca and Paganism in general, for most of my life. So please believe me I mean no disrespect to any religion.
I am actually an atheist, who doesn't believe in any form of supernatural events. I'll give your stories a look when I can, which may be over the course of the next few days. ShawnHowellsCP (talk) 03:17, September 21, 2015 (UTC)
Just checking in to see if you had a chance to look at any of those stories I asked you to look at?
You can go ahead and nominate a story if you like. Here's the page - Nominations
- You should add your own signature and not the author's. As it stands, it looks like he self-nominated his story. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 00:30, September 25, 2015 (UTC)
Thank you so much for the Nom.
I'll check it out
I'll be sure to check it out tonight or tomorrow and let you know. I've heard good things about it though.
A little Feedback
I was wondering if you could take a look at a story I have written for the contest. It is in WW and titled Bedtime for my Daughter. If you could give me a little feed back that would be splendid.
I'll give it a glance tonight and leave you some feedback.
Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you, but I work two jobs and time is not always in my favor. I will love to read you story and will be able to do so on Saturday or Sunday.
Hey buddy, I was wondering if you could look at a story of mine. It still needs some polishing, but I'm really struggling with the creep factor. Any input would be awesome. http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:502786#3
Re: Wolf Men
Hey, I noticed Mr.Creepypasta narrated one of your pastas. Congrats, man!
Frankenstein with Boris Karloff, Dwight Frye and Colin Clive is one of my favorite horror movies.
I'll take a look at it and leave you some feedback this week.
- Also, I noticed that in a lot of your stories you sign with ShawnHowellsCP instead of your current username. Is that intended, or should I go ahead and update them? Or you don't care? MrDupin (talk) 10:41, November 2, 2015 (UTC)
No problem. It might take a day or two but I'll give it a read.
Creepypasta Costume Contest
Thanks for participating in the Creepypasta Costume Contest (2015). Here is a link where you can view the costumes. Thanks for entering and putting time into your costume. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 04:08, November 10, 2015 (UTC)
I'll check it out and leave some feedback over tomorrow or the next day.
Yeah, I can do that.

Hello! Can we talk a little?
I feel like talking to you :3
Hey buddy, I just heard a narration of Enlightenment of a War Machine and was blown away. Exceptional! This is the type of literature that grabs you by the face and slaps you around. It's more of an experience than just reading a story. You tell the stories I try to tell, just not as sophisticated and eloquent as you can obtain. I'm finding my path of storytelling is more along the lines of infusing humor to relay my plots. Anyways, I would be extremely flattered if you would read my very first story. It's my story that was over three decades in the making. I still remember me as a kid, sitting in church, trying reconcile my difficulty accepting how could there be an all powerful God with no beginning or end (unsuccessfully I might add). That was the seed for The Sounding of the Fifth Trumpet. Reading your style more and more, it would mean a lot to me to hear your opinion of this story. The artwork is mine as well. Thanks for your timeKillaHawke1 (talk) 05:06, November 19, 2015 (UTC)
Hello! I Just Wanted To Say Hello! That's All! So If You Can Leave Me A Message And We Can Talk A Little, bye! --LiamGaming
Don't sweat it
Thank you very much for your review of The Sounding of the Fifth Trumpet. I am really proud of that piece, especially it being my very first story. I am in total agreement about ritual/instructional based stories. I really liked them at first, but the formula gets repetitive and uninteresting very fast. That is what gave me the idea of the voice of the narrator having a more character and emotional connection with my protagonist. With its personal agenda and identity revealed, I think I pulled off a unique twist ending that seemed to work very well. KillaHawke1 (talk) 23:34, December 3, 2015 (UTC)

Got your message! Schedule permitting, I'm hoping to complete your reviews by about Jan 1st. Happy holidays!
Re: Asking something of you
Hello! Well, I have to admit I'm intrigued! Please let me know what you're thinking and I'll let you know. Incidentally, in case you haven't seen my new post, I noted, "On numerous occasions I've depicted my characters... slashed with rivers of blood flowing from the wounds, but if I depicted guts, it might not look realistic enough." Keep that in mind if you were thinking of something gory. Raidra (talk) 18:59, January 8, 2016 (UTC)
- I think I can handle that. Just give me a couple days and I should have something for you. Raidra (talk) 00:35, January 9, 2016 (UTC)
Okay, here's what I came up with! The color on Enki didn't show up too well (I colored the rays of light a fluorescent yellow orange and his skin a lighter version of the same), but I think it still turned out looking radiant. I tried to have smudges around Dread and it turned out looking like a dark aura. If that's not okay I can try to color over it. Mendes appears to be missing parts of two fingers, but that's because he's making a gesture in which two fingers are straight and two are bent. If you approve, then I can cut them into three sections so you can post them individually (if that's what you want). To paraphrase John Lennon, I hope I passed the audition. Raidra (talk) 15:00, January 9, 2016 (UTC)
- Oh, shoot, I forgot to post the picture! Here it is! Raidra (talk) 15:01, January 9, 2016 (UTC)
- You're certainly welcome. I'm glad I could help. :-D Raidra (talk) 19:21, January 9, 2016 (UTC)
Re: In Torment 4- First Three Chapters
I'll get around to it soon, your stories are a joy to read.
10:58, January 17, 2016 (UTC)
- I'm afraid I might not have the time to read them on the Workshop. Exams are approaching fast and I still have Banning's story to read. In the Workshop you will need feedback quickly, and I'm not sure I can provide it. If nobody gives you feedback though, I will gladly step in to give you some. And of course, when you finish the story, I'll read and review it.
I'll be more than happy to
Flattered to know that my work as been an influence. You are a very talented writer, so it means a lot to hear that something I created has assisted you. I will look over your work, I promise, but sadly my time is very limited at the moment. I'm sure you've noticed my lack of presence on the site lately. I recently took on a new job that is wearing me out and leaving me with almost no free time. Yep, I hate it, but it pays well so I am really torn on whether I should quit in favor of my mental health or stick it out in order to play the role of proper husband and father. However, I will set aside some time to review your stories, just please be patient.
Also, I would love it if you would leave some feedback on some of my works as well. I recall you left one of the most brillaint and detailed reviews on my first Tobit story, and would really appreciate some of that on my others. My last Tobit entry has very few remarks, and your input would be greatly appreciated.
Contest winner reviews
Just wanted to update you, I haven't forgotten these and they're still on my to do list. Life has been somewhat hectic as of late but I'm intending on getting to them in the next week or two. Apologize for the delay! Shadowswimmer77 (talk) 01:35, January 26, 2016 (UTC)
Hey man, it's no problem. It was getting bothersome for me as well because I kept having to roll back everything he was doing.
Have a good one.
Hakuna matata, what a wonderful phrase and it's no passing craze. (talk) 17:50, February 17, 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the review! I rewrote the ending and completely removed the soldiers. I'm more satisfied with this version of the story. If you are interested, would you mind telling me your thoughts http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:525756 ? Thanks again :D Buckle up! I'm going to be popular 22:05, February 17, 2016 (UTC)
I will try to get around to it sometime this week. Unfortunately, I just finished up with a number of more in-depth review requests so I have a bit of fatigue going on. As it's a longer story, I'll try to look it over during the weekend when I have more time to devote. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 10:11, March 9, 2016 (UTC)
- I will give it a read, but I'm afraid it will take a long while. I have some other stories I want to get around to reviewing, and they are all pretty long. But I'll get to it eventually, don't worry. MrDupin (talk) 14:37, March 9, 2016 (UTC)

Re Review Request
Hey bro, I'm a rollback... does that count as a member of staff? Well I guess a more chilled, less scary version of an admin, lol.
Sure I'll check it out. But it's very long so might take me until the end of the week because exams and coursework shit but I'll get to it, don't worry.
