Don't get me wrong.
If you take your time and look you'll find real gems out there (however when it says "hasn't been updated since 2006", always cuts me up inside...).
Some however can be the 9th circle of Hell personified (whether genuine or troll fics), and either make you cry or laugh while your sanity unravels.
One of my friends linked me to a dramatic reading of one called "My Immortal"...
Basically Harry Potter if they were all hardcore goths. I'm not joking. Hermonie, Harry and Ron have their names changed to B'loody Mary, Vampire, and Diablo (whut? .-.).
And the main Fan character has the longest f**king name ever. I'm gonna have to find it on google and paste it.
Ebony Dark'ness Dementia Raven (although it's replaced with Tara halfway for some reason) Way.
I nearly had a f**king brain aneurism reading this crap.
I admit when you first start you kinda do get a laugh out of it because it's so bad.
The part where Voldemort first appears always cracks me up xD
But halfway through things just drag, and drag and DRAG!!! It was painful to finish >.> Stupid curiosity.
And another friend linked me to some Hetalia creepypastas, and... Are they supposed to scare me?
I just can't imagine Iggy summoning Satan and killing me. It makes me laugh if anything else xD
And some of them you can literally predict. The lost episodes, the theory about the deaths of people in real life being inspiration for the characters etc.
Or Matthew isn't noticed. Could it be he's actually a ghost?
*reads chapter 12* They sure dragged that on.
Some of them are ok. Unique enough concepts and create a good atmosphere. Well worth the read
You will find some gems of you look. Just bring a bottle of brain bleach and kitten pictures on standby just in case xD
And if the diamond you find hasn't been updated since 2006... I feel you
