Tales through times : From Myths to Creepypastas
Backrooms/ SCP foundation
" Myths which are believed in tend to become true."
Myths are usually understood as stories about gods or divine figures. They answer big questions such as: how was the world created? Where do humans come from? How did we learn to make fire, or to smith metal? What is the origin of the gods?
The Sun and the Moon
"Behind every myth lies a truth; beyond every legend is reality, as radiant (sometimes as chilling) as the story itself"
Legends deal with heroes, imagined as human or superhuman.
The Gordian knot
"When knowledge is scant or conflicting, folklore takes over"
Folklore covers a range of beliefs, from the existence of fairies who dance in certain places when the moon is full, to the habits of the Loch Ness Monster, to the belief that witches can turn into hares and steal milk from cows.
An urban legend is a form of modern folklore in which stories told are thought to be true but are likely untrue or distortions and exaggerations of the truth. They are often modified to suit better to the place or year they are told.

"The seed of an urban legend find fertile soil at the corner of tragedy and imagination"
The term “creepypasta” is derived from the internet slang term “copypasta” (copy and pasted text). Creepypasta can be text-only, but some of the most famous stories were circulated with a cryptic image or video.
" We didn't want to go, we didn't want to kill them, but its persistent silence and outstretched arms horrified and comforted us at the same time..."

" If you're not careful and you noclip out of reality in the wrong areas you'll end up in the backrooms, where it's nothing but the stink of old moist carpets, the madness of mono-yellow, the endless background noise of fluorescent lights at maximum hum-buzz , and approximately six hundred million square miles of randomly segmented empty rooms to be trapped in. God save you if you hear something wandering around nearby, because it sure as hell has heard you."
