Retributors

Some time ago, there was a picture surfacing on the internet. It came with a text file and a video. The picture was called "Cold.png," the video was called "Graze.mov," and the text document was called "Initialize.txt."

The three files had a list of different things they did to the viewer, each separate of the other.

Cold.png was an image of Perch Creek's sewer system overlaid on a map of Perch Creek. Overlaid over this was an image of Ichor Forest and a picture of an old man with very tired eyes.

The eyes, as people claim, look into the viewer's soul. Bowel problems, as well as Nausea, have been reported. Opening the file freezes your pointer and, after fifteen minutes, the computer the file was opened on crashes.

Gaze.mov is said to be a video of a sleeping baby in a crib. After ten minutes of this, distortions begin to occur. The final three minutes of the video are of a woman with an abnormally long neck brushing her hair. Something is wrong with this woman, but the cause cannot be placed...besides her neck, that is.

The video is not inherently bad for your heath. However, viewing it causes others around you to be disturbed by you. This will cause psychosis in you because, after all, humans are social creatures.

Initialize.txt was by far the worst. It was actually an executable file in disguise. Executing this file would download a torrent of viruses that would wipe most of your information and crash your computer. The motherboard itself would be corrupted beyond repair of even the most talented hackers.

This 'txt' file, however, did open a text document. The only thing written there was eleven words that explain what exactly the Piche is. This is fabled to be what the teenage Andrea Cole wrote on a note before killing herself.

Andrea's picture - the picture of the Piche - has been unecoverable, but that is a different story completely.

Regardless, there was a group of ten hackers that called themselves the Retributors. They mostly plagued forums about Perch Creek and how "God wants his retribution." Even those who believed in the Piche knew these guys were spewing bullshit.

However, one of them started acting really weird. As it turns out, he had gotten his hands on the first of the three files: Cold.png. He delivered it to the rest of the Retributors and they looked at it to check up on it.

None of them dared open it on their own computers. Instead, they pulled the file up on a separate computer that promptly crashed not long after. After a week of nausea, they came back together and sold all their laptops and bought a $25,000 supercomputer.

This computer was used to hack into Cold.png. The hackers noticed something fishy in the binary, however. They removed the code and copy/pasted it into another document, assuming this was the cause for the computer crashing every time it was opened. They didn't open the picture, though. They were too smart for that.

A day later, they opened up the binary to check again and found that it had rewritten itself. The hackers made sure to copy this to a paper document and left it at one of the members' houses.

There were no more leads for almost another month. Then, out of the blue, the group received Graze.mov from an anonymous user by email.

They didn't dare open this file, either. They simply opened the binary and traced every charater until they found a list of numbers that didn't quite fit. It was the same for Initialize.txt. They pulled these numbers into a new program and began working on it.

They locked themselves into their leader's house and took turns working on solving the program for two months. After that, the numbers finally set out to a pattern. It was miraculous - so much so they finally left the house for one day.

They had breakfast and came back to the house, only to see a note one of them wrote on their door, scribbled out with an arrow indicating to turn the paper around. On the back was written BreakaSweat.mov.

When they ran the numbers, it produced a similar file they named BreakaSweat.mov. It was comprised of 55 binary digits, mostly 0s, in a demented loop. As it was with the files before, they didn't dare open it.

They put the file onto a flash drive and chose one member to watch the movie and record himself so the rest of the team could see what happens and promptly discuss what to do. The member was chose and he set up the video camera and turned on the movie.

The sound became distorted as soon as the movie opened, but the member didn't have any emotion for almost three minutes (about the length of the video).

Once it was over, the member stood up. Screaming could be heard in the background. After some time, the member sat back down. Both his eyes had needles plunged into them. He took a screwdriver and stabbed himself in the neck. The video was sent to the leader.

They all realized they couldn't watch the video. They let it rest and returned to their "God is angry" ways. One member, however, started his own project. He said he was going to watch the video and hand write everything he could about it.

The note was sloppy, at best. It won't be transcribed here, since it didn't make much sense. However, there were a few key things that should be mentioned. The video began at Ichor Forest's edge and ended at the tower. Between the two places were direct views of the Piche; it was almost as if it was looking back at you.

The member stopped the video before it ended and wrote one last thing: eleven words that struck horror into the rest of the hackers, who immediately disbanded, erased all files related to all of their work, and rebuilt their laptops. Those words were some of the most horrific words to a few members who strongly believed in the Piche.

The words?

Anything that takes the form of the Piche becomes the Piche.

So, remember as you read this. This speaks of the Piche. It takes the form of the spirit of the Piche and anything that takes the form of the Piche is the Piche.

  1. Well this was interesting... But I don't know what the Piche is so the ending was horrifying for me.

  4. It's a complete ripoff of Binary DNA, actually. At least as far as the bunch of hackers sitting around examining various paranormal computer files. In that one, they combined to form "BarelyBreathing.exe". And it was a shitty pasta to start with. :P

  7. "Does this look familiar to you?" Wow, there couldn't have been a better tag. The story is mostly taken from that Binary DNA story, as one of the above Anons pointed out, notably stuff like separate files that combined, and a group of hackers dedicated to solving it (they were called the Cardinals in that story, if memory serves).

    ReplyDelete
  8. Even if this is pretty much a copy of Binary DNA, I'd say it does the concept a little more justice and, overall, just works with it better. It's confusing as dick and needs a lot of context, but it has a lot of potential.

  11. Innuah don't post a creepy pasta that is located at Berlin (a town name in the united states) I had a horrific dream of it, and paranoid as **** right while typing this. Before I had a dream about it, or even came to this site I sorta had a memory of it of some kind. (this has happened with other stuff that ended up becoming 100% true)

  13. @Anonymous (like two comments above this)

    Berlin, as in Berlin, MD? I've been there a few times, how is it creepy?

    ReplyDelete
  14. It wasn't the place... It was what happened, and how realistic it was I could be stabbed outside that dream, and feel exactly how it would be inside the dream.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Okay, so you had a dream that you were stabbed in Berlin, and it felt real (setting, pain, etc)? Dreams can be pretty trippy. I've had moments where I've been on the threshold of waking and sleeping and I hear something, a shout, a roar, a siren, or whatever that jolts me awake. Nothing causes it, short of my own head, but it sounds real. That, and falling dreams. Bleh.

    On another note, Berlin, MD is a sweet little town. Lots of antique shops.

  16. I found this enjoyable for no particular reason at all.

  17. Do a bit more research before you write computer pastas or be more elusive
    It's just too illogical to be enjoyable

    ReplyDelete
  18. Binary DNA much? Not that it's inherently bad to borrow from--that's one of my favorites, actually (anybody know who wrote it? I'm an indie author, and I really want to loosely adapt it into a novel at some point). Suppose it would help if I knew what the Piche was actually meant to be. So I just... *read* the Piche? And then became it?

    ReplyDelete
  19. THEN WHO WAS PICHE?!?

  20. Is Ichor Falls this year's Candle Cove or something?

  21. @anon that got stabbed in a dream

    thats impossible unless you have been stabbed in real life humans cant feel what they havent felt yet lol

    ReplyDelete
  22. @Trevor

    It's all related back to the slew of Ichor Forest crap that's been added. He supposedly has the power to slaughter villages and now, apparently, other people can be turned into Piches.

    The real issue here is that there's no plausible means of transmission via the Internet and so, even if the Piche were real, if you don't live near it, you're safe. I admire when people make creatures but it's infinitely better when they have some concept of Biology and craft a frightening monster that is at least remotely believable instead of just claiming the thing's magic so that they can suit some pseudo-scary scenario they needed a creature to fulfill. Simply put, the formula lately is, "See this scary thing? The Piche did it. Wait, that doesn't make sense? Well, it's just an undiscovered Piche power then. Magic! WoooooOOOOoooo!"

    ReplyDelete
  23. I dunno'. I like this story line. I always wanted some sort of ongoing storyline with pastas.

    ReplyDelete
  24. And then they all melted. Seriously guys, they melted.

    ReplyDelete
  25. If anyone knew what a "Piche" is, or if the author gave a sliver of backstory, then this may have been enjoyable. Creepypastae are getting more boring and unoriginal as time passes. It seems as though stories are just regurgitated masses of uninspiring literature that piques the tastes of half-wits who like to hear the sound of a keyboard clicking.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm pretty lost myself. I've read through all the Ichor Falls website and it never mentions a Piche (least as far as I remember).

    I don't know if I'm getting more jaded or if the creepypastas really are getting worse. I kind of hope it's the former.

  27. post more like ben drowned, thats my fav pasta cuz the day after i read it someone in my town named ben drowned

  28. @MohawkLogan: Actually it is very possible for the mind to be so enthralled and absorbed in a dream that you physically feel something you have never felt before. I speak from experience.

    i agree i love the pastas that ave to do with games it relates to me being a gamer and having some weird things happen to me while i was playing not creepy pasta worthy but odd nonethless of course it was in cod during a nazi zombies match but that makes it all the less scary because i knew i was bound to jump if i had turned around and happend to see a zombie on my screen because i swear zombies will not hit you from behind they will stand there and wait and wait until you turn around just to make you jump but basicly me and my friend were playing i lagged out of the game somehow got back in if anyone knows anything about nazi zombies you would know you cant get back into a game but anyway i then died as in singleplayer died where you charecter throws his hand up and dies realistic like where the last thing you see is your hand then we both lagged out got back in we were back on round 1 with all our points and guns we had before we lagged out lets just say this made the game that much easier :D

  34. Could people PLEASE stop posting stories about cryptids or demons that inexplicably tie into computer-based phenomena? It really doesn't make sense for phenomena supposedly based in the real world to suddenly have damning messages about them hidden in games, jpegs, txt files, or anything else involving the internet. This is all the more true for entities/phenomena whose existences supposedly predate the internet or computers.

    Seriously, what's happened to creepypastas anchored in real life?

  37. I found this quite enjoyable. I'm new to creepy pasta so I don't fully understand all the references in the comments and stories so if anyone would be willing to spare some time to explain it to me via comment or email(once again I'm new so I don't know all forms of communication) I would be highly greatfull.

  46. I don't get the feeling that they actually transformed into the Piche in the story... If I understand correctly, they just saw a video in which the Piche was depicted and it seemed to have killed them because the depiction of the Piche is, in fact, the Piche.

    I guess this would have made a lot more sense if I knew just what the motherfucking Piche is. could anyone PLEASE post an answer rather than complain abopu how old this particular brand of pastas gets?

    That must be the best comment i've read on here. This pasta was pretty damn bad. Why would they need a supercomputer to make a picture into binary? ANd countless other things that was just... bad

    ReplyDelete
  48. How the fuck do you hack a png file...does the author meanthe hackers examined the code? And even if they did examine the code I doubt it'd be so hard/involved that they'd need a "supercomputer" to do it.

    Also if the initialize.txt(Executable) file corrupts the motherboard beyond repair, how does the PC then display the text file it contains after the affected system has crashed permanently?

    After that bit I just skimmed the rest of the crap the author calls a story until the ending, which I see rips off the Angels in Dr. Who quite nicely.

  51. Twenty years and four generations in the[url=http://www.shop-yishunbike.com/wheels/road-professional-wheels]carbon road wheel[/url]making, Campagnolo has finally presented not just one but two electronic groups,
    Record EPS (Electronic Power Shift) and Super Record ysbike01 EPS, both with identical functionality but slight differences in weight and bearing performance just like the mechanical analogues.
    While consumers are only just now seeing[url=http://www.shop-yishunbike.com/wheels/road-professional-wheels]alloy road wheelsets[/url]he production version of Campagnolo's new electronic group,
    the company actually first began its first development work in 1992 – back when eight-speed drivetrains and integrated brake/shift levers were still considered state-of-the-art and about a year before Mavic's first ill-fated commercial attempt.
    Campagnolo's first working prototype was[url= http://www.shop-yishunbike.com/wheels/road-professional-wheels-2]carbon wheel[/url]like everything else in those days – an eight-speed system and the company's developers tucked the electronics and battery inside a gutted water bottle.
    The necessary derailleur motors and actuators were quickly deemed too heavy and bulky to be practical, though, and the idea was relegated to indefinite development status.
    While the company was convinced a motorized transmission [url=http://www.shop-yishunbike.com]carbon wheels[/url]represented the next logical step in terms of performance, it nonetheless also felt no pressure to bring a system to market on a specific timeline.
    The section of the brakes, called the brake pad or brake shoe,that comes into contact with the moving rim is usually made of rubber or leather to maximize the friction needed to stop.
    All other parts of the braking system—arms, cable, and levers—must be rigid
    and precisely positioned to transfer the relatively light force exerted by hands on brake leversto the high power needed in the brakes for effective braking.
