    • Sarah's Creepypasta Lab
      Sarah's Creepypasta Lab

      I agree, some people think c.c's name is Chris for some reason, if no-one knows what the name is, we can just use Evan and Chris as nicknames and call him whatever we want.

      2nd, once we complete the stichwrath story there will be the very last fazbear fright story and it will be one book about him or like you said in one episode he will be in security breach

    • CloudPlayz

      Ok 1st, in fnaf vr when glitchtrap is next to you you can hear him say somthing but its very distorted, he is saying "Hello?" "Can you hear me?" He says it a couple of times before going quiet, im thinking there are multiple people within glitchtrap OR He is talking to vanny but we just can't here her. Just like how they talk through the coding In the game

    hope you all have a nice week, wanted to let you know that Jesus loves you and died for you. you might think of this as annoying and you’ve seen it a lot, but it’s more than that. those who share this are happy with Christ and believe in eternal life and happiness. they want you to be a part of that too, and so do i. you can have your own opinion and i respect it and you can ignore this and that’s fine. stay safe. i believe in you. in whatever you want to do. God has not left you, and never will. again, Jesus Christ loves you so much. He is willing to heal you and anyone else no matter what they’ve done. He has died for us and proved that He is the Christ, Savior, and Protector. God heals us, even though we are wicked. think about that. may we not be ashamed to share His word, for He was not ashamed of us.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. I’ve never lost someone to suicide, but I have friends that I worry will lose their battle against it. Some days I worry about whether I will. This video is incredibly heartfelt and I’m sure if Ronnie was here he would be honoured to have such a wonderful friend and a beautiful tribute. I hope you can hold on to the good memories of Ronnie and the good times you had together. ❤️❤️❤️
