It is actually impossible to write a good Courage the Cowardly Dog creepypasta
Like legitimately, and not just because lost episode pastas have become kinda hokey in general. It is completely resistant to all the classic lost episode pasta tropes because they have literally all occurred in the actual show.
“And then this hyper realistic-”
“And then this disturbing, demonic voice that will haunt me for the rest of my life-”
“I can’t explain exactly what was so creepy about it, it was just unsettling-”
“And then [character] was killed, literally just killed right there-”
“But there was-”
“Yeah but there was like-”
“Wait, hold on-”
“Aw fuck it.”

It’s been exactly two years since this episode came out and Blake and Yang have had so many amazing moments together since, but I will never forget how this made me feel.
Because my heart stopped when Blake walked into a room filled with chaos and people she had no reason to expect to see, and three of those people were the ones she said she loved like she never thought she could love anyone.
And then the only thing she was able to do in that moment was say Yang’s name in the softest way anyone has ever said it. Nobody else’s, just Yang’s. Every single person Blake left behind at Beacon was in that room, and the only thing she could focus on was that Yang was there and that was better than anything I dreamed up in 23 months.
And Yang’s reaction! The Lingering Shot of her staring at Blake with such wonder and disbelief. The way they framed it so it looks like the rest of the world stopped existing as soon as she laid eyes on Blake again. I knew Yang stilled cared deeply about Blake even though she tried so hard to deny it, but the way she looked at her in this moment just sealed everything for me.
Blake and Yang’s separation was always the most significant one because of the circumstances surrounding it. Blake left specifically because of her guilt over what happened to Yang. Yang was more heartbroken than anyone else about Blake’s disappearance, and it was clear from the beginning that she didn’t stop caring about Blake after it. We saw how much they missed each other during their time apart, with Yang’s half of Alone Together being the clearest demonstration of it.
So it made sense to expect their reunion to be something special. And it was. Time stoppingly so.
If I hadn’t already been convinced that Blake and Yang would have a romantic storyline after Heroes and Monsters, this would have been the moment that did it. This was the moment I held onto in all the ensuing discourse following volume 5 about their relationship. Because this is the moment that showed me that this is it, Blake and Yang are The Real Deal for each other.
And the weight of all that hits me every single time I even think about it.
