Who is Tainted Shorts?

My name's Thomas Anthony Lay and I'm the author of the World of Naeisus and the creator of Tainted Shorts. I've always loved horror stories and the Creepy Pastas that came about on Reddit. Owing to the talent of the authors that write these stories, I wanted to set up a place where they can post their work freely to a wider community and so I did. Everyone is welcome to be a part of this community, just as long as you adhere to the following (common sense) rules.

Terms of Use

We want everyone to be able to enjoy Tainted Shorts and for it to be a fun and safe place where we can all get our horror kicks. Please observe the following rules.

  • Racism, sexism, homophobia, or prejudice of any kind will not be tolerated,

  • Flaming will not be tolerated,

  • Please keep negative comments constructive (we can all learn from constructive feedback!),

  • Only post your own original content - no plagiarism.

Tainted Shorts reserves the right to revoke 'writer' status, delete posts, or ban users for any breach of these terms.

Copyright Statement

Every post on Tainted Shorts remains the sole property of their respective author. Tainted Shorts does not claim any ownership or rights over any post by any other author. Posts cannot be reposted, copied, or recreated in text, audio, or visual format, or otherwise monetized without the express written consent of its author.


Noo, ads, boo! I know, I'm sorry. As we know, running a website isn't free. Luckily, this one is quite cheap so I aim to keep the ads as minimal and as non-intrusive as possible. I apologise for the inconvenience. If any ad placement is causing a reasonable issue, please alert me in the forums. I will also never force you to turn off your adblocker.

Unfortunately, running this site isn't free. If you've enjoyed using the site, please consider donating a cup of coffee's worth so we can continue to upgrade and expand going forward. The amount is entirely up to you, we're grateful for every penny.

Thank you!
