All Firemen Are Heroes


The flames are in full force now. Glass is shattering from the heat generated from this inferno. Even the charred wood is beginning to splinter, unable to withstand the weight of the 2nd and 3rd floors above. You know, it is fires like these that made me want to become a fireman. To see raging death dance across the floors, walls and ceilings is an incredibly beautiful and mystical sight. Don’t you agree?

With each person I pulled out of this burning tomb I saw more and more flashes of cameras from my fans and admirers. It feels incredible to be loved and honored like a hero. It is intoxicating even. I cannot get enough of it. That’s why I keep going into the jaws of death to save these irrelevant people. People like you. What they do not know is that I already know how the flame is going to spread and I know where it is safe and where it is not. That’s why I started the fire there…there…and over there.

Unfortunately, for you, I cannot pull you from this beautiful place. You are the last one in the building…well besides me. My fans tend to question how dangerous fires like these can be if no one dies within them. That’s why I must leave you here. My people must know how much danger I put myself in. The adoration is more sincere this way. You understand don’t you? Look, here is some advice for you my friend. Inhale the smoke. Trust me when I say that it is better than the alternative. Okay then…see ya after the cinders die out.

    It was decent, your writing style is good but far too short. I understand that may be the point, but I’d love a longer story from you.

  • Commented on May 29, 2013 at 6:51 pm

    It may be strange, but I find this fireman quite attractive in a psycho sort of way.

  • Commented on June 15, 2013 at 8:02 am

    That honestly makes me slightly paranoid now XD

  • Commented on June 15, 2013 at 3:07 pm

    I liked this one. The point of view really emphasized this story, as if the author was talking to me. Explaining to me his psychopathic ways, as if I would understand. Pretty good.

  • Commented on June 25, 2013 at 3:42 pm

    Written in a beautifully twisted style. Good job!

  • Commented on June 26, 2013 at 12:59 am

    Follow him as he leaves. Quickly.

  • Commented on September 3, 2013 at 6:31 pm

    Damn this kind of unnerved me !

  • Commented on October 16, 2013 at 1:29 am

    Somehow, I had missed this. Excellent and subtle story.

  • Commented on October 18, 2013 at 2:15 pm

    Sickeningly satisfying. If my house burns down, I hope he’s not the one to save me though. d:

  • Commented on November 6, 2013 at 7:58 pm

    this is sickining in the good way. knowing that a firfighter that starts fires is something to fear. :s

  • Commented on November 8, 2013 at 12:16 pm

    I hate this pasta specifically because my dad is a firefighter. Otherwise it’s creepily brilliant.

  • Commented on December 9, 2013 at 3:00 pm

    Using arisen to make yourself a hero, a sick and twisted heroism. Just too short 3/5

  • Commented on February 24, 2014 at 8:22 pm

    Yeah, pretty good! I like the concept and i actually dont think that this pasta would be good, if it was any longer! Nice.

  • Commented on October 30, 2014 at 12:53 pm

    i dont is was a good pasta but a good horror story

  • Commented on December 13, 2014 at 10:48 pm

    WONDERFUL! I fell in love with this fireman in a sick, twisted, psychotic kind of way. Just wish it was longer! 9/10

  • Commented on January 11, 2015 at 5:28 pm

    loved the pasta. it’s kinda sad at the end. 10/10

    Commented on January 29, 2015 at 6:51 am

    really good of curse is short other wise the building will fall on both

  • Commented on May 7, 2015 at 1:55 pm

    dont firemen have to take psychiatric evals befor they are allowed to work? I think this one did not pass

  • Commented on May 21, 2015 at 5:42 pm

    Oh, very twisted. I loved it.

  • Commented on June 17, 2015 at 7:57 pm

    I no longer feel safe around fire-fighters.. I hope your happy


  • Commented on June 21, 2015 at 10:49 pm

    2/5 stars.

    A psychopathic narrative voice isn’t inherently scary, especially if it breaks suspension of disbelief by addressing the reader directly without creating an immersive setting through descriptive writing; the writer was on the right track in the beginning of the first paragraph but I feel they dropped suspense for a hasty introduction to the antagonist’s Hero Syndrome.

    Segments of these three short paragraphs seem better suited as a monologue during the climax/ big reveal within the story of the treacherous fireman. I felt this creepypasta could have been more effective, if written in a third person perspective. That way, the reader could have been introduced to the woman/child/ whoever-it-is trapped in the building and could empathize with that character’s terrifying betrayal.

    In conclusion, the writer should replace “You” with a believable, likable character the reader would be shocked to see perish in a fire. It’s a Good idea, I just thought the execution left much to be desired.

    This was wonderful, beautifully written!

    in a weird way the fireman kinda felt like someone from death note or something someone from death note would say don you agree of course you do you want to get out but your sincerly hopeless you dont have anyone your either have gotten it or you havent so ill leave you here and think in your beautiful brain youll never get out…………..ever hahha im good at this thing and im only 11! hahha yay!

  • Commented on September 4, 2015 at 9:25 pm

    Interesting plot twist.. Tasty pasta.

  • Commented on September 10, 2015 at 6:58 pm

    I liked it, it really plays on the “angel of death” style fear that happens in the real world.

  • Commented on October 2, 2015 at 6:59 am

    I enjoyed this and it confirmed what I’ve known all along….job security lol. Great job

    It’s stories like these that make me want to post a pasta. I want to so badly but it’s just not my style:( If anyone knows of a way I could post my stories that would be appreciated.

  • Commented on December 14, 2015 at 11:41 pm

    I loved this so much!! Great Great story! And the twist at the end made it even better! I recommend this to everyone!

    loved this it was really great

  • Commented on March 10, 2016 at 12:36 am

    I like reading these short stories because they only have so much detail they can put into them and I love your writing perspective, making it seem like he his talking to me about leaving me in the building. I give this pasta 10/10.

  • Commented on April 1, 2016 at 12:57 am

    I like the concept but thought the execution could be better.

  • Commented on May 5, 2016 at 4:24 pm

    My dad is a fire-fighter… Now I’m worried

  • Commented on May 8, 2016 at 11:18 pm

    I wish tim burton made creepypastas movies, so that i could see it play out.

  • Commented on September 15, 2016 at 7:01 pm

    kinda boring

  • Commented on October 18, 2016 at 4:15 pm

    This was really creepily twisted. You should write more pastas like this.

  • Commented on January 3, 2017 at 10:55 am

    Both of my parents are firefighters, so I know what a burning building sounds and looks like. You described it almost perfectly. There was a few spelling and grammar errors, but I liked it. 4/5

  • Commented on January 19, 2017 at 10:17 pm

    This is great. I narrated it. Tell me if I’m good or not.

    Shameless self promotion for the win! Awesome story though

    Somehow I love reading this over and over, it has this feel to it, you know?

  • Commented on May 19, 2017 at 5:08 am

    Even though the story was amazingly written my father is a firefighter and I just can’t see firefighters other than the way I know them and this makes me feel terrible. Great story writing though.

  • Commented on May 20, 2017 at 2:54 am

    Hm. Quite fascinated I must say.. How much work and thought do you put into these pastas? Because I think you have done a unexplicable amount of thought into this piece. Don’t cha’ change a thing. I’ll be waiting! 🙂

  • Commented on August 8, 2017 at 6:50 pm

    I read the title and I thought it was gonna be sweet. turned out I now have even less hope in our fire department.

  • Commented on December 1, 2017 at 9:26 pm

    mmm.. that smoke tasted real gucci

  • Commented on April 23, 2018 at 8:08 pm

    it is kinda like a ironic story like u expect the fireman to save people but this put a spin on it it to show what fame does to people

    This is my first comment on this site but I had to comment on this one as I knew a guy like this fireman. He was a nurse who got off on hero worship for saving lives so he would use muscle relaxant to stop peoples hearts then revive them. He’s in prison now for multiple counts of murder for all the times it didn’t go to plan.

  • Commented on August 31, 2018 at 4:38 am

    I absolutely love the twist, and it makes me think of a character I hate from a show I used to watch 🙂

  • Commented on December 26, 2019 at 3:34 am

    I really wish this would have been longer. Maybe you could write a follow up creepypasta?
