Well let me start by saying that Alexa Van Helsing is my Wattpad name and I no longer have the account after this. I am in my late teens and I am soon going to college. I want to be a journalist and an author once I get out of school. Writing fanfiction is a way to help me relieve stress since I have anxiety and it has only gotten worse after this. Now most people believe that fanfiction. net is a place where no one can really harm or stalk you and I am here to tell everyone that, that is a load of BS. This story happened about four months ago and I don’t think I will ever have another fanfiction account after this. Now I never thought I would be on this and telling one of my own stories unless it was creepypasta, so I hope this helps my anxiety though I really don’t know if it does.
So one day I was writing fanfiction on my account, I love writing about creatures and horror though by my screen name you can tell I love that kind of stuff. My favorite thing to write is vampire stories ones where there’s a girl vampire slayer. Where I got my name from was a book I love to read when I was younger it was called the Alex Van Helsing Series and it is by Jason Henderson. This might have been a bad idea since there are people that to bully you out there, but this story has nothing to do with bullying.
Usually I would take request from some people after I wrote a chapter or so in one of my stories. People would ask me to write something for them and we would talk about it over Private message. Now none of these people that messaged me wrote anything threatening towards me. Really the only reason they would ever message me was to talk about what they wanted in the story I was writing for them. The one day out of the blue I got a message from a Vladimir Dracula which made me smile since I thought he was another vampire fan like I am.
I opened the message and was horrified to find he had messaged me very unpleasant things. Such as calling me a whore and a slut, note I am still a virgin and plan to be until I get married. I knew there would be people like him out there so I ignored the messages and for some reason didn’t bother blocking him. Looking back on it, it might have been out of fear of him doing something else. Over the next few days I got message after message all the time from Dracula and it said the same things as the others. I was a whore, I was a bitch and other things. One of them even told me to hurt myself which I will never do.
Still instead of blocking or reporting him I just let it slide thinking he would leave me alone and for a short time I was right. For nearly two weeks I got nothing from him and thought it was all over. Boy was I wrong, because the next week I got a message from him and this one terrified me. He had started saying things like how he was going to hurt me and how he knew I was a little bitch and things like that. Now after two days of getting this stuff I had, had enough and messaged him back like I’ll admit an idiot.
I had messaged him back telling him to stop harassing me and to act like an adult and that seemed to work for about an hour. After that he messaged me back and said he would get me for what I had done. I sent him a message asking what I had done and you will not believe what he told me back. He said I had disrespected his father Dracula and how us Van Helsings were weak and the only thing I was good for was baring his father’s children if I even got that lucky.
That was when I had enough this guy actually thought I was a freaking Van Helsing which I am not. So after that I deleted my account that instant and I have still not created another and I am debating on whether or not to create another one.
So to end this I have two things to say, the first is be safe on whatever form of social media you use even if it is just a fanfiction account you never know who your going to get. The final thing is to the creepy guy that called me all those things and who believes that I am a Van Helsing and that he is Dracula’s son. Vladimir as you call yourself, if you ever get the chance to see or hear this please let us never ever meet in person.
