Could any of you recommend literature that sort of resembles greentext stories on 4chan? Basically stuff written by outcasts, weird stories like that? I like Bukowski and I sort of like Dennis Cooper. I'm looking for autobiographicalish stuff about maybe "disenfranchized" youth or something. Obscene stories about alternative kids.
Verwandlung is not entirely a story concerning a NEET, considering the fact that Gregor Samsa is the sole source of income in the family.
It is rather a story of a massive cuck and beta.

thanks. I'm just curious, why is there no literature like this? about basically the life of a 4chan person? i don't think it would be boring to me
There probably is and we haven't heard of it, either because it's shit, a suicide note, or unpublished. Also the type of indolence and self-deprecation/hatred 4cahn creates in the mind doesn't lend itself to a book, much less creating one. Pessoa was about as close to getting the "4chan person" with Soares in the Book of Disquiet, but even then there's some key differences.
I don't think literature in the conventional sense with compelling characters, plot, action, and etc. lends itself to the 4chan dynamic. If we take some of the common traits of a 4channer, (or at least traits that are observable of an extremely large anonymous community) it's dilettantism, inaction, disdain for contemporaries, and loneliness. To capture what's like to be such a person, literature would have to forego plot in favor of static action, relationships in place of internal dialogue, character development in exchange for stunted growth. The end result would look less like a book with a starting, middle, and end point and more like a continuous stream of a certain personality: a diary. If you were to create a book with all the conventional mechanics and still emphasize on the 4chan personality, I suppose you would have a work that is either demeaning to the personality or not showing the full extent and gravity of the personality.
Now being a diary doesn't make something automatically juvenile or bad, but it has different criterion from being literature.
thanks for your response.
to be honest, diaries are kind of what i am looking for, at least at this point. i like reading people's diaries, basically. but i don't know where to find them. i can find people's blogs but they often arent personal or they aren't that interesting.
and so im left with people on 4chan posting their greentext stories
do you know of any blogs like that?
