I've returned here thanks to the true life case of Elisa Lam, an unsolved mystery that I can't shake out of my head. It's a creepypasta that actually happened, and like the best pasta, utterly lacks a satisfying explanation. I hardly need mention that the story is spooky as hell.
If you haven't heard of Elisa Lam, here are the undisputed facts: Elisa Lam was a 21 year old Canadian student, vacationing in California. She disappeared while staying at the seedy (and now shut down) Cecil Hotel in a sketchy part of LA in Jan. 2013 when she disappeared.

I've only discovered the phenomenon of Creepypasta over the past week, and I couldn't be happier. Sure, I've read and/or heard about some of the stories before. I mean, who hasn't heard of Slenderman? But all this? This is awesome! I love spooky stories, especially the subtle type with open endings. This probably has something to do with my love of Asian horror movies as well. I love slow, building suspense, and I love having something left to wonder and ponder over when the story's done. I also love a good urban legend. Or a rural one. Spooky folktales with modern updates are some of my favourite stories.
This site is also inspiring me like all hell! Usually writing doesn't come easily to me, but I'm finding spooky stories in my head that …Read more >
