Elf on a Shelf

It’s Christmas time, and my mom wanted to start a new tradition. Of course she had to make it “Elf on a Shelf”. I wasn’t too enthusiastic about the idea, but she knew that I wouldn’t go for just a hidden elf. So my mom made it a murdering elf. Why the fuck not, right? It’s already creepy enough looking already. But that’s not it. She put post-it notes on the elf and they were clues to find the “victims” of the elf. She knew I was horrible at finding things, so this was for her amusement. I was completely against it. I hated the idea, but she insisted that I do it. Well, insisting turned into forcing. I’m happy now though… This elf is my best friend. You probably think I’m crazy right now, right? Just… just hear me out. I… I am holding my mother’s heart, and her lifeless body lying at my feet. I was ecstatic. No more mother, and someone, or someTHING that felt the same about her. I hope we have the same takes on people; There are a lot of people I don’t like at school.

Felt more like comedy was the goal, which is not a bad thing. However, it does warrant either more comedic value, or less depending on which way you are attempting to spin the story.

I dont mean to be offensive by saying this because you might be a new writer and i dont want to crush your hopes but i felt this pasta wasnt creepy. I feel like we the readers should have gotten more involved in the story. You had a great start but the ending was super corny. I think that might have ruined the whole thing for me but good job and better luck with you next pasta.

“do you not like my elf? why that’s no trouble. I could care less” the man said lifting the elf off the table”the only problem is the elf doesn’t like you ether. why is this a problem? well… lets just say he get carried away in his pranks and punishments. and im sorry it had to be this way.”

Despite all the negative comments I think it’s good concidering it supposed to be a short story I think u could just go a little more detailed on [spoiler]how the mom died[/spoiler] or on the actual elf

This pasta had potential, but the ending was horrendous…

Of course! Why not make a Pasta based off the Christmas doll that scares the crap out of everyone?! And I think there was something wrong with the mom. A MURDERING elf? That is just creepy and wrong! The main purpose of Elf on the Shelf is to basically scare kids into being good. So it’s kind of ironic that the mom makes the elf a psycho killer. Just, oh my lanta!

Grow up, kid, being told to clean your room is not a good reason to write murder fantasies about your mom.

I laughed so much until i got to that ending. Really???
Mine are COMPLETE and pretty damn good, but they are waiting for approval or denial.
This was a shame, i was expecting a little more depth
