|Obsessive Love Letter|
Love Letters generally range from sweet to awkward. But occasionally, they're downright creepy. This usually occurs when a character gets love letters from an obsessive admirer. Typically, there's one creepy letter to start with, but as the recipient doesn't respond, it's followed by dozens more, all written individually and personalized. The creepiness of the letters can vary, from mild versions where the writer knows way too much about the recipient to extreme versions where the letters are filled with threats alongside the endearments, to anything in between. The one constant is that the letter will always creep the recipient out. Subtrope to Love Letter. See also Stalker with a Crush and Love Letter Lunacy.
