Aurora Woods Incident refers to a parody creepypasta in a similar vein to the Heaven Stairway Incident. Like “Heaven Stairway Incident,” Aurora Woods Incident is an offshoot of the Cover Yourself In Oil meme. It is based on an instructional four-panel trollface comic which shows the trollface character getting lost in the woods, leading to an event known as the “Aurora Woods Incident” of August 2021.
