The Slender Man.

Slender Man Sighting Title


Hello & Welcome...

Well after watching Xanderh's Lets play of the Slender Man game which if you haven't seen it already..
Click Here
So after watching it i thought i'd construct a post about everything to do with the 'Slender Man' so enjoy!


What is the Slender Man?

The Slender Man is a supernatural creature that has been described as appearing or has taken form as normal human being, but is described as being 8 feet tall wearing a black suit, as well as that he is said to have vectors or extra arms that are described to be as sharp as swords.
The creature is commonly known to stalk humans and and cause many dissapearences, it is also described to be a shadow creature who's faces appears to be missing.
The creature fits into many mythologies in legends from nations such as Germany and celts which brings up the possibility that he could be real. For example, he can see found in this ancient carving on wood named: 'Der Ritter' In mythology the Slender Man is actually trying to save you from a painful death by taking you to the under world early but is also known to stalk and kill its human. (The Picture Below Shows Der Ritter)

Possible Sightings

Two recovered photographs from the Stirling City Library blaze. Notable for being taken the day on which fourteen children vanished and for what is referred to as "The Slender Man". Deformities cited as film defects by officials. Fire at library occurred one week later. Actual photograph confiscated as evidence.

Sighting Number Two
Slender Man Sightings 2

The following quote is said to be connected to the photo above:
"we didn't want to go, we didn't want to kill them, but its persistent silence and outstretched arms horrified and comforted us at the same time...
-1983, photographer unknown, [ presumed dead ].


Extra Information

After a spree of building burnings from unknown causes, several deaths and a few surviving witnesses, it was gathered that the Slenderman has the following traits:

1) Slenderman will find interest in a victim for reasons unknown

2) It would then contact the victim, if it is a child, presenting itself as friendly

3) The adults he stalks have a common trait: they have all been through a terrible tragedy in their life, even if the tragedy was made by Slenderman directly

4) If an adult, it would stalk the victim for long amounts of time causing what is known as "Slender sickness" causing massive paranoia, nose bleeds, nightmares, hallucinations appearing to only the sick person, and many other dangerous symptoms.

5) Eventually, it would abduct the victim into nearby forest, where they would be killed.

6) In 'messy' cases, it may remove evidence of its existence by causing fire of their home, place of work, or school

    Alot of people documenting Slenderman... WHAT COULD GO WRONG?

    I would like to say this:

    Slenderman targets his victims by how much they know about him. You see, He goes by a policy of 'Ignorance is Bliss'. Meaning if you act like you don't know anything/Know very little about him, theres a greater chance of your survival.

    There are signs that let you know when Slenderman is around/following you. The first is sudden coughing fits, Coughing that comes and goes suddenly.
    The second is Memory problems. Slenderman is linked to memory problems of many of his victims.
    The third is Electrical Difficulties, meaning when your electrical devices start malfunctioning, for no good reason, then Slenderman is likely near you.
    The Fourth is writing, Whenever you find something that Slenderman/His minions wrote, it will have the O's being Crossed through with X's
    The Fifth is more along the lines of Figuring out who its too late for, If somebody you know starts popping pills after you've had an encounter with Slenderman, leave them. Its too late for them and if you stay, You're most likely going to have to face your friend when they work for Slenderman.

    Regarding weapons, Having a weapon will NOT help you in case you encounter Slenderman, He's too fast for you to hit and will most likely get pissed at you for attacking him. The best case is to leave one in the chamber, seeing as how its a less painful way to die.

    Once again thanks for your contribution :D

    I know a bit more about Slenderman... But I kinda' want to follow the policy of 'Ignorance is Bliss' Seeing as how I live next to a Forest area...

    But if you really want me to I can tell you more...

    - GangsterMonkey July 10, 2012, 8:41 pm
    Alright, I'll add on to the list...

    what are the X and O things usually written in?

    Ink? I don't know...
    - SuperPost July 11, 2012, 1:36 am
    lol, thanks, I was just wondering because I've seen that symbol all over my school written in black chalk
    - GothicRoze July 11, 2012, 4:00 pm
    I think it can be written in anything really...
    - SuperPost July 11, 2012, 5:27 pm
    Probably kids who know the myth or have seen the MarbleHornets series. Depending on how old you are it may just be the punk A in an O symbol.
    - Turtlestlker July 11, 2012, 6:02 pm
    There is a major flaw in this "ignorance is bliss" statement in which you have stated that the slenderman does is less likely to attack those who do not know much about him. Have you had a face to face conversation with him in which he has told you this? That's quite an amazing achievement, perhaps you have jumped off of a sky-scraper and began to fly as well?
    - Compliance July 14, 2012, 6:40 pm
    Actually, he has told me about it, just like how Jeff hates people who act like assholes to other people who just try to add onto things without harmless intention. and yes, I have jumped off a sky-scraper and flown. Its called a Hanglider...
    - SuperPost July 14, 2012, 7:36 pm
    Apparently, along with the ignorance is bliss, you seem to be ignorant to the fact that he was made up by Victor Surge as a part of a paranormal picture photoshop contest for Something Awful Forums. Also Slender Man could also have been inspired from Cabadath from the Chzo Mythos game series. In short HE IS MADE UP -_-
    - ra0922 July 15, 2012, 7:57 pm
    Erm, you DO realise that I'm just adding on to the list of 'facts' that make up the myth, not actually stating things that I know for certain...
    - SuperPost July 15, 2012, 10:43 pm
    Yep, now all of us will die

    Love that a post on the Something Awful Forums spawned all of this. For those who don't know the Slenderman was created to see who could make the most believable monster and post it on some paranormal forums along with a doctored picture and a background story, all of this is the result.

    i think its awesome that in this day and age a new horror story that is this interesting and creepy can be concocted

    Thank you so so so so much for referencing my video and creating a whole post from it :D. I'm glad you liked it even though it was kind of over the top... But still, awesome post.

    haha Thanks man :D

    I think this may be a repost...? I may be wrong, and Mods feel free to delete this comment if you deem it unnecessary. I made a post a few years ago about him:

    They're about the same topic, but different enough to both stay, in my opinion. You can never have too much Slendy.

    I have nycophobia so this stuff bugs me a lot. And with that said I will not be sleeping tonight.


    During the summer of 2003, events in the northeastern United States involving a strange, humanlike creature sparked brief local media interest before an apparent blackout was enacted. Little or no information was left intact, as most online and written accounts of the creature were mysteriously destroyed.
    Primarily focused in rural New York state and once found in Idaho, self proclaimed witnesses told stories of their encounters with a creature of unknown origin. Emotions ranged from extremely traumatic levels of fright and discomfort, to an almost childlike sense of playfulness and curiosity. While their published versions are no longer on record, the memories remained powerful. Several of the involved parties began looking for answers that year.

    In early 2006, the collaboration had accumulated nearly two dozen documents dating between the 12th century and present day, spanning 4 continents. In almost all cases, the stories were identical. I’ve been in contact with a member of this group and was able to get some excerpts from their upcoming book.

    A Suicide Note: 1964

    "As I prepare to take my life, I feel it necessary to assuage any guilt or pain I have introduced through this act. It is not the fault of anyone other than him. For once I awoke and felt his presence. And once I awoke and saw his form. Once again I awoke and heard his voice, and looked into his eyes. I cannot sleep without fear of what I might next awake to experience. I cannot ever wake. Goodbye."

    Found in the same wooden box were two empty envelopes addressed to William and Rose, and one loose personal letter with no envelope:

    "Dearest Linnie,

    I have prayed for you. He spoke your name."

    A Journal Entry (translated from Spanish): 1880

    "I have experience the greatest terror. I have experienced the greatest terror. I have experienced the greatest terror. I see his eyes when I close mine. They are hollow. Black. They saw me and pierced me. His wet hand. I will not sleep. His voice (unintelligible text)."

    A Mariner's Log: 1691

    "He came to me in my sleep. From the foot of my bed I felt a sensation. He took everything. We must return to England. We shall not return here again at the request of the Rake."

    From a Witness: 2006

    "Three years ago, I had just returned from a trip from Niagara Falls with my family for the 4th of July. We were all very exhausted after a long day of driving, so my husband and I put the kids right to bed and called it a night.

    At about 4am, I woke up thinking my husband had gotten up to use the restroom. I used the moment to steal back the sheets, only to wake him in the process. I appologized and told him I though he got out of bed. When he turned to face me, he gasped and pulled his feet up from the end of the bed so quickly his knee almost knocked me out of the bed. He then grabbed me and said nothing.

    After adjusting to the dark for a half second, I was able to see what caused the strange reaction. At the foot of the bed, sitting and facing away from us, there was what appeared to be a naked man, or a large hairless dog of some sort. Its body position was disturbing and unnatural, as if it had been hit by a car or something. For some reason, I was not instantly frightened by it, but more concerned as to its condition. At this point I was somewhat under the assumption that we were supposed to help him.

    My husband was peering over his arm and knee, tucked into the fetal position, occasionally glancing at me before returning to the creature.

    In a flurry of motion, the creature scrambled around the side of the bed, and then crawled quickly in a flailing sort of motion right along the bed until it was less than a foot from my husband's face. The creature was completely silent for about 30 seconds (or probably closer to 5, it just seemed like a while) just looking at my husband. The creature then placed its hand on his knee and ran into the hallway, leading to the kids' rooms.I screamed and ran for the lightswitch, planning to stop him before he hurt my children. When I got to the hallway, the light from the bedroom was enough to see it crouching and hunched over about 20 feet away. He turned around and looked directly at me, covered in blood. I flipped the switch on the wall and saw my daughter Clara.

    The creature ran down the stairs while my husband and I rushed to help our daughter. She was very badly injured and spoke only once more in her short life. She said "he is the Rake".

    My husband drove his car into a lake that night, while rushing our daughter to the hospital. They did not survive.

    Being a small town, news got around pretty quickly. The police were helpful at first, and the local newspaper took a lot of interest as well. However, the story was never published and the local television news never followed up either.

    For several months, my son Justin and I stayed in a hotel near my parent's house. After we decided to return home, I began looking for answers myself. I eventually located a man in the next town over who had a similar story. We got in contact and began talking about our experiences. He knew of two other people in New York who had seen the creature we now referred to as the Rake.

    It took the four of us about two solid years of hunting on the internet and writing letters to come up with a small collection of what we believe to be accounts of the Rake. None of them gave any details, history or follow up. One journal had an entry involving the creature in its first 3 pages, and never mentioned it again. A ship's log explained nothing of the encounter, saying only that they were told to leave by the Rake. That was the last entry in the log.

    There were, however, many instances where the creature's visit was one of a series of visits with the same person. Multiple people also mentioned being spoken to, my daughter included. This led us to wonder if the Rake had visited any of us before our last encounter.

    I set up a digital recorder near my bed and left it running all night, every night, for two weeks. I would tediously scan through the sounds of me rolling around in my bed each day when I woke up. By the end of the second week, I was quite used to the occasional sound of sleep while blurring through the recording at 8 times the normal speed. (This still took almost an hour every day)

    On the first day of the third week, I thought I heard something different. What I found was a shrill voice. It was the Rake. I can't listen to it long enough to even begin to transcribe it. I haven't let anyone listen to it yet. All I know is that I've heard it before, and I now believe that it spoke when it was sitting in front of my husband. I don't remember hearing anything at the time, but for some reason, the voice on the recorder immediately brings me back to that moment.

    The thoughts that must have gone through my daughter's head make me very upset.

    I have not seen the Rake since he ruined my life, but I know that he has been in my room while I slept. I know and fear that one night I'll wake up to see him staring at me.""

    For those who think slender man was created by a forum post a couple years ago. You are the ignorant ones... "Slender man" was created by the post, BUT he's actually based of an even older myth. He's based off "The dark man" or aka "The tell man". Honestly the slender man is allot more creeper version of them, but all in all the same.

    That is EXACTLY my stance on religion

    Yet there is more proof about Slenderman existing than God so......
