The Slender Man.
Hello & Welcome…
Well after watching Xanderh’s Lets play of the Slender Man game which if you haven’t seen it already..
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.

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.

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 ].
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
