I've started commenting on other Slenderman type blogs. Not very many, just some that I think may be real and look like they really need help. I doubt that the people who write them will read any of them, or that they're even real people being followed by Slenderman, but still, I feel like I should say something. Not everybody will find this blog, or take the time to read it. I feel the need to give some advice. I'm tired of seeing people die, that's why I started this blog! I feel like something is shifting about all this, people are starting to take control (by the way have any of you seen what's happening with that Zeke guy who's the detective? So fucking badass! I don't care if it is fake, I just want to read a story where somebody shoots Slenderman. Him asking for the other blogs and stuff! Research finally people doing research! And him commenting on that girl's blog? She seems like somebody who is outliving Slenderman somehow, so I'd love to see them team up! She's a pouty high schooler who loves colours, he's a snarky detective who's lost his kind-of girlfriend, together they fight the ultimate evil! Block buster fucking movie. Watching this shit is pretty epic, but then it's probably all fake so it's sort of that sick sort of thing where the guy who lost his arm to a shark loves Jaws because he likes seeing the shark get killed).
Sometimes reading all this stuff is a little weird for me. It's like when you have a bad accident, and then watch people having the same accident again and again and again. It makes me remember stuff that I've buried far away in my mind. People loosing people, people being chased away from their homes, all that stuff that I've tried to make myself forget just so I can get to sleep at night. I find that a lot of these people tend to be men who are loosing girls they like.
That doesn't stir stuff up. At all. Yeah.
In any case I've seen a few people ask the same question over and over which is 'Why do people act normal when Slenderman isn't following them and then start to talk in code when they are?'
I feel like this is a 2 part question, the 1st part very simple, the 2nd part a little more complicated.
The 1st part's answer is because stuff is normal before Slenderman is following you. Even if you feel like your life is going out of control and bad stuff is happening to you before, nothing rivals Slenderman following you. You're whole life falls apart in a way you would never think it could when this stuff happens. And before that happens, even as stuff starts to get weird, you're life is still pretty normal. A weird feeling starts to form, but not too bad. Nothing most people can't deal with.
Then it all starts to get a lot shittier.
When Slenderman really starts to follow you, when you see him, you start to lose it. Slenderman is so out of the ordinary, so out of how people are suppose to view the world and what's in it, that seeing something like that (a tall guy with no face, you will, as they say, shit bricks, my friends) that some people lose it at that moment. And that's when Slenderman gets them. When you're trying to place Selnderman in your understanding of the world he takes control. People get hollowed out. He takes control of them, if only for a little while. It's how he interacts with the world. He takes people, he turns them from normal people into his puppets. Doesn't matter if this happens over a period of minutes or months, some people just can't take it.
And he takes them.
But people aren't always as cool with that as others. They try to fight him off, or a part of them that's still them does. Some people are only susceptible to it when they sleep they're so strong, but some people only have small pieces of themselves that are still them. And those people are pissed off.
Pissed off at Him.
As you would be at any being that's trying to take over your brain and make you into a meat puppet.
And that's where the codes come in. Our brains start to kick in, know they need to protect themselves and the messages they send to the people they want to save. They makes things into code so that He won't know, so that only them and the people who they're sending it to can read it. This sometimes backfires, as these people are already pretty far gone and the codes don't make much sense. It's easy to get frustrated with this shit. Even I do sometimes. I wish they could gather they're thoughts together the way they do with the none important stuff, but they can't and their brain takes over and make all this stuff complex so that it doesn't get found out.
It's easier to just say 'Go up high to the tower I made for you to live in until you get your shit together, it's safe there, here's where it is', but it's also a lot easier for Him to find you then.
They have to choose what is right and what is easy. And they, or the part of them that's still there, chooses what's right.
That's right I quoted Harry Potter!
I'm not all living on the streets and running from evil beings that are the embodiment of all we fear.
Ok you guys, the place I'm at has played the same Katy Perry song about 100 times now so I think it's time to leave. Will post tomorrow if I can. Things have been busy over here. Like I said something is happening and He knows. I have to be on my guard. I may post my email here if anybody needs me, or maybe my P.O. Box. For now I have to go before bad pop music hollows out my brain worse then Slenderman ever could.
