The night in the city is never quite dark enough

In Chicago. It's cold as shit here but easier to stay warm and safe. I mostly hung out in the stairwells of buildings that you can get from their roofs until I realized that the trains here are, of course, elevated and most of time safe to be on. I'm a dumb ass. Now I mostly sleep on the trains because it's warm and there's a lot of people around, or hang out in the diner near here (though today I did see Him in an alley near here which I guess means I've been here for too long and need to change areas for a little bit. I'll miss Clarke's though). This city is different then New York. Both are overwhelming I guess, if I had more then a few minutes a day to think about stuff like that, but Chicago is huge. New York is plenty big, but not as spread out. New York is more tall, with lots of people in 1 place and lots of buildings all holding different hidden, secret, old things. Chicago is just vast. I took the train from 1 end to the other and ended up in the suburbs. They look pretty false though, no trees, no people, all the houses too small to have anybody actually live there with more then 1 other person, like they weren't made for families. It's like a bunch of runners put together a neighborhood. There aren't as many findable street kids either, though I've found some. Learning where everything is is harder then I thought it would be. I'm not from a place with a large transit system (or any transit system really) and learning all the different lines and everything seems like a waste of time at best. In general I just ride the lines closest to me that I know won't go underground right away.

I know people had stuff planned for the 21st and I guess it didn't really work. Maybe He's weaker, but I don't know. He's still here and from what I've heard Zero is gone. The hero thing isn't really my thing, as I've said in the past, but when somebody is that brave and that stupid they can do something like that it usually gets them killed, but I guess it's also pretty admirable. People ask me sometimes if I'll just run and never stop running and never try to fight and I say yes until we find something else to do, something that really works. I'm not really somebody who would try to find, or even has any idea what that could be but Zero was and it's pretty sad he's gone. I will say though a few people writing stories is not going to beat Him. I'm not for staging a coupe anytime soon, we need more information and we need more planning, but when and if we do it won't be by writing stories, at least not only by doing that. It will be a battle with whatever we've found works against Him and it will be bloody and it will be unpleasant and we won't come away from it unhurt. People ask me sometimes if any weapons work against Him (if I need to talk more about this I'll do an entry on it if people want it) and I say no.

Guns.

Knives.

Baseball bats.

They don't work on Him. The way he moves He can avoid all that and if He was that easy to kill somebody would have done it by now. We'll have to find something else if we find something at all. He doesn't even move on this plane of existence. Something that can't even kill a human everytime isn't going to kill Him. And if it can it will be something we haven't even thought of yet.

Mostly this 21st I thought about my brother. It was his birthday. He would have been 20. I wondered what he would have thought of me if he could see me now, and what he would have thought of this whole situation, and if he would have liked the people I liked who I had met on the road and disliked all the people I disliked. I wondered what he would have thought about the Hollowed and how they probably would have made him sad and he would have wanted to help them. I sat in the little house that protects the stairwell into an apartment building who's roof I was on from the snow and stuff and looked out it's little window and watched the white snow against the hazy black of the city night and wondered what he would have thought of the city. I fell asleep and had the same dream I always have and saw him and it felt even more real, yet more unreal then it ever had for some reason, him in that chair, so solid but so obviously impossibly there. Then I woke up and the night had finished and I checked the time and knew something had shifted.

I fucking hate that dream.

Now it's 2 days until Christmas. I was never too into Christmas. It's too commercial and there are too many people around and the music gets on my nerves. Even so to anybody who can still have a normal Christmas know they're rare and to enjoy it. And to people who can't, well know that at least you're still moving, still alive, and, even if we can't beat this thing right now, still able to sit and think about the world. Know that all the people who are gone are remembered and are still alive that way. I'm not too religious, or religious at all since all this started, but I think that's how it works. People die, but I guess they live on because we think about them. In all the stories we tell about them. Maybe that's how stories can help us. Less about beating Slenderman and more about all of us living normal lives. I don't know.

Since it's the holiday season I've decided to do entries on whatever people want (within reason). Got a question? Want to hear my thoughts on something? Just tired of me bitching and want to know what colours attract Slenderman already (none really that I can tell but he seems to go after the people in grey before anybody else when in a group)? Then ask! And as always leave questions and anything else in the comments and email if you have to. Now I'm gonna go sneak into a gym and take a much needed shower (time since last shower: 2 months, 5 days, 12 hours).

  5. Ah well, Christmas isn't that big of a deal, most of us enjoy the moments when people aren't playing the same old songs over and over until your ears bleed from the insanity.

  6. i have been following your blog since it began
    i never felt the interest to look into commenting until now
    about a month ago...
    i started to see HIM down the street from my house
    and then again at my window(i live on the second floor of my house, his body is up to that height)
    and he looks at me
    i have since found that cats and dogs will assist me and knowing his presence
    my thought was reassured with K-OS talking on here.
    in recent time
    i have also seen his followers
    just recently there was a structure fire in the town i live in
    and there was no sign of a true cause to the fire
    they determined it was arson...but have no idea what caused it
    this reassured my thoughts.
    at night i do hear the barking of dogs, but not my own
    and my cats are at a heightened alert when i know he is nearby
    as of recently has entered my house, and i see him in my room, he does not harm me, he looks at me, and then the next day, he is gone.
    i've not found any need at all to hide from him
    but i have also seen him
    at the houses of my friends
    is it possible
    i may have passed him to them by contact?
    i have not once mentioned him to them
    i also wonder
    might he be after someone nearby that building? it was a party store.
    and why won't he attack me?
    i have recorded videos of him. without any altering to the footage, as well as taken pictures.
    but he seems to erase them...is he smarter than you think?
    i have also awoken to papers posted on my computer with the operator symbol on it, and the next day, wherever i have set that letter, there is a pile of ash.
    my ultimate question and curiosity is this:
    is it possible, he will act as a guardian to some? but not demand servitude?

  7. I like Christmas, personally. It was just about the only time my family, who bickered more than the Senate, would calm down and act like an actual family. But I've always been agnostic more than anything.

    Personally, I want to hear more of your stories, about people you've met, those cautionary tales that tell us 'don't do this or that' and such. I liked those in your early blog posts...probably because everyone from the South loves stories.

  8. M, I've got news.

    The town of Centralia, Pennsylvania. This place is overrun with Hollowed.

    There are hundreds of Slendermen in the trees. Hundreds. Last night was terrifying.

    This could be a collective of them. I'm not positive, and I'm sure as hell not going back.
    I'll keep you posted.

    And on s lighter note, Heppy Holidays, M. Try to take it easy.

    ReplyDelete
  9. M- You're a wealth of information. I'm not completely sold on the fact that he's not entirely physical. I'm not one to work as a team but I'll do whatever it takes to get him out of my business. He's already caused enough attention as it is.

    Until Next Time.

  10. I'm with Dylan, the first ones were cool.

    My Christmas is gonna be weird.We're having it on the day after Christmas.Plus this is the last year were going to have it as a family.2 of my grandparents are likely to die this year, along with my aunt.Merry Christmas M, and i hope your holidays are peaceful.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I thought of another way I might be helpful. This idea is a bit abstract, but here it is.

    I know Slendy isn't some Freddy Kruger, but he does seem to work through dreams to an extent. Over the last 6 months or so, before I even heard of Slender Man, I've trained myself in dream recall for the purposes of lucid dreaming. For anyone who doesn't know, lucid dreaming is the ability to recognize that you are dreaming while dreaming, and exerting complete control over the dream environment. I'm going to try this in hopes to at least learn more about Slender Man, and who knows? It could be a useful weapon.

    I'm off to bed as soon as I post this. I'll let you know if anything comes of it. I've had two experiences so far now that I think were dreams, but could have been something more...

    Anyway, we'll see what comes of it. Sorry for the long post. :)

  12. Any In detail effects that the Slenderman has on electronic equipment would be beneficial. We would to the Fieldwork ourselves but, as you said, it is the holiday season. It's kind of hard to get work done. - Binary

    ReplyDelete
  13. CuriosityKilledTheKat - you have a very unusual situation. Who did you dreamed you killed?

    UlrycZ - you sound like my brother. I guess I just don't get it.

    Rakoa - Thanks. I would, as I said, stay away from all this, but even so I don't think dreams will help us. At least not fighting in them.

    InPlainSight - No it's not possible. Get moving or you and the people around you will die.

    Dylan - Yeah the only part of Christmas I really liked was hanging out with my brother. More stories will come, just been hard recently since most of the people I've met recently have died because of me.

    JustJamie - I keep hearing about places that are being overrun. I wonder why that's happening. Keep me posted. Thanks.

    OnePoundOfFlesh - Thanks. I think He's physical, just not like we are.

    Jazz - That sounds rough. Try to have an ok time I guess. And yeah I'll put more stories in next time just haven't really had time to.

    Binary - Ok.

    K-OS - I do like the Eurythmics.

  14. M...
    Please don't be so hard on yourself, okay?

    ReplyDelete
  15. I agree with Dylan. I don't know the exact circumstances, but it is human nature to look to others in times of distress (and I say Slender Man may cause a bit of distress). He kills the people he kills, not you. You aren't responsible, okay? :)

  16. think he was a runner, not so sure.
    i'm out, in a house in......canada. the place is empty cause of the holidays. what do i do?

  17. Writing stories and futilely wishing Der Ritter away will not halt his purpose. Neither will utilizing the Devil's machinations. In the continuation of the spirit of the dearly departed Jay (a secular man with a powerful God-given purpose behind him), I will continue my own research, published upon my own blog.

  19. Kat, you're in Canada? Where, exactly? I only ask because I'm in Canada, too. Above post removed due to horrible typo.

    ReplyDelete
  20. The Apostle Paul- Der Ritter is not Slenderman. Der Ritter is the knight. So saying that "wishing Der Ritter away" implies that they are being harrassed by a knight, and that is clearly not the case. Try to do a little research next time.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Jazz - You are correct, and I apologize. What I should have been referring to is "Der Grosse Mann". However, your implication that I have not "done my research" is terribly mistaken.

    I am sure that you cannot kill him through conventional means, whether by using a knife cloaked in Satan's power or by slashing at him futilely with a sword or by shooting at him with prototypical laser weapons a la Star Wars.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I have heard Slender Man referred to as Der Ritter, which is odd, since that does mean the knight.

    ReplyDelete
  23. The Apostale Paul- So what exactly is your business here? Are you just another hallowed, a random follower of Him, or some nerd trying to be original with your trolling? Either way, you should leave. They have been told multiple times that He cannot be killed (which i'm sure He can) and they do not need you to repeat it.

    Rakoa- People assume things without looking into it. I admit , it is pretty funny.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Was stuck with a curious thought earlier this week while re-reading your first entry...

    If Slender Man truly is a fictional character that was made real by the collective unconscious, would it be possible for the same unconscious to manifest a fictional weapon into reality designed to combat him?

    Much the same has been achieved before with your work on the Operator Symbol. Have you heard of anyone else trying this?

    ReplyDelete
  25. rakoa- won't say, sorry.
    took some papers and read em, not safe to say. just ontario. thats all. will be moving soon in a few days. i need advice soon, the tree outside the window is.....acting strange.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Dylan - Thanks.

    Rakoa - Yeah but when people trust you tp help them and you don't you can't help but feel a little responsible.

    CuriosityKilledTheKat - Make a mask and put it on the back of your head, put operator symbols all over you and try to make a run for it. If anything get up on your roof.

    The Apostle Paul - Jay was a murderer. Are you?

    zelphest - People have brought this up before and it would take a lot of work to do something like that. A lot of people really believing in it. That would be hard. And I didn't really do anything with the operator symbol just figured out it worked I guess.

    ReplyDelete
  27. What would happen if someone nuked old Skinnybuns? Not very practical, but it kills damn near everything, including the Antichrist if Stephen King's to be believed. Of course, when it comes to the Slender Man, blatant deus ex machinas aren't exactly common. It's a nice theory though, right?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hey, M. Just wondering how you could convince someone who thinks they're safe to run?

    Also, going south made me safe. At least, I think I'm safe. Any logic in that, or am I grasping at straws?

    Thanks, dude.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Hanna - I don't know but it would probably hurt the earth a lot more then it'd be worth.

    Kim - You wait until they see Him and then you run I guess. Just keep telling why you know they're unsafe. How do you think you're safe? Moving makes you safer for longer but you need to keep doing it.

  31. If you were in a church would He be able to go in there?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Churches do not stop the Slender Man, that much we know, though I think holy water had a minor effect on him.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I guess he would be able to get in. It seems kinda... wrong, though. Hard to imagine. The holy water thing is just... not suprising.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Sarah - You have to get out of their. did you put the symbol up?

    Clover869 - If you're not high up like in any building yeah.

    Rakoa - Holy water doesn't have an effect on Him, it's just water He doesn't like.

  38. I did have quite a lot to drink that night, didn't I? Might have had a bit of a toke with the boys from the lobby as well. Don't do drugs much, but, it's Christmas, right? Or after it at least. Always an occasion.

    Of course, I have read the rest of your blog. Extremely interesting read. My wishes are with you for the New Year. And if I see anything on this Slender Man character while perusing you and the others' exploits, well, you are the authority on this subject. ;) I shall keep you posted.

  41. M- I completely agree. He has to have some physical attributes. How do you feel about the possibility of there being more than one of Him?
    Everything in the universe comes to an end. We just have to find his.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Thats something I wanted to ask you too actually, M. Some blogs suggest or say that there is more than one Slender Man. Do you believe this?

    ReplyDelete
  43. OnePoundOfFlesh - I think there's only 1 but He can be in more then 1 place in a way I don't understand. Yeah I just don't know what that way will be.

  45. M I want you to remember this quote

    "Fairy Tales are more then real. not because they prove dragons exsist, but because they prove that dragons can be beaten"

    Slenderman is (not in a literal sense) a dragon.

    And dragons can be beaten

    ReplyDelete
  46. Damn right, JAB; as a matter of fact that quote's up on my blog. Here's the question though; how?

    I've got a theory on my blog, but it isn't very well-developed, and for all we know could be completely wrong. Therefore, until we find the way to slay this dragon, the only option left open is to keep running. Which is what M does best, and what for now everyone under immediate threat by it should do (if things get more dangerous).

    ReplyDelete
  47. CuriosityKilledTheKat - Good, keep moving. don't stay in the car when you sleep or stay stil, you're not high enough. Sometimes we have to do things that aren't right.

    JABgamer - Yeah. Need to figure out how to do that 1st.

    Scott - Exactly. Just have to keep going at this point. It's hard but it's better then death.

    ReplyDelete
  48. M, my friend, who I'll call EyesWideOpen, he's going hunting for him tomorrow. He's taking a knife with an operator symbol on each side. He wants to find out if It can be harmed.

    Any advice to give him, besides he's stupid for going? Because if he dies, I'm taking over our operation to stop Slendy.

    ReplyDelete
  49. @JABGamer - Remember what happened to the last person who believed in that quote

    I can't run, I'm stuck where I am and it's only getting worse, I need insight.

    I have knowledge, all the knowledge I can possess and skills to keep myself alive, but I just need you to check it out, give me an honest analysis.

  55. By December 2012 there will be hundreds upon hundreds of blogs made to let Him be known.

    Then He strikes. Fear for Him will be great, but belief in Him at the same time will be none. People will cry for help, but no one shall hear them, for there were the liars before them.

    The possible dates are December 21, His weak point, and December 23, two days afterwards.

    December 22 is His safest time. It is then He strikes. On December 23, His era begins.

    December 21, 2012 is our last chance to kill Him. We must act now, so that by then, we will have weakened Him, rather than to have Him stronger than we could ever imagine.

    Citizen Anonymous - will check soon.

    Gabe - Thanks. Glad to have helped.

    Zeke - Who did? I'm getting tired of hearing places aren't safe. I don't think anywhere is really safe from Him. In any case guess we're both in unsafe places. Haha

    ReplyDelete
  60. M: Hey man, good to see you are still on the run. I just wanted to drop a line and let you know that for the most part Jersey seems pretty calm if you don't count those HYBRID kids. (Any idea if they are for real yet??) I extended an offer of assistance to them but I have yet to get a response. Damsel says they have been pretty ill and we all know what that means, but it could just be the season too... not gunna jump to conclusions I guess.

    Like I said, its pretty calm here. Maybe the things that already lurk around put Him off of his game and makes the area a bit of bad juju for him. Anyone who has been out in the Pines knows what I am talking about..has heard it. "JD" definitely is still roaming around out there, but he might be in one of his 10 year lulls. A few years back he snatched two pittbulls out of a junk yard nearby. Snapped the 3/8" link chain off in the middle. They only found a bit of blood and fur, no tracks. ..err...sorry...got to rambling on a subject that doesn't even really apply.

    Anyhow, Its pretty calm here if you discount the shit that already goes bump in the night, but that stuff seems content to stick with the small woodland creatures rather than messing with the bigger game.

    Let me know if you head near this area, i'll give you a hand if I can, but my current local probably would put you off your comfort zone as I am surrounded by woods on 2 sides. Again, no signs of anything yet and no Operator symbols in town tho I have been thinking of getting it inked on the back of my neck as a precautionary measure. Preemptive strike and all. I'm pretty close to Atlantic City or Philadelphia if you feel more comfortable in the city.. AC has the water near by too, might be a better choice.

    Also, i'm curious as to a reoccurring theory, have you heard of anyone using old metal to ward him off? Railroad steel and whatnot?

    Keep in touch~

  62. Cant seem to get all my thoughts into one post. Have you ever known of anyone who was taken before the madness hit them? You mentioned your brother had been scrawling on his walls for a long time etc..

    I'm just curious, perhaps the reason why He hasn't taken you yet...why he only moves you.. is because he CANT take you yet. You haven't snapped. Your mind isn't weak enough to allow him to cause you harm. Shandi lasted as long as she did because there was still a part of her that was sane. Once she finally gave in and submitted is when he took her, but not you. You were still too strong. His touch railed you, but it didn't break you. Maybe the dreams are also part of that. Playing on your fear and guilt.

    I want you to remember something M. Elizabeth wasn't your fault. She gave up. She knew you were coming for her and she gave up. Maybe she is still running, and I hope she is, but if she isn't it is on her, not you.

    I don't know...maybe I am just rambling now. But my theory does seem to hold a little water. It explains why people like you and Zeke are still out there.

    I'll post more if I think of it.

    Take everything with a grain of salt.

  65. Year(s) have passed. I am no closer to finding an answer(s?). The pain is so hard. I am still ignorant, and yet still every day/hour/month/year I hurthurthurthurthurt. I am so weak.

  66. M, please get in touch with Josh Rallus over on Youtube somehow. He and his friends had an extremely close encounter with Him and one of them seems like he's being hallowed. You're practically an authority on all of this, maybe he'll listen to you.

  67. I haven't posted in awhile, only because there has been nothing worth posting about. Now, though, I think there is. If you recall my idea of using dreams, I have some results. Since I started trying, I haven't had any dreams involving him, which I had been having before. The creepy coincidences stopped, and now I don't think about him at nights usually, and when I do the thoughts are not accompanied by dread. There is no reason for this sudden change, other than the fact that I tried to use lucid dreaming.

    I think that he might be afraid, or at least unsure. As soon as I started trying to use dreams, he just left me alone before he had a chance to go beyond the "creep the hell out of you" phase to the "Look, look, here I am!" phase. I would suggest that you read up on lucid dreaming and try doing what I did, using dreams against him. It would seem that he has completely backed off. :)

  69. This man, you've been talking about. I've seen Him before. I know who He is. He's affected my life for so long. Now that I'm back in this house, it's starting again. I had a dream last night. I keep getting moved around, which is impossible because I remove my leg (it's fake; I'm not ashamed of it) when I go to sleep. It's been getting often. And my internet keeps getting faulty on top of all that.

    I saw Him a few days ago, maybe a week, in my therapist's building. Is he after me?

    Tomorrow, I'm going through my attic and through the papers and pictures we got from the Royal Air Force, where my brother worked. I need to figure this out.

  70. Is it really worth it just running your whole life? To never be anything but scared? If I was in your situation which I might very well be soon I would just take the easy way out.

  71. i sleptb two hours yesterday before the nightmares began. I am so tired. the nightmares are worst as the pain, i think the pain is physical but the dreams oh god god god I think I'm going insane. i probably already am.

    I need to focus. My grammar is already suffering. it's embarrasing i need to focus focus. I'm learning as fast as i can but is that enough the knowewledge is beginning to destroy me

    I need to go deeper, need to keep KNOWING.

  72. Hey there dude. I'm looking for someone to talk to, calm my nerves and all that jazz.

    I was pulled into this crap by MarbleHornets, but I knew it was fake.

    And then i read this. I fear my mind might be splintering from the overpowering intensity of just how bat shit insane this is. I don't think i am being followed, but I'm keeping a look out just in case.

    Keep thinking i see Him, but i know hes not actually there. Just my mind fucking with me. I'm sure you know the routine.

    But, back to my original point: I need someone to talk to, and you seem to have stuff figured out pretty well. So if you have the heart to help me out, i would much appreciate it.

    My email is on my profile here.

  75. So I take it you're the big shot guy around here (heh)? You seem to have a large quantity of groupies, which speaks for itself.

    Jesus, and all these kids asking for help- how the fuck do they not know yet? Get your shit and run. How difficult is that to understand people?

    Man, it's when I see things like this that I really fear for the intelligence of the future generations. Common sense seems to be lost these days which is deadly in the situation that /every single person/ on this page seems to be in. Shit- how did this many people learn about it? Has that much really changed over the years? Guess I should have tried to keep up with the times.

    Nice to meet you M, or whatever the fuck your name is. You seem like a nice enough guy. It's good to see someone who knows what they're doing for a change.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Hey, M, been lurking a while, and I'm just curious...have the rules "changed" at all? I mean, you're a great guy and all, and I love what you're doing, but I think you're the only person I've seen who thinks that getting up high actually does something.

    So do you stand by your rules, or have they changed some?

    ReplyDelete
  77. J - I thought a lot of them were known to be dead or missing.

    JustJamie - Good! Stay strong and keep moving.

    Aynon - I'm in Chicago which is pretty far from New Jersey now but it's good to know that area is safe. I always heard it was nice there (besides, you know, the woods everywhere). I don't know if I believe in the urban myth stuff there but either way calm is always a good thing to be. I don't think metal works no. I've known a lot of people who have been taken or killed before going batshit. People get the notebooks (which my brother and I had and have), but that doesn't mean they're completely gone. I think people are stronger then some people, but I don't know if I'm 1 of them. Shandi was really strong, which is why it took her so long to die. As for Elizabeth and all that I'll just say I had a responsibility I didn't take care of, and it's cost people their lives. But enough about my crippling emotional pain, I think that yes people have different way of dealing with things which makes them stronger or weaker but what those are all the time I can't say.

    Backslash - And who are you? Because I've seen Him.

    Zeke - Something's been changing for a while. Need to figure out what it is. Also I think I'm safer in the trains, which is weird. Maybe something to do with speed?

    David - Calm down and collect your thoughts if you still have them. Where are you and what's happening?

    newzaber - I'll look into it.

    NOOC - Get moving.

    Zoriax - Then they'd be an asshole and need to be stopped. But just telling and spreading the story doesn't mean people will be followed. They need to believe and luckily most people don't.

    Tony - I don't know if my hair is quite long enough for me to have groupies. People ask for help because what the fuck else are you suppose to do when you see a guy with no fucking face staring at you. Thanks for the compliments I think. If I may be so bold I think I must ask though, who the fuck are you?

    Kekyll - Sort of. I mean the rules are always being tested and as I've been running have changed and grown. I think that they work on a very fundamental level that of course can be changed depending on whether or not certain other things are happening. But I mean the rules are basic guidlines that make you safer. I may talk some more about this in the next entry.

  78. ... I am M. When you read this, it is likely i have already started moving.

    I don't know where I am going, but the point is that I am moving, right?

    Also, this is a sure fire way to make sure my family safe?

    ReplyDelete
  79. Aw, you don't give yourself enough credit buddy, anyone can have groupies if they put their mind to it.

    What the fuck are they supposed to do? I don't know, run? You seemed to figure that out pretty easily and it's common sense and human nature when faced with a predator. It's not rocket science. Get yourself away before you go asking yourself, "Hm, I wonder what I should do?" But it seems everyone here likes to sit around and wait for someone to tell them what to do. C'mon kiddies, you all like to think you know everything, right? Well now's your chance to prove that your not just some under appreciated teenage nobody! Think for yourself- like you do when you disobey your parents, hehe!

    You should just take the compliment, they're good for improving your self esteem.

    As for who I am, I think I said my name was Tony, but maybe I should call myself "T" because so many people seem to be going by the letters of the alphabet. I admit it does look dangerous- radiates mystery and the promise of a good time. In all seriousness, I guess I could say I'm like you. Except middle aged and a bit more ready to leave people who hold me back and get me caught.

    I have to guess by your tone you don't exactly care for my attitude. Not may people do, so don't feel bad. I like you though, kid. You're smart. Smart keeps you alive. Make sure not to let yourself get soft and let other people become the reason you potentially die.

    ReplyDelete
  80. All right, thanks for that reply. I'm just worried that you're gonna stick to rules that may or may not be true anymore. I mean, you DID think that the trees were a shelter for a while. It'd be a pity to see you killed just because your faith in your own rules makes you rusty.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I'm going to start out by saying: I'm not Running, so that's not what I'm asking.

    But I DO still wish to ask you something.

    The Operator Symbol, I've seen alot of conflicting information about this. Just what are the effects on him YOU see when you put the Operator Symbol up? Are you sure it's not some kind of...Placebo Effect? It could null his effects by merely having people believe that it shall.

    (Before you shoot me down for ignorance or something, the Placebo and Nacebo Effects can do some astounding things to the body and mind, so I'm asking for your opinion.)

    Thank you, Good Luck,

  82. NOOC - Yes. If you move and stay up high you're good for now. You can protect the people you know by getting as far away from them as you can and not talking to them.

    Tony - You know I use to have a school guidence councilour just like you. When people would come in with actual problems he would just say 'why don't you get your kids off meth?' like it was that easy. Like fighting big things just takes 1 thing. Like it was easy to do. People need to know how to run and what's safe. Yeah running is obvious but even that's not enough and they need to learn how to do it. The councilar also use to do this thing where he'd sort of insult you by commplimenting you like 'Well there Mr. Slinsky your hair looks much better today then yesterday heheh.' I fucking hated that. He was also a liar, like I'm pretty sure you are.

    Jekyll - No problem. They're very basic rules so they've proven to work a few times. Also the thing about running from Him is, when sometimes doesn't work, you realize it pretty fast. Also sorry I spelled your name wrong before. Was being followed by this weird van and not paying attention.

    Ava - He thinks it's a face I think so he doesn't attack, it's sort of like wearing a mask. It doesn't stop Him really, just makes Him think he's stopped I think. I don't really know how it works to be honest, just know that it does.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Y'know funny enough, so did I, back in teenage land when life was easy and I wasn't running. In fact, I'm pretty sure most teenagers experienced the famous, "Come Back Another Day Adult". You should never trust the school guidance councilor, kid. They aren't payed enough to give a shit about anything that's happened to you.

    And I'm not sayin' they shouldn't come to you for help. But they /shouldn't/ ask you what to do when he's standing in the room watching them. It should be obvious by this point.

    Slinsky? Kid, you givin' information about yourself away? I sure hope not. And giving backhanded compliments is what I do, MnM. You want a full fledged description of how well you've succeeded, you're looking at the wrong person. Although, just because I don't say things that you like doesn't make me a liar, kiddo. I have no reason to lie to a bunch of people I don't even know. What's the point in that? It's much more fun when I actually meet them in person, heh.

    Everyone's got a story, kid. Just because I'm not willing to cough one up and offer it to you as a means of defending myself and solidifying my statements, doesn't mean everything I say is a complex trap in order to cause' you and every one of your follower's downfall. Honestly, how do you know if half of these people aren't lying to you and trying to make you slip and fall? You don't. You just gotta roll with the punches and pray people are on your side and not waiting for an opportunity to back stab.

    This, of course, is why I like to travel alone.

    I see how I probably look like some kinda "bad guy". And I'm not gonna say I'm a "good guy". I don't really deserve to call myself that. I've done a lot of things no one here will like, but hell if I'm gonna let myself become that things butt buddy.

  84. Hey M, I've got a question. We know that the Operator symbol can be used to distract Slenderman for certain periods of time. What if, however, it was carved onto a weapon, such as, say, a baseball bat? Would it have any special effect against Slenderman, or would it simply be a regular weapon?

  93. Greetings, M. I stumbled upon your blog today (Random Google searches, indeed), and I must say I am intrigued. This "Slender man" that you claim is following you and others appears similar to a hallucination I keep experiencing. I've also noticed some other things mentioned on here that seem close to what is going on around me.

    If you have time, check out my blog and tell me what you think. I don't think I'm in danger, but the similarities between my experiences and things discussed in this blog are too many to not mention.

  95. It's nice to see someone helping these poor people out. You're advice is amazingly helpful, although I'm not to sure if my friend and I can run now.

    But I'm not here for that.

    You seem to be the most experienced person when it comes to this creature. Do you happen to know why he targets certain people? Does he target people randomly or has some sort of system?

    He's not necessarily targeting my friend or I yet, but he does seem to be targeting my friend's mother.

  100. M.
    I don't know if you're still alive.
    I recently sent you a gmail, but I don't know if it got to you.
    You may even be dead now. I'm not so sure anymore.
    But I want to get my message straight. For everyone that's got caught up in this mess.
    Humans need to let go of their pride. They need to let their story die for once.
    I finally realize what you meant in your earlier posts about when you said, "You are the narrator."
    Even if it's not the correct meaning. . .
    We need to use the Philip Phenomenon to destroy Slender Man. We need to start writing blogs and possibly create vlogs of destroying Him. If we can get enough people to believe in this, in one way of destroying Him (possibly the Iron method that was suggested much earlier) then we can stop him. The people that created him on Something Awful need to open their eyes and realize the mistake that they've made. If they don't open their eyes soon, worse things are going to happen, and more people are going to die. Slender Man will keep getting stronger from the bloggeres/vloggers who are too stuck up and think that this is all some sort of joke. The people that are now runners.
    I hope that any runners out there who are reading this can come up with a solution to finally concluding this nightmare. If you do. . . thank you, and tell me, so that I can help in any way. As much as I loved the Something Awful Slender Man from when I first started. . .
    . . .I pray that this will work.
    . . .I also pray that I will not become a runner due to commenting on this blog and wrapping myself up in this problem.
    Thank you for reading.

The most I can do is give you words of wisdom. As for M. . . his last comment was put up exactly 10 days ago. So much could have happened in that time, I'm not sure anymore. But I'm hoping the best for him. I hope his fate was not terrible.

  104. I never met Zeke I know him only from his blog. I'm sorry for misunderstanding. I just wrote to Zeke yesterday to ask for help (some tips,anything). After posting my comment on Zeke's blog i felt "His" presence. "He" didn't show up but I knew he was somewhere near...
    Anyway I'm fine now "He" left i guess... If someone can give me some informations that can help please do so. Once again sorry for misunderstanding.

  105. I think that's how we all know him I guess when it comes down to it. I've felt His presence now and then, and I can agree with you, it's not a pleasent feeling.
    If you ever see him, run. And keep me updated so that I know if you become a runner or not. And no prob for the misunderstanding, this entire world is a mess right now with Him on the loose.

  112. Ok, so I have a question.

    You've established pretty well that keeping high is a good idea, but what about low? Structures such as subways and some parking lots can be under ground. So, how does he react to those? Does he treat it normally, or is he unable to grasp the concept of people being underneath him in the same way that he can't think they'd be taller?

    ReplyDelete
  113. I don't think we need to over react like this. Yes, M hasn't posted in a little while, but when you're running from the freakin' Slender Man they can't be that many opportunities to do so. And even without Mr Creepy, there are plenty of reasons as to why he wouldn't be able to post for awhile. Until we get some confirmation that somethings wrong, lets just have some faith in our good ol' red-headed buddy, eh?

    ReplyDelete
  114. You know, I've read so much on this 'tulpa' theory, and there is one thing I keep on wondering.

    If we as a group managed to *think* him into existence, or whatever, can't we simply un-make him?

    We all believe, we all *think* that he's gone, That he'll never bother us again.

    Perhaps thats why he comes for all those who know what he is. He's afraid of what they can do, and wants them to be silenced before they can try to stop them.

    That is, assuming he *is* in fact a Tulpa, and not simply some eldritch abomination in a form that our little minds can wrap around without us going completely stark raving mad in an instant.

    One of the running concepts of every blog, every story, every journal, is that knowing about him, that believing in him, makes him come for you.

    Is that it, then? Is belief our weapon? Is it his weapon? I dunno.

    M said once before, clap your hands if you believe. Perhaps in order to drive him away, we have to clap our hands and believe he's gone. Or believe he's dead. Or simply that he's not a threat.

    It brings to mind a movie I saw, called "Merlin". (Spoiler alert, like you give a damn.)

    The villan of the movie was one of the 'old gods', based around faeries and magic. They ultimately defeated her by 'forgetting' about her. Turning their backs on her and refusing to believe in her, no matter how much she raved, or tried to hurt them.

    He hunts, but mostly for children. Only going after an adult after he knows too much. Why would that be? Children are harder to convince to disbelieve in something. Told that magic isn't real, a child will forget upon watching a magician do his work. Told that there is no such thing as the bogeyman, or a monster in the closet, as soon as the lights go out, it comes out, at least in the child's mind.

    It also seems to be one of the things that has not yet been tried.

    Perhaps a blog that tells a fictional tale of Him, and how he is utterly destroyed. If enough of us believe, perhaps he shall be.

    Regardless, ignore my ramblings if you wish. I've a headache and simply wanted to theorize and think aloud.

  115. People have tried the Tulpa effect theory. What was it called, the "Core Theory"?

    Not sure how it panned out.

    If I recall correctly, they made him a little weaker. I haven't been keeping up with what's happening, I prefer to be ignorant about these things so it won't happen to me, but it draws me in. Hopefully, my luck continues.

    ReplyDelete
  116. If it makes him weaker, why not continue to do it? Perhaps if it gets weak enough, we could simply put a bullet in its brain. Head. Whatever the hell it has.

  118. The only hole I can see in the whole tulpa theory is this; why would he kill those who know about him? I'd think that the more people who know about him the better for him.
    Think about it this way; if he only exists because people believe he exists, then he is slowly killing himself. He just keeps hunting people who know about him ,until there is nobody left to believe in him. Poof, bye bye Slender Man. I don't think it holds up.
    Unless, of course, he isn't killing people that disappear...or isn't a tulpa, but something else.

    ReplyDelete
  119. How can we know what it wants, or doesn't want. What if it wants to die? All we know of it is conjecture, and what the original story tells us. What if it is trapped here, and wishes to be free?

    And even then, just simply because people stop believing in him, might not mean that it will particularly stop existing. It might require us to destroy it, but to do so, we'd have to make a way *to* destroy it.

    ReplyDelete
  120. Touché. The motives of the unknowable are unknowable. All we know is the actions it is taking, and we have to roll with the punches, striking back when we can, however we can.

    ReplyDelete
  121. @Rakoa Personal opinion here is that killing us keeps the community scared. Every time we lose someone, its more fear and despair created. If it is a tulpa, then let's say it kills 1 out of every 5 it stalks. That leaves plenty of people alive to keep it going as well as give it whatever kind of emotional response its looking for.

  122. I have a question... have there been any reports of the old man outside of the USA or Canada? If not, do you think there's a way he could be... confined, for lack of a better word, to North America?

    Or has the fact that I'm now aware of him doomed my entire continent?

  123. Sorry Derby, there doesn't seem to be any way to stop it from hopping continents.

    Most I can say is follow the rules laid out here if shit goes bad. Personally, I maintain a healthy amount of belief that whatever it is, cannot touch me. Seems to work so far.

  130. Last contact from M was on January twenty first.

    That's seventeen days since we last had contact with him.

    I hate to be a downer here guys, but seventeen days is an awful long time to have vanished.

    Most I suppose we can hope for is that he cannot either locate an internet signal, he's unable to reach a computer, or he is still alive, just having to move too quickly to stop and write.

  131. He's gone 21 days without contact before. I'm...sure he's okay...

    The electricity stunt was Ava, and from what I hear, it actually worked.

  132. Guess I'm just a pessimist.

    I just realized how close to the woods my house is.

  135. What do we do if M is truly gone? If even M can fall before this, someone who's spent so much of his life running and teaching others how to survive through this madness.

    What can we do?

  136. @ Anna; I have some research gathered on my blog, you can find it here.

    Also, M, are you still here? We really need to know if you're okay.

    ReplyDelete
  137. @JediZero: I doubt M is truly gone. For now, we keep an eye out for him and try our best to remain vigilant. If he is gone, and again I doubt it, then we keep going... It's what we do. M would do the same.

    @Scott: Thank you, that'll be a lot of help.

    M, please keep safe. Don't worry if you can't contact us, but please be safe.

  138. M, I swear to god if you're out there, then please, let us know. We're all worried to death here, and hoping that you're alive. The winter must be hard for you, I admit. And it must be even harder to get to an Apple Store when you're being chased by what could possibly be the worst demon in this entire world for us human beings. But please, even if you only have 5 minutes to type, use those 5 minutes to write a comment and tell us you're alright. Even a simple "Hi." would be enough for us.

  139. Can anyone fill me in on what has been happening since mid-Dec. 2010? I have a two month gap in my memory and there are a hell of a lot of slenderblogs to follow.

    ReplyDelete
  140. Does the lost child want answers? You seek solace in fools who cannot even assist themselves? Hark! Follow the path to my log. Your answer lies there, Little Prey.

    ReplyDelete
  141. Goodbye, M... I never knew you. If you still live... just.. say somehing....

    ReplyDelete
  142. M... If you are out there... then you have to know... Hes in Europe... England to be exact. I'm glad I found your blog... I've considered running to London. Around here theres mostly trees and stonecircles... I used to run around those trees all the time and now they just hide a shadowy figur but I cant just leave. I dont have the money to leave! And I still have family. =/ M your blog helps curb my paranoia

    ReplyDelete
  143. So this is The Tutorial Black Leaf spoke of? I see, thank you for laying out the rules of survival while bring hunted by this, "Slender Man". I hope you're alright, and I do my best under what you've taught. Again, thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  144. Amusing. This is supposed to be a place of planning and discussion, yet the plights of Little Prey and Prey the 2nd go without comment.

    ReplyDelete
  145. Maybe if I threaten him with writing a slash-fic about him and Zeke, he'll come back on?

    ReplyDelete
  146. Do it.

    And toss Black Leaf in while you're at it. He really needs to get laid.

    ReplyDelete
  147. You're both officially awesome, JediZero and Serenity. So M's been missing for a while, then? Well, unless I get confirmation that slim's got him, I'm going to assume it's because M's up to something important and just can't get back to us yet.

    ReplyDelete
  148. I'm hoping you're right there, Ron. That's basically what we're all doing here; hoping that he's just unable to get any Internet access and not. . . well, dead.
    All we have to do is hope for the best for our friend, M.

  149. Oh, expecting him to come charging in on a white horse with the Substance covered knife to rescue all you Damsels, Little Prey? Please... The Master... cherishes M far too much for this to be the end.

    ReplyDelete
  150. Black Leaf: Even if you aren't talking to me, I do have something to say.
    Why should He cherish M? You'd think that because M knows so much about Him that He would want to get rid of M as soon as possible.
    But then again, it could be the other way around.
    It's because that M knows so much that He would cherish him. . . and try to hallow him out.

  151. NOOOOOOO!

    I had it half written, it was going great! I even through in Black Leaf getting tentacled by Slendercles! And I apparently didn't goddamn save it before my computer crashed.

    Damn it.

    ReplyDelete
  152. Uhmm... Yeah, Hi... ^.^; I uh... I uh need to talk to someone about this. I... I'm at the paranoid stage... and I just realised that... that I might have been lucky enough to forget about Him once...

    And now I've been reading the blogs, and freakin' TVTROPES got me into this, okay? I found him on TVTROPES.ORG for fuck's sake!

    *takes a deep breath* Okay... So... So yeah, I REALLY need some advice, because none of my friends believe me, and I just got a new job, and he's not following me, and I haven't seen him, but I keep thinking he's going to show up any minute. T^T Someone... give me some advice, please? I can't just...

    I can't just forget about this.

    I need to really, truly, know if this is real or not... Because if it is... If it is, I think I'm probably going to die.

    ReplyDelete
  153. Otaku_lady89: Aah, I remember when I was at that stage. I had just turned fourteen not 2 months before... I found it hard to sleep for months. If you're having trouble sleeping, you should set up a TV in your room and leave it on a channel you like to watch. That always helped me until I got over my paranoia. If you're lucky, you should get over the paranoia stage soon (4 months maybe). I'm basically in the same situation as you right now; haven't seen Him, but I know He's out there and coming to get me someday. All I can do is hope that my luck is on my side and I don't get haunted.
    There's really three types of people when it comes to Slender Man:
    People who think it's real.
    People who think it's fake.
    People who don't care and treat it as a game.
    You could say that I'm like #1 and #2. All you can do now is not think about Him; because that's what He wants you to do. Don't think about Him too much; stay on the lighter side as much as you can. If anything happens, let me know.

  154. @Uzuki - I'd love to do that, but I'm already drawing him in my notebook at work. I'll be doodling something else, characters from an anime I like, and suddenly, there he'll be. Or the operator symbol, or trees. All the time.

    And something else too. I've been drawing a female version of him too. Which isn't really surprising, considering my liking of Rule 63... but I'm worried. Because if he's real... then what if SHE is too?

    ReplyDelete
  155. Hi, me again. Managed to get to a slightly easier to survive at kinda location. Anyways, I'll keep it short. Is it just me or has there been a sharp increase in hallowed the last week?

    ReplyDelete
  156. @Joel: Ah, so you got your butt out of Sweden then, right? (I read through the comments and you said Sweden isn't safe, so I'm guessing that's where you lived?).
    And yes, there have been. So many that Kaiju from Slender School had to start a freakin' organization to get rid of them all (The National Association for the Pursuit of Proxies and Agents). Well, Proxies aren't the same as Hallows, but most Hallows become Proxies in the long run anyways. We managed to find a cure though, and this cure can also be used as a weapon against Him (hench the name The Substance. Perhaps you've heard that name floating around the blogs for the past month or so?) I don't know why there are so many; it could just be a bunch of people and the Tulpa effect that's responsible for it. I believe that Slender Man may in fact be getting weaker, so he needs more proxies/agents/hallowed to do his dirty work for him.
    Do you have any theories for this?

  157. What the black leaves was expressing is that the Beast likes a good hunt for prey content to flee. M still lives, but is trapped and seeks the Light. If any who dwell in Chigago truly care, you must go find him.

    ReplyDelete
  158. I once had a similar theory, UZUKI, but then I woke up two months later back in Boston with a device called "The Mark" that's currently holding me here. I don't feel like reexplaining it all. It's on my blog.

    ReplyDelete
  159. M's been trapped in Chigaco? Where would we even begin looking?

    ReplyDelete
  160. M... I hope he's alright. I'm no where NEAR Chicago, or I might try looking on my time off... V.V

    Side note- I actually feel LESS paranoid since I've posted here... Is that strange? I know usually people get bumped up to Infected...

    Captcha: Sabante.
    That sounds like a cute name. ^.^

    ReplyDelete
  161. Whoa, I knew M was in Chicago, but I didn't think he was trapped... hopefully he gets out of there soon. It's not good to be trapped by shit like that during the winter; it's going to be a rough time ahead for him.
    Otakulady: Yeah, I agree with that side note. I usually go to bed paranoid, but if I'm writing blogs and stuff one night, I'll have the most peaceful sleep ever. It just puts my mind at rest (which doesn't seem right...)

  162. http://nowheretohyde.blogspot.com/2011/02/goodnight-sweet-prince.html

    M, if you're reading this, you had better fucking call me out on being wrong.

    Please. I don't want to be right.

    ReplyDelete
  163. Well, Cerberus said we have to find M. Are there any proxy hives in Chicago where anyone can begin looking?

    ReplyDelete
  164. Jekyll: I don't think that anyone wants to be right about M's current situation.

    Ron: I wish I could help, but I don't live near Chicago, not even in the U.S. The most I can do up here is pray that He won't find me. I actually went on a search today with my sister's Ipod, but nothing happened.

    ReplyDelete
  165. i'm up in michigan, roughly 2 hours from chicago, give us a starting point, i'll spend a week or two down there to help out

    ReplyDelete
  166. @Joseph -Thank you. M means a lot of hope to us, and I think if you find him, we'll all feel safer.

    @Uzuki - I drew him again today, in the middle of work. I didn't even look at what I was drawing, and there he was, on my paper. I immediately drew the operator symbol and scribbled it out, but... I dunno what's going on...

    ReplyDelete
  167. joseph_peterson2000: Alright, good luck in the search; we all hope that you find him. And stay safe as well; we don't want the count of people being trapped in Chicago to go up.

    otaku_lady89: Are you like me that way, where you just have to bring in a sketchbook/notebook to draw on, or did you just happen to have a pencil and paper in front of you? Either way, after you realize you've drawn Him, you should try drawing something cheeful/off the subject of Him; it will keep your sanity alive for the moment, until you figure out what ot do next.

  168. pulled into chicago today. i have a relative that offered me a place to stay, anyone have any ideas as to where i might want to start looking?

    i'll start taking pictures of where i've been and what i see

    ReplyDelete
  169. Didn't you offer yourself to stick on Black Leaf's blog?

    ReplyDelete
  170. @Joseph: Look for high places, roofs, three stories, that kind of thing. Check coffee-shops with free-wifi, apple stores, that kind of thing. He's gotta be running.

    @Actually, I draw in my notebook to keep myself sane at work anyway. I didn't draw him today, and I haven't felt watched all day... I dunno, I usually only feel it at home, and I end up drawing him at work. ^.^

  178. shuriken: Keiken (just advertising)
    Well, since I saw Faceless(and I'm pretty sure someone entered my home one time to open my researching stuff)it had been like 2 months since Faceless stopped, I would like to compare some similar cases if anyone around here happens to be the same...

    I think that maybe I may have an answer, but not that big, it may be just a false hope...

  179. oh, btw, for all the runners I have two useful words: Peanut Butter.

    Yep that is right, that thing can maintain you up for around 4 days by can. The only problem left is getting potable water... well, you can drink almost any water if you boil it up first, good luck and always look behind!

  180. Thanks for keeping me informed with the rules and everything M. I have not yet been infected, and am starting a blog to see what happens. Please read, hope you can help if he shows. http://thattallstalkerdude.blogspot.com/2011/02/lets-cut-to-chase.html

  181. sorry Roy,
    I think M can't post for now...

    infected? how can you say that if you are even blogging and know what is happening? if you haven't seen Faceless please just forget about it and enjoy your life, ok kiddo? :)

    this is just an ARG, we dont need more players right now, maybe you can do your own ARG and share it later with us

  184. *out of the playing*

    Well, duh.

    It made sense for mu character to ask the other prominent characters what they thought before he started. Mine is separate from the other ARGs, and will not be as crossed over as some others are. Right now I'm taking a slightly different so if something huge happens where Zeke, M, Ava and Reach attack Redlight or something, I'm not involved. But the characters are kinda in the same universe, so contact is possible. Sorry for the huge post.

  188. Hey Pete - interesting place to promote our project. Good idea though, should help anyone out who needs it.

    Joseph - usually we go buy an "innocent until proven evil" plan here - and pics can be found all over the net. Check out my site if you need more help (Catographer, not Observer) - but it's still being updated.

    ReplyDelete
  189. Hey, guys. How's it going? Still haven't found M? Damn it... Listen, someone else needs to get down to Chicago to search for him. I'd love to do it, and if I make it out of this alive I will, but...
    Well, I have only have until tomorrow.

    ReplyDelete
  190. I think is not a very good idea...
    Besides, it had been too much time already...

    Maybe we should try with someone else he used to know...

  191. i'm all ears for the next plan. if i don't find him by tuesday i'm head home, i haven't ahd much luck
    can anyone direct me directly to an image of M?

  192. There are none. No one knows what he really looks like besides his hoodie.

  193. Ron's been taken. GO to his blog. M isn't the only one missing now.

    ReplyDelete
  194. what's his hoodie?
    it at least gives me something to go by. i'm leaving friday, i can't spend too much time in this city
    if M's been taken
