Eh. A monster's less scary the more you show of it. The reveal was a bit too clear.

Yeah I have to agree. The MH boys are clearly filmmakers, but not costume ninjas nor actors of any degree. Therefore exposing these short-comings should be avoided at all times. For example, having Alex make sad-faces about his girlfriend is forgivable because it's short; important to the story; and interesting despite any dry-acting. On the other hand, giving us long, undistorted shots of Slendy, where we can see the seam lines on his extended arms is...eh, not thrilling.

And again, the weird distortion style bugs me. It doesn't look like typical MH distortion. It's like someone else is doing all the effects. It makes me wonder if TTA is really supposed to look different, or if the boys have just changed how they're doing things...

I didn't dislike the episode...I liked the implications, and some of the ideas; yeeeet...it certianly had faults. In some ways MH feels like it's backsliding. Some of the scares are more elementary, and the plot isn't advancing like it used to. Makes it seem like the boys are just a little stuck for ideas? I dunno. I'm certianly still willing to keep watching.

I kinda like how an Entry which ties up some plot-ends people have been asking about is accused of not advancing the plot.

Jesus christ, there's a lot of fuckery in this thread.

Slendermon - Posting a "test" post in ANY thread is pretty ridiculous. The forum works, your account works. All you're doing is spamming the thread.

And for the love of god, double posting is against the rules. hasdkjahsdk Unless the topic has been dead for some time and you have something significant to add, you shouldn't be double posting. I'm looking at you, animalluver202. As for Aeri Tyaelaria, don't worry, if someone posts before you're able to, you should be alerted to it when you click "send".

Anyways, as for the video... I pretty much agree with everyone else. dhfksdh This reveal did seem a little silly. Slendy was far too clear, and while I know the guys try their best, Slendy's costume seemed a bit... oversized. hfksdk XD Like... I could see him maybe wandering the streets in the 70's. But not standing out in the middle of the woods. He seemed kind of vulnerable. Though that could have been the composition they chose more than anything else.

The one question I was wondering while reading this, what's with the random letters? O.o

Thank you, Lotus. Because it took me a minute to even realize wtf MockingJay meant by "random letters". shdfjksdh I thought they meant my addressing the three other members. Like... as if they were "letters".

Now I facepalm harder than I've ever facepalmed.

This...This doesn't reveal to us ANYTHING. It didn't even confirm or deny if Alex was...'Slenderized'...? Or if he was just getting sick and tired of the shit he's going through, and confronted Slendy.

^ ... No? They've only put out 17 videos so far as opposed to the 26 that came out with season one. Marble Hornets is finishing up, clearly, but there's still quite a ways to go.

Maybe this has to do with the idea that they were only planning two seasons? The series might be wrapping up in an unsatisfactory way.

Woah. Okay, I read Zander's post, and an idea occurred to me.

Well, more like a continuation of Zander's 'Masky contacting Jessica and then them working together'. That actually sounds pretty plausible at the moment, at least to me. Why? Well, I don't think TiMasky could have easily gotten out of that house and back to civilization with a broken and banged up leg. I think he had some help (i.e JESSICA) in getting out of there.

Also, if Jessica is working with TiMasky, and she is Sinclair... Well, it's almost certain that Sinclair = Totheark, so maybe this means both TiMasky and Sinclair are TTA, This could explain the change in style in totheark's responses, since instead of Tim making them, it's Jessica and she doesn't know how to be mysterious. Instead, she's more direct.

Well, actually, she could be mad at Jay/Alex and is being more hostile because she lost her roommate.

i wondered for a moment why she would be mad at alex about it, seeing as jessica and alex seem to be (or were) on friendly speaking terms at the very least. but then it hit me: going on malus' line of thought, jessica probably blames alex for bringing this upon her friend, and by extention herself

if jessica did meet up with tim at some point, he could have easily mislead or brainwashed her into thinking that alex and/or jay is/are her enemy. under this theory, she has a pretty clear motivation if she is, indeed, hostile. the reason she was so civil to jay at the hotel could be because
a) she wasn't aware of jay at the time
b) she is a very convincing actress
c) or she legitimately couldn't remember why she was there, and was being controlled. hell, for that matter, she might have been brainwashed the whole time, and my entire post before this point it moot

... so yeah. i honestly can't say i believe in this theory, but i figured i'd add on to it anyway. at the very least, it's an interesting thought

It's going to be a mother of a job rounding up the remaining loose ends (although this might be partly personal perception due to my tendency to focus on details like "why was Jay being so ominous about Alex's abandoned tapes before he'd even seen the first Operator appearance?" and "what's the deal with the burned-out underground room anyway?"). That or a bloodbath



I'm not necessarily opposed to a bloodbath

Well mainly, I'm thinking, what are the major plot threads/mysteries that we still have:


  • Alex and Jay looking for Amy
  • Jay and Jessica ending up at the hotel with their memories wiped
  • (the above two, I think, are probably related)
  • Totheark (identity, purpose)
  • Tim (purpose, related to TTA?)
  • Sinclair (same as with Tim)
  • We know why Jay stayed at the hotel, but what was Jessica doing there that whole time?
  • Alex going to the Operator in the woods
  • We know something happened to Jay once since he's been on the run ('enttry 37'), but have there been more incidents like this (and this just may be the only one he remembers happening)?

I think I'm forgetting one or two, but that's what I have at the moment. Some of this stuff I think they may not just come right out and tell us (though they might, they have kind of been doing that with the stuff we have gotten to find out), but I'll wait and see. And I suppose some of those could be connected and so might be answered at the same time. It might be possible to wrap everything up with not too many more entries, but... well, I just don't think it's likely.

Lemme see if I agree with that...


  • Alex and Jay looking for Amy (and Jessica it seems)
  • Jay and Jessica ending up at the hotel with their memories wiped (and seemingly having been there for a Long time... despite Alex's apparant possession, and therefore knowledge by the Slender Man of their location)
  • (the above two, I think, are probably related)
  • Totheark (identity, purpose) [not to mention how he keeps getting onto Jays account]
  • Tim (purpose, related to TTA?) [As a proxy? How did it become it? Why was he deemed important enough? And in fact, why is Slendy after them in the first place?!]
  • Sinclair Russell (same as with Tim) [Indeed, he just sorta appeared for one scene then vanished... I'd say Alex is looking to be a likely candidate, seeing as he was around at the time, and he only met up with Jay AFTER the Camera was put back in his car.]
  • We know why Jay stayed at the hotel, but what was Jessica doing there that whole time? [Neither of them remember]
  • Alex going to the Operator in the woods [Yeah... That was freaky. To me it feels like the Operator is like the One Ring - the longer you're exposed, the harder it is to resist. Jay has had minimal exposure, so he can run like the dickens. Alex has had much, so he's about as sturdy as a tower made of snotty hankerchiefs.]
  • We
    know something happened to Jay once since he's been on the run ('enttry
    37'), but have there been more incidents like this (and this just may
    be the only one he remembers happening)? [I suspect there have... and I'm excited to see 'em!]

Well, I'm still not certain on that, as I mentioned in a different post, there are a couple different possibilities about the hotel, so he may not have actually been there the whole time. I'm just going to wait and see about that.

Quote :


  • Totheark (identity, purpose) [not to mention how he keeps getting onto Jays account]
  • Tim (purpose, related to TTA?) [As a proxy? How did it become it? Why was he deemed important enough? And in fact, why is Slendy after them in the first place?!]

I think I'd lean more towards Tim and TTA being a third party with their own agenda. And the Operator seems to be primarily after Alex (and has been for a while if we go by 'enttry 37'), the rest of them just seem to have gotten caught in the middle of it all as far as I can tell right now.
Quote :


  • Sinclair Russell (same as with Tim) [Indeed, he just sorta appeared for one scene then vanished... I'd say Alex is looking to be a likely candidate, seeing as he was around at the time, and he only met up with Jay AFTER the Camera was put back in his car.]

If you look closely at the beginning of Entry #42, Sinclair is sitting underneath a tree when Alex gets out of his car, so it's unlikely that Sinclair would be Alex unless he can be two places at once. (Although, then again, with the Operator involved that may not be quite so unlikely). But at the moment I'm leaning more towards Jessica as a possbility.

Quote :


  • We know why Jay stayed at the hotel, but what was Jessica doing there that whole time? [Neither of them remember]

I meant the whole time after Jay woke up there and was trying to get into the safe and find clues. That was at least about two months, I think. So what was Jessica doing during the time?

Quote :


  • Alex going to the Operator in the woods [Yeah... That was freaky. To me it feels like the Operator is like the One Ring - the longer you're exposed, the harder it is to resist. Jay has had minimal exposure, so he can run like the dickens. Alex has had much, so he's about as sturdy as a tower made of snotty hankerchiefs.]

I think I kind of like this theory, actually.
Quote :


  • We know something happened to Jay once since he's been on the run ('enttry
    37'), but have there been more incidents like this (and this just may

Agreed.

Continuing on storylines in the present, we know Tim at least is still out there, and then there's whatever happened to Jessica, so that's a few more things to consider at least. So I'm imagining that we're not too close to the end quite yet.

I have a picture of Sinclair sitting under the tree in Entry #42. I put it on the discussion for #42, if you want to go take a look at it. I'm positive that's our new masked friend there.

Second paragraph is kind of what I said, but what you said does contribute. We don't know the full extent of Jessica and Amy's relationship, so it's possible she'd be more hostile after losing her possible best friend.

Uh, what..? I'm rather confused at this post. Particularly the first bit.

The second bit, people have mainly been complaining about how Slender Man looked as far as appearances went, such as his pants and lanky arms. (I didn't find a problem with it.) Otherwise I'm not quite sure where you're coming from on the matter.

P.S. Ovbviousity isn't a word. Nor is Obviousity, of which I assume would be the correct spelling if it was a word.
