PostSubject: Can the Slender Man talk?   Thu Aug 18, 2011 11:15 am

THE ANSWER TO THIS THREAD

I'm kidding guise...Alright, so this question has been in my brain all day...Can the Slender Man talk? In some mythos he can in some he can't. In a few mythos a silt where open where his mouth should be so he can talk and eat children, in others he hugs children to eat them. I personally don't know but since you guy's are probably smarter then me maybe you could fulfill me with a good answer? Cause really i don't know.

It appears however that there is no real "yes" or "no" answer to the question.

The answer your looking for is, No.
At least not in a way we can understand. Be it physical or psychic.
Can he make you do things, horrible horrible things? Yes.
But if he is talking, we sure as hell can't understand it.

And that is my answer.
So there.

Konaa, try to refrain from one word posts.

And uh, Crusergirl pretty much covered this in basic form. It'd be like giving Link or Gordon Freeman the ability to talk. It's just something you don't do.

To play devil's advocate, I can think of one instance I've heard Slendy talk.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xm6PGh2fvTg&list=PL8EDE92C6120D402E&index=2

It starts at about 2:52. The video's a bit amateurish, and I doubt anyone takes this video seriously, but it shows that creators have had Slendy talk before. Usually though Slendy talking is really the exception to the rule.

I saw that, however i wasn't sure if that was supposed to be Slender Man's voice or not. But if it is then hot damn he's got the smoothest voice EVER. As i said, some people say he talks some people don't. I think the best way of answering this question is to ask Victor Surge himself.

Talk? His language is madness and his words are horrific death.

Too much Lovecraft in my veins. I was going to write more, but I figured I'd keep it short.

But all of Mr. Surge's original stuff just said he was silent, and everyone's just kind of run with that. Making Slendy talk is a surefire way to get me to ignore whatever Slenderfiction you're writing.

He's so incomprehensibly ahead of us that we can't possibly understand him even if we tried.

But did Victor ever say that he was always silent?

I don't really care if people make him talk or not..It doesn't ruin it for me in any way. Only thing that has ever ruined Slender Man for me if the whole fluffy shit. I'm pretty sure victor never said he was fluffy..then again he never really gave him a personality....

I don't think he did, but I thought it seemed to fit Slendy rather well. If he talks then you learn more about what he wants or what he is, and that kind of kills the mystery. I like that it's impossible to know exactly what his motives are because he never says anything.

Leaves us poor victims confused and guessing. Very Happy

Well, If he talked i doubt he would spoil anything. That wouldn't make sense if he did that...I think he himself would prefer being a mystery. If he does talk I'm sure he does it rarely.

I guess confused and guessing is better then knowing everything about the Slender Man. I was really upset with the Friday The 13Th remake when they spoiled how Jason got to places so fast but yano that's a remake it doesn't count...But anyway before i get too off topic I'll shut up here.

I don't really care what Victor Surge said in regards to Slendy (woah, blasphemy), becuase, as awesome as Victor Surge is, and as close as he is to being Slendy's Origin; he didn't really create slendy. In the end, he was the launching point for the internet to create slendy. We all created slendy, and moreover, pretty much every series and story out there has a different Slendy. So I don't particularly care if a specific story goes off of Surge-canon and does something different



That aside, I don't like Slendy talking because for me it breaks a lot of the fear. It's similar to how I don't like seeing slendy move much. For me, he's creepiest when he's just a sort of tall, looming figure that moves very slowly and doesn't make a sound. It's this idea that a tall, looming, slow moving thing would still be capable of overtaking you and messing you up.



I've never really seen a 'slendy-talks' serious that I found wholly creepy. I perfer that he uses the proxies to speak for him. Unless of course we're talking comedy.

Can I be in your movie?

Well, SMF mentioned asking Victor, so that's why I brought it up.

And I agree, I haven't seen anyone do a talking Slendy that didn't irritate the hell out of me.

you never let me get away with anything!

besides posting, I guess

also, uh, yes, Victor said that Slendy was silent

"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..."

I care somewhat about what Victor Surge says about Slender Man but i suppose I'm one of the very few. And that is true, he pretty much created some character and just let people use it as whatever there heart desires. We all created Slender Man obviously meaning most of us should be able to change how he acts, his methods and thoughts. I think a talking Slender man would be less scary but since, I myself aren't scared of Slender Man i wouldn't be able to know for sure.

In everything I've watched Slendy never moves and that upsets me. I would kill to see Slender Man in action which is why i supporting the guy who made that thread talking about making a Slender Man movie. Not putting full time faith on him however. But Slendy is somewhat creepy, I'll give him that. 98 out of 100 percent will you find a video involving Slender Man talking in a creepy, serious manner. I can't imagine his proxies talking for him, though i can imagine Slender Man writing a few sentences and handing the paper to Masky to read.

I suppose I phrased that somewhat badly, it's not that I entirely don't care what Victor Surge initially started the character with, it just that for me, slender man wasn't really created by a single person. Victor Surge had the basic idea, but the entirety of what slenderman is was created by the people who took that idea and ran with it. In the end, now, there is no pure answer to what Slendy is or isn't, as an effect of how he was created. For some canon's he talks, and for others he doesn't.

A joke i made made you head numb all day? Awesome. i think there is three possible answers to this.

1. What i mentioned in the "What if you met slenderman" thread.

2. If he opens his mouth slit (if he has one) all that would come out is camera distortion sounds.

3. This...

Maybe he can, but he doesn't. We're just so far below him, he sees no point in trying to communicate. Do you speak to bugs?

What he's saying is that Slender Man views us as insignificant as an insect. He's playing with us, like a little kid burning ants with a magnifying glass. If you spoke to an ant, would it understand you? I don't think so. Therefore, why would he bother speaking to us?

Ah, I understand a little now. I don't know why, but i always thought that a talking Slender Man would make more sense and be cooler but that IS just me.

I believe that if he talked he would only do it to comfort people.

It's kind of all a matter of opinion I suppose. Since different b/vlogs have different things surrounding him, it kind of depends on who you ask. I don't think he talks, he doesn't really need too.
