In the same boat. I'm also curious about what would happen if someone didn't react to him with immediate terror, such as just treating him like a fly on the wall. Would such a reaction intrigue him or piss him off?

What, you mean like all those stories back in ye olde days when people didn't cop out of writing real horror by claiming that merely looking at him was terrifying?

The answer is he would rip out their organs and hang them up from a tree.

Because Slender Man loves him some extreme Christmas tree decorating.

Oh hell yes! Exactly!

Hah, makes me think... I'd be so pissed if anyone ever pulled a Slender Man prank on me, aka dressed up as Slendy and then stood somewhere so that I saw him and got freaked out, because I'd no doubt react if it was real, cause I'm generally pretty damn slendernoid anyways, although I know it's not real.

So I'd probably be very close to beating the shit out of that person pulling the prank, or at least get very, very pissed. Actually, I think I'd be a little disappointed, later realizing it was just a prank, heh. I kinda want to see Slendy. Just for the sake of it, and in curiosity of what's going to happen afterwards.

Well, we at the Church of the Slender (Like our Facebook page!) believe that Slender is not to be feared, as He hunts those who show fear, and as the fear builds, He becomes more and more powerful on their minds. So to us, acceptance is the key to delaying His final Judgement on our souls! So accept Him!

A reminder that this forum is Out Of Game, and plugging your page is frowned upon. Here's the rules. Read them.

And no, he is to be feared, not accepted. He is a creature based on horror tropes after all, so the whole point is being afraid of him. True, people fear different things, and they also react differently. Some would run, and never stop. Some will try to fight in fear, only to fall so far. Others will lose their minds. He is like death, sweeping through the hallways in his Sunday best. Like a fire of unknown origin, ready to take his victims away to an uncertain fate. His thoughts and morals are orange and blue, not black and white as people like to twist it. There is nothing solid, no motives or reasoning that we could know of. Everything is in flux. And if I were to face him, I honestly wouldn't have a clue what I would do.

Jokes about hugs and begging for twenty dollars aside, I think I view Slender Man as a malevolent force of evil. Destruction? Perhaps, if he's in the mood. I think he's a force, a force to be reckoned with no doubt, but a force that does what it wants, WHEN it wants.

He just doesn't give a ... um ... *looks at the rules* Just doesn't give a crap.

It cannot be reasoned with, it cannot be negotiated with, it cannot be stopped. Of course, you all knew that already but I'm just saying so you guys know I'm somewhat on the same page. Razz

Slendy doesn't need proxies, he just uses them because it suits his fancies. But what does one gain in return for being a proxy? Do they get to live? Do they get to be immortal (i.e. live forever)? Or does he dispose of them when he no longer needs them?

...Or does he use them at ALL? What would HE gain by using proxies?

Simply put, I'm not sure exactly how to look at the Slender Man. It can be one thing but it can also be another... it's so elusive and mysterious that what we think we know about it can be proven wrong just like that. *snaps fingers for emphasis*

DISCLAIMER -- this was not an in-character post, just my view on the Slender Man as a phenomenon on the interwebs.

I've always thought that everyones he's killed, was going to do something horrible in the future. Will Noah start a massacre? Jay becoming the next Hitler? maybe vinnie would be a kidnapper? Maybe slenderman knows what is going to happen, so he takes us. We see it as taking us away and ruining lives, but maybe he is trying to protect us from something worse...

or maybe he wants $20

Well that's an interesting take on Slendy. I like the way you think.

I think ol' Slendy just straight up kills the proxies when he's done with them,
Spoiler:
 
As for actually needing proxies? I don't know, maybe even Slender Man has to abide by some laws of the universe. That or he just knows how to screw with people and make their lives a living nightmare by using other people that they know and care about to do his bidding. If so, points to Slender Man, that officially ranks him in my top ten villains of all time.

Ok, having read level100nidoking's theory, I think I have to say I agree with that assessment. Slender Man might actually be not a villain, but a sort of antihero. Mind you, one so fearsome even the people he protects are scared mindless.

And maybe if you see him it's not necessarily because he's going to take you; it could be one of many things, such as just keeping an eye on you to make sure you're not a threat, or watching to keep you safe, or whatever. You don't necessarily need to be a future monster yourself to see him.

That, and he must get bored sometimes so he decides to troll people by popping up and saying "Hi" with a head tilt.

We should all take an oath, that when if we see slenderman, we will not run, but offer him our friendship and probobly our money

The Slender Man is like an Eldritch Abomination to me. A creature beyond our understanding in every sense, even when it comes to its motives.

Uh, NO! The original S-Man was WAY more aggressive, he stalked, abducted and killed children for pete's sake. The new S-Man may be less aggressive, but he's still as much of a threat to everyone as he was then.

If I saw him in the woods I would run away as fast as I could, while at the same time chucking $20 dollar notes over my shoulder to slow him down.....

Spoiler:
 

Maybe they were going to be an even bigger threat later? Its possible he was saving them and/or other people. Maybe they were going to die horribly soon so he killed them early and peacefully, Like he's the slender cop.

Frank Slender man the cop who doesn't play by the rules

I don't like the idea of him being the good guy. It takes away from the horror.

Personally I think it adds to it. It confirms that none of us know when/if we will be taken. How do you know you won't be captured by slenderman? same answer to how you know you won't become hitler. There is no reason

edit: just to clarify this is not an in character post.

[As a general rule I do not enter wooded areas without a weapon. That is to say, I am a hunter. I find no reason to go into forests, woodlands, or any other like terrains unless I'm hunting.]
[When I DO go into wooded areas I make sure it's light out and give myself plenty of time to skedattle before the sun sets.]
[Regardless, If I were to ever see Slenderman I would do what I normally do when I'm scared; Freeze up and become unresponsive.]
[I may or may not have learned my battle tactics from fainter goats.]

I know that feel, bro.

(Had to be done.)

This is why I don't go into woods. Forests, meadows, marshes, glens, creeks, valleys, brush, vales, sure, but not woods.

Edit: Hell, I even traverse the odd escarpment here and there.

[But Forests are denser than woods and more commonly have dangerous wild animals. Like Bears. And Cougars.]
[Marshes are a bad idea in general because if you get stuck in marsh mud and something comes after you...]
[Creeks can have any number of things embedded in their... beds. Makes them dangerous. Once stepped on a rusty nail in the Conneaut Creek and it went clean up through the sole of my shoe, in the sole of me foot and then out the top.]
[So those are pretty dangerous too, depending on how strictly the 'no littering' policies are upheld.]
[In short, your post confuses and alarms me, sir.]
