Your idea is unoriginal, but not without potential. If you make the characters interesting, and make the situation intelligible, you could make something good. But it'll take all the more work because the idea has been done before. The details may be different, but the ideas the same. Focus on the details, make them quality, and you may make a good story.

Hmm. I see what you mean. I'm trying not to go down the route where everything becomes convoluted do to crossovers with other SlenderVlogers. I'm gonna make mine a bit isolated, and that, I think, will help for the story. Although, I am probably gonna go few the overall script a while making it the best it can be. My ideas for the characters is have each represent an archetype (their archetypes tie directly into their Proxy names), but have the archetype itself have depth to it.

You are being unnecessarily defensive about your pet project because you can't handle a little bit of criticism.

You didn't make an introductory thread, but I'll tell you here what I would have told you there: You probably won't enjoy it here.

Cougars pretty much correct. You could have at least tried to say hi to us with an introduction instead of straight to "watch my shit".

To be honest, I didn't know there was an introduction thread. I admit it was an oversight on my part not to look harder for the introduction thread. I'll get on that now.

Ugh. I'll do this publicly, as opposed to sending a PM. Outlander, I was unfairly harsh with you last night. I'm going through some shit, and instead of being a rational adult I fired back at you without justification. For that, I apologize.

If you're still interested, I would like to talk with you about your idea, and if I can offer any real help (instead of just yelling at you mindlessly), I'll try to do so.

All right, let's try this again. I guess I'm having trouble understanding what makes your vlog idea unique. Can you run through that again for me?

It honestly doesn't seem like a horrible idea. Sure it's not a completely original idea, but not a lot in the Slenderverse (excluding the Big Five and some of the vlogs and blogs that are really up there) is.

My advice to you is to review your idea a few times. Maybe touch up a few things. Go really in-depth with your writing to make sure the story is very detailed and thorough. Spend a decent amount of time with it, but don't overthink it or overdo it.

Oh, frequent reviews and possible rewrites are a must for any idea. I also recommend beta-readers (that can work for scripts as well) and possibly beta-watchers as well.

- COUGHbetawatchers/readersCOUGH-

With the slenderverse, originality I quite difficult to achieve if your restricting yourself to Slendy. Http://www.thefearmythos.wikia.com If you use the other Fears, it gives you a lot more room to
Manoeuvre.

This literally cannot be said enough times. It might be hard to do if you have only experience with slendy, but it will probobly be worth it. Like how everymanHYBRID only got better when it added the rake.

I for one would love to see you try out the plague doctor. Obviously, it's your series an it's ultimately down to you, I just feel that he would be quite a good character to introduce in conjunction with ol' Slendy.

As interesting as the Plague doctor sounds, I think the Nightlanders would be better. Think about it, on the run from Slendy, 3 of the group already turned, we look over, and there is a random shadow.

HOOLYCRAPPLEASENOIWANNALIVEDON'TKILLMEANDMYLOVEDONES!!!!!!!

Hmm. I like it.

Updates: We have our final cast. Here are their real names and their Proxy names.

Caleb The Warrior
Davis The Runner
Hudson The Thinker
Logan The StoryTeller (Slender Man)
Madeline The Maiden
Roman The Watcher
Ryan The Loner
Taylor The Knight

I'm starting to agree with Cougar. Big party. Good thing is, we all live pretty close to each other, and we don't all have to be there at the same time. We'll see if we can work out a schedule, and work from there.

Oh? And what is that?

Also, i've been doing some Proxie research. I'm thinking that our proxies will be a cross between A Hollowed and an Agent. They'd be under Slender Man's control, but would still retain a trace from their former life. They'd have better dexterity, and would use more than brute force to fight. They'd also be distinguished from one another. Mainly by fighting styles, but, possibly, by the masks they wear.

... Question. Is Madeline the only female, and if so is that going to be her character? feminism marches on
Also, by labeling your characters like this you may severely limit their potential growth, and fall into a lot of bad stereotypes.

I was planning on that, yes. I hate to let you guys know this, but, I was intending on pulling a My Little Pony. (The part about ponies) Have each character a stereotype, but, give the characters depth in the process. Anyone know what i'm talking about?

((Sorry for the Double Post))

After looking through both the Core Theory and the Fear Mythos, I kinda want to do a combination. We do as suggested and have the team fill roles. Kind of like a chess game, they get taken out by Slender Man and the Nightlanders. Sanity crumbles, minds break, and it all goes to crap.

I would try my best to not fall into Core Theory if I were you. It has a lot of negative stuff attached to it as far as a lot of tge verse is concerned. and yeah...titles like that seem a sure way to fall into shitty stereotyping, especially when you have a female character.whos only role is to be the female character
