PostSubject: Wondering the back story and the aftermath   Mon Jan 21, 2013 1:02 am

Okay so I have researched a little bit, but not really well informed on the subject.

What is slenderman's back story, why do people think he does what he does?

Has it ever been established what exactly happens to these people slendy takes?

The easy answer to both of those questions is "nobody knows."

The more well-informed answer is that it depends on who you ask, what series/blog/story you're talking about, and what exactly you feel Slenderman is and should act like. Basically, he can be anything, have any motive, and have any sort of origin you like. He's a blank slate.

1. Don't double-post, that's against the forum rules. Edit your old message instead.

2. And yeah that's basically the point. Slender-fiction arose as a very open creative medium, so that people creating blogs or vlogs had almost entirely free creative reign to write about it as they saw fit. I'm sure everyone has their own personal theories, but nothing is set in stone.

This.

Aaaaaaaaall of this.

Slender Man lore has such little canon that creators just went "Hey, this stuff hardly has anything about it that's fact. Why don't we make up our own facts?" And so they (we) did.

Also, one of the admins on this site made this sticky thread here for anyone in search of some Slender Man backstory. Considering that you made this thread for such a thing, I figured this may help you a bit.

Yeah, read what's in the link Sethlapod posted.

But that's really the beauty of the Mythos - the fluidity. There is some stuff that's considered canon-ish, but it's almost more like a guideline. For example, Slendy CAN have tentacles but he doesn't necessarily have to use them in your series. He CAN kill people but he doesn't necessarily have to in your series. It all depends on what you like in your Slendy, and what you think works best for him.

The golden rule of thumb? As long as it's creepy, go for it. Very Happy
