So yeah, I know this topic may have been brought up before, but... what HASN'T been done in a Slender Man-related product?
What do you, the audience, wanna see?
What should happen to distinguish coming generations of creators from the established formulas?
What could Slender Man as a mythos explore?

... Okay people might crucify me for this but I have always wanted to see a Slender Man blog/vlog done from...while his point of view. You know from the monsters. Not a comedy series but putting us into whatever kind of mad mind Slender Man might have. 

I don't know it is always a concept I wanted to see pulled off.

I once saw a suggestion somewhere for the Slender Man to regularly mess up more electronics than just cameras, and it seems like a great idea. In fact, it's surprising that it hasn't really been done.
Also, I've never heard of anyone making a series where Slendersickness was a main focus. It would be interesting to see the symptoms progressively get worse to make his victims even more vulnerable and provide some great paranoia fuel.

Yeah, I was an advocate of the additional electronic disruption.
There could be a way to do it from his POV. It would have to be an actual film, but it could work.

You could do a whole thing on someone getting sick andpeople trying to treat it.

Oh you could have one person be super sick and know about Slender Man, and another character is like their live in nurse who thinks the person is just crazy. 

Slenderjinks happen and such.

A series completely focused on Slenderman, with juicy amounts of gore. His POV as said earlier.

I would watch that shit. You could go by the old and new headcanons, having Slenderman get dressed in the mornings to go out in kill. Where he tells the audience about himself, and give the  reminder that his name isn't Slender. Have him reference to VictorSurge as his father. Something along those lines.

It's something I've been wanting to see be done for years. I couldn't do it myself.

Dunno if anyone has managed to do it yet, but I'd like to see a series where Slenderman is defeated. Have a good ending where the protagonist lives and possibly have it where Slendy is defeated at the end of the series. But it'd have to be done well, it'd have to be logical, and have it make sense.

That is so meta and post-modern...it would actually work.

Yeah definitely. But you could do that. Or at least SlenderMan can't touch the protagonists ever again.

Didn't StanFrederickBTS kinda did that? The Slender man actually leaves the protagonist alone?

I was considering doing a sci-fi/horror/comedy series with one of the recurring villains being a Slenderman-like creature named Mr. Evil.

Something I'd also like to see is more emphasis on Slender Man himself. There's this mentality among a lot of people that you simply have to incorporate something else, like a proxy or other monster, in order to make your series work, but this can lead to underplaying Slender Man, often to the point where you would be better off not even using him. I want to see something new that doesn't underestimate how scary Slender Man is on his own, preferably going back to the uncanny valley effect of thinking he's human until fearfully realizing just how wrong that assumption is. Old school minimalism is preferable.

Yeah I agree. I think the biggest thing is people don't want to explain too much about Slender Man. So you gotta find the balance between making him the focus and keeping him fresh.

I had an idea once for a series that would begin with the more ToTheArkesque channel, one that produces multiple covert videos of one or more protagonists being victimised by the Slender Man. Eventually one or more of the members of the observed group begin making their own, more raw video recordings of their suffering and become aware of the first channel that's also been documenting them

It would emerge that the stalker is someone who once witnessed Slender Man tearing their friends apart, only for the tall bugger to pointedly ignore them and leave them alone. Something snapped inside them, and they became singularly obsessed with understanding why they were left to live, seeking out another set of Slender victims both to study them and to brazenly expose themselves more and more to Ol' Slim who continues to do nothing. It would be heavily implied that our current victims aren't the first time they've done this

It would never be explained whether the stalker was being played as a pawn by Slender Man, or if they had some sort of innate power to repel him or something else. Ideally they'd probably be killed by some mundane method near the end of the series, taking the mystery with them

This is something I've been thinking about for awhile and I very much agree with this.

I remember this Chris van Allsburg book about a camera that gets passed on from person to person. I was thinking about a storyline not being about the protagonist, but the camera, recording the several investigations and deaths of those who possessed the camera.

The great thing about the slender man mythos is that it's ominous, enigmatic, and very open ended. Nobody KNOWS what the slender man really is or what he's truly capable of, and this is why there are so many variations to the myth. Personally, I don't think your question is even valid because there are an ENDLESS amount of things you can do with a slender man story sheerly because of how open-ended it is. Tons of things haven't been done, and this holds true for all aspects of the myth. Theres an infinite amount of ways the slender man could have come into being, what he does, how he kills, how he can be killed, IF he can be killed, etc. What truly makes a slender man series or blog great is the artistic vision of the person or people creating the story. Be unique and make it your OWN story and if it's good people will like it Cool

What we wanna see is the continuation of Trial of Leaves!!!

I wanna see people be a little more liberal with their interpretation of the canon. I know it would also be nice to have a back to the roots kinda series, but for the most part I think people restrict themselves too much by trying to adhere to what they think the audience wants. If you make your series predictable you will never scare anyone truly.

MOD EDIT: Merged Double Post (Technically I deleted one and pasted the thing into the first one because I couldn't find the merge button. Which I've just found, it's further down than I thought, below the reply box.)

Come on Test, you've been here for long enough to know the Double Post rule. =P

I agree with you though. There's a reason Indie Games have become so popular lately - big developers pander to what they think the market wants, and only independent developers take the necessary risks to keep the industry alive. Same principle applies to Slendermerch. Go wild!

I want to see a main character who actually wants to make the best of being stalked. One who doesn't either go: "I WANNA FREAKIN' KILL HIM." or "I'M GONNA FREAKING DIE". I wanna see a character with a level head who doesn't actually think in the most cynical of terms. Marble Hornets had Jay almost be this, but he slowly morphed into a "I'm gonna die" kind of character.

I really want to see a new series that recaptures the kind of atmosphere that has made the mythos great. The reason I brought up my opinion earlier that Slender Man should not be glanced over is because there should always be an underlying sense of dread behind his presence that is not ignored. And it seems like a lot of series don't even try to accomplish this. A lot of them seem to be content with settling for "okay" in order to not scare themselves too much, and this ends up watering the whole thing down. I guess what I'm saying is that new additions to the mythos should strive to be more than just a "little bit creepy", and that there should be more dedication put into making an ominous, fear-inducing story.
