Call him 'slender' in an unironic fashion.

Ok. To expand on this since other people are expanding on theirs, it's a fun (but a bit over-the-top) series of stories about a trio of friends (two of which are actually half-brothers) who hunt monsters and fight aliens and mad scientists, with the Slender Man being a sort of background character for the most part and ALWAYS somehow being the one orchestrating the majority of the evil plots these guys come across, even if he's not the villain they're fighting.

One such story involves an alien planet where the native race is used as pizza ingredients in a frozen-pizza factory. By another alien who is revealed to us (but not the actual team of heroes) to be in ol' Slendy's employ.

This isn't entirely my idea, this originally had its genesis with a friend of mine. But we often collaborate on such things. Very Happy

Never ever use the Marble Hornets symbol, and don't go over the top with your own version of a symbol. This is probably my only gripe with a slender series, but I immediately loose my immersion when I see a series copy marble hornet's symbol. 25 other series have used the symbol and it's dry, used up, and unoriginal. In my opinion of course. Very Happy

Too late.
I purposely ignored that rule, because (To me) having some random symbol that never has any real meaning other than representing your series is less helpful to the story tha the Operator symbol, which is soooo symbolically ingrained into the mythos, that it becomes archetypal. Like Batman's symbol is a bat, and it represents him.
So I used it because the Operator symbol IS Slenderman.

I suppose it is better to use the operator symbol than your own made up one, but I'd still stand by my original statement. I know it's ingrained into the mythos at this point; hell, whenever I see it in real life I think of slenderman immediately, but it just seems too cliched at this point, ya know? When I see it in a series I'm like "Oh so thats what we're doing now..."

I still cannot stress this enough: underplaying Slender Man and the horror he provides, or using him as a generic monster. Slender Man should be part of a story because it feels like the right kind of story for him to be in, not because he's an easy choice for a monster. Atmosphere needs to be kept in mind; at its best, the Slender Man Mythos provides a bleak, foreboding, and chillingly realistic mystery... but only when it is written by people that remember that its roots were in horror in the first place.

I've rarely seen an on-camera death, and I want to see pet deaths. It makes the Slenderman seem a lot more violent. Actually, in my new slender-series, I'm planning to do a scene where the Slenderman kills my two cats. Of course, they wouldn't actually be dead, I'd just use the power of CGI. I sound like a psychopath, dont I. :/

Oh. That's certainly bad. Oh well, I do also want to see the Slenderman moving objects without his arms or whatever. It would make things less predictable.

That was pretty good. My only critiques would be that the Slenderman has a white head, not a skin colored head. My other would be using the IMovie glitch effect at the end. ;-;

What's wrong with white head slendy? That's how I've always pictured him, pure white and feature-less.
Cause there is no color for skin, and giving him a certain skin tone would destroy the blank slate faced Slenderman.

He was implying that slendy only works WITH a white face, and the person he was critiquing was using a "tan skin" colored face. A little confusion there lol

I just imagined a black slenderman with an afro. It was terrifying.

(Maybe a grimoire, written entirely in Latin or Hebrew. Some old language.)

So far, much of these books are about manifestos like the Order's Black Book.

Aside from early installment weirdness like the sound of children's laughter in the original mythos, and the Operator echoing back voices in early Marble Hornets, the closest that we'll probably get to him talking is hearing his victims describe  that he spoke to them telepathically. Which is fine by me, because Slender Man is scarier when his motivations and thought processes remain a mystery.

To be honest, I don't much like the Fear Mythos. In conjunction with the Slender Man Mythos, I think it takes away a lot of the mystery by knowing all about how the monsters think, how they work, and what they are. For me, the Slender Man works because of the story atmosphere he provides. His victims shouldn't be able to understand what he is, because they will rack their brains trying to figure out how something that looks so human simply isn't. He is effective because we know what he does, but not how or why.

As such, the explanation that he is undoubtedly an embodiment of a human fear just takes me out of it. He is just not the right kind of monster to work under that premise, because the entire point is that we don't understand what he is. Even calling him the Fear of the Unknown gives us a sure idea of what he is, and too much of a sure idea that there's no room left to experiment. The Rake is even more out of place, since the original story leaned more to the paranormal side than the Eldritch Horror side. The Fears and their underlying premise are too unsubtle and unrealistic for me to be paranoid, much unlike the mythos they originated from. 

That being said, your video kept my interest and I might make an exception and watch the rest of Pavel Hall.

I'm just trying to tell a good story. I'm not really here to make you paranoid or anything. I am a story telling using the tools available to make the best story I can.

There are TONS of stories about Slendy being a mysterious creature and such but after a while, it's like "I want more."

I don't wanna stick to what everyone else does. Cause after hundreds of different slendy/fear vlogs and such. I feel like it's more of the same.

A group of people from teens to late 20s running around with cameras screaming at a tall guy in the distance, after a while? Stale.

I'm not saying what everyone makes is bad. I watch a lot of vlogs here. Just saying after a while, I'd like something different.

I can understand wanting to see something new, as I myself have been getting tired of derivative series lately. I'm just voicing my concerns on  how well alternate portrayals of Slender Man will work in general.

Having a villain that you know it's motive can be terror.

Slenderman is a Mad God that is power hungry and would just love to make the main character a vegetable after hours, days, even years of torture.

That? That is more frightening to me then some weird, unhuman tall thing.
