My name is Laura; I heard about Slender Man from a long-time friend of mine, and I'll never forgive him for it. I've worked my way through most of Marble Hornets at this point, and I'm trying to explore as much Slendy as I can. I find him academically fascinating as an example of a modern-day folk tale, and the "open-sourcing" of his mythos seems analogous to the way stories used to be communicated-- without ownership, each re-telling adding something new to the story until it becomes a community's property.
I'd be happy to discuss Slender Man with anybody, so hit me up over PM!

Welcome to the forum, Laura! I hope you like it here, we're all a friendly bunch.
As for your research, I find it to be a very good study. Not many people see the Slender Man legend as a modern folk-tale. I hope we can be of aid to your study!

Welcome to Slender Nation, your one stop shop for nightmare fuel and shenanigans! I can see how the open-source folklore style nature of the mythos would interest you; I was listening to a Radio 4 documentary that ran along a similar theme not so long ago.

Ello Laura!! I hope you have a good time on here and enjoy the fabulous people and wonderful stories...
...that may or may not, probably leave you so scared you wont want to go to the bathroom cause Slender Man might be in there, or better yet The Rake is on the ceiling...
Have fun! :3
