“Slenderman isn’t real.”

That’s how this story starts. That’s how this story will most likely end. I don’t lie. My name is Raksha, and this is my story.

“Slenderman isn’t real.”

Helen has said this a variety of times to me. I nod vaguely and she cries out in frustration. I silently watch her fume, her round, pudgy pig face red all the way to the roots of her bleached hair. She looks me in the eyes and I return her stare. She’s pleading with me, but I don’t care. She wants me to say a lie; but I won’t do that. Obviously seeing my resolution, she stands up, and storms out of the room. I hear her screaming at my fiancée that she couldn’t help me, that I was a lost cause that should be abandoned. Reaching for my untouched coffee that lay on the side table aside the couch I lounged on, I stir in some of the provided sugar and wait for Jer to come and get me. When he does, his eyes show exhaustion. A stab of sympathy hits me. That’s all from my yelling at night. Hardening up quickly, I give him one of my legendary cold shoulders. I told him he could leave me; he refused,therefore his well being was no concern of mine. He seated himself beside me on the psychiatrist’s couch.

“Why? Why won’t you admit Slenderman isn’t real? What could you possibly gain by keeping up this charade?”

I scoffed at him and his weakness. Was he really expecting me to soften up, lie, and tell him I would stop playing a game that doesn’t exist? As if I would play such a useless game. He knows I don’t play in something that doesn’t benefit me in return. He didn’t say a word as he got up from the couch, but just as he was about to walk out the door, he said it.

“I’m calling it off. Our engagement, our relationship. Everything. I’ll file all the paperwork, and send it for you to sign. I’ll tell your family.you just keep obsessing over things that aren’t there.”

And with that, I lost Jer forever. I didn’t care. He didn’t believe me, no he didn’t want to believe me. All because of his fear. I couldn’t spend the rest of my life with someone that weak anyhow. I rose from the couch, dusted off my jeans, and sauntered to the dreary day in Seattle. Rain clouds were forming in the sky, ready to pour at given moment. I fingered the large kitchen knife, the lone item I kept in my handbag. A drizzle began to rain over the town, but I continued to walk east. Towards the woods.

He was already there when I arrived. His suit was extraordinarily dry, as if the rain found him as revolting as I did. His snake like arms dangled , barely scraping the forest floor. He accessed me in silence- I didn’t think he was blind, but I always had to remind myself that he could see me better than I could see him. I guess I would never get over the feeling that he was wearing some morbid Halloween costume. His long tentacles were absent, for the time being, and one of his long arms stretched towards my face. His spindly finger explored my face and my ody, without ever touching it. I didn’t hide the repulsive shivers it caused. Finally, it seemed as though he was deep into the trance, or enchantment, or whatever this monster could feel. I dug deep into my bag to unsheathed the knife, and I plunged it into his chest. He didn’t look as if he were pain, then again, he didn’t look like anything. His face was still glued to my body as I screamed. My legs couldn’t support me anymore, but I stood. His gaze literally wouldn’t let me go. I felt blood seeping through my clothes, slithering down my torso.

My knife was plunged into his chest, yet it wasn’t him I had pierced. The forest began to black out. I realized that I wasn’t fainting; it was Slenderman. His tentacles weren’t absent, but were winding through the trees, dodging my vision. A slimy cloak enfolded me, and Slenderman’s face became a smile, full of razor incisors faced me. I understand why people like Helen don’t search for monsters, or deny their existence. People like her realize it before people like me. She understood me, or better yet, the monster inside of me.

Slenderman doesn’t exist. Sure. But you do. As do the monsters inside….

        Slenderman is real, or something like him. I know this from first hand honest to god (if god even exists) experience, years ago when I was a kid, LONG before I knew what slenderman was, I saw him, in my dream, it was a life-like walking dream, as if I was there, I saw him, and so did one of my friends, who had the exact same dream, I had never told him of mine. years later I heard about slenderman for the first time, I looked it up, and that was what I had seen.

      There are plenty of explanations for supposed ‘sightings’. 1. You want him to be there. You want to see him, so your mind tries to turn every knarly tree in the dead of night or when it’s mixed in the other trees into what you desire. 2. Mental issue, and/or a figment of the imagination. 3. Photoshop/publicity stunt.

      You people seem to forget: The idea of Slenderman was a made up story pulled out of someone’s ass. If he existed, all of us who have heard his name and seen his figure in a photo would be dead. It says not to think of him and pay him no mind. But once we indulge our imagination, even just slightly, in his inhuman form, that is paying him mind. I’m not dead, am I?

        Slender Man was not made up by some guy on Something Awful like everyone thinks. Reported sightings of him go back to the early 1900’s, and there were even stories of him going around elementary schools in the 90’s. Honestly, the guy who "invented" Slender Man just took those stories and added to them by adding tentacles and what not.

        I’m not saying he IS real, but I’m just stating that his stories have been around for a long time. I guess if you believe in demons, though, then Slender Man isn’t too far fetched, huh?

          Look Slender the game came out and they needed a story behind it. A one where the players would believe it. They didn’t start in the 90’s that’s just part of the scam. Slender documentaries are just a story to get people to play the game. Just slender stories grew and became popular. Slender sightings and publicity sights too.

        Slenderman is the coolest monster ever! He was also the most brilliant IDEA ever. It would be cool if he was real but the truth is… there are just to many explanations for what he is. Photoshop, Costumes, Stories, but that’s all it is. He is really cool, most people know deep down that he isn’t real. He is a great idea though! So everyone should keep it going, keep being creative with Slenderman! (your imagination can make things seem real too)

      Our neighbor, (I am not going to mention any names), a couple years ago he told my grandpa about something he saw in his yard. It was really tall, maybe taller than his truck, and it had eyes as big as apples and was lanky. It’s knees were backwards, so it was walking funny. And it was just hopping and scittering around the yard and kicking his dog (he said it was kicked clear across the yard). Another time he was coming home from work and it leaped right over his car and about caused him to wreck. Everyone thought he was crazy but I believed it (of course). So, I was just outside getting some straw for my dog back at the barn, and in the snow I saw a print that was shaped like a really big foot, I ignored it. Until I saw the toe print. I won’t be going back there anymore. (I posted this on Facebook so if this looks familiar to you…)

    For those of u who don’t believe in slender man please look at the wood carvings dating bak hundreds of years. They depict a skelital figure having multiple long arms stabbing a man. Another was the same figure only this time he was grabbiing a child from his home. The myth is pulled out of someones ass. It started in germany about a fairy who lived in the black forest and he would take children who have done bad things.he was known as “der grobbman”. He would stalk them until they told there parents what they did wrong. Also adding on to the wood carvings they were done by a man whose carvings always depicted realism wheather it be in the human body or nature. Except for the ones depicting slenderman. Its up to u to believe

      Except that the person who posted those “wood carvings” on something awful admitted to photoshopping them and making it all up. Everything on that forum was made up. Which is amazing, and is the real reason that slender man is so scary. Because I know for a fact he is fake, but he still scares me. At least he did, until slender came out and a bunch of idiots decided to hijack the stories without even researching the origin. Now apparently he smiles.

    First the Slender Man is fake. How could, scientifically, a creature or form be so tall, change shape and teleport? This is physically impossible. Also, scientifically he would be dead because no mouth, no eat. Life needs energy. Lastly, he would have no way to find you. He is blind, deaf, tasteless and no sense of smell. He could not find you. He would just be some tall, randomly shape changing blunderer in the woods that soon died of dehydration and starvation. Also, he was made up in 2007 or so in something called the "Something Awful" forums. He was created there in a photoshop contest and his story spread fast. He fake. The facts don’t lie. Just look for yourself. Now go to bed.

      You are using science. Science isn’t everything in the world. There IS magic. Besides, you really can’t prove he isn’t real. Ever heard of Ripley’s Believe it or Not!? Those things seem scientifically wrong, yet they are true. Ever heard of the 10 foot tall man? Slenderman is just one of those abnormally weird things, perhaps magic or something.

    I’m scrolling through the comments, wondering why the hell are people waisting time ranting about Slenderman? He is both real & not real. Your imagination makes him a reality, if you believe it & your scientific half makes your ‘irrational’ fear of the monster in the dark go away. Just get over the fact some people believe & others don’t.

    Now, I like how the Pasta started out, but seriously? The ending was weak. I was hoping for the fiancee & the other lady to see the Slenderman & scream their damn lungs out. After Raksha went completely insane with the fact two sides of the same chord were being pulled: Reality & Rationality.

      i agree with your first statement. but thanks to our minds he is easy to believe in him, as i USED to fear him. however lets not rule out s slender like being because different cultures have spoken of cheaters that where tall and stole their kids. however these may of been created to scare kids from going out at night which parents have done for years, such as the buggy-man and so forth. so take it as you will!

      I have seen him many times. Do not panic, for it only adds to his amusement.
