“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….

    I’m less scared of Slenderman than I am of the mostly incomprehensible pasta written about him.
    First of all, what kind of crap psychiatrist would behave at all like that? Not that the narrator wasn’t frustrating – no wonder the fiancée left, she’s so in contempt of him. Her obsession with Slender seems nearly romantic, which would have been a much creepier angle than “Screw y’all’ I know there’s a monster cuz I’m so smart.”
    Now, to give credit, I did think it was novel to show someone going *after* Slenderman, and to have him make her stab herself (which is what I think happened?) was a nice touch. But what was up with the ending? How does this have anything to do with “the monsters inside us”?
    Either I’m completely missing something and there’s way more subtlety in the end than is shown in the rest of the story, or this was just really unsatisfying.

      And now for an actual Slenderfan who once thought the same thing to step in…

      The Slenderman/Slender Man was created in 2009 in a Paranomal images contest on SomethingAwful. Almost everything from the “Der Ritter” woodcuts to the images of Slendy standing with children were created wholecloth by those users, specifically by Victor Surge. These images spread to 4chan and became popular on /x/. Eventually two SA goons approached Surge and asked to make a series. He said yes. They called the series Marble Hornets and it’s still going to this day (although it apparently is going to end soon).

      The video game you are referring to, “Slender: The Eight Pages”, did not come about until 2012. The Slenderman has literally existed as a concept since 2009, that’s three or four years prior to the game. The game did not “create” the Slenderman, that’s a very common misconception. All it did was bring him into the mainstream so whiny hipsters can bitch about how he’s “burned out” and “too mainstream”.

      Fuck those guys. There’s plenty of people who haven’t been introduced yet, and just because it’s overdone for you assholes doesn’t mean it’s overdone entirely. Both hipster Slenderfans and idiot S:TEP fans make me want to set things on fire. Like seriously, grow the fuck up, what are you guys, four? [/rant]

    Guys, just think about it. This might be breaking your religion, but don’t you think The Bible or God would’ve told us about this stuff. He didn’t so I don’t believe in him.

    Slender is NOT real. He is awesome but so freakin fake. Remember these type of horror stories” the rake, Freddy, my mom and just the plain paranormal are all entertainment stories, that’s why big people on youtube play these type of games.

    I agree, the SM is fake like everything else but the dreams are something their imagination ” seeing a very skinny guy with a tux” is a close enough way to say he was in your dreams. If he was real Area 51 and that stuff would have already delt with them

    The concept which Slenderman is based off of spans multiple continents and cultures and time. However, not all of these myths or origins were malignant in nature, that was sensationalized by the Marble Hornets to create what everyone now perceives him to be. I’ve seen several accounts where he, it, whichever you prefer, was a benign presence, that targeted those who were going to suffer a gruesome, painful death, and took them early to spare them that. Just something to think about, amid all the hype of the stories and games now.

    hi there.
    i am really scared, i can’t sleep and i can’t look out the window at night.
    i tried not to think of him but when i look at trees i directly imagine him.
    every thing i heard outside of my room and house i directly think of him. ( this happened before and everything was fine but, i just got curious so i went back and get more information about slenderman, so yeah it like happened again, so im scared.

    sometimes, i think, all of this is fake because it’s the internet, you can do whatever you want to do.
    i heard of the marble hornets, i thought it was fake but in my imagination, it tells me that it’s real, it’s a documentary, what could i ever imagine?

    is the story that i just read in this website true?
    or is it just a scary story to frighten people?

    i need an answer right now.
