We didn't want to go, we didn't want to kill them, but its persistent silence and outstretched arms horrified and comforted us at the same time...

History Edit

On June 10th, 2009, a "'paranormal pictures" photoshop contest was launched on the Something Awful Forums. The contest required participants to turn ordinary photographs into creepy-looking images through digital manipulation and then pass them on as authentic photographs on a number of paranormal forums. Something Awful users soon began sharing their faux-paranormal creations with layered images of ghosts and other anomalies, usually accompanied by a fabricated witness account to make them more convincing. On June 10th, Something Awful user Victor Surge (real name Eric Knudsen) posted two black and white photographs of unnamed children with a short description of "Slender Man" as a mysterious creature who stalked children.

A day later, Victor Surge continued to improve upon the myth by adding another picture and a fake doctor's account. The following day, Something Awful user LeechCode5 posted a photograph of a burning building with a Slender Man backstory. On June 14th, Something Awful goon TrenchMaul reused the Slender Man character for his own story. The original thread, which still remains active today, extends for 46 pages as of June 2011.

The Slender Man is a manifestation of demonic energy that stalks the Slender Woods in search of new people to kill, something he has been doing all his life. Many times his motives been left unknown, but some theorize that SlenderMan is attempting to take control over our universe or fuse his realms with it. Sometimes, Slender Man has been seen as more destructive, such as rifting and leeching off various universes through Dimensional Bleeding. 

Whilst his true motives vary and are still not known, Slender Man is a powerful entity not to be scoffed at.
