Slenderman’s Origins

Slenderman started as a meme created by Victor Surge of the SomethingAwful forums in 2009, for a thread entitled “Create Paranormal Images” [link showing only Victor Surge's posts]. It has since evolved into something much more sinister and epic than its creator could have ever dreamed.

Re-created below are the original posts by Victor Surge.

“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…”

1983, photographer unknown, presumed dead.

One of two recovered photographs from the Stirling City Library blaze. Notable for being taken the day which fourteen children vanished and for what is referred to as “The Slender Man”. Deformities cited as film defects by officials. Fire at library occurred one week later. Actual photograph confiscated as evidence.

1986, photographer: Mary Thomas, missing since June 13th, 1986

1994: Wilks Estate. One subject reported nothing out of the ordinary before taking photograph. Lower stairs area was said to be very dark. Subject states that after the camera flash she heard a sound like a watermelon being *unable to understand subject*.


Subject unable to recall events after manor power failure. Unable to question other two identified subjects. Camera and film acquired from Gloria Cready, current resident of Woodview Mental Hospital and Psychological Rehabilitation Clinic. Film mostly uncontaminated despite mass of blood and human tissue present on camera. No positive ID on anomalous tall and slender subject. Facial blur caused by possible contamination.


Early digital analysis indicates tall subject may have no eyes. Anomalies, previously thought to be film errors and flash artifacts, now thought to be appendages.


Final identified subject reported missing along with other thirty-three patients and staff of Woodview Mental Hospital and Psychological Rehabilitation Clinic south wing.


Further inquiry to cease immediately.
(see report No.3339-2)

Steinmen Woods

Both subjects were hunting in the Steinmen woods four hours before sundown. Surviving subject states that while hunting both men grew uneasy as fog levels rapidly increased. A constant murmuring sound accompanied by a low hum eventually became apparent to the two men an hour after the fog increased. An object falling out of tree stuck one of the men in the left shoulder causing him to discharge his weapon. Object said to be the body of a man of unknown age. It was very precisely dissected, with major internal organs still contained within the rib cage in what looked to be clear bags. Surviving subject placed organ bag within backpack. Attack followed several minutes later after a “low children’s laugh, like a giggle”. Surviving subject ran until he reached his vehicle. Subject then drove to assumed safety.

Backpack destroyed.
Surviving subject is classified as a B7 witness. B7 witness to be placed in quarantine “Blind Box” until resolution.

2007:Investigation team discovered twenty-two bodies of both genders and various ages impaled on broken tree branches in a radiating circle pattern with chest mutilation as often noted with Slender Man. Upon confirmation, lead investigator ********* called for an immediate evacuation of investigation team at 1700 hours. Bodies first discovered at 1100 hours. Deadline for safe evacuation of team with only viewed physical evidence of Slender Man approximately 1730. Lost contact of team at 1725. Safety procedures fell well within established protocols. Reason for abnormality is unknown. Second team recovered camera equipment one week later. Slender Man safety procedures require this incident’s physical photographic evidence to be disposed of by no later than 10/20.

I honestly don’t get what half this poo poo means. I’m done with this Slender Man stuff. It’s starting to make me uneasy. It’s like reading the GBS ghost story threads before I go to bed. Why do I have to look at this stuff while it’s super late? 

Luckily, my friend is coming over.

So basically, Slender Man operates on what seems to be a sort metaphysical territoriality. If more you are aware of it, the more it is aware of you. By raising everyone’s perceptions at a base level, you could possibly raise a sort of interference. That would require a spread of Slender Man, Or Slender Man like, media.

Anyways, he’s not real, right? Why don’t you all post some more pictures and videos and….whatnot…

Also let’s not argue about how one interprets the videos. I’m sure it’s fine to type out what you think is happening since that is part of the fun. After all the video’s creator has the final word, and they’re…………deeeeeaad? Maybe?.
