Heading East

Damn, I guess my 'about me' is totally inaccurate now. Oh well. It's not like there was any particular reason I was headed West to begin with.

As the title suggests, I'm heading East right now for a while. I'm headed straight towards New Jersey and then up towards the Big Apple.(That is where M is currently residing, I believe.) Hopefully he and I can meet up and do...something impressive, to say the least, when I get there. It's going to take me a few weeks. It's a long trip on foot and by bus.

In other news, I'm trying out the fish symbol as a way of warding Him off. I'm also trying face-like symbols, water-based symbols, and something which resembles the sun. Haven't gotten any results to speak of so far, but I'll let you know if I do.

Also, I'm working on fixing my camera and trying yet again to get those pictures from the other night up. Also, I can show off the wicked beard I've grown as a result of not being able to shave consistently! Yeah!

Not much else, I'm headed to a Mcdonald's for some cheap food and then busing out of town. Should I start a twitter and keep you guys updated through that?

Peace out,

Light vs. Dark Test results (RESULTS ADDED)

EDIT: Well, fuck. My camera just does not want to upload the pictures of that night while Tall Dark and Slender is around, so it looks like you will have to do with my boring scientific crib notes. I'll try and set the scene as accurately as I possibly can for you, so you understand exactly what my experiment was like.

First off, I want to discourage you all from doing anything I do on this blog except in practice. If I give you a test result like "Slenderman likes light" and tell you to stay out of the light, just plain stay out of the light. No need to go through what I put myself through to prove to yourself that it works. Because let me tell you, what I did was really stupid.

There's my disclaimer. Now, onto my notes. I took these an hour after my experiment, so pardon if they are a bit...'shaky'.

-Hypothesis: The Slenderman will favor dark conditions to light ones due to low visibility for prey.
-Conclusion: The hypothesis was incorrect. Slenderman favors light. possibly due to connecion[sic] to society?

-Supplies included ten wax candles, $2 each, and one lamp for 15$ from a pawn shop.

-Each of these was placed strategically within an abandoned building, seperate rooms for both candles and the lamp. operator symbol(X) drawn over windows of building for initial protection, effects began wearing off after only one night. The lamp was placed in one room, while the ten candles were split in half between two other rooms. Another room remained dark, and the hallway itself had no power thus alsa[sic] remained dark.

-Strategic observance point: crawl space within the hallway just to the left of Dark Room(DR)

Now, my notes get a little fuzzy after that, so let me just relate to you what happened next:

I had my experiment all set up, and my Operator symbols were just starting to wear off. As i mentioned in my notes, I've noticed they start to lose their effect on Him after only about one night. So after one evening, he drew closer to te house and I could tell he was planning on coming in. What I did next was very stupid, I know.

I let him in.

You may call me a fool, but that night that the (X) symbol started to lose its effect, I let Slenderman into the building I had chosen for my experiment. I didn't actually watch him come in, but he must have sensed somehow that I was not planning on running or keeping him out of the building.

Approximately one hour later, I had my candles lit and my lamp turned on, and a very tall friend mulling around my hallways. Needless to say, it was not a fun moment. I hid in each room at least twice, checking closets and corners for Him to make sure I hadn't missed him. Then I led him down the hallway into a seperate room, shut the door, and dove into my crawl space before he had time to get out and find me again.(Personally, I think this plays into M's theory that the SLenderman is ignorant or 'stupid' in a way; he fell for it, every time.)

I repeated that final part five times to make sure I got it right, before I tried bailing on the experiment and fleeing the building. I did not make it out, and that terrifies me. The last memory I have in the building is opening the front door and fidning him standing right there, tentacles out-stretched and everything. Let me tell you...I thought I was fuckin' dead. Luckily, I only got 'moved' as M calls it, and wound up waking up outside in the grass about two miles away. That's a far-ass jump, which scares me even more. But I go tmoving and I've been on the run the last week or so, which is why there's been silence on my end fo ra while.

The results of my experiment?

I foundthat roughly 65% of the time, Slenderman chose to occupy the lit rooms over the dark rooms in his search for me, whether or not I was there or not. The other 35% of the time he either stood in the hall without moving, or chose the dark rooms instead. Additionally, 4 out of the 5 times I watched him in the hall, he chose to enter a lit room instead of a dark room. This was not as I originally theorized, because I assumed he would pick dark roomsfor the fact that his prey would have lower visibility.

I suspect that He may be drawn to man-made light due to its obvious indication of society...i.e.- man-made light exists where there He connects lights with us, and thinks that we will always actively seek out the light for shelter and protection. Not to mention, there ar elights everywhere in ou rculture; lamps, TVs, street-lights. etc.

My advice? Stay in the dakr when you can. The day-tim eis fine because that's natural and not man-made, but if you sleep in a motel room or go inside anywhere, KEEP THE LIGHTS OFF if you can help it.

I don't know if this will work for everyone. But it applied to me and I hope it'll help you guys out, too.

God, I'm dead tired. Getting touched by Slenderman and moved? Most painful thing in the world...

Peace out, everyone. Until next time.

I'm having a little trouble with my camera and setting up the pictures that I took in a reasonable time-frame, so bare with me. Boy, do I have a story to tell you guys. I'd just liek to go on record as saying that, after reviewing all my evidence, I can tell you he seems to like (man-made) light over dark, empty spaces.

I'll edit this post when I've fiigured out my problems. Peace out for now.

Facing Hell

Jesus Christ, I gotta get the fuck outta dodge. Heading west again. I'm going to have to be careful about this, because he seems really determined to show up wherever I go. It's like he's faster, or something. Like he's everywhere. It's kind of scaring me, because I don't know what it means.

I think I've gotten over my flu, in the first place. I'm still a little ache-y, but I'll be okay.

This is going to be a short post, honestly. Nothing much has happened in Denver, but I did get some nice replacement clothes and sprayed 'em all up with the Operator symbol. I also have a few more experiment shirtswith various other symbols, to try and see if anything else works against him.

I think now would be a good time to prepare my experiment with lights, since I'm seeing him so freqeuntly. I'm going to load up on candles for it, get the hell out of Denver, and then try at the nearest small town what I'm planning. I want to see how he responds to light vs. dark. This is different from the night/day thing because this is man-made stuff. Lamps, fires, etc., etc.

You'll see.


Saturday, August 7, 2010


Been down with the flu these past few days. It hasn't been fun, and it's very surreal. You think all of your normal problems are gone, out the window, never to return and then, bam- life hits you with a little slice of normality, reality to really make you feel out of place.

It's tough, what we're all going through. Some of us can handle it on our own, some of us need a little more help than that. The important thing is, we're still going. Those of you out there running from him, fighting him, doing your best to live despite him; good for you. Don't let that bastard get ya.

It's not easy, but nothing in life really is or should be. You don't learn anything from 'easy.' Those of us running from him, we're in this together. Remember that, when you're feeling down and depressed about all this. It wont be a magic bullet, but goddamn if it isn't nice to have soem support. That's what I've learned in the past two weeks, is that support is there whether you realize it or not. You may feel like there is no hope, but remember that there are many others out there, just like you, just as scared.

And unless we're all screwed, which I am not inclined to believe, then there is still hope.

...I had a real good thing going with this girl.

For a long time, she was the light of my life. It wasn't a perfect fairy tale, but dammit I loved her, and it taught me a lot. I thought I was going to get married, go to college, raise a family and end up with a career. If you fight this bastard's control for any reason, any AT ALL, fight him because of what he took from you. Fight him because if he takes you life, he takes those memories. He takes everything.

And he can't be allowed to do that.

I think the reason he stands out so much, why he's so easy to spot, is because he's not supposed to be here. Every time you see him it's like a warning bell in your head going 'Huh. That's odd. It wasn't here the last time I checked.' That's what we've got against him, that's our advantage. We can't go fight him fists and guns a-blazing, so we have tofight him by living as and surviving as best we can despite the damage he's done. There's a lesson in that, somewhere.

It was my seventeenth birthday when I started seeing him. I'd heard about him online, and Marble Hornets had become a favorite time-waster of mine. I never thought I'd end up fucking posting about him myself, finding out we'd somehow brought him to life through our fear and our paranoia and our stories. I couldn't believe it when I first saw him, I thought it had to be my imagination. I had a paper route at the time, and I had to get up early every weekend to deliver. I'd look down the road and see this tall, swaying figure just standing there.

It couldn't really be him, so it just had to be my imagination. Until he was in my bedroom. Until he was staring right at me and the truth was in my face and there was only one option; deny the truth before me, or run and let everyone I know and love die.

Or let my girl die.

I couldn't do that, so I packed up and ran. It's been an entire year and I still can't comprehend the Slenderman fully. Every time I see him, I still get that 'It must be my imagination' feeling. It never goes away, and it never will for most of us. I think it's what we've been given as an advantage over him. And we'd best not squander it, because it's all we've got. Knowledge and understanding is our best weapon, and that's why I've set out to experiment and teach peopl ewhat works and what doesn't. We need to live because ultimately, life is our most secure foothold over him. Hecan never have it, if we don't let him.

I'm tired. In too many ways, I'm tired. I'm stil lcamped outin Denver, on a roof, sleeping shitty because of the flu. Haha, but I'll be okay. Hopefully I'll have som eneat pictures to put up here soon, and an interesting experiment in a week or two. Until then, peace out everyone.
Keep fighting. If not for yourself then for me, ya fuckers. :P

Day/Night Test Findings

Alright, alright...I'm alive, I promise. And as such, I should post those experiment results, right?

Alright. So, on my walk out of town, it soon became clear that the whole thing was a very bad idea. After a only one day, he caught up with me and was most definitely on my trail. While this is what I wanted to some extent, I hadn't counted on how close he would get or how fast he would close the gap between us.

My original plan was to head to some small town and load up on supplies, but I ended up detouring to Denver because it is a big city where I can easily confuse Slenderman and get him lost. I needed to get him off of my tail. So I went roof-jumping and, well. I'm not very good at it, haha.

Long story short, I fell off of a four stoy building and onto one of those sets of metals fire-escape stairs. My face is pretty banged up right now, I'll try to get pictures if I can.

But that is, really, besides the point. The results of my experiment seem to indicate that Slenderman has no preference for day or night, whatsoever. I saw him just as often during the day as I did during the night, although it's entirely possible I missed him a few times during night-time hours. I'm not sure on that, needs further study. I have two theories on why the results ended up the way they did, though.

I imagine that since he's dreamt up by us as being a stalker creature, he really has no preference for either day or night for this exact reason. A lot of the old pictures show him during the day, and it's the 'opposite of what you'd expect' syndrome sort of thing. You know the whole 'he haunts you even when you think it's safe' thing.

Which means, basically, he hunts at night for the flip side of that; night-time is when our fears come alive.

I'm not sure how effective or interesting this test was, but I sure got my ass handed to me for the results. I hope you're happy, fellow stalked people. I'm going to be laying low in Denver for a couple of days, so I've got time for emails if anyone wants to. I'm going to look for soem more suitable bandages for my face, though. This shirt I stole and ripped apart hurts like a bitch haha

Now, on that note, I'll be leaving this post here and clicking submit. I'll probably pot something tomorrow, to update you a little bit on my...'story'...I guess. How I came to be stalked and all that. :/

Peace, keep safe

Oh and NEXT TEST: Experimenting with LIGHTS! >:D

Tuesday, August 3, 2010

Ow. Apparently I don't have this roof jumping thing down yet.

I fell mid-jump and cut my face up pretty badly. I'd post my findings but right now I'm sore all over and need to get some rest. I'll let you know what happened later, just posting so everyone knows I'm okay.

Getting out of Aurora, plus some speculation

It's times like this I wonder if investing in a cell phone would be a good idea.

I'm going to be getting out of town tonight, and beginning a hike a few miles long. It may take me a few days to get to a different town, settle in, and get myself put back together for another entry in this blog. So, if you don't here from me, that's why. Hopefully. I haven't picked where I'm going yet because I want the most effective walk and I have to head west, so my options are limited.

I'm interested to see how our tall friend reacts to this and if I'll see him at all along the way. I'll get pictures if he shows up at all.

So, on that subject, it's time for some brain-shitting from Shaun! As I already mentioned, I'm going to be hiking my way westward for the next few days, and I want to observe a particular phenomena. If Slenderman does actually show up while I'm out there, I wonder...does he come out more in the day, or more in the night? This could be of great help in moving about without being followed by him, which I think is a good thing. I don't think anyone WANTS Slenderman on their ass, right? Right.

Another thing that has been bugging me is the whole business with trees. Ever since M posted that thing about trees and brains up on his blog, I've been really stuck on this one idea. Things we know:

-trees are some of the oldest living things on the planet
-trees have an interconnected hive-mind thing that lets them know when danger is afoot.(thanks Scarlett, whoever and wherever you are!)
-the trees seem to give Slenderman power
-many of his victims are killed in the forest.

What does all this mean? Well, I don't know. At least I don't know for certain. But I have some theories.

From what we can tell, Slenderman is linked to trees in some very obscure, very arcane(sort of?) way. He seems tied not to their biological systems, but to their emotional and cognitive ones instead. This leads me to believe that he may be part of the hive-mind that trees have with each other. I'm sure not all trees do this, but a great amount of them might and maybe he draws his power from that. Note: NONE of this is certain and I don't expect everyone to 100% agree with me. I'm just throwing this out here because it seems logical and I need something for my mind to chew on for a while.

Now, there is also Slenderman's strange behavior and appearance. He's not human, he's not tree, but he's sort of somewhere in between. Like a tree trying to BE a human. You see where I'm going with this? Slenderman is mostly ignorant of human culture, customs, and biological systems. He's taken what he sees on the outside; the business suit; the death-'hug'; and th eoverall appearance, and he's made it into his 'skin' so to speak.

Talking about this stuff makes it feel even creepier than it was in my head, honestly...:/

Anyway, when Slenderman touches you, everything sort of...falls apart. M and I discussed this and we both agree it is both very painful and very scary. It's like the world being broen up piece by piece from the inside out. My theory n this is that when he touches you, he's trying to get into your brain in the same way that trees are linked. He wants to create a human hive-mind, which explains the hallowing out and a lot of other things.

He is a creature of feeling, a creature brought about almost purely by our human fears. But he is not part of this world and he is not supposed to be. Which is why I believe he is trying to create the human hive-mind that he is. He wants in, and we have to keep him out.

I'd continue this enchanting reverie, but it looks like the family I used this laptop from is coming out. Gotta go skip town I guess.

Hello from Aurora! do I start this?

I'm being followed by Slenderman. That's the first thing you should know about me. I started this blog to record my travels and thoughts to while I run away from him. I don't want this to sound like something casual, though, because believe me; it's not. Being followed...chased...whatever-the-hell'd by Slenderman is a very serious matter and should be treated with an obscenely high amount of care and understanding.

And you're not being stalked, you're being CHASED. The sooner you understand this, the better.

My name is Shaun, by the way. M over on mentions me in his latest post. Check him out, because you're gonna need his rules and his knowledge if you are or ever find yourself being chased by Slenderman. He's got a lot of good info over there, and he might even be the only reason I'm still alive.

I've been followed about a year now, since my seventeenth birthday actually. A real kick in the ass, to be honest with you. I was all set to go to college, I had a great thing going with a girl...needless to say, Slenderman ruined that for me entirely. Right now I'm in Aurora, Colorado and that's why I have time to settle down and type up this blog post. And I'm not even sure why I'm doing it in the first place.

I want people to know that by running, by learning, and by understanding, you can win. Maybe not in the sense of "Oh look at me I'm happy and back with my family and I'm all saved from the evils of Slenderman YAY!" but at the very least by saying to Slenderman "Fuck you and fuck what you've done, I'm still going to live." I think that's what Slenderman is, personally. He's something not of this world, something from...out there, wherever out there is. And he directs the course of your life off of the path it was meant to go. So, maybe just by fighting it, you win back some small part of yourself, some very necessary thing within you.

I could go on but then this would get very preachy and you don't want that in my first post.

So Slenderman is one dangerous dude. We got that. I don't have much to offer any of you right now, but I do want to be of help. I'm a bit of a loon, so I'm willing to try anything. I'll be running myself through some 'experiments' here in the next few days, to test a theory of mine about the Slenderman. If it works or if it doesn't, I'll post the results.

Aside from this, this blog will just be full of my theories, my observances, and my dealings with Slenderman as I experience them. Think of me as a scientist, of sorts. :D ...I'm not worried about whether or not you'll be taken or followed by Slenderman as a result of watching this blog. Chances are if you're reading this, you probably already are. Or you're going to be, soon.
