Clue: The Slim Man of Slaughter Creek

Post by PeachFreak » Sun Sep 16, 2012 6:55 pm

There are but three ways to leave the decrepit town of Slaughter Creek. The first is the lone broken road leading into the dark of the surrounding woods. But that would be dangerous for he lurks among those trees. The second is the old train station, a remnant of wealth and splendor long gone. But then you would have to stare upon the faces of those he has taken, their ignorant smiles shining out from the missing persons posters that clutter the walls. The third is to be taken yourself. To wander into the brush and wait until he comes for you. For one needs simply to stare onto the featureless face of the slim man. And then you are his.

But, alas, what ever happened to John Boddy? He and his young daughter arrived by train one morning, and both vanished by week's end. Did the grim specter of the woods claim them? Or is someone in the town hiding a dark secret of foul play?

Man, the colonel really let himself go!
Seriously, though, the designs are creepy, yet somewhat welcoming. The only thing I don't like is plum's head shape, but other than that, it looks great.
Stop winking at me, you oversexed Frenchman!

Haha, this definitely looks creepy, but I don't really understand the Slender Man thing. I don't buy into urban legends in general, but that one seems especially ridiculous. I read that symptoms that the Slender Man is watching you include paranoia and headaches. But still, a fun creepy story. I look forward to this.

I think - given the three ways out of town - I'd just wait for the train. Staring at missing posters, while sad, seems a lot more appealing than traveling through the woods to an almost certain death.
How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?

The interesting thing about the Slender Man is that he was born completely of the internet. The "real-life sightings" came afterward. And since then, people have been adding their own flares to the mythology. Such as "Slender Sickness," which causes violent coughing fits when he's around. And, of course, there's the question of what he actually does to you, and everyone has their own ideas about that.

I'm still working on this, for the record. It may just be published a bit closer to Halloween than I originally intended. So please continue to keep an eye out for updates.
