So it’s come to my attention that there’ll be a new episode featuring “thin man” which is supposedly based off of slenderman. While I struggle to view it as based off of slenderman, I think an introduction should be in order since our two fandoms are bumping into eachother (many slenderseries start off as “ghostfacers” type deals.)
Onward, first and foremost, please watch this video here- "Intro to the Slenderverse"
As a short explanation, the slenderverse consists of both fans of and creators of slenderseries, or youtube-based series such as Marble Hornets. All of these series have one thing in common: Victor Surge’s mythical Slenderman, but some have elaborated on the myth. Out of the hundreds of series, four, excluding the foundation of the verse (MH), there are several that are considered to be “major” series that often overlap with one another. Those series include:
5. Caughtnotsleeping (this one really stays in its own little game)
aaaand 7. Whisperedfaith (although there are cameos in some of the other series, this is mostly based around the Rake and only became part of the ‘verse when it crossed over with KeretinGarden)
If you’re curious about more series, check out SlendyWeek or the Slenderman Mythos section at Unfiction.
Two of the biggest communities for the Slenderverse are Slendernation and Hornetcon, but the fandom has a large presence here on tumblr (but we also mostly keep to ourselves.)
As an end note, I made this post because a lot of the fandom and the creators of various slenderseries were worried about the episode possibly overshadowing the hardwork, dedication, and talent put into these series, much like the game Slender did when it first came out.
Many if not most of the people in the fandom are Supernatural fans too, and I know that if you like found-footage style movies or shows, you’ll love the slenderverse and will fit right in.
So that will be all, happy watching, and I hope you enjoy the episode!
Boop, this is a pretty cool post
people who exercise in order to get rid of period cramps are the ones surviving the apocalypse.
I know everyone always says “take photoshop away from me” with these kinds of things but
Jon Risinger posted outtakes from the Surgeons In Space: Deep Space Doctors outtakes so I had to make some official cinematic versions of their parody poses.
also I put my watermarks like right in the middle but i swear if you steal/repost i will find you and eat your first born child
This is exactly what I wanted to come of these.
