Entry #1


Alex has gone missing. He has been missing for thirteen days and none of us have a clue as to where he is. The production crew and I have notified the authorities, they have been looking for him for the past few days. But alas, they were able to find nothing. Officially, Alex McKinley is a cold case...

I refuse to believe that.

While rummaging through his stuff, I found blood on his bed sheets, objects overturned in the hallway. The police had been through the crime scene, but no evidence aside from the blood was found. It seemed like Alex was fighting with himself or with nothing.

Several days before his disappearance, he had come up to me and was paranoid. He had seen something that had scared him and he wanted to tell me all about it, but he was holding it back. Whatever he saw disturbed him to the point where he knew if he told anybody, they'd be in danger.

Anyway, I was looking through his stuff. What can I say I was feeling sentimental. Apart from old photos of times when we were kids and old video tapes of our mini movies for history class, I found a collection of labeled tapes. Each had a number on them, all in all, there were thirty of them. This was entry #1.

Alex walks down his stairwell of his home, camera in hand. The camera shakes, causing me to feel ever so nauteous, but suddenly the camera focuses. It's the window just by the foot of his stairs. He presses the camera through the blinds and scans the outside area. There is silence. The audio of the camera must have been off because I couldn't even hear Alex's breathing or footsteps.

Alex pans the camera slowly from left to right, he must've heard something outside. I realized that this must have been one of the later nights, perhaps around the same time that Alex came up to me to try and talk about it. He was paranoid now, always carrying his camera, waiting to find something. But what was something? Well, in this first tape, he caught something.

As he reaches all the way to the right, he pauses for a moment. The camera readjusts itself to focus on something standing outside near his garage. The figure appears to be a tall, slender figure. At its current height, his head reaches the second floor of Alex's household. Its hands are raised into the air, as if conducting a prayer outside of Alex's home. The hands were stretched to horrifying lengths, as if he were Mr. Fantastic from Marvel's Fantastic Four, but only boney. The creature appears to be a mix of Mr. Fantastic himself and Jack Skellington from Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas, only scarier. Looking at him makes the hair on my arms stand, and the nerves in the back of my neck jitter.

The camera shakes ever so slightly and the man's head turns with a quick jolt. Almost simulataneously, as if startled by the creature's sudden movement, Alex jerks backward, turns, and runs back up the stairs. To his room. To safety. The video cuts.


I rewound the tape several times, freeze framing it at that exact moment when he comes across the figure. At the moment where he tilts his head to the camera, sensing Alex's presence, I can see his face almost perfectly. "Who is this man?" I ask myself. His face is void of any facial features. He is missing a mouth, eyes, ears, a nose, everything. He's a sculptures mask, complete in shape, but not in form. It's skin is a dead pale, and its fingers are that of F. W. Murnau's immortal vampire Count Orlock of Nosferatu: long, bony, and like its arms it seems to stretch onward without end. The figure appears to be dressed formally, in a "men-in-black" suit. Though the only harm the creature's doing in the video is looking at Alex, there is an ominous tone in the video. The creature, I come to understand, is dangerous and it was looking for Alex.

As I write these words, I come to realize that whatever this thing is, it has Alex. The blood in his home, could belong to him or it could belong to the monster. I can never know without further investigation. I can not turn to the police, who knows what they would do with these tapes. If it gets placed in the cold case division, with Alex's file, I will never be able to find Alex. I am set to take all of Alex's videos home and watch them, try to find the connections between this creature and Alex's steady decline into madness. Until next time...

Entry #2


I have reviewed several video tapes since my last session. I haven't really come up with much, a lot of it is behind the scenes stuff for our movie. You see, while all of this going down, Alex and I were working on a movie. It was our first movie that was being funded by a major production. They provided with the cameras, a crew, and even helped us find some of the actors. Our movie: April Showers, followed a man's struggle into finding the murderer of one of his girlfriends of his past before he murders his new girlfriend. Call if cliche or cheesy or whatever, it was the movie Alex and I wanted to film. And he we had everything perfect, it was our dream come true. At long last, we'd be making the film we had long dreamed of making.

The video, I found, must have been on one of our night shoots. It was late, and Alex was driving home when he filmed it. Here's what he had to say.

The video plays focusing on a long dark highway, Alex is filming as he drives. Still, nobody sees Alex face, you can hear voice this time. It was a relief to hear his voice again, I felt comforted. I really do worry for him. The blood on his bed sheets were not very reassuring, especially since the blood was confirmed to be his.

Anywho, Alex is recalling a previous tale that happened a few minutes before the camera started rolling. "Was working late tonight. I was taking my dog Sierra down this road for an evening walk. That dog needed the exercise anyway. But, um, as we reached this corner," a light was appearing from the distance, a streetlight. "we could see this really tall man standing in the middle of the street. Sierra just lost it, couldn't stop her from barking. The man didn't move, he was just standing in the middle of the street, completely still. For whatever reason, it really upset her and she kept tugging me back towards home on her leash. I have a few minutes left on the battery, so, I figured I'd come back; see if the guys still here. And he was about here, I believe."

At this moment, Alex had parked by the streetlight. A few feet away to the right was the sign that led to the camping grounds of which part of April Showers was to be shot. We hadn't got that far just yet, we wouldn't start filming there for another two days. Alex opens up the car door and steps out into the open street and pans the camera from left to right, scanning the darkness. I kept my eyes peeled for any signs of movement. Any sign of the tall man I had seen in the first video, but alas I had found nothing.

"Okay, well, you can't really see that well on the camera," said Alex.


"No shit," I found myself telling him, even though I knew he wouldn't respond.

"but I can't see him anywhere. He probably moved on, by now. Twenty minutes, yeah... I'm sure he moved on." at that moment, Alex focused on a single position in the field. It was black, I couldn't see anything, but I couldn't tell if Alex saw anything. The camera rested there for a good three seconds, maybe he did see anything, he wasn't saying anything. "Yeah... There's just something about th-"

The video cut there.


The surprise cut, I admit had startled me. My overreactive imagination told me that the "thing" had got my poor buddy from behind. But no, Alex had warned that he only had a few minutes left on his camera battery. And being that this probably took place before the events of Entry #1, I firmly believe that nothing happened that night other than him coming across the creature on the street with Sierra. As for that slightly eerie pause he had in the darkness, I really can't come to a conclusion if he saw anything or not. He never spoke a word of that night to anyone.

This is like finding a secret chapter of a life to a person you knew your whole life. Me and Alex were childhood friends for well over a decade, to find that he'd keep this whole affair a secret from me, is unnerving. But I know that he probably did it for the well-being of not only for myself, but for the well-being of everyone else as well.

Like Alex, Sierra has gone missing too. However, the search came up with a dog-like corpse in the woods surrounding Alex's house. The dog was mangled beyond means, it was barely even possible to identify the corpse. The police believe that it was some woodland beast, but I believe that it's probably the tall man that was outside Alex's house in Entry #1.

Goodness, what am I saying? Was that creature even real? Can such a thing possibly exist? But if that's not the reason, what happened to Alex?

Entry #3


After reviewing over thirty of Alex's tapes and roughly twenty days worth of filming, I have come to realize that more than half of the videos I've been viewing are not related to April Showers. At some point, Alex became paranoid and was filming himself exclusively. He had the camera with him at all times. Half of the time he seemed like he was waiting for something to come for him. What happened to him?

The following video contains a montage of at least seven of the videos I've seen. Each are I would assume, unrelated to the figure from Entry #1, but Alex's behavior in the videos, for me, is quite disturbing. At this point, I believe that whatever that thing from Entry #1 was, was stalking him. And Alex wanted to find it, but once he did, he wanted out. I'll have to do more on this creature, try to find something new.

The video starts on Alex's knee. A crumpling of a paper is heard as he is drawing madly over the table just by his couch. Unsattisfied with his work, he tears the sheet of paper out and lays it to rest beside him on the couch. Alex stands, leaves sight of the camera and returns with a fresh stack of papers. He sits and begins to write (or draw) something new.

The video cuts.

The next video starts on the forest just outside of Alex's house. He is scanning the trees from his upstairs bedroom window, looking for the "thing" I assume. After a good ten seconds of nothing, the video cuts.

A video plays of Alex in Wal-mart, he is pointing the camera down to his feet, he probably didn't even realize that the camera was on. The camera points to a Sony DVC camera casette. Alex needed more film. It was obvious, he was filming himself every day, after all. Just as he grabs the casettes and makes his way to the cashier lanes, the video ends.

The next video plays. Alex is sitting in his home office, typing at his computer. The camera is facing his side profile and he is looking concerned, tired, and exhausted. I can't really place a finger on when this is taking place. It could be during the filming of April Showers, but I remember just last month when Alex suddenly just pulled the plug. It had come out of nowhere, he just one day decided that he didn't want to do the project. For the next month, he doesn't speak to any one of the crew, including me, his best friend. Next thing I know, he's missing, leaving behind only blood on a pillow.

Alex's head jerks towards the open window to his right. The video sees and hears nothing, but Alex thought he did. He stands, looks out the window, but sees nothing unusual. He sighs and sits down again, checking his watch. He looks at the video, he looks so tired. He reaches out his hand and turns off the camera. The video cuts.

The next video plays of Alex outside in the woods in broad daylight. He is swinging the camera wildly among the trees. Once again, he is looking for something in the trees, but I can not see anything. Maybe, Alex believed that the creature from the video lived in the trees. It's a theory, I'll have to look into. As the camera steadies on the open field that closes the gap from Alex's house to the set of April showers, the video ends.

Another short video of Alex plays as he drives home. The camera rests on the dashboard, his face still and emotionless. I can see the gas station to his left, perhaps this is continuing from when he left the Wal-Mart. The video cuts.

The final video of this entry features Alex peering out his window. The camera is on his office desk, filming his back as he scans the outside. It is daylight, I don't know if the creature even appears in the daylight. Alex was testing out his theories on this creature day to day from the looks of these videos. At this stage, Alex appears to be paranoid and curious altogether. He wants to find the creature, but is afraid of what will happen once he does.

Alex's phone rings from the desk and it startles him. He retrieves his phone, it is only on alarm, he shuts it off and looks at the camera. Quickly, he grabs the camera and heads outside. The video cuts.


As I've said before, Alex was paranoid by now. Whatever he saw, whatever found him, scarred him. It scared the living daylights out of him, which I find funny, because nothing scared Alex. He was always the brave one of our group, to see him this way is disheartening. I wonder... will I be the same when all is said and done?

Entry #4


I have done my research, believe it or not, I did it on Google. Now, I know Google, like Wikipedia, isn't necessarily the best resource, but when you've got nothing, it's something. The creature in Entry #1 is officially called The Slender Man. His name is derived off of its slender figure. This creature has been among us for years, and only a handful of people have seen him. Alex is one of them.

According to mythology of the creature:
  • He wears a black suit.
  • His limbs stretch far beyond normal human capabilities.
  • His face is distorted beyond measure. It is impossible to identify any traces of eyes, nose, or even a mouth.
  • He apparently has multiple limbs, even walking on these extra limbs at times.
  • It has a liking for children, often taking them for his own.
  • He likes foggy areas or woodland areas, because it conceals its presence from its victims.
  • It is claimed that once his limbs are outstretched, his victims become paralyzed and he is able to take them.
  • Children often have nightmares and report strange visions of the slender man before their disappearances.
  • Many believe that if you can not see him, you are not his prey. But if you do, then he wants you, and nothing will stop until he gets you. Alex...
Along with my research, I have found several cases of people encountering the slender man, some have actually died. I think what horrifies me most is that all of these cases occured here: in Stirling, Pennsylvania.

Eight days later, the case was called off. On one of the police reports were traces of blood and human tissue along with scrawled, mad, crazy writing all over the report. Although I wasn't able to get my hands on the report itself, I was able to record what the messages were. Many of the writing was illegible, I tried my best to fill in the blanks.

"6/11/93 Fog rolled in 3 PM. It appeared 3:27. Mark and Evan went outside. Couldn't cover them. Fog too thick. Screams and sounds like a baby laughing but deeper. It's out in the fog. We may be a little outside of town, but someone will come."

"6/13/93 Rest of us can't sleep. No food. No power."

"6/14/93 WHAT DOES IT WANT!? Tom showed me that *illegible* file."

"6/15/93 WILK'S PLACE (circled) *illegible* SAME SAME SAME SAME SAME."

"*undated*SLENDER MAN SLENDER MAN KILL US ALREADY KILL KILL KILL."


Another case, happened three years ago, in the woods surrounding Alex's home. The event was befallen on a couple hiking through the woods. The investigative report details a squad venturing into the forest in search of the missing hikers. The first team's squad leader recalls finding the couple's corpses deep within the woods, bodies impaled on high branches. He ran away, sensing some sort of danger and all he could remember were their screams. One week later, a second team ventured into the woods and found the first team's equipment, bodies nowhere to be found, but blood and human tissue were found on their equipment.

Another case of one Jake Miles, occured just six years ago.

Excerpt from The Daily News (Stirling's local newspaper):

QUOTE
Stirling - A missing seven year old boy Jake Miles of Stirling, Pennsylvania, has his neighborhood in an uproar. The boy went missing from his backyard at around 5:20 P.M. on Sunday the 18th of October. His mother reported seeing him playing by the trees of his backyard prior to his disappearance and noticed nothing suspicious.

School officials state that in the weeks leading up to his disappearance, that he had been irritable at school and at home, often complaining of a tall, very thin man in all black. Police declined to comment at this time.


***


Shortly after his disappearance, Mrs. Miles was rummaging through her sons belongings and came across several drawings. The images she found drove her to move away from her home and to this day, she has never revisited Stirling.

The case of Jake Miles is the most current child disappearance related to the slender man mythology. Not many people around here seem to know about. And if they do, they don't want to talk about it.

But this event happened once before, only it was mass disappearances. These took place at the park, the orphanage, and other areas populated by children. The photographers of these pictures have gone missing, presumably dead.

One of the photos I obtained from Stirling Libraries of the local studies collection, was accompanied by an unknown quote.

"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..."

What's worst, the latest video I have found of Alex is of him in the same playground as that first picture.

The video plays with Alex walking through the park with his camera. It is nightfall and he has heard a sound. The video itself has no audio, it is dead silent. He passes by a see saw with both of the far ends lifted into the air. The swingset, a couple of feet away from the slide the little girl from picture one was on, is moving quickly. It is as if somebody whacked the swing and ran away, just to toy with Alex.

Alex suddenly turns around, probably hearing something behind him. He gazes at the see saw, one of the ends has now been flipped. For the time being, Alex is staring at the see saw in wonder, but then he sees something move from the side. His camera jerks just in time to see a tall, slender figure dart behind a tree. Alex runs after the figure, trying to capture it on film, but once he's behind the tree, he sees nothing.

He spins around, scanning the woods, the park, and the tree one last time, landing on a happy faced trash can. The slender man has disappeared once again. Alex drops his arm, clunking the camera to his side. The camera films the ground as Alex walks away just before it cuts to black.


This entry and entry #1 are the only entries that feature no audio. And, coincidentally, they are the only entries that feature the slender man on film. I am beginning to consider that Alex, himself, took the audio out of these films. So far, none of these videos have given me any clue as to where Alex is or whether or not he's still alive. But I can't give up.

Holy fuck. This is CREEPY, in the good way. Where did you get those pics from? Is the Slender Man a real thing? Eeek!

Great job Nohea, loving thisstory.

Drake Woods - November 29, 2010 10:23 PM (GMT)
I dunno, is it real? :P

Thanks Alex :) I'm loving it as well.

Neely Michaels - November 29, 2010 11:44 PM (GMT)
I am officially freaked out. :ph43r:

Thanks a lot, Nohea!

Good job, btw. This is a really good story. :)

Entry #5


Since the last entry, I have investigated the park from the last entry. Although I wasn't stupid like Alex, I went during the day. I don't feel very safe now, venturing out at night. I know it's weird, but I feel as if something's watching me. I feel as I write this, something is at the window, breathing onto the glass, rattling its fingers against the window pane. I'm scaring myself, I should stop. But it is what I feel. And half the time what I feel usually turns out to be correct. Although, I hope to God I'm wrong this time.

As for my investigation, I have come to no answers. I saw nothing, a little girl jumped onto the slide and rode it down face first. She looked at me, smiled, and ran to her mother, who was sitting on a nearby bench. There was a boy sitting on the swing, his father playfully pushed him back and forth, making the boy swing higher with each push. In the distance, as the park met the forest line, several kids played tag and hide-and-seek. I worry for them. After reading the story of Jake Miles and the mythology behind the slender man...

I would dare not wish what happened to Alex onto any life, especially that of children. I long to talk to these kids, ask them if they know. But sometimes, it's best just not knowing. For all if I knew, just remembering him would bring him to them. And if that's the case, I'm a lost cause. It would tie along greatly to my own paranoia that I'm being watched. It's because I remember. I've seen him, and he knows I seen him, just as Alex did. There I go again, scaring myself. Note to Dean: Stop mentioning the slender man in terms of watching you.

So, with my investigation coming to a bitter end, I decided to return to my home and watch a few more tapes of my dear old friend Alex. I must admit, during the three hours of video tape and as night fell, I had the urge to venture back outside to the park. But, alas, fear got the best of me and I stayed home. But I came across a video that was worthy of an entry.

The video is the first to include myself inside. It is of both me and Alex in the forest surrounding Alex's home, we are conversing over April Showers. The two of us scout scenery and converse about what Alex wanted out of the shots. I was, after all, his co-director and writer. I had a lot of say in what went down during the shooting, which is probably why it came as such a surprise to me that Alex pulled the plug on the project without even consulting me. I didn't know what his problem was, he wouldn't talk to me or anyone else for that matter. It really was the first time I had seen Alex behave in such a manner.

So, anywho...

The video starts. "Alright man, it's recording." I told Alex. We are standing in a gazebo, overlooking the forest. Alex paces around the floor, holding a script in his hand.

"Alright, this is the gazebo that I want Chris to return to near the end of the movie, and he finds Lisa's character."

"It's supposed to be raining during this scene, right?"

"Yeah, I'm thinking we could-"

At this point, a loud buzzing noise overpowers the video and I am unable to hear anything me or Alex says. The weird thing is, I don't really remember what Alex and I talked about that day. I mean, I remember the gist of it, which wasn't really important, but I just can't remember in detail. After about fifteen seconds, the film springs back to life.

"So we'll have Chris's character have his monologue about October. We actually have some really nice shots to shoot this scene from. It's all about creativity right -"

As I focus the camera on the stream just beyond the gazebo, a second noise distorts the video. Once again, I can not hear a word from Alex or myself. The noise grows loud and I strain to sit through the rest of the video, but just as quickly as it came, the sound disappears again as Alex finishes his sentence.

"-area. I dunno, it's secluded. It's nice."

The vid cuts, but picks up at a new area. An open area, taking place at the field a few miles away from Alex's house. This particular area is more wooded than not, an old fireplace is a few feet ahead of my camera. Alex is pointing to it.

"Rolling!"

"Hey, you're getting the hang of it!" joked Alex. "So, I'm thinking that this area is where Chris encounters the figure. The one that's been sending him all the creepy messages."

"Right, gotcha."

"I also want," in the video, I coughed. Which I wouldn't say was a weird thing, but just a few moments after I coughed, the distortion returned and Alex's voice became amplified. "to have, maybe, Aaron here as well and so he could just pull Chris's character back into reality once the scene is over." audio returns to normal here. "So all-in-all, we're gonna need Chris, Aaron, and James for the figure.

"I really like this treeline in this area, it makes for a good cutoff point for our scenes, so we know not to focus too much on the field over there."


By then, I had caught attention of a large red building in the back of the field. I has crossed it several times while filming Alex. "Hey Al?" I asked. He nodded. "What's that red building over there?"

"Oh that, that's the uh..." he thought for a moment as I zoomed in. "I think it's the-"

Audio distortion. This distortion was more like the previous ones at the gazebo, loud and irritating to listen to. This one, was the worst as it was quite lengthy as it matched our entire conversation about the building. Conveniently, the distortion disappears just as we end the conversation.

"Yeah, it's really too bad the field's grass wasn't level with each other. We could have used some great shots in this field."

"I'm sure we could work our way around it, if we really wanted to use it."

"Yeah..."

The video cuts.


Apart from the audio distortion in these tapes, I have noticed several screen tears through-out the video. This video wasn't the first time this has happened, either. It has happened in almost every single video I have posted since starting these entries. Particularly, they occured whenever the slender man was near. Judging from the audio and the screen tears, I have come to the conclusion that the slender man was there that day. Watching us, spying on us, and neither Alex or myself knew about it at the time. This would mark our first informal encounter with the slender man.

It's getting late, and I need to see a man in town tomorrow morning to sell me a dog. I feel the need for one. I just hope this poor pup doesn't end up like Sierra.

Hella sweet update, Nohea. :D

Entry #6


Hello again. What do I tell you first? More on how eerie my life has become? Or do I tell you how more fucked up Alex's life was turning out to be? Regardless, I am not bearer of good news. I am growing tired. I am scared to sleep during the day, I am scared to sleep during the night. I am afraid that if I ever go to sleep, that thing will get me.

As I stated in the last entry, I got myself a dog. Named her Nev, short for Nevada. Call me weird or what not, I felt it was in honor for Alex's dog Sierra. Nev, has been a good dog, she's very watchful. I can trust her and I know that she trusts me. Enough bags of Beggin Bits can do that to a dog. She's very obedient and I am happy to have her as my friend, and loyal pet.

Since my last entry I have spoken to several of the cast and crew of April Showers, asking them if they felt anything strange on set. My friend Rebecca, said she remembered one day when Alex paniced during a script read through and drove away without giving any possible reason why. Chris reinforced this, said he didn't know what the hell happened. One second he was reading for his character, next he was gripping onto the seat for dear life, afraid he was going to die in a car accident. He told me he was close to quitting that day, but it wouldn't have made a difference. Alex was already on edge by the time that day happened, I assumed.

I have noticed a pattern in these videos that I have been watching. Alex progressed through a stage on the slender man. At first, he was curious. He wanted to know more about the slender man and became infaturated in filming the creature. As to why, I have no idea, the thing is scary as fuck. I sure as shit would not want to be filming that thing out of curiosity. As we all know, curiosity killed the cat, and in this case Alex was the cat. I really shouldn't have said that, is Alex really dead? What did that thing do to him? Will it do it to... I need to stop thinking about this.

As I was saying, Alex went from being curious about this creature, to being paranoid. He felt as if the creature was somehow stalking him, always knowing where Alex was. This finally came to a conclusion where Alex was terrified of the creature, terrified for his own life. Reading some of these stories I've found from the library and the internet, there is reason to be scared. But, I think Alex figured out something about the monster, that he didn't before hand which would explain why he continually filmed it. But I'll get to that later. First, I'm going to show you all a video. Note: This is a part of the stage where Alex was terrified.

The video starts. Like video #1 and #4, there is no audio in the video. The video itself appears to be a direct continuation of video #1, where Alex saw the slender man standing outside his garage.

In this particular video, instead of being on the second floor, Alex is now on the first floor of his home. He is stumbling around the dark, I can make out the front door, that's all. The camera steadies against the window of his living room, which is directly to the right of the front door. Behind Alex is the staircase that leads upstairs. Pushing up against the window, scanning once again, Alex films the outside of his home. The garage and driveway are empty. His gray Honda Civic rests parked on the far end of the driveway, near the forest. As Alex scans back to the left, a shadow appears. It's the slender man, walking alongside the house, towards the window.

In a panic, Alex ducks down. For a moment, the camera is pitch black as Alex crawls away from the window by the staircase. He films the window to the left of the front door. The slender man passes by the window, peering into the window, looking for Alex, before passing by to the door. The camera shakes uncontollably. Yeah, Alex was scared alright. Without a doubt. As the slenderman's large and skinny frame leaves the window, the video cuts.


The more I watch these videos, the more hopeless I feel my situation become. Is Alex still alive? Can he be? As I said before, I may not be hunting the slender man like Alex did, but I definitely feel like he's hunting me. Like Alex, even I have started carrying around my own personal camera. I will be uploading these videos of myself, when I capture something.

As to my theory on why Alex had a camera with him. Somehow, when he was pursuing the slender man, he must have figured out that filming the creature slows him down. The slender man does not belong in this world, and by filming him, we are creating a paradox in the earth's atmosphere, thus slowing him down. If not, the creature is too fast for us to even see or comprehend that he's even there. It's an oddball theory, but its the best I've got... I got to go, dog's barking again...

Looks like somebody found the Slender Man forums..! ^_^

This is a fantastic addition to this contemporary monster's saga.

Huh, is this a novelisation of Marble Hornets?
