    He creeped the silly goose out of me, until I came up with a theory. It is said that Slender Man will more likely come after you if you fear him, and leave you alone if you don't. He lives only to scare you. Sounds familiar to something, doesn't it? I call it fear. Slender Man IS fear. Fear will always chase you. Fear only comes after you if you fear it. It all seemed to fit in place for me, but it doesn't explain the sightings.

    Edit: I can't have proof. I'm not saying he's real, I'm saying he could exist. I'll be back in like 10 mins. I'm going to search google for those pictures drawn by little kids and some quotes. BRB.

    Everything on SA is fabricated purely for the simpleton entertainment value -- you just gotta willingly suspend your disbelief like you're watching Soap Operas

    Brazilian Cave Paintings
    The earliest argued reference to the legend is within the cave paintings found in the Serr da Capivara National Park in the Northeast of Brazil, which are believed to date from as far back as 9000 BC. These paintings show a strangely elongated character leading a child by the hand, but make no reference to the extra appendages.

    Egyptian Hieroglyphs
    The next known possible reference to the Slender Man comes from around 3100 BC in lower Egypt, with references to the "Thief of the Gods" or the "Thief of Kuk" becoming common place during the reign of Pharaoh Wazner. Hieroglyphic carvings representing the Thief were found in the pharaoh's tomb, who was rumored to have had some kind of encounter with the entity. The carvings resemble a strange figure with multiple upper limbs, one that has never been found in any other hieroglyph language.

    German Woodcuts
    Renowned German woodcutter Hans Freckenberg created at least two woodcuts featuring a character

    he described as Der Ritter (The Knight) during the mid-sixteenth century that were discovered in Halstberg Castle in 1883. Whilst Freckenberg was well-known for his realistic depiction of human anatomy - something that was unusual among woodcuts of the time - these pictures featured a skeletal, multi-limbed character. Historians are unsure of the exact symbolic nature of the character, with some claiming that it is a personification of the religious wars that raged in Europe at the time, while others say it represents the mysterious plagues that have been believed to be the reason for the mysterious abandoning of the Hastlberg Castle and the nearby village in 1543.

    However, many insist that Freckenberg was attempting to represent "Der Großmann" (the Tall Man). According to lgend, he was a fairy ho lived in the Black Forest. Bad children who crept into the woods at night would be relentlessly chased by Der Großmann, who wouldn't leave them be until he either caught them or they were forced to tell their parents of their wrongdoing. Even then, there is a chillding account from an old journal, dating from about 1702:

    "My child, my Lars… he is gone. Taken, from his bed. The only thing that we found was a scrap of black clothing. It feels like cotton, but it is softer… thicker. Lars came into my bedroom ysterday, screaming at the top of his lungs that "The angel is outside!" I asked him what he was talking about, and he told me some nonsense fairy story about Der Großmann. He said he went into the groves by our village and found one of my cows dead, hanging from a tree. I thought nothing of it at first… but now, he is gone. We must find Lars, and my family must leave before we are killed. I am sorry, my son… I should have listened. May God forgive me."

    ++Romanian Mythology
    There is also Romanian fairytale which tells the legend of the Tall Man, featuring this description which may have taken to refer to the Slender Man.

    The tall man stoon in a clearing, dressed as a nobleman, all in black. Shadows lay over him, dark as a cloudy midnight. He had many arms, all long and boneless as snakes, all sharp as swords, and they writhed like worms on nails. He did not speak, but made his intentions know,

    in the fairytale, the Tall Man causes a mother to kill her husband and child, before he slid from a fireplace and "clenched her in his burning embrace."

    Ted was charged with the murder of his wife. However, due to his catatonic state, he was admitted to Jenkins Mental Hospital in Sandy Plains, Polk County. Ted remained in a catatonic state for over three years. On the third anniversary of the murder, Dr Dauton on June 15th, 1956 refer to a "Skinny fella… suit… looking at me…" who had taken both Judi Henderson and her daughter Tracy. Ted claimed that Judi begged him to shoot her, and felt that he had "saved her" by doing so. However, after lamenting that he had been unable to stop the "skinny man" from absconding with his daughter, Ted commenced to "slam his face repeatedly" into the steel table at which he was seated, having to be restrained and sedated by hospital orderlies. Less than seven hours later, at approximately 3:00 am the 16th of July, Ted was found dead in his room after apparently escaping his restraints and chewing through his own wrist, severing the ulnar artery and bleeding to death. The body of Tracy Henderson was never found, however a photograph taken about a week before the Henderson Farm incident shows what appears to be a suited man standing in front of the stables, which some claim to be the Slender Man.
    Okay, I'll find some more stuff...brb again.

    If he could exist he also could be real DUUUUUH. Not because you want to believe in something made up is going to make it real. Also that existe only to provoke fear is stupid, I think thisi s the reason why so many monster and super natural creatures (made up) die and no care of them, because a creature or a being who works to make something as not-productive as fear is really not credible.


    Also watch some quotes because are not real. Ex.
    "Romanian Mythology

    That is not real. Tall mans are Giants for Romans, who come from Jupiter, that argument is obviously alterated to enter in Slender Man made up myth.

    Mythology may be based off of real happenings. Still, the other cases seemed legit enough to exist. What I meant to say is that I'm seeking the truth - I want to know whether he exists or not so I'll find more evidence to see if it is legit.

    He doesn't exist but it's really fun to think he does and be afraid of him.

    He doesn't existe, so your travel to truth is doomed to find that he doesn't existe.

    And as Cake said, Big Foot is more believable.

    Found some pictures. Some may be photoshopped, but then again all photos may be photoshopped:





    Oh, and we got off-topic. It's supposed to be about Indrid Cold vs Slender Man in terms of fear.
