Hello, dear Patrons!

Are you ready for more Slender Man fanfiction? (Don’t worry; it’s not Slendtai or a Reader fic this time.) This particular fic, unlike just about every other Slender Man fic I’ve worked on, actually looks as if it has elements from the game in it. Woot!

Let’s take a look at the summary, shall we?

Eight different pages have one thing in common. Slender. A teenage woman is heading home from a party only to have her car run out of gas. She finds a farm and enters hoping to find a source of fuel. Suddenly the doors lock, and in order to come out she has to find the 8 pages. And in order to find the eight pages, she must avoid the mythological creature known as Slenderman.

I’m curious to see how this is going to work out; finding the pages in order to leave the area works as a gameplay mechanic, but I don’t know how it would be translated over into a narrative. Those type of “You must collect X number of [item] to progress” quests are just one of those things that make sense when you’re playing a game, but if someone in a real-world scenario told you that you had to find pieces of paper in a forest and would be physically incapable of leaving the area until they were all found you would call so much bullshit on them. Also; farms don’t typically have doors unless they are on or in a structure of some kind so this might take place inside a house or barn of some sort.



New story based on a famous meme, mythological creature, and game on the internet SLENDER!

Slendpai is a creature of many talents.

I have played this game once, and will never do it again,

Well, that’s encouraging.
