— CAUTION—

— CONTAINS POTENTIAL TRIGGERS —

 

Hello, dear Patrons, and welcome to another Slender Man fic! This particular oneshot has what can only be described as a very minimal summary.

 A woman spends the night in the forest as a dare, not aware of the creature lurking in the shadows. Rating T for safety.

That could literally apply to any of a number of different animals and mythical creatures.

Hello everyone, I’m just trying to write in english, so be nice with me. ^^’

The author is a native French speaker and this is one of only two fics they have written in English; that said, the structure isn’t all that bad. There are a few quirks but they aren’t really what drew my attention. Not by a long shot.

It’s based on a personnal theory about the slenderman being able to feed on energy instead of souls (so he doesn’t have to kill his preys) or flesh.

Which is a very intriguing theory, and would explain how he can “feed” without having any visible mouth.

After all, we don’t know much about him…

The Slender Man is a child born of the Internet who has evolved his own mythos, but there are still gaps that a clever author could make use of.

Please enjoy the little text.

I assume that means ‘short story’ and isn’t a reference to the font size.

2156: No Regrets, No Sad – Chapter 1 – Oneshot?

Hello, dear Patrons!

Well, it’s October again – the month when some of us dust off our spoopiest fics for your entertainment. Or, in my case, dig out some more Slender Man fics. Because dear gods, that is a deep well of weird.

And, once again, this is a Hurt/Comfort and/or Friendship fic – because there are apparently a lot of people who find Slendpai to be a comforting and/or arousing presence, which kind of makes me think they didn’t fully understand the game or creepypastas.

Since this is a very short chapter/oneshot, let’s look at the summary.

After Hilda’s dad dies in car accident, she becomes depress and alone until her friend, Melanie helped her deal with the lost and pain but it never heals. She almost gets killed by bullies until someone saves her, the Slender man. She gets scared of him but tells her he will not hurt her. With this, they’ll create a friendship and experience feelings that they never felt before.

We seem to be hitting all the favorites found in Slendpai fics; a young person with a Tragek Past including a dead parent is being abused and/or bullied but is saved by Slendpai, becomes besties with him and then immediately starts having sexy thoughts about the faceless Lothario.  I don’t know why so many Slendpai fics have the same elements.

Now, on to the fic itself.

Life isn’t so happy for me. I used to be a cheery, happy person but now, I feel like I don’t exist like a ghost.

So … Nameless here feels like the opposite of a ghost? I don’t know if I should feel insulted or not.

I feel empty, weak like a doll. Broken.

Please let me know if we’re going to venture too far into the Swamps of Sadness, so I can go put my hip waders on.

I wished I was dead.

I’m going to need the waders, aren’t I?

Hello, dear Patrons, and welcome to the last chapter!

When last we met, the Narrator did some fan[ERROR:GENDER NOT FOUND]ing over Golden Freddy, the floor gave way to reveal a suddenly appearing lake of lava so that the Narrator could rescue Golden Freddy and then in turned be rescued by the animatronic. Then the lava inexplicably sealed up the hole in the floor. (I blame Crunchy for that one.) Presumably this means all the animatronics are now able to move around, so hopefully one side of the “they’re not afraid of us”/”we can’t move!” broken record will no get any play in this chapter.

And hey! There’s no key at the top! Not even an Author’s Note. Normally this would make me happy, but I’m wondering if that just means that none of those Reader fic shorthands like Y/N appear in the chapter.

Me and Golden came running out of the room, and notice that something was off right away.

The fact that it should be ‘Golden and I’?

Relf, Valery, Ben and Ann were gone, nowhere in sight.

I guess they meant so little to the fic that they just evaporated.

And just then, as if a spell had been broken, the animatronics sprung to life.

Because that’s definitely something abandoned machinery that’s been sitting around for decades can do.

Bonnie, Chica and Freddy jumped off the stage and frantically started to search the room.

Weren’t they able to ‘see’ the room in some fashion? Did they not notice what happened to the Character Blob?

Foxy then comes running out of Pirate’s Cove and joins in the search.

How did he know that was something he needed to do? He was off by himself in an enclosed section.

After a bit of watching them, I found my voice under all my worry and surprised, and called out to them, “What happened? Where Ann, Relf, Ben and Valery?”

Quick, check the floor for recent volcanic activity!

Hello, dear Patrons, and welcome back to another chapter! In the last one there was a lot of face and/or head ripping off, but roughly seventy-five percent of the chapter was the animatronics talking amongst themselves about how the kids were totes not scared of them! Amazeballs!

Let’s start off this chapter with :sigh: yet another key.

 

Y/N: Your name

E/C: Eye color

H/C: Hair color

H/L: Hair length

H/T: Hair type {curly, wavy, straight, ect}

F/C: Favorite color

Y/T: Your Town/Hometown

POV: Point of View

A/N: Author Note

This one does not have an attached Author’s Note, but that inclusion of a place makes me worried. Is the audience going to have to provide the setting on top of everything else? And how is the author going to manage to write in a way that would accommodate their audience’s various and diverse hometowns? The only way to do that would be by being as vague as possible.

I’ve answered my own question, haven’t I?

Hello, dear Patrons, and welcome to the second chapter of this Reader fic! In the first chapter, the Narrator disclosed to their friends – whom I shall call Generic Guy, Annoying Girl, Homestuck, and Highlighter – that the Narrator had discovered the real location of Freddy Fazbear’s Pizzeria – and it’s within walking distance! What a complete shock!

The chapter starts off with the same key … wait a second. What’s that?

Y/N: Your name

E/C: Eye color

H/C: Hair color

H/L: Hair length

H/T: Hair type {curly, wavy, straight, ect}

F/C: Favorite color

POV: Point of View 

:eye-twitch:

There’s going to be POV Tags. Awesome. My favorite.

A/N: Author Note

This is for both boys and girls. Girls are on the left and boys on the right, but you can choice what option you want though.

I can’t tell if that A/N tag is meant to be attached to this disclaimer, or if it is just a warning of things yet to come.

Hello, dear Patrons!

I was thinking to myself, “You know what I haven’t done recently?”

:Syl’s voice drifts down from the rafters:

“Anyone?”

I’m ignoring you. Anyway, I was thinking to myself “You know what I haven’t done in a while? A Reader fic!”

“Bollocks to this.” :drops down from the rafters and heads for the door: “I’ll be at the pub.”

Calling the janitor’s closet a pub doesn’t make it one, but whatever.

So, back to the fic. Unlike many Reader fics, which struggle with the format for a single chapter, this one actually stretches over several chapters. There’s still a lot of struggling, but now it has been greatly expanded, so there’s that to look forward to.

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

Y/N and her/his friends are big fans of the renown horror game, Five Nights at Freddy’s. They bet every game including the extra nights that were thrown at them, they pretty much everything about the game. But one night, Y/N and her/his friends find out about something that they don’t know what to think of. Freddy Fazbear’s Pizzeria was right down the road. (My 1st reader insert)

Right away I can tell the grammar is going to be an issue. And the fic is apparently going to be in the frequently annoying first-person rather than the eye-bleeding second-person, so that’s a mixed blessing.

Now, to the fic!

Brace yourself, Whirlybat, I think you’re in for a rough ride.

—WARNING—

—THIS FIC IS NSFW/NSFC—

— OBVIOUSLY—

—I MEAN, JUST LOOK AT THE TITLE—

 

Hello, dear Patrons!

This little oneshot is (superficially) from the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild universe, but it’s … Not exactly canon-friendly.

“So says you. Who knows what Little Miss Princess gets up to in her spare time?”

:Ghostie sighs:

You all know Syl, of course.

:Syl winks at the Patrons:

Charming. Let’s begin with the summary, shall we?

“As long as we get to the good stuff soon, dumpling.”

Don’t worry. This fic is exactly what it says on the tin. The author has a whole collection of these fics.

With Calamity Ganon sealed, Zelda and Link allow their love to grow. After returning from an expedition, Zelda can’t wait to show Link her newest Sheikah invention: intimacy technology.

I know the Sheikah were clever and had loads of gadgets, but “intimacy technology”? What does that even mean?

“Bet you a nickel Link fucks a Guardian.”

That’s not a bet I’d want to win. Or even contemplate.

(This story is considered Zelda erotica, and it contains adult themes and content. Critiques RE the style and storytelling are encouraged, so please leave your detailed suggestions/solutions in the reviews.)

:static-filled burst of hoots and whistles:

What was that?

“I’m Skyping with the other Sisters of Sin. They didn’t want to miss Gumdrop’s Thai cooking class.”

Dammit! That was today?

“Don’t worry, Glasses says she can save you some basil chicken.”

Easy on the archeopteryx, please.
