Slender's one of those horror-story people that Lovecraft or Stephen King should have included in their stories. I remember reading a couple years
back on the creepypasta website all about his (or its) adventures, and some of them were a bit much (Then again, I got suckered in by The Blair
for a couple months after the film was out).
It started out as a meme, and then the CreepyPasta scene tried to make him as realistic as possible.
This wouldn't be the first time I've heard of teens believing in him though - In one of my local parks out here, there were a group of 12-14 year
olds, all hunting for Slenderman. For me, I wasn't sad that they were out hunting him, but the manner of how they were hunting for him. My guess is
that due to a poor economy here in Michigan, Slender has resorted to haunting places in the U.P., all while working the night shift. Due to the
decrease in pay, he can no longer haunt the same small city park and children that live there. Also, because his contract states he can only stalk
solitary, lost kids, there is no hope that you will find him by calling out his name, in a group, in broad daylight.
As for the people stabbing - clearly, there's something amiss in the kid's brains (I'd even hazard a guess they have as much brains as K.K.). Where
I'm puking is that at least it seems to me, when I was a kid my fantasies were much...more realistic
. What's obvious to me though, is that they
clearly had no remorse for the stabbing, so I'd rather see them charged as an adult, put away into a padded room, and hope that the victim has a
long, healthy, and safe life away from these...well, I'll not disobey the T&C's to call the attackers what I think of them.
