Sorry for the Wait.

A lot has happened in the past few days, mainly the fact that I got very very sick. I went back to school a few days ago, and caught the cold that's going around. Natalie was fine, and denies running away. There is no police record of a visit to my house, and my mom says I just ran away. When I got home there were a few operator symbols carved into my desk which I scratched out. Thankfully my mom didn't ask what they were. I still don't feel too good, and have a pretty bad cough. Natalie almost broke up with me for "running a way in such a fucking stupid way" and because she "didn't go anywhere." Whatever.

She's stopped talking about slenderman, and that either means he's given up or she's just not telling me as much "for my own good." I have only seen him once in the past few days. He was standing in the forest behind my old middle school...nobody else saw him...I'm pretty sure I'm going crazy.

...What the Fuck

Natalie called me from her old cell phone, and asked me where I had been. She said she'd been at home the whole time, and that I was ignoring her calls. Apparently the cops were looking for me, and same with several search parties. I've decided to go home tomorrow, because if she's telling the truth my search will be over. Well whatever...I just hope this whole thing is over, and I can go back to my normal life, or whatever will be left of it when I return...Slenderman doesn't seem like the type to give up...but I really hope he/it has. Again sorry for the short post. I really need some time to think about stuff.

Almost No Clues.

An inn was the last stop on the bus before it went into some heavy woods that I know Natalie would stay away from. I asked the old lady behind the reception desk if there was someone named Natalie Hildred staying there. She said that she got a room, stayed there for an hour or two, and left. I asked if they had cleaned out the room, and they said they hadn't. I got the room number, and went to check it out. The door was open. The whole room was a mess, papers everywhere, the bed was tipped over. "AN ANGEL VISITED THIS GREY EARTH" was scrawled on the wall with an operator symbol below it. I smudged it off with my sleeve, and cleaned up the room a little. I really didn't want anyone who might go in this room looking into this too much.

I left the hotel, and continued going north on a different bus, I'm in Baltimore now.

She Left.

Natalie said she was getting too paranoid today, and for no reason that she told me about, she left town. The cops showed up at my door, and asked my a lot of questions for a long time. Basically they asked if I knew where she was going. The only clue either of us have is the last thing she said to me "I need to go....somwehere light, somewhere where someone can actually help me with this...I think you were right, and if you were then I need to go even faster now...I love you. Goodbye." After she texted this to me, she took her mom's car(a blue 1979 camero), and ditched her phone by throwing it off a bridge. The bridge was north of her house, so I assume she went up there.

I'm going to start looking for her, I'll need to cover my tracks, and make sure nobody follows me(especially anyone I care about). Anyone dumb enough  follow me is basically committing suicide by slenderman, and I don't want to start worrying about other people besides Natalie, and I. I'm taking my laptop, a camera, toiletries, and all th cash I can carry. I want to avoid a paper trail, so I'll use cash instead of my credit card (which I all ready emptied). I'm going to start my search in Baltimore, then onto New York. She mentioned both of those places in our last chat. The bus leaves in 30 minutes, so this is goodbye until I can get wifi again.

A History Lesson, and a Reality Lesson.

I've been getting a lot of comments from people saying they have seen slenderman predating the SA thread. First of all, slenderman didn't exist until the SA thread. We all saw that shadow that looked really tall, or had nightmares that someone was following us. Victor Surge created him because he is the baseline of fear. His facelessness and odd proportions make us as people feel uneasy, and scared. This combined with the paranoia of him being a relentless, seemingly immortal stalker, and killer made him downright terrifying. However these fears were just subconscious paranoias until June 10 2009 when SA user Victor Surge posted him in a photoshop thread. A few years, and several thousand people following things concerning  him later he finally was brought into existence.

Now onto the real slenderman. Most of the 'mythos' is correct, in the sense that he's tall, faceless, and follows you. I'm guessing he'll kill me when he's done following me. All the 'der ritter' and 'der grosman' stuff is fake, and I don't see how he could be connected to cameras(however I've never recorded anything since he's been following me just to be sure). I don't think he wears a suit, or anything at all for that matter, and his skin just mimics the pattern of one. I can hardly imagine slenderman adjusting his cufflink. I have no idea how he sees, or speaks, or even if he does see or speak. To put it totally bluntly, I know almost nothing. All I know is that I need to get the fuck out of here before I die. I need to cover my tracks to prevent people from following me I'm debating whether or not to bring Natalie, I feel that if I leave, slenderman will leave her alone. Because I follow a lot of interactive fiction stories with him in it...I'm a good person for him to be following. My only question is...Why did he follow Natalie first?

I Was Wrong

The guy in the navy blue suit wasn't some FBI guy, or slenderman or anything. He was a coroner(hence the blood). Apparently some guy fell down the hill, and hit his head on a tree and died. It happened really early in the morning so nobody could help the poor guy, and cell phone service sucks in the woods so he couldn't call 911. Some hiker found him, and reported it later. I just saw a news report on it, and they showed some footage from this camera these hikers mount on their hats.. The camera(and footage) got pretty messed up, but it looked like he was running from something, or just going for a nice jog at 3 in the morning.

Anyway, Natalie might transfer to my school soon. She goes to a school about thirty minutes away now, which is a big pain for both of us, and because of some district lines she has to stay there. Those lines are changing  in a week, so she'll be able to come to my school. I'm pretty relieved that she won't be as far away now.

My final thought before I go to bed is a grim one. The slenderman is still following us. I haven't seen him as much recently, but I just have this....terrible feeling that something terrible is about to happen. I won't be able to stop him, but what I can do is run. Run, and cover my tracks. Get rid of any evidence that he's following me so that when he gets to me, nobody else will cross his path.

A More Detailed Post.

So, yesterday I went to Natalie's house expecting the worst. She answered the door, and said she wasn't expecting me over today. I was really relieved to see she was alive. We hung out for most of the day, but when I mentioned the phone call she didn't remember it at all and gave me a really weird look. I didn't want to fuck things up anymore, so I dropped the subject. I left the house at around five, and met up with some guys that were going to explore that burned area.  We had flashlights, and one of us brought his hunting knife in case 'any sketchy shit went down.'  We were walking down the trail, when we saw this guy in front of a roped off area. He was just standing there, He was taller than us, about 6 feet, and had a hat on. I saw he had black hair, and a navy blue suit on with some sort of badge. He was wearing the kind of glasses a blind person has, and we thought he was until he noticed us, and told us we 'ought to back off.' I saw he had blood on his hands, and he was reaching for something in his pocket, so I ran and kept running.

I asked them about it today, and they didn't see the blood, and they thought I was being too paranoid.

She's Okay

I went to her house today. She's okay, but my computer sadly is not(some graphics driver problem). I'm posting this from my phone right now, so I'm really sorry for the short update. More to come tomorrow when I get my computer back.

Saturday, January 8, 2011


Natalie called me in the middle of the day today, She sounded really worried, and kept saying 'you were right'. When I asked what was wrong the phone started acting weird, and I couldn't hear what she was saying, eventually I heard a really high pitched noise, and the call dropped... I can't help but think she was telling me I was right about slenderman, and something terrible happened to her... I was with her this morning, and she didn't mention being stalked, but she seemed really paranoid, and was coughing a lot. After the phone call failed, I tried texting her, and her message came back corrupted, when I responded to it I got an automated replay saying the number wasn't accepting texts anymore. I tried calling again, but the phone was broken, or off. I'm honestly worried that she might not be alive tomorrow.

After she called, my friend that lives up hill came over, and we went out to explore some of the trails around my neighborhood. I heard some noises in the woods he swears was an animal, but I was too scared, so I told him I felt a tick had bitten me and went back home. The trail we explored was some burned out area that looked like it should be in silent hill, and not the suburbs. We're going back there tomorrow.

When I asked my mom why we moved, she got kind of angry at me, and told me that the old house was 'just some old piece of crap that we should have never moved into.' Anyway, I'm going to go to sleep, and try and talk to Natalie again tomorrow. If she doesn't pick up, I'm going to go to her house and see if she's okay.

Tiring Day.

I woke up around 3 am from a dream I was having. The dream was a lot like the drowning dream, only I got rescued. The rescuers took me to a quarrentine room for several days. When they finally released my they told me that the ship was a victim of a bioterrorist attack or something, and that I was the only one that survived. There were some 'men in black' types there. Dreams are really confusing...

I woke up really early to rain tapping on my window, and played Team Fortress 2 until my mom woke up and told me to get off the computer. I ate my breakfast, and decided to walk to school with one of my friends who lives up the street. I live on a hill, so I walked up to his house, and we started walking. He  was really worried about being late, which was the last thing on my mind. He suggested we take this shortcut through the woods down the street from school. He's lived here a lot longer than me, so I went with him. We were walking through the woods when it got really foggy. I started getting really paranoid, because every tree looked like slenderman. I was sure he was in the woods, so I started running until I realized that I should stay with my friend, and not go running off into woods I didn't know very well. I started walking in the direction I came from until I found  my friend, and we went through thse woods to school.

School went allright, I could barely stay awake in my classes, and since I moved here at the end of last semester, I guess the teachers think I'm kind of a slacker. I'll change that when I can actually stay awake. Thankfully, I didn't get that much homework, and was able to do it all in about two hours. Come to think of it, I don't really remember why I moved in the first place....I'll ask my mom about that tomorrow.

Some Good News for a Change.

Thanks to Lucien, who commented on my last post, Natalie is staying with me. I finally got some sleep last night, because I realized how pointless it was to stay up. There's not much I can to to stop slenderman from killing one(or both) of us. I called Natalie, and told her I was sorry for acting so paranoid. I told her that even if it wasn't slenderman, someone was following her, and that it can't be a good idea to just ignore it. She agreed with me when I said she needed to be really careful around this guy, and that he could have ulterior motives(i.e. organs in a bag). Sorry for this update being so short, nothing worth talking about has happened...

School starts tomorrow, so I might as well get a good eight hours of sleep.

So, I Told Natalie....

First of all, I haven't slept since I found out the slenderman was following Natalie, and I, so I'm exhausted. When I told her, she thought I was completely crazy, and had been watching too many of  "those silly youtube things". When I tried to explain how the slenderman came into existence she didn't believe me, and to be honest, I don't blame her one bit. I really don't want her to think I'm crazy or anything, but how the hell am I supposed to explain that something that something I don't even know that much about is following us. I'm going to call her tomorrow, and try and explain this better. I fear that she'll break up with me if I say this wrong, and I really don't want her having to face slenderman alone. I really need your help on this one guys.

I Can't Believe I'm Saying This....

I really...really can't believe I'm saying this, but slenderman exists. I know you guys are going to say I'm crazy, and I probably am, but I can't deny facts. He was stalking Natalie, and now he's stalking me. I really don't want to tell Natalie this, or even admit this myself, but one of us is going to end up dead. I can't let the slenderman get to anyone else close to me. After one of us dies, her(or my) family will investigate the death. I need to make sure there is no evidence of slenderman's existence around so that whoever decides to investigate doesn't get killed themselves. I'm going to document my last few months on this blog. If I should die, or disappear  before Natalie, she will take over the blog for me. I'm hoping for the best, but preparing for the worst.

So, here's what I think happened. Slenderman was created via the power of suggestion, meaning that the people following args, and blogs that featured him, actua caused him to manifest in reality. Basically, all that time I spent watching Marble Hornets, or everymanHYBRID, or reading JAFool brought me to where I am now. I have no idea what I'm going to do. I never thought I'd be in this place...

Can't Even Think of a Title.

I think whoever is/was following Natalie is following me now. The guy's really tall, looked to be around 6 and a half feet. He was wearing all black and had sunglasses on(I think at least...I don't really have time to analyze someone's fashion sense when they're following me.) I first saw him when I was at Natalie's house today, he was walking down the street, and Natalie told me that was the guy that had been following her. He stopped at her window until I had to leave. The guy then started following me down the street, I turned a few corners, and was pretty sure that I'd lost him, but I saw him behind me again. At that point, I got the hell out of there. I ran home, and locked all the doors.

Later on, Natalie called me and asked me why i'd been so paranoid. She said that guy had just walked past us, and was never at the window. Maybe I was hallucinating or something, but I'm positive I saw him at the window, and I'm positive he was following me. I'm either going crazy, or everyone else is.

Worst Night of my Life.

I had that ship dream again. Drowning every night sucks... When I woke up from it, i could hear this tapping on my window. I was pretty sure it was a tree, but after all that creepy stuff that's been happening to natalie I was too scared to look. The noise stopped around 1 in the morning, so I went back to sleep only to be woken up again by more tapping. I had enough of being scared, so I opened my curtains, and found out that it was a tree making the noise. There was also....well..a hand print on the window, I don't know how it got there, because my room is on the second story of the house. It looked like someone had dragged their fingers on the glass too, because the print's fingers were at least 6 inches longer than mine.

entry 29 Theory.

Personally, I think that entry number 29 of Marble Hornets showcases the operator's time altering abilities.  Jay doesn't have the time, or date of the vido, only the name. I assume he has the chest camera on, and recording him 24/7, but only his handheld camera when he is making an entry

Now on to my theory. I think that Jay found the video on his laptop, which prompted him to look for the location(which I assume he is doing now). After he finds the location, he pulls out his handheld camera to make an entry, and also leaves his chest camera on. He records himself doing whatever he does there, and turns around to see the operator, who is standing at the end of the tunnel.  It is at this point where the operator sends him back through time, and he wakes up in the hotel a week before any of this happening. Somehow, the footage from the chest camera remained partially in tact(time travel was the cause of the distortion, and missing parts) How the footage got on his computer with the name 'noentry' could be a side effect of the time trave his computer with the name 'noentry' could be a side effect of the time travel, masky interference, or a plothole. We may never find out.

Well, that was my shot at a theory, hope you all like it.

I'm going to stop writing now because Natalie is calling me...

Interesting night to say the least.

I kept having this dream where I was on this cruise ship alone, nobody else was on it at all. It was headed towards these really high cliffs, and the door to wheelhouse was locked, and I couldn't stop it from crashing. The ship flooded, and eventually sank.

I woke up at around 3 am, and logged onto my computer to play some minecraft, and check up on the args im following. The server I play minecraft on crashed because someone decided to make a giant cave filed with TNT, and  java didn't like that very much. So I'm left with a  crashed minecraft server, and no updates to anything im following. I  played fallout 3 for around an hour until my phone got a text message from Natalie saying she was scared or something. She told me she was just scared of some nightmares. We talked about dreams for a while, and I guess she fell asleep or something because I haven't heard from her since. Anyway, I think I'm goi

[I think this post was written at around 5 am, I guess I fell asleep at my computer or something . I just woke up, and clicked 'publsih']

Great way to ruin a perfectly good night...

To find out someone's following your new girlfriend. She just called me, and seemed really worried, when I asked her what was wrong she told me 'some creepy old guy is following me' When I asked about what he looked like, she gave me a pretty generic description, 'he had white hair, and a black shirt' I asked about his face, and she said she couldn't really remember, and that he may have been wearing sun glasses. I just hope she's being paranoid, and nobody's actually following her...

Hello/About me.

My name is Jacob Garnet. I am 17 years old, my favorite movies are Watchmen, Donnie Darko, and Gran Torino. My favorite book by far is Catcher in the Rye.. I follow the interactive fiction stories  Marble Hornets, EverymanHYBRID, and Just Another Fool. I also followed Junko Junsui, and Flynn Lives, but for whatever reason I clicked that link to Marble Hornets, and couldn't look away(same with EMH, and JAF). In fact, interactive fiction is my favorite genre of storytelling. I just started dating Natalie Hildred. Blogger isn't facebook, it's blogger, so why am I telling you people all this?

Why did I make this blog: Many people told me I was an interesting writer, and that I should start writing more often. So I made this: A place where I can write all I want!
