"We didn't want to go, we didn't want to kill them, but its persistent silence and outstretched arms horrified and comforted us at the same time…"
When you were small, you had an imaginary friend. He was with you wherever you went and you saw him everywhere. At the playground where you played, in the schoolyard at your school, and even in your bedroom when you slept. He was your funny friend at first, with his tall body and long arms. You could always count on him to be there for you. At first he was distant, always there just out of reach, in the corner of your eye. But then he got closer and more persistent, always there beckoning to you. His faceless face was always watching, his long arms always reaching out to smother you, to take you away to another place. His presence silently screamed impending doom. You tried to tell your parents but every time you opened your mouth to speak he was there to silence you and your tongue stuck to the roof of your mouth as your eyes widened with fear. Then came the panic attacks, the anxiety, the terrifying visions and nightmares. You were scared to turn off the lights at night and you asked your parents to look for the monster under the bed and in the closet. They always looked and never saw him. But he was always there.
Maybe your parents tried to get you professional help or maybe they just chalked it all up to an overactive imagination. You were labeled a 'troubled' child at home and at school. Maybe you were always quiet and withdrawn, or maybe you became a troublemaker. You became an exasperation to your parents, no matter how patient they were. Your teachers couldn't handle you and you and maybe you were put into special ED. You lost friends because the other kids parents didn't want you around their child. You lost friends because you were not the only one haunted. Some of the other kids you knew were dissapearing, and you saw Him take them. Maybe it was only a matter of time before He took you too, but fear made you hold on and fight him. Yet in all this you did get some relief in the form of other kids from you Kids Help and Support group that you had been placed in. They all saw him too and it was the only safe place for you. Some of the others from the group didn't make it: He took them away.
As you got older, other things started filling your mind. High school, crushes, other life challenges. You were so use to seeing Him that He didn't surprise you any more you were so use to seeing Him that He started to fade into the background. Was that Him in the crowd? No, it was just a shadow. Was that him in the woods? No, it was just a tree. Time went on and you stopped seeing him. You stopped thinking about him. You eventaully graduated from your kids support group. You graduated High School and started college. You always felt this unexplained dark presence in the back of your mind, but by now you were good at ignoring and denying it.
But you could never really escape Him...
Alright, I hoped you liked the intro! Obviously this is a Horror RP, themed Slender Man. The plot is this:
It's been years since you were deemed 'mentally stable' and graduated from your kids psych group where you and the other kids who were haunted by slender man were placed. You all tried to stay in touch, but eventually fell out of contact now that the one thing that had drawn you all together has dissapeared from your conscious mind. But Slender Man never really left you. He was there guiding your life twistedly. Your are in college now, Ivy League, Harvard University located in Massachusetts, USA. You go to a party in one of the dorms where a classmate hosting. You are having a great time drinking, dancing, hooking up and trying not to think about finals when, one by one, you start to see them. The other survivors of your once kid support group. The other survivors of Slender Man. It's a plesent sunrise to run into a few old friends, but then it starts getting creepy as all of you meet up at the party, seemingly by chance. It's all rather awkward and confusing, thinking about that time in your life when you were a troubled child. The truth is, you've forgotten about exactly why you were a troubled child. You've forgotten about Slender Man. But as all of you converge, you start talking and thinking, trying to remember.
Then creepy things start to happen. You get chills and you start seeing things. Long, tall, thin shadows following you everywhere...then other people at the party start to dissapear until all that is left is those of you from the kids psych group. You try to escape but find yourselves lost in the deep woods of Massachusetts, the Harvard Forest to be exact. All of you slowly remember your pasts and start to realize what is truly going on. Then, one by one, you all start to fade into the dark...
Slender Man will have his revenge.
He Is Coming For You
Cheesy, I know, but I'm a sucker for horror. You will play one of the college students that all use to be haunted by Slender Man as a kid, and who were in a kids psych group for troubled children. There are
The point of this RP is to have fun being creepy.
There will be character deaths. If Slender Man gets you or if you die accidentally or at the hands of one of your peers, you will be wisked away to a parallel universe where Slender Man takes his victims. So even those who die will still be able to stay in the story, just in the parallel universe. Here you will face a whole new set of horrors as you attempt to find your way back to the real world.
