oooooh dear. what am I about to unleash upon myself.
basically this stamp is how I feel about the fans of slenderman that have become uber nazi about this monster. such fans as follows:
" I knew slenderman before slender! u^u " <-- ....sooooo? what. do you want a fucking medal? I knew him long before the game came out too but you don't see me prancing around and boasting it. besides there's nothing wrong with someone who knew it by the game. there will always be people who are late for the party.
" DON'T CALL HIM SLENDER! ITS SLENDERMAN DAMN IT. " <--- ....really? .... your going to get anal about how someone calls him? are you also against "Slendy" ? if that's the case then I'll remember to call him " Slen-Slen ". but seriously guys, you are aware some people call him that not because their referring the game. sometimes some people might just be lazy and don't feel like writing his name out, so they give him nicknames.
" UGH I HATE ANY [ insert fandom crossover or slash pairing ] WITH SLENDERMAN. " <-- Sorry to tell you this but this happens with EVERYTHING. its normal to see this happen with something that gets popular and there's nothing you can really do about it. so just grit your teeth and deal. Eventually the most annoying ones will get bored of it and leave him alone.
I like crossovers. ( except the MLP one but thats because I don't like MLP ) also I don't mind if hes paired with at least another monster character ( game/creepypasta/ cryptid/ etc etc ). however,I myself don't really like when hes paired with humans. of all things why the fuck would he screw his food? if he really even eats people that is. are you like... implying he has a food fetish? if so then well damn. I can't really argue since who knows! he might! I'm not a slenderilogist. I don't have a clue how this monster really is. nobody does! thats the point to slenderman, hes supposed to be a enigmatic monster! which brings me to the next fan problem.
" yeah well you obviously are not a true fan of slenderman because you never read the mythos. " <-- Shut. the fuck. up. Do you have any idea on how much of a god damn uppity nerdy elitist you sound when saying that.
note: there's nothing wrong with if they admit they don't know the mythos. there is also nothing wrong with teaching them or just sending them the link to the mythos if they actually want to know!
HOWEVER! I've seen some people where when someone states " oh I don't know the mythos o3o " and the other person flat out berates the person and thinks little of them for not knowing it. that is like..... the behavior of a fucking 9 year old when you do that to someone.
here is how to be a fan of slenderman: LIKE HIM ENOUGH TO SAY YOU ARE A FAN
thats all it takes.
so really guys. you bitch about all these other fans and why you don't like them, but please remember that your not perfect either, you have some people in your fan groups that are or at least can be assholes. that's all I'm saying, this is not pointed to anyone in particular. and I know I probably skipped alot of problematic "pure" type fans but I just named off the ones that seem to be the most notable. Thank you for reading and cheers slenderman fans.
we're all equal, there's no reason to do all the hate.
