Sympathy for Slenderman by garnetbarren Sympathy for Slenderman by garnetbarren
SO I made a little mini-comic (in a very different style than I normally would, as you may have noticed) in response to all the hullabaloo surrounding Slenderman lately. If you didn't know, two twelve-year-old girls stabbed their friend in Wisconsin (my home state), claiming that they did it for Slenderman. Article here:…
This was all over national news, and now creepypasta and slender man are getting A TON of hate for it. Basically applying the "video games make people violent" argument to Slenderman. Which is a load of crap.
Sure, creepypastas are violent and about death and horror. But most people who read them are fully aware that they are fiction and that characters like Slenderman are not real. When you read these stories, you decide how you feel and react to them. Any crazy obsession with creepypasta is solely on the reader. These girls read the stories and decided to take it to an extreme, obsessive, and violent level. These girls made a conscious decision to attempt to kill someone. You can't blame a fictional character for that. If you can't separate fantasy from reality, creepypasta (and probably the internet in general) is not for you, friends. Keep your grip on reality, for the sake of the fandom. Don't be that one crazy fan that the public likes to generalize as the whole community. You're making us look REALLY bad.

*rant done*

Also I threw a few references to other creepypastas in there for the LOLz ;P
