House Guests

Keiken and MercifulSister arrived yesterday. They make okay company, though Keiken is insistent on paying me back. My family believes they're friends from school that got kicked out by their respective parents and had nowhere to go. So far everything seems quiet, but with the Solstice occurring tonight, we're not taking any chances. Everyone stay safe out there, and we'll see you on the other side.

Keiken is Gone

As you probably could have guessed from the last post's comments, Keiken had decided to come here in hopes of having a safe place to crash. After talking via email and making preparations, Keiken and his friend, MercifulSister, sent an email to me on Wednesday at about 4:39 pm, saying they would arrive at about 8. They never made it here. I've received no new emails, and I've searched the area over and over, but still haven't found anything. I can only assume they were grabbed by Proxies on the way here. I'm going to go on another search tomorrow, see if I can find anything near the highway. Also, in case nobody saw, Lisa was turned into... something wrong. I wish I could have done something to stop it. No one deserves to suffer that fate. If there is some way to reverse what happened to her, I swear I'll find it.

My lucid dreaming experiment worked, so I can finally sleep easy. Now, on to the reason I chose to title this post "Consequences". After my first success with lucid dreaming, I started becoming excesively parnoid, and then the coughing fits started.Now the dehydration is starting to set in. For those who don't know, these are symptoms of The Sickness. I should have known that It would find another way to torment me once I took my dreams back. I'm having trouble just walking around my house. I'll do what I can to recover, and I'll try to pay attention to the blogs incase someone needs help. Until next time.

A few things have changed since I tried lucid dreaming. My first few attempts were met with failure, but I managed to get it to work last night. If it works again tonight, I might be able to sleep peacefully again. I haven't seen It since the second. Also, with the Solstice approaching, things are undoubtedly going to get worse, so to any Runners looking to go to ground, my door's open.

It's five a.m. The sun won't come up for another few hours or so. I havn't slept for about twenty four hours. If I sleep, It will torture me again. When the sun comes up, I'm going into the forest near my house and face a few personal demons. If I come back, I'm going to attempt lucid dreaming. Not sure why I bother posting. I doubt anyone who reads this really cares.

Not Much to Tell

First, I want to apologize being gone for so long. The nightmares were keeping me from sleeping, and my schoolwork added onto it, made it hard to focus on the blog. And, oddly enough, when I did happen to visit the blog, I couldn't remember my password. I managed to figure it out though, so at least I solved one problem. While I was gone though, I had a lot of time to think. I've come to terms with a few things, and I'm not sure I like that. Also, I feel like there's another presence watching me, but it feels different. It almost feels human. I've got to get going. I've got a few things to do, now that I have a week off school. I'll be in touch.

A Quick Update

Things are starting to calm down around here, so I thought I'd check in. I'll explain where I've been when I have more time.

Unsettling Disturbances

I'm still not sure what to make of the events that transpired around me this weekend, but I need to tell you guys what happened.

Previous Post - Saturday
Nothing other than the usual feeling of being watched by It and the nightmares occurred. It troubles me that I've become so used to them being part of everyday life.

My orienteering team went to another competition, at the same place I was assaulted last month. I fared better during the event then I did last time, and It only watched me, but I was disqualified for missing a point. After I returned to where we were set up, I walked down to the beach, some twenty feet away. I spotted a rock outcropping that jutted out and stopped right at the shoreline. I climbed it, and lo and behold, It was on the opposing bank of the lake.

I was filled with anger, thinking that it was time I did something to try and fight back. I sat down on the outcropping, just above the water, and entered into a meditative position, and began to exert my presence against It's own. What I had hoped to gain from this was to force It out of my head, so that I might get the nightmares to stop.

What resulted was more or less a spiritual shoving match, me trying to get It out, It trying to stay in. As this happened, I could hear the tide growing stronger, the waves becoming increasingly violent. When it finally ended, it felt like I had managed to kick It out of my head. As I climbed down the rocks, feeling triumphant, I spotted something that had washed ashore, and bent down to retrive it.

It was a black leaf, darker than the blackest of obsidian. As I held it, I felt it leaching away at my hand, draining me. A horrid sight flashed into my mind; a giant tree, a mile high at least, with massive branches that dozens of bodies hung from, their entrails hanging out like streamers. The tree itself leaked blood, and the roots covered the entire surface on which I stood. The roots started wrapping around me, crushing every bone in my body as I slowly died.

Upon snapping out of the vision, I dropped the leaf, and ground it into the sand, stomping it to pieces. As soon as I finished, the tide kicked up again, crashing onto the shore, and taking the leaf fragments with it. The nightmares are now agonizingly worse, and I'm becoming extremely exhausted. It watches me wherever I go, with only brief moments where It leaves me be. Things have become so much worse than I thought they would.

But I can't run. Not yet. I swore an oath to someone, and I plan to see it through, no matter the cost. And if that means enduring this torment for a while longer, so be it. Besides, it gives you guys some breathing room, which makes it twice as worth it. I've got to go, I'll keep in touch.

A Rundown of Events

I apologize for taking so long. Schoolwork has me busy, so I may not post as often as I'd like. That said I'll bring everyone up to speed on what I've been doing:

I participated in an orienteering competition  I was doing fine, until I stopped to help another person figure out where they were going. We were taking the same course, so we decided to work together. Sadly, she wasn't very good, and we quickly became lost. We spent the next hour wandering the forest. All the while I could feel It watching, but It never made a move. We eventually made it back to the starting zone. Neither of our teams won trophies.

Nothing of note occurred with me today, though I did got soaked with rain.

My after school orienteering practice was canceled, so I spent the day working on my Latin and other homework.

The power in my school went out during first period, and I suffered from (and still am) a horrible headache all day.

All in all, things have been slow around here. BlackRose, on the other hand, has been very busy. I wish him the best of luck. I'll post again soon.

Time To Explain

Alright, I'm able to stay awake for now, so I'll elaborate on what happened to me two days ago. Against my better judgment, I joined my school's orienteering team. For those that don't know, orienteering is when you run through the forest with only a compass and a map.I know, bad idea, but I won't let It ruin what I enjoy doing.

Anyway, we went to a nearby orienteering course to practice for a competition on Sunday. As I made my way through the course, I caught up with another teammate, the team captain, and we worked our way forward at a good pace, until we became confused where the next marker was. At this point, another runner caught up with us, and the three of us found it shortly after. As we were running , the others ahead of me jumped over some deadfall. As I jumped over, I was about to land just fine, when something grabbed my ankle and pulled my leg from under me, and it made me land on my leg wrong. It was hard as granite, and it chilled me to the bone. As the others came to see if I was okay, I hurried forward and turned to see what had snagged me.

As to be expected, there was nothing there that could have gotten me. I think It was trying to send me a message, like "You're not safe in the forest. Remember why." The others assumed I jumped wrong, and I didn't correct them.The rest of the course went without incident, though I could tell It was watching me.

I would have explained yesterday, but I was working at my school football game, and then I went from there straight to an overnight fundraiser for special needs children. I got home, and immediately passed out from exhaustion. I woke up, still tired, and decided to fill everyone in. Right, so I've gt things to do today, and then the orienteering competition tomorrow. Yes, I'm still going to that. Like I said, It is not taking away what I enjoy doing. I'll tell you guys how it goes when that finishes. Until next time.

A Cold Night Alone

I can't explain much right now. I can still feel It, watching. My leg still hurts from what happened. I'll elaborate tomorrow, if I can. And BlackRose, I'm serious. Run. It's cold again. It shouldn't be cold in here. Why is it so cold?

A Lesson Learned

I first appeared on one of Hakurei Ryuu's posts last month. Four days after my first comment, I saw It for myself. I'll explain what happened as best I remember it.

I was returning from my second day of school, me and my friends having an entertaining conversation about how their summer vacations had gone. When the bus finally reached my stop, I got off and started walking up the road towards my house. Now, my bus stop happens to be across the street from a somewhat dense forest. As I walked, I turned to say goodbye to another student, whose home was in the opposite direction. As I turned, I spotted something strange in the forest, so I stopped and squinted to try and get a better look.

Sadly, I saw all to well what It was, and was immediately filled with fear, and my head was struck with a searing pain. I nearly dropped my bag as I sprinted down the road. As I cut through my neighbors yard, I slowed down to catch my breath, and see if It was still behind me. Though I couldn't see It, I still felt It's wretched gaze upon me, so I continued to run into my house, where I proceeded to leave a semi-frantic plea for help, and promptly passed out.

At this point, I should note that I had been suffering from Slender Man related nightmares for several weeks, after meticulously reading multiple slenderblogs. When I read Hakurei's response, I immediately felt ashamed. In my panicked state, I had forgotten to explain my situation. After a short conversation on what happened and what I could try next, I re-read everything. A few things she said had hit home. In a way, that conversation may have been a key factor in my decision to start this blog.

Anyway, I'm calling it a night. Hopefully I won't be to busy with school to post tomorrow.

An Introduction

Greetings. Seeing as how I'm a newer face, allow me to elaborate on a few things.
Though I will keep my name under raps,  I go by Shadow. I am a junior in high school. This blog was started during the Third Generation of Sages (AmalgamationSage, Hakurei Ryuu, and Kay). In the days to come, I will be attempting to help any Runners that come my way.

I started this blog for several reasons. 1) I saw what was happening in the many slenderblogs and wanted to help. 2) I have seen the Slender Man for myself, and hope I myself can find help here.

I know that by getting involved in all this, I'm signing my own death warrant. That said, everyone dies some day, and it's not like I have much to live for. Besides, I'd rather rather fight/protect others from a supernatural abomination than work at McDonalds.

Remember, so long as a light still shines, the darkness will never win.
