Sorry for the repost, re-wording it because some stuff happened
So you know how in that episode, “Thinman” of SPN they mentioned fans, and forums, and how the lore differs from blog to blog. Yeah, those blogs and that lore actually exist and we are the fans and creators of those blogs/vlogs and since our fandoms are bumping into one another, I’d thought I’d introduce us.
First and foremost, please watch this video here- "Intro to the Slenderverse"
As a short explanation, the slenderverse consists of both fans of and creators of slenderseries, or youtube-based series such as Marble Hornets. All of these series have one thing in common: Victor Surge’s mythical Slenderman, but some have elaborated on the myth. Out of the hundreds of series, excluding the foundation of the verse (MH), there are several that are considered to be “major” series that often overlap with one another. Those series include:
5. Caughtnotsleeping (this one really stays in its own little game)
aaaand 7. Whisperedfaith (although there are cameos in some of the other series, this is mostly based around the Rake and only became part of the ‘verse when it crossed over with KeretinGarden)
If you’re curious about more series, check out SlendyWeek or the Slenderman Mythos section at Unfiction.
Two of the biggest communities for the Slenderverse are Slendernation and Hornetcon, but the fandom has a large presence here on tumblr (but we also mostly keep to ourselves.)
As an end note, I made this post because a lot of the fandom and the creators of various slenderseries were worried about the episode possibly overshadowing the hardwork, dedication, and talent put into these series, much like the game Slender did when it first came out.
Many if not most of the people in the fandom are Supernatural fans too, and I know that if you like found-footage style movies or shows, you’ll love the slenderverse and will fit right in.
So that will be all, happy watching, and I hope you enjoy the episode!
