* UnreliableCanon: This is the general idea behind this and the only way to be a fan of every version of every [[WebOriginal/TheSlenderManMythos Slender]][[WebVideo/MarbleHornets man]] [[EverymanHYBRID webisode]] series without discontinuity derailing your enjoyment of each. It helps that each monster is an EldritchAbomination and the bending of reality isn't hard to believe, but when everyone is going a different way with the interpretations, you just have to let some things slide.

[[http://www.thefearmythos.com The Fear Mythos]] is a collaborative writing community project spanning hundreds of blogs and featuring a good number of antagonists. It acts as a SpinOff of sorts to the [[Franchise/TheSlenderManMythos Slender Man Mythos]].

The premise is simple: there are these monsters called "Fears," original creatures [[note]]The Slender Man and The Rake, two creatures from the public domain of creepypasta, were at one point classified as Fears, but that's no longer pushed. Authors can feel free to call them Fears if they want due to our open source nature, but for all intents and purposes they won't be covered on this page.[[/note]] that are, for lack of a better term, the embodiments of fears. [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Hence the name.]] TheFearMythos deals with blogs, video logs, creepypasta, and whatever else there exists that regard to these disturbing beings (there is now even a book). No canon or continuity required; writers get complete freedom.

The Fear Mythos manifesto and some other helpful information can be found [[http://thefearmythos.blogspot.com/ here.]]

A current list of all current blogs can be found [[http://thefearmythos.wikia.com/wiki/The_Blogs here]] and vlogs [[http://thefearmythos.wikia.com/wiki/The_Vlogs here]], while a list of Fears (and descriptions) can be found [[Characters/TheFearMythos on the characters page]].
