-->-- [[http://viveredisce-cogitamori.blogspot.com/2010/09/salve-puellae-et-pueri.html Salve, Puellae et Pueri , the first post]]

[[http://viveredisce-cogitamori.blogspot.com/ Vivere disce]] is the blog of Jean, intrepid geek and British college student who originally began the blog to [[ChekhovsSkill aid in her Latin studies.]] After her friend [[http://viveredisce-cogitamori.blogspot.com/2010/09/3rd-declension-present-future-imp-ah.html Kim]] leaves mysteriously, Jean records her attempts to understand why her friend would disappear. After receiving some mysterious threats and looking through Kim's notes, Jean begins to notice a [[TheSlenderManMythos familiar, faceless pattern]].

Jean's investigations lead her to discover Slender Man, kick a proxy in the balls, befriend other bloggers, [[BreakTheCutie and lose her family]]. Recently Jean seems to have taken it upon herself to help Kim, save her sister Elsie and find her friend Sam. As time goes on, the blog becomes more research based, as Jean attempts to find a way to defend herself from the Slender Man. [[TomeOfEldritchLore It does not go as]] [[DrivenToMadness planned.]]
