Trivia / The Slender Man Mythos
Colbert Bump: Roger Ebert praised Marble Hornets on his Twitter account. This was nearly enough to give Slender Man enough notability to stay on Wikipedia.
Missing Episode: Often both blog and vlog posts disappear, typically without warning. Not all of them return either...
Name's the Same:
There's a surprisingly large amount of bloggers named or going by the alias of Jay, J, [J], etc.
The name Jeff's popped up a few times, as well as different versions of Elizabeth.
Alex has also popped up more than once.
One of Us:
There is actually a surprising amount of slenderbloggers/commenters who are also tropers. Jean, Genevieve, Sandra, Omega, Zero, Maduin, Andy, Jeff, and Broeckchen, to name just a few of the ones who have actually mentioned the site.
Even Reach is a troper; apparently he got into it from a post in Let Us Live where Jeff declares his recent defeat of another Revenant a Crowning Moment of Awesome.
Dr. Cairo of compileTRUTH as well.
Even the AI has referenced tropes. When asked to analyze TV Tropes, it simply said,
"What the fuck?" Jeff of Everyman HYBRID once mentioned TV Tropes in a ustream, calling it 'a site you will waste hours of your life on'.
Running the Asylum: Except technically, the whole Mythos began this way.
