WMG: The Fear Mythos
Slender Man rules other fears or at last is strongest of themSlender represents the fear of unknown, which both HP Lovecraft and Stephen King noted to be strongest of all kinds of fear.
- Jossed, as certain fears defy the slender man.
- Not necessarily. Though it suggests that he doesn't likely "rule" the other Fears, he could still be the strongest.
- He certainly seems to have a dominant role in many Mythos stories. To some extent, this is a natural result of the Slender Man's status as Canon Immigrant and Ensemble Dark Horse: he has an established fanbase pulling for him. The same can be said for fellow immigrant, the Rake, albeit to a lesser extent.
- The slender man in The Fear Mythos represents the fear of strangers and, in some interpretations, trees. Not the fear of the unknown. Every Fear is the fear of the unknown when done right.
The wooden girl is responsible for Candle Cove.She turned the live-action girl into a doll. I think. The blog To light a candle http://tolightacandle.blogspot.com actually uses this as a fact. We also find out that yes she can turn people into dolls,all the C.C. puppets are legacy characters and out protagnist becomes the new Pirate Percy

The Manufactured Newborn's tower is actually a mech under construction.
Many murderous fears are actually benevolentThe afterlife is said to be being a powerless passanger in the Archangel forever, but the vctims of the Lost City instead (might) become Nightwalkers, so there is already precedence for Fears being able to inflict another afterlife. Or at least in the end of Excentrically Bored, Steward has come to believe something similar.
One "prize" in the Ludus Deorum is controll of the AfterlifeThe Archangel, the Fear of religion is normally considered the afterlife, but the Dying Man would, as the Fear of death, at least make as much sense, if not moreso (especially as fear of death is probably a mayor factor in the evolution of religiosity). However, we know that the Archangel is the one most involved in the Grand Game, so he might have won the aterlife aspect, at least for now. (Another reason of course being that the Archangel predates the Dying Man).
Tom Lehrer is running from The Convocation.I mean, to anyone who's heard "Poisoning Pigeons in the Park", it should be obvious. Either that or he's an anti-fear of The Convocation.
