Web Video: 5zer02
Xakk, Tyler, and Gavin are 3 guys that decide to make a YouTube series where they go around their city of Louisville, Kentucky and show the fun parts of it. During it things happen, unexplainable things. Stuff like weird distortion in their videos and videos they don't remember uploading...5zer02 is again another great series in The Slender Man Mythos.Their series can be found here. A helpful Unfiction thread can be found here.
This story provides examples of:
- Ax-Crazy: Xakk
- Combat Tentacles: Happens TWICE in the series. First time, tentacles come out from an open door. The second time? GIANT tentacles swinging around from above the buildings! Civillian screams included!
- Crossover: With another Slender Man series called TJA Projects.
- Foreshadowing: As with Apple Of Our Eye, it takes a few episodes for the whole Slender Man aspect of the story to get rolling (aside from some distortion in a couple of episodes along with comments about technical difficulties in editing videos together), but in the first episode, before anything starts, you can see the Operator Symbol etched into the window of a vacant storefront.
- Ham and Cheese: Xakk, "I'd like to see you try!" at one point hams it up when he hears one of his friends say how he'd love to wring his neck. Xakk, appearing out of nowhere down the street, responds with the quote mentioned earlier.
- Hellish Pupils: Happens to Xakk
- Lovecraftian Superpower: It's Slenderman. What more do you expect?
- Noodle Incident: "And here you'll see the deer sculptures, which we can never look at the same way again. No, we're not going to tell you why."
- Paranoia Fuel: This video will do it.
- In fact pretty all the videos they say they didn't upload are pretty much this.
- Playing Possum: Happens with Xakk. He appears to be "dead" at one point, but then later in the video he gets up. Then again, maybe he wasn't just playing and had become undead?
- Sanity Slippage: Happens to Xakk early in the series and leads to Ax-Crazy for him.
- Also seems to be happening to Tyler.
