Go To

Make It Count is a blog by Celeste McLachlan (or 'Celie' if you're nice) chronicling the life of a Journalist.

...Well, it would have been had Celie's best friend, Rose not been stalked by Slenderman. Oh! And there's even a Gentleman (or lady) Stalker who calls himself Practical Cat. Fun.

And so follows one of the most well-written Slenderblogs, along with Character Development that even draws Zeke Strahm into commenting.


Make It Count provides examples of:

  • Being Watched: Celeste's best friend, Rose was being stalked for at least two weeks by Slenderman.
  • Don't Go in the Woods: Unfortunately for Celie, this becomes a requirement when she joins the search party for the Missing People. Factor in that she lives next to the local woods...
  • Genre Savvy: Celeste, after Rose's disappearance goes and reads ever blog she can get her hands on.
  • Gorn: Try reading he description of the bodies in the woods after eating. I dare you.
  • Intrepid Reporter: Celeste, of course.
  • Police are Useless: Subverted. While the police don't know Celeste's whole story, they do provide support and she even befriends a detective.
  • Shout-Out: Considering Celeste is currently planning on going to Miskatonic University, I'd say Lovecraft would be one.
    • Also, Dav Flamerock, a user involved in the Just Another Fool ARG as a graduate student in Miskatonic University who is studying the Slender Man myths, gets name dropped during Celie's rant at the "Cowboy Creeper."
  • Wicked Stepmother: Angel doesn't exactly live up to her name...


How well does it match the trope?
