I was reading over an article about people's 'real' encounters with the Slender Man that I believe you linked back to at some point on the blog. I am a long-time fan of the mythos, the vlogs and blogs, and was terrified of the 'creature' for months to come after first watching Marble Hornets. I have long gotten over that fear, but I remembered, as I was reading the article, something that I believed to be a dream almost two years ago when I was on vacation.

I had been scared of the dark at this point, so my brother was also sleeping in one of the several beds in the room. The TV was on, so it was fairly lit up, as well. The door was cracked open, and I was laying in a bed that was practically angled perfect to see right out of that crack. The next part I believe to be a dream, but am a bit wary about, having read your article - I saw something outside of my door, peaking in at me, that matched the description of The Slender Man. It was a tall suited man with no face.

However, I felt strangely calm, the way one does when they're just waking up from a deep, comfortable sleep. I am still trying to believe that this was most likely a trick of the eyes or a dream, but I decided that perhaps the story was worth sharing with you. I feel a bit scared now, after reading your article, and am buying your book for my upcoming birthday.

Thank you for your time.
