A writer’s brain is full of little gifts, like a piñata at a birthday party. It’s also full of demons, like a piñata at a birthday party in a mental hospital. The truth is, it’s demons that keep a tortured writer’s spirit alive, not Tootsie Rolls. Sure they’ll give you a tiny burst of energy, but they won’t do squat for your writing. So treat your demons with the respect they deserve, and with enough prescriptions to keep you wearing pants. -Colin Nissan

I am the world first Moral Absurdist. I noticed that there was not a philosophical term as such, so I coined it. Moral Absurdism: The belief that the concepts of "good" and evil" do not exist, and that morality is a sham, yet deciding to embrace the absurdity of that and hold a moral system anyways. The logical conclusion of nihilism. See also: Absurdism, Existentialism.

Just this Mythos: Mirrors. Dolls. Personal demons. Fear (the emotion). Symbolism (as a concept). Blogs and blogging. Writing one chapter over the course of three days. Snowfall, particularly if it's part of a winter storm. Large flocks of ravens or crows. Swarms of bees/wasps/hornets.
Specific to Slenderman, but can fold into this Mythos: Ciphers, codes, and puzzles. Cameras. Paranoia. Insanity and mental instability. Coughing. Forests, especially pine forests. Parks, especially large ones with lots of trails and especially if there's odd structures on or off trail, like tunnels. Static/white noise. Black business suits, particularly if paired with a black or red tie. Masks. Obfuscation/crypticness. The unknown. Curiosity. The feeling of being watched/followed.
