DISCLAIMER: I’ve never been to prison, so I don’t know what the food there is like. But I imagine it isn’t that good. And for Pirate, bad food is the last straw. What will she do next? Well, it’s Pirate. What do you think she’ll do?
And now Pirate earns her just reward! Funnily enough, her talent for finding gems and gold probably means she’ll pay off her sentence pretty quickly. Nevertheless, remember this lesson: if you’re going to commit a crime…try to get away with it. I guess. Bad life lessons with Pirate!
A continuation of yesterday’s stealing spree…Pirate doesn’t commit very big crimes like murder, but she sure does commit a lot of small crimes. She’s also apparently capable of eating more than her own body weight in apples.
Pirate is many things, but she’s not gentle. Or a man. In fact, she’s sort of a jerk. But it seems she’s hit a new low — extorting apples from innocent stick people. Not cool Pirate, not cool.
It only makes sense that stick people would have smaller trees than humans. That’s good for them, but bad for Pirate. She’d probably have to eat an orchard’s worth of apples for just one meal. I guess it’s diet time.
The old apple-on-a-string trick might work on Pirate, but Knight’s a different cup of tea. (Don’t try using that on her either.) I also think that Knight’s less blindly optimistic than Pirate, so she’s less likely to fall for them anyway.
And now, my final theory on the origin of mass murderers — peer pressure! If everyone else killed people, would you do it too? I sure hope not, but it’s a good theory! I feel like this could be a 90’s style PSA about bullying. Also, the Balloon Man reappears since this is technically a flashback!
And now for my second theory on why monsters are made: they’re bored. For an eldritch being, killing people might be a hobby. A dark, depressing, horrific hobby. Makes sense to them, I guess.
We interrupt your regularly scheduled pictures to bring you…power outage! It was only for a few hours, but I didn’t complete my next Slender Man picture. So instead, here’s some sketches I did on paper of Pirate and Knight if they were older. I don’t like that kind of detailed style, but it was good practice.
And now, it’s time to speculate: what made the Slender Man into the infamous monster he is today? My first theory: he was bullied as a child. A Slender Child if you will. And that trauma led to him seeking vengeance by murdering everyone he comes across. It’s very possible. Next theory tomorrow!
