The Slender Man Wiki


A Screenplay Named Vermilion, Part 1

Hey there.

I'm Prawn. Some of you might've met me lurking around and all; I'm relatively new to this wiki.

Anyway, I thought that I'd share an exciting development with you all.

I'm currently working on a screenplay for an adaptation of ChaosWizard13's critically acclaimed webcomic Vermilion; for those of you who don't know, the comic surrounds the escapades of Phoebe Winter, a girl living in the 1850s, as she befriends a benevolent Slender Man while her close friend, Eustace Lawrence, grapples with a sinister cult known as the Ark. It's considered by some to be the finest Slender-based webcomic ever written; I myself believe this. 

Anyway, my screenplay is called 'Vermilion', and, while sticking to the overall plot and subplots and copying the dialogue word-for-word, I've also included original scenes which will expand upon the established plots and further elaborate upon Slender and Phoebe's relationship, Eustace and the Ark, etc.

I've also made the decision to score this intended adaptation with actual licensed music, just because I believe that it will somehow enhance the tone of the screenplay; at this point, the tone is like a surreal vichyssoise that could be labeled as 'supernatural-romantic-historical-comedy-drama'.

Anyway, for now, I've decided to reveal the narrowed-down soundtrack; out of all the spoilers I can give you at this stage, the best one would have to be the music which sets the score for the whole adaptation. Most of it is from the 1960s, 70s and 80s, and I made very painful choices and removed several good songs that either repeated a certain theme or didn't exactly fit the mood musically and/or lyrically.

Here they are:

Fairport Convention - Who Knows Where the Time Goes (1969) [1]

John Cale - If You Were Still Around (1982) [2]

The Go-Betweens - Dusty In Here (1983) [3]

The Velvet Underground - Candy Says (1969) [4]

Big Star - Holocaust (1978) [5]

Fleetwood Mac - Landslide (1975) [6]

Johnny Cash - Hurt (2002) [7]

Hope you enjoy, as more updates on the screenplay are to come.
