Welcome to Musings, Sugary Snicket's personal blog here on WordFlow! Here, you can find out what Sugary's doing now and where she's going next, as well as get her opinion on her fandoms, assorted sundry writing topics, and various world events and issues, from the minor to the extremely major.

Ongoing and Past article series here include:

  • My Beef With: A series of articles that are, in a word, rants. From nerdrage to righteous aggression, from nitpicking things to firm opinions, here's my take on things that irritate or annoy me. Pansies who can't take a little harsh criticism need not apply.
  • Weird Science: This series is devoted to applying science and mathematics to fictional concepts, myths, and legends of all kinds. Could dragons really exist? What are your odds of encountering the Joker... and surviving? What's margarine made of, anyway? To quote Poe, this and more I sit divining in this series of entries.
  • The Pen Is Mightier: Attention all new writers, old writers, and authors of all ages! In this series, I'll be discussing ways to improve your writing, techniques I as an author use (and how to use them), and other creative writing related topics. If you're looking for some tips and tricks, or if you just want to connect with a fellow author, then look no further than right here.
  • Jokerology 101: You want more Joker theories? You got it. By popular demand, this new series is devoted to dissecting and examining that Mogul of Mountebanks, that Harlequin of Hate, the Clown Prince of Crime himself, the Joker. Forget Ozzy's crooning of what went on in Alistaire Crowley's head - what's on J's mind? What kind of character archetype could he possibly be, and how does he work as a perfect foil to the Dark Knight? Is his clothing a symbol of something, or just the product of a deranged mind? All apt questions, so stick around to read and find out, or the joke might just be on you.
  • Watching The Woods: Listen up all you Hornets, Tribies, Hybrids, and assorted Slenderfans! This is the article series for you - in it, I step outside of the canon of the Slenderman Mythos and Slenderverse proper to theorize, speculate, give opinions on, and comment on all things related to everyone's favorite tall and faceless stalker. Please note that these articles all discuss the Mythos and the entity involved from a strictly OOG standpoint. All you members of the site who also Slenderblog/vlog are free to stay in character if you want, but please don't pick on those who aren't doing so. If things get too messy between you guys, I will take action, so play nice. Oh, and anyone who uses "Slender" to refer to the entity at hand will have their comments deleted. :3

The Pen Is Mightier: Scary 101 - How To Write A Good Horror Story

Posted on April 23, 2013 at 6:40 PM Comments comments (0)

Guys, I am an occasional peruser of Creepypasta, short horror, and Slenderman stories. I love horror stories, I love reading them, writing them, and seeing other people's reactions to them. As I've said before on this blog, I prefer psychologically horrific stories to stories that rely on gore and violence, or on too many monsters. The former is why I watch slasher films to root for the bad guy, and the latter is part of why, while I do admire the Fear Mythos and even find some of the beastie...

The Pen Is Mightier/My Beef With: Tech Writing Classes Are Bullshit.

Posted on April 15, 2013 at 9:05 AM Comments comments (0)

I am sick of Tech Writing class.

Granted, a lot of my irritation is near-graduation fatigue (yes, I'll finally be graduating with my A.A.A.S. soon! ^0^), but really. REALLY. FUCKING REALLY, you just don't even know. You really don't even know about this particular Tech Writing class.

Now, to be clear with you guys, I have zero issue with Technical Writing itself. Tech Writing is an important tool for anyone going into any field. You just...

My Beef With/Watching The Woods: ImProxybru! - On Slender: The Arrival and Proxy Confusion...

Posted on April 1, 2013 at 10:40 AM Comments comments (0)

So guys, let's talk about Slender: The Arrival.

Love it or hate it, the game is pretty. Damn. Cool. The design is just gorgeous, in fact i'd argue it's probably one of the most beautiful Slenderman games out there. Slenderman can move in subtle ways like breathing (um, WTF, one, that's not an activity normally associated with Slenderman, and two, that's fucking creepy, yo), hunching over, and tilting his head (and yes, tentacles too; never forget the ...

Note: This blog entry discusses an ARG (corvidaek) that I am involved in. This blog entry is Out Of Game for that ARG and discusses some aspects of what went on behind the scenes. Any In-Game comments posted on this entry will be removed. This entry may also spoil parts of the ARG for those either not caught up yet, or reading this entry after the ARG has finished. If you're one of those folks, please proceed with caution.

Update as of February 26, 2013: Yes, this is really, seriously going to happen. Word of Creator has even stated this is going to happen, and that Troy and Co. will be keeping an eye on Hollywood so they don't turn MH into horrible shit. Does that allay your fears now, hearing it straight from the guys who made the damn series?

Watching The Woods: The Half-Baked Confessions Of An Obsessed Slenderfan

Posted on February 23, 2013 at 6:45 PM Comments comments (0)

Or, In Which Snicket Admits to Shit for Your Sick Amusement. :3

So there's a Tumblr out there I poke around on every so often entitled Slenderman Confessions. It's one of a long line of Fandom Confessions Tumblrs, apparently this is a big thing amongst Tumblrites. And it's amazing how much you can identify with on that site when it comes to being a fan of the Mythos.

Watching The Woods: This Is Why I'm Paranoid - The Top 8 Things In-Mythos That Scare Me

Posted on February 17, 2013 at 11:40 PM Comments comments (0)

CAUTION: This particular entry heavily discusses some disturbing, creepy, and scary aspects of the Slenderman Mythos. There are links to stories and videos below the cut that can and will give some people nightmares, or at least leave you paranoid for a good long while. The links/vids may also potentially spoil those of you who have not caught up with/started certain series yet or are new to the Mythos. if you think you might be spoiled, or if you are someone who is easily jumpscared, made pa...

My Beef With/Watching The Woods: Idiot Slenderfans

Posted on January 10, 2013 at 11:50 PM Comments comments (0)

The title. Read it.


Okay, so I might be a newcomer to the Mythos, but I've seen enough idiotic behavior in it to last me a lifetime. This rant's gonna be short, and it's gonna be sweet, but I need to get it out of my system because it chafes me and it ruins my enjoyment of certain parts of the Mythos sometimes. Not that it ruins the Mythos itself for me, because

My Beef With: Son, I Am Disappoint.

Posted on January 8, 2013 at 9:05 PM Comments comments (0)

So, so very disappoint. :c

Okay, so let me talk about what I just found out this afternoon when I came home from work. I get online, go to dick around on my favorite Slenderman forums. For me this is the lovely Slender Nation and the intensely fun Slenderman's Shadow forums. I go to the former because I love the Mythos, and I go to the latter because I'm a gamer and I love indie freeware horror games. Being both a broke college kid and an LPer, it's only natural th...

Yeah, so I've done this before. Yeah, so it wasn't impressive. But YOLO bitches I don't care; I'm running on zero hours of sleep and Coca-Cola and straight-gunned MST3K and TribeTwelve, so I'm doing this shit. Again. It's a new year, with new experiences and now things to do, so it doesn't count anyway since the last time I did this was last year. So nyah-nyah, my blog my ...

My Beef With: The Five Things Customers Do That Make My Job Hell

Posted on December 24, 2012 at 5:00 PM Comments comments (0)

Now, I believe on this blog before, I've discussed the fact that I work service. Specifically, I work fast food. This is usually a pretty decent deal, because for one I get free food and for another it's not an overly difficult job. I like my bosses and most of my coworkers, and my boyfriend works at the same branch that I do, so sometimes I get to see him and even have lunch with him. As long as I do what I'm supposed to and am polite, most of the time I have a good day at work.

Why Do Men Become Stupid Around Christmas?

Posted on December 22, 2012 at 3:25 PM Comments comments (0)

I have to confess to my male readers that I will never, never understand why you guys seem to think we womenfolk suck at directions if we get lost so much as once. Seriously. I know this is a common complaint about men and directions, or women and directions, but dear God - I never realized how serious it was until this weekend.

First though, I need to tell you about my boyfriend.

Now, my boyfriend is not a stupid man, in fact he's quite intelligent and actually is going for a Doc...

The Creepypasta Tumblr's 30 Day Challenge!

Posted on November 21, 2012 at 4:20 PM Comments comments (0)

Okay, okay, I promise I've had enough of the creepypasta after this one and I'll try to keep it to a minimum for a while, because I'm sure you guys are getting sick of my little "OMG Creepypasta rules and Slenderman is so damn scary ararararagh!" phase that I'm going through. I apologize for the retarded fanishness and I'll keep it down after this.

But see, I am addicted to the stuff and I can't stop reading it. I love Creepypasta and I love writing in that universe (especially for Tall...

Weird Science/Watching The Woods: SlenderTrig!

Posted on October 18, 2012 at 7:25 PM Comments comments (4)

Hi there, and welcome to yet another installation of Weird Science, a series of blog entries here on Musings where I take a look at the fictional and apply scientific and mathematical fact to it. Today, I'm headed into the forest lovely, dark, and deep to tackle the trigonometry of the Slenderman. Care to join me, reader? Yes? Well, alright - just make sure you stay close! Stragglers never fare well in these woods, especially when it's night time and they're all alone...

Hello everyone! :3 Super happy tonight, because I have a special little surprise for you... my return to horror and first foray into new fandom territory has just been posted under the Fanfiction Section, in the new Slenderman Mythos/Creepypasta section. And so, dear reader, I humbly present to you my first Slenderfic, which I have entitled "The Hunted".


This story, written in a journal-like format, is just a bit different from your garden-variety Slenderstory. In this tale,...

Okay, so good news for those poetry fans in the audience, because I've finally gotten the time to update both of my poetry sections (original and fanfic) to include some new poems. About, oh, fifteen of them. XD Thirteen new, original poems have been put under the Poetry section, and the Fanpoetry section now has a new category for poetry with two brand spanking new fandom poems for you to read. Up for some Doctor Who poetry? Allonz-y! :3

Always Have Hash Browns: Four Lessons Learned From Working in Fast Food

Posted on September 19, 2012 at 11:25 PM Comments comments (0)

Note: You may notice I'm being much less snarky in this blog entry than normal, and that this entry contains no profanity. This is for a very, very good reason - because this entry talks about a workplace of mine that has a very strict approach about saying anything bad about the company that runs it, let alone anyone working there. If I say anything objectionable in this entry, it could well cost me my job, and I don't want that. Therefore, any and all names, including that...

Weird Science - Pikachu Used 'Roid Rage!: The Chemistry of Vitamins in Pokemon

Guys, I am a serious nerd, and if you've read this blog for any length of time you're very likely aware of this. You should also be aware, my dear and dedicated Muselings (that is the technical term for those Internet users who read my humble little blog, a term invented as of five seconds ago), that two of my great loves on this site are Chemistry and Pokemon. Now, I've discussed Pokemon on this blog before, although that discussion concerned anti-Pokemon and anti-Pokefa...
