"Amy told me about this story of Slenderman, and, um... It sounded weird - I don't know how scared I am of someone named 'Slender Man'-"
It isn't. Find the room before TJ dies in it.
Tropes used in TJA Projects include:
- Abandoned Playground: A Walk in the Park
- Adults Are Useless: Played with. TJ is doing whatever she can to protect her child, although it's arguable as to how effective she can be against Slender Man. Nearly parental figure mentioned in the series does something, even if it is just babysitting.
- Adult Fear: Heavily, heavily invoked.
- Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: The antagonists threaten children, terrorize impoverished women, are responsible for ruining the lives of several families...and stole Amy's guitar.
- The Bechdel Test
- Blood From the Mouth: TJ. Averted as it's not blood but a strange black substance.
- The Cameo: Evan from Everyman HYBRID in the Our Trip To Jersey vid when the girls go out of state. He's looking at a tank.
- Also Xakk, Gavin, and others from the "5zer02" vlog, and an appearance from The Outside Agents.
- Creepy Doll: Dahlia's clown doll.
- Crossover: With another vlog called 5zer02
- Dude in Distress
- Fan Service: Just, fan service.
- Five-Finger Discount: Pulled by Amy at one point.
- Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: TJ as the responsible one and her brother as the foolish one.
- Gainax Ending: With the august happening mostly on Twitter and youtube censoring the ending isn't fully there A Literal Shoot the Dog was uploaded then removed, reaction video mentioned lost time, next video showing the lost time was censored from youtube because of Self-Harm which caused TJ to revise the ending down to the final answers video.
- Glamorous Single Mother: Averted with TJ. Motherhood + Slender Man weirdness is not easy.
- Growing the Beard: Starts off as a pretty average, low budget Slender vlog with two girls that seems to be on autopilot for the typical Slender Mythos signposts. Then Dahlia is introduced and the audience realizes that the stakes are much higher than just two college girls.
- Heterosexual Life Partners: TJ and Amy.
- Both in-game and out-of-game. After a viewer reported them to child services, the two purportedly had problems convincing them that they weren't a couple.
- Hot Mom: TJ
- Humanoid Abomination: Slender Man as always.
- Infant Immortality: Tension over whether this trope is played straight or subverted fuels much of the series.
- The Medic: TJ is a nurse. A nurse that carries a knife and a handgun.
- No Medication for Me: Amy starts off this way. And goes back to it in "Research/Heading to Indiana".
- High Octane Nightmare Fuel: It's to be expected.
- Papa Wolf: Jake. It doesn't work out too well.
- Physical Scars, Psychological Scars: Amy.
- Practical Joke: This is what the girls initially think is happening.
- Real Life Writes the Plot: As of the 06/10/11 Update entry, the girls mention joining the military to solve their financial problems. Apparently, the creators are actually planning to start basic training in January 2012.
- Sanity Slippage
- Self-Harm: Amy tears out her nose ring and pulls out a pinky nail.
- Second last video taken down from youtube because of this (see Unfiction for mirror).
- Shout-Out: Mostly to other works which feature children in peril.
- Not to mention the obligatory "20 dollars" meme.
- Xakk makes several references to the protagonists of some other Slenderseries in "More Questions, No Answers". References to other slender series are made by the main characters as well.
- Xakk does it again in "Searching for the Tripp House" where he mentions Patrick from ML Andersen 0.
- Slender Man Mythos
- Talkative Loon: Amy in Look at the Liar
- Teen Pregnancy: TJ with Dahlia.
- You Killed My Father: Amy to Slenderman.
- Also, TJ probably killing Jake in his guise as the Plague Doctor
- Very Loosely Based on a True Story: Patricia Pearl Tripp (aka Sight) was actually a kidnapping victim in the 20th century rather than the 19th century as in the series. Involvement of Slender Man not actually true. We hope.
