After the second tape, his account is hacked. As a result, he founds a video called "watches You " This footage contained warning signs.
After the fifth tape, Nikola says that Miroslav dissapeared .
In "The Note " Nikola shows a note that was put under his friend's desk. The note's handwriting looked like Miroslav's one. In "Answers and Questions " Nikola finds Miroslav in the school yard. After asking him about the note, Miroslav goes away from school, leaving another note. It's unknown what the second note contains.
"Home Recording " shows Nikola in his home, recording himself scared. He couldn't contact his mom. After a while, he receives a call from her. Then, he goes insane. Few minutes later, he falls down on the floor. He wakes up with differnet clothes and decides to end the recording.
One week later, "THRUTH " is uploaded. The video includes more warning signs. Also, his Google+ gets hijacked and two photos are uploaded. These pictures are curently used in the channel and in the Twitter account.
"Corruption " is another video uploaded without Nikola's knowing. The video is long 17 seconds and it shows poorly drawn drawings. They include the Slender Man, close to a guy without his head and another man.
Nikola decides to make an update (Scared ) , in which he tells the reason why he was quiet for a while. He tells that he was in an abandoned building in the middle of the night. He sees one of his friends's corpse (without his head) and flees in terror. When he ran away, he saw a masked man stabbing him. Then, he woke up in his room, holding a note ffrom the building.
"'Behind the Mask' " shows Nikola, claiming that Miroslav betrayed him and he was the masked man. Then, he hears a noise from the other room. Nikola goes there, but gets hit by the Slender Man. He teleports in the hall of the other part in his house. After finding keys in his pocket, he unlocks the door and runs downstairs. When reaching the ground, he teleports in his own room. The video ends there.
After a week or more, Nikola creates a Twitter account. Few days later, he posts a misterious tweet with a picture. Later, he says that he doesn't rememeber posting it.
Later, the Tape videos are deleted.
On 06/11/2014 "The Package " video is posted. In it, Nikola tells a dream he had - finding a package with pieces of paper and meeting with Miroslav. As he opens the package, he finds a CD/DVD disc, 7 notebook papers and eye lens placement instructions. With it, he confirms that this package belongs to a woman.
Nikola meets Miroslav and asks him few questions. Later, Miroslav was taken by The Tall Man and chases Nikola. (The Meeting ) After uploading the meeting video, he posts the CD files (TAPEVIDEO 1 , TAPEVIDEO 2 ) and an audio file from Miro's DOX. (The Audio File ) After making little changes on his YouTube, Nikola says that everything is calm.
After 11 days, he says that he found a video file in his System32 folder. (TAPES ) This video file contained short footages from Tapes 1, 3 and 5. After uploading, his Twitter is hacked by the Masked Man. He posts warning signs and replies to Nikola few Tweets. Then he changes his profile picture and his header photo.
In "Updates " Nikola says few updates from recently: getting a new phone with a better camera and his relatives are staying with him and his mother.
Nikola finds an Untitled video file while browsing his new phone contents. It contains a footage of him in his house. Few minutes in, he is pushed down the stairs by someone. After a long search, he is taken. The footage dates back when he found it.

One week later, "SECRETS" is uploaded by the Masked Man. Nikola tells that he won't be labeling these videos anymore with numbers.
Eli calls Nikola and they meet in the park once again. Eli's curiosity about the "secret" Nikola has is finally cooled down, as he says the entire story about his YouTube channel. After hearing everything, she tells her story too. They later decide to stay together.
Soon, Miroslav calls him and tells him that his parents are dead. Nikola informs Eli later.He says that he has to go back in Bulgaria and finish this, though, the possibility to go back is small.
The Masked Man uploads "SOON" which shows a clip of his family's death, a spy-like recording of Nikola and a folder belonging to Eli, containing 1-2 notes. Nikola says, that she gave him the folder, but he doesn't remember getting it with the notes.
After some weird tweets and a long wait of a recovery proccess, the ending video is uploaded. It starts with Nikola holding a knife facing his wardrobe. He says that he heard a bang from the wardrobe. He opens it, finding nothing. He is soon "dragged" in the wardrobe, teleporting in the park. He sees Eli and runs to her. She is controlled by Miroslav, saying that Nikola is going to die now. He runs, teleporting in a bathroom. Nikola coughs and falls on the floor. The video distorts and shows a text written by Miroslav, saying that he is sacrificing himself for Eli and Nikola. Nikola wakes up and teleports back in the room where the video started, facing the wardrobe. Then, he ends the video.
Miroslav/The Masked Man posts a video, in which he wants forgiveness. Then, screenshots of every videos is shown fast, showing the word "please"
Nikola meets Eli and tells her what happened. Nikola later says that this is his final video and he forgives Miroslav, and thanks him for saving them.
Some time later, an unknown person posts "DEATH ". It shows Eli in the distance of the park, images of other people who post their Slender-Series and Nikola with a knife.
Nikola makes a video of him explaining his endless paranoia and his own explanation of the previous video. He explains how hard things are being for him and eventually he will distance himself from his cousin (Eli) and his mother. Near the end of the video, Slenderman enters the room and takes Nikola. The footage ends here.
Then, on March 27th, Nikola celebrates his birthday by calling Eli and trying to forget the cryptic message pointing at his birthday. Around the evening, Eli tweets that Nikola dissapeared. The only evidence that was on the "crime scene" was a blood trail and his camera with a distorted video. She gives the video to the polce officers to recover it, while she creates an informative video regarding the situation, as well answering few questions that were "confusing".
After the police recovered the footage, Eli uploads it . She tweets , that the police told her to stop any kind of post/tweet. She says her goodbye to everyone and logs off. But a misterious tweet is posted and the Twitte account is renamed.
