Fowl6789 says: @AngelGrace777 YOu think Spiderfingers ordering the rape and eventual death of Lissie is ‘inhumane and ungodly?’ Of course it is! Inhumane AND ungodly, hello!? You don’t get it do you, Stephanie Tent is going to war on Christians? Hello? Wonder how she’s gonna stick it to the Muslims? Me (and the others who DO get it), we just can’t wait!

Powerpuffgirl280977 says: Re: What Does Spiderfingers Say About His Creator?
The gods in Tent’s universe are by definition omnipotent but not above anger jealousy or fear. The actions that flow from these negative emotions are amplified through a lack of control or responsibility. I'd love to know more about Stephanie Tent's relationship with her father LOL! Spiderfingers is basically a good guy but his weakness is his powers, especially his association with Rooenn. When we get angry the chances are that we will have our sense of morality kick in and prevent us from acting on our darkest desires. Interestingly, Spiderfingers doesn’t necessarily act within the constraints of what you and I find acceptable, arguably because he is tempted in viewing himself above man’s law. His identity crisis (between idol and human) helps to curb the audience (or at least me!) away from black and white signifiers such as good and evil. Moreover, Spiderfingers is a demigod with memories of horrific punishments that take root in the gory and indulgent tales of ancient Greece – the conditions of a more barbarous culture have shaped the reactions he exhibits when in duress. Using a flamboyant ultra violent comic style format, Tent is saying that gods are exaggerated human archetypes - granted, this is nothing new but Spiderfingers' wearing the Superman costume is maybe an attempt to showcase this old philosophy into mainstream pop culture. I think! I really haven't answered the original question have I?

Don’t know if Spiderfingers is good or evil. Somewhere inbetween??? Anyone know what the real John Clay is like? Does he believe he is Spiderfingers or are Tent and Clay both in cahoots to make a career out of speculation? Is he still homeless wandering the streets somewhere, telling people stories? Also, why so much violence in Hero-Worship? Was the rape needed in the story?

TheHappySnapper says: Stephanie’s made a theological statement using the coupling of media and narrative as a canvas. I think Stephanie is compelled to ask her readers to meditate on the nature of survival via invisible-all-seeing-divine beings. @BOBAFETTASLEGOTOY Man, Stephanie Tent is - in my opinion - a good writer who had the good fortune to be inspired by a well meaning albeit disturbed homeless man who has granted her permission to write up his fantasy stories for the world to see. If they are in cahoots to draw attention to what they're doing then how is that a bad thing? I'd say it's a novel take on marketting a web-story. Good for them!

Powerpuffgirl280977 says: Not sure how many stories he has in him after Hero-Worship since he appears to identify more with human values towards the end. For his brief moment, Spiderfingers is an intriging anti-hero. His wearing of the Superman logo is a perversion not unlike the Nazi's appropriating the Swastika for their own nefarious ends.

Fowl6789 says: @AngelGrace777 Hell yeah, O.K. Your god (because hey, I guess you HAVE to be Christian with a STUPID tag like AngelGrace) kills and maims and tortures (Read the book of Job for Christ’s sake) all so that he might promote his power/express his anger/forge his legacy. Spiderfingers is a CRITIQUE on man’s most disturbing creation and no way can you come on a forum like this and troll. I wish Spiderfingers could outlive your idiotic beliefs but I guess your brand of BULLSHIT is older and somehow deserving of more reverence. Don’t you get that people like me PITY people like you? Open your eyes! Oh, do yourself a favour and SPELLCHECK…people might just take your points a little more seriously.

Powerpuffgirl280977 says: @Fowl6789 Why act like such a bully? Why write under the false pretence, that you are anti-religious and are trying to release god fearers from unnecessary bondage? I’m an atheist but I don’t ridicule religious types. What do you gain from statements such as “Wonder how she’s gonna stick it to the Muslims? I can’t wait!” Really, what do you hope to prove? For what it’s worth, I don’t think you’re the only one. Regardless of religious types be they Christian, Hindu, Muslim pushing their faith on others, fighting fire with fire is causes a needless inferno. There’s no justification for my FB page filling with countless pictures that slam other people’s faith. I enjoy the Spiderfingers stories for their characterisation and find the attempts at social commentary interesting but open to mawkish interpretation. You can try to hi-jack the premise for your own agenda but this is the internet – you’re gonna be outed for the bully that you are.

I can’t stand their blinkered view, that if we sing songs in a large building and look joyously up at a wooden carving of a dead philosopher, then suuure, everything’s gonna be just fine. I honestly don’t care what others believe in so long as it doesn’t find its way into controlling conversations. AngelGrace777 is a troll. How can she start a conversation about Spiderfingers being satanic without ignoring the subtext and drive of the story? C’mon Powerpuff, don’t be so na├»ve. Also, chill out, it’s only fiction RLOL!

Powerpuffgirl280977 says: @Fowl6789 I’m sorry to hear your home-life is marred by what you perceive to be religious dogmatism, but that doesn’t excuse you committing to the very popular and anonymous god-bashing that’s going on. Just cos you have the ability to express your point of view from the safety of a desktop-avatar doesn’t mean for a second that you should take social graces lightly. I think that so long as it’s acceptable to verbally cajole/harass/bully someone online then you’ll have less and less people willing to offer their opinions on things. Ironic that this medium opens the floor to all yet those with the loudest of voices are blinded and ignorant of their own menace.

Grasshopperarea52 says: Spiderfingers isn’t evil or good – he is as sensationalist as his priestess wishes him to be. I think that Stephanie Tent pushes buttons to have people read her work. She’s been clever about it by keeping a low public profile but vicariously living through others (that Foley Edwards model guy and his sister were SO hired because they crave the limelight…they do Tent’s promo work without realising) but ultimately she wants people to watch her. She is vacuous, she knows it and paradoxically that is the secret to her charm.

Read up about her and you will find she not only turned down being on Skool Daze (Some shitty reality TV programme in England. she was a teacher at the schol), not only was she a devout Muslim who kept herself to herself but Stephanie Tent has kid with learning problems, so even if she craved the lime light at least she would be doing it for to bring up her kid. I think she has intigrity. She could have released Spiderfingers Hero-Worship as a paperback but is happy to live off Flight of the Martlett (read it the other day, her Bleach to Hero-Worships Nevermind). BTW Nirvana are awesome and Kurt Cobain will never die!

ConsumerOmniProducts1987 says: I was doing some research for my thesis on moral decay and being a creative writer I came up with this on the side:

    Night time is just not an easy time is it?
    The novelist has his manuscript, the sun has its eastern destination, the suicide bomber will not be severed from his point of view – terror will always have you, its master.
    Chaos, you hear your pet’s chains as it rattles and clinks in the dead of night. A walk must be taken. Often you have tried to resist but only once have you been successful, for shadow is a part of you. Shadow’s minion eclipses the moral continent that stretches within.
    You hear of a murder, the only one ever to take place in Disneyland and your memory returns. You see the Terrorsmith at work, its chain leashed to your left arm. A stabbing, a jealous lover’s body rendered unrecognisable, this is the language of terror.
    Occultist’s familiar with a map of the inner man speak of Rooenn with hushed tones. Rooenn pronounced as Ruin they say. The Terrorsmith, your pet, you hear its chains in the blackness and you go to it.
    This is another night where you oversee your four legged weapon confiscate the minds of men, women, teenagers, rabid dogs and the like. Gaia sanctions this. Every garden has its system. Try asking a mower how it feels about the grass its cut. Try asking a knife to feel guilty for its existence. That’s a one way conversation. The closest aspect of humanity that this tool has is the face behind the chain – like all twisted visages of pop culture’s most celebrated killers, Rooenn smiles.
    The smile is full with the unmistakable veneer of corruption – vices indulged in and perverted beyond human taste or imagination - they reside along the drooling teeth. We see the weapon grin because this is the only way you and I can process the face of shadow and terror. Remember, Rooenn is a node of evil, to see it completely is a possibility but one that would drive you insane. Such are your minds choices when in the presence of the dark weapon.
    Once again, Gaia allows this.  
    From her perspective, Rooenn is neither an innocent nor a guilty party – the Necrosphere’s purest offspring relies on you for the moral fallout.

You guys like?!? Lemme know! BTW the Algebra killing in Disneyland was the start point for my research, which I really should get back to lol! Thanks for reading!

A good story is a good story! If you reckon it’s going out of its way to offend your religion then why give it any thought? You’ll only be coming across as defensive about something that cannot hurt you. Consider the intricate and complex history of your chosen god – can he/she/it really be harmed by comments on FB and Twitter? Sticks and stones can't break his bones and names will never hurt Him. Stephanie Tent should write a story about it!

TheFixerBoy says: Stephanie Tent takes recognisable tropes and conventions and puts a lot of effort into making them more believable, like when the big reveal of a friend being in fact an enemy. If you haven’t read Forces of Nature then I won’t spoil it for you, but I think creating a history between the villain and the hero makes their interactions so much more enjoyable (Clark and Lex in Smallville, Peter and Norman in the Spiderman movies, Loki and his adopted brother Thor etc)! I think that Spiderfingers is a badguy that only out for himself. If he dies, the god hex falls down and every god that man’s twoisted imagination has birthed will invade and enslave earth! Doesn’t make Spiderfingers a good guy, just makes him our last hope.

BIGBOILIVESON says: This is unrelated but interesting: In that famous story of Adam and Eve and the fall from grace, it was God's tree of knowledge that was the source of the trouble. One might indict God on this point. In being asked to sacrifice himself for mankind's sake, to save us at last from the legacy of Eden's rebellion, Jesus was asked to correct his Father's choice. Superman’s rocket ship held Kryptonian crystals that as alien technology held immense power. In Superman Returns, Lex Luther act of stealing them sets off a chain of events that places earth's people in trouble. Only Superman can save us. Again it falls to the son to correct the mistakes of the father :) :)

Robertpolusonthesecond says: I am no writer, but I read, and I hope that all my reading experiences are enough to help in this vital communication. The frankly disturbing events surrounding Stephanie’s escape from Bellevue have prompted me to act. Don’t ask me what is going on with her, I don’t know. All I know is that what has happened to me is not an isolated event. If ANY of what follows is relevant to your life then please get in contact with me about the meeting I am organising. I strongly believe that whoever set up this web forum did so with the explicit intention that those who follow the real life Spiderfingers would find their way here and share their conversion experiences. You are not alone/dare to believe.

    Before I stepped off the roof, before I was saved, I was the kind of Christian that believed in hearing the voice of god, but I know now that I was deranged – gods voice can only be heard if he’s standing right next to you.
    The doomed romantic in me knew from the start that the girl was trouble. Kathy Kane, she sounded like a superhero alias and in a way she was. In one life she worked at the desk two cubicles away from me and I tell you, the only reason why I hadn’t handed in my resignation was so I could be her confidant at lunch time.
    To like call centre work is a form of mental degradation - to survive it Kathy Kane had another life. Sometimes that other existence would wait for her after work – flowers in its one hand, keys to a huge truck thing in the other. Don’t ask me the make of what her boyfriend drove, I’m not the car understanding type. Suffice to say Kathy Kane, short pink haired and scented with the allure of strawberries, this punk goddess among mere men, she was noticeable. Smart too, and she wasn’t a caller, she was my line manager, never really needing to talk to me unless the subject was work related.
    Then ‘Bill’ left her. Kathy became like me, her singledom allowing her orbit to align with my own. I didn’t know it then, but I’m wiser now. As soon as we got to talking on that walk to the tube I would have said Kathy, you can’t survive through him, you gotta build a life for yourself.
    Of course what I said was, yeah, men are all evil.
    Yeah.
    You would think that her being my boss and on the rebound would have warded me off. No, I was the needy overthinking type that refused to see such complications. Remember, this is me before finding the one true god. This is me as a weakling before life in happy servitude. I think I knew I was being used. I let Kathy Kane happen to me. And when she’d grown tired of the eating-pizza-watching-DVD routine (that I was perfectly happy with), when she had told me that it had been fun but that was all, I found myself thinking of Gemma and Margaret before her. I considered my last birthday and how many women were there as friends, good friends that were never intended to be such. So then, I found myself at the top of my old tower block looking down down down to the concrete below, spying an imaginary x waiting for me. A target I would spray in my mangled bleeding corpse. I think I nearly dived down twice before swigging at the half-empty bottle of vodka. I would break into a song this polish girl had taught me. A great day, accept for the your-not-my-type disclaimer she left me with.
    Mid song my phone blared and there I was eighty feet and a casual step away from deaths embrace, scrabbling in my pocket for the last conversation of my life.
    ‘Hello Peter?’ said the voice of my landlord.
    I cursed myself for not checking the caller I.D.
    ‘Yeah, yeah, hey.’
    ‘Peter, are you coming back soon?’
    I threw my phone over the edge. My last conversation on this planet would not be an old fart asking me about rent and reminding me that I never clean the house.
    ‘There Is no hell!’ I screamed as the taste of blasphemy rinsed sweet around my mouth.
    I see it now as if it were happening again.
    I watch myself, my shaky step over the side.
    There I am, still falling. I plunge and then the arms wrap around me. I’m floating down. I feel a little piss run down my leg and I’m looking to see the wings of the angel that’s caught me.
    It isn’t an angel, not unless angels have green skin and scales, there cherub faces replaced with reptilian snouts and yellowy cat-like eyes. My angel has little puffs of smoke funnelling out of its nostrils and as its claws pincer my body between them, I scream. Even after we land and I’ve fallen into a ball of fear, I’m screaming.
    ‘Hey, chill out? We’re not here to hurt you.’ says a voice above. I open my eyes to see a black girl, standing over me, she’s got short afro hair and she’s so fucking tall, perhaps six foot eight?
    Another voice speaks to me, ‘Get up pal. We’ve gotta talk.’
    A man standing next to the girl, shorter and definitely skinner. He’s wearing a long burgundy trenchcoat, it flaps over his matching Doctor Martins. His hair is a mass-tangle of dreads and afro – a real mess.
    ‘We saved you.’ says the man. He points up at the building from where I decided to end my life and all I keep thinking is, being drunk doesn't create hallucinations. All I manage to say is,
    ‘This is impossible.’
    ‘Do you believe in god?’ he asks.
    ‘I don’t know. Who are you?’
    He smiles (I think) as he replies with a gravely vocal, ‘I am god.’
    ‘You don’t look like god.’
    ‘I get that a lot, her sister unbelieves in me,’ says the man indicating the tall girl to his left, ‘Her last conclusion is that I’m some alien with a mental problem. I can’t quite disprove her, Vicky’s smart that way. Do you think I’m an alien?’
    Without thinking I shake my head saying, ‘I don’t believe in aliens.’
    ‘What do you believe in?’
    ‘That god would have caught me, told me off for jumping…that he would have let the devil take me to hell.’
    ‘Man made god and their Hell’s.’
    And we all just wait there, as if it’s someone’s line and they’ve forgotten it.
    ‘Who are you?’ I say sitting up, because standing is a feat that I’m not sure my fearing and drunken body can achieve.
    ‘This is Lilith, I am Spiderfingers. You?’
    ‘Peter.’
    ‘You Peter are a believer. Look at my hair and know that it is I who have saved you.’
    His hair billows smoke and fire and lights that ought not to burn there. His fire-hair smokes up into the night and I know how to describe the face of god to anyone that might ask.
    Angular eyebrows, coffee skin – god is called Spiderfingers and he wears a Superman T-shirt and yellow belt.
    ‘Is everything in the bible a lie?’ I ask him.
    He is smiling, a victory smile as he replies with, ‘It is for you. That’s why I’m here. You’re dinner.’
    ‘I don’t – I don’t understand?’ I say looking to Lilith for some clear speak but she is looking away a little uninterested, like this is routine.
    ‘I am like any other god in that I need to survive. My disciples – I’ve called them Discordians – they need to witness my power to gather their own. Sometimes, like tonight, they will do my bidding and harvest believers on my behalf. Tonight your life changes. Tonight you live to sustain me – the one true god.’
    ‘You love saying it like that don’t you?’ says Lilith who’s leaning against a tree. Not a tree, the tree has green scales for bark. The tree is a…
    Spiderfingers flicks her a look I can’t describe. Anger? Confusion? Then he utters, ‘You will choose a room in your house to empty out completely and you’ll take these.’ He hands me three crayons. Red. Yellow. Blue.
    ‘Go home and draw upon the walls of your empty room. Draw the events that led up to tonight’s conversion. Draw what made you fall. Draw the fall itself and every night you’re gonna add to the drawing to make it more real O.K?’
    ‘I can’t draw.’
    ‘Neither could the caveman but we still line up in museums to see what he witnessed right? Don’t stop believing in me Peter, the safety of the world rests on my shoulders, there’re are others.’
    I wanted to ask him more but they had hoped onto the back of the dragon. Lilith’s hands were placed on her forehead whilst Spiderfingers’ steadied her, riding behind.
    I struggled home feeling odd that I didn’t have something as necessary as a phone but that in a way I’d swapped it for knowledge of a god. Or maybe he was an insane alien? I wasn’t sure of anything but my name as the drink continued to ruin my thoughts. The bed I eventually crashed down into felt understanding, its cushioning effect had been a surrogate mothers hug for so long and I had been thinking about its maternity ever since I had crossed on to my side of the street. Home, my favourite word. A place where I convinced myself that my rescue and the subsequent conversation with god and his angel was but a dream.
***
    After a couple of weeks, my psychiatrist had convinced me that I no longer needed her, that in a few months the medication would have done its job (or, come to think of it - her job). At work I didn’t avoid Kathy, I accepted that I was once a victim who had given into projecting the role of the saviour onto the women in my life. I stayed on their after she left, just bit longer before completing a course in art, something I used to be good at when I was young. My mother used to say so anyway. I saw certain friendships for what they were and in return, they didn’t try very hard to stay in contact with me either. Life wasn’t great but it was more real.
    One evening in front of the TV I fell asleep watching a programme on wildlife. I learned how the Kauai wolf spider would be forced to live off its young during certain seasons. My eyes fell as I told myself I wasn’t sleepy, the voiceover stating something about evolutionary pressure, eggs and predators. Survival on One was a worthy waste of time but I was so tired,
    ‘You didn’t build me my shrine.’
    My eyes ripped wide open. I spun around to find Spiderfingers behind me. He was dishevelled. The room stank of mouldy fruit and urine.
    ‘Seems I have to remind you that I exist.’
    ‘Who are you?’, I said meaning it, ‘What do you want?’
    ‘Belief. You can’t let me go hungry.’
    From behind him slunk out a man on all fours. The man had a bike chain, heavy and clanking wrapped around his face. The man was naked and his skin looked greyish blue,
    ‘We will watch you create the shrine. Empty your room.’
    I leapt up to run to the door but the naked man was already there, he was attached to the ceiling like a spider. He was grinning.
    ‘Rooenn is my pet and I don’t know if I control him or if he controls me. He is hungry too, but you don’t’ want to know what he eats. Now, clear. Out. Your. Room.’
    I nodded like a naughty child and began taking books and chairs and clothes and Hi-Fi equipment out of my room. Spiderfingers’ hair began to grow in size and shape. It began to snap and crackle, like a bonfire.
    ‘Good, very good. Now draw.’
    I began, pictures of my mum dying from cancer, pictures of my dad shouting at me for playing music too loud. I drew Gemma, Margaret, Kathy so many women, all leaving me. I used my artistic flair for my stepping off of the tower block and the dragon that caught me, oh, it looked superb. I began to smile with inner joy as I drew Lilith and Spiderfingers talking to me. I rendered all of this history on my walls, my ceiling, the wooden floor boards. I couldn’t remember where I had clutched the crayons from or why I had bothered to save them, all that mattered was the mapping out of my own personal religion. When I was done, I turned to Spiderfingers but he looked down, sad.
    ‘That’s all off, so cold, so infested with cynicism. I can’t eat that.’
    I shook my head not understanding how the hours of work I’d committed myself to could be a waste of time.
    ‘It seems my pet will feast on you.’ said Spiderfingers as the naked man moved toward me, pools of black fire spilling up and out of the places his hands and feet walked.
    ‘I did what you said! Why?’
    ‘What do you believe in?’ asked Spiderfingers.
    I wasn’t sure what he wanted, but I knew if I didn’t do something Rooenn would kill me. I told him the truth.
    ‘I don’t know!’
    ‘You don’t know what you believe in? Should I give you more?’
    I understood. In a fraction of a second, I got what Spiderfingers wanted from me. He needed something fresh, that was why he’d returned.
    ‘I believe in you!’ I said with the crayon trembling in my hand, ‘I believe in you!’
     I began drawing Spiderfingers holding his pet by the chain. I drew it all over the mosaic of before, that sycophantic display of idiocy that had no use for anyone, not until now. Spiderfingers’ return had re-qualified his first appearance as spiritual but the true power behind my conversion was this fear he’d given me. I sleep in the living room now, and I regularly touch up the shrine - painted over it twice to start over. I'm doing everything I can to make my experience vivid and true. Does any of this sound familiar? I hope you've been able to folow all this, as I said, I'm not a writer. 
    If you are a convert, please, get in touch. Tell me of your own journey, tell me of the details of your own mosaic, how you add to it daily. You can comment here or if you like, send me an email? Let’s work together to understand god.

KicktheMillarboy says: He sat me down. My whole family and I after the truck went over were just in a complete state of shock, mostly because of Spiderfingers and his group saving us. I pay the bills, my taxes and my children’s school fees by writing fantastical characters like him – having him turn up to stop us from skidding off a bridge made no sense at all. He sat me down and told me, told us all to create a big drawing of what happened in our house so, we cleared out the shed. Made it into a shrine. He told us our belief in him would power him and his disciples. He called them Discordians. We work on the image of our car going over the bridge every spare chance we get. I don’t care if people think I’m nuts cos there is a god - he wears red yellow and blue.

GentelemanjimRoony says: I met him twice.  the first time he was not how he is now. He wasn’t wearing the Superman clothes. He would pass for normal. We were in uni then and his name was John-something-else, he wasn’t using Clay let alone Spiderfingers. The second time was a few years later, when he dragged me out of my room and smashed up my works. Used his heel to destroy my syringes…flushed all my gear down the toilet. Needless to say I was pissed. This is where rich boy has ended up – he’d say – what a fall from grace rich boy, lucky I’m god now. Then, the fucker drags me down a long tunnel underground. Tells me we’re going to a mountain in the Himalayas no less. I’m praying to gods I never bother to study as he pulls me along rambling about writers and artists being the ones to start with. Some madness about them being best for social influence. I don’t know how long he left me in the dark place. The walls were cold and I don’t know why I didn’t starve to death, but I wanted to. He came in drunk one night – a real mess. Was worried that the conversions were a waste of time. That he’s need millions to feed upon Earth-wise.
When he let me out the world had moved on a decade, people talking to themselves were everywhere, then I noticed the ear pieces. Lots of conversations about apps and new phones.
If he really was god why didn’t he do the right thing and kill my parents? He’s an evil creature. I went back to shooting up the first chance I got.

THE SUNDAYS SPENT IN CHURCH WOULD FILL MY SOUL WITH SUCH JOY, AN IRREPRESSIBLE BLISS THAT I HONETLY THOUGHT I COULD HEAR THE VOICE OF GOD. I KNOW NOW THAT T - LIKE YOURSELF PETER - HAD A SORT OF MENTAL ILLNESS. THERE WAS NO VOICE, FOR THERE IS NO HEAVEN AND THE HELL I HAD SPENT A LIFETIME FEARING WASN'T REAL EITHER. @DAXISNIX WE HAVE A CLEVER IDOL HERE. NO HOLY BOOK TO BE MISINTERPRETED BY GENERATIONS TO COME, NO COMMANDMENSTS THAT MIGHT STICK TO CLOSELY TO THE PRIMITIVE CULTURE THEY WERE BIRTHED WITHIN. WE HAVE SEEN HIM AND HE HAS SAVED US...WE JUST HAVE TO KEEP BELIEIVNG IN HIM.

Mrbigphat2ndchance says: My name is Will Dunn and I used to be homeless and poor. Then a black guy in a Superman get-up walked past me and gave me and handed me a winning lottery ticket. This was about a decade ago. I won’t go into the details – that’s my privilege – but he showed up again about a year ago. He said he was passing by and wanted to see how I was. He had a school girl with him who said she was the one who found my ticket and that I should look into Superman’s origins. So this black guy said they had to see a troll about an egg and took her by the hand and left. I didn’t really think about researching Superman’s history until a little later when I was online. I found this: http://superman.wikia.com/wiki/Superman_(William_Dunn)
And I also found this:
My name is William Bilson Dunn and I don't know what to believe in any more.

BIGBOILIVESON says: Belief, true belief, takes a long time to ingest into a populace. To make use of all the conversions he had orchestrated Spiderfingers needed to invest in an event that would bring us all together. If I were him I’d create an avatar – Stephanie Tent. Her stories would signal to all of us that his time had come.
