"That's why I'm a Keeper. I keep things that people need. That's why they call us keepers."
TheyCallUsKeepers/Let us Live/Let Us Keep Living is the blog of Jeff ("Just Jeff"), a teenager who decides to chronicle events pertaining to The Slender Man Mythos. Naturally, it goes horribly wrong. Unlike other blogs, Jeff's decline doesn't come after a slow descent into madness, but instead after he decides to give himself over to the Slender Man to be with Nessa.
And that's when the blog gets interesting.
This blog provides examples of:
- Battle Couple: Most recently, Jeff and Cheska.

- Mood Whiplash: The main character is almost a Pollyanna in his attempts to stay cheerful.
- Most Common Superpower: Cheska. Cheska, Cheska, Cheska.
- Nerds Are Sexy: Jeff can be interpreted as this.
