It's Raining Again
A short story written and scripted in about four hours.

This isn't meant to be a masterpiece or an attempt at being deep. Hopefully it shows that a competent 20 page + story can be written in a weekend's time.

Contest entrants: there's no reason to garner SHAME when entering a contest on the site. Just sit down and write.

Five Endings.

The Cliche Adventures of a Generic Hero

Generic Warning - For immature  mature audiences only.

 

Author's Note

I fired the ridiculous cannon up for this one and took it up to eleven.

This project has lingered untouched in my trunk for nearly a year now. Originally intended to be a short work, it grew big and fat in my notes, and was then later locked away and ignored. Life happens. Anyway, I pulled it from the graveyard and decided to patchwork the dangling ends together. 

 

Play through the heroic or not so heroic adventures of a Cliché knight hero! There are a series of three endings for the knight that I considered canon when I first drafted the story. These unlock the first pages of what were intended to be the other hero paths of wizard, prince and spunky girl (along with some bonus troll material). If enough people enjoy the knight's story, I'd be open to reinvesting in the project and adding one or all of them on as an expansion. Each would play as its own separate story, so don't worry, there is a full and complete story in here.

 

The work, however, is raw - often intentionally so. And while the 'canon' endings unlock the bonus material, there really is no winning and losing. You just do better or worse.

 

That said, this is a fragment of the monster that lies in my notes, coming in at a little over 22k words. I feel comfortable saying there are a few chuckles in here, so I think if it brightens one person's day then it was worth publishing.

 

All comments, both mean and kind, are appreciated. Enjoy.


USA State Capitals - With Zombies!
WARNING: Contains Sexual References

A mildly disturbing result of my attempts to learn my way around the editor. I dabbled a bit in basic html as well. The game functions mostly as a USA State Capitals quiz with a simple combat element. I put in a bit of a backstory, surrounding the quiz, and something mildly disturbing may happen if you die...

While this has little literary merit; hopefully, you may learn something.

Points are sharp and dangerous. This is why blunt impact is the key to zombie survival.

I'm glad we have a certified cat behavioral expert to clear this up for the plebeians.

Your mom dared you to eat a dead mouse you found in the freezer? Be careful who you tell that to...

That sentence and those pigeons just ooze pretentiousness.

I preferred digital for textbooks because I never liked carrying an entire gym around on my back. But for pleasure reading, I vastly prefer hard copies. Local libraries in small towns tend to get a fair amount of activity. But they do evolve with the times. Practically all of them have public computers and printing, which is really nice if you don't have a personal printer and there isn't a copy shop nearby. Apparently as people are pulling the plug on cable, some are turning to libraries to get movie access.

I read that experts say that counting sheep is actually more likely to keep you awake. You should think of something peaceful, like a waterfall.

I don’t know what average is, but eight is recommended generally.

@BerkaZerka I feel violated.
