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.

Would you be less disgusted had they been little boys?

A bit radical? It defeats the entire purpose of writing a story.

Holdover officials have been leaking anything and everything. Just wish they'd catch a few for once and try them for treason. No reason to leak classified info to the press, especially stuff like this.

The American West had a government. It's enforcers were just spread thin over a vast amount of land. Marshals and sheriffs deputized civilians to assist. And bounty hunters had special legal protections when attempting to apprehend wanted criminals, who - surprisingly! - broke at least one codified law. If you want anarchy, you better stretch back to tribal civilization to get even close.

When you're willingly blowing yourself up for a "cause" that the heads of the organization aren't willing to do in turn, then yeah, you're a brainwashed moron. Random peon scrub #129 blows himself up. Level: Moron Peon Bin Laden dies via Navy SEAL bullet. Level: Fat Cat

I'm always impressed with how easily these idiots are brainwashed. If death in Jihad via blowing oneself and small children up is the greatest honor, why doesn't the entire Islamic State high command go explode? Nothing more than religion as a political tool to amass sacrificial lambs. Of course, anyone that pinpoints kids as a pseudo war target is beyond any shred of humanity regardless of the motivation or stupidity. Deserves 72 separate strains of ass cancer in hell.

Make it go to the desktop version of the site. Much easier.

I just want wasn't interested enough to care about a full blown backstory in the narrative, taking up multiple chapters. He had me just onboard enough to stay with the present, but when he lost that momentum, I was done. The main character struck me as a prototypical brooding prince Mary Sue.

Prince of Thorns on 5/17/2017 12:12:22 PM
I got about 50 pages in and stoped. I wasn't a huge fan of the narrative style. There were jumps back in time that I didn't care about, and the main character wasn't very interesting to me.
