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.


Wild Billy
Warning: Not suitable for children.



Written over the course of about three days prior to the extension, as a late decision to enter EndMaster's Depraved Love Contest. The extension was squandered trying to write something more serious, but that story deserves a more honorable effort than Billy.

Billy always had a wild side, even as a tyke.

Another story where you don't really win or lose. You just have a more or less pleasant existence.

It's kind of amusing how these people miss the point. People aren't making fun of the kid, not yet anyway - that's what grade school is for. They're making fun of the mom for giving him a ridiculous name. Of course, observing that would mean forfeiting the "You mocked a baby!" card.

What about ... Ok ^_^

Oh, there’s the woman who threw a fit and cancelled her baby shower or baby name reveal or whatever nonsense because her friends and family said the name she picked for the baby was incredibly stupid. Squire Sebastian Senator Now, if you’re a sane person like me, you probably assumed that was the kid’s full name. Wrong. That’s just his first name. And the woman dictated that her unborn child could not have a nickname and must be referred to as Squire Sebastian Senator in full. How does one come up with such an absurd name? Well, because they come from an esteemed line of squires and senators of course. The boy will grow up to be strong, regal, wealthy and powerful! This name will command respect!

Plot spin: he really just wants revenge for the world’s most awkward birds and bees talk when he was a teen.

If you can make metaphors that amusing, you can win a contest and ruin Mizal's day. Or I guess that's a simile. But that's a stupid name, so let's call it a metaphor.

I mean, Egypt would have still been angry, but I'm sure they would have been okay with that end result.

Danish couple climbed to the top of the Great Pyramid of Giza with a photographer at sunset or after dark and had him record the woman start to strip, facing away from the camera, and then a still image of the couple behaving like wild animals on top of the pyramid. Photographer proceeded to upload the video to his YouTube channel. Egypt was not happy. For their sake, hopefully the Danes and the photographer were smart enough to leave the country first. If you go looking for the video - who are we kidding, we all know you will - the photographer took it down, but newser has it. While I guess the video is disrespectful - aside from showing the commission of a crime - it's really incredibly dumb.

Write a little bit every day. Even if it's just a sentence. You build a house one brick at a time.

Can't talk about eugenics without mentioning 1997's Gattaca. Being able to enhance vision (seeing as we're becoming a race of terrestrial Falmer) and prevent genetic diseases would be a pretty great thing for humanity. Of course we couldn't let someone like End in charge of the program. He'd create an army of super-mutants and genetically enhanced dwarfs.
