I'm Chris. On the 12th of November, I left for Job Corps. I won't have much time to spend on the internet for a while, and I'll be focusing on getting my education and career training. Sadly, this is about where we part ways. This place has always been my internet home and I'm going to miss it a lot. I've been here for five years, almost six now. I've gone from a dumb eleven year old kid who mainly shitposted and roleplayed (RIP forum games) to one of the most competent writers on the site. It's always been a dream of mine to get a featured story, and now I have two, one in the coveted fantasy category. Never thought I'd see the day. It's gonna be hard being away from here for so long. I love this place more than you could ever know, and I'm passionate about all the writing I've done on here. I want to say thanks to all of you for being here and making this site great. For those who've been around long enough, thanks for putting up with my dumbass for five years and not trying to drive me out when you had the chance. To any noobs who stumble across my profile, know that even if you bombed your first story all you have to do is keep trying. If you have enough passion for writing, and keep practicing as much as you can, then someday you'll be able to make it to the top. After all, that's what I did, and I'd say it turned out pretty well. Well, this is about where I go. So until that day when we meet again: see you, space cowboy. Bang. SIKE! I get to bring my laptop to Job Corps so I'll be sticking around, or at least popping in every once in a while. Don't expect anymore stories for the next year and a half to two years (11/12/19, so until about April to November of 2021). Well, maybe the occasional small one.

Featured Story Dark Nights

The Question is back at it again in this sequel to Hard Night!

Gotham City was home to a myriad of vigilantes, and, in your personal opinion, the Huntress was the most interesting of them. So when you hear she's in trouble, of course you decide to give her a helping hand... Things escalate from there.

Second in the Questionable Tales series, a series of fanfiction storygames starring the Question. Featuring the Huntress as a guest star, Batman and the Penguin in cameos, and mentions of other Batman related characters.

Rated for violence, language, and sexual content. I make no claims of quality.

The Question, Huntress, the Batfamily, and all of Batman's villains are copyright DC Comics.

NOTE: An entry into EndMaster's 2018 unofficial romance contest.

Special Thanks to:

Tim36D - Playtesting, proofreading.
The Folks in the Villain Lair - Motivating me to write the story. Even if I didn't make it to 15k in the end.

EDIT 3/14/18: Fixed typos. Completely revamped Penguin's confrontation pages. Removed 'End of *chapter name*, start *chapter name*' links; they're just 'continue' links now. Minor additions to story, including a new page.

EDIT 3/26/18: Fixed some small mistakes that I noticed.

EDIT 4/26/18: Fixed background on title page, due to my usual image hosting site going down.

Dusty Fist

Can you get a good drink while fending off raiders?

A young martial artist visits a post-apocalyptic town in search of a drink. What happens next is up to you in this classic style CYOA inspired by the cult classic God Hand.

Special Thanks To:
Cricket - For beta reading.

Author's Notes: This is mostly just a little something I wrote for my own amusement and isn't meant to be taken seriously at all. It's written in the Time Cave format, which means that every choice leads you down a unique path instead of all that rebranching and stuff that modern interactive fiction tends to use.

With that said, leave all your common sense at the door, because it's about to get weird.

Dusty Fist 2: Electric Boogaloo

A young martial artist goes on another hilarious romp through post-apocalyptic America.

My entry for Mizal's 2019 Lone Hero Contest.

Authors Notes: This is a sequel to Dusty Fist. You don't actually need to have read the original in order to enjoy this one, as that was more of an elaborate shitpost while this... Is also an elaborate shitpost.

Hard Night

Just a regular night.

In this game, you play as the Question, Hub City's faceless protector. One night, what appears to be a normal drug bust goes south fast, and you find yourself with only two hours to live, an antidote to find, and a gang to topple.

Looks like it's just a normal night in Hub City.

First in the Questionable Tales series, a series of fanfiction games starring the Question. There's four endings not counting deaths: one bad, one bittersweet, one good, and one true ending. See if you can find them all.

The Question is copyright DC Comics. So yeah, don't sue me.

Author's Note: This game is really rough around the edges. I decided to give it a quick run through on October 4th, 2019 (over a year and a half after the original publication on February 2nd, 2018), in order to fix some minor bugs and add a "cheat code" for the infamously obtuse antidote puzzle. Hopefully, there are no more problems with the scripting and the like.

... And I ended up giving it another edit on October 8th, 2019 because I noticed another bug when replaying it. Not a major one, but still. I really didn't have my link restrictions in order at all.

Silent Night

A very questionable Christmas special.

It's Christmas in Hub City. One might expect that even criminals would take the night off, but you've learned the hard way that crime doesn't sleep. While the rest of the city is tucked into their homes in the company of loved ones, you're on the hunt in a silent city, making sure that things stay that way.

The Question is copyright DC comics. So yeah, don't sue me.

Author's Notes: Did I say I was definitely not going to write a Question fanfiction for this contest? Because what I meant was I didn't mean to but I had to squeeze something out before the contest's end. And with Christmas so fast approaching, what better than a Christmas special, eh?


Noir story in a cyberpunk dystopia. Four types of endings: deaths, bad endings, good endings, and one perfect ending. See if you can find them all, it shouldn't be too hard. Endings are tracked using the score variable: zero means death, one means bad, two means good, three means perfect.

Special thanks to:
Tim36D - For listening to me ramble on about the idea, making suggestions, and writing a few pages.
ISentinelPenguinI - For playtesting.

Finally, if you notice any bugs, please PM me and I'll get to work on them as soon as I can (though I do believe they've all been worked out, can never be too sure).

UPDATE 6/20/2018: Replaced the link for the music due to the video being pulled from YouTube.
UPDATE 2/3/2019: Minor edits, original link for music is back up so I changed it back. Added the Anti-Hero tag.

Featured Story When The Music's Over
I hear a very gentle sound... Once you were the bravest hero in the land. Then, the greatest noble. Now, a washed up drunkard past his prime. But when the king asks for you to turn the tide of a war, will you accept, or cast his offer aside to walk your own path? Author's Notes: I originally intended for every single choice to branch out into a unique path, but to get this out I had to cut some of my plans short. There is minor rebranching here and there along with a few duplicate pages that have minor changes depending on how you reached those pages. On top of that, the path for accepting the king's offer is much more bare bones than I wanted it to be and is only about a third of the rest of the game's size (10k to the rest of the game's 30k). Someday, I hope to return to this story and make it the epic it deserves to be. For now, however, the game is finished. The SCORE variable doesn't indicate how good you did. It's just a way to keep track of what ending the reader got. If you play the game, please give a comment. I'd love to hear your thoughts. This game includes a writing prompt, asking the reader to continue the ending they received. It can be found here. Special Thanks: Tim36D - For being my long-suffering best friend and listening to me ramble on about this story. Thanks man. Mizal - For constantly busting my ass to get this storygame done. Boom, now it is. Shadowdrake27 - For proofreading the story. Without him, there would be many typos and grammar errors. The CYS Discord - For being there to let me ramble on about my story on the occasions that Tim wasn't. The entire CYS community - For putting up with me for 5 years now. Stay classy, you omnidirectional vitriol spewers.

CYS: The only site in the world where a thread about Bolivia can get derailed so hard it becomes a debate about elf thiccness.

Oh, wait, this is where I'm supposed to post this. Yes it's a Nitro thing, because animated and presumably from another server.

Would be cool to see, I enjoyed what you wrote. Glad you're enjoying the game too.

Prompt: When The Music's Over on 11/11/2019 4:00:27 PM
Huh, didn't figure people would take this ending in that specific direction. Very nice.

Prompt: When The Music's Over on 11/10/2019 6:57:05 PM
Because it was suggested to me, and I'm a dirty idea thief, I decided to steal Gower's idea for Sixteen Words where I let my readers write the ending for me! If you've read my story When The Music's Over, you should know that a lot of the endings are a bit abrupt, finishing after you achieve some certain goal. Now I want you, dear readers, to detail what happens after one of those endings, whether that be immediately after, a few short days later, or even many years later. Be sure to include the page title so that we know what ending you're continuing off of.

Here's my entry: When The Music's Over.

Chris Does Fantasy on 11/8/2019 12:07:19 PM
Unpublished to fix these. Will edit when it's back up.
E: Fixed. Also, that thing about the bottles of wine was you misreading (it said one of the bottles of wine, implying Kit only packed one and left the others out), but it was still rather clunky so I fixed it. Also fixed a continuity error (if you take the woods path where Iris reveals she knows Kishak, Kit still asks Miller and Iris if either know Kishak) and some other things I noticed.

Help & Info Page Is A Little Broke on 11/8/2019 8:18:13 AM
Nothing that bad, but I noticed that Gower's latest article, Culumative Sentences, Part 1, is at the top of the page where the Advanced Editor section is rather than in the Storywriting section where it should be. Also, the Advanced Editor header is missing.

Chris Does Fantasy on 11/8/2019 8:15:15 AM
It's all good, man. People just get busy sometimes. And sure, if you want. This isn't a contest entry so I can easily unpublish and republish it without consequence.
