HolyFrax, The Wordsmith
Hello all! My name is Ryan, and I am a fairly new member to this website. I've been writing recreationally ever since elementary school, and there's no end in sight for me!
Any questions, comments, criticisms, you name it, let me know! I'm happy to help and receive in any way I can.
P.S. Please ignore the possessed ginger baby to your left. Thank you.
"There's no such thing as a weird person, some people just require more understanding than others."
A lighthearted story of two people who can't seem to shake free of each other's influence, no matter how old they get. Simply, a romance...progressive, to say the least.
I know that this story is a bit of a romantic cheeseball, but bear with me. It's my first romance. ;)
NOTE: This is my first story on this site. It is a short story, while I work on a much longer one (currently WIP). Please feel free to comment, message, criticize, compliment, whatever! I welcome the feedback. :)
America - a nation divided by slavery. As tensions rise between the Northern and Southern states, the young country struggles to maintain civility, even within its own borders.
You switch between playing as President Abraham Lincoln and General Ulysses S. Grant, making decisions both on and off the battlefield that will decide the future of a nation. Will you make history, or change it?
This is based off of the bloodiest and most violent war in American history. Please, if you are squeamish and easily frightened/offended, I would not recommend playing this storygame.
Note: This is one of my first storygames, so I absolutely welcome any criticisms, comments, suggestions, compliments, or any type of feedback that you are willing to give. I truly do take each and every one of your comments seriously, so any feedback is greatly appreciated!

Anti-demon spray = Anti-shit spray?
Are you calling a small, red-headed child shit? You should be ashamed of yourself. Forget about the part that I want to murder every human being on the planet, but you just insulted a small child. For shame.

Yes, yes, I am a prodigy. But I forgot to mention that I am also possessed by demons. Just look at my face. I'm clearly getting ready to murder everyone within a biting distance
So yeah, I am a genius, but I highly suggest you stay at least 25 feet away from me at all times. KThanks <3

Yes. I am most certainly a two year old ginger male. With a very extensive vocabulary, mind you.

I'll take a coffee, or, as us New Englanders say, CAWfee. With cream, if you please, Miss Hatters.
Miss Hatters....that sounds incredibly British for some reason...

I feel...like I'm missing something, here. What I got from this post was cocktails, strip clubs, underage girls, and penguins.
I think this place is proving to be quite entertaining...

Mmm...'fraid not. I've done a couple of other forum posts, but none where I've introduced myself properly (until now, that is).

Hey everyone! I've already been on this site for about a week now, but I realized I haven't really introduced myself. My name is Ryan (but you don't have to remember that) and I'm a college senior - Journalism major. I love to write, both creatively and objectively, and this website is a great place to hone my skills, I've found. I've been playing through a bunch of random storygames and leaving comments on as many as I could.
Also, I have two storygames posted, so feel free to check them out and give some feedback!
I hope to get to know you all better in the future!
Real-life experiences? on 6/18/2014 3:42:46 PM
Right, I understand that, but do you feel limited when it comes to creativity? For example, are you at all hesitant to add details that may make the story more exciting, but may also blur the lines between 'real-life experience' and 'fiction' a bit? Sorry if I'm coming across as a bit unintelligible, I'm just trying to figure this out in my mind as I type.
Real-life experiences? on 6/18/2014 3:34:13 PM
I'm curious to know who here has written a storygame (or just a story in general) based on your own life experiences. I've come across a few in the short time I've been on this site thus far, and they seemed pretty well written, but that could be because of a number of things.
I suppose what I'm trying to ask is this: for those of you that have written something based on a real-life experience, was it easier or harder than writing something, say, fictional or historical? I understand that there are probably quite a few factors involved, such as what the experience is, and depending how sensitive you are to the subject, it may make it harder to write.
But in general, which do you find more rewarding? (I guess that makes this thread two questions.) Any feedback you can give would be appreciated!
