Just here for some fun. Also here for wasting my time.

So I noticed some of you like to quote some kinda poetry or slogan or inspirational phrase here, so, here is mine:

 

 

 

 

 

There are blows in life, so powerful…I don't know!
Blows as from the hatred of God; as if, facing them,
the undertow of everything suffered
welled up in the soul…I don't know!

They are few; but they are…. They open dark trenches
in the fiercest face and in the strongest back.
Perhaps they are the colts of barbaric Attilas;
or the black heralds sent to us by Death.

They are the deep falls of the Christs of the soul,
of some adored faith blasphemed by Destiny.
Those bloodstained blows are the crackling of
bread burning up at the oven door.

And man…. Poor…poor! He turns his eyes, as
when a slap on the shoulder summons us;
turns his crazed eyes, and everything lived
wells up, like a pool of guilt, in his look.

There are blows in life, so powerful…I don't know!

Journey to Rhye
unpublished

You are a winged man. Having appeared one day out of nowhere, in the middle of the desert, you can't remember anything from your past, except the haunting memory of a faraway land, where green runs wild and sky and sea are blue as one. Journey through a fallen paradise as you search for clues on who you are, what do your visions mean and why did that happen to you. Journey... to Rhye.

Well, I guess it would be a story where the protagonists have to survive with limited resources, where trying to get more (going outside) would be more dangerous, yet necessary, each time because of the constant evolution of birds, so they have to figure out how to balance their needs and how to satisfy them (basically, survival drama or survival against strange circumstances as you said). I believe the birds' sudden changes would remain a mystery that the protagonists try to explain themselves without really knowing which theory is right (more drama and paranoia). Maybe a bit of humor and satiry would be intended, obvious in the whole concept being super intelligent birds causing ruckus, but not the centerpoint.

I have an idea for a story, though it might not necessarily be a storygame. Basically, pigeons and other similar birds have started appearing in large quantities throughout the city, even though it's winter, and have become a serious health risk because of how often they crash with moving vehicles, people, and things like satellite dishes and electric towers (remember, these are tons worth of aviary fiends), and their feces (due to their sheer numbers) are pretty much anywhere outside. So a low-paid guy is pretty frustrated, because local authorities have deemed that going outside is dangerous and so his workplace stays closed, leaving him without pay for a few days (I could really do with some alternatives to this). He stays inside with low resources, trapped with a few roommates, as the birds outside start becoming more aggressive, and growing in species (originally there were only pigeons, now there would also be falcons and hawks or something like that). Eventually, they need to get outside and realize how terrible the situation is.

Outside of that, I don't have many ideas. The birds in winter mean that they are evolving and adapting to harsher enviroments, and they would be kinda like rats, vermin that gradually goes from a nuisance to an actual danger, they would gradually start hitting windows and doors trying to get in, then they'd become smarter and start going for holes or specific weakpoints in the house and leaving their droppings in certain places where the protagonist would most likely breath them. The premise would follow the protagonist putting up with the situation, and how he and his roommates react, some growing more paranoid, another one getting ill because of going outside repeatedly despite the birds (bird dropping dry up, turn to dust and cause illnesses). I know it sounds absurd, and that is part of what I'm aiming for. I'd like to hear what you have to say about that concept, and how could I better the original concept.

I can make sushi, though not much else. I guess my parents taught me, and I started when I was 8 or so.

Not with your new president there isn't (I think I understand his policies now)

Don't worry, trust the power of NATURAL SELECTION!!!

Actually, tell him that there is a web service called scatxxx or something, that hooks people up online no matter the age, seems like the kind of idiot who would fall for that.

The avatar is plain painful and cringy to watch.

Could you tell us about your theme and what you talked about? Seems interesting.

How many rounds are there? Also, just try to get a good start and keep it up, it's like combos in videogames: focus at first and the rest will flow naturally (or not, I'm not that good with advice).
