You've never led the most pleasant of lives, but this certainly takes first place on the list of crappy life experiences. After a horrible accident that was in no way your fault, you find yourself passed out in a hospital bed. You cannot see or feel anything. In fact, you cannot move at all. The doctors are convinced that you're not long for this world, and the nurses don't seem to mind talking about it since their comatose patient obviously cannot hear them. Except that isn't true. You can hear everything.
This is an entry for Killa's Spring Thing Contest. Had some publishing issues, but I got it up the second I could. As much as I wanted to publish my original entry, I couldn't be happy with myself if I put out a half-finished product. (It should be coming out within the next month or so if anyone actually cares.) Thanks you so much to Steve for all of his support and various death threats, and to Mayana for her encouragement during this competition.
Note: This is my first published storygame, so any feedback and criticism would be very much appreciated.
The Draconic creatures once ruled the realm with an iron claw, gods among men. The brutal and animalistic Wyverns hunted as they pleased, the honored and fierce Lizardmen spread across the lands and growing to the billions, the Dragonborn built civilizations of incredible size and discovered magic and technology beyond man's wildest dreams, with the true Dragons lived as gods turned to flesh and bone.
You are none of these powerful creatures. You are a Kobold.
Your species is one of servants, of pawns, of grunts, of disposable warriors that live and die according the will of your dragon masters, lacking the strength, the speed, the magic, the power or even the size bestowed by the Gods to the rest of the Draconic races, surviving only by wits and numbers.
Now, as the dying embers of the once-great draconic races, your tribe is facing extinction at the hands of the young races. You won't let the Draconic flame be snuffed out with you. No, you shall ensure that the world witnesses the flames of your glory, flames that only your kind can create.
You will prove you are truly Draconic.
A beginner's guide to editing your own work.

Why pick the worst game in the Fable series?

Nah, he knows better than to try anything physical. I may be an emotional waffle, but if he tried to hit/rape me he knows full well I'd chop off his genitals and feed them to him. (Also it amuses me that y'all think I sleep.)

I don't know nearly enough about emo bands to be able to parody "My Immortal". (RIP Raven)

I'm probably a bit easier on the grading than most people.

1- Complete trash, needs to be deleted.
2- They obviously put in a little effort, but it still didn't meet site standards.
3- It's readable and good enough to stick around, but that's about it.
4- A good story. Not the best by far, but a decent read.
5- Better than decent. Anyone intrested in the genre should definitely give it a look.
6- Amazing! Maybe not a story of epic proportions, but better than most by far.
7- I'd pay money to play this. Maybe like 99 cents, but still.
8- Best thing I've read in my life! (Or Endmaster happened to write it)
Basically 4-5 is decent, anything above 5 falls in between good and godlike.

It's short, but the writing's pretty decent. I don't know why the kid would be afraid to ask, honestly. If it's something he sees every day, most kids would mimic that anyway rather than ask permission. As someone who grew up around abuse and was constantly told to stay silent and to maintain a family image I can see where that concept comes from, disgusting as it is.

Telling of what? You say your life is awesome all the time. Since your post was essentially saying I was bored with the world, I see nothing strange about pointing out that I enjoy my life. Therefore your implication that I'm bored with it isn't the case. I wasn't even bored with the forums in that scenario. I checked my phone and nothing new had happened in the past 24 hours. I said "Oh, nothing's happening on the forums," and went about my day. How Ford interpreted this as me "always complaining" is beyond me.

I didn't say the world was boring. I said "nothing is happening on the forums." Ford overheard that and decided to make this thread. Personally, I find the world to be a constant source of energy and entertainment. My life is great.
Crazy people be CRAZY!!!

Oh of course! If you're unattractive or someone just doesn't like you for any reason, it should be illegal to reject you! That makes perfect sense.
