Hello all! I'm a student with a love for everything creative (and also working myself to death). Fun fact: I've been a part of all of Shakespeare's plays except Coriolanus. Feel free to PM me to talk about anything! :D

Some quotes, because why not?

"Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light." - Helen Keller

"It is a curious thought, but it is only when you see people looking ridiculous that you realize how much you like them." - Agatha Christie

"Sticks and stones could break my bones, but anything you say will only fuel my lungs." - "Sarcasm" by Get Scared

"Indeed," she murmured, "that was the most interesting cup of chocolate I have ever had, sitting up eight thousand feet over the middle of the Pacific Ocean quite alone." - Amelia Earhart

"What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make." - Jane Goodall

 

And yes, I am quite aware that my current description is just a big list. Maybe I'll fix that someday... maybe. XD Just fixed it, more or less. Used to be a lot worse.

Currently working on Death of a Harlequin, a rather long storygame in the Mystery/Puzzle category, and on/off on Lies My Sister Told Me, a storygame of the desperate measures taken to reach a satisfying revenge.

Coffee Break

You sit in your cubicle, working away diligently. As you raise your coffee cup to your lips you freeze. You sniff the cup. This is not good. This is not good at all. You slowly open your cup... NO! Your cup falls to the floor. You jump out of your chair. You are out of coffee.

Time for a coffee break....

This is my first storygame so I hope you all enjoy it! There are 14 possible endings.


Custody Case

You play as Jack, an honest poet. After experiencing plumbing issues in your house, you discover that your wife Jill has been keeping a child you were unaware you even had hidden from you in your boiler room. A custody case ensues.

Note: This story is based in a fictional country and thus is not meant to replicate an real court system.

This is my entry for the first anniversary of the December Ballad Contest. Enjoy!


Death of a Harlequin
unpublished

The bitterness of a murder permeates the calm airs of Rjonsford. Can you outwit all the riddles and challenges to catch the culprits and bring justice to the kingdom?


Indelible
unpublished

Words can leave scars as deep as any mortal weapon. Scars, like ink, can fade, yet will never quite be forgotten. Much less when you find an unholy object beneath your bed that casts your mind back into its darkest recesses: the world you so desperately had tried to leave behind.

Every decision in this story you unfold sets your past, rather than your future, into the stone that weighs you down.

This story has four main branches that tell separate, distinct tales. Although all four mold the life of the same person, each branch is a stand-alone story and its own, individual nightmare.


Lies My Sister Told Me
unpublished

Dear Diary, 

I can't take these lies anymore. My so-called sister, of all the people I thought I could actually trust, thinks she can bang up my boyfriend behind my back and get away with it. She doesn't know I know her dirty secrets, and she most certainly won't be expecting what I have in plan for her. 

-Reilly Thomas

There we go, it's been published.

You required us to make an update thread in the writing workshop, right? Doesn't that prove I didn't do what the 48 hour prerequisite to publishing aims to avoid? I'm grateful for escaping shame, but if I'd seen the warning I wouldn't have avoided it.


December Contest on 1/8/2018 12:28:54 AM

Yeah... oops.


Contest Entry Submission Thread on 1/8/2018 12:21:33 AM

Yeah... I still look forward to reading all the entries including yours though! :)

Dang it, I just looked it over and it didn't actually let me publish it because it hasn't been two days. *proceeds to burn flowcharts and paper notes and the whole town*

I was worried I wouldn't be able to do this because I just fixed my computer yesterday but I did it!! Custody Case

6) Jack and Jill went up a hill to fetch a pail of water. But when they came down, Jack soon found that he and Jill had a daughter.

Also here's the link to my update forum thing: Jack and Jill

Update! In the past hour I've created my background picture, then modified it to fit all the website size requirements, and then struggled with learning how to script for a bit and finished scripting it. I have the story done, I just need to put all the words in now!
