Figured this was due for an update.  Welcome to my profile!

I'm the Chef, connoisseur of all things horror.  If you don't believe me, feel free to read anything from my wide collection of two storygames below.

Currently working on a sci-fi survival game using the variable and item systems on CYS, hopefully it comes out sometime this year.  If you need any help with writing or site stuff, I shouldn't be your first choice with all the experience on this site, but I'll still help anyway.

Disney+ and Thrust

Play as Tyler, a young man just trying to make sense of dating.  When he gets some advice and a Disney+ account from his friend, Brad, there's only one logical thing to do.

Land of the Setting Sun

My entry for Gower's Contest: Battle in the Ruins of a Dead Civilization

Explore the not-so-uninhabited ruins of Japan, after it had been completely annihilated in World War Two.  Fifty years later, the travel ban is lifted, and James and his crew may be the first people to get a peek into this relic of a country.  However, expect the unexpected, for James and his crew are not the only residents of the Land of the Setting Sun!

Hope y'all enjoy it!  Please leave a comment, any feedback would be much appreciated!

V.2 - 183% less POV and tense errors, partly in thanks to the help of Shadowdrake27 and Mizal.  Thank you both!

A tale of torture, travel, and terrible secrets.

For the Tiny 'Topias Jam, even if it is slightly wordy.

Mizal's Prompts (Better Than Ogre's) on 6/2/2020 6:54:32 PM

Day 1) Ogre's Demise

June Writing Prompts: Day 4

Alright, revert…  easy enough.  Don’t have to do any intense medical research like yesterday, I can just write something artsy and faggoty, or maybe even one of those drug PSA’s.  Going strong, almost halfway through the first week.

June Writing Prompts: Day 9

Et cetera? Uhm, alright.  I might be able to turn this into some sort of joke story.  Maybe instead of et cetera, I’ll just create a story around a world where instead of using et cetera, people have to say the entire list of things they were gonna replace with et cetera.

June Writing Prompts: Day 11

Thesaurus, onomasticon, language reference book, et cet---, ah, I mean, storehouse of words, word list, glossary, terminology, sourcebook, treasury of words, lexicon, vocabulary.

June Writing Prompts: Day 15

Night jar.  Gonna have to Google this one.  Alright well, to begin with, if they’re talking about the bird, it’s one fucking word: nightjar.  Secondly, I really don’t want to write about birds.  What’s miz’s day 15… fucking cutthroats.  God, that would be so easy.  Fuck this shit.

June Writing Prompts: Day 21

That’s just fucking lazy.  

June Writing Prompts: Day 26

So, Shonda Rhimes huh? I take it all back, whomever wrote this list has some fantastic taste.  A bit specific but boy do I have a lot to write about here.  

June Writing Prompts: Day 30

Fucking hell, it’s the last day.  All I’ve got to do is finish this piece of writing drek, press ‘post’, and it’s all over.  So fed up with this shit that I’m not even bothering to copy and paste it from somewhere else.  Please, just let this go smoothly.  So long as the site doesn’t crash or something, I’m in the clea---

Ooh I think I might do this.


Tiny 'topias Jam on 5/15/2020 11:29:02 PM

Did so just now, had to wait for the 2 days to fully pass.

The Unsightly Treatment of One, Benjamin Schatz.

Another wordy failure, but I like it.


Ideas, Criticism, and Reviews on my story on 4/2/2020 2:11:10 PM

The thing about cliche stories is that they're everywhere, so don't beat yourself up too bad about that.  When it comes to cliches, the number one thing you need to be concerned with is dialogue.  As long as your idea is executed well, it can and will almost certainly borrow ideas from other things.  This was an interesting and engaging story.  The only thing that I noticed that might've disturbed the flow was the interruptions from the main character's consciousness during tense moments, and qute routinely.  It seemed to change the tone I think you might've been going for to a more lighthearted style.

Of course, if that's what you were going for, then it works.  Interested to read the next part when you write it!


OUTBREAK FEVER! Have a Corona! on 3/25/2020 10:46:36 PM

Can't get tested until I have all of the symptoms, apparently, otherwise we'd all be getting tested.  And they should allow us to quarantine at home, with any luck.  Nobody I know is in a facility.


OUTBREAK FEVER! Have a Corona! on 3/25/2020 10:07:57 PM

Quick update: we've got five confirmed cases of the 'rona in my workplace, most of which are people I know and interact with regularly.  So I'm screwed.


OUTBREAK FEVER! Have a Corona! on 3/20/2020 8:56:28 PM

I've got some spare graph paper, a lot of pencils, and a quarantine to sit though.  We'll see.  I'm no engineer though, so the design is gonna be a major issue.


OUTBREAK FEVER! Have a Corona! on 3/17/2020 7:26:13 PM

Maybe a very basic level of knowledge lol, but I don't work on them at all.  And thanks!  We're doing alright so far.


Corona Tag! on 3/16/2020 11:04:12 PM

The implication is that neither your character nor anyone else in quarantine actually has Covid-19, and instead has something else (that apparently the government just kills you outright for having).
