As of 1/15/2018:
I'm (sorta) working on a fanfic. It'll be featured if all goes to plan. :)

If you want to know more about me, send me a PM. Anyway, I'm fairly nice but my writing abilities are less than superb. Meh, I may write something that's liked more than a 5/8 eventually. Hopefully it's my WIP.

Please rate my storygames, especially Solstice and No Quarter. My goal is to eventually have one over 100 ratings. Thank you!

Brief stuff on my storygames:


4-Simplex: An experimental game. It has some flaws, but I like it.

Claire of Lune: A pretty meh storygame of mine. I almost took it down, but it's still up.

Life as a Time Traveler: If you want to see how far my writing has come, read this one.

No Quarter: I love this one. It also jointly won a contest, and it's pretty short. Can't you spare a few minutes for me? :)

Solstice: My highest rated storygame, though it's linearity and unrefined use of the advanced editor probably hurt an otherwise solid School Based storygame.

The Carnival, Ginny, and I: This's really bad. It's one of those "I just made an account, so I need to make a storygame" occurrences. Nonetheless, I did use the criticism to improve the story, so I at least showed that I'm better than the average newb. :)

Waiting for the (Trump) Train: There was once a storygame called Waiting for the Train. I parodied that storygame with this one before it was taken down. It is not a serious work of mine, and I wrote it in two hours. I published it an hour later. I'm leaving it up just because.

 

Bible Verse: Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord
Forever.

Storygames

4-Simplex

The barrier between impossible and possible is thin.

This is an entry for the Summer Slam contest.

You will be individually following Billy Joe, Runt, Virgil, and Slim.

Author's Notes:
Each character has their own storyline that is intertwined with the others' own storylines, so your choices will effect the paths of multiple characters simultaneously in little and big ways. A choice can have a large effect even if it does not appear to do so at first, so choose carefully. Sometimes, a character's storyline is blocked (by dying) until another character does something different. Lastly, try to be nice and try not to die, for it is very helpful to do both of those things.

Also, I am deeply grateful for Tyrannosaurusrex's beta-reading. Your imputes were very helpful. Thank you so much.


Claire of Lune

This was an entry for the Chaos Contest. Now it's just here for you to enjoy.

 

A frozen winter can be akin to Hell
So listen to this story that I will tell
Crazies throw the world into Chaos today
There's no way for me to keep evil at bay

Crazies should give you fright
Especially their bite
While the men act like beasts
Wanting tomorrow's feasts


Life as a Time Traveler

Steve is a time traveler, but he is not a superhero.  He does not use his powers for battling evil or being evil.  In fact, he does not even know what to do with his gloomy and crumbling life.  Perhaps today things will be different.  Perhaps today his present and future will be saved by... quite a special person.

Authors' Note: The endings depend on Steve's previous decisions.  There is one special ending found half way through the game, one sad ending, two real endings that are found at the end, and the "true epilogue" that is the best ending.  (The best ending has Stephanie in it in case you are wondering.)


No Quarter

This is a fan fiction of Led Zeppelin's song "No Quarter".

********************
*************************
********************

It is also an entry for the New Frontier Contest.


Solstice

This is part of the School Based storygame contest.

This is Lawrence's final few days at Hawthorn School. Things become... memorable.

Thank you iavatus for being my beta-reader and At_Your_Throat for the cover art.

EDIT:
I fixed the scripting error. You can now receive 1,000 points by finding the ending shown to those who have the normally maximum score of 400. I also added your total score at the end of the game so that you don't have to post in order to see it.

Cover


The Carnival, Ginny, and I

This is the story of Ginny and Ethan's times at the carnival.  As the years pass, can Ginny and Ethan's friendship continue or will their paths no longer intertwine?  Will Ethan overcome his avid dislike of roller coasters?

Can their friendship bloom into something greater?

EDIT:
Okay, after viewing the comments, I too realized the massive error I had created in the original ending.  Thank you Briar Rose, Bucky, and Steve24833 for you comments.  I truly mean that.  In fact, I burst out laughing (at my story) when I read the comments--especially Briar Roses'.  Thank you.

Now, there are two endings.  The first is the  original (with a few minute changes), and the new one is much different from the other one.  (They also wrote to each other because this story took place before the internet became widely public.)


Waiting for the (Trump) Train

Alternate title: WIBN Parodies Annoying Stuff

TRIGGER WARNING: If you personally know Trump, have ever heard of Trump, know anybody who knows Trump, know anybody who has ever heard of Trump, or has political beliefs of any kind, please do not play.

None of your choices have any effect. If you do see a choice having an effect, then you must be clearly wrong. Heck, it isn't like this is a site where you can choose your own story or anything.

The story is told though you own choices. Don't argue with me. Your choices have no meaning, but the entire storygame is told through your choices.

Also, please do not comment or rate my storygame. I published it not to improve my abilities as a writer. My feelings will be hurt if you even think about commenting especially if your comments are not nice. Also, men cannot comment because sexism or something.


The Force Shall Set Me Free
unpublished

This's my current WIP. It's a fanfic.


The Mountain of Scath Dubh

You are a weary traveler in a mysterious land.

They counted enough to give you a contest winning trophy, so I wouldn't be surprised if they did. Anyway, you're bound to win some major contest or have some storygame featured by the time 3J returns in 2020. :)


New Trophy Winners on 1/15/2018 8:08:33 AM

@Romulus

You are now quallified for your own personal trophy! You have 2k points, over 3/4 of all available user trophies, and 2 featured storygames + won major contests  (which I believe quallified as major if a contest winner trophy is given). 

I may be wrong here, but I believe (and hope to be) right. :)


New Trophy Winners on 1/15/2018 8:02:51 AM

Will, you shure know how to give great Christmas presents. Congratulations to all who just received Will's trophy. I suppose I should get off my lazy ads and write something that'll get featured. :)

If Betty does it quickly enough, we should be able to do both with time to spare. :)
The back stab probably won't be immediately fatal unless we're really unlucky.

Write in D.
Plunge the knife in the guard's back, then do this to him. :)


A Bantastic Thread on 1/13/2018 8:16:51 AM

I've been watching this thread the entire time. It's been bloody hillarious. We even had a twist ending with the reveal of the secret agent. Great job villains and your newest (apparently suit-wearing) member. :)


Council of Nine: Cancerous Cunts on 1/12/2018 3:59:31 PM

It's great to see you doing these again. Recent events have turned out to be hilarious for me as a spectator.

I hope Saika (I honestly never liked him much anyway) and his merry band of salty kids provide more motivation/stuff for you to use to write more of these. They always make me laugh. :)


Sanitarium! (Collaborative CYOA) on 1/12/2018 10:14:55 AM

A. I bet our protagonist can do a bunch with these tools.


Sanitarium! (Collaborative CYOA) on 1/9/2018 9:11:36 PM

A. To reference Lord of the Flies... Slit their throats! Spill their blood! :)


Sanitarium! (Collaborative CYOA) on 1/9/2018 5:01:29 PM

A. Let's kill some guards. I've been hoping the story could head this way for some time.
