This is exactly what I need! Someone who can yell at me to do things while I yell at them about the suffering of art or some bullshit. I'm interested, co-author pending.
@Melliapop and I are in.
Still busy with the rework of my other story, from the school themed contest a few months ago. Not sure if I'll have time to participate in this one or not, but we'll see. Fun idea to require co-authoring. Definitely looking forward to seeing what everyone writes.
Definitely participating. Damn I don't know who to partner with.....
I'm willing to enter as long as I can find a co-author. (Though, it is pretty obvious that I'd need a partner to formally enter.)
I guess I'm interested, though I have to give a warning that I usually don't work very well with co-authors.
I'll participate. Nevermind. Have to focus on my own story atm.
I wouldn't mind but I need a partner.
Thanks for thinking of me. However, I'll have to bow out due to some deadlines that are fast approaching. I don't have the time to give this contest what it deserves.
Additionally, you may want to create a free slack channel to communicate with your partner. I will also be providing supplementary point awards to a number of top finishers, depending on the number of entrants.
Someone better make a spooky scary skeletons tribute.
Aaaaaaah! I'll never be able to get a co-author in time!
What do you mean Charaxes? There are probably a lot of people who still need a co-author. This thread is only a day old.
No, I mean, I'm too socially inept and not sure who to even ask.
Well, I'm socially awkward and somehow got 3 offers of co-authors >.>
4 if you count that really confusing question I got in my PM....which, I'm still not sure if it was a offer to be a co-author, a question about co-authoring, or someone hitting their keyboarding repeatedly with their head and somehow forming the word co-author by some unholy fluke.
So, the point of that is... I'm sure you'll get someone c:
I would join
But i am nooooit in yhe best statw of mind right now
Tim, are you drunk? XD
I was editing that you shitt
Sorry I'm not actually sorry though
Odds are Tim had half a can and is now acting retarded.
JUST CUZ UR IRISH DOESNT MEAN YOU KNOW ABOUT BLOOD ALCOHOL CONTENT STEVE
Tim, stop being retarded. I swear to god, if I don't see an apology thread for this tomorrow, because those were great, I'm going to be annoyed.
Your face is retarded.
I'm going to be scared if Steve joins... I hear he wins a lot of contests.
If Steve joins....
Yeah, I'm in.
WHO ARE YOU EVEN GOING TO CO-AUTHOR WITH, STEVE?!
I've paired with End, so I'm quite pleased.
Lol, that's right, make those children cower.
I COWER IN FEAR
I kind of feel like this pair is going to be majority work Steve. No offense to End. It just seems like he'll be too busy with other things to put in the amount of work that he would be happy with. But of course that's just a guess.
Endmaster?!!! WE'RE SCREWED!!!!!
Steve. Please. Give us little peasants a chance.
Steve needs a handicap, Bucky should make him pair up with Slasher.
But Slash is with Melliapop.
Because that's his girlfriend.
Bucky should make him pair up with Swed. We can see how long it takes for them to kill each other.
I'm not handicapped. I prefer very slow. Like a mentally challenged turtle.
She didn't say you were handicapped. She said if you would act as a handicap to the other writer in the pair, i.e. me.
Ah. My mistake. Thus further proving that I'm handicapped.
Lol, don’t be scared of Steve.
Just pair up with Romulus.
End...you...you're not entering...right? Right? Say yes. For my sanity.
I'll only be scared of End entering if he teams up with Steve. If he teams up with someone else, I'll probably be able to beat him.
Okay. Um. I will..I will just...Hide.
Damn. You must be a hell of a writer.
I would be more willing to bet on Steve to be honest xD
I lost the last contest I entered.
Yeah, welp. I'd still be more willing to bet on you xD
First place: Steve24833, for "Prometheus Academy"
But I thought Prometheus Academy won.
It did, but I did Bucky's short story contest, where Romulus kicked my ass.
He's referring to Buck's pervious contest. Rom won.
Ohhh. That thing.
On another note. Oops. I lost almost 200 points gambling. RIP
... I wasn't saying that at all. End is just swamped with admin duties right now and I figured he'd be too busy to write at 100%. If he writes with Steve, though, it'll be like a vicious competition to one-up each other in detail, page length, and route numbers... and they'll each write at 120%.
Swamped with admin duties? He clicks a button to removed the occasional shit story, and the more frequent shit thread. Most of the time consuming stuff involved catching up on the Draw My Attention thread since previous admins had neglected it so long.And End was getting plenty of work done on his own projects during this time.
I'm sorry to inform you all that you may just be screwed.
You'd still need to be an excellent writer to beat a swamped Endmaster!
Hey Bucky, would it be alright if you do a raffle to pair us up? Of course it'd need the other members consent.
Ah, thanks for that.
I just noticed it says Malk and Steve. That's going to be as edgy as shit. xD
I'd like to join, but I'd be lacking a co-author.
I am also lacking a co-author, if you haven't gotten one yet, I'm open.
A day too late, mate.
Also, I've noticed you're new here, so, welcome to CYStia!
cri cri desperately-ness
Hey, so shouldn't this actually be in News and Announcements like all the other story contests that have being Featured as a prize?
EDIT: oh hey it got moooooooooved.
I, like apparently everyone else, lack a co-author, but certainly would be open to teaming up with anyone who was inclined (i.e. anyone left over).
I enjoyed this message twice as much thanks to copy/paste magic. All the same, I read you loud and clear.
Hm, I don't think I'll try this competition for a few reasons.
1. The last person I was co-authoring a story with semi-spectacularly left the site amidst the loss of his moderator duties, perhaps I am cursed and for the good of the site it's better if I don't co-author with anyone :D
2. I'm swamped with work until 1 October when I'm off on a ten day holiday so I'm not sure I'll have the time to do this.
3. Horror is not a genre I have much experience with and against such experts as Endmaster and Steve I feel my odds of writing a better story than them are about the same as being struck by lightning (and that's because I like to think if I did win the competition End would obviously contact the dark forces he's in touch with and arrange for an "accident" involving lightning, flames or apocalypses to befall the competition winner).
I wish good luck to everyone who enters though and look forward to reading all the competition entries. Thanks again to Bucky for organising such an interesting competition, these things are great to see. Maybe I'll give the next one a shot (my hunch tell me it might be Christmas themed...)
I think Will should be considered as a judge if it's a position that he'd be willing to assume.
Oh yeah, he definitely should.
Haha thanks Ogre but I think your ability to write short stories on a non-historical basis outshines mine :D I don't mind making Disney scary silly but I lack the energy atm to make it funny :P There are lots of good co-op authors available though if you are interested in entering this, I'd love to see a horror short story from you + Co Author as you've written so many great short stories in the past :D
Haha we are actually really similar :D I only ever make one account on sites though, I don't have the time or interest to go alt-making :)
I feel like I'm at a school dance, where everyone's standing awkwardly to the side and complaining they don't have a partner while nervously looking at the floor.
You know, despite my schedule, I am really interested in participating. I just need a coauthor. Is anybody still looking for one?
Aww, you say this now? XD
I'd have been really interested in co-authoring with you!
I'm curious as to why, considering how infrequently I comment XD
I really liked reading your stuff
The writing exercises I mean
Thanks! They are regrettably some of the only times where I have been able to write here (even though I've had some ideas).
c: Well, good luck to you anyways.
Ask, Bucky. He should have the info on who has who at this point. :)
I'll jump in if I can find a co-author in time.
A question: Are we allowed beta-readers or do you think it shouldn't be needed since this is a co-author project?
Pffh, if that's who I'm facing, this'll be easy.
With that attitude, you'll win EVERYTHING! I have decided to use your attitude as well.
Bilulus, Penguzzi, ItAin'tBreezy, Leogre, Threadigit.
Well, that's been sorted out.
Edit: Oh, by the way, if you disagree with this pairings, directltly post here to let the other author you don't think they're good enough for you.
Yeah, I choose them, they're clearly amazing.
As a triggered SJW I feel assaulted at my stolen given birth right of choosing and consent.
I'll see you in court.
I came to that conclusion independently, so bite my ass, Steve!
Okay, nobody should be assigned by Steve, dude's clearly out to sabotage the other teams. (Those of them who haven't already sabotaged themselves...)
What I'd recommend is each of you taking this list and posting the other names in a ranking from the ones you'd most like to work with, to the least.
Pffh, fuck that. They had a chance to use the initiative. They did not. Hence, I solved it. The kids won't dance, I'm the teacher pairing them up.
Ford is actually joining? :o
This is fine. This is... fine. I can work through this. Steve AND Ford. Both of them. HAH. BOTH OF THEM. AMAZING WRITERS. AND I HAVE TO COMPETE WITH THEM.
THIS IS FINE.
Wow. So I am not considered a good writer? XD
I feel insulted
But it's oh so true
You've only written one story, Seto. The rest are unpublished.
Has Ford even written anything?
NO BUT HE'S SCARY GOOD!
*sniffles* What about the person with a 100% storygames read.
And got 2000 points in only a few months? Jeez, my feelings, man. And I thought we were friends, too.
You officially scare me more than you did before!
All those free points...
At the same time...all that terrible writing...
I will take your word for it as I cannot see those stories...xD
How do you know he's good?
It's over 9000
Anyways, @Steve @Ford , I look forward to losing to you guys :3
Since when is Ford anything to fear? Or did one of his alts split off from the hive mind and gain sentience? Is this the 'amazing writer' you speak of?
Oh I get it, that's the alt he originally wanted to partner with, right?
I think the main idea is that Ford IS an alt. He is part of something much greater......
I don't believe that for a second. XD
That's very accurate.....
i need a co-author |-0
Don't assign anyone. If someone fails at reading the thread, and the tiny amount of communication needed to find a partner, they can't possibly work together effectively with a co-author and their project was doomed from the start.
I have now a co-author, who goes to my school! Yay!
Well, Steve, your prophesy has become real!
Please don't use Penguzzi
I could do it with Ogre as long as he doesn't mind and wants to write a story for this contest.
The fact you had to do this does not bode well for this pairing.
This is my brother's birthday gift. It's done on his birthday.
I WILL MAKE IT THE WORST BIRTHDAY GIFT EVER!
So excited to try for second place.
Good to see you're confident in you and your partner's abilities.
We are confident. In getting second place.
I'm probably not joining after all guys, because I want to give Steve a chance to win I'll probably be too busy next month to actually write a decent story.
Not even going to give me a chance to rebuild my shattered ego by beating you? Shame.
I didn't want to shatter your ego further by beating you again... I assume there'll be a contest in December, I'll give you a chance to beat me then.
I'll start brainstorming stuff for a Christmas-y storygame then xD
I'm most likely kidding. I'll be too busy typing this horror story xD
My story is doing G-R-E-ate!
Yeah I guess
Ahem. Sorry. Our story.
It appears that I am late.
Everyone is already partnered with someone.
I'll just go cry in a corner now.
Er... team up with Tim? Or is he already partnered?
Already partnered with Beardon.
Mason wanted to partner with me, but that was when I was gone for a little bit so when I came back it was too late.
He is mine now...
And now we wait for responses!
So which one of these lovely contestants would like to join Chris in writing a horror game? Just know that I'll probably try to push it towards being a horror comedy.
No, that was Tim.
BlueThread and I are planning on getting together to write something.
Digit and I teamed up, so it's fine.
Not great. I've had other things on, so I haven't been able to put in as much effort as desired. We're on 75 pages.
Poorly. 37 pages.
I'm a lazy shit... so yeah.
S'okay, big bear.
Yeah... yeah it is.
I'm planning for Vampires.
Half a page.
It's going okay.
Mellia and I are going to have too drop out. Sorry.
Steve, do your shit. *bows before him*
I actually wasn't going to comment, but if I'm being drawn away from my writing (85 pages, yay!), I guess I'll make a token effort.
Slashy, you failed. You proved yourself to be incapable of writing on a writing site, and given the fact your points suggests you don't read storygames, you should just leave.
I am the Philosopher-King described by Plato, the Ubermensch described by Nietzche, the very God dreamt about by Muhammed. I am unbreakable, unstoppable, unbeatable. This competition is mine.
Also, Malk exists.
Thank you, almighty king.
It's not so much that. Mellia and I haven't been working on it at all and she's leaving for almost a week soon. I'll see what we can do.
Okay... I give up.
I'm not dropping out of the contest, but... you win, Steve. You win. I just can't keep up with your writing pace at this point.
Still going to try to finish my game on time and still participate in the contest, but I've abandoned any hope of actually earning 1st place. Still might get third.
I mean no real offense by saying this, but if you go into a contest thinking you won't win. You won't win. Aside from that, it's better to aim higher, because you might land around your goal if you don't achieve it.
DON'T RUIN MY DRAMATIC GIVING UP SCENE!!!111!!1
You were never particularly a threat, given that Esh existed. Iron Panther was the threat.
I'm guessing it's too late to enter.....
Not at all. You can enter literally three hours before the deadline if you wanted to.
I'd end up with a terrible story though.
There's still almost an entire month left. You won't end up with a terrible story if you start now. Plenty of people are only just starting now. I mean, the contest began about ten days before October so the people who started early only got a ten day head start.
But now I'll have to search for a co-author....
*points to Himario's post*
He wants Seto to be his co-author
Seto's already taken, though.
Well i don't know, but that's what it says.
I'm with IronPanther and I cant take another person as coauthor, therefore; Himario is open for coauthoring unless they were only willing to participate in this contest if I was their coauthor. In that case, there are a few other people I can recommend to do this contest with as I've rejected their offers and they haven't appeared to have found anyone else.
I wish we could have written together :,(
if someone agrees to let me be their co-author (Seto) then im in.
As part of the Steve "Do better, because Malk and I are making you look like dog-shit" announcement, I'd like to point out we're at 145 pages, because I am an asshole who likes to gloat. How are the rest of you guys doing?
Procrastination is a bitch.
Insane alone is enough to scare Steve.
Ah, it's already almost over, and there's no good coauthors left. I say wait it out until the next one.
I'd love to, but I already have a partner.
I thought you dropped out.
Pretty sure I did. Not sure yet. I'll have to speak to Mellia more about it.
Good to know you're wearing the pants in the relationship.
If Char isn't going to be online for the next week or so, I'm going to have to drop out.
Sorry about that...
Digit and I are going to try to get our story done in time. If not, we'll still work on it and publish it as a regular story.
It's ok, I wrote the first paragraph
Me and IronPanther still intend to finish our story c:
So my question is once the storys done how do we submit it to the contest do we just publish it or...
You can just publish it, if your partner's definitely OK with it. Just tag it as Contest Entry as its tags, and best mention that its for the contest in the description. Then, you can just publish it.
This guy doesn't have a coauthor now that PugTaco has been banned. I would recommend messaging him or insanebutvain.
That guy thought it was a good idea to pick Pugtaco add a partner. He has no sense or standards as a writer and anyone who writes with him will have to live with the knowledge they were second pick to freakin Pugtaco.
Not really. I wrote the whole story. I just needed someone to stand off to the side and keep their mouth shut. I was carrying him to victory and he got himself BANNED?!
Meh. Maybe I'll join the next contest.
She's a wonderful writer, and I'm still not very confident with my English yet. This is such a hard language to learn, blegh.
Mmm, well that's because I double check everything meticulously before posting anything. But I'm sure there are still some mistakes that I make.
I will publish someday soon, but I'll probably need a bunch of help with literally everything. I still will probably be more of a reader than writer if that day does come :P
To be fair, this is your own fault, Bucky. If you wanted to find a bunch of writers for a contest, you should've went to a writing site.
Fuck it, gas the forums.
My life is complete End.
Ahaha, I heard the WIBN story last night. A cautionary tale in the importance of choosing partners wisely.
Pretty pitiful turnout, but about what I expected. There aren't enough people on this site with the time, ability and inclination to make a serious attempt, even before you factor in the co-author wrinkle and divide that pool by two.
I am currently Harrison Ford.
A page in fact!
@Bucky Since no one's weighed in on the point fee yet, just fyi I'm definitely all for it, if End doesn't mind the extra busywork. Inability to stick to a goal is what does us all in, incentives are needed. Even if it was as little as ten points, it might make a difference, and that way anyone who produces something worthwhile gets a participation prize.
I agree. The temporary point penalty should produce some extra motivation from us.
I would probably be up for it in regards to time and effort. It's just that horror really is probably my least favorite genre to write. I think we all know that if a writer doesn't want to write a story, then they won't write that story. I look forward to the December contest though.
What the hell happened to Killer Moth Girl anyway?
She was all over the place and then she just suddenly ran away. Granted she could stand to calm down, but I actually didn’t mind her compared to some of the other new idiots we’ve been getting lately.
Disappeared after it was discovered that she(?) had the same IP as Lemons. At first they were apparently just acquaintances from Roblox, but then that evolved into neighbors or something.
What a shame...
I suppose it is :(
I was wondering about that too, she was practically spamming threads for a little while there and then just vanished.
Though 20 days isn't that big a deal, except that it kind of left her co-author hanging, and I thought they were actively working on an entry.
@eshspoyeofdoom You were her partner, did you two officially decide to drop out?
She never told me that she was leaving...
It's weird 'cause, we were determined to finish the story on time. We also had an entire series planned and detailed to the bone.
I decided it would be appropriate to drop out. If she comes back... at least I could say that I didn't submit an incomplete story.
I really would like to enter, but idk if I can find a co-author or if I can get it done by the deadline.
Yeah, deadline's in four days. Even if you could get a co-author, you definitely wouldn't finish in time.
If I could grow in my beard I would go full hipster Sayian mode and speed through our story adding some good teenage drama and a deep thought provoking storyline that only my class of hipsters would truly "understand". That would be worthy of one of those indie awards that all the people who tried get.
Tl;DR we'll get it done eventually.
And by getting it done eventually he means when both of us stop being lazy. Specifically, when I stop being lazy.
OMS was written in about 3 days.
Finally published our story with the "Contest Entry" tag on it I hope that's enough.
Nm figured out how to enter it. Here's to hoping we win!
I left a comment xD
Good luck! :)
Thank you! I'm also gonna take it down really quick and fix those grammer mistakes you pointed out.
I may not have noticed any mistakes later on though. It was hard enough concentrating on the words and plots when confronted with the wall of text...do you think you can fix that? ^^;
The wall of text mean one giant paragraph instead of it being broken up into smaller paragraphs? I'll do my best but as it's my first story and the deadline's in a few days I wouldn't get my hopes up but I'll remember that while I'm preparing future games.
Yes, that's what walltext means xD
It's pretty easy to fix, or at the very least, partly fix.
Well I put spaces between them so there's 2 or three smaller paragraphs instead of one giant paragraph. I hope that helps to an extent at least. I also fixed the grammer mistakes and unwittingly found a spelling mistake as well!
It is much better! :D
Good luck on winning the contest! :)
My money is still on Steve :P
You're welcome! :)
Wait?! Pugtaco's banned?! I'm freaking screwed!!!!!! Is anybody LEFT?!
Huh? What do you mean by "Is anybody LEFT?!"
Steve and Malk, Me and IronPanther, Digit and Chris... and who knows who else.
IronPanther hasn't been on in awhile though, and I will admit I'm getting nervous as we were doing a complete overhaul to fit the deadline...
I meant is anybody left to co-author with bc without a co-author my story won't be accepted.
I already finished it so I would just need somebody to put their name on it.
I think it still counts. Also, don't double post ;-;
OK. Sorry. Also the announcement at the top says that co-authoring is a requirement. Yep I'm screwed. I'd better find someone else.
Ask Ebon, Code or insanebutvain.
Or hey, any of the people who quit. Lol.
Or a random, slightly literate newbie.
The last time I picked a slightly literate newbie it came back to haunt me. Yeah I'll PM insanebutvain. Thank you.
He is not considered slightly literate. Does that word even belong in the same sentence as him?
Well, Banner doesn't seem like he's going to be banned soon and neither is Mage...I think.
*shrugs* Just saying, if insane doesn't coauthor with you.
Thank you again!
No problem ^-^
Yep I already asked Mage, Insanebutvain, and Banner whichever one of them PM's me first will get the slot. I'm freaking desperate... also if IronPanther dosen't get back on time before the deadline and I still haven't found a co-author you could put yourself as the co-author on my story. Here's to hoping those circumstances don't come to pass.
If he doesn't, I'll try to finish the overhaul, then work on the original idea after the deadline.
I already have half of it done. Was going to work in a quick ending for the deadline, and finish it after the contest, but he wanted to do a complete overhaul, which I am fine with.
And idk. I want to stay with IP whether he comes back or not xD
*coughs* misplaced loyalty *cough*
Respect. Here's to hoping I find a co-author. I REALLY want that trophy on my profile.
If PugTaco was involved in the making of the story, they're a coauthor. The fact that they're banned should, I think, be irrelevant to your submission.
"I think it still counts."
But wait until Bucky gets on and ask him.
Just in case and all that.
I wrote the story. There were parts of the story that he wrote in, but I had to edit them because they were... below standards.
Ah, that changes things, then. Your coauthor needs to do a significant part of the story for it to be viable as a contest entry.
Damn. Well at least I got the story published, and it was a good one. Maybe another time.
Well...in that case...
How much exactly is significant? Does um...2 pages of about 163 count? ;-;
Cause I can't quickly find someone else and all that. Meh, you know what? Nevermind, I'll still finish this thing. It just won't be a contest entry *sigh*
I wanted a custom trophy...
I feel your pain
I really want a custom trophy. That is my final wish on this site.
It requires a lot of points and half of the custom trophies.
Or you have to be a mod/admin. They automatically get one.
Or you have to have (3 I believe) storygames featured...
Or you have to win a site contest or something. I forgot...I asked one of the admins at some point.
I cry a little inside.
I wanted to give out trophies with a little...idk...S? A book?(may rethink this at some point) on them xD
Im available to co-author and write if you need someone last minute. I write best under pressure so I can contribute a significant amount with three days to go:p
Hey, even if you don't get the trophy for this one, you still made a story of considerable quality- much higher than the rest of the new stories, and there are other contests :)
I was armed only with an inability to be self-critical, and way too much time on my hands. It also might have been 4 days, I'm pretty hazy on it at this point. No outline or notes. Not sure how many words, but it's 456 pages, at least 50 (75?) of which are one-liners in that stupid maze. I'm thinking that a lot of other pages had very few words too.
I could never do that now, because I would be aware of how shitty my writing was.
Prepare your assholes. This contest is about to be fuckin over
When the story goes up you guys are pretty much going to win by default. Which is a shame because I'd imagine it would've been more satisfying to have some competition to destroy...
It would be. Was hoping there'd at least be some furfucks or something to stomp. Oh well
So Malk, once this contest is over, you finally gonna get to work on Farmer Joe?
I really want to just not publish the story, just so your contest has not a single entry.
They aren't going to win by default, because if we don't have at least 3 entries the contest is canceled.
So do they get anything? Or do you just keep it to yourself? While I did quit, I don't think winning by default is an actual win.
They won't get anything from me. The people who failed to write however will get SHAME.
Your opinion is irrelevant, as you are a shamed failure.
I simply thought you were kind of dumb before, but now I actively dislike you. Welcome to The List, turd boy.
Also, lol if you think you would've made their win more of an 'actual' one even if you had entered. In addition to being a disgusting failure, I have a feeling you're not as good an author as you think you are.
Come on, you putrid cunts! LOSE TO ME GOD DAMN YOU
Hey, bask in your momentary dominance. Next time, we all won't go so easy on you again. Ha ha. Also, congrats on creating the most effective power couple of the contest. :)
Fuck it, calling it now.
You lack discipline!
Tim: Personal issues, but SHAME anyway
Phoenix: SHAME AND BANNED LOLZ
Pug: SHAME AND BANNED LOLZ
ben: NOT SHAMED (But still lost)
Malk: DEGENERATE WINNER (bottom)
Steve: DEGENERATE WINNER (top)
If by some miracle something changes before 1 PM, this will be updated, but I seriously doubt it.
I think Tim may have killed a close family member to get out of this contest.
Nevermind the thing.
I PROMISED TO PRODUCE A STORY ANYWAY, DAMMIT.
Maybe... If I want to produce a story... I should actually work on it!
Is that Tywin Lannister in your avatar?
Nope. Cave Johnson.
I thought it was Grand Moff Tarkin.
I found everyone's favorite game.
ShowMeTheCode and NokadoThe published a storygame that's dog-shit, but hey, it's 2nd place.
Who the hell is Nokia? Anyway doesn't matter, I guess Show isn't SHAMED anymore.
That wasn't even a CYS story. That was a four-page linear shit story.
Do this again but ping them all, and I'm going to petition for you to take away some points. They killed the contest and prevented the only two entrants (who wrote an actually good story) from getting any reward for their effort, IMO they deserve injury in addition to insult.
Shame the fuck out of ShowMeTheCode and the other guy too. Their "story", kind of isn't one. Even if it's not spelled out in the rules I'd guess that an entry that qualifies for automatic deletion doesn't count.
Duly noted. Show is still SHAMED along with his partner.
It's a good thing we have concerned citizens like you working hard to help ensure that our most precious foundations are upheld.
Glory to CYStia
Well, at least I didn't get shamed.
I'm fucking in.
You're fucking late.
I've got six hours.
It was over at 13:01 EST. Which was six or seven hours ago. Even then, you need a co-author and you definitely can't get a solid story out in six hours.
EDIT: Wait, the deadline is actually 1 PM EST, not 1 AM EST. Still, my last two points stand.
Your legitimate criticism empowers me.
You have six hours. Find a coauthor, and write. Get us to that lucky number three entrants.
So far Steve and Malk are still the only contestants who submitted an actual story together.
If there are any people still trying to complete this thing, don't bother. While the SHAME will stick to you like the love bliss to coins' mom after a wild night, the LOLZ of denying Steve and Malk any sort of proper reward makes up for it.
I'm almost done.
I hope you found a co-author.
Regardless, I believe in you. The last thing Steve needs is another feature.
You'd be getting second place either way, am I right?
What a coincidence that you joined today of all days to save this contest.
I know who it is, and even with the co-author they're intending on choosing, they wouldn’t be eligible to win or even place due to Bucky's rules.
However, I’m still sort of hoping they produce an okay story anyway.
Is that so? Well, I'm always happy for a good story to read. ^^
But this is simply incorrigible then. So much shame, you could make a shame pie if you wanted. But I'm guessing that it would taste like shame actually. So not very good.
Pardon, by what doesn't it qualify?
It looked like at first it was you and your "alt" which Bucky already said was against the rules.
However as I already said in another post, based on your past, I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt that you're two different people.
I did it, right?
Fortunately Uglick has a fairly good rep around here, so if he’s saying that you’re actually two different people, I’ll make the leap of faith.
Plus it looks like you actually put some work into the story and is at least more of a CYOA than what Show and his partner did.
I guess it’s a legit submission, unless Bucky’s got objections for some reason.
To meet the criteria of the assignment, I hereby announce my interest in this thread.
My hat is in the ring. My under 8 hours of work, under the influence of alcohol for the majority of the time, is now here for you all to see. Oh, and Mandnando helped too, shortly before falling asleep on my bed.
Given that Ug and his drunk dinosaur buddy practically came in at the last minute and STILL patched an actual story together just makes the rest of your SHAMINGS even worse!
Oh, we didn't win. That's settled. My aim to was to produce a functional story game rapidly. That I accomplished.
With or without or co-author who may or may not be an alt, it's not a bad story at all and nicely trippy. I'm impressed you got it out so fast.
I could only give it a quick read on my phone but I'll definitely be taking a closer once I'm home.
I should note that with the story being so short people should find more than one ending before rating, especially endings that are not deaths.
This isn't anything like I'd always aimed to make my first story game here. But I'm actually really proud of what I've put out. It's invigorating. All day I've toggled between thoughts on the finished product and what I might do next.
It's cool though, because my next piece will not have a coauthor.
Any word on this?
Oh, pop in some saucy Bucky feedback.
I'll be happy to provide personalized feedback, for what my ideas are worth, on these two very great stories that were really enjoyable reads and well-written stories.
Cheers Will, thanks.
Lit. Thanks mate.
Oh, wow. Thanks for the feedback here. It feels great to see what I worked on appreciated. However, please only link the other story of the two. I think it was clearly better than mine and Lamp's. I'm sure Steve and Malk put considerably more time in than I did.
Please, Leave comments on the story itself by all means.
Your humility disgusts me. Your work was very good and you're one of the few site people who aren't twats who can't even write a simple contest entry. I demand it be linked, you humble bastard.
I don't think I could've set my expectations any lower for this contest, but even I was rather disheartened by the result. That is quite a remarkable feat to accomplish, so there's that. ^^
Hmm, although I'm quite confused about one thing in particular, tbh. Lancelot was rather active in the RP side of things on the forums, so I'm not sure on how WIBN and him couldn't properly communicate with each other to make something work out. Oh well, I suppose it doesn't matter now.
Maybe December will be better? :)
Yes, it is quite... different as for why our story did not work. (We actually put out effort.) Nonetheless, I will not delve into the details as a courtesy for privacy of PMs, (but there were no ill feelings between us when we surrendered to Steve and Bucky).
Okay, I just say Lance's post which said, "While I did quit, I don't think winning by default is an actual win." I will now shame both pf us by showing how deserving Malk and Steve are.
First and foremost, we had a bad idea to begin with. It was one of those stories where everybody is in a haunted building. It still sounds pretty generic... well, here it gets interesting. There were very few female characters in the storgame, yet all of them were lesbian, but the oddest aspect of this was that one of the girls only had the personality trait of "lesbian". Of course, I did all I can to salvage the characters, but they were still flat and low-quality by my standards. At this point, I was getting worried.
As we started writing the story, I noticed something odd about Lance's writing style. There were no quotation marks.... at all. I could not convince Lance to use them. The nail in the coffin of the story was when Lance told me about one of the death scenes. A character (who was rather tasteless) wishes to not down as the bathroom was flooding. Naturally, he would head to the nearest toilet. There, the character flushed the toilet to the drink its air. (Why?!) Instead of air coming up, a giant turd came out, and the character thus eats it and dies. Cue the LOLs.
As such, I realized that this potential entry should not be finished. Sorry Lance, but I figured this should give Malk and Steve some added praise (while minimizing the effectiveness for your argument that they should not win due to others not entering).
Oh... Well, I suppose that it was probably for the best to drop out of the contest then x)
Some of those details sound rather horrifying.
Can you imagine waiting nine months and then having Lancelot come slithering out of your cunt?
Someone should make a horror story about it.
With lesbians and giant turds of course.
As I lay on the bed in the bright room of the hospital, with my caring husband (well, as caring as a huge piece of turd is, anyways...) and the female doctor at the end of the bed telling me to breath deeply and push (in between moans of ecstasy as she masturbated, of course), I could feel the baby coming, after a long 9 months my baby was finally about to be born! But then the pain hit. Unbearable waves of pain surged through my body, and I let out a piercing shriek that rang throughout the hospital. My husband, obviously not noticing my outburst, since he is a, well, piece of shit. However, the doctor seems to have gone in full pussy playing mode, seemingly very turned on by my pain, not even paying attention to the baby anymore. Then, the baby comes. I can feel as something finally spurts out of my private parts, inducing incredible pain throughout your body and making a sickening splat on the floor. I wait for what seems like an eternity, paralyzed by fear, with the only sound being the doctor's moans as she seems to hit her climax and the squelching sounds as the thing gets up off the floor. Finally, the thing looks at me from across the bed, and utters its first words from its mouth.
Hi mom, how are you doing, it said.
I blink twice in shock before it continues.
Hey, hey, mom, hey, hey, hey mom!, it rambled.
I stare stupidly before I burst in laughter at the pathetic morsel in front of me. Suddenly, I'm joined by many others in the room, all laughing and pointing at the idiot who isn't even using quotation marks! The thing flees the hospital, chased out by everyone in the room. The abomination is able to escape, but something that looks like it has been reported to scour particular internet forums...
Well you just got more points than Lancelot did.
Disturbing imagery aside, this is written rather well.
To be honest,
a) In literary pieces in spanish, quotation marks are not usually used, and as it is my first language, I did commit that mistake.
b) In Kingsman, there is a scene where the rooms are flooded and they use shower pipes to get air from the toilets, weird, I know, but I thought it would make for something interesting.
c) Correction? please, he/she never told me anything about the quotation marks, and as for the characters, I do admit they were generic, but if it was actually such a problem, why didn't WIBN tell me anything apart from the sexuality isue? He/she never actually tried to change the story's setting nor told me to do it, so I thought he/she was okay with it.
Finally, WIBN, next time say something to my face instead of waiting around for anyone else to ask you about it.
What's happening in December?
Probably another contest, or something of the sort.
No word yet on what it'll be?
There will be another next month. We don't know the theme.
I look forward to losing all my points! :D
I look forward to losing half of my points in an attempt to get a storygame made :)
