Lone Hero Contest
Lone Hero Contest
DUSTY FIST 2 TIME
For all my bruddahs making post-apocalyptic stories for the contest:
Some good old western music.
I call it "The White Knight" ... A story of a bold and fearless incel, who stands alone against his own kind to defend the fair M'Ladies on internet forums. Sadly, just like opening doors or pulling out chairs, the fair maidens still do not deem to notice their Mountain Dew guzzling saviour. Still, he refuses to give up. And so the brave soul wonders on from reddit thread to reddit thread, in the hopes of one day feeling the sweet and tender embrace of an entirely platonic and awkward half-arm hug. ^_^
Not like I care if you submit the same story, I mean the only limitation on this would be if Mizal insists on submitting a new story for her contest.
Would giving the lone hero a companion be against the rules? Like, a lone duo? Or is this a hard one protag. only?
Yeah put me down for this one
Hell yeah, this sounds nice. I officially declare my entrance.
Pls leave unlocked in the event of me waiting until the last minute and having nothing to turn in.
I'll get in on this
Am I really the sum total of Catholics on this site? That's disconcerting
I'm touched and my heart is warmed
Hey a cowards got to do what he has got to do to not be double shamed.
Does my protagonist/POV character have to be the lone hero, or can they be someone else interacting with them on their journey? The plot would still revolve heavily around this lone hero, the story just wouldn't be from their perspective.
Count me in! This should be fun.
Sounds interesting, might as well give it a go. Does it have to be a certain length?
I hope Mizal is keeping track of who is actually in this contest.
I am so confused EndMaster, are you still gonna make your yummy content or are u retiring?
What the hell are you even talking about?
Trial by fire baby. I'm new here. I've never made a single storygame. I'm in. Time to see if this greenhorn can dance around the SHAME pit y'all are climbing out of and come out alive, or even win - like hell I will.
Good luck everyone.
No promise on that, I've barely midway through planning
I may or may not join in the near future
I'm sorry but what you ask is impossible
What the crap is this nonsense
I approve of Mizal's succubus tactics of luring men to their ruin.
jster02 is some OLD noob that entered a contest a long time ago and then just fucked off somewhere earning SHAME. Sort of figured he'd just be on the SHAME list permanently, but I guess he now has a chance to climb out of the pit.
Lol, I didn’t know anyone noticed my existence.
I don't suppose the hero's backstory has to STAY a mystery, does it? Is it alright if parts of it get revealed over the course of the story?
Alright then, thanks for the clarification.
I have managed to kill @Ficsean_Chef, but I'm sure I will be expected to submit a story in his place.
So be it. I announce my entry.
Hey! I am just seeing this rather late, but I want to join as well. I have an idea for a short story and have been wanting to enter one for awhile. I am hoping this post keeps me accountable and I'm able to make the dead line. If not have mercy on me while I'm in the shame pit. Also if it matters I am a christian and was raised catholic. I saw something about this in the thread 0.o
Do I sit, stand, or kneel for that? I haven't been to catholic church in awhile.
You will likely do a lot of kneeling depending on who you're in the SHAME pit with.
0.o I'm going to write literally all night now.
Put me in
I agree, its fun to have a goal not just a story idea.
It’s not too late to enter right?
6 days left to bring something of value up, 0 days since I have joined. Let the games begin (how do you submit a story to a contest, or do you just publish or something?).
KK, thanks. You seem like a nice peep, so I must ask you to answer a burning question of mine. But not here, not now. Head on over to ¨The Lounge¨ after the heat dies down. I fear for my life. Please, make haste. -White Rose
count me in the ¨working on it half¨, still in the planning stage QaQ. Best of luck. -White Rose
...not me QaQ, is it possible to submit an incompleted work and then take it down?
mizal..... you owe me a coffee, scratch that. Multiple coffees, a frappe and a smoothie. My body is gonna hate you for this.
I'll be happy if I have any life left after I'm done with ¨The Great War¨, version 2 cause the first one is a tease
Assuming no earth shattering calamities occur in the next week, most likely yes. I’m roughly 85 percent of the way done with mine, so hopefully I can get that extra 15 percent done in the next few days with enough time for some proofreading.
Fine I'll start mine. Jesus
Are we allowed to turn our story games in early? I'm pretty much finished with mine, (minus a little proofreading, which I'll probably get done tomorrow, if not tonight). I'm just going out of town over the weekend, and I don't know if I'll have WiFi, so I wanted to make sure I had my bases covered.
It would be a strange rule if you could not.
lol, you're probably right.
Took a couple years, but finally climbed out of the SHAME pit.
Yup. I forgot how nice the air smells out here.

I keep forgetting you're even still around.
I’ll have mine done and posted before the time mentioned. I thought it was a requirement to have it done last minute, so I am waiting until then. I have started it though. Good luck to all who haven’t!
I didn't get nearly as much done as I wanted to, but I'm gonna submit what I have. Be gentle
gently speaking it's probaly gonna be taken down soon. I reccomend that when it goes down you work on the meeting with clement that's bound to happen and maybe some missions you could do for the church. Indoctrinate children, help x at y location, tutor x on the teaching of Christ. You could prolly still stay true to history if you really put the effort in.
Anyways it's good work and your writing style is better than mine... QaQ
Yeah, it definitely needs more work. I didn't write nearly as much as I thought I would for insert excuses here that don't really matter.
He has to leave it up now or else he gets SHAMED.
