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.
Looks like I have once again proven myself to be an incompetent shitbag.
Instead of rushing out several thousand words of incoherent nonsense, I will call it a loss and take my time to create a story actually worthy of being published.
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.
I do plan on finishing it
Here's my submission for the contest.
Guess I forget to ask to be included in the contest, although I thought I had.
Technically it's not August 18th yet so you could enter now.
I would imagine that submitting an entry would be good enough at this point, but oh well. I'm joining the contest.
Looks cool, Der; well at least the description sounds cool(although a bit short and simplistic). Let’s see how the story is.
Here's my entry. http://chooseyourstory.com/story/father-leofwine-is-dead
This is an outstanding story.
Hoping to finish up my story today. I wrote the original in 2 hours, I can finish up a branch about the same length in 12.
It is done.
Tried various fixes. Doing a PC reset now. But I suspect my machine is fucked. Doubt I can use my phone to finish but I suppose if the PC isn’t working by 2 PM I’ll try it.
I don't know if mizal was expecting so many completed entries...
She's got a lot of reading cut out for her. I've read 4 of the 7 (so far) stories, and some good stuff has been submitted.
Well, I at least hope we managed to make her reading experience a fun one.
I’m a little surprised myself at how many we’re getting, considering about half the people here we’re forced into it.
You do not know pain until you rush out a contest story that you are not proud of and the only reason for it is to avoid shame. FML
Well, what a day. What a week. My computer broke, and I figured I was fucked, because I had too much to finish not to have the full 18 or so hours left until the contest deadline (I still might be). Then, at about 5:30 PM I finally fixed it (or rather, finally figured out a way to boot in safe mode), but obviously I was never going to finish. So... I wrote another story. Started at about 6 PM, but I had no intention of procrastinating like that.
Anyway, this one loosely fits the contest requirements, IMHO, but it takes it in a direction no one else probably will (well, who knows). It does involve a lone hero, but it kind of turns the expectations on its head, since you are the villain in a lot of ways, and the lone hero, well... read it. But the best part is that it's really short!
Anyway, it ties into my last story, which will be re-uploaded this week (Witch Hunter: An Uninvited Guest), because it involves a character mentioned in a bestiary item in the storygame.
I hope you know that you continually unpublishing and republishing the story to fix stuff (which is against the rules btdubs just letting u kno bb <3) is flooding the Discord because the bot tells us everytime a new story is published.
Ughhhhhhhh here's my entry. http://chooseyourstory.com/story/morcant
So I actually may not finish, I went to publish my game and it says there are too few pages to allow it to be published (6). It is a short story with only two branches. I was going to add a third, but omitted it due to time constraints. I will add it back in, but will miss the deadline. I apologize, and accept my shame.
AAAAAND IT'S OVER! THOSE WHO SUBMITTED ARE GOOD, THE REST OF YOU FAGGOTS ARE SHAMED.
And the rest of you are SHAMED!
Even funnier, Mizal said she doesn't even give a shit about this contest anymore. Lol.
i wanted to do this one. call me the next time you do a hero story i like heros
Just pay attention to the news here. This is like the fourth contest this year. We still have one going.
what is the contest u still have going
There's no real subject in this one. It's just whatever you feel you did the best with, that was published in 2019.
F see you guys in the redemption arc.
I started mine at about 6 PM on the night (due to my PC having a meltdown). No excuses. XD. Of course, I do have little room to talk due to the whole publishing before proof reading fiasco, and then republishing only after I corrected a single grammatical error instead of finishing going through it the first, second, third, fourth, etc. edit.
I can't say I'm surprised at this, as I'm 99.9999% certain that this was Serpent fantasizing he is EndMaster raping... well, other mods.
Well darn. And I spent all this time reading through it and reviewing it, desperately trying to find something redeemable. But yes, every ending I read ends with either gay rape, attempted gay rape, regular rape, or pedophilic bestiality rape. It was also the first time I think I've ever left a review where I didn't think that the writer could possibly fix the story, short of writing an entirely different story.
And excuses of "It was rushed" don't work. Both because of the reasons the other members explained, and because Serpent waited ten days after joining the contest to even say that he was starting. This story, and situation, were both very disappointing.
Ah darn. I was going to edit my post to add that some of my disappointment stems from the fact that I believe Serpent to be capable of more than this. It just seemed like they didn't care about their work and rushed something out. It's insulting both to the reader and to themselves.
Either way, I really have been enjoying the contest entries so far. There are many unique and interesting stories here. Congratulations to everyone who submitted their work and got something in. It's a pleasure to read all of your stories.
8/8 no h8 m8 it's gr8 m8
Shut your fuck, libtard.
Haha yes it is best meme
We should make it the new permanent background for the site.
I think this is a pretty good first attempt
We all dream the dream.
Good to hear about Pug's story. It's very much worth the 4-5 hours it takes to read. A solid 8/8 in my book.
I will be pleased if any of the top three of my picks win. This was a good crop.
