I haven't decided on a name for my storygame yet, but I generally don't choose a name until I'm about halfway done with a story so I'll keep you all updated when it comes to me. For now I'm beginning my outline. I'm excited to write a fairy tale like story, but nervous about incorporating a talking bear, an exotic fruit, a pagan festival, and a frozen river as main plot points in all paths of my story. I intend to try my best! Good luck to all the other participants!
Again, it's all about wordplay. Fruit and bear are both terms for gay people. This can just be two gay pagans who have a prophecy that when the great river freezes the world will end, and then it freezes, and everyone's worried about meteors, but then it turns out there's a bunch of homophobic barbarians on the other side of the river that can now just march across and massacre them.
Done. You're welcome.
I'm currently trying to survive dead week so writing isn't going along too well right now, but I'll definitely pick up after finals. I'm still working on mapping out the story and believe there will be two, possible three, main paths. The protagonist is a slightly insane royal traversing through a slightly insane world with the help of none other than his new companion, a bear.
That sounds adorable. "none other than his new companion, a bear"
More of a bare necessities bear.
Who cares? It's a bear! :D
Since I don't have the history to know this, I have to ask, did you have a bear as your avatar before you had that prompt assigned to you, or is the bear in honor of your prompt? :)
I had the bear avatar before the prompt because Hatter's daughter drew it for me. I wonder if Bucky added the talking bear due to my avatar, hmm.
That could be entirely possible. Either way, it's a cute bear, but I just had to know. :D
So uhhh I'm still at zero pages but I have an excuse a reason. It's finals week and uhh generic excuse. Despite my failures, I have completed the outline...somewhat. I can assure everyone that my storygame will include, but is not limited to: a slightly insane king, a horribly unfunny jester, a tigress named Mittens, and a grizzly bear with a short temper and a tall hat.
*puts a flower in the bear's hat*
I wish you luck.
*steals the bear*
Alright, so I finally wrote the first page. Cue the applause for finally starting halfway through the contest. I've also chosen a name so yay? I (probably) will call it 'A Foolish King and Noble Jester.' Kinda lame, but it does the job.
Oh no! I just realized that Spartacus' story is called The Noble Jester. Welp, I'll think of a new name, sorry Spartacus, my bad.
Uh...great minds think alike?
More like great minds think of original titles and fruit filled minds subconsciously read said titles and believe them to be an original thought of their own making.
There's a word for that, but I can't remember what it is. :)
I wonder what a fruit filled mind would feel like. Hmmm. I must ponder this.
If you want to use it go ahead, I just used that as a placeholder and it's not the final title.
So I'm still only have one page but I thought of another name so there's that.
As small as my dick.
That didn't make much sense.
What's the new title?
The Mischievous Monarch and his Merry Men. I never said it was a good title.
Ahahaha. That's a very fairy-tale-y title
"I must protest Captain; I am not a merry man."
I actually like the title. I love me some good alliteration. You could definitely do much worse.
So I actually started writing and got about halfway through my story in the last few days. There's a lot of family around so writing about insane people is keeping me sane.
Ayy. :D *highfives*
I feel you there. I often have family invasions.
I'm going to be invading my relatives' house tomorrow haha. xD
So I haven't posted in a while mostly because there's been no progress. Honestly, this extension just gave me an excuse to be even lazier than usual.
I know right. I wasted last week.
