It's Raining Again
A short story written and scripted in about four hours.

This isn't meant to be a masterpiece or an attempt at being deep. Hopefully it shows that a competent 20 page + story can be written in a weekend's time.

Contest entrants: there's no reason to garner SHAME when entering a contest on the site. Just sit down and write.

Five Endings.

The Cliche Adventures of a Generic Hero

Generic Warning - For immature  mature audiences only.

 

Author's Note

I fired the ridiculous cannon up for this one and took it up to eleven.

This project has lingered untouched in my trunk for nearly a year now. Originally intended to be a short work, it grew big and fat in my notes, and was then later locked away and ignored. Life happens. Anyway, I pulled it from the graveyard and decided to patchwork the dangling ends together. 

 

Play through the heroic or not so heroic adventures of a Cliché knight hero! There are a series of three endings for the knight that I considered canon when I first drafted the story. These unlock the first pages of what were intended to be the other hero paths of wizard, prince and spunky girl (along with some bonus troll material). If enough people enjoy the knight's story, I'd be open to reinvesting in the project and adding one or all of them on as an expansion. Each would play as its own separate story, so don't worry, there is a full and complete story in here.

 

The work, however, is raw - often intentionally so. And while the 'canon' endings unlock the bonus material, there really is no winning and losing. You just do better or worse.

 

That said, this is a fragment of the monster that lies in my notes, coming in at a little over 22k words. I feel comfortable saying there are a few chuckles in here, so I think if it brightens one person's day then it was worth publishing.

 

All comments, both mean and kind, are appreciated. Enjoy.


USA State Capitals - With Zombies!
WARNING: Contains Sexual References

A mildly disturbing result of my attempts to learn my way around the editor. I dabbled a bit in basic html as well. The game functions mostly as a USA State Capitals quiz with a simple combat element. I put in a bit of a backstory, surrounding the quiz, and something mildly disturbing may happen if you die...

While this has little literary merit; hopefully, you may learn something.

A 23:59 deadline would eliminate that confusion in the future. Doesn't matter how many times you explain that, someone will always ask. Has the added benefit of keeping an easy to see record of whether someone was late or not since the posted date would change on a late one... But I guess that matters less when you have god powers. ^_^

Just continuing the family tradition. Ha, Cersei got called out twice about not killing a brother. Sansa still sucks. Dragon breathes icy hot. Where the fuck is Ghost?

I usually use the term "waterfall" to describe such situations.

No, you're just pouting because you were factually wrong. On the second, it's going to be so long until G.R.R.M. actually finishes - if he ever does - the series that a lot of folks who started with the books are just going to accept the ending of the show as a pseudo canon. Personally, I'm at this point now. I can respect his writing process, but when you say, oh I want to have book six done by March 2016 before HBO surpasses me, and then when you still aren't going to have it done by the end of the following year, there's not much faith to be left in you. EDIT: And this is really sad because HBO threw out any pretense of telling a coherent story in lieu of hitting the fast forward button.

A Game of Thrones isn't a media made name. It's the title of the first book in the series. They just took it from there.

Endmaster doesn't write linear stories.

The bloody dragons are faster than 747s. Except when projectiles are in the air.

I like how the show took their zero fucks policy regarding space and time up to eleven.
