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.

SpringThing sounds like it could be fun, but I don't have time to do fun things anymore ^_^

@EndMaster you know you have a good theme when you stir pugpup onto the forums. EDIT: pugpup, be sure to come back the Friday after Thanksgiving for the one year anniversary contest in honor of the ballad contest ^_^

Teenagers already murder people. Texas is just mad the federal government won't let them send them to the chair.

Hmm, I like the core value behind that.

The teacher that wrote Lily and the Forest would like this.

Now that I have your attention. In honor of the one year anniversary of the Ballad Contest, I'm going to host a contest in December. I'm not going to be doing them monthly again any time soon though- way too busy. But I have a nice lull that month, so this will work nicely. There won't be a single theme for this one. I'm going to create a list of thematic sentences and people will chose the one they want on a first-come first-serve basis. If you pick something cool, and don't finish, End will probably punish you most harshly because you created an opportunity cost for your fellow contestants, the site in general, and the account-less readers. Just throwing this out here to gauge interest so I have an idea how many thematic lines I'll need.
