As of 10/2/2018:

Let's see if I can make something good for the contest. Hopefully, I can.

If you want to know more about me, send me a PM. Anyway, I'm fairly nice but my writing abilities are less than superb. Still, that's not stopping me from improving!

Please rate my storygames, especially Solstice, No Quarter, Darius, and The Duet. My goal is to eventually have one over 100 ratings. Thank you!

 



QUOTES!
1. Mayana: "Wibn, your anime story is so bad that it'll give Leora depression when she reads it, turning her into a younger Myn."
2. Mayana (again): "Useful in depth advice? Hah. If I could give useful advice, then Wibn's anime story wouldn't exist because I'd advise him not to write it."
3. Steve: "Wibbons, you're such a raging, closeted faggot that you're super pathetic, and thus, I can't even hate you and hope you learn to love the little girl inside you."
4. Ebon: "Just get good wibn."
5. Ebon (again): "I don't know either tbh. For some reason wibn pisses me off an absurd amount"
6. Corgi: "And apparently wibns has whored himself out in exchange for getting lashed in the nuts via whip?"
7. Chris: "'I don't play video games. sorry"' What even are you Wibn"
8. Mizal: "Wibn wants to get better at pretending not to be a teenage girl"
9. End Master: "lol wibn is straight"
10. Digit: "I'm not Wibn level religious to go and go knock on every house on the planet to talk about or lord and savior"

Storygames

4-Simplex

The barrier between impossible and possible is thin.

This is an entry for the Summer Slam contest.

You will be individually following Billy Joe, Runt, Virgil, and Slim.

Author's Notes:
Each character has their own storyline that is intertwined with the others' own storylines, so your choices will effect the paths of multiple characters simultaneously in little and big ways. A choice can have a large effect even if it does not appear to do so at first, so choose carefully. Sometimes, a character's storyline is blocked (by dying) until another character does something different. Lastly, try to be nice and try not to die, for it is very helpful to do both of those things.

Also, I am deeply grateful for Tyrannosaurusrex's beta-reading. Your imputes were very helpful. Thank you so much.


Featured Story About Darius and the Desert God

This's an entry to EndMaster's Romance Contest.

Just because I write something or a character believes in a certain belief does not mean that I endorse it. In fact, there are several actions in here that are detestable to me, but I included them anyway. Then again, there's also paths that I really like from a moral standpoint.

For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? -- Mark 8:36

Also, thank you very much to Ikiriakos for beta testing my storygame! Your input was very helpful in clearing up some rather odd things plot-wise.



EDIT: I fixed some grammatical errors. Also, Darius is a prince now instead of a crown prince due to Steve's suggestion. I made a few aesthetic adjustments as well.

Claire of Lune

This was an entry for the Chaos Contest. Now it's just here for you to enjoy.

 

A frozen winter can be akin to Hell
So listen to this story that I will tell
Crazies throw the world into Chaos today
There's no way for me to keep evil at bay

Crazies should give you fright
Especially their bite
While the men act like beasts
Wanting tomorrow's feasts


Don't Hurt Me Again
This is an entry for BZ's Creatures of the Night Contest. There are two different kinds of monsters. One is a monster because of what they are, like vampires or zombies. Others are monsters because of what they do. They wear human flesh, but they are not human.

Life as a Time Traveler

Steve is a time traveler, but he is not a superhero. He does not use his powers for battling evil or being evil. In fact, he does not even know what to do with his gloomy and crumbling life.  Perhaps today things will be different. Perhaps today his present and future will be saved by... quite a special person.

Author's Note: The endings depend on Steve's previous decisions. There is one special ending found half way through the game, one sad ending, two real endings that are found at the end, and the true epilogue that is the best ending. (The best ending has Stephanie in it in case you are wondering.)


Neon Genesis Evangelion
This is a what-if fanfiction for Neon Genesis Evangelion. If you want a guide on making the right choices, click this link.

Things you need to know:

The creatures called Angels are "monsters" that intended to cause the Third Impact to destroy humanity. They would unite with the original Angel in NERV's lowest level of their base in Tokyo-3. They are not heavenly angels.

Evangelion units are giant cyborgs grown from the DNA of the first Angels. They were built by the paramilitary organization NERV who combats the Angels with their pilots all of whom are (by necessity) fourteen since Second Impact occured fourteen years ago.

Rei Ayanami is the First Child: pilot for Eva unit 00. She recently died… sorta. Rei is not normal to say the least.

Asuka Langley is the Second Child: pilot for Eva unit 02. She lost the will to live and is now in the hospital after being suicidal and depressed.

Shinji Ikari is the Third Child: pilot for Eva unit 01 and the son of Gendo (the secretive, asshole leader of NERV). He just killed the final Angel who happened to be his new best friend. Now, he's depressed as well.

Description:
Kaworu, the final angel, died. All is set to start Instrumentality; however, Gendo realizes Rei's rebellious nature and delays both NERV and SEELE. With both sides manipulating for their own benefits, it leaves the pilots with more time. Their world, bodies, and minds are broken. Could Shinji, Asuka, and Rei heal before it is too late or will they only hurt each other more?

Now, I thank my amazing beta.

Mayana, you are the best beta reader ever. Without a doubt, this storygame would be horrible without your help. You found countless errors, made me change countless awkwardly worded sections, and had me clarify parts. In all, you read way over 100,000 words diligently. You countless hours of toil has helped this storygame improve immensely.

Maya, you went above and beyond what anyone could expect of a beta. You have my dearest thanks and gratitude.

No Quarter

This is a fan fiction of Led Zeppelin's song "No Quarter".

********************
*************************
********************

It is also an entry for the New Frontier Contest.


Solstice

This is part of the School Based storygame contest.

This is Lawrence's final few days at Hawthorn School. Things become... memorable.

There is also an indirect sequel to one of the endings (the one with the highest point value). Here it is.

EDIT:
After two years, I want through and made a few slight changes. I polished a few things and made several grammar and spelling corrections.


The Carnival, Ginny, and I

This is the story of Ginny and Ethan's times at the carnival. As the years pass, can Ginny and Ethan's friendship continue or will their paths no longer intertwine? Will Ethan overcome his avid dislike of roller coasters?

Can their friendship bloom into something greater?

EDIT:
Okay, after viewing the comments, I too realized the massive error I had created in the original ending. Thank you Briar Rose, Bucky, and Steve24833 for you comments. I truly mean that. In fact, I burst out laughing (at my story) when I read the comments,especially Briar Roses. Thank you.

Now, there are two endings. The first is the original (with a few small changes), and the new one is much different from the other one. (They also wrote to each other because this story took place before the internet became widely public.)


The Duet
This's an indirect sequel to my storygame Solstice. You don't need to play it to understand this one. I did have fun writing this. I've been meaning to return to Hawthorn School for nearly two years.

You never got along with her well. Cerise acts very abrasive. For the past few weeks, she's been raving about the talent show for your middle school. It's a big deal. Parents come in to see their kids perform, a rare opportunity to show off when you hardly ever see them. And Cerise likes to show off, a lot. The day before the talent show, you're confused. Why is she hiding behind a tree crying?

If you're wondering what the piece Jesus bleibet meine Freude sounds like when it's mentioned in the story, here's an audio file.


EDIT: I fixed the grammar errors that I could find. Also, the jacket choice does matter. One of them opens up a choice for you later on that wouldn't be there otherwise.

EDIT #2: I had a hilariously unfortunate error. Essentially, I had a wrong link that caused 60% of the story to be skipped yet still seemed logical enough to not throw off the readers. Shoot. Well, that's fixed now.

Waiting for the (Trump) Train

Alternate title: WIBN Parodies Annoying Stuff

TRIGGER WARNING: If you personally know Trump, have ever heard of Trump, know anybody who knows Trump, know anybody who has ever heard of Trump, or has political beliefs of any kind, please do not play.

None of your choices have any effect. If you do see a choice having an effect, then you must be clearly wrong. Heck, it isn't like this is a site where you can choose your own story or anything.

The story is told though you own choices. Don't argue with me. Your choices have no meaning, but the entire storygame is told through your choices.

Also, please do not comment or rate my storygame. I published it not to improve my abilities as a writer. My feelings will be hurt if you even think about commenting especially if your comments are not nice. Also, men cannot comment because sexism or something.

NGE: How to Win
unpublished
Don't bother clicking the play game link. Everything is in this description.

So, you wanna win my storygame Neon Genesis Evangelion? First, this storygame has two different types of choices. One is a bad choice that'll just get you killed. The others seem to be mostly harmless but turn out to be game changers later on.

As a general rule, take action whenever possible and try to build stronger relationships with the three pilots. To be more specific...

Choice 1: Attempt to Fix Them. I'm evil, so if you choose the other option, it won't seem to be important until the end. If you don't choose this, then you can't get the True Ending.

Choice 2: I Want to Pilot My Eva. The other one results in suicide.

Choice 3: Protect Her. About twenty pages from now, Asuka will die unless you choose this option.

Choice 4: Either one is fine. I initially planned otherwise, but I ended up really liking both. You can win after making either choice. Also, sorry. You have five links now with no choices. I feel bad about that.

Choice 5: Fabricate a Lie to Explain Asuka's Scars. Yes, that's a long title for a choice. Again, this'll matter at the end.

Choice 6: Comfort Him. Again, this one is important. It's also one of my favorite scenes of my story.

Choice 7: Pilot the Eva. You'll die in a few pages if you don't choose this.

Choice 8: No. Don't submit to Gendo. Ever.

Choice 9: Relent. Don't kill Shinji, so stop choking him.

Choice 10: She Leaves for Her... Family. This one matter to get to the true end.

Choice 11: Try to Be Nice to Rei. This'll matter at the end.

Choice 12: Feel Sympathy. This'll result in a victory in the upcoming battle.

Choice 13: Fight!. I even put an exclamation point on that one. Keep Asuka from dying, please.

Choice 14: Save My Friends. Don't let them die, okay?

Choice 15: Steal Adam. While rejecting Adam leads to an ending that I'm rather fond of (it's titles Leave and contains the words Ayanami Park), stealing Adam leads to the true end.

Choice 16: Begin Instrumentality to Revive Them. Yup, you'll do the very thing you tried to prevent the entire story. This choice will not appear unless you made the right choices for 1-15.

Choice 17: Live. Enjoy the ending. I even have a picture and Ode to Joy!

Steve finally got his mustache. Oh, and Mizal now has enough contest victories and featured storygames to qualify for her personal user trophy in that regard. Huzzah.

Congratulations to everybody who submitted. This's probably the highest percentage of successful turnouts we'll ever see. Plus, there's a crapton of great storygames that came outa this contest. I definitely consider this one of the most "successful" contests we've had (at least in the years I've been around). Oh, Ultraoverlord, I never would've expected you to do so well. Keep of the good work. Also, Flux made a pretty story that also has a great story, Cres came back from the dead, and Ogre did something (probably a *burp).

Oh, and I wrote my highest rated storygame yet. Moral of the story... child abuse is likeable on CYS?

Here's my entry. I avoided shame and wrote more in 2nd person. I wish I had more time this month. I did way less than I wanted, and I had to change the tone from what I was originally going for.

Lol, the Chinese one looks like Sulu from Star Trek.

Making kissing noises at the TV with WIBN on 10/20/2018 4:11:02 PM
lol at the change in the title. My head's back together now too. I'm not quite sure why my mind was going in the ZxT direction at that time (especially since the half plus seven rule would take five years to come into effect). I guess it's that she seemed like one of the few people not traumatized by him in season one while still being strong enough to take his bouts into emo (because frankly, he turned out really well considering his circumstances).

Oh, he did have a kid with Mai, btw. It was apparently confirmed by the creators in some expo that his daughter in Korra was also the daughter of Mai. Thanks for participating in this!

Making kissing noises at the TV with WIBN on 10/20/2018 1:40:09 AM
So, I just watched Avatar: The Last Airbender. The other day in the Discord, I was all like "I hate it." Everyone took a shit on me, so I watched it. It was good, really fantastic and funny. Watch it if you haven't. I'd bet you laugh over four hundred and ninety times. I think I did.

Ok, if you tell, I'm oddly happy. I haven't been sleeping well (or much at all) and have been working a ton. This week already pushed pass 50 hours and I'm working tomorrow too.

Ok, time to talk about the actual subject. I just figured I should talk about why I'm so loopy before I just randomly talk about this. You know? Anyway. PAIRINGS. I did a quick google, and from my unscientific investigation, I noticed that there's like twice as many Zuko x Katara as there is Aang x Katara. That got me thinking how so often that fanfic pairings are never the same as the show as much as they are the same as the show. Like, Teen Titans fanfiction seems to be drowning in BB x Rae (or Rae x anyone).

So, do you like pairings that are different that canon stuff? Do you think Batman's soul mate is Harley Quinn? Unlike a certain wholesome member of our site, I didn't think Zuko x Katara was a good idea because... why would it be a good idea? Toph x Zuko is obviously more interesting. (Him and emo chick was sorta bleh.) Plus, they didn't get to have a field trip together unlike every other major member of the team. Of course, wait till Toph is older. I'm not a weeb like Digit, you know?

So, I know this thread won't get much attention, but do you have any thoughts on pairings and do you have any funny or interesting ones you like? For example, I think pairing Mara from Rogues with the goody-two-shoes brother would be a funny thing to do if she never met the protagonist.

Also, M wanted me to make a thread while I was all fucked up in the head, so I did.

I want to start writing CYOAs on 10/20/2018 1:07:34 AM
Yes, bang your finger on your keyboard to create symbols that convey a story. Literetly, that's about it. Find some story you'd find interesting to write. I suggest you do a small one first. CYOAs have a tendency to be much larger than what you'd expect. Then, just go for it. Write it out. It doesn't have to be pretty. That's what the editing stage is for. (And do edit it to ensure grammar, a sensical plot, and to just tidy things up a bit before publishing.)

If you can't find anything interesting enough to write, then your audience would probably not find it interesting to read. Daydreaming works pretty well for me with getting story ideas. Maybe watch a show or movie, read a book, or even listen to a song that you find captivating. Stuff like that can get the creative juices flowing.

No Vampire stories? on 10/18/2018 5:31:01 PM
Blooded? Undead Persona? There's two featured vampire games on this site. Did you... idk... look around?
