I'm Chris. Currently attending Job Corps so I won't be on nearly 24/7 like I used to be. Any stories will take slightly longer to make due to limited free time and stuff. Guess I know what being an adult is like now.

Featured Story Dark Nights

The Question is back at it again in this sequel to Hard Night!

Gotham City was home to a myriad of vigilantes, and, in your personal opinion, the Huntress was the most interesting of them. So when you hear she's in trouble, of course you decide to give her a helping hand... Things escalate from there.

Second in the Questionable Tales series, a series of fanfiction storygames starring the Question. Featuring the Huntress as a guest star, Batman and the Penguin in cameos, and mentions of other Batman related characters.

Rated for violence, language, and sexual content. I make no claims of quality.

The Question, Huntress, the Batfamily, and all of Batman's villains are copyright DC Comics.

NOTE: An entry into EndMaster's 2018 unofficial romance contest.

Special Thanks to:

Tim36D - Playtesting, proofreading.
The Folks in the Villain Lair - Motivating me to write the story. Even if I didn't make it to 15k in the end.

EDIT 3/14/18: Fixed typos. Completely revamped Penguin's confrontation pages. Removed 'End of *chapter name*, start *chapter name*' links; they're just 'continue' links now. Minor additions to story, including a new page.

EDIT 3/26/18: Fixed some small mistakes that I noticed.

EDIT 4/26/18: Fixed background on title page, due to my usual image hosting site going down.


Dusty Fist

Can you get a good drink while fending off raiders?

A young martial artist visits a post-apocalyptic town in search of a drink. What happens next is up to you in this classic style CYOA inspired by the cult classic God Hand.

Special Thanks To:
Cricket - For beta reading.

Author's Notes: This is mostly just a little something I wrote for my own amusement and isn't meant to be taken seriously at all. It's written in the Time Cave format, which means that every choice leads you down a unique path instead of all that rebranching and stuff that modern interactive fiction tends to use.

With that said, leave all your common sense at the door, because it's about to get weird.


Dusty Fist 2: Electric Boogaloo

A young martial artist goes on another hilarious romp through post-apocalyptic America.

My entry for Mizal's 2019 Lone Hero Contest.

Authors Notes: This is a sequel to Dusty Fist. You don't actually need to have read the original in order to enjoy this one, as that was more of an elaborate shitpost while this... Is also an elaborate shitpost.


Hard Night

Just a regular night.

In this game, you play as the Question, Hub City's faceless protector. One night, what appears to be a normal drug bust goes south fast, and you find yourself with only two hours to live, an antidote to find, and a gang to topple.

Looks like it's just a normal night in Hub City.

First in the Questionable Tales series, a series of fanfiction games starring the Question. There's four endings not counting deaths: one bad, one bittersweet, one good, and one true ending. See if you can find them all.

The Question is copyright DC Comics. So yeah, don't sue me.

Author's Note: This game is really rough around the edges. I decided to give it a quick run through on October 4th, 2019 (over a year and a half after the original publication on February 2nd, 2018), in order to fix some minor bugs and add a "cheat code" for the infamously obtuse antidote puzzle. Hopefully, there are no more problems with the scripting and the like.

... And I ended up giving it another edit on October 8th, 2019 because I noticed another bug when replaying it. Not a major one, but still. I really didn't have my link restrictions in order at all.


Silent Night

A very questionable Christmas special.

It's Christmas in Hub City. One might expect that even criminals would take the night off, but you've learned the hard way that crime doesn't sleep. While the rest of the city is tucked into their homes in the company of loved ones, you're on the hunt in a silent city, making sure that things stay that way.

The Question is copyright DC comics. So yeah, don't sue me.

Author's Notes: Did I say I was definitely not going to write a Question fanfiction for this contest? Because what I meant was I didn't mean to but I had to squeeze something out before the contest's end. And with Christmas so fast approaching, what better than a Christmas special, eh?


TechNOIR

Noir story in a cyberpunk dystopia. Four types of endings: deaths, bad endings, good endings, and one perfect ending. See if you can find them all, it shouldn't be too hard. Endings are tracked using the score variable: zero means death, one means bad, two means good, three means perfect.

Special thanks to:
Tim36D - For listening to me ramble on about the idea, making suggestions, and writing a few pages.
ISentinelPenguinI - For playtesting.

Finally, if you notice any bugs, please PM me and I'll get to work on them as soon as I can (though I do believe they've all been worked out, can never be too sure).

UPDATE 6/20/2018: Replaced the link for the music due to the video being pulled from YouTube.
UPDATE 2/3/2019: Minor edits, original link for music is back up so I changed it back. Added the Anti-Hero tag.


Featured Story When The Music's Over
I hear a very gentle sound... Once you were the bravest hero in the land. Then, the greatest noble. Now, a washed up drunkard past his prime. But when the king asks for you to turn the tide of a war, will you accept, or cast his offer aside to walk your own path? Author's Notes: I originally intended for every single choice to branch out into a unique path, but to get this out I had to cut some of my plans short. There is minor rebranching here and there along with a few duplicate pages that have minor changes depending on how you reached those pages. On top of that, the path for accepting the king's offer is much more bare bones than I wanted it to be and is only about a third of the rest of the game's size (10k to the rest of the game's 30k). Someday, I hope to return to this story and make it the epic it deserves to be. For now, however, the game is finished. The SCORE variable doesn't indicate how good you did. It's just a way to keep track of what ending the reader got. If you play the game, please give a comment. I'd love to hear your thoughts. This game includes a writing prompt, asking the reader to continue the ending they received. It can be found here. Special Thanks: Tim36D - For being my long-suffering best friend and listening to me ramble on about this story. Thanks man. Mizal - For constantly busting my ass to get this storygame done. Boom, now it is. Shadowdrake27 - For proofreading the story. Without him, there would be many typos and grammar errors. The CYS Discord - For being there to let me ramble on about my story on the occasions that Tim wasn't. The entire CYS community - For putting up with me for 5 years now. Stay classy, you omnidirectional vitriol spewers.

Literally anything by Sabaton. No clue what it is but hearing their songs at full blast really kicks my ass into gear to write. In particular, The Last Stand is a favorite of mine (beware of sudden loudness about 17 seconds in). Shiroyama and To Hell And Back are also favorites. E: Oh, also, welcome back. Not sure if you remember me but we ran into each other once or twice way back when.

Setting is an alternate 1852 America, in a world where the supernatural exists mostly in the form of wild beasts and dark magic. Will check the paragraph and fix it up for sure. Thanks Shadow.

Posting my first page. Gib feedback pls I beg As you take a drink from your canteen and wipe the sweat from your brow, you cast a glance up at the sun high in the sky. About noon you'd reckon, maybe a bit later. Should be getting to the town before long if all goes according to plan. "Get goin', boy," you grunt, giving your horse a soft kick to the ribs. The roan gives a neigh and picks up the pace. Minnesota Territory is about as far west as you've ever gone, considering you mostly work in Pennsylvania. Most of the work out east is simple enough, a few witches, some hellhounds. Once you put down a vampire, and it was the hardest job you've ever gone on. It's hard to believe some of the stories the older folks in the order tell, of a time when monsters roamed the east freely; likewise with the stories of those who've been out as far as New Mexico Territory, who claim that the west is teeming with beasts. There's a shifting in the bushes to your right and you find yourself stopping your horse in his tracks with a yank on the reins. Sweat drips from your brow. You slide a hand closer to the holster at your hip, watching the bushes intently as they continue to rustle. When you finally lay a hand on the grip of your revolver, the rustling stops. A rabbit hops out from the bush and scurries across the trail to the underbrush on the other side. You let out a sigh, shaking your head and spurring your roan to continue. Nerves are getting to you. Then again, who could blame you? Any job puts you on edge, but this one in particular is getting to you, namely because of what they said you'd be hunting... A wendigo. Wendigo are rare and no one can quite nail down what they really are. There's too many conflicting stories from both hunters and those native to this land, and the term wendigo is slapped onto any sort of forest dwelling beast with a hunger for flesh. Some wendigo are small and thin as a blade of grass with the strength of an ox, others are grotesque buck-like beasts that walk on two legs and stand at nine feet tall. There's no real telling which sort you'll be finding until you find it. The wendigo apparently killed a man in a settlement. None of the settlers have experience hunting beasts, so they sent a rider back east to get a message to your order. Having drawn the short straw, you were the one sent out. From what you've heard, the settlement is a small place without a name, surrounded on all sides by mountains and forests. If there's one thing you know, it's that nothing good resides in the woods; if it were up to you, you'd burn down every last tree in the world so the things in the dark would have no cover. As you ride over the hill, you finally see the small settlement, which is more of a glorified camp than anything. It's in a clearing of about a half mile area, most of it comprised of tents but there's a few log cabins here and there. Smoke rises from the chimney of the largest cabin, and a few people mill about. Some men chop wood on the edge of the forest, a woman is washing clothes in a barrel in front of a tent, and a handful of children run around waving sticks at each other in the center of the settlement. It seems they're making the most of their life here, as much as they can when a bloodthirsty beast is hunting them. Nodding and taking one final drink from your canteen, you ride on down to the settlement.

In my defense for 3, I just joined a contest so space bounty hunter won't be coming for a hot minute. Sorry, Mizal.

Name is subject to change but the tenative title is Curse of the Wendigo. Yeah, yeah, it sounds like some sort of cheap horror novel, laugh it up. Originally this story was going to be a pure fantasy story, but browsing some images for inspiration gave me the idea to do a complete 180. So, what was originally set in generic fantasy land 101 has become a story set in mid 1800s America, or rather an alternate version of mid 1800s America with a supernatural twist. Beasts roam the land at night killing any humans they come across, witches terrorize anyone who ventures into their woods, and an order of monster hunters have risen to combat the things that go bump in the night. The protagonist, of course, is one such monster hunter. Called out to a settlement in Minnesota Territory, you must track down and kill a, surprise surprise, wendigo in the area that has been killing local animals and may soon move onto humans. Using your skills, you must track down and kill the beast before it can claim any lives. This is going to be an interesting challenge for me because I have literally no experience in writing something horror-oriented like this, and I want to shy away from the action and combat that a lot of my earlier stories have. The protagonist is trained to hunt monsters, yes, but still just a human with a rifle and six-shooter at the end of the day. To top off the tension that a very human protagonist brings to the table, expect more than a few descriptions of violence and gore in the story, whether you're examining the aftermath of an incident, watching it happen to someone else, or experiencing it yourself. I imagine this will be some mix of gauntlet and time cave, probably a number of branches to explore but only one or two "right" branches if it makes sense. Most will probably end in death, others the wendigo getting away. Overall though, I hope that I can craft a story that everyone can enjoy. Badaboom there's your fucking thread Bucky, expect me to do the bare minimum in keeping this updated.
