A tale told in verse. A text from your sister requesting a pick up from a party leads to a night of strangeness.

Inspired by Bucky's ballad contest. Though...I wouldn't call this a ballad. I'm not sure what I'd call it, actually, other than exceedingly stupid, and fun to write.

What a delicious ending. No, uh, the pie... Not the sexy vampire man. Actually, I should say 'both pies', which I guess kind of correspond to the respective strong, independent woman you choose. Nice touch.

Also, this is the first grammatically perfect story I've come across! Thank fuck; I finally have my faith in humanity is restored. Rejoice etc. Then again, the hardened cynic in my is pointing out that this is a 3000 word virgin, but hell, it's in goddamn verse so I'm not expecting Beowulf up in here.

The writing was punchy and funny, especially the tombstones, which I thought were a nice touch to the death scenes. I did feel, however, that every so often there was a line or two that didn't fit the pace of the previous rhyme, but that's me being picky.

Overall, I like how this played with the cliche tropes of classic horror in a wholly silly, modern way.
A strong 6/8.

Not good as how NOT to get date raped but still very fun to read.

It's quite difficult to think of rhymes and keep a sort of meter, so I highly recommend reading through this humorous ballad.
I would, however, like to see more endings like the Fake Kate one. It's unfair that every mistake ends in death.

This was very entertaining and worth reading through a couple of times to see different outcomes.

It was funny and had a good-if simple flow. Mizal was good enough at gross out humor to make me lol at some of the witty one liners, but by the end it was getting a bit stale. Over-reliance on tropes made it predictable. I think one of the ways in which Mizal could've fixed this, Would have been to flip some of the plot devices on their head. For example, I think it would have been a good move to replace the werewolf with something not-cringeworthyly obvious. Double points if it lead down a false path. It kinda feels unreplayable.

I'm not the biggest fan of ballads but all in all I think Mizal did a good job, and some of the faults might just be the problems with ballads.

Great work! It took a while to get the best ending, but it was worth it!
