Some material may be inappropriate for persons under age 13. If this were a movie, it would probably be PG-13.

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.

I don’t even remember reading this one before, but apparently I did since I rated it. Guess it’s time to also comment on it.

Anyway, this is another one of those poetry type stories that I don’t normally like too much. This one however was funny enough to keep my attention. Plus it was for a ballad contest so that was sort of the point in the first place.

The writing itself is fine and the use of colorful description is definitely there. What probably makes this one stand out above other short stories like this was the use of the various tombstone pics. I think this is one of those cases where pics really helped the story since they contributed to the humor.

True this one isn’t the great masterpieces of the site, but its still worth a few playthroughs.

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.

I've never given an 8/8 until now. This is, without a doubt, the funniest thing I've ever read. I never thought I'd laugh as hard as I did at a bunch of tombstones. Also, I had a ton of time to kill, so I played for all twelve deaths and both good endscreens, and I'm fairly certain my entire life has just his its apex. This is a literary masterpiece. In RHYME, too. This could be a sick rap song, but could also go well with a serious British accent doing a voiceover on top of a harpsichord. This... is some classic-ass literature.

Meh, I liked the peotic verses you had, can be better plots a bit crazy but that's my opinion. I recommend you playing this game to see for yourself.

"Decides to become a fat lesbian nun" was the last thing I heard before I died. Hilarious 'ballad'. The need to forced rhymes result in some pretty funny word choices too.

"(Smooth moves.)
“M’lady,” you start, but she seems unimpressed,
In your best fedora, if only you’d dressed.
But turns out she’s all over you anyway,
And then you died. What more is there to say?{RIP} 6 of 12"

Well, this is the best tombstone I would say! ;)
