Curioun, The Reader
shy, writing stories, and lurking in the shadows.
Don't give up. You never know what might come out of it.
Possible submission to End Master's Manifest Destiny Contest
It's historical because it's based on something that happened in the past, but it still happens today, just people don't seem to know about it. This is close to being a Modern because of that, which isn't one of the contest categories. This could also be edutainment, but I don't trust that I'm 100% accurate.
I might change the title.
W A R N I N G S : Animal cruelty (includes you and others of your species).
When your thoughts bully you.
Began: 19 March 2021 - Last worked on: 10 April 2021 I'm not really working on this one anymore. This story originated from pain.
Began: 18 April 2021 - Last worked on: 3 August 2021 - Endings (so far): 1
You get kidnapped by some kind of powerful entity and have to find a way to freedom, whether it be through insincere obedience, your own two fists, running away, or simple observation.
It's kind of linear so far, having only two major choices (so far) that guide the story in a different direction. But within that linearity you have multiple small choices you can make that don't affect the story much, but they do change the text you see, like if you run or fight. Those small choices will all give you the same result, but some of them have a chance to affect the future.
This is planned to be a short story. ...but I did think that about Grey Noise, which isn't turning out that way. To keep it short, I should just use this story as a test of concept.
...and now, a day later, this may be a contest entry.
This one might be a long story. Began: January 2021 - Last worked on: 26 April 2021
I'm not sure what this is yet, but I'll try to keep at least the first parts of it short so the reader can get to making choices faster. It's in a more mature category right now because I might include some violence, gore, or themes that people may be sensitive to.
There's not as much reading between choices, but there's a lot of choices.
So far I'm keeping the genders up to the reader by using they/them for (most of) the characters.
This story didn't really have a plot at first! It's forming as I write.
WARNING: May contain space machines.
10 Aug: This is actually more interesting than I've been thinking it is... The plot/story is just everywhere, though.
