Here again for death or glory, on CYS there is no in between.
The Martian Rebellion
For Endmaster's Manifest Destiny contest.
The following is a depiction of true events which took place between July and September, 2262, verified as fact by the Luna-Mars United Archival Project.
(The finished version will contain two more paths and be more than twice as long, watch for it after the contest is judge. Note that this happens after major past events in the main character's life and it's meant that some of it will need to be pieced together. This is the first story in a "series" but chronologically one of the last.)

I have ate a plant based diet since I was 12, it is a lot easier than some people make it out to be. One of the few things my parents don't fight me on because it is cheaper and I'm easy to cook for. I eat just steamed broccoli with rice for supper almost every day.

Every tankie fucktard should be forced to read The Gulag Archipelago while working 15 hour days and eating a single meal of boiled potato peels until they finish. It is an important book but it's VERY difficult to get through, and I wouldn't really compare it to those other authors who were all writing fiction, this is closer to reading Holocaust survivor accounts and it just wears you down. Definitely approach with caution if you're having issues with depression.

I was mostly just venting by the way, I'm not going to leave home yet or do anything too crazy. It just becomes harder to put up with things the closer I get to freedom. I'll be moving in with some other family for college so at least that much is guaranteed. Obviously I realize there are parents out there a lot worse than mine, but it's smothering never having any time in your own head and feeling like you always have to perform for the expectations of others. It's not a matter of doing well or getting more organizing or studying harder, I learned a long time ago that's no point they'll ever be satisfied and perfecting one task only leads to having more piled on. My having any time to think or be myself at all is a thing they work to prevent, always, and it doesn't make any sense especially when I see they don't do this to my sisters. (Which I'm relieved of for their sakes.) Being yelled at and forced out of bed at 7am even on a Sunday for instance even when I make a point of having everything else done the day before. Just always being watched for any mistake is getting harder and harder to deal with, it just makes me feel jittery and almost sick and I just want to not have this kind of attention on me constantly while doing the most basic things. I'm typing this now because I snuck my phone into the bathroom, usually the morning when I brush my teeth is the best time for catching up on things online. Later after church we're going to the groceries so I'll be able to get away a bit then too. But the thing is I'm almost an adult and WHY am I having to do this? (I don't really expect answers, I'm just venting again.)
Should CYS become a business? on 12/29/2022 9:06:37 AM
I am also confused why this person would say the site is dying, I don't think that's an accurate opinion. I've looked for better authoring tools too and haven't found any. What have you used for yours? Choicescript sucks in my opinion and really limits anything you want to do to the CoG game format, and Twine requires too much coding knowledge. Adrift is the best for IF RPGs but it limits you visually as much as Choicescript and has other issues. Anyway most IF out there is still free and while I hate the Intfiction mods for the way they treated me and others here, I still respect that most people over there write what they want because they want to, we don't live in the dystopian capitalist hell reality that you seem to think we do yet. Or everyone here AND over there would already just be at Cog grasping for money.

Finally read through the thread and I'm late too, but I don't think I have a lot of useful input beyond what's already been said anyway. I'd love to have an updated editor though, one thing I've always wished for was more control visually over the games and layout without needing to know advanced HTML. Putting new page links within the text itself for instance or being able to change the location and look of the inventory window, maybe several themes themes to pick from. Maybe the volunteer coders can eventually achieve all that without needing to sell thousands of storygames though. My first game here would not have been something I'd have tried to submit to a professional business lol, but there's no other site like this to practice and learn on.
Has anyone read Six of Crows? on 12/29/2022 8:22:49 AM
This thread is three years old.
another draw thread by a non artist on 12/27/2022 8:31:52 AM
Thread still not dead. I need to see if Darius will still draw me art or if that offer has expired.

Resolution 4 is to find a worthier rival than EbonV upon my return. WHERE are all those contest games? Did he just die after all that bragging? Pathetic.

Let's all be basic and try to lose 10lbs! :P No but fr I am here at my aunt and uncle's until Jan 1st and my resolution is to find a way to move in with them. I'm lying here in bed with my phone because I can use my phone and lie in bed as long as I want without getting screamed at, and everyone just makes their own breakfast whenever they want, it's surreal that people get to actually live this way. Because my uncle is Irish my cousins have always had a happier life with more freedom and I will lose my mind or fucking kill myself if I have to go back home for good. I am serious I'm going to find out a way to become an emancipated minor, or drop out of school and become a sidewalk artist, or fuck a black girl, or fuck a black MAN, I'm going to do whatever it takes to get disowned. Resolution 2 I'm going to finish some storygames, it's maddening having this whole complete mythos with dozens of characters and 400 year timeline in my head and almost none of it is written down. When I go back to school I'm going to start writing again and I should probably review more games here too. There are some really good ones I've noticed this year that I really do want to read. Resolution 3 I would like to own some guinea pigs, but that's only if I'm able to move out. What about the rest of you?

Actually I'm not sure if this thread is for serious answers or just meming lol but I do think some of the stories are cool even if I'm not all that religious anymore. The psalms are good too, I mean just in a writing since as actual poems. My uncle always tells us that when he was in chemotherapy (he's fine now) he would read Psalm 91 every day just because it was so inspiring.
