I fear nothing. I'm in.
I believe in you.
This is going to be a fantastic contest.
I'm sure you'll do well.
Joining on the condition that an entire navy assembled to battle a sea beast is a form of fishing
Looking forward to it.
It's time to rid myself of the title 'double-shamed'.
I am in.
Locked, good luck escaping the pit.
I have it on good authority that Mystic already has 60k words and is working on a TV show adaptation.
I'm going to regret this. Ehhh why not. Throw me back in here, I promise I won't make a joke title anymore
I'll beat you up.
And if I win, Petros' next contest entry has to feature a gay character.
Chicken chicken, scared that I might win? Do you have so little faith in your writing skills?
it's a deal
I have no idea why I'd even consider doing this during exam season, but I need to do something other than not revising.
I may not have much of an idea yet, but I did say I would join every contest until I reach top 5. I'm in.
Sherbet, typecat, malk, Petros and Goodnight_A might want to have a word with you. But good luck!
Locked in. Good luck.
Deepthroat Circus: Twat So Wet You Could Take A Cruise On It
"Locked" as in he replied to your post so you can't edit it and back out of the contest.
I don't wanna back out
That's good since between actually making me laugh and joining a contest you potentially have the chance to raise your status around here.
Do a really good job and you might even find yourself back in the positive points.
*sob* thank you!
Fuck, I laughed.
What does this even mean??
Locked! Good luck :)
Should be interesting.
Too slow, End.
Is your age finally catching up?
Well you got my attention. I'll be judging your story.
I'll make it worth your while!
I was hoping to publish my current storygame as my first 'big' work on the site, but it may be this instead. I'm in.
Having not done a contest before and only skimmed previous contest threads, is there much discussion about the kind of storygames people have in development for these contests? Particularly for something with a prompt like this that seems to lend it self to a more mechanically complex storygame.
I want to try :DD maybe a deadline would finally push me to make a storygame
This is purely so that I can keep track of other people. But here's the list of the contestants so far.
Predictions: I'm genuinely scared of Malk, he'll definitely produce something good. Sherbet will write another tense horror story. Typecat, Anthraxus and Petros are loose cannons, can go either way. Yummy will certainly be the best planner among the whole pool.
how dare you not have any predictions for me, tsk
I don't usually bother with people who'll probably end up in the shame pit.
How dare you, I'm going to blow you away bitch
Well I did have a plan to do nothing and then panic write in the last 12 hours, but then I started writing. So now I need a new plan.
Write better than Petros. I believe in you. (It's really not because so that I have to do less to avoid shame)
Locked! Good luck on the contest!
can i have good luck
Sure, since I'll be judging yours personally as well.
In fact, you and Suranna are going to be having a surprise duel with each other.
H-HUH? How is that fair
It's not. Say goodbye to the site, Antoinette. :)
No, I'm gonna knock you on your ass. And even if I get banned, idc since my poosay will still be wetter than yours
For a moment I thought the deadline for this was June 3rd and thought everyone completely flaked on this.
I hope Mystic will come and slam you with a 300k plus masterpiece alongside a movie adaptation. (Or Petros, I have faith in you!)
I mean you already don't have to read Ant's or Suranna's since I'll be doing that.
I'll join now that I've realized it's june second not july second
kind of sitting at 2700 words and hit a bit of a motivational dead end. I know what I want to write, but at the same time I am on the edge of scrapping the idea entirely for something else I haven't even come up with yet.
I'm afraid that three days for testing won't be enough, but I'm kinda getting scared of Petros and TCat, but mainly Petros. Karmic destiny tells me that he will win and ban me from writing gay characters in future contests. And i don't know whether grammarly can handle large documents.
I still need to complete one big fight and all the endings and epilogues. Madness is creeping in.
Then i also have game art I need to finish and the best way to have the map available.
And I don't know whether I will reach my word count goal this time, perhaps I'll add an expansion later. After working at it for so long, I don't even know whether the story is any good or not anymore.
Not great. I've been trying to wrap up the one I was working on before the contest and that has drug on far longer than I expected. I'll still have something up in time, but it is going to be smaller than my original scope.
Just finished my finals, writing at top speed. Confident that I can at least finish it, even if not in good quality :))

I hope I can finish it before the deadline. Slowly panicking right now. Sanity has left me days ago. Again, I'd underestimated the endings and epilogues.
Yeah, I'm in a bad position for finishing on time as well.
Ford said he dropped out, so might as well SHAME him now.
Malk said he was dropping out. Thrown in the pit.
So Ford managed to get double SHAMED and now Malk's gotten himself triple SHAMED preventing further contest participation for himself until a special amnesty contest is held.
Good job so far.
So this was the other reason why he refused to go with my bet. Well, at least one part of my anxiety is gone.
Just remembered as an admin, he gets thrown in TARTARUS
EDIT: Nah, I got a better name for it.
I have crashed and burned on this one. There will be no way I can finish tonight. SHAME on myself for not getting my shit together for my first official contest.
Real men only admit defeat when the fight is over. I've got all night still and I'm gonna use it!
Also, I'm 99% sure Ant isn't making it either. She messaged me earlier today saying she hadn't even started it. Unless she's planning to enter Deepthroat Circus: 60 Sec Edition.
I've got a lot of stuff going on tomorrow, so I figured I'd turn it in early morning. As for Anthraxus, I figured he just had stuff to do as well.
Yeah, I have to work tomorrow, so I doubt I will have enough time to salvage it, although I can probably knock out another couple pages. Is it better to submit an unfinished or terribly truncated story, or to simply take my ashen sackcloth of shame? I do not know.
I've seen truncated stories before. If the majority of the piece is already written, I would just advice you to publish what you have and edit it after the contest is over.
Well final hours folks and since this isn't my contest I don't really care what happens. Looking forward to throwing a lot into the SHAME pit and in one case banning someone who was annoying anyway.
However, I do hope TCat manages to finish something, I would hate to have TWO daughters in the pit.
Well I guess it's time to start on my rewrite. I got a bit in before work this morning but not past the first page. Hopefully I don't get distracted.
Nevermind. I give up.
This story blows. It's not even finalized. But I've got the basic outline of what I had planned to do written out so I'm gonna use this as my last-ditch effort to not get triple-shamed. Have fun.
Lakeview of the Leviathan
Well looks like I have some reading to do.
And like I said to Suranna's mom, let's get this over with.
Wow I'm featured!
Edit: -_- life is a mistake.
Update on me; I have all my writing done. Endings are slightly rushed, but what can you do. It's now all a race to copy-paste everything, my least favorite thing to do...
I like people that include me in things, or in their things.
Yes, I will now remember to be nicer to you if there are any future interactions on this forum.
Well Suranna's story was basically one big CYStian shitpost. Might not win this contest, but if her main intention was to amuse me, then she succeeded.
Honestly if she took it down after the contest and fleshed out the bits that she obviously just rushed to complete, I'd probably raise the rating a bit.
Her mom still blows more (And better) than this story though.
Here's my entry.
Oh my god, horror AGAIN Sherbet?
I unfortunately did what I always seem to do and abandoned my more ambitious attempt about ten days or so before the deadline. Still, I'm pretty happy with what I ended up with, and it's still my longest story yet.
Good luck to those who have yet to publish!
I thought that I had enough time to do the variable and copypasta work, but fuck, I didn't expect for such a shitty headache to suddenly come up. Bad timing, bad planning yada yada. Fuck, I might be losing my bet haha. But yeah, should have taken two days to script that bastard.
A shitty thing I've written at the very last minute. I'm gonna sleep and peace out.
Arghhh, just thinking about it makes me angry. You know, having written so friggin many stuff only to get stuck in the copypasting process. Fuck. Well, good learning moment for later. Copypaste it in chunks so a sudden burst of headache won't keel you over. Fuck. I'm gonna take a nap.
Gotta post that other thing I was planning at a later date.
Have to say I'm a bit surprised by this spectacular failure since despite everything else, you've usually been able to produce in these contests.
Between this and your king apologizing for slavery, it's a dark day for the land of windmills and dikes
hey remember when you said you were going to produce a better game than me? your writing and my nothing amount to the same thing :)
Those Ever-Grinding Teeth
It is finished.
Thanks for the contest. I may reflect on my mistakes after the results are posted.
Finished! Is it a long story? No. Is it good? Nope. Am I still proud of it? I hope so. I hope you guys like reading my first published story on here. I enjoyed making it even with the constant looming deadline, that my adhd brain can't comprehend. I present to you The Cabin in the Forest. I don't know how to make it a link and I don't care enough to figure it out so here's the actual link too.
The Cabin in the Forest
I won't have my name tarnished by SHAME. If I'm going down, I'll be going down writing about an excessive amount of murder.
I certainly approve.
Alright, well I guess that's it then.
The rest of you are SHAMED.
Well in any case Suranna won her suprise mini-duel to the death with Ant, though given that it was Ant, the results were hardly surprising.
She ran off after seeing that my 'poosay' was clearly the wetter specimen.
Also, thanks for the achievement. It feels nice seeing my points doubled in one go.
Looks like I have a bunch of free points to collect; thanks procrastinators!
