You harvest in the Arena. Every machine needs a function, and that is yours. Written for the Tiny 'Topia challenge.

A Stack of Cats
You are a man on a mission. The cats, they must be stacked.

A puzzling math and logic game I made just to put some of the scripting practice I've been doing to use. Have fun and please let me know if you encounter any bugs.

Should be solvable by middle schoolers, or those with same basic level of intelligence as a middle schooler.

Agent of Order
Orbiting a barren planetoid in a system full of nothing just past the edge of the frontier, The Last Outpost is just another refueling station. Strategically important, true, but on a routine stop you never expected to spend longer than a couple hours there, let alone a couple of days fighting for your life...

There are five epilogues, but some may be difficult to discover. Note that actions have consequences, but not always immediate ones. (And if you just need an End Game link, go play around with the probe.)

Facts About the Planet and the Solar System
A compilation of some little known facts about the solar system, as well as the debunking of a few myths.

In addition to the scientific explanations, there's a small story dramatizing it all.

Hopefully young readers will find this fun as well as educational. :)

(Might not be the greatest story ever written, but consider this: it got me 200 points.)

Featured Story Inseparable
It doesn't matter what they say...

Love is for the Birds
...and the squirrels. Sort of.

Written in six hours, for no other reason than to avoid consignment to the SHAME pit after my other Romance contest entry didn't want to cooperate.

Now You Gotta Deal With This S***

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.

(Don't pay any attention to the scores, they're just for me to track which endings reviewers get.)

Read My Stories or Die!












Silver Horn, Silver Hooves
When the weather is fine, you've been coming to this grove to drink from the pool for centuries now. Today, you meet a stranger and hear a story that changes all that...

A fairy tale adventure.

The King's Music Box
For Corgi's Lords of the Realms contest.

Learn the secrets of your family's power and decide what to do when it's in your hands.
(Note: Decisions may not be appearing in this version of the game, wait for the DLC.)

Another Damn Wolf Story
I have no idea why I wrote this. All I can say in my defense is that it seemed like a good idea at the ti--wait no that's a lie, I said, repeatedly that this was stupid and shameful every time I mentioned working on it.

The truth is I needed to publish something before the end of the year and there is CLEARLY a burning need for wolf stories in the psyche of children using the internet. But then they write them badly, or make their wolves behave like clans of cats. So here is a simple straightfoward story of a young wolf leaving his pack in search of a better life. Maybe no one will ever feel the need to write another one now, or if nothing else maybe this will give them ideas for how to do it in slightly more minimum-standards-meeting ways.

Final conclusion however is that writing about some dumb animal with no agency is not something I'd recommend.

Character Creator
If you don't know what this is for, then it isn't for you.

Don't Get Date Raped!
A short, educational piece. Please remain sensitive and respectful in the comment section. (I'd hate to have to report you to an admin for bullying me.)

(DO NOT READ if you're at all easily offended or lacking in a sense of humor. There's nothing graphic at all in here, but seriously, I still cannot stress it enough, this story is not for you.)

WOWSERS! Triggers ahead!

Dedicated to the good people of COG.

I think one of the keys to Ninja's success actually is that he just rolls out one feature worthy story after another without concerning himself with other people's personal pissing contests or anything weird like that.

EndMaster's Prompt Contest on 5/23/2022 2:07:17 PM
And we have reached 50 entrants, folks. Let's try for 50% on completed entries. 100% if you want to kill the judges.

How long will CYS stay up for anyway? on 5/23/2022 11:36:40 AM
CYS will always be here, but the inability to abort retards in the US may mean that in about ten years or so we'll need to build a wall.

That last lonely prompt about the dark web seems like it could be easily incorporated into a cyberpunk or other sci fi thing if people just aren't feeling anything related to the real one.

EndMaster's Prompt Contest on 5/21/2022 9:24:26 AM
New prompt: Elon Musk promises a billion dollars to the first person who can discover and identify in a line up five weird things about his dick. The race is on!

EndMaster's Prompt Contest on 5/20/2022 8:01:15 AM
It's been pointed out that this contest with its ridiculous number of entrants also marks the...21st anniversary of CYS? Or right around there somewhere. Congrats everyone, the site is now old enough to drink, unlike half its members. So with that in mind, I guess I'll offer to buy the winner some commission art from MHD (provided she's available then) or some kind of other fabulous prize.

EndMaster's Prompt Contest on 5/19/2022 12:45:00 PM
And now you too! :D This should be fun, but careful, I will RAGE DELETE one page every time I roll a 1.

Unexpected and sure to be epic. Good luck, I'm looking forward to this!

Oh this actually looks like it could be a useful organization tool. I thought it might be some kind of generator at first and was wondering what kind of despicable redditors lacked the imagination to come up with their own worlds. e: changed the thread title so this doesn't look like another I'M BACK thread.

You can get them to help with editing and ideas and whatnot, but the finished product and any potential winnings or SHAME is on you. Good luck!
