What's up you superduper writing gods. I've been brainstorming this idea for a while now and today after seeing the thread 'Write a story one line at a time' I just had to jump in and do my own thing.
So, here's the idea: we try to write a story either with one or two sentences at a time but the person after the preceding must change the story's direction by adding negativity to the idea. That person will be temptation and must try and make the story sound as dumb, weird and as horrible as possible. However, the person after temptation must ignore what was done and follow the story's intended path as set by the "good guy" before him.
Here's how it might look:
"Once upon a time, there lived a beautiful princess in a kingdom in the sky."
"But she was a witch, a greedy, ugly nasty witch who wanted to cover everything in icky nasty slime because she was a complete poopey poop!"
"She longed to flee her prison surrounded by clouds and the wide blue yonder; hoping for the day when her knight in shining armor would arrive on his chariot of gold and whisk her away."
"Dream on sister! Princes don't marry trolls. Why don't ya get a paper bag and a wig and maybe you might even interest Cookie Monster!"
That was fun. You can't post consecutively (either as good or bad) and you can go all out against the MC as long as it follows the rules of this fantastic board.
All right guys, I have no idea how to begin--leave it to me and I'll start with that same princess story I did above--so, I'll leave it to you master storytellers to get the ball rolling.
