Chaos in Red

Postby . » Mon Oct 17, 2005 11:02 pm

Okay, I'm going to need some help from people on here. Hopefully, at least 10, but I'll take what I can get.
What it is is a story told by numerous people without seeing what was written before your piece. I know you've all seen it before, but I don't care. I'll be drawing out each part of the story on a large piece of paper, using only black ink and a smattering of red. I'll send whoever participates a copy when it's done, if they want it.
To participate, all you have to do is post in here and I'll set it all up and let you know when you go and what your beginning sentence will be. What happens is the first person writes out 5 to 10 sentences (or more, I don't care, just don't make it a novel) and sends it to me through PM. I send the second person the last sentence of the first person's work. Second goes to third and so on. I draw it all out and that's it.

It'll take maybe 5 minutes of your time.

And if you do help, OBVIOUSLY, don't share what you have written with anyone. I would like it to be a random thing.

This sounds like fun. I'll try it.

I'll contribute. Don't blame me when it steers towards gay sci fi slash fic.
In fairness, we've been building 'ground zeros' near Iraqi mosques since March 2003.

Okay, we have enough to at least start. If someone else wants to join, please do. Although I don't think it'll be a problem, I am capping this at 20.
Using a number randomizer, I have the order the first people are going, additional people will just be added on to the end.

01) Eolh
02) nobody_important
03) dogmeat
04) Square
05) Gobi
06) deni
07) hobo
08) Druhim
09) GOOR
10) Kauser
11) Sporky
12) Buny
13) pablo
14) BoA
15) Smokin_Jayz
16) Rob
17) Callius
18) Token

Which means, Eolh, you're up! Send it to me when you've composed your miniature masterpiece.


If your work is just one large run-on sentence, only the last 8 words will be sent to the next person. (This is addressed to everyone.)

One more thing, if you want a copy, tell me when you send your bit of the story.
