Title: The Never Ending Story
Post by: Kimmie on June 27, 2010, 11:04:58 AM
Lets see if we can write the longest story ever!!

The rules are quite simple, just write a small paragraph following on from the person before you...trying as hard as you can to follow and names/places that have already been used so that the flow of the story is continuous...but of course you can be as dramatic and imaginative as you like ;)


So I shall start and you carry on :D


"Once upon a time in the Kingdom of Daventry, in the small town of Muir there lived a young girl named Alarah. She was just your average,  dreamy 17 year old farmer's daughter who longed to one day marry her Prince Charming and true love, therefore becoming a Princess.
One stormy night…"

...a mystical glowing orb sitting deep within the gloom!  :o

As Alarah looked at the orb she felt a strong urge to touch this mysterious object (against her better judgement) as she did, it began to pulsate and all of her senses were overwhelmed; Sweet music to her ears, exotic smells and the cave took on a twinkling purple hue. It suddenly all became too much for Alarah and she collapsed...

"At last, I can reveal my evil masterplan! Fools! Did you really think I followed King Graham around all that time for *fun*? I was gaining his trust! Now, finally, I can release my true power." He raised one wing with comic direness and began to speak a devilish incantation when...

...a hideous (yet strangely attractive) harpie swooped down, crying, "I will get you this time, stupid owl!" But she did not do so, for Cedric finished his incantation and shot a beam of strange dark energy at the winged creature.

"Why didn't you just do that on Harpie's Island?" Graham asked, still trying to fully grasp the whole "evil Cedric" concept.

"Because," Cedric spat back, "I knew you would save me then. But no one will save you now..."

...the serpent.

"You're not a real moat monster," she sneered. "You're just some freak from the remake!"

The serpent, saddened by the fact that he was just a product of a remake, skulked away to join the alligators in the moat. Next, Alarah...

"How dare you!" she said, "Graham saved you so many times even though all you did was pester and annoy him! Haven't you been enough of a burden on this family?"

Cedric...

...gave several hooty profanities in response (which in turn made Valanice blush ;]) and then *POOF* cedric was gone in a puff of smoke and a few singed feathers.

"I wonder if he learnt that from Chrispinophur?" remarked Valanice.

"From Mananan more likely" growled Graham. "I think some of my old enemies have been siding with each other, seemingly with old friends too" he sighed.

Suddenly...

"What happened here?" she wondered.

As her parents explained to her what had just happened, Alarah noticed that Cedric had dropped something. She crawled over to the debris he had been sitting on and picked it up. It was...
Title: Re: The Never Ending Story
Post by: Haids1987 on June 30, 2010, 03:22:51 PM
...his monocle.  Picking it up and placing it over her eye, Alarah laughed.

"Hey, look, I'm the Monopoly guy!" she yelled, flapping her arms around like a madwoman.  "Go directly to jail!"  Graham and Valanice exchanged looks.  "Alarah," said Valanice....

"Yes," Graham agreed. "If Cedric had it, it might very well be curs--"

Before he could finish his sentence...

...Alarah began to transform into an owl in a blue vest!

"Oh no!" Rosella exclaimed, "Not Cedric!"
Valanice moved to shield her child. "Yes, it seems so! He wants to create multiples of himself to annoy the entire world!"
"A nefarious scheme indeed!" Graham said, leaping into action...

...he leaped at the now fully tranformed Alarah, trying to knock the monocle off of her in hopes of reversing the process. But she flew just out of his grasp and deeper into the forest. Graham ran off after him, and Rosella and Valanice followed.

Soon, they reached a clearing by a log cabin. To their horror, hundreds of blue-vested owls had now surrounded them....
Title: Re: The Never Ending Story
Post by: Haids1987 on July 02, 2010, 02:54:38 PM
...so they sought shelter inside the cabin.

"HELPUSHELPUSHELPUS!" screamed Rosella, clawing her face in terror.  "There are hundreds of blue-vested, monocle-wearing owls outside demanding that we look out for POIsonous snakes!"  To their surprise, however, a sallow-faced young man looked up at them sadly from his seat on the bed.

"We have nothing to offer you, Sir Knight, for my wife is starving.  I fear she may die soon," says the woodcutter mournfully.  Graham scowled at him and said...

Post by: I_am_so_nifty on July 02, 2010, 04:46:35 PM

"And shouldn't you still have that magic bowl?" Valanice wondered.

The woodcutter, ignoring Graham, answered Valanice...
Title: Re: The Never Ending Story
Post by: Kimmie on July 03, 2010, 01:15:58 AM
"An owl came in and stole it from my hands, now we've been forced to eat vegetables and my wife is wasting away!" weeped the Woodcutter

"Hardly!" Snorted Rosella looking at the rather obese lady lying on the bed

Suddenly a though occured to Graham "THE BOWL, OF COURSE!...Take the "B" away from Bowl and what do you get?"

"OWL! Oh my, Cedric has been cloning himself with the magic bowl" gasped Valanice!

Suddenly a noise caught their attention...

...and they were startled out of their conversation with the starving woodcutter and his wife.  To their utter horror, the monocled faces of dozens of blue-vested owls appeared at the window, pecking at it madly.  As everyone watched in terror, the woodcutter's wife (whose name was Maud) raised her head from her pillow and said...

Post by: Kimmie on July 04, 2010, 06:31:32 AM
"FOOOOOOD!"

Miraculously she heaved herself out of the bed and ran at the door, knocking many of the clone-cedrics flying into the air in a cloud of feathers. Like a demon she devoured several of the feathered critters before anyone could stop her and before long, there were only a handful left.

"Well that's cleared up that problem, looks like Cedrics army has been taken care of" chuckled Graham

Meanwhile, feeling somewhat ignored, Alarah...

...who had transformed back into herself when Maud knocked the monocle off her in her owl-feasting frenzy, walked back into the hut.

Trying to clear things up, Alarah asked the King and Queen, "Why were you swimming in the lake?"

"Well," Valanice answered...

..."Alexander's been getting on everyone's nerves now that he's a king. Letting it go to his head and all that. Last time we went swimming he got kidnapped, so we were hoping it would happen again and bring him down a notch."

"To be fair," Graham added, "It was Cassima's idea."

Alarah....
Title: Re: The Never Ending Story
Post by: Haids1987 on July 04, 2010, 12:09:14 PM
...looked at them in horror.  "Who's this Cassima person?" she asked suspiciously, narrowing her eyes.  Rosella stared at her in amusement.

"Seriously?" she asked.  "She's Alexander's wife!"  Alarah's mouth dropped open in astonishment.  "WIFE?!" she screamed.  "He's married?!"  Valanice rolled her eyes.  "Where have you been?" she asked.  "It happened like three games ago!"

Rolling up her sleeve, Alarah showed them the tattoo emblazoned all down her arm, the word "ALEXANDER" prevalent in bright red ink.

"I WAS SUPPOSED TO MARRY HIM!" she screamed.  Graham, who had been silent all this time...
Title: Re: The Never Ending Story
Post by: I_am_so_nifty on July 06, 2010, 06:45:53 PM
...decided to make a mental note to help the woodcutter later and then bid them farewell. "I promise I will retrieve that bowl, if I can. If you are in need of food, and can make it, you are welcome to come to the castle for dinner."

The woodcutter thanked him for this. As they departed from the cabin, Valanice turned to Alarah. "We'll be heading to the castle. On the way, why don't you explain this whole ordeal with Alexander."

Alarah nodded, "Well," she began...

...when I first met him he went by the name of Alejandro and he was so completely out of it, he was talking Gaga-Giberish, he must have hit his head really hard during the shipwreck.

I was working on the Isle of the beast at the time and we got to know each other from his island-snooping habbits. He'd be gone for days at a time and I wouldn't hear from him, now I realise he must have been with this Cassima. He said he loved me, asked me to marry him...I can't believe he was two timing me all along!  >:(

"Perhaps he has amnesia" suggested Valanice

Just then Alexander strolled around the corner...

Post by: Haids1987 on July 07, 2010, 12:56:54 PM
...with Cassima on his arm.  Alarah's face darkened and she took off running towards Alexander.  Fortunately for him, Rosella grabbed the back of Alarah's dress before she could get farther than a couple feet.

"Hold your undead flying horses, you." she said calmly.  "That's my little brother there."  Alexander looked at her in surprise.

"I thought we were twins, Rosie!" he whined.  Rosella answered...

"I was three minutes before you!"

Alexander sneered, "Yeah, well, mother always liked me best anyhow. And with good reason, I'm a king now and you're only dating a fairy!"

Rosella let go of Alarah. "You know what? Why don't you have a go after all."

"You're a two-timing trouble-monkey!" Alarah swore, "That's all you'll ever be!" With that...

...a hideously ugly baby with a Pope-like hat sitting at the doormat, hugging an equally ugly puppy who had a distinct "save me" look in his eyes.

"Uhhhh....hi?" said Alarah, rubbing her eyes to be sure that she was actually seeing what she thought.  The baby grinned toothlessly at her, a string of babble erupting from her mouth.  "Ugh enth skcn siemnw m Malicia wo usnee ncnk." 

Alarah blinked.  "Malicia?" she asked suspiciously.

The baby took her hat off, and a book came sliding out of it. Alarah picked it up and started flipping through the pages.

"Let's see...Two dulcimas raised to the degree of forty halfdulcimas, divided into equal parts by the third of a cackle of grouse geese, put over the result of ten finemackels (albeit small finemackels), stretched over the total of fifty-three and an eighth bottles of wildebeast lard...."

With this, Alarah sulked to the ground and fell asleep. Baby Malicia then crawled into the girl's house, bumbling around with her hideous dog as though she was searching for something...
