The Never Ending Story
« 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...

...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?"

...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.
