As you may have seen from the general discussion thread, this is my answer to... notable
works such as My Immortal
and Half-Life: Full Life Consequences
. My goal here is to laugh my head off writing it, and then make you do the same reading it
. We'll see how it goes. There might also be a Porygon-Z involved, I'm not sure, but what is that between you and me? Let's just have some fun.
Various disclaimers and remarks:
=This story, officially, is being written for a Magikarp.
=Running character count:
Chapter One: 11292
Chapter Two: 4400
Chapter Three: 7956
Current total: 26894
=OURIGNIAL CHARCTERS DONOT STEALL!!1
=Otherwise, all characters belong to those entities to which they belong. Ma fin est mon commencement et mon commencement ma fin
=This story is not meant to insult anyone. Rest assured, I don't think that anybody
on this forum writes at this level. This is A Good Thing
. Also, this story is not meant to reflect on anyone in any way. Well, okay, maybe Tara Gillesbie. But odds are even she was doing the same thing as I am
, so not even her.
=This story is PG. Yes, PG. We'll see if constraints on the plot make the craziness even
better. This gives my story the widest possible audience as well, so there's no moral excuse not to read it. Mwahaha! Also, I have personal standards I won't violate. No, really. Really!
Please believe me?
=Here's an interesting literary/philosophical note: I am not writing as myself. The "author" of this "work," an imaginary construct in my mind— and yours, I'm sure— is an enthusiastic yet inept preteen. Let us call him... "xXxTaRaSbUlBaSHINEYSEPIHROTH2718281828xXx" or something. Any "real life" references that pop up in this thing's "author's notes" are equally as fictional as anything else in the story. Just in case you didn't already know that.
=This story will be nothing without comments. How am I going to motivate myself to write this if I don't see your reactions of fascinated horror
? So here's what I'm going to do: the whole story itself will be contained in the first post of this thread only. Each chapter will be in its own set of spoiler tags so you can navigate through it quickly. The rest of the thread... is yours. A gift from me to you.
=I am retaining the one-empty-line-between-paragraphs rule for the sake of legibility, and I won't do funny stuff with BBCode tags either. How can you "enjoy" my "prose" if you can't read it?
=I have my whole plot more or less set up already. How? Obviously, I'm plagiarizing; what else? The first person to correctly guess who
I am ripping off before I reach 40,000 characters gets a free story deal from me! Hint: since I like irony, I am ripping off actual literary
literature to write this... stuff.
=That's all. Read if you like. Grade if you dare!
