This is for any writers (or coders, I suppose, if you wanted to code these) who have no ideas. It happens to everyone, and it is maddening.

So, I made this! I warn you now, if you wanted to write a normal, sane-sounding story, do not use these story starters. These are forum based, and therefore feature the ever present jumpyduckz, dank memes, and smol holes.

RULES

So basically, you choose 8 random numbers, each 1-20.
Then you open the story starter blocks and choose the option corresponding to the number you chose.
Then you can write out the story starter, including the words in between (i.e. “With his/her best friend,” “Along the way they found a(n),” and “That.”)
You can post the starters you got below, because they’re bound to be amusing.
Then you can write the corresponding story, and post it below as well.
These are mainly for fun, and will end up with highly amusing stories. If you wanted a serious story with a serious plot, you need to back slowly out of this topic, perhaps holding a chair to drive the topic and its craziness back.

Example:
Numbers- 2,7,3,12,6,6,6,13
Story starter- Once upon a time, Pingu ate a dank meme with her best friend, Caramel Puffin. Along the way they found a potato-esque homemade donut that brainwashed them with kiddie tv shows.

(The weird thing? Some of those actually connected to actual forum discussions.)

How could this go wrong? :wink:


#2

Awesome topic! I can't wait to see some crazy stories!


#3

Thanks! :DD


#4

Great topic! It's really funny, and Hopscotch related!

Here's my story:

At the beginning of time, @PopTart0219 coded a squid with her best friend, @Bananadog . Along the way they found a feathered dank meme that waged a nope war against them.

Welp.

Sorry if I got any genders/capitalization wrong!


#5

Maybe turn global edit on? So we can add things?


#6

Nice topic! :D

Here's the story I got:

A long time ago, Caramel_Puffin was spam-liked by a crouchychakin with her best friend, CreativeCoder. Along the way, they found a withered dog that gave them to the nopes.


#7

19, 5, 2, 11, 15, 9, 8, 3

After eating a smol potato, @CreativeCoder tried to find the mystic veggie with her best fren, @Anonymous. Along the way they found a deadly iguana that gave them to the Nopes.

K that is the starter here is the middle

But they were confused because @Gilbert189 is iguana squid gecko Jumpyduckz Jr. Who is a wrench. Why would an iguana give them to the Nopes?

Now for the finisher

After contemplating this for a long time @CreativeCoder finally realized it was right in front of her all along. She swiped the mystic veggie from the Nopes and ran back home with @Anonymous to eat the veggie.

The
End

:clap::clap::clap::clap::clap:
Beautiful.


Thanks @Serenity and @Mathgirl! That really means a lot to me. :DDD


Thank you for the suggestion, @William04GamerA, but I'm only a member, so I can't. Also, the sections would get unbalanced (i.e. nouns would have 24 while adjectives would only have 20, and you'd have to choose from a different range of numbers for each section, which would just be complicated). I really do appreciate the idea, but it might get confusing. :slight_smile:


#9

8, 12, 2, 16, 19, 4, 9, 20

In a galaxy far, far away, @Gilbert189 tried to find the mystic gif with his best friend @system. Along the way, they found a sacred potato that did nothing.

:000 there's no 20 in the final verb section!!! @Caramel_Puffin?

Gilbert, you traitor! XD


#10

:00000

Thanks for pointing that out! I accidentally skipped number 11... :sweat_smile:

So the sacred potato closed the drawing topic. XD


#11

Ok, I understand. Great list!


#12

#13
