I would make a dirty joke about "throwing my seed into the faces of those who oppose me," but... I couldn't think of a good punchline.

Just so everyone is aware. I may lose the story battle, but in real life I can shoot a one inch target at over 1100 meters away. I live for the pink mist. 

You may be able to beat me at telling stories, but in real life I am the survivor.

Sad but true.

lol, I wish that my savy with shoooting and killing people equated to my story telling ability. If that was the case I would give Shakespeare a run for his money.

Not that I have ever killed any one. But if you find anyone alive that says differently, you let me know.

Who goes into a belltower? That is for rookies. Real life snipers don't even let you know that someone was just sniped. You just wonder why their brains are in your lap.

LOL, I'm refreshing this page just to kick the rocky balboa all the times. This is getting serious, seriously. I'm thrilled at the culties participation in the battle royal, I'm sure I'll have a lot to learn and to give. Also happy to see Liana into this though I swear I seen Raelyn too peekabooing the forum last night but I don't see her name in the list?

I guess it's time to cut it with the girly-girl scare tactics

Also @Meaty, is that your impersonation of Vivian from The Young Ones? Awe-fucking-some.

Dakota, I don't know how you got the Rocky theme to play without me pushing play, but that was fantastic.  I open up the page and get the Rocky theme.  That is a good way to face the morning, friend!

You guys are rockin.

Or prompts that are clearly archetypal stories.

"A planet overun by apes."

"A world where a popular food source is made out of people."

"A serial killer starts committing murders based on the seven deadly sins."

"A detective who chases androids and believes that he himself may be an android".

"A clown that kills children and is your worst fears."
