    So, some of you may remember KatieElisa's story thread from over a year ago. And with the forums rebooted, I thought it might be a fun thing to try again. :p


    Basically, I will write a paragraph to a story (middle earth related cuz we're mcme), and the following post will be a paragraph long continuation of that story. I will end my paragraph mid sentence, and the following post will also end mid sentence.


    Rules, because we want democracy not Anarchy(hail helix):
    • No double posts. The point is for your part of the story to be open ended for the next post.
    • Do your best to use correct grammar. This isn't official, but bad grammar makes things terribly hard to read.
    • Keep it clean. It’s a fun story, no dirty/gruesome jokes or references.
    • Stay on topic. It's not a fanfic. And it can be as ridiculous and funny as you'd like, but at least connect your piece to the previous piece.
    • Keep it clean. -_-
    Alright, I’ll start it off as example, and whoever posts next can continue the story. (Again, you may recognize a similar start from Katie’s :p)

    What fun is it if the story has no odd plot twists? :p

    It can have plot twists, but a bunch of random, un-connected paragraphs isn't as good as things that have at least some connection to each other.
    E.g: in the last one, katie's character was walking in his halls when i made him suddenly fall through a sinkhole into an underground tunnel. Waaay later on, he ate some shrooms and had a bad trip. And even fought off some wolves in Buckland. It can go anywhere you want, just make sure it at least connects to the previous piece.

    "for stealing one of Gandalf's spell books" he said. Tom looked worried.He had never been worried before as he was peaceful and never went anywhere except, of course Gandalf's house!
    Tom instantly jumped through the window and ran swiftly down the lane outside his house and onto the Great East Road where he headed east.He ran east for so long he couldn't see any houses anywhere and he was frightened,oh, so frightened.Tom had never been so far from home and he felt it was a foolish deed he had done.He was an adult and he hadn't been so far so he was acting like a child which was of course, absurd. But he couldn't go back now. He continued eastward until...

    Spike that's really good! Especially if your English is not so strong. I really think you're a great writer!
