Charbel (queez) | 2667 comments I thought this would be fun.
As a group we create our own wacky story. The way it works is by starting with an introductory sentence, and then each "author" adds one sentence in which they lead the story in whatever direction they please,as long as they base it on the previous post. The story then becomes random and wacky.
In case of several people posting simultaneously, the latest sentence would be considered.
Let's start with:

There once was a girl called Sally who read a lot of books.


message 2: by Amber (new)

Amber (amberterminatorofgoodreads) She read Different ones from Pirate Adventures and Fairy Tales to stories about Saving a Princess from a fire-breathing dragon.


message 3: by Charbel (new)

Charbel (queez) | 2667 comments Compared to all the stories she's read, reality was such a bore.


message 4: by Amber (new)

Amber (amberterminatorofgoodreads) She dreamed of going to all the places that she read about in her books to escape her current reality.


message 5: by Charbel (new)

Charbel (queez) | 2667 comments And so one day, under the cover of night, she ran away from home.


message 6: by Amber (new)

Amber (amberterminatorofgoodreads) Sally did not know where she was going, but followed the blood moon that shined above her.


message 7: by Elsbeth (last edited Apr 26, 2014 07:44AM) (new)

Elsbeth (elsbethgm) She felt wonderfully excited, and even though she had no werewolf blood, she wanted to howl at the moon!


message 8: by Amber (new)

Amber (amberterminatorofgoodreads) Its windows were cracked and spider webs covered every inch of the abandoned, decrepit building.


message 9: by Charbel (new)

Charbel (queez) | 2667 comments She followed the moon all night, until she arrived at an abandoned building.


message 10: by Charbel (last edited Apr 26, 2014 07:52AM) (new)

Charbel (queez) | 2667 comments Seems like there's been a mistake. So in order for the story to make sense I'll be proceeding from message 8

Sally couldn't help herself, her desire for adventure overtook her, and she entered the building.


message 11: by Elsbeth (new)

Elsbeth (elsbethgm) It was damp inside, but not quite dark, because the moon shone through the holes in the roof.


message 12: by Amber (new)

Amber (amberterminatorofgoodreads) What Sally didn't know was that the house she was entering was haunted.


message 13: by Elsbeth (new)

Elsbeth (elsbethgm) Two centuries ago there lived a young woman at this house, who had died some mysterious death.


message 14: by Book Ninja (new)

Book Ninja | 213 comments And now she haunted the house and won't let anyone live there. Anyone who entered the house never came back alive. Sally knew that but she was very curious and she went inside.


message 15: by Amber (new)

Amber (amberterminatorofgoodreads) As soon as she entered the house, the door slammed shut behind her.


message 16: by Charbel (new)

Charbel (queez) | 2667 comments As she walked through the deserted house the floorboards creaked; with each step came a sharp cry that made her cringe.


message 17: by Elsbeth (new)

Elsbeth (elsbethgm) A cold chill penetrated her skin.


message 18: by Elsbeth (new)

Elsbeth (elsbethgm) Shivering all over, she slowly turned the key and the door opened with a shriek.


message 19: by Gill (new)

Gill | 5720 comments Inside the room was a parrot that kept squawking 'Do you know Charbel? Do you know Charbel?'


message 20: by Charbel (new)

Charbel (queez) | 2667 comments Sally approached the parrot, but before she could get close enough it flew away reciting the same question over and over again.


message 21: by Charbel (new)

Charbel (queez) | 2667 comments As she stretched her fingers to touch the engravings, a voice behind her cried "Stop!".


message 22: by Elsbeth (new)

Elsbeth (elsbethgm) Turning around, Sally saw a handsome young man with black hair, blue eyes and a very light skin.


message 23: by Katy (new)

Katy | 422 comments Unfortunately, he was carrying a very long, silver sword.

message 26: by Katy (new)

Katy | 422 comments The parrot had returned.


message 27: by Shirley (new)

Shirley | 4177 comments In its beak it was carrying a key.


message 28: by B the BookAddict (new)

B the BookAddict (bthebookaddict) | 8315 comments Both Sally and the young man lunged for the key but this frightened the parrot causing it to suddenly swallow.


message 29: by Elsbeth (new)

Elsbeth (elsbethgm) The young man grapped the parrot by the throat, to try and force the key out.


message 30: by Elsbeth (new)

Elsbeth (elsbethgm) This startled the young man and he let go of the parrot, who gave an angry shriek and flew away.


message 31: by Gill (new)

Gill | 5720 comments As the parrot flew out through the crack in the wall, a pink light appeared.


message 32: by B the BookAddict (new)

B the BookAddict (bthebookaddict) | 8315 comments As the light grew nearer, both Sally and the young man found themselves very sleepy.


message 33: by Elsbeth (new)

Elsbeth (elsbethgm) The maiden slowly vanished into the flame, taking her two visiters with her.


message 34: by Diane S ☔ (last edited Apr 27, 2014 04:29PM) (new)

Diane S ☔ They entered a place that was filled with fog, and curious voices echoed all around them.


message 35: by Amber (new)

Amber (amberterminatorofgoodreads) The place that they had entered looked like a type of twisted wonderland.


message 36: by Charbel (new)

Charbel (queez) | 2667 comments Sally was just about to ask the young man what was going on, but when she realized he wasn'there; he had charged through this new bizarre world.


message 37: by Elsbeth (new)

Elsbeth (elsbethgm) 'John? Where are you?' she cried, realizing for the first time that he was known to her as the friendly mailman.


message 38: by Elsbeth (new)

Elsbeth (elsbethgm) Did she really just see a rabbit with a watch passing by?


message 39: by Charbel (new)

Charbel (queez) | 2667 comments The rabbit was followed by a chicken balancing a tea pot on its head.


message 40: by Elsbeth (new)

Elsbeth (elsbethgm) Very suddenly the sun was blocked; looking up, Sally saw the dark shape of a flying elephant.


message 41: by B the BookAddict (new)

B the BookAddict (bthebookaddict) | 8315 comments She was further baffled to see John sitting behind the elephant's ears.


message 42: by Amber (new)

Amber (amberterminatorofgoodreads) "Come along! It's a nice day for a deadly adventure!" He called out to her and laughed crazily.


message 43: by Diane S ☔ (new)

Diane S ☔ Why are you hiding like that? She asked. Where do we go now?


message 44: by Elsbeth (new)

Elsbeth (elsbethgm) 'I have no idea' replied John, pulling Sally behind him on the elephant, 'but hold on, Dumbo flies fast!'.


message 45: by Gill (new)

Gill | 5720 comments As Sally closed her eyes as they set off into the air, she heard a quiet scratching noise.


message 46: by B the BookAddict (new)

B the BookAddict (bthebookaddict) | 8315 comments Then she felt something moving behind the harness that saddled them to the elephant.


message 47: by Elsbeth (new)

Elsbeth (elsbethgm) 'What was that?' she startled, 'a mouse?'.


message 48: by Amber (new)

Amber (amberterminatorofgoodreads) "No. It was just the elephant scratching his butt."


message 49: by Elsbeth (last edited Apr 30, 2014 12:20AM) (new)

Elsbeth (elsbethgm) 'Yeah, well, sorry about that' said the elephant. 'When a guy has an itch, a guy has to scratch!', he giggled.


message 50: by Charbel (new)

Charbel (queez) | 2667 comments Surprised at hearing the elephant speak, Sally nearly fell off, only to be quickly rescued by John.
