Basicaly, you write one sentence to a story and then let someone else write the next sentence until you reach an end... But, you must let someone else post before you can post again, and all members all welcome to drop in at any given time... For example:

1st person: Once upon a time there was a frog.
2nd person: His name was Garry.
1st person: Garry was not your average frog.
3rd person: He was harry all over!

The stairs creaked, the night shifted, and voices flitted from one room to the next, chilling and far away.

((I'm glad you think so XD))

Cassie shivered and continued walking through the hall, careful to be as quiet as possible.

Sarah Knitter (sarah04) | 77 comments Just as she neared the room, the floorboards beneath her creaked, filling the house with sound.

She stilled, listening for the thing that followed her, though she would be lucky to hear it coming...

Sarah Knitter (sarah04) | 77 comments As it had used a spell to conceal all sounds it made, something such a clever child should have done...

It snuck around the corner, and swallowed her whole, causing her to jump awake.


message 8: by Sarah (new)

Sarah Knitter (sarah04) | 77 comments As she awoke, sudden realizations were made as she evaluated her entire life.

Was this dream a bad omen?


message 10: by Sarah (new)

Sarah Knitter (sarah04) | 77 comments No, but yes, she was just too confused, she needed [professional] help.

Lisa (skottiesgerl) | 1 comments That's what everyone believed anyway, but she knew something everyone else did not; she was special.

((Nice touch, Lisa!))

Her dreams were anything but fake.


message 13: by Peter (new)

Peter Gascoine Michael awoke to the digital alarm going off. He rolled over to see that Cassie was already lying awake drenched in perspiration, ignoring the alarm clock.

Elizabeth  Hefty (elizabeth_hefty) | 1 comments But was it Cassie? Something felt...off.

Darkling Daath (darklingdaath) | 17 comments Then she realized maybe she wasn’t awake or the dream was part of the reality

A large shadow in the corner of the room had begun to shift and, as it did, the alarm's shrill laughter became garbled, laced with static, the noise like a hundred nats taking to the early morning air.


message 17: by Kimberly (new)

Kimberly Brown (guardianwolfkim) Howling, high pitched and mournful added to the cacophony of noise, but soon began to drown out all else.

As the shadow twisted, Cassie could see that it was not a shadow at all but that thing: looming out of the darkness, so tall that it stood hunched over, bent like an ancient willow, it's blank, smooth face staring down at her, it's spider-like fingers moving to caress her terrified visage, frozen by the icy waters of fear.

((I have no clue where this will take us, but this story is making me laugh... I'm enjoying this very much ^-^ It's nice to see so many free-floating ideas...))


message 19: by Darkling (new)

Darkling Daath (darklingdaath) | 17 comments And while she was feeling those terrible fingers two blinden and injected in blood eyes started at her and some kind of aberrant whispering said something that was forever buried for the memory of cassie

Dan "You brought this upon yourself--remember?"

But she could not remember, though something nagged at the back of her mind as she stared at the creature's blank, ivory facade that seemed to twist and shift before her, like old bandages run through with hundreds of crawling worms.

Arwen | 4 comments But then she searched her petrified mind. Perhaps she did bring this upon herself. Had she created this demon?
