IMAGINATIVE WRITING (A GAME FOR THE WITTY)

Hi guys. Let's play a game. It's simple, really. All it requires is one story - from all of us. Yup! We all tell a story. I start with a line, and the next person completes that with another line of his/her own choice... so we all get to create our own characters, twist and counter-twist the story to individual tastes and generally have fun... hopefully, someday we'd get to see the end of our little 'online soap opera".

Example:

Brandsurgeon: In a land very, very, far away, there lived this prince...

Minimum: ... and he was so ugly, mirrors broke under his shadow...

ellehmiceo: ... so, he resorted to wearing a mask anytime he stepped out of his castle...

Get it? Okay, let's get started. I'll go first.

Who was Sir Ivan to turn to now? When all hope seems lost and darkness seems to envelope the paper under Ivans control.

Which is mightier? The pen or the sword? How long will sheer creativity last against the seemingly overwhelming power of ghosting?

This is the story of a brave man and his journy into the great unknown of advertisement.

Suitemon and Ivan were once the best of friends. And as we all know, most enemies were once best friends.

... harmless at first glance, but when badly handled could turn into a real monster spewing out flame and poisonous deadlines. Realizing this power, Suitemon thought he could use the brief to his advantage and drive Sir Ivan and the rest of the Creatif Clan nuts and thereby take all the glory for himself. so, one day, he set a trap for the brief...

"Can we turn it into a public service ad and win some awards?" Skippy felt kinda sick and the nightmares of turning into a mushy black & white ad came back to haunt Skippy. As if things couldn't get any worse... the client's wife had a dream too. In it, she saw just the thing that could save the world...

"That was funny, pixelbomb1," they said as they stepped in where angels fear to tread. Looking at the grim faces in the room, they knew that something ominous was in the air and it had to do something with the client's wife (or pet, whatever). Could their IDEA save the world, or would the client's wife prevail? Did this call for a few cups of strong black coffee or...

As the pixels started to get tricky with the deadline pendulum swinging like a naked sword and target audience was yearning for release please, please, please, just tell us how it all ends, a creature rushed in with a whip in one hand and a stop-watch in another. It was a headless beast with thick, dinosaur skin - the creature more popularly known as Suitemon or Suitasauraus. "Is the campaign ready," he growled... and this is the historic showdown in which Sir Ivan earned his double knighthood. All he had to do was...
