View Full Version : Collaborative Story - everyone contribute!

Princess Sarah suggested that Maria's fans do a collaborative story about her - every person writing one line or paragraph, which can be very funny - especially if its done partially blind.

If it works out right we could send it to her website...

So here are the RULES:

1. We start off with the first line.

Once upon a time there was a girl named Maria, and...

Then the next person makes up something to continue the story from where the last person left off.

2. The next poster could make up something like..... and she went to the tennis court where she picked up... it could be longer than this, but that's an example.
The next bit is important.

3. IMPORTANT: Do not post your full line or paragraph onto the board now. SEND YOUR FULL LINE OF STORY TO ME BY PM. Then JUST POST THE FINAL FEW WORDS OF YOUR PARAGRAPH FOR NOW as a "hook" for the next person.

Example: The 2nd poster would write and she went to the tennis court where she picked up, the poster would PM me with that line, and post on the board ONLY ...where she picked up... as a "hook" for the following writer to continue the sentence.

The 3rd poster continues from this.

At the end of the week (or how long it takes to get a good product) I will post the full lines of the story.

4. Additional Rule: No references to Andy Roddick opr other obscene topics!

Come on. Don't be shy... It's easy...
Continue the story.
PM me your continuation,
and post the last few words of your sentence here for someone else to add to...

Nah, I'm just playing with the thread, I have no story to contribute. Sorry.

hey guys to make things simpler, quote the msg that you are adding your line on to, to avoid confusion and so that there'd actually be a FLOW, however wacky. at least there'd be some sort of a grammatically accurate paragraph or something. unbold the line before yours, bold yours, so we have easier tasks of adding on to the story. here we go! i collated what we have and quite a bit doesn't match but it's fine i'll go on!

Our "Maria" Story :)
Once upon a time there was a girl named Maria, and...
...she ended up at another starbucks store, where she bought......
...full with free cupcake
... "What can I do with this?" she said.
...just don't get caught in the rain
...was the cruel witch Baba Yaga.
as beautiful as you"
Maria choked on her tootsie roll and said. "...

Remember there's a hidden part of each contribution to the story, which is sent as a PM to xan. Only the last few words of each bit are meant to be posted on this thread.

I'll continue.

[hidden]Maria sighed and said, "I wish I could do that.

yes. Shimizu. Did you read the first post?

The bits of the story on this thread are only the LAST FEW WORDS of what people have written. The full posts are sent to me by the Private Message system. and the whole story will be revealed when we finish. The last words are here so that people have something to continue, without seeing all that thwe previous person wrote.

If you try to put what's on this board together it won't make sense.

What you should have done was sent
By the time she wanted to make the picture, she noticed someone else taking her picture, she recogniced the person....it was......
to me and just posted

[hidden] she recogniced the person....it was......

on the board.

So. Now that we all know. Continue from there... Please.

Thanks, Myx. But we need some more.

I think we'll finish contribs on Friday. Then someone can write an ending, and we'll see what we've got.

Sorry I've had flu over the weekend, so haven't been on the boards.

So Chelses, have you written an end for the story? - or is the end still to be written? I haven't looked at the PMs yet. And if I'm to write the ending I don't want to read your contribution
