VERY IMPORTANT-- READ THIS FIRST if you want to participate! Alright, the exquisite corpse game is basically where each writer or artist makes the next piece, while only seeing the piece the previous one made. I'd like to do it with paragraphs of a story. Here's how it's to go. I will be posting the first paragraph of a story. The next person will read my paragraph, and make their own. The person after that will NOT read my paragraph, only the second person's paragraph; the fourth will read the third person's paragraph, and so on. Of course, it's really no fun if nobody ever gets to read it, so I'll go ahead and say it's alright to read the previous page of posts, once that page and two additional posts are finished. Note that a paragraph should be 3-10 sentences to avoid any one player having too little or too much influence on the story. Also, you are allowed to reread your own posts, and post multiple times, just don't reply to yourself or the person who replied to you. (So, since I'm writing the first post, I can't respond for two more posts. There have to be at least 3 players, though hopefully there will be more.) Here's the first paragraph. (please put all story paragraphs in spoilers to avoid accidental readings) Spoiler (Move your mouse to the spoiler area to reveal the content) Show Spoiler Hide Spoiler Once upon a time there was a man named Charlie. This man happened to be an absolute idiot, unfortunately for him, and when his mother (who he was still living with at the age of twenty-two) sent him to buy banana bread, he came back with a pet monkey. He decided to name his pet monkey Bobo, but of course his mother wasn't happy about having a monkey around the house and finally got up her courage to throw her son out. "Go on," she said, "see the world!" So Charlie took his pet Bobo, his trusty sword, and left town.
