The Selected One

“You! Yes, you!”

“We have been waiting for you, oh, the Selected One. Your arrival has been prophesied since the beginning of time. Please, the infinite number of worlds of even more infinite galaxies are in a grave danger and only you, yes, only you can save them. Can save us.”

“Please, hurry!”

“What? You’re asking us, why you are not the Chosen One?”

“… that title is so last winter.” And Copyrighted by our Neighbours from a Better Story.

“So, go! Ride into the sunset with our hopes in your heart and defeat the Big Evil preying on us all!”

You are the Selected one.

Go on a heroic(?) journey, meet stuff and do people (or is it the other way around?). Be warned though: evil never rests! (And the Demo is intentionally full of No-No’s)

To play this beauty of a demo, go here.

THE LIST OF BIG NO-NO’S THAT might BE INCLUDED:

  • Being a dragon/becoming a dragon/dating a dragon?
  • Being awarded with the Pointed Stick of Bluntness™ (courtesy of @Carlos.R)
  • Building a team harem
  • ??? It’s up to you, really ???

If this develops into anything, you might also encounter:

  • More characters
  • More dragons
  • More magic
  • More races
  • More content
  • The Big Evil and its minions(?)

Reading @rinari’s What are your big no-no’s of writing? has led me to discover Terry Goodkind “suggested” by @Havenstone, and I was mightily impressed by Goodkind’s writing.

And of course, I took it as a challenge to write as disastrously as possible (to release everything, I can’t dump into my other WIP Hunter’s Sacrifice).

trying demo now :stuck_out_tongue:

DONE! NOW THATS MAH KIND OF CRAZY! I WANT MOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAR! :rofl:

That’s the Big Goal. To squeeze in as many disliked tropes as possible with a spin, of course. Might be totally unreadable at the end but … something atypical, I’d say. Maybe I could even add a poll to see which are the top 5 universally disliked traits in a story like this (or any other genre, really).

@E_RedMark

I’ll be watching.

@Takashi_Shin Well, since being overpowered right from the beginning is also one of the DON’T DO’s, I don’t see why the MC can’t be a dragon. Or become one as the story progresses.

@Carlos.R

This is brilliant! Mind if I use it?

@TrashyLollipops

Sure, why not.

@lokidemon007

Thank you.


So any suggestions as to what else could be included?

I really love the idea of writing like an anti-story. This sounds hilarious I can’t wait to see more.

This is funny so far, but can our humble everyday hero get purple eyes or silver/rainbow/purple hair as their mark of extra selectedness?

Oh God, I have been led astray, thinking of SO purely in mortal terms. My humble mind simply can’t comprehend the greatness that is the Selected One …

(In other words: colours added. Demo updated. Describing colours is hard.)

Next thing that is coming up is drumrollplease:

  • Boring Childhood ROs (does anyone even romance them?)

… what makes a character boring?
