Ruin A Wish: Short stories

Postby Drakefriend » October 30th, 2011, 10:30 am

After Ruin A Wish was locked last time, I recreated this game. However, there were complains that the game was boring. So I decided to introduce a new rule: The format of a ruin from now on should be a story. It does not have to be long, but corrupting with a sentence is no longer wanted. In addition, the twist should be related to the wish, not some random misfortune.
However the basic rules remain: You can grant the previous wish, but it has to have a twist in it. Now you have to make a wish, which can again be granted...twistedly...and so on.
Also please remember not to make the end of the game a wish or corruption: The Moderators have made this happen for real more than once. If you think the game is at an deadend, please contact me, I will in this case function as an arbiter.
Examples of what I think were good curroption stories from the previous run:
"I wish for a 12 quart copper bowl"
"I wish I could make Wesnoth campaigns through thought only, and so have them immediately ready, complete, not warped, in the add-on list as soon as I think the storyline... and everyone will download and appreciate them. Ah, I have infinite fantasy also... ^^"
"I wish I wasn't hurt by fire."
"I wish I could travel more."

So wait, you're calling me an idiot? :| I am offended by that.

I understand you may be upset that the last thread was locked, but my last wish was perfectly within the rules given for the game in the last thread. Yes, I knew it would cause problems, which is why I said it could be ignored.

That does not give you grounds to insult me.

Well, actually it was rather about it being continued, even after you told us to ignore it. I apologize if you feel offended by my choice of words.

Come on... we had 50+ pages of this. Let's think up something new and exciting that we don't already know how to "win".

And yeah let's watch it when we're throwing around words like "idiot". :hmm:

Ok. A new rule to make it more interesting: Changing the formate
Ruin the wish preferably with a short story, not a single sentence
So, not "Granted, but X happens.", but a story describing HOW X happens.

Does that sound better? (I also liked those long ones best.)

Also, there is no "winning", and winning is not the point of the game. If you find a wish no one can ruin (and the fatal wish was ruined very horribly), you have not won, but actually, it is more like everyone losing.

My wish still is to be able to watch The Future Is Wild and to listen to its title song whenever I want to.

PS: Also, please keep the answer related to the wish, don't let random misfortune come over the wishing one.
PPS: And on the idiotic wish, I meant that it was continued when it was really no longer funny and after you allowed us to ignore it (which I think was really a good reaction, sorry), and one of its iterations corruption was that the moderators would end it (what they did). Yes, I think, would I have been this night, I thiink I would have attempted to break this chain, probably refering to your comment. I am really sorry for offending you. In my rage, I wrote the things far different then what I think now.

Granted, you sing it all day, you sing all night. You sing it in your dreams. That's ok, because you're happy right? But you start failing all your
failing everything, grades, jobs etc. Later you are hungry and homeless and still listening to the song. Blind to the world. But that's ok because you're happy right?

I wish I could finish Era of three Worlds(by: Powershot) faster.

Granted.
You suddendly hear load noise. As you stand up, a man comes into your room. He is wielding a very wickedly-looking whip. He screams at you: "WILL YOU WORK ON THE ERA OF THREE WORLDS!? GET TO WORK!!!".
You work all the day, until you have enough. But as you stand up, you see that the man is still there. He shouts "NO LAZINESS, SLAVE!!!" and strikes you with his whip. Its latches are indeed horribly painful.
Even as you want to go to sleep. the man will not get youn go. He instead forcefeeds you a mixture of coffeine, coca and lots of other, far more bizarre stuff that allows you to keep awake for all night.
As the man did never give you a break, you finish the Era of Three Worlds within a number of days far smaller than the amount you would have needed if you had only worked for a part of a day. But the hard time of emotional and physical abuse the man subjected you to broke you, and after you upload the era with all what is left of your strength, you expire.

I wish to archieve divinity, so I can be there to see what happens in even the places in time and space most distant to us.

Granted, but these most distant places have things you can't imagine.
Really un modest, crazy, bizzare, odd, things you would never want to look at.
Eventually you shudder at every sound, every time you look at someone you imagine what you saw.
BAM!

I wish for a funny life.(funny to me.)

Begging for mercy is unlikely to have an effect on us, the people who actually have to run the forums and keep them orderly, or the people who have to pay for the hosting, who are clearly not you. If we decide something should be locked or deleted, we will lock or delete it regardless of your pleas.

Also, your defensive attitude is hilarious.

I changed the first post, which now tells the rules.
How can I link to a specific post? I would like to link to some of my favorite posts to give examples how such a corruption story might look like.

like so: viewtopic.php?f=61&t=33082&start=767

instead of putting 765, I put 767, and it goes to the right post.

I wish you would answer my wish(if you ruin it, then you will only have to reply to one of them. Hint Hint...)
