Create Your Own Adventure, Part 1: Awakening (contains lucid dreaming and cool shit)



If you want to become a writer, simply write a section once the voting is done (given that no one else has already called writing the section). The readers and writers will then decide whether or not you're good enough.

If someone says they're going to write next, give them 48 hours to post their section. It seems like a long time, but I think our fans are loyal enough to wait that long. Once the 48 hours has passed, the next section is up for grabs.

If you're going to write, please make a post stating so.

It's time for a decent CYOA. Most of the CYOA threads in the past year have died pretty quickly. I hope it's just due to inadequate writers and such, because these threads can be great.

Meh, that being said, let's get some background info on the story. Let's name the main character Simon. Pussy name? I think not. Whatever. He's a bored, cynical, angsty, guitar playing teenager, much like you people. So original, I know. Let's face it though, most CYOA writers don't even give their characters personalities. Every night, Simon traverses his dream world (i.e., lucid dreams, but said fancily), in order to escape the blandness and boredom of every day life, pretty much. He ain't a happy dude. But his dream world is alive. Blah blah pretentious shit, let's get on to the story.

------------------------------------------------------------------

The black night above was wavering under the lightness of its own being, and the shrouded woods below flickered in and out of existence; great mountains trembled under their own weight, and snaking between them, a dark river cut a path so deep that it may as well have been an abyssal chasm. Surrounded by the unreality was a consciousness holding it all together, a consciousness now careening past it all, feeling more alive here than it ever had in the body of its owner. The night air here was crisp and invigorating as it rushed past the consciousness, parting its false lips and breathing life into its false lungs. Every constituent smell of nature was distinguishable here, enchanting the senses - the smell of autumn on the dying leaves, the earthy smell of moss-covered logs, the cleansing scent of fresh river water. The world was awake.

Though night had fallen long ago and dawn was far off, signs of life manifested themselves in the forest below. Branches shuddered as birds skipped between them, singing; bushes rustled as rodents scurried through them; sticks and leaves cracked underneath the paws of predators and prey, stalking each other relentlessly; and sometimes, entire clusters of trees became possessed by their roots, undulating as if to the silent music of a dizzying dance. The consciousness dove in among them so that it could too partake in the dance.

It threaded dangerously quickly through the tight forest maze, breaking through even the thickest of branches with its speed; and when it seemed like the consciousness would smash into a trunk, ending its journey with a horrific collision, it simply closed its eyes and willed the tree away - It really was this easy. One second, the tree was there, advancing with alarming speed, and then it was gone, as if it hadn't existed at all. The consciousness continued jetting through the thicket.
It was its favorite place to come after a long, arduous day spent asleep. Those long and arduous days were beginning to occur more frequently, but it could not be said why. Nothing in Simon's life patterns had -

The consciousness reeled back from the thought and suddenly planted it's feet on the ground. It focused on a lone tree and placed an ephemeral hand on the bark, rough and sticky to the touch. It hadn't willed the sap there, which was odd... No, go with it. The consciousness concentrated on a single crack in the bark, gripping the tree solidly. The world stabilized itself, going from wavering and murky to steady and sharp, and with that the consciousness lifted itself off the ground and began flying again.

As if the fluctuation had never occurred, the world returned from the edge of collapse into a frenzy of life willed by the consciousness. The moon cast its white shadow into the woody valley, illuminating lightly the breath of shuddering trees, which murmured to each other through the wind with their thin foliage-covered branches. The essence of life was almost palpable in the air, like a hanging humidity, exuded by the life below. Through the mist birds could be seen scurried back and forth between branches, sometimes diving down to find feed, probably in the form of insects and such, though the consciousness had never specified. He had simply willed a natural ecological system in the valley, and it had worked. Perhaps everything but evolution was accounted for. Bears, wolves and cougars made up the top of the food chain here - humans were nowhere in sight, a very deliberate exclusion. The gears of this world would turn infinitely, so long as the consciousness still had a place to operate from.

Sunlight suddenly cut through the cloud-cover, flooding over the jagged mountaintops, splashing color onto the world below. Everything, for a moment, shone beautifully with shades from the entire visible spectrum, nature's potential reached within just a second of exposure to light.

Shit.

The flood surged and smashed through the clouds, blinding the consciousness. The world was dowsed with white. Under the cascade, the the sky melted, mountains disintegrated, trees toppled, the entire landscape was washed away, leaving the consciousness floating, awakening...

* * * *

Simon awoke with the sun glaring into his eyes. He turned over in his bed and hid under the sheets, but not without seeing that it was 8:00 AM. Fifteen minutes before his alarm for school, which started at 9 AM.

He couldn't believe he forgot to close the blinds last night. Getting woken up by the sun like that was the worst thing ever. The position of his bed with respect to the window didn't help either. He would have to shift it, one day.

The house was quiet. His mom and dad had both already left for work.

Well, 45 minutes until the bus comes. What now?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

A) Shower and all that good stuff.
B) Fap
C) Surf UG
D) Go the **** back to sleep

Takes five votes to win.

A) Shower and all that good stuff.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Simon dragged himself out of bed and walked to the bathroom. His things lay sprawled out on top of the counter without any specific pattern - Not that he had many things, anyways. A toothbrush, some fancy toothpaste which he wasn't sure did any more than regular toothpaste, a container of floss, mouthwash which wasn't used very often, deodorant, a box of Q-tips, a soap dispenser by the sink, shaving cream, and a razor which usually went unused for weeks at a time. Simon did not understand why one would need any more than this on a bathroom counter. Although his own list may have seemed long to someone, Simon had seen much, much worse.

He began to shower. One of Simon's friends, Luke, had a bathroom counter covered in cosmetics. It was almost ridiculous. Simon had almost de-friended at that moment. What a sick bastard. Who needs that many scents anyways? If it was for attracting women, wouldn't it make more sense to make use of the familiarity principle and use one scent all the time? Or would the different scents attract different types of women on different nights? Maybe Simon was over-thinking it.

Luke, I'm thinking of your scent while showering. Simon laughed, imagining Luke's face if he said that to him. He wouldn't even explain it, he'd just let him puzzle over it for a few days. He was a pretty attractive guy, though.

I must really need to masturbate, judging by that thought.

He exited the shower, dried himself off, applied deodorant, got dressed in his usual attire (jeans and a hoodie [today he chose the Strapping Young Lad - City hoodie]), and then went downstairs to pour himself some cereal.

Upon opening the ******* pantry, his eyes were drawn to the almond Oatmeal Crisp snuggled between the Cheerios and Kashi boxes. Each member of the family had their own cereal preference. His parents really did love their cereal. He thought he had seen his father eat some of his Oatmeal Crisp, once. No matter.

Hello cereal, Simon thought as he grabbed the box, I am going to eat you.

The cereal had no comment as it was poured into a bowl and doused with milk. I hope this won't affect our friendship.

The time was 8:21 AM. Still 24 minutes until the bus arrived. What now?

--------------------------------------------------------------

A) Watch porn and fap while eating cereal.
B) Surf UG while eating cereal.
C) Watch the news while eating cereal.
D) Ponder your existence while eating cereal.

Nope, never heard of it. I just googled some stuff, the main character's name is Simon. What else is similar to it?

He's a cynical angsty teenager and he also has a crazy dreamworld thing going on. Sorry, just reminded me of it
