Story time!
 
So here's how this works. I make a post about someone in a situation, and whoever posts first after me posts what he should do in this situation. Then I post that he does this action, and it leads to another situation. Thus the story keeps getting bigger and bigger, more and more things keep happening, and eventually we conquer the galaxy.

So!

A teenage boy sits at a computer in his house. However, he is bewildered, because he seems to have forgotten his name. (This is probably like the fifth time this month that this has happened.)

What is his name?...

GameKid 09-18-2012 08:05 PM

He shall call the hospital for his birth certificate and find out.
(His name is gurtrude, by the way)

DensetsuNoKaboom 09-19-2012 05:27 AM

He decides to call the hospital for his birth certificate, and discovers that his name is Gurtrude. Now he remembers why he forgot it: he hates it with a passion.

But it's his name, and now he's stuck with it.

Gurtrude is very bored today. He needs to do something fun or he will explode. What should he do?

x2495iiii 09-19-2012 11:49 AM

He will make a suit entirely out of old pairs of jeans.

He'll wear this suit in public, call himself "The Denim Defender," and fight crime.

That way, his terrible name is now his secret identity (much cooler), and no one will ever suspect the weird guy named Gurtrude is the man behind the mask.

DensetsuNoKaboom 09-19-2012 03:35 PM

Gurtrude makes a suit out of old pairs of jeans and goes out into the world to fight crime as the Denim Defender.
By a strange coincidence, he steps out into the streets of the city just in time to see a guy mugging a helpless old lady. What does he do?

BrennanWaddell 09-19-2012 07:28 PM

The Denim Defender decides that he will defend people in court, since he's weak and scrawny. He goes on to defend said mugger.

DensetsuNoKaboom 09-20-2012 05:37 AM

The Denim Defender offers his services as a lawyer to the mugger. The mugger, apparently desperate for any kind of legal help at all, accepts.
The mugger is found guilty very quickly (probably has something to do with his lawyer's strange outfit), but at least the Denim Defender gets a wad of cash from him for his legal help (all stolen from helpless old ladies, no doubt).
D.D. is now thoroughly bewildered, but happy to have a large wad of cash. What does he do?

x2495iiii 09-20-2012 10:24 AM

Since we seem to be going for an unlikable protagonist:

He should use the money to buy parts for a doomsday device, then assemble those parts in his basement.

DensetsuNoKaboom 09-20-2012 01:52 PM

D.D. (I don't feel like typing Denim Defender all the time) uses his wad of cash to buy pieces of a doomsday device from his local Doomsday Device Pieces R Us, but alas! He only has enough cash for half the pieces of the doomsday device!

Oh well. He can worry about that later. Right now he needs to set up the pieces he has.

He goes to his house, but is stopped at the door by his mother, who is angry at no longer having any old jeans, and suspicious of the large number of doomsday device pieces he is carrying. What should D.D. do?

(Hmm...The Denim Defender's Doomsday Device...I like that.)

Beans 09-20-2012 06:41 PM

The Denim Defender buys his Mom more jeans and she becomes Jeans Girl, his sidekick, and he hypnotizes her so she will help him build the Doomsday Device.

jediaction 09-20-2012 07:37 PM

They both start listening to the police radio. One day they heard there was a robbery going on at the bank two blocks from their house. They rushed down to the scene and got inside the bank before the police could show up. When the spotted the robbers, he realized that it was his old friend Benny. They used to be best friends, what should D.D. do?

DensetsuNoKaboom 09-20-2012 07:47 PM

Jediaction, who put you in charge of the story?

Oh well.

The Denim Defender and Jeans Girl beat up the robbers (including Benny), take the bank's money for themselves, and buy the rest of the pieces of the doomsday device. But before they can exit the store the police who were rushing to the scene of the robbery suddenly realize that there is a giant Doomsday Devices R Us store in the middle of the city, and that's illegal! They set the building on fire, and our heroes are stuck inside the store and have no idea whatsoever where this story is going! What will they do!?

GameKid 09-20-2012 09:12 PM

[QUOTE=jediaction;51099]Was I not supposed to?
Don't worry, i'll erase this message shortly so I don't break the flow...[/QUOTE]
You were supposed to wait until DNK posted again.
Anyway, D.D. rushes to the lazer isle, takes a lazer gun, and blows a hole in the back of the store with it. He then escapes with his sidekick, faking his death by leaving his clothes (except his underwear) in the middle of the store.

DensetsuNoKaboom 09-21-2012 05:31 AM

...Actually, I think having anybody at all being able to change the story is a better idea.


D.D. takes a laser gun, uses it to cut a hole in the wall, and escapes, leaving his...wait, what did you just tell him to do? No! No way! That's just wrong! His mother is watching! I know that anyone can add whatever they want to the story, but that's crossing the line!

...anyways, he escapes the burning store with his supply of doomsday device pieces, and returns home with Jeans Girl. But before they can get to work on the doomsday device, there's a knock on the door! Who is it?

GameKid 09-21-2012 04:15 PM

[QUOTE=DensetsuNoKaboom;51103]

[/QUOTE] Sorry about that. I didn't mean to tell him to do anything wrong, but the police would think he was dead and leave him alone.
The knock on the door is a robot from mars that claims he's from canada and wants to borrow a cup of sugar. What does D.D. say?

DensetsuNoKaboom 09-21-2012 05:10 PM

D.D. gets a cup of sugar for the robot from Mars, then resumes constructing the doomsday device with J.G.

By the way, what's this robot's name?

x2495iiii 09-21-2012 11:17 PM

Genevance.

But everyone just calls him Gene.

D.D. finishes the Doomsday Device (Hereafter called the Dx4), but there's a screw left over.

Probably a spare part.

The Dx4 looks an awful lot like a giant death ray, so D.D. aims it at a remote-controlled blimp advertising remote-controlled blimps.

He presses the fire button.

Then what?

DensetsuNoKaboom 09-22-2012 06:28 AM

A remote-controlled blimp flies out of the Dx4 and hits the remote-controlled blimp advertising remote-controlled blimps, turning it into a remote-controlled blimp advertising remote-controlled blimps that turn other things into remote-controlled blimps.

Maybe that screw was important.

Gene, walking away from D.D.'s house, hears a sound and sees the remote-controlled blimp turn the remote-controlled blimp into a remote-controlled blimp. He immediately realizes that this puts his home of Mars, and his other home of Canada, in great danger. He rushes back to D.D.'s, still carrying the cup of sugar, and knocks on the door again. What does D.D. do?

GameKid 09-22-2012 10:00 PM

D.D. thinks it's the pizza guy when gene arrives, but sadly it's just a robot from mars*Cougha cougha cough*canada. He moans in dissapointment and slams the door in gene's face. How does gene react?

DensetsuNoKaboom 09-23-2012 06:38 AM

Gene punches the door down. He then runs over to the Dx4 and tears the barrel of the gun off. In doing so, he spills his cup of sugar. What does D.D. do?

x2495iiii 09-23-2012 12:44 PM

Ha.

Sugar is the source of power for Canadian aliens.

D.D. now proceeds to pummel the now weak-as-a-schoolgirl Gene with the barrel of his precious Dx4.

When he's thoroughly pummeled, he kicks him out the door, and keeps his cup.

The door is broken, the Dx4 is now a Sawed-Off Dx4, and there's sugar on the floor.

What now?

GameKid 09-23-2012 01:08 PM

Gene calls in an army of canadian martians to get that cup of sugar from D.D.
Later, D.D. finds a fleet of martian*cougha cougha*canadian robots storming his house chanting something about sugar. What does he do?

DensetsuNoKaboom 09-23-2012 04:35 PM

D.D. begins rapidly firing the Sawed-off Dx4, causing halves of remote-controlled blimps to fly out, turning all the robots into halves of remote-controlled blimps.

All except one. Gene never goes anywhere without his Anti-Half-Of-A-Remote-Controlled-Blimp Shield, and thus is completely unharmed.

J.G. finds a screw on the ground. How dare that screw trespass on her nice, clean floor! And for that matter, what is all this sugar doing here? She pockets the screw and begins to sweep up the sugar.

A car pulls into D.D.'s driveway. It's his dad, come home from work. When he enters the house, he is visibly disturbed upon seeing his son and his wife dressed in clothes made from old jeans and wielding a doomsday device. What does everyone do?

x2495iiii 09-25-2012 09:31 AM

Dad starts laughing maniacally, jumps into his car's trunk (roomier than it looks), and comes out wearing a lab coat, big glasses, and a pointy, dark red wig.

For you see, "Dad" was merely his alter ego. He is really none other than Doctor Bloodspud, the tater experimentater!

(And his head's kinda shaped like a potato, so the name suits him)

He sees his son and wife have become supervillains, got an evil scheme going, and even have a nemesis.

He couldn't be prouder.

He reaches into the trunk and pulls out a Gatling potato gun, and fires over 10,000 Potatoes Per Minute straight at Gene.

And then...?

GameKid 09-25-2012 08:31 PM

Gene simply opens his mouth and enjoys.
But he had had too many potatoes. So gene lets it rip, causing D.D., J.G., and Doctor bloodspud's house to crash down. What does the evil trio do?

DensetsuNoKaboom 09-28-2012 08:38 PM

And by "lets it rip" we mean "fires the giant potato-powered lazor beam attached to his back", right?

Dr. Bloodspud tears said potato-powered lazor beam off of Gene's back. A potato-powered lazor beam? This has all kinds of potato-related possibilities! He loads it up with potatoes and fires at Gene.

Meanwhile, J.G. searches for D.D., who is somewhere among the rubble of the house. She only finds the TV remote, and wonders what to do with it.

And D.D. does nothing, as he is somewhere among the rubble of the house.

What happens next?

GameKid 09-29-2012 12:38 AM

J.G. Uses the remote to turn on the TV, as the home improvement shows were on. The half-broken television sputters and barely manages to display a couple of dudes hammering at the walls.
Gene, his weakness being the lack of sugar and potato-powered laser beams, collapses on the ground. His face suddenly pops out, revealing the tiny little martian*Cough*canadian inside the android. He runs screaming like a little girl.
D.D. Hears the home improvement show. Foambob circlepants was scheduled at the same time on a different channel! He immediately bolts from under the rubble, rolls sideways like some sort of super spy, and takes a leap for the remote.
What does doctor bloodspud do while they're wrestling over the remote?

DensetsuNoKaboom 09-29-2012 06:56 AM

Even the spambots love this story.


Doctor Bloodspud calmly takes the remote from them and reprograms it. It is now a Blimp-Controlled Remote, useful for controlling and being controlled by remote-controlled blimps. Suddenly realizing that this has nothing to do with potatoes, he takes a potato and sticks it on the end, making it a Blimp-Controlled Remote With a Potato On the End.

D.D. takes this moment of calm as an opportunity to reattach the barrel of the Dx4. He then proceeds to look for the screw that was missing.

J.G.'s TV-watching time is interrupted by D.D. asking for a screw. She removes the screw she found earlier from her pocket and gives it to him.

Except she doesn't. The screw is no longer in her pocket. Where is that screw? And for that matter, where has our Canadian Martian friend gotten to?

GameKid 09-30-2012 12:56 PM

Gene, who was quite a fast runner out of that clunky robot suit, dashes to a grocery store. He finds an isle.
The sugar isle.
He indulges himself in all the sugar he can get, and after he does, he becomes a towering, fire-breathing, godzilla-esque monster, and goes stomping for D.D.'s house, seeking revenge.
Meanwhile, D.D. spots some sort of weird, deranged version of godzilla in the distance, getting closer and closer.
What does the diabolical crew do?

DensetsuNoKaboom 10-02-2012 02:59 PM

Come on, guys. It only takes five minutes to come up with a silly bit of story, and anyone can post. So please do. It doesn't matter how weird, silly, or even (gasp!) serious you make it, as long as you make it.


Genezilla marches toward the remains of D.D.'s house, when suddenly he steps on a screw that was lying on the ground. He roars in pain.

Dr. B. attempts to use his Blimp-Controlled Remote to control some Remote-Controlled Blimps to attack Genezilla. Unfortunately, he does not have a blimp with which to control the remote, so instead he dual-wields his potato gatling gun and his new potato-powered lazor beam. The combination hurts Genezilla less than the screw he stepped on did.

D.D. and J.G. are terrified by Genezilla's roar, so they rush over to their next-door neighbor's house and knock on the door. Who answers it?

DensetsuNoKaboom 10-13-2012 02:02 PM

As the dreaded Genezilla lunged forward, escape for D.D. and his family seemed impossible.

Then suddenly the topic suffered a fatal heart attack!

The cartoon peril was no more.

David B 10-13-2012 07:19 PM

Genezilla goes in for an attack, but D.D. and his family do escape! Well, they all do, except for D.D. who takes the attack for his family. (I am in a mood for depressing stories today.) D.D. takes the attack by firing a machine gun at Genezilla, and Genezilla is not harmed by it at all...instead, Genezilla bends the oddly long barrel that this particular machine gun has around towards D.D. All this time, D.D. was holding in the trigger, and because the barrel is bent around towards him, he shoots himself.

DensetsuNoKaboom 10-13-2012 07:37 PM

Ehm...have you read the story so far?

Anyways, I guess no one answered the door. While Dr. Bloodspud and J.G. ran for cover, D.D. shot himself with a machine gun...fortunately for him, his denim suit was so awesome all the bullets bounced off. Then Genezilla picks him up and carries him away.

Dr. Bloodspud finds a screw on the ground. Curious, he sticks it in a potato. What happens?

David B 10-14-2012 05:03 PM

[QUOTE=DensetsuNoKaboom;51297]Ehm...have you read the story so far?[/QUOTE]

I skipped most of it...I did not have the time to read all of it. I read the last 3 pages, and that was all that I had time for.

Anyway...

Dr. Bloodspud sticks the screw in the potato, and the potato explodes in his face. He does not get hurt, but he begins to question why the potato exploded. Over the next month, he starts to do various tests to see if he can get another potato to explode.

Nothing is heard of D.D. and Genezilla for a full three months, until...

GameKid 10-14-2012 10:41 PM

There is a wedding, for D.D. and gene's obese sister, blargendorf. D.D. had lost a bet.
Fifteen minutes before the wedding, doctor bloodspud and J.G. are only five miles away. What do they do?

DensetsuNoKaboom 10-21-2012 03:31 PM

While D.D. reflects on his crappy bet-making skills, Doctor Bloodspud fires up his new invention, the Potato Teleporter. He uses it to teleport a potato above Blargendorf's head, knocking her out.

D.D. sees this, realizes that this is the work of his dad, and runs out of the church.

Gene, however, is angry. He fortunately stopped being Genezilla about a week ago, but he now has a replacement android, and he blasts off after D.D.

What happens next?

GameKid 10-21-2012 08:20 PM

He grabs blargendorf's veil and places it on the potato.
Priest: "I now pronounce you man and potato!"
Suddenly gene breaks out crying. He has a soft spot for potato weddings.
D.D. then escapes with his brown, tasty bride. What does doctor bloodspud and J.G. think about this?

David B 10-23-2012 03:59 PM

Dr. Bloodspud and JG think that they should go and try to kill the potato bride, cook her, and eat her.

DensetsuNoKaboom 10-23-2012 07:23 PM

Dr. Bloodspud and J.G. rush towards D.D.'s potato bride, but Gene gets in their way. There is no way that he will allow them to destroy this new happy marriage!

D.D. holds his wife protectively. He refuses to let his family get between him and the one he loves!

The priest finds a screw lying beside his foot. Curious, he sticks it in Blargendorf's nose. What happens now?

DensetsuNoKaboom 11-04-2012 07:06 AM

I don't want this thread to die! :(
