IF Comp ’13 – Michael Thomét’s The House at the End of Rosewood Street!

October 23, 2013

Michael Thomét, of course, is best known for his Industrial Revolution-era bentwood chairs.  Wait, no, I’m thinking of Michael Thonet.  Michael Thomét is an elfin ghost that lives in your skull.

IF Comp ’13 – Will Hines’ Further!

October 23, 2013

You are a collection of energy loosely held. You are an echo of a person. Something holds you here.
Yeah, I get that a lot.

IF Comp ’13 – Hanon Ondricek’s Final Girl!

October 23, 2013

Everyone is dead. You are still alive. The Skull Lake Stalker might have a trick or two left up his sleeve. Will you survive the last reel of the movie?

Requires a free StoryNexus account (Fallen London).

I’m a bit shirty about having to register a StoryNexus account, but the process was not difficult, so fuck it.  Let’s see how we fare against the Skull Lake Stalker.  (My best guess:  terribly.)

Cats Having Sex With Dogs

October 18, 2013

Okay, so it’s just the one cat, and the one dog.  I didn’t really feel like googleimaging too hard and I figured no one else really wanted me to either.

[This is probably gonna be NSFW.]

IF Comp ’13 – Emily Boegheim & Ryan Veeder’s Robin & Orchid!

October 18, 2013

Ryan: oh speaking of the comp, JENNI

me: yeah?

Ryan: I have this urge to pointedly demand eye contact with you
but that doesn’t work

me: okay I can look at my screen in a real focused way I guess

Ryan: JENNI
I respect that you are going through the games in alphabetsy order

me: but?

Ryan: but if you don’t review robin and orchid, I’m gonna

me: okay okay I promise I will review Robin & Orchid

Ryan: YOU BETTER PROMISE

me: okay I will fuck with my OCD and do it tonight

Ryan: whoa
I didn’t ask you to break the betsy!

me: OH I’M BREAKING THE BETSY
THIS BETSY IS GONNA GET BROKEN BY ME

Ryan: everyone’s gonna think “ryan veeder used his dirt that he has on jenni to make her break the betsy”

me: oooh let them think that, that makes me sound exciting
can I post this conversation basically verbatim to explain why I am breaking the betsy?

Ryan: hey it makes me sound exciting too, if somewhat evil
yeah but don’t post the part where we discuss whether you can post it, because that ruins the illusion

me: okay
wait but if I post that part and then the part where you say that and then the part where I say this it becomes delightfully meta
is meta still in?

Ryan: meta is still in but in this case it’s selling past the close

me: I will honor your judgment on meta

Ryan: and I will honor our understood agreement that I won’t publicize these compromising photos of you

me: the photos of me giving up part of what I want while someone else gives up part of what they want?

Ryan: those too.

me: oh good
okay brb while I go review your game, you harpy

Ryan: you can’t call a BOY a HARPY

me: I believe I just did

Ryan: NOW YOU CALLED ME A BOY

IF Comp ’13 – Iam Curio’s Dream Pieces!

October 12, 2013

You are in a dream but if you stay you’ll miss out on a great birthday!

If you like the rhyme… It’s hammer time!

What time is it if I didn’t notice the rhyme and am indifferent to it now that it has been pointed out to me?  (Snarky jerkbutt time?)

IF Comp ’13 – PaperBlurt’s Dad vs. Unicorn!

October 12, 2013

A day like many others. Dad at the BBQ – his son walking in an empty house.

Remembering what’s happened.
Disappointment fills the void between the two.

And then, a UNICORN attacks!

I can get behind this except for the oddly aggro unicorn.  Unicorns don’t just attack out of nowhere.  Unicorns are nice.  And magical and shit.  (This message was brought to you by Being A Girl in the Eighties So Yeah I Hella Know Stuff About Unicorns and Can Also Rollerskate Pretty Good.)
