Summer 2011 Chron Challenge



  • Fine, I'll post it here :p

    These are the rules for the challenge as laid down by Selax, our illusionary Moderator:

    Challenge:
    Write a chron that is at least 200 words long (not that I'll be counting) describing a typical day in the life of Alaric, the Land King.

    Requirements:
    -Magpie must talk and act like Gollum
    -Hadrian must randomly quote Shakespeare
    -Demodocus must have laryngitis
    -Hector must have Multiple Personality Disorder
    -(optional) Emesa must speak in rhyming couplets
    -The word "doom" must be used at least five times

    It was supposed to be a typical day, but it wasn't. For some reason the Doom-makers had decreed that on this typical day, a string of atypical events would occur.

    Demodocus was visiting that day, which wasn't particularly hard, except that Landking Hall was the only place they'd accept him with laryngitis. However it was rather shocking.

    Hector ran up to his father, "Oh Father, it is dreadful, for Demodocus has acquired a bad case of laryngitis."

    Hadrian boggled at the thought exclaiming, "Alas poor Yorik!"

    "C'mon Pops, that ol' minstrel totally had it, like, coming to him, y'know?"

    Just then Magpie fell from where he was crouching near the top of the wall, "The ground hurtses us, yes my precious, hurtses us, we must throttle it!"

    Just then Emesa entered the hall from the kitchen, lamenting her doom-of-the-day, "I don't want to speak in rhyming couplets, I'd rather have six more septuplets!"

    Hector was depressed by this news & started wailing, "Doom, doom, doom, doom, doom, doom, doom, dooom, dooooom, do do-wa, do do-wa, ditty, ditty, ditty, ditty, DOOM!"

    Alaric woke with a jolt to find himself sitting on his rather uncomfortable throne, "What an odd situation, I'm glad it was only a dream."

    "DOOOOOOMMMM!!!"



  • Well, to be honest, I didn't really expect anyone to respond to the challenge and meet the requirements, so I congratulate you on doing so. An amusing story and a creative way to meet each requirement.



  • I really like this chronicle and I'm amazed with how quickly you met all those strict requirements!

    It probably helped that the requirements boiled down to: "Everyone is OoC in Landking Hall" :p
