OK, so apparently this has been going around for a while but this will be my first attempt at this kind of fill-in-the-blanks story. I’m not sure how many of these there are but I know of this one and a more recent one posted by Matthew McCurley today at Wow Insider. So let me start by backtracking a bit with this first story.
I made sure not to read the story so that when I inserted the words it would be a complete surprise so I’ll be reading it for the first time with you guys.
The original list:
- PROPER NOUN
- PLURAL NOUN
- NAME OF FAVOURITE DEAD ALLIANCE PALADIN
- PART OF THE BODY
- PAST TENSE OF BODILY FUNCTION
- ORC NAME
- EMOTION THAT YOU FEEL WHEN YOU LOSE A REALLY IMPORTANT ROLL BY 1
- FAVOURITE FARM ANIMAL
- BODILY FLUID
- TAMEABLE CREATURE
- PART OF A SHIP
- PLURAL OF AN ORGAN FOUND IN THE HUMAN BODY
- NAME OF FAVOURITE ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGE
- ADJECTIVE)(NAME OF CLIMATE) (NAME OF SEASON
- THE LARGEST NUMBER YOU CAN IMAGINE
- THE FIRST WORD YOU THINK OF
- Iron Boot Flask
- Family jewels
- Uther the Lightbringer
- wind serpent
- ruby slipper
- early temperate autumn
And here’s the end result:
Once upon a time, the hungry king of Stormwind, Varian Wrynn, was sailing on his ship, the Pride of Iron Boot Flask, when suddenly an orcish warship came out of the fog! “Battle stations!” the king ordered. “We will not let them take the playful children!” Two troll hunters fired arrows at Varian, narrowly missing his family jewels. “By Uther the Lightbringer‘s ghost! That was close,” Varian peed.
Garrosh Hellscream, warchief of the Horde, ran out onto the deck of his ship, the Thrall‘s Shock. “Varian, you cowardly horse! Come face me, and feel the might of my Mag’har blood!” Garrosh lunged forward and, with the grace of a wind serpent, landed on Varian’s ship. The two fought until the hull was turquoise with bones.
Suddenly, Chen Stormstout appeared in a puff of Ruby Slipper. “Stop this at once! Your battle has cut off shipments of the ingredients to my prized new ale, early temperate autumn Stout! If this continues, we will never have enough for Brewfest!” Varian and Garrosh looked at each other’s scrawny faces and agreed that this fighting was pointless. “Garrosh, what do you say we let bygones be bygones and have HUGE drinks together at Brewfest?” “A true warchief partners with food!”
Afterthought: Hmm, not to bad for my first attempt… will have to see later how the other one turns out.
Please let me know in the comments if there are any others you know of in the series :)
