The Fumbler picked himself up from falling down all those stairs. (Overused? Hardly.) Oh. Fiddlesticks! He had dropped all those pocket realities on the way down.
Reality is a difficult thing to manage. The Fumbler tried his best, he really did, but sometimes things managed to slip through the cracks. Like that escalator he just fell down. Now little pocket realities were getting sucked under the bottom of the treads and he'd just have to wait for them to roll back up to the top...that was how it worked right?
Oh wait here was one! He picked up one of the pocket realities...or was it part of reality that goes in his pocket? Yes that was it, he put that slip of reality back in his pocket before walking back into the elevator (why had he even stopped on this floor?)
The Fumbler stood up from the base of the slide. That was a good choice, easy basement access. Here in the basement everything felt a tad more stable. As he approached the nearest stable, a friendly pony express rider greeted him.
"Hello Sir. Any messages to deliver today?"
"Oh...uhm..yes let me see here" The Fumbler reached into his pocket and pulled out that slip of paper. "Here you go! Deliver that one!"
The mail-truck driver took a look at the paper sheet and handed it back to The Fumbler.
"This is for you, Sir."
Sure enough the envelope was addressed to The Fumbler. He opened it's contents and read the letter within.
"Hey there buddy hows that universe treating ya? Listen I'm sending some folks your way. They're about to have a fight of sorts and I need you to take care of it for me. It's sort of the new thing but I'm busy at the moment so I figure you can handle it. I've put some directions in here I need you to follow. (Don't worry they won't change on you, I've seen to that.) Do this for me and I'll see if I can set you up with a nicer place mmkay? Thanks!"
The Fumbler looked further in the pack---no it was a letter-- further down the letter it read:
So you want to host a Grand Battle?
Follow these simple Rules!
Woops! Slipped up when posting!...let me get my things together here...
This is a NON-CANON Grand Battle Spin-off! Yaaaaay!
"But wait" you ask, "why should I join a spin off when I can just join the real thing?"
"Ah-Ha!" I say waving my cane and pointing my finger at your astuteness. "But you see as with all good spin-offs this has a CATCH! And what is this catch you ask?"
"Well as you can see our good friend The Fumbler has a bit of difficulty keeping his reality coherent. It tends to shift and change rather frequently. Of course left to his own devices everything would shift willy-nilly! But that's where YOU come in!"
You begin to walk away, but the cage locks around you.
"Now now not so fast! You see you get to determine what aspects of reality shift with every post you make! At the start of each story-post, simply state in a spoiler tag:
and then every instance of "Old word" in the previous post will be read as "New word" and the story will continue as such! Understand?"
You claw at the bars.
"Of course how silly of me! Here is an example!:
'Jacob Longbeard withdrew his sword from his sheath. It glittered in the sunlight. For years this sword had proved an invaluable tool, and his only friend. Ancient engravings enchanted the sword with a mysterious power which allowed it to cut through any material. In a single swipe he cut the vicious fang-beast in twain.'
'Jacob wiped the blood off his enchanted french baked good. Yes for years this same loaf of bread had protected him from many foes. He glanced over the words engraved on its flaky crust...perhaps just one bite....'
See! Easy as that! You nod in agreement! Whoops!"
I prod your head into a nod of agreement.
You bat away the cane and cry for your release.
"Now now you'll be released soon enough. Just fill out this form and proceed to write several pages of humorous wordplay!"
"Just as a note, we want to keep these posts short! Lets say about 500 give or take a few hundred words. Also, when you change a word, it has to make grammatical sense in the context of the previous post. No changing adjectives with verbs and what not! Otherwise your change will be invalid! YIKES!"Originally Posted by FORM (handily plagiarized from cyber95)
