Hi everyone, I know I haven't been here in, like, forever, but I've got something that may be of interest. Basically, you give me an idea (a subject, setting, a few lines), and I write a story for you!

If you want to get an idea of what I mean, you can find two sample stories (ideas courtesy of SilverWolfPet) here: http://bouffonbooks.com/2011/09/28/introducing-bouffon-stories/

Enjoy, and feel free to ask for a story in this thread! :D

    He was raised by Orcas, and used to see pirate ships sail past his beach as a child.
    He thought it was pretty neat, and he wanted to be a pirate.

    One day he got bored of eating fish and went into the local town, where he met Peg Leg Pete, who told him of island of Melee, where the Grog was fresh, and treasure was plenty.

    So he "borrowed" Pete's map, snuck aboard a fishing ship, and set off on adventure! XD

  • I've written four more stories. Don't worry, I'll get to the rest as well!

    Fantastic work, you managed to go in a direction I never considered.
    Very creative work, excellent stuff.

    I like how you sucessfully managed to intergrate a random prop into a story,
    So much so that the next challenge, (should you choose to accept it! :D) is to make a story which includes the following list of props:

    List of props:

    - Glass of Milk
    - Rock
    - ipad
    - Gentleman's Magazine
    - Loin Cloth
    - Plasma Rifle
    - Brocolli
    - Hammer
    - A DVD of Happy Feet

    There is one logical way I have thought of including all these elements, and it would involve a short story about maybe a modern couple fighting over whether to watch TV, (a bit of channel surfing), a DVD, or to play Halo 3, which could then escelate to other petty argument, maybe even a major argument, and an eventual resolution.

    However, thats too easy.

    Which is why you have to also include this:

    - Surrealism

    (Feel free to take as much time as you like on this one. Even skipping over it if necessary. I think its a doozy! >: D)
  • Okay, I'll try something else too; three lines of dialogue, two props, and a basic premise/setting.

    -"Well, that's what I call a difficult seal to club."
    -"You cannot conquer the galaxy without the space crystal!"
    -"So are you and Mark still together?"

    -A revolver
    -A purple balloon

    -A politician announcing an affair with his mistress
