I was thinking the funhouse was like a tavern thread- It seemed to turn into a story.

The first story I jumped into was Mudcat of the Rings
I think I buffooned it, took a character of Peter T's, and used it in my story line, but got out okay without any scolding PM's! Thanks for that!

This is a great thread for reading old stories and learning. Thanks Susan.

Hey story-ers,

Seems like we've had stories that unfold between defined posters' characters, and stories that are sort of add-a-post. If you were to start a story as a permathread, would it make sense to designate what type you're unleashing, up front?

Also I think I have seen more than one that seemed to open as an unstated invitation to play, but were soon overwhelmed by people posting without realizing that, and abandoned in short order. Again, would it make sense to designate an invitation to play a bit more clearly?

I have never tried my hand at fiction before. While the story was unfolding I found I was incorporating the characters into some whacky dreams at night.

Thanks for letting me play!

My first Cycle was an Ariel square 4..mmm lovely old Bike. Wish I had never sold it.
Next was a Triumph Bonne, Then I built (with the help of Friends) a Triton, used the Bonne engine and put it into an Norton Featherbed frame.
Sold that eventually and then it has been Trumpets ever since:)
I did buy a Moto, Le Mans but rode my Triumph more than that so it went the way of the Local Paper's For Sale section.
I bought this Triumph when I arrived on this side of the Pond nearly 10 years ago now. I love her. I call her Flora. I don't know if everyone names their Cycles but I always have!

I hope that come the Spring, Flora and Judi will roam the backroads of Maine once more:)

Homeless, I have an image of the Ice sheet sliding from your Jacket. Ah the endurance of Youth. You wouldn't catch me riding in the rain and ice cold these days but I wouldn't have thought twice about it back then;)

Best to All
Jude
