Pass The Ghost Story
The simple explanation of how to play is in the name of the game. Write about one to three sentences, the next person will add their bit, and so on and so forth to continue the (mildly coherent) story.

Just thought this could be funny. :cheeky:

To start:

A group of irritating and stereotypical teenagers decided it was high time for a camping trip in the middle of nowhere. So, the group of 6 (Billy, Chad, Shaniqua, Desmond, Valerie, and Britney) set off excitedly on their nature quest.

They find their spot and set up camp. It's night fall, fire is dying, and all are ready for bed.
"Did you hear that, omg?!" cries Britney Spears.
"No, shut the fuck up Britney. I've heard enough crying from you all day today." Exclaimed Billy, very annoyed.
"There it is again!" cries Britney once more. Billy gets up, turns the flashlight on and gets out of the tent to take a look around.
The other four campers including Britney Spears sit and lay in their tent, waiting for Billy to return....

Re: Pass The Ghost Story
Billy begins his hike to find out what the noise was, yet he forgot they were all poor students and only had enough money to buy off brand batteries from the dollar store.

His flashlight goes dim and he senses something close by...

Back at the camp the campers are deciding who will be thrown into the path of the thing they fear if it arrives.

Britney begins to shave her head, since she believes her hair will weigh her down if she has to out run the monster

Re: Pass The Ghost Story
Billy pivoted the flashlight beam towards a tree, where he was sure he saw a greenish figure swoosh by.

"This isn't funny, you guys!" Billy whined predictably, "what the...?"

Meanwhile, back at the camp, the other campers began sweeping Britney's hair clumps out of the tent with disgust. They heard a distant scream.

"AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" Valerie suggested.

Re: Pass The Ghost Story
"What happened!?!" Chad said enthusiastically.
"Ahhhhh!" Valerie began screaming and jumped right out of the tent. "ewwww!!! they are on me! they are on me!" she said, freaking out and taking her top off.
Chad and Shaniqua watched intently, breaking out in smiles.
"Ha Ha Ha!" Desmond broke out in laughter. He held a lock of Britney's hair in his hand and held it out.
"It's got fleas!" Yelled out Desmond. Everyone laughed out loud and told Britney Spears to get her and her nasty ass head out of the tent.
Valerie calmed down, thinking everything was clear, when all of sudden a hand grabbed her shoulder from behind.

Re: Pass The Ghost Story
Valerie smacks the hand away, turns and sees Billy.
"Dammit, Billy, you scared me."
"Sorry, Val."
"Was there anything out there?"
Billy paused. "Nope. Nothin' but trees and woodland creatures."

Valerie breathed a sigh of relief, but there was a moment where she swore Billy looked different. Something in the eyes, a green glow. But she was distracted by the conversation behind her.

"Britney, get out of there, you nasty beast."
"Hang on, guys. I'm updating my Facebook profile."
Although poor, they all own the latest communication technology. They all rush to check her profile and her changed status of "Shaving my head. Lulz."

Re: Pass The Ghost Story
Just as Desmond was about to "poke" Valerie on Facebook, all their screens began flickering, until they went completely black.

"WHAT THE HECK! What happened to our connex'!?!?!!" Chad picked up his laptop and tried throwing it at the side of the tent, instead hitting Shaniqua directly in the forehead, knocking her out cold.

"Umm...Where's Billy?" Valerie asked.
"Dude." Desmond stood up and inexplicably rushed out of the tent; the rest (except Shaniqua) followed.

They saw two, almost radioactively green-glowing eyes glance back at them, then disappear into the woods.

Re: Pass The Ghost Story
"Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!" Valerie yelled.
"Would you knock that off?" Desmond said, annoyed.

Britney, with the moon glowing brilliantly off her large head, panicked and turned back toward the tent. "Oh no! Shaniqua!"

Shaniqua, knocked out by Chad's laptop, had a large bruise on her forehead.
Chad turned and thought about his responsibility for Shaniqua's condition.
"The monster must have hit her!" he yelled.
"Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!" Valerie replied.
Desmond sighed. "I'm serious, Val. What the hell?"

There was still no sign of Billy.

Re: Pass The Ghost Story
"Okay, okay, okay, okay, OKAY!" Desmond shouted. "Okay, guys, listen. We have to focus and find Billy. He could danger. I mean, he's by himself; no one's watching him."
"Ohhhhhh...." Shaniqua moaned, rubbing her forehead and leaning up on one elbow.
"I think we should split up into groups!" Chad shouted.
"Why?" asked Britney, wiping the last of the polish from her head.
"Because it makes too much sense to stay together." Chad responded, glancing nervously at Shaniqua.
"Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!" Valerie agreed.

In one team of two (Desmond and Shaniqua) and one of three (Chad, Britney, and Valerie), they set off with their flashlights in search of Billy.

Re: Pass The Ghost Story
Desmond and Shaniqua headed north, to where the green-glowing eyes had disappeared.

Chad, Britney, and Valerie headed east.
Their flashlight beams barely pierced the darkness. The three stumbled over branches and uneven ground, nervously shining in different directions.
" you see that?" Valerie pointed her beam at something on the ground. It was red.
"It's a shirt."
"There's stuff all over the ground." Chad's light revealed pieces of this and that--clothing, backpacks, shoes, food wrappers, tents, all ripped and strewn across the ground. "This was someone else's camp."
Britney's flashlight went out. She smacked it. Again. A flicker. Again. A flicker. Again.
When the light came back, it was pointed at her feet. When she looked down, she screamed.

Re: Pass The Ghost Story
However, Billy was nearby sitting on a tree branch watching Chad, Desmond and Valerie begin looking for him in silence, thinking as long as he's halfway up the tree, he won't have to share his smoke. He snickers quietly to himself, shifts his weight to be more comfortable and prepares to stay awhile.

Billy thinks it's safer if they stay together also, but he can't say so and assumes they'll figure that out for themselves.

Then from across the clearing, Billy sees neon lime green eyes peering toward his friends and he's thinking this is some really good stuff. The bright green eyes would definitely have had more impact if he'd known Britney replaced his stash with an unknown stinkweed earlier.

Re: Pass The Ghost Story
Still recovering from her mild, "inexplicable" concussion, Shaniqua unsteadily kept pace with Desmond.

"Look!" Desmond pointed his flashlight at something smoldering in the leaves.
"That's totally a fire hazard!" Shaniqua said, picking up the object.
"Um. Does that smell like weed to you?"
At that, they heard a giggle in some undefinable location in the dark.

"AHHHHHHHHHH!" Valerie stiffened in terror, waving her hands daintily.
After thoroughly yucking it up, Chad walked over and plucked the snake off her shoe.
"Like...oh my's just a snake," Britney scoffed, itching her head.
"Oh yeah?" Chad stuck the snake near Britney's face, and her shriek echoed through the forest.
"Will you SHUT UP?! The ghoul will hear us!" Valerie warned.
"What makes you think it's a 'ghoul'?" Chad asked.
Something suddenly shifted under the tattered remains of one of the tents.

Brisa 08-04-2008 11:14 PM

Re: Pass The Ghost Story
Chad ducked behind Valerie as the tent started to dance on the forest floor, it went left and right and up and down untill suddenly... a tiny rabbit bounded out from underneath. Britney, amused ran after it wanting to shove it in her newest pet purse.
"would you let go of my arm please?" Valerie said painfully.
Chad released his grip and Valerie relaxed.
"You do know I was only holding onto you to protect you?, cause we don't need another person to be snatched up!"
Valerie rolled her eyes.
"come on, lets go catch the flea infested person, god only knows what she could give that rabbit"

cstoll 08-04-2008 11:38 PM

Re: Pass The Ghost Story
Desmond and Shaniqua continued to search for the sound of the giggle.
After an awkward pause, Desmond said, "You know, we could, like, make out."
Shaniqua kept rubbing her read, "I almost had a concussion."
"That's why I'm asking."

Chad and Valerie pursued Britney. And she pursued the rabbit, her bald head shining and bobbing under the moonlight. The flashlight beam landed on white fur. It moved. The beam tried to follow, lighting on branches, leaves, and a flash of something green that seemed unnatural.

Chad and Valerie heard a scream from Britney's direction. They ran, their meager lights flashing all around. Finally, they saw Britney, sitting against a tree. She had a serene look on her face.
"Chad, do her eyes look kinda weird to you?"
"Yeah. Totally. And why is she petting a dead bunny in her lap?"

Zanahoria_Picante 08-05-2008 12:03 AM

Re: Pass The Ghost Story
"Right." Shaniqua glared, "I still don't even know how that happened."
"That's kind of weird..." Desmond muttered.
"Well, yeah, I know. One moment, I'm posting on Chad's wall, the next--"
"No, not that," Desmond snapped, "that."
They both looked down into an unnaturally circular hole right in the middle of a clearing.

"Hehe. Oops, she did it again!" Chad blurted.
Valerie sneered at him.
Just at that, Britney smiled a crazed smile, still holding the bunny corpse, and rose to her feet to face them; the reflective gleam from her head almost blinded them in the dark.
"AHHHHHHHHHH!" Valerie remarked, as Chad glommed her arm and they sprinted away.

Re: Pass The Ghost Story
Billy sat up in his tree taking puffs after puffs, thinking about his childhood, chuckling and giggling, watching his friends look around. He took his last toke from his joint and then proceeded to throw the roach to the ground. As the roach left his fingertips, he thought he should put it out first. It was too late and the burning roach fell to the forest floor, hiding amongst the leaves. Billy climbed down from the tree and tried to find it. He swooshed his hands in the leaves and something cut him.
"Ahh fuck me!!" He grabbed his hand back from the ground and held it tightly. He cursed at the ground and looked at his hand. He was bleeding but not too bad. During his commotion he lost sight of his friends, so instead of inspecting what cut him, he hurried up to go find them.

"Britney, what the fuck is the matter with you?" Asked Chad. "God damn it girl, you're fucking reckless."
They approached Britney and when Valerie touched her shoulder, Britney jumped.
"HUH!?" She snapped out of it and the color returned to her pale face.
"What happened Britney?" Valerie kneeled beside her, inquisitive. Just then Chad heard crackling in the leaves directly to the left of them. All 3 of them stood still and shined whatever dim light they could.

Re: Pass The Ghost Story
Desmond and Shaniqua stared at the unnaturally circular hole in the middle of the clearing. With their lights, they could see that the grass had been flattened and burned around the hole.
"What could've made that?"
They heard someone running up behind them.
"Billy, is that you?"
Billy ran up, holding his bleeding hand and smelling like a Cheech and Chong reunion.

In another part of the woods, Chad kept beaming his light to find the source of the crunching leaves. Valerie turned to Britney, who had gone from a bald, pale, crazed, dead-bunny holder to a bald, dead-bunny holder with her regular lack of charm. The green glow that Valerie thought she saw in Brit's eyes had disappeared.
"Uh, Brit, you're still holding a dead bunny."
"Ugh, totally gross! I'm so toxic tonight."
"Shut up, guys," Chad said. "Someone's out there. Billy? That you?"
Billy--with hands free of blood and clothes without the smell of weed--walked out of the darkness to them.

Zanahoria_Picante 08-05-2008 01:52 AM

Re: Pass The Ghost Story
"Billy! Where the smack have you been, man?" Desmond shouted, clutching Billy's shoulders.
"And what happened to your hand?" Shaniqua recoiled slightly.
"I cl--When I was...tree...!" Billy explained, panting.
"AHHHHHHHHHHH!" Shaniqua Valeried.
Two sets of fingers had wrapped around the rim of the nearby hole.

"Billy!" Chad beamed. "Oh my gosh! Don't do that again! We thought you were dead!"
Billy stared blankly at them.
"Um...," Britney smoothed her head nervously, "awkward."
They uncomfortably stared back, and they saw his eyes slowly begin to smooth into a solid, glowing green.
"Hey, he's not really Billy, is he?" Valerie guessed.

cstoll 08-05-2008 02:17 AM

Re: Pass The Ghost Story
Des, Shaniqua, and Billy stared at the hands that were coming out of the hole in the ground.
Billy blinked, "Aw, dudes, I think that was some bad weed."
"Billy, do you have your flashlight?" Des asked, voice trembling.
Billy, still high, in a state of denial, merely held up his bloody hand.
"Big help, Billy. If we need you to bleed on the forest monster, we'll holler."
Their flashlights died as a full body climbed out of the whole.

Meanwhile, Valerie, Britney and Chad were coming to terms with the new Billy in front of them. His eyes glowed green.
Chad stammered, "Uh...w-what do we do?"
Britney smacked Billy in the face with the dead bunny, and they ran, with Billy walking slowly after them.

Re: Pass The Ghost Story
Psst, someone needs to get that dead bunny away from Britney.
