Ok so I've done these kinds of games on tumblr and I think they're a lot of fun, so I thought I'd try bringing it here. Basically it goes like this:

  1. Someone posts a word.
  2. Find the word in your WIP and copy and paste the sentence where the word appears (If the word appears multiple times in your WIP, just pick your favourite).
  3. Leave a new word for the next person.

(And obviously, normal forum etiquette still applies here. Be nice, hide sensitive content under a spoiler, etc.)

First word is: Night

@tiredandconfused group

Oh, this seems fun!

"Yllmadaya was unbothered from staying up all night. She hadn’t needed to sleep since she was mortal, and she found it to be a hassle that took time away from her."

Next word: Eye

Deleted user

Lyson's eyes lit up. "Sure! I cant wait to see what other creatures that Live here!" He Let out a warm smile.

Next word: Darkness


It wasn’t that he doubted his friend’s ability to save him in this situation, it was more of an innate concern for the potentiality of traps and hidden forces waiting to spring out of the darkness to consume Osric’s soul.

Next word: Bird


So as the president, who screw it, I shall name as Franklin Bosque, a trans man who took office through a series of headstrong, proof-backed moves, tried to run his country, he was basically hitting his head against a brick wall.

Next word: Protest

Deleted user

“Fine.” Before anyone could protest Anahita walked towards the Boundary Line, head held high, fists clenched angrily at her sides.

Next word: Outlook

@Starfast group

"Even if there was a healer right around the corner, he knew that realistically the outlook wasn’t good."

I'm going to add a coupe new rules, for the sake of keeping this thread going:

  1. You can add a backup word if you're worried that no one has your word in their WIP (or even if your not)
  2. If it's been more than 24 hours, someone else can post a new word.
  3. Forgot to mention this initially, but variations of words are ok (like earlier we had "protest" but "protester" or "protesting" could also be accepted. But obviously try to look for the actual word first).

Next word: friend

@Becfromthedead group

There was Aurelius at one end of the table. She [Valkyrie] had taken him for being very intense and a thinker, but when he was with his friends, he smiled so much you wouldn’t think he had felt a single day of sadness in his life, and he laughed so purely that it seemed like he was pushing away all other thoughts.

Next word: Anger

@tomat brightness_7

But he felt no sadness, none. The only thing filling him was rage, tearing him from the inside, that only the touch of the cool chains kept him from screaming. He knew this was not the time for anger.

Next word: Feet

@Becfromthedead group

The crowd had parted around the child’s body, and despite the fact that Valkyrie could only keep her focus here, there was more chaos abound everywhere else in the arena.
Next word: Wake

Deleted user

“Forget about the horses.” Tournor grinned, exposing two dimples in his cheeks. “I am looking forward to a real bed and some hot food.”

Next word: Brought

@Becfromthedead group

“Smells like bullshit,” Pollux hissed, pressing his blade closer to his throat, “What brings you here, Cyrus? And what brought you to our hometown to kill innocent people?”
Next word: hope

@Starfast group

“Well,” Gerard said, “Without a full medical history all I can do really is just cross my fingers and hope something works.”

Next word: First

@tomat brightness_7

"And now that I know you, you are rejecting me!"
"You don't know any of us! You don't know what we've been through! We all discourage you from staying in the military because we immediately noticed that you are too weak! You are the first Naterlonah who actually wanted to be one!"
"But I…"

Next word: Long

@SpookyScarySnoteleks group

I'm happy because this one is like, my favorite scene in my fic
"Not for long, he isn't." Sanji took off into a run, pulling his t-shirt off and throwing it onto the sand. He practically dove into the water, unfazed by the cold. His head disappeared under the surface, and when he came up for air, he was faced by Luffy, Usopp and Chopper, each with a grin on their face. The cook disappeared again, and surfaced next to Zoro's raft. He gave a 'thumbs up' gesture before his head popped underwater once more, and the raft, Zoro included, began to tip over.

Next word: Enjoy

Deleted user

It must have been just under an hour when the man named Hemlock returned, pausing just outside the window as if he felt the young boy’s eyes upon him.
Pushing all thoughts of doubt from his mind Ladios scuttled into the common room and sat down upon a small chair his gaze staring transfixed upon the man who had just entered.

Next word: Ground

@Becfromthedead group

Nox sighed. “It’s probably my fault. I’ve had some sort of premonition, and it looks grim.”
“Grim? What did you see?”
“The village was up in flames. There were bodies everywhere. People fighting for something they ultimately couldn’t defend.”
Aurelius’ eyes widened. “You really think that’s a glimpse of our near future?”
“I can’t say for sure if it was the near future, but I have a bad feeling about it.”
Nox turned her serpentine head to look Aurelius in the eyes.
“In the end, I saw a hair ribbon flutter to the ground, red silk against the fiery sky.”

Next word: painful


As the explosions rocked the world, Wild felt searing hot pain tear through his back. He landed on his stomach and rolled, stopping on his back. Dully, he noticed that the grass was on fire next to him. All around him, really. The edges of his world were getting dark and fuzzy. All he could hear was ringing, and his limbs felt like they had fused to the ground. His bow was too far away–scratch that, it was gone, snapped under a guardian's unrelenting stampede.

Next word: Soar
