To make a plot work, there must be conflict, and to create conflict, people must be unhappy.

Because our characters are in YA fiction, it seems like this unhappiness would best be expressed by the website fmylife.com.

The format is, according to fmylife.com is, "in a few sentences, users can tell everyone the shitty moment which ruined their day. These short stories must begin with "Today" and end with "FML".", and this game will be no different.

Also, at the beginning of your post, you must decide whether your character who posts their FML would vote 'I agree, your life is f***ed,' or 'You deserved that one.'

Okay, I'll start.




Today some magazines of mine were stolen out of my locker. To top it all off they were porn. So now somebody else is either whacking off to them or has them as evidence against me for the school. FML.

My father's turning me into a robot. Today, I opened the closet in his basement and discovered six broken robots he tried to make and failed. They were mindless and their wings were dysfunctional. Obviously my father sucks at robots. Then I killed him. FML

I actually wrote a blog entry (http://teenswritingforteens.wordpress.com/2009/04/06/the-fml-moment/) about this. haha.

@Shady's char: I agree, your life is f***ed.

Today, I found out my perfect (dead) boyfriend was an alcoholic and a jerk. The sister I didn't know he had told me. FML

The girl I had a crush on said she was a pregnant virgin. I didn't know what to believe. So I slept with her. FML

@Shady: 'You deserved that one'

Today at lunch, this stalker-girl I met a few days ago sat next to me, so I ate too fast to get out of there and spent all of fifth period throwing up because of it. FML.

(@ Ian: Why would that make you sleep with her? Sounds like you deserve whatever you got)

I just enrolled in an all-boys' school, but my roommate is convinced I'm a girl. And when I'm around him, I am. Awkward living conditions? You bet.

(Ian: I had a crush on her! Did I mention she's my adopted cousin? Um, FML)


My best friend found out I stole some prescription drugs, retaliated by stealing them back and selling them. Of course, I thought he was going to kill himself. Turns out the boy has a new lease on life, since he's making out with another guy. Also, I'm pretty sure I'm in love with him. I'm straight. FML

Cameron:

(@ Charlie: Definitely deserve the first part. As for the second, um...)

I'm straight too! When... I'm a girl, at least. Right now I have two guys interested in me though. The one who thinks I'm a girl and the other thinks I'm a guy. And they're both right! And I was getting close to the first--Aidan--but now Jet and I are spending more time together, and I don't know what to do.

(Charlie @ Cameron: Try being honest? That's what I'm trying to do...)

I broke up with my long-term boyfriend to pursue a relationship with this cute nurse who seems really into me. Turns out he only wanted to study my brother, who's probably killing people in his sleep. And I'm probably next. FML, no?

Cameron: Probably.

Jet's making me read this really long, old, and incoherent book as if it's going to hint at some clue about him. As if it wasn't hard enough to read, the boys feel the need to be super-noisy. And I think Aidan's mad at me. Maybe because I almost kissed him while I was drunk last week....

Aidan: Yep, sounds unfair to me.

So... my roommate's a girl and I kinda like her, and she thinks I think she's a boy. Kinda screwed up, huh?

I think Hap wanted each post to start with "Today" and end with "FML"

But not in a conversational way.

Basically, one character comments on another's FML, then does their own. And then you move on. No questions about it, just comments and a "I agree, your life is f*cked" or a "You deserved that one"

It's like the website, but for characters.

Example:

Character1: Today, I tripped on a rock and fell. FML.

Character2: You deserved that one. ~ Today, I found out I was dating my dad's ex-girlfriend. FML.

Character3: Yeah, your life is f*cked. ~ Today, I had to learn 5 spells to defeat the Great Beast, but only understood 2. FML

Character4: Yeah, your life is f*cked. ~ Today, I was arrested by the government for my ESP powers and even though I escaped, my best friend didn't and I don't know what to do. FML.


Get it??

This is not meant to be just another MCs chat thread like the other voice games. fmylife.com doesn't allow for personal responses and getting into contact with whoever posts their FML -- people are supposed to embarrassed to talk about it except anonymously -- so... yes.))

((But if my characters wouldn't say "FML" or "I agree, your life is f*cked"?))

On the website they MAKE you have the "Today" at the beginning, and "FML" at the end. It's not really a choice.

And the you can only pick out of the two responses as comments. You click one or the other.

So it's not really what the person/character would say, it's just the format of the comment itself/the only two options available.

If that made any sense.

((But if my characters wouldn't say "FML" or "I agree, your life is f*cked"?))

((FML and 'your life is f***ed' aren't things that they'd actually say, FML is a part of the form of the response on the site, and 'your life is f***ed' is a button you press at the bottom of the post if you agree. So unless your character would avoid such sites on principle simply because of the wording, just use it anyway))

Today somebody played a trick on me, programming my computer to send me these fucked up messages. The program froze my computer and I lost an entire essay. I still don't know who did it because it was at school. FML.

Today, a 60,000 year old super computer is going to blow up half the galaxy with a massive gamma ray burst that will kill trillions of people and I and my best friend are the only ones who can do anything about it. Also, we're prolly going to die even if we succeed. FML.

Today, I let a boy take shelter in our village because there was a storm coming and he had nowhere else to go. Turns out he had a magic artifact with him that drew the infectious zombies we had spent months fighting off into the town square. I had to have my leg amputated after one of them infected me. FML

Conant
04-13-2009, 05:16 AM

Today I fought through the aforementioned zombies to rescue my sister. After killing countless dozens, I got to her only to find she was infected, and she ate my favorite dog. FM-

OH, GOD, GET HER OFF!!!

Robert Pattinson? You deserve that one.

Today I went out to get milk, and the store got held up by thugs. So I run away with the milk, and the police think I'm the robber, so they shoot at me. I get hit in the shoulder, fall into the sewers and get held captive by demented rat people. After a daring escape through a cesspool, I get back home and find that the milk's gone bad. FML

Today, I finally got rescued after 7 months of being shipwrecked. My mother acts like this is another opportunity for publicity and won't even let me hang out with the love of my life who I just spent the last 7 months alone with. FML

Today, I risked a trip into the most dangerous part of the city to get a magic blade that I could use to protect my family against shadow assassins. While I was gone, they were kidnapped by said assassins. FML

Today, I saw a cute guy, so I tried to talk to him, but when he turned to look at him, he had this really disfiguring scar on the rest of his face. I must have gasped or something because he was really offended when I tried to talk to him anyway. It was sooooo awkward. FML.

You deserved that one.
Today, my combat instructor discovered that the black choker I wear around my neck to hide this monster scar I gave myself is a great thing to drag me around on. She kept grabbing it to pull me into punches, and then she reminded me I have to kill this guy for her or he'll make me into an assassin, which is basically what she wants to do. FML.
