Strangers

This is the Seven-Character Story Treatment that is three points. It took me awhile to find a prompt I could use for writing about the character I created so I thought that it would be fun to include other characters that he interacts with.

They have never met until now. One night when a young man appears in front of his taxi, George Smith gets a new customer. Amelia Williams is given an idiot to take care of. Mark and Katherine Jones are recruited to on a secret mission that they haven’t been told anything about but the mission will give them limitless income. Enrique Rivera is taken from the streets to aid in the secret mission on account that his younger sister’s death will be avenged. Mariam Flowers sings at the local bar and constantly sees a six people running around with mild confusion. She sets out to find out what their secrets are. Eric Mills used to be a cop until his daughter died. Now he keeps on getting cryptic message from an unknown source. What happens when a group of strangers are told to help a mystery boy on a mediocre mission.

This isn’t the best description but I wanted to add more characters to the story so here it is.

The Shadow- Alternative Ending

Here is the Alternative Ending prompt that is three points. I was reading through The Shadow and I kept thinking that the Shadow character would reveal himself to be Corvet.So, here is the story if The Shadow was revealed to be Corvet.

Evans: You mean you won’t use your powers to save us from him?

The Shadow: No, I’ll use my powers to kill you all!!!

Evans: What?

The Shadow: You ratted me out and now I have found you to kill you!

The Shadow suddenly appears from the shadows. He was Corvet all along! Evans gasps.

Dubrille and Martin come to see what the commotion is and suddenly shots are heard and they drop to the floor covered in their own blood. As Corvet is distracted, Evans runs into a room and hides in the closet. Corvet walks towards the bodies to make sure that they are dead and notices that Evans is gone. He goes on a search

Corvet: Evans. I know your hiding from me. Don’t you wanna come out and say hi to an old friend.

Evans shivers with fear in the closet. The closet door opens, Evans looks up.

Corvet: Found you. (BANG!)

Evans lays dead in the closet. A few weeks later bodies are found and The Shadow lives to roam the streets as a free man.

What’s in a Name?

This is the “What’s in a Name?” writing assignment that is two points. My given name is a part of the url for this blog. My name is Kassia Rivera. My last name is sort of self explanatory. I’m half-Hispanic (specifically Puerto Rican) on my dad’s side so, I have a Hispanic last name. My first name is a bit more interesting. My name isn’t very common in the United States. It’s origin is Hebrew and it means Pure. It’s more common in places like Poland and the UK. The reason my first name is a name that is very rare is because my mom likes to read. She was reading a mystery series and she admired the name and decided that I would have that name. Another interesting thing is that I don’t pronounce my name like it should be pronounced because my mom never looked up the formal pronunciation and just went with what she thought it was supposed to pronounced as. So, it should be pronounced like kah-SEE-ah but I say KASS-ee-ah instead. I’ve never met someone with the same name as me in America, and I would be really surprised if I did.

The Pug and the Horse

This is the “Once Upon a Time…..The End” prompt that was three points. The words I got were liquid, sadness, autopsy, hoofs, federation, finger, forest, hospital, crossfire and periodic.

One night, a fawn pug had gotten out of the his master’s house and my now roaming the dark forest. He was sniffing a large tree when suddenly a federation of hoofs stormed into the forest. The pug looked up and saw a large amount of white horses covered in metal armor. He heard loud growling and looked to his left. Their was a mass of bears with wooden weaponry. They came charging towards the horses. The pug was caught in the crossfire and trampled. As the battle ended, the animals left the dark forest.

The pug lay unconscious on the forest floor all alone. The master, hearing the loud noises came rushing outside to see his pet on the ground injured. His eyes began to drip liquid sadness and he rushed his pet to the animal hospital. In the rush to get the pug treated for his injures, his paper’s were switched with an animal getting an autopsy.

The pug lay on the operation table about to be cut open when a large white armored burst through the window. Startling the doctors, the horse grabbed the pug off of the operation table and waved his finger in the air. The horse felt great grief once he had found out his federation had injured a neutral animal during their battle. He felt it was his duty to use his powers to go back in time and save the pug’s life. He placed the pug away from the battle and his life was saved. Now, periodically the horse and his federation come and visit the pug.

Note: I didn’t really know what to do with the words I had so the story just got weirder and weirder as I wrote it. I started the story on Tuesday and during the week I ended up adding a lot of random stuff to it. I hope you enjoy!

The Struggle of a Food Detective

This is the Beyond the Headlines prompt which was three points. The prompt was to copy and paste some newspaper headlines and try to make a story. This might not seem very coherent, but it was very fun to make.
