Chat Libs is a ‘Mad Libs’ based activity over on our Twitch live stream. The audience suggests a scenario, I write a story template with missing words, and they fill in the holes. Hilarity ensues. If you wish to participate you can join us at twitch.tv/blainearcade
Scenario: Two women discuss their past lives as moths over drinks
They had an awful lot in common, including their drink order; it was a blinding cocktail called a smelly tornado. It helped them get drunk fast, loosening their lips so the could discuss what had brought them together. Sarah Jaywalk and Torga d’Astorga were both confident that reincarnation was not only real, but also terrible.
They fluttered their jowls identically, both remembering the way their wings felt in their previous lives. They had both been moths, but not the same species. Sarah was a hallucinating gargoylewing while Torga was a common blistered hornbutt.
“Do you remember injecting a mate?” Sarah asked Torga. “Those annual pheromones were so intoxicating, almost as much as these.” She guzzled her drink and took a bite of her entree: fire ants with kibble. “You know it was while I was mating that I was eaten by a librarian. So very rude.”
“I miss flying more,” the other said with a sniffle and a $100 bill in her eye. She jumped up on the table and took off her one ring to rule them all, throwing it across the bar. It landed in someone’s mithril, prompting them to jump rope rather loudly. “I used to be as light as 100,000 feathers!” she bawled, throwing herself off the table and flapping.
“Excuse me ladies,” I’m going to have to ask you to leave,” the superhero said. They could tell he was serious, for he brandished a fireball rather aggressively. The women braced each other and took their leave, throwing an advanced AI chip over their shoulder as a tip. Moths preferred fresh air anyway.
They were pursued blatantly by another patron of the bar. He fondly recalled his past life as a stage coach driver, and as everyone knows their favorite prey is the moth.
