Note to reader: this is the second part in a two-part showcase on the works of Diexilius . If you haven't read the first part , you will probably want to before continuing forward with this analysis. As well, there will be detailed spoilers for the story we analyze here, and I strongly urge you to read it before reading my thoughts.
"Okay, but first I'll have to remind you, any substance you found was probably not on purpose"
- Diexilius, 2019
When I approached Diexilius for insight on his story Predicting Something, he remarked that he "...just wanted to come up with a less conventional idea, and something about that specific scenario sounded good enough." When able to look back and critique his work, he expressed disappointment in the simpli…

Hello, welcome to this index/introduction to some of the work I've been doing over the past three years. This post will provide a short explanation/history of the Random Writer's Showcases written by myself, and will contain links to each of the installments for easy access. As more showcases come out, I'll make sure to update this article.
The sheer stretch of time devoted to the creation of only 16 episodes means there is a wide varience in quality and conventions from the first to the last showcase. Each showcase can typically be expected to contain reviews of several curated works from a writer chosen off of the site. The ways an author is chosen varies but is not truly random. The hope is that the selection can serve to shine a light o…

For some reason, I checked through all my characters, and I followed all the rules, I read, yet I can't find why it's banned. It doesn't let me make a page, even though I don't have any blacklisted words in my title or pasta. I don't know what i'm doing wrong. Can someone help me?

We like to throw the phrase “cliche” around here on site, but I think sometimes many do not know what it means, occasionally targeting legitimate narrative techniques as cliches.
A TROPE is a utilitarian and artistic tool for writers. They are forms of expression, syntax, idea and metaphor that bind a story together. Whether its describing a dynamic between two characters or a very specific event with outcomes.
The more a trope is used, the more it becomes ‘cliche-like’. A CLICHE is a trope thats indicative of the genre its being used in, a formulaic trope. At its worst, it means something is so unoriginal and formulaic it fails to retain the original meaning or impact, to the point of tedium.
For example, a common trope of the zombie genre m…Read more >
Recently, myself and the other admins decided to revisit the ban on lost episode stories and haunted gaming stories and concluded that it is time for an update.
Historically, we have banned lost episode and haunted gaming stories due to their tendency to be highly cliched and unoriginal, and the fact that at the height of creepypasta's popularity, this wiki was flooded with them, most of them being of poor quality.
However there were always problems and ambiguities with the way the policy was articulated. The lost episode ban applied not just to stories based on real TV shows and movies, which is usually what people think of by "lost episodes," but also to any stories that follow the "lost episode formula" in any way, even if the show of int…Read more >
The concept of a "shared universe" isn't exactly new, but in recent years the idea has seen a surge in popularity. Marvel pulled off a cinematic universe and big studios have been trying to ape it ever since, with varying degress of success. Stephen King's novels are pretty much all set in the same world, with his Dark Tower series serving as the central grounding point for all the events. I decided I wanted to do something like that with the short stories I've written for this site.
In this post, I'll be looking through all my stories and seeing if I can, theoretically, link them all together in the same continuity. For a shared universe of stories, you need two things: continuity and rules. For continuity, I'll be careful to make sure the…
