Five Words Game!

Hey, remember when I had that game? You know the one where you guys give me five words and I attempt to write a story using them? I'm sorry it's been so long since there's been an installment of The Assistant. (Of course, maybe you don't even care, heh.) My work has been sucking up all my creative power, but I miss Kitty and Geoff and Cal, even that crazy Madame Beaumont. Let's give them another chapter, shall we?

The Rules: Give me a word—any PG word—and I will incorporate it into a short fiction piece, which will be posted at some point. Only one word per person, and I will take the first five words offered. The story must continue where it left off.

Be nice-ish, pretty please? *gulp*

  4. nutria

    Inspired by my word verification, which was natria.

    Can't argue with the word verification.

  9. And there's the cut off at Morgan's! Man...you guys weren't even close to nice-ish. If you knew how much work I have, you'd feel bad. Maybe.

  10. Do I get points for being the nicest of a cruel bunch?
    At least a dictionary isn't needed for chihuahua...

  11. Emily, I really, really don't. Especially since there's no way I can get Cal into this scene.

    Megan, you totally get points. And hugs.

  12. Darn! I got here too late! I would have given you a much simpler word than hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia.

    WTH?!

  13. Seriously, they weren't nice-ish at all. Except chihuahua.

  18. Oh, poor Natalie, you were thrown under the bus this time. I would feel sorry for you, but you did ask for it. :)

  19. You are going to have one rocking vocab thanks to this game.

  20. You should totally make the cut-off at 50 and then random for 5. You could totally fix the roll so that the toughies don't win!

  21. I can't wait to see what you come up with!

  22. I think there may need to be a limit on how many consonants and vowels are in a word. I like Nick's idea too!

    Good luck on pulling this one out of the hat. I'm headed off to check out the meaning of the word.

  23. "Fantastical"
    That's got to be my favorite word. Ever.

  24. Awe! I really wish I had seen this post earlier. I can't WAIT for this. Natalie, we get you're super busy and we LOVE you for entertaining us!

  25. NOw that I know the meaning I think that first word is appropriate. I also think it ironic that it means what it does!
