December 9th - Mad Libs

Sun Dec 9, 2012, 6:39 AM
Hey folks, in January The Event will take place. The Event is all about having fun with literature on deviantART. Leading up to this yet-to-be-named Event will be a series of activities for the lit community to partake in and enjoy themselves with. Stay tuned with CRLiterature or Nichrysalis for these Events.

What is a Mad Lib



Mad Libs (from ad lib, a spontaneous improvisation) is a word game where one player prompts another for a list of words to substitute for blanks in a story.

How this works



:bulletpink: Choose only one of the 25 options available
:bulletpink: Post a word that fits the description of what you chose (i.e. noun = lamp)
:bulletpink: I will remove options as they are posted with suggestions
:bulletpink: When every option has a word, I will post the completed mad lib in another journal

Done!



Ready. Go!


The list


1.Yes
2. painting
3. sanguinely
4. buttery
5. Austria
6. Parliament
7. fan-girling
8. redeem
9. tomorrow

6. Parliament

I'd be more willing to tackle "4" if I knew what "adjective that has a noun variation" means exactly. I Googled it but only found definitions for the word "variety." :p Are you thinking of something like "buttery," which is like an adjective version of the noun "butter?"

Actually, if so, I suggest "buttery" for number 4. :giggle:

:iconnichrysalis:
Nichrysalis Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
For 4., the word in question that would be replaced is "successful," an adjective strain of the noun "success." I have no doubt that I phrased this oddly, but it was the best I could come up with at the time.

I like both suggestions by the way, I'll add both of them in. =D

Oh my. :XD: "Buttery" instead of "successful" does sound a bit mad.

hmmm, looks like you're off a few places. I think that's a nanocentury, hehe.

3153.6 seconds or 52.56 minutes - the average length of a standard class.
