If sheep entrails could in any way be related to the weather, i.e. sheep trails only originate where it rains, then you could use it as an accurate model for discerning what the weathers going to be like. Either, sheep shit makes it rain, or raining makes sheep shit. Sheep don't shit "randomly" sheep shit after they eat, it doesn't rain "randomly" it rains after water collects in the atmosphere.

Whoa, awesome!!

:mittens:

Like it a lot. "what if Discordia had a sort of pop-idol?" :)

First part of the story had me wikipedia-ing for this guy's name (often enough famous people's names are posted and I have no idea who they are), but there's like 8 of them on wikipedia :) How did you come up with the name?

Also, dunno if you've seen the movie "So Fucking What", but it sort of explores the same topics. Not gonna say which ones in your story specifically, you'll have to watch it ;-) It's a pretty good movie (IMO)

I just wanted to put a word to the idea, and chose 'Cressing' randomly. From there I developed the idea of a movement defined by the individual. There's nothing significant about the term at all.
I want to do a series of these.

This was so well thought out I thought it was all real.

Thank you very much Kai.

I really like this.

if I could add anything it would be more examples of what it looks like when people create their own narratives

Yeah, that would be a cool follow-up :)

Also, what Kai said (which is what I tried to say in my prev post)

Also, just playing around here, developing some structures. I want to let this exist separate to the 'story' element.

I really need to start putting effort into building on my own ideas. That MacGuffining activity isn't anything I've ever heard of before, but I have engaged in it with my friends, except that I called it a "quest". I really need to start building on that.

And I really like both the Cressing idea and the stories. They look like they could be real. :mittens:

These writery bits are awesome. 'Cressing' sounds like how I keep myself from going insane(er) and going on a killing spree. I might have to pay attention and start playing with it more seriously.

Well actually I was going to call it questing but the term McGuffon came to me. It's an idea from Hollywood (possibly Hichcock), with a McGuffon being an object with no function beyond extending the action.

If anyone would liek to sshare experiences about things like this that you've already tried or seen, please let me know. I'd be very interested.

Also, I'm out of my one horse town and back to the city in a week (and a few days) so I'm hoping to do some road tests then too.

Shit yeah! Really glad to see this thread pop up again!

This idea influenced this story I'm working on. I'm not using Cressing in the story, but rather I'm using blending narrative and reality together in the story. So thanks for writing this.
