Heh

Sometimes the LJ Spotlight has good stuff. I really like corrupted_wish. It reminds me of the game Brooke and I play called "Good News/Bad News." At corrupted_wish, you "grant" the wish of the previous poster, with negative consequences. For example, one I did a bit ago was:

Subject: I wish we could have some decent weather for once.

Body: Granted! For a whole week your region's weather is perfect by whatever standards you deem to be perfect weather, but then not only is it never decent weather there ever again, it is monsoons, tornadoes, and plagues of locusts there for the rest of eternity. The government declares the region a disaster area for good. Everyone finds out it was your wish that caused it, and they dip you in chum and toss you to the tiger sharks. Which have frickin lasers attached to their heads.

I wish I could be solar-powered so I don't *have* to eat.

Here.

:-)

Congratulations, you're a tree.

Corrupted Wish is my favorite game on Napalm Luck.

Incidentally, my favorite episode of X-Files was the one with the genie whose entire existence was corrupted wishes.

I liked that one too. "I wish for world peace" says Mulder, and he becomes the only human left on the planet.

Kinda reminds me, too, of a story called The Monkey's Paw, and of an episode of Buffy where Dawn tried to bring their mother back to life.

Oh, also, in the TV show Charmed, genies were tricksterish sorts who would usually corrupt the wishes they made for people.

Heh
Deer Path of Huntley is a wonderful community. I can’t believe I met my awesome boyfriend here. Sean “Mxingk” Keffer and I get our barbecue as in-house DJ team in preparation for next week. I’m a little nervous about how this is going to turn out, as we’ve never played music for such a large audience.
We’ll definitely make the headlines today, as we’re going to help put on a show for everyone. It’s going to be an awesome day. The good thing is beautiful weather is taking over; bad weather is going to remain at bay—far away- until some point after we come in from outside.
