Follow TV Tropes
Welcome to my new text adventure thread! I've been wanting to do another one for months, and now I'm finally starting! I don't have the entire story planned out yet, but I feel ready to begin, and unlike Dreaming and Awake, I hope to follow through all the way with this one. For this reason, expect the story in this one to be simpler than D&A's. Don't expect a lot of complex backstories.
Anyway, in case you don't know how this works: I will be telling a story centering around our protagonist. You enter commands telling the protagonist what to do.
I think that's everything I wanted to say... let's get this started!
Please select our hero's name and gender.
Note that the protagonist isn't human, so you can literally name them anything you want, as long as it isn't NSFW. I will reveal what the protagonist's species is after we decide on a name and gender. This character is water-based, so you may give them a water-themed name, but you don't have to. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
>Joel Joestar, male
Venus Horsefeathers; female.
>Abraham Abramovich, Male

> Akaqua, Female.
That's 3 votes for male, 2 female, 1 genderless, and a bunch of different names. Sorry, but this is kind of a problem. :P
Changing my vote to female.
Bump. We have a tie for gender, and still several names. Halp.
Joel Aquakamelech Abramovich Maximum-Horsefeathers. Or JAAMH for short.

Our hero is Joel Aquakamelech Abramovich Maximum-Horsefeathers. He is a raindrop◊ who lives in a tiny one-room house on a tiny cloud drifting through the sky. He lives alone on the cloud, but he doesn't mind. He likes looking at the scenery, although he's too scared to go down himself.
It was a dark and stormy night, and Joel couldn't sleep. After trying to sleep for a while, he can't take it anymore and decides to get out of bed.

>So wait, what's the cloud made up of if it isn't made up of us?
> Examine room.
...It's just a cloud. This world works differently.
Okay. As a little raindrop, Joel doesn't need much. Aside from his bed, his one-room house contains a closet, and a cabinet with three drawers. On top of the cabinet is an alarm clock.
> Examine alarm clock.
> Eat the alarm clock. See if it tastes like clouds.
> Well, before eating the alarm clock for breakfast, let's at least see the time!
>Go make some tea to jelp us sleep.
> Punch the alarm clock to see if it disintegrates into water vapor.
>Make alarm clock waifu.
>Look inside the closet to see what on Earth a raindrop might wear.
>Go make some tea to help us sleep.
Unfortunately, Joel doesn't have any of the things necessary to make tea, considering that, as a raindrop, he has no need for food and drink. Besides, Joel doubts it would help. He's usually able to sleep just fine, but something just feels... strange tonight. Like something big is coming.
It's one of those old-fashioned alarm clocks, with two bells on the top. It's working fine.
It's quarter to nine, time to have a bath!
Just kidding, it's 11:55 PM, a few minutes before midnight.
Joel tries to nom the alarm clock, but it seems to be made of metal.
Joel tries punching the alarm clock, confirming that it is made of metal, like an ordinary alarm clock. Joel is glad he has it, especially considering that, because he's made of water, punching the clock didn't hurt.
Joel has lived alone on this cloud for quite a while. He decides to make the alarm clock a companion of sorts. He will add it to his inventory when he finds a place to put it.
Joel opens the closet. There are no clothes inside, as he needs none, but two objects:

Whoops, I missed dvorak's command. Hold on...
> Fit the alarm clock in the Burlap sack! SCREW YOU, EARTH LOGIC! MWAHAHAHA!
