    Cool First Line Story Game

    Hi guys, Pendragon here. It's been a while, I know. I used play a lot of these games which some of you may remember. What I want to do here is simple. We're staring a story. Where's it going? I don't know, but let's keep it PG, ok? It's simple enough. I start with the first line from a famous book. The next person adds a line from another famous book. Or any published book for that matter. Do tell us where the quote comes from. When the subject shifts, make new paragraphs. It can be fun.

    Here goes: From MOBY DICK.

    Call me Ismael.

    Have fun!
    Some of us laugh
    Some of us cry
    Some of us smoke
    Some of us lie
    But it's all just the way
    that we cope with our lives...

    From 'The Chrysalids'

    When I was quite small, I would sometimes dream of a city - which was strange because it began before I even knew what a city was.
    "My warm hands have made the paper limp,
    So that its feel reminds me of slept-in sheets: comfortable and safe"

    From David Copperfield by Charles Dickens

    "Whether I shall turn out to be the hero of my own life, or whether that station will be held by anybody else, these pages must show."
    "You can always find something better than death."

    Story so far: Call me Ismael. When I was quite small, I would sometimes dream of a city - which was strange because it began before I even knew what a city was. Whether I shall turn out to be the hero of my own life, or whether that station will be held by anybody else, these pages must show.
