Task 5 - Fiction!
Fiction comes to life in dreams. Anyone who knows me knows my DG is that avatar you keep seeing in my posts. In fact, a lot of dreamers on LD4all love to explore the world of fiction in person. To wrap up this LC, let reality go and let the dream in. To quote Dr. Sidney Freedman: “Ladies and gentlemen, take my advice. Pull down your pants and slide on the ice!”
…I’m not entirely sure what that has to do with fiction other than I wanted to throw in a MAS*H reference somewhere.
Oh yes, and welcome back to Creation, Investigation, and Transformation. As the Fun team no longer exists, its members are no longer eligible to claim an opposing Team’s task without penalty. Also, the other two teams no longer have to wear party hats to do team-voted teasks
Do something that defies the laws of physics +20pts: fly, walk through a solid wall, stand upside down on the ceiling. BASICALLY FREE POINTS!
Do something you would never do in real life +20pts: and I mean you specifically. Maybe it’s stabbing someone in the shin. Maybe it’s giving money to the homeless only to then rob them and take it back. Maybe it’s dancing naked on the White House lawn. Maybe it’s something I can’t even think of. Only you know what you wouldn’t do. Credit to Thorn as the basic premise is an unused idea from LC 42
Film or star in your own movie +30pts: BLATANT LC TASK THEFT ALERT!!! Credit to Wyvern for making up this task in LC 41 . Basically, either film a movie or be filmed while starring in one. And it has to be fiction, not a documentary!
Bring an elemental to life +40pts: this is a venture into the world of fantasy. Turn an element into a living being. You could make a fire beast, a water sprite… whatever!
Have a conversation with one of your favorite fictional characters +30: yeah, just pick whoever floats your boat. I will not count fictional adaptations of historical figures unless they’re way off from the source material. Basically, no historical dramatizations. For example: Lincoln in the movie Lincoln does not count. Lincoln in the movie Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter does.
Write the dream as it’s happening +40pts: what do I mean? Imagine you just found a typewriter. Everything you write actually happens as you write it. You write that there is a car crash 30 feet from you? It happens. You write your secret crush falls madly in love with you? It happens. Remember, with great power comes a hell of a good time.
Absorb the power of an element +30pts: find an element and absorb its powers. For example, you might find a fire, suck it up, and then suddenly be able to shoot fire from your hands. And an “element” could be anything, such as rocks or trees or nuclear energy. You only have to absorb it from a source. Look up Infamous: Second Son if you need a better example.
Turn yourself and the world into an 8- or 16-bit video game +40pts for you kids, that means something like the NES or Sega Genesis. OK, fine, I’ll also accept things like the Super NES and Sega Saturn… but nothing more! I don’t care if the DCs transform, but I do want you to become a sprite.
Task 5 Ultra Team Task
And now for something different…
For this final task, each team will contribute something to a massive Ultra Team Task. To receive credit, you have to use all three parts of this task in your dream. However, you can complete this task with any other LC member, not just your teammates. Do not discuss what your team is choosing with any other team, and do not post in the topic when you have decided. PM me with your team’s decision and I will have the Ultra Team Task posted in its total.
In this Task that has never before been attempted, we will create a duel worthy of cinema that, if it were in a movie, would be talked about for all eternity!!! This will not be an easy task by any means. In fact, it’ll take a lot of control and good memory for what to do. Because of this, it is worth a TON of points.
What’s a ton of points? Can I hear +200pts? I think I can. Obviously this is is a significant number of points and could be game changing. Because of this, I will not award any partial credit. You have to complete all parts of the task at once in the same dream. No visiting the location and then having a duel somewhere else and then TFing in yet another place. All three parts much be present.
The Creation Team will decide how you will duel. Will it be a Jedi lightsaber fight? A wizard duel from Harry Potter? Turn three paces then fire? We’ll find out soon enough.
The Investigation Team will decide where you will duel. It must be a world or universe from a work of fiction. The world of Pandora from Avatar? The Island of Lilliput from Gulliver’s Travels? World 1-1 from Super Mario Brothers 3? It just keeps getting better.
The Transformation Team will decide who you get to duel as. Obi-Wan and Darth Vader? Sonic and Dr. Robotnik? Sherlock Holmes and Moriarty? You can pick which of the two you become, but you must become one and the other must be your teammate transformed.
Transformation Team Advantage
The advantage task will continue as normal. The task must include something do to with transformation and be inspired by the following word: KEY
