I ran across this super fun challenge over on Becky’s CoffeeCocktailsandBooks blog, and thought it would be super fun to participate in. While I am not taking part in the reading challenge, the Winter Biannual Bibliothon, I am a huge fan of Mad Libs and seeing the crazy stories that are created out of them. With that, here is how it went!
YOUR WORD PROMPTS:
- Book character
- Magical artifact
- Large number

- Book character (same as #1)
- Magical land you DO NOT want to visit

- Villain or least favourite character

- Kaz Brekker
- Sacred Sphynx
- Kaz Brekker

And so now we take these words and plug them into the story. Oh gosh, I can only see how this is going to turn out for Kaz 😂
The 2019 Winter Biannual Bibliothon was in full swing, but you were craving just a bit more adventure. As you settle in to pick up your current read, Kaz Brekker barges into your room, surprising you. You’re told that Kaz Brekker’s land is in trouble and you’re needed to aid in finding the sacred sphinx, the only item that will restore peace and that you’re the only person that can help.
Ecstatic to finally be the chosen one, you agree to help Kai Brekker on this quest! As you begin to travel to their land, you find out that others have tried and failed to retrieve this magical artifact and that you are the last hope. You also find out that because no one has succeeded in this quest, no one knows what you’re up against. There are rumours that you need to defeat 104,551,411 bowtruckles.
Excited, yet nervous, you and Kaz Brekker locate the wise elven protector of the land to learn as much as you can about this artifact and how to retrieve it. The elf informs you the artifact is located in the deepest part of Gilead, to your dismay. You and Kaz Brekker venture for 1923 to make it to this new land.
Along your journey, you spent your free hour’s training to master dancing, hoping this new skill will give you an advantage against your unknown foe. Shortly after arriving at this dangerous land, you finally are face to face with your nemesis, H.H. Holmes.
Though you’ve been training, coming face to face with your foe begins to strike you with fear. Your companion encourages you to be strong and reminds you that you’ve been preparing for this. When you go to use your new skill, you learn that H.H. Holmes is a master. Nervous, you use the only maneuver you have left. You challenge them to hockey. Taken aback by this tactic, they hesitate before reluctantly accepting your challenge. Filled with new confidence, you quickly defeat them!
Begrudgingly, H.H. Holmes awards you the magical artifact, vowing revenge.
You and Kaz Brekker return to their homeland, where you are greeted with cheers and applause. You’re thanked repeatedly for returning the artifact and saving the land. Kaz even shows their gratitude by giving you a hug.
The next thing you know, you are back home with your book in hand. For a moment, you think you made up the whole thing, but then you see the glint of the magical artifact out of the corner of your eye. When you look over, nothing is there, yet you know your adventure was real. With a smile growing, your turn back to your book, already ready for another adventure.
Well, that was one heck of a ride! This is a super cool idea, and I can’t wait to hop around and see what other people have come up with. As for my social media for my entry, it is as follows:
