Pretty straightforward! What’s the first thing your MC says in your story? Put as many characters as you’d like!

I’ll start things off:

Phoebe: “Does it rain here often?”
Natalie: “Not at all.”
Owen: “Who the hell are you?”

Medora: "Most of its bioluminescent microorganisms or natural gas, but there’s lots of—”

Ilene: “Ghosts aren’t real. They can always put shit in fire to make it change color. I used to do it all the time in the winter.”

Nothing like drinking in a graveyard with your wasted bffs and being a nerd while talking about a magic show. Don’t sit on graves, kids.

I have many stories so prepare.

To Believe in Peter Pan
Lili: “I’m positive I’m Lili. I don’t think so; I know so.”
Pan: “Step aside, boys.”
Felix: “Nobody who’s going to hurt you.”
Lia: “Where do you think you’re going?”

To Believe in the Demon King
Asa: “It doesn’t matter to any of you.”

Lost Girl in Neverland
Aria: “No, no-no!”
Peter: “Nothing, I’m just curious. I’ve never seen a girl here, at least not after Wendy.”

Unnatural Desires
Mya: “You guys can be so adorable yet so disgusting at the same time.”
Eli: “I just want to remind you now that there’s no point in us ever speaking to each other. We are classmates, nothing more. Let’s try to enjoy our year by forgetting each other’s existence.”
Juliet: “I’m sorry but this man can’t help himself from anything to do with me.”

The Perfect Man
Noah: “Are you calling about the ad? May I ask who I’m speaking with?”
Ava: “Home sweet home…”
Tyler: “Hello, Ava. I’m Tyler Baker. I will be your new soulmate.”

Beauty of a Crimson Soul
Angel: “My apologies, Mr. Dyer. I am your guardian angel.”

Lost in the Deep Blue Sea
Raina: “You can answer your own question.”
Mr. Pan: “Usually there aren’t any mermaids when I come down here. I don’t come here often but I sure know I never see mermaids at Mermaid Lagoon.”
Cora: “Why don’t you ever sing out loud? It’s a mermaid tradition.”
Viviane: “We tried to warn you, Raina. Why do you think mermaids have created the society we live in? We did it for a reason.”

Family Traditions
Holly: “Just things I happen to like. Things that interest me.”
Aalia: “Oh please, just call me Lia.”

Meant to Be
Kitty: “All I did was set the tarantulas free. I say it’s not punishment worthy.”
Holly: “Come on. Let’s go to lunch. I want to eat Subway. That’s what I’m craving.”
Lizzie: “What animal rights are we talking about? Because nobody denies that animals are abused. But we as a society benefit off animals in many ways.”
Cerise: “Welcome to my, welcome to my, ooh.”
Daring: “Wow, an alto. Impressive. Almost as impressive as my voice.”
Dexter: “Are you sure this is a good idea?”
Chase: “Oh, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to.”
