Unexpected Adventure Syndrome


THIS IS A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT!

Did you live a normal life until suddenly, out of nowhere, the following occurred?

  • Unexpected, possibly unexplained, end of civilisation event (zombies, general non-zombie disease, monsters from the deep, evil aliens, killer plants etc...)
  • Awoke to "Chosen One" status
  • Discovery of superpowers
  • Abduction
  • Volunteering to be a scientific test subject resulting in telekinetic and/or other paranormal abilities
  • Trapped in haunted building
  • Swept up in treasure hunting/spying/criminal foiling events without meaning to
  • Plane crash/lost in the wilderness/stuck on desert island
  • Realising you live in a dystopian society you must single-handedly overthrow

If so, you may be suffering from Unexpected Adventure Syndrome.

DON'T PANIC.  STAY CALM.

Rely on your wits, charm and main character status to ensure you survive! Even if the others die, you must survive for potential sequels!

OVERCOME AND SURVIVE! BE STRONG! YOU ARE THE CHOSEN ONE!

(This PSA has been brought to you by Miss Cole and copious amounts of tea.)

Yum!

  1. Story idea: MC wakes up to find out he's the bad guy in an adventure. According to the conventions of "Unexpected Adventure Syndrome," he faces certain defeat, even death. Is he going to play the part and have fun with it while he can, or is he going to try the impossible and re-write the script? :)

    I know, I'm a fool for throwing this out there. I should probably write it myself. But maybe someone else can do it better. Cole. :)

  2. Colin, I second Miss Cole! That's an amazing idea - if you write it, I'd read it. ;)
