Letís seeÖ

Quote:
I dare you to have someone sing the Perish Song
Bonus points if it's a Lapras
Cookie if your novel has nothing to do with Pokemon, and Lapras is just a character's name

One of my characters is a huge [but closeted] Pokemon nerd. He was going to have a Pokemon cuddly toy. So Iím taking up to bonus points on here. He shall have Lapras sing the Perish Song to his [long suffering] boyfriend when they have their first falling out.

Quote:
I dare you to do a cameo in your own story

Funny story, in that my past two NaNo novels have included me in them in some way, as the characters meet their authorÖ Intentionally, too, itís not even accidental fourth wall breakage. In this novel, well, my school setting needs some students, so Iíll take this. ^^

Quote:
I dare you to have someone change their hair color every chapter they appear in. Extra points if he's a guy. A cookie if this randomly starts happening and no one questions it.

You know, Iím going to go up to cookie with this one. Although, someone will question it eventually. Cole needed a fun little quirk for me to work with.


*I dare you to have one of your characters/a group of your character spontaneously burst into song and dance, outside of a context in which you would expect singing. [Think the big scenes High School Musical. You know, the ones that donít seem to make senseÖ]
*Bonus points if, because itís not rehearsed, something goes wrong during it.
*Double bonus points if no one comments on how weird spontaneous singing is.
*A cookie if someone /does/ pick up on the fact that itís weird, and makes a comment along the lines of, ĎThis isnít High School Musical/Glee/insert such a movie/show of choice, is it?í

*I dare you to include a character that speaks only in quotes from your favourite movie/book/TV show/song.
*Bonus points if no one notices.
*Triple bonus points if all of their comments make sense in context and are useful.

DBP: If someone else is able to explain to the panicking McDonalds staff what is wrong with the character
TBP: If this is a major plot point.
Taking this one. I can actually see my main character's best friend doing this. I don't know if I can make it a major plot point though.

Taking this one too. :D Do I get more bonus points if he's the antagonist? :-P

Let's see...
I dare you to have someone say "the cake is a lie!"
Bonus points if everyone gets it.
Cookie if no one gets it.
Super giant cookie if the cake actually is a lie and it's not just a Portal joke.

Speaking of Portal, I dare you to include at least one line from either "Still Alive" or "Want You Gone".
Bonus points if you use more than one.

Super giant cookie if the person sings it and it's still relevant to the plot.

I dare you to have someone sing the Super Happy Fun Lift song.
Bonus points if they're not actually in an elevator.

While we're on the subject, I dare you to include an evil elevator.

I dare you to include the phrase "I'll be in my bunk".




But there's no sense crying over every mistake.
You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.
And the Science gets done.
And you make a neat gun.
For the people who are still alive.

It's funny, because I already have a sentient stuffed penguin in the story. But the TBP about making him the antagonist just gave me an idea. :D

I dare you to include a scene where a character cries in the rain.
BP if they are having a tearful confrontation with another character.
DBP if the entire scene is incredibly cheesy.
TBP if they are crying just because they like to cry.

I dare you to have a subplot where a character tries to follow a rainbow.

DBP if the character manages to taste the rainbow.
TBP if the character meets a leprechaun on the way.
