    Welcome and happy April.
    This is interactive vignettes, a series of open-ended Paint interactives with a self-imposed limit of five pages per interactive.
    Our current adventure is The Short, Happy Lives of Facepunch, beginning on page 1.

    <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>



    This is evening in Portlligat, a small fishing community on the Costa Brava in Spain.
    The smell of today's catch lingers in the air and many of the town's merchants are closing up shop for the day.
    Much of the day's activity has ceased, and the crowds of midday have dispersed into their respective homes.



    Far from the crowded sprawl, at the edge of a pier, it is much calmer.



    And that is where you sit.
    You are wearing a bowler hat and suit, and are staring into the distance at the fishing boats returning home.

    You check your pockets. Inside are a pocket watch and lods of emone. The watch exceeds your expectations by being one minute too fast.



    You head back to hit the town.



    Two shops are still open, the goods store for the old-timey affluent such as yourself, and the bar right next to it.

    Investigate the Shop, but look behind you before entering to make sure no one is suspiciously following you in.


    EDIT: Did I derail the thread or something?

    Yes you bastard you wrecked the thread.
    Just kidding, I lost interest when I spent five hours on the next update.
    I have new motivation, however!

    It's payday today, the bar is packed wall to wall with fishermen.

    You walk in. Barfight, round, or something else?

    You buy for everyone including yourself and begin purchasing under the influence.
    You buy another round and another until the night descends into several hours of drunken shenanigans

    You come to the next morning.


    "What bet?" You ask.
    The man claims you agreed to travel to every country bordering the Mediterranean sea within two weeks or be executed. No one else stood to win anything and no one previously wanted you dead but everyone was amused by your complete lack of judgement.



    A journey lies before you.

    Whine about the bet and argue that you made it while you were completely intoxicated.

    He goes on to say that he's fine with you quitting, but you'll need something more persuasive for other townsfolk.

    Tell the townspeople that they shouldn't hold people accountable for bets which the townspeople themselves couldn't complete either.

    You confront several people throughout the town and they decide that even while they shouldn't hold you to your bet, they will anyway.
    So you walk.

    And walk.

    And walk.

    And walk.

    And walk.

    And walk.

    And walk.

    And walk until you find the weed king on your way to Monaco.

    You say "sup broh," but without proper reverence to the weed king.
    He is angered by your disrespect and banishes you from the Earth forever.

    You know what, I love doing this, and can for the foreseeable future spare a few minutes each night or so to update more regularly.

    So, to avoid spamming the forum, I'll just use this thread for the new interactive:




    You have invented a time machine. It is painted gold, has numbers indicating the date and most importantly, allows you and anything touching you to travel as far as one month into the past or future.

    Since the bulk of the mechanism is spent housing the machine's supply of fissionable materials, the clock itself is only precise to the nearest hour.

    It seems that, so long as you keep it a secret, you have the world by its tail. With a time machine, you could right past wrongs, attain unimaginable wealth, and basically act as you please.

    What, then, will you do?

    It occurs to you to use the time machine to glean Tesla of whatever information you can.
    Alas, the machine only allows you to travel backward or forward a month. Furthermore, your supply of fissionable materials can only produce the energy required for perhaps a decade's worth of jumps. Theoretically, you could travel as far as ten years back using successive jumps, then steal some warheads or scrape some radium off of old toothpaste, and continue on, but calibrating it so that you don't end up inside a wall after a long series of jumps is another matter entirely.

    You think back.
    Ah, yes. There's this annoying asshole. Craig.
    The other day he was standing by a window.
    Just outside and down one story, however, is this huge puddle.
    You set the watch to take you thirty-four hours in the past, in the same room where you stand.

    II.

    It's a fairly routine 30 March.
    You can't wait to get home and finish that time machine of yours.


    There's Craig, the annoying asshole. Man, wouldn't it be nice to just push him out the window?

    You push him out the window and are then arrested.

    You quickly finish what you're doing and head straight home to your basement.

    There's nothing there! It's gone!
    It couldn't have been stolen. All that was there was parts for your time machine, and those weren't too valuable. No one knew about the machine. It was a complete secret and you don't recall talking to yourself over the matter, either.

    You check your watch. Your time machine was so close to being finished, it only lacked the fuel and a spring!

    You open the watch, and find it to be completely assembled.
