    What If............?

    Post by Sarah Boeckman on Thu May 16, 2013 11:44 pm

    Okay this is a lot like word association! But instead of a word you answer a question that starts with, "What if" Answers can be as funny or simple as your little Creative writer's brain wants!

    At the end you get to ask the next, "What If..." question!

    He'd sing a tribute to his father Shawn and uncle Gus.

    He would claw his way from the alien ground, the dust spilling out in loose clouds, and turn his gaze towards a new planet. Earth.

    The pages would be filled with knowledge of the dead and regret over a life that was not lived to full potential.

    They would stalk their unsuspecting prey along the lonely byways of the world.


    What if the world as we know it exists solely in the mind of one entity?

    It does and that entity's universe exists within the mind of another entity and so on and so forth.
    What if you had the chance to get your fondest wish granted, but it would cost you everything else you held dear?

    I would take the risk, knowing that it might be the very thing that destroys me.

    The countries of the world would wage war to secure their underground resources and borders, or try to find a suitable planet elsewhere to live.
    What if you woke up tomorrow and found yourself in a still-life world?

    You wouldn't wake up because time would not exist!

    I would stop reading the news, because it is depressing.

    Geico would be sued over their offensive "So easy a caveman can do it" advertising campaign.
    What if you found yourself inside your favorite story, as the antagonist, what would happen?

    I would probably lock myself in a fictional closet and cry until things returned to normal. Then, when that didn't happen, I would play out the role as closely as possible.

    What if the entire media suddenly disappeared?

    Having Quantum Leap flashbacks. Razz. If that happened I'd probably think I had gone crazy and check myself into a mental hospital.

    As long as it was a world with dancing and adventure, I'd shrug and say close enough.
    What if you were involved in an accident and gained superpowers, what would they be?

    I would gain a "luck" super-power so that I would succeed in anything I chose to do. So, I'd be a writer and actually make real money.

    I wouldn't notice a difference as it would still be silent. Laughing
    What if you woke up and found you had mind control powers, what would you do with them?

    I would make myself rich, buy a little house far away from everyone and live the rest of my life reading and writing. OR I would become a person who goes around saving lives. Very Happy. Super-hero style.

    I'd teach it to play fetch and convince everyone I developed telekinesis.
    What if you had to obey every order given to you from this point forward?

    First I would cry, then I would call MacGyver because with a paperclip and a stick of gum he got me out of jury duty.

    I would use the opportunity to go and explore the vastness of space, while selling SFC, Sol Fried Chicken, to alien life forms.
    What if pictures and paintings became gateways to alternate worlds?
