Fractured Illusion

This is the thread to be in if you want to have some mindless fun. It is a game and contest, but reviews are not exchanged here.

One person will start, giving a word for people to use. This word has to be unconventional and not so known. Then, for max 3 days, people will try to make good use of this word, proving their skills as writers. The person that started the challenge declares a winner. The winner gets to choose the next word. And so the cycle continues.

Here is an example:

Person 1: NEW WORD! This round's word is highfalutin.

Person 2: The highfalutin woman was constantly flaunting herself as if she were God's gift to the Earth. In reality, no one liked her.

Person 3: The man wore his best suits everywhere he went, even to casual places like baseball games. This gave him a highfalutin appearance that kept others at bay.

Person 1: This round's winner is Person 2. CLOSED

Person 2: NEW WORD! This round's word is ______

etc.

When you use the word of the week, keep it to max two sentences per entered contributions. Max four contributions per post, but you can make how many posts you want.

Start with NEW WORD in bold, and close with CLOSED in bold. The winner has 24 hours to open a new round, otherwise it's up for anyone to grab.

It is expected that you research the word and its meaning yourself.

1. Peter's friends always mocked him for suffering from Triskaidekaphobia. They taunted him that the number 13 had cursed him real bad.

(peter is no one just an example person :p)

1. Tracy's family knew she suffered from Triskaidekaphobia so on her thirteenth birthday they played a joke and decorated the house with thirteen ribbons in each room shaped like number thirteens. Tracy refused to leave the closet the entire day.

Dear John,

It's been a great twelve days but you and me are over. I know it hurts but trust me, it's better this way; you wouldn't want to see me when my Triskaidekaphobia kicks in.

XOXO Kelly

2. The discrimination in public schools is unbearble. The teacher insisted that I do all thirteen questions, completely ignoring my severe triskaidekaphobia.

4.

Guy: "You know, Gilbert, for having Triskaidekaphobia, you're strangely comfortable with saying that word; it's like you don't know Triskaideka means thirteen."

Gilbert: "...Excuse me, I have to go to the bathroom."

3. "Honey, if I didn't know any better, I'd think you had Triskaidekaphobia or something," Thomas said jokingly while eyeing his wife's shopping list. "You forgot number thirteen on--ah!" he jumped as his wife screamed and ran from the room.

A seriously bothered man goes to seek psychological help: "Doc, I think I'm what people call a misanthrope; what should I do?" Egbert asked. The doctor didn't respond and looked indifferent to Egbert's issue mainly because Egbert was forced to talk to a chimp, who was closest in resemblance to a human.

(does that count as two sentences? o_O)

Manny the Misanthrope was well known for rejecting people's friendly advancements towards his person, and always spent his time online, raving on online forums. People wished Manny would get over himself already.

@lime

haha good one =D

This word is a tough one. I imagine I have to run a few sentences in my brain before coming up with something good, like last time :o

Roland was a first class misanthrope, wishing to rid the world of his species with atomic weapons. It was just a shame, his henchmen thought, that he had to rely so much on humans to get the job done.

Fred: "My professor defined the term misanthrope for us in class today; I found it so funny 'cause it was almost as if he was describing you, Jim!"

"Uh...cool," Jim said with a nervous chuckle while inching away from Fred.

There are three types of misanthrope in the world: Antisocailites, Sufferers and secondary school teachers.

Sally was such a gregarious person that she always kept her friends around. Even as she went to long bathroom breaks.

Bill waited for his gregarious wife to return from her plane trip and spotted her immediately when he arrived at the airport. She was the small woman who looked more at ease near a group of rough mobsters than with no one at all.
