Once upon a time...

We sometimes do story chains, where we take turns in weaving bits of a tale or two!
This was today's with Squidge and Moppet...

Me: Once upon a time there was a little Furby called George. He was very fluffy, and was pink with blue...
Moppet: ...Furbies! He my bet wend [best friend], THE END!

Squidge: Once upon a time there was a tiny person called JJ, and he was a super ninja with flying feathers!
Me: He flew to China and soared up the highest mountain, and jumped off to test out his flying feathers. He whizzed all the way down to the bottom and landed in a...
Moppet: ...power ranger hut! He went pew pew! [does gun gesture]
Squidge: He killed all the bad guys with his ninja powers, but then they killed him and he died, but then he came back to life and...
Me: ...all the bad guys were so terrified of this magic ninja that could rise from the dead, that they ran for the ocean shouting, "Eeeeeeaaaaaauuurgh!" and flapping their arms, and then swam off into the sunset. As soon as they'd gone, JJ...
Moppet: Oh I see myself! My shadow! My shadow! La la laaaa, la la! [aaand, onto Squidge's turn! Storyteller number two is taking a break.]
Squidge: ...JJ realised he'd lost his flying feathers, and he'd teleported to the bad guys with none of his weapons. Then he saw a dragon megazord it was red and it was ginooooormous and it had wings, and he got inside it and controlled it. You see? Then he went inside his ninja costume and turned the light on and found all his ninja weapons. Yah yah yaaah! [Does ninja moves] More bad guys came and...
Me: ...they saw the cheese sandwich JJ had made and squealed, "Oh no! Not cheese sandwiches! They're deadly to our kind! RUUUN!" And JJ and his friends quickly made lots and lots of cheese sandwiches and threw them at the bad guys. "Nooooo, we're meeeeltiiiiing..." And then Moppet appeared because she loves jumping in puddles with Squidge, so they both jumped in icky bad guy puddles until it was time to go, then they got in the car which had...
Moppet: ...a steering wheel! Brum brum BRUM! THE END!

Squidge: One day there was a dude who did this [runs up to wall and kicks both feet onto it and lands backwards on the bed]...
Me: He had seven feet, all with suckers on the bottom, so he could do lots of tricks like bouncing off walls and climbing on ceilings *schloop schloop schloop*
Squidge: And then the bad guys came and tried to kill him! So he...
Me: ...schlooped his foot suckers onto their faces like this *schloops on Squidge's cheek*, and threeeeew them into a far away land. Byeee!
Squidge: Then he bounced on the trampoline...
Me: ...and he bounced so high he went weeeeeee over the roof and went splat into the giant puddle of paint on the drive. Splash!
Moppet: THE! END! [laughs raucously] 


This all took considerably longer than it reads now, and had rather a lot of actions and laughter, it was fun! :)
