Hi Guys,

I've been writing 69-word, theme-based stories for the digital lifestyle magazine, The Brown Scooter, every month.

Read off and let me know what you think/feel :)


You know you have been playing Unreal Tournament for quite a long time when...

You run around the whole house looking for the ‘INVISIBILITY’ when your mom comes pestering behind you to get some housework done.

When you sleep, you dream of missiles and shock beams being fired straight at you!

You are so bored of a particular lecture that you throw a Frisbee at the teacher in an attempt to ‘TELEFRAG’ him/her.

You go into the toilet hoping to come out of the bathroom.

You occasionally run to the top of your terrace and climb on top of the water tank looking for the ‘SHIELD BELT’.

After donning the belt, you try to jump on to the other building thinking that you are in ‘MORPHEUS’. (Warning: This could end up reducing the number of members in your family by 1.)

On Independence Day, u along with four of ur friends run to top of various bldgs to capture the flags to earn points.

U try to frag ur brother cause you are wearing all red and he is denim-clad.

Then, u run around fragging ur family and neighbours aiming for an ‘ULTRA KILL’.

U occasionally look under ur bed, sofa and the cupboard searching for reinforcements.

Your vocab changes: Neighbours = Bots, Colony = Map

Finally, when someone gets hurt in ur house, u run around screaming ‘MEDIC’.

You call ur brother Kragoth, ur sister Ivana and cousins Drimacus, Botanika and Rhea.

you have had a tiff with your boss and the next day you hope to not take the local trains and ride on either the MANTA, RAPTOR or SCORPION to fight back.
Am not a die-hard fan but my brother is one, so have seen him play. umm...I have also played once, Not bad :-)
