Ideas for great one-liners (was: Lines Dump)

#1 Post by redeyesblackpanda » Sun Aug 26, 2012 8:03 pm

Ever had a line that you've thought up, where you've thought "Oh, that'd be a cool line to be used some day! I'm not sure I ever will end up using it though... It's not really an 'idea' for the idea dump though..."
Well, if this has happened to you, this is the solution to all your problems sort of!

This thread is for the dumping of lines, or a sequence of lines, which you may never end up using, but which you find interesting.

Alright then, I'll start off with a line dump myself...
"So... the golden rule is to 'treat others the way you want to be treated,' right? ...what if you're into S&M?"
Anyway, have fun, everyone. :lol:

Not really checking the forums any more due to time constraints, so if you want to contact me, PM. I'll get a notification and log in. :mrgreen:
Also, I've been hit and run posting, which means I don't see many replies. If you want to respond to something I've said, also feel free to PM me.

NOTE: if you've got questions about vnovel or things like that, it's Leon that you should be contacting. Leon's been pretty much handling everything, but due to various reasons, I've had to withdraw entirely.

Ooo, here are some:

Sweet Earth: If thou were truly past thy hatred of Syrians beyond my city-storming self, thou wouldst tolerate more Syrian arses near thine!

Hippodamia: You should anoint your own tongues with cleansing wines before using Anointed YHVH Saves to cleanse my tongue.

Snow White Bitterness: I yearn for salvation from God, but I want to earn it without his grace.

Dhammasasana: Yes, I truly remember with pleasure our wedding night, when thou wert truly too drunk to remain conscious once in bed.

The Merciful's Slave: I was such a poor girl growing up, with only one solid diamond ball to play with.

Marcellina: Considering what awaits us tonight, I have never before been gladder that I am not a nun.

Nausicaa: Thy slaves, I am sure, will testify freely about thy great love of liberty for all people.

White Silk: Music is wrong, but since warfare is also, we let evil guide evil.

According to Flesh: I wish that thou were a crow, so that I might burn thy skin black and pluck thy hairs for arrows to kill thy people.

Life is the process of killing beliefs. (oh well.. this is my "religion". I couldn't find an appropriated one word which means 'static thought/desire' in English)

This would have been better as a yearly contest, but which saint would step up to be a martyr forever?

One of these days I'm going to write an anti-eroge where the heroine goes around keeping a Faceless guy from raping and pillaging her female classmates -- and herself. Her assistant is a male "childhood friend" with really Bad ideas on how to go about doing it (and an ulterior motive). This was a line I came up with in one of the scenes where she actually Tries one of his ideas.

Another line from that is:
-- "Do I want to know how you know where all the best raping spots in the school are?"

"Grab your things, son. We're going home."

"You don't understand. See, we won't stop just because you're more powerful. We won't cower in fear just because you're intimidating. We won't give up just because you have more men, more equipment, more of everything. We won't surrender just because there is no hope to win. Every single one of us will fight until their last breath or until we win - because fighting you is the only thing left for us to do. If we'd stop fighting, we'd die, becoming just one more of the places you conquered and assimilated. So we'll fight."

"Madam, I assure you we can create a perfectly functioning biomechanical replacement for your 'broken heart' for a reasonable price. Please contact our sales department at ..."
