  • IWT5--The Allegory of my Cave

    The Allegory of my Cave

    Consider the following definitions:

    Allegory:

    An expressive style that uses fictional characters and events to describe some subject by suggestive resemblances; an extended metaphor.

    A figurative mode of representation conveying a meaning other than the literal

    A form of extended metaphor in which objects and persons in a narrative, either in prose or verse, are equated with meanings that lie outside the narrative itself. Thus it represents one thing in the guise of another—an abstraction in that of a concrete image…

    A story or visual image with a second distinct meaning partially hidden behind its literal or visible meaning...


    This is your mission, should you choose to accept it. It can be happy or sad, backwards or forwards, furry or flat, but the one thing it cannot be is literal. I charge you all with the sacred quest of creating an allegorical story for the IWT5.

    Entries will be due on October 31, 2008.

    You mean like when a guy has sex with a girl heís actually raping her and in doing so heís really performing an act of violence against not just her, but against all of womankind due to the innate male frustration of not being able to give life and only able to take it away?

    Or like when two women are friends itís on a much higher level than that of guys, because all women are naturally bisexual. So when they decide to explore each others bodies after a wild night of poetry and crying it doesnít mean theyíre lesbians, theyíre just being friendly and the whole act of eating each other out isnít sexual at all, itís actually a spiritual thing in the name of the Mother Goddess Giver of all life and defender against all penis oppressors?

    Because if thatís what youíre suggesting, Iím not writing such sexist trash.

      Yes, that is it exactly. I want you to write all about why you wish you had a vagina. Except since it's allegory, you can't say it out loud like that. Your protagonist has to be a squirrel named Fuzzyrugg who finds shelter in a moistened cave surrounded by tangles of scrubby scrub brush.

        Oh well that's different then.

        But I'm going to make my protagonist a castrated midget instead. Having a squirrel protagonist is a little too close to furriness for my liking.

        I think having a disembodied vagina that floats around my character's head speaking to him would be neat as well. It could represent the power of women's vaginas and their ability to get men to do anything.

          You see! You're inspired already! Look out everyone cuz the Master's got this one cinched!

          Just don't forget to give your disembodied floating vagina a name. I wonder what it would be...

            Scratch that. The disembodied vagina is too obvious. It will instead be a floating taco with a pink color and will have a fiesty Latina accent. She'll constantly be upset with the midget and telling him to eat her to make her temporarily less upset.

            I guess I could call her Willow, Blossom, Peach or Cherry. Though calling a taco Cherry or Peach might get confusing to the reader, oh well they need to pay better attention to the symbolism.


            Holy shit, it's disturbing that I could probably make this into a real story...

              Count me in...

              ... for the allegory...
              ... not in for the vagina...
              ... or taco eatting...

              just include me.

                  This thread is very very disturbing. A 16 year old, sane handsomelad has no place among you... you... freaks. But I'm neither sane and have never been handsome.

                  I'm in I guess.

                  On a completely different note, I am experiencing writer's block. Not fun at all.

                        Oh man. It is WAAAY too early in the morning for this. *quaffs the rest of his beer* I think I urinated in my sister's panties.

                        Oh wait. Yep. Sure did. But why am I wearing my sister's panties? Oh wait. Ya... Um, let's move on.

                        WHAT? SHUT UP! Look, I'm just continuing what I started and left unfinished last night. This doesn't make me an alcoholic. I started drinking five years ago, took a few hour nap, and now I'm just keepin my buzz goin'. Just sorta keepin a good thing rollin. That's all. I am NOT an alcoholic.

                        I mean...I'm in I guess. But I think that technically EndMaster has already snatched for himself another victory before the contest has even started. Now it's really just a matter of vying for second place.

                        Looky there, sun's rising. Time to go back to bed!

                          Remember, guys, allegories are cool! Pan's Labyrinth was, like, an allegory! So don't be all whiny, mmkay? Let your imaginations expand. Let in the unicorns, the castrated midgets, the disembodied floating vaginas, the nubile elven princesses and of course our Hero, FUZZYRUGG THE SQUIRREL!! Allegories are fucking awesome.

                            So are unicorns!

                            Is Taco Bell open yet?

                            I've been suffering from writer's block lately as well, Thoric. I think it's because I keep falling down and hitting my head. I gotta stop doing that.

                            Does Taco Bell has a breakfast menu? Mmmm. Breakfast TACOS!!!!

                            Tacos, Tacos in the morning!

                            TACOS TACOS TACOS!

                              It seems I have managed to get rid of my writer's block. I started working on my new story for IS today. Could only manage to write one room today. Hoping to write atleast 2 more tonight.
