The Tower (Ambage Short Story)

Posted by SwagtronYOLO , Dec 02 2012 · 269 views

The tower was always viewed as the greatest of tests.  Many had entered, hoping to return a hero.  They never saw the light of day again.  Many said that after one reaches the very top, they would be granted a vast amount of treasure.  Others claimed there was a beautiful maiden that beasts had imprisoned, jealous of her beauty.  None had ever reached the top and lived.  That was the story, and this the beginning.

It all seemed so ordinary; that was what threw me off.  Regular sized doors, a few make-shift tables and some crates to be used as chairs lined the first room.  I had been expecting something a little more, well, grand.  My friend, an archer, raised his bow.

“Stay alert.” He ordered fiercely.  “We can’t afford to drop our guards.”

“Come on, surely you don’t believe this is the right place?”  I had been doubtful since I first laid eyes on the structure.  There only looked to be around ten stories, clearly not enough to be considered legendary.  

“It is.  I’m sure of it.”

“When you said we were going on an adventure, I had something more exciting in mind.  Well, I guess that’s what I get for being so gullible.” I picked my nails casually on the tip of my sword.  I was sure this would be boring.

The archer moved slowly toward a stairwell on the eastern side, checking ahead to see if we had company.  We did not.

“Let’s move.”  He began to climb to the next level.

“Yes, let’s…”  I rolled my eyes in disgust.  

The next level remained empty as did the one after that and the one after that.  Everything looked brown and caked in dust; not to mention calling the rooms furnished would be exaggerating.  No loot, no damsels, no threats; just a leisurely stroll through an abandoned graveyard that was once a building.
Eventually we made it to the very top.  The view was nothing special, and the roof was barren.

“Satisfied?  You dragged me all of this way for nothing.”  I hawked some spit off the side, counting the seconds it took until I heard the splat.

“On the contrary,” my friend chuckled, “We’re here.  The real test starts now.”

I looked up and gawked.   We had indeed found what we were searching for.

Not too bad. I found one comma that should've been a semicolon and maybe one or two confusing phrases, but overall pretty good.

Yeah, this was written within a 15 minute timeline, so I didn't have time to think; just write. 


It's pretty fun, though.  ^^

tekulo, no matter how bad 2017 is, it will be better for me knowing that you went into it with the username "swagtronYOLO"

A winter holiday being celebrated in November? Obviously this can only be the work of...

September 14th 2016 will forever be remembered as the day Tekulo became The Smoothest Person to Ever Live

How am I supposed to travel all of these islands?

Lapis Lazuli your water wings let you fly across the galaxy I think you can handle three islands

Hmm... I really have no strong opinion of either of them.
Both of them probably suck.

Gathered friends,

We are gathered here today to honour the passing of Tekulo. Killed by a shark and shot by a bow. Some would say no one deserves such a death. Others say he was asking for it.

Ashes to ashes. Dust to dust.


Try not to worry too much about it. Deep breaths. Scented candles. Meditation.

Imagine a whale.

A majestic, fabulous whale.

She's coming to say hello.

She's getting kinda close and invading your personal bubble.

There's not enough room for the two of you!

No, whale, noooooo!

I thought about it, but that led me on this existential space-out stream of consciousness metaphorical...thing.

It was weird.

So, lesson learned: when interacting with the personification of a concept, don't try to employ that concept on them.

The joke's always on you. You're glue in a rubber band world.




What is the location of a 2x2 LEGO brick that goes by the name Samantha?

"She's looking for a decomposed laptop that sports a five o'clock shadow."
----------- Sumiki's Dad on Samantha's Whereabouts

Ah, yes. "Hello, I'm calling on behalf of someone on the internet who says she didn't get her Delorean. No, I dont actually KNOW her, per se, or have proof she didn't get it, but she hates phone calls so this is a completely viable alternative." :P

Most people think puzzle games through and figure them out through intelligence and wit.

I just smash the square peg into the round hole until it breaks the hole big enough to go in.

Tekulo is the supreme overlord of lameness and illusory instigation and is far inferior to the illustrious and estimable Nuile, esquire, who is so awesome that a mere glimpse of his debonair, dashing handsomeness and general coolness blinds and in some cases melts eyeballs (note that I am not liable for any injuries acquired through staring at me) and is tall and eminent.

Tekulo in the Green → Black Six
Hello! Today it occured to me that I chat with a handful of staff members both on and off the site. this also made me realize they report directly to you. Whatever gossip they have spread about me behind my back, I assure you, is the truth (unless it isn't).

I remember wheb (edit: wheb is totally fetch and is in no way a typo)

Meanwhile my wardrobe is so vanilla that people chase me down the street asking me for ice cream.

Made my day. I would totally upvote this more than once if I could :3

I found a Voltex amiibo once. It was pretty terrible.


That's why I just don't follow Tekulo. You should try it =D

I get that, but that's not enough. Love can't be reliant on truth, I don't want someone not to love me because we don't believe the same truth.

Love is unconditional, love loves despite flaws. Love is selfless, kind; it protects, it hopes.

Love stops hate.

Love will win.
