A Kalga Christmas Carol[FanFic]

Postby Ajac on Mon Dec 24, 2007 6:31 pm

It just kinda happened. Heh. All rights reserved, all permissions asked for.


A KALGA CHRISTMAS CAROL

We open our scene on the cold bedchamber of the miser, Ebenezer Kalga. He sits alone in his cold room, eating his gruel, alone. He is as cold and cruel as his surroundings, and greedy as sin. But all that is about to change.
Suddenly, he hears a rattling outside his door. Through the wall pushes a spirit bound in chains, the spirit of his deceased partner, Hel Marley! She moans, and rattles her chains again, and he turns to gaze upon her and is struck in horror.

Hel:"Ebenezer Kalga!"
Kalga: "Gah! Who are you?!"
Hel: "In life, I was your friend and partner, Hel Marley!"
Kalga: "But you've been dead for seven years, this very night!"
Hel: "EBENEZER! DO YOU DOUBT YOUR SENSES?!"
Kalga: "But such a small thing may fool them! You may be a bit of undigested lamb or beef. There's more of Gravy than of Grave to you."
She moans loudly, and shakes her chains all about the head of Kalga.
Kalga:"GAH! Ok, ok, I BELIEVE!"
Hel: "Good. These things are heavy, it hurts to shake them."
Kalga: "Er...yeah. Ok, what'd'you want with me?"
Hel: "It is required of every soul to leave the world somewhat better than they found it. But if you do not go forth in life, your spirit is doomed to do so in death, wearing a chain of their sins!"
Kalga:"Ah. Heavy."
Hel: "Yeah. And not just the chain. But that's not the point! The point is, your chain was as long as this seven years past. By now, it is twice this weight! I have thus secured for you a chance to escape my fate."
Kalga:"You were always a good friend, Marley."
Hel:"You will be visited by Three Ghosts!"
Kalga: "Is this the chance you spoke of?"
Hel:"Yes."
Kalga:"In that case I'd rather not."
Hel:"KAAAALGAAAA!"
Kalga:"Right! I said nothing!"
Hel:"The first shall come at the stroke of 1, the second at the stroke of 2, and the third at the stroke of 3. Farewell, Ebenezer! Look for me no more in this world!"
The apparition faded away, leaving Kalga alone.
Kalga:"Yep. I've officially gone nutso. No more leftover gruel, that's the thing..."
Ebenezer Kalga wandered off to bed, and closed the curtains around it.

Hey, covert admitting.

Also, I'm not talking to you until it's worth the time it takes to explain things.

Well maybe if you didn't like using big words to much. I remember having to google Iambic Pentameter one time.....

. . .

All I'll say in regards to this is... I have http://www.dictionary.com listed as one of my favorites. I access it every day, usually more than once, to make sure I understand a word being used or that I'm using a word correctly. I am in no way, shape, or form ashamed of this.

That's all I'm saying.

Iambic Pentameter isn't a hard thing to explain. It's just a special type of Anapestic meter. It's just iambic foot set to five feet per line. It's a really simple notion of literature, used most often and pretty much over-glorified by Shakespeare. Now define Irony. That'll take you more than a little to explain. XP

This seems interesting X3 carry on.

Frimping awesome. Made me laugh out loud.

That's all very well and good, but what's an iamb, eh? Or an Anapest, for that matter?

Dunno. But irony is really hard to explain. My English Teacher made me write a paper about the meaning of irony, and took off points when I didn't have a definition.

Remember when I said this would be finished today? Saint Nicholas left me a life in my stocking, so I've got plans today. :P Finished EVENTUALLY.

Ajac, what is this "life" of which you speak? I know nothing but my computer. I think you'll need to explain a little more.

Irony: 1. A descriptive word used to describe something that has iron-like properties

2. An item that contains iron.

I prefer the word ferrous. Means the same thing, but makes me sound like I know what I am talking about.

But 'with iron' does convey the message just as well.
