To celebrate their victory, the Lost Children decided to play at being pirates for the rest of the night. The moment they boarded the abandoned Jolly Roger the bickering began. Long ago they had been taught how to properly argue. They must raise their right arm politely and say, “I complain of so-and-so”; but what usually happened was that they forgot to do this or did it too much.
“I complain of Onion! I wanna be captain!”
“Well I complain of Wednesday! That’d be a real dumb name for a captain!”
“I complain of Piggy! No reason, just cause.”
“Hey, I have the conch!”
The children stopped at that. Not because they cared that Piggy had whatever a conch was but because for a moment they felt that perhaps the stories were getting mixed up somehow. Shrugging it off, they finally decided that they would all be captain for the night and figure it out the details in the morning. They each found a place to sleep on the ship and were soon fast asleep without a care in the world. How quickly children forget!
Curly Sue was having a hard time staying asleep. She kept having a dream where she was trapped in a pair of itchy tights. It was very annoying. So she was already awake when she heard a quiet knock on the door.
“What do you want? I’m tryin’ to sleep in here! Oh, it’s y’all. Hey…what smells like coffee? Were you drinkin’ that gross stuff? Ew!”
“The better to kill you with, my dear!”
“Um, wrong story dumb-dumb. I mean, hey, wai-”
Her response did nothing to stop the blindfold that was swiftly placed over her eyes. A scarf was stuffed in her mouth. She was being forced to walk the plank! Scrappy as she was, Curly Sue put up a good fight, but it was useless. The terrible tick-tock of the Crocodile loomed below. No splash was heard. The beast swallowed her whole!
In the morning, when they discovered Curly Sue was missing, they remembered the game. Most of them were filled with dread, but one of them was rather annoyed.
“Drat! I wanted that one!”
Curly Sue is dead. She was a LOST CHILD (TOWN).

A word of caution: It is quite impossible to say how time does wear on in the Neverland, where it is calculated by moons and suns, and there are ever so many more of them than on the mainland. Some days might be shorter than others, and because of Peter’s strong imagination things that were impossible before have now become possible. I would not be a bit surprised if one of the Lost Children woke up one morning to find that they have grown up!
The rules are fairly simple. Which is why your narrator is not repeating them anymore. See previous days for the unabridged rules.
Please note that you will need to make a handful of game-related comments per Day (three to six at least). Your humble narrator has been told that Peter feels very sad and angry when people don’t play, so you will become the Crocodile’s lunch if you don’t participate. Roleplaying is encouraged but not required.
NO EDITING OR DELETING for any reason, including typos.
Directly quoting or screenshotting QT is not allowed.
Remember to have fun! This is a game of murder, but it is still just a game. 🙂
