The Very Unfortunate Day (Story)

DancerDancer Community Champion Posts: 7,916 Master Poster
Some of you may remember the "Fortunately Unfortunately Game" which was started up on the boards a couple of years ago. For those who don`t know, each user took it in terms to do a sentence (or sometimes more) about something either fortunate or unfortunate that happened based on the previous post. Someone suggested making it into a story called The Very Unfortunate Day (not sure who it was but you rock!) So here is The Very Unfortunate Day. It might not make sense but that`s the point of it. To make the posts not too long and to give a build-up of the story, I will be adding 1 chapter at a time to each post.

    Chapter 1: The Interview
    There was a day that I had a job interview which meant it was crucial for me to wake up on time. Fortunately, I woke up at the right time and didn`t oversleep. Unfortunately, I was late for my job interview. Fortunately, I rang the job interviewer, and they gave me an additional half hour to get there. Unfortunately, I saw a McDonalds on the way there and got a bit sidetracked so still did not make it to the job interview in the additional half hour I was given. Fortunately, the boss was pleased that I had the most important meal of the day, and I started on a good note with my interview. Unfortunately, the boss decided I was not fit for the job and that I needed to find elsewhere to work. Fortunately, the boss explained that they were retiring soon, and they needed someone to take over their job. Unfortunately, I had already applied to another job in McDonalds, and I had to decline.

    Chapter 2: McDonalds
    Fortunately, I got the job in McDonalds, and I got promoted to manager. Unfortunately, I had to deal with an angry mum on my first shift, because there was no more McFlurries available for her kids. Fortunately, the kids were polite and asked for something else instead. Unfortunately, as I was about to make their order I noticed that the ice cream machine was broken and when I turned back to explain we were out of ice cream, an alien space invasion was taking place outside of the McDonalds.

    Chapter 3: Aliens and Flying Dogs
    Fortunately, I survived, and the alien invasion went away. Unfortunately, I`ve been injected with a substance that makes me lay an alien egg twice a week. Fortunately, I had a cute alien baby that I have raised. Unfortunately, the alien pooped all over the dog. Fortunately, I was able to clean the poop off my dog, but my dog gained the ability to fly. Unfortunately, the alien pooping powers wore off and my alien died, my dog lost its ability to fly too so everything was back to plain old normal.

    Chapter 4: Space Journey
    Fortunately, I won the lottery one day and had enough to go to space. Unfortunately, my rocket fell mid-air and exploded with all the money. Fortunately, I managed to have a parachute on my rocket and landed on the moon safely. Unfortunately, the oxygen tanks had run out, so I had to find a way to earth as soon as possible. Fortunately, I brought my houseplant, and it made enough oxygen for me. Unfortunately, my tap was broken so I couldn`t water the plant. Fortunately, a rocket came and rescued me.

    Chapter 5: The Kidnapping
    Unfortunately, the rocket was from a different planet and not Earth. I had been kidnapped by some aliens who were now taking me to their leader on their home planet. Fortunately, they are much more intelligent than me and are keeping me as a pet and giving me lots of treats and saying I`m the goodest boy/girl/non-binary pet. Unfortunately, little did I know that they were training me to enter an alien gladiator competition and I would be up against a well-known alien gladiator. Fortunately, the well-known alien gladiator was battling a cold, so was easy to defeat, and I won the competition with what translated into 800,000 in prize money.

    Chapter 6: Stolen Treasure
    Unfortunately, when I was going back home to my alien owners, a spaceship appeared in front of me and abducted me. When I was in the spaceship, I met the owner of the ship who said that they were a space pirate, and they needed some help with finding someone who stole all their treasure. Fortunately, while we were searching, we managed to bump into the TARDIS. The Doctor and Rose Tyler said they were also looking for this treasure, so we all started looking for it. Unfortunately, while we were searching for the said treasure, we bumped into a rather rude dalek along the way. Fortunately, the Doctor reversed the polarity and reset the universe, so the pesky dalek is now out of the way.

    Chapter 7: The Showdown
    Unfortunately, the dalek found a way to sneak back in and it tried to exterminate the Doctor in revenge. Fortunately, Darvos appeared out of nowhere and sacrificed himself saving the Doctor which caused the dalek to disappear into another universe. Unfortunately, the Cybermen from Parallel Earth appeared and tried to upgrade everyone. Fortunately, The Torchwood team and Captain Jack were alerted that the cybermen were attacking the Doctor. So, they decided to fight the cybermen. Unfortunately, the Torchwood team and Captain Jack needed more backup, as these were the newest edition of the Cybermen, so a long fight between forces of good and evil ensued. Fortunately, The Creator of The Earth noticed and knew what to do. They decided to send down Aziraphale and Crowley from 'Good Omens', to sort out the Cybermen.

    Chapter 8: The Hunt Must Continue
    Unfortunately, we still hadn't found the said treasure, so we had to keep searching. Fortunately, there was a path of shining stones guiding the way. Unfortunately, that lead to the restaurant at the end of the universe, which we weren't looking for. Fortunately, after we left the restaurant at the end of the universe, we managed to find the said treasure which happened to be Russel T Davies, the man himself, and he was drinking tea with Steven Fry. We all spoke to Russell T Davis and gave him a future story on the 10th Doctor and Rose saving the world. He thanked us all for the idea and then I had to go home, as it was getting late. Also, unfortunately I broke my leg back down to Earth.

    Chapter 9: Back to Earth
    Fortunately, on my way back down to Earth, I went to the hospital, and they fixed my broken leg. Unfortunately, the hospital exploded. Fortunately, I survived the blast with no life changing injuries. Unfortunately, I ended up getting lost in the middle of nowhere after leaving the hospital. Fortunately, I found a small cabin near the woods. Unfortunately, the cabin had a lost child inside who started attacking me thinking I was a predator.

    Chapter 10: Alien Child
    Fortunately, the Cyberwoman, Lisa, resurrected, and she has no more cyberman instinct and so, her and Ianto (also resurrected) calmed the child down using this alien technology that sprays stuff that smells good. Unfortunately, we realised that the alien technology being calming to the child meant that the child was not human and was instead an alien and they were calmed by having something familiar rather than by the smell. Fortunately, I managed to find a fidget popper toy and the alien child seemed satisfied by the toy. Unfortunately, the fidget popper was actually a keypad and suddenly I heard a loud rumbling sound.

    Chapter 11: Adopt an Alien
    Fortunately, the loud rumbling sound came from a friendly spaceship with an alien inside who said that they were the child's parent. Unfortunately, because the child had our scent on it, and the weird "calms aliens down with smells" machine's scent, they wouldn't take them back, because suddenly my assumptions about extraterrestrial life are based on my assumptions about terrestrial birds. Fortunately, my phone started ringing and I answered it and heard an alien talking to me who wanted to adopt the child whilst I was thinking "Am I losing my mind or is this real?" Unfortunately, the alien child kept staring at me as if it wanted to be adopted by me. Fortunately, I found a way to adopt the alien, and called it Stitch. Unfortunately, Stitch was a very funny and mischievous alien and he liked to play pranks on me now and then.

    Chapter 12: Back to McDonalds
    Fortunately, he soon calmed down and became the best pet alien I'd ever had, then I decided to go to McDonalds. Unfortunately, when we went to McDonalds, as I was about to order a McFlurry for my pet alien Stitch, I bumped into my manager who asked me where I was for the last few days. Fortunately, a Karen came asking for the manager, so I didn’t have to answer the manager’s question and I buggered off with Stitch.

    Chapter 13: Rescued by the AA
    Unfortunately, on the way home, my car broke down in the middle of the road. Fortunately, I had my AA membership still covered, so I rang rescue breakdown. Unfortunately, the rescue response said that it would take them an hour to get there. Fortunately, my radio was working still, so we listened to it for the hour until they showed up. Unfortunately, by the time the rescue service van turned up, the person who rescued our car freaked out as they saw my pet alien Stitch. Unfortunately, we went got home there was a racoon standing in my doorway and he said his name was Tom Nook. Fortunately, Tom Nook wanted to let me know that I had paid off my home loan, so me and Stitch celebrated. Unfortunately, a storm suddenly came sweeping in. Fortunately, Stitch used his alien powers to turn the storm into a rainbow.

    Chapter 14: Computer Says No
    Unfortunately, the next day I discovered that we had ran out of milk for my cereal. Fortunately, I was able to go to the shop to buy some milk. Unfortunately, the store had not received their supply of milk, so had to wait until noon, by which then it was too late to have breakfast. Fortunately, I decided to go to Costa Coffee with Stitch for a coffee instead. Unfortunately, Carol Beer from Little Britain was the barista there. When I tried to order a Salted Caramel Frappe, plus a Strawberry Cooler for Stitch, she told me "computer says no", so we left empty handed.

Fortunately, Stitch used his anti-poison powers to remove the poison then he sued Starbucks for poisoning his drink. Unfortunately, later that night, we dreamt of none other than Freddy Krueger and he was threatening to slash us. Fortunately, Stitch gave Freddy Krueger some Doritos, and he stopped threatening us. We became good friends with Freddy.

    Chapter 16: Snowstorm
    Unfortunately, a bad thundersnow storm was scheduled for today, and everyone was ordered by the government to stay indoors. Fortunately, I phoned up my friend who was a snow yeti and he used a hairdryer to melt the snowstorm. Unfortunately, the snow yeti's hairdryer burnt out on the top layer of the snow that had settled on the ground. Fortunately, Elsa came along and got rid of the snow. Unfortunately, the thunderstorm was still happening, due to the FLDSMDFR going nuts, and it turned out all the snow was giant scoops of ice cream rather than snow. Fortunately, I loved ice cream, so I ate the snow-looking ice cream and there was no more snow.

    Chapter 17: Day at the Beach
    Unfortunately, I still had to go to work that day. Fortunately, my boss said I could have the day off. Unfortunately, he told me in person, so I took the train for nothing. Fortunately, the train was heading to the beach, so I spent the day at the beach with Stitch. Unfortunately, it was the pointiest rock beach ever and you can’t even go to the beach without the rocks piercing your shoes. You lift your foot up and away as soon as you feel a rock touching your skin. Fortunately, the rock beach turned out to be a rock candy beach, so I ate my way through all the rock candy. Unfortunately, all my teeth are gone now.

    Chapter 18: Why you don`t trust the Dentist
    Fortunately, I decided to go to my local dentist, and they made me some dentures I can wear. Unfortunately, the dentures always seem to try to take a bite out of you. Fortunately, I went back to my local dentist, and they took out the dentures and gave me new ones. Unfortunately, I was the victim of a rogue trader dentist, and my brand-new dentures broke when I was eating my lunch with Stitch. Fortunately, I got my good friend Saul who's a lawyer to sue the dentist and I won lots of money. Unfortunately, all the money I won turned out to be monopoly money. Fortunately, it wasn't just monopoly money, but it also turned out to be monopoly McDonalds tokens, so I went to Maccies and got lots of free food to eat.

    Unfortunately, the free food was all expired and made me get ill. Fortunately, I had some medicine in my bag to stop me getting very ill.

Fortunately, Sonic the Hedgehog stopped him in time and saved the ARK. Unfortunately, Dr Who reappeared and needed my help befriending some daleks. Fortunately, we worked with Torchwood and U.N.I.T.'s Martha Jones to get rid of the daleks.

    Chapter 21: Merry Christmas
    Unfortunately, the shops had run out of Christmas presents thanks to the Grinch and had to wait to tomorrow to buy more presents. Fortunately, I phoned my friend Buddy who lives in the North Pole to see if he could find a way of helping me get Christmas presents for everyone. Unfortunately, he changed his phone number, so I ended up talking to a reindeer. Fortunately, the reindeer was really friendly and took me to everyone. Unfortunately, everyone already had given all their presents and gone home. Fortunately, when I went home I had a big surprise as all my friends threw a surprise Christmas party for me and Stitch.

    Chapter 22: Do not forget the food shop
    Unfortunately, then I realised that we had no food left the next morning, and the shops were closed. Fortunately, I received a knock on the door and when I opened it, a kind woman was there with 3 bags. Unfortunately, the 3 bags I received from the old women contained lots of rubbish. Fortunately, in with the rubbish there was lots of tasty food which may have been out of date. Unfortunately, I got food poisoning from the ham. Fortunately, I found some medicine in my kitchen cabinet and decided to take the medicine which helped a bit with the food poisoning from the bad ham. Unfortunately, the medicine also caused extreme hair growth everywhere on my body. Fortunately, I had a razor, so I was able to remove the excess hair from my body.

    Chapter 23: The Accident
    Unfortunately, I ended up with razor burn. Fortunately, I had plasters in my cupboard which I put on to cover and hide the razor burns on my body. Unfortunately, the only plasters I had were Peppa Pig themed. Fortunately, I love Peppa Pig, so I carried on normally with my day and decided to watch some TV. Unfortunately, the TV exploded. Fortunately, I called up the TV repair man who came to my house and repaired the TV for me. Unfortunately, the repair cost £500.

    Chapter 24: That`s what best friends are for
    Fortunately, I found a scratch card and I won £500 so was able to pay for the cost of the repairs. Unfortunately, my pet pelican had stolen the scratch card. Fortunately, the repair man was actually my best friend in disguise and repaired for tv for free, so I didn't have to pay the £500. Fortunately, I had insured my TV in case of breakdowns, and a few days later the company I got my TV from originally got my TV fully replaced and got the latest state of the art model.

    Chapter 25: The Chase
    Unfortunately, what I didn't realise what that the TV came with 3D glasses that could place you in the show you were watching, and I accidentally got stuck in my favourite TV show for a month. Fortunately, it meant I was able to catch up on what I had fallen behind on. Unfortunately, I ended up being chased by a lion inside the TV. Fortunately, the lion turned out to be two people in a pantomime lion-costume who were just having a laugh! Unfortunately, they ate me anyway. Fortunately, they didn’t like the taste so spat me out but then a fox came! Unfortunately, the fox peed on me. Fortunately, I found some paper towels, so I didn't smell like fox pee all day. The very unfortunate day then became a fortunate day.
