Writing

My name is H.S. Milenkovic. I am a writer with an MFA in Interactive Media, and a BS in Computer Science. I am a South Florida resident. Online, I usually go by Snuffysam, and I often stamp my works with the label “Snuffysam Media”.

I have been a storyteller all my life. My writing style generally revolves around over-the-top comedy, with large, cartoony set-pieces.

Zebugu: And look who’s joining her! Governor Taci Ramino. I didn’t think you’d betray me for at least another year!

Taci: You knew I was planning on usurping you all this time?!

Zebugu: Well, there were some subtle hints. Like that time you said-

Taci (flashback): Hi! My name’s Taci Ramino! I sure hope you die without an heir so that the people can finally rule for themselves!

Zebugu: And that other time when you said-

Taci (flashback): …And if you don’t die fast enough, I might just have to kill you myself!

Zebugu: And of course, when you said-

Taci (flashback): By the way, how strong of a swimmer are you? Do you have any fatal allergies? Would you describe your throat as “easily slittable”?

Zebugu: That was when I knew something was up.

Nightmurder threw my future self onto the steps of the administrative building. As my body landed, I noticed a bright yellow piece of fabric from underneath my Shakom concert merch. Nightmurder seemed to notice this too. He leaned down, and pulled up my future self’s t-shirt. Underneath the Shakom shirt, the corpse was wearing merchandise from Electric Zebra.

Nightmurder recoiled in shock.

“That’s right,” scoffed a voice from behind me. “That man you just killed… was an imposter.”

I looked up as a man walked by my right. The man was shirtless, and his muscles were glistening with sweat and blood. His dark hair was a little messy, but that made it look even more perfect. His dark eyes and full lips glittered in the light of the rising sun, his strong jaw made him an imposing figure, and his pink nose piercing brought the whole face together in a perfect bow. He also had a cute butt.

The man held his right hand out, and summoned a katana out of thin air. With his left hand, the man brushed his perfect hair out of his perfect face, making droplets fly off in all directions. He did a dramatic pose, pointing towards the sky, and I almost fainted at the sight.

My real future self had arrived.

Silque: So, what’s the news?

Intel Advisor: Things are getting worse. The ANT’s attacks are getting more bold. They destroyed a security checkpoint last week, and stole a truck full of supplies…

War Advisor: Unfortunately, we’re beginning to run out of options. We’ve tried negotiating with their leaders, we’ve tried heavier military presence at towns by the border. But every day, we still lose ground to these insurgents…

Silque: Negotiating with leaders? Military at the border? Well there’s your problem, silly! The ANT still has leaders and a border! If we want to get rid of the enemy so badly, let’s just get rid of them!

War Advisor: You mean… bomb the entire territory?

Silque: Kablooey~! Who needs a smelly “Autonomous Nation of Tadalet” anyway? We’ll burn the whole place down, and build a nice big water park in its place! I could finally get a chance to show off my new swimsuit to the empire~! What’s stopping you?

Engineering Advisor: I mean… we have the weaponry to do that, yes. But… the ANT’s population numbers in the thousands. Are those direct orders, your majesty?

Silque: You bet! Get rid of the ANT by tomorrow, or I’ll feed you to my crocodile!

Intel Advisor: …Right. Well, um… I think we’re done here. Gentlemen, your majesty…?

Alena: …Oruma, did you get all that?

Oruma: Loud and clear. If they follow through on the Empress’s orders… that’s an attack tomorrow. I’ll have to relay this to the President. You did good, Fly On The Wall. Get to the drop point, we’ll be there to extract you in ten minutes.

Alena: Affirmative!

Achilles: Hey, witch! Pick on a celestial body your own size!

Hapi: Ah, well if it isn’t the Lunar Demolition Force! A human, a Vaz, and an android. And look, the berry-flavored one’s here too! Still confident in the power of your armor to protect you, greater than colon three?

Lily: Stupid rabbit! Nobody threatens my partners and gets away with it! Now, what in Sam Hill are you doin’ here?!

Hapi: You don’t know much about witchcraft, do you, colon three? You see, many of my most potent potions require moonlight to be brewed. Which means that I can’t brew those potions while the sun’s out. So, I figured, why not make it easier for myself? I’ll destroy every star in the galaxy! That way, the only light visible will be moonlight!!!

Kit: Curses, greater than colon left parenthesis! Your logic may be impeccable, witch, but your plan shall not come to fruition!

Hapi: Y’know… we’re not so different, Lunar Demolition Force. You destroy moons, and I… well, I just dream bigger. Surely there’s some of you unsatisfied with your current career aspirations? Any takers? How about you, ninja?

Ska’ay: H-hey, Hapi! You’re dead wrong! The Lunar Demolition Force isn’t just a business… it’s a family! A-and we’ll never be torn apart!

Hapi: Hm. Very well, semi-colon three. If it’s a fight you want… then it’s a fight you’ll get, Lunar Demolition Force!

The Adventures of Detective Sleuth

The Adventures of Detective Sleuth is a parody of choose-your-own-adventure games. Some games in this genre have a problem where if the player picks a single wrong choice, the player immediately loses, and the game ends. The Adventures of Detective Sleuth takes this concept and flips it around – if the player makes a single correct choice, the main character immediately solves the case, and the game ends. The only way to continue playing the game is to make as many bad choices as possible.

Genre: Comedy, Mystery
Format: Interactive Narrative
Length: ~2000 Words

The man says that his name is Greg Stabberman. You tell him that you knew that already – you are, after all, an incredible detective.

After some work, the two of you push the older man’s corpse out the window. He falls 20 stories to the street below, past your dentist’s office.

Theresa: Mom, what are we still doing here?

Tammy: I told you already, Theresa! We’re the common jewel thieves who broke into the Fire Temple and stole the Fire Crystal, not knowing what it truly was. Once Prince Eddie gets through the dungeon I designed, you get to fight him.
