13 Reasons To Evacuate a Castle
The plague has come.
The dogs have turned feral.
The vikings have broken through the walls.
The cesspit has overflowed.
The peasants are revolting.
The rushes are infested with fleas.
The tapestries have caught on fire.
The chimneys are clogged.
The men are drunk on mead and getting grabby.
The women are drunk on mead and are running outside.
A falcon is loose in the hall.
Bats are roosting in the roof beams.
The suits of armor have come alive.
Bonus: The castle is haunted.

All I can think about is how stinky people must have been. :)Delete
a few of those may be good reason to stay though you know....smiles....ReplyDelete
Yeah, it could go either way back in those days.Delete
Haunted? Hah! If only this worked!ReplyDelete
I have been haunting the Netherworld Hotel for years! It has not caused anyone to run away yet!
Maybe you need to watch Beetlejuice to get some haunting ideas. :)Delete
These are awesome. I sure wish I had a castle, and I think a haunted one would be even better. Happy Thursday!ReplyDelete
Me, too. This is why Disney is so popular.Delete
Is this the opposite of "Have fun storming the castle boys..." ?ReplyDelete
Yes. Everything has its opposite. We've got to maintain the balance of the universe.Delete
I never understood how in haunted house horror movies people don't just get out of the house!ReplyDelete
Just leaving is the perfect solution to many problems and people just don't do it.Delete
Yep. all these are good reasons.ReplyDelete
I would definitely evacuate.Delete
I could see a bunch of those happening all at the same time. Definitely makes you want to get back to the future.ReplyDelete
It must have been so stinky back then.Delete
I'm sure you mean the peasants are in revolt, no? Of course, they might be revolting too, but probably afew of them are reasonably attractive.ReplyDelete
I did mean both at the same time. I like to multi-task.Delete
The cesspits would send me running. Just imagining the aroma makes my eyes water!ReplyDelete
I'd be outside most of the time. I wouldn't need to evacuate.Delete
What a fun list!ReplyDelete
I like to imagine what would happen in situations I'll never be in. :)Delete
ha ha...love it! You never know...ReplyDelete
Could be in an alternate universe...Delete
very funny! :)ReplyDelete
I luke the armours come to live the most...it would make good comedy ;)
I may have been remembering Harry Potter.Delete
I like the idea of feral dogs and revolting peasants.ReplyDelete
They go hand-in-hand or maybe paw-in-hand.Delete
Oh, I love your list. Especially "the suits of armor have come alive", but all are great items to this list! I'm sure you won't regret buying the book, it's so much fun :)ReplyDelete
I have a list up on Friday Flash Dot Org this week, thought writers could come up with some fun items for unwise impersonations to do in a public bath. Have any ideas? Drop by -- http://fridayflash.org/press/2013/03/21/take-a-moment-to-write-a-curious-list-today/
This was so much fun. I got my own book (on your recommendation) in paper because it is that kind of book.Delete
Incredible quest there. What happened after? Take care!ReplyDelete
