This story represents the fusion of Bronto and machine. I shittily scraped all extant Katestory text and fed it into a predictive text keyboard.
1.) Click here!
2.) Wait for database to load up
3.) Begin typing!
4.) Once you start the markov train running, you can use keyboard keys 0-9 and alt-numbers to immediately feed in suggested text.
- Contribute as you wish, but try to let the bot type for you when possible.
- Start by typing in a word (preferably related to the previous post), and then try to complete semi-coherent sentences using the suggestions below.
- If you have a clear idea where the sentence should go and it's not showing up as a suggestion, feel free to insert sparingly. This is a dinosaur/machine collaboration, after all.
- Start the next sentence with a word of your choice, or hit shuffle to get some katestory-related suggestions.
- You can expand the number of options by clicking on the sidebar and changing the word grid from 3x6 to 4x7 (this slows down the page quite a bit though).
- It works best if you just completely ignore punctuation (in particular quotation marks), and then edit them in afterward.
- In general, you need to decide when to terminate a sentence, since the text generator will just keep going and generate run-on sentences.
- If the bot is going in circles, or you need new text suggestions, hit the Shuffle button for fresh material.
UPDATE 12/17/17: The original botnik predictive keyboard was only using the first 20% or so of the Katestory text. The current link should be trained on all of it.

It was something truly insane that he had managed to find his friends.
Obviously, he morphed into sabin and said,
"i'm thaddeus boyd and now we're starting this story. "
