Fortunately. Unfortunately.

I thought it'd be fun to restart an old story game some of you might remember.

With the OP I'll begin a story with a character name and a simple sentence. Each poster will continue the story with a new sentence, alternating between fortunately and unfortunately. Every couple of pages, when it runs out of steam, somebody can post new story and start us fresh (but hold off as long as you can before hitting that reset button).

So to start:

Fortunately Sir Kellington was happy to begin his quest for the dragon's gilded toenail.

Now somebody continues the story with a sentence that starts with Unfortunately.... and ruin Sir Kellington's day.

Unfortunately, dragons gilded toenails come still attached to dragon, and Sir Kellington's toenails come off easier...

Fortunately the great dragon Sleeth was a bit near-sighted and always kept his toenails dipped in fresh gold.
 
Unfortunately he'd gotten in a shipment of chocolate gold and had mixed up the dipping gold and the chocolate gold.

Fortunately, chocolate was a favorite of Princess Daphne, who just then wandered out into the main area of the cave.

Unfortunately Princess Daphne had an irrational fear of weapons, armor, horses, and all things knightly.

Unfortunately for the Dragon, the knight had trained as a Ninja and knew 12 ways to kill with a tea strainer.

Fortunately, Sir Kellington's grand plan for acquiring the gilded toenail involved offering the great dragon Sleeth a pedicure.

Unfortunalety the great dragon Sleeth had a roommate training to become a licensed pedicurist, giving free pedicures for practise

Fortunately Princess Daphne also needed a pedicure and promptly offered her foot for the dragon's roommate.

Unfortunately, her foot was stuck in a glass slipper and if it was to come off, the truth about something...secret...might get revealed.
 
Unfortunately dragons only love them because they gossip like the hen's down in Sir Kellingtons coop (You should hear what they have to say about the castle next door)

Fortunately, the hens down in Sir Kellington's coop are mostly deaf, and so are prone to making up their own rumors.

Unfortunately, if the dragon's roommate saw the secret in Princess Daphne's shoe, he would spin it into something awful and worse.
