I yoinked this idea from a book called 'A book of surrealist games'. The basic idea is one person writes a sentence, preferably a sentence in which something happens, or someone does something. Then the next person writes a sentence in which the 'opposite' person does the 'opposite' thing. 'Opposite' can be completely subjective and by your personal association, e.g. water -> fire, love -> hate . . .

Just to make it clearer, an example would be:

The small dog licked the fallen ice cream.
The enormous lizard spat out a piece of brocolli.
. . .


So let's get this started - your first sentence is:

The lazy river flowed endlessly towards the sea.
she/her

The overproductive star remained frozen still at the peak of the mountain.
Pants are an illusion. And so is death.
