    Another Stereotypical CYOA of Relatively Silly Atmosphere

    Oh, boy, are we having another one of those silly old CYOAs that don't really make a lot of sense other than that they're here for the heck of it?
    Oh, yes, we are.

    So, here's our rather limbless protagonist/sentient keyhole (you're not sure which one) who stands to be standing in some dimly lit room. That weird rectangle under him is probably some sort of text field, most likely for this character's name. Though, given how the box is just sitting there and isn't exactly a suitable size for holding text, that's just a guess you're throwing.
    What is this guy's name, anyway?

    His name must be Locksmith.
    It's completely unpredictable.

    +1 for Locksmith!
    I love you. You, specifically. I love you to the depths of the earth and beyond the stars.

    Which is why the world needs more of this.

    You desperately try to find a way to enter text into the rectangle to enter that ridiculously long name, but find it's probably just a static image that you can't interact with!
    Suddenly, the rectangle seems to shift downward in the picture as if it's falling, revealing, strangely enough, that exact name! The sentient keyhole looks downward to notice the name and seems to be in shock. How in the world is his full legal name on the ground?! Oh my GOD, that is just embarrasing! No wonder he just has everyone call him Kleebs!
    Now that you think about, how in the world did you know what the heck Kleebs was thinking? You don't think you have extrasensory powers, and certainly not those of mind-reading.
    Oh, and the rectangle thing just got twice as large, but that's probably insignificant.



    As the keyhole looks particularly angry and the revealing of his full legal name on the ground of his newly rented apartment (or so his thoughts claim), the angle of view seems to abruptly change, revealing what seem to be really badly drawing rectangular prisms with lines across the top sides of each. Kleeb's thoughts tell you these are the boxes with all of his stuff.
    Funny, because if those were there, you would have sworn you would have seen those boxes in one of the first two panels. But seeing what kind of CYOA this is, you should have expected as much.
    Now what is Kleebs going to do?

    Take the boxes and use them to build a friend. The only friend poor Kleebs has.

    Practice your pick-up lines. You shouldn't approach these attractive boxes without some preparation.

    Open the boxes. Then build a sword from the stuff you find and name is something epic.

    (First time here, forgive me if I do this wrong)

    Empty one of the boxes and ride in it like a car out the door.
    Because you can.

    Package-peanut insulated Box Armor.

    You know you want it.

    Should the peanuts not be there, normal Box Armor could suffice.

    Kleebs proceeds to OH MY GOD where'd those weird circular things come from?! Wait... it looks like ti's attaching to a box near Kleebs. Are those his HANDS?! Where in the world are his arms?!
    Anyway, he assembles the boxes into a more humanoid shape and proceeds to try out his various pickup lines, even though there seems to be no mouth on the keyhole to show that he's even talking at all. Just that old <3 emote. You find it amusing how a keyhole is doting on a cardboard person.

    Oh, there's Kleeb's mouth. Wait, what's Kleebs doing? Is he disassembling that person eh was just doting on? Why is he bringing that big flat box to his... Is he EATING the box?!
    ...no Kleebs, that is not how you get yourself a girl. You don't even know if keyholes have genders, anyway.

    Hold on, it seems as if Kleebs is taking out some sort of weird stick thing from the person's left leg. What the heck is that, anyway?
    Kleebs's thoughts indicate that it's a sword, which happens to be pretty convenient. He's too dumb to think of a cool name for his sword, he just names it "Sword."
    He's pretty sure trying to hide it behind his back to pull out in combat would end up impaling him sooner or later, so he just leaves the sword on the ground.

    ALRIGHT! It's time to look for the legendary Plot! Yes! This is going to be the best adventure ever!
    You're pretty sure he's gonna have to find a way to get past that door first, though.

    Kleebs dons a cardboard box as a hat (he claims that it's a helmet, but you're tempted to say that cardboard isn't protecting against concussions any time soon, despite the fact that you don't know if keyholes can even get concussions) and slips inside a rather large box (though he seems to be lacking feet, so you're not sure how). He seems to be making car noises (though without the flapping of his mouth, you're not sure if it's him), but the box doesn't seem to be moving.
    This is incredibly silly.

    Kleebs gets out of the box, again without feet, and quickly throws a jab at the door!
    The door refuses to be razzled by such a low-level attack, though. If only his name was Locksmith of something. He could have opened this door easily.

    Re: Another Stereotypical CYOA of Relatively Silly Atmosphere

    Of course, there's only one thing to do now.

    You open the door by turning its doorknob.

    Unfortunately, since Kleebs doesn't have fingers, and the doorknob is more or less just a 2-D circle on the door, Kleebs would just have to place himself onto the doorknob like the good little keyhole he is, and wait for someone to open the door with a key now that there's a keyhole.

    Pick your nose.

    I mean, pick the lock.

    Actually, do both. After all, we don't know where his nose is either.

    Make a hole in the space-time continuum and walk through into the outside world, or at least downstairs so you can craft some hands

    Use both hands to attempt to turn the knob and open the door.
    Thank you.

    I also suggest that you spoilerbox your stuff, so it's easier on computers with slower loading times.
