Sometimes you just gotta write for yourself.
That’s probably why I enjoy fanfiction as much as I do. There are so many different variations to play with, and I won’t deny that sometimes I get lost in the mental exercise. Well, for whatever reason, this particular plot bunny just wouldn’t leave me alone. I have thousands of words of content and it’s been just collecting dust on my drive, staring at me. Such a tantalizing snack!
So I caved and polished a first chapter. Only the chapter never looked right. I wrote it some five or six different ways. Wouldn’t it be such an idea to choose how your fanfiction progressed? To decide how much angst or drama it had, or perhaps you’re the type who wants to read all the world building – regardless, I found myself playing with different pathways and the idea of an interactive narrative.
In the long run, it’d be an original tale of course. But I wanted to experiment first, and since I had all this content, what a better way to give it a shot? Well then, I humbly present for your consideration: Softly Sinister Slytherin, An Interactive Tale
What path will you choose? Which is your favorite? How would you like to control the story? I want all the feedback!
