Raindrops is just your average Ponyville pegasus looking forward to her favourite day of the year- Winter Wrap Up. But what happens when she finds a weird book under the snow on her front doorstep?
Raindrops' Wrap Up is a "choosable path adventure" that we'll write together! I'll provide the outcomes- all I need from you is suggestions on each chapter for what to do next. I'll write up a maximum of three suggestions for each one, and we'll see where we go from there!
EDIT: lilspikeywikey over on youtube has embarked on a bold reading of this ridiculous experiment! Click here to go have a listen.
What's going on here?
What's going on here is that this is going to be a 'choosable path adventure'.
What's one of those?
Really? Okay, well, a choosable path adventure is like a regular story, but when you're reading it instead of the main character doing what they want to do, they have to do what YOU want them to do.
Oh cool! So is it finished?
Not yet. And I'll need your help.
Okay, so Pinkie's a demon, alright? And her non-euclidean cookies are-
Hold yer horses, kiddo. I'm doing the writing. All I need from you are decisions about what to do next. When you read a chapter, at the bottom there will be at least one of the following:
1) choices to make, and links to follow if you want to make those choices
2) a request for more possible choices in the comments
3) THE END
If you just want to read the story, follow the link for the choice you want and it'll take you to another chapter in this story. If there's a request for choices, and there's not a choice you like, then please make a comment explaining what you'd like Raindrops to do. If there's a Requests closed for this chapter! under the choices, then that means you were too slow this time and you'll just have to make do with the choices that are available to you. If it's THE END, then hooray! You have completed Raindrops' Wrap Up. Good for you!
You'll write up every suggestion?
Nah. There's a maximum of three choices and I'll usually add them in the order they're asked, but please refrain from "asking" an entire path through the story. Lets get as many ponies in as possible! Also, no Mature requests, please. That 'Teen' rating is non-negotiable. Finally, I get final discretion over which choices I go for. If I didn't go for your choice, please don't take it personally- you'll get other chances to put requests in!
Why not? She's a background pony with no canon personality, so you can feel free to make her whatever kind of mare suits your fancy.
Why the "Random" tag?
Er, this could literally go anywhere. There could be comedic paths, romance, deep interpersonal tragedy, the end of ponykind, dismantling Equestria as a memetic construct created by the inhabitants of a pony gulag in the Lunar republic- what else could I have tagged it as? Also, if we actually include all of those things, I will count myself as having won a small prize.
How big is this going to get?
Let's find out.
Alright, let's get going!
Sweet! Please click Chapter One to start Raindrops' Wrap Up.
