bilbo, The Contributor
Unfortunately my head is far too full, so stories will be forthcoming... Someday.
This is literally a fairy thingamabob. For the Riddles and Puzzles contest entry
Honorable Mention: Riddles & Puzzles 2016
I know what it is and that's what matters
*Important* please note that the first page is a prologue and not the first page of the story. There is a character switch after the prologue.
There are fixed events in time. No matter the variables applied, sometimes there is only one outcome.
This is story is really all the same thing in different manifestations. It starts with the decision of a young man. This is my first story so pardon me as I try to get my bearings on how to write storygames! I've edited this in a way that hopefully makes it more clear, and thank you for all the suggestions given by those who read it the first time!
On a side note, did you know the police contact the first workable address that a dead person has in their possession at the time of death?
The player is a young man on his deathbed who is pulled into his subconscious where his memories are displaced. In order to survive he must remember who he is. There are two ways to reach the 'best' answer (or at least the most knowledgeable) several average answers, and several bad.

For December contest I'm considering doing the whole thing in verse. Example:
In Dulenmoore where Ravens cry
a fearsome war was passing by
with the neighboring kingdom of Galensberg
who spat on peace of action and word.
Their first offense was beyond obscene,
for it was they who stole the queen.
One day as she sat beside the brook,
her eyes and thoughts trapped in a book,
Galensberg’s heir, the prince Leopold
Carried out the orders he had been told.
To snatch the queen, to make it known
The North lands would appease him, and them alone.
Would that get annoying to read after a while?

Im available to co-author and write if you need someone last minute. I write best under pressure so I can contribute a significant amount with three days to go:p

The word 'thing' is usually good to avoid. 'Is' should be used intentionally since it makes the sentence passive. 'Groovy' is a bit dated. It's hard to know since words are mostly situational.
