Today's Sunday prompt requires a bit of explaining - this is a Choose Your Own Adventure type activity. Here's how we're going to do it.

1. Post the beginnings of a story, leaving off at an important/fun/silly decision making point. (for example, the character opens up the door, and finds.....)

2. Give multiple choices for what might lie beyond (in our example, it could be - A Package, A Strip-o-Gram, An Angry Neighbor)

3. Someone comments on your story and chooses one of the options.

4. You write another story snippet, once again leaving off at a decision point with multiple choices...

5. Someone comments and chooses an option, you write from that point, etc.

6. Repeat until a) one of the choices winds up in an ending of sorts (a disaster? a happy ending? just the end of the tale), or b) you get tired of continuing the story.

Here's where it gets interesting. There are two open-ended fics I'd like to continue for Quinn. So, not only do you get to choose what happens in the adventure, you get to pick the adventure itself:
  1. Quinn has to use the "holy ground" rule or die.
    1. Who was chasing her and why?
    2. Does someone let her in?
    3. How does it affect her life?
  2. Quinn has been incarcerated by Cardinal Richelieu. How does she escape? Does she:
    1. Overpower the guards and sneak out of the palace?
    2. The old bedsheet-out-the-window routine?
    3. She finds a secret passage?
