This is a repost of a short story I did a while back. As it turns out my friend’s art continues to inspire me and I made a few edits to the story as well as including another piece of art she did based on the new edits.
Along the same line of thought, this will not be the only short story set in this universe and I hope to compile a whole anthology of short stories in this universe together with my friend’s art. It might take a long while, but keep an eye out for more news on that.
By the way, here is a link to my friend’s tumblr art blog so you can enjoy her stuff without my yammerings: http://mm-chibi.tumblr.com/
Now without further ado, darkness the room and enjoy the creeping horror!

Hey everyone, check through some previous posts and look for edits that have been made. They should be easy to spot, but if not I’ll give you a quick list.
Beauty and the Beast, 39 Clues, 5 Photo Repost, and Interactive Fiction.
Most of what has been added are author’s statements.
Here’s my remix video for Digital Networked Narratives.
I tried using three different famous pieces of music over the same clips one after the other to create three different ways of watching the same events. One to sound like a journey, one to sound like an epic fight, and the last to sound goofy and make people laugh.
Finally! It is done!
Sorry it took so long to get this out. Between school and the amount of editing this took, I’m just barely scraping in the deadline.
Anyway, here is “The Chase.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R92XzQmKr6M
An interactive fiction by yours truly.
Fair warning, because YouTube is being mean right now some of the links to the next videos are in boxes and others are up in the little “i” shaped icon.

Hopefully this html link works. This is a choose your own adventure story with two factors worked into it, a health and an inventory system.
If it doesn’t work, please let me know. Also, please give me any critique you can in the comments section below.
This project proved to me that I definitely should not go into programming as this took me so long to complete and only really has two variables encoded into it. A health system and an inventory system should have been simple, but keeping up with the various versions of Twine and making sure everything fit together correctly. Regardless, it was useful in learning and visualizing a story web in a way that could be applied to a multimedia or ARG story if the right clues were laid out.
I hope you all enjoy it and remember to Keep it Reel!
Hopefully this gif comes out the way I wanted to. I always liked gifs that were cyclical but you can’t tell where it begins or ends. I feel that is one of the better uses of the gif format, but that is just my opinion.
This was such a jarring moment of the fight scene for me that it was what completely takes me out of the moment every time and makes me laugh. It looks like two dudes just swinging glowing sticks at a party, so I wanted to make it look like it would go on forever with the loop. So I hope it makes you chuckle a bit.
Also, quick update, I am currently working, slowly, on an interactive written story for Twine that I will eventually adapt to an interactive video on YouTube, hopefully. Keep it Reel!
Let me know if you prefer this version or the old one!
I am still not entirely happy with how this turned out, due to the fact that finding a good shot for the killing photo is not easy. You have to convey movement, intent, and all while making sure people see what you’re using to do it. If I had unlimited resources and time, I’d reshoot it till it was perfect, but I think it’s good the way it is now as a slightly flawed but still funny photo set.
When I first experienced an ARG (Alternative Reality Game), I was young and had never even heard the term, yet I was fascinated by experiencing a story across multiple forms of media. This first ARG of mine, was the series of children’s books known as “The 39 Clues.”

This review is going to be a little different than most, but if you want to be the very best like no one ever was, you got to step outside the norm.
This is the phenomenon of Pokémon Go!

Here is the beginning of my final project for the final project of my Digital Networked Narratives class. Hopefully the “mindmup” link will let everyone see the story map.
