Blogwalk: Down To the Roots

You begin to make your way back down the Tree. At least you start climbing downwards, but you notice something very, very odd as you move from branch to branch. When you move one way there seems to be a clearing or meadow below you, but when you go the other way there seems to be a thick, fern-choked hollow in purple twilight. How very strange. When you go a bit farther you see a frozen expanse beneath a gibbous moon grown huge and swollen in the cold black night of a desolate winterscape. A bit farther around the trunk of the tree and you spot a distant rocky desert. Clearly, the Tree is at the center of a number of different locations that seem to all overlap somehow.

Whichever way you go, there seems to be another option...

So where do you want to go?

This is a continuation of Porky's Fantasy Blogwalk, a collaborative cross-blog Choose Your Own Adventure narrative that begins at The Oak and expands outwards across the blog-o-sphere as explained by the prime instigator and friendly coordinator of this online collaborative narrative, Porky himself in his 'Blogging Our Adventures' post.

If you have an idea for a scene that might come before, during or after this one, write it, post it on your blog, and link to this post as one of the choices/options available from your scene's post. It's okay to present more options even if those scenes haven't been written just yet. There's plenty of room for everyone and alternative paths are much appreciated and encouraged. If you do write a scene that links to any of the ones at this blog, please leave a link in the comments here so that we can add your scene into the link options here. Everyone is welcome. Make sure you check out some of the other paths that are already available—you might get some ideas for thing to add that none of us have gotten to yet!

To begin your own Blogwalk as a reader-explorer, we suggest going back to the BEGINNING.

If you'd be interested in participating by contributing your own scenes as a Blogwalk writer-blogger then read the Summary and Guidelines at Porky's blog.


  1. Oh yes. I like how you're blowing it open with these options. You've definitely picked up on the ambiguous nature of the setting and that potential for very different feelings about the space, and the character of course - who are we? Lots to run with here.

  2. Cool. Glad you like the direction we're going. more options means more people can buy-in or get involved without undue disruption. There's also more options for making connections, like growing synapses. We'll be doing more installments of Blogwalk Scenes on a weekly basis.
