Our first of the three starting stories! And, sense the story is there on the page, down here is just the options. Such an simpler set up!
 
~@~
~ A band of soldiers for an evil overlord abduct the princess. ~
~ The Princess finds an odd merchant's shop and has a look around. ~
~ The Princess accidentally offends an old witch who curses her. ~
~ The Princess sets out on a trip to a neighboring kingdom. ~
~ But it wasn't all fun as Hallow's Eve approached... ~
~@~
Back to the root of it all.
~@~
If you're interested to help out and see this move forward, let me know.

Can you make all of the choices links

Just came across this story posted by CreeperFoxBoy on furaffinity. Decided I'd be better searching for the original, as he's just posting pages without the links, which I expect will make it hard to follow.


Does he have the artist's permission to repost it elsewhere? If not, you might want to check it out and report it.

Thank you for letting me know. I'll get to work on handling things.

It is very rare that a tf story has such plot implemented into it. And being an extensive branching story makes it so fun for curious minds like mine. You have my admiration.

And that just from the Overlord branch i can't wait to explore the rest.

How to defeat a knight splash water on their armour. (Because it would rust up)

I have seen a good number of stories posted on DA. I have seen my fair share of good, bad, and...weird stories. Most were just normal stories, written with a straight plot, from beginning to end. I am not bothered by that. However, this is the first story that I have seen that incorporates branching plots. Even better, this story uses links, giving us readers the choice to determine the course of the plot. Thus, I ended up having fun clicking on various links, and saying what happens if I, the reader, determine the course of the princess' story.

Dragon-FangX and all who contributed, this is an amazing project! You had both fun and quality as you wrote this branching story. Plus, it made a very unique spin on the "princess story," by having multiple story branches. The technique of using links to branch into different plots itself was one of the most unique ways I've ever seen in DA. Hence, the whole story has a great sense of impact, drawing me into the story! Thank you for all your hard work!

This whole "branching story" thing is not that original. It’s still surprising that they pulled it off on DeviantArt, but it is nothing new. Interactive stories, which are branching stories made by a plethora of authors, are one of the main features of the website writing.com. Even in analog (paper) literature, there are authors who wrote branching or even game stories, like Richard Petit, with his series "Passepeur" and "Zoombira", which I’ve been reading since at least a dozen years, and most of those were already out.

I do want to acknowledge the massive work behind all this, as it is very entertaining, well-written and well-drawn, but let’s face the facts: they didn’t reinvent the wheel.

Of course.

This is one of the first stories I have seen doing this on DA.

Absolutely loving this CYOA

Can someone please tell me how to get the Dragon ending?
Otakezt's avatar

It starts with the curse, then make her more mature and overly beautiful. Make her become egotistic, cover herself in gold, then she'll tf into a dragon

Dwaaa, she look cute.
I'm just wondering, but are some of the endings still in development or is it a dead project? because I tried to do something with the the botto option for the first slide and the bottom one for the one after that and all those routes lead to unlinked choices, so I assume it's either being reworked or that it's dead, still cool either way.

All options are subject to commissioning. If they don't get commissioned, they don't get done. Sad but thats how the series is run. 
oh, so that's what that thingon your profile was, question, how much real money does that transfer to in USD for the commission?
Dragon-FangX's avatar
For Princess, $14

Ya ever come back to this page and cry at how many bad ends she's received over the years?
Seekerlano's avatar
Which story branches can I contribute?
Dragon-FangX's avatar
Whichever ones you want to.
Seekerlano's avatar
I want to help out with the parts of the princess (Roya) fighting against the Overlord, and the head swap parts in the Halloween.

Let me know if that is possible, and how we can negotiate.
