Nice work!

Nothing kills romance like a potentially rhyming name! Awesome work.

Emma Blemma! Ha! Time to leave, Emma.

I like this Jake-Ryan Blemma guy! She could always keep her maiden name!

gravatar srah - April 4, 2008 - 10:55 AM -

That's true. But he's also covered in cherry pie filling. :D

gravatar Lara - April 4, 2008 - 11:09 AM -

This is hilarious! Excellent work!

emma blemma. freakin hilarious.

gravatar Jess - April 4, 2008 - 11:33 AM -

This is awesome! Except that the poor person who had to make Emma stay will get no traffic at all because OBVIOUSLY she should leave.

gravatar chris - April 4, 2008 - 11:34 AM -

Hahaha - this is sooo much more fun than working!

gravatar srah - April 4, 2008 - 11:50 AM -

@Jess - No way! The whole point of Choose Your Own Adventure is to cheat and read all avenues offered to you before choosing. :D And both of the options have great endings!

You would stay with him BECAUSE he's covered in cherry pie filling.

gravatar srah - April 4, 2008 - 11:50 AM -

He's not a pie!

By the way, thank you for this great set-up. I also love how the endings get mixed up. Not that I'm going to ruin it for anyone...

Emma Blemma! I love it!

"His name is Robert Bobby? He's Bobby Bobby?!"

(Anyone?)

gravatar srah - April 4, 2008 - 1:05 PM -

I was thinking of Julia Goolia from The Wedding Singer. :D

"I'm just going to go change into something that's not covered in fruit filling." --if I had a dollar for every time I've been told that...

When I first read your story I was stuck on the bit about Sixteen Candles (it pains me to admit this, but I've never seen it)... and it threw me into an all out panic! Regardless, it worked out in the end (but not for poor Jake-Ryan). Well played!

gravatar Anika - April 5, 2008 - 4:17 AM -

Ha! I just love the Trapper Keeper detail. And overall, quite fabulous, indeed!

gravatar srah - April 5, 2008 - 8:08 AM -

@kir - I've only seen it once, 6 or 7 years ago, so I didn't even remember there was a character called Jake Ryan in it when that detail was fed to me by Stefanie. I did extensive research looked him up on Wikipedia and discovered that apparently Jake Ryan is, like, the Mr Darcy of 1980s teen movies and women everywhere are obsessed with him.

This is a great idea. Anyone here know how long it takes to play though this? I used to own like 50 + Choose Your Own Adventure books.

gravatar srah - April 7, 2008 - 10:33 AM -

I'm still not sure I've read all of the endings!
