i'm just a literary tease, my reputation's on its knees.

U.K. Phone Booth

November 19, 2004

For my class Writing for the Internet, I am designing a travel-themed project entitled “Moira Does Europe.”  I have high hopes of turning this project into something that I continue to expand upon and create after
this semester is over.  For the graded portion of this project, I am designing a hypertext fiction story called:

This Ain’t No American Phone Booth.

The project is turning out to be way more complicated than I had initially suspected!  I’m having a lot of fun with the project but I find myself having to limit my options because eventually the story has to end!

The story starts with the player character Jack standing in front of a phone booth in Birmingham Square in England.  The player is presented with four options and must select one in order to continue forward with the story.

I’m finding that my story has three main plotlines:

 Dinner at Moira’s Mum’s House

 Meeting with the Queen of England

Johnny Q’s Record Shop

 The road is dangerous for our dear Jack, danger awaits at every turn, strange suprises greet Jack at the most inopportune times, and Jack is kind of a cranky bugger.  Will Jack ever find Moira?  Will Jack make the right decisions regarding what kind of British food he is willing to ingest into his system?  Is the Queen of England really a man in drag?  The answers to all of these questions and more await as you play:
This Ain’t No American Phone Booth.

Every day that I am here, the things I see just get stranger and stranger...

Heh, jk, Moira! I like what you've done a lot, it makes me laugh! Keep it up!

Awesome hypertext work. It takes so many unexpected turns and keeps you laughing to the end! (I still think who you want to call is Ghost Busters, but I'll forgive you for that!)

Valerie - I am glad that you like the strangeness! Just you wait, girlie, it's going to get weirder around here soon! ;) Thanks for the compliments! I totally dig your pigeon project.. I can't wait to see it when you are done. If you want someone to user-test it, I'm all about it! :c)

Evan - Thanks so much Evan! I agree with the Ghostbusters thing but Batman is pretty good too ;c)
