“Choices are the hinges of destiny.” — Edwin Markham

September 24, 2018

In August of 2016, my son Ben and I started writing an interactive story called “The Legend of the Pockets”. For the longest time, we worked on it very sporadically, but in the last six months, it has become a Friday morning project that we work on at breakfast before our days begin. Although we may be consistently adding to it, the story is anything but consistent. And is nowhere near finished. It is quirky and strange and may even be somewhat amusing, but you will have to be the judge of that yourself. We have a lot of ideas about how to continue the story and we are open to hearing more suggestions. In the meantime, we are introducing it to the world here. We will be continuing to add to it on an ongoing basis.

Please feel free to leave any feedback and ideas as comments below. We hope you enjoy it.

Excerpts from LOTP:

“You put your hands in the pockets. They are oddly really deep, almost like you’re reaching into another reality.”

“Weirdly, his intense green eyes match his custom, designer Converse shoes.”

  1. My favourite part is the one about the construction vest, especially how it made the character (which I suppose is me) feel safe the whole time I was wearing it. I would wear a vest like that. In that section I really liked Cv4-Cv8 and that you get to fill in the questionnaire about your summer. I especially love how the rat ran so fast it created black holes, and I would really like to know why that happened.

    The other portion that I liked was RD2 but I think it would be really interesting if you could follow the story live of getting pulled through the pocket. It would be neat to see what kind of adventures that could lead to.

    I also like the continual references the 150 comparative twonie.
