Create a 'Choose Your Own Adventure' styled demise in a single blog post. The You Chose Wrong tumblr blog - http://youchosewrong.tumblr.com/ - gives a number of great examples of single pages that describe 'your' death after having picked the wrong path for the next page in your adventure.

From Wikipedia – "Choose Your Own Adventure is a series of children's gamebooks where each story is written from a second-person point of view, with the reader assuming the role of the protagonist and making choices that determine the main character's actions and the plot's outcome."

Hot Lead Lunch

This two star  assignment was to write a terrible death ending for a choose your own adventure style book. It was a great assignment to incorporate the western theme; no shortage of deaths in gun battles in westerns. It was fun to take a typical western finale scene and create …

Choose Your Own Death

I was happy about this assignment. Not the whole dying part but, you know, the nostalgia. I also decided that this would be a perfect opportunity to incorporate my noir character and someone else’s. After looking through some character dossiers I decided on having the person who “died” to be …

Will-o’-the-Wisp

This ending is inspired by a book I read as a child, titled The Moorchild. It takes place on the moors in Scotland where almost anything can happen. Unfortunately, this adventurer chose wrong.

You Chose Wrong

I will admit, I have never read a “Choose Your Own Adventure Novel,” as this ds106 assignment describes. However, I love the idea of writing the end of a story, the gruesome ending, not the happy one. So here we go!

That was a Bad Choice

My take on the Your Adventure Is Over two star assignment, with an example of the wrong choice for a choose your own adventure book.
