Blogwalk: Going Into a Cold Winter's Night

The air grows chilly as you climb down the mighty oak. The branches are increasingly laden with snow. Icicles hang in the darkness like glassy teeth. Then as you come to the last of the large branches and prepare yourself for the final descent, the Moon rises and everything takes on a luminous quality. You catch your breath. If ever there was magic in the world, in any world at all; this was it.

The rest of the climb down goes smoothly. There is only a light covering of snow across the roots of the old Oak tree. Everything is quiet. Even the wind has gone to sleep or is waiting for whatever comes next.

Do you...

This is a continuation of Porky's Fantasy Blogwalk, a collaborative cross-blog Choose Your Own Adventure narrative that begins at The Oak and expands outwards across the blog-o-sphere as explained by the prime instigator and friendly coordinator of this online collaborative narrative, Porky himself in his 'Blogging Our Adventures' post.

If you have an idea for a scene that might come before, during or after this one, write it, post it on your blog, and link to this post as one of the choices/options available from your scene's post. It's okay to present more options even if those scenes haven't been written just yet. There's plenty of room for everyone and alternative paths are much appreciated and encouraged. If you do write a scene that links to any of the ones at this blog, please leave a link in the comments here so that we can add your scene into the link options here. Everyone is welcome. Make sure you check out some of the other paths that are already available—you might get some ideas for thing to add that none of us have gotten to yet!

To begin your own Blogwalk as a reader-explorer, we suggest going back to the BEGINNING.

If you'd be interested in participating by contributing your own scenes as a Blogwalk writer-blogger then read the Summary and Guidelines at Porky's blog.
