#AtoZChallenge - Save Queen Eileen!

Today is one of those days where ALL THE THINGS happen at once! It's IWSG first-Wednesday, posting here, and I have a post up at the Main Challenge blog! Spoiler alert: contains mention of Wayne's World. Check it out :)

For IWSG all I'll say today is - SO much going on, SO many ideas, HOW does it all get done??

For those who are here for the first time, this is an interactive fiction adventure. I will write a scene every day, and my visitors will vote for where they want the story to go next, by leaving a comment on the post. You can start from the beginning here.

"General Gorilla, we need to rescue Queen Eileen. The Dinosaurs have had her for three days, and her little puppy heart can't take much longer, I'm sure." Sir Andrew adjusted his cape around his shoulders, assuming a more Princely stance.
"Yes, Sir Andrew." Gorilla bowed deeply with a glint in his eye. He responded in his gravel voice, "Just say the word and we'll attack. I've always wanted to get into that castle."
Sir Andrew looked at his most loyal advisor and said, "Dog, you always know what's best. What do you think we should do?"

How should Dog respond? "Thank you sir, I believe the correct action is to...
"..run up a Flag of truce and try to negotiate for Queen Eileen's release"?
or "...attack now and Fight to the end"?

Vote in the comments for your favorite option! Voting closes at 8:30 MTN/10:30 EDT! 9pm was turning out to be too close to bedtime, gotta back it up half an hour. Thanks, everyone :)

  1. April can be insanely busy during the challenge. Good luck! And I think it's early in the alphabet, so maybe go for the truce and live to fight another day? You're brave to write your posts day-to-day like this!

  2. Dog's response: (oosh this is difficult).. attack now and fight to the end?

  3. Clever QuEEn Canine...let's BARK before we BITE...Truce!

  4. Ooh, attack please! the truce would end the Fun!

  5. How fun!

    I'm thinking:
    "Thank you sir, I believe the correct action is to...
    "..run up a Flag of truce and try to negotiate for Queen Eileen's release"?

  6. Hmm...Attack is the best form of defence Sir, let go all guns and fire or maybe ninja style?

  7. The logical me says flag of truce, but the rest of me is definitely going for "attack now and fight to the end." because it sounds more entertaining :)

  8. I'm going with total cheese and not original cheese. I'm a co-host on #IWSG this month, AJ. So, here goes.

    Suddenly, they were all run over by a truck! The End. Or, a Dragoon of Wallaces in kilts and bagpipes overruns the Evil-Doers and drives them crazy with their badly out-of-tune bagpipes. Those that cannot play a lick use the bagpipes as weapons, bashing the Guerilla gorillas about the head and shoulders. The melee ends in the defeat of the Guerilla gorillas and sees the Wallaces headed for the Parliament in the U.K. to take back "what is rightfully ours, gahddamn English!" The End. Thanks, A J!

  9. Very fun!

    I vote for "run up a Flag of truce"...for the moment!

  10. Attack, of course! Time for some action! :)

  11. I'm liking the second option!

  14. J here, stopping by from the #atozchallenge - where I am part of Arlee Bird's A to Z Ambassador Team.
    April is here and I'm excited about it. Best of luck to us both on meeting our goals of posting and hopping to other blogs.
    My blog has a giveaway. There's a bonus a to z challenge each day to encourage people to visit more stops.

    Attack now and fight to the end.

    I love how you're doing this. Reminds me of those Choose Your Adventure stories.
