Choices at first kept me away from Wynter Castle, and then brought me to it, at long last. Every choice, I realized lately, comes with a good and bad side, not so much an outcome, but a variety of attendant bonuses and drawbacks that affect your next choice, and so on.
For instance... when I first arrived at Wynter Castle, I made the choice to invite my best friends, Shilo and Pish, to stay with me. The result has been, Shilo and Jack McGill, the local real estate agent, have married, and my darling Pish has gotten me into a world of trouble by inviting his lovely aunt and her miserable friends to stay with us at the castle.
How many do I have? I could ask them all to leave, but the money they pay to stay here is helpful if I want to fix up the castle enough to sell it. And if I kick out Pish's darling Aunt Lush's friends, her feelings will be hurt and she may go with them, which will hurt Pish's feelings and he may be next. I don't want him to leave; he's one of the few people who keep me sane in the odd little burg of Autumn Vale, New York.
Well, my next choice is to hold a tea party to try to keep the ladies busy. However... if Lush's friends misbehave they will indeed have to go. Really, though... how awful could a tea party with the elderly lady friends and a few select townsfolk be?
Choices... I'm doing my best to make wise ones, but choices don't come with guarantees.
What choices have you made that turned out to have different consequences than you anticipated?
