I once played Episode, (and yes, I know this is the choices fandom, give me a minute) but mainly got hooked on it because of the make your own story feature rather than the riveting plot lines of the main books. Though one thing that really annoyed me was the messy mechanics of it all. With Choices, I'd feel it'd be so much easier only having to control the speech, choices and scenes rather than focusing on movement.
Another thing that I didn't like was the limited choice of story genres. I mean, I would personally love to create a fantasy or futuristic visual story, but with limited experience with coding, the only app that made that happen was Episode.
With Choices, they have so many different genres and I would no longer have to focus on…Read more >

Hi everyone. This is just a quick announcement to say that in about 2 and a half weeks, the wiki will be hosting the first Unofficial Choices Awards. Now, normally the nominees would be books that have been released in the last year but seen as this is the first one (of many, hopefully), why not just let all books/series that have been created up to this point be nominees. So that means that all books/series from The Freshman to Ride or Die will be eligible nominees.
However, no category will have every book included. There will a maximum of 7 nominees per category and then you (yes, you), the Choices community will have 2 weeks to vote for your favourite via closed polls and comments. The winners will be announced shortly after that.

The following contains spoilers for Veil of Secrets, The Junior, Book 1, and Perfect Match, Book 1. And some “mild” ones for Pretty Little Liars. Like, nothing specific. If you saw the first three seasons, you should be good?
New year, new stories!
...or maybe just story singular. Ride or Die: A Bad Boy Romance is the only new one.
Speaking of Ride or Die: A Bad Boy Romance… oh boy! It is awful! It’s exactly like a Wattpad/Episode story. Even the mere ANNOUNCEMENT of this book on social media had it people deeming it “the worst book ever.” People have also been saying it was worse than Home for the Holidays: something that was universally hated! A book like Ride or Die and Home for the Holidays really hurts Pixelberry’s credibility. I am actual…Read more >

So as you may or may not know, it was confirmed today that the upcoming Medical Drama + Mystery book is called "Open Heart". Just a quick disclaimer, I have been asked to pass along that we do not rename the page for "Untitled Medical Book" to "Open Heart" just yet.
Like I did for Ride or Die, I'm here to ask for theories on the story so we can make an official page.
Here are some I've seen so far:
1. I've seen people say that we can play as Male. But I haven't seen any screenshots of PB confirming that.
2. There will be a crime aspect involved due to the mystery. Two popular theories I've seen are a Serial Killer murdering patients, or prescription drugs being stolen.
3. Michelle from Endless Summer will make an appearance due to th…

This is something I've been debating with myself for a while. Should Marc Antony be in the antagonists category? Throughout this whole story, he's been depicted as Caesar's henchman, and Caesar is the Big Bad of "Courtesan of Rome". He actively plays mind games, and in this chapter, he exposed our identity to Aquila, who is one of our enemies. The teaser at the end says that Antony and Caesar can now rule Rome unapposed. We have a dictator and a conquerer, and his henchman in charge now.
I get that Antony is a love interest, but we've had other love interests who have ended up as antagonists of villains.Read more >
For most adoptable animals in each series, there is a page/stub for each animal. Most pages don't have much information, especially if the animal doesn't show up often. What if Pixelberry uses the same animal model throughout different series? Such as The Royal Romance's Marabelle's Dream and Big Sky Country's Seabiscuit. Should Seabiscuit get her own page? Or should she be added to Big Sky Country Miscellaneous Characters? Storygirl83 proposed a new page named "Adoptable Animals in ..." that would condense the individual pages into one reference page to make it easier to find. For animals that have a significant amount of information (such as Hilda or Dipper), they would still get their own pages, but could be linked in the "Adoptable An…Read more >
1. Bloodbound will have scenes in Europe with old and new threats.
2. The Medical Drama Book is closer than we think. It's described as "Super Medical!" and "Super Mysterious!". That being said, I think it's safe to add it to the mystery genre.
3. They don't know if there will be a second book of Elementalists yet.
4. It hasn't been decided yet if they're going to revisit the It Lives series. They're probably waiting a couple of weeks to see how profitable it was and if it's worth continuing.
5. Bloodbound spinoff will be set in New Orleans with Werewolves, Fae, and more of the Supernatural.Read more >
A few months ago I posted asking y'all about your thoughts on a new format for the series directory page. The response was nearly all very good but I have been working with @FearlessDiva and taking her comments and a few others into account to edit what I previously had to make it the best it can be. I really believe this new format will really help improve the wiki and make it easier on the eyes, to read, as well as offer more information in a professional presentation. With the catalog constantly growing, I think this new format is the best idea.
There are a couple things I haven't done yet like link the series, but this is mainly the final product and I'd love to hear what all of y'all think about the new design we've been work…Read more >
Hey guys, I just wanted to apologize for my behavior in regards to Ride or Die a couple of weeks ago.
I was going through a very negative phase in my life with the loss of my mother and was feeling very defensive towards Choices, because reading their stories were helping me a lot during that time.
I took some time off the wikia and cleared my head.
My apologies, specially to Gryffinpuffz.Read more >
I was looking into the Heroes category since I wanted to add the MC of VoS there. There are not too many characters in that category, and neither was there any description of what makes a character a hero. I asked Fearless Diva about it, and she thought we should discuss the description we put in the category, so here we are. :)
The ones in the category as of now are as follows: (I know they are listed in the category, but I thought I'd add them here as well for quick access.

I've been updating character pages, and for Shreya, Griffin, Zeph, Beckett, and Atlas, I've been adding relationships as the group Pend Pals since we see them interact a lot as a group and naturally we view them through the eyes of the MC (and once through the eyes of the Sentry).

What are your hopes for 2019? What do you hope will happen in some of the upcoming stories or what are some genres that you hope PB touches on? Here are some of mine:
The Nautical book:
- We can chose our gender
- It's based around Pirates
- Yvonne and Malatesta are either protagonists or love interests
The Werewolf Book:
- We can chose our gender
- There's a female werewolf love interest
The Medical Drama:
- We can chose our gender. I honestly don't watch MD's, so I have no idea what to expect.
The Fugitive story:
- We can choose our gender
- A lot of people end up betraying us, just to show that in a world of criminals, you can hardly trust anyone.
The theorized College themed series:
- We can chose our gender
- It doesn't take place at Hartfeld

With the cluttering of the gallery on the General Information page lately, I kind of want to create a page for each writer of Pixelberry. Or, maybe just one writers page with sections on each writer. Kind of like the miscellaneous character pages.
Writers such as Kara, Rachel, and Luke. Just to name a few.
And of course we will add the series they have worked on. Thanks to Fearless Diva for finding the list!

So, as many of us probably know, the title of the next book is Ride or Die: A Bad Boy Romance. However, when the book was added to the app recently, it had been programmed to show with dashes, more exactly Ride-or-die: A Bad Boy Romance. I was wondering if the community here thinks that the book's page should be renamed to reflect that, or if we should wait until the book is confirmed as a standalone or series to add it all in at the same time, as Fearless Diva suggested. Personally, for the sake of convenience, I think it would be best to rename it now, so that new users have an easier way of finding said page, as they might type it in with the dashes in the infobox. But yeah, I'm writing this blog post for us to decide together.Read more >
After the writers finished talking about what to expect for Book 2 of AME, they talked about what to expect later this year.
We already know about Ride or Die.
"Get ready to make life-or-death decisions, encounter the supernatural, travel the world, and much, much more!"
So judging from the "make life-or-death decisions" it seems like one of their upcoming series could be another crime or thriller series.
"Encounter the supernatural", seems like they're talking about their werewolf book given that those obviously fall under the Supernatural aspect, and it's mentoned that Fae might appear. Someone mentioned to me that those are fairies. Judging from reactions on facebook, a lot of people are excited to romance supernatural critters.

Class Act has come and gone, earning a... "mixed" reaction from the audience. Now that Class Act has revealed a sequel (and a Book 3) I think it is in my place to say what I want to see in the sequel.
Currently I am on the fence on Class Act. I didn't like it, but I didn't hate it either. Although I admit I was sighing when I read that there would be a sequel.
Some of these may not apply to everyone since my Rory is female, I chose Skye, and my MC is male.

Sigh. Alright, where do I even start?
I know people like different things. Really, I do. I don't like all the books, and that's totally fine. Hell, AME is very popular, and I don't like it at all. That's fine. I'm not going to like all the things other people like, and others are not going to like all the things I like. That's how it should be, because it'd be pretty weird otherwise.
However, this seems very much like a book with an upcoming fanbase that will be very unbalanced in comparison to the people who don't like this book. We've seen how people are reacting on social media. There are more angry comments than positive ones, and that only, says a lot. I have a feeling this book won't help Pixelberry at all.

As some of us, myself included, are confused to how we are supposed to write for characters that can be either male or female, and for supporting characters who can be either male or female, or are non-binary, this is an informal poll to vote on what pronouns you think should be used.
Main characters - such as the captain in Across the Void, Your Character and the Matches in the Perfect Match series, and the leader of your crew in The Heist: Monaco - that can be either male or female.
Supporting characters - such as Cameron from the High School Story series - who is non-binary, meaning Cameron doesn't identify as male or female specifically.
Should we use "he/she" or "they", and subsequently "his/her" or "their"?
Before the 1960s/1970s, we would use…Read more >
In this post, I'm covering the antagonists of the series, not subordinates (e.g. Cecile Contreras) and side villains no matter how loathsome they are (e.g. Priya Lacroix). However, I'm not including everyone, such as those who are too early or appear in multiple books in the same series as significant characters but are villains in one or two books (one of the villains I will mention is an exception). Note that this is all personal opinion, so I am not imposing my thoughts on others.
Everett Rourke: I seriously despise Rourke, both as a character and as a villain. Saying that I hate him for his heinous actions isn't enough. While I acknowledge that he's a force to be reckoned with, most of what he says and does boils down to him being an eg…Read more >
Perfect Match: Book two could have been better, but I still enjoyed it overall
Bloodbound: Actually pretty good considering I usually consider vampires dull and cliche.
Veil of Secrets: Possibly one of the darkest and down-to-earth mysteries they've had so far. There were no supernatural or sci-fi elements. It was a gritty murder mystery that revolved around a decades old secret and a psychopath obsessed with revenge. According to a PB Livestream, they may release more murder mysteries this year, which I'm all for. Hopefully one of them will end up being a series.
America's Most Eligible: Surprisingly good considering I usually hate reality tv
It Lives Beneath: Even better than the first book

Here we are: Ten Reasons Why Class Act is better than High School Story. (And Ten Why It's Not)
20. Better: A Fresh Start. Pixelberry could basically do what they wanted to do now they they have no more connection to the High School Story Prime App.

- ===There *may be* another college based series that isn't the Freshman. ===
I actually wouldn't mind if there was another College based slice-of-life series. But there are some things that have to change. For starters, a male MC. Second, have the focus be on class, not parties. Third...have good love interests. The main 5 love interests in the Freshman are a generic golden boy (Chris), one of the most boring people in existance (James), a selfish twit (Kaitlyn), a generic bad boy with "woe is me" syndrome (Zig), and a pretty terrible person who the writers think I should forgive for whatever reason (Becca).

What does everyone think? Does she deserve her own page?
I think she does deserve her own page. She was an important character in the final chapters of Perfect Match, Book 2. Her character didn't get the spotlight that often, but she did have more than a few lines and was important to the storyline. I also think she deserves a page because there several other characters like Lucillia Nazario, Keegan and Winona Johnson who were less major characters than Vera Thompson and still have a page. I just doesn't feel right for the President of the United States, who appeared in multiple chapters and was pretty much a plot point to be featured just as a section in the miscellaneous section.

MICHELLE AND ESTELA
Michelle heard her phone rang as soon as she sat down on for lunch, and she hasn't even ordered anything yet. That better not be work. She sighed as she pulled it out off her pocket to check the Caller ID. "Oh, it's Sean." Her mouth curves into a gentle smile, she presses the answer icon and holds the phone near her ear. "Hi dear, is Jake still driving you crazy with the whole new-boyfriend-that-looks-like-his-old-boyfriend thing?" She lifts up the restaurant's complimentary drinks to her lips.
Michelle is glad she hasn't taken any real sip yet, because she did not need to make a scene by doing what Raj would call an epic spit-take. She placed her glass back down. "I'm sorry, what?"

The Asian didn't like it either; it's all he's been hearing whenever he would go visit Sean, even when he came to talk about either a football game or his game or both.
"I just don't think it's fair, you know. That─"
"─Jake's dating a guy just because he reminds him of Taylor." Craig mutters monotonously, as if he's been hearing the same thing for weeks... which is most probably the case.
Sean continues, not even listening to his best bud. "─because he reminds him of Taylor and he might not even like the guy for the guy himself, and I don't think─"

We're towards the end of the month, and it was on the first week. It's not a big deal, Boy Scout." he reached for the brunette's waist, pulling him back. "meeting you is a gift enough."

But the others stuck by him, from legal assistance offered by Sean and Michelle to simple moral support of Raj and Diego, and then some from the others, he was finally able to clear his name and move back to a normal life with his mother and sister, Rebeccah.
Of course, he was grateful. He managed a few years with them until his mom passed on, and his sister married some guy Jake still wasn't sure deserved her. But having a nephew like Michael mad…

Peter and Grace Liao, characters in The Freshman series, are Kaitlyn's parents. They are first seen in Book 2, Chapter 10.
Peter and Grace have black hair, brown eyes and tan skin. Usually, Peter wears a white shirt and a black jacket, and Grace wears pearl earrings and a white dress with purple flowers on it.
From dialogue with Kaitlyn, we are given the impression that both Peter and Grace are very strict and traditional parents. After Kaitlyn's coming out they both need some time to adjust - Peter more than Grace - but accept and love her the way she is.
Kaitlyn is Peter's and Grace's daughter. Kaitlyn is still afraid to come out to her parents and the way her father constantly talks about Arjun doesn't help her feel more comfortable. When she …

Why I love him
- He's hot and must be protected from his angst.
- He needs more reasons to be happy so as to not go to a dark end.
- His dry humor and sass is so sexy.

- The fact that he calls me Boy Scout but he's even more versatile than me (especially if I don't have diamonds for particular choices. I mean, he can fly a plane AND a helicopter, fly a glider he just started using, make a bonfire, swim while dragging an unwilling passenger with him [Hi, Aleister] and et cetera)

Of course this isn't how it would look as a finished product, but you can get an example and an idea of how things would look.
