Hello and welcome to another semi-annual review blog by General Khor. As you probably know, there will be one review blog every 20th June, which is my birthday/Choiceversary (30th June at the latest if I can't make it) and one every 31st December (2nd January at the latest if I can't make it). So, today marks 3 years since I joined the Choices community, and a lot of changes have since happened. I have several titles to cover in this blog, not including Foreign Affairs, Most Wanted and Hero, which I've already covered in earlier blogs. These 3 books are recommended for beginners to allow them to see what Choices stories are like. Now, without further ado, let's begin.
- 1 State of Choices, 2021 First Half
- 2 Reviews for 2021 First
- 2.1 Rising T…
It’s finally time to give my OFFICIAL ranking on all Choices books I’ve ever read! Now that I’m ready to just close this chapter of my life (Choices and Pixelberry in general), I want to give a ranking to let others know where I stand.
This is going to be different from my other rankings, as I will not go from “worst to best” and talk about each entry briefly. Instead, I will list the books in chronological order (order in which they came out) and talk about them briefly in that way. Then in the end, I will give the official ranking in order from best to worst with no commentary.
Each book mentioned is a standalone book unless mentioned otherwise. And entries with “Book 1” in the title is meant to clarify I only read that first book and not …
I will be combining and expanding the fictional timeline of the Choices Universe noted in Thebedazzleddementor's blog and Chaotic38's blog. Seasons are listed for Northern Hemisphere as most stories take place in that hemisphere. Most books are assumed to take place in the year of their releases unless otherwise specified in-game.
52 - 44 BCE
A Courtesan of Rome
44 BCE is the year of Julius Caesar's assassination

You know what I love? People. Both real life and fictional. Fictional love interests are meant to be perfect. Characters that we can be obsessed with. For the past five years, some love interests have been on my mind 24/7. People who we all aspired to be like. So that we could be better ourselves.
Today I want to do another thing I love: writing! So kind of like a double whammy. Haha.
I want to rank my top 10 favorite love interests in Choices. Regardless of their gender or book. But the only restriction I have is a maximum of two love interests per book. Otherwise this list will be full of High School Story and Desire & Decorum love interests.
As I reminder, I am a cisgender male and am 100% heterosexual. But there are some men I put on the …
This is just a compilation of the love interests for your character / main character of all series. I did not include dual-lead series, The Crown and the Flame or Most Wanted, or The Haunting of Braidwood Manor (for the reason that I do not think of the two "love interests" as true love interests), and I did not include multiple-POV series' characters' love interests (other than Main Character). Also, I did not include "not-meant-to-be" love interests.

Hello and welcome to part 2 of my discussion blog about... well, cancelled series. As the title suggests I'll just be discussing Most Wanted and Hero in this blog, and as for Ride or Die, that one will be included in my mid year review blog.
- 1 Overview
- 2 Most Wanted
- 3 Hero
- 4 Conclusion
So as we know, MW and Hero ended on big cliffhangers, and MW especially wasn't financially successful. According to the statistics, MW got just over 5 million views, far less than TC&TF's 15 million and The Freshman's 43 million views. Needless to say, I was perplexed when I first saw that. As for Hero, that one also didn't perform as well as the high grossing romance titles at that time, such as The Royal Romance, High School Story and even The Sophomore. While man…
I probably haven't told you how much I hate Coronavirus...
For the first, I cannot meet my lover (they wouldn't let me into the hospital where he works, and I wouldn't want them to gossip anyway).
For the second, most surgeries were deleted or delayed for unknown time. It concerns also my spinal cord, which was damaged in November 2019. The surgery isn't complicated, but it's not a life-threatening situation. Losing the control over your constrictors and the whole humiliation is "not enough to operate".
For the third, if you don't want to acquire COVID-19, you should vaccinate yourself. What I did.
Several months ago, my parents got vaccinated. My mother went through the hell, suffering from quasi-influenza symptoms. My father had no such side…
For all the stories you love, but are not living up to the potential you're looking for.
Crystalasia's Power Couple
After getting married and defeating Anton's assassination attempts, life becomes a wild ride when married life becomes family life for Crystalasia's Power Couple.
Ethan Ramsey comes to realize what's important in his life when "Rookie" becomes temporarily unavailable due to an unexpected crisis.
This is an alternate ending created by @FrancoMasuoka and @ForeverHappyDays20. These scenes take male Blaine as love interest. For those who read the official ending, this one starts just the moment Blaine comes to MC's rescue in the garden.
I will be referring to the Distant Shores Main Character by his/her “default” name: “Peyton Bellamy”. The following contains spoilers for only Distant Shores.
Yep. I’m doing it. Even after making a big fuss about never returning, I always manage to find an excuse to write yet another blog post. “So what is it, JM? What’s today’s excuse?”
I’m so glad you asked, hypothetical reader.
I figured since this is the last “new” book I’ll ever read, might as well pay my dues by making a review.
The only reason I even finished this book was because of the blog post Pixelberry made. The one where they cancelled five franchises. Along with reiterating that Nightbound & Distant Shores weren’t returning.
Hello and welcome to another review blog by General Khor, and today, we're going to talk about another great series that came to an abrupt end. That series, is of course, well... I'm not even sure if I want to call it by its official title, in fact I have a nickname for this series that better describes it.
So, Foreign Affairs, hyped as one of the best books of 2020 (even though it came out at the literal end of the year), is supposed to be a great political drama, and at first glance, it sounds really exciting, and fans have really great hopes for a second book to be made. However, before the release of the finale, PB confirmed that the series would end with just that one book. When the news came out, needless to say, many fans were furiou…
Other players/editors have compiled data of the release dates and end dates of all Choices stories. This blog is a table timeline of the dates, not to be confused with the fictional chronological order of how the stories fit with each other.
There are some discrepancies on the dates which are noted at the end. I have been a player since Choices debuted but I did not work on the wiki nor paid attention to the dates since its inception, so I'm unsure if the dates are wrong or if there were hiatuses or holiday week(s) taken that are not noted on the books' pages or did books start on one day of the week and then shift to another day of the week for their releases?
Thanks to CoolQuantumcyJoker for providing links for old Tweets for the earlier d…
Is The Royal Romance best series by Pixelberry...Yes and here's why. The writing is the best I've seen so far by them not that the other stories are bad at all. Just that you can see they put i lot of love into Royal Romance with how deep the characters are with backstories that could have their own books like Olivia nevrakis. Maybe even Liam’s mother. I have loved playing thought the stories and watching the love grow with the characters and it seems like they all have ark. Maxwell, Hanna, Drake. I just think this is the best book by Pixelberry so far.
The following contains spoilers for the endings of Hero, Vol. 1, Most Wanted, Book 1, It Lives In The Woods, and It Lives Beneath. But since they have been cancelled, does it really matter?
Okay… I was not expecting to make this blog post. Not because of the topic, but because my previous blog post seemed pretty final. (https://choices-stories-you-play.fandom.com/wiki/User_blog:Jacked_Maverick/How_Right_Were_My_2020_Predictions) Like a goodbye to making essays and being active on the wiki. But with this new dropping… it’s too big to not comment on. I wanted to keep my personal feelings out of this rant, but with how devastating this news is, I’ve struggled. I’m not bitter or anything. Remember that.
I didn’t plan this blog post, nor do I thi…
Hello everyone, this is General Khor. So, this blog post is going to be a special one, because the Choices community has just received some really devastating news: some of our most beloved series are officially scrapped. Now, I know what you're thinking, you probably can't bear to read what I'm about to talk about in this blog, but today's topic concerns the future of Choices, so please bear with me, ok?

So, on 22/23 January 2021, PB released a blogpost with news about several past series, and among the revelations include the confirmation of Nightbound and Distant Shores as standalones, as well as The Elementalists and It Lives ending at 2 books. No…
Hello, Berrypickers! It’s been a long time since I’ve made a blog post. In case you didn’t know, I gave up on Choices after Blades of Light & Shadow. But I figured I should make a blog post to honor my 2020 predictions.
And… yeah. 2020 proved me wrong. I thought 2019 was going to be the worst year. But now… I don’t know if it’s the pandemic or just their natural evolution. I’m leaning more towards the latter.

Other players/editors have compiled data of how the stories are related and share a common universe. This blog isn't a timeline of the stories and won't add every bit of data from the stories (that would be difficult to do using tables and codes), but gives at least one common person or subject that ties it together.

The Royal Heir
Ana De Luca
My Two First Loves
Red Carpet Diaries
The Crown and the Flame
High School Story

Big Sky Country

Rules of Engagement
After seeing my predictions for last year, I realize that I got almost all of them wrong. I guess I’m too optimistic. Oh well. For this year’s predictions, I don't have high expectations due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
- My Two First Loves will be a standalone that ends with the MC and her LIs graduating. After all, a pre-release blog post said that it will span their entire senior year. I think it will have about 120 chapters.
- Foreign Affairs will have a predominantly positive reception by the end of the book, though whether it will have a second book is unknown. If it does, it will be released next year.
- Baby Bump will end at Book 2. After all, the previous book’s bonus scene shows the MC in labor, and the cover for this book sho…
Hey guys, I'm Velvet. This is my first post here. So I've been playing HSS for quite a while (way more if you include the OG Game). I know as far for backstory, the MC's parents are divorced, but I'm kinda curious about different possible backstories. Have you guys made other backstories for your MC
Mine is done below. (My MC's name is Crystal Rexha)
Crystal was born in London, England, to Scott and Mila Rexha. A few days after she was born, her mother died from brain cancer. Since then, Scott was left alone to raise his daughter.
Crystal later went on to attend dance school alongside with her regular elementary school. However, she quitted dance school when she was 12 to be more involved in her secondary college's school band. She first chos…
Hello and welcome to another semi-annual review blog by General Khor. With 2020 coming to an end, it's time to leave our disappointments of the year behind and hope for an exciting 2021. As usual, I'll be discussing the state of Choices as of now, and of course, giving book reviews, so without further ado, let's begin.
- 1 Choices as of Now
- 1.1 Sidenote
- 2 Reviews for 2020 2nd
- 2.1 Distant Shores
- 2.2 Hot Couture
- 3 Conclusion
So as of now, the poorly rated Baby Bump series is on its 2nd season, and I've seen some reviews saying there's some improvement, with more exciting events happening and all, but I'll wait until the series is over to give my official review. Also, Distant Shores turned out to be a solo book, and I think I know the reason it's not…
This is totally a THEORY page because there are a lot of holes and I don't remember if the writers stated anything extra on blogs or tweets. Granted, I don't remember a lot about The Crown and The Flame series, but this is me trying to piece everything together from The Crown and The Flame series to The Royal Masquerade to Rules of Engagement / The Royal Romance and The Royal Heir series.
- 1 What We Know
- 1.1 The Crown and The Flame
- 1.2 The Royal Masquerade
- 1.3 The Royal Series
- 2 Theory
- 2.1 Ramsford
- 2.2 Vescovi
- 2.3 Fierro
- 2.4 Aster/Everhart/Rosario
- 3 Cordonia Duchies
The Five Kingdoms are Abanthus, Bellmere, Ebrimel, Fydoria, and Stormholt.
The Great Noble Houses are Nevrakis, Beaumont, Fierro, Vescovi, and newest Aster/Everhart/Rosario.
Stormholt region still exists, as do the f…
What's the best diamond choice you've ever made? Additionally, what's the worst diamond choice you've ever made?
What is the hardest choice you've ever had to make in any book? For me, it was during The Freshman: Book 2, where the MC had to decide whether or not to tell James about Professor Vasquez's condition.
Hello and welcome to another discussion blog by General Khor, and today, we'll be talking about those much hated characters known as Big Bads. For those who are new to this wiki and don't know what I'm talking about, you might be thinking, am I talking about the Big Bad Wolf? Well, here's the definition for today's topic:
"Big Bads are the main antagonists in a book or an entire series. In most cases, they could be considered the nemesis of the protagonist."
So yeah, they're those characters whose deaths or imprisonment for life mark the series' happy ending. They're like the enemy commander in a war game, whom you have to kill in order to win a battle.
There are many instances where we think someone is the big bad, but little do we realise t…
Hello everyone, this is General Khor, or as some of you may know me as, one of the wiki's resident book critics and conspiracy theorists. Welcome to my first discussion blog, and today, I'll be talking about the most popular love interests by series.
So I started some polls to find out which love interests are the most popular in each series after I found out that some LIs are more favoured by Youtube players than others, and those LIs tend to be the first LI we meet or those featured on book covers, so the question that immediately hit my mind was: why? Why do people prefer these LIs over others?
Since it's been a month since I started those polls, it's time to reveal the results, and just as I thought, for most series, whichever LI we firs…

Guys this is not a walk through its just for telling that it is possible that choices may launch Most wanted Book 2 in February 2021or sometime near it .
Well, I'm not really sure what to write about because I have a thousand thoughts on Choices stories & PB and no time to articulate them, heh :D
I've been replaying Books recently and I kind of want to sit down and write my thoughts about them... but I've also started University this year and my school work keeps me occupied.
Okay, I think this is it for now. I might make more blog posts, I might not. We shall see!
Why witness ultimately fails as a novel if not entertainment
The title of this section may seem confusing but I can’t really think what else to call it look I’m running under a tight schedule here I have school I’m doing this when I kinda have an opportunity which is usually at like midnight at the weekend anywho.
But back to business what I mean by the title of this section is going to provide a slightly more in depth analysis at certain parts of the book that fail as a work or alternatively make the reading experience worse but eventually come down on one side or another if it actually is terrible.
The MC and the bad writing that surrounds her
This MC is the actual worst MC to be in a choices book. The Freshman MC may be a nosy irritating…

Every time I reset the book I get giddy with excitement 😄 The artwork of Sam is majestic!
This chapter doesn't make a lot of sense to me. I get Sam's rules but when the fight happens and Sam tells the MC(Anna) that she can call her at any time Emma should've told her that her phone died.
This chapter is amazing, well, except for the last scene of course. But a whole chap…
This blog will have the edits I made of the books and characters of the universe of Choices.
Preamble As you will know if you read my previous post this is the part two of my witness review covering chapters 15-28 again this is for entertainment and critical purposes only with that being said enjoy witness review part 2 Please comment if you enjoyed it lol only if you want to.
And we begin the new volume do I regret doing this I get a certain masochistic pleasure from reading this god-awful book, so no. Karen arrives in Ireland 2 years after the trial with the Cassian they are celebrating their two year anniversary we get pointless fluff and a diamond choice for an outfit and we’re in Galway and Ireland has good weather yet more proof of a lack of research we get a weird scene involving scones which for some reason turns…
Hi guys.... I am sorry that I am starting with a really boring book but no joke I think that WT ( wishful thinking)is a total trash can and playing it feels like sitting in a trash can and enjoying watching a movie with garbage all around us......so honestly there is nothing else remaining to say about it but sometimes it rains and sometimes it is sunshine , well in Mumbai, India it is raining so it was a clear indication that nothing is gonna be interesting today in choices,well right now I am on chapter 12 of wishful thinking where Ellen who was the senior reporter of northbridge news and now is fired from her position (because of me) and her position is given to me.....so basically she is pissed at me but at night hours she shows up at…
Preamble-The folowing text and indeed the fullness of this review is the result of almost 3 months of work at the time of writing these words now before I begin part 1 the reason for this review being in parts has previously been explained but I feel like I must credit someone who does not apear in this part or indeed untill the final part it is ShizzyBoom268 whose diamond breakdown I will be using to analyse one of the ultimate reasons why this book failed the exorbitant amount of diamonds required in manny chapters thank you so much for letting me use your breakdown Shizzy you're awesome.
Now some disclaimers
1. I do not hate the writers of this book
2. I do not mean for this review to be an attack on people who like witness I hope that th…

Hello everyone, this is General Khor. Ok, so this blog is going to be different from the previous blogs, because this is an update blog, there won't be any reviews. I just want to share some news with you in this blog.
So, if you've seen my user page, you'll know that I mainly play Choices for the special features in those stories I've read, including collectibles and score systems. You'll also find a list of goals and milestones, and so you'll know that I've completed the last of my Choices goals for now. If you ask me, do I read for the romance? The answer is, I do, it's just not my top priority. To think I completed that last goal exactly two years since I joined this wiki, well, I've come a long way indeed.
So what does this mean for me…
Who was your choice among the following in Desire and Decorum? 1. Mr. Sinclair 2. Prince Hamid 3. Sir. Luke Harper 4. Miss. Parson
Barrington House is the estate of the Duke and Duchess of Wessex and one of the primary settings of A Very Scandalous Proposal.

The Montjoys were elevated from barons/baronesses to dukes/duchesses in 1850, as a result of a private favor to Prince Albert. In the Montjoy family, the estate is traditionally passed on to the next heir on his or her thirtieth birthday, which is celebrated with a formal debut. It is this debut that serves as the important deadline for much of the plot, as Simon/Ava tries to convince his/her grandmother and grandfather that they should leave the estate to him/her rather than…

The following contains spoilers for Blades of Light and Shadow, Book 1 and Endless Summer, Book 2.
This will completely blow your mind given the title of this essay, but I did not like Blades of Light & Shadow. I hated it, but I do not think it’s the death of Choices. Mostly because that’s a pretty low bar to set and books that aired before this already bear that title. Haha.
This is also not the essay I thought I would be writing five months ago (Like, the last week of Feburary 2020), when Blades of Light & Shadow was still going strong. If you know me, this is the book that finally made me delete the app. I wanted this essay to be different than the usual rant nature.
I wish this review was basically “After half a year of producing nothing …
