The Curious Incident at Blackrock Township by bitterkarella

The incident began in 1705 at Blackrock Township in the Province of Massachusetts Bay in the house of the Rev. Steadfast Hopkins.

After evenmeal, the reverend's daughter fell into a violent fit.

When Ezola Midnight is accused of causing the fits with witchcraft, her responses will determine her fate. Will she be hanged as a witch? Or will she go free?

Telling the story through quotes is so unique, but it definitely added to the environment. I felt like I was reading about a real event. At first, I thought the story was very linear, but I have played it about three times now and made subtle (or big, depending on certain options) changes. Overall, a fascinating, well-told story!

This honestly had me believing every word trying to figure out which one really happened, as I could visualize them both. I found it a little hard to read, but that is well understandable given the time period.

I say this was a very fine and fantastic read. It almost made me feel like I was reading some kind of lore from the old days. I really enjoyed it fully!

Telling much of the story through quotes is an original and interesting set up. The olde English was well done too!

This seems like it has been copied from Wikipedia.
