Hypertext Narrative.

Ahuntsic College

It all started like this.

You just received your diploma from Ahuntsic College. You've been studying Youth and Adult Correctional Intervention and with all the internships you have done, you are ready to find your dream job. There are three paths you could choose. You could become a correctional officer and work in a federal prison with adult offenders. You could also decide to work with younger clients and become an educator in a youth center. Finally, you could work in the community network with destitute people.

Choice 1 : Become a correctional officer.

Choice 2 : Become an educator.

Choice 3 : Work in the community network.

Federal Prison

Become a correctional officer.

You now have become a correctional officer in a federal prison. As a new employee, a group of inmates is trying to intimidate you, to show you you are not the boss. You could decide to let them be so you won't get any trouble or do an intervention to indicate that you will not let them intimidate you and misconduct themselves.

Choice 1 : Be intimidated.

Choice 2 : Do an intervention.

Be intimidated.

Since you ignored the intimidation, the inmates know that you are malleable and scared to interpose yourself. One day, they succeed to isolate you and they try to convince you to take in drugs for them in exchange for an important income. They would also stop intimidating you.

Choice 1 : Accept the offer.

Choice 2 : Decline the offer.

Inmate in his celll

Accept the offer.

You accepted the offer and receive your first order. When you arrive at work, the drugs are detected. You immediately lose your job and you undergo criminal prosecutions. You end up in prison for your crime.

Inmate in his celll

Decline the offer.

Since you declined the offer, as an act of vengeance, the group of inmates manages to hide drugs in your personal effects at work. A coworker finds them and brings them to your superior saying it is yours. You automatically lose your job and have to undergo criminal prosecutions.

Choice 1 : Start again


Do an intervention.

Since you interposed yourself in front of the intimidation of the group, you are now its target. They look at you with fierce eyes and continue the intimidation despite your interventions. One day, you hear weird noises in the cell of one of the inmates of the group. Security is your number one priority so you must know what is going on in the cell but you could decide to ignore the noises to avoid reprisals from the group.

Choice 1 : Go take a look.

Choice 2 : Ignore the noises.

Physical handicap

Go take a look.

It was an ambush. You get seriously beaten and you keep important sequelaes from this event that make you no longer able to keep your job. Traumatised by this attack, you stay home, living with a compensation package from the government.

Choice 1 : Start again

Ignore the noises.

You ignore the noises and continue your round. A bit later, a colleague takes the same round as you but he enters the cell when he hears the noises. He catches inmates preparing drugs for further sells. On the security cameras, all of your colleagues see that you did nothing on purpose when you heard the noises. Everyone thinks that you are one of the perpetrators of the drugs sells and no one can trust you anymore.

It's your first week as an educator in Youth Protection. You notice that one of the teenagers looks very depressed.

Work in Youth Criminal Justice.

It is your first day as an educator with a Youth Criminal Justice group. One of the teenagers starts to look at you with flirting eyes and doesn't stop complimenting you. You also think he is really cute and mature for his age but flirting back would be against your code of ethics.

Weeks go by and the flirt between you two intensifies. You are more and more physically attracted to him and you feel like you are falling in love with him.

Continue the relation.

You decide to follow your heart and continue the relation. One day, the sexual tension between you two gets too high and you can't get over of lack of withholding. A colleague enters the room as you are passionately kissing each other. You lose your job.
