    Well, up too now I've had two pretty weird story ideas:

    -Two gods have made a bet, and it involves a real Average Joe. Every day, at breakfast this guy has the choice between cornflakes and a sandwich. Each and every time he takes the sandwich. One day though, he has a one-night stand, and he's late for work so he takes the easy way out and takes the cornflakes. The universe is destroyed. One of the gods is pissed that he lost the bet, so he plucks this Average Joe from the timestream and has him try and prevent the universe from destruction. He fails and is brought back to try again. Eventually this guy is so fed up with it and shoots the original Joe, and consciously chooses for the cornflakes, destroying the universe. I've fleshed it out a bit more than that, but that's the basic premise.

    -The revolving door that is Death. It's a real-life comic world in which ressurection is instant, you die, you immediately get up again, ressurected. When you die of old age or natural causes, you immediately get reborn as a baby again. It'd be a look at a world where nobody dies, assasinations fail all the time, and where a whole new set of rules would have to be set up, as well as the effect it could have on people to constantly die and come back, or see loved ones coming back shortly after they die.

    I had an idea for a murder mystery book, about a bunch of Egyptologists who are doing work on a tomb, and one of them finds something very valueble, but doesn't report the find to the team. Then he gets killed, and one of the people on the team is responsible, because he wants the treasure. I thought it would be a nice touch if the guy who gets killed was buried alive, because he would end up mummified.

    That's a pretty cool idea. I had this other idea about a detective who is trying to solve a murder case. Thing is, all the murders take place in the vicnity (sp?) of his apartment. Eventually it turns that he kills people as a sleepwalker. He's been having some of the best sleep ever, while killing people.

    Mine was about a group of superhero. The manager would find teenages between 17 - 24 much like a Australia (or where ever your from) idol. They would fight crime (that he has set up) and the team would become really popular.

    They wouldnt know the crimes were set up, they would just show up and when they stopped the crime, pose for the cameras and leave. The manager get money for marketing rights and things like that.

    After a while, a few in the team begin to suspect the fights are set up when they find something similar about one of the "bad guys".

    I had ideas for stories that i was going to write. It was going well, that was Wizard posted an Ultimate DC special. The idea for their Teen Titans was like my idea. So I got rid of my plot out line.

    I still have a few things written down.

    well thats it.

    I have decent idea for a short.

    Very "blair witchesk" Four teens are hanging out in the woods, one has a camcorder. One of the teens stumble across a raygun. Thinking that it must be a starwars fan creation. They begin to fight over it until it goes off. And vaporizes a tree.

    Is this a govement prototype? An alien's carless accident? What would you do with the worlds most powerful personal weapon?

    The teens are only slightly detured, when they begin to think of the possiblities. They take turns shooting it off. Soon they realize that they have power that they always wanted. Chicks will dig them, dudes will fear them and they wont have to go back to school.

    It's getting dark so, for now they have to return home. One of the teens desides to keep it over night. Returning home he hides it in his room and goes down for dinner.

    Suddenly on the TV, reports of UFO sightings are being seen over the US. Then with out prevocation, they begin to attack. The nation is in shock.

    Knowing that they are the only hope, the four boys meet up in there garage and launch a attack against the invaders.

    ...well, I had an idea about this guy going around shooting preist and stuff. All because he thinks gods sucks, and personally reasons... I decided that it was a bad idea. doesn't mean I won't do it, though.

    My idea has a 20 something jewish college student, Josh, finding out that he is Jesus Christ reincarnated, and the end of days is nigh. Within the first twenty minutes to half hour of the film, he sits down with God, The Devil, and the Anti-Christ, and they all agree that they all rather like the world as it is and don't want to cause the deaths of countless millions. The rest of the film has him revealing to the world that he's back, and dealing with the celebrity status of being Jesus in the modern world. The film ends with this song.

    I wrote a short story once about a guy sitting in his living room, eating breakfast, only to have a bunch of TV crew members suddenly barge in and dismantle his entire apartment. They take everything, even the walls. He's left sitting in a large empty TV studio, where he discovers that his life has been "cancelled" for being too boring.

    I liked the idea when I wrote it, but now I think it's too much like The Truman Show.

    Verd good, intriguing (and creative) idea.

    Mind if I use it? Instead of God, it'd be a lesser power; since God is omniscient, there would be no reason for him to bet, because he already knows everything before it even happens.

    I would take your idea, and mix it with his--

    and make my own. :)

    Maybe the gods are TV producers... hmmm

    Sure, go crazy with it. And it wouldn't be God, it would be two gods, similar to the gods of the norse/greek/roman/etc. pantheons.

    My story actually had a god/devil character in it called "The Director," so it wouldn't be too far of a stretch.
