Just a forum to throw out odd inspirations that strike me from time to time, especially now that my writing time's been vastly curtailed. Hope to inspire a few of you along the way.

For example: "My Imaginary Fiend". Poor Mr. Nobody gets konked on the head durning a mugging and suddenly a new ubergirl appears to rescue him--and mysteriously vanishes. He wakes up days later w/ a concussion and tries to go about his life again...but she keeps making appearances in his life at the worst moments. She even beats up the chick that dumped him. Things start getting out of hand and the super heroes and heroines of the world start showing up to contain the situation--but none of them can best her, she's just too strong. Finally somebody figures out why: she doesn't really exist. It's not her with all the super powers, but it's poor Mr. Nobody who's latent galactic-level telekenesis and such got knocked on that day and who's subconsious fantasies have been running wild masquerading as his own private super herem girl (girls!?!) And no, his conscous will can't really do anything with his powers, she (they?) are almost completely out of control. Ah the embarrasement of a super ego.

More later as they konk me.

Write on.
-Paw.

I actually had a similar "plot twist" kind of idea, but mine involved actual women, not an illusion. I don't want to give away the details yet, though, because I really do intend to write this one eventually (probably for one of the workshops), and I don't want to ruin the surprise.

idea for you, whitepaw, and others too:

An Epic tale, with a Kryptonian royal level princess like the one in Exile and/or Galaxy, but much slower to reach that point, or has the potential but perhaps requires certain stimulus or actions on the part of the supergirl to reach such levels or unlock abilities. Yeah, she may not be hyper-super powerful in one go, but we as an audience can better appreciate just how far she has gone from then, to what she is capable of in the future. Maybe she may adapt new abilities in response to ususual events or may have a few abilities that are original.

Now, I know that epic tales of such length and volume are not really your forte or perhaps style/timelimit, WP, but pretty much tales over a longer stretch of time, or a broader perspective. You're very competent writer and artist, and it takes one to know one. The real measure of one who weilds a sword is his willingness to take up another, or some such.

Wow, all this from two days underneath a cold. Guess i needed the time off, eh?

Go kick ass!,
