This topic was proposed by MikeyFreedom on the 1.6 topic theme. I think that it cana be a good short-length topic.

- Ubergirl is disturbed changing into her secret identity, keeping her from a rescue. (That's one a wee bit cheeky, as I wrote one of them a while ago)

(formerly Anon, still Librarian)

"What is the point of having free will if one cannot occasionally spit in the eye of destiny?" ("Gentleman" John Marcone)

Rather narrow. And would any ubergirl worth her salt postpone a rescue to deal with a peeping tom?

My objection is to the whole "ubergirl coming to the rescue" thing. I'd be happy enough with the topic "Ubergirl deals with a peeping Tom."

Maybe just "Someone catches a supergirl changing". That allows for peeping Tom's, work collegues, boyfriends, husbands, siblings...

I'll recycle my last batch of suggestions:

1. Super-woman uses her powers (secretly or openly) at work

2. Super-woman withstands / overcomes force of nature (avalanche, volcano, thunderstorm, typhoon ...)

3. Super-woman changes from secret identity to super identity (or vice versa)

4. Super-woman accidentally causes destruction through careless / inexperienced use of her powers

5. "I Wish She Were Super" -- a 1,000-word story featuring a real-life elebrity as a super-woman

Suggestion #5 on that list might bring me out of my lurking/semi-contributing status...

Another suggestion that's pretty open to interpretation:
"A superwoman goes too far..."

I also like "Oh, ________! My wife/girlfriend/ex is super!"

Well, angels, the "Super Paris Hilton" chapter you contributed to the interactive story would be a perfect example of what I had in mind. And I enjoyed your "Super DeeAnn Donovan" chapter (although I think Superman is a little out of place in the "T4K Universe"). So I'd be interested to see what other celebrity you'd turn into a super-woman.

"Goes too far" ... That could be interpreted in lots of different ways!

And I'd prefer to save "_____ , my wife/girlfriend is now super!" for a full-length story workshop.

You're Fired! No wait, that is the Donald's line.

While I know it doesn't have a prayer, being that it is very close to my favorite holiday Halloween I still like Whitepaw's idea about a girl dressing up in costume and taking her boyfriend/lover/husband out to a halloween party or trick or treating.

I'm pretty sure "Golly gee / F***ing b*****ks, my wife/girlfriend is now super!" is going to feature as a "long" workshop topic in the future.

Also, as the deadline for this is probably going to be the end of December ("Long" Workshop 1.6 ends 30th Nov) I think we've missed the Halloween boat for this year. Plus Nov 5th, the big autumn occasion in the UK.

Otherwise, there's some great ideas floating about. I'm happy with most of them (the celebrity one COULD be a FICTIONAL celeb, right?) As long as it isn't "Ubergirl rescues cat stuck up a tree then helps old lady arrange some dried flowers."

Anyone have a strong preference? And we've yet to hear from our official topic setter?

Ok, I KNOW CF will hate this (which of course is partially why I am suggesting it) but how about someone rescues an Ubergirl and she
REWARDS them. Or maybe they rescue her dog, mother ect and she rewards them.

This seems a bit narrow to me. How many ways are there for a supergirl to reward someone (maybe she could help him do his taxes :) ). It also begs the question "Why couldn't the ubergirl perform the rescue herself?

On a serious note, I don't think we should be trying to CF-proof the workshops. Not yet anyway!
