So we all give in to temptation sometimes (especially online
), but fortunately for the human race, most of us aren't tempted by anything truly bad. But I'd like to try a story where someone really is
tempted, just an ordinary person. It's been done to death, I know, but I'm itching to try a story where the devil tries to snare an ordinary woman.
It's partly inspired by the movie Devil's Advocate
-- not that I'm a fan of Keanu Reeves, but the movie was interesting in spite of him. Heh. The plot's just a starting point, and I would welcome added twists and suggestions to spice things up. Basically, the devil is a high-powered attorney in New York (no surprise) who targets a young, up and coming lawyer, and slowly begins to dazzle and corrupt him with wealth, power, and an incestuous relationship with his gorgeous half-sister, all in the name of fulfilling an ancient prophecy.
It doesn't need to be the typical devil -- a Hindu demon, or something Lovecraftian would work, too; and all the whys and wherefores are open for discussion. This could also maybe work as a small group game, if the devil has human allies to hide behind, for instance. But first I'd like to know if there's anyone out there interested in corrupting me one on one...
