Hello all. Simply put, I love power struggles. Rocky relationships. The kind of passion that spills over and turns into something intense. An all-consuming kind of love. There should definitely be some humor and fun mixed in there though. Underneath are just some basic characters and possible storylines I've always had in my pocket. I'm totally game for changes, suggestions, and even completely new ideas. The relationship part is very important to me, building it.
Also, none of the ideas below are specifically for a F/F storyline, but they could all certainly be tweaked to fit that though. Or I'd be happy to come up with something from scratch too.
So check out some of the ideas below. If one is taken and you would like to do a spin off of it, let me know.
Cravings of the Moment:
The setting is essentially a high-tech, modern day brothel
and auction house where men bid money (and ridiculous amounts of it) to spend their nights engaging in various acts of debauchery with one of the young ladies. What I'm seeing as happening is that maybe the "diamond" of the ladies is sick of that life. She wants to get out. And maybe a certain male bidder starts to become enamored with her. I see this being pretty volatile. Maybe she's trying to manipulate him to make herself free, hoping that he'll help her escape from the brothel. And perhaps once that happen, he struggles to suppress her in other ways. (Taken)
****I'd like to play out the relationship between a young lady at her soldier
partner. This can be in modern times, or back in the WW2 era. Each time the soldier returns from war, he/she is a little less patient, a little more gruff... maybe dealing with quite a mix of emotions and post-traumatic stress. Lots of little ideas here.
I'm not always into vampire
storylines, but I might be willing to give this one a try. Essentially, a rather powerful and brooding vampire become rather enamored with my character, who is perhaps a ballet dancer or something along those lines. He makes her his blood doll and favorite pet, but perhaps didn't realize what she would do when she found herself surrounded by that power. She is jealous and spiteful, and not afraid to hurt others to keep his attention and affections. Something like that could be fun?
Times are volatile, and the king is turning to his wife/sorceress even more than usual for her visions as well as other comforts. She senses his growing weakness, and also can see that there is someone else who will soon be competing for the throne. One of his top men is making a plot to kill the king and usurp the throne, and she wants in on this action, always needing to be with the man who has the most power. We can see how this relationship would develop, and plan out the betrayal of the king
's closest confidantes.
A young couple get together and rise to the throne of their country. They must deal with the struggle of constantly being watched, of losing their privacy. This becomes increasingly difficult because of the dark cravings that both have for each other. Itís hard for a woman to explain to the press that she Ėwanted- the bruises on her body, after all. This is pretty general, so Iím hoping to find someone to hash out the details with!
story from Greek Mythology is one I've been longing to play for a while. The idea of such a powerful, forceful god wanting an innocent goddess so badly that he would actually steal her away? Pretty sexy. What's more, the idea of him struggling with the need for her affection and approval... I think it's a storyline that has plenty of opportunities for twists and turns! (Taken)
***A darker version of the classic Beauty and The Beast
- A young woman trades places with her father in the beast's dungeon to save him. Their relationship grows. We can decided together which parts of the story to scratch (though I imagine that the singing clock and candelabra will not be in our version, haha).
A storyline based in Ancient Egyptian times
. Maybe a woman manipulates her way up to the Pharoah's side and becomes his wife, but it isn't all that she thought it would be. Maybe it genuinely started as a love, but she soon feels like nothing more than another one of his possessions. (Like the Pharoah is over Anak-su-namun in The Mummy movies!) Totally flexible with this!
A Professional athlete and his high school sweetheart
have an off and on relationship. Perhaps when he goes pro they split up, thinking its for the best. They spend a year or so apart from eachother before getting back into eachother's lives.
****A Jacqueline Kennedy/Aristotle Onassis
type of relationship. America's princess marrying the world's richest man. But not all the money in the world could make him match up to her deceased husband, the love of her life. Their marriage spawned from a mutual need, a mutual appreciation, and perhaps a mutual love. I would like to explore the dynamics of this relationship, and maybe give it a darker spin as well. I would be interested in maybe doing a separate storyline involving a couple's ascent to the Whitehouse
as well.Word Wrestling Entertainment
- This story would follow a relationship of a woman and a professional wrestler. Perhaps her own chosen career adds stress to things, but I'd like to see jealousy issues arrise with there being a blurred line between the man's "character'' and ''real'' life. Or maybe both characters are in the WWE, that could be fun too.
A well-known playboy and a notoriously flirtatious socialite
get together, and a tumultuous relationship ensues. Jealousy. Arguments. Wild parties. Dangerous fun. The possibilities are endless!
