From the Ashes of War Genre:
Post WWII Munich, Germany 1957Concept:
His past was simple: he had rigidly served the Reich, and belonged to the Nazi party.
She had been a young woman who grew up in Berlin during the war years, and knew the hardships under the Russian occupation.
Two displaced individuals found one another through circumstance after the war.
It was in the city of Munich, the birthplace of the Nazi Party, which the two met, fell in love, and married.
Under the American occupation, the city was steadily restored, rebuilt, and it reflected the will and determination of the German people in the state of Bavaria. New lives and new opportunities arose from the ashes of war, new experiences awaiting them...
But present lives can be haunted by the past. One pull of a wayward thread can unravel so much...Secrets can spiral out of control. Emotions can be destructive.
Does one have the strength to forgive?
Can one elude those who hunt for war criminals?Notes:
Requesting an individual to write from the perspective of either character, and from the point-of-view of the Axis. Looking to explore the themes of survival, romance & marriage, the consequences of rape, crimes of war, etc.
Of How It All Ends TakenGenre:
1920s Prohibition AmericaConcept:
America was the land of opportunity, of dreams, and immigrants flooded to the new land—in desperation, in want of hope, penniless and emotionally starved—to start a life anew. Chances were taken, but once through the gates of Ellis Island, once through the stations of inspection, one did not always find themselves welcomed, and it became a struggle to survive. No better was it than the homelands.
Violence escalated in Hell’s Kitchen…
Warehouses stored bootleg whiskey…
Crime became rampant.
She was Irish, the working class poor, and she resided in an overcrowded tenement with her siblings as they attempt to make ends meet.
Her brother was a boxer, once a soldier for the IRA, and his past never escaped him. Deadly, he could be, when required. His promoter, an Irish crime lord, asked him to take a fall in a match. It was during this meeting in which she would meet her future suitor for the Irish crime lord had a business partner with him: a well groomed self-made gentleman, a former immigrant, a Sicilian.
Being hit with the ‘thunderbolt’, lust, obsession and jealousy never knew mankind to be reasonable. The Sicilian would want her, would have her, and their worlds would collide.
Romance there would be chased by hardships, and blossoms of appreciation followed by tragedy. They would become an American dream.Notes:
Looking for a partner (gender not important) to write from the point-of-view of the Sicilian. Looking to explore the themes of lust, obsession and jealousy; the rise from poverty, or the making of the American dream and the possible threats of losing it all; violence; pregnancy or the risk of; cultural differences etc.
