Long-Term Story IdeasThe Trial-Seeker:
In the Kingdom of Ennion, it is common for noblemen and women to partake in the Grand Trial upon coming of age, to be granted the title of Knight, and to claim one of the Kingdom's ancient Relics as their own by right, to add to their own Reliquary, and to thus increase their family's power. The Trial is arduous, each challenge within it spread across the distant reaches of the Kingdom, and it is a quest that must be done alone. However, what were to happen if two Trial-Seekers were to meet on the road- the Trial must be taken alone, but it's hard to travel alone when there's another person following the exact same path as you. The roads are long and lonely, and the nights cold; what could bloom between two, who find each other when all others must be alone?Possible Themes:
M/Any, Fantasy, Magic, Romance, Forbidden Romance, AdventureMeeting Again: Disclaimer- this story focuses heavily on the idea of reincarnation, and non-linear timelines.
You and I have lived a thousand times, across a myriad of years, though not sequentially- each time we die, we are reincarnated at another point in time, future or past, and we have no control over it. This complicates things when the first time you meet someone is the hundredth time they've met you? I'd like to explore this concept- it's modern day, and the two of us have a chance meeting, except one of us has a sudden realization that we know the other one; how does the other react to being pursued by someone who knows all about them, knows how to best make them happy, but with no memory of that person?Possible Themes:
Romance, (Long-term) Courtship, Non-linear memories, ExperimentalLife on the Rim (Star Wars):
The Outer Rim, home to many worlds, and many people, where no governing body has ever truly held power. It's barely any surprise that bandits, pirates, and all other sorts of ne'er-do-wells call it home. When a lone gunslinger manages to cause enough trouble on one of those far-flung planets, you're the one sent to bring him in or take him down. But you meet that gunslinger, for the first time, true identities unknown, and an ember of chaos burns up your plans- there's a spark of attraction that you never could have expected. What do you do then? Whether you're an Imperial hunting down a lawbreaker, a Jedi keeping the peace, or a bounty hunter looking to make a few credits is up to you- era is flexible as well.Possible Themes:

Each year, the possibility of a truly intelligent artificial entity grow more and more possible, as scientists learn more and more about the way the human mind functions. AGIs (Artificial General Intelligences) are commonplace in society, performing all manners of tasks for people, but are, as yet, incapable of 'creativity' as we see it, or emotion- or, nearly incapable of it. A highly advanced AGI, created from the digitally mapped memories and thoughts of its human creator is about to enter testing; enter you. Selected from a group of subjects based on your personality and history, you will take up residence in a smart-home with the AGI and its human creator. Intending to test how an advanced AGI and a human will interact as so-called 'housemates', your only social contact for a multi-month stretch will be with each other. What if the human housemates were to become involved? And what of the AGI, whose avatar and memories are near-identical to its creator's own appearance and memories? An emergent love story, perhaps also with an emergent love triangle? Mostly, a nonconventional story of romance, uncertainty, and societal norms, for anyone who may be interested in such things.Possible Themes:

My character is a 'creative type' living in the suburbs of a big city in an inherited property; he works only as much as he has to, usually doing odd jobs and commissions, and spends most of his time supporting his friends' bands, cooking, and writing. Possible Themes: A Gentleman Magician:
Magic- long the queer interest of the rich and idle, few who take interest in the occult can actually muster magical power, but there are those among the scholars and the strange, who have the gifts required to take up the title of Magician. I am one such individual, a minor-to-mid-importance aristocrat in England, heir to my parents fortunes and in want of profession, so I have plied myself to the task of becoming a Magician, but lack training and guidance. You, on the other hand, have great skill and talent, but are 'unusual' in some way- perhaps you're a common street magician with a true calling to the craft, a scholar with strange proclivities, or a faerie lord or lady who has taken an interest in humans, or perhaps, simply a woman who refuses to accept the role assigned to her by men and follows her own path. In any event, I seek your tutelage, despite whatever taboo or difficulty would accompany a gentleman of my status associating with you, and perhaps, over time, our lessons bloom into something else, be it passion, romance, or mere lust.Possible Themes:

We're rival mages, vying for the same seat on the council. We constantly find ways to undercut each other, cursing each other's name at every turn- but we've never actually met. Secluded in our distant laboratories at the guild, we've gone about hating each other from afar, but could a chance meeting and an opportunity to actually speak as equals change all that?Possible Themes:
