and here I only picked the most popular by accident because it was the only scifi choice and I think I've finally had my fill of fantasy for awhile. ;)

I'm kinda surprised that one bubbled up to the top, actually. Good thing I've been writing on it for a while. :)

....all of the above? :P Definitely intrigued by how circus people would go about causing the apocalypse. (Gee, who knew? Clowns ARE evil!) Though post-Civil War gives it that fun politically incorrect "freak show" vibe too... HMMMMM.

I could not possibly invent a fantasy world more vivid and ripe with possibility than Reconstruction.

This is the sort of thing that shakes me to the core. Whenever asked "what do I find interesting," I always pick the thing which almost nobody else finds interesting.

Busy. Busy. Busy. Busy. Busy. Busy. Busy. Busy. Busy. Busy. Busy. Busy.

I'm not exactly sitting at a table in the Overlook hotel typing out - all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy - but sometimes I feel close to it.

I miss DA. It shouldn't be much longer.

Bad Chihuahua: Adult Pixar Movie Pitch

Post-modern, post-Bush, post-economica-
apocalyptica, Mexicalli Chihuahua, Salazar Delgado,
strides the blasted land in search of bones and freebies,
Bank CEO asses to chomp, and revenge for the loss
of his beloved Master, Jobo Obrégon, killed
by Mexican border guards while attempting to sneak
illegally into Mexico in search of a job.

Salazar’s got a dime bag of Remax attitude to snort
and little patience for spin, Kapital, Ford or Freud.
When the CIA finds him Vegas outside of the Belagio
pissing in the Singing Fountain, two field agents
flipping escort-service baseball cards at passersby
chase him through the bare-titty Cirque de Soleil
show, then etc., etc.

"A streetwise wizard is tapped to save the life of a demigod, who is the brother of the woman he loves." and "A young giant and an escaped female gladiator race to find the cure to an ancient curse." stood out to me the most of those, but I'd likely read all of them. :D

Thanks, sir. :ahoy: I'm practicing "loglines." If I can't tell you what it is in one sentence, it needs fixing.

All the fantasy ones sound cool, and i would love to read about anarchist harlequins, but as a huge Sci-Fi fan, i vote for the Mining station.

They aren't anarchist harlequins, they're apocalyptic harlequins. Big difference. :D

Haha since I know the deal behind at least three of these, I must say ALL but that I vote for anything with Talent in it based on the fact that he is so hot

I'm practicing with "loglines," or one-sentence synopses of plots. As you've noticed, some of these are for things I've already written, others are for stuff in development.

I'm about eight episodes into that Talent thing at the mo. I refuse to post anything until I get to the end, though. Obvious reasons.

O yes, good stuff, I should little taglines too. Good practice. Tho not really many people care about my DA account anymore, maybe that's to do with the fact I never post writing haha. >_> woops.

AND FINE

that's half of my feeling too, re: never posting.

i wanna see the pilot stick the rebellion up the ass of corporate muckitymucks,
and then save the earth using the chemicals that made up the corporations' greedmongers.
(if that's how the story's gonna go ;p)

Do you read sci-fi at all? If so, you should check out The Moon is a Harsh Mistress by Robert Heinlein. It's very stick-it-to-the-Man. :)

actually, I'd read all of them, but can't imagine how circus performers could bring about Armageddon. That is, providing they were just circus people and not aliens or space pirates or godlings in disguise. And that female warrior and outcast prince look like people I've met. :D

Thanks! I'm reading Blake Snyder's Save the Cat right now, and one of the things he recommends is coming up with a "logline" or one-sentence synopsis of a story before going any further. So, I'm practicing.

Good job. You might up the ante a bit if it was "A warrior nun(sister?) and outcast prince . . . " (btw, I can still see the illusion of them erupting out of the water to save our favorite outcast)

The more detail you can pack into that one line, the better it works.
