ITT: Original Story Ideas

Cramulus:
This is like the One Line Meme Bomb thread... just post quick ideas, maybe a few of 'em will be awesome.

It's challenging to come up with plotlines that haven't been raped to death yet!


I started off brainstorming "movie ideas", but movies are very large... some of these might work better as short stories or sketches or something.


Computer Animated sperm undertake a magical journey on their way to personhood. This is a suspense drama because although all the sperm are on the same team, they're also in competition. Oh, and the sperm's personalities are modeled after the Ninja Turtles.



A guy working at a beer factory discovers a flaw he can use to get a truck full of free keg beer every weekend. He then goes on road trips, getting into crazy adventures and being the life of the party. But how can he go back to his boring factory job after having such bad ass weekends?



A guy is given three wishes. One wish later, he's the last man on earth. Still tons of women, though!



A ex-hippie scientist tries to invent the next LSD and accidentally invents a drug that gives him telepathy. Rather than keeping this a secret, he markets the hell out of it. Soon, nearly everybody in the country is a telepath. They try to outlaw the drug, but court rooms are now a total mess. Eventually it's taken back off the market, but now nobody can cope with not being able to read minds. So instead of building a better, happier world with LSD, he inadvertently turns it into a paranoid asylum.



In a world where you can learn new things by plugging hardware into your brain, disinformation trolling becomes a method of warfare. Fifty years later, the world is in a coma of disinformation. Everybody in the world holds wildly innacurate beliefs. An team of hackers / information scientists tries to liberate humanity from the blanket of delusion they've been living under. This is, of course, considered terrorism.

AFK:
A young man from Saratoga Springs had a dream of becoming the next industrial metal superstar.  However, after joining the fabric of the local open-mic scene, he is quickly immersed in an alternate lifestyle filled with caffeine, noxema, and bad poetry.  By chance, a young woman passing through Saratoga Springs has a hankering for a latte and stops in during one of his performances.  She gives young Luke a total makeover and talks him into auditioning for American Idle.  In a bizarre twist, he falls in love with Randy Jackson and they run off to Mexico to raise ostriches and have lots of sex. 

Cain:
Actually, that last one of yours Cram was very similar to an idea of mine: of memetic police who oversee the noosphere and stop aberrant, cancerous tumours getting out of control.  Yours adds a mechanical twist I hadn't figured out for mine yet though.

I may run with that, because its hella cool.

 :thanks:

another twist that occurs to me is that the heroic hackers are actually the delusional ones who have been targeted by actual terrorists.

Homeful: The movie follows the life of "extreme downshifters". Once, they were white collar slaves. Now they have chosen voluntary homlessness, considered "extreme downshifting". These homeless have to prove themselves in the world of the homeless, and do so by being more EXTREME. (in the day glo mountain dew snowboarding sort of way) You survive by eating rats? Oh yeah? I survive by eating turds!

They discover a law that says that if you live somewhere for five years, you can claim it as yours. So they move into an occupied mansion and try to live under the radar for five years. They're discovered, of course. But then the owners and the squatters have to team up to fight the town zoning committee, who wants the mansion replaced with an office building.

Happy ending: They beat the zoning committe by making the mansion a religious haven. The main character falls in love with the rich girl who owns the mansion. They start a commune-cult on the mansion property. Movie ends with corporate fatcats smoking crack with homeless people and everybody is all friendly.
