Here's a Couple of Original Stroy Ideas That I Had:

A "Cthulhu Mythos" style horror story set several million years in the future. Species other than humanity have evolved to sentience, and Humankind plays the role of the horrible eldritch monstrosities from an ancient aeon.

-------------------------

Ok, here's another idea that relates to the Cthulhu Mythos. A sequel to the events in the stories pickman's Model and The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath which explores the dark connection between controversial artist and practitioner of the dark arts Richard Upton Pickman, and the invention of tentacle porn

Alternately, have the visual display of the supernova in earth's sky be the trigger, not the actual explosion.

Ok... here's another one... not completely original, but:

"As Saint Gulik awoke one morning from uneasy dreams, he found himself transformed in his bed into a furless ape..."

Just thought of another one:


A geneticist discovers that some of his colleagues have been recruited to work on a secret government project whose intent is to create a race of "Super Soldiers". Appalled by this development, the geneticist starts working in secret on a project of his own, using recombinant Bonobo DNA, (in conjunction with hybridization and chimerization) to create a race of "Super Hippies" to protest the Super Soldiers....

Well the idea was it was already exploded, but the equipment had only just been made to detect it had gone, in which case the main character might need to be some top guy at NASA or something.  The key event was going to be the sign of the supernova over the earth - the light passing through the solar system is the key to the rituals, what powers them to release the Old Ones from captivity.

So, anyway...


I guessing there's something that needs to be done to prevent the Old Ones from waking...  In true Dan Brown style, it needs to be completely banal, something so trite that you could probably even do it by accident.

In a bizarre twist of inexplicable events, George W. Bush and Barney Frank end up stranded on a deserted island in the South Pacific.  Will they be able to work together to find their way off the island?  Will the be able to put aside their partisan rhetoric to find common ground?  And don't look now, here come the natives with their Axes of Evil!!!!

Presumably there would be key components for such a ritual, some requiring exotic items (MacGuffin hunt) and it would have to be done in a certain time, in a certain place in exactly the right way.  Or else eldiritch things from the Mauve Zone will just eat all the cultists, or something.
"The thoughts of all men arise from the darkness. If you are the movement of your soul, and the cause of that movement precedes you, then how could you ever call your thoughts your own? How could you be anything other than a slave to the darkness that comes before? Only the Logos allows one to mitigate that slavery. Only knowing the sources of thought and action allows us to own our thoughts and our actions, to throw off the yoke of circumstance."

Ah, so the Old Ones are defeated because pencils are made with graphite these days, not lead, so the right ingredients aren't present at the right moment or some shit like that; and the pyramid collapses in upon itself.

:lol:

I've never read the original myself, but I suppose this spoof carried out well could make a very nice piece of Discordian literature.

It might be hard to pull it off with the same feel. It might also be a bad idea. Few people like to feel like they have been kicked in the stomach repeatedly for two hours.

I got the impression that in The Metamorphasis, the real horror was not that the guy became a bug, but how little that plot element changed anything.

If you want to know what this would look like as a novel instead of a short story, please read Will Self's Great Apes.

The runaway apple

The Golden Apple finally sprouted legs and decided to run away from Eris, but will s/he incur the wrath of Eris? Or will the Golden Apple find a new home?


I'm sure theres alot more you can add to that messed up thing ... that'd be an interesting childrens book
