My Little Pony fanfiction set in a chiche evil mirror universe setting where Nightmare Moon is in charge, Twilight Sparkle's reports are on the subject of 'why it is better to be feared than to be loved' instead of 'the magic of friendship', and eventually everyone gets made into glue.

hey you wanted us to ignore it in the other thread, so maybe just keep your MLP fetish to /r/clopclop eh?

srsly what makes you think anybody cares what you fap to?

I really want to write an account of how Norway responded to the horrible Islamist terror attacks on 22 July 2011 with "more democracy and more openness".

This wasn't a suggestion for a clopfic, this was a suggestion for a non-sexual fanfic set in a dystopian toltalitarian regime and in which everybody eventually gets killed. The idea that it would be funny for My Little Pony characters to get turned into glue is one that I hit upon before the current fad started, and the idea of Nightmare Moon/Princess Luna running a toltalitarian regime is satirical and came from the realization that most of the advice in in Principe could apply to princesses just as easily as it can to princes.

Ah yeah, of course you're right, very different thing. No idea why your story idea reminded me of that thing you wanted us to ignore and forget about :roll:

I am shocked that this is not the case.  Shocked, I tell you.

Work focussing on characters in London with backdrop of the riots, in a disconnected, calm tone about the complexity of different situations.
If sheep entrails could in any way be related to the weather, i.e. sheep trails only originate where it rains, then you could use it as an accurate model for discerning what the weathers going to be like. Either, sheep shit makes it rain, or raining makes sheep shit. Sheep don't shit "randomly" sheep shit after they eat, it doesn't rain "randomly" it rains after water collects in the atmosphere.

-A cyberpunk retelling of the Christian gospels in which Saint Paul is a spambot that has somehow gained sentience.

-A combination of the plot of the cartoon show Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends from Cartoon Network, and plot of the short stroy The Circular Ruins by Argentenian science fiction writer Jorge Borges. (this makes sense if you're familiar with the premises of these works, which both involve the creation of living creatures through sheer force of will and power of imagination and which I would like to link together using that common thread as a jumping-off point)

Inspired by the latest Skilluminati post (on James Angleton):

In the late 1940s, while trudging through files and testimonies of Nazis, the KGB discover evidence of the collusion of Allen Dulles and his cronies in the financing of the Nazis.

Using this information, the KGB manage to compromise the Director of the CIA.  He sets the Counterintelligence Desk on wild goose chases, looking for moles and infiltrators everywhere.

Only, someone within Angleton's secret CI team, the Special Investigation Loop, starts to suspect something is not right...

(of course, the most interesting thing about this, as a story, is that it is entirely possible, given Dulles allegedly did help the Nazi regime, that Angleton apparently got his job as CI chief because he wouldn't polygraph Dulles and his closest allies and that for years there was hints of a mole somewhere near the very top of at least one of the NATO alliance intelligence services).

Edit: you could also do more updated versions of this, with an alliance with Al-Qaeda standing in etc but I think nothing quite beats the Cold War for that good old time feeling of paranoia.

A story following the life of a member of a boy band in the distant dystopian future. The protagonist is, as I said, a member of a boy band and is among the latest in one of a handful of lines of  genetic clones created by the RIAA specifically for the purpose of staffing boy bands. In fact, the lead singer of a different boy band is part of the same line and physically and genetically identical to him; this fact does not prevent fans of both bands from debating on which of them is hotter.

How about something similar to L'ecole du Libertinage by The Most Honorable Marquis De Sade, but exploring one of the other deadly sins, other than lust. Maybe gluttony, or wrath.

What if some cult develops a protein that activates the higher circuits of the human population, and let it roam free through the world?

A freak electrical storm wreaks havoc and destroys the internet. Millions of Americans are left to be faced with a world without singing cat videos and butt porn.  Tensions mount as withdrawal kicks in.  And then, one little boy discovers a treasure from the ancient world when people used to play outside and communicate with each other face-to-face with vocalized words.  It's a frisbee. 
Cynicism is a blank check for failure.
