That sounds cool.:)

Thanks! It's fanfic, actually, but it's pretty AU.

The plight of gifted children in America.

Yes, I am a total jerk. I recognize that.

Assassin books and pirate books turn kids into books for use in war. Kids revolt.

Pliny - 7-6-2008 at 09:40 PM

I keep hearing (seeing? reading?) you talk about your people turning into books book thing, and it sounds awesome.

Tainted.Sunshine - 7-8-2008 at 09:29 PM

Fourteen words, and it doesn't tell much of anything. My plot is so much more complicated. xD

I have two novels. First one:
"Girl learns to get along with freeloading older sister."

Second one:
"Girl gets trapped in underwater kingdom and falls in love."

Um, not the same girl. Obviously.

dronology - 7-9-2008 at 03:07 PM

"In the aftermath of war, revolutionaries and aristocrats vie for control of an empire."

I was never good at these one-sentence descriptions...

Damn, I'd take the great guy + baby. I'm having a hard enough time trying to find a mildly acceptable guy at college, much less a great guy.

Viking's lover dies, Viking rapes pirate, pirate goes to prison, Viking rescues pirate, the end.

Evil skinny redhead takes over the world; negroid blond-haired demon kills him with a ROSE.

Exactly 15. WOOT

(And yes, I know the black-skinned gene is incompatible with the blond-haired gene. His mother was a genetic cocktail.

And, I know, "WTF is a rose doing as a killing weapon? What is it gonna do, prick people to death with its itty-bitty thorns? Ooooh, I'm scared." Actually, it's a vicious fkkking thing. It does more than prick people to death.

And the weirdest part? Evil skinny redhead summoned the rose that sired the rose that killed him. Talk about IRONY.)

Prostitutes, poison testers, cutthroat dukes and other unfortunates scramble to fill a power vacuum.

Of course, it would also be accurate to say...

Storyteller searches for the next great epic. Does not find it. Finds father instead.

Or...

Mad hero-king learns his birthright, goes on adventures, murders his family, dies.

Yay for parallel plots!

"A prince, aided by a pope-in-disguise, smuggle eugenics information to a far planet."
