So, after all this time roaming in the forum (and a lot of procrastinating on my end), I’ve decided that I should do something productive for a change and do a story. Now, admittedly, I’m not exactly savvy with Choice-Script and also uni life will be taking priority, but I am hopeful that I attempt to do one at the right time. Problem is, I have an imaginative mind and unfortunately, I have come up with 5 story concepts. So I’ve decided let you guys recommend which is the more interesting one. I can promise you all , irrespective of which choice is picked, a story that is (hopefully) complex, filled with drama, existing in its own universe, plot twist and all, one which should be most satisfying.
Now the choices:
- The only easy day…was yesterday (Action)
To any eagle eyed user in the forum, they may have recalled I had originally try to conceive this idea a long time ago. Of course it panned out, but the idea was and still is a solid one. To give you a basic idea, you, a soldier, were captured during a mission by enemy combatants. As they torture you in various ways, you reflect back on your life, from childhood to now. These experiences, will not only determine your fate, but perhaps the whole world as you must also avert a possible catastrophe.
- The Noble Companions (Fantasy)
25 Years ago, the world of Lemuria was saved from a Dark sorcerer by an alliance of Men, Elves, Dwavres, Orcs and Fae. You, an orphan from the final battle, are taken in by the Elven king. Now, on the coronation of your adoptive brother, a prophecy is foretold, where the sorcerer is said to return with an untold evil. You, your brother and other royal heirs are tasked with the duty to prevent this from becoming true, though how far the costs and sacrifices will be,ironically, falls to you.
- Underdogs (Sports)
When a career ending injury ends your prospective football/soccer career, you lose/forsake your family, friends, your love for the sport, everything. Then, an unusual second chance comes knocking on your door when you are offered to coach your old team to win the prestigious Intercontinental Cup. Will you be able to redeem your team, reconcile with your family and finally, yourself ?
- Gifted (Fantasy)
To you, a thirteen year old, your life is most unusual; 5 years ago, you were found near the city of London without any memories of your name, your parents or even your past life. Placed in an orphanage, you believed nothing else stranger would come from this…till you learned that you’ve being accepted into the renowned Meridian academy, cause you apparently possess magical abilities. Whilst this revelation astonish you, you must now try to navigate the life of being a magical being and a student of aforementioned school, all the while trying to find clues to your past.
- To war…again (Action/fictional with maybe a slice of comedy ?)
A long time ago, you were cursed for betraying your countryman in an important war. Now you are cursed to live through time but also enter war when it is declared. The only way you can escape your curse is if you are on the winning side of history. Sounds easy enough right ? Just one small problem; you were also cursed to fight on the LOSING side.
Now to be fair on myself, all of them will take a lot of brainstorming of names, concepts and whatnot, adding to the fact, 2 out of 5 books could actually become a potential series. Hence, I will most likely ask some users for some creative advice, otherwise I will more that willing collaborate with others as well. Anyhow, I will set up a poll just to gauge public interest and I welcome anyone’s opinion and discussion, especially about how I’m way over my head.
P.S. I do admit, some if not all my story titles are not original. If you have any suggestions, let me know.
- The only easy day…was yesterday
- The Royal Companions
- To war…again
Edit:Ok, so I just realise I made a mistake with the poll, where I meant it to me single choice and not multiple choice, clumsy me. So I restarted it on the third post ( sorry to those who voted earlier) so that people choose the No.1 preference. No pressure . P.S. don’t mind my vote, another mistake.
