I have a really cool idea for one of my plot bunnies, the one where the two best friends make a pact. I haven’t looked over my notes or anything, and it’s been a good 2 months or so since I’ve worked on it. But I still want to go with the idea that she has some supernatural power or something and it ends up killing her. The only problem is deciding which thing I want to go with.
I have 3 categories- magical beasts and creatures, superpowers, and other. I want it to be somwhat realistic…or at the very least, the teensiest bit plausible. Like fairie blood is toxic when mixed with human blood. Or she can heal people but it shortens her life a little each time she does it. I definitely want to go with something like that…something that’s she’s done her whole life, something she does not knowing it’s killing her each time she does it, or some kind of magical blood that is deadly when combined with another type of blood. It’s definitely intriguing, and I’m not sure which one I like more. Maybe I can find some way to combine both, because depending on whatever creature I go with, there are probably special abilities that go along with it. I have lists, I just need to do a little more research on some of the creatures to see if anything seems super-interesting.
This is why I like to wing it, as much as possible, because I hate deciding on things! I know I could change it later, but my stupid inner editor starts harping on me about making sure it’s the right decision, because you don’t want to make the wrong one. And just when I think she’s gone…she randomly appears!
I think today, I’m going to try working on this plot bunny, and see if I can actually decide on something!
